OMG- Ken was fantastic! You will seriously regret not hiring this man as your officiant on one of the best days of your life. Guests at the wedding messaged me saying how beautiful the ceremony was and how that was their favorite part. He makes you feel so comfortable up there and says all the right things.. Had a beautiful speech about love and had made it seem like he really knew us as a couple. The audience laughed and cried. THANK YOU SO MUCH, KEN!
It was really fun getting to know you and Amir. What a funny guy - and tall guy:) You guys were so relaxed it was awesome and you two made it really easy. I don't think I have ever done a wedding where there was applause for each member of the wedding party - that was really cool. Thank you so much for thinking of Socal Vows. It was a blast being part of your special day:)
Coming from Orlando, Florida to visit Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, California was already the best vacation and celebration, our officiant Ken did a phenomenal job making the process breezy like the day of our wedding. I'm so impressed of Ken's questions, evaluations, and overall genuine care for our special day. He handled our relationship with the utmost respect, and made us all feel welcomed. Best choice for the beginning of the rest of our lives!
What a great day we had on Saturday. Beautiful day, beautiful location on Sunset Cliffs, and it was great connecting with your family! Steven was really good about checking in on all the details. He wanted it to be just perfect for you, and he nailed it:) Thank you again for thinking of Socal Vows to officiate your wedding!
Deciding to have Ken as our officiant was one of the best choices we made as we planned our wedding! We really had no idea where to start looking for an officiant, and spent a long time trying to find someone, talking to various people. Ken made us feel comfortable right from the start. He was available for questions or a chat anytime we needed it, we were able to totally personalize our ceremony and vows (he also offered advice for this), and he even did our premarital counseling. He is a calming presence and is just so pleasant to work with. On our wedding day, our ceremony was just incredible. The absolute best part of an all-around wonderful day. Our guests won't stop talking about just how beautiful and meaningful the ceremony was, so many have said it was the best they have ever seen. Everyone wants to know how we met Ken -- they thought we'd known him for a long time! He infused the ceremony with meaning (and a little humor, too). It was perfect.
Ken did an amazing job for us. We highly recommend him. He made our day very special. Coached us through all the steps.
Mark Murphy was an amazing officiant. He was on top of everything from day one and we appreciated the good communication. Even though we didn’t meet him before our wedding, he made sure to make the ceremony personable and made us feel like he put time into personalizing our ceremony. We asked that he kept it short and sweet and he did just that. All of our guests even commented on how perfect the timing of everything was. He was quick to take care of the paperwork as well. We are very happy with all the services he provided us. Thank you Mark!
Jordan, it was my honor to be a part of your big day. The Alcazar Garden was the perfect setting for your intimate group of friends and family. Thank you for inviting me into your group picture. It would be lovely if I could get a digital copy of that!
I wish you and Nate a long, happy and healthy life together
Ken was a great officiant. He sends helpful emails to remind you of things you may need and information to help you with getting ready for your ceremony. He was very pleasant to work with and was awesome at our ceremony. I would recommend him for anyone’s wedding.
Thank you Denette for the kind words:) It was awesome to be part of your special day with both you and Xavier... he is a pretty funny guy:) Again, thank you for thinking of Socal Vows for your wedding.
SoCal Vows was amazing to me and my husband. They made the experience so personal and even mentioned cute little sayings in our ceremony! I would recommend SoCal Vows to anyone!
We had Pastor Ken Hudson through Socal Vows and he was great! He made everything as easy as possible and even lightened the mood knowing that we were so nervous about being in front of the crowd. He walked us through the whole process from start to finish and even gave pointers on certain parts of the ceremony that we could use or not as we felt proper. We highly recommend Socal Vows and Pastor Ken Hudson!
Hey Jeremy and Krissy, thanks for the 5 star review, much appreciated. Great couples like you make my job so much easier so, let me wish you all the best! Pastor Ken
We hired Mark Murphy from SoCal Vows to officiate our winter wedding and we are SO glad that we did. Mark did an excellent job at officiating our wedding, everything he said was perfect. We had people coming up to us after our wedding saying how wonderful it was and that the officiant was amazing. Mark was on time and very responsive to emails and responding to any questions we had. We just received our wedding video and love Mark even more! Everything we said and how he said it was on point. He was not cheesy and honestly the perfect fit for our simple, bohemian wedding.
