    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.

    Professional and Kind

    Brian officiated our mini wedding at Hyatt Highlands Inn Carmel in June and we were so thankful for his kind presence and expertise! He provided all the information we needed regarding wedding license info, tips and checklists, and was always available via email and zoom. I loved that he set up a zoom meeting a few weeks prior to our wedding so we could do a face-to-face, get to know us, and ask him any last minute questions - especially because we live over an hour away from Carmel! I appreciated how friendly and kind he was with our friends and family. He also works with his wife Heidi who does photography at weddings, but unfortunately she was doing another wedding on our date. I am so happy that Brian was the one officiating our wedding. His speech was perfect, funny, and had everything we wanted to include in a short period of time. He even mailed our wedding license for us and sent us a follow up email with FAQs about how to obtain a copy etc. Thank you Brian for being a part of our wedding journey!!!!!

    Amazing Monterey Ceremony!

    Brian went above and beyond as our wedding officiant. He really takes the time to understand your personal love story and made our ceremony very memorable. He knows all the right questions to open you up. He made the whole process stress free, which gave us time to focus on writing our vows. When I accidentally said “I do” too early he turned it into a memorable funny moment with a quick joke about my eagerness to be married. Oops!
    I would recommend him to all my family and friends in the future.
