Pastor Pete has the most diverse experience than any minister in Las Vegas and since 1974 he has been in various aspects of the wedding industry. From being a minister to being a television camerman, videotaping the biggest ceremonies in Chicago. Upon semi retiring to Las Vegas, he realized a void in personal minister service to the brides. With knowledge of many different cultures from Greek, Spanish, Jewish and different religions, we offer a personalized ceremony to what you want.

Trick Question - What it the first thing a man and woman do as husband and wife? Answer - They become husband and wife...Therefore the ceremony should be what they want, not what someone tells them they must have.

We perform the most important ceremonies....YOURS!!!! Read less

Pastor Pete delivered a beautiful ceremony. He was very sincere and spoke as if he had known us for years. He and his wife are endearing people who show the utmost professionalism and well as organization prior and during the ceremony. It is very important to have an officiant with a lot of experience and Pete and his wife Daniele possess great qualities!

Pastor Pete was charming and very friendly. My husband and I filled out a questionnaire answering very specific questions that made our ceremony more personal. Pastor Pete both entertained my guests and told our story. We paid a small deposit when booking the event and the rest cash prior to the wedding. In all we had a lovely experience and my guests who attended the wedding are still talking about how spot on the pastor was.

We had originally hired Pastor Pete because my friend had him as an officiant and she said he was very good so I emailed him and he emailed me back right away every time. The day of, Reverend James show up ( I can't remember why Pastor Pete couldn't make it) but he did a great job. He made my guests laugh and his reading was very nice. I was very happy with their services.

Pastor Pete is amazing! Not only did he respond to our email request immediately, he was so incredibly accommodating for our wedding. We had a fabulous ceremony and Pastor Pete went over and above by heading to the licensing bureau and processing our license early the next morning to accommodate our travel plans. He is amazing! I would definitely recommend you call Pastor Pete for your Vegas ceremony.

Pastor Pete was HIGHLY recommended to us by our photographers (F-Sequence Studio) and for good reason. Pastor Pete's style is fun, lively and not at all preachy which was exactly what we wanted.

For preparation we talked to Pastor Pete so they we could get to know each other and filled out a questionnaire to help him personalize our ceremony, which he used to great effect. He came to our rehearsal and made sure we all understood how the procession would work (we had no idea ourselves!) and was at our ceremony well ahead of time. The ceremony was everything that we imagined and his message was very inclusive to make everyone really feel like they were a part of our big day. He also gave us some great advice and gave us the pen he used to sign our license which was a nice touch.

We are both very honored to have been married by Pastor Pete!

We LOVED Pastor Pete Starcyk. We'd emailed with him a bit and met him about an hour before the ceremony and ran through some of the details (readings, processional, etc). Guests had no idea that we'd just met him that day because he was so friendly and warm and seemed to know us very well.

However, we're Green Bay Packers fans and he sprung on us during the ceremony that he's a Bears fan. It was almost a deal breaker. Thankfully we are a forgiving couple, and we literally spent the rest of the ceremony heckling him. Haha … no, seriously, he was a total professional but he really made the wedding feel special and unique even though we hadn't know him very long. Very impressive!

Pastor Pete was amazing! Living in the UK all our arrangements were done over email. Pete sent us a fairly long questionnaire which was one of the reasons we picked him as we thought we would get more of a personal touch from the fact he took that time to get to know us. We met with him in person upon arriving in vegas where we spent more time getting to know him and all his effort really made our ceremony amazing. We didn't expect the actual ceremony to be our favourite part of the day over the party but we loved how personal it was and that we were not told everything that would be said so we were hearing his jokes for the first time. Pete really gave us a unique and personal wedding that we will always remember as being perfect. He really made our wedding and we loved that we had him marry us.

My Husband Peter and I want to say a massive thank you to Pastor Pete!

He really was amazing and really added a personal and special touch to our ceremony.

A number of guests who attended the wedding and family who have seen the video since we returned have commented on how great he was.

