  • Johnny was always very sweet, transparent and professional during my interactions with him prior to the ceremony. I was ultimately disappointed in his performance during the actual ceremony on my wedding day. Johnny kept saying “Cody” instead of my husbands name “Cory” despite our efforts to attempt to correct him during the ceremony. He also rushed the announcement of the newlyweds and no one heard it as they were still clapping from our first kiss as husband and wife, leading for a mildly awkward exit when the clapping stopped.... Considering the amount we paid Johnny I honestly expected him to at least get our names correct or stick around for an apology for his mess up but he left quickly after the ceremony and I was not even able to get a professional photo taken with him. I still married the love of my life and had a wonderful night, but I would have preferred our ceremony to not have felt so rushed and for the names to have been correct.

    Oh, I am so very sorry. Please accept my sincerest apologies. Regarding photos, I arrived an hour early at which time photos were taken. But, that does not erase my big mistake regarding Cory's name. I feel very badly about this.

  • Johnny was so sweet and encouraging. He worked hard to accommodate and blend our Jewish and Mexican Catholic traditions into one beautiful ceremony. He took the time to get to know us, reassure us, and truly make sure that our ceremony was of our own design. Our guests won't stop raving about how insightful his explanations of each unique aspect of our traditions were and how wonderful the ceremony was overall. We cannot imagine a better experience!

    Wow, Mari, thank you for such an awesome review. It was my honor to help make Your Special Day truly that for you.

  • Johnny was great to work with! We met with him in person once to get to know each other and from there all other communication was done via email. Any time we had a question he was quick to respond. We wanted a basic, no-frills ceremony and that’s exactly what Johnny delivered. We were able to incorporate our own, personal vows which made the ceremony that much more special. We would recommend Johnny to anyone needing an officiant for their ceremony.

  • Johnny is just one of the nicest people we’ve ever met. We found him through the Knot and set up a meeting to see if he was the officiant that we were looking for. He was so kind and we were sold right away. The vows that he uses are beautiful and he kept communication open from the first meeting through our wedding day. He was at the venue early and made the ceremony personal to us even though we just chose his standard non-religious ceremony. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you Johnny!

  • He was not the perfect fit for us. I communicated exactly my special needs, I had a complicated situation but they're was a solution and he did not follow through as discussed. Either he forgot or just didn't want to. We were behind on schedule and from my friends and family he made it clear he was not sympathetic or patient. My ceremony was not how I wanted it. Im not badgering the Rev. I'm simply giving my honest review. My advice is, find an officiant that will show you on paper the exact words that will be used. The verse he recited was short and far from beautiful. Look around, talk to 10 officiants. I wish I would have.

  • This man came to my only daughter’s wedding on the beach, demanded money up front, then walked off the beach after going here and there to make himself in the photos. I’m a novice photographer and wanted to photograph my only child’s wedding. I was running all around trying to get pics, and he was leading them away from me! Before I could get everyone together, he was leaving! Literally, I looked up and he was leaving the beach!! I paid this man, yet her never asked me if I needed anything! Do not waste your time and money with this man. He couldn’t care less!
