Anthony Montana delivered!! The one vendor my fiancee and I were worried about selecting was an officiant. Being a non-religious, modern couple, we did not want the "traditional" old man officiant, yet we definitely did not want someone who did...
n't take his/her job professionally or someone who was too over-the-top.
I was so excited to find Better Together Matrimonies on Yelp. After reading through all of the reviews, I was hopeful that he would be the right match for us, but I wanted to be sure. Anthony met with us for a complimentary consultation and right away, my husband and I loved him. Anthony is real, humble, enthusiastic, likable and you can 100% tell how passionate he is about what he does. While he is involved in the church and I'm sure he would also be an excellent fit for religious ceremonies, he did not make us feel awkward or preach on us in any way when sharing his story that led him to where he is today. Anthony actually informed us during the consultation that his wife was currently in LABOR (OMG), which shows his commitment to his clients, even though I would have 1000000% rescheduled, had I known (esp being a mother myself).
Any way, we knew we needed Anthony to be our officiant so we booked him! Anthony's assistant was very easy to coordinate with and the questionnaire they provided was simple to go through and choose our wording preferences for the ceremony. Any questions or changes we had, Better Together Matrimonies helped with no issues.
When the big day arrived, Anthony showed up promptly, asked a few questions, held on to my vows book and delivered!! His personality shined through the ceremony and my guests absolutely loved him. I think Anthony has an incredible ability to "read" a couple, even having only truly met him for the hour consultation, he was able to fool our guests into thinking he was a personal friend of ours with some of the comments he had made during the ceremony, highlighting our personality traits and how we are to each other as a couple.
I was also pleased to see selfies of Anthony with some of our other wedding vendors. Just knowing that he is friendly within the wedding industry and knows other vendors pretty well was icing on the cake for our decision to go with Better Together Matrimonies. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you so much to Anthony and his team!!!
