  • My fiance, Paul, and I had no idea who to hire for our officiant. That's when we found Matthew Love, owner of Love's Events. Paul and I are so happy we found Matthew! He met with us in person 3 times and spent hours with us getting to know us. He is a very perceptive person, and it doesn't take long to learn that Matthew has a deep respect for all religions and beliefs. Matthew crafted a unique ceremony for us that reflected us, our beliefs, and our love for each other. During the ceremony, all I could do was listen in awe to every word he said. Matthew has a wonderful way of connecting everyone to each other and us during our special evening. Several members of our family told us they loved Matthew, our ceremony and how special it was for them too. Matthew Love was also our Emcee and DJ. I don't know how he wore so many hats that night, but he did an amazing job! He had to deal with a super late set up time. Matthew was originally given a scant hour to set up his equipm... Read more

    Dear Celon and Paul, I can't THANK YOU enough for all of these many wonderful words of encouragement, appreciation, and recognition! Reading and just allowing your experience to circle back in the most amazing feedback loop is among my greatest joys of providing these services and doing this work; very intense, time-driven and challenging work (thanks for recognizing and articulating those), but most importantly, JOYFUL and FULFILLING work! I love what I do and wouldn't have it any other way. These evenings of intensity make me feel alive as I do all I can to make others feel the same. You and Paul were dream clients (kind, receptive, appreciative) which invites and allows the experience you describe. I truly hope others find your words helpful; I'm sure they will. Thank you again so very much and CONGRATULATIONS!

  • The moment I met Mr. LOVE (Matthew), I knew he was someone special. He is genuine, personable and full of LOVE! My son hired him to officiate one of the biggest milestones in our family history. On such a grand occasion the right officiate needs to be “THE ONE”. Mr. LOVE was it. From the beginning he had great ideas yet was respectful of the couples wishes. He is full of positive energy, interacting with the entire family and guests all through the ceremony and into the reception. Mr. LOVE not only officiated the wedding ceremony, he DJ’d the reception and was master of ceremony keeping things moving in a professional and fun way. We had worried about the sound quality of an outside wedding, but Mr. LOVE’s audio/stereo equipment met the mark and surpassed our expectations. He truly felt like one of the family and will not be forgotten. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for engineering such and amazing, unforgettable moment in our lives.

    Anne, you are a GEM to whom I am SO very grateful! I'll add that we had an opportunity to meet and interact even more than just rehearsal and wedding day; we met on a venue site visit which ended at the location of the rehearsal so you were a most involved mom who witnessed some of the content I shared with Chad and Kira for the very first time...I have to just say how special it was to get misty-eyed with not only the couple but you as well. I love learning things and am thrilled that the outside sound quality exceeded your expectations. I can hardly wait to hear ALL about Australia from Chad and Kira. You've got some amazing kids there Anne and I wish you amazing experiences going forward. Thank you ever so much.

  • My wife and I interviewed several officiants before we decided to have Matthew Love marry us. We knew from the first call that he was the right choice. While most others discussed their strategies and payment processes, Matthew opened with “So how did you guys meet?” Throughout the whole process, Matthew was there to ensure we got just what we were looking for and helped us wherever we needed him. We had dinner after the first venue tour to go over some final details and my mom liked him so much that they were sharing sandwiches in between talking points. He was our officiant, DJ, and MC for the wedding itself and he crushed it! Matthew met with the bridal party before the ceremony and I was approached by a groomsman afterwards who said, this was the first time he had actually felt like he was a part of the wedding as a groomsman and not just another guy standing up there. That was the environment that Matthew created. The ceremony had everyone in happy tears, the reception went se... Read more

    For me, one of the challenges with the conclusion of planning and executing a full-scale wedding production is the emotional "let-down" I experience after it's over with little to no opportunity really to deconstruct and unpack everything as one would in a typical job/work team situation. Try as I might, I just cannot take this journey with my couples and their friends and family without an authentic connection to the group with whom I work and serve without getting a bit attached so I experience a bit of grief and loss every time. Therefore, feedback such as THIS is absolute pure platinum for me (and I hope for those in the planning stages). Chad, I SO greatly appreciate your beautifully articulate, heartfelt and detailed account. You've afforded me valuable insight into some details (such as your groomsman's experience) I wouldn't have otherwise known and it truly means the world to me and I certainly hope others as well. THANK YOU so very much for everything. It was truly a great honor, privilege, and pleasure.

  • I knew over the phone that I wanted to hire Matthew at love Love's Events. After setting up and meeting and talking with Matthew I really knew that we wanted to hire Love's Events. Matthew is amazing and takes the time and uses tools to really get to know the couple. He makes each day special to that couple and their day.

