    Very understanding and compassion

    Me and my beautiful wife found Jerry online since we wanted to have our wedding at the Santa Barbara court house. We had our wedding on November 20th around 2pm. We had already decided to have it in the garden area where you didn't need reservations. He gave us great ideas and direction with the wedding. He also did it all over the phone wich was great for us since we live in Los Angeles. We had our ceremony up on the Bell Tower. Everything went smoothly. I would definitely recommend Jerry. He is accommodating and respects all views and beliefs.

    Brenda and Raul - the clock tower at the courthouse really turned out to be a beautiful location for your ceremony. Come back and visit SB. Father Jerry

    Father Jerry was great!

    My wife and I could not have been happier with the experience we had with Father Jerry. We initially found his profile on wedding wire and decided to call since he had good reviews. Right from the very beginning we knew we had chosen the right officiant for our ceremony. Father Jerry is very funny, jovial and a very good story teller. He was interested in knowing our story to better accommodate us.

    After our initial phone call with him, we setup a meeting in Santa Barbara (where our ceremony was held.) He was just as funny in person as he was on the phone. It was very apparent he had a ton of experience doing this. He walked us through what to expect but also kept in mind what we wanted. The meeting lasted about and hour and a half. By the end of it, he put us more at easy with the process. He heard what specific details we wanted and he was more than open to accommodate any requests.

    We had a couple of changes as the wedding neared, and he was accessible and open to changing plans. We were very happy about that. On the day of the wedding, we both were nervous about how organized our ceremony would appear. We did not have a wedding coordinator, so naturally we did not know what to expect. Father Jerry took control the moment he arrived and the ceremony turned out great! Both my wife and I still talk about how awesome the ceremony turned out. Many of our guests loved the event as well. He got our guests to laugh several times.

    I would recommend Father Jerry to anyone, including my closest friends and family. If you chose him, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Father Jerry!

    Catherine and Daniel, you came from Long Beach to SB for all of the planning and ceremony. Both of you have great values and sense of humor and holiness. It was great to meet and work with you. Merry Christmas. Father Jerry

    It is very challenging for couples to not only choose the right person to marry them but also to find the right person! In this small pocket of California there are limited choices. I am so relieved when my clients mention Father Jerry because I know not only will they have a memorable and exquisitely penned ceremony but they will also go into their day organized, calm and excited. Father Jerry has many years of experience and knows how to set my clients' mind at ease. I highly recommend him for the job!
