Congratulations on your upcoming wedding or renewal! Since 2009, I have officiated over 800 weddings and have enjoyed every minute of it. This is your special day, and my job is to write a beautiful ceremony that you, and your guests, will remember and enjoy. Over the past 10 years, I have officiated weddings from Santa Cruz to Big Sur, from Monterey to Pacific Grove and everywhere in between.
As a non-denominational wedding officiant, I will work with you to create the exact ceremony that you want. I am always available to answer any questions – even if it is just about the area or other local vendors. I have been involved with weddings since 1989, lived in the area since 1993, and have enjoyed providing memorable wedding experiences as an officiant and planner. Since 2011, I have been named as one of the top 5% wedding officiants in Monterey County. One of the things that makes me stand apart from other officiants is that I have also assisted in planning over 300 weddings.
I can be reached through the contact page or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at
831-601-1650. Thank you and happy planning!

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.

Thoughtful, prompt and a great personality
Brian was a complete joy to work with! We found him through a suggestion from the venue where we got married, and couldn't have been happier with him. He is accessible and communicative every step of the way, from the initial conversation to after the wedding. He'll work with you to create your ideal ceremony based on what you and your fiancee are dreaming of. Our guests were so impressed with his aura and energy, he added a wonderful touch to our wedding day. Moreover, he clearly explains the (confusing!) marriage license/ceremony process. He made sure we brought our unsigned marriage license to the ceremony, had our witness sign, and promptly mailed it to be processed. After the ceremony, he kindly reminded us that we needed to reach out to City Hall to request the certificate for our records/any name changes. So thoughtful and a joy to work with!

Felt like he knew us for years
Brian is amazing! Couldnt have been better. My husband and I are not too religious, and he was ok with a short prayer and whatever else we wanted. Brian took the time to get to know us, and put a lot of humor into it. He sent us a draft of what he would read the day of, and he didnt change it, and read everything perfect word for word. From our guests we got so many compliments sayin it was "the best" ceremony they have been to. It was so perfect! I highly recommend Brian!

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
