The Web site is easy to search to find whatever services you need. The Minister Chris Marx and first talked on the phone and set up an appointment to meet in person in a mutual location. I and my then fiancé met Chris, and we got along from the very begging. He asked us a few questions about what kind of ceremony we wanted. I ordered THE BOOK that had several examples of wedding ceremonies, and special readings. This book even had example programs and examples of the procession. What I liked was that if we wanted something different, we could because it was not mandatory to pick from their list of readings. I however, liked the reading choices and chose one when I completed the form on line as to ceremony choices. At the end of the form there were questions where we could add additional information to make the ceremony more personal. We only met Minister Chris Marx a few times, but the way he delivered the ceremony it was like we knew each other for years. We received several compliments about how personable the minister was when he spoke. I am really happy with Love Notes and especially with Minister Chris Marx.

Chris Marx was worth every dollar we paid!

My husband and I were in a very unique situation. We were having a traditional Indian wedding, followed immediately by an American ceremony. First of all, it was difficult to find an officiant who was willing to do a ceremony like this. Thankfully, he was very kind and willing to work with us.

Since this was a new type of ceremony for everybody involved, a rehearsal was VERY necessary. The rehearsal was just a mess and unorganized until Chris took charge. He started directing people (in a polite way of course) and taking the role of almost a wedding coordinator since we didn't have one.

The day of the wedding, he stood by entrance of the hall, told our bridal/grooms party when to enter, and made sure the groom didn't see me when I was coming downstairs.

On top of all the help he gave us, the American ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. Since we are 2 different religions, we just wanted a ceremony more about love than faith, and that is exactly what he gave. He also mixed in humor, which was just the perfect touch. So many of the guests complimented our ceremony, and asked who Chris was because he was so great! Everybody assumed we knew him, because he was just so personable!

The transition from the Indian ceremony to the American ceremony was flawless, and that was all because of Chris' help at the rehearsal. I cannot stress how helpful he was.

I highly recommend hiring Chris Marx because not only will he give you a beautiful ceremony that you will remember for years, but he will go beyond the call of duty to help you as much as he possibly can.

Best of luck to all the future brides out there! :)

Buster Noah was awesome from Love Notes. He did an incredible job with our wedding ceremony. We had many guests that complimented him on how perfect the ceremony was and he knew exactly what to say. Not only did we use him for the wedding we also did premarital counseling with him and it was one of the best things that we did. He made us feel relaxed and is an excellent listener. I have suggested Buster to many of my friends and 2 of them have already reached out to him.

He did such a good job and was always available when we needed him. I decided to go ahead and do the pre-marital counseling Dave and his wife offered and absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend LoveNotes to anyone and above all I would choose Dave because he did a fabulous job overall.

Our officiant, Chris, did an amazing job! He was very personable and professional. He did an outstanding job of directing us through our rehearsal, and was very helpful with last-minute ceremony prep. We also asked him to do a very unusual "unity" gesture during our ceremony and he did a phenomenal job of making our idea come to life. Also, his energy and personality fit perfectly with our ceremony. We didn't realize how critical that dynamic would be until we reflected on it after the wedding, but he was a perfect unifying presence for the event and we feel very fortunate to have had his involvement in our wedding.

Pastor Dave Tucker was fantastic to work with! And he was totally on board with having our dogs in the wedding! He always responds to e-mails very quickly and was really helpful whenever I had questions. On our rehearsal and wedding day, he had this great calming presence and sense of humor that puts everyone at ease. He showed up early to make sure everyone was okay and prayed with us before the wedding. Everyone loved him and I had many compliments on our ceremony. If you don't already have an officiant in mind for your ceremony, Pastor Dave is awesome!

Pastor Buster Noah was the Love Notes minister who officiated our wedding and he was excellent! He was very flexible with our schedule for both the rehearsal and the ceremony, he was always prepared, was always calm and had a great demeanor and smile on his face! During the ceremony the microphone was acting up but he was calm and handled it gracefully and ensured that it worked out well. At our rehearsal he was very knowledgable and knew exactly what to do and how to communicate with everyone. His communication skills were amazing and he was able to articulate and be courteous and friendly at the same time. Additionally he did a great job of going through all the information we gave him on how we met, our back story, the proposal and he included all of that in the ceremony! He was absolutely magnificent and I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

We contacted lovenotes when our plans with a previous officiant had fallen through. I was a little nervous we would not be able to schedule someone so close to the big date. I contacted the site and was set up with Lou Whitworth and it could not have turned out better! He met with us right away and was so wonderful and accommodating. I really felt comfortable with him. My mother was put into hospice right before the wedding and he even took time out of his busy schedule to marry us in her room so she could see my dress and everything. He is so sweet and thoughtful! The rehearsal and wedding went off without a hitch (except for the bride and groom's:) and he was very attentive and professional. I did not feel nervous and I did feel prepared when standing at the altar. Everyone knew where to be and when to be there. He is a wonderful officiant and person. He made our day so special and we are very grateful. Thank you Love notes! You guys rock!

