Leslie is the best! She is super sweet and friendly, and has amazing ideas on what will make your ceremony extra special and unique. I have difficulties with officiants who would only do religious ceremonies, but she was totally accommodating to my more "spiritual," non religious beliefs and found a way to incorporate those in. She made everything so easy, not just with all of the details of the ceremony but also with taking care of the marriage license. Leslie is very detail oriented and punctual, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Leslie made our wedding perfect. We never met face-to-face until the big day, since I am in San Francisco and she is located in Orange County, but we communicated constantly by phone and email to build a ceremony that was uniquely us and still included the traditions of our respective families (mine Protestant, his Jewish). Everything time I thought something was an emergency, Leslie knew exactly how to handle it with a grace and aplomb you rarely find these days. She was invaluable not just for the ceremony, but for helping me work with my family and smooth ruffled feathers. She calmed every fear and really helped with the isolation that can sometimes come with wedding planning. No matter what happened, I had her in my corner, and she came through 100%.

Leslie is a true gem! She was the officiant for my friend's wedding that I was a bridesmaid in and I absolutely sold with Leslie when I watched her marry my friends. When we met with Leslie one-on-one to go over details and how everything was going to work, she made us feel so comfortable - it felt as if a family member or good friend was marrying us. Her soft, caring and loving voice makes the ceremony even that more meaninful. I met with several other officiants and nobody else made me feel that warm and fuzzy feeling the way Leslie did. She has such a beautiful charm about her - - - that is what you want for your special day! Her special readings during the ceremony made me tear up. Leslie is an amazing officiant - I highly recommend her.

When it came to picking an officiant we couldn't have done better than Rev. Leslie Bockian. From our first meeting we absolutely adored her. Very personable, very warm and obviously enjoys what she does and it shows. At our first meeting we were there for two hours and it seem to fly by. We chatted it up like we were old friends. She had performed several weddings at our venue, and she shared some humorous stories about those weddings. She gave us a lot of materials to read over which helped us prepare for the most meaningful ceremony. It was important that our ceremony be meaningful but not lengthy. She took all of that into account. We are a very nontraditional couple and we wanted our ceremony to reflect that. And it did. She gave us guidance on all our out of the ordinary requests for our ceremony. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful and touching it all was. My husband and I have Leslie to to thank for it. Bonding with an officiant is very important aspect of planning a wedding. And having worked with such wonderful woman my husband and I can say because of our bond to Leslie we had the best wedding ever. We can't thank her enough. Hiring Leslie will be one of the best decisions you can ever made.

Leslie did a wonderful job with our ceremony! She has a wonderful demeanor and was very helpful with things like wedding ceremony ideas, marriage license questions, etc. She’s extremely accommodating, whether you want to write down exactly what you want her to say, or have her come up with something just for you. We wrote our own vows based on suggestions she had, then Leslie took the time to get to know us and filled in the rest of the talking with a tone that perfectly suited us! We highly recommend her:)

Two years after our wedding, we still think all the time about how lucky we were to find Leslie. We spoke with many, many officiants--all much more expensive--and we just weren't impressed by anyone. We were just about to give up when we found Leslie, and it turned out that she was heaven-sent!

We loved so many things about our wedding but, truly, SHE made the whole thing as special as it was. Her warmth, humor, intelligence and--yes, sentimentality--made our service so memorable. We were so impressed when we met with her to help us plan our service; we truly felt there was nothing she wouldn't have done to make our day unique and thrilling, and she absolutely listened to us and heard what we wanted. She went back and forth with us a number of times, offering to meet or discuss as often as needed. Our marriage was interfaith, and she turned what could have been a difficulty into a very special melding of cultures and faiths.

We continue to be touched by the fact that Leslie still thinks of us and reaches out to us every now and then to see how we are. She loves what she does and that's why she is the best!!! What a special human being.

After a 26-year courtship the last thing we wanted in a wedding ceremony was a big hoopla. Somehow, Leslie managed to create a loving, memorable atmosphere, perfectly attuned to our taste, with very little to work with. She is obviously terrific at what she does because we celebrated our tenth anniversary last year. I would recommend her to any couple who wants someone who can accommodate their needs and put a little magic into their relationship. A very special person for that special day!
