Wedding Officiant

I would highly recommend Rev.Steve. He was very polite and a joy to be around. He was on time and very professional. I don’t think my husband and I could have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. Thank you so much Rev.Steve for such a great service.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Nothing complicated about my pricing. I price depending on size and type of wedding (cheaper for JP Courthouse type/ Elopement VS Large Formal) and distance I have to travel (cheaper for shorter)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    If selected, I'd send you a questionnaire to learn more about you guys - We would also meet closer to your Big Day to go over the questionnaire, the ceremony, and just to say "hi!"

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Fully licensed and traditionally ordained minister with the National Association of Christian Ministers (NACM) located in Greenville, South Carolina. Bachelors degree in Theology/Bible, Christian Psychology, and Teacher Education (residential & accredited). 30+ years public speaking/ conducting small, medium, large public groups
