Anthony is an authentic, compassionate and professional man. One of his callings is clearly and truly officiating the union of two lives. He had great command of the ceremony meanwhile making it exquisitely personalized and intimate. He was gracious, friendly and complimentary to myself, my spouse and our guests. He is a comforting leader that will make your wedding day special. We plan on reaching out to him when we renew our vows someday.

Anthony is everything you want in an officiant! Do not hesitate. Before, during and after the process he is there for you!

Best Ordainer in Sedona!
Anthony was an absolute joy to work with! From the very beginning he was extremely helpful in creating and planning a wedding ceremony that was unique to us personally, and the space in which we held our ceremony. We only met once before the actual wedding day, but we felt as though we had known Anthony for many years. He is incredibly kind, and made our day extra special!

Anthony made our day even more special
We had somewhat unconventional wedding requests for Anthony, and he totally just rolled with everything we threw at him. He was extremely professional, thoughtful, genuine, and kind. My husband and I both thought, "Wow, this guy truly loves what he does." We enjoyed him so much we hope to get a glass of wine with him the next time we're in Sedona. Plus, his South African accent is pretty amazing. 100% recommend to a friend. Thanks, Anthony!

Our perfect ceremony
Anthony couldn’t have done a better job. He worked with us to give us the perfect ceremony and day. He sent us all of the information we needed to get us our wedding license and make the day go as smooth as possible. He calmed us before and during the ceremony and did such a great job. I really couldn’t imagine our day with someone else. Thank you Anthony you were fantastic.Sent on 12/02/2018

Perfect choice for our special day!
Anthony was the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony! He is incredibly kind, professional, and we truly enjoyed working with him.
1. We loved his speaking voice, which was important to us since we will be listening to it on our wedding video for years to come.
2. Anthony was very supportive in helping us craft a wedding ceremony and vows that fit our views and personalities. Neither of us is religious, but we are somewhat spiritual, and there was never any pressure to add religious references to our ceremony.
3. He was very easy to work with since he was readily available via phone or email, always prompt when we met up, and he was genuinely interested in getting to know us before our wedding day.
4. Given his experience, we felt like we were in good hands and did not have to worry about our ceremony running smoothly. We even added a handfasting ritual last minute, and he worked it into our ceremony seamlessly.
5. Anthony offered to send in our signed marriage license, which we really appreciated as it meant one less thing on our list of post-wedding honey-do’s.
Whatever your special event is in Sedona, you will be in great hands if you choose Anthony as your officiant!

Absolutely mesmerizing! I can’t describe how professional and kind Anthony was! He was so understanding. He made the most daunting part of the ceremony so quick and painless. I will forever be thankful for the beautiful words he spoke. Not to mention the booklet of the ceremony he made for us to keep so we will always remember those beautiful words. I will recommend him to everyone. He was very organized and helped our wedding go off without a hitch. Thank you Anthony! Nothing but kind words for you!Sent on 11/08/2018

We planned our wedding last minute and Anthony was there every step of the way. He sent us lots of possible ceremony outlines and showed us how we could piece together different parts to create our own unique nuptials. He was incredibly responsive and so easy to work with. He showed up for the rehearsal and helped us walk through it and performed the perfect ceremony. He never tried to overshadow the groom and me and just set the right tone for the entire time. Anthony went above and beyond, typing up our vows for us in a book so we didn't stand there with our phones or a sheet of paper. I could not have imagined a better person to marry us. Thank you Anthony for everything!

Ron and I were so pleased to have Anthony Flesch perform our marriage ceremony! He was prompt in getting back to us online when we requested his services. He is the consummate professional wedding minister/officiant! Everything about him is first class! He is a beautiful person inside and out and has a wonderful sense of humor, as well as a way of making you feel as though you have known him all your life! We absolutely loved him and now consider him to be a lifelong friend to the two of us! Look no further if you want a beautiful wedding ceremony! Ron & Vickey

