Fig Street Weddings was so professional and friendly. He even helped me find a venue when we eloped in New Orleans and I live in Pennsylvania and have never been in Louisiana. The day of our wedding, the weather called for storms and he changed the time to make it before the rain. Great experience and I would completely recommend!

I've used Jerry to officiate weddings for my clients for almost 20 years. He always does a fantastic job, is professional and puts everyone at ease.

I highly recommended Rev. Schwehm as a Top Experienced Officiant. He is the "Best" in his profession!

Jerry is not only an excellent officiant who will make your ceremony memorable and personal, but he is a great source of information about the city of New Orleans and has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. I highly recommend him, whether for a large affair, or an intimate elopement in one of the city's lovely parks or historic sites.
