  • My husband and I absolutely adore Tom! Before our wedding, Tom asked us to meet him so that he could get to know us on a more personal level. He asked us questions, and we chatted for about 2 hours. He made us feel comfortable and we knew he would be the right fit for us. He sent us a questionnaire to be filled out separately, which he would use during the ceremony. He also read over our vows and helped us make minor adjustments. Fast forward to our wedding day, and Tom did not disappoint! He kept the ceremony to less than 30 minutes, and was able to keep the attention of our 200+ guests. He told our story so well, and was able to get the guests to really connect to my husband and me. He tied our story together absolutely perfectly and really used the questionnaire to guide him. His delivery was flawless. He also had the perfect touch of humor. We had countless guests tell us how much they loved our ceremony, and how it really captured us as a couple. They praised Tom on what a terrifi... Read more

  • Thomas was my officiant at my wedding last month, and picking him was one of the best decisions I made! I live in San Francisco, so first met Thomas through Skype and immediately knew that I wanted him to be a part of my wedding. He is extremely professional, personable, and so nice! He helped us work on our ceremony timeline and accommodated the readings we wanted to include. He was willing to tailor the ceremony to however we wanted it to be. Thomas is a great public speaker and even though we had only met him a few months before our wedding, he spoke so well about us at our ceremony, that the guests were shocked to hear that he wasn't a long time friend. I feel very luckily to have had Thomas be a part of our special day. People are still telling me how great he was! I am very serious when I say that you will not be disappointed :)

  • Our best friends were married by Tom a few years back and when my husband and I got engaged, we knew right away we wanted Tom to marry us. When we met with him, he really took the time to get to know us as people and as a couple. He was genuinely interested in our relationship and offered advice that we still use today. Tom allowed for our ceremony to be personalized to fit us. He utilized our conversation to tell our love story to our family and friends. We decided to write our own vows to one another and Tom was extremely supportive in guiding us through this. Our family and friends have raved that they've never seen a better ceremony put together. This is solely due to Tom officiating. A great officiant is extremely important to a smooth ceremony; we will remember ours forever! We highly recommend Tom!

  • The whole experience with Thomas was really professional, caring, and familiar. When we did our first meeting, we learned what we were getting from an officiant. The ceremony was more than what we could have asked for. His preparedness, knowledge, voice, and candor was excellent. The feedback from our guests mirrored our exact sentiments in what we hoped we would get from Thomas. Thank you for contributing to an amazing day and we would not have chosen anyone else.

  • Finding an officiant was an intimidating idea. They play a very important role in pulling everything together. Thomas did an amazing job. He put together an amazing custom ceremony about us and did an amazing job at the ceremony. He is very laid back and able to offer a lot of insight. He was able to balance our needs as a couple, my husband is religious and I am not, and Thomas was able to combine both of our needs and beliefs into a great ceremony. Thomas is awesome and the kind of person you want to be friends with. We could not be happier we hired him!!

  • I contacted Thomas P to inquire about officiating a destination vow renewal in Tulum Mexico. It turns out Thomas P. worked with my budget and rolled his fees into our event in Mexico making it very affordable. Prior to this I had tried to go at alone in finding my own officiant to renew our vows. All I received in return were headaches and sketchy details. Thomas P. reassured me and he and his beautiful wife appeared on the white sand beach as promised in Tulum with a bouquet of flowers for my bride. Thomas P. led an amazing vow renewal ceremony while many friends looked on. We are grateful for discovering Weddings by Thomas P.

