Chris is fantastic
Perfection!!!! We had a great experience with Vows From the Heart!
Once we booked him, he provided us with a Ceremony Handbook where you can customize your ceremony and make selections about the type of wedding ceremony you want (e.g. spiritual, non-spiritual), any acts of celebrations you want to include, how you want to be presented, and more. You can even submit your selections online, which was a nice option to have!
I have to say - we initially planned to write our own vows but got too busy and didn't have enough time after all so we asked Christopher literally 2 days before our wedding if we could use a traditional vow (i.e. repeat after me style) instead and he was able to make that change for us- even last minute, which we were so relieved to hear!
On the day of our wedding, Christopher was great! He checked in our us before the ceremony and made sure everything was smooth...and he did an AWESOME job! Everyone really liked him and you can tell he's a professional at this. For example, I noticed that he moved out of the way at certain times during the ceremony (e.g. the kiss) so that the photographer could get a good photo! I mean, he just nailed it to perfection! He made the ceremony very warm, inviting, and fun. He made the crowd laugh and cry while keeping everyone engaged throughout the ceremony!
With all this said, I highly recommend using Vows From The Heart as your officiant for your wedding! They will not disappoint!

Rev. Christopher and Chaplain Mary are the best of the best! I have been honored to work with them many times throughout the years and I am always happy to see they are on my calendar! They both give the most heartfelt ceremonies and truly love what they do. I highly recommend then to all my clients, they will not find any two more fun and a pleasure to work with!
We had the pleasure of working with Christopher Tuttle early this year at the Catamaran Resort in San Diego. We see a LOT of officiants, both professional and otherwise, and most of them are truly forgettable. But Christopher conducted a ceremony that still stands out to me as one of the best. With a very easy-going yet professional demeanor, he made the moment relaxed and light-hearted without sacrificing the class or the emotion. Exactly what you want for a beach wedding!
Reverend Chris Tuttle is truly amazing, and always is a pleasure to work with. He provides a wonderful service and experience to the couple, families and guests alike. Witty, professional and never boring. He is a rock solid choice for brides and grooms that are looking for that all important "flawless ceremony!"