We used Love Notes services for our wedding ceremony. We met with Rev. Dave Tucker about 6 months before our wedding and signed the contract shortly after our first meeting. He didn't pressure us or make us feel like we had to make the decision immediately. He has a great personality and that made him really easy to work with. We had an amazing experience and would recommend Love Notes, esp. Rev. Dave Tucker, to any of our friends and family.

LoveNotes and Chris Marx were wonderful to work with as well as the service provided. We were not affiliated with a Church or Synagogue and needed someone to marry us. The Country Club we were getting married at suggested LoveNotes as a preferred vender. LoveNotes has many different services to choose from as well as all kinds of wedding traditions that you can include in your service. It was easy and wonderful to pick and choose what fit "us" for our service. It was very meaningful and special for the two of us. Thank you LoveNotes and Chris.

We knew we must have Carol perform our wedding when we saw her perform a friend's wedding and we were not even engaged at the time! Once we did get engaged, we contacted Carol to officiate our wedding. Although our wedding was very small and intimate, Carol still made it feel like the very important event it was. Everyone loved the ceremony she did for our blended family. Our 12 year old daughter liked it so much that she told Carol that some day when she gets married that she would like to be married by Carol - that says it all! Thank you Carol for making our ceremony so special for all of us!

Our 12 year old daughter liked it so much that she told Carol that some day when she gets married that she would like to be married by Carol - that says it all! Thank you Carol for making our ceremony so special for all of us! Read less

Ours was a very small, casual wedding of just 14 guests (5 of which were us- bride and groom and 3 children). Ken Savage was extremely professional, kept the mood light and joyous. Everything was lovely...would definitely recommend LoveNotes (and Ken) to a friend!

We used Buster Noah for our wedding last weekend. Working with Buster was an absolute pleasure. He took the time to get to know me and my fiance prior to our big day. By the time of the wedding, we both felt like Buster was our friend as well as our minister. He made our day truly special. We will be keeping in touch with him for the rest of our lives:)

Pastor Erickson was the officiant for our wedding last month and we loved having him as part of our special day. He catered the ceremony to our personal wishes and added a little fun to the rehearsal. My wedding coordinator, photographer, and videographer all told me that I needed to tell my officiant to be sure to do a few things, but as soon as I let them know Pastor Erickson came to us through Love Notes, they all said, "Never mind, those guys are great... they already know everything to do!" It was such a relief having one less thing to worry about.

Thanks Pastor Erickson and Love Notes!

My husband and I just got married over the weekend. We were worried about an officiant because we don't belong to a specific church, so we booked LoveNotes. We originally booked with Marty Younker but someone double booked him so we got Dave Tucker instead. What a blessing that was! We met Dave and his lovely wife at a Starbucks that was closest to us (and not so close to them, though we didn't find this out afterwards) and talked about what my husband and I wanted. Before the ceremony he checked up on us to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything. During the ceremony he used enough humor to put everyone at ease, and made the crowd laugh. He made sure he has all our paperwork regarding what we wanted for our ceremony, and made himself available to anything we needed. I would recommend Dave to everyone, and if we decide to renew our vows we wouldn't think twice about it, we would book Dave again.

Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony.

We found Love Notes through our venue after a very traumatic experience with our first officiant. One month before the wedding, we had no one to officiate the service, let alone sign the marriage license! Our venue pointed us to the direction of Love Notes, and I quickly filled out the forms online. Within minutes, I received an email from Marty, the executive director, apologizing that he was booked on our wedding day and that he was assigning one of his colleagues, Sonny Gann. Sonny emailed me that day, and he was already such a comfort to me. He emailed me plenty of information and sample ceremonies to review and answered every little question I had. We met at a local Starbucks about a week later, and my fiance and I immediately felt comfortable with him. You can tell by just one conversation with him that Sonny is passionate about his work as a wedding officiant and truly aims to make the couple 100% happy. Over the next couple weeks, we exchanged several emails. He always replies in a timely manner and reassuring attitude. Seeing him at the rehearsal was like seeing an old friend! Both the rehearsal and the actual ceremony went seemlessly thanks to Sonny!

Chris Marx from Love Notes was so wonderful to work with! He was recommended to us by a friend, and we are so glad we followed through with the suggestion. My fiancé and I casually met up with Chris at Starbucks to discuss our vision of our perfect wedding ceremony. He answered all of our questions and put our concerns at ease (my husband was from a Catholic family, and I was from a Lutheran family. Both families were upset we were not having a ceremony in the church). Chris helped us create a ceremony that both families were SO happy with on our wedding day. LoveNotes makes it incredibly easy to "create your own" ceremony and pick the minister that is right for you. I must say we loved how Chris added a light hearted touch to our ceremony, he was so personable and professional. Our ceremony could not have been more perfect!

We had a wonderful experience with LoveNotes. When we first met Marty to discuss our big day, we knew we would be in good hands. Marty talked about his experience and passion as a wedding officiant. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable about the industry. After we signed the contract with LoveNotes, we realized Marty had officiated my sister's wedding many years ago. We were surprised by the coincidence and my family was delighted to be able to see Marty again.