Within minutes of meeting us he had worked out we were not such serious people and added some fun and laughs to the ceremony which captured our personalities perfectly.

This really was a special day for us and are so happy we had Pastor Pete to be a part of it.

Pastor Pete was awesome!!! He has obviously done a bunch of weddings before so he has it all down. He sent a questionnaire out ahead of time for us to answer some basic questions - how did we meet, what do we love about the other person, etc. He then picks a few details from this to use in our wedding to make it more personal. He came in to the hotel room before the wedding and went over how it would go. He was really nice and told me to relax and focus on the night and each other. The ceremony went very smoothly. I really loved that he added a few comments and jokes to make our guests laugh. It really helped to make things more relaxed and not quite so formal. I highly recommend using Elegant Vegas Weddings!!!

Our officiant was included in our package we purchased from the Platinum Hotel in Las Vegas. Pastor Pete was exceptional! He was sweet, funny and made our ceremony very personable. He took everything I sent to him and made his own little tribute to how we met in high school, all of our break up and make ups but really focused on the present and had me in tears. I keep watching our ceremony over and over again and seen how nervous my husband was to stand in front of everyone but he really made both of feel like there wasn't anybody around us and I am truly thankful for all those little touches he added to make our ceremony OURS! So a big thanks to Elegant Vegas Weddings and of course to Paster Pete for making our day something we will always remember!

So DISAPPOINTED:( We felt very comfortable after emailing back and forth, but then the day of our wedding he was "sick" (read older reviews) and sent another person, who we are pretty sure had notes on a completely different couple other than us. Told a story that had nothing to do with anything we had spoken about when filling out their forms or even the follow up emails. We met on a blind date, he said we were friends for years... oh and he reaked of smoke. The next day I wrote a few emails to the company letting them know how bad of an experience we had and got NO RESPONSE!!

Good luck if you book with them- hopefully the right guy will show up and will know who you are.

Elegantvegasweddings responded with the following comments:

Jill & Tommy:
We take every wedding seriously as it is such an important day in the lives of two people. We take every precaution to provide the happy couple with a personal ceremony. We are amaized to read your comments, as there are several errors in your posting.
1.Rev. Forrest does not smoke! In his report after the ceremony, when he arrived at the hotel on route to the ceremony location, he saw some groomsmen in the bar area and asked if the groom was present. He was not and he went to the bridal suite to meet with the bride. Your comment of "reeked with smoke" is totally impossible.
2. We did respond to you and your aunt within two days of receiving your e-mails addressing your comments. We question why you are writing two months after the ceremony?
3. It was Rev. Forrest's idea to have the violinist play a few bars from the song "Love Story", something that tied in your "Save the date Love Story" and further personalizing your ceremony.
4.Your aunt wrote that her friend heard nothing. Yet the violinist heard her Que to play and she was the furthest away from the ceremony behind the last row of chairs on the groom's side. Also Rev. Forrest led his church band and is totally familiar with microphones.
5. He involved your guests in the ceremony as discussed.
6. Your suggestion of Rev. Forrest asking your Dad "Who Gives...." was replaced with his suggeswtion of "Who Brings...." as a bride is not property
7. He did speak of the first thing that happened to you, and that was you became friends. He then compared that friendship to a new sapling tree and how fragile a new tree and friendship are in the beginning. An analogy that is very fitting to a relationship, generic yes but fitting.
8. Upon concluding the ceremony he approached you, shook your hand and your response was polite, you thanked him and shook his hand indicating nothing was amiss. Also your guests approached him and commented how nice the ceremony was. How did they and the violinist hear the ceremony and your aunts friend did not.
We feel there is an underlying reason for these false and demeaning comments. Your aunts comments were all centered on the money she spent for the ceremony. Rev. Forrest has many thank you letters from happy brides. At a previouse wedding an example of his personal service and quick thinking was during the pre-ceremony; the bride forgot to order flowers to present to the mothers, he instantly picked two roses from the table centerpieces and had them ready for the ceremony. No one ever knew but the bride.
We are sorry you feel this way but a zero is totally out of the question. Yes Rev. Mike hurt his back and could not attend but Rev. Forrest stepped up and performed your ceremony professionally. Your comments were adequatly answered before and here and we wish you a long life together.

