We had a blast!
We didn’t really know what we wanted for our ceremony, just that we wanted it at the end of a dock and for our pup to make an appearance. That being said, I’m also kind of a perfectionist so Patrick had his work cut out for him. Planning the ceremony with Patrick was a blast, and we couldn’t have loved the final product more! Patrick is such an easy going guy and he took the time to learn our love story. He also incorporated our last minute changes seamlessly! Our ceremony was intimate, personal and so much fun! We would recommend Patrick 100%Sent on 01/03/2021

Perfectly Captured Our Day and Story
We hired Patrick after seeing him do such a great job for a friend of ours. The man does not disappoint! After spending some time with us and getting our story down, he crafted our ceremony into something that was beautiful and unique to us. He's a natural storyteller and showman, but takes his duties quite seriously, making sure the sacredness of the day and moment rings over all in attendance. We loved having him as our officiant and would discourage you from hiring anyone over him ... he's the best.Sent on 04/14/2021

Patrick was a fantastic presence and a consummate professional at my wedding in June. In our meetings leading up to the big day he took time to carefully listen to my wife and I’s journey from beginning to where we are now and in turn wrote such a wonderful homily that completely made the ceremony. He handled every part of the process with such genuine care and empathy that by the end of the whole experience I gained a life long friend. I will never forget my big day and how Patrick made the whole experience seamless and completely stress free. I will be forever grateful for his talents as an officiant and his endearing warmth as a friend.Sent on 07/05/2018
We worked with Patrick with Carmen & Brian all I can say Professional. Made the ceremony fun all while keeping it pro. I would recommend him to my clients for future services. Great job Patrick.
As a harpist, I watch a lot of people get married. Sometimes the officiants make or break the wedding. The first time I saw Patrick do a wedding, I knew he was born to do this. He's wonderful and caters to each couple. He is easy going but professional, and makes each wedding extremely touching without being sappy. If you are looking for an officiant, take it from someone who sees almost a wedding a week! He's your man!
