You May Kiss the Bride
Greg Mohr was an excellent officiant, and he tailored our ceremony to our preferences and lifestyle. We wanted a non-religious ceremony with a "wine-bottle love letter" to be performed during, we had a perfect ceremony length, with insightful advice from Greg, and our family & friends were not only entertained, but moved.
Greg at You May Kiss The Bride was fantastic.
He worked with us diligently to make sure that our wedding ceremony went exactly as we had envisioned. His words to us before the ceremony were calming and reassuring. He was articulate, professional, on time, responsive, and considered all of our needs for our special day. It's interesting to see someone in his profession truly LOVE what they do... he is the real deal. An officiant you don't already know can be a big risk, we won with Greg.
I'd recommend him to anyone with a wedding in So-Cal and anywhere he is willing to...
My fiancé and I are not religious people so when it was time to get married You May Kiss the Bride from Newport Beach was recommended to us by our friends. What a wonderful recommendation! Mark Wheeler was our officiate and he did a wonderful job. We knew we would hit it off from our 1st meeting. Mark gave us the short and sweet ceremony we wanted for our wedding and I am sure our guests loved listening to his South African accent. Mark and You May Kiss the Bride come highly recommended! Thank you Mark for making our wedding memorable!
Greg Mohr made our day both special and hilarious! He walked us through the process of getting our ceremony together and was so responsive. He customized the ceremony specifically for us and it made the day that much happier and more meaningful. Thank you!!!!!
Greg was very easy to work with. We were procrastinating on our ceremony and I think he got a little frustrated with how difficult it was to reach us that final week of the wedding, but he never showed it. He was able to provide several sample ceremonies for us to read and tailor to fit our personality and style. We just met before the ceremony and did a rough run through of the ceremony I had submitted to him.
Over all no complaints. Everything went...
Greg was great! He had a lot of fresh ideas and was willing to work with us to make our ceremony what we wanted. He offered great advice on the day of the ceremony which was to really just pay attention to each other and not worry about talking loud enough for everyone to hear us, as long as we could hear each other....this was so calming the day of!
Easy to work with! Great!! Had the best ideas.
First of all Greg and Elisa are an awesome team. Elisa takes care of most of the business side of things and she is excellent at answering all your questions. The reason we picked Greg was because as soon as you speak with him on the phone you're completely put at ease. Greg was able to answer all our questions and helped us with what we wanted for our ceremony. Two months before the ceremony, Elisa was kind enough to remind us about the marriage license as well as provide us with detailed information as to how to obtain it. On the day of the ceremony, Greg was cheerful, calm and even managed to "MacGyver" his way into solving some of our little problems (we forgot the funnel for the sand ceremony). My parents, my husband's parents, family members and friends all let us know that he did a wonderful job. If you want your ceremony done right, You May Kiss the Bride is the only one who can do it perfectly.
Mark Wheeler was our wedding officiant and we could not have been happier. We met with Mark about a week prior to our wedding and hit it off from the start. He was so easy to talk to and really made us feel like getting to know who we were was important to him. I wanted the ceremony to be meaningful, and that's exactly what it was. He helped us make it our own, which was so important to us. After the ceremony everyone kept telling us "That was so You Guys!" and we couldn't have been happier. I highly recomend You May Kiss the Bride as well as using Mark as your officiant.
As soon as I spoke with Greg on the phone I knew he was the right man for he job! I had no idea what questions to ask him or how to pick an officiant. He walked me through every detail and made the entire process so easy. He emailed us some sample ceremonies and met with us to discuss our options. He even sent us instructions about obtaining our marriage license....good thing because I almost forgot! Leading up to the wedding he followed up...just enough...to make sure the ceremony was finalized in time and we were happy with the result. The day of the wedding Greg was great and we got a lot of compliments from our guests. I highly recommend Greg and You May Kiss the Bride!
