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 Sexton is amazing! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. He is professional, talented, kind,  humorous and truly cares. We found him through weddingwire and after reading all the positive reviews we decided to meet with him.
We didn't want a generic (or boring) Ceremony so we were definitely looking for someone unique.  My husband has a great sense of humor so our ideal officiant would incorporate humor and personality into the ceremony as well. AJ definitely fit the bill!!
He took the time to get to know us and incorporated details of our lives seamlessly into the ceremony. He kept our guests engaged and kept my husband and I smiling, even though we had moments of tears. We had a family tragedy just weeks before the wedding and AJ was very understanding and accommodating. He was very respectful and sensitive to the situation and kept things light when we started to get emotional.
I can't tell you how much we recommend AJ! Anyone who uses him won't be disappointed. One of our friends has officiated a few weddings and he couldn't say enough good things about AJ and the ceremony.  We had so many people come up to us and say it was the best ceremony they have ever attended. 
AJ made our day so very special. Thank you!!!

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

My Fiancé and I were going through a lot just before our wedding both emotionally and physical. The only thing we knew for sure is that we wanted to be married. We had a few officiates fall through either due to time/day, or religious conflicts. I was a bit skeptical of having someone we just found online to perform, but time was factor. We talked to a few people and AJ told us that he has a passion for helping and making the experience special. We met him and though that he would be a “good” officiate. He interviewed us individually, and then at the wedding day, he was encouraging and supportive. AJ’s personality comes across like an excited young kid, and that was what made a difference. He has performed over 80 ceremonies, and each one is as exciting to him as the first. He made us laugh, cry, and re-enforced that we were meant for each other. He made a wonderful occasion even better, and in my mind went from “Good” to “Remarkable”! We had so many compliments on AJ running the ceremony. I would highly recommend AJ to perform any ceremony and thank him so much for making this day so easy to share this with my beautiful and amazing wife.

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.