    A million one THANK YOU's to you and Joe Amanda. You two have an amazing acute sensibility about life, yourselves, the Cosmos and world and your and place and responsibility in them and more...it has been SUCH a great pleasure. The kind of connection we enjoy comes from a willingness to be seen and heard...with vulnerability. I thank you both for your willingness. That's the stuff of magic!

  • My husband and I hired Matthew to be our officiant at our wedding at Columbia Winery. We are absolutely happy with the decision we made to go with him because he incorporated everything we wanted into our ceremony (even the Filipino wedding Traditions). He’s so easy to work with and will do all he can to make your ceremony perfect and personalized. Our wedding party and guests loved him as well because he really gets the guests involved and engaged. You won’t regret it hiring him! Thanks so much Matthew for making our ceremony unforgettable!

    THANK YOU so much Rae! I had a fantastic time every single step of the way and am not only grateful to you and Mitch, but Reneille your cousin and planner extraordinaire has been such a joy and delight too! EVERYONE in your wonderful family has been a positive ray of light and exuberance. It was truly an honor, not only to be of service but to be in the company of such a terrific crowd!

  • I can’t say enough about Matthew Love. We met him at a wedding show and knew pretty instantly that we had to have him as our officiant and later decided to have him DJ too. He is not your average wedding vendor. His passion and love for what he does comes through in every way. He spent many hours meeting with us and customizing everything to us...which was all enjoyable and a lot of fun. He’s one of those people you meet that just have this amazing energy around them and you just want to be friends with them. :) He also guided us in areas of our wedding that I wouldn’t have expected but was so right on. The decisions were always up to us but his advice was above and beyond and though we didn’t always go with all his suggestions, in hindsight, we probably should have, lol. Matthew is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. We had numerous people come up to us and compliment how truly moving our ceremony was and that was really a testament to all the work h... Read more

    Lindsey, I am just so deeply grateful and appreciative for all of these wonderful reflections as well as the fun and joy of the journey with most especially you and Chip along with Lauren, Madison, and everyone...I too will miss our meetups! I've actually never had a client mention that before but it really hits home as to one of my challenges doing this work and that is the emotional and energetic "let-down" after it's completion. There is such investment of time, thought, imagination, visualizing and planning leading up to the two key days (rehearsal and wedding), with little to no opportunity to reflect and wind down and share more in the post-wedding period. It feels a bit like a loss of sorts, a small grief if you will, a realization that "hey, it's happened, it was wonderful and it's over." I truly carry my families with me and watch with earnestness the ongoing adventures they have moving forward in life, mostly on social media, with genuine interest and care. I'm profoundly satisfied to read such accounts and couldn't be more delighted, pleased and happy to read your wonderful words. Thank you so very much again and enjoy these next chapters before you with all the wonderment and joy possible.

  • Matthew brought a personal touch to our wedding that was well beyond what I expected. He invested significant time getting to know us and learning what our wedding meant to us as a couple. His care, follow-through, and attention to detail was so comforting as we went through this process. If you want someone who cares, who really cares, about you as a couple and making your day special, he is your guy. I’m happy through this experience to now call him a friend. He also did the DJ work for the wedding and knocked that out of the park. I don’t know how he does it, but I fully endorse him!

    responded with the following comments.

    A million thanks Chip...I absolutely consider you and Lindsey friends now as well and that particular comment means the world. You really got me on that...and it's a bit rarer for the gentlemen to comment or post reviews after weddings are complete so THANK YOU so much for offering future clients your perspective, I'm sure it will be helpful to many. At the very least, it is certainly most warmly appreciated by me.

  • Matthew officiated and MC’d our wedding at Hangar 30 on September 15, 2018 and we honestly can’t say enough of ALL the good things about him. Planning a wedding is hard, finding perfect vendors is even more difficult. Matthew was a joy and a true partner in the process. He really took the time over several meetings to get to know us, learn about our families and our vision for our day. The result of this collaboration really shows in a ceremony that is as unique as your relationship and promises that you can truly live by. This is no “canned” ceremony script! Before the ceremony- Matthew took the time to cut through the (inevitable) chaos, focus the wedding party on the reason why we were there and set the tone for the day. As MC, Mathew is a true asset. One of the most important aspects of the day for us was that the flow of the reception felt natural but also engaging for our guests. Have you ever been to an event where you ended up kind of waiting around for the next... Read more

    Bethany, your reflections and feedback are deeply appreciated almost as much as your easy, open, flexible and fun temperament and sensibilities! You and Marc were an absolute JOY from the get-go and the ease and fun of our very first meet up set the tone for what I was certain would be a wonderful joyful journey. NOT at all to be confused with a lack of sophistication of an amazing vision and outstanding and unique ceremony and celebration, ease means an uncanny ability to allow, recognize and accept the many factors (mostly all the people and their contributions) that one can simply not possibly control. You GOT that and understood the intrinsic arc and buzz of a type of controlled chaos which did indeed lead to a wonderfully fulfilled vision. In the middle of it all, the embodiment of the grace, elegance and good nature of the finest royalty, there you were. I truly hope your review is seen and read often as it's relevance, breadth and detail should hold great value for those early in the planning of their wedding or event.

