Reverend Louis made the ceremony very enjoyable for everyone, made it very lovely and also provided comical relief during certain moments. I would recommend him to anyone.Sent on 09/04/2017

Professionalism, Expertise, Quality.
Reverend Louis was a complete professional from beginning to end. Once we decided to approach Hudson Valley Officiants, we were not once disappointed in our choice. I am a rather tough skeptic due to a career of dealing with salespeople, but Reverend Louis did nothing to make me suspicious or think we should not trust him. Reverend Louis met with us several times and conveyed a genuine interest in our relationship. At no point did I feel like he was attempting to sell us on any extra services or drive up his price inappropriately. The whole process was very transparent and pleasant. He was quick to respond to all emails and phone calls. He kept very in-touch and accessible. When it came time for the ceremony, Reverend Louis showed up early and made his presence known. He did an outstanding job in general, but for me, he really shined in his work to prepare us as a couple. Reverend Louis of course walked us through the legal ins and outs of what we were doing, but he also gave advice like what exactly to bring to the clerk's office, how exactly to fill out the forms, how many marriage certificate copies to order so we aren't scrambling for documents to get to this agency or that authority, everything we have to do to change my wife's last name, even how to get the most out of our venue and what we could expect from other vendors we were considering. He made a special point to make sure we were both sober and aware of all the things the document we were to sign meant before allowing us and our witnesses to sign it. The signed license was immediately filed with the State and we had no problems. I always felt like we were in very good hands.Sent on 10/09/2019
The ceremony he provided was beautiful and concise. In preparation, he set the wedding parties at ease with his humor and professionalism. He was respectful but also very much "in-charge" when it came to how the ceremony was going to go and made sure we as the Bride & Groom were not going to have to deal with any nonsense. Every option we selected happened. I would recommend Reverend Louis and Hudson Valley Officiants to anybody considering them to do their wedding. There's enough insanity that can happen during a wedding. I loved Reverend Louis because there wasn't any drama with him, but the real magic of Reverend Louis is his ability to prevent drama before it starts. We got every penny's worth of our money, in my opinion.

Reverend Louis is THE BEST!
When my now husband and I were beginning wedding planning, we were anxious in figuring out how to blend his and his family’s Catholic background and mine and my family’s agnostic one. Rev. Lou came highly recommended by our wedding venue, The Grandview. After speaking to him on the phone, I instantly knew he was the perfect officiant for us. They warned us he was very popular and thus books well in advance, but he was luckily available 1 year out for our wedding.Sent on 10/09/2019
Rev. Lou was originally an ordained Catholic priest who broke away from the church and went towards more of a Unitarian denomination. He’s funny, cares deeply about his job, easy to work with, and did a phenomenal job in writing a custom ceremony for us. It was the perfect blend of light religion and spirituality, and I loved that he met with us a month prior and designed it with us, so it was customized to our level of beliefs.
My parents and extended family (again, mostly agnostic) raved about what a delight he was in performing our ceremony. I’ve been to a few weddings where the religious figure seems to be a bit rude to the couple and/or the ceremony is very impersonal – Rev. Lou is the exact opposite of those! I have nothing but amazing words to describe him and how he performed our wedding ceremony.
Seriously, book him now! You won’t regret it!
