My fiance and I met Ben for the first time at a local coffee shop after a brief phone call to describe our ideal wedding. He was professional, friendly, and well prepared for our discussion. Ben offers a wide variety of options when it comes to officiating and makes it very easy to either fully customize the entire script or use more traditional methods. From the moment we hired him to the day of the wedding, he provided scheduling support, reminders of when to complete certain tasks, and allowed us to change our script as many times as we needed to perfection. The day of the wedding went perfect! Ben was promptly on-time, delivered a beautiful message to our guests, incorporated every story we requested, and even pronounced my very difficult last name flawlessly (you wouldn't believe how many weddings I've been to where they butcher the grooms name....). His presence was warm and inviting for our guests and he spoke so clearly that even Morgan Freeman would be jealous.Sent on 12/14/2018

Thank you, ben!
Ben was absolutely wonderful to work with!! As an interfaith couple, we wanted aspects of both of our religions to be incorporated into the ceremony, and Ben was knowledgeable and helped us to seamlessly and beautifully represent both faiths. Ben provides a lot of helpful guidance, while at the same time allowing us as a couple to really make the ceremony what we wanted it to be. Ben was a huge part of making our big day as special and magical as it was!! Thank you Ben!!

Ben Personifies "Above and Beyond"
We were referred to Ben by my now father in-law. Ben is truly a wonderful person and an even better officiant. I had heard SO MANY HORROR STORIES from friends and relatives of entrusting officiants online.Sent on 11/26/2018
One story included an officiant that incorporated religion into their service despite their requests to “keep it light”. Another told me about how a female officiant plugged a book she had written the entire time THEN tried to sell people copies following the service.
Needless to say, I was overwhelmed. We had originally asked my husband’s father to get ordained and do ours. When he doubted his ability to keep it together emotionally, he found Ben for us. We met him one night after work to get acquainted. We spoke about ourselves, our relationship and Ben filled us in on how he operates.
He lists out options. He lets YOU decide the ceremony and service YOU want but above all else- he is there to guide you the whole way if you don’t know how to conceptualize it or put your love for another into words.
He helps you decide what’s most important to you and your significant other. That is, and was, so important to us. We had a beautiful mix of secular and non-secular themes but it all boiled down to what was most important to us: our love and our story.
Ben if you’re reading this: thank you. Sincerely, you are wonderful and I don’t know if I was able to tell you in person how much we appreciated you on our wedding day. Anyone who has the pleasure of having you perform their ceremony service is beyond lucky and blessed.