With Marty's recommendation, we took our pre-marital counseling course from Sonny, who is another minister with LoveNotes. We looked forward to our sessions with Sonny; he was funny, friendly, and engaging. Sonny made the course interesting and applicable. We learned about our strengths/weaknesses and walked away with many valuable tools to help us communicate better and work together as a team.

A week before our wedding, we received words that Marty was ill and Reverend Joe will be officiating our ceremony. A quick call from Reverend Joe soon put our nerves at ease. He reassured us everything will be fine. We met Reverend Joe for the first time at our rehearsal. He had a wonderful smile and worked seamlessly with my coordinator as well as the venue coordinator. He informed us of what to expect on the big day and offered many helpful suggestions. The big day went on as smoothly as we can hope for. Reverend Joe was so impressive that one of my bridesmaids contacted him to officiate her wedding. We can't wait to see Reverend Joe's smile again at her ceremony so we can thank him again in person. Thank you LoveNotes for making our day extra special.

I am a photographer and can be found at Songsview.com . The first wedding I did with Pastor Dave was early December at a lovely Botanical Gardens ceremony. I was very impressed with him, and how he calmed and accommodated the wedding couple! Today, the unthinkable happened to a couple that I was photographing for their wedding! The officiant did not show! Everything went up in the air! Then I remembered this great pastor from earlier in the month, and got Pastor Dave on the line. He talked to the groom and was at the venue inside of 30 minutes! He talked briefly to the groom, then hit the ground running! He preformed a beautiful ceremony for the couple, and they loved it even more than the original that was planned! I am sooooooooo impressed by this man that I would recommend him to ANY and ALL of my brides without hesitation! He made everything right and took a disaster and turned it into perfect! Thank you thank you thank you, Pastor Dave! You are the hero of the day and you have impressed me beyond measure!

Chris Marx was my pastor through Love Notes. One of the first things noticed about him was his expediency with responses; he is very prompt to reply to inquiries and that is greatly appreciated during planning. Moving into his services, I was at first a bit overwhelmed by the information packet he provides on customization of his ceremony services. But after I started looking at it, I realized it's because he wants my ceremony to be my way, not his. He is fully flexible, and can do a great variety of things. But that's his services offered. In terms of him as a person, he's great. Prior to my wedding I was in a room full of groomsmen and family freaking out because I was so nervous. Even though I hadn't met Chris in person prior to this time, I actually found him the most calming. He talked about where I live, and simple talk, rather than my feelings on the ceremony. He was very calming, and throughout all my interactions with him including the ceremony he was a tried and true professional and a really calming figure. I have nothing but great things to say about Chris Marx and the services from Love Notes, and I would 100% recommend him. I may be a bit off on the price, but I do know he offered me an active duty military discount, which is always appreciated.

I'd very much recommend Buster for anyone looking for a fun and semi-religious ceremony.

Minister Charles Sisneros was wonderful for are our October 12th wedding. Chuck had to step in for another minister closer to the wedding, but he was so wonderful about keeping in contact with me prior to our rehearsal. My (now) husband and I were able to talk to Chuck and get to know him in a very short time period and he made our ceremony so beautiful. I feel like he really got a good grasp of who we are in such a short amount of time! Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful his ceremony was, his calm demeanor, his great sense of humor, and Kyle was so grateful that Chuck was able to keep him calm during the anticipation of my walk down the aisle! The whole Love Notes staff was so wonderful to work with and we could not have asked for a more wonderful ceremony. Rev.

Minister Charles Sisneros was wonderful for are our October 12th wedding. Chuck had to step in for another minister closer to the wedding, but he was so wonderful about keeping in contact with me prior to our rehearsal. My (now) husband and I were able to talk to Chuck and get to know him in a very short time period and he made our ceremony so beautiful. I feel like he really got a good grasp of who we are in such a short amount of time! Our guests are still commenting on how wonderful his ceremony was, his calm demeanor, his great sense of humor, and Kyle was so grateful that Chuck was able to keep him calm during the anticipation of my walk down the aisle! The whole Love Notes staff was so wonderful to work with and we could not have asked for a more wonderful ceremony. Rev. Marty assured us that we would “get hitched without a hitch” and they definitely delivered. Thank you again!! Read less

We had Randy as our officiant and he was nothing short of amazing!!! We live out of state and he was able to accommodate our needs and wishes through it all from 900 miles away! We were able to write our own ceremony and it was performed above and beyond all expectations. Not a single regret! Thank you, Randy and Love Notes!

Chris Marx was the most amazing officiant for my wedding October 12, 2013. Not only did he prepare us months before time by personally meeting with my husband and I, he also kept in constant contact throughout our two year engagement. This was especially crucial the week leading up to the big day. On the big day, Chris was able to keep me informed on what was going to happen, when it was going to happen and how it was going to happen. This made my hour before the wedding till I was walking down the aisle the most enjoyable time for me as the obvious stressors were taken care of.

During the ceremony, Chris was able to bring a sense of humor to our vows (which made it much more personable & comfortable for us and guests), and he also gave the kindest words about my husband and I. His ceremony started off our marriage with love, laughter, and confidence to honor and enjoy our marriage together. I recommend Chris Marx and fellow officiants at LoveNotes to anyone who is getting married and wants the support of a friend and love of an officiant for their big day. Thank you so much, Chris, we will cherish our wedding day forever.

