Sonia was absolutely wonderful as our wedding officiant! On December 15, we decided to get married on Christmas Day. We found Sonia on Thumbtack and she made everything happen with only a 10 day notice! She arrived early so we could make our early dinner reservations. Everything went smoothly without a rehearsal. Sonia played Ave Maria as I walked into the room. She included our deceased parents names in the ceremony as well as a unity candle. Sonia is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Sonia as your wedding officiant.

Details: Wedding • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We had a great experience with Sonia. To be honest, we weren't sure exactly what we wanted. Sonia asked the right questions to learn the things that were important to us, and suggested elements to the ceremony that we would have never come up with on our own, for example the sand ceremony. She met with us twice via video call before the wedding and worked with us over email to get the content of the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted! She was always punctual, dressed very professionally, and officiated in Spanish, as requested. Her Spanish is indeed fluent; she is fully bilingual, native proficiency in both English and Spanish. I thought her prices were very reasonable -- especially considering that she came to us in Redwood City from Manteca! She also helped us by advising us regarding logistics of the marriage license and certificate. She helped us create the perfect wedding ceremony -- the wedding of our dreams! We highly recommend her!

Details: Wedding • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • Spanish • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

It was the best decision we made when we hired Sonia as our officiant. She was so helpful and gave us an outline of our how the ceremony should be. We can't be more grateful for her help to make our wedding run so smooth. Sonia was very responsive to our questions and very reliable. She was very professional and she was on time to our wedding. We had a little delay and Sonia did not mind at all. Sonia also helped us mail our marriage license. So everything was taken care of. It was also nice that she disclosed that she had a back up officiant just in case she can't make it due to any unforeseen circumstance like COVID. This puts my mind at ease because the last thing you will want is to find a last minute officiant. If you're looking for an officiant, I would highly recommend Sonia. She is reliable, professional and detail - oriented.
