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.

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!

Chad is one of a kind
Chad is easy going and delivered a great speech during our ceremony. He has the energy we were looking for and the enthusiasm we needed! I couldn't have chosen a better individual to wed us. Loved the experience.Sent on 08/15/2019
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!
