Our very first phone call with Pastor Steve, I knew he was the one I wanted to marry us. He was witty and funny and understanding. When we met him in person he just sat and talked with us like we had know each other for years. Unfortunately 2 days before our wedding he had a family emergency and wasn't able to do the ceremony. That is when Pastor Laura stepped in and was right there with us for the rehearsal and ceremony. She was top notch and again it felt like we were old friends.Sent on 07/30/2018

The Funnest Officiant Around (Non-religious)
Pastor Steve gave us fun, friendship, and a little bit of funk. He brought such humor and love and joy to our wedding, with beautiful, playful vows and his warm laughter. He walked us through our rehearsal ceremony (as we had no idea what we were doing), even giving us tips on when and how to walk to give our photographer the best shots. With his wit, he charmed all of our guests and gave us (the bride and groom) the freedom to be ourselves in front of our friends and family. Above all, Pastor Steve's positivity and down-to-earth personality made our wedding day more perfect than we ever thought possible. You can sit down and share a beer with the man, have a real conversation, and feel like you've been friends for ages. If you want hope, happiness, and humor with some hippie-coolness sprinkled on top for your special day, Pastor Steve is the soul you need presiding over and blessing your marriage.Sent on 11/05/2018

Steve was AMAZING!!! He is soo easy to work with, his prices are extemely reasonable for how much work and effort he puts into making your wedding day so special. We loved working with him and our guests enjoyed his ceremony and just having his presence there. He is a wonderful person with a big heart that really knows how to read his couples and what they are looking for in their wedding day. We cant thank steve enough for everything he did for us!!! :-)Sent on 09/18/2018

My new husband and I were very nervous about finding an officiant for our wedding. We wanted someone funny, charming, professional and above all a nice person. We originally found Steve and we talked with him and when we hung up we were beyond happy cause we finally found our person. Due to many unfortunate events, Steve called (many months notice) and said he wouldn't be able to do it. We were crushed but just hoped everything was okay with him. He asked if we would be okay with Laura instead. We said of course and anxiously waited for her to call...what if we don't like her...if she doesn't like us? What if she doesn't get our dry, odd humor? What if she says no to a personalized ceremony? After the call I cried. She was beyond amazing. summing up, Laura came to our wedding, she was everything we could've wished for and more. Funny, charming, professional and so sweet and friendly. Not many people would be willing to stand out in cold rain for two people like she did AND she delivered a beautiful personalized ceremony without missing a single beat. Her personality livened up the whole wedding rain or no rain. We can not thank her enough for what shes done for us. So....if you're wondering if you should hire Alpha & Omega Ministries, the answer is undoubtedly YES. Thank you Laura and Steve!Sent on 09/11/2018

We loved working with Pastor Steve. He is super accommodating and made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole journey of our wedding planning and especially during our ceremony. He responded quickly to our emails and was very professional. His value far exceeds the price we hired him for. Would definitely recommend him to others. Thanks for making our wedding run so smoothly, Pastor Steve! Couldn't imagine it going any better!Sent on 08/12/2018

On July 14, 2018 my fiancé and I were married by Pastor Steve in the backyard of our home. He offered us a couple of ceremonies to review and we picked the best one for us. He was very professional, timely and informative. So many of our family and friends came up to us during the reception to express how much they loved his ceremony and to express how impressed they were by him. He made everything very easy for us and that was greatly appreciated since we were dealing with so many last-minute details. We would highly recommend Pastor Steve, he’s the best.
Thank you Pastor Steve for doing such a fantastic job! We wish you would have had more time to stay for the reception.
Thanks again – Bob & DeAnne

We loved having you their you were very flexible and calm when the extra mile for us when we were running late and had no way to call you to to our part. You were able to make it your own and be very calming to us. In a serious situation you got to calm us women and the men even got us to luaph and calmed us. We all agreed you are one of a kind and we couldn't see any one done better than you:)Sent on 06/24/2018

Pastor Steve was absolutely wonderful! He was so accommodating to our wishes for the ceremony with our son and the butterfly release. It was also very comforting knowing that a fellow verteran married my husband and I. He also educated me on a few of my grandfather’s old Army patches which was amazing! We couldn’t have asked for anything more!Sent on 09/30/2017

I don't typically write reviews for anything, but I felt like I needed to write one for Steve. Steve officiated my wife and my wedding, and his professionalism throughout the process made our special day so much better. Before the actual wedding date, he made himself available to us 24/7 and answered any questions or concerns that we had during the weeks leading up to our wedding.Sent on 08/02/2017
Steve is not like a lot of other pastors or reverends. His ceremony did not feel rehearsed (in a bad way...like 'acting) or fake. All of the words he spoke were from the heart, sincere and real. He was accommodating to our special requests like stopping in the middle of his speaking for a song or poem, His prices were reasonable compared to the other pastors we talked to, and I think he gives you more bang for your buck meaning you're paying less and getting more.
If you hire Steve, you're getting high quality for a low price. You're getting someone who is always available by email, text and phone and officiates how you want him to but also offers suggestions (that we did use) to make the ceremony better. His ceremony was custom tailored to our needs and his professionalism throughout the process eased our nerves in the days leading up to the wedding.
If you hire Steve, you're going to have great memories of your wedding ceremony. I hope this review helps with your decision. God bless!

My husband & I had an elopement ceremony & Pastor Steve was able to help us create the perfect ceremony for us.
His attention to detail was great & he was very easy to talk to and get in contact with regarding our ceremony.
I’d definitely recommend Pastor Steve for your wedding!

Pastor Steve officiated our wedding in October, 2017. He was super easy to work with and was open to anything we wanted to do. We wanted something fun and lighthearted and he was able to make it just that. Very easygoing and caring!! Thank you, Steve!Sent on 10/23/2017
