Sarah Faith Smith · Married on 06/02/2019
My husband and I feel so lucky to have had Stephen officiate our wedding in June 2019. From our first coffee shop “get to know you” meeting until our wedding day, Stephen was professional and responsive - and even more importantly, someone we were so happy to have play such an important part of our big day. Stephen truly got us. Our ceremony was just what we wanted, and then some, as my husband inserted a little impromptu joking that Stephen rolled with beautifully. We were all crying and laughing, laughing and crying. The vibe, the words, the sentiment and guest response was just what we hoped for. We couldn’t be happier with how it went and highly recommend Stephen!Sent on 06/28/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Sarah & Chad thank you so much! It was such a great experience for me as well. You two were so much fun to work with. I enjoyed every single minute of getting to know you all. Chad your impromptu responses made your wedding such a fun experience for everyone there. We truly had a great time. Thanks so much guys, let's stay in touch!!!!

Stephen wrote and performed a wonderful ceremony that represented us as a couple. It was great to have someone listen to our story and create something that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. He was responsive, answered all of our questions, and was at the ceremony on time.Sent on 08/29/2019

So Incredibly personal!!
Stephen officiated our ceremony which was 4 hours from where we lived. We were not able to meet in person prior to the ceremony but it didn’t feel that way! He took the time to skype with us to ask questions and get all the details of our relationship. He helped us customize a ceremony that fit what we were looking for and was always quick to respond. We wanted to include my son in the ceremony and also include our Catholic faith. He made our ceremony so incredibly personal to us and made it one of a kind! We couldn’t have been more pleased with his work!!Sent on 06/23/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Jackie, thank you so much!!!! It was such an honor to serve you all. From start to finish you all were such a great pleasure. I am so happy you all were pleased with my services. May God bless your union for many years to come! :)
Karoline Sharkus · Married on 05/18/2019
So happy with our choice!
Stephen was amazing! We don't live close to Nashville, so he scheduled a Skype session with my now husband and I to really go over our love story. We spent over an hour on the call and he was able to get to know us so well, and vice versa. He wrote personal vows for us that were beautiful and well delivered. He himself was very prompt and professional from start to finish. We couldn't be happier with our choice! All around lovely person that we would recommend to anyone.Sent on 06/18/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Karoline I can't thank you and Christopher enough for allowing me the privilege to work with you all. It was an equally great experience for me. From our first Skype down to the presentation of Mr. & Mrs. was a total thrill for me. I can't thank you all enough for the privilege. Thank you for your kind and generous words!

Stephen is a Star!
Stephen is so personable. Nashville was a destination wedding, and Stephen helped me find a excellent, local hair dresser that could also do my makeup! He also knows everyone that you could possibly need from cake makers, to my contact at Cheekwood, etc. He is quick, responsive, and efficient, and always willing to help. He tailored a unique ceremony for us, and was kind enough to allow us to change the time of the ceremony just two weeks before the big day! He has a great sense of humor, and we really wish we had more time with him. He was on time, and even sent us a copy of the ceremony. We believe Stephen really loves what he does, and it shows.Sent on 03/30/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Ann, thank you so much for the kind review! It was a great pleasure to work with you and Jim on your wedding. I think everything went just perfectly on your wedding day. I am glad that I was able to refer you to other professionals that you found helpful. I'm always happy to refer couples to those that I know will serve them best. Thank you for the honor of serving you all. I wish you the very best for a long and happy marriage! :)
Cory · Married on 03/09/2019
With our venue changing multiple times Stephen was able to accommodate with us! He made our ceremony very fun, had us laughing. He’s great, If you’re looking for amazing time definitely book with him! He is quick to response too.Sent on 03/24/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Cory it was my great pleasure to work with you and Drew. I also had a great time celebrating your love story with you all. All your family and friends were so excited for the two of you and they all treated me like I was one of them. Thank you so much for the privilege and thank you for your kind words! :)

