Creative is right!!! I've photographed a lot of weddings, but Bob is by far my favorite wedding officiant. He even worked with me to help me get the perfect photo during the bride and groom's kiss by moving slightly to the side. I know that seems like a small detail, but I know my clients appreciated that photo! Not just that, but I just love Bob's personality. He really captured the emotion of the ceremony - both heartfelt, deep, bring-you-to-tears emotion, and also, fun, hilarious, laugh-out-loud emotion! I can't say enough good things about him - and I'm going to use him as my own officiant when I get married!

Bob is Your Best Choice
My husband and I found Bob through a wedding website and that is one if the best choices we have ever made. Not only is Bob an amazing speaker, he really takes the time to create a ceremony where the guests feel connected to the couple. He asked us for the key parts of our relationship and what we truly value in our life together and he gave a speech that made our guests think he was an old friend of ours. My husband and I are both spiritual people but from different faiths, and we really wanted to create a wedding where all felt welcome. We are very simple and Bob made the ceremony simple for us. I don't have a single complaint or thing I would've changed about our wedding. It was perfect and we are so happy that Bob was a part of it.
Chris and Kassie O
Experienced and knowledgeable and professional. Bob has a way of making you feel at ease, and has a warm friendly smile. He had some good ideas, and worked with us on our vows. We are an older couple and preferred something more casual and he was very accommodating to that. Without reading his bio yet my soon to be wife picked him from his picture saying "he has a friendly smile, let's pick him"
Robert and Soledad S
Bob was funny, polite, professional and really made the mood for rest of the day absolutely beautiful. He exceeded my expectations and I would rate him a 20/10. I can’t thank him enough. Very reasonable pricing considering he drove about an hour out to the wedding. And he was the friendliest officiant I could find. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thanks again Bob, Miguel & Kassandra
Miguel and Kassandra G
We would highly recommend Bob!
Bob did an amazing job at our wedding! He was willing to travel to Yosemite National Park, and really worked with us to customize our wedding day! At the end of the service our photographer (who has done upwards of 60 Yosemite Weddings) said he had never seen anyone so enthusiastic and having fun with the wedding ceremony. Bob truly made our day special, and we cannot thank him enough for being so kind and putting together a ceremony that was catered towards us.
Michael and Katy K
Bob gave the perfect ceremony for my daughter's wedding. His words were full of meaning and love with just the right amount of humor added. I would definitely recommend Bob for your special day, you won't be disappointed.
When we interviewed Bob a year before our wedding for July 6, we knew we had chosen the correct officiant. You can tell right away that he is a people person. He was interested in getting to know us, he explained the whole procedure and was open to using whatever we asked for in our ceremony. He makes the ceremony interesting and at times humorous. We invited him to join us in the reception and he was well liked by our guests. He was awesome!
Joseph and Andraya Ottman
Bob was great from start to finish. When I contacted him, he was approachable and pleasant. We met in a coffee house to discuss what we were looking for and ended up chatting for over an hour about families, kids, sports, and everything in between. Bob always responded to my emails or phone calls. He even gave us ideas on how to spice up our ceremony and keep our guests involved. What I loved most, is he took the time to know who we are and included it in the ceremony. The day of the wedding, he was prompt, patient, and just down right great. He spoke loudly, clearly, and was personable. He really did a great job and is a very kind person. You can't go wrong with him as your officiant. Thank you so much Bob for a great day!
Eric and Sara A
Bob is awesome, we spoke a couple times prior to the wedding. He did an incredible job. He was funny, serious, down to earth and just made it a great ceremony. Made my new amazing bride feel comfortable and at ease with the vows. Everyone had all great comments afterwards on how blessed we were to have found him to officiate. Thank you Bob for a great day!
Lee and Norma P
Absolutely amazing experience! We needed Bob after an unexpected cancel of our ceremony at SF City Hall. Having only a week to find an officiant, Bob responded within minutes of our message. We were on the phone and we could already tell that Bob was an amazing officiant! We only wanted a short ceremony so He gave us a short run down of what was going to happen. At the wedding, we got exactly what we wanted from Bob! Our wedding was short, sweet, funny, and straight to the point! My wife and I HIGHLY recommend Bob as your officiant!
Chaz & Nikki M
Pastor Bob is a God-send. After establishing phone correspondence, it was easy to coordinate plans with Pastor Bob. Most of all, Matt and Christina had the opportunity to speak with Pastor Bob over the phone and immediately liked his demeanor, and were extremely happy with Pastor Bob officiating their wedding ceremony. Pastor Bob performed a beautiful and memorable ceremony, which exceeded our expectations, as he was very professional, cordial and friendly with all the family, friends, and guests. Thank you Pastor Bob for officiating and celebrating with us, as well as with your assistance, diligence and cooperation within such a short period amount of time. Matt and Christina will certainly request your services again for a larger wedding ceremony when they both return from overseas deployment.
Thank you and best regards,
I got Bob for my wedding and he was fantastic. Myself and my fiancé are Indians who wanted a Christian wedding and Bob walked us through each and every step and guided us all along the way. He was always responsive. His words during the ceremony were pleasant and I’m glad I hired him.
Prabhat and Hema K.

