We originally planned on having a friend officiate our wedding to make it more personal, and when he bailed on us we were worried we wouldn't find someone to replace him that wouldn't ruin our budget. Perry was the most reasonably priced person we could find and exceeded all our expectations. He gave us plenty of suggestions for our ceremony and helped make it personal and true to us as a couple. He also was so personable and led our ceremony rehearsal with ease. He was so professional throughout and was responsive to our questions and punctual to every event. You won't regret having him as your officiant whether you want a religious or non-religious ceremony!Sent on 09/06/2019

We were very happy with Perry as our Officiant! We also did 4 hours of marriage counseling with him. He is very personable and easy to talk to and although we did not choose to get married in a church, we did want to do some counseling prior to our marriage. For the ceremony, Perry had a ton of ideas and options to get us started crafting our unique ceremony. It was a very easy experience and we would definitely recommend Perry!Sent on 06/11/2019