Rev. Taylor was wonderful! We have been married one month now, and our guests are still commenting on how great he was. It was less than a month before our ceremony that we found Al. He took the time to meet with us several weeks before the wedding to discuss our different options for ceremonies. He also discussed several different options of attire he had for our wedding style. From there we emailed/called/texted back and forth with Al to make all of the final arrangements. On the day of the wedding, Al drove an hour and a half to our wedding location, and he made sure to be there an hour and a half before our wedding start time. Our wedding actually ended up being an hour later that we anticipated because it was an outside wedding, and Mother Nature was not cooperating. Al mingled with our guests and kept them informed on what was going on. We ended up having to move the ceremony into the barn and improvise on our original plan. Once the ceremony began, everything ran seamlessly from beginning to end! Al, in the short time we got to know him, really personalized our wedding ceremony to include things about each of us. We would recommend Rev. Al Taylor to anyone!

From the moment we met Marty to saying goodbye to him after our ceremony, we felt like he was part of our family. Marty is so genuine, organized, detail-oriented and dedicated to creating the perfect wedding ceremony for the bride and groom. Our guests are still telling us how much they loved Marty and how he knew exactly when to add humor and seriousness into the ceremony. We feel truly blessed to have been able to have Marty be a part of our wedding day and would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.

Sonny Gann officiated our wedding on 08/18/13 and we absolutely loved him! We customized a large part of the wedding ceremony so we were a little nervous about how it would turn out, but we were in good hands with Sonny. When we first met with him beforehand, we immediately felt comfortable with him. Sonny has a very professional, yet friendly and relaxed demeanor and after only chatting with him for about an hour, we felt as if we had known him forever. We were so glad that he was available to officiate our wedding. He has a great sense of humor as well, so not only did he perform a beautiful ceremony, but he was able to impart a little of his humor to keep the ceremony fun and to keep us from being too nervous! We got so many compliments on the ceremony afterwards, and we owe a huge thanks to Sonny for that! We highly recommend LoveNotes!

We truly cannot say enough about how nice it was working with Ken from Love Notes. We had an interfaith ceremony and Ken perfectly incorporated traditions from both of our faiths. He used exactly the wording that we wanted and truly allowed us to customize our wedding ceremony. Love Notes provides great templates that you can pick and choose from for the wording which made our wedding feel very personal.
We got so many compliments about Ken from our guests after the ceremony and we passed along his contact information at the request of some of our engaged friends.
Going into the planning process, I didn't expect the officiant to be one of the best parts of our wedding but Ken turned out to be just that. We highly recommend Ken and Love Notes to any couples looking for an officiant. You will not be disappointed.

When planning a wedding, it is easy to get overwhelmed. As soon as my fiancé and I met with Reverend Al Taylor of LoveNotes, we were instantly put at ease. He was kind and calm and sincere. He was happy to work with us on our ceremony and wanted very much for us to have the wedding we wanted. He was supportive and helpful and even researched some readings to add to our ceremony. He was always on time and ready to go for our meeting and our rehearsal. The day of the wedding, my soon to be husband expressed excitement at, "getting to hang out with Reverend Taylor," before the ceremony. During the ceremony, Al was confident and clear as he led us through our vows and as he read the poems and prayers that we had all selected together. We found Rev Taylor to be a soothing and calm beacon leading us through our most happy day.

Marty truly took the time to get to know us as a couple, and even though we had never met – we sat there talking like Marty was an old family friend.

We went with Love Notes Clergy Services for the officiant at our wedding, and Marty Younkin was the reverend who officiated. We could not have asked for a better, more personable officiant who gave us exactly what we wanted. One of the best things about Love Notes is that they allow the bride and groom to decide how the wedding can be conducted. They offer a vast variety of service options, from the short & sweet, to the traditional or religious, to the blending of families, and much more. Marty, in particular, was a wonderful officiant! He made the extra effort to get to know us and find out what we wanted on our wedding day, what mood we wanted, and he delivered above and beyond. Many of our guests commented to us after the ceremony about what a wonderful job he did! I highly recommend Love Notes (and Marty in particular) for your wedding officiant!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about LoveNotes! Our officiant was Dave Tucker and he was perfect! He made the entire experience effortless for us, I never had to worry once about anything! Completely professional and extremely easy to contact (he ALWAYS responded immediately with any of my e-mails or phone calls!). Our wedding was a "surprise wedding", in which we had a surprise wedding ceremony at our engagement party and of course he was apart of all the secret keeping and did a great job! He blended in well with our guest during the "engagement party bit" and no one thought a thing! During the ceremony he was great, everything ran smoothly and he did every single thing that he said he was going to do (no unwanted or unplanned surprises!). He was funny, easy to talk to and made every minute of the ceremony rememberable. I would recommend him one-hundred times over! Thank you Dave!!!

Marty - of LoveNotes - was amazing! He took the time to get to know us, and made sure the ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. He is able to provide levity if that's what you're looking for - or a more serious tone for your day if you prefer. Our wedding day was perfect, largely due to Marty!

Further - at least half of the guests at my wedding (of 110 people) made mention of our officiant, and how wonderful he was.

