    Highly Recommend

    Pastor Tom made it a point to get to know us in order to give our wedding a personal touch. He took the stress out of planning so that we could actually enjoy the ceremony and focus on our vows. Tom is a talented speaker and a very caring person- even taking the time to make sure that we filled out the marriage license properly! We highly recommend him!
