Patty Burgess was the most amazing, magical, warm, wonderful, and professional officiant my husband and I could have hoped for. We planned our Georgia wedding from New Mexico, and were concerned about finding a suitable officiant with whom we felt a genuine connection, as well as one we could afford! Through a Google search, we found Thumbtack, and Patty popped up as one of the officiants available for our date and location. What made Patty stand out right away was the rapidity of her response to our inquiries, as well as the sincerity and detailed nature of her responses. You felt like she was giving you all the time in the world, even before you had hired her or paid her a cent. Patty answered many questions via email, and was glad to have a lengthy conversation with my fiance and I by phone, in which she explained her approach to working with a couple to craft a unique ceremony that truly reflects their story and personalities. We came away from that conversation convinced that Patty was the one for us. She then sent us a treasure trove of sample components for us to consider and pull from as we crafted our ceremony. When we decided to involve friends in a dramatic performance as one of our "readings", and to have other friends play a song in place of a reading, Patty was 100% supportive. Two things that made her stand out even before our wedding day were, 1) She sent an extensive email with the contact info for the courthouse in the county where our wedding would be held, with instructions on how to obtain a marriage license, and details of how she would handle filing it for us; and 2) Patty insisted on meeting with us in person once prior to our wedding, at no additional charge, so that we could forge a personal connection that would be reflected throughout our eye contact and energy together during the ceremony. She was so warm and relaxed during our pre-wedding day meeting, and you could just tell that she genuinely loves not only officiating, but getting to know her couples and helping them pull of a totally unique ceremony on their big day. As for the wedding day itself, Patty had a wonderfully soulful, grounded, authoritative presence (like you would want from an ordained minister). She had a wonderfully articulate and easily audible speaking voice with a beautiful Virginia accent. And, she rolled like a champ with the curve balls, even folding them into the ceremony, like when our friend's 2-year-old son began to cry just as our friend walked forward to do a reading. Our friend ended up holding her son throughout the reading. While our friend sorted this out, with her son wailing, Patty said with a smile, "Well, you know, it's not a proper Southern wedding unless there's at least one crying child!" This got the whole crowd "on board", and everyone had a good laugh and showed their support for the mother of the crying child, and it actually made the reading more endearing. Patty remained calm and affirmative throughout this hiccup, and that made me respect her even more. You can tell that after 800+ weddings, she is simply unflappable. Finally, Patty had some time after our ceremony and was able to join us for the reception. My family and friends had so much fun talking to her and getting to know her. She felt like part of the family! Bottom line: Patty has loads of experience and just kind of thinks of everything in advance, and does everything she can to take worry and stress off of the bride and groom's plate, so that all the bride and groom have to do is show up, follow her cue, and look in her book when it's time to do vows, since she has everything there for you. She even gave us a printed, ribbon-tied copy of our ceremony as a keepsake right out of her book after the ceremony! And she filed our marriage license for us after signing it. She is a delight, and so incredibly good at what she does. I found her price to be an astonishing bargain, and could not more highly recommend her! Thank you, Patty, for making our ceremony so wonderful, memorable, and effortless!

Patricia spent a couple of hours with me explaining everything about the ceremony choices to me. I was so lost at the beginning but she helped me choose personalized readings to create the perfect ceremony. The minister that actually officiated the ceremony was Brian and he was amazing. He made the nervous groom feel comfortable and even cracked a few little jokes to help ease the anxiety for both me and my husband. He was personable and professional. I was extremely happy with both Patricia and Brian. Our ceremony was perfect and fit well with our personalities. I received so many compliments about the ceremony from our guests during the reception. I would highly recommend them to any bride and groom!

There are no words to describe the outstanding, phenomenal job Randy did at our wedding. EVERYONE wants to know who our fabulous minister was!! He rarely looked at his notes, including those special sections we wrote ourselves. His voice was clean, crisp, kind and caring. It felt as though he had known us personally for years! Truly, he did the very best job of any minister I've heard at any wedding anywhere! I'd almost get married again just to have him do the ceremony. Almost, that is!! Thanks so much, Randy!!

Randy was perfect for our wedding on 6/24/16! He responded quickly via Thumbtack, and was extremely nice throughout the entire process. He was open to meeting around our schedules, very easy to talk to, and made sure the ceremony was being performed how we wanted it. He even made a last minute appearance for our wedding rehearsal after a lack of response on our end (oops!) without any hesitation! The ceremony went extremely smooth, and sounded great! Highly recommended for the Atlanta area!

