I don't even know where to start! Let me begin by saying that from first contact Larry is extremely responsive and professional. I called him and he picked up the first time. He sent me an email with some information within half an hour. From that point on to my wedding day, if I called or emailed him, I got a response always within a half hour! This is so important to me! 2 days later we met with Larry at a Starbucks, my husband, myself and our 3 year old son. He didn't look at his watch at all, he wasn't rushing us at all- the time he set aside for us was truly for us. He had a whole binder of things ready to show us and ideas to present us with, because we had no clue where to start or how any of this goes. We were able to simply pick and choose what we wanted. He told us a few stories about himself after I asked him a few personal questions, and he's an interesting guy if you've got time to hear about it! Later that day he emailed me a complete "script" basically of the whole ceremony and we could tweak whatever we wanted.Sent on 03/23/2015
On to the actual day- Larry was there early of course, long before myself. He came up to my dressing room to speak with me quickly and make sure I was ready and prepared. Honestly I was so nervous that I can't even remember what we said! But I loved that he came. He asked us if we wanted a casual or formal ceremony- we opted for casual. Larry was so funny and it made us less nervous. Our mothers loved the roses offered to them (1 of his ideas), and guests told us they loved the Celtic Knot Tying ritual that Larry did (another of his ideas) and that they had never heard about it or that that's where "tying the knot" originated, and we are both half Irish! Several people came up to us and told us our reverend was "amazing"! I totally agree- at the end of the night, I found a copy of the signed wedding license in my bag- he thought of everything. I am so grateful for Larry, for making my day so stress free. Thank you Larry!

Larry is fantastic! My husband and I had a spur of the moment wedding, so we ended up giving Larry a little less than 1 month’s notice. Not only did Larry meet with us immediately, so as to be able to tailor and personalize the ceremony to us, but he also got everything ready in time and performed a beautiful ceremony. Larry was extremely professional and kept the ceremony light, engaging and fun. My guests, particularly my mom and sister, thought Larry was a perfect fit for us. I highly recommend Larry!Sent on 06/08/2018

The perfect ceremony!
Larry officiated our wedding for us on 6/8/19. From the moment we met him, we knew we were in good hands. We instantly felt that he was perfect for us, and it was by far the best we had felt about any vendor. Throughout the stressful process of planning a wedding, I knew I didn't have to worry about our ceremony, and that it would be beautiful. And it was! I told Larry I wanted our ceremony to be "lovely," and that was exactly what he delivered. Larry has a great personality, and knows the perfect balance between serious/and light-hearted, making the ceremony feel personal and again, beautiful. Our guests came up to us all night and called the days following the wedding raving about how special, intimate, and "lovely" our ceremony was. I cannot recommend Larry enough!!Sent on 06/26/2019
