Having been involved in the Bay Area wedding industry for over 35 years, I bring a unique set of qualifications to every wedding that I do. Not only have I officiated weddings, I have DJ'd weddings, planned weddings, coordinated weddings, directed weddings, photographed weddings, videotaped weddings, eaten a ton of wedding food, eaten way too much wedding cake, smelled a few flowers and opened a few champagne bottles along the way! Let's face it, I love weddings!

I like to work with each Bride & Groom, making sure that their ceremony is ALL about them and respectful of their individual wishes and boundaries. Together we craft a celebration that helps make their dreams come true and one that you, and your guests, will remember! Building on that success and experience as a premier wedding vendor, I invited a select group of like-minded officiants to form "Officially Yours!!" Each officiant brings a unique set of skills and knowledge. And, we are all passionate about the wedding experience. Each of us is committed to making your wedding celebration one of the best days ever - for you and for those attending, as well! Every ceremony is uniquely centered around each couple and "represents" them as they commit to each other on their wedding day. Serving the Tri-Valley, San Francisco Bay Areas, and Northern California,, our ceremonies are personal, fun, and are about YOU! Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes
What is your attire for the ceremony?
i usually wear either a black or dark navy blue suit with, where possible, a tie that coordinates with the wedding colors.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. Each couple go though a workbook which, upon making their selections and providing their input, allows them to "control" or choose approximately 85% of what is said during their ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes - Absolutely!!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
A list of suggested readings is available. However each couple has the freedom to include readings not on the current list.
How long are your ceremonies?
Although my ceremonies can last anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes, my average ceremony is about 20 minutes long. Each Bride & Groom determines the length of their ceremony (within about 5 minutes).
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I am a certified as a Pre/Post Marital "Coach" through Prepare-Enrich (I don't call it "counseling" because I'm not looking for problems! As a "Coach", I come out to the field to help make you better and stronger!). Although I don't require Premarital training, I do highly encourage it as it increases each couple's chance of success by over 50%. It is up to each couple to decide if they want to invest the time and energy.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Where my schedule permits, I'm always happy to attend and participate in the rehearsal. Where my schedule does not permit, I am ALWAYS willing to meet with each Bride and Groom prior to their rehearsal to help them "pre-plan" their rehearsal.. Those notes are then made available to the couple and, if applicable, their corrdinator/director.
Do you supply a sound system?
No

My bride and I were married by Derrick on 6/27. Great ceremony. Just as we requested. Prior to the event we met with Steve to go over our upcoming event. His wedding book made it so much easier to agree on exactly what was going to be said during our event. All and all a pleasure to work with these gentlemen.

Steve married us on June 27, 2014 and he was fantastic. He truly has a gift for what he does and our ceremony was so great because of him.
He originally wasn't available on our wedding date which was disappointing but when he became free, I was so excited. Our ceremony was so special to us, it flowed nicely and we got many compliments on it from our guests, everyone thought it was perfect.
If we ever renew our vows I would not want to do it without Steve, he is terrific! I highly recommend him and Officially Yours!

Steve did an amazing job, and made our ceremony better than we ever imagined! Using easy to follow forms and a casual meeting a few months before our wedding day, Steve was to able to create a custom ceremony that exceeded all of our expectations. Our friends and family couldn't stop talking about how perfect our ceremony was. Steve was super reliable, professional, and calmed our nerves throughout the ceremony. He is a true professional and skilled at his craft.

