With only 4 months until our wedding, my (now) husband & I were stressing out about finding an officiant. I'll admit that his perfect rating seemed out of the ordinary (which I now know is extremely justified), but we decided to contact him. We emailed Jon on a Thurs night & Jon replied to our email early Fri morning! We wanted to ask Jon some questions before we put down a deposit, he offered to meet up w/us or talk over the phone. Since Jon is based in Long Beach & we're in Ontario we opted for the phone conference. Jon was very thorough while outlining his services and answered ALL of my questions. By the end of our conversation we had decided that Jon was the officiant for us. Once our contract was signed, Jon had us fill out a worksheet that helped him create a personalized ceremony for us. Once Jon received our worksheet, we met up @ his church in Long Beach to go over all the details of our ceremony. Being that this was the first time either of us was getting married, I was stressing out about how our wedding party would enter/walk down the aisle. Jon quickly put my worries to ease as he helped us plan that out. We also opted to do the Premarital Coaching which was very educational and fun (HIGHLY RECOMMEND). Needless to say, we both left the meeting feeling 110% assured that our ceremony was in good hands.
On our wedding day, Jon arrived early (he came all the way from LB to Pomona!) & ready to help w/ whatever he could.As far as our ceremony...WOW! We couldn't have imagined a more beautiful ceremony. Jon really did blow us away w/ every detail. He also paid tribute to family members that are no longer w/us (at our request) which we really appreciated. Many of our guests that our ceremony was beautiful & I couldn't agree more! It was definitely one of the highlights of our day. As w/ many brides, there are certain things I wish we could have done a little differently for our wedding day but choosing Pastor Jon was a decision we do not regret!

This review is a bit overdue but Pastor Jon deserves 10 stars. My wife and I got married in December and he really came through for us. If you're looking for a great officiant to deliver professional and thorough service to help prepare you for your wedding and make the big day special, you definitely need to call this man. He took the time to learn about us and what we wanted. A cool and down-to-earth guy and he takes great pride in his work. He offers a wide range of approaches, from very traditional/religious to more casual, and he will tailor a gameplan to fit just what his clients are looking for in their ceremony. He can help you customize your vows if you want, and gives you freedom in choosing how you want things to go. He has a nice sense of humor and he had our guests laughing at the ceremony. Best of all he is responsive, returning phone calls and answering emails quickly.

If it wasn't for Jon our wedding wouldn't have gone as it did. He was definitely my go to guy on the day of. We had to move our ceremony to an indoor venue at the last minute due to predicted rain and I was concerned the transition might be a little hectic. But Pastor John came through for us; he and I tweaked our gameplan a little and we ended up finishing on time and it went so great. Guests are still telling us how special the ceremony was. i constantly relive the big day in my head and Pastor Jon was a huge factor in the experience. He's a great guy, a great pastor and I highly recommend him.

Pastor Jon was the perfect officiant. He exceeded our expectations and gave us the perfect wedding ceremony. Pastor Jon customized our ceremony to include everything we wanted. He is professional and helpful in guiding you through the wedding process. He also is quick to respond if anything needs to be addressed or changed. Several of our friends have also requested his information for their upcoming nuptials because they were very impressed. I fully recommend him!

Jon married us in September 2014. I looked at a few officiants at the time and actually none of them quite fit the profile. I wanted someone who looked the part, had a strong yet humble personality, had presence, well-spoken -- and no one quite fit the bill until I found Jon. I was so relieved when he told me he was available for my wedding date because I really had no other person I can see marrying us. I guess I can be quite a picky person :). I was also very impressed by how organized he was. He included a worksheet for us to fill out and he used that to prepare an order of ceremony for us and we did not have to worry about anything. He went over the ceremony with us over the phone a few weeks before the wedding and put us at ease. We felt very confident in him and it really helped with our wedding nerves. Jon made our ceremony go very smoothly and he was just perfect! Our ringbearer was supposed to walk off to get seated but he did not do that and actually stood right next to me during the entire ceremony haha and at certain times he kind of squealed and squirmed around but that did not phase Jon and at all and he kept very composed and professional throughout. Believe it or not getting the right officiant trumps should really be one of your top 5 wedding to do items. It can make or break your ceremony! I highly recommend Jon!

Pastor Jon was a pleasure to work with!!! Planning a wedding is VERY stressful and his calm demeanor made the process very easy! He listened to the requests my husband and I both had and was able to customize the ceremony to our liking. We both have different religious beliefs and we weren’t sure how it was going to work but Pastor Jon was able to make it compliment both of our wishes. He was on time, responded to my e-mails within 24 hours and was just an amazing addition to our wedding. We couldn’t have pictured the ceremony any other way. Thank you Pastor Jon for all your contributions and support!!! You made my wedding an enjoyable one and helped create memories that will last a lifetime.

We are grateful that Pastor Jon officiated our wedding two weeks ago. We wanted our ceremony to be treated with the seriousness that it warranted but also to be a little entertaining. Pastor Jon went over different possible scenarios, made helpful suggestions on ceremony details, and helped us with planning so that we knew what to expect. He was also able to officiate a ceremony to appeal to extended family members coming from all kinds of religious backgrounds. We loved Pastor Jon's relaxed style and would like to give him extra credit for officiating in the middle of a hot June afternoon without missing a beat :). We would readily recommend his services to any of our family or friends.

I found Pastor Jon via yelp last minute before our wedding. I waited too long to find an officiant and was in a pinch, I met with Pastor Jon two weeks before our wedding and immediately knew that he was our guy! He is very professional and has the whole process very detailed and streamlined. It was super easy and just what we needed since we were stressed out with everything else going on. On the wedding day everything went perfect and we were beyond pleased with the job he did! He nailed it! Even people that attended the wedding were asking where we found him and commented on how great of a job he did. I would def recommend Pastor Jon to anyone looking for a great officiant! Thanks again Jon!

I can't stop raving about my wedding this past January. My ceremony couldn't have been more perfect. Pastor Jon gave such a beautiful ceremony our guests kept commenting on how special it was. Not only was Pastor Jon kind and professional but he also made me feel at ease during stressful moments. He personalized our ceremony which made it special and memorable. Pastor Jon left a lasting impression on our guests, they actually thought he knew us from our past or knew our family. I would absolutely recomment Pastor Jon to future brides, you will not be disappointed.
