We felt very lucky to have Rev. Saundra as our wedding officiant. Not only is she a lovely person to work with, shes very experienced in all aspects of wedding planning, so she can offer as much, or as little, guidance as you need. We wanted a lighthearted ceremony with unique, personal vows. Were writers, but we had no experience writing for weddings. Plus, we started less than a month before our date, so timing was tight! From the start, Saundras confidence was reassuring. She wrote the first draft of the ceremony and gave us lots of ideas and suggestions. She also gave us manageable deadlines to keep us on track. We went back and forth on versions until the ceremony and vows felt right. Her edits were spot-on. On our wedding day, the ceremony went beautifully. Saundras calm, joyous presence commanded the room. We were so impressed with her! And so were our guests. It takes a special sensitivity to come across in a way thats lighthearted and serious at the same time. Our guests laughed in all the right places and were moved by the love that came through. Saundra is a natural talent. One special moment for us: We asked a family member whos developmentally disabled to be our ringbearer. The way Saundra guided him was so gentle and sweet well never forget it. Wed give Saundra more than 5 stars if we could, and would recommend her to anyone. Youll know youre in good hands with Rev. Saundra.
My Husband and I got engaged in September 2016 and Jeff officiated our wedding in December 2016. My Husband is Portuguese Catholic and I am Indian Hindu. As you might imagine, finding the right person to officiate our wedding, with only about 3 months to work with, while ensuring our and both our families wishes were considered, AND taking care of all the other wedding planning (catering, flowers, DJ, photographer, etc.) - COULD have been an extremely challenging task! Luckily, during one of my lunchbreaks from work, I googled "wedding officiants bay area". I clicked on Thumbtack, and the website asked me a few questions, such as wedding date and address. I submitted my answers and didn't think much of it, and went back into work. When I finished work, I checked my phone, and I had about 10 responses! Each officiant had a little blurb about themselves, but I was really drawn to what Jeff Finger had to say. I called him and he was friendly and kind. He asked to meet with my Fiancee and myself, and was very accommodating about where to meet and respectful of our time (and stress levels lol!). When we met, Jeff wanted to know about us as a couple, our path to marriage, and not only what we envisioned for our wedding, but also for our life together. We left the meeting feeling happy, hopeful, and excited! There was no doubt in our mind that Jeff was what he were looking for. Leading up to the wedding, Jeff sent us an outline of the ceremony. This was so helpful to us, because it added structure our entire wedding. He also checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was going well - again, this was super helpful! On the day of the wedding, things were chaotic. It rained and guests were late. Jeff was flexible, calming, and told us everything was going to be ok. And he was absolutely right. Our wedding day was beautiful and perfect, and a day I will remember all my life! Jeff officiated our wedding with emotion, confidence, and professionalism. Many of our guests commented on the beauty of the ceremony, and the way Jeff included everyone seated in the venue, and how they felt they were a special part of our wedding day. We were so fortunate to find Jeff, and highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding!
If there was a ten star rating, I would give it to Mr Ben Miyaji a very Profesional wedding officiant. He was very attentive during my wedding planning. He kept in touch till my wedding date. He arrived before the time set, and he performed a simple brief ceremony as we asked. Thank you so very much Mr Miyaji. Toni and Ron.
He was the best! I would highly recommend him if you want someone who is punctual, respectful,reliable, and professional. Unfortunately our wedding ceremony was not able to start on time due to a personal matter that took place. Our wedding was suppose to start at 3pm and he had another wedding ceremony to do at 4:30. I communicated with him and let him know what happen and our situation. I asked him would it be possible if he can go to his next appointment since we were not ready yet, and then come back. He said yes he will be able to do so, which made me feel so much better because i was starting to panic and I didn't know what we were going to do if he had not been able to come back. He was able to, so I was so happy that we had that option. After he was done with the other ceremony he let me know he was done and asked did I still need him to come back I told him yes, and he came back. He prayed with us before the ceremony and after that he performed our ceremony and he did a wonderful job. I am really thankful and appreciate that he was still able to officiant our wedding even after the setback we had. Thanks again I really really appreciate it, and by the way I loved how you put our love story together, it was great! If anyone was is looking for a great officiant, like I mention earlier, I would highly recommend him as the one to perform your special ceremony.
Rev. Dr. Leslie was an awesome officiant. She could not have been better and more professional for our wedding event. I would recommend her to anyone!
My new husband and I were very happy with Rebeca's role as our officiant for our wedding at San Francisco City Hall. She was very easy to work with over email (we were planning from out of town) and worked with us in developing our ceremony service every step of the way. Thank you for marrying us!!
Andy was not only the officiant of my wedding but he is also my uncle, so my wedding ceremony was very special to me. However, if I could look back from an unbiased point of view and focus on The facts, I would still tell others that Andy is an awesome officiator! He spent much time rehearsing the script, however it did not come across as "over rehearsed". He was a natural speaker, paused when he should pause, was able to laugh along with us, and was clear and easy to understand. He added personal touches to the script and was ready to make any changes I had for him. Andrew is a great speaker and the ceremony was beautiful. After realizing I forgot to sign our official marriage license, Andy made a special trip to help me sign the papers the day after the wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better officiator!
We had a small wedding in Sonoma county and Phil was great, he was available on short notice. we also decided to have him sing a song for us. We chose on that was not on his list and he was able to learn it in about a few days before the wedding. All the wedding guest were surprised and loved it. Thanks Phil for being our officiant for our special day.
