Wrote Us the Most Amazing Ceremony!
Josh was our celebrant for our 10/19/19 wedding. We met with him in person a few times before he hand crafted and wrote our entire ceremony, which was perfect!Sent on 11/16/2019
Josh conducted our rehearsal (and kept our surprises a secret) as well as our ceremony. We could tell that he has done this before because of how professional he was. He was amazing with our DJ (to coordinate when to fill in with music), our day of coordinator, venue and family.
When we met with Josh, he asked us some questions and really got to know who we are as a couple. He took notes and sent us over a written draft of our wedding. He completely wrote the entire ceremony, utilizing our input/wants and it was absolutely amazing. The first time (and pretty much every time) I read it, I was in tears it was so beautiful. We had a few ideas we wanted to incorporate into the ceremony and Josh took those and made them even more special. He had the audience laughing, crying and happy - exactly what i wanted. I received so many compliments about how beautiful our ceremony was and I felt the same way. It was unique, heartfelt and honest.
It was easy to see that Josh truly cares about what he does and is passionate about being in such an important role in the wedding. Thank you so much for crafting and performing our dream wedding ceremony!

Professional, Special, Perfect!
My husband and I do not practice any religion nor are we affiliated with any. It was important to us to keep that out of our ceremony and we didn’t really know where to look. I came across Josh here on Wedding Wire and it was the best thing that could have happened. Josh is one of the friendliest people we have ever met. He was extremely attentive in terms of flexibility and communication and treated us with such love and professionalism. Josh actually ended up writing a custom ceremony for us - we are both theater people and it was “a play”. It fit our relationship to a T and our friends and family believed that we had known Josh for a long time - that is how much he gets to know you as a couple. He also is incredible in terms of improv - our backyard wedding included some yard work noises and he played it off incredibly and with some humor - it was very special and perfectly timed. I can not recommend Josh and his services enough. He made our ceremony a dream come true and it would not have been the same without him.Sent on 10/13/2019

Can’t speak highly enough!
My husband and I are so happy with our decision to have Josh officiate our wedding. From the first meeting, we really enjoyed speaking with Josh. We found him personable, funny and genuinely interested in our story.
The ceremony he wrote for us was perfect. He made it so personal there is no way it could have been a ceremony for anyone else. Our guests were laughing and engaged the entire time.
At our reception countless people told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and where we “found him.”
We highly recommend going with Josh. You’ll be happy you did!Sent on 09/30/2019
