Super fun officiant!

We love Owen! When we got engaged he was our first choice to ask to marry us. He was super flexible with meeting times and worked with us on the wedding script. The day of he helped out any way he was asked which was super appreciated. He made everything sooo fun and easy... and joined in for a sword fight! Would highly recommend having Owen marry you!

Couldn't have been happier! Owen is the best!

We got married in New Hampshire, October 2023, and Owen made the planning process a breeze. Owen met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding to make sure that he fully understood our vision for our big day. He shared a document with all of the information he needed to plan the ceremony, which was also helpful for us because there were questions we hadn't even thought to ask! Day of, Owen was a godsend. I managed to lose my vows while getting ready, and Owen saved the day by printing me a new copy. We also decided to gamble with mother nature and host our ceremony outside, despite the high chance of rain, because we had had our hearts set on that location for years. Owen not only encouraged our decision because he knew how important it was to us, but helped to lighten the mood during the ceremony after we lost our gamble and it started pouring the second the ceremony started. He was a good sport, despite getting soaked, and was even able to project his voice enough that everyone could hear him without a microphone. Owen was an amazing officiant, and I cannot express enough how grateful we were for him. I highly encourage that all couples hire Owen for their big day. He's inclusive, positive, friendly, organized, and fun to work with! Thank you Owen!!

Excellent Wedding Ceremony

Owen did a phenomenal job with our wedding ceremony! He is very kind, professional, and made sure that our wedding day went according to plan. Owen met with us ahead of time to discuss what we wanted our ceremony to look like, and typed up a copy of the ceremony to read/edit shortly after. Owen made us feel very comfortable, and he did an excellent job with our wedding ceremony. I definitely recommend having Owen as your officiant!
