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 had Michael as an officiant for our wedding. We could not be happier or more pleased with how our ceremony went! Every step in the process was super easy, and afterward I kept hearing over and over how great the ceremony was and how personal it was and how much people enjoyed it. Thank you so much. I highly recommend Asheville Marriages.Sent on 11/04/2019

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
