Steve was wonderful! Our ceremony was perfect, and Steve was always prompt in his email responses throughout the planning process. Plus, he filed our marriage license on the first business day after our ceremony. Thanks for everything, Steve!

Steve is the absolute best! When we first started planning our wedding we were living in Los Angeles and a little nervous about selecting our vendors from a fair distance. After a few emails we scheduled a Skype call to discuss how we envisioned our ceremony and we knew without a doubt that Steve was our guy. He had a few options for us including different prayers, a few additional ceremonies we could add, reading suggestions and even vow writing tips! This was all immensely helpful as we were really able to create a ceremony unique to us and who we are as a couple. We were so impressed from the beginning and his professionalism and care for all his couples continued to shine through even after our wedding. We feel so lucky to have had him as part of our special day. If your looking for someone who can bring laughter, smiles, ease and more - contact Steve, you won't be disappointed!! :)

Steve was an absolute dream to work with! I would highly recommend A Beautiful Ceremony NW for any couple looking for an officiant.

As someone from a Jewish/Episcopalian dual faith household marrying someone from a Japanese Buddhist/Athiest household, I was unsure about how to go about having a nondenominational ceremony that didn't seem corny or weird. Steve said it would be no problem at all and took down our input throughout the process, resulting in an absolutely gorgeous ceremony that our guests still rave about over two weeks later. I was so impressed and am so happy with how our ceremony turned out -- even my very religious Episcopalian grandmother thought it was a wonderful ceremony (and she is very hard to impress).

Thank you Steve for everything! We really appreciate it!

Myself and my domestic partner were finally able to get married legally in the state of WA due to the changing laws. Rev. Sharp conducted are ceremony back in 2011 when we had are large wedding with friends and family, so I found it only appropriate to have him conduct a small ceremony for us now. When I reached out to Rev. Sharp he still remembered us even though the event was years ago. He was so gracious and came and did the ceremony for FREE! As usual, he made the environment comfortable and enjoyable. His professionalism is outstanding and he is fantastic at what he does. We truly appreciate his kindness and flexibility to work with us. Thank you for your dedication to your couples and for all that you do!!

Thanks so much, Michelle! Not only for your kind words, but also for looking me up so long after your first celebration to perform your wedding ceremony once the law changed in Washington. It was truly an honor and a pleasure to help you and Katt become legally married. Thanks again! :-)

Wow! Steve was beyond amazing. From our first email reaching out to him, he was incredibly friendly and very responsive to our emails. Before officially booking him, we met with him and his vibe was one that we knew we could trust, and one that we wanted to be there to radiate at our wedding. Steve is very personable and pleasant to be around, you honestly can't help but want to smile with you're around him. Not having been to a wedding before my own, I wasn't sure what to expect, or what needed to be done for the ceremony-Steve walked me through it. He was so flexible and understanding while we requested That our ceremony script be edited a few different times, until we finally found what we thought was perfection. He was such a way of speaking, and a great sense of humor that it felt as though he was an old friend speaking at our ceremony rather than someone we only met once before! Hands down the best officiant ever! My family specifically came up during the reception asking where we found Steve, while drowning him in compliments! Don't not be hesitant, he is great and he will make your wedding day a breeze.

Leslie officiated our wedding and did an amazing job! She was very thoughtful and thorough in our first meeting with her, and was responsive and easy to work with when it came to writing the draft of the ceremony. We chose our own readings and she fit them in no problem. On the day of the wedding she was very understanding of some delays and last minute changes, and the ceremony ended up perfect. We really appreciate the excellent job she did!

Reverend Steve came highly recommended to me by a handful of other vendors who I had already booked for our June wedding. We were planning our wedding from across the country, and so weren't quite sure how it would work to coordinate with an officiant without meeting in person. Steve was just so awesome. He got back to us right away, set up a phone call for the very next day, and then walked us through the process he uses to craft the ceremony. He got a sense of what we were looking for in the ceremony, made a few suggestions on different things we could incorporate, gave some ideas for potential readings, etc. and then got back to us with a ceremony draft that was almost perfect right off the bat. We didn't meet Steve in person until the day of the wedding, but his cheerful demeanor and friendliness really set the tone for the ceremony, and we both felt so comfortable and happy throughout the whole day. Thanks, Steve!

Everyone at my wedding talked about how Steve had this calming yet energetic spirit he brought to the ceremony. We knew as soon as we met him that he was who we wanted him to be apart of our wedding day. He was open to our very non religious ceremony and really knew how to fit in personalized details about us. I will recommend him to every bride I meet!

Thank you so much Steve!
