    Wonderful Officiant

    When we were looking for an officiant we had no idea where to start. We wanted a nondenominational ceremony that was personal and fun. Being a non-traditional couple we wanted to customize our ceremony with our own vows and unique readings. Brian was recommend to us by a friend and after talking to him on the phone we knew he would be perfect! We met up for coffee and Brain got to know us better and asked some great questions about how we met and what brought us together. He was very helpful and supportive leading up to the wedding. I ran into some writers block and reached out for some help. He gave great advice and I was able to get into words how I felt. We had given him a few readings we loved and hoped he could work them into the ceremony. We did not get to read the ceremony ahead of time but it came out beautifully! It was perfect and real and honest. We laughed and cried throughout the whole ceremony. A few of our guest comment on how beautiful the ceremony was. Brian was an excellent officiant and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a personal and meaningful ceremony.

    I have photographed countless weddings with Brian over the years - and each one is handled with sacredness and care. He always incorporates details of how the couple met or something significant in their lives. i have always found him to be kind, professional and gracious in helping the couple through some very nervous ceremonies. He is my number one recommendation for an officiant in our area.

    I've worked with Rev. Brian Lyke since first starting out over 12 years ago and have always found him to be a caring and sincere celebrant. These qualities carry over into the ceremonies he creates for each of his couples. He also offers pre-marrital guidance, which is a helpful resource for those couples who feel they may need it. I enjoy working with Brian and highly recommend him to my couples. Patty Speirs, Every Last Detail Wedding & Event Coordination, www.eldweddings.com
