We absolutely LOVED Rev. Wells! He did a great job and we had so many compliments about our wedding ceremony and him! He sent us his ceremony script before hand and let me custom write it to what I was wanting. He made the wedding ceremony so personal and our family and wedding guests all enjoyed speaking with him at the reception! He is the nicest and sweetest man! I would recommend Rev Wells to anyone who needs a wedding officiant!

Jeff performed our wedding ceremony. He did an excellent job of listening to what we wanted and incorporating that in the ceremony. He added his own thoughts that fit well with what we wanted the ceremony to be about. Highly recommended!

For our wedding, my husband and wanted a ceremony that was personal to our relationship, our family, and our shared interests as a couple. We’d known Clark for several years, and knew he had experience officiating weddings, and asked him to officiate ours. Over the next couple months we met with and emailed back and forth with Clark several times to hash out the details of what ended up being an extremely unique, personal, and beautiful ceremony. Neither my husband nor I knew very much about wedding ceremonies, or what would be good things to include in them, and in this point Clark was an excellent resource for us. He explained both traditional things that are included in ceremonies (including poems, songs, vows, etc) as well as non-traditional things (we included a great many quotes and references to our own relationship). He did an exceptional job and tailoring and crafting or ceremony, from the songs that played as guest sat down to the vows we read to each other. To this day, my husband and frequently get compliments on how unique, beautiful, and fun our wedding ceremony was, and I owe all of that to the hard work that Clark put into it. He literally crafting each element of our ceremony to our personal taste, and rather geeky relationship. It was filled with quotes, jokes, touching moments, poems, songs, and love. I would 100% recommend Clark to any couple looking for an officiant for the wedding ceremony, he will give you the most tailored and beautiful ceremony that you and your guests will remember for years to come.

Pastor Joe was an amazing person to work with to create the perfect wedding ceremony. He has invested so much of his time and heart into our relationship as well as writing a unique wedding story he shared with our guests. Our relationship as a couple has already grown during our sessions preparing for the wedding. I cannot say enough positive words about him and the process he has developed to make a very special day of each couple he works with. He is amazing as a person and wedding officiant. We both highly recommend him for anyone planning their wedding.

My husband and I could not be more pleased with Kris as our wedding officiant. When I met with her prior to the wedding all I could tell her was “I don’t want a traditional wedding with the same readings you hear at every other wedding, but I don’t know what I want.” She was able to guide us in a direction of selecting readings and a style of ceremony that fit our relationship. Throughout this process Kris brought her professionalism, humor, creativity, and compassion. We were blessed to have her part of our special day.

We were so happy we found Denise when we decided to renew our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary! To begin with, we had lost our original vows and Denise provided us with helpful suggestions from a collection of pre-written vows she has. Between these and adding our own personal thoughts, we had a renewal ceremony that was very meaningful to us. Denise's genuine warmth and kindness guided the entire tone of our renewal vows and she was an integral part of a very special day for us. Thank you, Denise!