Anthony was perfect. He helped us navigate a meaningful but private wedding in Sedona, despite the fact we had never been to Sedona. His suggestions for location were sublime. He had great feedback on the timing/process to keep the logistics easy. Anthony’s vibe was perfectly aligned with ours, enhancing our ceremony in so many ways. It allowed us to be chill but profound. A rare combination. Most importantly, he helped us be us - a consummate steward.
Brandy · Married on 09/15/2018
Anthony was the best officiant a couple could hope for! He helped us write our vows and transitions. We told him what we wanted and he made it eloquently happen! He encouraged all of our ideas. He even made a keepsake script book for us! Honestly I did not choose him, our planner did, but I couldn’t have hand picked a better officiant. He is perfect and will help you make your vision, whatever that may be, better than you imagine!
Emily · Married on 09/01/2018
I found Anthony online on WeddingWire and emailed him and a few other officiants. Anthony replied very quickly to my email and was very pleasant and accommodating. Not living in the area, Anthony was always available via phone or email and provided us with lots of options for different ceremony ideas. He made a great effort to get to know us and was a great presence during our ceremony -- he even shed a tear at our vows! I would definitely recommend Anthony.
Demiree · Married on 09/01/2018
Very glad we hired Anthony to officiate our small ceremony at Cathedral Rock. He is very communicative and responsive, which we especially appreciated behind from out of state. His ceremony templates were great and he was a very eloquent speaker. Couldn't have asked for anything more!
Travis · Married on 07/23/2018
Anthony was fantastic. He was very accommodating throughout the entire process and stepped in to help where we weren't sure what to do. We had the best wedding day we could have imagined.
Kirstie · Married on 06/17/2018
We recently asked Anthony to be our officiant at a very small, very impromptu, informal ceremony in Sedona AZ. I was incredibly worried that with us planning our small event in less than a month that I wouldn't be able to find an officiant. In addition, we chose to marry on Father's Day, so this also added to the uncertainty. We found Anthony from his super reviews, and he was fantastic. Not only did I not have to compromise on anything that we wanted in our ceremony, but he also offered additional suggestions, edits, and templates for us to sort of pick and chose from.
Both my husband and I knew we wanted to write our own vows, but we were both a little apprehensive and scared of 'messing it up.' Anthony was open to us editing, adding, or subtracting from any of the ceremony templates he presented, and he took the time to look over our vows and make suggestions on amendments.
I was also worried about communication as I am often a worrier and a question asker. The whole process of speaking to him about the ceremony and being our officiant was so simple and easy I didn't even end up having any questions, but I always felt he was available to answer them if they pop up. Even before the ceremony, we were able to meet with Anthony to go over the flow of things (we didn't have a rehearsal being such a small event) and I genuinely felt supported the day of.
Finally, Anthony took the time to make us (my husband and I) memorable booklets of our ceremony that we will cherish as keepsakes forever! He also reached out about touching base any time we frequented Sedona again. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our small event!

My husband and I remarried after 51 years of marriage. Anthony gave us a beautiful ceremony down by oak creek. He was so easy and accommodating to work with.
Jeanette · Married on 06/09/2018
Anthony went above and beyond to make sure our ceremony was exactly the way we wanted it to be.
Jess · Married on 06/06/2018
Anthony was a perfect officiant for our 6/6/18 elopement! Ever accommodating, he provided great insight and advice from start to finish (we were from out of state and needed guidance regarding obtaining an application for an AZ marriage license as well as other wedding-related services). He even made the very strenuous trek up to Cathedral Rock (with an aching knee) to guide us through our vows. Anthony is a sweet, warm, genuine soul who made our day extra special and memorable! We would highly recommend him!
Alicia · Married on 05/20/2018
Anthony officiated our wedding and we were very impressed with his professionalism, his interest in making our wedding our own special day. He helped us choose our vows to suit our own personal beliefs.
Several of our guests told us that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to. Thank you Anthony for making our special day so very extra special!
Dana · Married on 04/30/2018
Anthony gave us the perfect ceremony. He worked with us to customize everything to reflect who we are and exactly what we were looking for. He was the perfect choice!
Joe · Married on 04/28/2018
Anthony was absolutely fantastic in every way. He was extremely professional, and worked with us to create the exact type of ceremony we wanted. Anthony was also a calming influence during the planning and build up to the ceremony and really helped put us at ease. We would give more stars if we could!
Andrea · Married on 04/24/2018
Anthony was great to work with. He responded to our questions and explained everything to us. He is a genuinely nice person who helped individualize our our ceremony and made it perfect for us. I definitely recommend choosing him!
Karen · Married on 04/20/2018
Anthony performed our ceremony for our elopement in Sedona. From start to finish every interaction with him was a delight. He takes great pride in his work and you can tell he loves what he does. And he is great at it-- it also doesn't hurt that he is straight out of central casting with his full head of white hair and lovely demeanor. He created a beautiful spiritual atmosphere thoughout the ceremony
Keith · Married on 03/14/2018
To say that Anthony was fantastic might be an understatement. We came from Virginia for our ceremony at Enchantment and he helped us plan this for weeks in advance with consistently fine advice. He then met with us the morning of the ceremony to make sure we were on the same page throughout. (We were.) Great personality, excellent suggestions, complete flexibility and a fun sense of humor. Wonderful experience from start to finish.
Sara · Married on 03/10/2018
Anthony was like a friend by the end of our wedding. He was such an enormous help when it rained on the day of the wedding. He offered to help during every part of the ceremony. Vows, location, special ceremony extras like our sand pouring, etc.
