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!Sent on 08/29/2018
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!!

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

Great to work with!!
Rev Perry was so amazing to work with!! He was a referral from a friend that raves about him and I understand why. He is such a sweet and kind man and it shows. We were very nervous about messing up during the ceremony! During the rehearsal there was so many tears and laughter. He made us feel so comfortable and at peace!! Thank you so much for making our day so special.Sent on 05/10/2019
