    John Henry Scott couldn't have done a better job! He was professional, did our vows exactly how we wanted them, and made everyone in the room laugh. After the ceremony was over, everyone continued to talk about what a great job he did and how much they liked him. He answered all of our questions, whether by email, phone, or text, timely and thoroughly. We would recommend him to anyone.

    My husband and I both loved Jackie Gantt. He was punctual upon arriving and our guest enjoyed him also. He also added some words to the traditional vows we requested. He is very professional and I would definitely refer people to him. He also asked how we would like him to dress, as far as the colot of his suit,he ended up matching the groomsmen. The ceremony went as planned despite the rain it was still heavenly. Mr. Gantt also placed our wedding papers in the mail for us,as he said he had to pass the post office on his way out. That was a big deal to us considering how busy it was after the ceremony. It was a such a blessing we found Mr. Gantt right in time for our big day. My husband and I applaud his services and give him an A++

    After ten years of marriage my husband and I renewed our vows. Not knowing Rev. Scott I trusted him to say the words of wisdom and love that we based our marriage on. He did a wonderful job. I also love the fact that he donates a majority of whatever you want to give him to charities. Thank You REV. you made an impression on all of us!! God Bless You..

    We were so pleased with Rev Jackie (John) and feel blessed that we connected and chose him to perform our wedding ceremony. He has an honest, humble and humorous demeanor, is easy going and comfortable, and clearly loves to do what he does. He did a wonderful job and will always be a part of our wedding day memories.

    You cant go wrong with Mr. Scott
    Mr. Scott was a wonderful choice for the wedding I planned, which was small and intimate. He arrived early and did an outstanding job of officiating my wedding. I honestly don't think I could have made a better choice. He was kind, humorous and helped to make my day beautiful. Everything was exactly how I wanted it to be. I'd recommend Mr. John Henry Scott to any bride to be. His wonderful personality and warm smile is a bonus to his kindness and professionalism. Thank you Mr. Scott. The Jacksons

    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! Kathi Stephens ie now Kathi Muessle :)
