Thank you Reverend Larry,

Our wedding was beautiful and just what we wanted. You came early and made sure we both were set and ready to go. Thanks for thinking ahead and printing our personal vows. You really helped to put me at ease when I got a little emotional and had a hard time reciting some of my vows.

Warmest regards,

I would recommend Larry to anyone looking for a Wedding officiant. I don't have anything negative to say. We just went with an elopement package, so it was short and sweet just the way we wanted but with a very personal touch. Larry is a very nice gentleman, and you could feel that he wanted our day to be special. Larry is friendly, funny, and good at what he does.

Rev. Larry presided over our recent vow renewal in Eugene @ the Excelsior Inn B & B. I knew from the moment I spoke with him on the phone that he was the perfect officiant for us. He was agreeable, well spoken, had humor, showed up early & nicely dressed. I too am an officiant on the central Oregon coast & an ordained minister who co-ministered a church in the south for many years. So I was particular in our selection of an officiant. You can't go wrong selecting Rev. Larry for your big day!

The first meet up was amazing. My wife and I were both nervous about picking someone we've never met. He was very easy to talk to and explained everything in great detail. He has flexable prices and will work with you to find the perfect wedding for the couple.

It was a very smooth wedding. The PA system that he brought was perfect. Everyone heard very clearly what was being said. He made sure things where done right and all we had to do was repeat after him and sign on the dotted lines. I would recommend him to anyone who is nervous and needs a little guidance.

We wanted a quick, short and sweet (elopement) ceremony in Bandon and that is exactly what we received. Within the week of our wedding we were in a bit of a panic that we hadn't found a local officiant. We located (on facebook) Reverend Larry and within an hour had started back and forth communication via phone and email to secure an officiant for our special day.

We could not be happier with the service we received from quick communication and the ability to review and confirm our ceremony vows online, through the exact type of ceremony we both hoped for. THANK YOU again for making our day so special (and interjecting humor as needed)!!!

It was such a pleasure to have Reverend Larry perform our wedding ceremony. I can tell you that by the time the planning is done and the wedding day has arrived you will forget to plan for some of the details....Rev. Larry didn't! He thought of everything we didn't and was always easy to get a hold of and to work with. He offered us several options for our ceremony and vows and worked with us to get every detail just perfect.

Reverend Larry was our Officiate last Saturday for our wedding in Crater Lake Oregon. We live in Utah and decided to have a destination wedding with our closest family and friends. I found Reverend Larry on wedding wire and he was the only person willing to travel to Crater Lake to perform the ceremony without requiring premarital counseling. We communicated mainly via email and phone. He was always very prompt with his responses by email and would call back immediately if I had left a message on his phone.
About a week before the ceremony, we needed to change the ceremony time. He was more than willing to accommodate for the new time frame. When we arrived, Reverend Larry was able to get into the park for free since he was performing the ceremony and didn't charge me extra for the entrance fee. He had 2 assistants with him who were performing video and photography for the ceremony. They were both very helpful in deciding were to perform the ceremony.
Once the ceremony started Reverend Larry was relaxed yet still professional, adding comedic side commentary when appropriate. Reverend Larry was a great addition to our wedding and was so helpful and accommodating. I can't imagine our wedding any other way.
Following our wedding Reverend Larry sent us a link to our wedding video online. The video itself was wonderful the only thing that could have been improved upon was the audio quality. But that was really no fault to him or his crew since it was very windy that day at Crater Lake. I can't wait to share the video with our friends and family. We were given the option to purchase the video, but with the diminished audio quality Reverend Larry isn't requiring us to pay for the audio set up if we don't feel it was worth it.
I would highly recommend Reverend Larry to anyone who is looking to do there wedding in the future. Be sure to book him early, he is just that good that you may miss out on your preferred date.

It was a pleasure working with Reverend Larry. He stumbled over the ceremony several times but I am sure this was out of the ordinary. I think he should include the wireless mic he has available in his packages. It makes his product better and therefore a better value.

Update 5/27/2013 - Must read!
Reverend Larry served as our wedding officiant last August. However, I feel it is very important to mention the most recent transaction that took place between the Reverend, my husband, and I.
Shortly after our wedding my step mother was diagnosed with a deadly and aggressive form of cancer. Needless to say, I did not return home after our wedding. My husband returned home and I went to spend time with my father and step mother to help settle affairs. Months later, I had remembered to ask my husband if he had received the wedding video from Reverend Larry and where it was. My husband recalled that the video had come but had been damaged in the mail. I was rather disappointed because it had been several months since our ceremony and no ones fault that the disk had been damaged but still unlikely we could get a replacemnet. I asked my husband to contact Reverend Larry to inquire about a replacement disk.
Reverend Larry was extremely generous. He sent out a replacement disk free of charge. My husband and I got to watch our wedding video for the first time just two nights ago (5/26/2013). I can't explain the joy I felt to see my step mothers smiling face and walking arm and arm with my father. I will be sharing these happy images with my father when he comes to visit this summer.
Reverend Larry did not know the circumstances or greater importance of receiving a replacement copy of our wedding video. He acted out of his own kindness and generosity. To me, this speaks as to how important it is to Reverend Larry that his clients are satisfied with his services and that they get the most value out of his packages. This is hard to come by these days. Especially

Sorry about the stumbles, bad throat day. If I had to add in everything I had to offer I would have to raise my prices and that is not what I want to do. I let people know what I have, then leave it up to them if they wish to use them. If you have a Pro DJ he will already have them in his package.Trust me, I would LOVE to use the PA system at every wedding. I do not want to charge for things they don't want or already have. That is why it is an option. There are free items I do offer to the Bride and Groom after the ceremony is past. People never hear about these, but that is Ok.

