We could not have asked for more, Father Tom did an AMAZING job performing our ceremony! He took into consideration our wishes of which traditions we wanted to incorporate into the ceremony. We received many compliments from guest of loving the way her officiated. He was interactive with guests. He also helped my husband feel at ease at the alter, as he was extremely nervous and Father Tom took notice to made him feel comfortable. Our wedding was everything we wanted and so much more! We are so glad we had the honor of having Father Tom marry us! :)

Father Tom is the best wedding Catholic priest/ officiant I’ve seen. He made the bridal party and guests feel like they were really part of the ceremony, kept it light and fun. Also incorporated a Greek Orthodox element as requested with the crowning of bride and groom. Everyone loved the ceremony. I wish we had more events coming up so he could participate again. Also did a wonderful job organizing the rehearsal.

Details: Wedding • Catholic • 21 - 50 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Can’t recommend Father Tom more!!! He’s the best at Officiating. We wanted an outdoor wedding with catholic traditions included. He was more than accommodating to anything we wanted. He made our ceremony so special as well as treating us like friends through the whole process. Friends and family still talk eight years later about how our wedding ceremony was the most emotional, funny, and touching when they have ever been to! Our wedding would not be nearly as memorable and special without father Tom. If you want a one of a kind wedding with an officiant who is flexible, kind, and funny, this is your guy! Thank you so much, Tom, for making our wedding day the best experience for everyone involved.