Pastor Pete was wonderful. He had us fill out a long questionnaire about ourselves, our relationship, and our hopes for the wedding and many of these details were incorporated into the ceremony. It was really customized to us as a couple and that was priceless. Our ceremony was short, sweet, and funny- which is exactly what we wanted. Our guests have not stopped commenting on how perfect the ceremony was for us... and I could not agree more!

The ceremony was perfect and Pastor Pete provided the perfect mix of humour whilst maintaining the emotion of the ceremony.

It felt like we had a family friend as our Officiant and I only wish I could rate six stars on here

As an industry professional, I had a wide array of ministers to choose from, with many of whom I have existing relationships. Pastor Pete and Reverend Danielle are absolutely terrific and my husband and I couldn't have been happier to use their services for our special day. From the highly customized ceremony filled with laughter and joy to our "key" word with which we'll always reflect on our marriage, their service was nothing short of exceptional and we were delighted that they could share in our special day.

Pastor Pete was fantastic. He really catered our ceremony to our taste and was completely flexible when there were last minute changes. He has a great sense of humor and really does a great job at not only involving the guests but helping my husband and me feel calm during the ceremony. We planned from South Korea and so much of our communication was via email. He got back to us fast and we were even able to Skype a couple of times. I really can't say enough about how awesome our experience was.

Pastor Pete was a great match for our wedding. My wife and I are both in the Army and when we found out that Pastor Pete was retired from the Army we knew he was the one for us.

Pastor Pete was wonderful during the ceremony. He made it ours. He was very professional and made us feel very comfortable. He even let a family member use his glasses to fill out some paper work because they had forgotten them.

I would direct anyone to Pastor Pete that is thinking about getting married in the Las Vegas area.

We met Pastor Pete at a bridal show in Lake Las Vegas. As soon as we met him my husband and I both knew he was the man to marry us. Pastor Pete is so easy to work with and so nice. Our guests thought he was wonderful. We even had Pastor Pete participate in a little performance my husband and brother put on before the ceremony. Pastor Pete was awesome! I would recommend him to anyone.

Thank you "Pastor Pete" for making our ceremony, "OUR CEREMONY"! You have the most amazing gift, and we were so honored to have had you officiate as we became husband and wife. You told our story, you honored God and how He brought us together, you talked about our family members (kids/grandkids/parents in Heaven)...your humor made us laugh...you made us so comfortable!!!!!

Getting married in Vegas, one might think is like eating at a fast food joint...1..2..3..wham bam your married ma'am...that may be fine for some...BUT, if you are looking for someone who you is willing to take his time, get to know the two of you, and personalizes your cememony to be about the two of you...THEN, look no further, Pete is all that and more!!!!!!

Do not HESITATE in calling...NOT ONLY is he the most amazing Officiant...he also has great contacts and can help you with any of your Vegas nupital questions..."where do I find...or...who can do this for us"...

Thank you Pete for being a part of Fabulous Day!

Very personal ceremony! More than I ever hoped for!!
Our wedding was so personal and it was definitely because of Pastor Pete!! It was perfect!! I felt like it fit our personalities and sense of humor. I was a little worried because up until the wedding planning we didn't know Pastor Pete but after the ceremony it felt like we had known him for years!

Pastor Pete was amazing. He really wanted to make the ceremony about me and fiance, now husband :) We couldn't have open flames on the roof (so no unity candles), and we didn't want to do the sand ceremony. So after researching some ideas we decided on a wine box ceremony. It was his first time preforming this and he did an amazing job! It is somewhat of a new idea, so I couldn't find much about it but it turned out perfect!!

