Professional, accommodating, and responsive
Perry was great!! He was very flexible to arrange our consultation and then very responsive throughout the whole process. He tailored the ceremony to fit us and incorporate a perfect amount of religion into the ceremony. He was also a tremendous help during the Rehearsal Ceremony.Sent on 02/24/2020

Reverend Perry was absolutely wonderful and I am so happy we chose him to officiate our wedding. He is so personable, kind and let’s you actually be in charge of things for your ceremony. My (now) husband was behind us and reverend Perry even helped letting me know he was coming around the corner so I could hide behind my father (since we were married on a trail). I let him know ahead of time about our goofy kiss before our actual kiss and he let us enjoy that moment. Not once did I feel like I couldn’t change anything. To top it off we were supposed to get married Oct 31,2020 and since it was (now) going to be so small we moved it to Sept 26,2020 and Reverend Perry still was willing to officiate. I definitely recommend 10/10! Thank you Reverend Perry!Sent on 09/27/2020

The perfect officiant for our wedding!
Perry was the officiant at our (socially distanced) wedding and we absolutely loved him! He was very accommodating when we had to make changes to our wedding due to covid. More importantly, he was extremely helpful with the decisions we had to make about the ceremony itself. He provided a lot of different options, both religious and non-religious, allowing us to customize it to exactly what we wanted. On the day of the ceremony he arrived early which was comforting when there were so many other things to worry about that day. He was friendly with everyone there and he honestly felt like family. The ceremony was perfect. Highly recommended!Sent on 09/12/2020
Rev. Perry Hardison's reply:Thank you Brent. It was an honor to be part of your wedding. Thank you for allowing me to join in your celebration. I wish you both every happiness.
