We HIGHLY recommend Matt as your officiant. We are from Alberta and got married in Phoenix so my only form of communication was email with him. I also have a type A personality so of course I had a million questions for him. Matt was on top of getting back to me within a day at most and was always there for support and giving me suggestions. The ceremony was absolutley flawless and we had so many compliments that night on how he performed. Matt has a vibrant, positive personality and made us feel as if he was a friend and made the process much more enjoyable. Hands down best choice for your special day.

Stop right here and look no further!! If you want your wedding ceremony to be personal and unique, Matt is your guy!! I was nervous about picking someone I never met before to be apart of the most sacred part of our wedding so I took my search very seriously! I did my due diligence and my husband and I met with Matt first and within in the first couple seconds we both knew deep in our soul he was a perfect match for us. He was so responsive to our emails and helped us with ever detail of our wedding ceremony. I keep getting told from our wedding guest we had by far the most amazing and best ceremony they have ever witnessed. It was so personal, funny at the right parts, serious and sincere in the right parts and very unique to us. I honestly couldn't imagine a more amazing ceremony for our wedding and a more perfect person to allow in our personal circle to marry us. Matt continues to reach out and help after the wedding as well which is amazing. So do yourself a favor and choose Matt as your officiant, you will not be disappointed!!

STOP SEARCHING AND HIRE KYLE from 1st Officiant!!!!!!
From the moment we met him - he was upbeat, sweet, and funny! Exactly what we wanted!

His readings at our wedding were PHENOMENAL! I am BLOWN AWAY! Kyle did such a fantastic job and exceeded my highest expectations. His awesome attitude and fun personality really made us feel so at ease that day! Hiring Kyle was a HUGE key part in starting our lives together and really sharing with our guests a wonderfully written story!
I cant tell you how many people came up to us/ emailed/ text us - how great of a job he did and that it was the best of all the weddings they have been to.
I have read and re-read these readings over a million times because I LOVE IT THAT MUCH!


WE GIVE KYLE 5 MILLION STARS! (5 isnt enough) Thank You for making our guests laugh! They are still talking about it :)

Matt was an absolute professional all the way through. He was recommended through our wedding planner, and he did not disappoint. We had a long engagement (20 months), and he was constantly following up with us every few months just to see how things were going. He put an incredible amount of time and effort into personalizing our vows. His brought really great energy to the ceremony. My wife and I have been to weddings where the Officiant has low energy, or talks about themselves quite a bit. Or goes on and on about a certain subject, clearly losing the audience. Matt is the exact opposite of that. Great energy, very compassionate, and knows when to hop in and out of frame. The most compliments we received were about him. We felt lucky to have him, and I would recommend him to anyone no matter what type of wedding you are having. Even my parents thought he was so great, they wanted him to stay for the reception.

After looking at what felt like a hundred different officiants, we settled on 1st officiant to perform our wedding ceremony. We felt the vibe they put out was in line with our views for a light, entertaining, secular wedding. We met with Rob Young who was perfectly aligned with what we envisioned for our ceremony, and we began planning.

Rob asked for details about our story, how we met, how we got engaged, etc. Then separately he asked us for things we loved about each other and things we aspired to in our relationship. He had a few follow up questions and was always easy to communicate with. We selected several readings we liked and sets of vows we both enjoyed.

We could not have been happier with how our ceremony turned out. Rob was a great speaker and made our ceremony sound deeply personal to us as a couple. We have received nothing but excellent feedback from our guests who thought the ceremony was beautiful and personal. We would recommend Rob and 1st officiant to any couple without reservation.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having Kyle from 1st Officiants to officiate our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Kyle and how our ceremony went at our wedding. On our first meeting we knew right away that we wanted Kyle to officiate our wedding. You could tell that he truly cared and wanted to get a sense of who we are as a couple and individuals. Our ceremony was so personal, you would have thought he would have known us for years! I got so many compliments from guests saying how much they loved my ceremony.

Matt was absolutely amazing! Our ceremony sounded and felt that it was being performed by a close friend that truly knew Colton and myself. He was always there when we (or our parents:-)) had questions. Our guests were raving about Matt. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a personalized and thought-out ceremony. Thank you for everything Matt!!

Matt is amazing!! My husband was very apprehensive about finding an officiant because he did not want our ceremony to be religious but after our first meeting we knew we found a match with Matt. He understands it's your ceremony and not about his beliefs. He takes the time to meet with you and hear about your love story to create a personalized ceremony. We were very impressed with our ceremony as Matt nailed describing our relationship and personalities during our ceremony and it felt like we knew him for years. Many family members/friends enjoyed our personalized ceremony and someone said it's a ceremony they will never forget. Thank you Matt for a beautiful and unique ceremony!!

Matt was so amazing!!!! I can not say that enough! My husband and I had less than a month to find our officiant due and was recommended Matt. Matt is worth every penny, I'm not even kidding. He made our ceremony personal, engaging, and a story about our love. People came up to us afterwards to ask if Matt was a friend or family member and were shocked to learn that he wasn't, that is how personal and amazing he makes the ceremony. I am so lucky to have an amazing person such as Matt be our officiant. Thank you so much for making our day that much better and unique! Love The Serrano's!
