Hare Krishna. I'm happy to hear the return flight went well! It was truly our pleasure having you perform our wedding ceremony. You really exceeded our expectations and we are confident we made the best decision to work with you.
I speak on behalf of myself, Aarti, our families, and our guests when I say you did an amazing job! We received so much positive feedback on how you performed the whole wedding. Everyone felt so connected with the ceremony and learned so much about the beauty of it all. We were pleased with the whole thing, our families were also extremely happy with it all, and working with you in general leading up to and after the wedding was a great experience. We are so happy with how you collaborated with us and we are so appreciative of your patience and understanding when the cancellation with the inbound flight happened. You were so prepared and extremely considerate to do whatever you could to arrive in time.
Considering every single part of the planning and execution of the wedding, from sharing the ceremony template with us, and the item list, and the way you performed the ceremony in a way that everyone was able to follow, there is no doubt in our minds that you are definitely the best officiant we could have worked with. Even with the extra effort required with a destination wedding, we were very pleased with the whole process and you did so much to make our lives easier, and we think you'd be amazing for any destination wedding. We know for certain that any time someone we know is going to have a Hindu wedding ceremony, we will be happily recommending you as an officiant. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding ceremony a beautiful, successful, and memorable experience for not just Aarti and me, but for all of our guests as well. We really appreciate you! Take care, Saajan and Aarti (Costa Mujeres, MX wedding, February 2022)
We are so happy that Dharmasetu was our co-officient at our fusion destination wedding in Carlsbad, CA. He was so flexible, ready and willing to to bring our non-traditional ceremony vision to life. He really helped all our guests understand the key moments we brought out of our partial Hindu ceremony - so many of my parents friends came up to us and told us how impressed they were with his knowledge, understanding and impeccable Sanskrit. He was humorous and teamed up very well with my cousin, who was the other co-officient. He kept the ceremony so fast, which was EXACTLY what we wanted. He'll make your wedding as long or as short as you want and is really easy to collaborate with - teaching us about things we never knew before. Use him, seriously!

Hare Krishna Pundit Ji,
Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you performed for us. We were so pleased with the warmth, compassion, and humor you brought to the ceremony along with the respect you paid to the traditions and slokas recited. You were so gracious in taking our edits to modernize the ceremony while staying true to the Hindu meaning, and we appreciate that so much! Everyone in attendance raved about how warm and welcoming everything felt and how for many people, this was the first Indian ceremony they actually understood and paid attention 😊 Both our families were also so grateful that you embraced the intimacy of the ceremony and made everyone feel so included.
Thank you again and please let me know if you ever need a referral or a testimonial as we’d be more than happy to provide that!
Best, Anil and Hema
Hi Dharmasteu Ji,
Thank you so much for marrying us! It went so well and we loved all your jokes and the lighthearted way you lead us through the ceremony. Both of our families throughly enjoyed the ceremony and felt like a part of it thanks to your great explanations.
We had so many family members pull us aside to let us know how great of a job you did and how beautiful the ceremony was.
Thank you so much!
Best, Natalie and Zach
Jai Shri Krishna Dharmasetu Das,
We have just returned to San Francisco after our mini-moon. We just wanted to reach out and truly thank you for the incredible job you did. We have started to receive some feedback from family and friends from all over the world who were so impressed by the ceremony. As we start to reflect back on the day Paige and I never had a doubt of how great you were as we had gone thru the full ceremony with you many times. However to bring it all to life was truly your gift to us. We are so thankful for the thoroughness of it all, how you were able to engage not only all of us who were there but also all the people who were there remotely via zoom. In addition to providing context and understanding of the ceremony for all of our guests was very much appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will always remember the ceremony as well as you!
We very much hope to see you again soon, hopefully up here in the bay area. Please let us know if there is someplace where we can provide a review as we would be happy to articulate our amazing experience with you on any platform.
Thanks again for mailing the wedding licence in for us.
Kind regards, Sheil & Paige Broker
