Korbin · Married on 11/16/2019
A blessing in disguise!
My husband & I looked through numerous officiants trying to find someone that fit us as a couple. We both felt that we needed someone who could incorporate a meaningful ceremony into our wedding and we definitely found that in Minister Steve! Prior to the wedding, we met with Steve to discuss details, kept in touch throughout the process and caught up again at our rehearsal for the wedding. All communication was courteous, he was very punctual and always one step ahead. During our wedding, we wanted to perform handfasting and wanted minimal religious notations which Steve fulfilled greatly. The ceremony and service were worded and delivered beautifully and he gave us a script to check over beforehand too to check if we wanted to make any changes. All in all, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him and we couldn't have picked anyone better. Highly recommend this wonderful man!Sent on 01/10/2020
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you my friend! Had a great experience marrying you and Korbin! I am so glad you found me and I am truly blessed to call you both my friends! Ready player one?

Steve went the extra mile and did the ceremony in English and Spanish, (for my wife)! That made my bride very comfortable.Sent on 11/12/2019

Professional, quality, personable
Absolutly amazing. We had minister Paul as our officiant. His preparation and performance were great. He communicated well before our wedding to make sure everything was the way we wanted. Great speaker and very personable. Thank you so much minister Paul.Sent on 09/21/2020

Minister Steve was absolutely fantastic to work with! He worked with us to create our perfect ceremony and had a great sense of humor too! He was very patient with our rowdy wedding party and made sure that the ceremony went off without a hitch. Thanks for everything!Sent on 09/20/2020

Brief but beautiful!!
With little notice, Minister Steve whipped up the perfect words for our impromptu elopement and made it as intimate and special as we had hoped. Extremely responsive and accommodating, Minister Steve rolled with punches when rain moved in on our day. Thank you Minister Steve!!Sent on 08/11/2020
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Aw thanks Sherry! I wish you and Wayne all the happiness in the world! Was a great location and the rain really did stop for the ceremony. God Bless both of you!

He let us really plan what we wanted. He was also provided us with guidance and advice. He was perfect and allowed us to be who were are. I also like that he brought levity to such a nerve racking situation. He was perfect.Sent on 08/31/2020
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Hey thank you Jessica! Was a lot of fun all weekend. Thanks for providing meals for Paul and I at the rehearsal and my meal at the reception. I love that you guys gave out Olive Oil as favors. Very original! God Bless you and Jordan!

Minister Steve is amazing!
Minister Steve was fantastic! Our DJ was late and Minister Steve saved the day because he brought speakers and a microphone just in case! He made us feel so comfortable and spoke so eloquently. It was a pleasure speaking with him prior to the wedding to fine-tune the ceremony. Would highly recommend Minster Steve - thank you for everything!Sent on 01/02/2020
Angie · Married on 09/07/2019
Minister Steve was the best choice for our ceremony. Not only was he flexible with our schedules, he was open to all our ideas and worked with us on incorporating a tree planting, our kids and our dog in the ceremony!
He was diligent and timely with the legal paperwork, one less thing we had to manage that day.
Our families are still talking about the wonderful ceremony!Sent on 07/12/2019

Easy to work with and very accommodating.
Minister Steve was great to work with. He was very responsive to messages and understanding when this stressed out bride did not back to him right away. He traveled to my venue for the rehearsal and wedding even though it was far away. I would highly recommend Minister Steve.Sent on 09/08/2019
Krista · Married on 08/16/2019
Thank you Minister Steve!
Minister Steve was the best officiant we could have asked for! The ceremony and our vows was my favorite part of my wedding day, and this is largely in part to Minister Steve's thoughtfully planned words! He is so kind and fun to be around, and he also keeps everyone where they are supposed to be! He is such a down to earth person! My husband and I, and everyone else in our wedding party felt very comfortable throughout the whole ceremony! Thank you Minister Steve!Sent on 09/29/2019
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you Krista! I had a great time with you and your families! Best of everything in the future!

