|"A Fantasy Wedding", An Eventective User from Langley, BC|
|Our wedding was truly a fantasy come true for us. Our journey started when we first met Pastor John. Right from the start he made us so comfortable and relaxed answering all of our questions and reassuring us that it would be a beautiful and magical ceremony, which it was. He was always available to deal with any of our concerns whether they be big or insignificant. Our rehearsal was held and his demeanor made the bridal party totally comfortable and at ease with the ceremony. When the big day arrived and with the constant threat of rain, the sun came out and we were quite sure that Pastor John and Pastor Dale had some king of divine intervention or at least had the ear of the man upstairs. Call on Pastor John or Dale for a truly unforgettable experience. Kindest Regards Gerrie and Noel|

|If you are looking for not just a typical wedding officiant... but someone who can provide a service above and beyond of what you envision for your wedding ceremony... then choose Pastor John! The service that he provided for our wedding was excellent! :)|
My husband is Latino and I'm Filipina and Pastor John was able to help us create our own unique wedding ceremony that is still linked to our Catholic religion while incorporating some unique Filipino/Latino wedding traditions.
I truly appreciate the time and attention that Pastor John provided to us. Our first meeting was at Starbucks and right off the bat he came prepared with a sample of what our wedding ceremony can be. He provided us with many options in regards to readings and little processes that we can change or adjust to suit the wedding ceremony that we wanted.
During our wedding rehearsal, Pastor John brought his wife Dale and both of them were a super team in helping us guide our wedding party from beginning to end. *A big thanks goes out to Dale for being so helpful throughout the rehearsal and our actual wedding day! ^_^
The service fee that we were charged was very reasonable... especially knowing the quality of the service that we were provided was beyond outstanding.
Thanks again Pastor John & Dale for making our wedding ceremony flawless! ^_~
Lots of love,
Joyce & Alejandro

|- Paster John was very well organized and prepared|
- We felt well guided thorough the process from beginning to end and we felt comfortable every step of the way
-All the steps were clearly explained and he helped us with choosing several different possibilities for the ceremony and added special touches to the ceremony with options for different poems, readings and vows to choose from if you decide not to prepare your own words.
- Pastor John took the time to explain the wedding party what they should be doing
- He gave a lot of assurance that if something were to not go as planned during the ceremony, that he had our back to get things back on track smoothly
- We have two different cultural backgrounds and Pastor John handled the nuances and family expectations wonderfully
- Overall a great person to work with.
|"Couldn't have asked for a better Officiant!!!!!", An Eventective User from Surrey, BC|
|Pastor John was just the right fit for us! We had a simple little outdoor wedding (non religious but beautiful wording!) and met him and his wife (who is also an officiant and a backup) at Tim Hortons first. They put us so at ease with their qualifications and professionalism, but also with their warm and caring personality. We had a very tiny but wonderful cozy outdoor wedding in a park and from the very first email I sent him, we were so grateful and glad that he was the one that did our wedding, being very organized with wording that we could choose to fit our very life. He even emailed us a few photos on the same day and a copy of our completed marriage certificate which he mailed right away as he handled everything for us, even when we had an emergency and had to change our venue. We were more than thrilled with him and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and everyone!!!!!|

|We got married just two weeks ago and it wouldn't have been complete without Pastor John! We planned our wedding last minute and we are lucky to have found him. During our first meeting, he came very prepared with his lovely wife. Our first impression about them was already a very positive one. During that meeting, we were sure that we want him to officiate our wedding. He was very friendly, pleasant, and warm. He has a very soothing and calm voice that captured me and my husband. We are overall very satisfied and pleased with his service. He was on time for both the rehearsal and the wedding - even arrived early actually! He also helped us get our marriage license by giving advice and a print out of instructions and locations of where we can get it. He was always open for communication via email and he replied promptly. We did not encounter any problem, any trouble at all. We recommend Pastor John to any couple who wants to get married and is looking for an awesome officiant! Thank you Pastor John for everything!!! :) - Kieth and Janel|

|"Absolutely would recommend to anyone!", An Eventective User from Victoria, BC (Wedding in Vancouver BC)|
|We had a civil ceremony (that he helped us to create...very flexible with what your ceremony would be like) and are absolutely delighted with the service. He is a very caring, patient, professional and thorough person. It really felt like he was there to guide you instead of someone who is there making a business out of it. We live in Victoria so I originally told him I wanted to book him even before meeting him since it is very difficult to find time to ferry over & arrange a meeting. He was patient with us and offered to hold the wedding date for us without any pressure to book him until we could find time to meet him and get to have a feel of each other. Once we met, he answered many burning questions regarding wedding ceremony, gave tips on things we never even thought about, and reassured us that post-wedding stuff, such as marriage certificate submission, will be taken care of by him as well. We booked him on the spot. He emailed us 1 month prior to the wedding to finalize some details (I was very grateful for it since I was in utter shambles and had forgotten about contacting him). Everyone at the rehearsal (family, wedding party) commented on how much they liked him, as he was very kind and professional when he was teaching them how the ceremony should go down. It was such a relief have him in charge during the rehearsal and watch him teach our wedding party stuff about the wedding ceremony because we could finally stop sounding like bossy control freaks. During the ceremony, his service was sweet and touching and after the wedding day, he submitted the marriage license for us while we were heading to our honeymoon. When we got back, we came home to the completed marriage certificate from the government and a package from Pastor John containing a personally produced certificate of marriage and a copy of the script for our ceremony. Also, he emailed us a copy of marriage application we signed during ceremony...very thorough!|

|"Pastor John is AWESOME!!", An Eventective User from Pitt Meadows|
|Pastor John is amazing. We couldn't have asked for anyone better to be the officiant at our wedding. From the moment we met up until the end of our ceremony he put us at ease. He was quick with email responses and showed up early to everything. |
