As a wedding coordinator, I am always in search of the perfect officiant for the days’ event. Reverend Powers is so charismatic and full of love, it radiates throughout his ceremony. It is always a pleasure to work with Reverend Powers. Just the thought of him, brings a smile to my face!

Rev. Powers is AWESOME. Our couples come from all over the country to be married here in San Diego and planning your wedding from afar is even more stressful than a typical local wedding. But after our couples speak to Rev. Powers they are reassured, comforted and very excited to know that they will be working with such a fine person. Time after time I hear comments such as,” He is so Cool” or “I love him”, “Can’t wait to meet him” and “He has such a great sense of humor”. We are very blessed to have him as our wedding minister! Thank You Rev. Powers for all that you do to make wedding dreams come true!

Hi Rev!!
I finally got the pics back from our April 21 wedding at the Del. I attached one for you to include in your book.
I think you were the highlight of the whole wedding!! Everyone kept asking us if we got you from Hollywood and we also kept hearing how much everyone said it was the best ceremony they’d ever been to. That made me happy to hear:)) If you ever want to work in Florida I think you have 150 customers ready to hire you:))

Thanks again,

Thomas and Avery O

Rev. Powers has been on our referral list for over a decade. In that time he has performed many wedding ceremonies at our hotel and we have had nothing but comments from our brides, grooms, and even wedding guests! I also have many personal friends that have been married by Rev. Powers. He even performed my wedding ceremony almost 20 years ago! Needless to say, I am very confident in recommending him, and do so whenever I have the opportunity!

Reverend Powers performed my wedding in 1994 and my daughters Baby Dedication in 2000 at Sea Grove Park in Del Mar. He always brings just the right words and such a feeling of joy to the ceremony and makes it a perfect occasion. He puts just enough of his heart in it to make each event truly personal.


What a terrific article about Reverend Powers. He has performed ceremonies at my work places for years. I’m currently the Director of Food & Beverage at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla and he’s by far our “Most Valuable Minister.” It’s been an honor knowing him for almost twenty years and 4000 ceremonies later, he hasn’t wavered one iota. Still as passionate and caring even dating back to his Balboa Park days. He deserves the entire accolade that’s written.


Dear Reverend Powers,
Just wanted to tell you that we celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Point Loma where you performed our wedding ceremony. We were just reading over the copy of the wedding you gave us and it filled us with memories and happiness. Thank you so much for the wonderful and personal touch.

We hope that life has been treating you well!

I have worked with Rev Powers since taking on the roll as Catering Coordinator at L’Auberge Del Mar in 2000. I have always recommended Rev. Powers as my preferred officiant and the top preferred officiant on the L’Auberge Del Mar vendor services list. Rev. Powers is one of the sweetest, most accommodating gentlemen that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He is always punctual and his appearance is professional. My clients have repeatedly raved about his knowledge and services. Rev Powers has my utmost respect and confidence when it comes to referring his services.

Dear Rev Powers;
Thank you for going the distance for us at our wedding. Your sermon was very uplifting and moving for me, being raised in the church, I was very pleased to hear your voice and your words as I married the love of my life!

The ceremony was just perfect. It had the right combination of serenity, humor and grace.

Dear Reverend Powers,
There are no words to express our thanks for your ceremonial services at our wedding. Your kindness, professionalism, humor and compassion will not be forgotten.
We both felt so comfortable, at ease & wonderful knowing you were there performing our wedding, uniting us as one, as husband & wife.
We thank you for all that you did, including the marriage license.
Everyone continues to comment on how wonderful you were and the fabulous vows that you wrote and had us speak. Many have said they were “the most beautiful & loving vows I’ve ever heard”.
Thank you Again!
