Philip and the whole team at Asheville Marriages are amazing at what they do. We were referred to Philip when we contacted another officiant in the area who was unavailable, and I'm so glad he was the one to make our wedding official. He is very professional- from the opening email and ensuing phone calls to post-wedding "to-do's", everything was top notch. We are living across the country, in California, and he was able to work with us, with the time difference, to set up meetings and really get to know us. We never met in person until a few weeks before the wedding but it didn't matter, it was so natural. We also used the "Marriage Enrichment" program which Philip offers for an extra fee. It was beyond worth it. Even if you think you already know everything about someone, the program brings up great conversations and questions that may not come up otherwise. I'm sure that each of these conversations made our marriage and bond stronger, and really helped us write our vows as well. The program also helped Philip get to know us better. We were amazed when we read the first draft of the ceremony that he wrote for us. It was as if he had known us for years. The final version (we changed very little) was just perfect. It incorporated our family, our friends, and really our entire lives!Sent on 07/11/2017
The day of the ceremony, Philip was on top of everything. He made sure we were ready, the vows, the acoustics, the layout....everything. We had a few bumps in the ceremony, nothing that we could have planned for, and he worked through the bumps like a pro. Our guests loved him and raved about his ceremony, his jokes, his cool demeanor and his natural ability to bring out the importance of our day.
I cannot recommend him enough, and the rest of the team. I feel like instead of just getting an officiant, we made a new friend, who we will always remember for his part in our wedding.

Best decision ever
Let me begin by saying that Phillip was the most complimented vendor at our wedding. Our guests loved him. I will also admit that I was apprehensive about hiring an officiant but my (now) husband preferred we do so and I obliged. Best. Decision. Ever. We hit it off with Phillip immediately and he quickly absorbed our vibe, our preferred ceremony style, likes, dislikes, and everything in between. The way Phillip presented our ceremony made us feel like we had known him for the entire decade we have been together. Our guests felt the same way. They kept asking how long we knew him and it was all because Phillip took so much time, effort, and paid lots of attention to the details of our personal love story which he then translated into the most amazing ceremony. Everything Phillip did and said made us feel like he was around for every year of our lives together and my husband and I had such an amazing emotional connection with his readings. I highly suggest using Asheville Marriages; you will NOT regret it. Phillip was the perfect person to speak about our relationship and we are forever indebted to him for making our special day so amazing. Again, even if you are hesitant to hire an officiant, I promise you, you will not regret choosing Asheville Marriages.Sent on 05/07/2019

We LOVED our officiant from Asheville Marriages - would highly recommend to anyone!!
Our experience with Asheville Marriages was truly wonderful! We spoke to the owner of the company prior to booking our officiant in order to gather some preliminary information and answer some questions. We were put in contact with Rodney, the officiant for our wedding, who sent us a Google doc of the ceremony for us to review and fill in some information. He was very easy to reach and communicate with through email and very thorough in the ceremony plan he sent us. The ceremony was exactly what we were hoping for - it was beautiful and intimate, but also inclusive for our friends and family who were present. Rodney did a wonderful job with the ceremony, we absolutely couldn't have asked for a better ceremony or officiant!Sent on 07/18/2019

Phil Lingle is an experienced officiant that we enjoy working with very much. He is always prepared, always organized, and always professional. What my clients love most about his ceremonies are the many personal details he includes and the ways he manages to make everyone involved - even the guests - feel like the are an important part of the marriage process.
Phil and the rest of his crew do a wonderful job. They create a beautiful ceremony! We highly recommend them! DJ Robby A Bride's DJ
