Ray Garrison was a great officiant for our wedding, he has a fun, bubbly personality and he is able to make the crowd laugh when needed. Despite the fact that hurricane hit on the day my wedding was originally supposed to be on and we had to move it to the next day, he was there when we needed him and was very kind. The only thing I would say could be better was that the words of the ceremony needed to be rehearsed a bit more, some of the things were a bit choppier than they should have been, but no one noticed it. We were just so thankful to actually be able to get married and Ray was a great part of that journey. Overall, I was very happy with the service provided by Ray Garrison and I would recommend him to others.

So glad we picked Ray as the officiant for our wedding! He was great with answering any of our questions, and provided suggestions in areas that we were clueless. Communication with him was always greeted kindly and with quick response! We sort of flew by the seat of our pants with our ceremony, and Ray never hesitated to go with the flow. He also has a great sense of humor, and all of our guests had wonderful things to say about him. I would highly recommend Ray Garrison to anyone looking for a wedding officiant! Thank you Ray!

This gentleman is exactly who you want to officiate your wedding!!! He will work with you to make your day perfect!!! I just got married today n had a very unique wedding ceremony as both myself n now lol my husband have been married prior n wanted a more comical side to our wedding tailored to the two of us.. I wrote the ceremony from top to finish and he read and voiced the parts PERECTLY!! We had a bit movie references that he rose to the challange... As an actor and a minister he was perfect for what we wanted!! He reply promptly an any email or contact form from here and he shows up not only on time but early to go over any last min updates or changes or to just let you get a feel of him n he is so funny that he puts nerves at ease. I hear he also does haunted pub crawls so to speak n I love a good ghost story so will be visiting him in the near future to watch him in action.. Will dress to suit and as we had a very casual wedding , still out dressed the groom lol lol... Hubby wore shorts n polo shirt n I in dress, but let me tell you folks if you ever want a themed wedding especially tho who love anything mystical, n wizardy he is the go to guy... Again I requested casual dress down but man he looks like handoff n I totally loved it and he just fit so perfect. And I have seen other reviews and photos so do not let me discourage you as he dresses to the nines if need be... Hoping last marraige lol but if the universe deems it that I remarry ever he will be my first and only call... I give him a rating of ten stars tho they only allow five, and if you are like me n weary on customer reviews thinking ya they just changed names n made them up to seem great n to boost ratings well let me tell you I am the real deal who fell in love with a wizard minister who made my day magical n will def refer him if my friends in future decide to get married... If he responds to you..you no longer need to search any further.. He is the best of the best and again will accommodate all sort of weddings..the sky is the limit... Thank you Rev Jackie..you completely made my day the best I have ever had , n trust me folks this was not my first go around but it was MY BEST!!!!!! Please excuse any miss spelling ect I am a free writer n grammar just goes out the window, hope fully you get this in the context it was ment to convey n Blessed Be!

John was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding! He was attentive to our needs and flexible to adjust his readings to exactly what we wanted and how we wanted the ceremony to flow. We were even able to meet together prior to our big day. He was a joy to work with & we're so glad we had the opportunity to include him on our special day! Would highly recommend!

We contacted Mrs. Hartlove to perform the duties of the wedding officiant and found her to be highly professional, courteous, and helpful. She was very prompt in replying. In addition, she not only gave us several samples for the service, but also helped us to personalize our special day. She was also very helpful in giving us contacts for other services that were needed for our wedding. I would highly recommend Mrs. Hartlove as a wedding officiant!

