Greetings! I'm Rev. Don Toshach with One-of-a-Kind Ceremonies. I'm committed to helping you make a lasting memory on one of the most important days of your life! I've received WeddingWire's Bride's/Couples Choice Award for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010. My passion is to help you create the meaningful and memorable centerpiece to your wedding day: Your ceremony. I collaborate with you to "capture your flavor" and personalize your wedding or renewal of vows according to your beliefs and wishes. I love serving couples as I have for more than 25 years as an ordained, nondenominational officiant. I'm friendly, approachable, and nonjudgmental, and people say that the weddings I conduct are personal, heartfelt. entertaining, fun and inspiring, whether religious or nonreligious. It's a crime for a wedding ceremony to be boring! Yes, I conduct weddings for couples from all backgrounds.

My wedding fees include everything, even my time and travel for the wedding and any appointments, so it is essential that I know your wedding date, start time, and location in order to give you my best quote. Contrary to a popular misconception, you're not hiring me for "20 minutes." I spend a great deal of time collaborating with you to make sure your customized ceremony exceeds your expectations, not to mention transit to and from appointments, preparation for your wedding ceremony before actually performing it, plus arriving early to your wedding and staying afterward to get your marriage license witnessed and completed.

I bend over backwards to keep my rates affordable, as I want you to walk away from your wedding feeling like you got a tremendous value by hiring me. Hey, I want you to refer me to your friends and co-workers because you were thrilled with the results! Again, please look at my excellent reviews from satisfied brides and grooms if you need any further evidence that I'm good at what I do.

I now primarily serve the Inland Empire, Temecula, Fallbrook, the greater San Diego area and the Coachella Valley (Palm Springs area and the rest of the desert), but I occasionally travel to the L.A. area, up north, or even out-of-state if I'm available and the arrangements work out. I do plenty of long-distance coordination with couples who live out-of-state. I look forward to your call or e-mail! Please do give me the date, time, and location of your wedding, which will help me to give you my best quote quickly! Read less

Rev. Don Toshach was amazing! He was extremely flexible and communicative during the whole planning process. He returned my called within a day of me initially contacting him. My husband and I chatted with him for a bit so he could get to know us, which was very important to him and us as well. We also exchanged many emails to make the ceremony perfect for us. He drafted our ceremony program right away and included details about our history and love story and was extremely understanding and helpful with any questions or changes we had. Unfortunately, I lost my father a month before my wedding, which was devastating to me and my family, and Rev Don changed our ceremony program so he could say a few words expressing our love for him. Our ceremony was beautiful and personal, as every wedding should be! He really customized our ceremony to us and our relationship. I really appreciated his use of heartfelt vows or love notes that we were able to say out loud to each other. Every guest at our wedding said that was a great touch! I cannot recommend Rev Don enough. He was great and I cannot imagine having anyone else as our wedding officiant!

Don went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect! Since ours was a destination wedding we never got to meet Don in person until our wedding day! I was very nervous about this but we felt like we knew him already when we finally got to meet in person! We had several phone conversations and he asked us tons of questions to get to know my groom and I prior to the ceremony!
Don put together such a wonderful and personalized ceremony! My guests loved him and told us they felt like he was part of the family! He is professional yet fun all at the same time! Don will make your wedding day a memorable one!

I love Don. He's so awesome and funny. He loves what he does and really takes the time to help you create your own special ceremony. He is very responsive and reasonable.

---UPDATE!!---
AMAZING! I want to marry my husband all over again just to have Don marry us! I can't even begin to explain just how funny he was. He sent over a script a while before the wedding and when it came to the day of the wedding, he added so much to it and it was perfect! I loved every second of my ceremony and laughed the whole way through because of Don. To this day, everyone at my wedding compliments Don and they all tell me that it was the most entertaining wedding they've ever been to! Our license was filed the night of the wedding and I didn't have to worry about anything going wrong.
I can't begin to thank Don enough for everything he did for us!

Brianna,
I've never gotten a review BEFORE I performed a couple's wedding, but thank you so much for your kind words. You and J.P. have been a joy to collaborate with throughout this whole process, and I'll very excited about what is sure to be a memorable ceremony 10 days from now. My best to you both during this final stretch!

Don was the best! Lucky we found him from a friend of a friend who had him as their officiant. We had waited to the last minute to find an officiant because we aren't religious and we didn't know where to start, we really wanted a friend to marry us but we didn't know of who to ask. Lucky for us it was the one date he had available in the spring and summer still! I sent him an email asking about his availability and he immediately got back to me, we talked on the phone for a few minutes and I expressed how I'd like to have a short meeting with him and my fiancee - we set up the meeting the next day since he was in town for a meeting with another couple. He followed up quickly with the information we need, and we set it up - everything was smooth and easy! Just what a frantic bride needs. The wedding went off perfectly, Don was kind, courteous, and very likable! We had so many people tell us how much they loved our ceremony and what a great job Don did. Everything was perfect, thanks so much Don!! Highly recommend!!

