DJ officiated our wedding on 08.30.2019. He was one of the most professional people we have had the pleasure to meet. He was on top of everything and listen to what we wanted. He took the time to understand our love story and to make sure the audience captured it. He did a bilingual service and his skills impressed all of our friends and family. After the ceremony, all everyone could talk about was how beautiful the ceremony was and how he truly captured our love and incorporated our friends and family to join in our promise to our marriage. DJ, your truly made our ceremony one that we will never forget and we are forever thankful for your commitment.Sep 2, 2019VerifiedOne For Life Weddings's reply

DJ did such a wonderful job officiating our wedding and exceeded any expectations we had for the day of! He had a beautiful way of incorporating our love story into the ceremony. We FaceTimed a few times before our wedding day, when we finally met the day of it felt like we had known him forever! We highly recommend choosing him to officiate your special day!Jul 3, 2019Verified
DJ did an incredible job officiating our wedding! He is extremely personable, professional, and responsive. He is also bilingual in English and Spanish which is exactly what my wife and I were looking for. The ceremony was officiated in both languages and in a way that was time efficient and honoring for both families. Another thing we appreciated was the stories and personal things we told him about our relationship that were woven into the ceremony. If you are looking for a charismatic and all around genuine person to share in the love, excitement, and joy of your day I highly recommend DJ.Jul 16, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is pretty straightforward: $225 base fee for the wedding - including the ceremony preview conference or meeting, communication, preparation of your custom ceremony, early arrival and handling of wedding certificate. A surcharge of $100 will be added for directing (or participating in) the rehearsal. A surcharge of $75 will be added for Bilingual (Spanish) weddings. No charge for assistance in writing vows Prices based on 20-minute travel time from my Castle Rock office. Additional travel fees apply for weddings/rehearsals outside the home area.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our process is simple and aimed at taking the pressure off of you! 1) We schedule your free, no-strings-attached 15-minute introductory phone or video conference for a time that is convenient for the two of you, during which you can share with me your desired “feel” for your wedding and ask me any questions you have regarding the process listed below or any questions in general. 2) You receive (via email) a ceremony planning guide that helps you think through the elements you may want to include in your ceremony. 3) You have the option to complete a 1-page background questionnaire that allows you to share with me whatever you want me to know about you and helps me tailor your ceremony in a more personal way. 4) We schedule a 1-hour ceremony preview video conference (or in-person meeting) where we work through the ceremony planning worksheet, the various parts of the ceremony and the options and choices you have. YOU decide how you want your ceremony to feel and what elements you want to include as we discuss it together! 5) If you are confident we are a good fit, you can secure my services with a $75 non-refundable deposit payable via Venmo, Cash App, PayPal, Zelle, cash or check. 6) We work together via phone or email on any remaining elements or details as I craft your special ceremony 7) OPTION: If you desire, I may be available to lead or participate in your wedding rehearsal for an additional fee (we will have discussed this at our meeting). 8) OPTION: If you desire premarital counseling, I am certified with Prepare-Enrich (a premier marriage enrichment program), and am happy to schedule sessions with you before (or even after your wedding) for an additional fee. 8) On your big day, I arrive 30-40 minutes before your ceremony start time, check in with you or your wedding coordinator (or groom or whomever you designate), and conduct your custom ceremony. 9) I complete and we sign the marriage certificate you bring (must be secured through your county clerk's office beforehand) and ensure it is properly mailed to the county clerk. 10) I remain available to you to provide support or counsel as you build your lives together!
