I am so glad I found Phil to be the officiant at my wedding. He did an excellent job! My groom requested a non religious wedding and Phil was very cooperative with the request and the ceremony was heartfelt, emotional, and beatiful. He played us a song on his guitar, even taking a request of an guitar version of an Elton John song. He even said a prayer with me privately before we parted ways, as per my request. My wedding was amazing and Phil Rountree is highly recommended.May 22, 2018Verified
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.Aug 9, 2017Verified
Phil was amazing. He was professional, very polite, had a good sense of humor. He did a fantastic job at officiating our wedding ceremony. He helped us recite our vows, despite my wife and I being very nervous during the ceremony. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for an officiant! Thank you so much, Phil! You made our ceremony such a memorable experience for everyone who attended!Sep 21, 2017VerifiedFun Weddings's reply
Thank you Hassan! It was a beautiful day all around!
I was putting together my wedding from out of town so you can imagine how much confidence I had to have in my choice for an officiant. I can honestly tell you my husband and I couldn't have been more happy with choosing Phil. Phil was extremely responsive to my email correspondence, worked with us on the type of ceremony we wanted to have and even gave us a choice on what he should wear. We were able to meet with him the day before the ceremony to discuss the ceremony more in-depth and even talked about music -- which he played guitar and sang at our ceremony. I can assure you if you choose Phil to be your officiant, you will not be disappointed. He is awesome!Oct 29, 2017Verified
Phil was amazing. We had a last minute change of officiant. Found Phil the same week as the wedding. He owned the job, took control and helped us every step of the way. He was very helpful and selecting the vows and ceremony goodness. And he executed flawlessly. We thank him so much for his quick availability and being there for us.Oct 20, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Large wedding: $400 (includes preparation, travel, and ceremony, and music) Small wedding: $250 (under 20 people) Rehearsal: add $150 Travel: $50 (if over 50 miles away) No discounts or package deals. I'm really good at what I do and I'm worth it.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I encourage phone contact to exchange wedding information. Then, I email a variety of service options to the couple for review. If the couple lives in the SF bay area, we can get together for a face-to-face meeting
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Degree in Religious Studies from Yale University, and a Masters in Divinity from Episcopal Divinity School. I have been a full-time pastor for 32 years. I also have a lot of experience in theater, and have been a professional musician my entire adult life.
