Craig was perfect for our wedding on 9/21/13! My husband is nondenominational Christian and I am not very religious at all but would describe myself as nondenominational Christian. Craig was very open to creating whatever type of ceremony we wanted. He had suggestions, but nothing was nonnegotiable. We loved that. We also loved all of his suggestions that we could potentially use for the ceremony. Craig's suggested readings and vows were the most creative of the officiants we met and definitely fit our personalities. We both chose vows from Craig's list because they were perfect for us. Craig made it very clear that everything on his list of suggestions were only suggestions and we were able to choose anything listed or not listed.Sent on 10/23/2013
We received significant complements from our guests regarding the ceremony. Craig made the ceremony fun. He added humor and his own little touches. Many people asked how long we had known him. They were shocked when we told them we have only met with him twice. Once for the initial interview and once to discuss our choices for the ceremony. Craig was extremely responsive via email throughout the whole process. He truly enjoys what he does and I would not be surprised if I saw him at one my friend’s future weddings. Everyone was very impressed with what he had to say and how he delivered it. We never ran through all of the ceremony word for word regarding what he said and I was extremely pleased with the personal touches he added and I truly enjoyed listening to what he had to say about marriage. Included in his services, Craig does one premarital counseling meeting, he provides an awesome list of questions for you and your future spouse to discuss, and he runs the rehearsal and the ceremony. Craig is also insanely reasonably priced.
I highly recommend Craig for couples looking for a nondenominational officiant. He really tailors the ceremony to the couple and their personalities. He made our ceremony very memorable.

Such a Great Officiant and Person
Choosing our officiant was very important to us and we could not have picked a more wonderful person. From the start, we had a great connection with Craig and he worked very hard for us before he was even hired. We met with him at a Starbucks and talked for a long time as he got to know us. After this first meeting, we were so impressed that I even turned down a family friend’s offer to officiate our wedding for free because we knew Craig was the right officiant for us. In addition to getting to know us, he offered us great material for readings and how to get our marriage license completed.Sent on 12/22/2018
We met with Craig again after booking him as our officiant and he helped personalize our wedding ceremony. We turned down a few other officiants along the way because their ceremony felt too “cookie cutter” and Craig does a great job of making your ceremony personal to you. During our rehearsal, Craig was the perfect mix of good humor and snapping people to attention. We had a rambunctious bunch for our wedding party and he got us through the rehearsal very efficiently. On the day of our wedding, all of the time Craig spent getting to know us came out as he mixed in our personal stories and messages throughout the ceremony. He did such a great job that I had several friends admit to me later that they thought Craig was related to me!
Craig, thank you again for all of your hard work and time spent with us. We hope to run into you again.

Look no further, Craig is absolutely AMAZING! He was so helpful and responsive throughout the planning process and really took the time to get to know our story and personalities. He helped customize the ceremony to fit our vision and had tons of great suggestions when we weren't sure exactly what we wanted to do.Sent on 07/01/2018
We received tons of comments from our guests about how flawless our ceremony was. Most of them thought we had known Craig for ages, that's how well he captured us. We would recommend Craig a thousand times over, he exceeded our expectations by a long shot and his services are worth every penny.
Craig is fantastic to work with! He is great at getting all the family and bridal party organized and ready for the big day. He goes over all the details ahead of time and makes sure everyone is comfortable and on the same page. He is an absolute pleasure to work with! Nicole Sloane Sloane Sisters Event Co.
