    Tom was absolutely perfect! We only met him the day before our wedding for rehearsal, but he was so friendly and helpful, it was like we’ve known him forever! And before meeting, he was always on the ball with communication, making sure we had everything that we needed, so we had nothing to worry about on the day of the ceremony. He made our day completely stress-free! All of our guests just raved about him! He was uplifting and smiling through the entire ceremony and there was never a dull moment. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a wedding pastor! We couldn’t have asked for any better :) Thanks for making our ceremony so perfect Tom! - Matt and Aly

    very special day

    Mr. Hamel was a true professional and just a wonderful man all around. He was almost instant with his email responses, he was punctual for the ceremony, and more than anything he added such a personal touch to the service as if he knew us for a life time. My family could not stop commenting on him and kept asking how I found him. What a treasure to have this man officiate for us. I can not thank him enough.
