Oh my gosh, Scott is a gem! Our wedding coordinator Rachel, recommended Scott to us and boy are we lucky to have had him officiate our ceremony! Scott is AMAZING! Our guests LOVED everything about our ceremony - especially how wonderful Scott is and how great he is at making... Read More people feel relaxed and connected. We spoke with him for over an hour and a half before contracting him for our wedding, and the entire conversation was so easy and natural. He is full of life and truly makes you feel special! Before the wedding, he spoke to both my husband and I separately and went over everything we would need to know, including some fun little tricks to use to make sure we did everything right :) He wasn't sure he was going to stay much past dinner but he ended up staying the entire night - even helping to coordinate our sparkler send-off! He truly is a great person and we are so lucky to have had him officiate our ceremony and celebrate our big day with us. Afterwards he even sent us a copy of the marriage certificate that he mailed in as well as some info on how to change my last name :) We recommend him whole-heartedly and without reservation. Thank you so much Scott for everything - we love you!

You won’t find anyone better than Scott! When it came time to start looking for an officiant, my (now) Husband’s co-worker recommended Scott, and boy are we glad that he did! We immediately felt at ease and comfortable from the first time we spoke with Scott about our vision for... Read More the ceremony. He is truly passionate about what he does and goes above and beyond in every way possible to make sure that your wedding day is exactly how you envision it and nothing short of absolutely amazing! After the ceremony when we were taking the bridal party photos, Scott was right there making small tweaks here and there to my veil, flowers, boutonnieres, etc to make sure that everything was perfect for the photographers. AND not only did he officiate our wedding, but he was also the DJ and MC for the reception! We were able to give him a thumb drive of songs that we wanted played and he even took requests and downloaded a few songs on site that he didn’t have. My husband and I both received countless comments from our guests about how great Scott was and we couldn’t agree more! We are so thankful for Scott and his enthusiasm and passion for what he does – our wedding day would not have been the same without him!

Where do I begin to talk about how absolutely AMAZING Scott is?! First of all, you know you had a phenomenal officiant when the wedding party and the guests can't stop talking about how fun, helpful and overall wonderful he was. Truly, he was like a wedding fairy godfather! Not... Read More only is he truly passionate about what he does but he is so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process. He is a wealth of information regarding anything related to your wedding and can literally probably answer any question you have. He is also just incredibly kind and genuinely caring and helpful. The day of the wedding, he was there early to help do the rehearsal but before and after, he just offered to help set-up or get anything ready, it was so appreciated by us and our families. With 100% honesty, I would recommend him to anyone getting married. All those qualities are just bonuses, as an officiant he was the absolute best. He helped us create a ceremony we were happy with, that was engaging, a reflection of who we are as a couple and just overall beautiful. Hiring Scott was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

Scott has a perfect five star rating for a reason! His personality and professionalism are above and beyond.

Scott was AMAZING – truly. To give you an idea, chose Scott as our officiant because he officiated my SIL’s wedding FIVE years ago – that’s how much his ceremony stuck with us. The second their wedding was over, I looked at Chris and said, this is the guy that is going to... Read More officiate us. He’s enthusiastic, kind, vocal and is with you the ENTIRE process. We spoke with Scott nearly a year before our wedding, and he reached out multiple times to check in, and even wished us good times during the holidays. Scott also had great ideas to incorporate into our ceremony – we did the Wine Box and the Hand Ceremony, both which he made unique to us. We also got to pick and choose from multiple ceremony options to make our vows our very own - he also made it easy to incorporate some of our own verbiage into our vows and he helped us ensure that it flowed smoothly – If you’re looking for someone that feels like family, and that helps make you feel comfortable in a situation that can easily feel like an anxious rush, Scott is your guy. He is patient and attentive and you will not regret allowing him to officiate and be a part of your special day.

Scott Payne was truly the highlight of our wedding ceremony. He was an absolute JOY to work with, literally, he brings so much laughter and joy to everything. He spent time getting to know us before we mapped out our wedding ceremony, and made the whole process truly enjoyable... Read More and easy. The first day I met Scott he told me about the wine box ceremony idea. I was immediately completely in love with the idea, and with the passion with which he spoke about it. I will never forget that day and how excited I was to have him as our minister. Our wedding ceremony was absolutely perfect, and so very us. Scott takes time to understand you as a couple, and get to know what you truly want and do not want during your wedding. I will forever remember our beautiful ceremony, and the wedding wine box which we will continue to use for the rest of our lives. I had so many people come up to me and tell me how genuinely nice, happy, and AWESOME Scott was, and I absolutely could not agree more. I couldn't stop smiling ear to ear during the rehearsal or the ceremony. If you are picking a minister/officiant, do yourself a favor and look no further than Scott. He will be the best decision you make for your wedding, and will make your wedding a day you will never forget.

Scott did a wonderful job on our wedding! He turned our wedding ceremony into the most beautiful moment in our life.