Mark and Shawn V
Bob was PHENOMENAL! He was very accommodating and understood what we wanted before we really knew. He is extremely personable and we had so many compliments from our guests about how great he was!
Nathan and Allie D
Thank you for being our officiant! So many people throughout the night asked how we knew you because you did such an amazing job! (Thank goodness for the internet.) Trevor, myself and our audience loved your stories, bits of humor and delivery throughout the whole ceremony. It was perfect for our style of what we wanted.
For others who are trying to find an officiant, you definitely should hire Bob! He caters so well to what kind of style/personality you are looking for. Everyone loved him!
Trevor and Gabrielle E
Bob was great! My husband and I were both so nervous and he really helped keep us on track getting through the ceremony. We can’t thank him enough! He also took care of the paperwork for us which was a big stress relief. We are so happy we found him to officiate our wedding!
Had a wonderful experience working with Bob! He's so helpful & kind! Did a beautiful job at our SF City Hall wedding. Very happy with his services.

Thanks ones again!
Carlos & Diana E
Our day started on a grand stand and you made it quite special for us! Thanks ones again! Bob came to our wedding and helped me complete a promise I made a long time ago to a very important woman. On one of the biggest days of our lives, a man we never met (in person) fit in just like family. We fought through weather and the occasional outburst of wind, however the day seemed perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a more memorable person to unite us.Very funny, very personable highly recommend hiring him, but invite him either way. Everyone enjoyed his presentation.
Eric and Crystal C
Bob reponded with my massage right away when I reached him. He made our wedding more simpler. Me and my husband were comfortable working with him. He was flexible to our needs. We had a simple small wedding on Mt.Tam, Mill Valley. It was memorable.
Byron and Shaya C
Bob did such a good job! He answered my calls, texts, questions really quick and he was overall so helpful and nice! My family couldn't stop talking about how great he did. The words he used at the ceremony were beautiful, and my family liked how funny he was!
Cody and Desirae C
Bob was excellent. He was punctual, was always was helpful with ideas, and made you feel comfortable. He was always open with communication and my guests loved the humor during the ceremony. He was clear in letting us know the order of the vows and paced it so that we wouldn't blank out on what we were saying. Bob definitely took away some of the jitters that come with wedding planning. Once again, thank you so much for being part of our wedding, Bob!
Will and Katarina G
Inviting Bob to be our wedding officiant was the best decision we could have made. He was very professional, had a great sense of humor, and answered all our questions, in a timely fashion. We enjoyed the Christian service he provided and would highly recommend him. He made our wedding very memorable!
Michael and Jean L
We emailed Bob when we found him here on Thumbtack. He was quick to get back to us, set up a time to chat that worked for all of us. He was very responsive to our religious needs as far as the service went. We wrote our story down trusted Bob with the execution & content of the service & we were not disappointed. Everyone said how lovely it was. He made us feel at ease & as you all know you don't need any unnecessary stress. We invited Bob to stay for our tea service & enjoyed getting to know him better, he has a great spirit & presence about him. Thanks for making our service perfect Bob!

Bob did an excellent job as the Wedding Officiant for my son’s wedding. He was very patient even though we were running behind and he was also open with things we wanted added into the ceremony such as my dad giving the opening prayer. He made the ceremony very comfortable for everyone adding a little bit of humor and keeping it at A reasonable length. I will definitely recommend Bob to any of my friends and family.

Rashad and Shahidah B
Bob was an amazing officiant. He made it a point to get together with us well in advance of our ceremony to get to know us as acouple and also go over the ceremony details. He let us decide and pick different elements to add or not to customize a ceremony specifically for us. He was very punctual and dressed very well. He even mailed in our marriage license for us. I would recommend Bob again and again. Such a sweet guy. Thank you Bob.

My wife Kelsey and I are so pleases that we had Bob as our wedding officiant. We received countless compliments from our friends and family on how much they enjoyed our ceremony. Bob was able to set the tone for our wedding from the moment he said "We are gathered here today..." Bob guided our guest through our story with grace and passion. He was able to give a heartfelt ceremony while still making it fun, entertaining, and personal us. Bob allowed us to design our ceremony that best reflected our beliefs and values. He met with us on numerous occasions not only to go over the ceremony details but to get to know us on a personal level.