Elisa and Greg did an excellent job for my wedding on 2/19/11. Unlike most brides I didn't want my ceremony to be over in a flash. It was important that the ceremony had meaning and purpose. It was also super important that they were able to express what we wanted in Spanish as well. Elisa (although not 100% bilingual) did an amazing job! All the non english speakers in the bunch clearly understood her. Together with her husband Greg they worked with my fiancee (at the time) and I to come up with exactly what we wanted. They provided great script ideas and samples in both english and spanish. They were professional, Elissa was always quick to respond and they were reasonably priced in comparison to others. It was impossible to find bilingual officiants in Orange County so I was very pleased to have found them. Since at times I like to go against the grain, I LOVED the fact that a female had married my husband and I. It was a true progressive statement in my culture that can be a little old fashioned. Thanks Elissa!! I was thouroughly impressed with your attentiveness and ability to convey what we wanted in spanish! Bravo!!
WOW!! Greg is amazing and incredibly easy to work with. (His wife, Elisa, who runs a lot of the business side of things is great too).
We met with a few other officiants and here are the things that really sold us on Greg:
- he was always smiling and had such a sunny and great attitude
- he started out officiating on ships. Having that not uber religious feel worked for us, since we weren't looking for a really religious wedding (but he also has a religious background which was fine for us). We really appreciated him being okay with not mentioning God.
- he said the ceremony was all about us, and really meant it (we met with some other officiants that said the same thing, but then went on and talked about themselves for the rest of the meeting).
- he read verbatim what we agreed that the ceremony was -- so there were absolutely no surprises during our wedding
- he was very patient with all our email/phone questions and edits of our ceremony (and met with us twice in person)
- he worked with us to make our ceremony incredibly personalized, and made some great suggestions on our personal vows (he was the only one that saw them before the ceremony -- and was great at letting us know if we were on the same page for our vows).
- his wife is a math person (we are both math people, so this was especially appealing to us)
Great officiant. We highly recommend him and "You May Kiss The Bride"
Greg did a fantastic job at our wedding! From our first conversation, Greg and his wonderful wife Elisa helped us with everything - from researching our honeymoon to sending us sample ceremonies. I didn't get Greg a draft of our ceremony until a couple weeks before, but he was completely accomodating. He called me and we talked about the details and when I asked him to write something about his relationship with Elisa, he kindly obliged. On the day of, he was prompt, calmly came to visit me in the bridal room and delivered my ceremony perfectly. I got many compliments about him from my guests and I am so grateful I had him at our wedding. Thank you Greg!!!
Greg is awesome! He is very professional and very easy to get along with. He was very helpful, he sent us email reminders with information on obtaining a marriage license, certified copy, and other important information that you don't think about during crazy wedding planning. He's great!
Greg was AMAZING!!! He was so professional and friendly from start to finish. He definitley made our ceremony very comfortable for us both and accomodated us with our requests. He gave our ceremony the kind of emotion and laughter we wanted.
I ABSOLUTELY recommed You May Kiss The Bride 100% and Greg was totally worth it!
What can I say...Greg Mohr is simply the best! He's so nice and and easy to work with. He helped us develop our own unique ceremony. He had plenty of great input, ideas and feedback while developing our ceremony, but wasn't pushy if we didn't like his ideas. He helped us develop a wedding ceremony and vows we will cherish forever.
On the day of the wedding he arrived early. He met with both my husband and myself separately and gave us some words of advice and encouragement. He had a very calming effect and definitely helped our nerves. He made us feel like everything was going to go very smooth! For the ceremony itself, he is an excellent speaker. He spoke clearly and loud enough for everyone to hear. When I forgot to repeat the ring vows after putting the ring on my husband, he just calmly and quietly repeated the instructions to repeat after him and I did without too man people noticing my mistake. :-)
I would highly recommend Greg to be your officiant! He's amazing!
My officiant was Mr. Wheeler and he was absolutely wonderful. He went out of his way to make the day special for us. My family liked him so much that my brother wants Mr. Wheeler to officiate at his wedding.
Greg assisted us through the process including creating our vows and making recommendations. He delivered exactly as planned with no surprises and made us feel so comfortable before and at the wedding. He also has a great professional presence. He assisted at the rehearsal ensuring everything went as planned. We enjoyed his sense of humor too. The initial meeting and throughout the wedding was perfect!
