We hired Dr. jKonrad to be our minister on the beach under the Golden Gate bridge last minute because the court was full. He was able to meet us where we liked and he was very professional and made us laugh. It was a quick ceremony for just the two of us (we're having a wedding at another time) and it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you!!

I hired Pastor John to be the minister for a wedding I was coordinating. He did an excellent job! He was very easy to work with and had a heartwarming ceremony for the couple. He made the ceremony personalized which was more meaningful to the couple. Thank you Rev. John!!

We found Joe through the recommendation of our friend Emma who sent us a list of possible ministers who will officiate our ceremony. The moment we read his profile, we KNEW that he's the one. Who else can best exemplify the sanctity of marriage but a person who has been married for 35 years (and counting)? We also admire the fact that Joe is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights in the country and as a same-sex couple, it is very important for us to have an officiant who understands and empathize with our desire to seal this commitment and celebrate our love in front of our family and friends. Thank you JOE for being such a great part of our wedding. You're like our huggable Santa Claus---so endearing, sincere. Your charm made for such a special wedding ceremony. I recommend him to everyone, same-sex or heterosexual couples as you wedding officiant. It makes such a big difference when your minister genuinely cares.

My husband and I just celebrated our 25th Anniversary and renewed our wedding vowels. Minister Barnard provided beautiful ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted and received so many complements from our guest. He met with us prior to occasion and made it very personal. He is also clearly experienced and led us all the way. We wish him all the best and might he continue to make other couples as happy.

Kelley is amazing lady. My husband and i wanted someone that was able to except our untraditional wedding ceremony. We talked to her for a few months and all the ideas we had came together beautifully. Kelley was also able to help my daughter (from my previous marriage) surprise my new husband in helping her write personal vows to say to her papa. The ceremony was above and beyond what we expected. All the personal touches she added made it our wedding. Nothing like you would normally see or hear. Adzactly what we wanted. She listened to all our requests and followed through. All of our friends and family were so excited about the ceremony they talked about it for weeks. I still have people talking about it and we got married aug. 27 2011.

Hayne was great to work with from the start. She helped create a layout for the ceremony, and wrote us a beautiful poem. She even decorated the backdrop for our ceremony-at the last minute too. Hayne is a loving person who is easy going. We are really happy with the way our ceremony turned out! Forever thankful to you The Martins

You married Meg and I on April 2, 2011. We are happily married and living in Rancho Cordova near Sacramento. I am now an ordained minister myself and have been officiating ceremonies. I use you as a model. You are the best. Should the request for a minister in the Bay Area ever come up, I will surely recommend you! Thank you and know you are in our hearts forever.

The wedding was great. The ceremony conducted by Rev. Robert Mize went well, It was short but sweet and nice. And i will never forget my wedding because our officiating minister is from the united states of america so my wedding is literally a English wedding. hehe All in all it was a great wedding conducted by Pastor Robert Mize. the food is great by the way.

We highly recommend Mike Garner for pre-marital counseling and officiating weddings. In our pre-marital counseling his goal was to not only guide us through the necessary conversations every couple should have before marrying, but to gently challenge us with life skills of what a marriage should look like. This was the key to our marriage success. We will celebrated 20 years this July. We are so thankful for the extra care and support he gave with us. I am positive with out the love and commitment he dedicated to us during the counseling sessions and ultimately 20 years of friendship we wouldn't be together this long. If you are looking for someone who is devoted 100 percent and is not afraid to be honest with you, Pastor Mike it the ONE!

