    Our ceremony was perfect!

    Going with Father Shaun for our wedding was the best decision we made. Our ceremony was beautiful and well organized. He also considered our wants and needs for the ceremony and made it perfect for us. He also helped so much getting a Marriage license in NJ and walked us through it. Working with him for our wedding day was great and made our wedding day perfect!!!

    AMAZING!!! so thankful for Father Shaun

    What can I say! Father Shaun puts more than time and effort; he dedicates! I was so happy to find a priest that could marry us after so many failed attempts due to Covid. Father Shaun made the preparation and planning seamless and smooth. Most importantly, he put love and faith into the beginning of this new chapter of our lives! Thank you !!!!

    Amazing priest for our small, outdoor wedding

    Father Shaun was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding. Despite the short notice and difficulties from covid-19, he helped us have the wedding of our dreams. He was very responsive and helpful. Our pre-wedding counseling was not only helpful but actually enjoyable. We loved how he individualized our ceremony for us, while still keeping the traditional Catholic wedding feel that we were looking for. We would absolutely recommended Father Shaun!
