  • Reverend Sam is great! Sam was very flexible with our nontraditional ceremony, on short notice. We got in touch with him just over a month before our wedding; on top of that, we wrote our own highly untraditional ceremony, and gave him the script the week of the wedding! He quickly provided helpful feedback, and helped us to feel at ease during a busy final week of planning. He also did a great job with the ceremony itself. He read our ceremony naturally, clearly having practiced. He also spoke clearly and loudly so that everyone could hear. Sam was professional throughout. In addition to the comments above, he got on the phone with us right away to explain how things work, and helped us to determine what type of package we needed (elopement vs. wedding). He provided a few files with ceremony tips, as well as six different example ceremonies for us to consider. The whole time I felt he truly wanted the best thing for us. We were so pleased with Reverend Sam's services, and... Read more

  • Sam the marrying is amazing!! We had a destination wedding so we didn’t get to meet him until we walked down the aisle, and the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. He is very professional and HELPFUL! I had no idea how to put a ceremony together and he helped 100% while I still got to customize it and make it our own. Sam is also great at telling you how to get your marriage license and then takes care of it for you after the wedding. Which helped us tremendously! Anyone would be lucky to have Sam marry you!

  • Rev. Sam officiated my wedding in Athens, GA on January 5. It was such a beautiful ceremony. Rev. Sam was very helpful and easy to work with. We were able to do premarital counseling through him, and customize our ceremony to be meaningful to us and our families. I highly recommend Rev. Sam!

  • Truly a blessing Rev. Sam was for us - he is incredibly professional, truly personable, and overall a great human. We loved how kind he was to us through our journey - from helping to find the most perfect wedding coordinator (as he worked with her in the past) for the day of to helping us create a ceremony that was unique to us - giving ideas and guideance based off of his past experiences. He is honest and truly a blessing of a man. Please use Rev. Sam for your wedding journey

  • RevSam was a lovely addition to our wedding experience. He was kind and professional. So experienced, and so accommodating. He's got vast experience and has seen everything under the sun - nothing surprises him. And yet he treated us like our wedding mattered. He remembered every detail, and went above and beyond our expectations. Sam has multiple service components to customize into a unique service. He also graciously incorporated our own elements. We are thrilled with his work at our wedding, and cannot recommend him highly enough to other couples. Thanks, Sam! Hugs from Jen and Britt

He has a lot of experience which shows leading up to wedding day, at rehearsal and on the Big Day. He helps make sure everything runs smoothly. He was very flexible with options for our wedding ceremony and very affordable considering what all he helps with. Thank you Reverend Sam! Anita & Ben

  • Sam was one of our favorite people to work with throughout our wedding planning process. He is prompt, compassionate, flexible, and exceedingly knowledgeable. He gave us extremely detailed instructions during rehearsal (how I should pass off my bouquet, how my husband should hold my hands, what to do in case the rings won't go on, etc.) We didn't have to remember a thing in our nervous state, because Rev. Sam gave us subtle cues throughout the ceremony. This man has performed close to 1,000 weddings, and there is nothing that he can't prepare you for. I guarantee your ceremony will be flawless if you chose Reverend Sam, the Marrying Man.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks, Faith. It was a lovely ceremony and you were a lovely couple!

  • Rev. Sam was amazing to work with!!! He was very experienced, walked you through the process very thoroughly and gave you a lot of options. With my busy schedule, we were not able to meet until the day of the wedding and it was like we had known each other the whole time. Very professional, very articulate with the ceremony and so friendly. We enjoyed getting to choose how our ceremony went and we felt confident in Sam to deliver it that way. It was a ceremony I'll never forget. Thank you Sam for everything!

  • Choosing Rev. Sam was a one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning process. He was flexible in making time to meet and quick to respond to emails, answering every question we could think of and asked us questions we hadn't yet thought of to make sure that our ceremony was absolutely perfect and exactly what we wanted. He was patient with us at our rehersal dinner and with just a few run throughs our whole party was confident and the ceremony went flawlessly day-of. I could not recommend him enough.

  • Rev Sam was absolutely masterful in officiating our ceremony. He provided support and suggestions as needed and in a prompt and courteous manner. We could not have asked for a better officiant. Whether we spoke on the phone, in person or thru email, Rev Sam was always super helpful, upbeat and excited about our wedding. There honestly could not have been a better person to officiate our wedding, we are honored he stood with us and married us