Thanks Steve!! Absolutely Incredible! Words can not express the gratitude my husband and I have for Steve for performing our ceremony on our special day! Breathtaking! We have received so many compliments already about our wedding ceremony, just last night. \\r\\n\\r\\nWhile Steve can be a little hard to get in touch with at times, being so busy running this operation, :) He is absolutely worth it. He will make sure you have the wedding of your dreams, the way that you want it. He doesn\\\'t have his own agenda, gives you endless recommendations when asked and comes with years of incredible knowledge. He will meet you anywhere, as many times needed, to make sure your absolutely comfortable with your day. When we met Steve there was no doubt that this man would be perfect for us. And on our wedding day, he met with us privately, went through the ceremony, and made sure we knew exactly what we were about to do. \\r\\n\\r\\nHe made our ceremony interactive, drew from knowledge of our conversations, and had light humor with us, knowing we would enjoy that. He matched our ceremony with his tie, and was so professional. You would be lucky, blessed and privileged to have Steve perform your wedding celebration. He is simply the Best!!

One of the key elements of a wedding is the actual ceremony. And one of the key elements of a wedding ceremony is your officiant. You want them to have a specific feeling and as the couple, you need to be comfortable with them.

My husband and I married at the Benicia Arsenal this past July and Anthony Patterson with Officially Yours was our officiant. He was the perfect choice for us.

Anthony is calm and knows his stuff. He helped talk us through the whole process . Also, when talking to us he seemed kind which for us was important.

He met with us multiple times in preparation as we developed our ceremony structure and was always quick to respond to my emails. he came to our rehearsal and helped us get everything just perfect so that on the wedding day, it all went off without a hitch! Thank you Anthony and Officially Yours for making our day so special. ~ Michael & Corina

Steve was an absolute joy to work with! He gave my husband and me a beautiful ceremony, filled with so much love and lots of laughs. We received so many compliments from our guests about Steve's officiating, and many of them thought we'd known him forever! Steve took time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple, and it surely came through in our ceremony. He also provided a very helpful workbook to help guide us through creating the ceremony that was perfectly tailored to us. When I met Steve he told me that he likes to set the benchmark for what a wedding ceremony should be, and boy, did he deliver! I'm so thrilled that Steve was able to share his gift with us on our special day!!

Steve officiated our granddaughters wedding for us earlier this month. What a great job he did. We had a small wedding in a park, but he treated it like a full blown affair in a cathedral. Steve was so attentive and handled every little detail. We had so many compliments from the family and friends that attended. Steve spent time talking to my granddaughter to ask exactly what SHE wanted and delivered that and more. He had the perfect combination of humor, seriousness and great scriptures and wisdom. Thank you so much, Steve. You helped provide a perfect day for our granddaughter and new grandson.

We were able to select each piece of the ceremony to fit our style. Anthony did an awesome job of making it personal and added some humor at appropriate times. Several people said it was the best ceremony they had been to. Steve is extremely personable and professional. He is passionate about what he does and very organized.

He was wonderful! He provides everything you need for your ceremony to be exactly what you want it to be. He made us laugh and cry (the good kind of cry of course). All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed him. I HIGHLY recommend giving him a call! If you are looking for experience, then he is your man.

Steve, you are SO SO SO GREAT! Everyone loved you! When we first met you gave us a very organized binder of all the steps we needed to know or do. I really enjoyed that and shows that you truly love what you do. I felt like we could customize what we said or wanted to do that felt special to us. You made the guests feel right at home and very comfertable. If you ever need anything or need anyone to design weddings...were here for you :) You are more than our officiant..you are our friend. Do not hesitate to have Steve Siglin marry you...I give Weddings by Steve an A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++!!!!

If you're looking for an officiant for your wedding, look no further! We feel extremely fortunate to have met Steve…he is absolutely AMAZING!!! He took the time to get to know us and guided us through the entire planning process. Steve understood we wanted something light-hearted, but very personal at the same time. We were given the freedom to personalize the ceremony to reflect who we were as a couple. He was able to deliver a ceremony that exceeded our expectations. Not only were we very pleased, but also our guests are still raving about the perfect balance of intimacy and humor he brought to our ceremony. Steve did an absolutely fabulous job! We will miss the time we spent together, but we also feel extremely blessed to now call him a friend!

