    LoveNotes and Buster Noah were excellent!

    We had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID. unfortunately our original minister was not available for the new date. We came across LoveNotes and were blown away! We had no idea a company like this existed.. but we picked our officiant, did a Zoom Call to learn more about him and way he loves weddings so much, then had a few check ins and met Buster at the rehearsal. It was everything we wanted and then some. fully customizable, Buster was extremely responsive and the price was very fair. Buster and the rest of the crew at LoveNotes genuinely enjoy presiding over weddings, and you can tell he just feels comfortable at the alter which made up comfortable. We would absolutely recommend this service, and Buster Noah in particular!.

    Perfect and unforgettable

    Marty was the most wonderful charming professional wedding officiant ever! We don’t have enough words to thank him. Our wedding ceremony was customized from beginning to end. Marty provided us with all the tools. He came to rehearsal as well. Highly recommended! Marty’s professionalism and expertise made our wedding day perfect. We laughed, cried, rejoiced, and will forever remember such a wonderful day!
    Thank you so much Marty!

    10/10 officiating - Funny, emotional, and awesome communication

    Buster was awesome! We had a fairly last minute change of officiant but Buster stepped in and knocked it out of the park. He was great with communication, and the questions he asked so that he could fill out his speech were easy and fun to answer. He was very open and shared multiple drafts of the ceremony before our big day.

    Additionally Buster made a huge effort to mingle with guests and family, and everyone remarked about how warm and friendly he was, which came out during his ceremony.

    10/10 would suggest getting Buster and the team to officiate your wedding!

Barron  Bell
Barron Bell
Associate Minister

Barron Bell is a Texas boy through and through. He is a native of Dallas, TX, a graduate of Texas A&M (Gig ‘em Aggies!) and he completed graduate studies at Austin Presbyterian Seminary. Barron has spent 42 years providing ministerial services to people from all walks of life. His experience includes assisting couples in achieving their goals and dreams for their big day. He believes every bride and groom should be able to say ‘that’s exactly what I wanted’ at the end of their ceremony. He has learned it takes both creativity and sensitivity when working with couples, their families, and their vendors in order to give brides and grooms the wedding of their dreams and ‘keep the peace’ at the same time. Barron says, ‘The wedding lasts for a day, but relationships last forever…if people are considerate of one another. It’s important to keep that in perspective when planning a wedding.’
