Wedding Officiant

Chaplain Potter was the absolute best choice for a wedding officiant! He made our wedding very personal and special as we got to pick what vows and readings we wanted! His sense of humor and love of his faith and work is something you can’t pass up! Thankyou so much for your advice!

Wedding Officiant

Chaplain Potter was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was about a week and a half away and he jumped right in and helped us through the process. He was friendly and professional as well as accommodating to what we wanted. I don’t plan to have another wedding but would definitely work with him again if I did. Thank you Chaplain Potter.

John was absolutely wonderful. From the first time we contacted him he was so very good about returning phone calls, emails, and texts. He helped us to have a ceremony in our home that was just perfect for us. He was on time, kind, professional and so helpful. We highly recommend this Chaplain.

Chaplain Potter was fantastic to work with! He took the time to understand what we were looking for, what was most important to us, and tailored his services to make our day perfect. He went out of his way to ensure every detail was exactly how we envisioned. We could not have asked for anyone better to officiate the wedding!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Folks are always welcome to call or email with questions. We can schedule a free 30 minute wedding consultation to discuss what you want. The sit down can be at a coffee shop or restaurant near you. We will discuss how you met, your goals, what vows you want to make, what readings are right, review wedding packages and tailor a ceremony that works for you. After that we review a wedding agreement that outlines all the specific details for your wedding plan. That saves your date on the calendar and gets you moving down the aisle.

    I am an ordained Christian pastor and an Army chaplain. Graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree from Azusa Pacific Seminary.
