Best Officiant Out There!
Brian is absolutely fantastic in every way! He's very responsive, takes the time to get to know you as a couple and is an amazing writer. We LOVED our ceremony and it would not have been as great without Brian. He also has a way of putting you at ease, no matter how nervous you are, which is essential when you are standing in front of everyone! I would highly recommend Brian to any couple getting married, you definitely want him, there's no one better! Thank you again Brian for making our special day perfect.

Brian was probably the most laid back person my husband and I came into contact with while planning our wedding. He listened to our requests & delivered the most beautiful heartfelt ceremony we could have asked for. Trust me, you need Him!

Amazing Officiant - Brian Borgia
Planning for a wedding is stressful enough and without the proper players, it can turn into a nightmare.
Brian Borgia is amazing in what he does! My fiancee and I did not have a clue on what to do or expect during the ceremony but with Brian's experience he was able to guide us and keep us on track.
First, we scheduled an introductory call where he goes through our needs, wants, and expectations. Since we didn't have much of an expectation he gave us examples and ideas on the ceremonies that he has done in the past. We were bouncing ideas back and forth and he was not just sitting there taking notes instead, he provided his input. He also provided documentation on readings that helped quite a bit.
After the initial phone meeting, we scheduled to meet for an onsite at a hotel in Monterey where we went through the final checklist and interviewed us on details such as how we met, why we can't live without each other and how we see ourselves in the future.
In all, Brian brought us a memorable wedding ceremony which we will treasure in the future. It was beautiful, it was amazing and it was unforgettable. I look forward to our renewal of vows and we will definitely hire his services again.
Thank you, Brian!
