    Reverend Louis is THE BEST

    I knew once I saw the amazing reviews of Reverend Louis on Wedding Wire, that he was going to be the perfect fit for us. Not even 10 minutes into our initial meeting in his office did me and my fiancé look at each other and nod in agreement that we wanted him as our officiant! Reverend Louis is so open and welcoming, and is not afraid to add some light hearted jokes into your ceremony (with our permission of course). Our ceremony was so beautiful, I highly recommend the personalized ceremony, so worth it. Reverend Louis from beginning to end made our wedding so special and easy going. HIGHLY recommend!!!
