  • Rev. Phil made our wedding unique. He gave it a special touch by customizing it to who we are and how we met. Everyone commented on what a beautiful ceremony it was. He also played the guitar and it was simply beautiful.

  • Rob and I want to thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. I love how you incorporated our answers to the questionnaire into the ceremony. It added such a personal touch that our guests all commented on. Everyone loved how warm and meaningful your words were, and the guitar music you played by Bright Eyes & Elliot Smith turned out perfectly. It was fun, and again, so personal to us. Thanks again!

  • Our venue, Perona Farms recommend Rev. Phil since he has preformed many ceremonies on site. We are not a very spiritual couple so Rev. Phil wrote up a beautiful ceremony that was very family orientated (since my stepchildren were involved). There were tears and laughs during the ceremony and I had so many compliments on how beautifully Rev. Phil did. I would HIGHLY recommend Rev. Phil Passantino!

  • Reverend Phil was AMAZING! I went with him because he had great reviews and you could even tell by his pictures that he is a genuinely nice person. He basically saved my wedding, he was able to marry us on a few days notice and was very patient with me (I ran quite late) and performed a beautiful ceremony. I always recommend him when I can. Our family and friends loved him as well, in our pictures even as he is reading, he has the kindest smile. Very professional as well, I highly recommend!

  • I can not say enough positive things about Rev. Phil. My wife and I immediately felt at ease with him. He gave us great creative control, but also gave us terrific suggestions as to what to include in our wedding. Bottom line is he was amazing! He gave us a great ceremony that was commented on by numerous guests. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND REV. PHIL if you want a wedding ceremony to remember!

  • I highly recommend Reverend Phil! He did such a wonderful job with our wedding. It was a truly special ceremony and one of the greatest moments of my life. Reverend Phil was professional and thorough but never pushy. His calm attitude surrounding the whole ceremony part of the wedding was wonderful. My husband and I both commented on this and how it helped us relax. The ceremony was the one part of the day that I wasn't worried about and wasn't stressed out at all about. I am SO thankful for that because that made me able to be more present in the moment and really enjoy every bit of the ceremony. Reverend Phil was the perfect fit for us on our wedding day.

  • One of the most nervous thing in planning my (our) wedding was going to be finding someone out of state to perform the ceremony. Someone who was nice,trustworthy, had great communications (via phone & E-mail) & within budget; All this & to perform the ceremony at an unusual/non-traditional location,too. Rev. Phil was most definitely the perfect fit, and I'm so glad as to how well everything turned out. Without him, everything would not have turned out the way it did. Especially with his guitar playing skills! Without it there would have been no music for me to walk down the aisle! Also, he's so much of a fun/wonderful person that we welcomed him to the reception, too!! It was a "Knight" to remember, that's for sure!! LOL :-) -CT natives or The "Medieval Times" lovin' couple, (A.K.A.- The "Princess Bride" and her "Knight in Shining Armor")

  • Rev. Phil was a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting he made my husband and I feel at ease and more like we were meeting with a friend! He let us know all about his background and we let him know what exactly we wanted in a service. Rev. Phil delivered exactly what we had asked for, he was funny, serious and everyone commented on how great the service was. I am so lucky to have had Rev Phil officiate my wedding and my only regret is now that the wedding is over we wont be in touch as much!! Until the christening :) I would WITHOUT A DOUBT tell all my friends to use him for their wedding ceremony!!

  • Phil made sure we were included in choosing the readings and vows for our wedding ceremony on 9/12/10. He added some personal touches and humor to our ceremony too, which we loved. He also always responded to emails along the way, which was very helpful! We would definitely recommend him to other couples!

  • Rev. Phil is absolutely amazing. We received so many compliments from our guests, everybody loved his charm and great sense of humor. He was very flexible and had great sugestions even at the very short notice and was willing to say few words in slovak language. He did a great job and it was a pleasure to work with him. Thank you so much Rev. Phil :-)

  • Rev. Phil held an outstanding service that we're still getting compliments from. It was particularly special because he helped us create a service that fit who we are and what we wanted to express in a marriage ceremony. He did a wonderful job and we were so pleased to work with him throughout every step of the way. Thank you so much, Rev. Phil!! Regards, Adam & Tara Reich

  • Reverend Phil was amazing! He was one of the very first officiants to reply to my Wedding Wire inquiry and from our very first conversation, I knew he was the one. He had a kind voice and an easy-going demeanor about him which was just the vibe I was looking for our sand & sea inspired nuptials on the pier beside the Hudson River in Edgewater, NJ. After a relaxed breakfast meeting--on Mother's Day!--with my fiancee and I, he was able to construct a perfectly balanced spiritual ceremony which elegantly reflected the spirit of love, respect, humor & friendship that my husband and I have shared throughout our union. He was timely, professional, and very courteous to all of our guests as they waited excitedly for the bride to make her grand debut. We simply couldn't have asked for nicer human being or more perfect officiant to help make our dream wedding a reality! Thanks so very much!!

  • Rev Phil has a fabulous personality! Neither my husband or I had a family clergyman so we were on the hunt for a personable clergy who would help guide us to create a meaningful, lovely ceremony. Rev Phil gives you a selection of content for each part of your ceremony so it doesn't feel cookie cutter or like you are in a factory but makes it easy for you to find something that works for you. He weaved our selections expertly into a beautiful ceremony that meant so much to the both of us. I recommend Rev Phil highly.

  • Just wanted to let you know what a beautiful job Rev. Passantino did. We had such a great time. He is so easy to talk to and made every part of our wedding great. Even our photographer said she cried at the ceremony. They were very beautiful and loving words. Rev. Phil is a must have for any event!!
