    Father Jerry Bellamy was absolutely unforgettable. His words were so touching and his jokes added a perfect touch (especially for our nerves)! I am so grateful we were able to have him as our officiant!

    Jerry was the best marriage officiant we could of ask for on our wedding day, he was caring, loving, and entertaining. He is also responsive and on time and everything went smoothly and I would recommend him to my friends for their wedding!

    Father Jerry Bellamy's reply:

    J Ln and G: Thank you for your comments. Meeting both of you and planning every detail of your ceremony, was a joy. You brought together two families of very different cultural backgrounds. Your love is magnetic. Our ceremony took place at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, a fitting beautiful background for you. Come to Santa Barbara for a visit please. 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!
