Tom was so easy to work with from beginning to end! I first contacted him during the busy holiday season a couple of days before Christmas, and I still had extremely prompt responses, which was my first clue that I had found somebody special. Even though Tom has a busy schedule with all of his weddings, he kept track of mine and prompted me with questions to keep me on track and on schedule. He was always so helpful and courteous. On the day of our wedding, he arrived over 30 minutes early so as to not stress us out. All of the guests at my small wedding mentioned that he took time to chat with them, and they were all so impressed by his positive attitude and overt friendliness. When the best man was 15 minutes late to the ceremony, Tom remained calm and helped us talk about how to proceed. The ceremony itself was lovely! I absolutely cherished the ability to write every word of our own ceremony so that is completely reflected our values and what we wanted to say. I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. I would recommend him to every couple. Absolutely fantastic!Sent on 10/10/2019

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.
