Wedding wire hooks me up with this Reverend who was actually my old professor

Reverend Claus is so personable, he made everyone laugh, feel at ease, and didn't drag on the ceremony process. Couldn't have been better!!! Was also there checking on us every step of the way and helped do the paperwork
