About

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!

About

I am a friendly and caring nondenominational wedding officiant with an understanding of how important your wedding day is to you.

This is your day, and I'm here to serve you and your fiance(e)! I respect all traditions and am happy to work with you to express YOUR values in your ceremony, not my own agenda. I am happy to provide services for renewal of vows, funerals, baby blessings, and any life celebration or ritual. To officiate at a wedding in the State of Georgia, a person must be either a judge, justice of the peace or an ordained minister, rabbi, priest, or other religious leader. I am an ordained minister in the Harmony Church (in Colorado) and in the Universal Life Church.

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!

About

As we journey through this life, each of us will encounter moments which will forever be imprinted upon our minds and hearts. I embrace the opportunity to come alongside of you during these times as you discover ways to make these moments special for you, your family and friends. Wedding vows and celebrations are created with you in mind. Other life events are also offered, from child dedications and vow renewals to anniversary celebrations, retreats, and memorial services. Whatever the life moment, I welcome the opportunity to listen to your story and to see the moment unfold to be treasured for a lifetime. I am a skilled, compassionate ecumenical minister who is able to offer both directed counseling as well as life coaching. I am creative and flexible as you plan your event. From intimate home weddings to surf-side affairs and family-inclusive ceremonies, you will discover a wealth of options available to you. I am a trained chaplain and ordained minister with two decades of experience working with families, locally and cross culturally. My couples and families come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. I welcome each, I hope equally.. . and they have taught me much through the years. The venues I officiate at vary from the informal, intimate home settings, to venues in the mountains, barns, riverboats, seaside, small country churches, to conference centers and cathedrals and all are beautiful and celebrate the love these two have discovered in one another. And I enjoy including children, young and older, in family vow celebrations. Renewal of Vows or the "wedding we didn't have" are just as valued and beautiful. I truly hope my listening to stories and sharing bits of them in the service make all the difference in the world to the ones I serve alongside and that they will bring a smile to the faces of those couples, families and friends in the years ahead as they recall that special day!

We thought finding a person to marry us would be an easy task, but it turned out to be more difficult than we had originally expected. That was until we found Levant Sanders! Levant agreed to meet with us personally and we ended up meeting him at a nearby Chili's. We had expressed to Levant that we hadn't really looked into this process and with only a few weeks until our wedding, we were in frantic mode putting the final touches together for our big day. When we met with Levant, we could tell by his attitude and professionalism that he was the guy that would be marrying us! He is a very enthusiastic, personable individual and genuinely loves the process of marrying people. He brought along some sample vows and ceremony scripts for us to look at which really eased our worries.

My new husband & I were married on December 23, 2014 in an intimate ceremony & reception held in a cabin beside a crackling fire & a Christmas tree that was decorated by our now mutual grandchildren.Our nuptuals were officiated by Rev. Dennis Turner who lawfully joined us in holy matrimony that was witnessed before God in his presence & the presence of our family members. Rev Dennis Turner was very easy to work with. He was very compassionate & understanding when I was told by my physicians just 10 days before our plans to travel from Tennessee to Georgia & 12 days from our wedding date that I had a very serious complication from a recent surgical procedure & may not be able to travel. They told me that I would have to either be hospitalized or I could remain at home if I agreed to take specific medicationS that would have to be made by the physician & administered every 30 minutes 24/7 & I had to be drivem the 1 1\2 hour dribe to teport eport to their office to be examined & evaluated every morning at 6:45 A.M prepped & ready to go to surgery if it was necessary. I was frantic & only got through it with prayers & my husband to be who stayed awake data on end with little to no sleep to give me my medications & see me though this tough time. I had already spoken to Dennis about officiating our wedding & was about to request some sample Christian C ceremonies when all of this happened & I didn'r correspond with him again for an entire week. As a matter of fact it was only 3 days before the set date before I contacted him again. He seemed to be more concerned for my health at the moment than he did with getting the officiating job. He was so easy to deal with. I told him that I wanted a teaditional christian ceremony using our own vows & he emailed me a sample copy of his traditional Christian ceremony Y & it was just perfect & exactly what I wanted. It was so good that I didn't want to change or take away one single word from it. He did allow is to recite the traditional vows as well as add our own personal vows as well as add a unity candle to the ceremony. He did a great job & had a very reasonable price. I could tell that he was a man that loved the Lord & that he seemed to actually enjoy officiating our union. He was also very accommodating & friendly when he was interacting with our family members. He even saw to it that he granted a special request prior to tje ceremony from my 8 year old grandson to sing us a special song. After he announced us as husband & wife he announced that he had an obligation to announce an agreement that he had made with my grandson to allow him to have a moment to sing a special song for us. I am hear to tell you that it was honestly the most wonderful heartfelt rendition of Jingle Bells that we had ever heard I absolutely loved it. Thanks again for being so accommodating. I highly recommend Rev Dennis Turner to officiate your upcoming wedding in the georgia area. If you want a truelly traditional Christian ceremony, then he's your man for the job.
