If you want your wedding to be like every other wedding you've ever been to, I'm NOT your guy. Each ceremony I perform is 100% personalized and unique.

I promise not to begin the ceremony with the words..."Dearly Beloved."

I'll take the time to find out who you are as individuals, and as a couple...which will allow me to understand what makes your relationship so special. Then I'll create an opening monologue that will paint a picture for the audience of your life together, from the first date to the proposal, a story that is truly unique to you.

I take my role seriously, I love what I do and I'll be passionate about being part of the most important day of your lives!

Call me on my cell at (949) 945-8450 so we can chat about your big day and see if you think I'm a fit.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks!

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination)
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, of course! I'll be comfortable in any setting that you choose for your wedding day.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Typically formal attire (black suit, white shirt and black tie) but upon request I'll dress to accommodate your wishes.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Totally! Each ceremony is a blank canvas.
 During our consult, we'll discuss what you envision for each part of the ceremony, allowing me to design a ceremony that will be perfectly tailored to the personalities and beliefs of you & your fiance'.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Absolutely not, each one of my ceremonies is completely different and unique from the rest.
How long are your ceremonies?
My ceremonies average between 15 to 20 minutes from start to finish.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No, but I do recommend it.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Unless the ceremony has a lot of moving parts, it's not crucial that a Wedding Officiant attend the rehearsal. (any Officiant that insists on booking a Rehearsal is probably trying to get extra fees out of you) If it would make you feel better for me to be there, of course I'm willing to attend, but there is an additional charge of $150 for this service.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, but I do have my own lapel mic that I prefer to use. Under normal conditions a sound system is only necessary for audiences of more than 75 people.

AJ was easy to reach and has an awesome personality. Very calm, sincere and helpful. He made the ceremony very engaging and is an excellent story teller. He took tibits of our own experiences and made this heartfelt, funny and creative presentation that everyone enjoyed. I was nervous for a moment and he helped me relax with his humor. At the end everyone was asking if he was a family friend. The guests at one point asked where he had gone and if he was coming back. He was on time and easy to get along with. Most people spend more money on flowers, chair covers, and cake, but at the end no one remembers those things as much as the unique ceremony.

AJ is truly amazing !!!! I was nervous because we couldn't meet with him until the day before our wedding (we live out of state) but I couldn't have picked anyone better. We met with him individually so he could get the most important details of our feelings, our love for each other and our history in our own words. He took our words and told a beautiful love story during our ceremony. My fiancee and I were both in tears ... You will not be disappointed !!!! Thanks again AJ

AJ did an amazing job with our ceremony. I had so many of our guests tell me that they loved how personal and specific the story was that he told of how we met and how we feel about each other. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant - he incorporated every element we wanted in a way that flowed perfectly. He even included some humor which is definitely a plus for us. I recommend AJ without hesitation to anyone looking for someone to make their wedding day even more special and memorable.

WOW! AJ is by far the best officiant in the business! I've been to my share of weddings, and, yes, they're all beautiful in their own way, but speaking on behalf of every guest at my own wedding with my husband, AJ is truly unique in the way he conducts ceremonies. Our ceremony was heartfelt, personal and intimate without all the usual fluff you hear at traditional weddings. It was completely personalized. Everyone thought that AJ was a close friend of the family - that's how well he represented us! From the very beginning, AJ treated our relationship with sincere interest, taking the time to meet with us, hear our stories, how we feel and what we mean to each other. Recording us separately was absolute genius! During the ceremony, my husband and I felt like we were rediscovering each other through AJ's words - he took everything we said and delivered it ten times better! He had me crying at my own words as he quoted me to my husband! After the ceremony, every single person, including the guests, wedding coordinators and vendors, made a point of telling us how they've never seen a more beautiful ceremony, and we owe it all to AJ. Do not pass him up! He's worth every penny!

