  • We searched for a Pastor that would officate our wedding and we came across Pastor Lawrence. After we met with him for the first time, we knew immediately that he was the right for us and we weren't wrong. It's evident that he loves God and is genuinely interested in the couples he works with. Unfortunately, we needed to change our wedding plans because of COVID and he was flexible and accomodating. We couldn't be more grateful for the invaluable wisdom and guidance Pastor Lawrence and his wife provided during our counseling sessions. On the day of our wedding, the ceremony was personal to us, beautiful, lighthearted, and touching. It was just perfect! His wife was amazing during our ceremony. She made us feel very calm and we are super grateful for her help throughout. I would definitely recommend Pastor Lawrence to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Augustina, meeting you and David was a treat....and officiating your wedding was indeed a blessing! I'm so thankful for the two of you trusting me to deliver on what you requested. Even during the Covid 19, nothing could have stopped the perfect wedding between the two of you. Congratulations and we will stay in touch! Blessings, Pastor Demetirus Lawrence

  • My fiancé and I met yesterday with Pastor Demetrius and he put our hearts at ease from the minute he began to speak. His calm persona and professionalism is a win win for us. Not to mention we were impressed with his fast response from the fist contact. Our impression of him is that this is a person who truly love what he do. He is flexible, insightful and allows his clients to take control of the vision they have for their special day. He also shows great interest in getting to know his clients while sharing aspects of his personal life stories. We can’t wait to have him officiate our wedding. We said YES to Rev. Demetrius and we couldn’t be more happier. August 15th , 2020 is going to be the best day of our life in Jesus name, Amen!

    You two are amazing! Thank you for the kind words; I'm glad you said yes to the Rev :)! It was a blessing to have met the two of you and I'm looking forward to counseling and officiating your wedding in 2020! Blessings, Pastor Demetrius Lawrence

  • When an uninvited "guest" (Corona Virus 2020) ruins your wedding plans, what do you do? You try again. After securing our marriage license on March 19th, we returned to the Justice of Peace the following day to make it official. When we arrived for our 3-20-20 nuptials, the governor had just ordered the mandatory shutdown. Feeling defeated, we were still determined to say "I Do". I found Pastor Demetrius Lawrence online and have not looked back since. The rave reviews provided a sense of comfort, calm and peace. After speaking with him, prior to our special day, I knew it was meant to be. He and his wife made our Wedding Day special and intimate. Not only did we, my husband and I...(insert smiley face with the heart eyes here)...make it official...we have made life long friends and confidants. Thank You Pastor Lawrence!

    Tamika, you and Antonio are two amazing people and I'm so Thankful that God has allowed our paths to cross!!! It blessed me to have the opportunity to be a blessing by officiating your marriage ceremony inside your beautiful home! Corona Virus couldn't stop what God had ordained to take place!! We have new friends and confidants to add to my contact list and not collect dust :) !!! God Bless the two of you.....Husband & Wife Pastor Demetrius Lawrence

  • I don’t know where to start. From the initial consult , Pastor Lawrence made us feel at ease. He was funny and aligned his message to our spiritual beliefs (we are Catholic). He offered continuous support and even offered to provide his support in the future if we ever needed counsel. He was stylish (his outfit was awesome haha), found the balance between being brief and meaningful, and made us and our guests feel he knew us forever. Thoughtful, considerate, inspiring, and spiritual are some of the few words that come to mind when I think of Pastor Lawrence. He made our ceremony a dream and we are so grateful to have had him.

  • Pastor Demetrius was such a huge blessing to have officiant our wedding. From the moment we first met him and his wife we both knew he was the one we wanted to be a part of our day. He was in constant contact with us throughout the entire time and was always available to chat. He truly is a man of God and made our ceremony short, sweet and full of love.

  • We were recently married by Pastor Lawrence. I was immediately impressed by his prompt and professional response to my initial inquiry. Once, my husband and I spoke with him on the phone, we both had the same impression - it felt as though he had been our pastor for years. Pastor Lawrence is first and foremost a man of God, a gifted servant with a warmth that exudes from him. He did an excellent job on our service — even our guests were impressed! I cannot recommend Pastor Lawrence more highly. We hope to continue to have Pastor Lawrence in our lives for years to come!

    Paula you and Udo are amazing and It was indeed an honor to officiate your wedding! You two are a beautiful couple. I definitely will continue to stay in contact with the two of you. Blessings, Pastor Demetrius Lawrence

  • Words cannot describe of explain how elated and wonderful it was to have Pastor Demetrius officiate our wedding. From the first day that we met him, We knew that he would be the one. He was professional, PATIENT, (can’t reinforce that word enough PATIENT) especially because it was my husband and I’s First time going through this whole process. Pastor Demetrius knew exactly what to say and what to do to make us feel comfortable. He took his time to get to know us and advise us as a young couple, which we greatly appreciated. There are NO COMPLAINTS at all, only overly satisfactions. Once again, Thank you so much Pastor Demetrius for going through this with us. Thank you for your patience and always available to us, for us, and for answering our millions and thousands of questions. We would recommend you and no one else a million times over and over again.

  • Pastor Demetrius has been a godsend. Having lost 3 options for pastors to officiate our wedding and being about a month and a half shy of the wedding day, I was convinced that we would be stuck. I was able to search through Wedding Wire and was drawn to Pastor Demetrius's profile. I feel that it must have been fate because he has made the process so much easier for us and he was amazing during or ceremony. It felt as if he has been our pastor for years. I highly recommend his services.

    Lechelle Thank you very much for the warm words! It was a joy as indeed a pleasure to officiate yours and Janoi wedding ceremony! I look forward to keeping in touch with the two of you in the future. God bless the two of you on your bliss marriage journey! Pastor Dr. Demetrius Lawrence

  • My wife and I decided that due to our current circumstances it would be better to have a small ceremony at our home until we could do a more formal one. We asked if Pastor Lawrence would officiate our small ceremony and not only was he happy to, he came prepared as if we were getting married on a grand stage. His level of professionalism and preparation was way more than either one of us expected. He went through the ceremony with the demeanor of a thoroughly practiced pastor, providing us with what felt like a marriage ceremony that could not have been done better in a location with 1000 people. We were fortunate to have him officiate our ceremony and when we do decide to have the grand wedding we would like, he will undoubtedly be the person we call to preside over it as well!

    Aaron Thank you for your kind words! It was truly a blessing to officiate your wedding in your home! I'm looking forward to the two of you having a wonderful marriage journey. Blessings, Pastor Demetrius Lawrence
