From the very first time I spoke to Rev. Arlene on the phone, I knew she would be a wonderful officiant to perform our ceremony. She helped us to compose a ceremony that reflected my husband and me; she included her own heartfelt dialogue and blessings and we were able to insert some of our own sentiments. We are so happy with how our wedding ceremony was performed - out of all the happenings on our wedding day, the ceremony was our favorite part! Even our guests keep telling us how much they loved our ceremony and how personal it was. Arlene is attentive and flexible and always has a smile on her face. She brought such joy to our wedding day and she was one of the important parts of our day we will never forget!

Rev. Arlene was great! Picking an officiant was the most difficult part of the wedding ceremony, because we didn’t know where to start. We’re so happy we came across Rev. Arlene online. She was kind and professional. She led us through the process and made the ceremony personal without us having to work too hard. All of our guests commented on how great our ceremony was and we had a lot of them crying! Thank you so much Rev. Arlene!

Rev. Arlene was awesome! She took the time to get to know my now Husband and I and made sure our ceremony was customized exactly to our liking. She made it as painless as possible.

Reverend Arlene took our stories and words and masterfully composed a beautiful ceremony. She helped us share our love with our families and friends. We had multiple people tell us how amazing the ceremony was and how there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd.

Arlene was exactly what we wanted for our wedding! She made our wedding very personal and is a very kind and easy person to work with. We are glad she was able to be a part of our big day and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a beautiful ceremony.

The ceremony is a very important part of a wedding so our expectations were high and Rev. Arlene & Rev. Paul were able to exceed it. They were simply easy and fun to work with from the first day my husband and I met them. Rev. Arlene put together a beautiful reading and Rev. Paul conducted it with such sincerity and love. I highly recommend them and their services.

We originally booked Arlene for our wedding ceremony within her area of business. After we changed our location outside of Los Angeles county, she made an effort to work with us and travel to our new location. She charged a reasonable travel fee and was great on the day of. All of our guests complimented her. We couldn't be happier with our choice.

The bride had a very rough morning on her wedding day, with a bit of pink eye, and thinking that she would not look good in her pictures and almost wanting to cancel the wedding. When Rev Arlene Goldman arrived, she spoke to the young couple in the makeup room, telling the bride that this was ‘not a day to be upset’ but a ‘day of love’ (and many other things like that). Her voice, her words and her mannerisms were just what the doctor ordered!! Not to mention her Service... it was just Beeeeeeeautiful. I would certainly recommend her!

Arlene was fantastic! The morning before the wedding was hectic and stressful and Arlene helped keep everyone calm. Arlene's ceremony exceeded expectations and was incredibly thoughtful and special.
Laurent · Married on 05/05/2017
Rev. Arlene Goldman was THE BEST. After months of being ok and wanting to say "I DO", we actually planned everything less than a week before THE date. I contacted Rev. Arlene when she was actually travelling, she answered very kindly and we organized everything over a lot of emails as she was away. She was arriving the same morning we did married! We had the best spiritual ceremony, she was right on what we whished. A beautiful soul, do not hesitate to contact her with any doubt or question. G&L

Rev. Arlene was an absolute gem of a find! Her patience with us as we scrambled to handle other wedding pieces, along with her willingness to help us every step of the way, was just beyond! Our first meeting was online since we were in a different state at the time - she even downloaded a new app that we were using for video chat so that we could make the meeting happen. From that meeting we knew she would be the perfect officiant to marry us. Then we asked to meet in person and of course she agreed. In that meeting she really highlighted the importance of that day, the meaning behind it all, and really got to know us and our story. We filled out a couple questionnaires on our own time that dug deeper into how we met and the love between us, and and she incorporated all of those memories into our wedding! When we were a little lost in to how to even write vows, she provided tons of examples! Also, just hours before the wedding when I realized I didn't have my vows printed out, I called her and she showed up with my vows on sheets of paper in a way that would be easy for me to read! Talk about someone who is seriously by your side every step of the way! The wedding was absolutely magnificent! Our guests are still gushing about how they've never been to a more beautiful, romantic and love-filled ceremony. They said the energy was incredible, like out of a fairytale, and that they were all tearing up with how beautiful it was. Rev Arlene, you made this day a day we will never forget. Thank you for your graceful words and your huge heart. You will forever live in ours :)

Rev. Arlene Goldman was fantastic to work with. Leading up to the wedding, Arlene was quick to answer any questions that I had and was very helpful in guiding us through the process. She sent many examples of vow readings and ceremony traditions, and surveyed us to get a feel for our relationship and the type of ceremony we envisioned. She created a beautiful ceremony script and even was nice enough to further customize it with some additional personal touches that I wanted to add. She was incredibly sweet, kind, and very professional. We received so many compliments about Arlene and how personal, loving, and beautiful our ceremony was. We can not thank Arlene enough for creating the perfect start to our amazing day!

Do not hesitate, she was so helpful and accommodating front start to finish. She is such an engaging person and the ceremony she provided was so intimate and personal, exactly what we had hoped for.
Karina · Married on 07/03/2016
Rev. Arlene Goldman was a pleasure to work with! She was very responsive, helpful and professional. She created a beautiful ceremony that was personalized and heartfelt; just what we wanted. Our guests truly enjoyed it and we couldn't be any happier with our decision to have chosen her for this very special day!
Melissa · Married on 06/18/2016
Rev. Arlene Goldman made our wedding day so special, and one that we will never forget! She was such a pleasure in each and every one of our interactions, and we truly enjoyed speaking with her and planning our wedding ceremony together. We loved our ceremony and the fact that we were able to customize parts of it, including a special sand ceremony, several readings, and the story of how my husband and I met. She went above and beyond to assist us with details such as how to obtain our marriage license, which we very much appreciated during the busy planning! She is so sweet and we want to thank her so much for making our wedding day just perfect!
Andrea · Married on 05/21/2016
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Arlene! From the very beginning I felt very comfortable around her which made me a lot less nervous during our actual ceremony. Arlene wrote out the perfect ceremony for us and made sure it was one that we were comfortable as well, she really does have a way with words and doesn't write anything cheesy. We both also really appreciated how responsive and helpful Arlene was in regards to putting everything together and also on the big day. Your search is over for the perfect officiant! If you don't contract Arlene you'll be missing out!