A wine box ceremony is a great alternative to unity candles or sand!!

I really wanted to write wonderful reviews and I am sorry for not rating Daniele and Pete high.

During planning, Pastor Pete sent us an extensive form to fill out with a lot of info on both the bride and groom and we spent a lot of time working on it. We really wanted a special customized ceremony.

On the day of the wedding, Daniele showed up and said Pastor Pete was sick. I didn't even know she was his wife. Then she wanted to confirm with me that we are having a candle lighting ceremony when we are actually having a wine blending ceremony. At this point I began to freak out and figured she didn't know anything about all of the info we have shared with Pastor Pete (who was the one to suggest the wine blending ceremony).

Then the ceremony started and it was...ughhhh...oh it was not what I expected. Daniele was positive and covered the basics but some of the things she said...my guests were laughing but not in joy let me tell you.

Also, she forgot we have our own vows which i told her we do before the ceremony as I figured she didn't know much about our discussions with her husband. So we skipped our own vows...omg thinking back I get the shivers at the ceremony we had.

Well either way we were wed by her and it all worked out in the end. Of my dream wedding, this part was the only frustrating thing. I am so sorry it turned out that way. I spent 2 hours memorizing my vows and my husband was confused during the ceremony thinking I have made changes without letting him know....

Not the best experience. I think that if pastor Pete did show up instead of Daniele, it would've turned out just as we wanted...

We wanted Pastor Pete to marry us, as he had done two of our best friends back in 2010 but unfortunately he was booked on our wedding day. He suggested either his wife, daughter or longtime colleague Reverend Forrest. For some reason my husband and I were set on having a man marry us, so we went with Rev. Forrest. Pete assured us that he and Forrest had worked together for 20 years in Chicago, and when Forrest moved out here Pete started to train him in "Vegas style ceremonies" and that if we liked his work we would like Forrest.
Reverend Forrest was very nice, and he did a great job. His reading just isn't exactly what I was looking for. I can't say it's anything he did wrong, just isn't exactly what I wanted; but I should have been more clear. What I really wanted was for it to be short and sweet (pretty much what you see in the movies), but to include the kids and to make it seem personal to my husband and I (we chose not to write our own vows). He did include the kids, and he made it seem a little personal in mentioning how we met and the fact that we had been together for 6 years, which was great... if it would have ended there I would have been completely happy, but then he started going on about how he and his wife have been married for 25 years (which is fantastic, but I think it could have been left out), and then started going on about trees and totally lost me. Again, not his fault because I could have been more clear on the short and sweet thing, but I figured telling him we wanted a civil ceremony pretty much summed that up. Another thing I found to be kind of odd is that he didn't come to the rehearsal. This is my first rodeo tho, so maybe thats normal. To wrap it up, Rev. Forrest did a great job. Just make sure you let them know exactly what you want out of your ceremony. You can not find a better team of officiants for the money. Almost every other officiant we got quotes from was double the cost. I would definitely recommend Elegant Vegas Weddings and Rev. Forrest.

Love love LOVE Pastor Pete! What a great job he did. He took what my husband and I wanted for our ceremony and made it so much more. We explained that we just wanted to have fun and to keep it light. He was fantastic. He was funny and personable and brought the guests in to listen to everything he was saying. I have never approached someone after the ceremony to tell them the pastor was good but I had a lot a people tell me how much they LOVED him. If you get a chance or are skeptical, just try him. You will not regret it!