Coming up on our one year anniversary I am reflecting back on what an amazing day our wedding was and all of the reasons everything was as perfect as could be. The love of course, the family and friends, the beauty of the surroundings. But perhaps most importantly, the way each and every person there came together both to share and celebrate the joy and to contribute in whatever way they could to making the day fun, easy, and relaxed for my husband and I. David was absolutely integral to making that happen. First off, let me tell you a little bit about David. David is one of the most wonderful human beings I have ever known. His kindness simply radiates from him. This is a good man. He is also a man that believes in love. In addition to that, he is creative, funny, wise, and passionate. Being around David feels good. And I knew that we could trust him completely to help guide and support us through and on our special day. How incredible, to be able to relax knowing that we were in such good hands. Our day went as smoothly as could be. David did a remarkable job with the ceremony, the perfect combination of personal, thoughtful, sweet, funny, meaningful, and with a great flow. Many people asked about him afterwards and he received the highest praise. David checked in with us the perfect amount throughout the event, just enough to know things were going as hoped. He was attentive but respectful and totally on top of our needs as well as the energy of the day and the people around us. I feel tremendous gratitude for David for the time he spent and work he did for us on our day and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Illana was wonderful! She listened to our requests, and wrote a ceremony that fits us perfectly! Our wedding was romantic, spiritual, and incorporated our beliefs and showcased our love for each other. Illana included our friends and family in the ceremony -- everyone played a part. It was wonderful to work with Illana! We highly recommend her as an officiant and counselor!

An out of body experience is an understatement. Trent Thornley was incredible. A week before our wedding the officiant who was scheduled to marry us had a family emergence, so we were in a pretty stressful bind. Trent was referred to us from a dear friend who works with Trent. Within 30 minutes Trent had agreed to skype with us and we connected with him as a person instantly. He was so accommodating and luckily he was available for the very next weekend. Not only did he agree to be our officiant, so last minute, but he was able to travel to our wedding in Oregon from San Francisco (of course we bought his flight and hotel!). We sent him our ideas for the ceremony i.e. vows, readings, prayer, etc. and before the wedding he sat with each of us separately and then together to make sure we were all on the same page - he was our spiritual guide and professional facilitator. He had this wonderful ability to connect with us, make us feel supported and also ease our nervous and stressful energy. And I even asked him, "am I missing anything in my vows that might get me into trouble" and to that he assured me I covered all my bases and helped me laugh that off. :) Once we walked down the aisle and joined hands at the alter, the energy was electric and Trent went to work. He opened with a wonderful ice breaker and got the attendees, engaged, present and participating. He lead our ceremony like a magician. I mean, he may as well have had on a wizard hat (which would have totally worked because we are a geeky fantasy and sci-fi couple - and even played the Star Wars theme song during our procession)!! Which Trent totally supported. We also asked Trent to follow our general guidelines but to bring in his own knowledge, passion and spiritual experiences in Catholicism and Buddhism, which he did beautifully. After the ceremony, we insisted Trent stay and join the party because he was an instant friend and we couldn't bare to let his beautiful energy leave the party - and he did! If you are looking for a compassionate, open-minded, uplifting, intelligent, commanding, respectful, loving minister/reverend/officiant/wizard person to marry you, then I highly recommend Trent Thornley!

Neil didn't give what he promised, Neil Whitelaw gave double what he said to our Marriage. He certainly gave us a spiritual boost to our Wedding without getting holier-than-thou and a bunch of Bible quotes read without feeling like so many ceremonies we've seen the last number of years. We feel that we we truly linked in spirit by Neil without getting immersed in dogmatic Religion. We know, as he said during the service, that he pointed us in the right direction but it is up to us how we fly! It feels like we really are flying in the right way. He felt like an old family friend and not a stranger. Neil was sure to include the elements that the two of us wanted but we felt so at ease with him and respected his obvious wisdom that it was pretty easy to let him run the show. He did everything we wanted to have done and them some. He was on time , we liked him very much, and we will want Neil to bless our children when they come along, too. We are surprised that some woman hasn't snagged him by ow.

Ryan did an amazing job as our officiant. He met with us and we gave him an idea of what we envisioned, and he filled in all the details and came up with a perfect ceremony for us. We knew we didn't want a traditional boilerplate ceremony, we wanted something that was "us" and would be special and memorable, and Ryan got this perfectly. He did a lot of research to find the right readings/poems/etc and really worked with us to find exactly the right things to say. He didn't just pick some sayings from a book of common ceremonies, it was truly a custom, personal ceremony, and we couldn't have dreamt of anything better. His style is very Santa Cruz, laid back and comfortable, but still very respectful and special. He's also not an internet certified "minister" and is the real deal with the backing of a real church (but is absolutely not preachy, judgemental, or a traditional church figure either.) We can't thank Ryan enough for giving us the ceremony of our dreams!
