Steve was awesome! He was very accommodating. He met with us and we were able to talk about the different things we wanted for our big day. The rehearsal went smoothly (even though we were the late ones! So thankful for his patience!) and our big day was even better!

Rev. Stephen was a fantastic addition to our beautiful wedding day. He was thorough during the entire process and ensured that all parties understood their role in the ceremony.

Rev. Goodrum was the officiant for our ceremony. He helped us customize a ceremony that was uniquely us and made the most important part of our day truly special. We had our wedding outside, and the direction the wind started blowing from caused my wife’s veil to constantly... Read More blow in her face.
