  • John is an amazing officiant who genuinely enjoys being a part of your special day. Our first meeting with him, he already had a solid plan for the flow of the ceremony and let us customize aspects to fit our vision. Day of the wedding, John remained cool calm and collected although the ceremony was slightly delayed. John is an absolute pleasure to work with - you won't be disappointed!

  • Asking John to officiate our wedding was one of the best decisions. He made our ceremony the easiest part of planning the wedding. I appreciate his responsiveness, caring and outgoing personality! He was a pleasure to work with and made everything seamless during planning and ceremony itself.

  • John was exactly what we needed. He whipped all of our bridesmaids and groomsmen into shape. He made sure everyone was attentive and doing their part. He knows what he is doing and I'm glad we had him he rolled with punches even when our mic went out he didnt let it stop him.

  • Yours Forever Wedding was everything we expect. He was on time, preplanning and wedding day. Preplanning, we went out for coffee, (my fiancé, son, John and I) we talked and got to know each other better. He went into detail and made the process simple and put our mind at ease. He usually would stay in the Sacramento area but was willing to travel about an hour away to officiate. And not only that, he didn’t charge us extra for the travel. We appreciated that a lot as we had a lot of expenses. His communication is A1. He’s honest and you can tell he loves what he do. We would definitely recommend him. He will not disappoint.

  • Doug and I had the pleasure of meeting with John Spears over breakfast on 02/17/2018. We spent hours enjoying each other’s company. We discussed all our backgrounds, how Doug and I met and answered one very thought-provoking question by John. What is your goal in getting married? That was the first time that question was presented to us as a couple. Usually we get the "congrats" and "when is the date?" Never the why. John's history provides him with true perspective on the challenges of marriage and how to overcome them. With him being married to his lovely wife (that I can't wait to meet) Stephanie for over 40 years, he is a wealth of knowledge on the subject. John gave us sound advice on communication, maintaining our individuality, and making each other happy. Keeping our union first and not allowing egos to guide us away from each other. John is awesome! Doug and I left the breakfast meeting full - both physically and spiritually. I am looking forward to our wedding and havi... Read more

  • John did an amazing job! We had a few technical difficulties because our venue's electrical outlets did not support our speaker equipment and the mic we provided John was not working. Needless to say he continued to guide our ceremony in the right direction and kept me calm and focused on my husband to be even though the mic was not working. Our ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt and THANK YOU John!

    Thank you sooooo much Whitney. I’m still in awe of you and Christopher and those absolutely beautiful children. You’ve got a great life ahead of you. God Bless your family.

  • Mr. Spears was on time, professional, well dressed and all around great. Our ceremony was short, sweet and heartfelt. As a bride, it was one less thing on the long list of things to worry about. Highly recommend.

  • My fiancé and I met with John over dinner for a pre-wedding marriage counseling session. He was prompt, professional and took the time to get to know more about us and our relationship together and as individuals. He gave us invaluable advice and direction. We discussed every aspect of our ceremony and wedding day schedule. Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.

  • So I'm sure we're all learning that when it comes to weddings we need to expect the unexpected. A month away from our wedding we still needed an officiant and as soon as we reached out to Pastor Spears we were meeting him and his lovely wife the following week for dinner. If I could give Pastor Spears a 12 star review instead of the 5 I would, he was definitely the Calm before the storm. What I loved is that he made the whole experience feel like family instead of business and to me that's priceless!

  • John Spears was an excellent officiant and was wonderful to work with. He was easy to get into contact with and made sure the ceremony was exactly how we wanted it. He and his wife were wonderful people and made the entire wedding ceremony (from the rehearsal to the I-do's) a beautiful experience. I would highly recommend John, as he is professional, kind, and organized. -Beth & Jordan
