Andy is better than anything I could have dreamed up myself!

Andy was amazing from start to end, and weaved our story into an amazing ceremony that we will cherish and laugh about. He even teased my husband when he jumped the gun on saying "I do" mid ceremony, and added a small flower accent to match the flower girl's flower crown last minute. Andy is also flexible, - he worked with us on tweaks to vows, and we really felt the ceremony was an amazing reflection of us, our vibe, and our love.

My husband also loved that there was no long questionaire to respond to. Andy took time to have a chat with us and learn about our story organically, and wove a great story for our ceremony just from our chats! He included other small stories that were important to us (Saint Vitus, the thin red string, and our own journey for example).

Thanks a ton for everything, and for sharing your anniversary with us, Andy. Your humor, smiles, and energy really made our day special.

Couldn鈥檛 have asked for better!

Andy did such a great job from the time we first reached out to him about officiating our wedding. He was so easy to talk to and followed through with the ceremony exactly how we wanted! Our guests also had nothing but good things to say about our ceremony. Highly recommend!

Seriously, the best officiant I have seen. I do 20-30 wedding ceremonies per year as a DJ, and Andy has a great way of combining his personality and humor to every ceremony he officiates. Most importantly, he tells a great story for the couples that he is working with. Highly recommend you check him out if you're getting married!
