Not enough stars to rate; Amazing!!!

Where do I start, from my initial meet with Reverend Lou before the pandemic I knew he was my officiant. From our initial meeting he was kind, professional and just a good hearted soul. He took the time to learn who we were as a couple. He Wanted to learn about our family and customs. He created a custom ceremony symbolic of who were. Pandemic hit! Our wedding had to be rescheduled….I coordinated my reschedule around his availability. Reverend Lou was amazing throughout the process. His office super professional and buttoned up. When we met right up to the ceremony he was more than I could have wished for. He was on time and the ceremony til this day is the highlight of our wedding. Everyone of our guests raved about the ceremony content, his delivery, his amazing robe, and his demeanor. He is the greatest officiant you will ever meet. For an amazing ceremony reverend Lou is the real deal. Did i mention we love him! Amazing human being. His office and staff were extremely responsive, professional and checked in with us frequently. Every ceremony he creates is unique.

I’ve been to weddings after mine and the officiants cannot compare to him. Polished, poised, professional, creative, articulate, empathetic, humble, funny as heck and most of all amazing at his craft.

Book Reverend LOU. He’s amazing!

By the way everyone loved his hair! 😀

This survey does not have enough stars to rate Hudson Valley Officiants. 10000% worth it.

Don’t skimp on your ceremony.
