The thought of finding an officiant was nerve wrecking – a stranger would play such an important role in our wedding, and in turn, our lives. After much research, we found 5 officiants we were interested in meeting. By chance, Father Vince was the first one available for a... Read More call and we never turned back. We knew immediately that he was the one. Even over the phone, he was very personable and made us feel comfortable. There wasn’t an awkward moment, and we knew there wouldn’t be one at the ceremony either. Its worth noting that our venue, the Liberty House, recommended Father Vince and it was further comforting that he had done many ceremonies there. We met Father Vince twice at his home to get to know one another and discuss our relationship. He provided thoughtful input, guidance on traditions, and wrote a beautiful ceremony. The day of, he arrived early and coordinated with the venue and other vendors seamlessly. During the ceremony, he was kind, well-spoken and funny. We had an unusual blistering 95 degrees day, and he kept the crowd going even though he himself was covered in sweat. In fact, several guests made it a point to mention how great he was! We are so grateful and lucky to have found Father Vince; he truly made our wedding ceremony special!

If you have found Father Vince and are considering having him officiate at you wedding, LOOK NO FURTHER, and, run (don’t walk) to book him now! When Laura and I first started looking for an officiant, I assumed it really didn’t matter who we got so long as at some point he said... Read More “you may now kiss the bride.” Let me just say, how wrong I was. Father Vince made all the difference, and our guests are still commenting on what an incredible ceremony he performed. Yes, Laura and I were there too, but the combination of Father Vince’s warmth, wisdom, and message as we blended our two families was perfect. Naturally, one might ask “why,” and “what made Fr. Vince so good?” So let me explain: Prior to meeting, "Vince" and his wife, Christine, made a point to e-mail extensively with us regarding who we were, and what we were looking for in our ceremony. Then, with a template in place, we discussed at length what our ceremony would be like, family participation, and how much spirituality and religion we wanted to incorporate into it. Vince met with us at home so he could learn even more about our lives. We sat like old friends and discussed how we met, our circumstances, and hopes for the future. He took the time to take notes, ask questions, and perhaps, most importantly, to become our friend. He demonstrated that he really cared, and we felt like we were talking with a favorite Uncle who happened to volunteer to perform our wedding ceremony. When our day finally arrived, Father Vince was there (early) and getting set up. He then delivered a ceremony with the perfect blend of spirituality and meaning that we hoped for. In fact, he was so complete in his message, and in his knowledge of us, that after the ceremony all of our guests just assumed he was either a longtime friend or family member. If you seek a custom wedding service with a meaningful message of love and harmony, then look no further. Do yourself a favor and talk to Father Vince and Christine. Laura and I are so glad we did and are honored to call them our friends.
