Pastor Bob was able to schedule is a week before our wedding! He squeezed our ceremony in between 2 other ceremonies he had that day. He was available to talk to us and to customize our ceremony to exactly what we wanted. He is easy to reach, he's professional, and he has a great voice for officiating. We were very happy with his work and he even offers a generous military discount to service members. Thank you Pastor Bob!!

Pastor Bob and his wife, Dail were an amazing team! Meeting with Pastor Bob was great, and we instantly clicked! We asked him if he would be comfortable doing a non-religious ceremony (which he was) and off we went! He was always easy to get in contact with, and as the wedding got closer he had ideas for the ceremony ready to review, he let us have full creative reign, but it was mostly not needed, as it was almost perfect that way it was. Dail was our day-of-coordinator, we met a few times before and she came to the rehearsal and much to my mom and my delight, she was exactly what our bridal party needed, someone to keep everyone together making sure they knew what needed to happen for a smooth ceremony. She was willing to help with anything, and was fun getting to know. I would definitely recommend these two to anyone! They are the perfect team, Pastor Bob as the goofball and Dail as the No-nonsense go-getter!

Pastor Bob is truly a blessing, a week before the wedding, the officiant that we were going to use was hard to get ahold of. So I started to look for a new officiant, about this time I started to stress because family was coming in and we still had no one to marry us. My first phone call with Pastor Bob and he made most of my stress start to melt away. Right away he worked with us with customizing our ceremony and selecting passages that reflected us as a couple. One of the big things between my husband and I are Flip Flops. So I asked Pastor Bob if he minded wearing flip flops for our wedding, and he said that he would love to. He helped make our wedding very special. When we redo our vows in a few years, I hope that Pastor Bob will be my officiant for that wedding as well. Thank you Pastor Bob for everything, you saved my wedding day. <3

We were SO happy with our decision to have Pastor Bob involved in all of our Wedding festivities. Not only did he do a great job on the pre-marital coaching sessions, which by the way, we'd highly recommend as it helped us learn a lot about what to expect in the future as well as more about our own individual needs in general, and he was also so flexible in terms of our desires for the Big Day. He helped to provide us with options and guidance, but at the end of the day, wanted it to be all ours, and that was very important to us. He was there to provide support, insight, and most importantly, a great sense of humor. We absolutely loved him and he will bring an element of JOY and HAPPINESS to your special Day just by being himself, which your guests will surely pick up on. We'd use him again in a heartbeat! Thank you so much, Pastor BOB! :--)

Pastor Bob did an exceptional job performing our wedding ceremony!
We worked together prior to the wedding customizing our ceremony and selecting passages that reflected us as a couple and the message of Christ's love we wanted to share with our family and friends.
Pastor Bob had the whole congregation laughing at several points during the service!
Afterwards our guests kept commenting on how great our Pastor and ceremony was.

Thank you Pastor Bob for all you did!
I would def. recommend him to any brides-to-be :)

Pastor Bob is seriously the bomb! He made our ceremony fun and upbeat because we really didn't want a sappy ceremony. He is great to work with, he gives you ceremony options that we can change as much or as little as we want. After my wedding, I got many compliments on Pastor Bob. I would 100% recommend him to anyone, of any Christian denomination!

Pastor Bob is truly a blessing. He was very flexible, supportive, and vibrant from the first phone call. I found him as he is a preferred vendor for The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island where we got married. He is the first and last person I called because I knew he would be amazing! He is very intuitive, and kept pushing us to make our vows something special and incorporate Spanish (my husband is originally from Cuba). The day before the wedding, we gave in to his recommendations and decided that Pastor Bob would state our vows in English, and we would repeat them in Spanish. It was beautiful, and my husband's family (who some speak only Spanish) truly appreciated it and shed many tears to hear me speak in their native language! Pastor Bob was always available via e-mail, phone, and in-person! Please consider Pastor Bob for your wedding, he truly cares about your ceremony and life as husband and wife.

