Anthony was excellent!
We hired Anthony last minute and he was very accommodating; met with us before the ceremony, offered several recommendations on venues, gave us step by step instructions on what to do prior to the ceremony, and gladly agreed to a very last minute venue change. Anthony was pleasant, he had the vows memorized (we chose to use vows of his as they were A+) and made no mistakes, and our guests thought he was great as well. We are very pleased with The Wedding Judge as our minister/officiant and recommend him highly!Sent on 03/06/2020

Easy and Professional
I found Anthony on Wedding Wire when we were looking for our officiant. Working with him was simple and easy. We communicated briefly via wedding wire, had a phone call to answer any questions, I used venmo to send him my deposit and he responded with an email full of information for me to go over and return to him for the big day! I really appreciated how clear his communications were - get him the right information in the right time frame and he'll be easy and simple to work with.He has a few different templates of ceremonies that you can pick from that he's willing to edit with you, ranging from religious to not so religious. We wrote our own vows and he incorporated that into the ceremony template we chose to use. (He will also write a ceremony from scratch with you if you chose to) He knows his template very well so his delivery on our special day was clear and well presented. I can't say I heard him mess up or fumble his words. He was on time, he filed our license properly, and I didn't have any issues communicating with him up to the big day. He was also willing to announce an unplugged ceremony message as well as how to proceed into cocktail hour.Sent on 11/30/2019

Anthony sent us everything we needed to prepare for our wedding and rehearsal. He was very clear about everything we needed to do before getting married i.e. marriage license, ceremony instructions, vows, readings etc. He was very professional, well-spoken, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Book him if you get the chance.Sent on 09/14/2019
The Wedding Judge is wonderful! Three cheers for Oregon Weddings.. :)
Anthony was kind and he seemed like he had a gentle soul. Exactly whom a bride and groom need to perform their wedding.
Anthony was the officiant for our wedding ceremony, and we are both so happy to have had him! He listened carefully to what we wanted and gave us so many beautiful options and ways to design our ceremony. In the end, we decided a short and simple ceremony was "us" and he added enough fluidity to the ceremony to make it perfectly beautiful. I will be highly recommending him to all my brides as the best officiant in Oregon.
