We happened upon Josiah via wedding wire while looking for a pastor to officiate our vow renewal. I am so glad we found him! He is such a kind soul and he did an absolutely amazing job. Highly recommended!Sent on 11/03/2020

Fantastic experience and result!
We received a referral for Josiah and are so happy we were introduced. Our 150 person wedding we had planned for September had to be canceled, so we decided to hold a small ceremony with our immediate family. Josiah put together the perfect video for us to provide our friends and family who were unable to attend. He captured the moments that were most important and created a very professional and enjoyable video for everyone to watch. When we received our video on USB, it arrived in a beautiful keepsake box that we will cherish for years to come. Josiah really went above and beyond to capture our marriage. At first we were hesitant to film our wedding, but are so glad we did so we can relive the magic over and over again!Sent on 09/26/2020

A truly compassionate and caring soul
Josiah helped us with a few areas of our wedding. We began by using his premarital counseling services in addition to being our officiant. As we progressed in wedding planning, Josiah also eventually became our videographer. Then... COVID-19 hit. Our plans and dreams for our initial wedding were crushed. But Josiah really came through and provided us with a venue, a referral to a new photographer after our original did not want to come with the situation, and helped us to livestream our tiny wedding to our guests who were unable to attend. He performed an amazing, personalized wedding ceremony that we (and our guests) will remember for years to come. He gave us wonderful advice and help navigating our relationship before the marriage began, and he was instrumental in helping our wedding day happen on a new date. Josiah was flexible, creative, helpful, courteous, kind, thoughtful, and without him our new wedding day wouldn't have happened. He truly cares and is so compassionate about the work that he does and his faith is unwavering. He will do everything in his power to help you have the day you've been dreaming of and to just make it happen! Do yourself a favor and get Josiah on your team - he is 100% worth it and you will not regret a thing!Sent on 06/03/2020