Pastor Bob was amazing! He was very quick to get back to us with any questions we had throughout the process. Even though we only met on the day of the ceremony it felt like we had known him for years. Shortly after Pastor Bob showed up I mentioned that I needed to fix our hand made alter on the beach and he followed me down the beach to make it perfect just before my bride arrived. He is very professional and flexible with everything for your ceremony. I would recommend Pastor Bob to anyone getting married in JAX or St. Augustine. He is top notch.

Pastor Bob was the perfect choice for our ceremony, as well as our premarital "coaching"/counseling. We learned a lot from him, and he made our wedding celebration so special and fun. I would definitely recommend spending the additional money for premarital coaching with him. He has a special gift for connecting with people, and he definitely made a lasting impression in our lives.

Pastor Bob was awesome. He helped us write our vows and customized the ceremony to what we wanted. He expressed that we could have it as religious or non-religious as we wished. He did not push us one way or the other and was SO MUCH FUN! He kept us smiling. Some of the descriptions I have heard from the guests were "The cool pastor","Very down to earth", "So nice", "Super funny"....we agree. Contact Pastor Bob to marry you for sure and if you are looking for premarital counseling (AKA Premarital Coaching) he is your man. We will be doing Post-marital coaching due to my now husbands work schedule not giving us time, but from others, I have heard it is priceless. Cannot wait! Thank you Pastor Bob for everything!!!

Pastor Bob married Mike and I on October 5, 2013. We were married on Fernadina Beach, FL. We could not have asked for a better person to perform our ceremony. Pastor Bob is a very friendly and personable man. We met Pastor Bob for the first time the day before the wedding, but no one would have guessed that. He seemed more as a friend instead of someone that we had only just met. He is a great Pastor and man. I would recommend Pastor Bob to anyone. We would surely use his services again in the future. Thanks Pastor Bob!!!

Pastor Bob Hovey was an awesome part of our wedding!
We were referred to Pastor Bob by our planner- we wanted someone to officiate our wedding the way that WE wanted it to go. We met with him for ice cream and just fell for this smiling, long-legged, energetic and sincere goofball. He asked us all sorts of questions and ended up getting our feedback on every aspect of the ceremony. It was the most touching wedding I've ever seen, and all of the guests were impressed by Pastor Bob's ease and presence. Even at the rehearsal he was able to inject a little bit of fun and he even made my dad relax a little!

We didn't want to do the candle or sand ceremonies but we did want to include something that would represent our faith and a Christian wedding, so Pastor Bob suggested the Unity Cross that he was familiar with- I had never heard of it before but it was a beautiful addition to bring everything together in a way that meant so much to us.

Pastor Bob was somehow able to keep everyone's attention, touch hearts, keep it easygoing and still made our day the most important day of my life. He's not just a good speaker, he's a good man. :)

Pastor Bob was fantastic! He made our day our own, and from the beginning was willing to work with us to create a ceremony that, in the end was about us. Not only did he work with us with out a face to face meeting until the rehearsal dinner, he rewrote sections of the ceremony several times just for us, and also allowed us the opportunity to edit things and wording to get just the fell we were looking for.

I can't say enough nice things about them, Pastor Bob and his wife were truly sometimes a port in the storm, when it came to the whole wedding process, and their friendship truly means a lot to us!

Pastor Hovey made our wedding day so special. My husband and I were on vacation from Ohio and Pastor made the drive up to Georgia to officiate our ceremony. He kept in touch with us up to the wedding day and had lunch with us beforehand where we got to talk about the wedding as well as our lives. He made us feel right as ease and we both feel as though we have not only found a long-distance pastor, but a long-distance friend. We would definitely recommend Pastor Hovey to others.

I would HIGHLY recommend Pastor Bob for both officiating your wedding and/or conducting marriage counseling. By far the best money we spent on our wedding day was on Pastor Bob.

We are still new to the area, and really just looked around online for someone to officiate our wedding. After meeting with Pastor Bob for lunch, we both knew that he would be a great choice - for both officiating our wedding, as well as being a great person to keep in touch for any difficulties in our marriage. Needless to say, we had him both officiate our ceremony and conduct the pre-marriage counseling.

