My love for officiating weddings started long ago. My wife and I own a business that helps people celebrate anniversaries and special occasions as well as assisting in creative marriage proposals. Our clients liked our services so much that they wanted to return to us for their wedding or to renew their vows.

For the past 6 years, I have enjoyed officiating weddings ranging in size from 2 - 300 people in attendance. My goal is to connect with you and provide the type of service that YOU want. As a non-denominational wedding officiant, I am flexible, friendly and affordable. Unless you prefer differently, all wedding and renewal ceremonies are custom written just for you.

Please feel free to give me a call at 831-601-1650 to discuss your ceremony. I am happy to meet with you (if you are in town) or correspond via email, phone or Skype.

A wedding is a magical event, and I appreicate your consideration of me for your special day!

We worked with Brian Borgia at Monterey Wedding Officiants. He was friendly and professional. Brian worked around our busy schedule for our initial meeting. He had a questionnaire for us to fill out, which consisted of what type of ceremony we were looking for, how my husband and I met, basically our love story. There was no pressure to get it done right then and there, which was GREAT!

After we met Brian we knew we wanted him to be our officiant. He created our wedding ceremony based on the information we gave him off of the questionnaire. As my husband and I read it, we began to tear up, it was so beautifully written!

Brian was also present for our rehearsal, he was so organized and creative, he definitely took the edge off. On our wedding day it was nothing less than perfect! Brian did a fabulous job. It was an honor working with him. We would definitely recommend Monterey Wedding Officiants to couples looking for an officiant.

We are very happy that we chose Brian Borgia to perform our Wedding ceremony.
He stayed in contact with us via email before our Wedding day and responded promptly to any questions that we had. Brain was very helpful in suggesting a few locations to hold our beach ceremony since we were coming from Sacramento and not familiar with the local area. He was very professional and was not lacking in warmth and sincerity in delivering our vows. Our special day turned out beautiful and perfect!! We would definitely recommend Brian Borgia to anyone. :)

Absolutely the perfect man for the job! We wanted our ceremony to be about sharing our extremely unique love story and Brian Borgia flawlessly gave us the ceremony we envisioned. He wonderfully painted a picture in our guests minds of the love my bride and I have for each other and exactly why we were marrying each other. Brain took the time to learn about each of our lives and how we ended up together after not seeing each other for 18 years. I have great respect for those who truly have a passion for what they do and it's apparent that Brian definitely loves what he does. A true professional every step of the way. Our day was absolutely perfect and Brain Borgia played a huge role in putting together the best day of our lives!

Coordinating a custom wedding ceremony with Brian was fabulous! He truly let us design a ceremony that reflected our personalities & "story". We first met with Brian to complete a short questionnaire which asked fun, personal questions about our relationship (how did we meet, how did we get engaged, etc.) He highlighted all of these little, personalized details during the wedding ceremony which our friends & family loved. We laughed, we cried - it was beautiful. Brian has such contagious, positive energy which is such a pleasure to be around. We couldn't have been happier having him as such an integral part of our special day!

Brian didn't just "officiate" our wedding...he told a "Love Story" of our family. Brian took the time to really understand what we wanted from our ceremony. He was very organized and had an amazing template that made it very easy to plan our wedding ceremony. Brian's extra attention to detail and his outstanding presentation style is a testament to his unique talents and his desire to make every couple's wedding day extra special. Look no further....you have found the perfect person to officiate your wedding!!

Thanks, Denise! For people reading this review, this wedding was for my oldest brother, Scott. To be able to perform their ceremony, in front of my siblings and parents (their first time seeing what I love to do) was an awesome experience.

Brian Borgia was our wedding officiant on September 20th 2014. He was incredible! We wanted sone thing very nontraditional and straight to the point. He was beyond accommodating on every thing we wanted. He created a beautiful ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. He sent us exactly what he planned to say and asked us to let him know if we wanted to change anything..... we read it together and I was immediately brought to tears. It was perfect. In the few times we spoke to him he managed to gather who we were as individuals and as a couple. He really made ou r ceremony so so special. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Brian for anyone who needs an incredibly thoughtful and caring officiant to marry them. Thank You Brian!!!

Brian was absolutely wonderful to work with. We had met with him in person to get to know him better first before we made a decision. The moment we met him, we knew he was the one. Brian is not only extremely professional but he is also very funny and kind. We are so grateful to have had Brian officiate our wedding and would absolutely recommend him to any couple.

Brian was absolutely AMAZING!!! He was punctual and very accommodating! We live in Reno and he was so organized and efficient with his time and communications. I felt like he truly took the time with his questionnaire to get to know my husband and I and he created a ceremony that perfectly fit us! I loved that a couple days before our wedding he sent me a draft of the ceremony for any edits and changes to ensure we were satisfied. I would highly recommend Brian and his business to any one looking for a professional, punctual, and amazing officiant! Thanks again Brian!!! Maybe a vow renewal in 10 years?! :-)
