We felt as though we we’re married by a long lost friend. James Sibbet truly loves and enjoys his work. His caring smile, energy and true interest in you and your vows are very touching. He is an officiant that would fit perfectly into any style wedding. . .elaborate or simple. He is very experienced and professional (we we’re wedding 1,887 for him), and is attentive but not intrusive. James brings a sense of calm and happiness that steadies your nerves all while reciting the most beautiful personalized vows. Our wedding day was such a healthy, emotional and loving experience that my husband and I both agreed we we're very happy we had chosen James. . .
Selecting James Sibbet for your wedding day will make it a truly treasured moment.

We were so thankful to have found James. Not only is he thoughtful, honest, and incredibly reliable - he made the wedding amazing!!

We had so many comments about how flawless the wedding went - one reason was simply James. He offered us an authentic and completely assuring presence before, during, and after the ceremony. We are so grateful!

I know it sounds like I'm giving an infomercial - but, what he created for us was simply beyond expectations!! Thank you so much, Mick

It was truly our good fortune to cross paths with James Sibbet, and I am pleased to enthusiastically recommend him as a wedding officiant. I happened across James in a general search for Mendocino Coast officiants and every correspondence we made from that point on, was met with a prompt, professional, and warm response. He is very detailed and helpful in the information and guidance he provides, and truly cares about helping couples to relay their own message to one another and their loved ones through him. James is a person who emanates joy, and thus, is wonderful to listen to and share a joyous day with. He made us feel supported and cared for from the initial email contact through to the end of the day when he presented us with a beautiful keepsake book of our wedding ceremony. James is an accomplished artist, a terrific public speaker, and a warm and kind person. We were grateful for his part in our wedding day and highly recommend his services.

James officiated our wedding in Mendocino, and we could not have been more thrilled with his work. He wrote a ceremony that suited us perfectly, recommended a great location, and brought an extremely positive energy to the occasion.

We are very lucky to have found James, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants their wedding day to be very special.

We had a destination wedding in Albion, CA and took a chance on James on the good recommendations of our venue and acquaintances. I was a bit nervous because we didn't have a chance to meet him before the wedding ceremony, but it went so well! James stopped by before the ceremony, calmly talked to me and encouraged me despite my pre-wedding craziness, and happily made some last minute changes I frantically requested. The whole thing went off without a hitch. We got tons of positive feedback - my family loved him! James worked with us by email to work out some special ceremony requests. We put a lot of trust in him to pull them off and it was absolutely perfect. Thanks again James for the beautiful ceremony!

We are so thankful that we had James officiate our wedding. He's such a lovely person. We live in Manhattan Beach, so we didn't get to meet James till our wedding day. My husband and I got such a good feeling about him during our phone call and through our emails that we knew we had the right guy for us. Everything he said and wrote really resonated with us. Our family members were also impressed with him and his gentle, kind, fun, inspiring way. If we got married again today, we would ask James to be our officiant. That's for sure! :) Enjoy!

James was amazing! Like the previous couple, we took a chance on him when we found his website. He took into account everything we said we wanted for our ceremony, and he performed it beautifully! He brings so much love and emotion to what he does, I wouldn't have traded him for anyone. I truly recommend James to anyone planning a wedding in the Mendocino area.

We had no advanced knowledge or recommendation of James we just took a gamble on him. James was flexible, very cooportive and we dont think we could have picked a better person for our wedding. James made things happy for us, it was a joy to have James part of our history. We've had so many of our guest and family members ask us, where did you located this person, "he was really perfect".

Needless to say we couldnt have found a better fit for a wonder wedding.

Thank you James, Virginia and I are so happy the memory of our special day will always have you as part of a wonder time in our lives.