When my husband accepted a job at Apple, I didn't realize how far from my network of support we would be moving. An engagement ring, a move 3,000 miles across the country, and one adorable cat later, we were planning a destination wedding for 120 North-Easterners, and we were the destination. Shyamala felt like a little pieces of home. Originally from Long Island as well, she understood what type of wedding ceremonies we were used to. My husband and I are different religions, and so we decided not to focus on either during the ceremony. Shyamala helped us form the perfect ceremony that included family and tradition. The day was magical.
Sam is one of my dear friends! Met her on MS charity ride in 2012. She put her heart and soul to organize our Misfit team. She did outstanding job by putting 15-20ppl +bikes in vans and go to southern ca for 2 days ride! When came to my wedding, I had no doubt Sam was the person. I asked her not to make it religious yet spiritual She kept it 15-20 long as was requested and fun. She listened to our love stories beforehand, so She could bring our past way before my husband and I met and nicely lined it up with our present, showing why we meant to be together. She made it, magical, spiritual, fun, small music clips between, and well delivered!! Love my friend Sam, am so happy she gave us this honor to be part of our wedding🌹🦋💖!! She made it unique and all about us!!! Thank Sam making that important day majical for us!!
Sheryl is really amazing,are wedding ceremony was more than a job to her. She made sure that everything was better than planned she goes over every detail with you like a friend. I would recommend her to everyone..its really hard to balance emotions and situations when your getting married and Sheryl was there every step of the way. It actually seems like she's my wedding planner, counselor, and friend plus the person marrying us lol and she's so affordable...
I met with Reverend Steve three weeks before my wedding, He was incredibly organized and gave us so much helpful information. We talked about different scripts for the ceremony,i loved that i was able to really put it all together myself at home and get my husbands feedback about the script. Reverend Steve held a rehersal for us the night before the wedding. He directed the order of our routy group and then assigned the tasks to the wedding party for the ceremony. It went really quick, in about 30 mins. The wedding day, Reverend Steve came prepared and performed a really beautiful ceremony. He set the tone with light humor, which made forgetting to bring the coins and roses for the mothers less pressure. (I forgot the coins and roses) all went really well and i wouldnt change it. Thank You Revered Steve!
Picking Jessica was one of the most wise decisions we've made for our wedding. She was always on time, and her communication was clearly and timely. Most importantly, she took the time to understand our background and delivered a very touching homely. I love her and would highly recommend her!
Sara was amazing from the beginning of our wedding planning process all the way through our big day! I would recommend her to my closest friends and family. Her professionalism, dedication and true passion for the art is unprecedented. Thank you for making our day so special!
My partner and I, after 10 long years of being together, finally decided to tie the knot. Among the many decisions to be made re: our wedding was hiring the officiant. We are a diverse family unit, and wanted someone who was sensitive to our wishes. Rev. Gail turned out to be the perfect choice! She patiently endured our multiple changes to our vows, worked with the challenges of our venue,was very supportive to our needs, and basically took our worries away when we felt a bit overwhelmed from all the wedding details. I highly recommend her as a kind and professional wedding officiant. Thank you, Gail, for helping to make our special day go smoothly.
He was wonderful! He is very professional and seeks to help the couple all along the planning process through to your wedding day. What's stands out is how much he truly cares about you. You can tell he does this with the intention of helping couples. He also did premarital counseling for us and we truly made a friend in him. He is a real friend who is there whenever you need him most. When a mistake was made on our marriage license (not his mistake), he was there to help work it out for us without hesitation. Overall, he was knowledgeable, helpful, and truly cares about the people he works with. We were lucky to have him as our counselor and wedding officiant. We highly suggest him!
Rachael was my favorite part of our wedding. She is absolutely wonderful. She met with us 3 times before the wedding to get to know us and our love story. She incorporated parts of our story into the ceremony. We had a hand-fasting ritual which she thoroughly researched and made it work for us. We also had a tree planting ceremony - she thought of using a lemon tree for us because it fit our story well. We ended up forgetting our marriage license the day of the wedding and there was no way for us to go back home to get it. She was super understanding and was accommodating when we agreed to meet a week after the wedding. Everyone I talked to said that the ceremony was beautiful, all thanks to Rachael! She just overall went above & beyond. On top of all that, she's one of the sweetest people I've ever met! Thank you for everything, Rachael!
Sue was amazing. She more than exceeded our expectations. I've never been married and didnt really didnt know what to do or where to stand. Sue laid it all out and we got ahold of her just 7 days before the ceremony. She made our marriage so easy. She acted really professionally and handled all the paperwork for us. The wedding was awesome. Thanks Sue.
I highly recommend Sara Shendelman as a wedding officiant! She did my wedding with such warmth and enthusiasm, musical talent and professionalism, i couldn't have imagined anything better. The photographers even came up to me after and expressed to me what a unique and wonderful ceremony it was. She helped guide us through the planning process, allowing our personality and beliefs to shape the service, but providing the traditional foundation which we desired. She was such a delight to work with and so easy to get in touch with when I had questions, she made this stressed out bride feel completely at ease! The guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.
We absolutely loved Pastor Timothy as our wedding officiant! He was so helpful during the planning process of the flow of the ceremony. He has plenty of experience and brought up things we hadn’t thought about incorporating into the ceremony. We also had some Filipino traditions we wanted to incorporate and he was totally up for it and did a great job. His message during the ceremony was gospel-centered and so meaningful to us on our special day. Definitely would recommend him to officiate your wedding!
Devon Rubin officiated at our beautiful outdoor wedding. We had composed our own vows and she created a custom wedding ceremony that fit perfectly with our wishes. We would recommend her to any couple, whether a unique wedding celebration or a more traditional wedding,
