Rev. Saundra was the perfect officiant for our wedding ceremony. When meeting with her in person she was very easy to talk to, open to hearing what our desires for the ceremony included, and also had suggestions for us about things we had not thought of before. She was very organized and professional throughout the entire process. We especially liked that she was always very quick to respond anytime we had questions. When we prefered different wording, for example, she was more than happy to accomodate our needs. We were very happy working with Saundra. It was very reassuring having a professional in charge of the ceremony rather than a family member which we were originally considering. We would highly suggest choosing Saundra as your officiant.

My Husband and I got engaged in September 2016 and Jeff officiated our wedding in December 2016. My Husband is Portuguese Catholic and I am Indian Hindu. As you might imagine, finding the right person to officiate our wedding, with only about 3 months to work with, while ensuring our and both our families wishes were considered, AND taking care of all the other wedding planning (catering, flowers, DJ, photographer, etc.) - COULD have been an extremely challenging task! Luckily, during one of my lunchbreaks from work, I googled "wedding officiants bay area". I clicked on Thumbtack, and the website asked me a few questions, such as wedding date and address. I submitted my answers and didn't think much of it, and went back into work. When I finished work, I checked my phone, and I had about 10 responses! Each officiant had a little blurb about themselves, but I was really drawn to what Jeff Finger had to say. I called him and he was friendly and kind. He asked to meet with my Fiancee and myself, and was very accommodating about where to meet and respectful of our time (and stress levels lol!). When we met, Jeff wanted to know about us as a couple, our path to marriage, and not only what we envisioned for our wedding, but also for our life together. We left the meeting feeling happy, hopeful, and excited! There was no doubt in our mind that Jeff was what he were looking for. ​Leading up to the wedding, Jeff sent us an outline of the ceremony. This was so helpful to us, because it added structure our entire wedding. He also checked in with us a couple of times to make sure everything was going well - again, this was super helpful! On the day of the wedding, things were chaotic. It rained and guests were late. Jeff was flexible, calming, and told us everything was going to be ok. And he was absolutely right. Our wedding day was beautiful and perfect, and a day I will remember all my life! Jeff officiated our wedding with emotion, confidence, and professionalism. Many of our guests commented on the beauty of the ceremony, and the way Jeff included everyone seated in the venue, and how they felt they were a special part of our wedding day. We were so fortunate to find Jeff, and highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding!

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.

Shyamala helped us create the most memorable and magical wedding day. She delivered a thoughtful and personalized ceremony that engaged everyone in attendance and kept it uplifting and fun. Shyamala did this by taking time to learn about us as a couple and wove what she learned into the ceremony. No cookie cutter ceremony here. Plus, there was not a dry eye in the house and everyone's hearts were bursting with joy. You know it's a good ceremony when guests are still talking about it weeks later - comments such as: "where did you find her?", "she has the most soothing voice", "she was so personable". On the day, she was prompt, professional, engaging, polite, endearing, kind - someone you would want to have stay and mingle with your family. Thank you Shyamala!

Sharon really made our ceremony a breeze!!!! With so much to plan she really helped us through our vows and the whole flow of the ceremony. We had a destination wedding and even though we could not be there often she really worked along with us via email and telephone. She also had everything set up for the rehearsal witch put me at great ease!!!!!! Her delivery during the ceremony was also so sweet and loving! She was early for the rehearsal and ceremony, and even though i was prettttttty late for the ceremony, she did not rush anything, she took her time and gave us a wedding we will remember for the rest of our lives!!! ~Krystle and Andre Vergara

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.

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.
