Exactly what we needed in an officiant.
Judge Tom Armstrong was exactly what we needed for our ceremony. His website was incredibly helpful in putting together the ceremony that was truly perfect for us- and he was a great speaker and organizer. Our guests commented that he was really great at keeping everything moving and delivered the perfect tone for our special day. Couldn't have been happier! Thanks, Judge Tom!Sent on 05/20/2019

Tom is the best! My husband and I were married at Como Park Conservatory's Sunken Garden, where Tom has performed hundreds of weddings. He was so knowledgable that it was like having our own wedding planner. Tom brought a humor, charm and grace to the ceremony planning process that was absolutely invaluable. We enjoyed his many anecdotes throughout the decision-making process and found his website very helpful in providing ideas. We were able to write our entire ceremony, which Tom delivered beautifully. He was punctual, helped usher out-of-town guests, and was so genuine it was like having a friend officiate. Can't recommend his services enough!Sent on 02/23/2019

Made our day!
Tom officiated our wedding at the end of October in the Sunken Garden of the Como Conservatory. He shared many ideas and helpful pieces of information as we prepared for our day (including sample ceremony options to use or to customize to our liking, best ways to go about name changes, getting our marriage license, etc.), which was extremely useful, convenient, and appreciated. On our wedding day Tom was very fun, relaxed, and personable. Everyone loved his demeanor and how his officiating was the perfect balance of class with humor. We are very happy to have chosen him to be our wedding officiant and highly recommend him to others.Sent on 11/11/2018
Tom Armstrong has been a pleasure to work with in weddings over the years. When a bridal party tells me that Tom is the officiant, I know I am in good hands. I like the fact that I can count on following his cue during the ceremony with ease. He adds that special touch to a wedding that all couples really appreciate. He will make everyone in the bridal party comfortable, and make sure everyone is on the same page to provide a smoothly run ceremony.
I worked with Judge Tom Armstrong at the Mermaid last year. We was absolutely exceptional! Highly recommend.
I have enjoyed working with Tom at a few weddings, and am always impressed by his professionalism, sense of humor, and a voice that commands attention. You can trust him to carry out your ceremony in a fun and distinguished way, making your most special moments memorable.
