Pastor Bob was perfect for us! We did a lot of research into finding an officiant that could personalize our ceremony. We knew PB was the guy as soon as when we met him. He is so personable and genuine and really made us feel comfortable during this whole process. We enjoyed the marital counseling sessions (which I recommend, as it gives him a greater opportunity to get to know you and make your ceremony very personal!)
After getting to know us, he sent us a few variations of ceremonies which we could mix and match, cut and paste, & add to until we had our PERFECT ceremony. We laughed, we cried, we prayed, we smiled A LOT! He did a tremendous job & we recommend him highly!

Pastor Bob was AMAZING!!! My husband and I did a lot of research to find the perfect officiant that would integrate my families religious background with our more modern lifestyle AND do a nod to my husbands Scottish heritage in our ceremony. Pastor Bob pulled all of these ideas together into the ceremony seamlessly and it was perfect! Our family & friends couldn't get over how traditional our ceremony/wedding was while still being fun, all thanks to Pastor Bob.
He was flexible with meetings, he was very accommodating with any of our requests, he continuously was mindful on how to "customize" the ceremony to be just for us... I'm still blown away at the level of attention to detail he gave in preparation to our day.
Our wedding was originally scheduled for 10/07/2016. We had prepared for this day with a year and a half engagement. That week, hurricane Matthew hit our exact venue location during our wedding time forcing us to cancel everything the day before. A brides worst nightmare!!! We were devastated and called Pastor Bob asking him if there was any way he could still marry us despite the horrible weather conditions and none of our friends/family able to make it. He immediately came up with a beautiful Plan B that was so thoughtful! In the end, we weren't able to make Plan B work. We took a step back for a few days and tried different dates that would work for all of our vendors on a last minute notice (as you may find out during planning your wedding, vendors book up months-year in advance so this was mission impossible!) We were pretty much left with week days to choose from only. We realized Halloween was on a Monday and could be a fun Wedding date so Pastor Bob was our first phone call. He made himself available for the day, and even said he could dress up as a Pastor for Halloween LOL We were blessed to find someone that was so willing to work with us through planning our ceremony to helping us solve problems we couldn't of foreseen!

Pastor Bob went out of his way to customize our ceremony for us. He attended the reception as well as our rehearsal dinner and our families are still talking about how comical he was and how great it was to have a Pastor presiding over our weekend. Although a Pastor, he can accommodate from acompletely secular ceremony to a traditional Christian ceremony.

Past Bob was very responsive and prompt in answering any questions/concerns/comments we had before the wedding and was timely and professional for our special day! My wife and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good officiant who does not overwhelmingly push the religion he practices, but still adds God's blessing to a marriage (in case one or both parties in the marriage is not Christian). He was lighthearted and made the event fun for everyone involved, not just the bride and groom!

Pastor Bob was everything we could have asked for and more. As a fairly shy person, I was afraid I would be nervous and anxious on my wedding day, but Pastor Bob was able to keep the rehearsal and the ceremony fun! His sense of humor and his fantastic personality made him a joy to work with and I am so glad we found him and asked him to be our Officiant. He made our wedding memorable and I couldn't have asked for more.

Pastor Bob was great! Our ceremony could not have been more perfect for my husband and I, our families, and our guests.With the help of Pastor Bob, we were able to piece together a ceremony that combined traditions that were important to us and our families. He was so easy to work with and genuinely cared about what things were important to us. He fit in perfectly with my husbands tall groomsman :) Couldn't have imagined a better ceremony with a more thoughtful person!

There are no words to describe how phenomenal Pastor Bob is. From our first phone conversation, my husband and I knew we had to have him as our wedding officiant. Trust me......We were not disappointed. His personality is so fun loving and he fit right in with our wedding crowd. He really put us at ease in the most important time in our life. You can easily tell he absolutely loves what he does and it's shown through his work. We were planning our wedding states away and Pastor Bob had the best ideas and was so communicative with us throughout the process. He encouraged us to truly be "us" during our ceremony and helped us tailor it to exemplify our love for each other. Our guests are still raving about how awesome out officiant was, and I highly recommend Pastor Bob if you want the wedding of your dreams. We're so thankful for our new found friend and all his hard work to give us the ceremony of our dreams!!
