    Father Christopher is a true gem!

    I am SO glad I came across Father Christopher while searching for an officiant! We spoke over the phone first and, before I knew it, an hour had gone by. Father Christopher is incredibly patient and kind, as well as respectful and intelligent. He came up with the perfect draft for our ceremony right from the start, and we only had some minor additions/subtractions. I received immediate compliments on how sweet, unique, and lovely the ceremony was (and people are STILL talking about it)! That is, in large part, thanks to Father Christopher. I will be forever grateful to him for making our wedding ceremony about the two of us, our families, and the love we all have for one another. Thank you!

    Great Father to work with

    Father Ross was very easy to work with and amended the ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. He also told us his opinion on what he thought worked well, what didn't, when he thought the service was too long for what we wanted, etc. He was very prompt in sending over the details and sending new drafts as well. The ceremony itself went very well, Father Ross is very well spoken and knows when to emphasize certain parts of the readings.
