My husband and I are from Massachusetts and decided to get married in California. By a google search we were blessed to have found Reverend Kevin Tripp. After an email, his prompt response was then followed by a phone call where Kevin and my husband John and I talked extensively about location options, our faith and what was important to John and I through our marriage ceremony. Kevin emailed several different ceremony options for guidance including appropriate scriptures. We were more than happy with his wisdom and professionalism. The day of our wedding, Kevin was punctual as he met us at our hotel where we would have our ceremony in the courtyard. Extremely accommodating and patient, he held my IPad so my family back in Massachusetts could witness me in my wedding gown via face time. John and I are more than satisfied and overjoyed that we were able to find Reverend Tripp to bless our Marriage! What a wonderful man! Thank you Kevin!

Dear Laurel,
I wanted to let you know that your review of your wedding service came mistakenly to me. I am not Paul, your officiant. Perhaps you would want to re-direct the review to his site.
Thank you!

Kevin was the perfect addition to our ceremony. At our very first meeting with him we knew that he would be great. He helped us to write our ceremony and gave us feedback as needed. He was patient when one of us didn't send our materials in on time. :) He added humor and meaning to our day. This was a destination wedding for us and working with Kevin was easy. We are so happy that we found him!

Rev. Kevin Tripp was so easy to work with. Right from the beginning of the process his concern was to accommodate our wishes. We pretty much knew what we wanted but still asked Fr. Kevin for advice and his opinion on some matters. He gave us suggestions, some we accepted and some we didn't think would be right for us so we said no to them. Fr. Kevin always agreed to accommodate our wishes. We feel everyone ought to be fortunate enough to have someone like Fr. Kevin to work with when planning their wedding ceremony.

We can’t say enough great things about Kevin Tripp. We hired Kevin to officiate our wedding this May at a winery in Healdsburg. From the earliest interactions to the day of the ceremony, Kevin exuded a quiet confidence and passion for what he does.

We were pleasantly surprised in being able to meet with her several times before the wedding to help us prepare for the big day. We needed a little extra help since we were planning a destination wedding from the East coast. He was always professional and his attention to detail was perfect. One example was the way he explained and helped us prepare to get the marriage license. The Sonoma county office is extremely particular about filling out the marriage application and he helped us quickly resolve an issue with the office. We established a great dialogue with Kevin throughout the process and thru the rehearsal and wedding.

He also tailored the ceremony for us from the vows, prayers, attire and ceremony. All of our questions were promptly answered and his experience provided us with the calmness we needed. There is comfort and ease about Kevin that only comes from someone who cares. Kevin took the time to help make our experience as special as it should be. We thank you Kevin for what you do and for marrying us. We can't imagine anyone else that could have been better for our wedding.

Thank you so much.

We are very happy that we chose Kevin to be the officiant for our wedding ceremony in San Francisco. He was very professional and was very helpful in answering all the questions that came up throughout the months leading up to our wedding. He gave us all of the information we needed to apply for our marriage license, and he did all the follow up work to file our license after the ceremony had taken place. During the ceremony, he spoke clearly and performed the ceremony very well. We chose to write our own vows and we shared them with Kevin prior to the ceremony, and he had the foresight to provide us with laminated index cards of our written vows during the ceremony so that we didn't have to worry about forgetting them! I interviewed a couple of other local SF officiants before meeting with Kevin, I would highly recommend him over any others.

Paul Howell of Marriage with Meaning was an amazing Wedding Officiant. My Husband and I were married in February 2014. Paul played a big role in giving us the Wedding of our dreams. My husband and I both have extremely busy schedules. Paul was so easy to reach, so easy to talk with and plan with. We had a small intimate wedding on a gorgeous cliff overlooking beautiful mountains and the ocean. I'll never forget how Paul made everything so easy, stress free and personal. He took the time to listen to what we wanted and he did it in a way that showed he really cares about giving people their dream wedding. I have no hesitation recommending Paul Howell as a wedding officiant. He will go above and beyond to make your wedding everything you want it to be...and even more.
