Warn, he put us at ease that our wedding ceremony would be heartfelt, memorable and most importantly be about us and the love we share for one another. I can truly say he delivered on all of his promises. Eric has a special gift for speaking and can really command the attention of your audience so that not only are you and your future spouse enjoying your ceremony but your guests are as well.

Warn to any couple.” Chris and Shawna Schafer.
“Planning a destination wedding from Florida was not easy, but wedding officiant Rev. Eric Warn worked closely with us via email and telephone to ensure that everything would be perfect on our wedding day. His organizational and attention to detail skills put us at ease during both the rehearsal and the wedding ceremony. His punctuality and professionalism were second to none. He is also a very talented writer and we will always remember the vows he helped us to prepare. We will certainly recommend his services to any future brides and grooms.” Jamil and Rebekah Daoud
“Our ceremony was amazing and wedding officiant Rev. Eric Warn did a great job of keeping us focused on each other and his words, even though there was so much going on around us. We both loved his idea of exchanging flowers on our wedding day and our anniversary. During wedding ceremonies commitments are made, kind words are spoken and two people are brought together, but what is sometimes missed is that the ceremony is just the beginning of the journey. Rev. Eric’s ceremony and the marvelous vows he wrote made that journey something for us to look forward to. His wonderful language also gave us the invaluable capability to remind each other of our love without having to find the right words (we loved his suggestion to place a flower on each other’s pillow in times of hardship. This is something that we, as a couple, will hold dear forever and will probably even pass it on to our children. Rev. Eric’s simple suggestion speaks volumes and for it to be offered on the most important day of our lives is a gesture we will never forget.” Alex and Lisa Pelling

We highly recommend him.” Jeff and Evie Bozak

As a matter of fact, we had several people tell us that the rose ceremony was one of the most touching moments that they had witnessed at a wedding ever. Your calm, cool, and collected demeanor undoubtedly help us overcome our pre-wedding jitters. Your patience with the unruly groomsman was also very much appreciated. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks. All the best to you Eric!” Brett and Lauren Ware
“Thank you so much to wedding officiant Rev. Eric Warn for conducting a beautiful, meaningful and memorable ceremony. We were planning our wedding from the other side of the country and Eric was easy to reach, quick to respond, and very open to email and conference call correspondence. Eric was also willing and able to work with integrating traditional Persian aspects into our ceremony which made it special for us. We had a number of guests compliment our ceremony and Eric’s heartfelt delivery. It was such an amazing day and I’m glad Eric was able to be a part of it! Thank you!!” Chris and Layla Bates
“Eric, We are so very glad that you were a part of our special day as the wedding officiant. The ceremony you wrote was beautiful, meaningful and represented us and what we wanted to say to each other exceptionally well. And your presentation was polished and professional, while still coming across as heartfelt. I heard from many of our guests how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and how touching it was. Several people felt compelled to tell me how pleased they were that you came out of the chapel to welcome them and let them know that the ceremony would not start without them! They felt like you took care of them very well. In short, the ceremony certainly would not have been the same without you, and we appreciate your participation very much!” Scott and Sharon Brabec

