  1. #1 Dani Antman

    (22 reviews)

    Briana M.

    My husband and I were married two weeks ago in Santa Barbara by Dani, and we couldn't be happier with the ceremony and the work she put into it. Dani sent each of us a series of questions about our relationship and feelings about marriage. She then took our answers and blended them to create a beautiful ceremony! Before receiving the text, we had thought about writing our own vows, but she was able to capture our hearts so completely, we felt it wasn't necessary. My husband and I come from different cultural and religious backgrounds (Jewish and Buddhist), and Dani infused aspects from both in the ceremony. I felt that each of our families and our traditions were honored, and that our unique qualities were able to shine. Best day of my life, and I'm so happy Dani was a part of it!!

    Krystyna B.

    Loretta is a truly wonderful human being. She captured my husband and I beautifully in her unique ceremony and we were emotional the entire time. She was very receptive to tweaks and changes and her voice is a truly beautiful beacon on such a special day. Our wedding would not have been the same without her and we would choose her 1000x over! Thank you Loretta for our beautiful ceremony.

  4. #4 At Your Service Weddings - Award Winning Officiant Plus DJ/MC

    (6 reviews)

    Ana T.

    Michael Taylor was selected as our Officiant for our wedding in San Luis Obispo County June of 2015.. From the initial contact until the conclusion of our Service we couldn't have made a better selection. He was not only professional, detail oriented, creative and caring, but went beyond what we could have imagined .. Michael was not only respectful but made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. He provided us with varied selections and choices for our custom ceremony. He calmed my nerves and made us feel like we were with a dear friend from the very beginning all the way through to the conclusion of the ceremony. Simply put, everything was picture perfect and don't believe anyone could have done better. I would proudly recommend Michael Taylor to be the Officiant at your wedding.

  7. #7 Santa Barbara Minister

    (9 reviews)

    Jennifer M.

    Anita is amazing. When you are looking for someone to officiate the most important day of your life, you always want to find the best fit. Anita was that person. She is full of life and so helpful in deciding which location (out of many!) in Santa Barbara that we could get married-- without having to pay a big fee or get a permit. Anita is also very fair and reasonable with her cost of services, and she also made sure that we had good pictures to remember our big day! If you are looking for a minister that can be your one-stop shop-- and guide you through the process of getting married, where to go for a license, the entire process of getting hitched without any hiccups, definitely book Anita as your officiant. She is the best!

    So very happy with our choice! Jono is a really great guy & really made us feel comfortable & special on our big day! He even met with us twice before the wedding. He was very easy to talk to & really did a great job! You will not regret going with Jono! Everything was flawless! He showed up early, spoke perfectly, & really helped my husband to feel more comfortable standing in front of everybody. Picking someone to do the ceremony is one of the most important parts of the wedding & we couldn't have made a better choice!

    Kristi A.

    What can we say? He is delightful, insightful, thoughtful, perceptive and intuitive - not overpowering - will figure you out and be inspired to do what moves you! It was apparent that Reverend James goes above and beyond his "pay scale" as he truly loves what he does! He is also a very nice & fun party guest! He sat at the table with family and friends and everyone just adored him! Don't hesitate, give him a call for your ceremony - also en espanol! Thanks so much Reverend! XO

Thumbtack Spotlight

Dr. Loretta Redd, Wedding Officiant

(10 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Being a wedding officiant allows me to use a lifelong collection of skills as a professional writer, speaker, psychologist and occasional crisis manager! It is the happiest occupation imaginable and is a great privilege to literally change people's lives. Every ceremony must reflect the individuality of the people before me and the story of their love, so I never repeat the same ceremony twice. Some couples may not put as much time into their ceremony as the flowers at the wedding, but it is the words of the officiant that make the marriage legal. Why not also make it memorable?!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Most of my prior careers have been crisis-oriented; this puts me in the occupation of celebration and happiness .

    Rodney S.

    Dani was a complete comfort for us. We planned a last minute wedding and she was very reassuring. Couldn't have ask for more. She emailed us what she had planned to say prior to the ceremony to ensure all was well. She asked questions to give us that personal touch and she provided a beautiful poem for our daughter to read. Dani's smile was an instant calmness for us both. She showed up early and even stayed for pictures. Thank you so much for everything you made our day even more perfect for us.

    Brittney B.

    There are no words to describe how happy we were with Loretta Redd! From the very beginning she was so on top of everything and checked in with us about every detail for the ceremony outline. The moment we met her I had an instant feeling of comfort and relaxation. Not only did we love her but our entire wedding party felt refreshed by her presence as well! Loretta was poise and elegant and had such an amazing demeanor! Every single one of our guests that night had told us that our ceremony was by far the best they have ever attended. The most important thing for couples to remember is that the day of you wedding you don't want to worry or stress about a thing. Loretta Redd was a very large part in allowing us to feel that way on our day! We would recommend her to everyone and I truly feel so lucky that we found her! Thank you Loretta!!!
