When my girlfriend and I decided to tie the knot, we knew we wanted to do it in CA near the ocean and that we wanted it to be a private, intimate ceremony with just the two of us and an officiant. I won't say we are picky, but we are, and the perfect person was a must! Since we live outside CA, we went to the internet and searched for an officiant. We moved quickly through a couple of choices since they had no personality and we just did not feel it. Then we found David. We thought just from his website that he would be a good fit. After some text and email communication, we scheduled a face time call. We spent an hour on the phone with David getting to know each other. He was just so perfect. He was sweet, interested in hearing our story, demonstrated attention to detail, he had an appreciation for romance, and was just plain adorable!
Our vision was a private ceremony on the beach in jeans and flip flops. David was up for it and even color coordinated with us:)
The day of the ceremony was just amazing. We could not have been happier! David climbed up quite a hill for us to the bluff above our beautiful ocean view. He even toted a 40 pound battery in order to video record our special moment. When we discussed who would go first with the vows, we decided rock, paper, scissors was the way to decide. Then we went to it. The ceremony was simply beautiful and amazing. David truly seemed invested in our love. His smile and kindness really made a difference for us. David also provided our vows for us on these beautiful cards that we have as mementos. David respected our privacy and did everything right to make our special day amazing. He is the kind of person you want to share a bottle of wine with outside your ceremony. He feels like a friend and that is really special for something like this. After the ceremony was said and done, David did share some champagne and donuts with us:) We are so very grateful to David and will never forget our wedding day where everything was perfect! We cannot say enough to recommend him to everyone. Thank you David for making our day amazing!

My husband and I got married at Mount Palomar Winery, which lists David Cutler as one of their preferred vendors--and after going through this whole wedding process I can totally attest to why that is! David is not only very responsive and professional, he is also super friendly and easy to get along with. I was surprised by how much I felt comfortable sharing about our relationship as he was getting to know us, but that's the kind of person David is! He asked us very thoughtful questions and made sure we were happy with everything in advance. On the day of the wedding, his appearance and his delivery was impeccable and the ceremony itself was beautiful and heartfelt. I highly recommend him as an officiant; we are so incredibly grateful to him!

My now husband and I loved having David as our officiant! He took the time to get to know us leading up to our wedding to make sure his dialogue during our ceremony matched up to our relationship and was tailored to us. He has a light-hearted and friendly personality which was perfect for our ceremony and made us feel very comfortable as well as made our guests laugh. He gave us great examples and advice for writing our own vows too. Highly recommend David!

David was absolutely amazing! We met him about a year before our wedding and immediately clicked with him. He is so personable and makes you feel like you’ve known each other for years after only talking to him once. We took his pre marital counseling course and I can’t emphasize enough how amazing that was! He really brings up questions and topics that you have never thought to discuss with your fiancé before. He is so knowledgeable about what makes a marriage work and has so much advice to give in multiple areas. Family background, finances, planning for the future, etc. He really makes you think about all of these things and become closer as a couple for it. Fast forward to planning our ceremony. David spent a lot of time getting to know us separate from what he learned about us in the counseling course. Asking how we met, what makes us work as a couple, etc. From there we worked on the personal details of our ceremony, how we wanted it to go, what vibe we wanted etc. We decided to do a love letter box as part of our ceremony and David knew just how to do it. We didn’t read or hear the ceremony script beforehand but we never felt like we needed to. We had so much faith and trust in him that we knew it would be amazing. On rehearsal day he ran through the whole thing with us as many times as we needed. He knew exactly what he was doing because he has plenty of experience. He kept our bridal party in line, taught them how to walk down, line up, etc. He even spent time with my maid of honor and taught her how to fluff my train and would hold my bouquet while she did so. He has the best tips and made everyone feel at ease and laugh while at our rehearsal. On wedding day our ceremony was beyond incredible. I don’t even know how many compliments I got on our ceremony, but it was definitely a lot! Everyone absolutely loved David and our ceremony! Definitely hire him, you won’t regret it! Thank you so much David for such an amazing ceremony!

