  • Working with Reverend Brad, was a pleasant experience. He was very accommodating and listened to our concerns, needs, and what would make our day perfect. He met with us on several occasions to work out the details and just to check in on us to see how we were doing with all the wedding planning. The day of the ceremony, was perfect. Our families enjoyed the ceremony which reflected my husband and I's personality. . While sharing love story and honoring our families cultural diversity. He offered little coaching instructions during the ceremony, and he would check on us, reminding us to breathe, laugh, and enjoy the day. His years of professionalism and experience made for an enjoyable and memorable ceremony. We had several compliments from our families on how much they enjoyed his ceremony and that it was perfect, entertaining, and romantic. My husband and I definitely recommend Reverend Brad.

  • We spoke with a bunch of officiants that just didn't fit what we were going for - a personalized and genuine experience. Brad sat down with us for around 2 hours discussing us as a couple and our love story before we even chose him as a vendor! This guy really puts his heart and soul into your wedding, and expertly crafted a beautiful script encompassing our entire love story from the time we met until then, that all of our attendees loved! I can't recommend him enough!

  • Brad was absolutely amazing for our wedding! Everything leading up to the big day was so easy, and a lot of fun. He was always so energetic whenever we met and made sure that the entire script was catered specifically for us. Brad was so accommodating and willing to hold virtual meetings since we were planning our wedding out of state. He made sure to keep our friends and families engaged from start to finish. We are so thankful we had the opportunity to meet and work with Brad! He was by far one of the best vendors to work with and we highly recommend him!

  • Deciding on Brad as an officiant is a must! My initial search was to find something unique and not the typical boring ceremony script. Brad does not disappoint. The ceremony was perfect. I cannot wait to see the love story video! Everyone was complimenting on him all night. One of my guests even asked if we knew him personally because he was so personable throughout. He was very easy to communicate with even with us being all the way in Texas (wedding was in Illinois). I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

  • Brad made this whole experience so much fun and really made it easy on my wife and I. We had meetings to go over what he does and if it aligns with what we want. He sent us questions to fill out to help with our love story, and then he allowed us to review our love story script before hand which was very nice. The ceremony was perfect! The way Brad delivered our love story was better than we imagined. All of our guests came up to us after saying how wonderful the ceremony was and how beautiful our story is. We couldn’t have had such a great wedding without Brad. Thank you for everything!

  • We had a unique situation, and Brad handled it perfectly. My fiance and I found out a couple months after getting engaged that my mom was unfortunately going to pass before our wedding. For us, it was very important that the officiant we picked was able to do a small ceremony to include her, but also the ceremony at our big day. We explained the situation to Brad before having our video call with him, and he was eager to help. We setup a time to face time (Covid) and right away we clicked. He walked us through what to expect with the ceremony, and went through all the options he had to customize it for us. We truly felt like he was trying to get to know us, and had a genuine interest in how we wanted our day to feel. The day finally arrived for our elopement ceremony, and it was so special and filled with love. Everyone was laughing, crying, and really felt a part of that special day. He was able to perfectly capture the feeling we wanted and our guests couldn't stop talking a... Read more

    Alyssa! It was such a special thing you did for your mom before she passed. How could I not be a part of making your elopement day a beautiful memory for everyone involved... especially you. I too look forward to your big celebration in 2021! Let’s turn it up to 10 in honor of your mom! :) -Brad

  • Rev. Brad was absolutely incredible to work with in planning our once in a lifetime wedding ceremony. His attention to detail and methodical approach to planning every word spoken and the general flow of the ceremony took away a lot of our stress. We found Brad extremely last minute (less than two weeks before the wedding) and he was still able to work with us and put together a truly memorable experience. Brad will not be the cheapest officiant option, but I can say with confidence that you get what you pay for. He will tailor your ceremony to exactly what you want, and include details that no other officiant would. He does all this by getting to know you, and the results are incredible.

  • Finding a good officiant was very important to my husband and I. We wanted to have someone that would tell our story to our guests and create the ceremony we dreamed of. We wanted an officiant that matched our energy and that would keep our guests awake and involved through our entire ceremony. Rev. Brad was the PERFECT fit. After many meetings with different officiants, we could not stop thinking about Rev. Brad and how awesome he would be. We obviously decided to book him and we are so glad we did! From the moment we reached out to him, Rev. Brad cared for us and wanted to make our day perfect. We had many meetings with him so that he was truly able to get to know us and our story. On our big day (April 10, 2021), our ceremony was everything we had imagined! We had so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was! Rev. Brad definitely goes above and beyond and we highly recommend him!!

  • Rev. Brad is absolutely amazing! From the moment we met he was personable and always engaged. His counseling sessions were definitely helpful and the SYMBIS is something we will continue to use. We love that he took the time to know us and never played favorites. Rev. Brad always had wonderful word of encouragement and positive energy. He created a beautiful custom ceremony with our love story that our guests truly enjoyed. Laughter, tears, and love was in the air! He allowed us to be our authentic selves and for that we will forever be grateful. We will be keeping in touch and recommend him without a doubt.

  • Rev. Brad is simply AMAZING! We could not have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. He had everyone in the room engaged, laughing, and crying. He spent the time to get to know us and went over details that we didn’t think of on our own. His emphasis on our love story made it very custom and intimate. All our guests are still talking about this ceremony and it will forever be our favorite part of the wedding weekend! If we could rate Brad 10/5, we would! HIGHLY recommend.

  • We had to pivot with covid and found Reverend Brad a few months before our ceremony. He did a wonderful job with our ceremony and coming up with the wonderful words that would be a part of our big day. He was super flexible when the plans changed and it turned out to be the perfect "minimony" with just a few family and friends.
