Pastor Earl officiated our recent wedding. He exceeded our expectations throughout the entire process, from the first meeting to the ceremony planning, and finally, to the ceremony itself. He was very personable, and easy to get along with. We really enjoyed working with him, and are very happy that we choose Pastor Earl to officiate our wedding.Jul 14, 2019VerifiedReverend Smith Wedding Officiant's reply
Stephanie & PJ, you two were a delight to work with. You were highly organized and knew exactly what you wanted in your wedding ceremony. Those two things, especially, helped me enjoy planning your wedding ceremony. Thank you for inviting me to be part of your special day! If I can do anything for the two of you in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out! pastor earl
Rev. Earl Smith was such an amazing officiant. He was outgoing and down to earth. He was informative and professional. We had a offbeat bride wedding. My wedding was a rockabilly themed wedding. I found some vows on offbeat bride and wanted to use Dr. Seuss wedding vows. He was never judgmental or wanted to change my ideas. I wanted something fun and light hearted. Everything I wanted was perfect! I would recommend Rev. Earl Smith in a heartbeat!Jun 20, 2017Verified
So incredibly amazing. Very professional with a bit of humor mixed in when appropriate. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a wedding officiant.May 7, 2017Verified
Pastor Earl was the best wedding officiant we could have dreamed of. Since finding him on Thumbtack, we have starting attending the church he preaches at, attended marriage counseling and become friends with him. He will work with you to accomplish a perfect ceremony. You want this guy!!Jun 26, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?When I submit a quote to a potential customer it includes a standard agreement that contains my pricing breakdown.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically meet two times with couples. The first gives us an opportunity to see if we each believe we can work together to create a great wedding day for the interested couple. We also take some time to start talking about their desires for their ceremony. As we wrap up our first meeting, I leave the couple with a Ceremony Planning Guide that will help them get all of their thoughts and plans for their ceremony in writing. I then use that guide to write their customized ceremony. When we meet for the second time (4-6 weeks before their wedding), we go over the ceremony I have written for them, making any changes they prefer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied pastoral ministry at Bethel College in Mishawaka, IN and have since earned three graduate degrees in pastoral fields. I have also been performing weddings for over 15 years. I've done backyard weddings, beach weddings, church weddings, vow renewals, and ceremonies in a variety of other settings.
