  • Thanks so much for everything, it went great and everyone thought you playing the guitar before and after was awesome. I'll definitely recommend you to anyone I know getting married, or anyone who would need an officiant for anything. Thanks again.

  • Thank you so much for performing an amazing ceremony. Our friends and family commented on the "fun and light-hearted" ceremony, which is exactly what we were going for. Thanks again for all of your help and execution of such a memorable ceremony. We are truly appreciative.

  • Phil was great to work with and he did a great job officiating! He was responsive with being able to meet with us, emails, and reassuring me with any wedding day worries I had. There was one particular moment during the ceremony where we had our 10 year old niece do a reading and when she was done Phil had said "Nothing is more special than being blessed by a child." He had everyone in tears! We will remember that particular moment forever. Thank you for everything!!

I just want to thank you so very much for being there on our wedding day. Everyone has been calling me and telling me how beautiful the ceremony was and how lovely our vows were. It was more perfect than I ever expected and I couldn't have asked for a better Reverend to marry us. Thank u again!!!

Rev. Phil was an amazing officiant! I just want to thank him from the bottom of my heart for such a beautiful, heart felt ceremony!! I can't tell you how much it meant to us. I also can't tell you how many people came up to me to tell me how it was the "best ceremony" that they have EVER been to and just how absolutely wonderful he was. It really was a countless amount of people who said that to me! I definitely recommend him for creating such a beautiful ceremony that we will always remember. He allowed us to personalize the ceremony in a way that was so touching and so "us". It was perfect! Thank you again!

  • Finding an officiant was not one of my favorite tasks during the wedding planning process. I did not know what to look for in an officiant. I am Filipino and Catholic, and my husband is Chinese, but does not have a religious affiliation. I know that a blessing was important for me and my parents, and some Filipino traditions, such as the cord and veil ceremony. I found Rev. Phil here on WeddingWire, and he responded to my inquiry right away. After meeting with him and learning of how he customizes the ceremony, we knew we had to ask him to be our officiant. After the wedding day, our guests asked us how we found our officiant because they were impressed at how personal and beautiful our ceremony was. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get married.

    Thanks Marie! All the best to you!

  • Rev. Phil was great to work with and my husband and I are so glad we chose him to officiate our wedding! Phil is extremely personable and was always very responsive. We booked with him about a year before our wedding, so you can imagine I had a lot of questions come up in the mean time :) all of our guests complimented his delivery of the ceremony and it was great to have him be part of our special day!

  • My husband is from Spain so we wanted to do our ceremony in Spanish and English and luckily we found Phil who is bilingual! Our guests loved that we incorporated both languages into our ceremony. He also gave us examples of different ceremonies as well as typical Spanish wedding traditions. We ended up mixing in some of the Spanish traditions making our ceremony really unique! Overall I would definitely use Phil again and recommend him to all of my friends!

  • Rev. Phil was the perfect officiant. He made sure everything went just as I wanted. He found me on the day of my wedding to get my marriage certificate done so that I did not have to worry about a thing. Afterward he made sure everything was sent off as required. I did not have to worry or stress about anything at all. He was very friendly and really listens. He will make sure your day is a perfect as can be.

  • Rev. Phil was our officiant and provided the music. Our ceremony and the music was beautiful and everyone commented on how much they loved it. Even a random hotel guest stopped me and asked about the music after the ceremony! We could not be happier and are so glad that we found him! Thank you again!

  • We absolutely loved Revered Phil and wouldn't have chosen anyone else to perform our wedding ceremony. We met with a bunch of people and were starting to feel hopeless until we met with Rev. Phil. We knew right away that he was the right person for the job! His prices were a little higher than the other officiants we had met with but it was all well worth it as he was great! He was available by email or phone as often as we needed leading up to the wedding. He was able to do a Skype rehearsal for us since we were getting married off-site and he was extremely flexible with the time as I ran into some issues that day and was running late. His laid-back and calming personality was exactly what I needed as it kept me calm and worry-free as well. The day of he was a great help in keeping order and once again keeping everyone calm as we ran into a few snags. He performed a beautiful customized ceremony and we really felt like he knew us by the time our big day came. Rev. Phil comes highly re... Read more

  • Phil Passantino is wonderful! He was our officiant for our non-denominiational ceremony and he was exactly what we wanted. He was light and funny but also serious when necessary. He met with us several times before our ceremony to discuss all the details and put us at ease. We got many compliments from friends and family and couldn't have been happier with his performance.
