We were happy and satisfied by choosing Dr. lake as our officiant for our wedding. We met him a week before our wedding and we share what we were looking for. We didn't want to have a long ceremony but we want to have a ceremony about us and what marriage means to us and that is exactly what he delivered. He stayed in contact with us about how to write our vows since that is what we chose to do. He provided advice and links to where to find guidance to write them. He gave a precise and very wise speech about what you need to do to have a successful marriage and we couldn't be happier. All our guests gave us compliments about his performance and charisma in our wedding. One of my friends is having her 15th wedding anniversary and they are thinking about hiring him for their vow renewal ceremony. You will not go wrong by hiring him for your ceremony.

My wife and I recently hired Bill to officiate our wedding. At first we were a bit hesistant because of the long distance and we needed somebody who would be willing to officiate a Jewish/Cathloic ceremony. After talking to Bill on the phone we knew we found our guy! Bill was not only affordable but he was super flexiblible, creative, and most importantly helpful! He actually listened to all of our crazy Jewish/Cathloic wedding ceremony ideas and he offered to incorporoate his own suggestions to make it a very classy yet personable ceremony. He lets you call and email as much as you need. He showed up to our ceremony over an hour early just like he said he would. Gave me peace of mind and one less stress to worry about.

Our wedding was on 11/4/2016 in Orange, CA. Bill was completely professional, caring, and provided a perfect ceremony. Bill provided great service from the first phone call. He assisted us with the vows and provided consistent contact prior to our wedding date. He was punctual and walked us through each step. Thank you Bill.

He was easy to talk about what we wanted with, and he helped us make sure it all happened. I could not have asked for a better wedding day officiant! Thank you Bill for all you helped us with.

Leslie is a wonderful speaker and is very down to earth. She was a pleasure to work with and she certainly added to the magic of our ceremony. She's also quick to respond and has very good communication. Our wedding was on 10/18/14 and it was a bride & bride non-religious ceremony. She was flexible and open to our needs. Thank you for adding your Leslie twist. Our guests thought you did a great job. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.

Don Foor was the officiant for our wedding on 4/27/16. He responded very promptly! From the first time we spoke up to our wedding day, he was very easy to work with, honest, friendly, flexible, and organized. He went through everything thoroughly and was patient with us, answering all of our questions. After speaking with him for just a few minutes, I knew I wanted to book him. We wanted our ceremony to be short and sweet. He was easy to communicate with and even arrived before we did to the event! He did exactly what he said he would. He even handled the marriage license signing and sending it off, taking that added pressure off us. I highly recommend him for your special day.

Pastor Brad not only was our wedding officiant, but provided my wife and I with great suppositions and insight for our big day. Our ceremony was not what you would call traditional as far as setup, but it turned out to be a dream wedding for us with the help of Pastor Brad. Even with a minor hiccup on my part for forgetting to tell Pastor Brad that we wouldn't be doing our own vows, he kept the ceremony rolling without a hitch. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun, caring and experienced wedding officiant! My wife and I look forward to a long lasting relationship with Pastor Brad.

Our ceremony was short, sweet and personal just as we wanted. Brad was awesome! Thank you Brad! Raul and Amber

We had Pastor Mike as an officiant for our wedding. It was an outdoor backyard wedding. Pastor Mike arrived and explained what he was going to do for us. Everything looked great and when it came time to deliver at the ceremony he did a fantastic job! He incorporated the story we sent him through email and used it as a reference throughout the ceremony. Capturing everyone's attention at the ceremony the entire time! I would highly recommend Pastor Mike for any wedding! He was easy to get a hold of and great to work with!

Mike is an amazing man and pastor. He did a wonderful job with our wedding ceremony. He is a kind, genuine person who took his time getting to know my husband, whom he didn't know before this. In addition to being a wedding officiant, he genuinely grows to care about the people he is working with. He has a great sense of humor and will make your ceremony personal to the both of you and not "just like any other ceremony." I would definitely recommend Mike!

On our wedding day, we didn't have The typical ceremony and reception. We only had a reception and we exchanged vows a week after then wedding I had found Reverend Camilo off thumbtack. He was very personable, thoughtful, and his services were very reasonable priced. He tailored the wedding vows to what we had requested, which was to be quick, no fuss and simple. He sent me a copy of the vows for final approval and told me that I could make adjustments to the vows if I like. I would highly recommend calling Reverend Camilo for officiant services.

Maricela is a fantastic Marriage Celebrant. We highly recommend her services. We met Maricela through thumbtack.com, She has such a warm friendly personality we felt very comfortable discussing our wedding ideas and vows with her. She was very professional and very knowledgeable with the legalities and formal proceedings. She was always only a phone call away as our big day approached and answered all our questions (even the silly ones) On our wedding day she arrived when she said she would and the ceremony was perfect. We had lots of complements from our guests as to how beautiful the ceremony was and how well spoken our celebrate was. Thank you Maricela we had a wonderful day.

