|I don't write reviews unless the person or company I worked with has been outstanding. Not good or very good or excellent….outstanding. Pastor John is that person.
He was THE perfect officiant at my daughter's wedding three days ago. I found Pastor John on the internet. I contacted him and we met shortly after. I was late for the appointment but he was very calm and understanding. I truly appreciated that. I loved his demeanour. In fact, I loved it so much, I booked him right away.
We met again so he could meet my daughter and her fiance. They were both very happy and very comfortable with Pastor John. Pastor John explained and read the entire ceremony to my daughter and her fiancé (now husband). He said if they wanted something changed, that was no problem. Within a few hours, they received a variety of options via email. He was willing to meet with them as often or as little as they required. Pastor John wanted to ensure they were comfortable and there were no surprises. He was on top of everything via email or phone calls. He arrived early for the rehearsal. He arrived early for the wedding day. We received so many wonderful comments from guests on the ceremony.
We were truly blessed to have found such a wonderful, caring Pastor to officiate at the most important day for my daughter and her fiancé.
If you are looking for a Pastor to officiate at your wedding…someone who truly cares about your feelings and thoughts and who is willing to go the whole nine yards, I would highly recommend Pastor John. I believe he is the best.

|Pastor John and his lovely wife Reverend Dale worked with us in many capacities to assist us in making our ceremony the best it possibly could and it was. There vast experience was invaluable as Pastor John had to assure all 70 guests that the ongoing delay would only be a little longer and Reverend Dale helped ease the growing panick in the wedding party as the 2 most important bridesmaids were 30 and 45 minutes late. In the end, Pastor John and Reverend Dale made everything come together|
nicely and Pastor John performed a beautiful ceremony.
His professionalism, sincerity, warmth and kindness was what drew us to Pastor John in the first place and he never wavered. A wonderful man who we are glad to have left the most important moment in our life to.

|Pastor John performed our Elopement-Style, Christian Wedding ceremony at the Hycroft in Vancouver, BC. From start to finish, he helped me to put together the pieces to create a beautiful, easy flowing wedding. He created a loving ceremony and even gave us a copy to keep. I would definitely recommend Pastor John when you want personal care given to your ceremony. |

|We were put in contact with Pastor John by another Officiant who was already booked for our day. We have nothing but good things to say about him. He is organized, always on time/early and has thought of absolutely everything to ensure the ceremony goes smoothly. These things include: providing copies of the ceremony for everyone, having a copy of your vows on the day, providing a signing table and chair, offering a repertoire of readings, vows, ring vows to get creative juices flowing, having full flexibility in accommodating couples' wishes - such as removing religious items, or tailoring portions, adding special pieces (unity candle, sand ceremony). His communication is prompt and clear and he makes sure you are organized and ready. Would recommend for sure! We were lucky in that his wife did not have an event that day and assisted our processional as well. Thank you so much for everything you did to make the day go smoothly! You truly have a gift! :)|
|"Pastor John Goes Above and Beyond!", An Eventective User from Surrey, B.C.|
|Pastor John just did our wedding on August 2nd and he did a great job. He is very professional and not to mention very helpful. He knows what he is doing and is willing to go above and beyond what you ask of him. He even helped us by researching places to rent chairs for our ceremony, which he didn't have to do at all but we really appreciated. From your first meeting, to the rehearsal, to the actual ceremony he is in control and this will help you relax knowing that it is one thing less to worry about. You cannot go wrong with him as an officiant.|

|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

|"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|
