  • Reverend Goyda is such a fun and friendly guy. He made our ceremony fun for everyone and got all of the guests involved. He made sure the whole day went smoothly and was very caring towards us on a day that we already felt nervous and anxious.

  • Larry made the both of us feel very comfortable and not nervous at all. He made our ceremony very personal to us. He involved both of our families since this was second marriage for both of us. He talked about bringing all these families together with our marriage. He brought both spiritual and Christian aspects together. Everyone was very impressed with our ceremony. Highly recommend.

  • We got married in June 2016 and Larry Goyda served as our officiant. He was recommended to us by family members that previous used his service. Larry is a great listener and customized our ceremony to fit our personal and spiritual values. He is professional, caring, and punctual. It was such a joy getting to know him just as much as he got to know us. He is HIGHLY recommended!

  • my husband and i worked with larry for our own wedding in 2006 and we enjoyed our experience so much, we recommended him for my husband's brother's wedding in 2015. at both very different venues, he fulfilled the kind of services we wanted to help make our wedding ceremony's so special. we were lucky that he was referred to us back in 2006 when we were looking for the perfect non-denominational officiant.

  • Larry made our special day even more special. He thoroughly took all of our information about our family and children and briefed us on the ceremony and eloquently customized the ceremony to include everyone and was very professional. I would highly recommend him to make your day special too.

  • Larry was great for our wedding at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. He was on time, professional, and patient with us during the rehearsal and ceremony. We ran late on our ceremony by switching the location at the very last minute, due to the weather cooperating, to an outdoor setting, Larry's experience and acumen lead the way allowing us to complete a meaningful ceremony that will be remembered forever. All of our guests commented on how well he spoke and how smooth the ceremony went. We are very happy that Larry was our officiant for our special day.

  • Larry was great. His standard ceremony is touching and beautiful, and can be adapted for either a secular or religious ceremony (we requested a totally secular service, and he cheerfully obliged). I love the way he emphasizes the formation of a new family, and the friendship that is the foundation of a good marriage. I'm not a very sentimental person, but the words he said at our wedding meant a lot to me. Many of our guests commented on what a good job he did. He was a very calming presence on our important day.

  • A lot of people tend to focus on the reception when planning a wedding but for me, the ceremony was the entire point of the wedding so it was extremely important to me that the ceremony be true to our relationship and be meaningful! Rev Larry is a very warm and friendly man, making him instantly likeable by guests. Our ceremony was able to be tailored to us, for example we are not very religious people so he was able to leave the religious parts out. At a lot of weddings that I've attended the rev/priest/minister tends to talk for what feels like hours about things that are not pertainent to the couple or ceremony... This is not the case with Rev Larry! Rev Larry went over everything with us prior to the ceremony (we did not have a rehearsal dinner), everything that was said was tailored to our wants/needs and it was all very meaningful! After the ceremony I got several compliments including "what a loving ceremony" and "what a beautiful reading" ! If you want a thoughtful/meaninful ce... Read more

  • My husband and I reached out to Larry after being referred to him by a family member. Neither one of us practice a specific religion - my husband was raised Catholic and my mother was raised Catholic and father raised Jewish, so I grew up learning about both religions and traditions. I was a little nervous about finding an officiant that would allow the customization I wanted in our wedding ceremony without using a Justice of the Peace. Larry was AMAZING! He was so flexible and more than willing to incorporate the special traditions that we wanted to include and he also added some unique things of his own that really made our ceremony special. He was so easy to work with and whenever I had a question, he was very responsive. We initially met with Larry and he reviewed his general ceremony and we discussed the things important to us as well. I spoke to Larry a few more times on the phone just to go over the order of everything when it was coming down to finalizing the details. I would a... Read more

  • When we chose to have a wedding outside of the church, finding an officiant that would suite us as a couple and cater to the faith of our families became a significant concern. Two independent sources recommended that we contact Rev. Larry and we are glad that we did. He came with a general ceremony plan and then adjusted it beautifully to include God and our desires as a couple while leaving allowance to exclude pieces that did not suite us. On the wedding day he added small interjections to personalize the ceremony but never went so far to take away from us as a couple and the meaning of the day. I would absolutely recommend Larry to couples looking to keep formality of ceremony without being boxed in and still allowing for that personal touch.
