  • Rev. Ernie was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He was extremely responsive, thorough and organized, and he followed through on all the little details that made our ceremony special and personalized. He also has a very loving demeanor which brings warmth and kindness to his delivery. We felt very comfortable with him from the very first email exchange all the way through his very prompt filing for our certificate. We would definitely recommend Rev. Ernie as a wedding officiant!

  • No one could have been a more sincere, thoughtful, or responsive officiant at our wedding than Reverend Ernie. From our first contact, he was "into it", made us feel excited, and did his utmost to prepare and deliver a warm, caring, and relevant ceremony for our big day. He made something already special into a very special memory that we will never forget and cannot thank him enough for.

  • From the minute we met Reverend Ernie, my mom, sister, now husband and I felt as though we had known him for years. His experience, candor and flexibility were the main reasons by now-husband and I chose him to be our officiant. We chose his most customizable package as we wanted a non-denominational, non-religious ceremony that incorporated customized vows and love letters that my husband and I wrote to one another, and didn't hear until the ceremony. It was amazing to craft our ceremony with Ernie and work through the little details to make it so personal and so special. Our guests could not stop raving about how intimate and love-filled our ceremony was and that is 100% due to the ability to make it OUR ceremony with the help of the Reverend AND his delivery. Our guests asked us if he was a family friend, or if we'd known him for long, and I thought the same during the ceremony, it was all just so personal and perfect. The ceremony is the most important part of your wedding... Read more

  • We were traveling from Michigan to New Hampshire to be married, so had to work "long-distance" to make the necessary arrangements. It was our good fortune to find Rev. Chiradonna, who I can truly say went out of his way to assist us in our planning. He helped us through the licensing process, suggested possible locations for the service, then prepared a truly moving cemermony that was far beyond our expectation. Rev. Ernie went above and beyond to make our day special and I honestly cannot say enough about this kind and caring man.

  • All of these rave reviews are true. Rev. Ernie was an absolute joy to work with. Like many of the other brides have said, my now husband and I knew instantly when we me with Rev. Ernie that he was exactly what we were looking for. Our ceremony took place outside and I was worried that it wouldn't have an organized structure or feel complete. But Rev. Ernie gave us so many great ideas that we are still receiving compliments, as I expect we will for a long time to come. We first met at a local coffee shop where he went over what we could expect from him and what he also expected from us. The rest of our communication was through email, which is perfect when you work full time and live far away. Rev. Ernie was always quick to respond, by one of the best vendors we communicated with, which makes everything less stressful. He also came to our rehearsal and helped us navigate through the ceremony, which was a huge relief and took the pressure off so we knew what to expect. I can't say... Read more

  • Rev. Ernie did an amazing job with our ceremony! He really took the time to personalize it for us, even encorporating some elements of spirituality that were new to him. The end result was a beautiful ceremony that really felt like "us". A friend who has been to many weddings said it was the most beautiful ceremony she had seen. Our wedding was a little tricky to plan since we live in Maryland and were getting married in NH but we planned everything with Rev. Ernie over email and it worked great! He was also wonderfully responsive via email, always getting back to us within a day or so and was very patient with the few revisions we wanted to make. I definitely recommend Rev. Ernie to any couple. You will not be disappointed!

  • Reverend Ernie was by one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! He did an unbelievable job from day one working with us. We found him online and loved what other people had to say about him so we set up a time to meet him at a local coffee shop. Conversation with him is easy and he had us tearing up in the first meeting just talking about some great ideas for our ceremony. He has flexible package plans and for an extremely reasonable price he absolutely customizes every portion of your wedding ceremony. We spoke quite often mostly via email due to crazy schedules and he was always prompt with his responses. He had great suggestions and such a way with words. The ceremony itself went so smoothly, I surprisingly wasn’t that nervous! Reverend Ernie guided us every step of the way during the ceremony and he was even forced to do some improv but you would never know it wasn’t part of his plan, (we didn’t even know until after). We did a sand ceremony and there was accidentall... Read more

  • Reverend Ernie performed our wedding ceremony and it was absolutely nothing short of perfect! From our first phonecall i knew he was the right man for the job! He worked with me to customize a ceremony that our wedding guests are still raving about. My husband has a huge fear of being the center of attention, so Rev. Ernie worked with us to make sure it included all the traditional and religious touches we wanted to include with a modern twist, without being too long to scare off my husband :) You can tell he absolutely loves what he does, and it shows! I would absolutely recommend Reverend Ernie over and over again!

