Ed was amazing I could not imagine anyone else officiating our wedding. I would recommend him to anyoneJul 31, 2017VerifiedSierra Wine Country Weddings's reply
Thank you Mary!! Your family made me feel like family :-)
Edward is amazing! He was very responsive whether it was email or text. We were having trouble with our vows and he provided us with a few samples. After seeing the samples, we were able to put our own personal touch on our vows. He also provided several sample scripts to give us a variety of options for what would be said during our wedding. What made it even better was that he was able to send us a video of a wedding he was the officiant for at the same venue we are using. It was awesome to see how things would be laid out and how the ceremony would go. You can't go wrong with choosing Edward to officiate your wedding.Jan 10, 2017Verified
Ed was so friendly, helpful, fast to respond and early to arrive to our wedding. We are so thankful we found him and would recommend him to anyone searching for a fantastic officiant.Aug 30, 2016Verified
Ed made a wonderful officiant at our wedding. We loved his personality and how very helpful he was.Aug 5, 2016Verified
Edward did a wonderful job as the officiant at our daughter's wedding. He worked with our daughter and her fiancée to help them develop their wedding vows, was always available for questions and handled the wedding and rehearsal very professionally but with just the right amount humor to make the ceremony relaxed. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.Apr 12, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I normally charge either $225 or $325. The cutoff is over 30 guests. I don't charge a travel fee. I do charge $75 to attend a rehearsal, as it prevents me from performing a wedding that day. If the Rehearsal is very close, I will normally waive that fee. I also include videotaping the couples wedding ceremony in HD (using two cameras) as a part of my package price. I make copies for the parents, and any other who may not have been able to attend. I also use a MP3 recorder to tape the audio of the ceremony, and add it to the wedding DVD if needed. I will normally e-mail the wedding audio that same evening so the couple have it to listen to on their honeymoon. I will also upload and e-mail the wedding video to them to watch on the honeymoon. I offer to mail the wedding license so it will be one less thing for them to be concerned about on their special day.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I send an e-mail introducing myself. Then I suggest a phone call to discuss their special day. I always suggest a meeting in person to make sure that the couple is comfortable with me. I send an Info Sheet to have the couple look over and fill out so we don't overlook or forget anything. I give as much assistance as they need, and I'm always available by phone or e-mail. I pride myself on answering quickly.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Not really applicable, but I do keep up on the latest trends so I can help the couples make informed decisions.
