Amazing experience!

We found Pastor Lawrence on Wedding Wire and decided to book him because of his stellar reviews and he did not disappoint. He was professional, very friendly, and full of positive energy and charisma. We met with him for premarital counseling and he gave us great words of wisdom, scriptures to reflect on, and tools that we will use forever. On our wedding day, he was on time (early actually) and his sermon for our ceremony was lively, interactive, and to the point. He helped us incorporate ideas that were unique and true to us as a couple and gave great instruction to our guests on how to participate. Our guests raved about our ceremony. We debated on getting a friend to officiate our wedding to save money and we are so happy we decided to go with Pastor Lawrence. He provided such an amazing experience for an affordable price. Do not hesitate to book him!! You will not be disappointed!

A great pleasure!

Pastor Demetrius was a great pleasure to work with! Pre-marital counseling sessions with him were a blessing, as his guidance to prepare to be committed partners is something we can never repay. Our family and friends enjoyed his energy and the way he included everyone in the ceremony. Absolutely grateful we have him from then and forward to consult as we navigate this new journey. We highly recommend him!

Perfect For Us

Pastor Demetrius,
Performed our wedding ceremony in Central Park in June. We knew we wanted a pastor to help start our marriage off with the blessing and word of God. Pastor Demetrius spoke to us prior to ceremony and let us know our relationship was safe in his hand and offered to be there should we need spiritual guidance along the way. He did great at making us comfortable on our special day.
