Best officiant we could have asked for...
We reached out to Rev. Phil due to all his amazing reviews and although it doesn’t seem possible, he was even better than expected. His unique approach to weddings is difficult to put into words, but I’ll try.Sent on 03/10/2019
My husband and I wanted a non-traditional wedding, as we are older and it was the 2nd wedding for both of us. It wasn’t until we really started to plan did we realize how difficult it can be to host a wedding in a venue that doesn’t specialize in weddings. And we wanted our ceremony to be meaningful and made important, which can be especially difficult when you’re not in a church. Throughout the planning process Rev. Phil was so detailed and organized, our wedding turned out absolutely perfect. He has a unique gift of telling your love story with just the right amount of humor and sweetness. He made our guests a meaningful part of our ceremony- they laughed, they cried, and they couldn’t stop talking about our wonderful wedding.
Rev. Phil is a true professional with a unique gift of connecting with couples and eloquently telling their story. We are so grateful that he made our wedding incredibly special. Hire Rev. Phil - you’ll be so happy you did!

From the initial FaceTime interview to the actual ceremony every thing went together without a hitch!. Phil Lander is very organized and thorough about all details. He is very gregarious and all of our families and guests enjoyed his company at the reception. We were very happy with the entire event!Sent on 05/01/2019
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.
