  • James made our day special. He reached out to us with ideas and was very flexible in the process. We created our own vows and his guidance was very helpful. The day of the ceremony, he was absolutely delightful. Our families enjoyed his demeanor and engaged our families following the ceremony. We would highly recommend James!

  • We feel truly lucky to have had James perform our ceremony for our elopement at the Elk Cove Inn. He was very communicative and helpful in the months leading up to our wedding, sending us a transcript of the ceremony with many beautiful options and ways to personalize included. During the ceremony we felt like we'd known him for years - he was kind, sweet, beautifully spoken. He left us with a beautiful personalized booklet that included the transcript of our entire ceremony. James is truly a special person, and we will never forget our experience with him!

  • James was amazing. He reached out as soon as he knew we were eloping & always responded promptly to my changes to our vows. We were very pleased overall.

  • James was absolutely wonderful! He performed the exact ceremony we were looking for (two person elopement). We didn't want cheesy and formal but wanted it to be meaningful nonetheless and it was perfect. He gave us excellent recommendations for photographers and location advise. James was flexible and relaxed and we could not have be happier!

  • James was the best officiant! He is sweet, kind hearted, funny, and made us feel very comfortable and eased our nerves. We were introduced to James through our venue, Elk Cove Inn. We highly recommend James!

  • James delivered a very warm, well-spoken, and personalized ceremony. He was very professional and we enjoyed working with him through every step of our wedding. My wife's family is from Mexico and speaks limited English. James was very accommodating and made every effort to bridge that language gap. We'd certainly recommend him to anyone.

  • We could not have imagined our wedding day without James. We knew within seconds of meeting him that we wanted him to officiate our wedding, and he did a fantastic job. He went above and beyond to get to know my husband and I in advance of our wedding and to make our ceremony unique to us. Not only were we extremely touched by James' thoughtful and heartfelt ceremony, but all of our guests were also. His words evoked feelings and questions about love and resonated with our guests. James offered us plenty of guidance and without a doubt helped to start our marriage off on the right note. He is wonderful!

  • We've had the good fortune to have James Sibbet officiate our wedding vow renewal/reaffirmation not just once, but FOUR times (every five years). We felt completely at ease with him from the very first contact, and our feelings haven't changed since. The ceremony involves only my husband and me, James, and the beautiful coastal setting--we have been going to the same spot ever since. James truly makes the experience special; his warm personality shines through. Each time he has acted as our officiant, we greet each other like old friends. We look forward to our next reaffirmation with James--we wouldn't have it any other way.

  • James is great, he makes you feel at ease and he bothers to tailor the service to suit your interests and personalities. We did virtually everything by email from the UK. After 20 years together we decided to get married, so James made the ceremony match our long history. We had a simple service just for two in June 2016 at Bettilou's Inn in Mendocino with John Birchard as photographer. James made the purpose of the ceremony not feel silly because only two of you are there. To finish off he gave us our service in a little booklet which he hand made. You really can't go wrong.

  • I can't say enough good things about James. He performed my daughter's wedding ceremony with such kindness, professionalism and absolute joy. He obviously loves what he does and we all agreed that the wedding wouldn't have been as special without him. I recommend him highly!!

  • James Sibbet was thoughtful and thorough in helping us (via email) through the preparation for our small ceremony. But the best was yet to come, when we met James Sibbet on the day of the ceremony. He bonded with us immediately, set us at ease, and guided us through a very meaningful and memorable celebration of our union. James Sibbet was an integral part of a day we will remember for the rest of our lives.

  • James was the officiant for our wedding in Mendocino. The elopement package we used arranged for all our vendors, so we didn't have a chance to "shop around"; he was hired before we met him! In this kind of situation, it would have been easy for him to phone it in. But that is definitely not the way James approaches the service he provides! He was warm, responsive, genuinely interested in getting to know us, committed to creating a ceremony that reflected who we are as people, and most importantly full of good humor. He has a steady, calming presence that was very welcome on such a nerve-wracking day, and he put my husband and I at ease immediately. I particularly appreciated how gracious he was during the planning process, when he sent us a draft copy of the ceremony he'd prepared and we returned it to him almost completely rewritten. I think only one or two sentences of his original draft remained! Instead of being insulted, he thanked us for introducing him to a new poem we'd ch... Read more

  • James made our wedding day perfect. My husband and I are very private people and nervous when in front of large crowds. James brought a level of comfort for us on our special day. From his warm smile to his beautiful words at our ceremony, there truly was no better man to be there with us. Being nervous on your wedding day is natural but before I walked down the aisle, James' quick smile and kind words put me at ease. This may sound a bit cheesy but it is very true, James is one of the sweetest men I have ever met and he absolutely made our wedding day perfect. Thank you!
