Phil and Gwen were wonderful to work with prior to the wedding as well as during! We were unsure about a sand or unity candle ceremony during the wedding, then Phil suggested the golden rope/knot ceremony that was perfect for us! At our wedding, we signed the marriage license before the ceremony and Phil was warm and funny and put everyone at ease during this nerve-wracking day. During our ceremony, he was well spoken and eloquent and all he said was from the heart, he never once read any notes! Throughout the rest of the day and even after, various family and friends mentioned how great the ceremony was and how impressed they were with Phil. One of my engaged bridesmaids also loved the rope/knot ceremony and will be using it in her wedding next year. Thanks so much Arizona Ministers for making our wedding ceremony a memorable success!

The Best of the Best

Gwen was the most kind-hearted soul, and working with her was an absolute pleasure. She made our day absolutely effortless. She took all of our worries away by thoroughly guiding us through our ceremony. She made it a mission to ensure we remembered every moment of our BIG DAY. She had everyone captivated by her speech and just in awe of our beautiful day. Thank you so much, Gwen!

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.
