Perfect elopement ceremony
We found Brian while searching for a wedding officiant in the Big Sur area for our elopement. His high remarks were confirmed when we contacted him and spoke with him over the phone. He was personable and cared about getting to know us so that he could personalize our ceremony for us. He was professional and easy to work with, and the ceremony he performed was thoughtful.Sent on 10/17/2020

Perfect elopement thanks to Brian
Brian married us last week and I cannot say enough great things about him. He was the epitome of professional, reliable, informative, responsive and most importantly, caring. He chose a perfectly breathtaking outdoor location for us, (we don't live in the Carmel area), and he chose the perfect words for our elopement ceremony. Brian is clearly passionate about what he does and we feel so grateful to have found him.Sent on 10/19/2020

Brian Lyke is a wonderful Officiant. He is quiet and sensitive and listens to his couples to create the perfect wedding ceremony. Everyone who has met Brian agrees that he is a great person and a perfect fit for their event. I always enjoy witnessing Brian's wedding ceremonies. I highly recommend Life Celebrations and Brian Lyke!
I have photographed countless weddings with Brian over the years - and each one is handled with sacredness and care. He always incorporates details of how the couple met or something significant in their lives. i have always found him to be kind, professional and gracious in helping the couple through some very nervous ceremonies. He is my number one recommendation for an officiant in our area.
I've worked with Rev. Brian Lyke since first starting out over 12 years ago and have always found him to be a caring and sincere celebrant. These qualities carry over into the ceremonies he creates for each of his couples. He also offers pre-marrital guidance, which is a helpful resource for those couples who feel they may need it. I enjoy working with Brian and highly recommend him to my couples. Patty Speirs, Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination, www.eldweddings.com