The BEST - 100% Would Hire Again!
Minister Steve was absolutely amazing. After reaching out to him, I received a call within hours! He was flexible and was able to change his schedule for us. My husband (thanks to Minister Steve), and I were on a tight time crunch due to our daughter coming soon, husband is leaving the country, work; just life! Minister Steve made it work and we are so grateful to him for his time! I 100% recommend him for any service! Price is perfect, flexible, he is personable, quick to respond to you, all in all such an amazing ceremony! He even cared enough to ask what colors he should wear, he allowed us to pick the time and place, we are beyond grateful for Minister Steve!Sent on 07/08/2019
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you Katherine! It is always an honor to work with our military heroes! I hope you will keep in touch so I can watch that little girl grow up! (And don't forget, I do baptisms!) Much Love...
Jennifer · Married on 06/14/2019
Minister Steve did a wonderful job helping us prepare for our wedding. He reviewed our ceremony with us and made as many edits as we needed to make it fit us. The hand fasting ceremony that he created matched us well and the quaich ceremony tied in our Scottish roots. Minister Steve provided many humorous moments throughout the rehearsal and wedding that helped ease our nerves. We felt very comfortable with him and were grateful to have chosen him as our officiant.Sent on 07/17/2019
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you so much Jennifer and also for sharing those amazing honeymoon pictures! Please stay in touch!
Lauren · Married on 06/01/2019
Very flexible & great personality!
We were so blessed to have Steve as our minister for our wedding. Our original minister (a family friend) had to unexpectedly back out last minute. Steve responded fast, was willing to help us out in a crunch, and was super flexible by booking us just a few hours after another wedding already booked on our date. I really appreciate his patience when working with us during rehearsal. We loved his friendly personality and great sense of humor, which he added to our wedding! I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a wedding minister. We will forever be grateful for his part in making our dream day come true!Sent on 07/08/2019

Very good flexible minister
Minister Steve was great from the beginning. He immediately responded when we inquired, answered all questions, and we quickly decided that he was a good fit for our wedding. He checked in several times to see if our preparations we're going well and offered to help write our vows. We were keeping everything simple, so we did not require much assistance but he made sure we knew he was there to help. We chose the "Steve is Here. Let's Get This Over With!" Package and it fit right in with a simple wedding. We didn't have a rehearsal wedding, but Minister Steve was great with his cues to help. He also brought his wife along to the wedding, who was very warming and inviting.Sent on 05/30/2019
Leslie · Married on 05/04/2019
Just what we were looking for.
We asked Minister Steve to officiate our wedding on May 4 and he made the ceremony exactly as we wanted. He was respectful of our requests and details, and worked with us to tailor elements of the ceremony as we wanted. He has a great sense of humor and yet an extreme attention to detail. We would highly recommend him if you are looking for someone to officiate you special day.Sent on 05/28/2019

The family friend you haven't met yet!
My fiancée (now wife!) put me in charge of hiring an officiant. I found a listing for this gentleman that was highly reviewed, took the time to look the part, and -- bonus -- offered a military discount. After a couple of emails, I was good, Minister Steve was in, and my box was checked.Sent on 04/17/2019
When the time was getting close, Steve checked in and said it was time to meet to plan out the ceremony. There were maybe six emails and a coffee meeting during this phase, but at that point Steve's very likable nature became apparent. We quickly realized we didn't just want this guy to show up and make things official, we wanted him there to be a part of it. And he very much was.
In terms of what to expect, Minister Steve is an organized officiant. He'll talk to you about what to expect, and from the initial conversations will put together some choices that enable you to make the ceremony exactly what you want, always checking to make sure you don't miss anything you aren't aware of. He's exactly the right mix of firm (when dealing with the cat-herding of dealing with organizing your bridal party) and fun, determining where your sense of humor is and blending right in with it.
If you aren't getting married in a church, you need an officiant, so if you're reading this you're just looking to make sure you get one more thing done on that long list. If your smart and/or fortunate enough to hire him, Minister Steve is a really good guy that you will be very glad you made a part of your day. We certainly are!!
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thanks so much Colby...I had a great time and really enjoyed being part of your amazing day... The best man speech was one for the ages! Give my love to Laura and have fun on the honeymoon!
Jeff Green & Jacqueline Carr · Married on 03/21/2019
Minister Steve was extremely professional and caring during the whole wedding ceremony process. He was quick to respond to my e-mails, and very helpful with ideas regarding the ceremony. He gave us a draft of our wedding ceremony way in advance which gave us time to review and make any modifications. He even went above and beyond by helping supply music for our wedding. He made our wedding ceremony beautiful and we are blessed to have him be part of our day.Sent on 03/23/2020

