There are no words to describe how phenomenal Pastor Bob is. From our first phone conversation, my husband and I knew we had to have him as our wedding officiant. Trust me......We were not disappointed. His personality is so fun loving and he fit right in with our wedding crowd. He really put us at ease in the most important time in our life. You can easily tell he absolutely loves what he does and it's shown through his work. We were planning our wedding states away and Pastor Bob had the best ideas and was so communicative with us throughout the process. He encouraged us to truly be "us" during our ceremony and helped us tailor it to exemplify our love for each other. Our guests are still raving about how awesome out officiant was, and I highly recommend Pastor Bob if you want the wedding of your dreams. We're so thankful for our new found friend and all his hard work to give us the ceremony of our dreams!!Sent on 05/19/2016

St. Simons, GA Wedding
Pastor Bob was awesome! He came up to GA for our events and was very flexible, accommodating, personable and fun. He officiated our wedding flawlessly on a Friday night and even took amazing pics!!Sent on 08/20/2019
The following day he professionally conducted a memorial service for my brother that helped my family through a tough swing of emotions.
Family members and guest said what great wedding service and weekend it was and pastor Bob had a lot to do with that.
First Coast Ceremonies's reply:Thanks Ed, it was truly a privilege to be a part of your family for the weekend - I’ll never forget it!

Pastor Bob is truly the best!
We truly enjoyed Pastor Bob from the moment we met him until the end of our special night! He took the time to get to know us and communicated with us often, which is key during the wedding process. He was very flexible and let us customize our ceremony to make it just how we imagined! On top of everything else he had some great suggestions for the ceremony and helped put us at ease during the rehearsal and lead up to the ceremony. He was very professional and he has a kind heart and big smile! Even our wedding guests loved him!Sent on 08/11/2019
We really appreciated Pastor Bob, and more than an officiant, we feel we gained a friend who was there for us on our most special day. We highly recommend First Coast Ceremonies!
