Choosing the right officiant is one of the most important decisions that you can make as the officiant sets the tone for the entire ceremony. I can serve the greater Los Angeles area. I am open to helping you celebrate the most important day of your life. None of my services are pre-written. I customize the entire service to your is your big day, so let's make it "yours!"

I am honored to have received the WeddingWire's Couple's Choice Award for multiple years. It is an honor to help couples craft the ceremony of their dreams! Some couples choose me because of my training and experience while others want someone who is fun and energetic. Either way, you will be comfortable working with me as we communicate regularly over coffee, emails, texts, and phone calls ensuring that everything goes as planned. You will have the draft of the ceremony ahead of time, so you can be comfortable with the feel.

My biggest advice to couples is to design your big day so that your friends and family walk away knowing that they went to your wedding, not someone else's!

We absolutely loved having Jonathan help us with our wedding!

We had two major things working against us in our preparation - we have hectic schedules and we didn't know what we wanted for a wedding ceremony. Jonathan met with us after dinner on video chats, telephone calls, and lots of emails to ensure that both my fiance and me were happy with the ceremony design and wording. Jonathan explained all of the ins and outs of the ceremony. In particular, I appreciated how he explained why some wedding ceremonies have a unity aspect (candles, sand, dirt, ribbons, etc.). He helped us find what would work for us personally and practically (it was an outdoor wedding).

If you are looking for someone to help you throughout the process without bringing a list of things that you have to do for them, Jonathan is the best!

Having Johnathan Hall from Make It Yours Weddings and Ceremonies as our officiant was the easiest and best decision we made! Working with Johnathan was seamless and absolutely enjoyable! Our ceremony was exactly what the groom and I had vision. In fact after our ceremony we had guests ask if our officiant was an old family friend because the way he spoke felt so personable. I would highly recommend Make IT Yours Weddings and Ceremonies for your wedding.

Professional, well spoken, kind, organized, punctual, reliable, willing to go the extra mile. Jonathan was the perfect fit for our Santa Barbara wedding. We had found Jonathan while searching the internet for a local officiant and could not be happier. He communicated with us very well throughout the entire process and worked perfect for us. Her family being Catholic and my family being Christian, Jonathan worked with us in constructing a perfect mix of tradition and modern day beliefs. He even went as far as asking us what we wanted him to wear! I would highly recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for an officiant.

The main reason why we give Jonathan such high praise is because during the shuffle and commotion of the wedding we some how misplaced our marriage license and thought we would have to go through the entire process again. Jonathan went to the courthouse personally and handled the matter by himself and let us know when it was done.

With wedding being so hectic, having someone you know you can rely on, is really one less thing you will have to worry about. Also, when Jonathan asks if you would prefer him turn in the wedding license, SAY YES!
