  • Zach and I decided to get married very last minute, after being together for 10 yrs. We decided to travel from Seattle where we live to Pennsylvania where I’m from. My grandmother just passed and we wanted to get married at my grandparents house while my grandfather was still with us, very small and intimate. It was challenging to find a pastor that would marry us without marriage counseling, or an ordained individual that would appreciate the reason we were doing this. My parents found pastor Chris! We communicated over txting And emails he was always so prompt with his responses. Pastor Chris was more then we could have asked for. He has was welcoming towards us, respectful, and genuine. He walked us through everything while asking what we would like for the ceremony. He also has a great sense of humor! I woul highly recommend pastor Chris! And if we did it all over again planned every detail months in advance I would be SURE to have pastor Chris be the one to marry us! ... Read more

  • When our daughter Sarah in Seattle told us she wanted to get married back in Pennsylvania and in front of her 94 year old grandfather on hospice, we were so excited. Then she told us she wanted to do it in three weeks, and by the way could we get the pastor because we live in Pennsylvania. Uh-oh. We found a few "ordained and willing" people online but we knew they weren't right for the occasion. We kept looking and then we saw a friendly face. Pastor Chris. We reached out and received a quick reply phone call. While talking to Pastor Chris we quickly realized he was the right person. Over the 3 weeks leading up to the ceremony we communicated to Pastor Chris by phone, email and text. We found Pastor Chris to be very fair, kind, accommodating and most of all gracious. He offered much advice to all of us and put our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding Pastor Chris arrived early and performed an excellent ceremony, the exact ceremony Sarah and her new husband Zach wanted. All in al... Read more

    Wedding on 9/28/19: working with this family was wonderful. Sarah and Zach are a great couple who clearly love each other. They were open to suggestions and ideas. And it was just a touching thing to know that they both wanted Sarah's grandfather to be part of their special day. Sarah's parents are amazing people to talk to and to get to know. A ceremony I will not forget for some time.

  • Pastor Chris was so wonderful to work with for our wedding. He spent time with us during the planning process to learn who we are to build that relationship. He took time for a rehearsal to explain the flow of the ceremony so we were better prepared for the day of the wedding. The day of the ceremony, we had to ask Pastor Chris to shorten the ceremony due to me getting sick from being nervous. He was so understanding and did a fantastic job on making sure I was comfortable and okay and shorten the ceremony as I asked. I highly recommend Pastor Chris to all my family and friends who are planning a wedding!!

  • My Husband and I chose Pastor Chris to perform our 10th Anniversary Vow Renewal. We absolutely made an excellent choice. He was easy to work with and captured the essence of who we are as a Couple perfectly! We worked strictly online, via the phone and through emails prior to our small, intimate Service. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend Pastor Chris.

    Scott and Serena are a wonderful couple and I was thrilled to be able to officiate their Vow Renewal ceremony. All the best to the two of you!

  • Pastor Chris was wonderful to work with. He was super easy to talk to and immediately put us at ease with our decision. He asked plenty of questions to ensure we got the ceremony we wanted, had a great sense of humor, and gave us two rules we were more than happy to abide by: our wedding was OUR day, and we shouldn’t be stressed on our day. Pastor Chris’s laid back style and sense of humor added to our intimate, casual ceremony, which was exactly what we wanted. Our day was perfect.

    Emily and Devin were great to work with. They were very open and honest about their journey together and their lives. It was a pleasure to work with them, to laugh with them, and to participate in their special day as officiant and to offering a blessing to the gathering of people.

  • From the day we met Pastor Chris, we knew he would be a great fit to marry us. He was so helpful during the whole planning time and stopped what he was doing to help with anything he could. During our ceremony, he kept us both calm and laughing the entire time. Pastor Chris, thank you again for everything. Mr & Mrs. Kothe

  • Pastor Chris is simple THE BEST! He married us on our first wedding and on our bigger wedding too! He also attended our big wedding rehearsal and guided everyone in the party on what they should do during the wedding. We had a traditional American wedding on our first wedding and he is awesome! Had a mix of Filipino and American on the 2nd one and Pastor Chris took time to understand the Filipino culture and how the ceremony flows. He is very easy to talk to and you will be very comfortable during the ceremony because he is such an amazing person! My husband and I definitely recommend him. When you choose him, you will have an amazing wedding, without a doubt!!!
