“Looking back on our wedding day I never expected our ceremony to have gone as perfectly as it did. Nor did I fully realize the expertise, effort and detail an officiant would need to make it so.

From day one Rev. Paul demonstrated how much he cared and how truly important this day would be to us.  He really got to know us. He could have just read our website and had an idea, but he went the extra mile time and time again. 

The ceremony had all of our guests engaged, crying, laughing and living in the moment with us thanks to Rev. Paul’s storytelling. We could not recommend Rev. Paul enough! Worth every penny!”

Rev. Paul is AMAZING. His words brought smiles, tears, and all around happiness and made our ceremony beyond complete and perfect in so many ways. Every single one in our wedding party said he was one of the more fun reverends they’ve ever met and heard and every one of our guests gushed about how brilliant of an idea the secret love letter was for us to do.

Now from David and I, I have tears in my eyes just writing this, but this entire experience with Rev. Paul — from our first zoom meeting to our last words after our ceremony — has been flawless and so great. He was so helpful and fun to work with, he took the time to really get to know both of us both individually and as a couple. He articulated to our guests during our ceremony the meaning of love and having God in our relationship, and his toast before our wedding to our wedding party, parents, and to us reminded us why we chose to work with him in the first place. He got us from the beginning and I cannot thank him enough!

He made our day beyond special for all! He truly has a gift and we couldn’t be happier with our experience with him and I Do Weddings!
