About Paul Pakusch, Wedding Officiant

Paul's philosophy is that a couple should have the wedding ceremony of their dreams. He believes it is their day and that they should start their marriage by celebrating it in the way that symbolizes the love that they have for each other. His job is to perform the ceremony of their wishes, without any prejudice as to what paths in life brought them to this occasion. Commitment Ceremonies and Vow Renewals are also available.

    Beautiful ceremony!

    Paul did a great job officiating our wedding ceremony! My husband and I decided to elope (at 8AM!) and Paul was very accommodating and helpful. It was a really sweet and meaningful ceremony and we thought it was very special.

    Rebecca, it was a very cold morning but the setting at Letchworth Park was stunning! We certainly had a "few" people watching from the sidelines. Enjoy many years of happiness together!

    Best Officiant out there!

    Paul was great to work with! He helped us come up with a ceremony that fit us perfectly. We were able to have several meetings and he was willing to be flexible throughout this whole COVID wedding time frame. He was also SO much fun we welcomed him to stay and hang out during the reception too. We would definitely recommend you choose Paul!