It was my pleasure to be a part of your day. I wish you nothing but the best as you build your life together. May your love and your olive tree grow for a lifetime. Thank you for using Socal Vows for your wedding.
Ken did an excellent job officiating our wedding. He made the ceremony very personal even though we didn't know him long. The photos his photographer took were excellent as well. He talked me out of picking Sunset Cliffs and to go with Windandsea (both San Diego sites) instead, which me and my wife later agreed was definitely the best choice. He was super friendly and accommodating throughout the whole process before and during the wedding.
Hey Chris... what a great wedding in La Jolla. What a cold wedding:) Rachel was smart wearing the jacket. It was a beautiful ceremony and it was great getting to talk with your parents and friends. The photos did come out really well too. Thank you for thinking of Socal Vows for both your officiant and photographer:) Blessings to you both!!
Ken was fantastic! He was punctual, sincere, and a very genuine person who did a wonderful job at our wedding and we highly recommend him!
Ken was referred to us through our wedding venue, he was one of two choices . Did a little research on him and we decided to go with Ken. I have to say i was beyond impressed. Immediately after booking him he contacted us within days, he gathered some information on my then fiance and I and every couple weeks checked in on us to see if we needed any guidance , help , questions, anything you can think of Ken provided the answers without even asking. He was so incredibly nice and professional. Based on the information he gathered from us early on, he personalized our ceremony PERFECTLY!!!! I have to say that through-out the entire wedding planning and process Ken was one I completely put all my trust in, he made the ceremony planning completely stress free!! From beginning to end he handled it all. Our wedding was almost 3 weeks ago and I am still getting compliments on Ken. If your looking for an officiant BOOK HIM!!! He will meet all your expectations and beyond. We were truly blessed to have him and you will too!!
Hi Norma - thank you for much for the kind words and taking the time to give me a review. It was a pleasure getting to know you and Jordan and your son Andrew. What a great kid!! You did an awesome job with him:) That was a beautiful evening and you two are a great couple that have great chemistry. Thank you for thinking of Socal Vows for your wedding ceremony.
Ken did an absolute amazing officiating our wedding! We had a hiccup on our day and our ceremony stared an hour later than expected. Even with the time crunch Ken assured our guests beforehand and pulled through our ceremony flawlessly. He is professional, patient, funny and an absolute delight. You will not be let down!
Thank you Krista. It was great getting to know Arturo and his friends. Even though we got a late start I think that everybody loved it and it was worth the wait:) Thank you again for thinking of Socal Vows to help officiate your wedding.
Ken did an amazing job officiating our wedding in Novemver 2017! I highly recommend him! He was professional, easy going, and even though we had only met him once over a skype session prior to our wedding he made our ceremony very heartfelt and included all of the details we mentioned to him making it seem like we had known him for years!
Hi Danielle... is was awesome being part of your ceremony. Luke is a great guy and you are awesome which make you two and awesome couple! It really so much fun connecting with your friends and families as well. Thank you for thinking of Socal Vows for your special day:)
Leading up to our wedding Ken sent helpful emails/reminders and quickly responded to any inquires we had, including last minute additions to our ceremony. Our ceremony was short and sweet, but he made it so heartfelt, memorable, and personalized… just the way we envisioned it. Our guests highly praised our ceremony and loved Ken. We would highly recommend SoCal Vows to anyone planning their perfect wedding day.
It was so fun being part of your ceremony with Stoney. Mt Woodson Castle is beautiful and Stoney was a pretty funny guy to hang around:) Very nice ceremony for sure... great job!! Thank you again for thinking of Socal Vows for your wedding.
Ken is awesome. Do not use anyone else. Our guests complimented on our service, that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to.
He is personable, he is very helpful all the way from start to finish. Our ceremony was intimate as well as humerous. I couldnt have been happier.
Thank you Ken for making our wedding ceremony so unique and a day we will never forget.
