If you found Father Vince and are considering having him officiate at you wedding, LOOK NO FURTHER, and, run (don’t walk) to book him now!
When Laura and I first started looking for an officiant, I assumed it really didn’t matter who we got, so long as at some point he said “you may now kiss the bride.”
Let me just say, how wrong I was. Father Vince made all the difference, and our guests are still commenting on what an incredible ceremony he performed. Yes, Laura and I were there too, but the combination of Father Vince’s warmth, wisdom, and message, as we blended our two families was perfect.
Naturally, one might ask “why,” and “what made Fr. Vince so good?” So let me explain:
Prior to meeting, "Vince" and his wife, Christine, made a point to e-mail extensively with us regarding who we were, and what we were looking for in our ceremony. Then, with a template in place, we discussed at length what our ceremony would be like, family participation, and how much spirituality and religion we wanted to incorporate into it.
Vince met with us beforehand so he could learn even more about our lives. We sat like old friends and discussed how we met, our circumstances, and hopes for the future. He took the time to take notes, ask questions, and perhaps, most importantly, to become our friend. He demonstrated that he really cared. So much so, that we felt like we were talking with a favorite Uncle who happened to volunteer to perform our wedding ceremony.
When our day finally arrived, Father Vince was there (early) and getting set up. He then delivered a ceremony with the perfect blend of spirituality and meaning that we hoped for. In fact, he was so complete in his message, and in his knowledge of us, that after the ceremony all of our guests just assumed he was either a longtime friend or family member.
If you seek a custom wedding service with a meaningful message of love and harmony, talk to Father Vince and Christine. Laura and I are so glad we did!

The perfect piece to our puzzle!
Father Vince was an incredible solution for us. My mother is a devout Catholic and my beloved is not a Believer. I am very spiritual and wanted someone who brought a little magic to the day. He exceeded all of our needs and remains one of the best parts of our special day. We are still receiving rave reviews about how he captivated everyone from the first moment. It was a true honor to partner with Father Vince. He listened to what WE wanted - something extremely valuable to a couple during a vulnerable and emotional time. He delivered an extraordinary ceremony that was in alignment with who we are and still resonated with everyone in the room. He takes his role seriously but with a fantastic and necessary sense of humor. From start to finish, he emanated pure Love. What more can you ask for your wedding day?!

Working with Father Vince was a pleasure. He tailored every moment of our ceremony to be about us. When we approached him, we had been disappointed that we could not have Catholic ceremony at our venue and he helped us work through those concerns. He helped us grapple with some decisions we needed to make about how much of our religion we wanted to incorporate into our ceremony. He was completely willing to adjust his style based on what we wanted. Additionally, he helped us work through some questions we had about traditional Catholic weddings, working with the church, and also offered us resources outside of his scope to help us prepare for marriage. We got many compliments from our guests after our ceremony who enjoyed his sincere, yet casual style and felt it was a very personal and intimate ceremony.
Rev Vince, offers the whole package. He is a skilled minister and an excellent counselor. He is my former boss and was a kind manager and supervisor. You would do well to have Father Vince as your officiant.
