My name is Christine De La Rosa, I'm a native from Ventura County and I'm an ordained Officiant (non-denominational) by Universal Life Church. I believe a wedding ceremony is a significant event in the lives of two people to celebrate their love, unity and the beginning of a new life together. Your wedding day should be unique and memorable. Lastly, I believe your wedding ceremony experience should guide you into a lifetime of love, peace, happiness and joy with your partner! It's YOUR wedding. It should be done in the way YOU have always dreamed it would be. This has been a great blessing for me to participate in the most important day of a bride and groom.


When you grant me the honor of being your wedding officiant, I will provide you with exceptional service with a personal touch. An initial meeting for us to get to know one another, communication through phone and e-mail. Assistance with finding or custom-designing the prefect vows to express your personal feelings. Contact me today at 805-947-6460 or email: weddingbychristine@aol.com Read less

Christine is fantastic! She says she loves what she does, and it really shows. She was very caring, intuitive, and responsive. We were planning our wedding from the easy coast and were able to go through everything with her ahead of time via skype and email.
The ceremony itself was beautiful - my husband and I couldn't have been happier!

Christine was an amazing officiant! She was very professional and made herself available to us for when we had any questions and/or or concerns about our big day. We especially enjoyed the fact that she ran through the entire process with us during our rehearsal and put us at ease when it came to our nerves. She was very supportive throughout the entire process and was very excited about our big day.

Christine was perfect. She made my ceremony exactly what I had wanted. She told us from the get go that this wedding was about us and what we wanted it to be. She made everything easier. She is super nice and sweet. She also starts you off with a sample ceremony packet if you don't want to write up your own but she allows you to write up your own if you'd like. She is also really affordable. I really cant say enough good things about her she really is great.

Christine was such a pleaduse to work with. She was attentive to all our needs. Every time I needed to reach her on the phone, she was available. After the wedding the registrars office sent us a letter saying that they hadn't received our marriage license so I phoned Christine right away. She made all the proper phone calls to their office and found out that our marriage license was on its way and that the letter was a mistake. That was truly a relief. I would recommend her as your wedding officiant 100%!

Christine was Amazing!! From the day my fiancé and I met her I knew she was going to be the one to marry us. She was quick in respoding to my emails and if she was busy with another event she made sure to let me know that she would be responding to my emails as soon as she was available. She gave us samples of ceremonies so that my fiancé and I would make it our own and had no problem making either traditional or non-traditional. It was important that my fiancé and I had our ceremony to the way we wanted it to be because it was our day and Christine had no problem in doing so. I really appreciate the fact that she was able to put up with the wedding coordinator from hell at my venue....so sorry Christine. Christine kept reminding me that it was my wedding and if I didn’t like the way the coordinator was arranging things to make sure I say something. Thank you for being very patient, I really appreciate that. The day of the wedding I had a minor last minute change and she had no problem with that. I gave her the names of the witnesses and she took care of that and even took my marriage license to the county which was a huge relief for us. If you are looking for a minister I would highly recommend Christine she was amazing. Thank you again!

Christine was wonderful! She provided us with samples of prior ceremonies she performed for us to design our own ceremony. It was about my husband and I, not read from a script. She also helped coordinate our wedding in regards to directing the guests to the ceremony site (our wedding was held at a beach/park, the park area is where the guests first assembled). She has great ideas and suggestions and has vendors to refer you to. Most important though, she cares!

I highly recommend Christine.

From the moment I met Christine, I knew she was the right person to perform our ceremony. She was warm, helpful, and shared our vision from the very begining. She was able to give us ideas to make the ceremony perfect and also unique. She provided us with sample ceremonies from which we were able to put together a ceremony that worked for us. On the evening of the rehearsal she was early (perfect!) and had no problem inplementing our last minute requests. After the ceremony, the guests had nothing but positive things to say. They called her delivery "sincere and heart felt". She also included a moment of acknowledgement of my father (no longer with us) and both my mother and step mother thought it was done with grace and beautifully said. I can't recommend Christine enough...it was a perfect ceremony!

Christine was a wonderful officiant. She took the time to meet with us once before we decided to hire her as our minister, and she showed us all her sample ceremonies and talked us through how the day would go. As soon as we met with her we both knew we wanted to hire her! She was very warm and friendly, and open to what we both wanted.

She came to the rehearsal which was very nice, it really helped calm our nerves to see how the ceremony would really go with her being there.

She arrived early to both the rehearsal and wedding day, and she hand delivered our marriage license forms to the court for us. We didn't have to worry about anything!

