El-Farouk (Khaki) was our dream officiant and we chose him specifically, creating a ceremony that deeply represented and celebrated both who we are and the building of community as part of our love and relationship. El-Farouk brought his own beautiful words and offerings to the ceremony and many of the people present said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had witnessed. Working with All Seasons was very straightforward and supportive and we are grateful to have had an officiant who could hold and celebrate us well.
We would like to thank El-Farouk from the bottom of our hearts for a beautiful ceremony! He is a kind, compassionate and gentle soul. The moment we met him, we knew he was the perfect person to marry us. With an elegant balance of attentiveness and tranquility, El-Farouk eased our stresses and brought his loving energy to our special day. El-Farouk is an accepting and inclusive officiant who projected warmth and positivity throughout the evening. There is no one else we could have imagined bringing our souls together than El-Farouk. THANK YOU El-FAROUK - WE TRULY LOVE YOU! Ian and Sam 06/10/17

We chose El-Farouk Khaki was our officiant as we felt tightly aligned to his values and world view. We could not have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. El-Farouk is kind, fun, passionate and caring. He respected our wishes for a short, sweet, and secular wedding ceremony and was easy to communicate with and is genuinely a lovely person!
