This review is super overdue. Logistically, very professional, very responsive, super knowledgeable and up-to-date with the logistics of getting married (licensing, which counties were open / closed, who was taking appointments, etc). We had a "elopement" micro-wedding (10 people for us) because of COVID-19 safety reasons, but Ben helped us navigate the unconventional logistics of that so well. Qualitatively speaking, Ben was amazing, and we loved how he really met us where we were at. His suggestions for writing our vows made it easy to customize it uniquely for us. He's spectacular. It was apparent that even though he has done this many times, every single ceremony he officiates -- including ours -- bring him an infectious joy. Maybe we were biased because it was our wedding day (ha!), but Ben was easily the best choice because he made our ceremony feel very much like it was about us... The officiation really reminded my spouse and I why we love each other dearly, and why it was so worth it to commit to each other for the long haul -- crazy that Ben can really make that moment feel like it's something new, even though my spouse and I wrote the content. :) Working with Ben was great. Given that we were also an inter-faith couple, he did such a great job to help unite us and ground us as one, despite this. Can't imagine our special day being officiated by anyone else. We are super happy we got to work with him. THANK YOU BEN!!!

Details: Wedding • Interfaith • 51 - 100 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

I own a wedding planning and photography company. I hired Ben to officiant a wedding for one of my couples and he did an excellent job. I would definitely hire him again, and I plan to. He arrived early, nicely dressed, and had a pleasant demeanor. He has many years of experience, and most importantly, he really enjoys being an officiant. He was great with the couple, and I personally enjoyed the ceremony.

Details: Elopement • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal

Ben was very professional and detailed throughout our first contact and during the ceremony. He was even caring enough to ask what color suit I’d prefer him to wear and I thought that was a real nice touch to his work. He also made us laugh and that was awesome!Great wedding officiant! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to meet face to face with the couple to discuss the details of their ceremony. To find out if there are special needs and/or ceremonies that couple want in their ceremony. This is your special day - I will work with you to create the ceremony and vision of how you want your day to go. I am always willing to personalize ceremonies.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    I've done weddings of all religions and cultures, as well as a variety of themed weddings. I am always willing to help you realize your vision for your wedding. Some of my favorite weddings to officiate have been Iron Man or Princess Bride-themed weddings.
