Congratulations on your upcoming wedding or renewal! Since 2009, I have officiated over 375 weddings and have enjoyed every minute of it. This is your special day, and my job is to write a beautiful ceremony that you, and your guests, will remember and enjoy. Over the past 7 years, I have officiated weddings from Santa Cruz to Big Sur, from Monterey to Pacific Grove and everywhere in between.

As a non-denominational wedding officiant, I will work with you to create the exact ceremony that you want. I am always available to answer any questions – even if it is just about the area or other local vendors. I have been involved with weddings since 1989, lived in the area since 1993, and have enjoyed providing memorable wedding experiences as an officiant and planner. Since 2011, I have been named as one of the top 5% wedding officiants in Monterey County. One of the things that makes me stand apart from other officiants is that I have also assisted in planning over 100 weddings.

I can be reached through the contact page or by email at brian@montereybayweddingofficiants.com or by phone at
831-601-1650. Thank you and happy planning! Read less

Brian was great! I actually found him online with Weddings in Monterey when planning my beach wedding as a "back-up" plan because the company I had been working with was not getting back to me very quickly. He was very patient and answered my millions of questions and asked me to get back to him if I ended up hearing from the other company (which I did and opted to move forward with them instead). He didn't stop helping me there though... he asked if we had an officiant and I told him we didn't and he mentioned he was an approved officiant in the vendor list for the company we went with and would be available on that day. Since I didn't have one, and would likely have flipped a coin to pick one, I was thrilled at having one less thing to worry about in all the planning! He also sent me a bunch of useful information without request which included how and when to obtain our marriage license, etc., which was information we needed and didn't have at the time so it was VERY helpful. He even recommended the florist we used who were AMAZING as well (Swenson & Silacci). The ceremony itself and the script Brian put together for our ceremony was perfect for us! We only have great things to say about Brian Borgia! You cannot go wrong using him!

Brian was great! We also hired his wife to do photography. They made an excellent team. He married us at the end of last month on a beautiful hidden beach in Carmel, CA. We used his recommendation for the location! Since we live in another State, he met with us over Skype ahead of time to go over the process and get to know us. He is professional and his execution is flawless.

We selected Brian to be our wedding officiant for our small ceremony at Fanshell Beach on the 17 mile Drive Monterey on May 21, 2016! From the very beginning upon our first contact with Brian via phone and email, we knew we made the right decision! Brian was very professional, kind, thoughtful and incredibly helpful in assisting us in selecting our wedding venue, flowers, photography, etc., and he wrote and delivered such a "beautiful" personalized ceremony for our special day. Brian was very quick to respond to any questions and/or needs throughout our wedding planning and he also took the time to personally meet with us to go everything prior to our actual wedding day. We are beyond pleased with Brian's services and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, warm, caring and incredibly kind wedding officiant! Thank you Brian!

This January we had a small wedding for 15 people in Monterey and we hired Brian to officiate. It was the best decision ever! We are from Sacramento but wanted to get married in Monterey. Brian went out of his way to help us with great advice about a reception place, and the best hotels around the area. My flowers were ordered exactly as the picture I sent as an example and it was a beautiful bridal bouquet. I also got advice were to find my hair and make-up stylists and was very happy with my results.
He was great at speaking, keeping the audiences’ attention and making our day memorable.
Brian’s wife Heidi was our photograph and it was so much fun to work with her! It was a great and friendly photo session and beautiful pictures which we received in a timely manner.
Although we never met in person till the actual wedding day, Brian was very professional and easy to work with over the email/phone. He was very fast to respond and answer all the questions and concerns we had. We couldn’t be happier that we used Brian and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for the perfect officiant.
