Such a joy to work with!
We loved working with Rev.Brad for our wedding! He was so kind, fun, and so flexible with what we wanted our ceremony to look like. He is so great at what he does and has an ability to make your guests laugh and relax, which I loved! I highly recommend.Sent on 10/30/2019

Last Minute Socially-Distanced Elopement
My husband Eric and I initially hired Reverend Brad for our 100 person wedding planned for March 29, 2020. His vendor profile caught our eye because of the good reviews, his big smile, and the Journey t-shirt he wore as he officiated someone’s wedding (we’re big 80’s rock fans).
Our initial communications with Rev. Brad were great. He responded quickly and didn’t badger us with constant phone calls/texts/emails while we narrowed down our top officiants to meet up with. Once we decided to meet with him, we had a long, in depth meeting that lasted more than an hour. He happily walked us through all wedding planning timelines and what documents we would need to get our marriage license, as well as what his services would look like. We loved how interested he was in our love story, interests, and desires for our wedding day.
Six months later, it was time for our final meeting before the wedding. Rev. Brad took his time to create the perfect ceremony for us. The meeting took about two hours and we left feeling very confident that we would have the ceremony of our dreams… until March came around. With COVID-19 on the rise and everything shutting down, like many other couples, we were forced to postpone our wedding. Rev. Brad was very understanding and was able to accommodate our new wedding date on June 7th which was later postponed again to October 2020 (fingers crossed).
As weeks went by COVID-19 kept going strong and our wedding license kept collecting dust on our table, about to expire. So, we decided to elope. We called Rev. Brad and asked if he would be willing to marry us in a quick, socially distanced ceremony at a nearby park. He said “absolutely” and was able to marry us in a very sweet, intimate ceremony during a gorgeous day in April with both sets of parents attending via videocall.
We are looking forward to having our big (or at least bigger) celebration in October when Rev. Brad can tell our love story in front of our friends and loved ones. Whether you’re looking to have a big ceremony or a small, intimate elopement, we absolutely recommend Rev. Brad.Sent on 05/22/2020

Brad is the best!
I can’t even begin to express how incredibly warm, responsive, professional, and just down right amazing Rev. Brad is! He performed our elopement ceremony just yesterday and I really just wanted to express our sincere appreciation for him.Sent on 05/24/2020
From our initial meeting with him months ago, we knew he would be perfect for us! He really took the time to listen to what we were envisioning our ceremony to be and he gave us so many great ideas to make our ceremony so unique! His warm personality is infectious and we knew right away we wanted to work with him! We had just about everything planned for our large ceremony in May and were beyond excited!
Fast forward to earlier this year when COVID-19 first hit. My husband and I make the difficult decision to postpone our wedding not once, but twice! Brad was so responsive and insanely flexible with us! We ended up deciding to still have an elopement ceremony last minute. I wasn’t too sure if Brad would be available but I went out on a limb and asked. Again, he was incredibly responsive and made sure he could be available for us. He made our ceremony so special even though it wasn’t what we had initially planned. He has continued to impress us and we received so many compliments from our family on how wonderful he was! We’re looking forward to having him officiate our celebration next year! If you’re looking for an outstanding officiant, look no further!!
Love Story Weddings, Rev. Brad Hughes's reply:Hi Jordan! Your kind words and generous spirit are so appreciated! I’m so glad I could help you get married in 2020! Thank you for helping couples know it’s truly possible! Take THAT covid! Let's make your 2021 wedding all that and more! Until then, be safe! -Brad
Rev. Brad Hughes is super professional and attentive to his couples. We worked with him for a wedding and we communicated via email about the ceremony plans. He lead the rehearsal exactly how he planned with the couple. The wedding day was perfect and we would highly recommend booking Love Story Weddings!
Always a pleasure to work with Rev. Hughes!