David was the first and only officiant that my (now) husband and I met with before our wedding. I had messaged several others with a few questions, and I just loved that David messaged me back in a timely manor, and that he actually wanted to meet us before trying to jump the gun & book him. We had a couple of meetings in which he got to know us, and we really felt like we were talking to a long time friend at the end of these meetings. He had some GREAT insight to what would look good during our ceremony, as well as some things that we could add into it to make it stand out from the regular run of the mill wedding ceremonies. He is VERY professional, but he was also able to add some humor into our ceremony which is just our style. :) He was also very timely in responding to emails, giving us information on how to apply for our marriage license, and then sending it off to be recorded as well.
Thank you so much David for being a part of our special day!

There are no words that can fully explain how amazing David is! He made us feel so comfortable the moment we met him. We knew right away that we had to have him as our officiant. He really took the time to get to know us, our story, and our overall relationship. The ceremony was beyond our expectations. The details and small touches he put into the ceremony were just so beautiful....and funny! He even created a gmail account for our cats (who are our babies) and made a joke about how they emailed him before the wedding. So cute and so funny. Loved that! I can go on and on about David....bottom line is that our wedding would not have been the same without him!
Nikki · Married on 05/19/2018
My wedding would never have been the same without David as our officiant. He captured us and our relationship perfectly during the ceremony and even when we had a minor mishap with the rings David knew just what to say. Prior to the ceremony he took the time to get to know us and even attended our rehearsal. We cannot thank him enough for helping create our perfect happily ever after!
Kayla · Married on 04/22/2018
David was amazing! Our ceremony was beautiful we loved exactly what he said and he even threw a little humor in there that we are still laughing about when we think back on it. His personality is awesome we loved meeting with him and going over our love story with him. We highly recommend him he will make your ceremony unforgettable!
Kari · Married on 04/21/2018
Working with David was an absolute pleasure! We found David through our venue and after speaking with him the first time we knew right away he was the perfect officiant for us. David took his time to get to know my husband and I very well and took it upon himself (which we asked) to write the perfect ceremony & vows for us! David is amazingly professional but still makes you feel comfortable when opening up to him! We felt as if we knew David for years after having a 1 hour conversation. I would HIGHLY recommend David!!
Amy · Married on 03/31/2018
Our venue recommended David and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! My husband and I are not local and he worked with us via Skype & email during most of the process. When we were finally able to meet with him in person, he was professional, but also personable. He really got to know us as a couple and that showed through at our ceremony. I never once stressed or worried about our ceremony and I know I have David to thank for that. He was organized and on top of everything. I HIGHLY recommend Your Perfect Ceremony! Honestly, I believe it'll be the easiest decision you make during the wedding planning process. Thank you David for being so amazing at what you do!
Monica · Married on 03/17/2018
Our first call with David, I knew we had found the right officiant for our March 17, 2018 wedding.
My husband and I were looking for an officiant who matched our nonreligious but spiritual values and he proved to be perfect for us.
Warm, professional and well organized, David guided us through a variety of ceremonial style choices.
His questions were thoughtful and explored the story behind the love that brought me and my husband together.
The day of our wedding David was calm and kept us present and in the moment.
We highly recommend David. From our first meeting to David filing our marriage license, he was impeccable at every step.
We are grateful he was a part of our journey as husband and wife!
Thank you Dave!

