Caring & Experienced!
I relocated to Greenville awhile back and had yet to establish a home church, which put me in a quandary when I was ready to get married. For my Spring 2019, I wanted to find not just an officiant e.g. notary, but someone that would bring a spiritual aspect to our wedding ceremony. A marriage ceremony is a celebration, but at the same time it's a solemn occasion, not to be taken lightly. My husband and I met with Reverend Sullivan and his wife after I reached out via Wedding Wire. Afterwards, we decided that we wanted him to officiate our ceremony and his wife to be our ceremony coordinator. They both were helpful in providing insight to past weddings they'd been a part of at our venue, Pretty Place Chapel. They braved some seriously stormy weather the afternoon of our wedding to climb the mountain to Pretty Place. Throughout the process Reverend Sullivan was very responsive and quick to provide information to any questions I sent his way. The ceremony was beautiful and although I sent him information related to the ceremony last minute, like hours before the ceremony, it all flowed so beautifully. We will forever be thankful for him and his wife, Cecilia, being a part of our ceremony.Sent on 05/08/2019

We can't thank John and Cecilia enough for everything they both did to make our wedding day so special. John was the absolute best officiant! Everything went so smoothly and he did a fantastic job! We appreciate all of the time that was put into listening to what we wanted and crafting a great ceremony! Also, we are so happy that we went through the SYMBIS program with John and Cecilia. We feel like that program with the both of them really helped prepare us for marriage. We loved their insight and ideas. We couldn't recommend 2 Become 1 Heart Enough!Sent on 05/17/2019
