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 Wedding Ceremony Experience
Rev. Rovan does a wonderful job helping you prepare a beautiful ceremony, no matter how religious you want it to be (or not be). He gives you many examples of different elements of ceremonies and is willing to sit down and talk with you before the day arrives. He arrives on-time, dressed professionally and ready to go.Sent on 09/05/2019
In terms of the actual ceremony, Rovan really goes out of his way to put you at ease when you are standing up at the altar. He intentionally speaks clearly so that you can understand and repeat what he is saying (vows). Helping bring calm to the chaos of the day was refreshing and something that was much appreciated. Don't worry about Rovan or his part, he will make sure everything runs smoothly and your ceremony stays on target and on schedule. We had multiple people approach us after the ceremony and tell us it was the best wedding ceremony they have ever heard.
Thanks again, Rovan, you were wonderful!

Everything you need in an officiant and more!
We had some trouble on deciding our officiant, but we are glad we chose Rovan at Thoughtful Weddings. He has done many weddings before and knows what to do and what not to do. He was nice enough to meet us in person so we could share our story with him to help write the ceremony script. When we asked him to change the initial script to something more custom than traditional, he accepted and helped us perfect the text for the ceremony. His vow kit was extremely helpful for us to write our personal vows. We highly recommend Rovan at Thoughtful Weddings!Sent on 09/01/2019

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!