Greg was awesome! So many people commented on how great he was. I love that you can design a ceremony around what is important to you. He is a non denominational officiant. I would highly recommend him! His wife is just wonderful to work with and I couldn't have asked for a better person to marry my husband and I!
My husband and I sincerely enjoyed Greg Mohr and Mark Wheeler. Mark was originally going to do our wedding, but something came up and he was no longer going to be able to. One thing that I admire about people is if something goes wrong they fix it before it becomes a problem. Mark called his coworker and asked him if he would be available to officiate our wedding before he told me he was no longer going to be able to. I admire people who tell the truth and are a head of the game. To a bride last minute change is critical because you want everything to be perfect. Both Greg and Mark are wonderful people. They are funny, sincere, and knowledgeable and most of all we felt comfortable. when we were looking for someone to officiate our wedding our main concerns were that we felt comfortable, they needed a sense of humor, and most of all had compassion. I will say that Greg and Mark ha all of those qualities and more. I would recommend You May Kiss the Bride to everyone who is looking.
We booked Greg from You May Kiss the Bride after meeting with him and talking with him on the phone. His personality is great and we knew hed be a perfect fit on our special day! We were right! He attended our rehearsal and gave us tips (don't stare at him unless we want pictures of the back of our heads) and kept us calm. His company provides you all the information you need for your special day. He gives you complete freedom in your ceremony, but will provide numerous examples of previous ceremonies he has performed (along with readings and vows). We took a little bit from each example, added our own wording in a few places and had our very own customized wedding ceremony. Our guests later told us that they couldnt believe how beautiful our ceremony was. We also received an email 2 months before the wedding with detailed instructions (complete with web links) on how to receive our marriage certificate and how to later obtain and file our marriage license. After the wedding, Greg filed the marriage license with the county and 3 weeks after we were back from our honeymoon, we received our certified copies of our marriage license in the mail. The whole process couldnt have been more seamless! We were very impressed with the level of detail Greg puts into his ceremonies and his quick response to file our marriage license. Believe me, youll be glad you booked him to officiate your special day!

I am so late in writing this...(wedding was 8/30/08) but I figured it's better late than never! Greg is absolutely wonderful. From the first day I met with him I knew he was going to be one of my favorite people to work with! He's just a completely nice guy, with a great sense of humor! My husband said after the wedding that he really liked him, he just kept saying how great he was and how much he helped out. Not only was he outstanding on the day of the wedding, he was very helpful and caring leading up to it, too. I recommend him 100%!!
I think You May Kiss the Bride was another one of the best choices I made during the wedding process. I just can't tell you how professional yet personal Greg, Elisa, and Mark were throughout the entire process. We were so blessed to get Mark Wheeler on our wedding day. HE IS THE GREATEST!!! We met with him at a coffee shop to just talk before the ceremony so that it wasn't a strange man marrying us on our wedding day. He was so personal, talking about his wife and what marriage meant to him. Mark then came to our rehearsal, met our families and walked us through the ceremony. I love that he felt like a part of our family for the day. On the day of the wedding, he was so great and calming. He made sure we caputured all of those special picture moments and was aware of things that I didn't even know happened during weddings. I just can't say enough about how lucky we are that Mark was a part of our day. I was scared to book an officant online to marry us but it was such a great choice.
Greg was our officiant and he did a fantastic job! He's so friendly, warm, and caring. He really cared about how we were feeling and just by talking to him helped calm us. He was always prompt with communication and always on the ball, he would remind us to work on our ceremony, gave us ideas on ceremony types and wording. After we worked out the ceremony wording, he called and went through every detail with us before the wedding day. During the ceremony, he was flawless, he went by the script (so no cheesy jokes or anything like that)and even changed a few words on the spot to make it flow better. He's a real professional and we couldn't be happier with him and the ceremony!
Greg Mohr, the owner, was amazing! He was so attentive to anything I needed help with or anything. He was very professional and always willing to do anything to make our ceremony our own. When I had some problems with my marriage license after the wedding, Greg took it upon himself to call the county clerk's office and square the problem away; he even hand deliverd a resigned license. The officiant was really nice even though he messed up my husband's name during the ceremony. Overall, great company to work with.
lovely officiant-he was professional and just perfect for the wedding. response time through e-mails were good from the company.
