Rovan's professionalism and personality sold us as soon as we met him. He took the time to learn about our relationship - how we met, what we like, what our plans were - and formed a personalized story-telling script to capture our wedding day audience. He kept it light-hearted and included a few funny moments, but also included the usual vows, a blessing, and a reading to expand our ceremony overall. Also, he really touched on the love surrounding us by including our families and the audience in the program. It was engaging and we've been told more than once that he did an excellent job as our officiant!Sent on 09/15/2017
Being a worrier, I had plenty of concerns and questions for Rovan throughout the planning process and the rehearsal. He always responded quickly and completely and was able to come up with solutions when needed. Besides performing a wonderful ceremony, he also did an exceptional job with our rehearsal the night before. He was very detailed in what to do and when, and that made us and our wedding party even more comfortable with the walk-through.
if you are looking for an amazing speaker to capture your audience - and someone to make your day specialized to your tastes - Rovan's your guy. We fully recommend working with him for your upcoming wedding or event.

Beautiful and Professional Wedding Ceremony
Rovan did a wonderful job officiating our wedding ceremony. He has an extremely professional approach that makes everything simple and stress free while providing a ceremony that was beautiful, had a personal touch, and was exactly what we were looking for. Following the reception we had guests commenting to us all night about how lovely the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed listening to Rovan speak. I would definitely recommend Rovan to anyone who is looking for a simple yet beautiful ceremony that is totally stress free.Sent on 06/21/2019

A Must Have
Rovan was a top notch professional. He got to know us and our story and was able to compose a very personalized ceremony much different than the usual “Love is patient love is kind....” All our guests commented at how they enjoyed hearing our story. He was very responsive via email and phone throughout the entire planning process as well as very receptive to any changes we requested. He also expertly ran our rehearsal; he was puntional and very detailed on explaining how the ceremony would go. The day of our wedding he was early and spoke with all my vendors so that our ceremony would run smoothly which it did! I highly recommend Thoughtful Weddings/Rovan he made our day absolutely perfect!Sent on 06/01/2019

As both a wedding planner and a ceremony musician, I have coordinated and performed for over one hundred weddings over the past eight years of working in the wedding industry. Rovan is one of the absolute best officiants I have had the joy to work alongside - not only was he kind, considerate, and, yes, "thoughtful," in composing his ceremony wording and listening to the story and wishes of our bride and groom, he was so easy to work with in the planning leading up to the wedding and during the ceremony rehearsal the day before the wedding. Rovan is consistently responsive to emails, easy to get in touch with, and absolutely lovely as a person - we were completely on the same page as far as running the ceremony, the order of everything, and the processional, and he also swiftly accommodated some last minute "announcement" requests. I am so excited to have met him and will be recommending Thoughtful Weddings to all of my couples searching for an officiant in the future!