  • Mr. Tom Potwora was without a doubt the key ingredient that resulted in a memorable, wonderful, and spectacular event! His warm, sincere, enthusiastic, and professional manner seemed to put the entire (200 plus) wedding party at ease and "in the moment" immediately when he began to speak. He was kind, patient, organized, and eloquent! I would highly recommend Tom to any loving couple who is ready to spend the rest of their lives together. He is a remarkably charismatic and genuine human being. Sincerely, Tracey Gesiriech

  • Tom was AWESOME! Not only have we received countless compliments on the ceremony, but also it is normally the first thing people bring up when we talk about the wedding. My husband and I were not super excited about the ceremony at first (we do not love being in front of large groups of people), but Tom made the process so enjoyable. He met with us for 2 hours and really got to know us as a couple. Tom was able to take our 9-year, friendship to engagement story and turn it into the personalized and unique fairytale that we see it as. He totally made the day about us and even called me the morning of the wedding to ask if we needed anything last minute. I recommend Tom for any wedding! He created a ceremony that was beautiful, memorable, relatable, and still completely us.

  • We honestly cannot say enough positive things about Thomas. We had planned to do two weddings; one simple ceremony, which was taking place with just the two of us and my now husband’s family; and at a later stage, a larger celebration with all our family and friends. We choose to meet with Thomas after a lot of research, reading reviews, and looking at videos on many different sites. After meeting with Thomas we both knew he was the person we wanted to marry us. Thomas is extremely personal, took time getting to know us both as individuals and as a couple and was genuinely interested in our story. Thomas had a wonderful way of turning our story and conversation with him into a beautiful ceremony. His delivery was perfection and the ceremony was so personal and special. Thomas managed to capture the sincerity and fun of our relationship just perfectly. After the ceremony, both my husband and I and my husband’s parents spent a significant amount of the night speaking about what a won... Read more

  • I really cannot say enough about Thomas and his role in our special day! We walked away from our initial meeting with Thomas knowing that he was a perfect fit for us - kind, sincere, very organized, and genuinely interested in "our story." He guided us through the entire process, making great suggestions where we needed help. Most importantly, he exceeded our already high expectations for our wedding day. The ceremony was unique, thoughtful, and truly memorable for us and our guests (many commented on what a great job he did). We HIGHLY recommend him. Thank you Thomas!!!

  • Thomas was an amazing officiant in every way! We knew from our first meeting with him that he was the perfect fit for our wedding ceremony. We instantly felt comfortable talking to him and he genuinely wanted to learn our story. He also offered several words of wisdom on married life, which we greatly appreciated. On our wedding day he told our love story perfectly while tying in readings and lessons for a successful relationship. He executed the ceremony BEYOND our expectations, mixing in the perfect amount of sincerity and laughter. He truly created a unique, memorable ceremony for us and we've received several compliments on how beautiful it was. We HIGHLY recommend, thank you Thomas!!

  • My husband and I wanted to have a simple ceremony. We schedule our first meeting with Thomas and it was great. We spent about 2 hours talking with him, telling our story and reflecting on the significance of our wedding and the big step we were about to take. Thomas was very diligent, taking notes at every step to make sure he could capture the essence of our relationship. We felt like talking to a family friend, someone that could project and convey our feelings during the ceremony. Thomas is very professional, always diligent to respond to any email and questions we had. He also guided us through the marriage license process, which it was very simple. He had multiple small details that made the ceremony great, like the idea of putting a flower in my husband's mother seat, as she passed away a few years back. Also, he took the time to research our wedding song. We (my husband and I) are from Latin descent and chose a song in Spanish. Thomas, looked the song up, translated the ly... Read more

  • Paul and I both immediately knew Thomas would be the perfect officiant from the moment we met him. Thomas brought our beautifully how we met and our life experiences together. So many of our guests came up afterwards and communicate to us how he managed to capture the audience through the stories of Paul and I. Thomas's personality was AMAZING, if we could give him 6 stars we would. We would HIGHLY recommend him to any couple. Thomas managed to bring tears to Paul and I in the nicest possible way. He made our special day even more special.

  • Tom was absolutely amazing. My wife and I were married at the Estancia Hotel in La Jolla in an outdoor service. The atmosphere was beautiful and Tom ensured that the matrimony was about us and included our stories in the service. We were so overly with impressed with the whole day and Tom just enhanced the experience. Sincerely, Mike Ambrose
