About Us

YES, despite the Coronavirus crisis, I can still lead a small or large wedding even on very short notice! We can also plan for a larger, more formal "normal" wedding for when that is possible given state restrictions. Don't know how to get a license because county offices are closed? I know how to help you get one anyway to be legally married! Call or text 951-234-6538 for more info! And keep reading!

I'm Rev. Dr. Jeff Saville of SoCal Christian Weddings, based in Temecula, California. I am retired Navy chaplain (I served 26 yrs) and a traditionally trained and ordained Christian minister with 30+ years of pastoral experience in civilian churches and military settings. With that background, I can provide you with a ceremony that will reflect your spirituality supported by my authentic pastoral presence that will put you and your guests at ease. Upon your request for info, I will send you a very detailed quote for service, including a first/customizable draft of a ceremony, photos of different outfits I can wear (you can choose for me to wear a suit/tie, minister's gown, or something more casual for beach/backyard settings), along with information on how to obtain your marriage license, and more. You can review all this info together as a couple, and then we can work out a time to meet in person or if distance is a concern, by phone/Zoom/Facetime. Working together, we will co-create a customized and highly personalized ceremony of about 20 minutes that you will cherish for the rest of your life! (If you request a quote for service, please be sure to tell me the venue & city for your ceremony, along with the date and time--even if you are still working out details, your best guess will help me provide you with the best information about my availability and fee--thank you!)

Services Offered
When working with me, I will listen to understand your dream for your wedding ceremony. I can help you write your own vows if you choose, and can include a sand ceremony, wine ceremony or even involve your children; whatever you want to make your ceremony just right. I also offer optional premarital counseling (relationship & commuications coaching) in 3 sessions in person or by Zoom/FaceTime if you are far away--done it that way many times for people out of state. After the ceremony, I provide you with a keepsake marriage certificate and the actual script used in the ceremony, plus I will ensure your marriage license is filled out correctly by your witnesses and filed correctly with the state. My other wedding officiant services include the following:

  • Eloquent native English speaker, able to conduct portions of the ceremony in Spanish or German
  • Optional Premarital Counseling/Relationship Coaching (using insights from the SYMBIS online relational assessment)
  • Fully customized ceremony, I can help you write your own personalized vows if you choose
  • Ceremony length from 10-25 minutes, depending on your choices
  • Licensed officiant in all 50 states

  • We booked Jeff two years out, so we had a lot of time to plan our wedding. He provided us a detailed walk through how the ceremony will be 2 years prior to the wedding day and follow up and checked in with us throughout our planning process via phone and email. He offered different options based on your preference starting from the way he comes dressed to the details and options of the vows. Come 2020, everything that was planned 2 years ago pretty much went out the window due to the corona virus. Jeff reached out to update us on the current situation. We decided to get married on our original date so we scrambled to plan our last minute mini ceremony. Jeff was extremely helpful and adjust everything on his end up until the day of the ceremony due to the uncertainty of everything. We were able to safely get married on our original planned date. Jeff exceeded all our expectations and handled the pandemic really well. Thank you Jeff for making our mini wedding ceremony so memorable durin... Read more