Pastor Ken was AMAZING!!! Prior to our wedding he sent the most helpful emails/reminders and quickly responded to any inquires I had. On wedding day, he was this calming force for both myself and my husband. Our ceremony was short, but Ken made it so heartfelt, memorable, and personalized. In fact, our guests thought that we knew Ken for years based on how personalized our ceremony was! Throughout the night, we received so many compliments about Pastor Ken from our guests. If you need an officiant for your wedding, stop looking and just hire this man! You will not be disappointed!
Hi Renee... it was such a pleasure being part of your ceremony. You two have a very special relationship and it shows... I loved it when Mitch got down on a knee to put the ring on... very classy:) Thank you so much for thinking of Socal Vows to help you with your special day!
Ken quickly responded to all of my questions during the planning process and performed a beautiful ceremony for us the day of the wedding.
Hi Jessica... it was great working with you and Tommy for your ceremony. I was surprised how well the kids did up front. They were great! Thank you again for thinking of Socal Vows for your ceremony.
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Pastor Ken officiate our wedding ceremony. It was our "public ceremony" as we were legally married almost a full year before we were able to have a traditional wedding with reception (#militaryproblems). Ken made the entire process easy! We were unexpectedly moved out of state four months before the wedding and Ken was timely with his emails and responses. Even with meeting him about five minutes before the ceremony started, he did a great job and incorporated details from our email conversations into the ceremony. He was completely flexible with allowing me to have two readers and mentioning important family members whom were with us in spirit. Thank you Ken and SoCal vows!
Ken, thank you so much for the beautiful wedding ceremony. There was no dry eye!
I will definitely recommend you to my family and friends!
It was so great getting to know you and Wayne and being part of your ceremony. It was awesome to be the first wedding at that Julian venue too:) Thank you again for letting Socal Vows be part of your special day!!
Our experience with So Cal Vows was absolutely wonderful! It was very quick and easy to book their services. We had the great pleasure of working with Pastor Ken Hudson. His response time was less than 24 hours. Pastor Ken met with us in person and corresponded via email to help create our perfect wedding ceremony. In addition to this he has gone above and beyond by continuing to check in on us after our wedding and sending extremely helpful tools on all things that must occur after your big day (the hassle of changing your last name). We cannot thank Pastor Ken and So Cal Vows enough for being a part of our special day!
Hey Natalie, it was my pleasure being part of your special day. I hope you and Michael are getting settled in to married life, he is a great guy. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you and again congratulations! Thank you again for thinking of Socal Vows.
Mark Murphy married my husband and I on October 28th 2017. In all honesty he did a fabulous job! He was interested in our story, and told it to our family in a manner that was funny and sweet. His presence was cheerful and he had a great sense of humor. He was also very professional and timely. We couldn't have been luckier to find such an incredible officiant who made our wedding ceremony memorable and special. Thank you Mark! - Martinez family
Thank you for the kind words Jasmine. It was my pleasure meeting you, Cristian and your families. I wish you the best in your new life together. Thank you for choosing Socal Vows to be part of your special day:)
Ken was great!! He was there to answer all of my questions and accommodate my special day! Could not asked for anything else any other way!
Thank you Erica for letting Socal Vows be part of your big day. You two looked great in your white dress and white tux! I sent Pat your email address so you should be getting your pictures in the next couple of days. Thank you for choosing Socal Vows for your officiating as well as your photography!
Ken did a wonderful job officiating our wedding! He was very accommodating to what we wanted and really listened to what was important to us!
Please hire Ken as your officiant you will not be disappointed! He truly was able to capture the love and story of my husband and I. Everyone commented on how touching the ceremony was, I would also recommend adding rehearsal to your package Ken was awesome at coordinating the ceremony and was able to take on my large wedding party! If I would definitely rate him more than 5 stars, thanks for making wedding so memorable!
Thank you Michelle. I had such a great weekend hanging with you and Angel for the rehearsal on Friday and the wedding on Saturday. After the rehearsal I was hoping that it would not be too cold, and Saturday turned out to be a perfect day! I was at a wedding earlier that day where everything went wrong... it was great to see your wedding when everything went right! Thank you again for choosing Socal Vows!
