  • Ana Requena was our officiant at our wedding last weekend in Santa Barbara. She was fantastic! She was very easy to work with throughout the process and was very professional. Great value as well. I would highly recommend Ana if you are getting married in the Santa Barbara area!

  • Ariel was an amazing officiant at every step of the process. She took time out to meet up months beforehand to get a sense of who we were and how we envisioned our ceremony. Countless correspondences between then and the wedding day helped lay out the ceremony and made us confident that it would be great. She translated everything into Spanish wonderfully, and on the day of delivered a brilliant bilingual ceremony. She was articulate and projected the kind of energy/presence you'd hope for your wedding. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

  • Ariel was the perfect officiant for our wedding. In our first meeting, we told her our story and she came up with multiple suggestions of ceremonies to choose from, with alternatives for specific sections that are often customized. We then created our own ceremony by putting together the parts we liked best. Ariel added her final touch by writing a very nice and personal introduction. She speaks multiple languages and made parts of the ceremony in Spanish and parts in Portuguese. Ariel was very attentive and made sure that we provided the information she needed on time. People were crying during the ceremony :) We highly recommend Ariel to officiate your wedding!

  • Ariel was great! We met with her before our wedding and hit it off! The minute we met Ariel, we knew she was the perfect person to marry us. We got to know each other and Ariel really picked up on the details about my husband and I. I love the fact that she is bilingual and was able to translate exactly what I wanted her to translate for the ceremony. Ariel was very professional and down to earth. The ceremony was also well done. There were moments of laughter and moments where I cried. Thanks for a memorable wedding ceremony Ariel!

  • Ariel was a FANTASTIC officiant. Her remarks were extremely personal and her professionalism is beyond compare- we had some serious microphone problems (from our DJ) and she handled the situation flawlessly, continuing the ceremony with good humor, grace, and completely unfazed. I can not recommend her enough to anyone looking for a dynamic, personable, and professional officiant (and she is completely bilingual in Spanish to boot)!

  • Ariel did such a wonderful job as our wedding officiant! She was so easy to work with and really took the time to learn about my fiance and myself. The ceremony she wrote for us was romantic, sweet, and very personal. She has a great presence and was very clear and easy to understand. Even my grandmother who has to wear hearing aids said that she could completely understand the ceremony and thought it was beautifully written. Ariel is also multi-lingual and speaks Spanish fluently which is a huge plus. Many of our guests commented to us afterwards that she was the best wedding officiant they had ever seen and that our ceremony was one of the most touching. She was amazing!

  • I'm so happy Ariel was our wedding officiant! My family only speaks spanish, so it was necessary to have a bilingual ceremony. Ariel did an excellent job combining both languages (without repeating the same text) in the ceremony. We worked together on defining what was our dream ceremony: she suggested great ideas, she was very flexible with all what we wanted, she was really nice and friendly and incorporated wonderfully our personal touch. She is really professional and prepared. She also helped my husband with some last minute things (although it was not her job!). Our ceremony was magical! I wouldn't change anything. Ariel made it possible :)

  • Like most brides, I was really looking forward to my wedding day. However, the ceremony part loomed an essential but not not focal part. I was taken totally by surprise when it became one of my favorite and most meaningful memories. Even though everything else went the way I'd hoped and the party wore on beyond the patience of the DJ, I was absolutely blown away by our nuptials (as were several others). Ariel took an incredible amount of time and interest to create a wedding where I really felt that all our guests no matter where they were coming from gained a true sense of our story and approach to love. More importantly, everyone participated (not in some hokey way) in making the ceremony a shared experience and as they should, became part of our story. When we say thank you for sharing our wedding day with us we mean it. We are so grateful to Ariel for giving us this privilege! Amelia & Scott Findley

  • Ariel took a lot of time to learn what was really important to my wife and I as she was planning our ceremony. She asked many questions, and incorporated personal touches that made it far from generic, and very much, us. Thanks for everything Ariel!
