Our wedding was the most treasured moment we shared together! We both felt everything was perfect and we couldn't be more happy with the way Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville blessed our marriage. Jeff not only provided a beautiful ceremony, he, also counseled us with exceptional materials & literature previously for us to read and understand the importance of covenant & marriage. Jeff is the reason our ceremony was to perfection. He helped us through each step of the way to make our moment the most treasured time for us. We are so thankful for his leadership, the gift to orchestrate, and make sure every detail is handled in the"Spirit of Excellence." Jeff, you are a gift from the Lord, "May you continue to prosper & share the gifts that have been bestowed upon you. God Bless & your family. Sincerely, Mr & Mrs Andrew & Phenella RuckoldtApr 29, 2017Verified
Made the experience easy, seamless, memorable. I fully trusted Pastor Jeff in not just executing the ceremony portion but really being part of the wedding and making the entire wedding a wonderful experience for us and our guests.Jun 1, 2017Verified
I highly recommend Chaplain Jeff to officiate your wedding ceremony. He is kind, thoughtful and thorough. From the moment we hired Chaplain Jeff, he guided my daughter and son-in-law continuously until their wedding day. Chaplain Jeff was full of ideas, is encouraging to couples, and the love of Christ shines in him. With Chaplain Jeff's direction, words cannot express how touching and beautiful my daughter's wedding ceremony was Thank you so much Chaplain Jeff.Mar 28, 2017VerifiedSoCal Christian Weddings Officiant's reply
Jeannie, it was truly a pleasure and privilege to lead the ceremony for Andrew and Kristyn, and to serve your entire family. Thank you for selecting my services for a God-honoring wedding! Many blessings, Jeff (Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville)
Jeff did a terrific job for my wedding. He was very meticulous and knowledgeable as to what we wanted and how we wanted our wedding the be performed. I would recommend him to anyone seeking to get married with true Christian values.Sep 20, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fee starts at $295 for weddings Mon-Fri, higher for Sat/Sun. A visit to my home or FaceTime/Skype consultation to "check me out" is free; you can decide afterwards about hiring me. If the couple chooses the optional premarital counseling, I have an separate fee for that which is $375.00. I can also provide sound equipment and music for smaller ceremonies like beach or backyard ceremonies, (but I'm not a DJ).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?You receive my quote, review the attachments including the draft of your ceremony, then contact me by text/cell/email to let me know you're interested. We talk by phone/FaceTime, or preferably meet in person to discuss your particulars, and you can indicate if you want me to serve you. I'll revise the ceremony text per our discussion for you to approve. I require a 50% deposit by PayPal, credit card, Venmo, check or cash to formally reserve your day/time. I have conducted many mini-rehearsals in my home with just the couple as part of the consultation, at no extra charge. (Fee for off-site rehearsal applies). I arrive 60 minutes early to all ceremonies to refresh the couple's memory and make sure everyone else knows what to do. Final payment is due before the ceremony, when we will also sign the marriage license. Then we have a joyous ceremony, you have a party, and I go home and mail the marriage license for you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master's degree and a Doctoral degree from an accredited seminary. Every year I attend the Wedding MBA Convention with thousands of other wedding professionals, and I also spend at least one full week of training through my denomination to remain on top of the ministry field to offer the highest level care to people within my reach.