  • My wife and I are really, really, really happy with our wedding day. We thought everything went perfectly and could not have asked for anything to have been different. A big part of that was Matthew, his spirit, his eloquence and his boundless, positive energy. Throughout the day, I appreciated how he moved everyone with his speeches, gracefully smoothed every wrinkle, and got and kept the party going once we were in that stage. I heard from many of the guests, without asking, that they really liked his performance. Matthew will be the perfect officiant, DJ and/or MC for your wedding.

    I am honored to have been invited to help realize a most unique, multi-location destination wedding vision Henri and am particularly delighted that you took the time and latitude as it were to expound on what had a very positive impact for you and Tao Xian. What you describe can be most challenging for a vendor to adequately convey in service offerings and you've done that for me wonderfully. I truly hope those planning their big day find your insights and experience valuable. There is just so so much to the delicate art of executing an entire ceremony and evenings celebrations. Thank you ever so much!

  • Matthew is one of the best officiants I have been around. I have been to plenty of weddings and he is by far the best. The first time I met him I knew immediately that this is the person I want to marry us. His energy and personality are second to none and sets him miles ahead of his competitors. He doesn't just make it about the Bride and Groom, he makes sure that family and friends feel like they are part of the ceremony as well. He also lets the Bride and Groom put their own personal touch on the ceremony as well. My fiance's sister used him at their wedding last year, and her Father's wedding last week. My fiance and I were in both of the weddings, both were great and went off without a hitch. We are using him for our wedding next year too! Matt will make your wedding day as perfect and special as you always thought and expected it should be.

    WoW!! THANK you so much, Brian! This is moving and humbling as well as a terrific demonstration of the most organic, real and natural networking there could be. Marrying your future sister n law, then her dad and his now wife and then you and Cassie in '19! I can hardly WAIT! This type of genuine connection truly makes the experience so rich and meaningful for everyone and I am profoundly appreciative of your most kind words and reflections. You too have amazing energy and helped the general feeling and tone of the entire experience tremendously so thank you for being such a great YOU!

  • I was my friend's best man during his wedding in Seattle, and had the pleasure of meeting Matthew Love. He's an extraordinary MC, loving and caring person. I was beyond impressed with his professionalism, and how he ran the event. I am definitely bringing him to SoCal to organize my wedding party. It was great meeting you, Matthew! Thank you!!

    Wow Vina, You are a gentleman and a scholar and let's not forget, the BEST MAN for last weekend's wedding of Bethany and Marc! It was beyond moving how you approached me after the ceremony and throughout the reception with such earnest open-heartedness. Thank you so much for your kindness and beingness.

  • Matthew was amazing to work with as he was the DJ/emcee for a wedding that I was the coordinator for. He's full of positive energy and so accommodating, you can't help but smile whenever you're with him. He stuck to the schedule, the notes that I prepared for him during the reception, and he also went above and beyond to be personable with the guests and be on top of the timeline. He's very detailed oriented and it was very reassuring to have him on the team. Thank you, Matthew! I hope to cross paths soon!

    Athena, your gorgeous words couldn't be more true about yourself as well! Truly a dream team effort, it was my great pleasure to enjoy the privilege of working with a true pro, you. From the moment we connected with the clients at our planning meeting, I knew this was going to be FUN, and it was. Your detailed plans were immaculate and our combined flexibility made the night shine. I can hardly wait to work with you again. THANK YOU for your wonderful feedback, I hope it helps others with their vendor choices.

And you really nailed your lines in our wedding video (you'll see...), just like the untrammeled professional that you are! We really appreciate how thoughtful, caring, and loving you have been as our love has grown over the years, and we can't wait to continue our adventures as (dancing) newlyweds!

  • Our wedding day was perfect because of Matthew!! I am so glad I found his website, because I can’t imagine how our day would’ve been if we had hired someone else. Not only is he an amazing person, but he knows what he’s doing. We hired him last minute, and he was able to put everything together for us. Getting to know him was my favorite part, he’s super friendly and just has the most positive energy. He knew exactly what we wanted and needed for our special day, and I can’t thank him enough. He did an amazing job with outlining the program and helping us through our last minute plans. Thank you so much Matthew for everything, we are truly grateful! I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with his services, he is the love of the party!

    THANK YOU, Lua and Cory, so very much! Wow, this is such an amazing personal testimony of your experience and perspective which I so appreciate as I hope others find helpful as well. I am thrilled that I was able to step in at just two weeks before your date and not only fill a key role but also support your entire timeline and flow, create your perfect ceremony and even help with aspects of your reception! Thank YOU for finding and reaching out to me and allowing me to do some of what I just LOVE to do.
