Patrick was a fantastic presence and a consummate professional at my wedding in June. In our meetings leading up to the big day he took time to carefully listen to my wife and I’s journey from beginning to where we are now and in turn wrote such a wonderful homily that completely made the ceremony. He handled every part of the process with such genuine care and empathy that by the end of the whole experience I gained a life long friend. I will never forget my big day and how Patrick made the whole experience seamless and completely stress free. I will be forever grateful for his talents as an officiant and his endearing warmth as a friend.

We were kinda bummed bc we didn’t t know of anyone that could marry us like all the other couples do these days ! Patrick married us at the Oviatt penthouse in los angeles and it was just so magical more than what I had hoped for . Patrick made everyone in the audience feel like he had known my husband and I for years !!!! Everyone loved him !!! We loved him !! we Have gone to other weddings before and the ceremonies were nothing like Patrick’s ! He’s funny kind and very amicable such as awesome all around guy . He was able to work with us very flexible when setting up our meetings . We spoke for over an hour and all my husband and I did was talk about our love ! He really wanted to know our love story so that when he stood in front of our loved ones he could project that lovestory to them . It’s an art and Patrick has mastered it . If you’re looking for an officiant look no further you’re in Excellent hands worth every penny !

Patrick was great! He made us feel very comfortable as we spent a few hours with him the night before the wedding, getting to know our story. He tailored the ceremony for us, even making revisions minutes before the ceremony. He was very professional and flexible, while providing the right amount if humor and sincerity to our amazing wedding day. We were very pleased. Thanks again, Patrick.
We worked with Patrick with Carmen & Brian all I can say Professional. Made the ceremony fun all while keeping it pro. I would recommend him to my clients for future services. Great job Patrick.
As a harpist, I watch a lot of people get married. Sometimes the officiants make or break the wedding. The first time I saw Patrick do a wedding, I knew he was born to do this. He's wonderful and caters to each couple. He is easy going but professional, and makes each wedding extremely touching without being sappy. If you are looking for an officiant, take it from someone who sees almost a wedding a week! He's your man!
