"BEST OFFICIANT IN TOWN! We called and interviewed ALL the local officiants in Los Angeles that we found online, shared reviews with our close friends and Jon consistently was chosen, and he won our hearts when we realized he truly accepts and welcomes us as a same sex couple. Jon comforted us before and during the ceremony like a family member would. Jon's message lifted our spirits and made it more special than how we imagined. Throughout the reception our friends and families thought Jon was one of our best friends, and we have couples who will call him for their wedding, while others were motivated to renew their vows by Jon. We are forever grateful for Jon and we highly recommend him!"
Review from Oscar F. on Yelp
"From the beginning, Jon stood out from the other officiants we spoke to thanks to his listening, understanding, and eloquence. He was incredibly responsive and detail-oriented throughout the entire planning process. (My name is notoriously hard to pronounce, and I often use it as a metric for how well people pay attention to introductions. He got my name correct from the very first phone call!) During the ceremony, his remarks were spot on and perfectly suited the tone we wanted. Even in this day and age, I was worried that our same-sex marriage would be problematic for some officiants. Jon made us feel welcome and celebrated us! Everyone could tell that he put in plenty of time to prepare his remarks, and he helped to make us feel secure and happy during a potentially stressful day."
Review from Davin M.
"Jon is exceptional, a rare person with a rare talent! My partner and I wanted a very spontaneous wedding (no written vows, just wing it and have fun with each other). We both have a good sense of humor and wanted to joke with each other during our vows and Jon easily kept up with us! He was simply amazing with his natural ability to just join in the fun and hop on the ride with us. Jon is truly an amazing person and officiate! He is well deserving of every 5 star rating he gets. Just get him for your special day and then relax. The moment we got him for our wedding, all our concerns or worries about anything vanished. He was by far the best wedding gift we could have gotten for our special day!"
