Phenomenal Rev. Phil
Rev. Phil presided at my daughter's wedding and he was PHENOMENAL! In preparing for the wedding, he obtained information on the bride and groom and families, which he used to personalize the wedding ceremony in a very entertaining but respectful manner. Everyone at the wedding loved him!Sent on 01/25/2020

Rev Phil = Perfect ceremony
Rev Phil is absolutely amazing. One of my duties as the Mother of the Bride was to find an officiant for the ceremony. And, with a daughter that strives for perfection in everything (apple doesn’t far from the tree), all my tasks were cut out for me. Rev Phil delivered PERFECTION. His planning with the bride and groom to tell their Love Story went above and beyond. During the ceremony, we were all laughing, crying and smiling. I have had so many attendees ask if Rev Phil was a friend of the family because his intimate knowledge of their love story was deeply and strongly portrayed through his words. His planning process in getting to know the bride and groom is the key to turning their love story into an amazing heartfelt ceremony. Not only is his planning outstanding, but he is quick on his feet. When the bride and groom’s 4 year old son was too shy to walk down the aisle, the groom retrieved the youngster carrying him and his sign down the aisle. Rev Phil narrated the entire event and read the sign that was to be carried by the youngster .. Daddy, here comes our girl! The attendees loved it! Thank you Rev Phil!

Make room in your budget and be prepared to be blown away!
You, just like us, will have sticker shock when you meet with Rev. Phil and see the prices for his service. You, like us, will have budgeted a modest amount of money in your wedding budget for an officiant fee. Like us, you'll hem and haw over whether it's really worth the price. Now that the ceremony is a distant memory that we relive through photos and our wedding video the absolute best choice we made was to hire Rev. Phil as our officiant. I would have spent twice the amount for the service and experience Rev. Phil provided. He is thorough - thoroughly thorough - to ensure your wedding day is smooth, picture-perfect, and memorable given his extensive experience with weddings, what works and what doesn't. He had our guests roaring in laughter and our guests still (two months later) comment on how awesome the ceremony was. The ceremony! Not the reception, not the food, not the beautiful venue on which we spent way too much money...just the ceremony. And it's because of Rev. Phil. You CANNOT, you WILL NOT, go wrong with Rev. Phil. If money is tight, cut something else out or pare some other element down to make room in your budget for Rev. Phil. Months and years later you'll be so grateful you did.Sent on 01/24/2020
Our team loves working with Reverend Phil! He is organized, detailed and very personable. Highly Recommend!
Collaborating with Reverend Phil for Jason & Christine's Wedding was a wonderful experience! He is a true professional that is committed to what he does and is a difference-maker in the industry! Our teamwork was spot on, communication was great, and fed off each other throughout the ceremony as I provided audio support, organized, and directed the process with him! I can't wait till the next time we get to work together! A seamless and exciting process it will be! You owe it to yourself to witness all that Reverend Phil can help you create for your ceremony!
Rev. Phil has serviced many ceremony events at the Grove and has a warm and friendly way as he works with the couples who get married here.
