Ben did an excellent job and very responsive through out the whole process. He shared a lot of helpful tips and advices on writing vows and getting our marriage license and certificate. We have a few phone calls and a face to face meeting before our wedding day. Ben was very engaging and patient everytime we spoke. We are happy to have Ben as our officiant!Sep 17, 2019Verified
Ben was beyond amazing as our officiant on our wedding day. We got married at Preservation Park in Oakland and had to make last minute changes due to unexpected rain. Ben was flexible, professional and personable. He prepared a wedding binder with our vows handy and had a calming presence. I can’t recommend Ben enough!! Thanks again Ben! -Chris and Diana Chang-FunkMay 23, 2019Verified
Ben was so great to work with! Wedding planning is stressful, especially finding all your vendors, but Ben took away my officiant stress the day I booked him. He was easy to work with, has a great personality, inexpensive and prompt on my big day! I would use Ben again without hesitation. Can't wait to check out the binder he prepared for my husband and I :)May 16, 2019Verified
Ben did an excellent job as our wedding officiant. We couldn't be more pleased. He was very on the ball with everything, he always emailed back right away with any questions or concerns we had. He did everything as we asked and he dressed very nice also! Thank you Ben, if we could get married again, we would use you!Sep 12, 2018Verified

Ben was a wonderful officiant that exceeded our expectations. We live in Wisconsin but are from the Bay Area and booked him about a year in advance of our wedding date. He was extremely courteous, professional, and provided answers to our questions immediately. We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding! He gave us a personal binder with our vows and other details and promptly submitted our marriage license. Trust that Ben will be there for all your needs and his services are top notch!Jul 3, 2018Verified
- 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.