Like most weddings we had friends of friends or extended family members meeting my husband or I for the first time but by the end of our ceremony there was not a dry eye and even those who has just met us for the first time knew exactly our love story and all the details. Every one told us they had not ever been to a prettier wedding and it was all due to our very personalized ceremony. AJ took time out of his day to talk to the both of us and get to know us before the wedding. The day of the wedding everything he had to say was new not only to our guest but to us. Listing to the way my husband had expressed his love towards me to somebody else was priceless and unforgettable.
Attention to all brides planning their wedding... All the special details to your reception will be beautiful but don't overlook the importance of the ceremony. It's the most important moment for the groom and bride. The ceremony was truly our favorite part of the wedding and that was all our guest talked about and even to this day everyone remembers our ceremony more than what we had for dinner, the music or the decorations. AJ exceeded our expectation and wort every penny. You will not find another officiant like him or any one to even match his style.

From the first time I spoke to AJ on the phone I knew I wanted him to be our officiant. I didn't want people to dread being at our ceremony like I have many times before. AJ was always there when he needed to be reached, he was not intimidating and he's not your run of the mill wedding officiant. You can tell he really cares about the story he tells during the ceremony. As soon as the ceremony was over people raved about him and said it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever been to. He was worth spending a little bit more.

The officiant is usually the last thought in most brides minds; we tend to think about the dress, the flowers, the cake, and everything else But the officiant. But do you know the officiant really can turn that "tedious" ceremony into something magical, breath-taking and worth remembering? I knew going around the marriage circle a second time that I wanted someone who wasn't just going to recite from a piece of paper or do the whole "dearly beloved" spiel.

AJ really does things different than most officiants you will find out there. He takes the time to learn the background and story behind a couple, so he can give the couple a really customized funny-tear-jerking ceremony. He kept my husband calm when they were waiting up there and even took time to pull me aside before the ceremony to tell me that everything was going to be ok. Our ceremony came out beautiful. We loved him and it would be crazy if you didn't ask him to perform your ceremony.

We can't thank AJ enough for taking what was planned to be a simple courthouse wedding and turning into a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. If I had met him sooner, we would have made arrangements to take him to Cabo for the symbolic main event!

AJ didn't just go through the motions, he took the time to get to know each of us and became familiar with our lives thus far. His words on the day of our wedding were nothing short of perfect. Even though it was the smallest of gatherings, he treated it like it was a 300 person event. He provided a moment for the two of of that was far beyond our expectations, and I can't thank him enough for making our day so special!

Would I recommend this guy? In a heartbeat! AJ takes great pride in providing an unparalleled experience on what truly is the most important of days. He definitely knows what he's doing.

Thanks again AJ! Harry and Gladys Robertson

We had such an amazing experience working with AJ as we prepared for our big day. He was able to make the process fun while also being professional. We have gotten so many compliments and great feedback from friends and family because they loved his monologue so much! If we were able to do the day again we would have AJ there, no doubt about it!

AJ is more expensive than some, but we found him to be a perfect fit.
His calming presence and flawless delivery made our special day even more special.
He made big promises and delivered when in the spotlight.
AJ took the time to "understand" our story and crafted a ceremony that was the perfect combination of prayer, smiles, tears of joy and tradition.
We highly recommend him.

AJ was an incredible officiant. He was so captivating, original, lighthearted...I could go on and on. He has such a fantastic presence and did a truly incredible job telling "our story". Our guests still can't stop talking about AJ and our ceremony. I couldn't imagine a more perfect, intimate, personal experience. He told the story of our love so beautifully and I'm so grateful we chose him!

AJ is the best! My wife and I found him here on Wedding Wire and we were somewhat reluctant to hire someone we didn't really know for such an important event. After interviewing AJ we both decided to hire him, and we are ecstatic that we did. AJ preformed a very personal ceremony that really highlighted our relationship. He made a very special moment even more special. Thanks AJ!

AJ did such an amazing job putting together all the details we provided him to share our story perfectly. As I listened to him describe how my fiancé (now husband) and I met and felt about each other, it sounded so personal as if he actually knew us. It was for this reason and the reviews of other brides that we chose him and are very happy that we did. Several of our guests commented on how they enjoyed it not being boring like the usual wedding and asked how we knew AJ. We will definitely recommend him to all of our friends to become engaged. Thank you AJ!