Gianina was personable and the officiant showed up on time the day of our wedding. However they were both late for our initial meeting (by about 40 minutes) and for our rehearsal (50 minutes) which we reminded them they needed to be on time for. They didn't give any notice of their tardiness until they were already late and Gianina even seemed upset that I was bothered that they kept us, our wedding coordinator and our wedding party waiting almost an hour. Day of was a success though and the ceremony was beautiful. They're a decent price, but we might have considered using someone more professional who valued our time more had we had more time to look.

When my wife and I were cold-calling wedding officiants, we weren't sure what exactly we were looking for, but hoped we would be able to find someone who matched our unconventional style. When we spoke with Rev. Doreene for the first time, she made it clear that she believed in love and made us feel special. She read her version of vows to us over the phone and my wife and I both ended up in tears- we originally wanted to write our own, but Doreene's version was so beautiful and touching that WE JUST KNEW Rev. Doreene was the right person to marry us! She provided us with a wonderful ceremony guide and allowed us to add in a couple symbolic ceremonies like the sand ceremony and water blessings. She even learned some phrases in Hebrew to accommodate my wife's Jewish ties! She made our day so meaningful and special! I'm so glad we found her!

We feel so very blessed that God led us to Pastor Doreene as our Wedding Minister! Her personable demeanor and fun spirit put us immediately at ease. After getting to know us and our story, she offered such beautiful vows which spoke to our hearts and provided the spiritual foundation for our intimate ceremony at The Montage, Laguna Beach. She incorporated our request for use of a Unity Candle at the last minute without a hitch - I think 'flexibility' must be her middle name! Her voice is so clear and soothing. She led us through the entire service without us needing to memorize anything, which removed the stress, allowing us to focus on enjoying the experience! BOTTOM LINE: Pastor Doreene is exceptionally skilled and we highly recommend her as Your Wedding Minister!

Yesenia is the absolute best !!! We found her here on thumbtack about 2 weeks before our wedding. She responded so quickly and we set up a time to talk on the phone and get to know us a little and what we wanted for our special day. After the phone call we set up a meeting in person to go over everything one more time. We talked about what type of ceremony we wanted and our vows and we also got to tell her our story. She is so sweet and we felt so comfortable with her that there is nobody else I would have wanted to marry us but her. She also speaks Spanish which was a huge bonus for my family and she was able to incorporate that into the ceremony which meant a lot to me. She also helped with our wedding vows and was able to come to our rehearsal. The day of the wedding she came early and was there ready to go and even helped calm our nerves . The ceremony was beautiful and there's nothing I would change about it!!!! Yesenia also took care of sending our marriage license to the county clerk so that we wouldn't have to worry about it. All in all she's just amazing at what she does and you will love how genuine and sweet she is.

I don’t normally write reviews like this, but after recently getting married I wanted to recommend Maria Felipe as an absolutely wonderful officiator. My husband and I wanted a customized ceremony that recognized our union and commitment to one another.  Maria was absolutely supportive and encouraging of the sort of wedding we wanted to have. We discussed at length the type of ceremony we were looking for and Maria was brilliant at understanding our wishes and offering suggestions for how to achieve our perfect ceremony. Like most brides I was nervous before the ceremony, but Maria absolutely calmed my nerves and talked me through the ceremony. Maria felt like an integral part of the wedding party and guests commented repeatedly on how wonderful and supportive she was.  I highly recommend Maria, I cannot imagine a more supportive and friendly experience.

With today’s evolving definition of spirituality and family it’s nice to know that there are Spiritual Leaders like Maria Felipe out there. Our family is far from traditional. We are comprised of many different faiths and nationalities. It was hard for me to find the right setting for my son’s Baptism. That was until I found Maria Felipe. We held my son’s baptism at our home with our closest friends and family. It was spiritual, intimate, and personalized. Maria’s beautiful ceremony touched us all on a deep level. She made our son’s baptism memorable and special. We are so thankful for her dedication to making our special day perfect. I highly recommend her for those families out there who desire a more intimate and personalized baptism for their children no matter what their age. It was an unforgettable and beautiful experience.

