The Best Part of Our Wedding

Anthony was so helpful throughout the wedding process. He really worked with us to personalize the ceremony and capture our relationship. He offered guidance on our vows and ways to incorporate our cultural practices. I cannot recommend him enough!

Punctual officiant with a charismatic voice

It was great to have a member of the LGBT+ community officiate our wedding. Anthony understood our desires and expectations for the ceremony. He was extremely easy to talk to and offered to help fix an issue that popped up the morning of our weeding. He had a calming and reassuring voice on one of the most stressful days of our lives.
