We LOVE working with Larry Goyda from Meaningful Marriages! We have worked with him multiple times. He quickly responds to phone calls and emails, is extremely kind hearted and pays close attention to details. He is fully committed in making your ceremony as personalized as possible. Weddings can be stressful but Larry comes prepared! Throughout the ceremony he keeps eye contact with the guests, discreetly poses the couple for the photographers and videographers, and speaks from the heart. He is very laid back and patient, making your day go much smoother! We HIGHLY recommend him :) Cheers, - Steady Creek Cinema, LLC (Bethany & Andrew D'Amico)
As a professional colleague and friend, Larry Goyda is a wonderful Minister, who creates beautiful ceremonies. He is fun to work with, compassionate and a very lovely soul! I cannot express how wonderful he is! I recommend him to everyone that wants a fantastic minister to marry them!
A delight to work with! I speak both as a musician who has performed at weddings officiated by him, and as a bride: he was the officiant at my wedding 9 years ago!
