We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Steven was amazing from start to finish. He met with us to find out what type of ceremony we were looking for and then provided us with poems, verses, and other literature to help us piece together what would be said at the ceremony. We emailed back and forth countless times, revising our ceremony, to make sure it was perfect. Steven came to the rehearsal and helped everyone visualize what the big day would be like. The day of the wedding, Steven was on time and everything went perfectly. He made us feel like we had known him for decades.
Steven has a wonderful energy to him--he's calming, but upbeat and positive at the same time. He puts a smile on your face just by speaking to you. After the ceremony, everyone asked us how we knew our wonderful officiant, so it was funny to tell them we found him on Google! We can't possibly express how thankful we were that the most important part of our wedding day felt so special and intimate, all thanks to Steven.

We wanted to take a minute to express our utmost gratitude to you for performing such an amazing ceremony. We knew that it was going to be a refection of us, but even we were touched. We couldn't have received more positive feedback on the ceremony and how heartfelt it was. Several of our friends and family said it was the best ceremony they've attended! We so appreciate the time you took to get to know us, which not only showed your dedication, but encouraged the exact environment of love and support we wanted to create.
- Brooke & Matthew
We received SO many compliments from all of our friends and family about how much they enjoyed our ceremony with you as our officiant. It was everything we wanted it to be, so thank you!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for carrying out an absolutely BEAUTIFUL ceremony this past weekend. Megan and I could not have loved it more, and I kid you not every single person wanted to know all about you and commented on how good of a job you did. You spoke every word with
such sincerity, and the way you told the story helped a lot to put both of us at ease when we were up there.
- Julian & Megan
We stated right off the bat that we wanted a no-frills type of ceremony and wanted our family and friends to be at ease.. We are a gay couple, and wanted the feeling of our wedding to be relaxed, quirky and personal. The ceremony was short and sweet-- Steven's personality, calming voice timbre,
and amazing smile made our moment extra memorable. His energy is unforgettable. Thank you!

East Side Yoga was a beautiful choice for our wedding. The feeling we had in the room was very inspiring. Steven and Elsa are fabulous. Steven met with us a few times, and we corresponded often via email. He truly listened to what we wanted and what we had to say. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. He captured everything we wanted to express, how we felt, and how we loved. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding ceremony.

Steven did an amazing job with our ceremony, and we really couldn't have been happier with anyone else. From the start, Steven was very informative in guiding us through the planning of the ceremony. His calm nature and focused approach was so easy to work with and contributed to the enjoyment
of the whole process. He helped us to create a unique and perfectly personal ceremony with many wonderful suggestions. We were able to include our children in the ceremony in such a meaningful way. Not only did we meet with him a couple of times to connect and plan the big day, but we exchanged multiple emails to create the ceremony that spoke to us as a couple. By the time the wedding approached, it felt as if he were an old friend. Everyone at the wedding was touched, and all the guests raved about how impressed they were with Steven. He led the ceremony with solemnity and levity, bringing both tears and laughter from all involved. He crafted our ceremony into a truly special and forever memorable event. We would happily and enthusiastically recommend Steven to anyone seeking a very special experience.

Steven was the perfect choice for our wedding officiant. We knew from the instant we met him that he'd added the personal touches to our ceremony we were looking for. While he provided a great starting point, we made our contributions which Steven polished into the most incredible ceremony. We are so fortunate to have stumbled upon him - as he'll be always be a part of us. He was very accommodating and gave ideas we never would have
thought of. Thank you so much!
-Amber & Andrew
We feel so fortunate to have found Steven to preform our wedding ceremony. From our first meeting, his warm and thoughtful approach made us feel so much more comfortable about the entire process. He was always available to answer questions and very receptive to our feedback throughout
the planning process. Steven's suggestions for customizing our ceremony helped make it that much more special not just for us, but our guests as well. We had so many of our friends and family ask us where we found him, and tell us that it was one of the most fun and touching ceremonies they had ever attended. We couldn't have had a better officiant or a more perfect ceremony.
