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.

Rovan was an amazing generous thoughtful and essential component of our wedding. From beginning to end he really worked hard to make this day everything we had hoped for. He took so much time and care writing our wedding ceremony and helping us craft a beautiful memory we will be able to remember and cherish forever. We got numerous comments that our ceremony was one of the most beautiful ceremonies people had been to and a major part of that was Rovan and his expertise. We cannot say thank you enough!!!Sent on 10/24/2018

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!