And despite the fact that my family did not speak any English, you were able to communicate with them and make everything as easy as possible for everyone, which we greatly appreciated. We very much appreciate that you went above and beyond to help me incorporate both the Bulgarian and American traditions in the ceremony, but you also researched and learned Bulgarian words which you used during the ceremony. Michael and I loved working with you – thank you for everything.” Michael and Meggy Cline
“We couldn’t have asked for a more special day and Rev. Eric Warn was a huge part of that as our wedding officiant. He was so warm and personable that we felt like we had known him for years. It wasn’t just us, our guests all commented on how lovely the ceremony was. The vows created were so uplifting and heartfelt to not just us but also our guests. So much so, that some of our guests shared they felt a renewed love for each other as well. It is without hesitation that we’d recommend Rev. Warn to any couple looking for a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony with lots of smiles and laughter as well.” Aaron and Miracal Watson
“Wedding officiant Reverend Eric was a blessing when it came to officiating our wedding. We had planned on writing our own vows, but because when we met with him he had the most fitting and beautiful words already out together, we no longer needed to. He is humorous and easy to get along with. Our guests loved him, and everyone was very impressed by his professionalism and grace. Thank you Eric for being such a vital part of our big day!” Jessica and Alvin Tate
“When we first met wedding officiant Rev. Warn, I knew he would be the person officiating our wedding. As people who do not go to church on a regular basis, we struggled to decide who could officiate our wedding that would do a wonderful job while still making our ceremony personal and meaningful. He was so warm and welcoming and incredibly organized. He came to our meeting with a contract and vows for us to read to see what our ceremony would be. I almost started crying during that meeting because everything he had written was so wonderful! Rev. Warn is perfect for anyone, because he can cater his ceremonies to any denomination and do it to any religious level you desire. We had a complicated request and he made it seem like it was no big deal and gave us the absolutely perfect wedding ceremony. On our wedding day, he was there early to greet guests and keep things organized and running smoothly. It was like having our own wedding planner for the ceremony because he is so organized and professional. We even had last minute changes from our rehearsed processional and he still made it seem flawless. In terms of the actual ceremony, every attendee of our wedding said he was the best officiant they had witnessed. People said his inserts of humor were tasteful and well timed while not taking away from they heartfelt tone. Since he writes his own ceremonies, it was very unique and incredibly meaningful.
Thank you so much for helping to make our day perfect! xoxo” Johnathan and Madelyn DeLong
“From the very first meeting, my husband and I had an immediate connection with Rev. Eric. He has a very comfortable yet professional demeanor with a great sense humor. Throughout the whole process, Eric was very helpful and responsive to all of our questions. The day of he continued to impress us by doing a beautiful job officiating and making all of our guests feel comfortable ~ he set a tone that included laughs and tears which was the perfect ceremony for us.” John and Mary Johanson
“Both Scott and I can’t thank Eric enough for the level of assistance that he provided at our wedding and reception. His level of professionalism and compassion was exactly what we were looking for, and we can’t thank him for taking such focus and care on the involvement of our family and beliefs (religious attributes). We received many compliments from our family and friends afterward about how beautiful and heart felt the ceremony was and how it was full of love; especially the symbolism of the roses and the sand. Thank you Eric for all of the time an effort you put in to making our wedding day much more memorable and that much more special!!!” Scott and Amy O’Keefe
“Rev. Warn was everything we could have hoped for in a wedding officiant. He made our day just fabulous with his expertise, kindness, professionalism, humor, understanding and respect for our choices. Plus, he had wonderful ideas to help us with our vows and ceremony. I highly recommend him to be your officiant.” Bob and Carol Allen
“Reverend Warn’s officiating was one of the highlights that made our wedding super successful and special. His delivery style had the perfect blend of candor, familiarity and liveliness that made the ceremony both solemn and fun for us, our wedding party and our guests. He was also great for a couple like us who were looking for the right balance between traditional Christian and modern, non-denominational ceremonies often seen in the Seattle area. We also wanted someone with tons of experience and the credentials that accompany that vs. some person who got their license online just a couple years ago. More than a few friends approached us later in the evening, and the first thing they pointed out as a highlight of the day was Reverend Warn’s officiating. We highly recommend him!” Alonso and Andrea Velasquez
“John and I could not be happier that we found you Rev. Warn! It was hectic trying to plan a wedding states away. I was very relieved once I wrote you a message and you called me that same day. It is very obvious you know what you’re doing! You make sure the bride is prepared and knows exactly what to expect. I love how we could review our ceremony script and change it any way to make it our own. I just cannot thank you enough and express to you how grateful I am that you spoke to John and myself right before the ceremony started. I was a ball of nerves! Once we had finished talking I felt relaxed; which was a feeling I really hadn’t felt all day. The ceremony was beautiful. Your words were perfect. Thank you, again and again!” John and Natasha Leighton
“Wedding officiant Rev. Eric Warn made my wedding feel so special. He added humor and romance to the ceremony it self and he really fit in with what we wanted. A few weeks after our wedding my grandmother passed away and we knew the only person we wants to do her funeral ceremony was him. He is great and works with all occasions. I recommend him to everyone I can! Thank you for being a part of our wedding and saying goodbye to our loved one.” Ryan and Kristen Meier.

Many people afterward, said they thought it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We would highly recommend him!” Keldy and Alison Hendricks
“If you are about to get married, choosing Rev. Eric Warn as your officiant is a smart decision. He was absolutely fabulous. I have attended many weddings and even officiated one myself, and this guy is the best. A little bit pricier than some others, but his quick responses, personable nature and flexibility of ceremony is worth every penny. I had attempted to contact a few others and wasnt even getting a response within a few days(South Sound Weddings took 12 days to respond…). Eric emailed me back the same day. Perfect wedding ceremomy, wonderful man, and lovely wife who helped coordinate the ceremony. Would pay double what I paid happily after knowing how great Eric Warn was going to be. Thanks Eric” – The DeLoachs
“Rev. Warn was the best! This was a multi-cultural wedding and his thoughtful service made all in attendance feel welcome and comfortable. His addition of humor during the ceremony helped calm the nerves of both bride and groom. If you are handling your own wedding without a wedding coordinator, Rev Warn provides invaluable assistance with the ceremony from rehearsal all the way through filing of the certificate.” Daniel and Monita Martin
“We had a lot of guests and a DJ providing audio for the ceremony. Rev Warn preferred to use his own mic despite our efforts to convince him otherwise. All guests were able to hear Rev Warns mic so this was a non issue. We were very happy with all other aspects and definitely recommend Rev Warn for your event. Professional, funny, confident, and a good speaker. He made the rehearsal fun and painless. Nice man.” Private User

From the first communication, Rev. Warn was extremely professional and helpful. He was prompt with replies and made everything very easy and relaxed, which allowed us to feel comfortable and feel he truly cared about a couple he had yet to meet. We saw the wedding language ahead of time and it was beautiful, meaningful, and evoked tears in both our eyes even before the wedding day! On the day of the ceremony, Rev. Eric helped make the day perfect and the touches he added to the ceremony the day of were natural and heartfelt. If we could get married again, we’d choose Rev. Eric Warn to be our wedding officiant.” Mike and Allie Devine

“Coordinating a wedding by email can be challenging, especially from another country. As a Canadian couple driving down from Victoria to have you marry us, we were not sure about the venue you had picked out for us, but once we saw Pioneer Park in Steilacoom we were blown away. It was the perfect location. Being right on the water (Puget Sound) was awesome and the weather turned out gorgeous. Your caring attitude and flexibility regarding our needs and paying close attention to exactly what we wanted in both the location and the wedding language was above and beyond. We loved meeting both you and your wife (she is so sweet). Again, thanks so much for serving as our wedding officiant.” Bronson and Adrienne Anderson

He takes the time to truly understand the couple in order to convey their values as they make this commitment to each other. He is able to bring experience and perspective to the day while keeping the couple and audience engaged. He brought tears to my eyes and helped us to express how much this day means. The promises we made will help to ensure our marriage lasts forever. My guests told me Reverend Eric Warn performed the best ceremony they ever attended and half of the audience was in tears with joy.” Lee and Crystal Nicholls
