    So very happy we found Paul!!

    Paul spent the time getting to know us as a couple, he did an amazing job representing our relationship during the ceremony. Wedding planning can be so very hectic and sometimes the process can take away some of the meaning. We feel that Paul was able to bring us back to just being two people, very much in love, and reminded us how much stronger we are together.

    Highly recommend!

    Paul was an amazing officiant at our wedding. He really took time to listen to our story and weaves everything into a beautiful message during the ceremony. Several family members mentioned how much they loved how the ceremony was performed. We highly recommend Paul to any couples who are looking for something truly special!

    Marriage With Meaning's reply:

    I am really honored that you and Abdul asked me to be part of your wedding. I loved talking with you and how easily you poured out what you love and appreciate about one another. You two truly have a wonderful life ahead together!

I finally had the pleasure of working with Paul on a recent wedding and was so impressed. We have very similar philosophies about how a wedding day should go. Smooth, easy, not rushed. He took a page right out of my book, reminding the couple to breathe and take it all in. His calm, cool demeanor was appreciated. Paul just has an amazing energy about him. I would definitely recommend him to future clients, and hope to work with him again very soon! Update 9/10/18: I had the pleasure of working with Paul again this past weekend and it was absolutely flawless. He has such an ease about him, which is not only appreciated by me and my staff, but the couple and their guests, as well. I had several guests approach me and tell me what a great job he did. He just simply knocks it out of the park every time. :)

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul many different times and it is always a great experience. He is one of the nicest people that I have met and is extremely professional. He is always at the rehearsal the day before the wedding to make sure that everything goes flawless for the big day. You can tell that he is extremely passionate about what he does and you can assure that your ceremony will go smoothly and be full of passion and love with Paul leading the way. I would highly recommend him for anyone that is searching for an officiant, you will not be disappointed!
