From the very beginning, Eric was extremely responsive, helpful, and supportive. His guidance and clear communication completely eased our nerves and we never had to ask for additional follow-up or for him to re-explain because he did such a great job outlining the process, the...

Eric was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. We had been to a few weddings, and spoken to a few officiants before Eric, who tended to ramble on and on and almost try to be the star of the show to a degree - our worst nightmare. Eric was perfect. From the get go,... Read More he made the process so easy for us - no driving 45 min out of our way in LA traffic to meet - we chatted over Skype for the initial "interview" process. His professionalism really impressed us, and it reflected in his website, which was a godsend - it is so well done and makes creating your perfectly tailored ceremony an absolute breeze! We wanted a short, sweet, and intimate feeling ceremony - and Eric 100% delivered. He was also so wonderful at rolling with the drama, we had a pretty delayed start due to a guest shuttle mishap, and he didn't skip a beat and was so nice and laid back about it. We can't thank him enough and are so happy he was our officiant!

Eric was absolutely outstanding. Our wedding was on May 27, 2012 and we are still glowing from that day. My wife and I would highly recommend Eric for all your officiant needs. Our first meeting was at a Starbucks and we instantly remarked how easy-going and unique Eric... Read More was. His take on the wedding ceremony was all about the bride and groom, as it should be (in my opinion). We felt that he took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple and this helped him set the tone for our ceremony-- in other words, he read our vibes and was able to amplify them. Eric is incredibly friendly, easy to talk to, and a fantastic listener. He was prompt at returning phone calls and emails. When we said we were looking for a non-demoninational wedding with elements from both our religions, he sent us ceremony samples that were instrumental in crafting our own ceremony. We built our ceremony with his suggestions, and were even able to make last-minute changes that did not impact his reading. He was flexible in us rewriting a bunch of readings to accommodate our individuality. He was available whenever we needed to talk and even nudged us when we were running a little long and a little late. When it came time to reading the words we had chosen, Eric was amazing in his delivery and we had many compliments afterwards saying as much. Also, it was great that he took care of all of our Marriage License needs. We filled out the paperwork the day of the wedding, went on our honeymoon, and returned to find the completed license in our mailbox. Overall, Eric was fantastic and we were so happy with the way our ceremony turned out. Thanks again, Eric for your wonderful support, kindness, and aid during the process.
