Meaning, sacred, and fun

My husband and I believe that we were drawn together by love and our meeting and falling in love was no mere coincidence. We wanted our wedding ceremony to reflect our love for each other and to celebrate the magical journey that brought us together.

We wanted our special day to be uniquely ours and to set the stage for our future life together as husband and wife. Because of this, we wanted to find the perfect wedding officiant. We searched, we interviewed, and eventually we found Rev. Russ. Our patience paid off.

Like so many things in our relationship, we feel like we were ultimately drawn to Rev. Russ. The first thing we noticed was that he was truly interested in us! He didn’t start pitching his services… He listened and the conversation flowed effortlessly and made our decision easy… We hired Rev. Russ to officiate our wedding.

Ultimately, we feel that hiring Rev. Russ was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Our ceremony was unforgettable. Nobody talks about our venue, our DJ, or our food… But they share with us is how much they loved our ceremony. The reason for that is simple… Rev. Russ was awesome.

Thanks Russ! Thanks for being a part of our ongoing love story and making our wedding ceremony the highlight of our day and a cherished forever memory.
