As we had most of our family in town for Thanksgiving, my fiancé (now husband), Troy and I decided to hold a surprise wedding in our back yard. We searched for a pastor and, based on other reviews, we contacted Ken. That was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We met with Ken prior to the wedding and he was so personable. On the wedding day, both Ken and his wife Penjo came to our house and we told our families to grab a chair because we were going to get married. Penjo actually captured their reactions on video, as well as a ton of beautiful pictures. For the ceremony, Ken eloquently told our story, weaving in how we met, the importance of faith and defining what "love" is. I would highly recommend Ken.

Ken was incredibly attentive in composing our ceremony and continually checking in with us months before our wedding to make sure everything was going smoothly or if we needed anything. The day of the wedding we actually had to move the ceremony right onto the beach as the park we had picked had two weddings at the same time. It was a perfect solution from Ken and created an intimate, beautiful ceremony for our small family gathering. Ken really made sure everything ran smoothly and we cannot thank him enough for an amazing day. Would highly recommend booking him for a stress free, joyful day.

Ken was an absolutely amazing pastor before and after our wedding. Our ceremony was so sweet and personal, my husband couldn't believe how well he knew our love story and intertwined it into our vows. Ken is knowledgeable and passionate about what he does and it shows!!! I would highly recommended him to anyone looking for a personal wedding ceremony.

Ken was great, he went over and above with our ceremony. He was in correspondence with us months before and asked us questions for which he personalized our vows. They were funny yet sentimental. I couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks ken!

Ken with Socal Vows was wonderful in our wedding! We didn't have a lot of time to get to know him in person as we were traveling from overseas for the wedding, but we emailed several times. He asked all the right questions and put together a wonderful and memorable ceremony. He gave us great direction to write our own vows and tailored it perfectly to our relationship and what we are looking forward to in our lives. We had multiple guests comment to us that they really liked the ceremony and his message. I would definitely recommend him!

OMG HIRE KEN!

I couldn't have asked more from Ken! He did an absolute amazing job officiating our wedding. He created the ceremony so uniquely personal and really captivated our audience to give them a sense of how my husband and I really came to love each other! Ken is extremely professional and carries such a wonderful energy. You will not regret this decision!

If you want to WOW your family, hire Ken. I had at least 5 different people come up to me after our ceremony and compliment me on my officiant, like when does THAT ever happen?!

He speaks so wonderfully in front of everyone, and so naturally and easily. Your families and friends want to hear about your love story and KEN IS THE PERFECT guy to tell it!

Ken created such a beautiful ceremony for us. It was romantic, personal, and he customized it to us in a way that had it feel unique. We did a handfasting and he incorporated it no problem. He checked in with us several times leading up to make sure we didn't forget anything. He even sent emails to help us write our vows. He did a fantastic job, I would highly recommend him if you're looking for an officiant.

Ken was absolutely amazing! ...My husband & I have only been to a couple of weddings throughout our lives so we had no idea what to do when it came to planning our own! We were so lucky to have Ken as our officiant because he was so helpful & kind & he even provided us with an suggestion outline of the ceremony as well as some other really helpful tips for our vows! We just had one minor hiccup (that wasn't Ken's fault) ...During our ceremony I realized I misplaced my brothers' bible reading but Ken quickly googled it on his phone for my brother to read & saved the day! Our ceremony turned out way better than I thought & our family & friends thought he was amazing too! So if you are in need of an officiant Ken is definitely your guy!

We just like to say thank you for everything thing again Ken you are awesome!

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. Castillo
