  • Reverend Rob McMahon was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding. We only met twice on the phone to discuss the ceremony before the big day, but he never failed to make us feel comfortable and confident with how our wedding day would run. Every single guest we have spoken to after the wedding, over a week ago, has mentioned how beautiful his ceremony was, and that they thought he was amazing. He took our love of football and our dog Shay and made a personal sermon to match our personalities perfectly. He added a little humor, and dealt with the freezing cold weather with us. Thank you Reverend Rob and Frank for making our day so special, and a day we will remember forever. It meant the world to us and our families!

    Dearest Paula & Shawn, Believe me when I say that I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of preparation and celebration ... truly a beautiful gathering of love and laughter. Remember ... I don't leave a couple. I will always be here to celebrate with you and to console you. Thank you for the text message letting me know that you are safely home from your Honeymoon and that your guests are still talking about that beautiful day and evening. Peace & Love! Rev. Rob & Frank Fiore

  • We were married this past Saturday and we woke up to torrential rain. The first phone call of the day was Reverend Rob and he was calling to make sure we were okay and to offer calming words and positivity regarding the forecast for the day. It was the phone call I didn't know I needed until it came in. After speaking to Reverend Rob I instantly had a calmness wash over me. Due to the size of our bridal party we opted to do a brief walk through of the ceremony after our first look. Reverend Rob and Frank arrived early and made magic happen, our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and flawless. We received so many compliments on how extraordinary it was. He exceeded all expectations we had for our wedding day and we are so happy and blessed to have had him part of our day, his kind actions and words will never leave us.

    Dearest Amanda & Lou, Thank you so much for your kind words and outstanding hospitality. Frank & I truly enjoyed all of your guests ... and of course you! It really was a magical day filled with all sorts of little surprises! I am truly honored to have become a part of your life, and I don't leave my couples. I will always be here for you.

  • Rev. Rob was everything we could have asked for and more! The first time we spoke we were on the phone for an hour making sure he got to know us as a couple and finding out exactly what we wanted our ceremony to be. I can’t say enough how blessed we feel to have had such a wonderful officiant to pronounce us husband and wife. We didn’t have to question for a single second if our ceremony would be what we wanted- because Rev. Rob made sure we were happy. His assistant Frank, was also wonderful. He provided me with countless emails containing advice and information that we will need for our wedding day and for our marriage together. We couldn’t be happier with our choice :)

  • Reverend Robert was absolutely fantastic! Our guests could not stop raving about how wonderful our ceremony was. We laughed, we cried, and we laughed some more! You absolutely will not regret choosing the Reverend as your wedding officiant. He and his assistant Frank are so personable and professional, you'll feel like you've known them your entire life. Thank you so much for being available for wedding!

  • Rev. Rob listened to exactly what we wanted. He made our ceremony fun and memorable. Our guests keep saying how amazing he was as he got the whole audience engaged and involved in our ceremony. He walked around and did not just stand there and read from the book. It was a cold day and he sped up the process as we wished without missing a beat or making the ceremony feel rushed. We are so grateful and recommend Rev. Rob and his assistant!

  • Reverend Robert was absolutely amazing! We found him only 2-3 months prior to our wedding (so last minute! *face palm*), but he was able to come through for us! He was actually supposed to be going on vacation the weekend of our wedding, but plans fell through. Otherwise, I don’t think we would have been so lucky. We got so many compliments on Reverend Robert’s ceremony. He was so down to Earth & personable. We were going for a genuine, yet laid back, informal ceremony & he certainly delivered! We couldn’t have asked for anything better, even if we did plan ahead like we should have! He tailored the ceremony specifically to us & our preferences. Book him while you can!

  • We found Reverend Rob on WeddingWire and as soon as we had our first phone call we knew that he would be our wedding officiant. Reverend Rob was responsive and responsible. He cared about us and tailored the ceremony to best suited our need. We needed a bilingual ceremony since my parents were from China. Reverend Rob sent me the ceremony script a few weeks before the wedding to allowed time for me to translate. When the details of translation were changed due to the switch of translator, Reverend Rob also took time to revise the script to make sure the ceremony wouldn't get too long. He also called our venue to inform them about the bilingual ceremony and the possibility of running overtime. When he was not able to reply emails, he explained the situation and he was always reachable by phone. He and his assistant arrived at the venue an hour before the ceremony and communicated well with our translator. The ceremony was concise, sweet, and of course bilingual. It was exactly what we w...

  • Rev Rob was THE BEST! My husband and I are two different religions so we decided to do a nondenominational ceremony. We also wanted a laid back and relaxed atmosphere and he provided that mix perfectly. Our guests cannot stop raving about how much they enjoyed his ceremony and how perfect it was. With his assistant Frank we can rest assured all the proper paperwork will be completed and submitted. Thank you both!

