We hired Dr. jKonrad to be our minister on the beach under the Golden Gate bridge last minute because the court was full. He was able to meet us where we liked and he was very professional and made us laugh. It was a quick ceremony for just the two of us (we're having a wedding at another time) and it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you!!

I hired Pastor John to be the minister for a wedding I was coordinating. He did an excellent job! He was very easy to work with and had a heartwarming ceremony for the couple. He made the ceremony personalized which was more meaningful to the couple. Thank you Rev. John!!

We found Joe through the recommendation of our friend Emma who sent us a list of possible ministers who will officiate our ceremony. The moment we read his profile, we KNEW that he's the one. Who else can best exemplify the sanctity of marriage but a person who has been married for 35 years (and counting)? We also admire the fact that Joe is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights in the country and as a same-sex couple, it is very important for us to have an officiant who understands and empathize with our desire to seal this commitment and celebrate our love in front of our family and friends. Thank you JOE for being such a great part of our wedding. You're like our huggable Santa Claus---so endearing, sincere. Your charm made for such a special wedding ceremony. I recommend him to everyone, same-sex or heterosexual couples as you wedding officiant. It makes such a big difference when your minister genuinely cares.

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 was the officiant for our wedding in Oakland on 9/8/12 and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding! She was gentle, kind and was so easy to work with - the ceremony came together beautifully and our friends are still talking about what a great ceremony we had. She has very creative ideas and was easily able to incorporate our 3 year old daughter into the ceremony as we wished. She's very professional and an all-around warm and generous person. We can't recommend Shyamala enough

The wedding was great. The ceremony conducted by Rev. Robert Mize went well, It was short but sweet and nice. And i will never forget my wedding because our officiating minister is from the united states of america so my wedding is literally a English wedding. hehe All in all it was a great wedding conducted by Pastor Robert Mize. the food is great by the way.

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.

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.

If you are looking for someone that will take time to get to know you and take the time to really captured your love story and share it with the people you love, then jesika is the woman to go to. I had the pleasure to work with jesika on the most important day of my life, i didn't know anything about how to plan a wedding, where to start, here comes jesika to save the day. She helped us with everything we needed (even if it wasn't on her job description) we work on our vows with her since my husband and I had no idea where to start. She was really hands on, kept in touch with both my husband and i throughout the whole process. She is just an amazing person to work with i was very pleased with the job that she did, everyone at the wedding loved her because she really captured our love and was able to shared it with my loved ones. Despite the heat she kept it very professional never complained i was just very happy with her and the service. She is definitely someone i will recommend to any of my friends that are thinking of getting married.

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!

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!
