Rev. Phil spends a lot of time with you and preparing your ceremony. He really cares.

If you are still searching for an officiant for your wedding look no further!! When my husband and I were looking for someone to marry us we didn’t know where to start. My background is Catholic and my husband’s is Christian so we were unsure whether to lean towards a pastor or priest but each of us not looking to convert the other — Reverend Phil was our perfect solution!

We were able to quickly book an appointment to meet with him in person to talk about what type of ceremony we wanted and booked him on the spot! Rev. Phil made both of us feel comfortable being from different backgrounds and was very accommodating to our needs and wants for how religious to make our ceremony. Another plus was that he was always easy to get ahold of whether it was email or text and he always responded quickly (which was super important to me as a planning bride!). We also met again in person closer to the big day to go over all of the ceremony details and fine tune EVERYTHING! I had absolutely nothing to worry about and could rest easy the days before the wedding because Rev. Phil had it all under control.

What makes Rev. Phil worth every penny is how personal he makes your ceremony. Our wedding made people laugh, cry, and was so unique and memorable!

Rev. Phil gets to know so much about the two of you as a couple during the planning session and vice versa that it feels as if someone you’ve know for years is the one who is marrying you and the love of your life! Our ceremony was personal and unique to US! To this day we still have guests raving about how memorable it was!

My husband and I would highly recommend Rev. Phil to all of our friends, family, and strangers!

Rev. Phil gets to know so much about the two as a couple

Rev. Phil was absolutely phenomenal! My wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant. Our guests were engaged the entire ceremony. Rev. Phil is a great storyteller/writer and takes the time to sincerely get to know you to make this possible. Rev. Phil makes sure that every detail is absolutely perfect, and that’s what makes him a true professional. He made our ceremony the highlight of the day!

Rev. Phil Landers was absolutely amazing–very funny, nice, and definitely experienced–has a natural gift! I love how he takes the time to get to know you as a couple in a few short meetings and somehow manages to make his speech sound like he’s known you for years. It really adds to the ceremony and keeps the interest of your guests so they aren’t bored with another typical wedding ceremony; and everyone gets a chance to hear your “story” from day one! He really has a way of touching the hearts of many brides and grooms! Although quite pricey, I would definitely recommend to any future Mr. and Mrs. — cut your budget elsewhere and do spend the money on Rev. Phil!

Reverend Phil Landers was the PERFECT choice for our wedding on 1/23/10. He took the time to meet with us for a couple of hours where he learned all about us and our beautiful story of meeting, falling in love, and the proposal. The best part was that he REALLY cared and enjoyed learning about us so that he could convey that emotion to our guests at the wedding. Rev. Phil was very professional in that he was very fast at responding to any questions we had, reminding us when payments were due, showing up to scheduled events on time, and helping in any way that he could. 

He ran our rehearsal and I attribute a perfect ceremony to how he managed the rehearsal and made sure everything was perfect. Our wedding coordinator at the ballroom where we got married said that she sees a lot of people who come in and officiate wedding who just don’t care. This is not the case with Rev. Phil Landers, and I would recommend him to anyone. Our guests were roaring with laughter throughout the whole ceremony which made the whole thing very personal and special. 

Rev. Phil will create a very unique wedding for you that your guests will be sure to enjoy. Thanks Rev. Phil for creating a beautiful wedding ceremony for us — it made our day just that much more special. 5 stars!!
