Warm and Professional
Tom was literally everything that we needed and wanted from an officiant. Everything about the ceremony was effortless and easy. The process was easy and he thought of everything and he let my husband and I feel completely at ease and comfortable when we were standing in front of everyone. I can't thank him enough. I wouldn't recommend anyone other than him.Sent on 05/26/2020