Perfect addition to our day!
Minister Steve was one of the best vendors we decided to hire for our day! He conducted our ceremony beautifully and added some humor into it! We received compliments all night specifically about how much people loved our ceremony, and how it brought quite a few of them to joyful tears. He worked with us to put together the script and let us review it a few times for any revisions when needed. We wanted our ceremony to be religious, but not strict to any specific faith, which he managed to put together for us perfectly. He stayed for our reception as well and was a great addition to the family! He really is a great person in addition to being a great wedding vendor. We were so glad we trusted the previous reviews, as he really lived up to them!Sent on 01/20/2019

Even got his feet wet!
Our officiant cancelled a few weeks before we got married...they double booked, Steve took us on and made me feel at ease! We got married in the water, yes you read that right IN the water... Steve was flexible and worked with us to create a ceremony that reflected us as a couple and quite literally got his feet wet! He made our ceremony about water. We are thankful for minister Steve and couldn't recommend him enough!Sent on 10/18/2018

Minister Steve is the best!
Minister Steve did such an amazing job! He was very supportive, responsive, and had a huge part in helping my husband and I feel calm, believe it or not, on our wedding day. My husband and I wrote our own vows and my vows were to him and his daughter. I was obviously extremely nervous and during the rehearsal he had reassured me that everything will be OKAY, take deep breaths and just pretend it is only us up there when speaking. When the day finally came, and it was my turn to read my vows, I honestly felt like it was only us up there. Saying my vows to my husband and now stepdaughter felt more intimate than I anticipated which made the day extremely special to us. The day turned out perfect and Minister Steve played a part in that. We couldn't recommend him more. He will not disappoint! Thank you, Steve for everything!!Sent on 12/18/2018
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you so much TaylorMarie! It definitely was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been a part of! God Bless You!

Minister Steve did such an amazing job and touched the hearts of all of our guests that it even convinced one guest that it was time for him to get down on one knee and propose to his girlfriend!! His beautiful words will forever be a fond memory that tied together our wedding day and started the planning of another.Sent on 09/21/2018
We're not from the area so we weren't familiar with Minister Steve but as soon as we met him he felt like he was already a long-time friend! Steve is truly the cherry on top of a wonderful wedding day!
Alisha · Married on 08/18/2018
Minister Steve did such a wonderful job with our wedding ceremony! My (now) husband and I were a little nervous about being in front of all of our friends and family but Steve made us feel more comfortable. He led the rehearsal the night before and went through the ceremony a couple of times so we could practice what to say and little details that we hadn’t thought of. He checked in with us before the ceremony and told us separately that it’s just the three of us up there, which really helped us both remember what the moment was about. The ceremony script, which he sent to us well in advance in case we wanted to make any changes, was catered to our family but also unique to us. He even stayed to perform a blessing at the reception, which was really nice. Overall, Minister Steve was great to work with and I would highly recommend him!Sent on 08/25/2018
Minister Steve of PA's reply:Thank you so much Alisha! I had a great time working with you guys! Hope to see you again soon!
