    Paul was absolutely fantastic. He married my mom and stepdad two years ago and today he married my husband and I. Not only is he kind and professional, but he agreed to marry us with less than one weeks notice. We could not have imagined our simple ceremony going any better and we attribute much of that to Paul!

    Paul did our wedding for us on 8/18/18. He was very professional, organized, and responsive. He worked with us to customize the service to be exactly what we wanted. He worked with the coordinator at the rehearsal to make sure everyone knew what to do and what was going to happen. He did a great job for us the day of the ceremony and I would highly recommend him.

    Paul was THE BEST! My husband and I met him prior to the wedding and went over all of the details. He was timely on our wedding day and made sure everything ran smoothly and fluidly. I would refer him 100 times over again! He is so organized and knowledgeable, and has a true passion and commitment to this work. Thanks so much, Paul!!! You're the best!

    Paul was absolutely amazing, such a pleasure to work with him! He was very flexible and open, between arranging meetings and choosing aspects of our ceremony. He's a incredibly nice person and was helpful with the entire process before and after the wedding. He even mailed our wedding certificate! I couldn't possibly recommend Paul more - if you need an officiant, pick him!

    Happy Budget Bride

    We couldn't have made a better choice when we chose Paul as our wedding officient! We first spoke to Paul at a Bridal Show where we'd won a framed photograph he took outside the George Eastman house. Since then, we'd had many meetings with him where he made sure we were comfortable with the process and allowed us to discuss what we wanted him to talk about, with no pressure. Once we gave him all the details of how we met and what our lives together have been like, he went home and had us the first draft of a ceremony within 24 hours. He also allowed us to make changes whenever needed, and made sure he was inclusive of all backgrounds no matter how diverse our family was (very diverse).

    He was also well worth the money, considering he didn't ask much for the kind of service he provided. He even ensured my wife had somewhere to put her vows both before and after she read them, because dresses don't have pockets.

    If you're getting married, Paul is a no-brainer when it comes to your wedding officiant!

    I was trying to coordinate a wedding on behalf of our daughter. She and her fiancé are both in the Army, stationed in Alabama, and due to changes in their circumstances, they decided to marry earlier than anticipated. I had a month and a half to pull their wedding together. I found Paul online and he was very affordable. Thankfully, he was available when I needed him. I needed an officiant who was professional in every way--reliable, proactive, responsive, adaptable, and articulate, and I found that Paul's many 5-star reviews were well earned. He was great at follow-up and making sure all our I's were dotted and T's were crossed to ensure that the wedding ceremony went smoothly and according to law. I'd recommend him without hesitation to anyone, whether for a religious or non-denominational ceremony.

    Paul did a fantastic job officiating our wedding. From our initial meeting to the day of he was extremely professional and easy to work with. The only guidelines my husband and I had for our ceremony was something short and sweet and Paul was able to give us a bunch of options to choose from and tailored the perfect ceremony for us. He sent our marriage license in to the local town clerk promptly and our marriage certificates were waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon.

    I would highly recommend Paul!

    Paul was great. My fiance and I weren't sure what we wanted to do for our ceremony, Paul provided amazing samples, which we edited and mixed to create our own unique ceremony. Paul was very responsive, professional, and thorough to make sure our ceremony was perfect (and it was)!

    We are so very lucky to have found Paul to guide our wedding ceremony. Paul was readily in-touch during the months leading up to our wedding regarding the details and specifics of our wedding. We had quite a fair number of rather unique components to our wedding and our ceremony, and Paul was not only flexible, but helpful and supportive of those unique components. I think he truly enjoyed guiding us through our ceremony, and we SURELY enjoyed him doing so! Paul is even-keeled, with a kind and clear voice, and a fantastic selection of beautifully written options for the ceremony itself. He knew just how to accent our interests and the concepts we felt to be important. Paul also did a 9am rehearsal with us the day before our wedding, on rather short notice, and this was the very morning after his return from vacationing in Europe! I cannot tell you how many people approached us to tell us that our ceremony was literally the best they've ever attended, hitting notes of Carl Sagan and star-dust at our request. You simply could not ask for a more helpful and kind person, who truly loves doing this, to officiate your wedding. Well done Paul, and thank you so very much.
