Pastor Josh was absolutely amazing in every way. We can鈥檛 thank him enough for the beautiful service he officiated for us.

We thought Pastor Josh was absolutely excellent in every way. He was so kind, encouraging and thoughtful. Many of our guests told us that it was a beautiful ceremony and overwhelmingly it was enjoyed by everyone we spoke to. Some guests even said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Pastor Josh made us feel very relaxed during the ceremony and we both agreed that it was such a wonderful experience. He also encouraged us to write personal vows. In the beginning we were reserved about doing that but now we are both so delighted that we did. Also we added some activities to the service that were important to us and Josh was very open to us to bringing our own cultural traditions and music as part of the service. He was also really flexible with last minute changes that we wanted to make. Several guests were able to get the opportunity to talk to Pastor Josh after the ceremony and they also had lovely things to say about him. Overall, we would highly recommend Pastor Josh for your wedding ceremony.

Bringing the Magic!

Pastor Joshua really brought the magic to our wedding ceremony. He took the time to ensure our ceremony was personal and special. We incorporated a memorial lighting in honor of family, who couldn鈥檛 be with us at the wedding, and he delivered this memorial beautifully.
He is very detail oriented, has a welcoming personality, and has the ability to make a wedding ceremony unique.
Not only was he amazing to the bride and groom, he treated family and guests with the upmost kindness. Others couldn鈥檛 stop complementing him!
What we really loved about Pastor Joshua is that he told us that beyond the wedding, he will be there for us (bride and groom) if we needed anything. Meaning, spiritual, or religious guidance he would be there to offer support for us. It really goes to show how much his job means to him, and that he really enjoys uniting people together in marriage, under God.

It was the most memorable experience

It was an amazing experience for a special day. Because of my social anxiety, he definitely helped a lot with that made me feel comfortable speaking by repeating after him.
