Phil was professional, personal, and a pleasure to have perform our marriage ceremony. When we met with him for our initial session, his humor and light hearted nature made him a natural pick for us. He and Gwen thought out every detail and made sure that our day went as smooth as possible. They are definitely a blessing!

Phil Waring was wonderful!
We are so happy we chose Arizona Ministers to officiate our wedding. Phil Waring was wonderful! Phil took time to get to know us and customize our ceremony based on our personal story of how we met and what brought us together. As we talked with Phil, I was amazed at how much Phil and I had in common and how well he understood me and my bride to be. I believe things happen for a reason and it was as if God placed Phil in our lives at that moment to make our wedding perfect! Phil is an experienced professional but he is also very warm and personable. I would highly recommend Phil Waring and Arizona Ministers to officiate your wedding ceremony.

Gwen was amazing!
My wife and I had an intimate destination (we're from Canada) wedding ceremony at a private residence in Scottsdale, Arizona. The vision for our ceremony was 'romantic' and 'non-religious', and Gwen executed this beautifully. She provided us with some guidance on the words and readings to choose, and she also memorized and recited a quote/reading we provided her the day before our ceremony. Gwen's suggestions, planning, and impeccable attention to detail made us feel as relaxed as possible in the lead up to our ceremony. This was especially important to us as we planned our Scottsdale wedding from our home in Canada. It was a pleasure to meet her, and we're very appreciative for how she enriched our special and memorable day.
Over the past 20 years we've had the pleasure of seeing Philip Waring at several events. The Warings are very attentive and kind. We would not hesitate to recommend them.
I love working with Phil and always love seeing the passion and love he has for what he does. He is such a kind hearted person and knows how his work can really affect a wedding ceremony. He is the only officiant I will ever refer.
Phil and Gwen are consummate professionals who perform flawless ceremonies, but it goes way beyond that. Arizona Ministries embraces the bond of marriage and gives it the respect and attention to detail and treats each ceremony like it was family.
