Kathy was the officiant for my and my husband's wedding in Berkeley, CA. She did such an amazing job! She was incredibly organized, and she worked with us to put together the ceremony of our dreams. She looked over my husband and I's wedding vows prior to the ceremony, and she provided us with a checklist of things to do before and after the wedding related to obtaining a wedding license and name changing. After the ceremony, she found our witnesses for us and had then sign everything so that we wouldn't have to worry about finding them. My husband and I would highly recommend booking Kathy as your officiant! Thank you so much, Kathy, for your hard work and for officiating our wedding!

Kathy was our officiant for our 7/30 wedding in San Francisco. She made the process very clear and easy to follow. We exchanged a few emails and set up a phone chat the same week I reached out to her (as a recommendation from my wedding planner). She is very experienced and has a lot of good templates/ideas to use which also helped us. The day of the ceremony we were really pleased with her professionalism and punctuality. She calmed my nerves for sure and helped me not overthink it!

I would absolutely recommend Larry Wilkerson as an officiant. My husband and I had him officiate our wedding, and we couldn't have found a better person. He was very accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. Moreover, he eased our nerves during the rehearsal dinner (getting everything 'just so'), and we greatly appreciated his warm, personable & diplomatic disposition. Lastly, he processed our paperwork in a timely fashion and was always very communicative and prompt (on all fronts--from email exchanges to the initial face-to-face meeting, the rehearsal dinner, and of course our wedding day). We are grateful for his services and would recommend him to any couple looking to get married!

Kathy officiated our wedding and was amazing! Kathy really helped us through the process and was flexible to our last minute changes and additions. I would recommend her hands down! And it was a bonus that she was really reasonably priced compared to other wine country officiants.

Five plus stars for Heartfelt Weddings! Larry was our officiant on our wedding day at the Observation Post Presidio in San Francisco. We met with him in advance and we knew right away that he would be perfect to be part of our special day. He was very detailed on giving us instructions on what to do during rehearsal as well as the wedding day.

Our family and friends complimented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Larry sent to us several ceremony samples in advance and we customized it based on what we were looking for. We are really happy that we met Larry.

I definitely recommend Heartfelt Weddings to anyone looking for an officiant to make their wedding a memorable experience.

Here's a highlight video of our wedding day: vimeo.com/169437387

My husband and I were extremely happy to have Larry perform our wedding ceremony! He has such a warm and friendly demeanor that you will feel as though you have known him for many years. Larry was extremely professional, reliable, and flexible. His is very reasonable and even provides a printed copy of your ceremony as a lovely keepsake. We are so grateful for having had such a wonderful person be an integral part of one of the most important days of our life. Every aspect from beginning to end was perfect and we cannot recommend him highly enough!

Larry made planning the ceremony very smooth and also very personalized. He provided a list of several ceremony types (he does religious and nonreligious) and gave suggestions on how to customize it. You can write your own vows (we did) or not. You can add various readings and ceremonies. We had a Chinese tea ceremony and did it a slightly nontraditional way, and Larry helped us work it into the ceremony smoothly. Also, since Larry is so organized and has you make all of these decisions at least a few days in advance of the ceremony, there was that much less stress and decision making the day before and day of the wedding. Then, he also prints out and binds the ceremony and your vows in a small booklet that you then get to keep after the ceremony, a really nice gesture. In addition, he gives you all the instructions you need for applying for a marriage license and what to do after the ceremony. Definitely exceeded all my expectations!

Kathy was amazing and easy to work with! She made everyone feel at ease during our rehearsal and was extremely detailed and thorough during the planning process. From the time we first spoke until the wedding day, we felt confident we were in good hands, which is important when you have so many other things to worry about in making wedding plans. She also never lost sight of what is important: two people proclaiming their love to each other among friends. It was a very special day, and she knew how to make it special.

My husband, Kevin, and I are truly honored to have Larry officiate our wedding last month. I was lost when it came to developing a ceremony program and I actually wanted to put it off until the last minute. I was not the typical bride who had a dream wedding or was a hopeless romantic who wanted to write and sob through her own vows. I made it very clear to Larry that I wanted the ceremony to be short and simple and did not like that type of attention on me.

Larry was graciously encouraging. He allowed me time and space to review other ceremony programs and select elements from them that would work for me. Larry was really flexible and understanding. My first attempt ended up being only 5-6 minutes, when the standard length of time is between 20 and 30 minutes.

After our second or third meeting with Larry and thoughtful and organic conversations about our families and relationship, Kevin and I decided on a theme that resonated so beautifully with the love for our parents as well as the season of thanks – that was, family. With Larry’s help, we incorporated as many different touching elements that involved our parents. There was not a dry eye in the house!

Aside from his professionalism and grace, Kevin and I have come to really appreciate Larry’s friendship as well as his genuine enthusiasm and support for our union. Kevin and I surprisingly teared up during our wedding ceremony. We were fortunate to have Larry by our sides to guide us through the process – he even had a spare tissue that he readily retrieved from his coat without pausing the program!

Thank you so much Larry for all you did and all you stand for! Any couple would be so lucky and honored to have you marry them. You are a gem!
