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.

By Far the best vendor at our wedding

Rev Russ is the best officiant we spoke to during our planning process. He was worth every single dollar and more. My husband and I were so open to how our ceremony would look, especially because we are very non-traditional, so all we asked of Russ was for a heartwarming and intimate ceremony. He helped us through the process, spoke with us as many times as we needed, and made sure to take all our needs and questions into account when crafting our ceremony. And when I tell you Russ made the perfect ceremony for us, I really mean it. I’m not one to get emotional, but I cried (and bonus points because he had a tissue on hand). He presented our personal love story in a way that really spoke to the heart of our relationship and made our guests feel that love with us. He really heard our requests and delivered beyond our wildest dreams… If you are looking for the best officiant possible for your wedding, you NEED to book Rev Russ, you will be glad you did!

One of a Kind

Russ was the best choice we made for our ceremony! He did an awesome job at crafting our "love story". It was so special to hear, and I can tell that he took time and care to make sure the ceremony reflected "us". After the ceremony, many guests asked us how we knew him, they were shocked we only met him when we chose him as our officiant! We would highly recommend Rev Russ as your officiant as he will be sure to make your ceremony unforgettable.
