Scott Payne is an absolute dream! Where do I even begin? From the first moment we met Scott we knew there was something special about him but we could never have imagined just how fabulous he is. We had the wedding of our dreams in great part because of Scott! The ceremony is the most important part and Scott made it the most memorable part. Scott was funny, helping us to relax and entertaining helping our guests not day dream away. Every single guest we have spoken with said our ceremony was the best they have ever been to which means the absolute world to me as that is the most important part of the whole day! You would have thought we had known Scott our entire lives! Choosing Scott to marry us was the best decision we made for our wedding other than choosing to get married.
Scott was very professional and very helpful. He was a definite addition to our wedding and we highly recommend his services. The perfect officiant for us on our special day. Thank you Scott!
Scott Payne was the best officiant we could have asked for! I was lucky enough to happen upon him by searching for Austin area wedding officiants. I could quickly see from online reviews and all the amazing and helpful content he has on his website that he was, at the least, very professional. But...I soon found he was far more than that! He is truly good and an expert at this. He blessed us with the most meaningful ceremony we could ever dream of. He helps from the beginning with tips and recommendations on obtaining your marriage license, spends valuable time getting to know you and designing your ceremony to be unique and exactly designed for your wants and needs and continues providing assistance all the way to post ceremony on how to easily change your last name. We can’t believe we were blessed to find him. He’ll always be a special memory of our wedding day!
Scott was absolutely amazing! He helped the groom and bride feel at ease and our wedding guest loved him! Scott is very organized and takes his role very seriously. It was a pleasure to work with him. If you're looking for a wedding officiant he's your guy!!
What a great experience working with Scott. He made our ceremony so beautiful and he made everything so easy for us. He was a joy to work with and gave us so many helpful tips and ideas then created a ceremony unique and special for us. He even took some wonderful photos for us. I can recommend him to anyone and can’t imagine anyone else we would have rather had to officiate. He is such a kind and loving person
Scott is a great guy and a great officiant. He really puts your mind at ease during your big day. Very helpful explaining the ceremony during the rehearsal as well. Can't say enough good things about him. Thanks Scott!
Where to start? Scott was the absolute best! From our first interaction, I knew that he was the perfect man for the job. When we sat down with Scott a few months before the wedding, Scott made us feel so at ease, he is so charismatic and congenial. He also gave us so many suggestions and options for the ceremony, to where it made it extremely personalized to us as a couple. We really should pay Scott for wedding coordinator fees, because he helped out so much on wedding day. From shooing guests away from the bar and into their seats for the ceremony, to announcing the cake cutting and activities, his ability to project his voice was nothing short of astounding. Scott was so fantastic, we even had some guests try to book him for their wedding at our ceremony! My husband and I are so happy with how our wedding day went, and Scott played such an integral part in making it perfect.
Scott Payne was the minister of our small wedding which consisted of my fiancé, her son and myself. When our photographer canceled at the last moment due to an emergency, Scott rose to the occasion by recruiting a hotel employee to act as our videographer and photographer using my iPhone X. My fiancé needed assistance with her vail and flower bouquet and she didn’t want me to see her prior to the wedding, so Scott jumped in to help get her with the finishing touches! After the wedding ceremony, Scott stuck around to take more photos while suggesting different scenes and poses. He went WAY beyond the call of duty and spent more time with us to make our day extra special!
So needless to say, Scott is top notch and we are forever grateful for him. I recommend him for any wedding, large or small.
Scott was amazing! He walked us through every detail from the first phone call. He made sure our ceremony was our own and exactly what we wanted. The day of the ceremony, he spent time with each of us separately to make sure everything was going to be effortless and flawless. He truly loves what he does and it shows! I cannot recommend him enough!
I can't imagine our ceremony being performed by anyone other than Scott Payne. Our wedding felt like it was designed specifically for us with no other one like it. I've never been to a wedding in which everyone was talking about how awesome the officiant was. During the ceremony, we laughed and we cried. He involved our guests and they truly felt like part of the ceremony and our lives. There was definitely no boredom or tuning out by our guests during the ceremony. He put everyone at ease whether that be by giving an ice breaker, performing magic tricks or singing. He offered to do absolutely anything we needed. He offered me his coat in 40 degree weather, thought to fix my train when the ceremony started (I didn't have bridesmaids), had a tissue in my hand the second I started to cry and discreetly took it back when it was time for the rings. He took the time to stay for our post ceremony Christmas party and seemed to really be one of the family. He blessed our meal and performed a wine box ceremony, which was really special to us. He took as much time as needed before, during and after our wedding day to insure everything was exactly as we wanted.
