Sasha did a brilliant job with our vows and our ceremony. She was super nice and easy to work with. We worked with her to decide what things we wanted in the ceremony script and anything we didn't. She crafted us a beautiful script completely unique to our relationship. She was professional and looked nice in all our photos. True to form there was no mention of religion or anything along those lines- we were there to celebrate our love and devotion to each other and that was it. Her communication via email was sometimes delayed and I had to follow up a little bit. Other than that we were very happy with her service and would highly recommend her.
Sasha was the perfect officiant for us. From our first phone call I felt completely comfortable, and the afternoon we spent at her home going over our ceremony plans was warm and welcoming, and fun! She has a very open relaxed personality that eases wedding jitters and made the whole process enjoyable.
She responded to all my obsessive emails asking for minute changes, and on the rehearsal was punctual, professional, and very friendly to everyone present. truly I couldnt have imagined a better officiant, especially since we are not religious people but wanted the ceremony to still be profound and meaningful. Sasha accomplished that with ease, and was able to laugh off awkward moments and keep us calm and collected and present.
I can't say enough good things about her, Sasha was great!
Sasha is absolutely incredible. She helped us write the most personal vows and truly made our special day just that! We received so many compliments on not only the ceremonial words but the way in which our entire ceremony was conducted. I would highly recommend her to every couple out there!
Too bad Sasha doesn't really officiate wedding anymore because she was very pleasant to work with. It was a great honor to have her as our officiant. She was very flexible in want we wanted with our vows and program que. She gave us really good suggestions on certain parts. On the day of she was very relaxed and professional and we didnt feel any stress at all. We got great compliments from our guests. Our ceremony was quick and sweet. Definitely recommended if she decides to officiate again.
Vendor response to review
Greetings! I'm happy to report that I am indeed officiating for happy brides and grooms - ten years and counting!
Well, I had a meeting scheduled with her to discuss possibly being my officiant. I drove all the way out to her area, and waited half an hour. She didn't show up. She never even called or emailed to explain or apologize. Nada. Needless to say, I'm going with someone else!
Sasha was my officiant for my wedding & I couldn't have picked someone better. She was always easy to get in touch with & she listened to us when creating our one of a kind ceremony. Her words were beautiful & true. She has a beautiful, calming tone to her voice. I got so many compliments on our ceremony & I was really happy to have Sasha as part of our wedding.
Calm. Collected, and totally cool. Sasha brings warmth and personalization to every wedding ceremony. I have had the honor of working with her, and she made my clients feel loved, calm, and well taken-care of. She is part of my www.swellegant.com preferred vendor list because I trust and believe that she will help you create your perfect wedding ceremony.
Hello, Rationalists, Humanists, Agnostics, Atheists, Pastafarians and other Freethinkers! I have been marrying couples from all walks of life since 2002.
I co-create custom wedding ceremonies for each couple with whom I work. You'll have as much guidance as you need AND total freedom in imagining and designing your ceremony...but I'll do the work of putting it together for you. Your wedding will be FABulous...and fun, family-centered, or.......you tell me!
I work exclusively with couples who want a non-religious ceremony, and serve all of California. Call today for a free consultation so that we can discuss your vision. I am committed to helping your wedding dreams come true.
I look forward to connecting with you!
Yours in Reason,
A I’ve been marrying couples since 2002.
Q Do you perform gay/lesbian weddings?
A Gladly! I hope that California will continue to evolve and this question will become obsolete.
Q I have this kind of weird idea for our wedding…are you willing to do something a little different?
A Absolutely. I’ve had some interesting requests. Right now the couple who had me call out one of their guests and roast him on the spot (right after their vows!) holds the record for most different. (Then again, there was the Star Trek-themed wedding where the bride promised to “Cling on” to her husband in their vows…) I love it when couples mix it up and create something that’s entirely their own.
Q We’re having a California wedding, but we’re planning it from out of town. Can you still marry us?
A I’m delighted to work with out-of-town clients via Skype/email/phone in lieu of a personal meeting. Let me know how I may best help you.
Q How much do you charge?
A Please visit my rates page for more information. Our initial consultation is free; if you decide to book with me, I take a non-refundable deposit of $100 to hold your date(s).