I have known 2 other couples who were married by Marty, and were equally as happy with his services, and my cousin - who will be married in the fall, has already worked to procure his services for his wedding.

We chose lovenotes for our wedding because it was highly rated/reviewed and we desired a civil ceremony. I met with our officiant (Ken Byrd) early in the planning process to get to know him, before we had booked with them. I felt very comfortable with him and although he was a minister, he was very nonjudgmental about our desire to have a civil ceremony. This was a Chinese-American wedding, and fairly late in the planning process we decided to hold the tea ceremony during the traditional wedding ceremony. Ken was very flexible and agreed to officiate the tea ceremony for us as well. He handled our crazy families well at the wedding rehearsal, and deferred to me when my crazy in-laws wanted to make a thousand changes at the last minute. The scariest part was that we never got a copy of the tea ceremony verbiage, and did not even see/hear it until the actual ceremony - but, it turned out great and everything was perfect! I could write a whole other review on their book "A Wedding Ceremony To Remember" but let's just say I couldn't imagine planning my wedding ceremony without it.

He makes the process very easy, has great ideas and shares lots of options for putting the ceremony together, and was always willing to meet with us or answer questions. Marty will definitely make sure that your ceremony is something special!

When we began to plan our wedding ceremony, it became clear very quickly that there was a lot we didn't know about wedding ceremonies. LoveNotes was able to show us how different wedding ceremonies can be, and provided us with a template from which to design and personalize our own ceremony. We first requested Carols services simply because we both wanted a female officiant. I feel like this desire was fate, because Carol was so amazingly perfect for us and our ceremony. She was polite and professional, but was so genuine and natural that after about five minutes I felt like she was someone I had known for years. It was mostly, if not entirely, due to Carol that our ceremony went so smoothly. I can't thank her enough for helping us create a ceremony that truly reflected our love and lives perfectly.

It was so user friendly and easily customizable to your own preferences. We were able to make our ceremony completely unique and fitting with our personalities. Our family and friends loved Chris as well and gave us so many positive compliments on how he carried out the wedding service. Chris made our wedding truly special and unforgettable. We highly recommend Chris Marx and Love Notes to any couple seeking to have a meaningful and heartfelt wedding ceremony.

Revered Tucker took the time to get to know us before our ceremony, he was very responsive to all of our communication, and his professionalism put us at ease.

It was great to be able to meet him and get to know him before our wedding. We had excellent e-mail communication to answer any of our questions we may have.

Everyone that we spoke to was extremely surprised to find out that she had just met us in person for the first time the day before the wedding.

Carol was extremely professional, kind and hilarious. She was a hit there was nothing but amazing things said to us about her. If the company she works for is anything like she is then I would definitely recommend that you use them for your special day.

Thank you again Love Notes for making our day so amazing!

Not only did we learn from them and their experiences as a married couple, but we laughed and talked with them like old friends. It was nice to have someone officiating our ceremony that knew us on a more personal level. We really felt like he believed in our marriage and was proud to be there for us on our special day. In all of our encounters with Dave he was timely, professional, kind, and helpful. I had no worries on my wedding day, and that's thanks in large part to Dave. I would recommend him to any bride and groom. Thanks again, Dave!!

My husband and I could not have been happier with Love Notes! Carol Sage performed the most beautiful, intimate ceremony we could have ever hoped for. Our original minster become very ill the day before our wedding, and you can only imagine how stressful it was trying to find a replacement at the very last minute! Our coordinator immediately got us in touch with Love Notes (a company she has been working with for years) and Carol was so excited to work with us. We were nervous about meeting her for the first time just hours before our ceremony, but as soon as we met all my stress melted away! She gave me an instantly comforting feeling and I just knew that she would take care of everything – and she absolutely did! She performed the ceremony exactly how we had originally intended; like she had been involved every step of the way, and it went off without a hitch! I can only imagine how wonderful it would have been to work with her from the very beginning. Her words were so calming and she put us both at ease when she spoke. The ceremony was incredibly personal and we felt truly blessed to have her as our officiant. Our friends and family couldn't stop talking about how wonderful she was! If you are searching for the perfect officiant for your wedding, this is your girl! She made our wedding unforgettable, and we thank her from the bottom of our hearts!

Love Notes and specifically Reverand Zinser was a service I used to find an Officiant for my wedding. Love Notes referred me to Rev. Zinser. I could not have asked for a nice person. We met with him face to face and he has such a warm nature and seemed genuinely happy for our upcoming day!

This service is incredible because it provides you with an entire workbook with all sorts of different types of wedding ceremonies, tradtions, non-traditional things to add and everything in between. It helps you create and write your own ceremony, beginning to end. VERY HELPFUL!!!

I cannot say enough nice things about Love Notes and Reverand Zinser.

Buster Noah was a joy to work with and he really went the extra mile to make our wedding ceremony special. He met with us a couple times before the wedding and made sure he understood the unique elements of our ceremony. We incorporated a few Japanese elements into our ceremony and Buster was able to help us execute them perfectly. When I told him I had relatives coming in from Japan, he even asked about the proper way to greet them on the big day.

