He did great! We really appreciated him marrying us and on such short notice too (the day before)! He was super nice and professional and made sure to speak to the entire family. It was a great night.Mar 1, 2020Verified
On June 18 we found this website looking for an officiant for our wedding that was to take place on Friday, June 21 because the person who was supposed to officiate canceled on us last minute. Needless to say we were absolutely panicked. Pastor Rudiger responded to us within minutes saying he would love to officiate for us. We had a very small wedding in my husband‘s parents backyard and Pastor Rudiger made it such a beautiful and meaningful experience. He has a way of speaking that makes you less nervous and relaxed. The vows he wrote and the passages he chose couldn’t have been anymore perfect. He happily took pictures with us and gave us a lovely keepsake of the vows and passages he read printed out in a nice little booklet. He also makes an audio recording of the ceremony and uploads it to YouTube which is wonderful. For less than three days notice I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it couldn’t have been any more perfect. We HIGHLY recommend Pastor Ed Rudiger.Jun 22, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price varies depending on the required travel. Excluding driving expenses, my fee is $100.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to make initial contact on the telephone. If counseling is desired, we'll set up a date for meeting. For weddings that don't involve counseling, most of our work can be done online, although I'm open to personal meetings.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a graduate of Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and have been an ordained Presbyterian minister for about 30 years. During that time, I'm officiated 100s of weddings, but I've never done the same service twice. I've developed a system by which couples can create their own weddings. I'm licensed to officiate services in West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
