    A Great Choice for Your Wedding Officiant!

    Rev. Vaughan was so kind and pleasant during our entire wedding process. He asked my wife and I some basic info about ourselves and the kind of service we were hoping for, which he used to create a ceremony script he sent us to review before hand. We provided him with some feedback - a few additional lines etc and he made the changes with no problem. The day of the wedding, Rev Vaughan was on time and officiated a smooth and wonderful ceremony -- and this was with him experiencing a flat tire on the way to the venue that afternoon! If that doesn't show his devotion and level of service, I'm not sure what will. He also delivered our marriage license to the county clerk for us in a timely manner which allowed us to leave for our honeymoon with no worries about paperwork. You wont regret hiring Rev. Vaughan and my wife Emily and I highly recommend his services.

    Rev. Edward Vaughan

    We chose Rev. Vaughan as the minister for my son and daughter-in-laws wedding. He is a very humble man who did an amazing job of not only pre-marriage counseling but also marrying them. He is approachable and easy to talk with. I would highly recommend Rev. Vaughan!!

    Middle Tennessee Minister's reply:

    It was a pleasure to meet such a wonderful couple. I feel strongly they will have a great life together. I loved meeting the whole family. It was truly my honor.

    Amazing service by an amazing person

    When looking for an officiant for our big day, we had no idea it would be such a difficult process. As every individual is different and has their own style, you have to ensure that style fit your style which made finding one that more difficult and not to mention making sure they were available for your big day.

    Well, after talking to numerous officiants, Mr. Vaughan aka Middle Tennessee Minister was the one for us. Trying to plan a wedding when your significant other is all the way across the country wasn’t hard enough, this part of the process was one of the easiest. Mr. Vaughan worked with us over teleconference when it worked for us. Met with us when and where it was convenient for us. Basically, he made us feel like we were his only priority.

    Mr. Vaughan also provides pre-marriage counseling, which we decided to do because you get a discount off your marriage license but it is more beneficial than just the discount, you get to know more about your future spouse through the trainings and lessons he provides.

    Lastly, the script, he provides you the script early and with the style you provide you want it to have and provide suggestions what you may want to have in it if you’re lost in what you want. We had the perfect script for us and everyone in attendance was moved by it. We liked Mr. Vaughan so much we also invited him to our reception afterwards, which he gracefully accepted. Thank you for everything, this whole process was PERFECT!!!

    Middle Tennessee Minister's reply:

    It was great getting to know you and Ricky and it was truly my pleasure to be a part of your big day. I have no doubt that you will have a wonderful marriage! Best wishes!