Buster Noah was a joy to work with and he really went the extra mile to make our wedding ceremony special. He met with us a couple times before the wedding and made sure he understood the unique elements of our ceremony. We incorporated a few Japanese elements into our ceremony and Buster was able to help us execute them perfectly. When I told him I had relatives coming in from Japan, he even asked about the proper way to greet them on the big day.

Efficient, flexible, memorable, and romantically lovely!

I highly recommend Rev Joe Zinser to any bride and groom who desires less stress and a beautiful ceremony on their wedding day!

Rev Joe Zinser gave my husband and I the perfect ceremony! I contacted LoveNotes on March 30th (Easter weekend) and they replied to my request within a day! My husband is in the military and we wanted something special, but we were in a time crunch and wanted to get married on April 6th.

LoveNotes put me in contact with Rev Joe Zinser and he contacted me right away! Not only was Rev Joe flexible and accommodating, but he wanted to give my husband and I a ceremony tailored to our desires! Rev Joe drove from the Dallas area to Wichita Falls on April 6th to perform our ceremony at 4:00pm and it was beautiful!

He truly was a delight to be around and we could not have been more happy with the services provided!

My husband is Persian, so we needed to incorporate a lot of Persian elements in our ceremony, while keeping the classic american traditions. Our officiant, Ken Byrd, with Love Notes, did an AMAZING job mixing those elements together and explaining the Persian ones to the american and other foreign guests. I'm so glad I picked Ken to do this. He was extremely professional and made me very calm the whole time.

Our officiant was Larry Maughan, and I could not have picked a more perfect person to marry us! Larry & everyone at LoveNotes were very professional but also very kind and personal. Larry took the time to get to know my husband and I, which was very important to us. We are not part of a church or any other religious organization, so we were afraid we'd have someone impersonal and very by the book. Larry made this whole experience about us - from writing our own ceremony to checking with us minutes before the ceremony to make sure we didn't have any last minute additions (and to help me calm down a bit ). Thank you Larry & LoveNotes for pairing us with him!

If you are having trouble looking for an Officiant like I did, look no further. Lovenotes is all you need. Their quality of service was spot on. When ever I needed something or had a question, I received a response quickly. Everything is laid out for you in a packet and all you have to do is pick and choose what you want. The officiant I had(Chris Marx) was great! Our guests wanted us to repeat our wedding just to hear Chris again! I am still receiving compliments about him two weeks after our wedding! I promise that you will not be disappointed by them!

We utilized the services of Al Taylor for our wedding on March 23rd. Al was very professional during this process and helped make the entire ceremony stress-free. Upon our initial meeting he clearly communicated and outlined what options we needed to choose as well as providing a detailed checklist of the various paperwork and filings we needed to complete with the State.

During the wedding weekend Al was excellent in the logistical aspect of lining everyone up correctly on the alter and he instructed the wedding party of the various stages of the ceremony so everyone would be familiar on the wedding date. He was very calm and confident and this really helped ease my nerves as I (the groom) was standing next to him before we were led out into the ceremony garden.

Thank you Al for everything and I would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family.

My wife and I could not be more pleased with LoveNotes and Rev. Dave Tucker, who served as the officiant for our wedding. We were truly blessed to have found Rev. Tucker. He guided us through the entire process - he really helped us put together a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that we will treasure with such happy thoughts for the rest of our lives. LoveNotes provided us with so many different ways to personalize our wedding ceremony; the resources that they provided us were very thorough and gave us lots of options for each part of the ceremony.

In the months leading up to our wedding, Rev. Tucker was always available to us whenever my wife and I had questions. He really made it a point to be as accessible to us as he possibly could. On the day of our wedding, Rev. Tucker could not have been more helpful to us. He answered all our questions, and guided us through how everything would work. The ceremony itself was amazing - it was everything and more that we had hoped for. My wife and I received so much positive feedback afterwards from our guests about Rev. Tucker. Everyone who attended our wedding was so happy with him.

Joe Zinger was the officiant at our wedding and did an excellent job! We felt very comfortable with him after meeting him. He is a warm and compassionate person, which made it feel almost as if he was our own pastor. Planning was very easy. He addressed all areas of concerns including asking if there was a wildcard person that had an opportunity to cause drama, in case things might go awry he would be informed ahead of time to make sure to handle it. (we had one, but luckily there was no issues). He did a great job guiding us through the ceremony process and I trusted everthing would go well and it did.

After having seen Marty in several of our friends weddings, I knew I was going to contact him and found Love Notes. Oddly enough, when I started looking for photographers and reviewing their portfolios, I started noticing Marty in the background of a lot of photos (so you know he has a lot of experience). Love Notes is highly respected, (ask any vendor in the wedding industry), with so many years of experience I trusted the format and character judgement of the other Love Notes ministers, plus I knew I had choice of officiants and tat Love Notes had backups . We were very please with Love Notes and Joe Z.

