Both Reverend O'Grady and his wife Lucy were incredible! They were instrumental in organizing and creating a flow within the wedding ceremony- and they created this spontaneous appearing organization while always having a smile on their faces along with several laughs! The ceremony was everything I could have dreamed of! I could not recommend them enough and feel truly blessed to have had them on our wedding team! :)Sent on 10/07/2014

reverend o'grady and his wife lucy are the quintessential dream team of the wedding industry, conducting a flawless rehearsal and a beautiful, professional and heartfelt ceremony that we will never forget. they made everything easier for us and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day special, from drying off the bridesmaid bouquets to providing us with a snapshot gallery of candid wedding photos. you'll be in good hands when you say i do to reverend o'grady.Sent on 02/05/2013

Reverend O'Grady was amazing!!! I was an out-of-state bride and was unable to meet him in person, but from our first contact, I could tell he would be excellent. He was friendly and professional all the way through. Even before I agreed to hire him, he sent me helpful resources for planning a wedding and changing my name afterwards. He was early and prepared and worked hard to learn my husband's difficult last name to say it correctly every time. He directed everyone involved in the wedding and thought of details that many others would have missed, such as certain ways to stand and hold the hands to get the best photographs. His assistant (and wife) Lucy was also amazing! She was so welcoming and helped the entire ceremony to run smoothly. Plus, she was taking pictures through the rehearsal and the wedding and by the evening of the wedding, I already had an e-mail from him stating he had mailed my marriage license and they included a link to the 200+ pictures they took! They definitely went above and beyond, and I am SO thankful I chose him. My ceremony was as close to perfection as it could have been!!Sent on 09/23/2012

My husband and I had an amazing experience working with Rev. O' Grady and his wife Lucy. They made every moment of our rehearsal and ceremony special. They were so sweet to us, and you could tell that they love what they do and respect the sanctity of marriage. The pictures that Lucy took of the rehearsal and ceremony are so precious. I'm so glad that she did this for us because they are the only pictures we have of our rehearsal. I just can not say enough great things about Rev. O' Grady and Lucy. If you are getting married in the Detroit area you must use them. You will not regret it, they are the best of the best.Sent on 05/21/2012

The Reverend was efficient, responsive, and warm. Working with him and his wife, Lucy, was a pleasure. I felt at easy with letting the Reverend run the show on the day of the wedding. His no-nonsense style meant that everyone knew what was going to happen when, and ensured that the wedding ceremony went flawlessly. If you need to hire an officiant, hire the Reverend!Sent on 08/21/2010

Reverend O'Grady was great! When we first met with him, we knew he would be perfect to officiate our ceremony! He has been officiating for a long time and has basically perfected the wedding ceremony! We decided to skip the rehearsal, because our wedding was very small, so there was a quick review of everything right before the ceremony. The ceremony was beautiful and just how we imagined! Also, his wife, Lucy, was so helpful with all the little details that could have been overlooked!Sent on 04/10/2010

We were so pleased with our choice of having Rev. O'Grady as our officiant. He clearly knows what he's doing and he (along with his wife) will help make your ceremony not only run smoothly but is set up in a way that looks beautiful in your pictures. We highly recommend him!!Sent on 08/28/2008

I can't say enough about the experience that Reverend O'Grady and his wife Lucy provided. Extremely professional and efficient--they have a great deal of experience in this field, and it shows.Sent on 07/27/2008

Rev. O'Grady and his wife Lucy are simply PHENOMENAL!!! I was very pleassed with both of their professionalism and their care for our ceremony. These two are very detail-oriented but it ran so smoothly. Rev. O'Grady really cared about how we wanted the ceremony to go and he followed through. His wife, Lucy, was jusst amazing. She helped me so much at the ceremony site. I had a spot on my dress and she sprang into action with her Tide-to-go stick and worked on getting it out. She was so helpful and she knows what she is doing, very prepared. I can't say enough about how wonderful both Rev. O'Grady and Lucy are!Sent on 09/02/2008

Swensen's Wedding Services wants to let you know that Reverend O'Grady and his wife he performed over 100 weddings for us over the last 15 years. All our brides say he is the following, flawless, easy to work with, personal, understanding, organized, on time- if not early, no pressure. The last thing I like about him is he makes sure all the loose ends: runner, flowers, sand/candles, ring bearer/flower girl are all in the right places at the right times. Also he is the only one I know who brings his own sound system for the wedding. Thank you Reverend O'Grady keep up the good work!Sent on 02/25/2014

Rev. OGrady did a fabulous job for us!! He was prompt, organized, and very detailed. My kind of guy!! He comes with his wife Lucy, and she acts as a coordinator. Shes extremely helpful and very sweet. All of our Bridal Party loved him, too. They have been in weddings before, but said ours was very organized. He recommended having someone tape the ceremony, if nothing else, and Im so glad we did. Its a fabulous video and an instant reminder of our beautiful day! It got a little windy the day of; he helped me when I got caught in my veil I made light of it, and everyone laughed it off! DH and I both wrote a little commitment speech to each other (kind of like your own vows) and it was great. If you have the opportunity to do that, do it. I think thats what MADE our ceremony.Sent on 07/22/2008
