Introduction: Hi friends. Congratulations on taking this exciting step in your relationship. I am an ordained & licensed Pastor. We will work together to make your wedding ceremony the very best possible. I am flexible, creative, and strive for excellence. I have officiated many weddings of all sizes and at various locations. I have also shared in some great "vow renewal" ceremonies. I do have sample ceremonies if needed as well. I certainly love seeing the wedding couple, family, and friends, basking in those special moments that will become lifetime memories. Blessings! Jp

Pastor John was very responsive and performed our wedding ceremony on short notice. We enjoyed having him as our officiant.

John went above and beyond in his service and time spent with us. John responded promptly to my many messages throughout the wedding planning process. He even took time out of his day to meet with us to get to know us prior to the wedding, and work on planning the vows/ wedding timeline. In addition, he attended our rehearsal dinner and helped make sure it went smoothly. He truly knows what he is doing when it comes to the wedding planning process! He kept our ceremony full of light, love, and God. He also is full of cheesy jokes which I love. :) He was incredibly personable, kind, and professional. It was an honor to have John as our officiant! Also, if you are local to Charleston, I would highly recommend also attending one of the Sunday services John is a pastor at. The community there was so welcoming!

If your loooking for a personable, approachable, and easy to work with officiant, Pastor John Peters is your man. Since our first conversation with him, we were highly impressed with his knowledge and love for what he does. After our conversation, it was clear that we both wanted him to officiate our marriage convenant. He emailed us various ceremony samples to choose from which we decided to use as a base for writing our own. On the day of the wedding he arrived early and carried with him a printed copy of our ceremony. Even though we made a change the day of, he willingly made adjustments to accommodate our wishes. He made it feel like we had a family friend officating our wedding. He blended well with both of our families, laughed at our jokes, and talked about how intriguing our love story is. If you want an intimate, customized, and Christian based wedding, give John a call.
Pastor John A. Peters's reply
Philena, thanks so much for your kind words. I thought I had already thanked and congratulated you here, but I didn't see it. You are a wonderful couple, and we must get together for lunch so I can hear your amazing love story. Blessings!

Pastor John is amazing and we are so grateful that he was such a special part of our wedding day! From our first call with him we knew we had made an amazing decision. He spent the time getting to know us as a couple, is extremely personable, and is an amazing public speaker. We had the pleasure of meeting him in person a few months before our wedding and could see how very loved he is in the Charleston community. He worked with us on personalizing our ceremony and his PERFECT delivery during the ceremony still makes us smile! Our guests were also raving about him throughout the reception – that is just how great he is!! We are so thankful that he made our day so special! We highly recommend Pastor John!! Anna and Scott

Pastor John was absolutely wonderful, so glad we chose him as our officiant. He was very personable, attentive to our needs and a true man of God. This man has a heart of gold, I wish we lived in the area so we could attend his church. He was punctual for our ceremony and was well prepared. Thank you Pastor John for making our day so special!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is a suggested price. Sometimes couples can pay a little more or little less. Ministry is valuable, of course, but putting a set fee on it doesn't really fit my idea of serving others.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Typically, I will be contacted or make contact with a couple by phone. We can then exchange more details about their desires for the ceremony. I will email several sample ceremonies to the prospective bride/groom so they can look over possibilities to make their service the best for their needs. Sometimes, the couple already has their service planned out and that is fine as well.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I do attend weddings on a fairly regular basis as an invited guest and observe the unique ways different ministers officiate those weddings.
