YES, despite the Coronavirus crisis, I can I can still lead a small wedding of 10 people or less, even on very short notice! We'll keep our physical distance to be safe. Don't have a license because county offices are closed? I know how to help you get one anyway to be legally married! Call or text 951-234-6538 for more info! And keep reading!
I'm Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville of SoCal Christian Weddings, based in Temecula, California. I am a traditionally trained and ordained Christian minister with 30+ years of pastoral experience in civilian churches and military settings (for 26 years I served as a Navy chaplain). With that background, I can provide you with a ceremony that will reflect your spirituality supported by my authentic pastoral presence that will put you and your guests at ease. Upon your request for info, I will send you a very detailed quote for service, including a first/customizable draft of a ceremony, photos of different outfits I can wear (you can choose for me to wear a suit/tie, minister's gown, or something more casual for beach/backyard settings), along with information on how to obtain your marriage license, and more. You can review all this info together as a couple, and then we can work out a time to meet in person or if distance is a concern, by phone/Facetime/Skype. Working together, we will co-create a customized and highly personalized ceremony of about 20 minutes that you will cherish for the rest of your life! (If you request a quote for service, please be sure to tell me the venue & city for your ceremony, along with the date and time--even if you are still working out details, your best guess will help me provide you with the best information about my availability and fee--thank you!)
When working with me, I will listen to understand your dream for your wedding ceremony. I can help you write your own vows if you choose, and can include a sand ceremony, wine ceremony or even involve your children; whatever you want to make your ceremony just right. I also offer optional premarital counseling (relationship & commuications coaching) in 3 sessions in person or by FaceTime/Skype. After the ceremony, I provide you with a keepsake marriage certificate and the actual script used in the ceremony, plus I will ensure your marriage license is filled out correctly by your witnesses and filed correctly with the state. My other wedding officiant services include the following:

Breeanda Fico · Getting married on 10/10/2020
Due to the Covid-19 our wedding was canceled but of course my Fiancé and still wanted to get married and now with a baby on the way even more so! Pastor Jeff went well than above and beyond for us. He searched for hours looking at public parks, beaches, just about anywhere we could possibly have a very tiny short ceremony. He even offered his home if we weren't able to find a place. Luckily by the grace of God and Pastor Jeff's dedication in helping we found a place!!! Finding Pastor Jeff has been such a blessing! Now I can happily say I will be marrying my best friend and the love of my life this weekend!! Thank you Pastor Jeff!Sent on 05/21/2020

Jeff is awesome!!
He’s very detail oriented & we loved that. We sat down with Jeff for like 4 hours in his living room going over everything for the wedding...& a little bit of football too lol. It was great to vibe with him! We walked away knowing we hired the right officiant for our ceremony. And just as we expected, he WAS the perfect officiant for our wedding. Thank you Jeff!Sent on 09/10/2019
