Perfect ceremony with Rev. Mike!!

We would highly recommend Love Story Weddings for your wedding day officiant needs!

Our officiant, Mike, was absolutely perfect and we could not be happier with our decision to work with the Love Story Weddings team. Their process for creating a personalized ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. Mike was very thorough in the planning process and always made us feel like he was invested in learning about myself, my husband, our entire love story.

He created a ceremony that was PERFECT for my husband and I and exactly what we wanted to celebrate our love and share it with our guests. We got so many compliments from our guests after the ceremony about the love story portion and how much they loved the personalization and getting to hear about how we met, fell in love, and got engaged.

Mike did such a great job and knew exactly how to balance the fun, sentimental, and humor in the ceremony. He was so professional and the way he led our ceremony, our friends and family thought that Mike had known us as a couple for years.

We would highly recommend Mike and the Love Story Weddings team for any couple looking for an officiant on their wedding day!

Bryan delivered an amazing ceremony!

Bryan was our officiant, and our ceremony was PERFECT. He took the time to get to know us and our story beforehand, and we loved how the ceremony centered around our story as a couple. He was great to work with and super communicative, and the whole thing was perfectly "us." We got so many compliments from guests. Thank you, Bryan!

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!
