Introduction: With over 1,100 ceremonies performed, you not only get professionalism, you get experience that will help make your day extra special and memorable. I could talk about me all day because I like me....but I invite you to read 3-4 reviews and let happy couples tell you what you get with this awesome dude. LOL I now offer REMOTE SERVICES where we can perform your marriage ceremony via Facetime, Skype or Zoom (or something similar). This new digital age has opened up brand new possibilities when time and distance are a concern. Two items of business in closing....the fee listed does NOT include travel and will likely change. I just want you to know that upfront so I don't seem like a used car salesman. LOL Honesty is very important to me. Secondly, I can and will attend rehearsal if you must have me there but I will gladly show you how to have a great rehearsal without me and save that extra money for your honeymoon :) Call me today between 9am and midnight at the number listed and let's make your day the BEST DAY EVER.

Wedding Officiant

From the start pastor Hamp was very responsive. He was so reassuring from the start. On my wedding day he came in and help loosen up the tension caused by nerves. He was everything we needed in an officiant. The review wanted us to only pick three items to describe his work but I can’t pick only three he was wonderful.

Thank you Adrianna :) I think you're the first bride to send her review on her honeymoon LOL They must have been serving you RedBull or some other energy drink instead of Sparkling Grape Juice. :) I truly enjoyed myself and was honored to serve you and Kevin. Let's renew these in about 50 years. :) (gotta beat your parent's record) LOL Take care and give each other a big hug for me. Blessings to you and your home for years to come. <3

Working with Reverend Hamp from start to finish was wonderful. His response was less than five minutes. He showed up on time, and patiently waited for our guest. He came into our home and helped us with small task. We really appreciate being able to meet him. I thank him for making our wedding a beautiful day.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My Average Fee varies depending on when your ceremony is and what city it will be held in. Quotes provided include PERFORMING the CEREMONY, all TRAVEL related expenses, assistance in Writing Your VOWS, and PROCESSING your MARRIAGE LICENSE following the ceremony. If you receive a quote that is lower, please allow me the opportunity to meet or beat it. I am very flexible and considerate. I will do whatever it takes to earn the honor to serve you on your special day. Please ask about special discounts for Active Duty Servicemembers, Veterans, First Responders and Senior Citizens. Deposit/Payments can be made via Zelle, Apple Pay, Cash App, Venmo, Apple Pay or by calling your credit/debit card info in. Cash is acceptable for deposits if we are able to meet in person prior to your ceremony. A receipt for Cash will be provided upon request. If you do not have any of the above cards or apps, we can even accept WalMart to WalMart payments as well as Western Union and MoneyGram payments. Whatever works best and is most convenient for you. Deposits are non-refundable but in certain situations, your deposit can be kept on record for up to 1 year from your original wedding date should circumstances change. Additional services available are (rates vary): 1) Rehearsal 2) Premarital Counseling 3) Day of Coordination Services 4) Master of Ceremonies

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once the couple has posted their deposit, I will work with the couple...usually the bride (because you know who's day it is, right? LOL)...to prepare a detailed script of the ceremony so you don't actually need me to attend rehearsal. I will gladly attend but there is an added fee to do so. We will make this day your best day ever. I will suggest ideas but the couple has the final say so. It's kind of like Burger King...you CAN and WILL "have it your way." LOL

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My Army career instilled unparalleled professionalism enhanced by precise attention to detail. With over 1,100 weddings performed, you need someone that has "been there and done that" and has the experience to help you make your wedding the most wonderful and memorable (in the good sense) event of your lifetime. This attention to detail will benefit you and your fiancé on your special day.