Reverend Larry was a complete Joy to work with, he was the most professional and entertaining officiant I could have ever asked for. He was prompt (even with his day completely Booked!). Reverend Larry completed my image of what my idea of a perfect ceremony was, I couldnt have been more thankful to find him. Anyone Lucky enough to have him as their officiant can count on their ceremony being the most perfect once in a lifetime event.

It is very difficult to talk with the Bride when she has people fixing her hair, makeup, and nails. I usually do speak with the Bride in private. I did speak to your son who was to present you to the groom and he understood the processional and you both looked comfortable. Sadly, the information did not get filtered back to you. Sorry!

We felt that he had our best interests at heart throughout the whole process and allowed us a ton of creativity when it came to making our wedding day our own.

Larry is very professional and was at the wedding location before the set-up crew. He and his team were very helpful and a pleasure to work with.

He was nice and early on the day of the ceremony and had even emailed me the day before to find out the wedding colors so that his suit wouldn't clash. He did a great job with the ceremony and I really like the way he spoke. He has a very nice, slow pace that is just right for a wedding ceremony.

Rev. Larry is very good at what he does.

Up to the wedding Reverend Larry was very communicative. He responded to my emails very promptly and was very helpful. Rev. Larry was well organized for the wedding rehearsal and then arrived in a timely manner for the ceremony the following day. He made my husband a little nervous as he was not at the wedding site until just a few minutes before the start time but he was also travelling to get there. All was well in the end...he turned up...I walked out and seven minutes later we were married!! Our ceremony was very short! Some people may not feel that it was worth $250 plus a tip for seven minutes (I think that beats a lawyer's fee!! :-) However, the value does come from his preparation and communication before hand. For all the other things that I had to remember for the wedding I knew beyond a doubt that Reverend Larry would be there, on time, that he would be organized and that he would be professional. That is absolutely worth every cent as without him...there is no official marriage!

Thank you for the review. I must respond that the money you spent was for more then just me doing the ceremony. It also includes things like the many hours creating YOUR ceremony, mileage fees, office expense, Internet expense, advertising ,phone calls, marriage license handling after the ceremony and a zillion other things people don't think about. It is far more then me just arriving and 7 minutes later your are married. Rememeber YOU selected and approved the ceremony. I try to be very professional with all my Brides and Grooms and will always be attentive to their wants.

Our wedding was a little unorthodox, quite loosely organized, casual and a bit improvised. We had other plans which fell through at the last minute and didn't make contact with Mr Edward until 2 wks before our wedding day! About 1/3 of our wedding guests ranged in ages from 7 yrs down to 10 mos and half of the parents of our little guests were standing up with us during the ceremony. Mr Edwards handled everything with patience, grace, and humour. And, in the end, WE WERE MARRIED and had a Wonderful and Memorable Day!

We highly recommend a rehearsal before the wedding ceremony. Although our wedding party , My Husband and I rehearsed , we regret that we did not have our officiant rehearse with us. During our ceremony our daughter was loud in the background banging on a table , our officiant in the middle of the ceremony made a comment regarding the outcome of the wedding the day prior and we felt that was very unprofessional during our ceremony. We felt he should of taken a moment of silence, and stayed quiet until our daughter was removed , then continued the ceremony gracefully without having to mention the ceremony he was conducting the day prior that annoyed him . Also during the ring vows, He asked the groom to properly place the ring on the brides finger. He forgot to ask the bride to place the ring on the grooms finger... then proceeded " Aren't you gonna put that on him " when he went into the closing of the ceremony. I recommend having a rehearsal run through with your officiant so that YOU can create your ceremony to your perfection and correct the behavior of your officiant and explain to your officiant what you do and do not expect from him/her especially if you have little children .I think we would have been more pleased with the outcome of our ceremony had we rehearsed together to get to know one another better and so our officiant would know our expectations .

Awedlar Wedding Officiant Srv.,LLC responded with the following comments:

I truly am sorry you felt let down. If someone had stopped the child the first time it happened the rest probably would not have happened. As it was I had to stop the ceremony twice before any outside intervention with her. When ever an Officiant has to stop a ceremony once, the ceremony does not seem to work smoothly after that. I noticed in the video you were laughing and thinking it was "cute". Prior to her "drumming on the table", she came up and was tapping on your wedding gown to get attention, that is when someone should have controlled her. As to the ring ceremony, which occurred right after the drumming finally was stopped, here is that part of YOUR ceremony "I Give You This Ring" I guess you forgot to put it on until I noticed you still holding it.. As to the rehearsal, the Officiant really does not need to attend for a small ceremony. I did offer my services but you declined it. I did send you a rehearsal guide to follow. I was wrong to mention the previous incident, just hoping someone would watch out for a child trying to disrupt the ceremony, no such luck. For a better view of this please go to YouTube and view the video.