Heartfelt, sincere, and unforgettable!
Stephen was such a breeze to work with!Sent on 11/24/2018
From the moment we "accidentally" ran into him before we'd even met him, to the wedding ceremony itself...we have nothing but wonderful things to say.
When we first started looking for someone to officiate our wedding, we were very nervous about hiring a "stranger." However, by the end of the experience, we could not have imagined anyone else standing between the two of us! Stephen was so thorough. He took the time to really get to know us, and you could tell he was invested in making our the day the best that it could be. It was great to be able to read our ceremony ahead of time, and he was quick to make any tweaks we requested. He truly wants to make the ceremony perfect for the bride and groom, and that's exactly what he did for us!
We highly recommend him for anyone looking for an officiant that really gets to know their clients and truly puts their needs at the top of the list. We can honestly say our day would not have been as special as it was without Stephen!
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Jennifer and Scott, it's hard to know what to say after such generous words as those. I am greatly humbled by your review. From the very beginning, it was a great thrill for me to work with you all. I could tell from our first sit down that there was a very genuine and solid love between the two of you. There is NO doubt in my mind whatsoever that the two of you were absolutely meant to be together. My heart is deeply touched and I am honored you allowed me to serve you on such a special day in your lives. Stay in touch with me guys! Thanks a million! :)
Rachel · Married on 11/10/2018
Kind, creative, individualized ceremony
Stephen was amazingly organized and individualized our ceremony. We had no idea where to begin in the officiant seeking process. Stephen was always there to answer questions and did not make us feel rushed. Highly reccomend his service!! Not to mention our wedding ended up on a frozen cold day and Stephen didn’t complain and we were still made to feel important and loved by his ceremony. Thank you Stephen for the beautiful words.Sent on 11/24/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Rachel and Brian what a great blessing it was for me to get to work with you all. From our Skype to the "I do's" was such a pleasure. You all and your families made me feel like I had known you for years. Your kindness and generousity will be felt in my heart for years to come. I am so honored you allowed me to be a part of such a monumental day in your love story. Thank you guys so much! I look forward to seeing many more chapters written in this undending story. :)

Shana · Married on 10/27/2018
Book Stephen now!
After researching many many officiants, I came across Stephen's page. After reading all the wonderful reviews from other couples, and how he wrote a beautiful ceremony based off of their love story, I knew he was our guy! I went with my gut and booked him before we even met him. We met with him a few months before our wedding, and spent about 2 hours with him sharing our love story. He wanted to know as many details as possible, and truly know us on a personal level and what made us special as a couple.Sent on 11/28/2018
The day of the wedding, he made a point to track down my father, my husband, and speak with me before the ceremony started to run through a few things and assure us everything would go smoothly and it did!
The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and was beautifully written.
Thank you so much Stephen!
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Shana, thank you so much for your kind and sweet words. I can assure you that the pleasure was all mine. I really enjoyed meeting with you guys and hearing about your sweet love story. I just loved hearing about "the look" that started it all! It was a tremendous privilege for me to work with you all and to see everything come together so beautifully on your wedding day. You and Chris will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you again for everything, I am honored!!!!

LooK no further, you want Unforgettable Ceremonies on your team!
Planning a long distance/destination wedding can be a stressful endeavor, but Stephen at Unforgettable Ceremonies took away all of our fears with finding someone to officiant our wedding at the Cordelle in Nashville. Stephen sent a questionnaire through email and requested a FaceTime meeting prior to booking him for our big day—about three hours later, we finished our meeting and there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted Stephen to create our ceremony- three hours and it felt we knew him well and that he knew us! He took the time to read over our hobbies, relationship information, wedding plans, and life goals before our FaceTime meeting and even had more questions and commentary based off of all of this information. We were so pleased with how genuine Stephen was with us, the decision was easy. We didn’t end up meeting Stephen until our wedding day, but he sent an outline of the ceremony ahead of time (in case anything needing altering), he was mindful of parents, timing, and what colors he should wear, the type of ceremony we wanted (traditional vs modern, faith based vs more secular, traditional vows vs personalized vows) so we felt so confident going into wedding day without having the need to meet with him multiple times. Stephen delivered a beautiful heartfelt ceremony such that all of our guests believed he was a close friend or family member and talked about how powerful his messages on love were. We have watched our wedding video over and over again, holding ourselves to the vows and messages from our ceremony. Do yourselves all a favor and have Unforgettable Ceremonies create a personalized ceremony of celebration of your love story!Sent on 03/07/2019
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Erin & Steven, I could never thank you all enough for your kindness to me. To say it was a genuine pleasure to work with you all, would be an enormous understatement. From beginning to end, you all were so open, kind and considerate to me. Your wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. I am thrilled beyond words that you all were happy with not only your ceremony but my services leading up to your big day. Thank you so much! I am highly honored to have been a part of such a beautiful celebration. Thanks for the video clip too! It's spectacular! My heartfelt appreciation to you guys! :)

