If you're looking for an officiant for your wedding, your search is officially OVER! Rev Brad is INCREDIBLE. Here's the scoop:
My husband and I just got married a couple weeks ago, but we have been working with Rev Brad for the last year or so. We bought a house a couple years ago, and haven't been able to find a church to call home yet. So, for our wedding, I was determined to find someone who was 1. Non denominational (my husband and I are different religions) 2. Not over-the-top religious (we were not planning on getting married in a church) and 3. Could balance love, laughter, and seriousness in our ceremony. So basically we were looking for a needle in a haystack.
I found rev Brad through "the knot" and all the great reviews on him and his "love story". I really wanted something different, so I was intrigued by the love story approach. I watched several videos, and decided to reach out and see if we could meet in person.
Rev Brad was fantastic from the start. He was super flexible, even meeting us at a Panera close to our house while he drove an hour to get to us (pre-pandemic). When my husband and I first met rev Brad we were hesitant since it was the first time we were meeting with a potential officiant, but rev Brad quickly made us feel super comfortable. We got to know each other, talked about our families, and what our vision was for our wedding. Rev Brad was never pushy, and had all his attention focused on us. Toward the end of our meeting, he gave us options, and no pressure to take some time to think and decide. We didn't need to wait, we made the decision then and there to not only have rev Brad officiate our wedding, but to also do pre marital counseling with him. My husband and I have been together (dating) for 12 years.. So it seemed like a good idea to do the counseling and see what it would be like.
We met with Rev Brad a handful of other times both in person and via video call, and each time we felt as if we were the absolute most important thing he could be doing at that moment. He opened our eyes to things about each other, without ever judging us, and truly wanted to support and help us.
He coordinated the rehearsal, and managed my unruly (drunk..) wedding party during it with so much patience and made us all laugh. We were given full edit rights to the ceremony script he developed in partnership with us, but honestly we didn't really change anything.. It's like he's done this before!
On our big day, the ceremony was absolutely perfect. Our guests are STILL giving compliments on how much they loved the ceremony. We couldn't be happier!! I feel like hes part of our family, and we plan to stay in touch with him in the future.See more