He was very nice and went way above to make our day extremely special (even more special than the generic vows that we had anticipated with our friend). WE LOVED how he created our very own ceremony and took the time to write them just for us. I would definitely refer him to everyone.

Before choosing AJ as the officiant for our wedding my wife and I spoke with (interviewed) a handful of other candidates. What separates AJ from his "competitors" is the depth of his genuine interest in learning about the bride and groom and how he tailored a personalized ceremony for us. We had very high expectations for everyone we dealt with in regards to our wedding and I can confidently say that AJ far exceeded these expectations. He took significant time to meet and learn about us and understand the nuances of how our relationship came to be. Our wedding guests were truly blown away by how many personal anecdotes AJ incorporated into the wedding ceremony. He was on time, acted professionally and really made us feel like our ceremony was one of a kind. I would absolutely recommend AJ for any couple who is looking for a personalized, unique and professionally conducted ceremony.

AJ was wonderful.

I loved his contemporary style of getting to know us and speaking with us individually and then together to make our ceremony very personal.

It was also important to me that the officiator at my wedding be confident and very well spoken, possess a high level of comfort with public speaking.

And though I like professionalism, I don't like people to be too removed, I think we all should put a little of ourselves in our work and really care.

AJ delivered on all fronts and I was very pleased with his words, presence and handling of our ceremony.

AJ was a great officiant for our October wedding! He interviewed both of us and made sure he custom tailored our ceremony to us specifically, so there was no cookie cutter ceremony! He was always very flexible and accommodating in our requests and changes we wanted to make to our ceremony. He was available for meetups and he always answered our questions or concerns in a timely manner. Although AJ was not cheap, the ceremony is an important part of your wedding and making sure you have someone who can properly and clearly deliver a ceremony while making the audience feel involved, is definitely worth investing in.

If you want a personalized & meaningful ceremony, then don't look any further than AJ! I initially reached out to AJ via email just to get some general information & he responded with an email & follow up call within the hour. Considering that our wedding was just a few weeks away, it was so refreshing to get an immediate response. Anytime that I'd text or email AJ, he was always very quick to get back to me. Initially, we met with AJ to get a feel for him & determine if he would be right for us. I have to admit that I was very budget concious & knew that we could get other officiants for less so I was tempted to keep looking, but my husband convinced me to go with AJ. & I am soooooo grateful that we did. After we made our decision, we met with AJ a 2nd time & he separated us & asked each us questions about our relationship & the other person. AJ then took all of that information & wrote a monologue which was completely personal to us & our story - it was beautiful & full of both laughs & tears. The fact that AJ has a very calming presence and sincere voice just added to the overall delivery (plus all of the females in the audience appreciated our selection ;). We received numerous compliments from our guests about the ceremony & had many ask us how long we'd known AJ; people were convinced that he was an old friend :) AJ was also very respectful of all of our request regarding the ceremony & never questioned a thing, but was available for advice & suggestions since we'd never been married before. We could not be happier with his services & would highly recommend him to anyone. & for those other brides who are as tight with the budget as I was, I will say this: The whole point of a wedding is to get married and the ceremony is when that takes place & it is what most people will remember so spend the extra bucks on the officiant who will marry you & make that moment totally special and personal.

We could not have asked for someone better than AJ. After reading his reviews we gave him a call and didn't bother calling anyone else after talking to him. That night he sent us a little questionnaire for us to fill out. It consisted of questions about our history together, how we met etc. It was wonderful to re think about all of those things again. On our wedding day he composed the most beautiful manuscript for us. He built in all of our answers into it. It was truly a beautiful service. Another thing we liked about him is his responsiveness. Any question we asked was always answered promptly. We had a very last minute wedding, so his flexibility was great. We thought we were doomed when we decided to have our wedding 2 days away, but AJ was so professional and instead of telling us to go to the next person he found a spot for us in his schedule. He is a wonderful person, we could not have asked for anything better. Know that you are definitely getting the best with AJ.

