Amazing! Very happy
Rev. Ed was such a pleasure to work with. He performed our micro wedding ceremony and will also be doing our vow renewal ceremony next year when we have our big wedding. He’s been amazing to work with from the start. He did an excellent job! He made us feel super comfortable and overall is just very easy to talk to. The ceremony was great! It went very smooth and was the perfect length. We couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait until next year!Sent on 10/14/2020

Rev. Ed is the best officiant!
When choosing our officiant, we had no idea where to start. Our venue recommended Rev. Ed to us and from the moment we reached out to him, we knew that he was the perfect fit. He is warm, friendly, professional, yet not rigid. He walked us through each step of the process from the marriage license all the way through the marriage certificate. He was so knowledgeable about the process and that made it so easy for us.Sent on 01/08/2021
His ceremony creation process is so organized and he provided us with tons of samples for us to be able to choose from to create the perfect ceremony for us. We highly recommend Rev. Ed for your wedding. Trust us...You will NOT be disappointed!

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!
Reverend Ed is well spoken, down to earth, and professional. A pleasure to work with!
