    Thanks, Phil!!!

    We specifically chose Phil as our officiant because he could perform the ceremony in both English and Portuguese. We were able to edit the ceremony "script" to our liking and were very pleased with Phil's services. Additionally, we had him play acoustic guitar before the ceremony, for the walk, and lasty for the close of the ceremony. The guests really loved that part, as we received many compliments. Communication was very easy, and the whole process went smoothly. Thanks, Phil!!!!

    Thanks Rev. Phil!

    Due to my Fiancee's visa, we had 30 days to get married.

    Everything was last minute and we were in serious doubt that we could pull it off! Our pastor was unavailable on such short notice so we did not have an officiant. Thankfully, one of my friends highly recommended Rev. Phil. From the very start, Rev. Phil gave us great confidence that we had found the right wedding officiant.

    His ceremony templates are extensive and varied enough that is easy to choose the perfect flow and content. We chose a Christian based ceremony but he can basically accommodate any type. He is also very flexible. In our rush, we waited until the very last day to send him final revisions and he seamlessly worked them into the ceremony. His communication was also great...he always responded in a timely manner and provided whatever help was required.

    The wedding itself went off without a hitch thanks in large part to Rev Phil's great officiating. He even wove in personal touches about our relationship he obtained from his questionnaire!

    My wife and I hope to only get married once in our lives but if we renew our wedding vows I'll be sure to contact Rev Phil! We also will not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family!

    Thank you Rev. Phil!

    Rev. Phil Passantino's reply:

    Thanks David & Roxanne! That was a real special day, you could feel it in the air. I was so happy to be part of your cool little wedding in that art gallery space in TriBeca. Your handwritten vows were very moving. (I actually almost teared up at Roxanne's at one point.) Hearing the story of your courtship reminded me how devoted and powerful love can be. I also loved your unique decorations and the hospitality of all your family and guests. God bless your love!
