    Custom heartfelt ceremony

    Paul is an amazing officiant. From the moment my husband and I reached out to him he made us feel at ease. He walked us through every step of our big day and took so much stress off our plates. He provided so many special and personal touches. The energy he brought on the day of our wedding was amazing. He is the perfect person to solidify your loving partnership!

    Kind, Thoughtful, Flexible, and Genuine

    Paul is a very organized and thoughtful officiant who made the entire process from start to finish feel easy and fun. He took the time to get to know us and write a very genuine and meaningful ceremony that struck all the right cords.

    He helped organize and plan the sequence of events and walked us through how the ceremony would unfold. He was very flexible and accommodating throughout the whole process, especially since we were planning this in the middle of a pandemic and from across the country.

    His considerate and attentive attitude really helped ease any stress we had leading into the big day. His presence is calming and you can't help but smile when he is around! Would highly recommend Paul if you are looking for someone who legitimately cares about making your day magical and memorable.

    Paul helped make our special day run smoothly and hitchless :)

    Paul is a genuine caring person whom we felt as ease with from the get go. He helped facilitate an incredible, special day for my bride and I. Removed any worry that we had before the ceremony.