Mark Wheeler was the best! He was kind and warm and he kept us calm! Everyone was thrilled with our short and sweet ceremony, 10 mins! It was the best and he was a champ about helping to release the butterflies we had :) I recommend him 100% for the rehearsal dinner as he helped to insure a great day to come! The whole staff was great, Greg would call to see how I was doing with choosing the ceremony and his wife, Elisa even helped my book my honeymoon! It was a great experience and I'm very thankful for them!

We book You May Kiss the Bride since our coordinator recommended them. We worked with Greg throughout planning but knew he was already booked for the day. Mark was to officiate and we were a little worry (especially since all the emails/phone calls were with Greg). I guess that's how it usually happens (our coordinator reassured us). Everything turn out great and we were very happy with the ceremony.
Greg (and Elisa) are awesome. We met Greg a month before our wedding, and immediately liked him. He helped us work on our ceremony by email while he was gone on a family vacation. We ended up with a very unique and personalized ceremony that our friends still talk about (and how often do people even remember the ceremony?!)
Originally I was concerned that Greg was not going to be at the dress rehearsal, but as he said, "the rehearsal is all about staging, and 99% of the time I stand in the middle." Greg called the night before the wedding to walk through the ceremony with me, and the day of he was there early to talk and work out some last minute details. He was definitely one of the best vendors we met and dealt with during the whole event.
I booked Greg without ever meeting with him based off of my DOC's recommendation & other good reviews. When DH & I met with him a week before the wedding to review the ceremony wording, we were blown away with what an amazing and funny guy he was. He helped us walk through our ceremony wording, verified what we didn't want there, helped us remember some of our longer lines of our vows, and just gave us one hell of an entertaining afternoon. On our wedding day Greg was a calming presence. He met with us before the ceremony to review, to calm us down, and to get us ready to go. He performed the ceremony beautifully and I had the best time watching him crack up during our reading... He was by far one of our most entertaining and easiest vendors to work with.
Mark Wheeler was awesome! We hired him for the Rehearsal and that was a huge relief. He kept our surprise Rose Ceremony under wraps for us at the Rehearsal, too...so our moms still had no idea about it until the day-of. DH and I wrote the ceremony (most of the credit goes to DH though...), but Mark did a great job with the presentation of it. He kept it light and fun and kept us on track. The ceremony seemed like it flew by...
I originally asked for Gregg Mohr but he might not be in town on our wedding Mark Wheeler performed our day. Greg helped me build the ceremony we like, and Mark excuted it perfectly. At the end of the ceremony, he handed me our ceremony typed up on a nice paper for us to keep. He was just GREAT, we loved him.
We loved Greg! How can you not? He’s just so darn good at what he does. He put us both at ease before the ceremony and he did a fantastic job of running the show during the ceremony. The guests loved him and we loved him. What a great guy.

You May Kiss the Bride has the best officiants! Greg Mohr is wonderful and will take care of you and find the right officiant for you. Mark Wheeler is truly a pleasure to work with and adds that warm and personal touch to any wedding ceremony. I highly recommend You May Kiss the Bride!
I absolutely love working with You May Kiss the Bride. The Officiants and other staff have been the most responsive and professional. I will continue to refer my clients!
The most important task entrusted to an officiant, a wedding coordinator, and everyone involved in the production of your wedding is to create that perfect moment. It’s when, after months, possibly years of preparation, the groom is standing in front of the most important friends and family he and his bride-to-be have in their lives, the venue has been prepared according to their preferences, the music, the lighting, the flowers, and everything else is perfect; the bride enters the room like a vision, she begins her procession, she sees her groom, their eyes meet, and it’s magic.
This day is not about your officiant, it’s about you, and we will do whatever we can to ensure that you, your ceremony, and your marriage shine through.
When you book with You May Kiss the Bride, you get more than an officiant. You get a team of professionals with years of experience in the wedding industry. You get prompt answers to your questions, prompt responses to your emails, concise information about your role in the ceremony process, and an attention to detail that is unparalleled in the industry.
