Christopher was a wonderful officiant for our wedding ceremony yesterday. He was communicative and responsive to texts, emails, and calls. Christopher also helped us a lot when preparing our script and vows for our ceremony. He had some great examples to share with us. He was right on time on our wedding day, and we found Christopher to be a charismatic, compassionate speaker. He also took the time to help us understand what needed to be done with our marriage paperwork. I highly recommend Christopher to anyone looking for a qualified, professional, and friendly officiant for their wedding. Thanks again, Christopher!

Christopher was everything I didn't know I needed in a wedding officiant. I've only been to a couple weddings and had no idea what I was doing. With 2 weeks notice he helped me design a perfect, simple, and touching ceremony that my family loved. I'm Catholic but couldn't marry in a church, so he helped us include God in our ceremony and it felt just right for our blended family. He was friendly, professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Christopher!

Details: Wedding • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 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

Me and my partner Aditi were looking for an officiant in a time crunch situation for our wedding in SF city hall. Aditi was very particular in the type of officiant she wanted as we wanted to make our ceremony a memorable and fun affair for everyone. We can’t thank enough to thumbtack and our fortunes to have met Chris and have him officiate in our wedding. Chris was very supportive from the start and guided us through and through until the last step. He provided many samples and ideas which helped us navigate the vows and ceremony smoothly. He also printed our vows on a card-stock paper and got it for us, which was very sweet. Everyone in our wedding loved him. We are glad to have found Chris and to have got a chance to work with him. Totally recommend this gem of a person for wedding ceremony.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 21 - 50 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We are so happy that Christopher officiated our wedding. He was absolutely amazing! Lots of people came up to us and asked, “where did you find this guy?”, since he did such a good job. He really put us at ease at the altar. He took his job very seriously but kept the ceremony light and fun. We were running behind schedule but he hung in there with us. Thank you so much Christopher for making our day so special! -Corey and Tiffany Rankin

    I have been blessed to work with couples from all walks of life, and to perform many different types of ceremonies.
