  • We were planning a very small & simple civil ceremony and wanted a short and meaningful ceremony. Arland was perfect for the task and had prepared vows that were touching and personal. His prices were reasonable, documents filed on time and was easy to work with. I would recommend Arland.

  • Arland was a blessing to us. He was so kind, calm and flexible in making the wedding exactly what we wanted it to be. He also give us suggestions and ideas to fine tune things. His voice and mannerism helped instill a sense of connections with everyone, confidence and peace. We could not have been more pleased and would recommend him for any kind of wedding or event of all religious or non-religious services. We were so lucky to find so a wonderful person to bring us together forever. James Torrez & Rosie Hernandez (CHECK OUT OUR YouTube summary video).

  • Reverend Arland did a wonderful job making our wedding the best day of our lives. He was flexible, able to make adjustments on the fly, spoke clearly, was extremely professional, and was understanding of our concerns. Highly recommended.

  • Rev. Arland Steen was a great addition to our wedding ceremony. He listened to what my husband and I wanted for the ceremony and made it happen! My husband is Russian and Filipino and I am Serbian, so to incorporate all traditions and rituals truly meant a lot to us. (Communion:Bread&Salt Ceremony, Unity Candle, Vows etc.) Rev. Arland did a great job and you can't beat his price for everything he provides! It was personal and traditional, which was everything we could have hoped for. Thank you Rev. Arland!! Definitely recommend! Best, Kat and Josh

  • Rev. Steen gave us everything we wanted. He responded quickly to our questions. He customized our service from multiple, available starting points. Most importantly to us, he was adaptable to things that came up during the ceremony (my fault) to make it memorable. I fully recommend him to all.

  • We hired Rev. Steen to officiate our wedding and even though he was based 3 hours away, he made it! This was great because we had looked for other officiants closer to our venue and they were all booked. Our vows were beautifully written and Rev. Steen was very keen to any changes we wanted. His communication with us was primarily over email which worked out great because he kept everything very detailed and his emails answered our questions before we even had any. When I look back and watch my wedding video, I just can’t get over how wonderful our ceremony was and the solemn meaning of our vows were so special.

  • Arland Steen was the best choice possible for us at our wedding. He was on time and spoke wonderfully. He made sure to go over all the possible ceremony choices he provided as well as edit any parts we did and didn’t want. I would highly recommend him. 5 stars!!!

  • It is very clear in my experience that Reverend Steen is a true professional. He was punctual, flexible, responsive, and delivered a beautiful ceremony. If you are stressed about everything else on your wedding day you can stress about one thing less knowing that you hired the best. Would highly recommend.

  • Looking for someone to perform our wedding ceremony seemed like a daunting task since neither my husband nor I have any close ties to a particular church but we still wanted to have a minister/reverend. We looked online at several choices and were excited about Reverend Arland Steen's promise of creating a personalized ceremony. The questionnaire that Arland had us fill out was quite extensive but it allowed us to truly be able to give him an idea of us as individuals as well as a couple. This provided everything he needed to be able to draft a truly personal ceremony. He even sent us a copy well in advance of our wedding date and welcomed any input we had. We then met with him in person and formed an immediate connection. His warm personality and ability to capture in words what is truly special and unique to my husband and my relationship solidified that Arland was the right choice. During the rehearsal he made sure to go over all the details for how the ceremony would g... Read more

  • Rev Steen collaborated with us on a great wedding ceremony! He had some good insight to offer and was flexible in balancing what we wanted and what worked for him. There was a bit of a mix up on the location of the wedding so we started ~20 minutes late. He was very apologetic and it seemed like an honest mistake.

    I received a heartfelt email from your Dad, Dave Nelson, three days after your ceremony. Rarely do I hear back from a bride's father. He wrote, "I really wish to thank you so very much for the wonderful job you did in leading my daughter's wedding Saturday afternoon. You did a fabulous job and the Grandmother's were very happy. You had a great understanding of Kris and Allison. The vows they did were personal and from the heart. To lead a wedding is never easy with all the differing options and you did an exceptional job. You are a very blessed minister and I am so happy they found you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart..." That meant so much to me!

  • So, Rev. Steen ended up being a no-show to our wedding. While he didn’t end up being the person to officiate our wedding, he did work with me in writing an amazing ceremony script that we were still able to use the day of since he send me the final draft. He’s very responsive both in email and text and caters to each couple individually, making our ceremony super personal. At the end of the day, there are no hard feelings as I know life happens and I still would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.
