Highly Recommend Reverend Ed
Reverend Ed was absolutely amazing! He helped us create the most beautiful ceremony that was individual to us. He assisted us throughout the entire process and promptly responded to all questions that we had. On the day of the wedding he eased all of our nerves and made sure that we knew everything that was going to happen. He did such a great job that our guests are still raving about how beautiful of a ceremony it was! We would highly recommend him to anyone getting married!Sent on 01/11/2020

If you're reading this review it probably means you've been on a search for the perfect officiant. That being said, stop your search and book Rev. Ed for your wedding!
Rev. Ed was the absolute best to work with. He could not have made the process any easier. He gave us clear, easy steps to follow and created a beautiful ceremony for us.
All our guests raved about the ceremony and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant.Sent on 01/10/2020

The absolute best
We cannot say enough about how wonderful Rev Ed is!
Rev Ed was the best to work with throughout the entire wedding planning experience. He laid everything out clearly from the beginning, gave simple step by step instructions and was very responsive and great to communicate with. He supplies all of the details needed not only for the ceremony but for any needed paperwork before and after the wedding.
He brought so much professionalism while being warm, inviting and making everything personal to us. We are still receiving compliments about how much everyone enjoyed the ceremony and how great Rev Ed was.
He is happy to create a ceremony that you are comfortable with no matter what you are looking for.
You really cannot go wrong by having Rev Ed officiate your wedding, we are so happy he was part of our day and it could not have been more perfect!

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!
