Your wedding should be what you want it to be. I have 40 years experience as an ordained Baptist minister and college professor of comparative religion. It has been my honor to officiate 100s of weddings of all types: religious, secular, mixed faith, traditional, brief, contemporary, alternative, etc. I can help you develop a customized ceremony that fits your dreams and personalities.
I cooperate fully with your other vendors so that they can fully use their skills to provide you with the wedding you have requested. My goal is to bring the occasion all the dignity it deserves as the biggest day of your life while using humor to keep everyone relaxed and make it the biggest celebration of your life.

Perry was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. He was SO easy to work with. He gave us script ahead of time to sort out and make any edits that we wanted to. It was nice to be prepared ahead of time!
He was extremely responsive anytime I had a question for him, and even since we got married and I needed him for something he was right there to help!
I had many people comment afterwards about how wonderful the ceremony was, not too long ;) but to the point and also full of emotion. Thank you Perry!!

Perry was able to help my groom and I put into words what we could not. His ceremony was beautiful and meaningful. I had "the random guests" (like my parent's co-workers) coming up to me afterwards telling me it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever been to. Perry makes the process very easy, he sends a script over where you can pick and choose what passages are best. Some passages are more religious than others, it is all up to the couple for what is best for them. Our day was made even more special thanks to Perry and his words.

Perry was wonderful and we are so happy we chose him to officiate our wedding! We were planning our wedding from out of state so we had an initial phone call with Perry and hired him right after. Closer to the wedding we were able to schedule a time to meet and Perry was very accommodating. He was very kind and personable and answered all the questions we had. Perry provided us with ideas for the ceremony outline, readings, and vows in which we were able to make any changes we wanted and add in our personal touches. Perry even attended our rehearsal the day before the wedding to run through everything with us (practicing our vows, what to do if someone drops a ring or it doesn't go on the finger all the way, etc). We had several compliments on how great Perry was after our wedding ceremony and would highly recommend him!
We have worked with Rev Perry Hardison on many many occasions and we HIGHLY recommend him. He's the best of the BEST!!
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!
Perry Hardison is one of our favorite ministers to work with. He has done hundreds of weddings, including my daughter Sara's. He puts his couple at ease, creates a wedding ceremony that is perfect and one of a kind for the couple and makes sure everything runs smoothly. We highly recommend Perry, as he is so wonderful to work with and does such an amazing job for the Bride and Groom.
