I hired Chris for my Best Friends wedding...money well spent. He was fantastic, so helpful, extremely personable and made everyone feel like family. His personality is amazing and had the whole wedding party smiling. If I ever get married I would hire him again for sure.

Chris’s vibe made our ceremony so special. He brought warmth, excitement, humor, realness, and ease all while hitting all the important points. People shared that it was the best ceremony that they have ever experienced and it really set the tone for a magical love filled night. He is the best officiant I could ever imagine.
