Pastor Bob did a great job officiating our ceremony. We met briefly beforehand to discuss the particulars. On the wedding day he showed up on time and provided a lovely ceremony. Highly recommended!Sep 6, 2016Verified
I truly wish there were more stars to give because of the WONDERFUL job he did. He made sure our wedding started on time, was very professional, and even indulged us in taking an I DO Selfie. He continues to keep in touch and gives us words of encouragement and invites us to activities sponsored through his church. I couldn't have asked for a better Officiant!!!Jul 28, 2015Verified
The experience with Pastor Thibodeau, was outstanding he was very efficient. He met my husband and I and went through all the steps with us in detail, he answered all of our questions and concerns. I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone to officiate their wedding.Mar 19, 2015Verified
We cannot say enough good things about Pastor Bob. We struggled with who to hire as an officiant for our wedding. We wanted a non-denominational Christian wedding but aren’t members of any local churches. I was leery of hiring someone we didn’t know from the internet but we are so glad we did! Pastor Bob was not only professional but also very personable. He responded to us quickly anytime we contacted him and was not only punctual, but early for everything from our pre-wedding meeting to the rehearsal and ceremony itself. The ceremony was even better than we had imagined as he has his own way of making it special for not just the couple getting married, but the wedding party and guests as well. My mother even commented after the ceremony that it was the nicest wedding she had ever attended. He was truly exceptional and we feel so blessed that he was part of our special day.Mar 13, 2019VerifiedWedding Ceremonies since 1998's reply
Thank you, Nicole! You both were such a blessing to work with!
I can't begin to express how much of a blessing it was to find Pastor Bob and how truly grateful I am that he performed my wedding! He answered my initial inquiry very quickly, and was extremely thorough in his response. As my now-hubby and I wanted to marry in just a few days, Pastor Bob made sure to let me know the time frame in which we needed to get our marriage license, considering the 48-hour waiting period. We'd actually gotten our license months before, but it was so wonderful how even in that initial communication, Pastor Bob showed his thoughtfulness in wanting to ensure that we had all of our bases covered. What a blessing he is! He even lowered his fee for us because his heart is not to make money - his heart is to serve God by joining couples in holy matrimony. Once hired, we spoke on the phone and he was so pleasant and kind as we went over all of the logistics of the ceremony. He was very easy to talk to and I hung up with my mind at ease that all would go well the day of. And surely, it did! He arrived at exactly the agreed upon time and even waited patiently while I took a few extra minutes to finish prepping. He's a wonderful conversationalist and my now-husband and sister enjoyed speaking with him for those few extra minutes before the ceremony began. He performed the ceremony exquisitely! His professionalism is stellar and his warm nature just makes you feel so at ease. Pastor Bob took pictures with us after the ceremony and wished us the very best. Pastor Bob is a blessing and true servant of God. I wish him and his ministry (Freedom Through Faith Ministries) nothing but continued success and would HIGHLY recommend him as an officiant to any couple seeking to get married. Thank you again Pastor Bob and God bless you!!May 10, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?1. Traditional wedding service (or the extended - Episcopalian service) - to include attending the wedding rehearsal and our face to face coffee meeting (30 minutes) is $300. 2. If I am not needed at a wedding rehearsal (Traditional and Episcopalian Ceremonies) - I give a $100 discount. The amount of the fee would then be $200. 3. If you are looking for a "no frills" simple ceremony (i.e. Civil Ceremony) - which lasts about 5 minutes - then my fee is $175 (and still includes the face to face coffee meeting). 4. From time to time, I do offer additional discounts. So check back or ask!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Once selected to be the wedding officiant, I will communicate with the person through Thumbtack email. Normally, about 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding, we will schedule a face to face coffee meeting. This allows me to ask pertinent questions of the couple so I can make sure the ceremony is everything the couple is looking for. It is also a chance for them to ask me any questions as well.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I read almost 1 book per month that deals with ministry related topics. I am an avid reader. I attend a ministers conference in Texas every October to maintain my credentials.
