Pastor Brian was absolutely amazing from start to finish. There are no amount of words that can describe how wonderful he is. We started out by completing the questionnaire and he promptly texted us that he was available and we discussed a time to speak. He called us right on time and we went over what we wanted during our wedding and more importantly he listened to our story. He’s so easy and fun to speak to. After speaking with him we knew he was definitely the one we wanted to marry us. On the day of the wedding he showed up early and performed the wedding exactly like we asked. My family loved him. He’s truly a man of God and we were so thankful for that. We had to also ask him to come and pray at a funeral and he did that as well. He is amazing and anyone wanting a great officiant look no further than Pastor Brian.Nov 20, 2020Verified
Pastor Brian did a wonderful ceremony for me and my now husband. He responded quickly, accommodated us in such short notice (one day before wedding day) and he was very kind to drive almost 2 hours just to officiate our little ceremony in Daytona Beach. He prayed for both of us and I felt so much love and warmth. Anybody would be blessed to have Pastor Brian at any special ceremony. Thank you again Pastor, you have touched our lives and may you continue to do it to other people as well. More blessings to you!Apr 4, 2020Verified
As the mother of the groom, I contacted Brian in a panic within weeks of the wedding when plans for an officiant could not materialize. There are many officiants available, however, it was important to us that our selection would also be an ordained pastor, which he is. I was so impressed with Brian's philosophy and approach to his role in planning for the ceremony. Almost as important was the fact that despite Brian's popularity and the late date, he said that he would be able to officiate at my son's wedding. There was a delay in finalizing the plan, nonetheless his services were secured. Despite the distance Brian had to travel to the venue, he did not hesitate to be willing to be present at the Rehearsal and dinner and the Ceremony the next day. Also, Brian spent time meeting with my son and his bride prior to the wedding to develop a clear understanding of their relationship and vision of what they wanted for the ceremony. Brian's professionalism Andy sincerity were evident throughout, and he did not hesitate to interact with our guests. I highly recommend Brian to those considering an officiant for a Christ-focused wedding.Jan 31, 2020Verified
If I could sum up the defintion of having an experience such as a wedding tailored to all my needs being met, it would be called Pastor Brian. This man showed up as a man of God/extended family member/chaplain. He gave us good stories, testimonies, and gems of wisdom that I will be taking into my life as a man/man of God/husband. He also brought his wife who was gracious enough to supply us with her photography and video skills for our memories!! As well as give us an example of what time in a marriage looks like. Anyone who takes the time to read this review, just know if you clicked on his thumbnail, you've started the journey of making the right choice with Pastor Brian! God BlessAug 28, 2020Verified
Pastor Brian was the best...he catered to our desires and actually was able to make us more comfortable. He went above and beyond and anyone would be lucky to have him not only as an officiant but as a guestAug 7, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do everything I can to provide the best, professional, appropriate, and fun services of a wedding Officiant at at fair price for just about anywhere in the state of Florida. I do not want money for getting help to be an impairment to getting that help. Your donation is all-inclusive. There are no hidden fees for travel or rehearsals or whatever may come up. If you want to give me more than the $200 to cover additional costs (or just because you want to), I will not refuse the money BUT I will not expect anything more than what is agreed to. I can see how providing additional services like photography, sound, or travel fees for those places of significant distance from where I am based from could be a way to make more money from this kind of work. My goal is not to make money; My goal is for you two to have the Christian wedding you have always wanted. I want this to be a service, not a job or gig.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The number one step beyond making your selection from here on Thumbtack is to send me an email in order for me to send you back some forms for you both to fill out and return to me as soon as you can so that your chosen date and time are "locked-in". Upon receipt of your forms, we will find a time to chat over the phone, via Skype or get together to review the forms, get to know each other and prepare for your very special day. BUT!!! It all starts by getting and returning the forms as soon as possible!!! If someone else gets their forms in before you (even if we have talked), there may be little I can do but give them the day/date. With Thumbtack, we, the providers of the services pay Thumbtack immediately for the opportunity to have you as someone we serve. Even if we do not do the ceremony and yet had some kind of communication between the two of us, we, the vendors must pay Thumbtack money. It is unfortunate for everyone to pay out for this opportunity to serve and yet never actually get to do what we paid for. I recognize this is a very important decision and by all means want God's best for you both, but be aware of the critical nature of time in even the beginning stages. Also, if you thought I was the one for you, but something or someone changed your mind, I have no problem in you wanting to make that change. Do me the favor and let me know you have decided to use someone else as soon as you can so I can make way for other couples to have my services. Beyond all that, there is no "typical process" because no two situations are "typical". Personalized, individual and appropriate are the only standards consistently used. While the wedding ceremony is serious business, I am all for making it be the joyful occasion it is meant to be - but not some kind of "side-show" or comedic act. Those forms I get you to fill out, along with speaking with you both help me help you by providing exactly what you want (and do not want). I have to say it again - Your specific wedding day, date and time are "locked-in" only after you return these forms to me and I have acknowledged their receipt. I have sample vows and a very large list of ideas you could incorporate into your ceremony - without additional costs (except for materials if and as needed). In short, I want to serve you in any and every way possible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been in Christian ministry (service) since 1975. Reverend/Pastor/Hospital & Hospice Chaplain/Biblical Counselor & Theologian/Overseas Missionary/Author. NOT an online ordination with a non-existent "church" or some organization or becoming an officiant because of a one-time good experience with family members and decided to make money from this kind of work. Married in 1990. Completing a ThD (Doctors of Biblical Theology & Counseling) 50+years experience as a human being. God and His people are the testimonies that speak clearly of doing in the right manner of this work and service. Any other external platitudes would not be necessary.