  • About 30 seconds into our first conversation with Reverend Ernie, my husband and I knew we had found the person we wanted to help us craft our wedding ceremony. Having been a guest at many, many weddings myself, I often felt that the ceremony was the "boring part" that you had to "get through" until the real fun of the reception began. We were determined that this wouldn't be the case with our ceremony. I consider it a huge stroke of luck (or fate) that we found Reverend Ernie, because he created and delivered a moving, heartfelt ceremony that was the exact opposite of standard-issue. He encouraged us to be as involved as we wanted to be — to be creative; to be unique; to be thoughtful — and that's what, I believe, shone through during our ceremony. My husband and his family are much more religious than I am, and Reverend Ernie was able to beautifully (and so, so seamlessly) combine his respect for the religion of his youth with my more open-minded sense of spirituality.

  • Rev Ernie is a warm and caring person. We eloped, driving in from NY state and he couldn't have been more accomodating. He made our day one we will always remember by just being excited and happy for us and sharing in our joy. We didn't feel like we were married by a complete stranger. Thank you Rev. Ernie!

  • Ernie officiated our wedding. There was not a dry eye in the place!! It was so romantic and EXACTLY what we wanted. He is a very caring person and has no problem hearing something you don't like in the ceremony and changing it for you. Very easy to talk to. After the ceremony when we were going table to table, every person said to us that they "didn't know they would need tissues for the ceremony". Everyone was pleasantly surprised how much they enjoyed the ceremony and said it was one of the first times they actually paid attention at a wedding ceremony and said it was one of their favorite parts of the whole day (most said they usually really only enjoy the reception). So, I would HIGHLY recommend him!! Thank you for such a memorable day!!

  • It was such a pleasure having Reverend Chiaradonna as our wedding officiant. He is the sweetest guy and I felt like he truly enjoyed helping us to create the perfect ceremony for us. He was helpful with making suggestions for us when asked and he performed the ceremony beautifully. I got so many compliments on how lovely and personalized the ceremony was and all 4 of our parents had tears in their eyes!

  • From the moment we met Ernie we knew he was the one to marry us. Our wedding was not an average run of the mill ceremony, we had a Scottish wedding and included our 3 sons , we had many personal touches that Ernie took a hold of with great proffessionalism and joy. Evereyone could see his honest and unique touch to our ceremony. Ernie was right on with his communication, helping us understand when we had questions and "creating" our individualized ceremony. Together we worked well, We were fortunate to have found and honored to have had Reverend Ernest Chiaradonna for our special day...... "Ernie, we will forever remember you in our minds as well as in our hearts." Jen and B.J.

  • Reverend Ernie was a wonderful wedding officiant. He really listened to me and to what my husband and I wanted, and he delivered! In my case, this was not easy because my husband and I wanted to have a wedding that had a lot of humor in it, but was still meaningful and sentimental at the same time. Tall order? Well Reverend Ernie pulled it off beautifully. I received a LOT of compliments about my wedding ceremony, which I have to admit I really didn't expect to. I know through conversations with people that it's usually the reception that people remember and look forward to, but in my case our guests remembered our ceremony just as much as our reception! My uncle came up to me directly after the ceremony and told me how much he enjoyed our ceremony and that is was the best one he had ever been to! You will love working with Reverend Ernie; he will give you a wonderful wedding ceremony that truly reflects you and your spouse. I highly recommend him.
