    Best officiants ever!

    Ernie did an amazing job with our ceremony. When he spoke it was so fluid and it was like he knew us for years. He took the time to get to know us. We have been to a lot of weddings and he鈥檚 the best! He gave the best speech about us during the ceremony. He was professional and early to the event. Everyone in the audience was captivated and kept attention during the whole ceremony. He has a great sense of humor and is very down to Earth.

    5 year Vow Renewal

    Ernie was wonderful! Throughout the planning process, he was very attentive during the Q&A to make our ceremony customized to us and highlight our personalities. During the months / weeks / days leading up to our event, Ernie was very responsive to any questions we had throughout. During the ceremony, his calming presence helped me through the ceremony and reading of my vows. I'm somewhat shy and loathe public speaking even if front of loved ones and people I know. I'm not one who speaks loud and I get very emotional. Ernie was whispering affirmations and positive words to keep me focused and calm. We both just want to thank Ernie for such a beautiful service that we will cherish the memories we made that day forever! Sincerely Paul & Steph Saunders
