Rev Saundra was excellent! She was patient, kind, thoughtful, understanding, and flexible. She completely embraced and accommodated the unique nuances of our multi-cultural ceremony. She took time to study and learn ancient san-san-kudo rituals without being prompted. She also reminded us of everything that needed to be done-- from our marriage license and vows, to hugging and kissing our parents at the alter when we were too busy or preoccupied to think about such details. We highly recommend Rev. Saundra for your wedding! You won't be disappointed!

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!

The process of securing a wedding officiant was very easy and professional. The wedding is still upcoming so I'll have to reserve additional comments until after the ceremony.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Pastor Ama Zenya is a true blessing. She brought joy, warmth, love, happiness, and beautiful light to our wedding. We felt so secure with her as our officiant. She provided us with the comfort to be present in every moment of our ceremony and feel all the love and support that was with us to celebrate our union. She met with us several months before our wedding to get to know us, both our individual personalities and our personality as a couple. She understood well what our wishes were and tailored the ceremony perfectly to meet our needs and include family traditions. She was very responsive, patient, gentle and kind with any questions we had. She was also very active in helping with details regarding the ceremony, and was very prompt with the official paperwork, as well as helping us rehearse our vows. There aren't enough words to describe how grateful we are to have had her as our officiant. We would highly recommend Pastor Ama Zenya to other couples looking for an officiant who will work with you to create a beautiful ceremony filled with love and tailored to your relationship.

I used Hamei for my wedding last year after I witnessed him marry friends of my husband and I. I was so impressed with his professionalism and ability to create such a meaningful ceremony. We needed help deciding on our vows and he helped us decide on how to format it. We already had met him once but he insisted we stop by his restaurant to go over what we wanted from him. I'm glad we did. I highly recommend meeting with him in person. (He bought me and my husband 2 glasses of wine while we chatted with him . ) ;)

Christopher deLellis, Guidance and Grace, performed the wedding ceremony for my son and my now daughter in law about a year ago. I am not simply posting this "view" of praise because the wedding was for my son, but it was the BEST wedding I have ever witnessed. Yes, the emotional love was bursting as my son married his best friend. But, the ceremony performed by Christopher was as personal as it was professional. He spent time with my son and his now wife to prepare incredibly personal and pertinent vows and also developed a handfasting segment during the wedding that was of particular importance to my son and his wife. Christopher was amazing, charming, and most of all, incredibly present while performing the service with the two of them AND the group of gathered loved ones who were the wedding guests. Actually, one of the couples attending the wedding hired Christopher for their wedding after experiencing first hand how incredible he is. If you are looking for someone to perform a service for you who is a dedicated and highly gifted celebrant, hire Christopher deLellis. A wedding between two people is a once in a lifetime event that you want to cherish forever. Christopher gives you this experience! BTW, we later hired Christopher to do our home blessing when we sold our house of over 30 years of ownership. We invited friends, family and neighbors to this special event, and Christopher performed a splendid and moving ceremony to give us all a special closure to our home and all of the memories we made under the roof. We were so impressed, we had him also bless our new home. The wedding and our home blessings were not religious, but very spiritual, deeply moving, and gave us new memories that we have forever in our hearts. Talk to him about his ability to personalize and type your wedding or other special event. He can do it all with Guidance and Grace.

Robyn and Gil were so easy to work with. They were able to guide us into a form to follow when we felt lost but were totally able to incorporate our individual ideas when we asked. What I loved most about them, however, is that they provided such a warm spiritual tone that felt all-inclusive and welcoming. I highly recommend Robyn and Gil for your celebration.