Randy was a great officiant at our wedding! He arrived on time, was very professional, and did an excellent job officiating the ceremony. His nonreligious ceremony is beautiful; I don't think we changed anything other than adding our own little unity ceremony! Thanks, Randy!

Fred Forsh (Minister, Pastor, Wedding Officiant), married my Wife and I on November 22, 2014, and was a joy to work with. Mr. Forsh was easy to communicated to about scheduling and planning issues that arose during the beginning stages of the how, what, and when process. Mr. Forsh is a soft-spoken professional who was on time and prepared for the event. I would highly recommend using Mr. Forsh as your Wedding Officiant, you will not be disappointed, we weren’t.

Rev Forsh was great. He quickly contacted me and we had a few conversations about what I wanted for my wedding. He was professional, prompt and followed my desires to a tee. He was pleasant and has a wonderful sense of humor. He's an excellent choice for your wedding or event. He saved the day for us after our original minister pulled out weeks prior to the event. Thank you so much for your service. We appreciate you. God bless!

We were married on 01/09/2015. Minister Forsh was great to work with. Our ceremony was small and very simple. He even took time to take some snapshots for us. We really appreciate him officiating our wedding. We will never forget our special day.

Victor, Thank you for a beautiful commitment ceremony! Ken and I did not really know what to expect from a commitment ceremony but your friendly, welcoming and professional demeanor made us feel at ease about things right from our first meeting with you. You helped us personalize our ceremony and all your suggestions were excellent! You were able to really make this day special for us by giving our ceremony the dignity and respect it deserves while simultaneously keeping it light and joyful. The ceremony got nothing but compliments from our friends and family. Our German family members were particularly excited that you cited a prayer in the German language. We really appreciate it - we know that German is impossible :-D (and it must have required a lot of practice on your part)! Thank you for all you did for us! You made our day a day we will never forget! Julia and Ken

Victor was an absolute gem for our wedding! From my first meeting with him, I felt so at ease with that part of the wedding planning process. He was very thorough in explaining all of the parts of the ceremony to me, and I was able to exactly pick and choose which parts we wanted and didn't want. He was always very responsive to my emails and was a joy and entertaining during the ceremony while remaining totally professional. He flowed easily between English and Spanish as we wanted. Highly recommended!

I sought out the services of Minister Wright on thumbnail because I was getting married in two weeks and the Reverend that was to perform the ceremony "forgot" that he had a prior commitment. Not only was Minister Wright accommodating on such short notice but he was very professional and arrived on time. I really liked that we were able to customize our ceremony. I was not able to utilize any other services offered but would definitely recommend Minister Wright and Wright Now Weddings!

Kathy is an extraordinary speaker in her own right. She is well-versed and very knowledgeable of her subject matter. She captivates an audience as well as draws in her target audience. In addition, her officiant services are unsurpassed. She is very invested in the couples she services and has a funny wit about her to diffuse awkward moments. I highly recommend her for either of these services. You cannot go wrong.

Mrs. Kathy was a blessing that will always be a part of the many reasons I say God is good. She was very personal, straight to the point, and put her special touch on our small gathering, without overdoing it. We are forever grateful for her being so understanding and such a great choice at an especially short notice. I would definitely refer her to other friends that may need an officiant.

I am a pastoral counselor myself who has been rather isolated in my ministry. I needed another person to hear my personal struggle with a client and a place to process the impact it was having on me personally. Greg was appropriately supportive, lifted up things I needed to consider and brought the Word to my experience. What ministered to me most was his intercessory prayer on my behalf. While I often pray for and with others in my work seldom do I hear prayers ascending on my behalf.

Besides opening my heart and let out all my frustrations for the first time, Mr. Griffin was very responsive and professional, and he provided me with tools that have been of great help and made me look at my marriage from a different perspective. I thought divorce was my only option, but I am glad I had the courage to seek help from GGCC, LLC.

This was my first ever Christian counseling and I was going through a very tough moral crisis. Greg truly helped me pull through one of the toughest periods of my life. He was patient, offered suggestions and guidance but he helped me see my own solutions. I credit those sessions with Greg as a turning point in my life.