Stephen Seymour was a wonderful minister. He was very responsive, such a pleasure to work with, and loved by our guests. He made sure the ceremony was about us, and not a cookie cutter experience.Sent on 11/11/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Sonia, thank you and Rob so much for the privilege of serving you all. It was such an honor from the beginning right through the conclusion of the ceremony. I wish you all many, many years of happiness and success. I look forward to seeing the rest of your love story unfold through the years. Thank you guys for everything! :)
Felicia · Married on 09/02/2018
We had an amazing experience with Stephen!
We chose Stephen Seymour as our officiant and could not have been any more pleased! We had an initial meeting on Skype that lasted well over an hour. He was very personable and sincerely interested in our love story and what brought us together. We laughed with him and really connected, I think I even cried talking to him on Skype LOL We spoke a few more times leading up to the wedding and he was always prompt to respond to all my questions. We had a couple special requests for our ceremony and he sent us an outline of everything to review prior to the big day. On wedding day, he delivered a beautiful ceremony, had the humor I was looking for in a pastor and truly made me feel like he enjoyed himself and was happy to be there. He has kept up with us since on FB and is just an overall sweet, precious man! Go with Stephen, you won't regret it!Sent on 11/01/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Awwwwwww Felicia you made me cry! It was an absolute thrill to work with you and Marcus on your beautiful wedding. Right from the start I knew you two were special and that you were truly meant to be together. The love you all have for each other is not only obvious in your words and actions but your expressions and words make it very clear you have profound love for one another. I am SO happy that God brought the two of you together (and handsome Tristan). I am excited to watch your love story grow and flourish through the years. I wish every blessing possible for years to come :) Thank you guys so much!

Rebecca · Married on 07/07/2018
Planning our wedding from Louisiana was stressful at times but Stephen made picking an officiant the easiest part! We talked over skype a few months prior to the wedding and we really felt he genuinely wanted to get to know us and wanted to make our wedding ceremony the best he could. And he did! We were overjoyed with the ceremony he put together for us. It really did sum up our love story. We will always look back fondly on our ceremony, he truly made it Unforgettable!! Thank you again, Stephen!!!Sent on 07/26/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Rebecca and Cole, thank you both so much for the privilege of serving you all. It was indeed my honor. Both of you so openly and enthusiastically shared your love story with me, which made all the difference in the creation of your ceremony. I am so glad you guys were pleased with what I was able to accomplish for you. Thank you both for your service to our country and for allowing me to give back just a little bit. Many blessings to you :)

Stephen was the officiant for my wedding, and he did an absolutely fantastic job!

