Couldn't Have Chosen Better!

Rev. Christopher with the Universal Heart Ministry is truly a blessing! My now-wife and I are a military couple (a veteran and newly enlisted), and have been struggling with the demands of the military. Wanting the ability to be stationed together, but not wanting to push up our actual wedding, we decided to get the legalities out the way. We decided to do the online remote wedding, that way we could have our paperwork together and able to be processed for the military, yet still be able to have our formal wedding on its original date.

At first I was skeptical and nervous, and thought that it would alter or devalue our marriage and wedding process. Feeling as it was some type of low quality and cheap elopement. It was all but that!

It was high quality, grade a service, and a truly beautiful experience! We're even more excited for our in person wedding now! Rev. Christopher was the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! He was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process! He was always super quick to respond, so flexible and accommodating, professional, knowledgeable and just willing to go above and beyond. We never felt like a burden and his follow up is immaculate. What was most surprising was his sense of humor. He is super funny and easy going! I was super nervous (even during the ceremony) but something about his energy was just always so warm and calming and reassuring! It truly felt as if he cared about us and we were not just another number. As if he was our pastor and we knew him our whole lives! He held our hands throughout the whole process, from initial inquiry to post-ceremony. You just can't beat an experience like that! We even had a smaller package, that was a quick and easy ceremony, but it did not feel rushed at all! He's so patient and kind!

Rev. Christopher's services are super affordable, better than sooo many other's that I saw when I was shopping around, but you don't lose value at any package level and his level of service.....PRICELESS! The overall experience makes us want to have him perform our in-person wedding as well!!! Everything was quick, easy, and smooth!

Extra information: We are African-American, late 20's and early 30's, lesbians, and are not apart of any religious groups. It can be hard to find, or hard to be comfortable, or even hard finding a church or pastor or officiant who is truly comfortable performing a wedding ceremony under these circumstances. But not with Rev. Christopher and the Universal Heart Ministry! We felt so welcomed, never felt judged, and were never disrespected! He even was able to able to accommodate our religious preferences (Pagan and Spiritual). Unbelievable!

If you've made it this far, lol, I just want to say: Please do not hesitate to choose Rev. Christopher and the Universal Heart Ministry for your wedding and marriage needs! You don't even have to be in the same state or location! --P.S. For my military couples or soon to be apart of the military, everything is legit. Yes, your marriage license holds up in the eyes of the law and for governmental purposes! Don't worry about where you are in the world. Time zones are not an issue. Near or far, together or separate for sometime....Rev. Christopher can and will get it done! Take care! And congratulations in advance to all my future newlyweds!

Awesome Vow Renewal Ceremony!

My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a meaningful vow renewal ceremony that Rev. Christopher officiated. He was a delight to work with during the creative and fun planning process, and his calm, laid back personality kept us relaxed and able to truly enjoy our ceremony. His big heart and caring personality, along with his knowledge and professionalism, made our special day even more amazing. Rev. Christopher is awesome!
