Pastor Chris was the officiant for our wedding. He did a great job! We didn’t meet him until our wedding day but we had an initial zoom meeting with him where he got to know a little about us. On our wedding day he showed up early, was present in the moment, and made our ceremony feel very personalized. I definitely recommend him for your special day!

Details: Wedding • Christian • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will be needed at the rehearsal

If you think hiring an official online is not going to be a personal experience, think again. Pastor Thompson was amazing to work with! He made the entire process so easy, right from the very beginning. From the time we decided on our wedding date / time, and secured him, all the way to the day of our wedding, Pastor Thompson was easy and prompt to communicate with. He sent forms, where he gave us an opportunity to tell him about us (the bride and groom). On the day of our wedding, he spoke as if he had known us for years. Even our friends and family, commented to us what a nice personality he has, and how good he made the ceremony for us. I highly recommend Pastor Thompson!

Details: Wedding • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Pastor Chris is undeniably the most genuine human being! I’m so glad I reached out to him and he was really quick to respond. My fiancé and I were able to get married within the same day and it was a beautiful and intimate ceremony! Thank you Pastor Chris! It was a blessing to meet you and have you officiate our wedding!

Pastor Thompson officiated our wedding this past Monday. My husband and I eloped in the mountains and Pastor Thompson came all the way out there to perform our ceremony at almost last minute notice. His heart is genuine and you can tell he loves what he is doing. God was very present in our ceremony. His son did an amazing job taking photos for us too. We couldn't ask for a better person to officiate. We highly recommend him!

Pastor Chris made things go smoothly from the beginning. Never felt any pressure to choose his services or anything, it just felt right from the start. It was def meant to be to have Chris officiant our small wedding elopement ceremony for us. He got to know us in just a few short days and made our ceremony perfectly fit geared towards us and surpassed all our needs and wants. Thank you again Chris! It was a perfect November morning wedding we will remember for a lifetime.
