    Beautiful moment in our life

    We opted for an intimate wedding with only 12 guests in order to keep the costs and stress level down. Brian was a great choice. He was very accommodating and easy to work with. He was great at helping us tailor vows that matched our values which made the moment that much more special for us. Brian’s reading of the ceremony nearly brought tears to my eyes and the guests. Thank you Brian for helping to make our ceremony so beautiful!

    Exceptional!!

    Brian Lyke is a professional and a genuinely nice person. My fiance and I were traveling from across the country to get married in CA. We had a phone call with Brian and he took the time to learn about us as a couple and our love for each other. He offered to help us if we needed any assistance in writing our vows. He was always kind and responsive. Unfortunately, Covid-19 forced us to cancel our ceremony only a few weeks prior to the big day. When I reached out to Brian, he offered to send me the ceremony he wrote in case we wanted to use. He wrote a beautiful ceremony and his compassion and kindness during a hard time will not be forgotten. Thank you, Brian!!

    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!

  • Carmel Photography Wedding Photographers

    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.

  • Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination Wedding Planners

    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
