    Absolutely Amazing!!

    Ken Hoelscher of SoCal Vows

    I got to married on the 13th of October, Ken was our officiant for the big day. When I inquired with him he was very nice and gave me all the information I could possibly need.

    His pricing is very affordable. If you are wanting a ceremony Rehearsal before the big day make sure you inform him so that he has it in his calendar and can give you an accurate price!

    He was very professional. If you are getting married I highly recommend Ken as your officiant!

    Hire socal vals!

    After my husband and I got engaged, we were overwhelmed with the idea of wedding planning. We knew we wanted a beach wedding, but we didn’t even know where to start. We stumbled upon SoCal Vows and hiring them was the best decision we could have made. After selecting one of their wedding packages, they started working on our permits, connected us with one of their officiants, connect us with their floral team, helped us get our marriage license, connected us with their photographer, provided all the day-of set up, and sent us emails throughout the process of what you should be working on as the day approaches. We got to choose our wedding theme and colors, as well as prelude, processional, and exit music. The only thing we had to schedule on our own was transportation to the wedding, and one of their first coordinator emails suggested a list of local businesses that could assist with this. If you are planning to get married in Southern California, make your life easy and hire SoCal Vows. We are so happy with the wedding they planned for us and would 10/10 recommend.

It was a pleasure for me to have recently photographed a wedding that Ken officiated. The lovely couple, who had contacted Ken and me separately for their Del Mar wedding, I am certain were very delighted as well, and for simple yet most important reasons: Ken was sincere, eloquent, and perfectly orchestrated a comfortable and beautiful ceremony.

Pastor Ken is one of the most delightful and real people that I know. He has consistently performed excellent ceremonies and the comments from the couples are always fabulous. If you want a down to earth pastor who you and your guests can relate to.. that can help bring a feeling of warmth and love to a ceremony, Pastor Ken is the guy!
