Rev. Simmons acted more like a brother than a stranger I met through this app in search of an officiant! I loved his organization (his business package, the process he uses to get familiar with my fiancé & I) punctuality (he came a whole half an hour early which was awesome as I’m really big on time management) responsiveness (there’s not a time I’ve messaged Rev and had to wait more than 30 mins to get a response) and most of all the way he customized our beautiful, personal wedding day script!! He did such an amazing job and I just feel so blessed to have picked him!!! God bless you sir!Feb 25, 2021Verified

There’s just so much to say. Ian was sooo amazing. I love him my husband loves him and everyone who witnessed our union loved him. He really made sure that he did his best and that nothing came to him as a surprise (speak about professionalism) ☺️. I thank God for him and the work that he’s done. He goes above and beyond for the couples he officiates for. And he truly cares. You will be a blessed couple to have him officiate your wedding day ♥️. Thank you so much Ian. Truly a beautiful soulFeb 28, 2021Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I would prefer to speak to a new customer via phone or even on Zoom to get a better understanding of the services that they would need for me to provide. I will ask them for their email address. In the email will be attached, an agreement/contract as well as an option of several wedding scripts that they can choose from.