AJ was GREAT !!! Our wedding was a bit different in that we have been together for 20yrs and have 3 kids together. We have always wanted to get married but just never did. Well we finally did !! AJ created a ceremony all it's own. He told a very unique and special story that was just for us/about us and our history together. Everyone loved it, it brought back memories and the details he told about how we feel for each other was just right on !! I would definitely recommend him.

My wife and I hired AJ to to be our pastor and he was amazing! AJ was a true professional, he arrived at our wedding early, was very patient as our wedding ran a little late and he arrived dressed to impress. My wife and I did our shopping before deciding to hire AJ and I must say he was an excellent choice, he is very affordable, organized and friendly. If you are looking for a pastor that takes great pride in his profession and strives to exceed your expectations, then look no further, because you've just found your man.
Thank you AJ for a day that my wife and I will never forget... Chad & Marina

AJ, thank you so much for making our special day so magical!
The moment we met you, we just knew you were the right person to marry us.

Who knew that with all the planning and running around in making sure everything would be perfect on our wedding day, choosing you to marry us would be the easiest thing on our check list!

AJ was the only wedding officiant we met with (thank goodness) and after meeting with him we knew we didn't have to look any further. He was the one!

We got married last weekend and our family and friends are still talking about how beautiful our ceremony was. AJ took the time to get to know Ex and I and listened to our love story and what we are all about.

We wanted to keep our ceremony short and sweet and indeed it was. It was so intimate and beautiful with a few laughs to keep our guests and their tears of joy composed, including my own and my grooms!

AJ not only connected with Ex and myself but with every single person that was there to witness us coming together.

Thank you soooo much AJ you are amazing…

AJ was an absolute delight to deal with. From the moment we met he made us feel at ease and we knew he was our guy. AJ interviewed us separately to learn about our love for one another and how we met etc. and applied his knowledge of us in our ceremony in a very clever presentation with a touch of humour.
AJ's ceremony definitely stood out from the rest and my wife and I were very happy with how smoothly the ceremony went. At the wedding reception we received many compliments about our officiant and how they were impressed with the "entertaining minister"
Mindy and I would like to express our gratitude to AJ Sexton and we highly recommend him to make your special day that bit more special.

AJ was amazing to work with and made our day so special! We are from UT and wanted to get married in CA. AJ was recommended and we couldn't be happier! From the very beginning AJ was so responsive and professional - making me feel that we had made the right choice for our family wedding even before we met AJ! His vows were beautiful and so perfect for us - amazing that he could capture exactly how we feel without knowing us. Our kids felt so comfortable and AJ was a big part of recognizing how important that was for them. I would highly recommend AJ - he was fun, casual, spiritual, and professional.

AJ was awesome!!! He's made our moment very special for us. He set the perfect tone of romantic, sweet and funny at our ceremony and we couldn't ask for more. If we could get married again we would totally get him to do it for us again.

When we first met him, we knew right away. He's got that natural charm and aura that is hard to put into words. He's made our day and we hope that he will continue to bring as many happy and wonderful days to other loved ones on their special day.

I always found you can't fit a square peg in a round hole, so when looking for an officiant for our wedding we didn't want to hear the typical dearly beloved speech and find ouselves and guests itching to move onto the reception. I was looking for an officant that would accomodate our needs and bring a bit of their own moxie to our union. Well I can tell you with certainty that AJ will deliver and bring that special something to your day.

We planned our wedding in 6 weeks and the one important loose end we didn't tie up until the week of our wedding was securing an officiant for our day. We called AJ on Monday with our wedding on that Friday, and topped it with a requested appearance with us on Thursday. AJ instilled confidence in us from the beginning that he would be able to accomodate our requests and he delivered with precision. He has all the qualities you could ever ask for in a wedding officiant; he is sincere, well spoken, personable, photogenic, and above all else he puts your nerves at ease. When our special day arrived the one thing that we didn't worry about was AJ. He arrived at all of our functions on time and most importantly prepared. AJ had spent time with us interviewing both of us individually to have a firm grasp on our relationship and love for one another; he created a special ceremony that was tailored to meet our requests. If you are reading this review, my only suggestion is you pick up your phone and give him a call to make sure he is available, because in my opinion he is the best option for your Los Angeles area wedding.

