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!
Ken was a very excellent officiant. His communication leading up to the ceremony was fantastic. He was punctual and gave our family and friends a good laugh. Thank you for everything!

Ken was. Absolutely amazing. He was extremely flexible with our dates and times we even tried to change them short notice and he was totally willing to compromise and meet us where we need absolutely amazing. He was extremely flexible with our dates and times we even tried to change them short notice and he was totally willing to compromise and meet us where we needed. We planned our wedding in just a little over three weeks so as you can imagine there was a lot of changes that happened! He was absolutely accommodating to each and every one. I really enjoyed his style and approach! So friendly from the get go and just amazing to work with. Would HIGHLY reccommend!!!
Ken was absolutely wonderful to work with! We got married on 4-28-18 and have nothing but amazing things to say about Ken! I was a little nervous at first to hire an officiant as I was afraid of the ceremony not seeming genuine because we had never met before. Ken asked us questions about us as a couple, our favorite things about each other and also helped us draft vows and unity ceremony. He constantly checked in with us throughout our engagement and was also extremely quick to reply back to any questions or concerns. When I arrived at the altar, I felt like I knew Ken my whole life. The ceremony was incredible with emotional moments and funny remarks mixed in. I highly recommend Ken to anyone looking for an incredibly reliable and affordable officiant. Thank you, Ken!
Thank you for all the kind words Lina... what a fairy tale wedding you had. Entering in a carriage pulled by horses was awesome!! You could tell Bryce was nervous too, but you guys did great!! Thank you again for using Socal Vows to be part of your special day!
Ken was a great officiant for our wedding. My husband is Catholic and I am a Non-Demoninational Christian. Ken helped us add scripture into our wedding and tell a little bit of our story. He also gave us options to choose from for our wedding vows and exchanging of rings that we felt fit us best. He was easy to get ahold of and was great with follow up. I would recommend him to any of our family and friends. Thank you Ken for helping make our day very memorable!
Ken was awesome! It's amazing what he did with just a couple of emails back and forth. He was able to take all of our words and ideas and transformed them into delivery that was full of wit and humor. He answered any and all questions we had with such ease and compassion. Both my husband and I, along with all of our guests, found his delivery far better than just exceptional. We had no idea what to expect but he made the process so easy and comfortable.
Thank you Ken! You did an amazing job.
Jose and Monica Carranza
Thank you so much for the kind words Monica! It was great getting to know you and Jose and helping you two make your day special. You two have a special bond and I was glad to be part of your ceremony. Thank you again for choosing 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.
Ken did an amazing job on our ceremony ! I was quite the anxious person even though our wedding was small and had a lot of questions . Ken answered promptly and efficiently with all my concerns . The day of Ken made everything run smoothly and beautifully !!
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 Hoelscher was great to work with and helped make our day fun and special. Ken took the time to get to know us and worked the info into giving a personalized ceremony that was both very touching as well as occiasionally humurous and entertaining. Ken did a great job meeting and exceeding our expectations. We would certainly reccomend him to anyone getting ready to take the plunge!
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.
Pastor Ken made our intimate wedding ceremony special with his warmth and personal touch. Leading to our big day, Ken was very responsive. He send us an email 2 months, 1 month and 1 week prior to the wedding to walk us through every detail of the ceremony, including when to get our marriage license. With minimal information of our relationship and engagement day, Ken performed a very personal ceremony. I can’t refer Ken enough for our special day. He even mailed the marriage certificate, post ceremony. The next day, we got an email congratulating us again on our nuptials and send me a link to change my last name. We can’t thank Ken enough for making our big day one we will never forget.
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!