I would HIGHLY recommend Pastor Bob for both officiating your wedding and/or conducting marriage counseling. By far the best money we spent on our wedding day was on Pastor Bob.

We are still new to the area, and really just looked around online for someone to officiate our wedding. After meeting with Pastor Bob for lunch, we both knew that he would be a great choice - for both officiating our wedding, as well as being a great person to keep in touch for any difficulties in our marriage. Needless to say, we had him both officiate our ceremony and conduct the pre-marriage counseling.

Pastor Bob was absolutely amazing! Not only did he give us the wedding ceremony we wanted, but he went above and beyond to make us and our family feel comfortable. He kept everyone laughing and smiling throughout the evening and was always there for us if we needed direction or advice. Pastor Bob is very professional but he is down to earth and very easy to get along with. He was so easy to talk to and we felt a connection with him that we never felt with any other officiants or vendors. He was not only a great officiant, he was a great friend to us!

I highly recommend Pastor Bob as a wedding Officiant. After reading the reviews and scrolling through the pictures we decided to meet Pastor Bob for lunch. He was very friendly, easy to talk to and made it clear that he wanted us to have the day we envisioned. He worked with us to create a ceremony that fit us (we had a small, outdoor, non-religious wedding in St. Augustine). Although neither my husband nor I spent much time with Pastor Bob at the rehearsal dinner or the reception, our family and friends raved about how wonderful he was. I couldn't be happier with our decision to have Pastor Bob marry us and would recommend him to any and all looking for an officiant.

From the first time we talked to Pastor Bob, he made us feel very comfortable and we knew we had found the right officiant to do our ceremony. He was very prompt and responded very quickly each time we contacted him. He was very flexible and helpful to make our ceremony personable and meaningful to us. He took the time to get to know us and our particular situation and then helped us make our special day a dream come true! We are from SC and had very little knowledge of the Jacksonville area. We were going on a cruise and wanted to get married before as the cruise was going to be our honeymoon. He was very helpful in making recommendations for the location and even for dinner afterwards. We were eloping as we are In our early 50's and both our second marriages. We wanted a very simply and private beach wedding. He found us the perfect location, Ponte Vedra Beach. It was very natural and secluded and the perfect setting for us. He also sent us a ceremony that he created for us and asked for our input and made changes and additions at our requests. And on the day of our wedding, he even agreed to move up the time because a thunder storm was on the radar! He is a wonderful man of God and has a great love for his work! He is so pleasant and we so wish that he were in our area because we know we would love to attend his church! Thank you Pastor Bob! You made our long awaited dreams come true! We love you!

Pastor Bob was amazing. After one meeting and a series of emails he was able to tailor the prefect ceremony for our blended family. He really listened to what our priorities were and respected our concerns and wishes. Everyone in attendance commented on how touched they were by his words. I will recommend him to other couples who want an officiant who will take the time to make their day meaningful.

We were coming from out of town to Florida to get married and found Pastor Bob through Wedding Wire. What an excellent find! From the beginning, he did everything he could to make our ceremony special and went above and beyond to make it just what we wanted. He even took us out on his personal boat the day before the wedding for some fishing and to get to know us better! He and his wife were so hospitable to us during the boat trip. The ceremony itself was truly special. Pastor Bob incorporated all of our "unique" elements perfectly. Though we only knew him for a brief time, he feels like an old friend. Pastor Bob is truly a joy to work with and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Past bob is simply amazing! He performed a beautiful ceremony amongst my family and friends. I didn't get to meet him until the day of the wedding!! It was like we have known him forever. He is truly an anointed pastor and I am so glad he was recommended to us from our coordinator. I would definitely recommend him.

Pastor Bob is a delightful man! Joe and I were so blessed to have him perform our wedding ceremony. Every meeting with PB prior to the ceremony was fun, insightful and meaningful. He truly brought Christ and the meaning of true love to our ceremony. The vows and the message of our ceremony were perfect. His humorous touches made for an enjoyable wedding for all. I highly recommend Pastor Bob as an officiant, pastor and friend.
