Wedding Officiant

Having Steve be our wedding officiant is the best choice I've ever made. He is now one of our most important people in our lives, by being great witness of our marriage and making it official. Steve always reminds me of our grandpas because of his smile, the way he talked, and his white beard. He's so professional, enthusiastic, and heartwarming. He got us covered and let our day be our day. No words can express our gratitude. Best wishes to you, Steve, and your wife.

We would give Steve 1,000 stars if we could. He really took his time answering all of our questions and made sure he knew exactly what we wanted prior to our wedding day. On 11-8-2020 he preformed the PERFECT ceremony for us. His passion for what he does is so evident and the love he brought and delivered was so powerful. We got so many compliments from our family and friends on how wonderful the officiant was. We couldn’t agree more. Steve, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. We will remember you forever! ❤️

We are so happy we chose Steve to be our officiant. He spoke the most beautiful words and we felt as if it pertained perfectly to us. After our wedding my wife continued to bring up how great she though Steve did. I highly recommend because you will be thrilled with the outcome.

Steve was a very down to earth man, was understanding of what we wanted our ceremony to be like and he delivered. The things he said we're perfect! He stayed for tea and all the guests got a chance to speak with him...he was a big hit. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a good man to be their officiant.

    Not complicated at all: $150-? depending upon how far I have to travel and the kind of ceremony desired.

    Very simple. We visit, decide on what the couple is looking for, then I design a ceremony tailor made for them.
