We are two professional, well spoken individuals who became ordained because we both enjoy being a part of a couple's special day. Since 2007, Rev Ed has been creating and performing wedding ceremonies for couples in the tri-state and surrounding areas (including Virginia). Rev. Patrick has been performing ceremonies since 2015 and has quickly earned the title, "5-Star Officiant."
We are well educated and have earned Master's Degrees in the education field. We are both currently elementary school administrators and have much experience with speaking in front of large audiences. We have been commended for our abilities in public speaking and have been told that we have wonderful speaking voices. We both enjoy writing and are articulate writers and enjoy creating ceremonies after getting to know each couple and all of their wonderful qualities.
We were both born and raised in NJ and continue to reside in the state. We are family men who understand the importance of being surrounded by those you love most, which is why your wedding day is so special. It is the one day when all of your closest friends and relatives are together in one place celebrating you and your love for one another. This is why your ceremony is so important. You want to be sure you have the best, most articulate officiant you can find. Please feel free to reach out so we can discuss exactly what you envision for your PERFECT ceremony!

Rev. Ed was awesome!
Even though my husband and I were both raised in the church, we decided that we wanted a non-religious wedding ceremony. We spoke with a few different officiants and Reverend Ed was by far the friendliest and most responsive.Sent on 11/04/2018
The wedding-planning process was very stressful, and I was grateful that this part of the planning process (the most important part) was so easy! Ed was very flexible and provided us with tons of suggestions that we used to design our own personalized ceremony. One suggestion he made was that we have an "unplugged ceremony" so that our guests' phones wouldn't be eyesores in our professional photos, and we're so glad that we took this suggestion! Our guests were truly present in the moment and we are grateful that our ceremony was able to remain intimate, rather than having it live on the internet for strangers to see.
On the day of our wedding, Rev. Ed felt like part of our family and our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Many of our guests remarked on how personalized it was to both me and my husband and many others assumed that he was a friend or family member. We are so pleased with the services that Rev. Ed provided and highly recommend them to everyone!

We couldn't have gotten any luckier with finding Reverend Ed Abato!
Throughout the wedding planning process, Reverend Ed Abato was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, patient and willing to offer recommendations. His responses to my questions were timely and he worked with me every step of the way to make this process as seamless as possible.Sent on 01/03/2019
On the day of the wedding, he made sure that everyone was at ease and that everyone felt comfortable with all of the exciting things that were about to happen. His delivery of the ceremony was beautiful as he captured our love perfectly in the most important part of the wedding. Our guests during the cocktail hour couldn't stop raving about how great Reveren Ed Abato did!
I would highly recommend Reverend Ed Abato for your wedding ceremony as he is a master of his craft.

Helpful, genuine, lovely
Rev. Patrick was a joy to work with and performed a beautiful ceremony. He walked us through every step of the process and he was incredibly flexible and selfless with his time on our holiday wedding. Book him today if you want your wedding day to be extraordinarily special.Sent on 01/23/2019

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!
