Reverend Erick Olsen married my wife, Marzena, and I at Roughland Estate in Norfolk, CT on July 14, 2012. Words cannot explain how happy we were with the way the ceremony was conducted. Before meeting Rev Olsen in person the week of the wedding, we had gotten to know him through a couple of skype chats. These in addition to a questionnaire were very helpful in us getting to know each other. While meeting with him in person before the wedding, we found him to be extremely personable and sincere in his desire to help make our wedding special. Rev Olsen was very open in discussing the format of the wedding and to adding anything in that we requested. For example, my wife is Polish and we added in a wedding custom of bread, salt and wine. Additionally, he helped us incorporate in the ceremony some other symbols and metaphors of incorporating God into our marriage. Rev Olsen words during the ceremony were very meaningful especially his prayers about some of the people who could not be there that day.
On a personal level, I would also like to thank Reverend Olsen. I was a little bit nervous and he was talking to me a lot and whispering throughout the ceremony words of encouragement. Also, my wonderful wife was a few minutes delayed coming down the aisle and it was Rev Olsen and I at the altar for a few minutes. He had a very controlled, calming influence, allowing me to relax then and throughout the ceremony.
Overall, everything was conducted gloriously and we are lucky and thankful that we found him to perform our marriage. When we visit Norfolk again, we will certainly stop for a Sunday service and thank him again!
