Diego did a great job in our wedding. He put so much detail to everything he said. My wife and I couldn't pick a better wedding officiant. He really put his heart into our ceremony! And translating everything for part of out family was a big plus!! Thank you so much Diego! :)
We had a small wedding in Sonoma county and Phil was great, he was available on short notice. we also decided to have him sing a song for us. We chose on that was not on his list and he was able to learn it in about a few days before the wedding. All the wedding guest were surprised and loved it. Thanks Phil for being our officiant for our special day.
Choosing an officiant was not simple for us because we aren't affiliated with a particular faith. My husband's parents are, but did not feel it was important for someone from their faith to officiate for us. So I scoured the internet for local officiants with great reviews and moderate fees. This was how I came upon the delightful Shyamala. Shyamala helped us SO much in preparation for our ceremony. First, she invited us to her home and was such a loving and open presence, which was a great help to a couple like us who really had few ideas about what we wanted to say in our ceremony. After our first meeting we met a second time so that she could get to know us more personally to gather material for what she would write. After that we corresponded via email. Over the course of about 6 months leading up to the wedding, Shyamala was a wise and comforting support for us! Using her tools and suggestions, my husband and I were able to collaborate and customize the ceremony in a way that felt magical. Shyamala led us through the actual ritual with total grace and flexibility. I recommend her service wholeheartedly and if we were to do it all over again, we would not change a thing about our experience with her.
Sheryl is really amazing,are wedding ceremony was more than a job to her. She made sure that everything was better than planned she goes over every detail with you like a friend. I would recommend her to everyone..its really hard to balance emotions and situations when your getting married and Sheryl was there every step of the way. It actually seems like she's my wedding planner, counselor, and friend plus the person marrying us lol and she's so affordable...
Picking Jessica was one of the most wise decisions we've made for our wedding. She was always on time, and her communication was clearly and timely. Most importantly, she took the time to understand our background and delivered a very touching homely. I love her and would highly recommend her!
My partner and I, after 10 long years of being together, finally decided to tie the knot. Among the many decisions to be made re: our wedding was hiring the officiant. We are a diverse family unit, and wanted someone who was sensitive to our wishes. Rev. Gail turned out to be the perfect choice! She patiently endured our multiple changes to our vows, worked with the challenges of our venue,was very supportive to our needs, and basically took our worries away when we felt a bit overwhelmed from all the wedding details. I highly recommend her as a kind and professional wedding officiant. Thank you, Gail, for helping to make our special day go smoothly.
I highly recommend Sara Shendelman as a wedding officiant! She did my wedding with such warmth and enthusiasm, musical talent and professionalism, i couldn't have imagined anything better. The photographers even came up to me after and expressed to me what a unique and wonderful ceremony it was. She helped guide us through the planning process, allowing our personality and beliefs to shape the service, but providing the traditional foundation which we desired. She was such a delight to work with and so easy to get in touch with when I had questions, she made this stressed out bride feel completely at ease! The guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended.
Bridget is wonderful! We wanted simple and heart felt sentiment for our vows that reflect who we are, where we came from and what we feel for each other and Bridget delivered. I'd recommend her to anyone who desires an officiant to express joy in a way that feels real. You cannot go wrong with the services she offers!
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!
Amber was a delight to have at our wedding. She brought out the best of both of us and presented our love for each other in a way that represented us exactly. My husband and I just celebrated our 10 th anniversary and we went back and read our vowes and remembered how it felt to say these words to each other. We will always cherish our wedding ceremony
I used Hamei for my wedding last year after I witnessed him marry friends of my husband and I. I was so impressed with his professionalism and ability to create such a meaningful ceremony. We needed help deciding on our vows and he helped us decide on how to format it. We already had met him once but he insisted we stop by his restaurant to go over what we wanted from him. I'm glad we did. I highly recommend meeting with him in person. (He bought me and my husband 2 glasses of wine while we chatted with him . ) ;)
Christopher deLellis, Guidance and Grace, performed the wedding ceremony for my son and my now daughter in law about a year ago. I am not simply posting this "view" of praise because the wedding was for my son, but it was the BEST wedding I have ever witnessed. Yes, the emotional love was bursting as my son married his best friend. But, the ceremony performed by Christopher was as personal as it was professional. He spent time with my son and his now wife to prepare incredibly personal and pertinent vows and also developed a handfasting segment during the wedding that was of particular importance to my son and his wife. Christopher was amazing, charming, and most of all, incredibly present while performing the service with the two of them AND the group of gathered loved ones who were the wedding guests. Actually, one of the couples attending the wedding hired Christopher for their wedding after experiencing first hand how incredible he is. If you are looking for someone to perform a service for you who is a dedicated and highly gifted celebrant, hire Christopher deLellis. A wedding between two people is a once in a lifetime event that you want to cherish forever. Christopher gives you this experience! BTW, we later hired Christopher to do our home blessing when we sold our house of over 30 years of ownership. We invited friends, family and neighbors to this special event, and Christopher performed a splendid and moving ceremony to give us all a special closure to our home and all of the memories we made under the roof. We were so impressed, we had him also bless our new home. The wedding and our home blessings were not religious, but very spiritual, deeply moving, and gave us new memories that we have forever in our hearts. Talk to him about his ability to personalize and type your wedding or other special event. He can do it all with Guidance and Grace.
Ms. Parson performed our wedding two years ago. She not only helped us write our vows, but performed the ceremony with sincerity grace. I would recommend her to anyone needing a wedding officient. Pasquale Grasso III San Francisco, California

I first started designing wedding ceremonies and rituals when I was six, for my uncles' wedding. I officiated my best friend from high school's wedding because my spiritual background validated his families needs, while I was willing to offer him an alternative to a "religious" wedding. Next labor day I will be officiating my sister and her fiances wedding in affirmation that their wedding is neither a religious proclamation nor just a governmental process but that it is fundamentally a means to include and invite their family and community of friends in sharing in the process of their union. I have studied and identify as a participate in a lot of different lineages of spiritual teachings. I'd be excited to have a conversation with you.
