In addition to day-of formalities, he'll cover all of the little details often overlooked by others, guide you through the marriage license process, rehearsal, and connect you with any other professionals you might need.

Amazing & Personal Experience with our officiant
We lucked out with Paul as our officiant through an elopement package. After I received Paul's name I checked out reviews & I was so happy to read all the positive experiences other couple have had with Paul. He lived up to all the hype! We skyped Paul to meet (we lived 3-4hours north)& answer question for Paul to get to know us. My husband & I wanted a simple wedding that reflected who we are individually & as a couple. Paul was able to personalize our ceremony every step of the way. It was different & unique to what we have worked for our relationship to be. I love that our entire ceremony start o finish is our own, including our vows & personal sentiments. We had such a fun, easy, organic experience with Paul to create our ceremony. He was a tremendous help leading the way, giving input, & listening to what we were brainstorming!Sent on 02/04/2020

He made our wedding day very perfect & very special!
Paul made sure our ceremony was the most special, meaningful, happy moment of not only our wedding day, but our lives. He took the time to get to know us & learn who we are as a couple. He also reminded us of our love story & what brought us together as a couple. Paul is very creative, he does a custom ceremony and vows which are very unique and special. He is the best & he made us very happy. He made us feel the love & reminded us of the special memories that we shared together. Paul is very attentive & he does everything with meaning from the heart. His ceremony was in perfect detail, he captured everything. Paul is a kind & genuine person. We believe he is the best officiant ever & we are proud that he lead our wedding ceremony! We will never forget our special day & how special he made us feel. Thank you so much for being apart of our day Paul! :)

Paul nailed it!
The thought Paul put into our ceremony was absolutely amazing. The cadence in which it was delivered was soothing and meaningful. Paul had mentioned things that we had forgotten we had shared with him. Melanie, my bride was blown away by his thoughtfulness and effort put into our day. Paul, we thank youSent on 07/18/2021
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!
Paul was GREAT to work with! He was friendly, professional and has a great sense of humor. We loved working with him and highly recommend him.