You cannot go wrong hiring Love Notes to officiate your wedding. From the moment we met with Marty we knew we were going to select him as our officiant. We just moved to Texas and did not join a church or knew a minister, so after some reseach we found Love Notes. Marty personalized our ceremony, and it was as if he had known us for years. My husband's mother and aunt wanted to know which church we joined to meet Marty, and were shocked to learn that we just met Marty. It is very easy to get in contact with Marty and he is very good at listening to the details we wanted to make our day special; he was prompt, professional, and very friendly. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have been any happier with the ceremony.

Marty from LoveNotes was THE BEST possible choice for us on our wedding day. I am so grateful to him for his flexibility and for how he put my mind at ease.
He lets you see & edit the script, so you know exactly what he is going to say during the ceremony.
Also, LoveNotes is a great choice if you are of a less-common faith. My husband and I are Christian Scientists, and wanted to incorporate readings from The Bible and our textbook. Marty had no problem at all with this, and was more than accommodating.
During the ceremony, Marty was so aware of when I was about to get emotional. Without being cheesy, he would say a little joke to make me (and the audience) laugh, lightening the mood. Thank goodness!
Marty also made a real effort to get to know the guests before the wedding, so he could relate and conduct a very engaging service.
I would absolutely recommend Marty (& LoveNotes) if you are looking for a professional, respectful and very personable minister. He could not have done a more wonderful job. I am so grateful to him.

He was also extremely professional and prepared. It was obvious he had spent a great deal of time preparing our ceremony to include everything we had requested and then adding his own personal touch to it. Although the ceremony was very moving, he always knew just the right time to say something funny to put everyone at ease. Additionally, the Love Notes wedding guide he provided was so complete that it made planning our ceremony very simple. We feel very fortunate to have been married by Marty and would recommend him without hesitation.

We had Ken Savage as officiant for our wedding - he was wonderful! He was professional, he was so at ease given all of his experience... which in turn put us at such ease! He was so genuine, so great at the rehearsal to get us all together on the same page. He was funny when it was needed and appropriate, and so very professional. He spoke loudly, clearly for those at the ceremony to hear and understand. I was so pleased that we had him marry us! I definitely recommend LoveNotes - I have a friend that was married by Marty, another married by Ken, and my sister was married by Mike - all with LoveNotes and all had such great experiences, as did we.

Tony Sanchelo was a great officiant! He helped us create the perfect bilingual wedding that felt very personal and special. We got very quick responses each time we emailed. It was very helpful to meet with him a couple of weeks before the wedding because we booked him very early on in the wedding planning process. He made us feel very at ease. He was always professional and on time for our meetings, the rehearsal, and the wedding.

I was so happy when he took the time to text me to tell me that he had taken an earlier flight and that he was already at the rehearsal.

Tony Sanchelo was a great officiant! He helped us create the perfect bilingual wedding that felt very personal and special. We got very quick responses each time we emailed. It was very helpful to meet with him a couple of weeks before the wedding because we booked him very early on in the wedding planning process. He made us feel very at ease. He was always professional and on time for our meetings, the rehearsal, and the wedding.

We had the wonderful privilege and opportunity to use LoveNotes, and Pastor Daniel Erickson for our wedding. From the moment we met Daniel, we had a connection with him! He is very professional, super responsive, and did a fabulous job helping us plan for our wedding ceremony, as well as at the rehearsal and at the ceremony itself. We HIGHLY recommend LoveNotes and Pastor Daniel Erickson! Feel so blessed to have found them and Daniel!

We originally had Marty Younkin be our officiant, but unfortunately I didn't let him know of our ceremony time change and thus he was already booked on another wedding. He quickly found a replacement for us and Ken Savage was our new officiant. For the price, professionalism, quality of service, you can't go wrong with hiring Love Notes!

Going into the wedding I was told by several people that if something does not go as planned, (flowers, candles, lighting etc), the guests will not notice. I strongly disagree with that comment. People WILL notice the officiant. Chris was noticed by everyone and everyone gave their compliments. He smiled, he laughed, he made us laugh and had a very relaxing presence which I found to be his best quality. If anyone I know is ever looking for an officiant, Chris Marx would be my answer.

This company is amazing! We knew we wanted an officiant that didn't feel like a stranger to marry us, but had no idea how to make that happen when we didn't know anyone. We contact the company from some referrals and deciede to meet with 3 different officiants. Just being able to do that makes the process very personlaized. We finally chose Russ Donley and even felt comfortable enough with him to take pre-marital classes, something we had previously decided against. The ceremony was beautiful and everyone commented on how heart felt it was, especially and most importantly my mother. Thanks again!

They were extremely helpful, very professional and very reasonable priced. A special thanks goes to Randy who drove in 2 hours of bumper to bumper traffic to make it to the ceremony. He did a masterful job as our minister... thank you Randy!

We really liked Marty Younkin, both at the time we met him and at the wedding. We liked being able to customize the vows by picking from his book, and we liked how he made the ceremony a mixture of seriousness and fun (after checking with us if that's what we wanted). He also sent an email afterwards asking us to update him on how we were doing, which I think is nice although it was too soon for us to reply right away. ;-) And he got the marriage license signed and sent to the county right away so it was returned to us by the time we got back from the honeymoon.

