Excellent Elopement Service at Big Sur
Brian prepared a wonderful elopement service for our wedding.
With his professional direction we were able to put this together in just three weeks.
Brian worked well with our chosen photographer in providing suggestions for coastal locations to have the service. The questionnaire he gave us provided him with excellent material on which to base our personalized wedding service.
COVID-19 restrictions provided us with a couple of challenges. Brian was able to help us through all these challenges and suggest alternatives.
On the day, Brian's quiet, professional style helped to calm our nerves. His polished service really highlighted the things we were looking for.
Anna and I are truly grateful for the care and attention to detail that Brian provided for our wedding. Thank you for making it a perfect day.Sent on 01/27/2021

We selected Brian to be our wedding officiant for our small ceremony at Fanshell Beach on the 17 mile Drive Monterey on May 21, 2016! From the very beginning upon our first contact with Brian via phone and email, we knew we made the right decision! Brian was very professional, kind, thoughtful and incredibly helpful in assisting us in selecting our wedding venue, flowers, photography, etc., and he wrote and delivered such a "beautiful" personalized ceremony for our special day. Brian was very quick to respond to any questions and/or needs throughout our wedding planning and he also took the time to personally meet with us to go everything prior to our actual wedding day. We are beyond pleased with Brian's services and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, warm, caring and incredibly kind wedding officiant! Thank you Brian!Sent on 07/18/2016

Brian was fantastic!
We are extremely happy we went with Brian to officiate our ceremony. Brian captured our entire relationship in a short, simple and sweet ceremony. He listened to everything we talked about, took all of our important life events and made it into a memorable speech. We laughed, we cried and we couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. We cannot recommend Brian enough!Sent on 04/07/2021

I've had the opportunity to work with Brian on several weddings and he's always punctual and caring when working with his couples. I never have to worry about him and always take a few moments to listen to his personalized ceremonies. I always look forward to working with him. - Patty Speirs, Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination
