Mr. Larkin performed a great service for us, exactly what we wanted. He even threw in a personal touch because he was a teacher at my high school (we were both at X high school at the same time, but she has aged more gracefully than I). We wanted a short ceremony, and he delivered. There were equal opportunities of laughter, reverence, and contemplation, which appealed to all. 10/10 Would highly recommend hiring Steve Larkin as your 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.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 20 guests or fewer • 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

I have nothing to say but so thankful for Steve. All the words he said during my wedding ceremony was so touching. I love his personality he was so down to earth and made all of people feel comfortable. I 100 recommended him to be your wedding officiant.

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! ❤️
