My fiancé and I were looking for someone to officiate our wedding in Tiburon and were fortunate to be referred to Reverend McLaird. He was most professional in both his approach to our wedding and his interactions with us. Equally important to us was that he was fun as well.
We had two meetings with him. The first was to get to know each other and describe our vision of the ceremony. During the second meeting, he presented a seminar on what he called, Mastering the Marital Arts. We found this to be extremely helpful and we regularly draw upon its lessons. He also gave us a copy of his book, The Marriage Maze, which is as useful as the seminar.
He allows you as much control over your service as you want. And he can guide you in writing your own service, no matter how religious you want it to be. On the day of the wedding, he was very calming beforehand and performed exceptionally. We received many compliments on Reverend George. I cannot recommend him highly enough. - TB & SP
If anyone asks me to recommend a celebrant, I’ll send them your way.
Dear George, we want to thank you so much for marrying and guiding us in creating ceremony was perfect for our wedding day.
We feel very lucky you were available and we will always remember you presiding over our wedding ceremony as we became husband and wife.
We knew we chose the right person to marry us from the moment we first met you. You provided us the perfect balance between giving us freedom to discover the ceremony we believe would best reflect who we are and providing us with the guidance and information we need to create what we want.Thank you for the love you brought to our ceremony. Much love – L & A

Thank you, George for being a part of our wedding this summer. Our ceremony was perfect. We loved being able to select our own words to express our love and dedication to each other. You did a wonderful job of executing it.

We love George! We put our own ceremony together for our wedding and George was so helpful and supportive of us the entire time. He was so open hearted and full of respect for our vision – giving us different ideas here and there, but inspiring us to remain true to our hearts. He is truly a spiritual man, deep and rich with experience. George was not only a pleasure to work with, but very organized and professional. He has been doing this since 1968 – he definitely knows what he is doing.
On the day of our wedding, walking down the isle – seeing George waiting for us under the Chuppah made us smile and feel calm and grounded. He held the space with love and reflected this outwards to us and all that were there. We couldn’t have asked for a more heartfelt, professional, and enjoyable officiant.
Dear George, Thank you so much for officiating over our wedding day. It means so much to me to have you there, since you have been instrumental to my family from before I was even born. (I conducted her parents wedding ceremony.
Dear Rev. McLaird: I wanted to thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day this past June 10 so wonderful. Every time we think about our wedding day, you are thought of. Your service to us was so amazing, the ceremony was perfect as if it were created just for us. A&M
We cannot thank you enough for our wedding ceremony. We followed your lead and everything went perfectly, except for the flower girl taking what seemed like a half day to enter. Wasn’t she a doll?
Thank you not only for the ceremony but for all of the time you spent with us in preparing. Because of your care, the ceremony was exactly what we wanted it to be. A & R
I was so nervous I thought I would not be able to breathe. Your quiet words to me at the beginning allowed me to relax and actually enjoy the ceremony. PS. We had a wonderful honeymoon at Lake Louise too. Thanks for suggesting it.
Thank you so much for doing such a lovely job marrying us. You were so calm, insightful, warm and friendly and your stories were all a riot. We are delighted you were able to be such an important part of our special day. Yes, thanks for such a great ceremony and for thinking quickly on your feet when we got locked out of the church at the rehearsal. We are very grateful for all your help and hope to see you next time we’re in Marin.

George, the wedding was fabulous. I wish you would send me your “homily.” I loved the advice you gave to the B&G, and it was good for all of us to hear. It’s never too late to make a little shift in the relationship with our sweet darlings. I’ve been to many, many weddings, even ones when I was the wedding person for the altar guild and didn’t know the Bride and Groom never have I been a witness to one that touched me like R and J’s.
George, You were wonderful and we appreciate all that you did for us leading up to the wedding day and on the wedding day. We both are so happy that we chose you as our officiant–we couldn’t have had a better one than you. Thanks for taking the reins on our wedding day so we wouldn’t have to worry about anything. You certainly helped keep me calm and collected the day of and I truly appreciate that!
