    Fantastic!!

    Perry officiated our wedding almost two weeks ago and he was fantastic! We had a zoom call with him to meet him and after the call, my now husband immediately said that he liked him. He made the entire ceremony so comfortable. We even got compliments about him from the rest of our bridal party and multiple guests. We would recommend him to everyone! Thank you, Perry, for making our day so special!

    Rev. Perry Hardison's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words Barbara! I had a great time. I wish you both every happiness.

    One of a kind!!!

    My husband and I can not say enough about Rev. Perry. He listened to exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be and he created exactly that. He made us feel so at ease during the entire process and truly fit right in with our crowd. Rev. Perry gave us the right mixture of personal and religious for the ceremony and even made sure his blessings at both the rehearsal dinner and reception were personal. We are so thankful and blessed to have found Rev. Perry and to have him as such a big part of our day!!!

    Rev. Perry Hardison's reply:

    Thank you so much Kelly. I had a great time. If you ever need anything, please let me know! I wish you both every happiness.

If we had a magic wand and could create the perfect officiant, the end result would be Rev. Perry. We have had the honor of working with him for many years and through a variety of couples. No matter the style or religious preference, Perry works closely with each couple to tailor the ceremony. He is funny. Knows the perfect one liners to interject to get the bridal party's attention. He is punctual. Always early, prepared and professional. He's personable. He has a warm and inviting personality. We adore working with Rev. Perry and recommend him to all of our couples!
