Anthony was a great officiant. He took the time to meet with us prior to the event on relatively short notice. He was very professional leading up to and through out the ceremony. He was able to answer all of our questions and was patient the day of the wedding while the event staff and guests were getting situated. Overall, my wife and I were happy to have him as part of our wedding ceremony.Mar 13, 2019Verified
We hired Anthony to officiate our wedding ceremony at Tavern on the Green, and we are so happy that we did! He was absolutely awesome! He showed up early, was ready, calm and collected, unlike myself.... which actually made me feel at ease. The ceremony was flawless, short and sweet, just how I wanted it! I would definitely recommend Anthony to anyone who’s looking for a wedding officiant. He really does great work! Thank you so much!Jun 10, 2019Verified

We met with Anthony about a month and a half before our wedding. He was very friendly, patient and knowledgable. He guided us through the process and helped us a lot. He was very punctual and responsive. On wedding day, Anthony showed up on-time and led a beautiful ceremony. He did it in both English and Spanish. Renata and I are glad that we picked him to officiate our wedding. Thank you, Anthony!Sep 6, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price is not standard. It is based on a number of factors including whether I'm required for a rehearsal, which language(s) are used, the location of the venue, and the date of the wedding. I usually offer discounts around the holidays.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We have a chat on the phone. Then I email them the wedding ceremony document which they can customize, and some JPEG images of the decorative certificates that I offer. We usually meet for coffee to review everything. We exchange contact information. On the day of the ceremony I text them saying that I'm on my way. After the ceremony I text again saying that the license is on it's way to the City Clerk. Once the couple receives their license from the Clerk, they email me to let me know. Sometimes we connect on social media as well.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 2008 I was hired by a wedding planner in Japan to conduct Christian-style weddings in Japanese, in chapels all around central Japan. For five months I trained by standing in the back of chapels watching others conduct ceremonies. I also went through language training to perform the ceremonies in Japanese without mistakes. When I returned to the US, I began conducting ceremonies in Spanish, Italian and French because I had studied those languages as well. I've done over 750 weddings to day; and counting!
