We found Philip Box's name online. We weren't sure how we felt about finding an officiant this way but were marrying out of town and didn't have a clue where to start. He began connection with us over the phone months and months before the event. He remained in touch and accessible to the both of us throughout and even after. Philip thoughtfully reviewed every part of our service with us personally and was so great during the rehearsal. He brought so much laughter and love to our family and friends throughout the rehearsal dinner and the service. He drove for hours to be with us and I have no doubt that he was the exact person to be with us that day. A true gift. Thank you Philip!!Sent on 05/15/2017

Mr. Philip Box is very professional and polite!Sent on 10/27/2016
We thought that we had a church and preacher picked out, since we do not attend church regularly... However, our living arrangements changed the preacher's mind, after having our paperwork for over a month. I frantically searched wedding wire for a new vendor/church and preacher. It turns out, Mr. Box also married my stepbrother and his wife. Fortunately both he and his church were available on our chosen day!!
I was so thankful to find him and truly enjoyed working with him!
Philip Box's reply:Thanks!
Phillip has an excellent reputation. I have never heard anything but sterling reviews of his services. You will be happy if you have the opportunity to work with him. He is trustworthy and professional!
You cannot go wrong with Philip Box, unless you happen to want personality-free:) Having done approximately 100 weddings, there are only a few officiants that I remember for more than a day or two. He's charismatic and real, witty while still being reverent. I liked him even before he said I was too young to have grandchildren (and actually meant it!) Save a piece of cake for Philip Box!
One thing is absolute. Regardless of where your ceremony takes place, a church, the beach, an island in the sun... the ceremony itself is an incredible culmination of your emotions, time, anticipation and energy. The service is in itself a memory of endless value. When you find an officiant with a passion for life and filled with joy for your new beginning together.. it is truly a blessing!
