    We couldn't have been happier to work with Joe Orlando as our officiant. Not only were we extremely pleased but a ton of our guests said his sermon was unique and touching. I would choose Rev. Orlando every single time!!

    Rev. Orlando was extremely open to our needs for this ceremony. He went to great lengths to ensure the event reflected both my wife and me, and our relationship. I cannot recommend him highly enough. We will forever be thankful that we entrusted him with the responsibility of overseeing our wedding vows. Thank you!

    Rev. Joe Orlando was wonderful!!! He met with us, got to know us and personalized our ceremony to fit us and our venue! He promptly responded to emails, answered questions, ran the rehearsal and preformed a beautiful ceremony. He was very quick to turn in all paper work so we were able to get our marriage certificate 2 days after the wedding! If you want someone who knows what they are doing, definitely have Joe perform your ceremony!!

    Reverend Orlando was the perfect fit for us. He was very responsive to emails and phone communication which was very helpful during planning. The Reverend would schedule meeting times when it was convenient to us in a location that was quiet and comfortable for discussing the wedding. He facilitated how weddings typically go and then we were able to fill in the details that were right for us. He was professional and efficient. Rev. Joe helped mold our wedding vows into beautiful words of wisdom which we can cherish our whole lives through. Reverend Orlando went above and beyond to meet our needs! I would absolutely recommend him to family and friends in the future. Thanks to a great Officiant and a wonderful, warm person!

    Our event time and location had to be changed at the last minute, and Joe went out of his way to accommodate us with very little notice. He performed our wedding ceremony, and we were so pleased that we requested he perform our renewal ceremony. He was wonderful at both events and designed ceremonies personalized just for us.

    Joe was fantastic! Absolutely wonderful! I was having a hard time finding an officiant we clicked with until my wedding coordinator suggested him. What a wonderful match! He sent me a rough draft of the ceremony a few months prior and it caused the tears to start rolling already. I'm glad I have a copy of it to keep, too, considering that I was so lost in the moment on the big day that I can't remember what was said! Lol. We received so many compliments on his ceremony, too. Everyone said it had them tearing up because it was as if it was written specifically for us and fit so perfectly. We literally had the perfect ceremony thanks to Joe. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

    Reverend Joe Orlando was the perfect choice for our June wedding. The ceremony he delivered was both heartfelt and comical. We had many guests rave about how great our ceremony was because Reverend Joe was just so wonderful. What's more, throughout the whole process, he was extremely responsive and helpful. We would recommend him without hesitation!

    Joe was fantastic. He wrote a wonderful ceremony that reflected on us perfectly. He was quick to respond and edit and re-edit when we were fickle! He was patient with all of our craziness and the craziness of our family, and extremely professional and flexible when it started raining RIGHT as we were about to begin, and he just went with it, and it was perfect. It was absolutely the most wonderful ceremony and he was amazing to work with. Would absolutely recommend without any hesitation!

    Rev. Joe was an absolute professional. When my husband I first met with him we were immediately impressed with his calm persona and confident manner. When it came time for the rehearsal he was available and kept the practice time running smoothly. We also appreciated the personal touches to the ceremony. I highly recommend Rev. Joe to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

    The day of our wedding, our officiant called to say she would be 1.5 hours late, and then 30 mins later she called back to say she was in a car accident and wouldn't be able to make it at all. The B&B we were hosting the wedding at called Joe and he came over right away. He had never met us, and knew nothing about us, but came anyway out of the goodness of his heart to help out a couple on their wedding day. He came straight from another wedding and was likely tired and a little apprehensive having never met us, but he performed the most beautiful ceremony I've ever heard. He spoke with warmth and love and made us feel like he had known us forever. I lost count at how many guests came up afterwards and commented on how much they really enjoyed the officiant -- which is not something a bride usually gets compliments on! Things may not have worked out the way we planned, but everything happened the way it should have and we have Joe to thank for that.

    Reverand Joe Orlando was a perfect fit for our wedding. He took the time to get to know us and the understand the kind of ceremony that we envisioned for our marriage. He captured the feel of the day ... the exchange of vows felt like a celebration, interspersed with spirituality, reverence and humor. He was supportive when I wrote my own vows and helped calm my nerves in the days before, and the day of, the wedding with his gentle advice.
    He was fabulous and I highly recommend him. He will help make your day even more special.

    Joe was absolutely incredible. From start to finish you will not find a more professional, tension easing, or caring officiant. My wife and I have already suggested to others that we know to look no further. Thanks again Joe for all you did.

    Joe was great for our needs-- very responsive to our simple, yet unique requirements and gave us a great referral for flowers (in the 11th hour). We couldn't be happier with the way our ceremony turned out-- Joe captured all of the details we asked for, showed up exactly on time and tailored the ceremony to all of the specifics we wanted. I would certainly recommend Joe to anyone.
