INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I am invited to assist couples wishing to have their weddings at hotels, country clubs, well known venues such as La Venta Inn, The Terranea, The Hyatt Regency, etc. as well as locations in the Wine Country, on the beach and at private residences.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I always adapt my attire to the wishes of the individual couple. I can wear 
 a dark suit, a suit and stole, or an alb and stole. Occasionally I am asked
 to be more casual e.g. aloha attire. I try to match my ties or vestments to the
 predominant color of the wedding.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! I do not use a set script but present my couples with various options from traditional vows to those who wish to be creative in writing
 their own personal vows.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes! I will offer suggestions as to length and quality as per my experience.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have samples of beautiful readings used with success at previous weddings but the couple to free to choose their own. The couple may wish to have a special reader to proclaim the reading/s. Sometimes readings are shared
 by two people.
How long are your ceremonies?
Usually my weddings are about one half hour in duration. This may vary depending on the number of attendants (entrance procession may take longer when there are many couples). When optional ceremonies are added, the time may be slightly longer.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require premarital counseling. My couples are offered two planning sessions with me. Some couples come only once to see me because of time, distance and work schedules. Other wish to have conference calls or "skype"
 calls.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
On occasion, I have done rehearsals. Most of the venues and/or couples wish to have the wedding coordinator conduct the rehearsal since they, in fact, are in charge of the total event. A rehearsal is a practice of the entrance procession and the placement of the attendants.
Do you supply a sound system?
I do not supply a sound system.

Rev Jabro was just wonderful. He met with us in his home (which was actually quite comfortable and inviting) and walked us through the entire process of creating a ceremony which is exactly what we wanted. He did not push any agenda, but stayed true to making it a personal ceremony. The day of the wedding, he spoke eloquently and clearly. I had multiple people comment on how much they enjoyed the officiant. He is very reasonably priced for the amount of work he puts in. I would absolutely recommend Rev Jabro to any couple looking for an offiant.

After talking to a couple of others, We called Rev Robert Jabro. He was nice and said if we do not use him Please go to his website as there is good info to help us. Then we met with him , My now wife Blanca said he is the one, he made us feel so at ease and felt good talking with him. Our wedding was perfect, we wished we would of done the video now as Rev Robert Jabro, did a wedding just for us and not reading from a book. He told how we met and about our names which everyone loved, The 2 wines being poured into one was different and no one had seen that before. We love him and Thank him for the Great job of making us Man & Wife

Reverend Robert Jabro is wonderful! He has a deep sense of beauty, and an ability to grasp the essence.
We had our wedding at the majestic La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes, where reverend is one of the vendors. Since the moment we first met him at his warm home office, we felt at ease as we knew right away - our wedding ceremony was in good hands. Not only he made our ceremony very personalized and memorable, but when my dear brother and our best man realized he'd left his tie at home, reverend Robert was very kind to loan him his and save the day.
To have reverend Robert Jabro handle your wedding ceremony is a blessing. His warmth, care and love shines through bringing the divine sense of God's presence at the altar…..

Reverand Bob married us earlier this month and we were very happy that we selected him. He was warm and welcoming from our very first meeting, and understood what type of ceremony we wanted. He kept the pace of the ceremony perfectly, incorporated personal details from our relationship and did a wonderful reading. Our guests all commented on how lovely the ceremony was. Reverand Bob will also take care of mailing in the marriage certificate for you, and we really did not have to do much other than meet with him initially to give him an idea of what we wanted, but of course, you can meet with him as many times as you wish. Thanks Reverand Bob!

Bob was a perfect fit for our wedding ceremony. We really wanted to personalize our ceremony and stay away from the traditional or cliche things. He was totally on board with that. He kept the length of the ceremony perfect, spoke with great sincerity and personalization, and helped things run smoothly. Everyone commented on what a great job he did. I'm so glad we choose him as our officiant!

We thought Reverend Jabro was a perfect officiant until he got to the part in the ceremony that was supposed to be about loving attributes we shared about each other (he asked both me and my husband to write these down for him). However, instead, he told an insensitive, insulting story about a fortune cookie company, in front of almost 300 Chinese guests and family. He also called me (the bride) "too sensitive these days" during the ceremony. Needless to say, we were embarrassed and insulted. We don't wish this on anyone else so please do not hire him!

Rev Robert Jabro responded with the following comments:

The terms "insensitive" and "insulting" are in contrast to the light-hearted comment about story of a message in a fortune cookie which stated "Happiness stands beside you!" It is clear that the message was not heard in its full intent or meaning. Many of the invited guests shared their delight with me after the ceremony. Sorry that this did not result in "Happiness" for this dear bride!
