Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: NOW AVAILABLE FOR ONLINE/VIRTUAL WEDDINGS IN NJ, AND PA (travel fee applies to NJ). VIRTUAL WEDDINGS ARE NO LONGER LEGAL IN NYS. I DO NOT USE PHONE OR EMAIL FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY UNTIL LATE NIGHT - PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL LAST MINUTE IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM ME WHEN IT ISN'T MY BUSINESS HOURS. ALSO, I WORK IN A PLACE WHERE I CANNOT USE MY PHONE, SO I CANNOT ALWAYS ANSWER IMMEDIATELY - IF I TELL YOU I CAN DO SOMETHING, I CAN, DON'T WORRY IF YOU DON'T GET AN ANSWER TO A QUESTION IMMEDIATELY. I started doing weddings in 2007, and I have done around 1,000 weddings since then. I go out of my way to be friendly, personable, and give personal service rather than just cookie-cutter weddings. I am flexible on pricing to a loss for me, but always give the best service no matter what. I love to travel, so I don't mind traveling far to serve you. In the past I have traveled as far as South America and Europe for weddings. I love performing weddings and delivering speeches at other events. Serving others and making people happy is a great source of satisfaction.

Joseph was extremely responsive to any and all of our questions. He gave us some great suggestions for our wedding ceremony. He traveled very far to do this for us without a complaint. He made our ceremony easy and wonderful. We would highly recommend him!!

Joe was amazing. He communicated with me every step of the way. We had a small wedding at home with a few family and friends. We have several dogs who decided to be apart of the wedding. Joe was easily able to adapt to included our dogs. Everyone enjoyed it! Thank you so much!! I highly highly recommend him! He’s personable and professional!

Joe officiated our wedding ceremony yesterday , it was the ceremony I always wanted. Although it was about 90 degrees in the sun , joe had the friendliest and most positive demeanor and guided my husband and I through our vows beautifully. We are non religious , we had guests of all religions and each one thought my ceremony was beautiful and were moved by the words spoken. I spoke to Joe throughout the whole process of planning my wedding and I was able to reach him with any questions or concerns easily. I highly recommend Joe and feel very blessed to have worked with him.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal
