Someone once said "if you give clients their money's worth, they will return." We really don't want our clients to "return" (except for renewal of vows!), but our philosophy is to give couples "MORE than their money's worth." We believe our complete dedication to making certain the next ceremony we perform is the best ever guarantees you a wonderful and memorable wedding day.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Weddings should be happy and memorable days---doing everything we can to make certain every wedding is wonderful and joyous is truly a fantastic reward. Performing weddings is not a job, it is a labor of love!

    Any couple would be more than fortunate to have Bryant as their officiate. His expertise, kindness, professionalism, flexibility, and manner are greater than all those we interviewed and they were wonderful. Often, its the little things that count, specially when one can be under stress or unsure how things should proceed. There wasn't a time when I contacted Bryant, even late at night when I was sure he wouldn't see my message until the next day, that he didn't respond almost immediately, answering even the most rivial of questions! Being there for us and conducting a beautiful ceremony tailored to our requests, weren't the only "gifts" we received from him...the additional little gifts and beautiful marriage ceremony paper, plus photos were more than we ever expected. We were sooooo fortunate to have found Bryant! Thank you.

    Bryant was great. We had an initial 30 minute phone call with myself and my wife where we went over the overall ceremony and what we would like, and then Bryant followed up with the actual ceremony guide with various options and suggestions via email. Dana & I went through the guide, edited it to fit our tastes, and then emailed it back to Bryant. We had a quick call about 2 weeks prior to the wedding to make sure we were on the same page, and we were set. The day of the wedding, he was punctual, came dressed in a formal suit, and did a great job. As a bonus, we didn't realize he was going to take photos, but while he was waiting for us to be ready, he pulled out a nice camera, took several very nice pictures, one of which we'll blow up & put on display at home. He also helped us with the actual paperwork, providing us a tip sheet for the township we were married in with all the appropriate phone numbers and details! We are very happy with his services and the nice little touches he added. We needed an officiant, and he went far beyond just showing up and marrying us. Advice on the actual ceremony, tips on "what happens next" to get the marriage license, professional looking photos (sent to us the same day!) - Thanks Again!!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I constantly review the various state laws (I worked with the ACLU to change laws in PA a few years ago) to make certain couples I marry receive the best in advice and guidance. I also meet with my associateson a regular basis to discuss changing trends, practices and customs within wedding ceremonies. There has been many changes over the years in the way couples get married!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I enjoy being of service to others---the reason I became an officiant is because it is a wonderful way to serve others as they celebrate their love.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do whatever it takes to make certain the couple (and their guests) enjoys a wedding ceremony they will long remember with happiness.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
If I was not proud of every ceremony I perform, I would not be performing ceremonies. I try to make each ceremony better than the last---it does not matter whether I am marrying a couple with only two witnesses in my living room, or a couple with 500 guests at a luxurious ballroom. I give every ceremony my best, and as long as I give my best, I am proud of what I do!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Planning a wedding day (all the arrangements----selecting a date, a venue, a dress, shoes, flowers, food, DJ/musician/photographer, etc. etc....) involves working with many different wedding professionals---that can become a challenge and time consuming. Make certain you use a full-time officiant who is available to respond to your needs on YOUR schedule. My goal is to make your ceremony planning LESS STRESSFUL, NOT more stressful.
