  • Joe was a real joy to work with! He took the time to really get to know us - despite the fact we were states away before the wedding - and tailored his officiant speech to what made us unique as both individuals and as a couple. It never felt duplicated or forced, but personal and sincerely caring. It also helps his demeanor is so calm and respectful, I could never be nervous around him!

  • We were beyond blessed to have Joe perform our wedding! Throughout the process, we spoke a lot with him and he really took time to get to know us as a couple. He crafted the perfect ceremony that made our guests laugh and made us feel loved. He was always willing to take our suggestions into account and was very flexible with any alterations we wanted. We wanted to do a blending of the wines as part of our ceremony and have some guests read both biblical and secular passages as a perfect combination of all elements that meant a lot to us. Joe was happy to provide and many of our guests commented how beautiful of a ceremony it was! We would absolutely recommend Joe for any other lucky couple getting married.

    Thank you so much Ray! It was really wonderful to be able to perform your ceremony. I know it was scary when your original officiant was injured, and I’m thankful Mary contacted me to step in. I’m so glad to have helped!!

  • Reverend Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was quick to communicate with and you felt he was genuinely excited to get to know you. He takes his position as an officiant seriously, and strives to create a ceremony that is personal and heartfelt. We spent time with him discussing our vision for our ceremony and he asked questions to better get to know us and our relationship. He created a ceremony that captured who we are and was incredibly moving. He always made you feel like a priority. Couldn't have been happier with our choice!

  • My husband and I had Reverend Joe as our officiant this past September. We were engaged for 15 months, and during that time Joe made sure to stay responsive. Any questions we had, he would answer promptly. Reverend Joe was a pleasure to work with as he was kind, listened to us, and gave us great tips and advice. Our ceremony was written well, and we loved what Joe put together for us. He made our day even more special!

    Thank you so much Jordan! It was my honor! I truly enjoyed working with you from the first meeting to joining you both in marriage!

  • My husband and I specifically had the goal of putting heart and character into every aspect of our wedding day, and choosing Joe, who has such an abundance of heart and character (and such a willingness to share it) was an obvious right choice. We had already heard such great things from friends and family who had heard him speak, about his way with words and his talent as an orator, but we were not prepared for his commitment and enthusiasm towards helping make our wedding something really special. Joe spent over an hour with us at our initial interview taking detailed notes about how we met, the way we felt about each other, and the logistics of how we wanted our ceremony to be. He truly wanted to get to know us as a couple, and it was obvious throughout our entire experience with him that creating a unique ceremony that reflected who we were as people, instead of writing a generic speech, was something that was a real priority to him. Joe has a wealth of knowledge about different ... Read more