Hi everybody in the Good Ol' U.S. of A.! From Adelaide, Australia! My now wife and I traveled to America last August to attend the Sturgis Rally for the first time, and had a blast! On the ride back to Seattle, we stopped in Frisco, Colorado for a couple of days. It was here that we had the good fortune to meet by lucky chance, Pastor Pete, and the Rev. Daniele, from Elegant Vegas Weddings. We talked about how everyone back home in Australia thought we came to America to get married, so Pete said, "well, let's do it right here and now!" So, we did! A very impromptu ceremony in front of the Best Western Hotel, surrounded by Harleys(and one Honda!). Pete and Daniele, and all their friends were fantastic! Pete conducted the ceremony, with what basic information we gave him at the time, while Daniele took the photos(you'll find our photo on their website). Their friends took photos and video for us too. It was such a fantastic and relaxed atmosphere, dressed in Sturgis Harley t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops! We wouldn't have wanted to do it any other way! Colorado now holds a very special place in our hearts, thanks to Pete and Daniele! We have kept in contact with them since we arrived back in Australia via e-mails. Shortly after arriving back, we decided to renew our vows here at home, for family and friends to attend. A small ceremony conducted in our garage at home, surrounded by our Harleys again(and one Honda!). We introduced Pete and Daniele to Skype(now affectionately referred to as 'The Skypie Thingie'), and with the assistance of their daughter Macky setting them up, Pete and Daniele conducted the whole ceremony again over skype in the company of all our family and friends! It all went as well as the Colorado wedding! All our guests commented after about how great Pete and Daniele were! There were some comical moments, as in Colorado, some improvised moments because of the distance, and there were the serious moments. All in all, everybody thought it was the best wedding they have ever been to!! Relaxed, fun, and tailored to our biker life-style! Our only regret was that we had to say thank you and goodbye, and switch off the Skype afterwards! We both want to extend our deepest thanks, gratitude, and appreciation to Pete and Daniele for doing this for us again! It was as memorable as the day in Colorado! We highly recommend Pete and Daniele, and the services they offer through Elegant Vegas Weddings, to tailor a wedding day never to be forgotten, and always to be cherished by you! They have become two of our many wonderful American friends! Love ya guys! You're the best!!!

She asked many questions about us and our lives and our families and truly cared about us and not about the money like some over rated and over payed officiants that have the nerve to marry people! Her and her husband truly do it for the simple joy of uniting love!!! Danielle was with me from the day I set the date to the final I DOS and Im so happy I got to meet such a beautiful soul like her! She gave us the best ceremony, and said the most wonderful and beautiful things! We had no idea what we wanted to do as far as ceremony so we left it up to her and she delivered 100% AND MORE!! She is non denominational, non traditional cause in her words, "Whos tradition is it anyways!" I loved her and her spirit!

The man dressed like Darth Vader for us, how can you go wrong? He kept in contact, making sure the ceremony was going to be what we wanted it to be. He infused laughter and tears into what many of our guest have described as the best wedding they have ever been to. Because we live outside the Las Vegas area, he was more than willing to make sure the things we needed were taken care of prior to our arrival. He also worked extremely well with all our other vendors to ensure a perfect day. We would highly recommend anyone needing an officiant to give Reverend Pete a call, you won't be sorry!

I was very excited to work with Pastor Pete upon learning that he was highly recommended through Patrick, the wedding coordinator at the Vintner Grill. However, I never even had Pastor Pete at our wedding. Instead, we were told the minute we arrived for the ceremony, by his daughter (who I never met or spoke with before) that her father was very ill and could not make it to the wedding to be our officiant. She walked up to the venue right after we got there and I was a little worried about the whole thing. I mean the least Pastor Pete could have done was given me a heads up call or sent his wife to do the ceremony. Being that she JUST read our submitted questionnaire (that my husband and I at least spent 2 hrs putting a lot of thought and effort into our responses about each other), none of it was incorporated into the ceremony (like expected) and she mispronounced my husband's name at least 3 times. We were totally mortified and embarrassed, and she never really took the time to instruct us on what to do, where to stand, etc. It was totally awkward for the both of us, and she also could barely read the name of the author that wrote the passage that she read in front of our guests. My husband and I really wanted our ceremony to be special and intimate, because we have been together for almost 3 years and this meant a great deal to us. It felt like she really didn't know what she was doing, which was apparent during the ceremony, and it seemed as if she improvised the whole time. How unfortunate that we have to remember this as our wedding ceremony for the rest of our lives. It just threw off the whole tone of the wedding from then on. Just BE AWARE that this may happen to you, if you go with them.

