About this Vendor

Officiant and DJ, Cynthia CherishTheLuv Malaran

I coordinate surprise proposals, then I DJ and officiate the weddings! I have been DJing events and weddings, and as an ordained minister I write humorous and memorable ceremonies that friends and family talk about. Other officiants have asked if they could copy some of my lines, and I say sure! I just want everyone to have laugh, cry, and have a wonderful day at the start of a forever marriage. I light up inside when I do weddings— it warms me to the core knowing that one of the happiest days of my life is the happiest day of yours. I read out of a lovely heart-shaped binder made of flowers that I handmade for that special touch folks adore. I hope to speak with you! My rates start at $500 for officiating, and $1500 for DJing.

I could not have planned or wrote a more personal ceremony if I had done it myself! Cynthia went above and beyond to get to know each other personally and ask questions that allowed for a fun and memorable ceremony for all included. Many laughs and crying all around!

Thank You Ross! I absolutely LOVED officiating your wedding! It is one of the happiest moments of my life, and best trips to LA/Palm Springs ever!

Cynthia is an incredible human being and the most fabulous officiant ever. Within five minutes of our first conversation, I knew we had found the person to marry us. In fact, she was so great we also hired her to be our DJ! (See her DJ page for that review, sneak preview, she... Read More killed it!!) The level of care and amount of time she put into making our ceremony so unique and personal to us was extraordinary. She gave my husband and I assignments to help her get to know us inside and out. Just working on the assignments together made us closer as a couple. The ceremony itself was beyond what we could have ever hoped for. It was so personal to us. There were even a few surprises that really touched us. The ceremony resulted in lots of happy tears and laughs from our guests; the majority of whom have not stopped raving about the ceremony and our amazing officiant. My now husband is terrified of public speaking. Knowing this, Cynthia managed to keep the ceremony short while still fitting in everything we threw at her. Astonishingly, the way Cynthia conducted the ceremony had my husband utterly at ease. He told me after how shocked and happy he was that he was able to truly enjoy the ceremony and be present in the moment. We both cannot thank Cynthia enough for that. In the process of getting to know us we also got the chance to get to know Cynthia. She is nothing short of incredible. She is an inspiration to all and an utter joy to be around. Cynthia was our officiant and is our friend for life.

I recently attended a wedding officiated by Cynthia Cherish Malaran. It was one of the most beautiful, personalized ceremonies I have ever heard (I am 68 and have attended a lot of weddings!). She spoke about each of the grooms and also passed their tied together rings among all... Read More the guests for each of us to add our blessing. Her benediction to the couple (and guests included) was so meaningful. I did not learn until later that this was Cynthia's first wedding. Couples who choose her will be in for a lovely service.

Was my fiancée's guest at her girlfriend’s wedding in San Francisco. Good people, fun crowd, but what really made my night was the music. I ate a bite of dinner and heard the music. Stood straight up grabbed my girl’s hand and that was it. All night long we danced laughed and... Read More said more than 20 times "I love this song". With having an eclectic taste for music it's hard to get me out all night on the dance floor. In fact I was sad when the music stopped and knew I wanted to hear more. We are one of the three last couples still dancing at the end of the night and it’s all on the wedding video. So Cynthia will be our DJ FOR LIFE AND OUR WEDDING in July in San Diego. —Jesse

You'll get a truly heartfelt ceremony written by Cynthia. She really got to know my friends and wanted the absolute best day for them. She really cares... about both the music when she DJs and in writing the ceremony. Big heart.