I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for my wedding!! LeeAnn was responsive, helpful, professional, and did a fantastic job! We did not have to worry one bit about anything pertaining to the ceremony and it went off without a hitch. She provided us with numerous ceremony examples and we were able to mix and match them to create the perfect one for us! Thank you LeeAnn! Love Mr. and Mrs. Fana

Han is a true wedding pro. We were very lost on what we wanted and he helped guide us through tons of options on everything from the vows to readings to unity rituals. On the day of the wedding, his delivery was fantastically amazing and I had tons of guests complimenting me on the ceremony. It was exactly what we wanted. Han took the time to get to know us as a couple and tailored the ceremony to us in such a phenomenal way that people thought we had known him for years. He also took care a lot of the less than pleasant tasks that we didn't even think to think about. Who knew shoulder tappers were all the rage these days? And of course, the British accent didn't hurt any ;)

I cannot say enough great things about Han! He is absolutely wonderful! When my husband and I met with Han, we knew right away he was the officiant for us. He is very professional and made our ceremony very personal to us. If I ever had a question regarding the ceremony, marriage license process or even his opinion on certain readings he was very responsive and honest! We received MANY compliments on our ceremony – the guests adored him as do I! He also kept me calm and laughing the day of the wedding - I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks again, Han!!

Han was absolutely amazing. He officiated our wedding on July 2, 2017. He has the most soothing voice, has a beautiful way with words and exceeded our expectations in every way. If you're considering Han for your wedding (even if it's a religious ceremony, ours was) DO IT!!!! You won't regret it.

Monique Clarke was awesome to work with. She’s very friendly, professional, patient, family oriented and will go out her way to make sure that you have everything included for your ceremony. She kept us all informed of everything and made sure all parties were well aware of what needs to be done and what has been done. She’s very caring of the needs of the bride and groom and is willing to work with anything even if it’s something new. She’s respectful and very welcoming. I️ would recommend her for anyone that’s wanting any kind of wedding ceremony!

Patsy was wonderful. Everything I wanted. I wanted a simple sweet renewal of vows for our 25th Wedding Anniversary that wasn't cheesy or over the top. Patsy reached out to made sure we were getting exactly what we wanted, going over vows, making them personal, confirming where we would meet (which isn't always easy on a beach!) She made the event exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend her.

Pastor Wear's performance was outstanding regarding the wedding ceremony he conducted for our son and daughter-in-law which occurred on May 14, 2016, Pastor Wear was also present at the wedding rehearsal on the day before the wedding and he thoroughly addressed all questions of the wedding party. Pastor Wear listened intently as to what our son and daughter-in-law requested in regard to the ceremony as a whole as well as their wedding vows and he followed-through on those requests. Pastor Wear was easy to work with, he was punctual, professional and courteous. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of his services in and around the Wilmington, North Carolina area.

I have worked with Brad at several weddings and he is always an absolute pleasure to work with. He is friendly, putting everyone at ease as well as being intuitive to the needs of the families involved. His eye for design and charismatic personality makes him a great fit for officiating your wedding. I highly recommend Robert Bradford Wear for your special day.

Rev. Steve is totally amazing!!! Very professional, organized, easy to talk to, and has an awesome personality. He's only a call, text, or email away, and will respond quickly to answer any of your questions. He's there to help you every step of the way to make your perfect day the most memorable day of your life! Offers different ceremony packets or you can customize the vows to add your own personal touches. Very flexible. Conducted pre-marital counseling which I felt was very important to know what to expect from each other to make our marriage stronger. Even offered to mail our documents and have everything waiting for us when we returned from our honeymoon. With so much going on, this was a blessing to have one less thing to worry about. :) I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant...you will not be disappointed. Love him!! AwEsOmE!!!!

My husband and I wanted to have a very private intimate beach ceremony just us. I had a vision but I needed to find the perfect officiant to make it happen and an amazing photographer to capture it for us. During a google search I stumbled upon Donald's wedding services; I must say I'm so happy I did! He answered my thousand questions and my almost daily emails and took the stress out of it. He has a wonderful sense of humor and even made us laugh during the ceremony. I met his wife the photographer the day of the wedding. She is also a very kind hearted, sweet, easy going woman. She captured our wedding perfectly!! I am obsessed with how amazing the photos came out. What a wonderful joyous team that made our wedding everything we ever dreamed of. It was perfect!
