Chad is fantastic!
From our first meeting via FaceTime we knew Chad was our guy. For our ceremony we envisioned serious but funny, personal to us as a couple, and not too long but not too short... and he did it all perfectly! Chad's wedding homework makes him stand out among the rest. What you and your fiance put into the homework is what will shine through during your ceremony. Right after our ceremony we had our family and friends ask where we found him because they never heard or been to a ceremony like his. He responded quickly to messages from the moment we reached out to him until the day of our wedding. We would highly recommend him... you'll be glad you did! Thank you Chad!Sent on 10/18/2018

Pastor Chad did such an amazing job! He was easy to work with and so nice! Everyone at our wedding kept asking how we knew him because he made it sound like he’s known us our whole relationship! We got so many compliments!!Sent on 05/20/2019

We eloped recently in San Diego, and searched for about a month looking for the right officiant to make our special day go as smoothly as possible. We came across Chad's information on WeddingWire and instantly reached out to see if he was available for the date we had in mind.Sent on 05/12/2019
Right off the bat, we had a really good feeling about Chad. We met up with him and got to know him a little better before making our decision. Outside of his obvious passion for his work, it became abundantly clear that Chad was very personable, genuine, and an overall great person. It was a no-brainer decision to choose him and that decision was fully vindicated come ceremony time.
Chad will customize your vows and ceremony however you like, and really goes above and beyond to ensure that your big day comes and goes without incident. He is very professional and thorough, but also makes sure that the day is all about the happy couple.
If you're still contemplating who to have officiate your wedding/elopement, STOP. Choose Chad, you won't regret it!
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!
