We hired Dr. Hole' to be our wedding officiant and we could not have picked a better person. Dr. Hole' was absolutely awesome. He was more than willing to be there for our 9pm Friday night wedding, and he was on time despite being from a city over 60 miles away. All in all, he helped everything come together and be the magical night that it was. Had we chosen anyone else to marry us and I'm confident that the night would not have been quite as perfect as it was. On behalf of my wife and I, Dr. Hole', we just want to say thank you. We were honored to have you be a part of the start of the rest of our lives.

In a clutch for an officiant and Dr. Hole was exactly what we needed. He was easy to work with, arrived on time, waited VERY patiently (while the Bride took way longer than she should have to present herself), conducted himself with the utmost of professionalism and produced a genuine ceremony having not meet the couple till the day of the wedding. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing a wedding officiant. (This review was written by the wedding coordinator and Bride's friend)

Dr Konrad Hole was an amazing officiant! His price was fair, and his flexibility and laid back nature made him easy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking to marry in San Fransisco. My wedding on ocean beach was perfect. Thank you! C and J

Warm, sincere, and memorable. These are three positive words amongst many that can be used to describe Joe's services as wedding officiant. From the starting point, he had been highly responsive to our inquiries as we were organising our wedding from overseas. Joe took the time to get to know us via video conference, and applied what he learned about us beautifully during the ceremony. Easily likeable, gentle, prompt, and personable, that's what we got from him the day we met him in person. He made everyone feel at ease on our wedding day. And the ceremony, needless to say, was just beautiful. Definitely not a cookie cutter ceremony. Even after the wedding, he made it a point to keep in touch with us. More than an officiant, we have gained a friend. We highly recommend Joe Stasi to officiate your wedding.

If there was a ten star rating, I would give it to Mr Ben Miyaji a very Profesional wedding officiant. He was very attentive during my wedding planning. He kept in touch till my wedding date. He arrived before the time set, and he performed a simple brief ceremony as we asked. Thank you so very much Mr Miyaji. Toni and Ron.

We had Kimberly Cope preform our 25th wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony in January of 2016. Words cannot express what a wonderful job she did for us. Kim displays such peace, joy, and happiness which bring a sense of calmness to the situation. Kim worked with us well ahead of the ceremony and tailored her ceremony to fit our needed, staying in contact the whole way through the revisions. She performed the ceremony in a very caring and professional manner. We are grateful she performed this service for us. We will always remember it with fondness.

We are so glad that we chose Kim as our wedding officiant. She did a wonderful job with her lovely personality! She is professional and easy to work with. Before the ceremony, she went through the whole flow and helped us get organized. At the end, the ceremony was beautifully delivered. We thank Kim for her great service.

I needed an officiant pretty much lady minute who could do a quick small civil ceremony in Santa Cruz. Minister Hayne Bendick answered very quickly and provided a great quote. Since I don't live in Santa Cruz and I couldn't take time off work communication was done via messaging on Thumbtack and then by texting/calling. Everything went smooth, she helped pick a free, beautifully scenic spot in Santa Cruz to hold the ceremony, had vows for us to say, and had a great energy that comforted me when we met face to face on the wedding day. She also took tons of lovely pictures, which was also nice because we didn't hire a photography. Thanks again Minster Bendick for all your help and for marrying us in such a beautiful place!

Minister Hayne was great! She was very flexible with our schedules, and she was always willing to meet and discuss the wedding in person. Since my wife and I live in SoCal, we mainly communicated via email or over phone, and that worked out really well! During the ceremony, she was extremely helpful, patient, and funny! She even brought cute props for our wedding! Thank you Minister Hayne for being our officiant in our wedding, we truly appreciate it!

We loved Minister Hayne! Our private wedding ceremony overlooking the ocean was perfect in every way. She was very thoughtful about every detail and made us feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

Robert Mize was our wedding officiant, and we couldn't have been happier with how the ceremony turned out. He was highly organized and took time to plan the flow and order well in advance with us. We appreciated how he took our thoughts and opinions and incorporated them in the service, which made for a personalized ceremony that reflected us as a couple. It was a seamless experience from beginning to end. Robert's good natured personality was also calming throughout the wedding process, and we received many compliments on the ceremony afterwards (not something you often hear)!

Chris officiated our wedding in August 2014, at the Seymour Marine Center in Santa Cruz, CA. Leading up to the wedding, he walked us through the process, what to consider, and provided us with samples of ceremonies. His guidance and good humor ensured that we were relaxed the day of, and his ceremony was beautiful - balancing formality and humor, poetry and prose. It was exactly what we wanted: classic but still personal to us. His calm and relaxed presence was reassuring when we were overtaken by the emotion of the moment, and he took care of all the paperwork from beginning to end. We were lucky to be married by Chris!

July 1979 - Chris Johnson married my wife and I on the beach in the Santa Cruz/ Soquel area. As with all marriages things were hectic from the bride and groom point of view. Mr. Johnson took care of all the details that we never even thought about. Not only the license and recording, but making sure everyone was in their proper space. All went smooth. Considering this all took place on a public beach is a testament to his organizational skills as well as his ability to handle the ceremony in a dignified and orderly manner. We have been happily married for 35 years.

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!

My Husband and I got married by Reverend Duda at Monastery Beach on 10/10/15. He is absolutely amazing! He was recommended to us by our venue (Wedgewood Carmel) and I am so happy we choose him to marry us! Our ceremony was perfect, and the things he said were so nice and genuine! We felt like he was part of the family by the end of it, our family and friends had nothing but magnificent things to say about him! If your looking for an officiant for your wedding he is definitely someone to consider who genuinely cares about the couples. Thanks again Rev Duda for making our wedding day so special!

About

Honey In The Heart Ceremonies comes from the joy that I share with couples who are stepping over the threshold into deeper commitment with one another. All of life's experience has instilled within me the gift of listening to the heart's wisdom, the ability to emit the presence of calm, and to share respect for everyone that I serve. Love flows naturally when I'm in service to others. I was ordained as a non-denominational minister in 2008 through the Center for Sacred Studies. I've loved being a wedding officiant since then. My husband and I have been together for over 25 years, and we're bee keepers! You can rest assure that your ceremony will reflect the love that each of you has for one another. I embrace all beliefs and honor each person's vision. Together, we bring your inspiration with a sprinkling of humor and mix them together to create an honoring of your commitment in a wedding ceremony that is special. Please contact me so that we can talk about your ceremony that comes from the heart and is meant to "bee".
