I did not know this officiant, and sice my husband and I were having a wedding although we had already been married at the court house months ago, and we were reading our own vows, I wasn't very picky about who would officiate it, but he forgot he had another wedding an hour after mine, so my ceremony lasted literally five minutes, because he was rushing, and also forgot that we were reading our own vows and began to tell us to repeat after him. He is very friendly and although I didn't know until I had done everything myself, he has a lot of wedding resources that can help you save money.

My husband and I had found Garland online and met with him twice prior to our wedding. We had discussed the particulars of our outdoor wedding, including that we would be reading our own vows and releasing monarch butterflies during the ceremony. We had written out each passage and poem we wanted read including what he was to read while we released the butterflies. We emailed it to him a week or two before and thought no more about it. The day of our wedding he showed up and five minutes before it was to begin, asked my husband what he was supposed to read during the butterfly release. Come to find out he neglected to bring our ENTIRE program and all he had was his generic program with another couple's name scratched out and ours pencilled in. He was unable to find a copy because the only place he could access it was his home computer. So instead of walking down the aisle, I was combing google on my Blackberry for 10 minutes trying to find a similar poem for him to read. Thankfully we had also listened to him when he said he could be heard without a microphone so it didn't matter when the words he said were as impersonal as could be. This man single handedly ruined our ceremony (at least to us) and them had the gall to collect his entire fee. We made two mistakes that day: not bringing our own copy of what was to be read and asking Garland Linkous to marry us.
