I'll be honest.....upon first hearing about the White Robed Monks I was a bit hesitant, as it sounded too good to be true. Looking for an officiant for our September wedding in Sonoma was overwhelming, as my husband and I haven't had a religious official in our lives and weren't totally sure what we were looking for. As soon as we met Gerald, our stresses were instantly put at ease. Prior to the wedding day, we met with Gerald to discuss how we envisioned the ceremony going, and we actually had a lot of holes to fill, which Gerald did easily. The day of, Gerald made our ceremony so special and although we aren't a very religious couple, the mentions of faith that Gerald made were also tailored to us a as a couple. We feel very blessed to have had Gerald be such an integral part of our special day, and we would highly recommend him and the services of the White Robed Monks for any couple.

Father Robert Dittler was amazing! He was hip, modern, short, and funny. Everything we were looking for in an officiant! He was extremely helpful and provided many tips for us. He was like a second wedding planner for us. Father Robert was thorough and ensured that all parties of the wedding party knew their places during the rehearsal and, more importantly, the wedding.

Don't let the location of Pleasanton confuse you. The White Robed Monks are in various communities in the bay area. We had Father Skip for my daughter's wedding in Santa Rosa. Fr. Skip lives and works north of the bay. I can not say enough what a wonderful experience it was to work with Fr. Skip. He was there for rehersal and was such an asset with a great sense of humor and experience. He put the bride and groom to ease right away. He was early arriving and made an impression on our venue's staff. For the wedding he was wonderful!!! Our guest were so impressed with him. We loved that he stayed for a while and talked with the guests. The White Robed Monks do not charge for their services but we were more than happy to give a donation to this great order. Thank you Fr. Skip for a wonderful wedding!

We had Reverend Robert Dittler and we loved him! Everybody loved him. He’s funny, easy-going, on time, a great director. He returns phone calls and e-mails promptly. He came to our rehearsal and showed everyone what to do. He was wonderful and he is another vendor who I cannot say enough good things about. Grade: A+

We can not thank Father Richard enough for all that he did for us. With our unique family came unique requests and he made it the most beautiful service. Everyone was crying.

Robert was so much fun to work with and gave us such a wonderfully charasmatic and warm ceremony. He grabbed everyone's hearts that day. The ceremony could not have been more perfect and personalized to us.

Our officiant was Father Gerald Caprio, we had a traditional catholic ceremony. He has very nice and understanding since day one. He worked with us to make our destination wedding possible. We were very pleased with his service.

They were amazing! My now husband is in the military was not able to come home at all in the six months before the wedding. This proved to be difficult for finding an officiant. All of the officiants required pre-marital counseling and/or a retreat. This was not an option for us due to the fact that my husband was in Virginia. I met with our officiant a few times prior to the wedding, but they did not require us to do counseling. They were also great about customizing the ceremony so that it fit us and was totally what we wanted. I am from a Catholic background and my husband is not but we were able to take Catholic elements and put them into our ceremony.

Reverend Ariosto Coelho is sweet and comprenhensive. The way it works is that you submit a form with the white monks and then the reverend calls you (depending on your area). Rev. Ariosto called me and set up some time to meet with us. We live down south and he tried finind a way to meet us at Burbank! That was very nice of him but we made it to his place. What I right away loved about him was his friendliness and how he made my husband feel at ease. He gave us counseling and asked us questions. He was great and easy to talk to. I will recommend any couple to have Father Ariosto commence your wedding. He is truly a god sent reverend.

We had Father Robert Dittler officiate our ceremony and were very pleased with his involvement in our wedding as well as our engagement. He went above and beyond what we expected and really took the time to get to know us. Our ceremony was very touching but also humerous, which is exactly what we wanted.