We used TopHat Affairs to perform our wedding ceremony in Atlanta. We knew "kind of" the type of ceremony that we wanted, but not what to actually put in the ceremony- this is where Jason really saved us. He met with us before the ceremony and spent a couple of hours helping us craft a ceremony that reflected our personal beliefs and values. During the wedding he was engaging and witty- which was important to too- we wanted a serious that was both serious but also contained a little levity too. It was the perfect blend of both. It's a great feeling for people to come up to you afterwards and mention that they really enjoyed the officiant. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone wanting to get married. His prices were competitive (not on the high end) but right in the middle (and yes we did comparison shop). We did opt to have him come to the rehearsal- just to make sure we all were comfortable with the flow of the ceremony. All in all he was fantastic.

Working with Jason Schwartz was an absolute pleasure. From our first meeting, I knew immediately that my wedding ceremony would flow seamlessly. Jason displayed a level of diligence and preparedness that set him apart from the rest in the wedding industry. His patience and professionalism guided us through the planning process, the rehearsal, and culminated in a beautifully orchestrated wedding ceremony. Jason's careful planning and attention to detail created the happiest day of my life, and I cannot possibly thank him enough.

I have had the privilege on multiple occasions to have been counseled by Minister Tyfani Carrington...the experience of it all was most pleasant . Minister Carrington shows great intrest and concern for her clients. Actually she makes you feel more than just a folder with your name on it...there is a warmth and compassion that reels you in so that you are more than just comfortable with sharing what ever you need to discuss with Minister Tyfani Carrington...that Is what has been missing from the client, counselor relationship...that is the "Connection" Thank you Minister Carrington for connecting to My situation right where I was & bringing me to a Closer understanding of my situation.

Also, most traveling/after hour notaries charge $35 trip charge and $10.00 per page, her price was a flat $5.00 per page, and no trip charge. Thank you again Tyfani for such a quick response and meeting time! I will be calling you again in the future! -Ashley

Apostle Oshay Smith has been a great marriage counselor to myself and husband. At the time Me and my husband were having some hard times in our marriage, I was ready for a divorce, but the Lord led me to talk to Apostle Oshay first before doing anything else.. I briefed him on what we were going through, trust issues, infidelity, disappointments, and so on. He set up an appointment with my husband and he begin to minister and Council him first. My husband began seeing Apostle Oshay every Wednesday by himself from March 2017 until July 2017. Apostle Oshay then started counseling the both of us together in July of this year.. During that time of my husband one on one time with Apostle, I began to see a spiritual and a natural change in him. My love begin to come back for my husband for the first time in about eight months.. We still have a long road ahead of us but I can truly say now me and my husband are (1) standing strong together and we are both fighting for our marriage together.. and we owe it all to God first and also Apostle Oshay..

My husband and I completed premarital counseling with Communion Fellowship Ministries International in preparation for the life long commitment to one another. From video calls, to emails, to face to face meetings the team at CFMI surpassed all of our expectations with their prompt responses, professional counseling and gracefilled knowledge of The Word. My husband and I had the opportunity that many other couples unfortunately miss out on; and that is being fully prepared and equipped for marriage prior to saying "I do," we both learned so much about the intentions of marriage, the value we individually bring and how vital it is for The Holy Spirit to be at the center of all we do. I would 100% recommend CFMI to anyone, as we have been back with them for their Ministers in Training course and hope to complete some biblical parenting classes in the future!

I met Minister Scott a few years ago as a member of Antioch Baptist Church North in Atlanta, Georgia. I have found Min. Scott to be a very dedicated church leader who has a passion for helping young people, especially college students. In addition to his full-time professional obligations as a teacher and his family obligations to his wife and children, Min. Scott finds time to lead the Christians in College ministry to help nurture young Christians at a time in their lives when their faith is often tested by the challenges and temptations of college life. Although I have never been married, I am confident that Min. Scott would prove to be an excellent wedding officiant for any couple seeking a minister who is called to nurture people at important junctures in their lives -- whether it's the beginning of one's adult life as a college student or at the beginning of one's life as a married person. If I am ever so blessed to get married one day, I would not hesitate to ask Min. Scott to officiate our wedding ceremony.

Minister Scott is a great man. He was very very patient with me when communication was bad on my end. He was so professional and had such a calm demeanor. My wedding ceremony stated an hour late and he was still very patient with us all. He even stuck around to take pictures with my husband and I. Minister Scott was concerned with making sure that our ceremony went exactly how we wanted it to go. He is very knowledgeable in ministry and he wasn't pushy about anything. He allowed the ceremony to go off without a hitch. I would love to work with him again.