Scott was great! My wife and I were unable to meet him in person before the ceremony as we live out of state but he was very accommodating and we talked through phone and email beforehand. On the day of the ceremony he walked us each through and noted from his previous experiences the potential difficulties so that we were able to avoid them. Overall he was extremely friendly, professional, and created a great experience that all enjoyed.
Scott is wonderful! He made our wedding so sweet and everything we dreamed of! He will make you laugh, feel relaxed, and reminded us to breathe. He walked us through every step and made our ceremony the most beautiful ever. Even though that might be the first time you have met him, he will make you feel as if you have known him your entire life and will leave your wedding with another member in your family! Scott is a true man of God and you will feel His presence when he recites His beautiful words. This is who you want as your officiant!
Our wedding was small but beautiful. We had it at the Chapel Dulcinae. With it being so small, our help was limited. When Scott introduced himself to me, I felt as if a friend was there and he took control. I had trouble finding our cross for the ceremony and he magically appeared with it as he found it.
When the ceremony started, we had someone using spotify for the music. He had me turn my back so I couldn't see the bride. I said "we need to play the procession song" and he motioned for the person to play it. It was nice to have that.
The ceremony itself was fantastic. Scott went above and beyond. He lightened the mood so I wouldn't cry my eyes out and he spoke beautiful words. He even helped the photographer to organize the pictures.
If you want to tie the knot, then he will make that knot a strong one by giving am excellent service for your wedding! 5 stars does not give him enough credit.
We selected Scott to be our officiant after some research and after getting to meet him in person. From our first meeting, we knew he was a great fit and we booked him to officiate our wedding on the spot! He is super personable and kind and does not make you feel alienated if you are not an every-week-churchgoer. He provided us with a ton of options to choose for to customize our ceremony and let us also incorporate elements not within his list of ideas. We were able to tweak this over the year after we first met with him as we continued to review and refine what we wanted for our ceremony. Scott met with each of us on our wedding day to impart much-welcomed advice about the ceremony. He even shared advice with my father on how to not rip off my veil when hugging me before handing me off to my groom - something none of us had even thought of!
Our ceremony was the most special part of our wedding and not only did we feel it, but our guests did too! We had so many compliments after the ceremony about how incredible it was and it really set the tone for the reception. Scott’s energy was incredible and he lightened the mood at the beginning with a couple of genuinely funny and appropriate ice breakers that eased my and my husband’s nerves. During the ceremony, he had so much perfectly-placed enthusiasm and when he announced us as husband and wife, I literally felt like his gusto and tempo were a drumroll and my heart was pounding with excitement!
Scott is such a thoughtful and wonderful human and I hope you will consider having him officiate your wedding. This is the most important part of your wedding day and he will make it more special than you can imagine!
Where to start! Scott was fantastic – cannot say enough positive things about our experience from start to finish, and hope that we can continue to visit and keep in touch with him in the future!
After meeting Scott the first time, we knew that he was truly a special guy who loves what he does and has an unmatched positive energy that is genuine and contagious! He helped us to think through and plan how our ceremony would be structured, without pushing anything on us or making s feel at all like this would not be our special day!
Leading up to the day-of Scott was communicative and checked in on us from time to time to wish us happy holidays or just see how things were going – that was so appreciated to know that we weren’t just two names on his calendar.
On the day of, Scott was early, confident and friendly. He knew most of our vendors already, and they had such great things to say about him as well, and he was accommodating and friendly to our close friends and family that were a part of the wedding.
The actual ceremony was perfect – I’m sure Scott can accommodate any tone you could ask for, but he was confident in speaking, extremely engaging, personable, and funny (not in an unprofessional or overly corny way whatsoever, just genuinely such a positive guy!). We had so many comments from friend and family that thought our ceremony truly set the tone for the night.
