"Keep It Simple" Weddings

(3 reviews)

The decision to start a marriage service business came to Perry Russell after attending a wedding officiated by a friend. Sharing that special moment with a couple giving vows to each other inspired Perry and the rest was history. Despite the hurdles at the start like licenses, advertising and others, Perry was motivated.

My clients normally are thirty years old or younger some older. My clients normally do not want a church wedding.My clients are looking for an inexpensive way of saying 'I do', and my marriages service "Keep It Simple" provides that.

Although just starting in 2013, Perry has 23 weddings in his track record. Being married for 40 years, he knows what to share to young couples about married life. Among his projects, his favorite was his first wedding. It was a beach wedding and it was special for both Perry and the client.

I firmly believe in keeping the customer satisfied. I offer inexpensive, non-denominational or Christian Wedding Services, also [with their] choice of location free complimentary photos of their Wedding. I try make it all about them.

Keep your weddings simple yet still memorable by booking with Perry Russell.

    Howard Pendley, Ph.D.

    (98 reviews)

    Dr. Howard was a joy to have as our wedding officiant. He took time out of his busy schedule to meet us weeks prior to our ceremony, which demonstrated his commitment to the service and significance of the occasion. Dr. Howard is as sincere, kind, and friendly as he is educated, experienced, and knowledgeable. Standing before him at our wedding ceremony it felt almost as though he had been our minister for a long time. In short, I couldn't imagine having any other clergyman make our wedding vows as memorable.

    Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements

    (9 reviews)

    Tracy was a great wedding officiant. She was easy to contact and talk about ideas before we hired her, which made the decision making process very easy. Once we decided to use Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements, she was available to meet in person so we could talk about our wedding ceremony together. Tracy gave us lots of ideas that helped us figure out the direction of our ceremony. She quickly adapted parts of the ceremony to make it more personal and special while still keeping our values and the type of ceremony that we wanted. I also really love the type of research and creativity that she puts into her ceremonies. She really thinks about the couple that she is going to marry, their values, their personalities and makes it unique and meaningful. She surprised us by finding a poem to include at the end of our ceremony that was very unique to our relationship. This shows me that she really puts a lot of thought and research into all her ceremonies and makes sure they are personalized. Tracy was the perfect officiant for us. The day of the ceremony she was incredibly organized, made me feel at ease, brought up important things to do or say that I probably wouldn't have thought about, and made sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements!! I also recommend using her Vow Writing Guide. We wrote our own vows and her guide helped me to easily write meaningful vows.

He helped us craft a ceremony that uniquely reflected our faith, values, and hopes for the future. He kept an eye on the details and was flexible and quick to adapt. From things like turning down the microphone when the wind was blowing too hard to wearing the yellow tie I selected for him, he rolled with the punches. We are so thankful for Rev.

  2. #2 Weddings By Bill Gillespie

    (21 reviews)

    Mariah A.

    Bill was wonderful! I had a difficult time finding an officiant that would provide the type of services that we needed - officiant services that were not extremely religious but still mentioned some of our religious views. Bill did it all for us and for a really great price (he offers a military discount for active duty members)! He was extremely prompt in getting back to us and answering all of our questions. He sent us several layouts for the ceremony script and we picked and chose parts from each of them. Bill allowed/helped us to create our ideal ceremony and it couldn't have gone smoother! We rehearsed the day prior to the wedding and he made us feel so relaxed and helped everyone get into their correct places so that we could do several run-throughs of how the ceremony would actually flow. I would 100% recommend Bill Gillespie to anyone and everyone looking for an officiant. He is so respectful and truly just wants you to have a wonderful and seamless wedding. I was in no way paid or pressured into writing this review! He really is just that great! Discretion: I have also personally reviewed Bill on another website, therefore the review is word for word the same. If you see the other one, just know it was also me!
