Dr. Graham and particularly his coordinator, Catherine Marie, were very easy to work with and very affordable. I did not have a church or anyone that could officiate our wedding, and luckily found Dr. Graham online. Catherine Marie served as our wedding coordinator as well and... Read More was a lifesaver. For our ceremony, Catherine Marie sent a script over and asked us lots of questions to figure out what style of ceremony we wanted. We edited the script with readings special to us or found online and sent back, and Dr. Graham delivered a lovely ceremony that we received tons of compliments on. I'm thankful we found these two! We also used Dr. Graham for our DJ service. He DJ's himself, and the service was less than half the going rate for professional DJ's in the area. The sound quality & announcements were not top notch to be honest, but it really didn't matter. They have almost any song you could want, played a good mix of our favorites and popular wedding songs, and everyone danced and had a fantastic time.

Our day turned out amazing even with all the little mishaps! Catherine was an angel from fixing our wedding cake to making sure the best pictures were taken. Dr. Graham even had a wonderful surprise at the end of the day. Catherine took the most amazing photos and we never felt... Read More rushed. We took our time and enjoyed every moment of our beautiful day! I would highly recommend to anyone! Our vows were so special and customized just for us!

Dr. Graham and his staff worked to make sure our wedding day was the way we wanted it. We wanted a non-traditional, non-denominational wedding so we were able to choose every reading we wanted. We ended up using Mr. Travis Jordan after an emergency in Dr. Graham's family and... Read More he did awesome. He didn't once mess up a word or saying. He was straight to the point. He showed up to rehearsal to make sure he knew what he needed to say and how we wanted it to be said. Dr. Graham and his staff are amazing and very easy to work with.

My husband and I had no idea what we were doing, when we contacted Dr. Kelsey Ministries. We knew we wanted to get married and it was going to be a small affair. We had our venue already, but we needed an officiant, a photographer, and some kind of music. Dr. Kelsey Ministries... Read More provided all that at a very affordable price. We also used his linen service and the photo booth. Our script was personalized, just for us, and fit us to a tee. We wanted our wedding to stand out and be something that people would remember. People are still talking about it and yes I have recommended Dr. Kelsey to all my friends in the planning stages. My answer is YES, YES, YES he provided us more then a wedding day, he supplied us a lifetime of memories to cherish.

We booked our wedding with Dr. Graham. All our expectations were met and exceeded. We used all of his services, Officiant, Photography, D.J., Live streaming, Photo Booth. We could not be happier. Thank you for our dream come true on a perfect wedding.


TERRIBLE!

We hired Kelsey after meeting with him and being very happy with what he promised to provide. He was quite a bit more expensive than any other officiant we had met with ($400 compared to the next highest at $200), but my husband and I aren't religious and couldn't find any... Read More others who would agree to read a speech without any mention of God. Kelsey said he would say exactly what we wanted and nothing more, and agreed to have a draft done a month before the wedding. He asked us to do some research and send him any phrasing we wanted to be included as well as any passages/readings, so we did. A month before the wedding I hadn't heard from him and emailed him to see where he was with the speech. He said he hadn't started. The next day he emailed me "our speech" which didn't include any of the passages we asked for, and was filled with religious references. I am fairly certain that he just put our names into someone else's speech because he didn't have it ready on time. When I responded and told him I was very unhappy with what he provided he wrote back saying that it was only a rough draft. I said that even if it was a rough draft it should have included all the things we had asked for, and he never responded. The next day (which was two weeks prior to the wedding) he emailed me to tell me that he was no longer able to provide officiant services at my wedding. I am POSITIVE that he bailed on our wedding because I called him out on not doing the job we were paying him for, which is ridiculous. Kelsey is unprofessional and not at all worth the excessive amount he charges. I would not recommend him to anyone.

We weren't looking for the "traditional" wedding ceremony, and found Dr. Graham via an internet search. We're so glad we found him! We planned our wedding on our own, and it really helped to have someone with his experience and knowledge around. Dr. Graham was super nice, and... Read More very easy to work with. He gave us a unique ceremony that fit our style, and that we loved! VERY highly recommended!

We didn't have Kelsey we had an associate pastor of his Sam. Sam was great. Our service was modern yet traditional and exactly what we wanted. He tailored the service to fit our needs and it was exactly perfect.

Wonderful Minister!

Reviewed on 1/10/2013 Elizabeth S

I found Dr. Graham on one of these wedding sites when I was searching for a minister to marry myself and my husband. I was skeptical at first because I had never met him and didn't know anyone who had used him before. I contacted him and it wasn't 5 minutes before he got in... Read More touch with me. My mom and I went to meet him and he was so nice and seemed to really care about what kind of wedding myself and my fiance wanted to have. We wanted a Christian ceremony and he was very helpful when it came to what to say and putting our ceremony together. On our wedding day he showed up on time, well dressed, and was very professional. He even stayed for the reception and blessed the meal (something I had not even thought to ask him to do). It was so nice and if I had it to do all over again I would still ask him to be our minister! I would recommend him to anyone getting married :)

Our wedding was beautiful and Kelsey was fantastic. He was very patients with us, especially since the groom isn't real good with English and the bride, while speaking only English is very shy and tongue tied. He helped us design the perfect ceremony, including a Sand ceremony... Read More for all our children and the Unity ceremony with our mothers. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding.
