Pastor Lora Lea is an amazing person. She met with my fiance and I prior to conducting the wedding ceremony to meet the both of us. She's personable, comforting and was always available to answer and questions. I highly recommend her to anyone that's getting married.

Lora Lea delivered an outstanding wedding service! Before the wedding, she worked with us to fine tune our ceremony so that we would have a beautiful wedding at the Japanese Gardens with picturesque moments. In the ceremony, she artfully incorporated the Japanese Garden...

I have been to a lot of weddings over the past year (including my own) and can honestly say that Gordon is the best officiant I have seen. We used him for our wedding and he truly made the ceremony so heartfelt and sweet. He and his wife, Lora, are two of the sweetest people you... Read More will ever meet and they really care about their couples. Gordon took the time to meet with us before the wedding, learn what we wanted in our ceremony, and everyone in our family and wedding party's names. It was a really sweet touch that he mentioned how long both of our parents had been married. He is really funny and calms any nerves you may have on the big day. We cannot recommend The Wedding Preacher highly enough!
