    Excellent Personalized Service

    We met with Joe and talked about our background and he put together an amazing personalized ceremony for us. A few tweaks and it was everything we could have hoped for. He was incredibly nice to work with and extremely personable and professional. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

    Just wonderful and would highly recommend!

    Rev. Joe Orlando took great care to meet with us online (as we were coming in from another state) and really wanted to get to know us as a couple to personalize the ceremony. He kept us posted every step of the way and provided us with readings and ideas to customize the ceremony to us. He went above and beyond what we hoped for and we had so many wonderful compliments on the service and his delivery. It was quite meaningful, personalized and made for an intimate wedding. Our best man forgot one of the rings, and Rev. Joe was ever the professional and helped us through with light humor, which everyone loved. We highly recommend Rev. Joe Orlando for your wedding!

    I wish you the best!

    Highly Recommend Rev. Joe!

    Reverend Joe took the time to really get to know the both of us in order to create the perfect wedding ceremony. He made sure to keep the ceremony professional while also remembering enough details to truly personalize our wedding. On top of that, he was very quick to respond to our emails with any questions or concerns we had throughout the wedding prep process. I would highly recommend Rev. Joe for anyone looking for an officiant in the Southern MD area and beyond!
