    What an amazing experience! Our wedding would not have been the same without Reverend Lovejoy! We live in Austin but were married on 10-8 in Vermont on the family farm (my husbands). When scouting for an officiant, I researched and spoke with many as I am not from the area, but I wanted the person to really "get us", and understand our lighthearted vibe. Also, admittedly I did't want to cry my face off. I am a bit of a sap. Just as we almost nailed down the person we had settled on... magically I stumbled across Reverend Larry Lovejoy through a search on The Knot. I immediately loved his profile, he was refreshing and fun... so naturally I reached out. After speaking with him (my fiancé now husband too), we knew he was perfect. Weddings are such an emotional time, and we wanted someone who could find a balance between humor and sincerity. Larry was both! He took the limited time we gave him via email + a few calls... and really got to know us, and spoke so well to the nature of who we are. It was touching. Also, he handled our somewhat unruly groomsmen at the rehearsal after a brewery trip (palm to forehead). That takes a lot, he handled them with poise and humor. The crowd of guest at the wedding loved him and instead of rolling tears there was rolling laughter during the entire ceremony. It was lovely and perfect. I couldn't of asked for a better experience. I definitely recommend Larry, hands down. He knows what he is doing! + He's such a sincere and genuine soul!

    Great experience with Gary

    Gary was great. We were considering booking him and then our overall plans went a different direction but throughout the entire process Gary was responsive and very easy to talk with. He was willing to customize to our liking and it was just a good experience and not stressful at all. So much so that I decided to write this review even though we did not get to use him for our ceremony. Would highly recommend. JD
