    Grateful! highly recommend Father Jerry.

    We couldn’t thank Father Jerry enough for being a big part of our special day. My husband and I didn’t know where to begin. He was our guide, a mentor, and coordinator. He took time to get to know us and made sure we would be happy the day of . He was a great help throughout the whole process. Father Jerry made our ceremony memorable. It was heartfelt and our guests also loved his sense of humor. Also, a big plus he is bilingual!. We received so many compliments on our ceremony. Thank you Father Jerry!. You wont regret having Father Jerry as your officiant.

    Spreadsheet to choose BEST Officiant

    The most important part of your wedding day is your CEREMONY. You will have many meals and parties to look back on in your lives, but only ONE ceremony. Thousands of people can be authorized to perform a ceremony, having NO training or experience. I hear stories all of the time of how terrible some ceremonies are. I have a SPREADSHEET for you to consider URGENT ISSUES about Officiants. I will send it to you....

    The issues you have to consider about Officiants are:

    1. How many years of formal training to officiate weddings
    2. Is really ordained or only has "on line" license
    3. Is trained in counseling
    4. Trained in Catholic-Christian-Jewish-Muslim weddings
    5. Years of experience performing weddings
    6. How many weddings performed
    7. Is bilingual
    8. Performs Same Sex weddings
    9. What wedding websites showing
    10. How many reviews
    11. Are all of the reviews 5 STARS
    12. Performs weddings everywhere in CA

    Let me know if you want me to send that to you. If you have any questions 805-687-4248

  • Ciel Bleu Event Design Wedding Planners

    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!

  • Hoste Events Wedding Planners

    Father Jerry Bellamy will make your wedding ceremony relaxed, personal and beautiful. I love how he gets to know the couples so that the ceremony rings authentic to who the couple is. I always know my couples are in good hands when working with him.