Thanks for sealing our love.

Always,

Steve & Desirae

AJ s the perfect wedding officiant. I couldn't believe how personalized he made our ceremony. It seemed like he knew us for years, and our friends and family thought the same thing. He is a class guy and a very genuine guy. I would highly recommend him for your wedding.

He has our contact info. Call him and ask for our number. I'd be happy to show you pictures and provide a testimonial. Rick & Isabel

AJ came thru for us in such a huge way. Because of various family situations, we opted to have a small wedding 3 weeks after our engagement. We found AJ on Wedding wire 1 week before the ceremony was scheduled to take place. He very graciously agreed to meet with us and let us get to know him 4 days before the ceremony. After some very honest conversation about his background and the style of ceremony he does, he allowed me and my fiancé a moment to decide whether we were a good fit and even offered to refer us to another officiant if we didn't think it was a good match. I truly can't imagine a couple this guy would not be a good fit for. I appreciated the soft sell and we both agreed he was a great fit. So we hired him on the spot.

He then interviewed us about how we met, what we loved so much about eachother, etc. to better personalize the ceremony. We had a couple of special requests that he worked very smoothly into his monologue.

The Ceremony itself was better than we could have ever hoped for. His format was totally personalized to our experience. A number of our family and friends thought he must have been a close friend. He involved the guests in the ceremony. The monologue was the perfect length. He struck the perfect balance of gravitas and light-heartedness. And he even gave a personal note at the end talking about how great we seemed to be for one another.

HE DID ALL THIS IN 4 DAYS!!!

I'd DEFINITELY hire AJ all over again.

AJ was an awesome fit for us!! When looking for an officiant we wanted someone who would allow us to customize our vows specific to what we wanted, stay professional and who had a younger more vibrant feel/personality. AJ is all that and more. After our first introductory visit we had a vision for how our vows would be structured and AJ found ways to really add in those special little touches that truly made our vows personal. Your wedding is such a special moment in your life you want everything to go as planned and not all will but you can be confident that AJ will be there on time, prepared and ready for whatever may arise. I would recommend AJ to anyone looking for an officiant!!!Thank you AJ :)

AJ was fantastic!! He was professional, courteous and friendly. We kind of waited a little too long to look for an officiant, but when we found AJ, he was more than willing to help! Even though our wedding was not in his general area of work, he was willing to come out to us and perform our ceremony regardless! The ceremony he performed was not too long, not too short, just as we requested... and it included all the aspects we asked for! We would definitely recommend AJ to anyone looking for an officiant!

Taking a step back from the surreal experience of having a wedding and the emotional high you are ridding on, id like to be honest, straight forward and distance myself from the bliss feeling of marrying the woman i love. AJ did a great job during the ceremony itself. His facade of being the quick witted and personable officiant was great and a few of my guest came up and actually told me he was good. In this area i will give him the credit for. But 15 mins of good work does not a good Officiant make. First he used high pressure sales tactics with us, which i was going to use him anyway but he pressured us not to see other officiant to make up our mind and made the situation awkward. To follow was a one on one interview where me and my wife gave him background information on how we met, where and when. Where we went to school who are families were. Very detailed infact. I give him 5 stars on this as well. However now some alarms came up. In the first meeting with our wedding coordinators he stated that he would not go to a rehearsal and that he would actually charge an outrageous fee to do so, which would have been alright if what happened later never took place. (more on that in a bit). Next we had a second phone interview where he was asked if he was ready and to notify him that we had moved the wedding from 5pm to 4pm....so an hour early. This meeting was taking place to make sure he showed up a 3pm and that he had not responded to the 3....yes 3 emails about the change and attached the new Schedule breakdown. He confirmed he would be there. Come my wedding date at 3:50pm he was nowhere to be found, his excuse was that the wedding started at 5. But that doesnt fly because even so...you would have to be there an hour early and he said that he wouldnt be there til 4:30 at the earliest, (this is with him rushing). Where was he during the calls and emails? Next he started asking me questions filling out a sheet asking me, get this, Where we met..etc.