Don is absolutely AMAZING! Not only was he extremely responsive throughout the entire process, he made our wedding ceremony extremely personalized, well thought out and beautiful! He takes a great deal of pride in his ceremonies and the preparation he puts into them. And most importantly, he made us feel incredibly comfortable on the day of and during the ceremony! I truly felt like he was a friend and played such a significant role in making our ceremony perfect! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! Pick Don! :)

Lisa,
I loved working with you and David, and I'm thrilled that I helped you create a lasting memory. With the rain on wedding day, I was amazed by how the Wilson Creek Winery's Barrel Room was transformed into an intimate, romantic wedding setting. I wish you both the very best for your marriage, and hope we'll cross paths again someday soon.

From our first meeting with Reverend Don, my husband and I knew he was the perfect fit for us. He has a great personality and is very easy to talk to. We really had no idea what we wanted as far as the ceremony went but he was SO helpful. He doesn't push you in any particular direction. He finds out what is important to you and gives you suggestions and options.
At our wedding ceremony, he was of course fantastic. He kept the ceremony short and sweet (just like we wanted) and kept the tone light and upbeat. We had guests tell us they thought he did a great job. One even thought that he was someone we new personally, which I think says a lot. He also walks you through the wedding license process and makes sure you have all the right signatures in all the right places and even sends in the certificate for you. It was nice to know that part of it was taken care of and was one less thing to worry about.
If you're looking for someone to officiate your wedding, look no further. Reverend Don's the man! :)

Hannah,
You and Brandon are such a phenomenal match, and your wedding emphasized that all the more. The rustic indoor cabin setting at Longshadow Ranch ended up being the perfect backup after rain and the threat of rain moved the festivities inside. I'm sure your lives together will be rich and fulfilling. My best to you both!

My husband and I absolutely Love Love Love Reverend Don Toshach!! He has made our wedding planning as stress-free as possible and made our Wedding Ceremony Truly One of a Kind!! He told our story in the most heartwarming way that all of our guests couldn't help but cry. He also has a great sense of humor that made us and our guests laugh throughout the ceremony. He is definitely a breath of fresh air. We are so glad we chose him to officiate our wedding and would recommend him to anyone who is getting married anytime in the future.

I'm so grateful that you and Khoi found me on short notice from Las Vegas. Your wedding at the L.A. County Arboretum and Gardens was simply beautiful, and the fact that you pulled it all together long-distance is all the more astounding. I trust your marriage is going to be long and loving, and I look forward to seeing you both again the next time I'm in Vegas!

Don is by far the best officiant I have ever heard. He came highly recommended for my wedding and my wife and I are so glad we chose him. He makes the moment lively and warm. He brought humor to keep the tears back, but knew the right words to say to make everyone "aww". Don has my recommendation for anyone who wants a thoughtful, caring person to help them through their day!

Don was one of the preferred vendors for our venue, Los Willows. We gave him a call and he was very responsive in setting up an appointment with us to discuss our ceremony and what we were looking for in an officiant. He came to the venue to met with us after we met with our coordinator which made it really easy for us to kill two birds with 1 stone. Don is very personable and made me feel right at ease as he has a general outline for you to look at for your ceremony and he customizes from there. That made it much easier for us as we have never been married and had no idea how the ceremony was supposed to go! We were able to choose our own bible verses and he was really open to our suggestions about our love story. I will admit that my husband and I can be a little difficult as we are perfectionists so I really appreciated Don's patience with us as we sent him MULTIPLE drafts. I cannot tell you how many compliments we got from guests about the final outcome, most comments were "He was so lively and really kept us entertained!" Don spoke very eloquently and did exactly as we asked with his own twist! We really appreciated the effort he gave us and he was worth every penny!

Michelle,
I so much appreciate you and David, and the attention and passion you gave to collaborating with me with the ceremony. I never mind doing multiple drafts of ceremonies to make sure your ceremony is the very best it can be in fulfilling your wedding dreams. Your Facebook honeymoon pictures made me jealous, too. I look forward to seeing you both again one of these days!

My now wife and I searched high and low for a special officiant to be a part of our wedding. We had all the usual demands: someone who was sharp and kind, professional, could cater to our special requests and make the ceremony unique, and of course affordability is a plus. Reverend Don Toshach was a diamond in the rough and it was obvious after speaking with him the first time that he was exactly what a marriage officiant should be. He is incredibly responsive, usually responding to my email or texts before I could even put my phone back in my pocket. It made us both feel confident that we were a priority to him, and he remembers every detail while getting to know us as a couple in the months leading up to our big day. We sought pre-marital counseling with him as a foundation for our marriage, and it was immensely insightful. Rev. Don Toshach is a wise and gentle mentor and we're so glad he walked with us leading up to our marriage.

I highly recommend anyone get in touch with him to see what I mean, especially if you would like a stress-free ceremony that your guests will enjoy, as many of our guests complimented or voice of pastor (he's also very entertaining behind a microphone if you want him to be!) Thank you, reverend Don, for guiding us into a joy filled marriage!
