Wedding Officiant

Reverend Joe is a very nice person. He listens to us and works with our requests. It’s very easy to communicate with, and he responds quickly. Even though there was a last minute change with our venue and time, he still accommodated us. Thank you so much for officiating our wedding.

Wedding Officiant

I cannot say enough about how happy we were choosing Rev. Joseph Schmidt as our wedding officiant! From the moment we first reached out, Joe was quick to respond to our inquiry and schedule a time to talk further to go over questions we had and to discuss specifics of the ceremony. On the day of the ceremony, Joe was punctual, organized, and full of positivity. He spoke loud and clear and infused a little humor when appropriate. We could not have asked for a better person to marry us! Thank you, Joe!

Wedding Officiant

Reverend Joe made our special day a very memorable event. We were so touched by his delivery and the time he alloted to get our vows and declaration of marriage to fit our wishes. He is personable, relatable, and passionate about his work. I highly recommend Rev. Joe to anyone looking for a Wedding Officiant. He will add that touch of faith and blessing in the ceremony and wow the guests. He ended up our ceremony with an Irish prayer. A lovely and memorable event. Thank you Reverend Joe.