We cannot say enough good things about David and neither could our guests. He crafted such a beautiful and personal ceremony for us. Throughout the planning process, David gave us great ideas and options for us to include in our ceremony to really make it unique. He was so wonderful to work with and made our ceremony so special. We cannot thank you enough David. We would have David officiate over and over again in a heartbeat!!
Jennifer · Married on 03/03/2018
I can't say enough amazing things about David! From the moment we both spoke with him, we immediately knew he would be absolutely perfect to officiate our wedding. David is so easy to talk to; you'll feel like you've known him for years after the first 5 minutes! He is a true professional at what he does. All of our guests were raving about him, saying he made the ceremony absolutely perfect. I felt so safe and comfortable knowing he was running the whole show. Even my wedding coordinator wanted David's information to work with him in the future because he loved all of David's ideas. He is extremely thoughtful and really takes the time to get to know you so he can make your day perfect. I would definitely recommend David to anyone getting married he is so wonderful! Thank you so much David for the most perfect wedding ever! You are truly the best in the business!!!
Shane · Married on 10/07/2017
Oh my goodness! Where do I begin. Our venue recommended David, and we couldn't be more happy that they did. He made our day UNFORGETTABLE. All of our guests came up to us during our reception and commented on how great he was. He added humor where humor was to be added and spoke with such love. He was able to talk about us and our relationship on such a personal level, having only met us once through an hour Skype interview and then at our rehearsal.
He proofread our vows (which my husband and I kept a secret from each other) to make sure they had the same tone and were the same length. He even wore a suit and tie that matched our wedding colors perfectly. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you for being apart of our special day David!
Megan · Married on 09/10/2017
After reading reviews online, we knew we wanted David to perform our ceremony. This feeling only increased as we had our first Skype session with him and then our face-to-face a few months later. Within the first few minutes, we felt an instant connection with him and it seemed as if we had been friends for years. Working with him was an absolute joy. He is extremely professional, detail-oriented, thoughtful, and timely. He responded to any inquiries I had within hours and went the extra mile to provide audio and music for us when our venue was unable to. He took the time to truly get to know us which showed in the ceremony. I expected it to be amazing just on our meeting with him but I was absolutely blown away by how perfect it was. He even surprised us by incorporating a prop of our favorite hockey team (which my fiance and I had initially formed our bond over) and gave us many laughs throughout - something we so appreciate. After the wedding I was approached by every single guest telling me how wonderful our wedding was but the main thing they wanted me to know was how perfect our minister was - how he absolutely nailed us and our personalities and made it the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to. I couldn't agree more (though maybe I'm a bit biased). He also was able to join us for our reception and led us in a prayer and toast, two things we asked of him that was not required, but he happily jumped in and did. We could not be more grateful to him. After the wedding, he was so prompt in getting our license filed and getting us all the information we needed. It was completely hassle and worry-free which is extremely nice since we could just forget about that and not worry. If you're getting married in the Temecula area, I urge you to have David perform your ceremony. You will not regret it.
Kathryn · Married on 09/02/2017
David made our wedding absolutely magical. He spent so much time talking to us and getting to know the special things that are so important in our relationship that he was able to present a personal and heart felt ceremony for us and our guests. Every one of my family and friends mentioned how sweet and perfect the ceremony was and how it reflected us as a couple. They kept asking us how long we had known David and were so surprised finding out we had just found him online and he wasn't a long-time family friend!!
If you want an officiant to take the time to know you and create the perfect ceremony for you and your partner, look no further than David Cutler. 5 Stars, 10/10 - Thank you for making our wedding so wonderful!
Love, The Newlywed Beckers
Amanda · Married on 08/12/2017
David went above and beyond multiple times over to make sure our special day went perfectly! From our very first meet/greet meeting where he asked all the right questions and truly got to know us, to becoming my last minute wedding coordinator at the rehearsal, (who knew I needed a coordinator?! Haha) to answering every little question I would email him, the preparation he put into this day was so great and we cannot thank him enough. He was so attentive to our customized wishlist and really put the effort into making every single wish happen for us! The day-of was magical, and the words he chose for our ceremony brought many people to tears, including myself. If any of my friends or family need a recommendation for an officiant, David is who I will be recommending! Overly helpful, timely, responsive, and caring are all qualities that David displays. You can tell he truly loves his work! Thank you David!!!
Stacy · Married on 07/15/2017
Dave is amazing! He took the time to get to know us and customized our ceremony to fit us. He even worked with our vendors to ensure our wedding was perfect. Thanks Dave! We are so glad you were a part of our special day!
Melinda · Married on 07/09/2017
David was by far the best decision we made for our wedding!!! I cannot say enough great things about him. He did such a fantastic job!!!! Every single person that attended our wedding told me how amazing he was. He found the perfect balance between sincerity and humor. David not only listened to and incorporated my ideas, he took them one step further to make the ceremony unbelievably perfect!!! He had great advice, and truly poured his heart and soul into our wedding. He even matched our colors!!! I am so extremely thankful for David and all of the hard work he put into our ceremony. If you are looking for an officiant, look no further! You will never find someone better than David!!! He is a bride's dream come true!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you David!!!
Victoria · Married on 07/07/2017
Where to start?! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
We are ever so grateful and feel incredibly blessed to have you officiate our wedding on July 7th.
The ceremony was perfectly done, and it truly felt as if you known us forever! You were very easy to talk to and always available.
You created the exact mood that we were looking for, sharing stories, prayer and great advice (I will not forget the "upper hand" anytime soon).
We cannot speak highly enough of you or of our experience.
Thank you for everything!
Lori · Married on 07/03/2017
We’re from Maui and planned our Temecula wedding long distance. Our wedding coordinator gave us a few choices for an officiant and we were blessed to have made the perfect choice. Initially, our choice was made because David was able to provide music as well as officiate our ceremony, but we received so much more with David Cutler. David not only incorporated our personalized playlists for our wedding day, but he personalized our whole experience. We both felt an easy connection with David from our initial meeting over Facebook. We casually chatted about the beginnings of our relationship, how it’s grown, our life as a couple. He was sincerely interested and seemed excited and happy to work with us. David personalized our wedding ceremony with these details. He welcomed our adult children to our important new beginning as a married couple with validation of our relationship. He was flexible in working with us, honoring our wishes for a family unity ceremony involving weaving a lei which he hadn’t done before. Truly, he helped us create a personalized, meaningful wedding day. He paid attention to little details like color coordinating his tie and decorating our vow cards. David also had an ease in collaborating with our wedding coordinator and photographers. He was a key player in helping our wedding day really come together. David consistently responded to our emails and followed through with the paper work requirements of getting married. He was very reliable and communicative and we appreciated that a lot, especially because we were doing all our planning long distance. We highly recommend David Cutler. We were blessed to have him.

