Highly recommend him!!

Rev. Passantino was so wonderful to work with!! He officiated a very small wedding ceremony for us this past weekend and it was perfect. He provided us with a ton of different materials/readings to choose from as we planned the ceremony. He was extremely flexible in incorporating some material that we had sent him last minute and he was also flexible as it took us a bit to confirm the exact time of our ceremony. Lastly, we were able to arrange for him to play guitar before and after the ceremony which was a nice added touch for us. We are so happy that we chose him for our special day!

The best officiant!

Rev. Phil was wonderful to work with! It was really important to my husband and I that we find someone who we clicked with and felt really comfortable with to perform our wedding ceremony, and Rev. Phil was wonderful! He was so warm and friendly and kind, and he put us right at ease. He make sure to get to know us and made our ceremony extra special and personalized, sharing our little stories and details about our relationship in the best, most lighthearted and touching way! All of our guests told us how wonderful our ceremony way. Rev. Phil brought such a bright, warm energy to our ceremony which was just what we were hoping for. We would recommend Rev. Phil to anyone and we are so happy to have worked with him!!!
