We had chosen Bob to officiate our wedding after having witnessed him officiate a family member's wedding. We were initially intrigued by his professionalism, articulate manner, and personable demeanor. As we met with Bob at the initial consultation and rehearsal and worked with him via telephone and email, it was apparent that we had chosen the right person! He listened, reflected, and told our story during the ceremony so perfectly. Lastly, for the level of service that he provides, the cost is very reasonable. We'd highly recommend him!Jul 15, 2017Verified
I cannot even begin to express how absolutely wonderful and amazing Pastor Bob is. When I was newly engaged I started looking for an Officiant. I found Thumbtack and started a search and within an hour Pastor Bob responded to me with a beautiful message and a price quote. I read all about him and was immediately drawn to him. I began to get overwhelmed and decided to put the search for an Officiant off for a while, so I never responded. Six months before my wedding date I knew I had to get serious and choose an Officiant so I did another search on Thumbtack. Again I received quotes and messages but I just wasn't feeling any peace or a sense of comfort from them. That's when I knew I had to find Pastor Bob again. Just reading his messages and profile you can feel his personality coming through and it makes you smile and feel as though sun rays are shining down and warming you. I found his information and contacted him. We met with him on a couple of occasions and he took special time to sit with us, to get to know us and really get a sense of who we were and how we were together. He took special care to learn many things about us and by doing so wrote the most beautiful personalized vows for us. He was always there with any questions and always responded to us very promptly. The day of our rehearsal he was there with my husband and I to go through the whole ceremony from start to finish. Well the big day arrived and to our great dismay it was raining (ours was to be an outside ceremony) , so it had to be moved inside. Well to accommodate this turn of events of the weather, Pastor Bob added a special unexpected story during the ceremony that had my groom and I near tears. I could go on and on about this man with endless wonderful things to say about him and his talents but I will end my review letting you know that Pastor Bob will be the best choice you could ever make! Thank you again Pastor Bob! Love, Clarissa & JeffJun 27, 2017VerifiedYour Ceremony Your Way's reply

The wedding ceremony that Rev. Hollis performed for my Husband and I was perfect. He met with us before the ceremony and he asked a lot of questions regarding how we wanted our ceremony to go. The ceremony he put together was more beautiful than either of us could ever imagine. It is something we will remember for the rest of lives. He loves what he does and it shows in his constant smile. You would not be making a mistake by asking Rev. Hollis to officiate your blessed day.Apr 8, 2015
We were traveling 7 hours away from home to have our wedding and found Ceremony Your Way here on Thumbtack. After one phone conversation and one lunch with us, Pastor Bob was able to hold the most beautiful, most meaningful, ceremony for us. Our families could not stop raving about the ceremony and how wonderful it was and how it felt like Pastor Bob knew us for years based on his words. He truly is fantastic. We had zero stress about the ceremony because, after speaking with him the first time, you definitely feel confident that your ceremony will be everything you want it to be. And the best part was... He actually made it more than we even imagined possible.Oct 24, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a sliding scale based on how much you are spending for your wedding. I suggest 5% of what you are spending on your wedding. One woman paid me $1500 and I told the wedding consultant that was obscene. She told me that the hand painted Menu Cards were from Bolivia and cost $2500. I said, "I got less than the menu cards!" Please don't pay me less than the menu cards!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to meet with a couple to make sure they connect with me and to offer them all the options that are available. I give them a list of the possibilities and have them think about them for a while. We then get together again to plan out their wedding. I then craft it, share it with them, and then we are ready for the rehearsal and Wedding. I will do marriage counseling if desired, but it is not required.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am an ordained baptist minister, but more importantly, have spent 33 years doing weddings. I have learned a lot over those years and look forward to learning even more over the next 33 years.
