Warm and professional

Pastor Scott is amazing - from the get-to-know you interview to the wedding day, he was warm, professional and so helpful. He gave us ideas for the overall ceremony program, as well as options for pledges, readings and vows. He took the time to get to know us and wove our story throughout the ceremony, making the experience so personal and special. We highly recommend Pastor Scott.

Scott is the BEST!

We were referred to Scott by our wedding coordinator. I told her I wanted someone professional, friendly, responsive and FUNNY!
I wanted someone who wouldn’t be too serious during the ceremony and someone who would throw in a few jokes here and there. The minute I spoke with Scott, I knew he was the right person to marry us. He was very responsive to all of my emails and really tried to get to know us on a personal level. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect because of Scott. Even our guests commented on how great he was!
If you are looking for an officiant, look no further!
Thank you, Scott!

Heartfelt and Personal

Pastor Kirk did an amazing job officiating my daughter’s wedding this summer. We came from out of town and did not have a personal pastor in the area. We found pastor Kirk online, watched a few of his ceremonies, spoke with him over the phone and knew he was the perfect minister for our special day. His warm and friendly style makes you feel like he’s been your pastor from childhood and a family friend. We could not have asked for a better officiant! Five stars!