Marshall · Married on 06/30/2018
It only happens once in a great while when someone comes into your life for a special event, and you can automatically tell it was meant to be. That is what happened when we met Stephen at Starbucks in Nashville, TN. Dressed to impress, Stephen walked in and immediately wanted to get to know the ins and outs of my wife ( Amanda ) and I's relationship. He began by asking the traditional questions about how we met and where we plan on going in our journey. By the time we had finished telling him our love story, his reaction said it all, you could tell he was attached. He told us how deeply moved he was by our story and promised us a ceremony we would never forget, and he did not lie in the slightest. Stephen worked with our hectic schedule to make sure that everything went as smooth as possible. During the rehearsal, we went step by step on how things would progress during the ceremony to make sure it was perfect. When it came time for the ceremony to start, Stephen began to speak the most beautiful words I have ever heard come from anyone. This was no ordinary speech, this was not a speech coming from someone who was just looking for a paycheck. No, these were the words coming from an honest man who had invested his time into two people and their love for one another, focusing on every little detail they had mentioned to him when telling him their story. The words were perfect, said with sincerity and mixed in with a little humor, Stephen had portrayed our life and our love without missing a single detail. Not only did he deliver it with power and compassion, he delivered it with a message to everyone there, to appreciate every moment we are given. I would recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking for more than just an Officiant because he is more than just that. He is an honest, caring, loving and genuine human being. In other words, you are getting much more than a great Officiant, you are going to receive a lifelong friend. Thank you, Stephen!Sent on 07/21/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Marshall and Amanda, I am completely overwhelmed by your generous words. I seriously had no idea that I had such an impact on you all. Yes it is true that I was very moved by your love story and the sacrifices you all made to be together. It was particularly amazing to me to learn of how you two met and instantly there was a bond between you both. Thank you so much, not only for your kind words, but the high honor it was to work with you all through the process. The joy on your faces on your wedding day was a great reward to me. I do indeed consider you all to be life long friends. Thank you both so much! :)
Jessica · Married on 06/16/2018
Stephen was a perfect fit for us! I was especially impressed with how he took lots of time to get to know us and our story. We were planning our Nashville wedding from San Francisco, so we really appreciated his responsiveness via email and his accommodating our request for Skype meetings! We had a non-religious ceremony, and Stephen did a great job of conveying the profound meaning of that day.Sent on 06/29/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Jessie and Jacob I hardly know how to begin to thank you guys for the honor to work with you all. From start to finish it was a beautiful experience for me. The two of you exude so much love for each other and for all who are privileged to come across your paths. Thank you from the bottom of my heart tor your kindness, generousity and making me feel like part of your family. I wish you all the very best on your journey together for many great years to come. And yes Jessie, you WILL be in my book LOL :) Thanks guys!
Landen · Married on 06/09/2018
Stephen gave us a day we will never forget because of the way he intertwined our love story with our love of the Lord so beautifully. Our ceremony perfectly showcased the type of Godly relationship we were ready to embark on and we could not have asked for a better officiant, mentor, and friend to marry us. We would rightly reccmomend Stephen to any couple who wants someone who so dearly cares about the two hearts he is pronouncing as one. We love you dearly Stephen, thank you for everything. -Justin and Landen KempSent on 06/23/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Landen & Justin, your overwhelming review literally brought tears to my eyes. You were so kind with your words and I will cherish them always just as I will cherish the two of you and your families. Thank you so much for your generous words and for the honor of serving you on your beautiful wedding day. God bless you both!
Whitney · Married on 06/09/2018
Stephen Seymour was an absolute gift to work with. I am a wedding planner in Nashville, TN and it is so important to me that every vendor embodies exactly what the bride and groom want their wedding day surrounded by: kindness, joy and peace. Stephen carried that during the entire process, from his emails to signing the marriage certificate. I would absolutely refer him to any of my clients. Thank you Stephen for doing what you love and ushering such beauty into the wedding industry.Sent on 07/10/2018

Isabel · Married on 04/21/2018
Stephen was the best choice for officiants! From the first 3 hour coffee meeting we had with him, we knew he'd help make our day special. He individualizes his ceremonies to truly capture each couple and it was no different for our wedding. He responds to emails quickly and thoroughly and even guided us through the confusing process of obtaining a marriage license. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant and are forever thankful for his presence in our wonderful wedding!Sent on 05/01/2018
Unforgettable Ceremonies's reply:Izzy & Sam, thank you so much for your kind words. What a great privilege it was for me to work with you all. Creating your ceremony was an easy task for me as you all shared so enthusiastically your very unique love story. I am so glad you all were pleased not only with your ceremony but with my services leading up to. Thank you again for the honor, I look forward to seeing your love story continue to unfold for many years to come. :)
