  • I’m so glad we chose Pastor Chris to officiate our wedding ceremony. When we first met with him he was super engaging, told us he was excited to be a part of our day, and made us feel very comfortable with everything. After that he periodically checked in with us to see how things were going and even offered some advice. When it came to writing the ceremony, Pastor Chris had a great outline to use, but allowed us to choose how we wanted things to go and was open to incorporating anything special we wanted. At the same time, he was also able to offer suggestions for parts we were unsure about, which was very helpful. On our wedding day the ceremony went very smoothly, and afterwards several of our guests told us how much they enjoyed it. We would definitely recommend Pastor Chris to anyone.

  • We had such a great experience with Pastor Chris! He really helped us understand that it was our day and not to worry about everyone else so we didn’t get overwhelmed. We had to change our venue the month before our wedding and he was very flexible with any changes we needed to make. He did such a great job and we highly recommend him!!

    Jessica and Michael are a very kind couple, and it was great working with them. Some of their plans changed due to the pandemic, but the day of their wedding went smoothly and they both did a wonderful job. Best wishes to them!

  • I cannot say enough great things about Pastor Chris! He really took the time to make sure the ceremony was everything we could have hoped and dreamed for. He’s very personable and eased my wedding day jitters! 5 stars just isn’t enough for Pastor Chris!

  • 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 Awesome! We didn’t get to meet in person as much as we would have liked due to Covid but it didn’t matter. He made our wedding ceremony so personalized and enjoyable to ourselves and guests. I’m so thankful our wedding planner recommended him. Throughout the planning process he checked up on myself and husband to see how we were doing throughout this pandemic and he genuinely cares. We couldn’t be more happy with the person we chose to marry us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Heather

  • We were so please to have Pastor Chris marry us. From the first time we talked to him he is truly caring about you as a couple and your needs and direction for your ceremony. He provided all information needed and as I had a few versions of our ceremony he was happy to look it over and provide feedback along the way. He always asked how we were doing, if we were stressed and to make sure the most important part of the day is us. He engaged the guests, spoke about the most important part is love and provided a heartfelt ceremony.

    Heidi and Ethan were a great couple to work with. They were invested in having the ceremony reflect the two of them. They were easy to talk to, and the day of the wedding went very smoothly. I am very glad to have worked with them.

  • 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!!

    Wedding 5/26/19: I was just honored to be able to work with Shane and Shauni and make their wedding ceremony special and significant. Great couple!

  • Pastor Chris is the best. He was very responsive, professional, friendly, flexible, and fun. He was able to meet with us before we chose him as our officiant, and we had a zoom meeting after due to covid to go over all of the details. He attended our rehearsal dinner, and was on time for our rehearsal dinner and ceremony. Our ceremony was perfect. He has an amazing personality and we highly recommend him!

    Elaine and Pat were a joy to work with. I was happy to journey with them through the planning of their wedding. Their families were very pleasant to be around. They picked a beautiful location, and the wedding ceremony went wonderfully well. All the best to them.
