We are so thankful Pastor Chris Thomas was our pastor. He met with us very early on in our wedding planning journey for dinner, where we discussed the plan and overall timeline before the big day. At this dinner we knew we had to have him as part of our ceremony. He has a... Read More wonderful personality, and we were both excited to have someone so fun and outgoing help walk us through this experience. Pastor Chris was always very timely with his responses and would get back to me right away whenever I had questions. He was on time for the rehearsal and wedding day. Our ceremony was my favorite part of our entire wedding, and Pastor Chris was a huge part of that. He guided Will and I through the whole ceremony, and he spoke the ceremony readings so perfectly . His fun personality had people laughing at all the right times, and even now a couple weeks after our wedding, friends and family have asked me about how he is doing and mentioned how much they enjoyed him! Thank you Pastor Chris for helping to make our day the best day ever! We couldn't have done it without you, and we are so thankful for your friendship throughout the entire process and hopefully for years to come!

Pastor Rich Tiemann was absolutely amazing - officiated our wedding April 9th and we honestly couldn't have asked for anything better! We were able to build the ceremony exactly how we wanted it; adding certain aspects here and there - really making it personal, which is exactly... Read More what we wanted. I was raised Roman Catholic and my husband Christian but just not very religious overall; and we wanted to be sure to have a ceremony that wasn't religion based and instead very us, with a small prayer/religious part.

Rev. Rick saved the day as he stepped in when our original officiant cancelled on us. When we met, we were first struck by his charisma and then by his extensive experience. He was very patient and responsive through the many edits of our ceremony. We opted not to have a... Read More rehearsal, even though we had the unity candle, reverse unity candle, and hand-fasting as parts of our ceremony. Rev.

I highly recommend Rev. Rick and Sensational Ceremonies!

Our officiant was Rev. Rick Lackore in Tampa, FL. We knew we’d made the right call from the very first call. During the phone consultation, Rev. Rick covered his extensive training and experience and he also fully explained the available services and what to expect. We chose... Read More to participate in premarital counseling which, in addition to learning some valuable information, provided the opportunity for Rev. Rick to get to know us and for us to get to know him. That rapport helped make the ceremony a little more personal than it might otherwise have felt. Leading up to the wedding, Rev. Rick worked with us to tailor the ceremony content to fit our personalities, our preferences, and our level of spirituality. At the rehearsal, we were very impressed with Rev. Rick’s preparation and command. We left with the confidence that we, and our wedding party, knew exactly what to do on the big day. On the wedding day, Rev. Rick helped get everyone organized prior to delivering a perfect wedding ceremony. It was clear from our own perspective and reinforced by guests’ comments that Rev. Rick truly loves what he does and he’s one of the best – a true professional. We’d recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

I am relatively new to Florida and did not have a pastor to marry my fiance and I. I didn't want anything phony or contrived, so I searched and searched to find someone who was genuine and authentic. Pastor Chris was the only one who offered to meet with us before our wedding... Read More to see if we liked him and if he was a good fit for us. He was very warm and very easy to work with. We wanted something spiritual, even though we weren't getting married in a church, and he gave us a FANTASTIC ceremony. Even my Catholic mother who was not too pleased we weren't married in the church loved his words and how our ceremony went. When all was finished, he even offered to remain our pastor, should we ever need counsel or spiritual guidance, something I really appreciated. We will definitely be taking him up on that :). Thanks again Pastor Chris!
