Hey Guys, I know choosing an officiant is tough. Check out my pictures and reviews and see what you think. I hope my reviews will serve as an endorsement of my work and passion. Honestly, I got into the wedding "BIZ" becuase i was sick of sitting through boring ceremonies. All in my 20's it was one boring ceremony over and over. Don't let that be your ceremony. Lets make sure your wedding is a celebration of love and not a funeral. If you hire me, you will be glad you did. We will have a blast and your ceremony will be fun and upbeat but at the same time intimate for you guys. I custom write every single ceremony based on your love story.

A little about me:
I am happily married to my best friend, Megan. We both grew up in Orange County and now live in San Diego where I am a Pastor at Canyon Springs Church in Scripps Ranch. We have two amazing girls Ayven (2) and Sage (1). Personally, I love surfing, golfing, reading, playing with my kids and Korean BBQ (my guilty pleasure).
For my wife and I, the ceremony was the most valued and special part of our wedding. I want you to be able to say those exact same words. Each ceremony I do is crafted uniquely to the couple and is based all around your love story. Anyone can read some vows and make it official. When you hire me you are hiring a communicator – I will connect with your audience, make it personal, and still keep it concise.
The Socal Wedding Officiant caters to different wedding types with a 30-minute average ceremony length, including civil unions; non-religious, single religion, and interfaith ceremonies; and vow renewals. They do rehearsals prior to the event to make sure everyone is on the same page. Their religious ceremonies cover agnostic, Baptist, Episcopalian, Jewish, Methodist, Presbyterian, Anglican, Catholic, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mormon, Orthodox Christian, and Quaker traditions. The Socal Wedding Officiant also offers counseling and custom vows.

Best Officiant Ever
Chad is absolutely amazing. He is so helpful and responsive leading up to your wedding date. He gets to know the both of you and makes the ceremony personal, meaningful, and funny. Chad was always quick to respond to any questions we had and super helpful figuring out the ceremony and vows. He makes the ceremony more sincere and lighthearted at the same time, some might say he's a magician. At the end of it all we were so glad we had decided to go with Chad he made our wedding complete.Sent on 09/13/2020

Made our ceremony very special!
Chad worked with us to perform our elopement ceremony in San Diego this month. I usually don't write reviews but he was so excellent I can't pass on the opportunity too tell others.Sent on 10/28/2020
- Ceremony was very personal. He customized it and made it uniquely ours without making it too complex.
- It was easy and stress free. We eloped because we didn't want to deal with the stress of the wedding. Chad made the process lighthearted and preparation for it enjoyable.
I would like to also highlight that he was very open and respectful of the fact that we wanted to include a Hebrew ring prayer and breaking of the glass in our ceremony.

The perfect wedding officiant
Chad was absolutely amazing, my wife and I could not have asked for a better wedding officiant. Chad was efficient, on time, and all of our guests loved the way he handled the ceremony. The way he presented was lively, genuine, professional, and had a bit of greatly appreciated humor sprinkled in. To top it off, he even noticed my fresh fade that I had done just for the wedding. We are very happy with the way everything turned out and would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family! Thank you Chad!Sent on 11/15/2020
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Chad was a pleasure to work with! He officiated an incredible elopement I was photographing earlier this year. We hiked out to a mountain top in the freezing cold with our clients, and he was so positive and fun the whole time! It was such a pleasure to work along side him, I can't recommend him enough!