David was absolutely amazing. He is a little higher priced than most other officiants we talked to but it was worth it. He was personable and friendly, he got people to focus on the ceremony but did not try to make it all about him. He made the announcements at the beginning of the ceremony that we asked him to and made some ADORABLE vow cards for us that I want to frame and hang in our home. He did such an amazing job we could not be happier. I highly recommend him to any bride!
RJ · Married on 06/24/2017
This review is long over due.
David married my wife and I in June 2017 in Temecula, CA. Our overall experience with him was absolutely amazing. He was professional, friendly and kind. He is definitely passionate about what he does and does it amazingly well.
Before the Ceremony:
First off, my wife and I are located in the bay area and had to work with David remotely. He was very responsive via email and phone, and our skype sessions with him were very helpful, fun and time well spent. In addition, he had my wife and I do some homework, specifically filling out important questions about each other. He really took time to get to know us and used the information we shared with him for the ceremony.
David was at the rehearsal on time. Kept the entire rehearsal organized and efficient. On the day of the wedding, he was at the venue early and the ceremony was amazing. With the information he gathered from our interviews he told the story of our relationship just like we wanted. The ceremony had lots of laughs, love and emotion. He did a great job not making it too serious or too funny. He incorporated so many meaningful aspects of our relationship especially our basketball rivalry (Warriors vs. Lakers - Go Lakers!) which really made it fun for us and those who attended. In addition, he provides nice printed cards with our vows for us to read and for a keepsake. Overall, the ceremony was everything we wanted and David really listens and tailors the ceremony to what you truly want it to be.
David filed our license in a timely manner and was very thankful to have shared our special day with us. We are so thankful we chose him as our officiant.
David was amazing and we highly recommend him!!
Noriko · Married on 05/28/2017
David came recommended by our coordinator at the venue and we were so happy that we listen to her, because he is awesome. We met him twice before our wedding, told him what we wanted the ceremony to be like and little bit about ourselves. The ceremony was sweet, lighthearted, and so personal, exactly how we wanted! He made sure that everything was taken care of during the rehearsal and the day of, so we didn't feel nervous at all. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how it was the perfect ceremony for us and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you David:)
Tara · Married on 05/25/2017
Dave is fantastic! He is a genuinely kind and caring individual and it shows in the time and effort that he takes to make each couple's ceremony more memorable. He met with me and my husband three times (meet and greet, interview, and rehearsal) before our ceremony. He even took some professional photos of the wedding to share with us and made customized vow cards. He deserved five stars just leading up to the ceremony, and we were so impressed that he sent us a copy of our marriage license with a tracking number right after the ceremony and stayed around to enjoy in the general splendor of the day. We wish we could give him ten stars. We highly recommend Dave for his personality and professionalism.
