From beginning to end, Tom was communicative, timely, helpful and accountable.
Perhaps most importantly, Tom has a great sense of humor which certainly made me feel at ease throughout the wedding planning process and on my wedding day.

Many of our quests complimented Tom after our ceremony. They enjoyed his overall demeanor, delivery style and calming personality.

Based on my interactions with Tom, I can tell you that he is a good man who enjoys his work as a officiate. I was very fortunate to have Tom by my side on my wedding day.

Tom Armstrong was the officiant at my wedding a few weeks ago and we are so happy we choose him for our special day! He made us feel comfortable right away and met with us before the ceremony to quickly go over what would happen. There is a natural calm and ease with Tom and you could tell he has performed a lot of ceremonies in the past and is very good at what he does. He has a deep strong voice that carried well throughout the venue. I would highly recommend Mr. Armstrong if you are still searching for an easy going yet professional officiant for your wedding.

Tom was an absolute delight to work with and to have as our wedding officiant. Crafting the ceremony was easy thanks to the templates on his website. We didn't actually meet Tom until the day of our wedding (previous communication through email was always met with a prompt response), but as soon as we saw him and his friendly smile I was 100 percent sure he was the perfect person for the job. We had a small secular wedding, but both of our families are religious, so it was important to us to have an officiant with some legitimacy to them, and who would bring a sense of gravitas to the ceremony (i.e. not a friend with a certificate from a fake internet church). Tom's presence at the ceremony was exactly what we were looking for. And his graceful professionalism afterward as we were signing the wedding certificate just as the rain began to pour was also much appreciated. I would definitely recommend him.

Tom was wonderful to work with through the whole planning process of my wedding. He was very prompt with his phone calls and emails and extremely helpful and friendly. He was very professional and early for our ceremony which we appreciated so he was all ready when we got there. Our wedding was very spontaneous and non traditional and Tom was flexible and cooperative through the whole thing. He had an amazing presence and eloquent voice when performing our ceremony. My family as well as my husband's family really enjoyed him as the officiant as well and we were so glad we chose him to officiate our wedding. I love that he provided samples from his website to make it easy for us to put together our ceremony the way we wanted it. That helped us very much! He also gave me all the information I needed for changing my name after I was married which was appreciated greatly! I would recommend Tom for a wedding officiant to anyone and everyone I know who is looking for a high quality officiant.
