  • Monica and her husband were truly wonderful. We did an elopement in February and then had our wedding on the beach in May. She was very thorough with designing the ceremony and making it special for our day. Everything she said during the ceremony was custom written to our personalities and our situation. We are very laid back and comedic and she took the ball and ran with it. It had the exact affect we were looking for. We ended up with something incredibly unique and special and I couldn't have asked for more.

  • Extremely happy and would recommend A & S wedding officiants and Monica! She interviewed us to get to know both of us and wrote a ceremony specifically for the two of us. Monica walked us through every step of the process, including the license, explained everything, and made our preparations with ease. Thank you Monica for all you do!

  • Jeff and Monica were absolutely fantastic! They performed a beautiful ceremony for us on the beach and handled everything. We were from out of state and all we had to do was show up. They handled everything from the marriage license before, to the ceremony, and even submitting the paperwork for the marriage certificate after the wedding. The ceremony was perfect; personalized to us, and just as we had hoped! They were friendly, personable and very professional. I would definitely recommend A&S Wedding Officiants. Mr & Mrs Haines

  • I highly recommend A&S Wedding Officiant. Monica and her husband were really helpful, they organized a great ceremony even if we don't live in California. Since I come from Italy Monica was able to make a bilingual ceremony which was perfect considering that a lot of the Italian guests didn't speak English at all. Was a pleasant and wonderful ceremony that made our special day just perfect. We couldn't be more grateful! Billy & Elettra

  • Jeff and Monica are amazing! My now husband Jay and I had an unforgettable wedding ceremony- very touching and personalized. I love how they both made sure that everything will be nothing but perfect. Many of our guests have told us that our wedding was one of the best they have witnessed-- many thanks to Jeff and Monica!

  • We loved working with A&S! Monica was so helpful in guiding us through all the ins and outs of CA marriage licensing, great suggestions and services for making things go smoothly! She and her husband were warm and fun and easy to work with! We also loved our officiant - Janell was equally warm, comfortable, and performed our service, with all of the quirky little specifics we asked for, in a genuine manner, perfect for our intimate little family ceremony! Highly recommended!

  • Reverend Monica and Jeff were absolutely amazing! They were very professional and gave our wedding such a personal touch. Our guests complimented on how great they were. Somewhere down the line when we renew our vows, we hope to have them again.

  • My fiancé and I spoke with several Ministers, none of which either of us seemed to have any interest in until we spoke with Monica. She took the time to really listen to our desires and ideas. We selected her immediately to be our Minster and could not be any happier for doing so. As Monica got to know us personally she envisioned and created a ceremony that had both of us and our families in awe. Monica you are absolutely amazing!

  • What can I say!? Monica was fantastic. Every step of the way! We're from the UK and wanted to wed in Los Angeles, we spoke to several officiants but none of them were as friendly and helpful as Monica. She took care of all of our worries and sorted all the paperwork out with ease, communication was effortless. The ceremony itself was the most beautiful we could have imagined, including her wonderful husband Jeff, who did a lovely reading. Monica then put through all the paperwork for us ready to collect in person whilst we were still in the country. Words cannot express how lucky we feel to have found Monica and to have had the best experience of getting married in another country with absolutely no stress. Our ceremony was just us and our photographers, in our favourite spot at the Griffith Observatory. If I could give 6 stars I would.

  • Can not say enough good things about Monica and her husband Jeffrey. They were nothing but professional and friendly during every stage of helping us with the officiating part of our wedding. They made filling out and sending in our paperwork a breeze which we would have been clueless about otherwise. Very friendly, welcoming people and I would recommend their services 100%. Thank you Monica and Jeffrey for helping make our special day perfect!

  • Monica and Jeff are two of the kindest, sweetest people we've ever met, and they absolutely love what they are doing, bringing two people together in marriage. We've been together for 40 years, and it was the perfect thing for us to do. I highly recommend them. You will never be disappointed. Trust us!! Mike and Jim

  • ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!! SEE FULL YELP REVIEW. orking with this group of officiators was the most unprofessional experience I have ever had. I regret it more than anything. Choose them if you want to risk being pronounced by the WRONG NAME at your wedding!! And that's just the first issue. Not only did they make this HUGE mistake, but he literally STUMBLED THROUGH THE ENTIRE CEREMONY!!!! We were standing there forever while he literally stumbled, coughed and sputtered through every line. I can provide the professional, videographer shot wedding video for anyone that would like to see. I would also be happy to send you my rough draft to follow along with just so you can see how EXTREMELY DIFFERENT the two are. We were sent a rough draft of the ceremony before the wedding of how it was SUPPOSED to be but when we got to the altar it was COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Don’t even get me started on the extremely lame jokes. They literally had ONE job. To pronounce us….and miserably failed. When I f... Read more

    “Sierra”, your wedding is such an important time and we want you to only have the happiest memories of the day. Although your review does not, in our view, accurately reflect the many interactions we had regarding pricing or even the way the service was conducted, we truly wish you and your husband the very best. I won’t address all of your allegations, but would like to correct the impression that you were charged any extra for running so late on the day of your wedding. Although we have a stated policy, listed on our website and in our contract with you, that we may charge a fee for services that are delayed, we did not elect to do so in your case. Contrary to your assertion in this review, our officiant has expressed sincere apology, in writing, to you regarding the mispronunciation of your newly created couple name. Please, again, accept our sincere apologies for this. We have also reviewed the drafts of the service and see no discrepancies from what was proposed to what was ultimately used during the service, other than the changes that you requested. We strive to be flexible and accommodating to all couples who utilize our services, and I believe we did the same for you. Although you canceled your first scheduled wedding date in January, when you called back on the April 2nd, we worked very hard to make your new date, April 5th, work. This was a fast turnaround, but we knew it was important to you. We very much regret that you have been unhappy, but feel that we have done everything possible to accommodate you. We truly hope that you find great joy in your new marriage.