Overall we had an excellent experience with her (and for a very fair price), and I will recommend her to anyone I know getting married in Ventura County!

Thanks Christine!

Christine is wonderful! The first time I spoke with her, she made me feel very comfortable. After she visited us for the first time we felt as we had known her for a long time. She was willing to help with a variety of things. She gave us samples of vows to view, which we used some, and changed some to make it more "us". We wanted to mention the blending of our families, along with our son. She was quick to take what I gave her, and send it back to us all completed.
At rehearsal, and at the ceremony she was very helpful. She helped the men put their boutonnieres on. She also gave great suggestions on poses to take for wedding pictures.
I wanted someone that would be a part of our wedding, not someone we just "hired" to perform our ceremony. Andy, and I both agreed she "shared" our day with us, and she is truly amazing. I highly recommend her!!!!

Christine,

Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful ceremony. You were so helpful with the little details which enhanced our day and quelled our nerves. All of our guests mentioned at some time during the day how well everything went. Additionally, we didn't expect you to help with photo suggestions, etc. Thank you so much for that added touch. We are so grateful that we found you for this day. We feel so lucky. Thanks again!

Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful ceremony. You were so helpful with the little details which enhanced our day and quelled our nerves. All of our guests mentioned at some time during the day how well everything went. Additionally, we didn't expect you to help with photo suggestions, etc. Thank you so much for that added touch. We are so grateful that we found you for this day. We feel so lucky. Thanks again!

When my husband and I met Christine, we already new she would be the right officiant for our wedding. She is curtious, negotiable, very nice and punctual. She made our wedding memorable and lovely. I strongly reccommend her. Thank you Christine! :)

If you want your wedding to be all that you ever wanted Christine would have to be the best of the Officiate around. Christine helps to make things go so smoothly. We really enjoyed her and really appreciate all that she did. She was so flexible and helpful with the vows. We really enjoyed doing the sand ceremony. I was really nervous and at the rehearsal she made those last minute jitters disappear. My wedding party made so many comments of how Christine made it feel so special. We are so happy with our choice and many other couple feel the same. Thank you once again for your services.

Christine was amazing... she made ALL of Rudy & My dreams come true. She's extremly helpful and even helps at that little "calming the nerves" part =o) Whenever I needed to talk to her, I had NO trouble getting ahold of her... and she's there whenever you need her. If I had all that money to spend again to get married... I'd have her do it all again... see you in a few years when it's time to renew our vows! Thanks Christine! You were amazing!

My wedding in April 2007 was Christine's first ceremony conducted but you would never know it! She was so professional while at the same time very personable and friendly. She helped me during the whole planning process with suggestions and with calming my nerves. Although our wedding was over 5 years ago, my husband and I are still asked for the name of the Officiant at our wedding. We wrote our own vows because I wanted our vows to be funny and include personalized items. Christine TRULY lets/assists you customize your ceremony.

I needed an early AM surprise vow renewal ceremony on a Wednesday and from the moment that I contacted her until the end of the ceremony; Christine was professional, interested, excited and motivated to help me pull the surprise off perfectly. I had no idea what the vows would be other than a few parameters but she effortlessly put together some text and emailed it to me that perfectly stated the feelings and emotions that I wanted to express. She is a wonderful officiant and I would highly recommend that you take advantage of any opportunity that you might have to utilize her services. You will feel a connection to her on your special day!

Christine performed our ceremony on April 26, 2014, and made it a very memorable experience. I especially appreciated her calming effect during my stress spiral! She was very flexible during all my different ideas and change of mind. Having a bilingual touch was special for us. Thank you, Christine!

Christine was amazing. It was apparent how much this job means to her. She helped craft vows for us that fit us perfectly. She guided us through our rehearsal and was so supportive. She was very organized and had everything ready for us that we needed. She also made sure to explain everything to us that we needed and why. I would definitely recommend her to other people getting married.

I found christine in an ad on Craigslist. I emailed her and got a very quick response and was able to meet her the next week. She was very open to make my wedding exactly what I wanted. She provided me with a wedding booklet (at no extra cost) that not only provided me with vows and ceremony ideas, but with ideas and tips for my wedding as a whole. It was extremely helpful and useful to me. Whenever I called or emailed her she was very quick to response. She was professional and provided me with excellent service. She made our wedding exactly what I wanted. When I had a little issue with the marriage license (my fault, not hers) she went out of her way to help me fix the problem!!! A+++++ service, highly recommened,