I cannot believe how AWESOME our ceremony was because of Pastor Pete! But before I even talk about the ceremony services, I wanted to say that Reverend Danielle was a hoot on the phone and very assuring about both her services and Pastor Pete's. Whomever you end up with, you will be in EXCELLENT hands!

In speaking with Pastor Pete on the phone, he was very professional, yet had me excited about the ceremony! He gave me a few options, which I then passed on to my fiance' (at the time), and we set up a meeting with Pastor Pete a few weeks before the wedding.

Pastor Pete has so much knowledge about the world, with all of his professional and personal experiences, and this was completely integrated into our conversation. We wanted our ceremony to not be super religious, but we did want our own personal faiths to be intertwined into our special event. We discussed a short prayer, and then he gave us some great ideas to add to our ceremony. One of them was that we wrote each other's vows to read (and we didn't see what they were until the wedding!) and this cracked up the whole audience! Pastor Pete also added some random humor that we weren't prepared for, and laughing during the wedding really helped my EXTREMELY nervous groom! His sense of humor also seemed to unify both sides of our families; we could see the smiles on the faces of all of our relatives and friends and that was what we wanted!

As a former wedding musician, I didn't want my own wedding to be the typical music/processional/vows/recessional ceremony. Pastor Pete allowed us to involve my own musicians (former piano students), unity sand, and a friend who got to read a personalized poem. With an already 80's-friendly theme, he threw in a "Party On, Dude!" at the end that we discussed - HILARIOUS! This meant a lot to us because we didn't want that "cookie-cutter" wedding and he really was supportive of this!

Aside from all his words that relieved our anxiety, we felt that this personalized ceremony fit who we were, and the sniffles of happiness and giggles from Pastor Pete's humor really attributed to one of the most memorable moments of our lives as bride and groom. I still have friends and family who comment on the ceremony - and we relive the happiness all over again!

Pastor Pete, thank you for the amazing wedding and for helping the people who were a part of our ceremony. Thank you for guiding our families and calming down my then-fiance' (ha-ha!). You truly made our wedding a night to ALWAYS remember!!!

One of them was that we wrote each other's vows to read (and we didn't see what they were until the wedding!) and this cracked up the whole audience! Pastor Pete also added some random humor that we weren't prepared for, and laughing during the wedding really helped my EXTREMELY nervous groom! His sense of humor also seemed to unify both sides of our families; we could see the smiles on the faces of all of our relatives and friends and that was what we wanted!

As a former wedding musician, I didn't want my own wedding to be the typical music/processional/vows/recessional ceremony. Pastor Pete allowed us to involve my own musicians (former piano students), unity sand, and a friend who got to read a personalized poem. With an already 80's-friendly theme, he threw in a "Party On, Dude!" at the end that we discussed - HILARIOUS! This meant a lot to us because we didn't want that "cookie-cutter" wedding and he really was supportive of this!

Aside from all his words that relieved our anxiety, we felt that this personalized ceremony fit who we were, and the sniffles of happiness and giggles from Pastor Pete's humor really attributed to one of the most memorable moments of our lives as bride and groom. I still have friends and family who comment on the ceremony - and we relive the happiness all over again!

Pastor Pete, thank you for the amazing wedding and for helping the people who were a part of our ceremony. Thank you for guiding our families and calming down my then-fiance' (ha-ha!). You truly made our wedding a night to ALWAYS remember!!! Read less

Within a few minutes of talking to Pastor Pete on the phone I felt like I had known him for years. He asked me tons of questions about me and my fiance, and what we would like our ceremony to include. He took everything that I said to heart and I couldn't have imagined a ceremony better suited to us. I am grateful to Pastor Pete for making it perfect
