8. Best Day Ever Officiant
"John is a polished and engaging public speaker with a sharp sense of humor and an incredible ability to connect with others- whether it be family, friends or complete strangers! For that reason (and countless others), choosing John as our wedding officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. After our April wedding, my husband and I had so many family and friends (including some of our vendors on-site!) tell us our ceremony was one of the most beautifully done ceremonies they’d ever witnessed. John delivered a powerful message about marriage that was tailored perfectly for my husband and me, as John had met with us many times before the wedding. During these meetings, we were able to walk John through what kind of service we wanted (length, tone), what kind of vows would be meaningful to us, etc. I also appreciate that John asked us to describe how we met and tell him stories about the milestones in our relationship (some of which were hinted at in his ceremony address and caused lighthearted chuckles throughout the audience). Prior to the wedding, John prepared us for what to expect day-of and also provided premarital counseling by recommending books, asking open ended questions, and recommending little things we could do to stay in tune with each other throughout the journey of married life. John went above and beyond in his officiant and counselor duties and I could not recommend him enough!"
