Caring & Experienced!
I relocated to Greenville awhile back and had yet to establish a home church, which put me in a quandary when I was ready to get married. For my Spring 2019, I wanted to find not just an officiant e.g. notary, but someone that would bring a spiritual aspect to our wedding ceremony. A marriage ceremony is a celebration, but at the same time it's a solemn occasion, not to be taken lightly. My husband and I met with Reverend Sullivan and his wife after I reached out via Wedding Wire. Afterwards, we decided that we wanted him to officiate our ceremony and his wife to be our ceremony coordinator. They both were helpful in providing insight to past weddings they'd been a part of at our venue, Pretty Place Chapel. They braved some seriously stormy weather the afternoon of our wedding to climb the mountain to Pretty Place. Throughout the process Reverend Sullivan was very responsive and quick to provide information to any questions I sent his way. The ceremony was beautiful and although I sent him information related to the ceremony last minute, like hours before the ceremony, it all flowed so beautifully. We will forever be thankful for him and his wife, Cecilia, being a part of our ceremony.Sent on 05/08/2019

We can't thank John and Cecilia enough for everything they both did to make our wedding day so special. John was the absolute best officiant! Everything went so smoothly and he did a fantastic job! We appreciate all of the time that was put into listening to what we wanted and crafting a great ceremony! Also, we are so happy that we went through the SYMBIS program with John and Cecilia. We feel like that program with the both of them really helped prepare us for marriage. We loved their insight and ideas. We couldn't recommend 2 Become 1 Heart Enough!Sent on 05/17/2019

Easy to Communicate with & Wonderful Ceremony
John and his wife were wonderful to work with. He did a fantastic job, and helped us create a beautiful ceremony we’ll cherish forever. He provided some valuable resources to assist us with picking the kind of ceremony we wanted. John was also easy to reach and always willing to meet up when requested.

I don't even know where to begin! John and Cecilia helped create the wedding of our dreams. John is so accommodating and helps create the most amazing ceremony. He met with us twice before the wedding to ensure that our ceremony was exactly what we envisioned. Our ceremony was so beautiful! Our family and friends keep talking about the ceremony and how amazing it was! Most people compliment the reception, but our ceremony was filled with so much emotion- laughter and tears! John's wife, Cecilia, was our day-of coordinator. She is very organized and contacted all of our vendors prior to the wedding. She was there the entire day to help set-up and ensure that everything was in the right spot. Cecilia did an amazing job! John and Cecilia ran our rehearsal and it was seamless. They are such a fantastic team! They like to joke with one another and laugh. Their love is so inspiring. Using Cecilia as a day-of coordinator made my day stress-free. It should be a no-brainer to use her for your big day. She was available whenever I needed her and was able to come grab things for me. I can't thank John and Cecilia enough for their hard work. They truly made our wedding so amazing and the best day of our lives!!Sent on 08/07/2018

We were so thankful to have John as our wedding officiant. He was very responsive, so down to earth, and easy to work with. My husband and I felt so relaxed around him and he helped us create such a meaningful ceremony that we will forever cherish. We also felt so lucky to be able to get to know his wife, Cecilia, as well through their premarital counseling sessions, which we would highly recommend as well!Sent on 11/03/2017

Rev. Sullivan was amazing. He was so easy to work with and planned a perfect ceremony for my husband and I. Everyone at my wedding was complimenting on how wonderful his message was. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a romantic and personalized ceremony. His wife, who helped direct the wedding, was also amazing. Thank you so much for making our day one we will never forget!Sent on 07/19/2017

I was in need of someone to preside over my parents 50th wedding anniversary vow renewals and located Reverend Sullivan on Wedding Wire. I told him how my parents got married in a drive-in theatre in South Carolina while my father was stationed in Ft Gordon, GA and that I wanted to reenact their marriage for them as best as possible. Reverend Sullivan seemed thrilled and did a wonderful job for my parents vow renewal. He came up with the entire format for their vows. It was better than I expected!!!! Thank you again Reverend Sullivan.Sent on 02/12/2017
2 Become 1 Heart's reply:Kevin, It was truly a privilege to be a part of this special occasion. Your parents are truly extraordinary people with an amazing story! It was so refreshing to see all their family there supporting them and celebrating. Once again thank you for allowing me to be part of it!

John was amazing- he literally saved our butts after our preacher bailed on us a month before the wedding. Even on such short notice he met with us and helped us put together a beautiful ceremony. I would be lying if I was to say I wasn't disappointed when our preacher cancelled, being that he actually knew us and our relationship, but we couldn't have found a better fill in than John. He took the time to get to know us and when ceremony time came, I really felt like he was who was supposed to be up there the whole time. Thank you so much John!Sent on 02/05/2016
Melanie · Married on 09/26/2015
My fiance and I were getting married out of town in Greenville, SC and needed an officiant for our ceremony - we both wanted to ensure our officiant was a man of faith and integrity - and that's exactly what we found in John Sullivan. We met with John and his wife prior to our ceremony and instantly connected them - we were able to plan out exactly the type of ceremony we wanted and John was great at giving advice and putting the ceremony together. Our day was so special and turned out beautifully and John was a large part of that. Can't thank him enough!Sent on 10/12/2015

John was so great! From the first meeting to our wedding day he made us feel as though we had known him for years. He truly cares about making your wedding day special and has all the right tools to do so. I highly recommend John for your officiant needs. His website was also super helpful for what to do after the wedding (name change info). Look no further - John's your guy!Sent on 10/08/2015

My now husband and I were not from the Greenville area and therefore did not have a home church for our wedding. We are now residents and belong to a church in town, but over a year ago while planning our wedding we had no idea how difficult finding a church and pastor would be. John was so easy to work with and we are so happy that he was able to marry us. We even did a portion of our ceremony in a way that he had never done before and he was very open and accommodating to it. I would recommend him (and his amazing wife) to anyone looking to be married in the area by a wonderful pastor!Sent on 07/27/2014

Reverend Sullivan did an awesome job officiating my daughter's wedding. He was well spoken and obviously prepared for the ceremony. I believe he did exactly just as the bride and groom wanted. He also had a sense of humor which I personally appreciated. He is a very pleasant, friendly man and makes you feel at ease. Reverend Sullivan definitely contributed to the success of the day, it was beautiful.Sent on 06/10/2014

John was very helpful and wonderful to work with. He arrived for the rehearsal, walked us through everything, gave pointers and advice where necessary. I created my own custom ceremony which he reviewed and advised on through emails prior to the rehearsal. He was very respectful and courteous. My wife and I would definitely recommend to anyone as an officiant. Nothing but positive remarks in his behalf!Sent on 09/14/2014
