About SoCal Christian Weddings Officiant

YES, despite the Coronavirus crisis, I can still lead a small or large wedding even on very short notice! We can also plan for a larger, more formal "normal" wedding for when that is possible given state restrictions. Don't know how to get 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 retired Navy chaplain (I served 26 yrs) and a traditionally trained and ordained Christian minister with 30+ years of pastoral experience in civilian churches and military settings. 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/Zoom/Facetime. 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!)

Services Offered
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 Zoom/FaceTime if you are far away--done it that way many times for people out of state. 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:

  • Eloquent native English speaker, able to conduct portions of the ceremony in Spanish or German
  • Optional Premarital Counseling/Relationship Coaching (using insights from the SYMBIS online relational assessment)
  • Fully customized ceremony, I can help you write your own personalized vows if you choose
  • Ceremony length from 10-25 minutes, depending on your choices
  • Licensed officiant in all 50 states
  • Serving all of Southern California, willing to travel on request

    Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville is awesome!

    Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville was the perfect person to lead our ceremony. He had a virtual meeting with us months in advance, where we were able to rehearse the ceremony in the living room. His suggestions for location worked out beautifully, he scheduled us on the day we chose, and he was very accommodating with whatever changes we made along the way. Very detail orientated, personable, and highly professional. Not to mention the abundance of information on his website which even cover what to do after the big day. Rev. Jeff was at the location an hour early, coached every one on what to do, and even worked with the photographer to allow for just the right picture taking moments. We highly recommend Rev. Saville! Our wedding couldn't have turned out as wonderful as it did if it weren't for him.

    Brendan, your thoughtful review is deeply appreciated! I am so happy for you and Sylvia and how everything turned out! Since you gave me permission to post a photo of the three of us on Facebook, I did and it received more likes than almost any other wedding photo. Once again, thanks and many blessings! Jeff (Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville)

    Couldn't be happier

    Everything about working with Jeff from start to finish was fantastic. We couldn't have asked or hoped for anything better. His instruction leading up to during, and even post wedding are thoroughly detailed and gave us direction, he worked with our wedding party and family members to coordinate, led a magical ceremony, sent us pictures and mailed our license the very next day. My wife and I are Christians who are looking for a local faith community but currently dont have one and we found SO much value in Jeff's history and experience in ministry, and understanding and teaching the bible. We also got along like old friends after just a few conversations. A true professional through-and-through. We would recommend Jeff to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    What I really like about Jeff is that he understands the marriage is what is being celebrated and keeps that in the forefront of the wedding ceremony. Jeff takes time to get to know his couples and creates ,along with them, ceremonies that are personal and memorable . Professional, personable and a true gentleman ~ that is what you will get having Jeff with SoCal Christian Weddings officiate at you wedding .

  • Events By Annette Wedding Planners

    I always know my couples are in good hands when Jeff is their officiant. Jeff truly goes over every detailed of the ceremony with the couple to ensure it is just what they have envisioned. It is always a pleasure working with a true professional.
