    The absolute best!

    We had the opportunity to work with Perry for our wedding on a recommendation from our venue and he was such a delight. We had a planning meeting where we were able to explore the different ceremony options that we might be interested in and Perry was very patient and adaptable with us and easily able to translate our ideas into an elegant and flowing ceremony structure. At our rehearsal and on our wedding day he gave off the most comforting and calming vibes, ensuring that we weren’t too nervous and that he was there to guide us through our vows every step of the way. His experience showed not only to us but to our guests as well as they were very complementary of his delivery throughout and enjoyed getting to meet and spend time with him outside of the ceremony. He made our process so simple and smooth that we would highly recommend him to other couples in search of an officiant in the future!

    Rev. Perry Hardison's reply:

    Thank you Jess for taking the time to write the review and thank you so much for the kind words. It was my honor & pleasure to be part of your big day, i wish you every happiness my friends.

    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.

    Rev. Perry Hardison's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review Adam. I had a great time celebrating with you and Tess. Every happiness to you my friends. May you have a long, happy, fulfilling life together.

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!
