  • He did great with barely any rehearsal time. Even when things didn’t go 100% exactly as planned he was very professional and timely. 100% would recommend

  • Ben was great to work with and we were fortunate to have him marry us. He is extremely responsive, organized and reliable. My husband's family is Jewish and mine is Christian and Ben did a great job of helping us blend both religions and create a ceremony script that fit us. He gave us a lot of options and flexibility. Could not have been easier!

  • My husband and I searched for an officiant for our wedding for a while before we found Ben. We met him and it was a done deal. He walked us through everything he could say and do for us and what we could personalize during the ceremony. He was so helpful throughout the whole process. He sent us links and videos on what to do which was extremely helpful. He is so kind and it you can tell he enjoys his profession immensely. If you're looking for an officiant and can't decide, contact Ben before you settle! We are so so thankful we could find someone so perfect for our wedding! He stepped to the side for the big kiss too! One of the photographers got a picture of him to the side too and I just had to include it.

  • Ben was an amazing officiant for our wedding. He made us, our families and the guests feel comfortable with his presence and demeanor. He has a gentle yet commanding voice that is clear and its obvious he loves performing ceremonies and is well experienced in them. He provided many options for us to use for our ceremony and was more than flexible when we chose to write our own using the information he provided as a guide. His smile is infectious and overall I could not have been more happy with the ceremony. My wife and I would recommend him to friends and family highly.

  • My husband and I were married by Ben on 10/25/2019 and have received SO many compliments on our ceremony! We knew immediately after meeting with Ben earlier in the spring that we wanted him to be our officiant - he is easy going, responsive, organized and most importantly, flexible and accommodating to our wants and needs. Ben really allowed for us to make the ceremony our own but still provided us with some structure and guidance that we were looking for. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant and I highly recommend meeting with Ben if you are unsure of an officiant to use! His prices are also incredibly reasonable - especially with how responsive and accommodating he is!!

  • It was a pleasure working with Ben. He was very responsive, very organized, and very detailed. He worked with us on every aspect of our ceremony but gave us the freedom to shape it exactly how we wanted. We were nervous about choosing how it would go and how it would turn out but Ben's expertise and advice made for a beautiful ceremony. We would highly recommend Ben as an officiant.

  • Ben was our officiant for our wedding, and he did a wonderful job! He helped us create the perfect wedding ceremony script and was very easy to work with. He communicated with us leading up to the wedding day and was sure to make sure he had all the details and our wants so that the day could be perfect. Everything went very smoothly and we are so appreciative of everything Ben did for our special day! We highly recommend Ben! Thank you!

  • Ben was one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding day! When we first met with him to discuss the possibility of working with him, Ben had an hour-long facetime meeting with us to discuss everything from the way we met to the proposal and how he plans with all his couples. He was so thorough and we immediately connected with him! He sent us multiple drafts of our ceremony allowing us ample time to review them, choose readings, and make the ceremony our own. He gave us advice throughout the process, and kept us on time with reminders for getting our marriage license and even provided help after the wedding with getting our marriage license and with name changes. He was kind and helpful during the rehearsal, making sure everyone felt comfortable before the big day. Ben's experience with weddings makes him an easy choice, and he is organized and prepared for anything! If I had to do the day over again, he would be my first pick again! Thank you for absolutely everything!

  • Ben was incredible! From the first meeting, we connected with him and felt like he heard us and understand exactly what we wanted. He sent us numerous templates and to help us craft our perfect ceremony. We were able to select what we liked and then modify as needed. Ben was super responsive to our emails when we had questions, and we also loved the little extra things like a video that Ben made that outlines the exact process to get a marriage license. We probably could have just googled it, but the fact that Ben had the process already outlined for us was just one more thing we didn't have to stress about and it shows the level of professionalism and commitment that Ben exhibited from day one. We could not be happier with our ceremony and will recommend Ben to any couples!

    Thanks Joe!! It was an honor to be a part of yours and Rhett’s wedding! Working with you and Rhett on the ceremony was an awesome experience! Thanks again and all my best to both of you!

  • Ben officiated our wedding in June 2019. When we started planning in June 2018 we found Ben and from the first point of contact we could tell he was super organized. He was so helpful through out the year of planning and made it so easy for us to create a ceremony that was not only very special to us but to each of our families. The day of the wedding is a crazy & wonderful day. It is so nice to have someone as experienced and calming as Ben to have by your side that day. He made everything run so smoothly! I would absolutely recommend Ben to friends and family!

  • Rob and I are non-denominational and wanted to find someone special who "got" us and would make our ceremony warm and light yet meaningful and so memorable, for us and for our guests. We met with one other pastor and didn't feel an immediate connection. Then we met Ben, and we knew in about 30 seconds that he was the right person for us. He is so personable and it was important for him to listen to us and get to know our love story. He's also extremely organized without being bothersome (important when you're planning a big event and have a lot of moving parts), and he made the vow-writing process so easy and stress-free, yet, again, so meaningful (and fun!). Thank you Ben for officiating our special day. You helped make it what it was, and we cannot thank you enough.

  • We are both very happy with Ben and how well he officiated our wedding ceremony. He was flexible with meetings and quick to respond when we needed something. Our ceremony stories, vows, and readings were well written and well delivered - we got a ton of comments from friends and family on how good of a speaker he is after our ceremony! Highly recommend.