One more thing – Scott spent time with both my bride and I separately before the ceremony to pass on some tips, words of advice, and generally to ease some of our nervousness – with a father’s demeanor and experience, he was able to offer some invaluable tips to me for the “mechanics” of the process (e.g. the father’s handoff of the bride, the ring ceremony) and more importantly some tips to stay fully present.
Be supremely confident in Scott for your wedding, as he is truly a one-of-a-kind person and even more rare when it comes to an officiant for what is such a special day! Thank you, Scott!
My wife & I could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding than Scott Payne. From the moment we contacted him, we both knew he was the right one for us. His energy & passion for making our event special was evident in every communication we had with him. It was infectious – and got US really excited for all the little things along the way.
Before the wedding, he sent over a ton of ideas, suggestions, & example ceremonies (including non-religious ones for us), reminding us that he was there to provide what WE wanted. One of his ideas led us to take a fun day trip to Austin to acquire the much more modern & attractive wedding certificate from Travis county, instead of our local one. Days before the wedding, he also surprised us with a full translation of the ceremony into Russian for my wife's mother to follow along.
We planned our wedding ourselves. On the day of, he jumped in and helped in numerous little ways, including lining our wedding aisle with the rose petals we had set aside for that purpose, and later, giving fantastic photo suggestions. We had told him how important it was for us to begin at 11:11 am (on our 11-11-17 wedding date) and he firmly yet clearly guided everyone out to the ceremony when needed so that we began on time. During the ceremony, Scott was like an orchestra conductor, guiding everyone in taking breaths & staying present, breaking the ice with lots of humor, & building the emotion of the ceremony to a beautiful crescendo as he pronounced us man and wife. It was beautifully done.
The day was as emotional as we had wanted, for us AND our guests. Many people commented on what a great ceremony it was, & that “they were really feeling the love.” My divorced parents even had a moment (beyond their usual civility) of heartfelt appreciation for each other – something that hadn't occurred in decades. And this was due in so small part to the tone that was set by Scott Payne. Thank you Scott. Seriously, you're the best.
Scott is absolutely amazing! He made sure we both felt comfortable, and kept us calm on the wedding day. Our guests loved him as much as we did!! I would 100% recommend using Scott if you want your ceremony to be memorable!
Scott did a wonderful job on our wedding! He turned our wedding ceremony into the most beautiful moment in our life. We met Scott by chance at Chapel Dulcinea when we were checking a few wedding spots. We did not know he was an officiant until he came to us and said hello. One week later we decided to have him as our minister, and we had a long conversation at a Starbucks at Bee Cave. Scott gave us multiple choices of ceremonies and listened to every piece of our opinions. He was trying to help us and make our dream come true from the bottom of his heart. Now I believe the our encounter with Scott was God’s will, not by chance!
Scott is probably the best officiant I have seen for any wedding. He charmed the pants of of the entire wedding, and has so many excellent ideas floating around in his head, you'll never lack for things to explore in setting up your ceremony. I hope you have the energy to keep up with this awesome human.
PS: Ask about the wine box! Excellent idea!
Beautiful ceremony! We are so happy we hired Scott to be our officiant.
We used Scott Payne based off of referral and we are truly grateful that we chose him to officiate our wedding. It was completely customized to fit us perfectly. Because of him we feel that our wedding day ran so seamlessly. We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for being a huge part in our special day. Love, the Moore's
Scott was truly fantastic. We could not have had such an amazing ceremony without Scott. He put my husband and I at ease with his ice breaker, and brought in the crowd to make the night so enjoyable. He provided us with so much information that we would never have thought to go over or think of. He created a ceremony that was unique to us. We are super thankful for Scott and we HIGHLY recommend using him!
Enjoyed every moment with Scott Payne. He is glowing with gods love and joy. He is awesome!!
Scott was awesome as our wedding officiant. He was very helpful with our wedding coordinator and very well organized. There was a sense of comfort whenever Scott was around. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who might ask.
Scott Payne was absolutely amazing!! I loved how personal he got with our wedding party. Everyone thought we've known Scott for a long time. I highly recommend Scott to be your officiant!! He let me pick exactly what I wanted and I even added more stuff into our ceremony. Thank you again Scott for helping us have the best wedding officiant ever!!
