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!
Rich was very professional throughout the entire process. We were admittedly apprehensive about booking a minister through this service, yet Rick was beyond impressive. He put on a beautiful ceremony and made us a better couple during our counseling session. I definitely recommend Rick's services.
Victor couldn't have been sweeter. He made sure we were happy with every detail of the ceremony. I couldn't be more satisfied with him as our minister. 5 stars all across the board.
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 werent.
Patient , brilliant young man ! His energy is pleasant & amazing ! Was a blessing having you Minister Wright ! May God's blessing shower you always !
Very kind man! Very Profesional he was prompt and on time. Glad he was our minister.
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.
Reverend Cahaley presented a very nice ceremony. We were very pleased with her wonderful manner. She made our small family wedding go smoothly. She was just what we were looking for in a minister. Truly a blessing!
Minister Carrington's services have proven to be a HUGE blessing to my household. We have benefited from her genuine concern and thought provoking solutions to our every day needs! Quite frankly she has proven the fact that prayer and works make all the difference as she puts that to action consistently.
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!
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.
Thank you for the wonderful job you did at my daughter's wedding. It was the most loving , peaceful, and enjoyable wedding I have every attended. I would recommend you to anyone looking for a minister. Thank you Laurie
My experience with the Rev. Dargenae Patterson was overall very positive. Rev. Patterson served as the minister at my wedding. First, she was on time and exhibited herself in a very professional manner. Her presentation of our ceremony was done with such care and charm which made the environment a pleasure to be a part of. She definitely came prepared. I would definitely recommend Rev. Patterson to perform any job at hand.