  • Hey Reverend Rob!! I just want to thank you for all of the help and support that you and your assistant Frank gave us! I am thankful that Frank carries a sewing kit with him!!! We had SO many compliments from our guests!! I HIGHLY recommend you and thank you for stepping in when our Pastor was called away for a family emergency. We don't know what we would have done without you! You were amazing and truly eased our nervousness by being here for us, and we look forward to seeing you again when we return home. Maria & James

  • Reverend Rob is amazing!!! We live a few hours away but we had no issues communicating with him via phone and email. We were thrilled with his modern way of speaking and he threw in some special surprises for us. Our guests loved him and said that he was one of the best parts of our wedding! He was so professional but sweet, he put us at ease from start to finish. He was also great at cueing certain details during the ceremony (like quietly reminding me to take my bouquet at the end of the ceremony, facing a certain way, moving out of the way for our first kiss for photos etc.) I can’t even tell you how helpful that was to us! His assistant Frank was so helpful in providing important info like what to expect the day of, clear instructions on how to change your name, etc. They are a great team! Not only is Reverend Rob an incredible officiant, he is a great guy in general. We had mentioned that we sticking around the poconos for our mini moon and he emailed us a nice list of things to...

  • The ceremony was beautiful. Too long than we asked for. And did not show up to our rehearsal and did not notify us he was not coming. Also did not show up to the ceremony early as he promised because he could not come to the rehearsal. And he promised he would talk to each of us personally beforehand and he did not, he sent his assistant. He showed up to the ceremony 20 minutes before it started. And weeks before the ceremony I contacted him several times with no reply.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Nicole, The Agreement states that I do not perform at rehearsals as I would have to charge you $400 to cover any wedding that I would miss the night of your rehearsal. Also, there is nothing for me to do at the rehearsal. Your coordinator handles that. I was ot allowed even near my house. I lost your entire wedding ceremony that day, yet I was able to pull together from memory what we had discussed and gave you exactly what you wanted. I telephoned both you and Kevin early on the morning of your wedding to check on your needs. I am well known for my over-the-top attentiveness. I was there with my assistant 30 minutes early - highly unusual as most officiants show up a few minutes before. By all rights, I could have sent a replacement and stayed home to deal with the fact that my family home of 80 plus years next door to the massive fire was at risk of burning and needed to be kept under a fire hose. I explained to you that, the day before your wedding, Pocono Manor burned to the ground. I had an office there and lost everything. That fire burned for three days with Hot Spots. In all modesty, I think that my composure was rather impressive considering the stress that I was under. In fact, just before I took my place at the altar, my assistant came up to tell me that the Fire Department sent me a message stating that the brush alongside of my house had caught fire. I think I covered up my stress quite well. I suggest that you view this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyj47X9FxcQ The ceremony was just over the 30 minutes that we agreed upon, due to the fact that you added personal vows. You even asked my assistant at the last minute if it was okay for you to add personal vows to the ceremony. Also, the Unity Candle added time. Couples also need to understand that a venue with a long walk to the the altar, combined with 7 Groomsmen and 7 Bridesmaids, 2 Flowergirls, ad a Ring Bearer ... well, that takes some time to march everyone in. The ceremony does not "start" until the Bride is in front of me. I do my absolute best to provide everything that the couple desires, plus I add some personal and romantic touches. I understand that it was cold outside, but that's the risk that you risk that you take with an outdoor wedding in November,, and I really can't control that aspect. You contracted with me for my care, extensive experience, and supreme quality. I delivered that. My assistant always meets with the couple so that I can prepare for the ceremony. For example, there was no altar set up for me and I had to track down someone to move a high top table to the site. Most officiats don't offer the luxury of an assistant to handle the last minute needs of the couple. As I recall, I received numerous compliments and raves from every guest with whom I encountered, with several seeking me out to offer their compliments. I even managed to include your dog in the ceremony with a little story. I wish that you would have taken this up with me privately. The devastation of the fire was harmful enough. That itself warrants a 5 Star. I would never put someone down for suffering through and working through a tragedy.

  • We hired Reverend Rob months ago. Our wedding date was June 22, 2019 and Reverend Rob NEVER showed up or called. He emailed me three days after the wedding to apologize... his reasoning he didn't show up was because he FORGOT. I do not recommend using Reverend Rob unless you want to be let down.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Brianna, I am so sorry that this happened. I had no communication with you in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Your cell phone is not set up to receive voicemails. I was able to locate your telephone number two nights before and attempted to phone, but I could not leave a voicemail. I had a substitute priest prepared for you a couple of months ago when I knew that I might be otherwise occupied with my church. The other priest had my file for your wedding information, and he was hospitalized shortly before your wedding and unconscious. I did not forget, I was left blind by you not contacting me leading up to the wedding date. I know that brides are busy with tastings, seating charts, cakes, selecting music, flowers, dresses, pre-wedding parties, and such. I'm quite certain that you were in constant touch with all of them. While you are busy trying to damage my character and integrity, I would highly suggest that you inform other brides of the importance of the ceremony and to be in touch with their priest to be certain that everything is in order. I'm also sure that you were in close touch with your vendors and the venue. I did the honorable thing by refunding your deposit and also went so far as to pay for the meals for my assistant and myself. I even went so far as to offer for the last minute officiant that you had. I wish you well in life, The Reverend Robert M. McMahon
