My new husband and I could not be happier with the service provided by Rev. Phil; he was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. He made sure that we knew he was available to us if we had any questions or concerns, and gave us a script weeks before our wedding so there were no surprises. It was great! My bridesmaids told me that they had never been to a wedding with such a detailed rehearsal! It was so nice knowing exactly how everything would go — it really calms a bride down! 🙂 He also made sure to leave us a special gift when all was said and done. Very, very thoughtful!

We had such a great experience with Rev. Phil. It was so nice to have someone extremely knowledgable about wedding ceremonies to guide us through the process. On our initial meeting we enjoyed talking with him, answering his questions, and getting to know the person who would marry us. Getting the script before the wedding ensured that there would be no surprises. I didn’t think that having a personalized ceremony would be that special, but I was wrong! We had so many people come up to us afterward and tell us know special and fun the ceremony was. Rev. Phil’s style and personality was a great addition to our wedding day!

The planning process started early on with a couple in person meetings (before COVID turned wedding planning upside down!). Rev. Phil is very thorough while planning the ceremony process. He lays everything out in a script which goes through several rounds of edits to make it perfect. No detail is left out, which makes the day run extremely smoothly. The ceremony was very personal and special. We knew we wanted the ceremony to be about us and our love story, and Rev. Phil definitely delivered. He told the story of how we met, and how my husband proposed. He also shared what we love about each other which was a very romantic and personal touch. We got so many compliments from guests! It was a beautiful day and a beautiful ceremony. Rev. Phil does a great job!

Rev. Phil was a perfect solution for us – we wanted something religious and we are Catholic & Lutheran so finding a church to get married in was a challenge. My husband travels for a living and we didn’t have time for church-sponsored pre-marital classes, either. Rev. Phil met us in person twice and went over every aspect of our ceremony – both recommending what is traditional and providing guidance on the pieces we wanted to customize. He let us see the script ahead of time so there were (ONLY HAPPY) surprises on the day-of.We just got our photos back and most of them are of us smiling and laughing at the altar. This is what we wanted, a ceremony that felt like “Us” not a stuffy formal ceremony. Rev. Phil did that for us! It’s a very personal process and he’s very open to whatever you feel defines you as a couple. One of my bridesmaids said “He made your love story sound like a Disney Movie!” He takes the time to mention bridesmaids, groomsmen and audience members in the love story to make it even more personal,which was a touch several of our guests (those lucky enough to make it into the ceremony) loved and are still commenting on. 🙂 Rev. Phil was awesome and worked perfectly for us and our ceremony.
