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!