About

I may look young, but I'm an experienced, educated man who can provide exactly the kind of officiant services that you are looking for at your wedding! Maybe more to the point, I'm a great listener and I'm flexible in how I work (and the rate I ask) and more than anything, it's most important to me to provide you with exactly the services you need in exactly the style and tone of your wedding. I am particularly interested in providing officiant services to those who may have trouble finding someone to perform their wedding ceremony. Whether you are a same-sex couple (or gender non-binary, non-conforming, or fluid!) or just happen to have financial limitations, I can provide the highest quality professional wedding services to you! In California (and all states that recognize ordination from the American Marriage Ministries) I am legally certified to perform marriage ceremonies! Please see my photos for my certification. *** Here is a complete breakdown of the services I offer and pricing! My standard rate is only $250 for all of the services I offer. To reserve my time, I ask for a $150 non-refundable deposit to be paid to me at the time you hire me. The balance of the fee is due the day of the ceremony. In the very unlikely case that I must cancel, I will return your deposit to you. However, if for any reason you must cancel the wedding or decide not to use my services, I don't refund your deposit (of course, in extenuating circumstances, I will make an effort to return as much of it as possible). 1. Performance of a wedding ceremony of your desired length, including readings by me and from loved ones, pre-written vows--or you may provide your own--and any additional rituals you'd like to have as part of your day (for example, blending of sand, handfasting, etc.) I'm very flexible and happy to work with you to give you exactly the ceremony you want! Also, I do not ask any additional fee based on length unless the ceremony is planned to be longer than 30 minutes. (As an additional note to this, I do not change extra if the wedding is photographed or videographed. Both are welcome!) 2. Two 30-minute consultations in advance of the ceremony via skype, phone, or FaceTime (can also be in-person). During these consultations, we'll discuss the type of ceremony you'd like to have--making sure we're on the same page about everything I described above and getting all the details figured out so that your big day is perfect! Some other things we'll discuss include: - What you'd like me to wear. I own a nice suit, but I'm comfortable going casual if you prefer! - The length of your ceremony as well as your desires for the tone of the ceremony. I'll offer two or three ceremony scripts, which we can discuss and adjust together so that you're 100% happy with it! - I'm also a professional writer! For an additional fee (see the bottom of this list), I can write you an entirely original ceremony, including vows. - Specific readings (if any) that you'd like me to do during your ceremony, whether these are pre-written by you or from existing spiritual text or other non-religious texts. I am happy to provide some suggestions! - Hand-in-hand with that, we'll talk about any other acknowledgements you'd like me to make during the ceremony. This might be as simple as thanking specific family members for traveling to your wedding, or it could just be a note on the particular way you'd like me to ask everyone to be seated. - Any additional rituals you'd like to include. Again, I'm happy to provide suggestions! - Finally--we'll confirm the order that you'd like everything to happen during your ceremony. Basically, we'll put together a script that I will work from on the big day! Generally it's safe for me to assume the kiss comes last, but I like to be flexible and make sure everything happens exactly they way you'd like! 3. One ceremony rehearsal of up to one hour. I not only offer my attendance at your rehearsal--I really prefer to be there to smooth out any wrinkles together! If the rehearsal does not happen the same day as the ceremony, I ask a small additional fee of $50. (If the rehearsal lasts more than one hour or requires significant travel, I may ask a larger additional fee, but that would be discussed at the time of hiring.) 4. My attendance at the wedding venue up to two hours prior to the beginning of the ceremony. I'll be there to meet with you, the wedding planner (if you have one), your photographer, and anyone else who may need to coordinate with me on the big day! During this time, we may run a rehearsal, I'll get familiar with PA equipment (I'm sorry, I don't provide my own) and the layout of the venue, I'll answer any last minute questions and we can discuss anything that needs to be changed or adjusted. Basically, I'll just be around to make sure you're not wondering if I'll make it on time and to go over everything one last time so there are no surprises! 5. Introductions and announcements. This one is completely optional, but for no additional fee, I will also provide em-cee services at the top of your reception. Often, couples have their DJ do this, but if you don't have one (and even if you do), I recommend having me do it, because I'll be more familiar with you and your entire wedding party. Generally, this is just the introduction of the wedding party as they enter the reception area--usually by twos, paired up as one bridesmaid and one groomsman, ending with the newly married couple. Usually, I might say something like "...and now ladies and gentlemen, for the first time ever as a married couple..." Whatever you like! 6. If you wish, I am happy to remain in attendance at the reception through dinner. Some couples really like this, others prefer that I go after the ceremony is done. I like to include this though, just in case it's something you'd like, so you know I'm willing to stay and celebrate with you! Similarly, I have been asked in the past if I'll join photographs. If you'd like, this is also something I'm happy to be a part of! 7. I will do all the necessary filing of paperwork with your local government and provide you with copies of that paperwork. You just need to be ready with your marriage licence and I'll do the rest! For additional fees, I offer these special services! +$50 - Rehearsal prior to wedding day (plus travel costs, if necessary) +$50 - Ceremonies planned to be over 30 minutes long. +$100 - I'll write an original ceremony, including vows. +$50 - Each additional 30-minute consultation in advance of the wedding (Again, two 30-minute consultations are included in my basic price). Finally, I also offer a recommendation for a wedding photographer I regularly work with. I recommend her because she's a good friend and an even better photographer. If you choose to go with her for your wedding photographer, not only can you be 100% certain I will be out of that all-important first-kiss shot, you also get my services as her assistant for no additional cost. Normally, a pro photographer such as her will charge extra when they bring a second person to assist, but as I'm already there and available, this is something I'm happy to offer for no additional fee when she and I work together. Let me know at any point if you'd like her information!
