Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have over 40 years of experience in the ministry of gifted preaching, teaching, counseling, wedding, and funeral officiating. You will not get the typical or traditional, boring service, but professionally upbeat, informative, inspirational, and with a touch of class, humor, soul, and style. Unlike many traditional ministers, couples of alternative lifestyles are welcome; God wants you together, too! Oh and by the way, not that a funeral is as joyful as a wedding, but if you ever need an officiant to help put your loved one to rest, they'll receive a home-going celebration of life that will make heaven proud to bring them home! This is one last comment; there are officiants on here that have 4 stars, reviews, pictures, etc, and I'm sure they provide very good services. Although I've performed more weddings than I can count, with very, very happy couples, I didn't record any of them, nor do I have photos ( I guess I need to get with the times), but that's where I need your help now. I'm a seasoned officiant, but I'm new to Thumbtack. Give me a try; you will not regret it! I can start building those stars and reviews, while providing you with a joyful service you won't soon forget.

We absolutely loved minister Mike! We met with him and his beautiful wife Yolanda just about a week before our wedding and they were just so wonderful. They heard our love story, shared theirs, and made us feel so comfortable & excited to get married. On our wedding day, we had an unexpected thunderstorm, and although I was a little anxious, Minister Mike & Yolanda were extremely positive & still stood under the drizzle to Marry us. He really made our day unforgettable and our guests are still talking about him!

Minister Charles is a great brother; real down to earth. Nothing like I thought he would be, seeing he's an African American preacher and all (great speaker). He gave us a great ceremony nine years ago, and mingled really well at our reception, he's even a great dancer. We had a few beers, laughed a lot; great service, great person: I'd recommend him to anybody getting married. He's "kool". Nothing could have been better.

Thanks Mike, I really appreciate that brother.

"All I can say is outstanding, outstanding, outstanding!!! Pastor Gardner and his wife (she's a doll) met us at Denny's for a pre wedding meeting and his insight was unusually amazing. And the ceremony was different, not the typical stuff, my guest are still talking about, and that was 13 years ago. Pastor, thanks again!"
