We could not have asked for a better marriage officiant than Steve! As we were standing there, ready to get married, he brought the story of our love to everyone that was present. The initial phone call with Steve was very pleasant as he asked many questions about our relationship. Steve was very easy to talk to and always available when we had any questions. We had a follow up phone call days before the wedding to ensure everything would go as planned. What we did not expect was the amount of effort Steve would put in his sermon. IT WAS AMAZING! It was my wife's favorite part of the wedding and mine too. Steve took our story and turned it into a beautiful ceremony of words while making people laugh and cry, as he promised. Steve's ceremony respected both sides of our family's faith, while delivering something that everyone would eventually love. We HIGHLY recommend Steve Whalen as your wedding officiant.

Seriously the best!
Steve was AMAZING! We were blown away by how personal he was able to make our ceremony, while being upbeat and light hearted! He took the humor my husband and I share and was able to bring it into our ceremony in the perfect way! I couldn’t imagine any one else performing out ceremony! So glad we found Steve! 10/10 would recommend!!

My husband and I didn't know where to start when looking for a officiant for our wedding, so we started with google and we are so so happy we came across Steve. We told him are a laid back, sarcastic, non-religious couple who is looking for someone who can bring laughter and tears during our ceremony and he did just that. He was understanding and easy to work with, made it personal and everyone loved him. Steve, we can't thank you enough for helping us have the ceremony of our dreams!

Steve did an amazing job at our wedding! He made it personal for us and kept the ceremony fun and light hearted. He also helped calm me down when I was nervous about the saying my vows. Our friends and family thought he was great too. I highly recommended Steve!!Sent on 06/02/2018

We looked online for a wedding officiant for quite a while and just weren't satisfied with what we were finding, until Steve. After reading the reviews and information about him, we decided to contact him to see if he was available in a pretty short timeframe (about a month). He was available so we made arrangements to meet. The meeting was great, he is very personable, and makes you feel comfortable. Our wedding was very small in our home, Steve was very professional and interjected just the right amount of humor! Our family enjoyed his company very much. We highly recommend Steve to be your officiant, you will not be disappointed.
David · Married on 03/17/2018
Showed up early, did a great job interviewing us for the ceremony proper. Serious when appropriate, humor when appropriate. Very Happy.

We contacted Steve (Water to Wine) and a few other officiants on WeddingWire, less than a week before our date which happened to be during the busy Holiday season. Steve was the only officiant to respond. He quickly agreed to perform our ceremony in our location. We communicated back and forth so he would have info about who we were and what kind of ceremony we wre hoping for. On the day, Steve arrived early. He was friendly, professional and knew exactly what
we were hoping our wedding would be. His ceremony encompassed our personalities, some relationship history and our requested desire for acknowledgement of Gods presence. Our wedding guests had nothing but wonderful comments, we couldn’t be happier and we would highly recommend Steve to others.

WE LOVE STEVE!!!
As soon as we met him we knew he was the perfect fit for our big day. He's a sweet, teddy bear of a man who is fun loving and professional. He handled our families with grace at the rehearsal and had our guests laughing up a storm the during the ceremony. Our guests later told us it was the best ceremony they had been to because of HIM. I could not recommend this man enough.
Alysha · Married on 09/24/2017
We were so pleased to have Steve as our officiant! He did such a great job for the ceremony itself and was very good with our families. He was very easy to communicate with and was able to attend the rehearsal dinner as well (we were in Ferndale and he was coming all the way from Snohomish!) which helped put our minds at ease for the big day. Steve was also very reasonable in pricing, which was an added blessing. Thank you Steve!
Anthony · Married on 09/15/2017
Steve was absolutely amazing, we had everything go well and I am very thankful for his services. He not only was able to make it a personal ceremony but he did a great job getting to know each of us and incorporating our personal story into his presentation. My wife and I know how much there is to do when you are planning a wedding. Do not let yourself stress out about one more thing. Hire Steve and I promise from an officiant stand point you will not have to worry!
Cheryl · Married on 08/21/2017
Steve did a great job officiating. He was well organized and helped us every step of the way. He made the ceremony very personable by adding in our chosen bible scriptures, and it was especially nice to have him say some of the ceremony in spanish for Daniel's family. I was extremely nervous walking down the aisle but Steve made me relax by having a few comical remarks. We both didn't want a crazy, serious ceremony, so I am glad that he did that to lighten the mood. I would definitely recommend Steve.
Kathy · Married on 08/16/2017
My family and I traveled form Michigan for our remarriage ceremony and everything had to be done through email and phone calls. In addition to being professional, knowledgeable, and full of humor, Steve was also very accommodating and willing to work with us to give us both exactly what we wanted our wedding ceremony to be. Additionally, he was willing to meet us at our rental home and perform the ceremony there, even though it meant a 45 mile trip for him. I would definitely recommend Steve to anyone who asks.
Haley · Married on 08/12/2017
Steve was very easy to work with and was so much fun! During our ceremony he had everyone laughing and everyone had such a great time. He made sure he was including everything we wanted into our ceremony. He was very responsive to messages and questions as well. We are so happy with the way everything turned out. Thank you Steve for making our day extra special and fun!
Rand · Married on 08/06/2017
Steve is very personable and easy to work with. We were really pleased with his ceremony and the extra work he went to put in an extra personal touch.
Rachelle · Married on 07/29/2017
Steve was absolutely amazing as an officiant and even more as a guide throughout this journey calming nerves, getting to know us and really making our ceremony feel all the extra special. We are so thankful and blessed to have found him and are forever grateful for his part in our special day!
Jennifer · Married on 07/15/2017
Steve was wonderful. From the first conversation I had with him I was comfortable with him. He made it all about my husband and I. He kept in touch even though I hired him about 6 months in advance. There was never any question about whether he would remember. Everything was great! Thank you so much.
Rachel · Married on 07/07/2017
Im so thankful we went with Steve to be our officiant. He was easy to communicate with, he made our ceremony short sweet and personal. Exactly what we wanted!!! Thank you!
Kiera · Married on 05/20/2017
Steve made our special day perfect! He was genuinely interested in our story as a couple and getting to know us to make our ceremony personalized and exactly what we wanted. He was nice, welcoming, and professional! He was very responsive to our questions and was great about confirming all the details beforehand. He showed up early to our rehearsal and wedding and came prepared and ready to lead. (He even brought gifts for the ring bearer and flower girl!) The ceremony was exactly what we had hoped for and we are so happy we found Steve! We would recommend him over and over again - he's the best!
Katie · Married on 04/15/2017
We cannot say enough good things about Steve officiating our wedding, he was great! The initial meeting was great, and even just meeting for coffee we felt like we already knew him. He is super helpful since we planned the wedding ourselves and weren't sure ceremony wise what we wanted. Very communicative and always had samples to show us. We had a smaller venue and most attendees stood for the , so we wanted a quick sweet ceremony and Steve did awesome! It was very sweet, and although short, everyone was in tears as well as laughing by the end. I would absolutely recommend him as an officiant, we loved having him there!
