I cannot say enough about Ken and Penjo with SoCal Vows. From the moment I inquired with SoCal Vows, Ken was extremely responsive and very thorough in his communication. When you have no clue who to use and who to trust these days, something about Ken made me feel very comfortable moving forward with his services. After making the decision to move forward, Ken's regular communication and instructions on what we need to do, asking us questions, getting to know us and coming to a place we've never been before made things so incredibly easy for us. We never even for one moment felt alone because we felt like Ken was right by our side the entire time. What was even more amazing was when we finally met Ken in person and he conducted our ceremony, it was like Ken had known us for a long time and made it feel so incredibly personal. Penjo contacted us the day of our ceremony to see how we were doing and to make sure we were ready for pictures prior to our ceremony.Sent on 01/04/2021

Ken was amazing!
Ken was outstanding. We planned the wedding from Arizona. He was easy to communicate with and did a great job of making our ceremony personal.Sent on 10/16/2018

Great Ceremony with Ken
Ken was great! He was extremely informative and communicative via email and took the time to find out more about my future husband and myself and weaved that information into the ceremony seamlessly. He was charismatic and well-liked by the guests and we are grateful that it went so smoothly. He answered our questions regarding the license and arrived early the day-of and made sure it was properly filled out and he also took the responsibility of turning it in so we did not have to. Thank you Ken!Sent on 02/15/2020
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend! Thanks again, Solace Weddings LLC
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!
