“Jennifer and Rick were a team that made us feel comfortable. We knew that they had hundreds of clients, but they made us feel like family.”
“They really listened to everything we wanted and put together a program that was perfect.”
“The ceremony was incredibly personal and customized, and delivered with warmth and enthusiasm.”
“We were beyond happy with how the ceremony turned out. Reverend Tan was very clear and everything went according to plan.”
“We had a general idea of what we were looking for, and Rev. Tan provided us with templates. We met to go over the templates and really get on the same page for the ceremony program and flow. He then helped us with our wedding vows. He read over them and helped edit them so that they were perfect.”
“Everything we asked for they delivered, and exceeded our expectations.”

Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
Why should someone hire you?Weddings fill us with joy, hope, and bliss! We have been a part of hundreds of weddings over the years, and we love the unique beauty of each one. Offering guidance and support, we work with couples to create the perfect ceremony.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?Our own wedding was the most amazing day! Our officiant said the words that we selected and our musicians played our special songs, creating a wedding that was truly about us and our life together. We decided that we wanted other couples to have the same customized, blissful experience. We had played music in weddings for years and had seen a variety of ceremonies before we began officiating in 2003. We continue to be drawn to couples who want customized ceremonies.
Tell us about a favorite, unusual or very interesting moment at a wedding:We will always remember a Gothic-themed outdoor wedding when it started to rain, and the rings slipped out of the Best Man's hands! The couple loved that it rained and decided to look for the rings later (they found them in the grass!).
What makes a wedding memorable for you?What seems to leave a lasting impression for us in the ceremony is when the couple exchanges a genuine, tender, loving, unscripted, humorous moment of vulnerable charm and true love.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?Plan early, seek advice from wedding professionals, hire outstanding vendors like those found in Here Comes The Guide, take some time off the week before the wedding, and enjoy every moment of your wedding day!
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?We want the power to control the weather so we can officiate year round and it's a lovely 76 degrees (for the guests) with pretty clouds and diffused sun (for the photographers).
What's your favorite marriage advice?Be the advocate for each other: by honoring and celebrating what makes each of you special and unique, it strengthens your partnership.
About This Company
Rick and Jennifer Tan of Tan Weddings & Events know from experience how important it is for a wedding ceremony to reflect a couple’s combined spirit. Rick is Filipino and Catholic, while Jennifer is English, Armenian, Croatian, and Methodist, so when they got married they needed a wedding officiant who was comfortable melding diverse religions and cultures. They found one, and couldn’t have been happier with the result.
Now, as wedding officiants themselves, Rick and Jennifer balance professional customer service with a warm, caring spirit. Their main objective is to craft wedding vows that incorporate your unique personalities, spirituality, and cultural backgrounds.
