Loretta was the perfect officiant for our recent wedding. From the initial phone call to get to know each other to the rehearsal to the wedding ceremony itself. She is very personable, funny and kind and it made the overall stress of the wedding much easier to deal with. The unique ceremony she drafted for us was wonderful and flowed really nicely. I would highly recommend her services to anyone getting married in the Santa Barbara area. 10/10!!!Sep 14, 2018Verified

Dr. Redd is a wonderful officiant and a fabulous person. We spoke with her and she wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us. Everything she wrote was based on our glorious relationship. She understood us and contributed to our ceremony with a stunning representation of our love, friendship and shared understanding of life. Thank you, Dr. Redd for conveying our emotions and love for each other and our families.Oct 19, 2016Verified
We were so happy with how professional Loretta was for my daughters beach wedding in Santa Barbara! She came the night before and helped guide us through the rehearsal inside. There was a 70% chance of rain on Saturday and we did not think my daughter would have her beach wedding. But, in the morning the sky's broke open and the rain held off and we moved the ceremony outside. Loretta helped us transition outside and get everybody organized. She gave the most beautiful ceremony for Ashley and Bradley. It was almost like she knew them personally. And after the ceremony everybody commented how much they loved her message. And this was the icing on the cake for me. Ashley and Bradley forgot there marriage liscence. Loretta waited patiently for somebody to bring it back so they could make it official! Thank you! Thank you! for making my daughters day truly remarkable! Sincerely, The Mother of the Bride Shari PetersonJan 11, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing depends on distance for travel, the two dates for both rehearsal and wedding, and some personal factors, such as my service to fellow veterans or to those in need of an officiant on a very short time line.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I want my couples to participate in creating their ceremony. I will send the Order of Ceremony outline by email, then schedule a meeting or call to discuss the components and to learn more about their journey. If hired, I write and send a draft of the ceremony until the couple feels it is a perfect reflection of their connection.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Although I have a PhD in psychology, and a certificate in executive coaching, I do not see being a wedding Officiant as a 'counseling' position, although I have always eager to support the couple through any moments of trepidation.
