    Made the day perfect!

    Working with Reverend Brad, was a pleasant experience. He was very accommodating and listened to our concerns, needs, and what would make our day perfect. He met with us on several occasions to work out the details and just to check in on us to see how we were doing with all the wedding planning.

    The day of the ceremony, was perfect. Our families enjoyed the ceremony which reflected my husband and I's personality. . While sharing love story and honoring our families cultural diversity. He offered little coaching instructions during the ceremony, and he would check on us, reminding us to breathe, laugh, and enjoy the day.

    His years of professionalism and experience made for an enjoyable and memorable ceremony. We had several compliments from our families on how much they enjoyed his ceremony and that it was perfect, entertaining, and romantic. My husband and I definitely recommend Reverend Brad.

    Brad stole the show! In a good way :)

    I can’t even count how many of our guests said how amazing the ceremony was. The prep work with Brad paid off and he was able to write the most beautiful script for my wife and me. I can’t recommend Brad enough. He truly cares about his work and straight DELIVERED. Book him!

    Thanks Rev. Brad!

    Reverend Brad knocked it out of the park! We did our rehearsal the morning of the wedding and I did not attend since it was before our first look. Rev. Brad came by and talked me through some things before the ceremony since I wasn’t there and I felt completely at ease. We got so many compliments about the ceremony at our cocktail hour. It was the perfect mix of lighthearted, laughter, seriousness and prayer. Exactly what we envisioned!

    It was a more expensive route than some other officiants may be but it was worth it to have the personal touches and not a cookie cutter ceremony!

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!