Steve was great!!! He was funny and made it simple to remember our vows as we recited them back to each other. I had told him to speak slowly...and give me small "bites" because I was afraid I'd be nervous. Turns out I wasn't, but it was perfect. Everyone asked me later if we knew him because it felt very personal and humorous. I have seen some photos and we're actually laughing during the ceremony. It was awesome! We had only met Steve twice before the ceremony, but it felt very comfortable and am so glad he was our officiant. Friends of ours liked him so much they are going to hire him for their 20 year annivesary vow renewal. Quite a compliment, I think!

Steve was great to work with. He provided a workbook with loads of ideas for what to include in the ceremony that we customized to our taste and preferences. He had lots of suggestions for what he has seen work and what didn't.... And had done loads of weddings at our venue, so it made it so easy. We were very comfortable with Steve.

I don't have the words to express my happiness and gratitude towards Steve. We weren't sure what to expect or what our role was besides a bride and groom. Once we met with Steve we realized how much we did not know. Steve made it easy for us by providing us with lots of information and resources, but most importantly he made it personal. I love that he shared some of his own personal experiences that for me were inspiring as my husband and I were about to embark on a new journey as husband and wife. We have three kids and they were a big part of our ceremony in fact they were the bridal party besides my husbands best friend and my best friend and my kids were touched by the words of wisdom that Steve shared with our friends and family. Our life has finally come to a completeness circle and I am glad Steve was a part of completing that circle. If and when we renew our vows we would want Steve Sigling as our Officiant and no one else.

Steve was perfect, he made the process easy and fun, his work book made finding the right vows and words in no time at all. Everyone at the wedding commented how Steve was funny at the right time and made the whole wedding a great experience. I "forgot" to take the Marriage Cert with me on the actual day and Steve made a long trip back to the golf course the next weekend just to sign the paperwork for us. If you are looking for some one to do you wedding GET STEVE! You can't go wrong... I'm sending my friends to him.. Thanks STEVE :-)

Looking back now we are so grateful we had Steve as our wedding officiant. we found Steve almost by chance thanks to some reviews online. so now we are giving back to online community so future couples would benefit. Steve happened to be still available for our date which was only a month away. we scheduled an interview which he passed with A++. Steve left us instant impression with his genuine smile, sense of humor, professionalism, attention to details, and his real life words of wisdom. That meeting took about an hour and half with him mostly answering our questions and providing feedback and even going into the details of how to receive the bride from the dad, how to hold hands and exchange rings so it looks elegant without being clumsy. After that meeting we just communicated over the emails and phone (by choice) without any trouble before meeting again on rehearsal date. He gave us a workbook to work on which include useful suggestions of various wordings, flows and program templates for different ceremony types. we used it as a baseline then edit/add anyhow to our like and sent back to him. He would use it as the guideline for the ceremony and improvise on the day of. On the big day, Steve was punctuate, looked sharp and totally in command of. He definitely put us and all the guests at ease with many laughters by his sincerity, wit, and humor. Many relatives and friends praised Steve is the best officiant they've seen of and they really had a blast. we couldn't agree 101% more. He even sent us a Christmas card later in the year. Thank you Steve for being the best at what you do.

Steve was so sweet to give up some precious time on Christmas Day, to come and perform our ceremony. We surprised our family by handing out Christmas Cards/Invitations, as soon as Steve gave us the call letting us know he was outside. The looks on everyone's faces when they read the invitation was priceless! "Wait,,,that's today??!!" It was a beautiful ceremony, co-written by us with Steve's help, and it was just perfect. We could not have asked for a better day!
Thank you Steve!

It was great to work with Steve, he is laid back, funny and has a TON of experience with weddings and marriage. He is willing to make your ceremony into anything you want, from uber religious to completely civil, so that is great. You also can customize your vows or pick from the options in the binder he gives you. We had some trouble meeting up the first time, but once we got on the same page everything was good from there. Our ceremony was beautiful and Steve did a great job!
