    Beautiful Ceremony!

    Rev. Ed was an amazing addition to our wedding. He is very friendly and personable throughout the planning process. The templates and ceremony outline that he provides were wonderful and well rounded. We found Rev. Ed very easy and comfortable to work with as we planned this very special part of our ceremony. Rev. Ed's tone and presentation was very professional and we received many compliments on his ceremony presentation. Highly recommend hiring Rev. Ed!

    Perona Farms wedding 10/28/22

    Patrick officiated our wedding at Perona Farms and was incredible! So many of our guests came up to us after our ceremony saying how great he was. Both Patrick and Ed were super helpful and responsive throughout our planning process, and they kept things very easy for us. They take care of a lot and make it stress free, and really do an amazing job. I could not recommend their services enough!

    Reverend Ed Abato's reply:

    Kirsten, thank you so much! I enjoyed performing your ceremony and working with you both! Wishing you both a long happy life together!

    the best decision we made for our wedding day!

    working with rev. ed & rev. patrick was the best decision we made for our wedding day. it was an absolute pleasure working with rev. patrick. i am in awe of how smooth & beautiful our ceremony turned out to be. it was the most important part of the day and rev. patrick was the person to bring all of that to life. he was responsive, attentive, listened to our vision and what was important to us as a couple - he brought all of that into our day and made us feel seen. he was responsive and helped guide us through this entire process. laying out everything we needed to do to apply for our marriage license, certificate, etc. he made everything seamless. he was the reason for our beautiful ceremony and we cannot thank them both enough.

    Reverend Ed Abato's reply:

    Thank you so much Caitlyn! It was my pleasure performing your ceremony and wish you guys all the best!

I had the pleasure of working with Reverend Ed this past weekend. He was awesome. Down to earth, very easy to communicate with and has a booming voice that your guests will have no trouble hearing without the aid of a microphone! Can't wait to work with reverend Ed again in the future!

Ed was fantastic as a minister for a recent wedding we did for Amanda & Craig at the Inn at Millrace Pond. It was an extremely hot day outside, which the ceremony was outdoors. Despite the conditions, Ed arrived on time, came prepared fully dressed in his formal attire, and went over the details with me (Chris the DJ) without complaints or difficulty. I quickly showed him how to work the microphone. What stood out the most about Ed is that he went above and beyond to take the microphone and reposition it during the bride & groom's vows. We were on point the entire ceremony and commend all his efforts in working smoothly with us!
