Bob was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. With just the right amount of humor and connection to God, Bob made a fun atmosphere while maintaining the sanctity and dignity of our ceremony. Whenever we had a question or needed to discuss an aspect of the ceremony, Bob was available to us. Many of our guests have commented to us on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We highly recommend Bob and thank him for helping us have the perfect ceremony!

Definitley the best wedding officiant ever! He was able to get back to us right away, worked on our schedule on a late notice, and was very punctual. Very professional, responsive, and humorous. We were honored to have him as our wedding officiant and would highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed!

I first started emailing with Ed after finding his website in early 2012. I love the fact that he has all the information a bride and groom could need on this website. He has his personal history, pricing, and all the things he offers. It is very user friendly. I really felt you get to know him through his site. We met with Ed in the fall of 2012 for our official meet and greet and during the meeting I just kept hoping my groom liked him as much as I did. Right after the meeting my groom gushed about Ed, this is not something he usually does. He loved that Ed was so personable, warm, and full of great ideas for our wedding. He felt he would do a wonderful job officiating for us, I was thrilled. Before the wedding Ed was always there for us, answering questions, discussing options an always being helpful. He even came to the venue for a vendor meeting to walk us through the motions to put us at ease. It was great to see him again and confirmed in our minds we picked the right man for the job. We finally decided on our vows and with only a bit of time before our May 18, 2013 wedding Ed confirmed he received them and was good to go. On the day of our wedding Ed arrived early and set up his video equipment to record our ceremony. He walked me through where he was setting them up and verified I was good with the angles, so very cool. During our ceremony he was amazing. He made sure he waited for us to be emotionally ready, read the words we were to repeat with just enough spacing we wouldn't miss to say something in repeating it back and was just so darn great. Didn't miss a beat in reading and preformed the ceremony wonderfully. Ed stayed for our reception to record on camera and be our guest. Our other guests loved him. They went on and on how it was great to talk with him and he did such a remarkable job during our ceremony, that he felt like family. I can't say enough about Ed. He is a tremendously great man. I am truly happy we had him officiate our wedding. There were no glitches or moments of unease and we owe that to Ed.

Ed officiated our April 2014 wedding in Sacramento, California. He was perfect! We had a very DIY wedding and he helped make sure that even the vows were personalized and reflective of us as a couple something we definitely wanted. Ed is extremely flexible. Due to weather and the inability to get the entire bridal party together for an official rehearsal, we definitely winged the procession to say the least. Thanks to Ed's experience and our groups ability catch on quick, none of the guests were the wiser. Ed showed up early the day up to help our group go over the key points and stayed to capture some of the post ceremony photo session on film for us. Thank you Ed. It definitely wouldn't have been the same without you!

What can we say? A lot!! Ed is such an incredible human being and we feel so honored to have found him in Gold Country! My husband & I chose Ed on Thumbtack and we are very glad we did! We chose a setting to be married by the Mokelumne River and it couldn't have turned out more beautiful! Ed was quick to respond to emails and he even had dinner with us a month ahead of time to get to know each other a bit, we even share a love for Sammy Hagar music lol...thank you Ed for making mine & Jarod's wedding on the River a special one! The DVD is a great bonus too and I can't quit watching it!!!

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!

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!!
