    All we remember were the hugs and laughter

    Stephen Simmons was our officiant at the venue Silo and Oak. He also gave us premarital counseling. He even thought of questions we never thought to ask each other. When designing the ceremony itself, he made the process easy and personal. He made us feel like family. I am very shy , and on our special day I could relax and focus on my love. We were in excellent hands. We now have beautiful memories of a wonderful day at a lovely location; and all officiated by a kind and gentle man.
    Thank you, Stephen!

    Helpful, Professional, and Personable!

    If you are looking for a wedding minister, I recommend I Do Ceremonies 100%. Mr. Loren Jones was our officiant, and he was awesome! He had that sense of "calm" that resonated with you that you can only dream of before you walk down the aisle. They send you an outline document with SO MANY options of each part of the ceremony to help give you ideas of how you want your ceremony to “flow.” I never knew there was so much involved until I hired them, but I am so thankful. There were very few dry eyes in the audience. Loren took our very planned out ceremony and added his own humor and personality. As we were having an outdoor wedding, our sound system (not I do ceremonies property/problem) was having connection issues from the mic to the amp but Loren handled it with grace and kept pushing through. Communication from the company was great and we cannot think of one complaint. Thank you, Loren, for help making our day unforgettable. Thank you, Steven, for setting up our initial meeting and explaining the whole process. You all rock!!

    Eased my social anxiety!

    Steven was an absolute blessing for our ceremony! I wouldn’t change a thing. I love how personal it was—Stephen had a phone call with us to learn about us and our love story, explain how the day would go, and discuss what we wanted from the ceremony. He then sent us an outline for the ceremony, starting with the procession and ending with the recession. Every moment we were able to copy and paste from his website, where he has DOZENS of options, or we could write our own. We chose premised options for each section, then edited them to be more personal. We were able to get the exact length we wanted, which really helped with our social anxiety. The day of, things went so smoothly! He was punctual and so friendly. He is a very warm person and I could just tell he wanted to make our love extra beautiful. It was a truly lovely ceremony and I wouldn’t change a single moment of it. Thank you, Stephen!

Stephen Simmons is by far one of the best in the business. He cares for his clients as much as someone can, and it shows. I know when he is working a wedding at my venue that I can sit back and not worry because we are all in great hands. He is so knowledgable and has so many great ideas on how to make your ceremony a one-of-a-kind piece that doesn't seem like it's been done a million times. He will have you feeling relaxed, and even giddy, by the time you get to the ceremony that you will forget how nervous you were!! You are in the absolutely best hands with him!!
