Wayne was the officiant at my wedding this past May in St. Pete Beach, Florida. He did a personalized service for us that we very much enjoyed. He was professional, prompt, on time, and responded with helpful information to all of our questions. We highly recommend working with Wayne for your wedding.Sent on 07/31/2017

What can we say about Pastor Wayne; other than he is just an AMAZING person!!!Sent on 12/14/2016
To be honest, another pastor was recommended to us at first, who we selected. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, he had to respectfully break the reservation but referred us to his friend, and colleague, Pastor Wayne.
Meeting him for the first time was simply Kismet. We spoke for hours over coffee as if we had known each other for years. And felt as if we could have spent several more with him if it would not impose on his schedule. He offered a variety of service styles, passage readings, dress, etc. He allowed us free reign in modifying his suggestions, but also made sure to leave a little room for improv so as to create a totally unique and free-flowing ceremony.
He was warm and loving to our families and friends, jovial with our bridal party during rehearsal, and professional as they come with the venue staff. He was also a calming influence during the actual ceremony for us (as mist and sprinkles joined our beach-front ceremony). We are simply blessed to have had him enter our lives and complete our ceremony. All of our guests said it was the best ceremony they have ever attended.

Pastor Wayne is a great officiant and we would highly recommend him. He is prompt with communication and very personable. We were able to tailor the ceremony to our exact needs and he responded by adding the precise amount of personal touch to make our ceremony special. Most importantly, Wayne helped make our ceremony memorable.Sent on 01/21/2016
We did not specifically seek out Pastor Wayne. He was recommended through a friend of a friend type situation. Based on our initial emails and phone calls with him, we knew. He has a warm personality, attention to detail, and has the unique ability to adapt the spirituality element to your needs. Although my wife and I were raised Catholic, we chose to limit the level of religion in the ceremony to fit us.
Our wedding was coordinated from another state, so there were obviously complexities. Pastor Wayne was very available, and we felt he was there for us throughout the planning process. He also attended our rehearsal and we were happy with the level of leadership he had when directing the rehearsal. On the day of our wedding, he was everything that we needed him to be. He was calm and organized, which allowed us to be, as well. All in all, we were very happy that we chose Pastor Wayne.
On a personal note, Pastor Wayne lost his wife in the months leading up to our wedding. At times, the spirituality aspect of this profession is called into question. We can attest that Pastor Wayne understands the commitment of marriage and is the real deal.
