  • Reverend Russ was a pleasure to work with! We met with him twice before the wedding, and we had no doubt in our minds that he would provide a wonderful ceremony for us. He was professional, knowledgeable, and performed our ceremony with a traditional yet light-hearted feel. Also, we wanted our ceremony to be 20-30 minutes long, and our ceremony was exactly 20 minutes - perfect!! Thank you so much Reverend Russ, you made our day so special.

  • We had never met with Reverend Russ before our rehearsal, except for a short interview on the phone. His non denominational service was so amazingly personal, no one knew we had no prior relationship.

  • Impeccable. Wide variety at our ceremony from the very religious to the not-so-much. From the carnivore to the vegan. Russ set a beautiful balance of light humor and solemnity and made sure the ceremony was meaningful and sacred. Would recommend him with no hesitation.

    You two are a great couple and it was my honor to preside over your nuptials.

  • If you are looking for a great pastor to do your wedding, look no further. Rev. Russ performed a traditional religious wedding for us and everyone in attendance was impressed with the ceremony. We had a Doctorate Pastor in attendance and he was impressed with the ceremony and the words spoken. If you are looking at having a traditional religious ceremony, he is the guy to do it. He is very nice and personable and can help you through all the nuances of the ceremony. I would rate him 10 stars if I could add more stars.

    Most wonderful words. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your big day. Be good to each other. Blessing always, in all ways

  • Rev. Russ was AMAZING! We had such an amazing experience. Everyone kept asking how long we'd known him for because only a close family friend could have nailed our personalities so well! After one meeting Rev. Russ we knew there was no one else that could preform our ceremony and we're so glad we found him! Our ceremony was PERFECT. You won't regret your decision to call Rev. Russ!

    You are too, too kind. Enjoy your lives togeather. Blessings always, in all ways.

  • Rev. Russ was simply amazing. He brought a calm demeanor to our wedding day and kept everyone laughing with his timely sense of humor. Everyone was complementing him and wondering where we found him. Hopefully I'll never have to get married again, but if I did I would ask Russ to be the one to do it.

    Thank you for the kind words. Have a blessed life together and enjoy that wine in five years!

  • Reverend Russ was amazing! From the start he took the time to talk to us and get to know us. He had a lot of great ideas for readings and the ceremony in general. He arrived well ahead of time for both the rehearsal and the ceremony. We had a lot of people come up to us afterward and ask "where did you find him!?". I'm so glad our venue recommended him!

    Thank you for the glowing review. I'm a lucky guy as I get to spend time with great couples,like you two, and help make that special day specialer (new word).

  • Wow!! Rev. Russ was great. He was EXACTLY what we needed! Rev. Russ took the time to get to know us as we discussed working with us. He shared his experiences with us and he knew how to keep things light and easy going. He was very flexible and we chose him over an officiant from my wife's home church. At the rehearsal and ceremony he arrived early, was well dressed and looked the part very well. But again, he kept things light. At the rehearsal he took over and gave direction where needed without stepping on any toes. We were able to keep our crying to a minimum thanks to his personality during the ceremony. Rev. Russ was perfect for us and our ceremony! Thanks so much!

  • Reverend Russ did an A+ job at officiating our wedding. We filled out his detailed form a few months before the wedding to give him an idea of our vision. About a week before the wedding, we had an in depth chat with Russ to give him a better idea about who we are as a couple and what we wanted from the ceremony. We were feeling a lot of pre-wedding stress from all the many last minute things on our checklist. After talking with Russ that day, we were so relieved that we chose him to officiant. He was warm, funny, and understood exactly what we wanted. Russ came to our rehearsal (and was probably the only person on time for that, including the wedding party). He put us at ease and got us ready for the big day. As an officiant, he gave the ceremony a great tone of love and community with just the right amount of humor (but not too corny). He prepared a beautiful yet to the point and brief ceremony that was exactly what we envisioned. We definitely recommend Rev Russ for anyone looking ... Read more
