Saved the Day!
When we heard that the County had stopped preforming ceremonies due to the Corona virus (March 19, 2020) we looked up officials that could marry us and found Pastor Pat Avery. When I sent a request he responded quickly and was able to preform our ceremony the next day March 20, 2020. Thank you Pastor Pat for preforming our ceremony and saving the day.Sent on 03/20/2020

Great Experience, Very Professional
Pastor Pat had it all covered! Knowledgable, professional, he even put the marriage license in the mail! He took the time to go out to eat with us and explained all our options for the ceremony and his part in it.Sent on 03/12/2020
The best part though, is once we booked him, the "officiant" parts of the wedding were just done, we didn't have to worry about anything regarding that part of ceremony. He took care of it all. During the planning, having that kind of help is invaluable.
Thanks for everything Pat.

We highly recommend Pat.
Thanks so much Pat for making our day so special! He made planning and officiating our wedding worry and hassle-free. He listened to all of our wants and performed our ceremony exactly how we wanted it. He really went out of his way to make us and our guests comfortable. He was punctual. He took the time to get to know us during the planning sessions. His number one concern is your happiness and that's what really tied it all together. I can't express our gratitude enough for making our day so memorable.Sent on 12/09/2019
