Couldn't have imagined a better ceremony! Wouldn't have been the same without Joe! He did an amazing job blending our casualness with the formality of a ceremony. Everybody said what an awesome job he did. Saying that started the entire evening off perfectly. Thanks again Joe!

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!!

Pastor Bob and his wife were perfect for our wedding! We did not really know what we wanted for our ceremony and Pastor Bob did a great job giving us several options to pick from as well as encouraging us to add in things of our own. He is a great guy and did and went above and beyond helping with our smaller wedding.

I'm so glad we found Pastor Bob! He was the perfect officiant for our special day, and especially leading up to it. At our very first meeting, he put us at ease that he knew what he was doing and he helped us grow and get ready for our marriage with his premarital coaching classes. He worked with us to get a ceremony that was just right! On the day of, everyone complimented us on the beautiful ceremony and how fun the officiant was.

I've known Pastor Bob since I was a baby. He has always had a special place in my heart and always will. He has been nothing less than a blessing in my life. Jimmy and I went to Florida for our premarital counseling and Pastor Bob really helped us to understand why problems or arguments may arise in marriage. He helped us to understand that we really have to take time out of our day to support each other and be patient with one another. On our wedding day, he was a true blessing. A lot of people that came to our ceremony said, "Pastor Bob stole the show." They all said how precious and heartfelt our ceremony was. Pastor Bob really puts a lot of thought and meaning behind his ceremonies. He really wants to teach the world about love and marriage. Pastor Bob was my Dad's best friend when he was alive so he has really gone out of his way my whole life to make sure I was okay and taken care of. He even joined me during my "father/daughter" dance as a stand in for my Dad. I know my Dad was watching down on us and his heart was full. My heart was full in that very moment as well. Pastor Bob was amazing as our wedding officiant and I am so glad I get to call him my friend as well. Thank you for everything you did for us on our special day! We love you!

After getting engaged, we knew that starting the search for someone to marry us would not be an easy task. We have moved around a bit due to my husbands job and during our time in Jacksonville, Fl, we hadn't really connected with a church/Pastor that we felt comfortable with. I was raised Catholic and my husband Lutheran, so we were also concerned on how this would all come together and feel right for our special day. Our wedding planner found Pastor Bob for us via great reviews online and we were very excited to meet with him and learn more about what he had to offer. We met Pastor Bob at the best meeting place there is, Chik-Fil-A! We were a bit nervous going into the meeting as this was a big decision for us, but after the first few minutes we were instantly put at ease. He made the conversation comfortable, we didn't feel judged and he assured us that our ceremony would be what WE wanted it to be. He listened to us, asked great questions, got to know us and gave us a feel for what we can expect and what our options were for the ceremony. Pastor Bob was great about staying in touch throughout the process and kept in touch via email to confirm how things were coming along as our wedding date got closer. He provided several ceremony options for us to choose from, alter, edit, etc. and customized it to be exactly how we wanted it. Our wedding day came, and Pastor Bob did not disappoint! At both the rehearsal and wedding day he kept us and our guests laughing and at times crying and it was the perfect balance of love, laughter and religion - it couldn't be more 'us'. Multiple guests mentioned how much they enjoyed our ceremony and the lightheartedness of it and enjoyed talking with Pastor Bob as well. We are so thankful that he was a part of our wedding and would recommend him to anyone looking to have a a memorable ceremony that the guests will enjoy as much as the bride & groom.

We loved working with Pastor Bob and having him as part of our special day! Everyone in our family loved him and his sense of humor. We completed pre-marital counseling with Pastor Bob and also had him do our ceremony as well as ask the blessing at our dinner. During our pre-marital counseling, he made us feel at ease and very comfortable with what could be awkward. We also learned such valuable lessons during this time together. For our ceremony, Pastor Bob gave us free reign and he encouraged us to make it our own. He did send us an A version and B version of the ceremonies, which helped significantly. We ended use quite a bit of both versions to make one memorable, special, and intimate ceremony. By our reception time, everyone in our families wanted to hang out with Pastor Bob. He was sociable and had a blast! We would highly recommend him for your ceremony as well as pre-marital counseling! You will not regret it! Even though we had just met him through this process, he always made us feel like we had known him forever!