Simple, easy, wondeful! We contacted Love Notes and were paired with Rev. Mike Ryherd. Mike met us in person before the wedding and got to know us a bit on the personal level. Love Notes has a very systemized way of building your wedding ceremony. You can make it as unique as you'd like, or you can follow one of their "templates".

Mike was absolutely wonderful during our wedding rehearsal and wedding ceremony. He was very well versed and knew exactly what he was doing. The ceremony went by very smoothly without any hitches. I would highly reccomend using Love Notes to officiate your wedding ceremony.

Since my now husband and I are not members of any particular church, we were looking for an officiant for our big day! Marty came recommended to us from so many people: our venue, but also my sister-in-law. Our initial visit with Marty was great, he listened to us and provided feedback. That same day we decided that Marty will be our officiant. He was so easy to work with and our ceremony was exactly what we wanted: fun and upbeat! Since my family flew in from Germany and didn't speak English, Marty went the extra mile to learn a paragraph in German to make my family comfortable! It was beautiful and they really appreciated it! I would recommend lovenotes to everyone! Marty wrote a ceremony book that's extremely helpful as well in preparing the most important part of your big day!

This may sound like an odd way to pick an officiant, but I chose Randy Dicken because I liked his picture the best on the Love Notes website. He looked like the jovial nice guy he proved to be. He was fantastic at the rehearsal making it very light and fun cracking jokes. Though more serious on the actual wedding day, he helped calm our nerves by adding some well placed humor before and during the ceremony. We could not be happier with his part of our wedding and appreciate him being a part of our special day!

Lovenotes made coordinating and finding the perfect officiant and creating the perfect ceremony for our wedding easy and painless!

We used Daniel Erickson of Love Notes and were so pleased with him. Last minute we had to hire an officiant when our other officiant got sick. Pastor Erickson was so helpful, flexible, and generous during our wedding planning. We would recommend him and Love Notes to anyone in the Dallas area.

I cannot express how impressed I was with how well the wedding officiating went throughout our wedding. This was our second marriage and I couldn't have asked for anything better. It was from the heart, professional and very funny at the appropriate times. Marty was everything I wanted before, during and after the ceremony. I highly recommend Marty for your upcoming wedding.

We couln't have asked for a better officant. Marty and Lovenotes truly can make your special day more than you ever wanted. We did the Family Medallion Ceremony which we asked to be a surprise for my step daughter. She had no idea that was going to take place. We also had the rose cermony in place of the unity candle. Marty was absolutely amazing - we saw him in action at our friends wedding and new right then that was the person we wanted. Lovenotes is amazing vendor they will work with you on what kind of ceremony you want.

I could not have asked for anyone better than Marty for this very important day. We only had to meet with Marty for a very short time to know that he was the one we wanted to marry us. He has a way to customize your wedding to your liking which in out case was light hearted and a little bit humorous. He not only takes the time to get to know you but also gets to know your family. Our family and friends come from different religious backgrounds but he had everyone talking about how great he was. I would recommend Marty to anyone no matter what your background or style is, he will not dissapoint you.

Minister Marty was one of the best parts of my day!
What was so special was that when we met before the wedding, he really spent time getting to know me and my fiance. He didn't deliver a 'canned' ceremony, it truly had feeling and emotion based on how we feel about each other. Also, we wanted special things like we wanted mention of 'God' but not 'Jesus'... he was willing to make any changes or allowances to make sure that what we believe in was represented. I couldn't have felt more comfortable.
This man really really believes in marriage and loves to marry people... you can just tell.
Every single guest made it a point to tell me how funny, soothing, honest and perfect the minister was.
Minister Marty MADE my wedding and I will love him forever for it. My best friend was married by another of the ministers and it was just as awesome.

Ladies... stop your search here and just BOOK LOVE NOTES!! :)

He worked with us up until the wedding to make sure the ceremony was tailored to us. Rev. Byrd is a kind, funny, and wonderful man, and I would highly recommend Rev. Byrd to anyone who is interested in an officiant!

The online book that allows you to plan each part of your ceremony is wonderful, plus we added in our own poem. Minister was on time, well dressed, and performed the ceremony just as we wanted.

My husband and I cannot say enough things about Marty Youkin @ Love Notes. He instantly made us feel at ease when we met, and there was NO guilt about our having a mostly secular ceremony, which was key. Neither of us felt ties to any particular church or relgious group, and while I consider myself a spirtual person, my husband does not. How do you build a ceremony to join two people with different beliefs about the world? and without offending their families, who also, certainly have different beliefs about the world? Until I was recommended by our event coordinator to look up Love Notes, this was a point of significant anxiety for us both. Marty helped us create an ideal ceremony for our day, and it was awesome. It was just the right amount of reverence, humor, joy, and optimism for the future. Our guests enjoyed the ceremony and we keep getting comments that ours was the "most genuinely happy wedding they've ever been to", which, I've always thought, should be the point of weddings! You're already in love and committed-- so the wedding should be a celebration! In the light of Marty's guidance and personable character, it was easy to celebrate, and the ceremony was a perfect reflection of our love for each other. Anyway, I highly recommend working with Marty-- he made our wedding day truly enjoyable!

Of ALL the choices we had to make. And with planning a wedding there are many RANDY was the best choice, with absolutely no problems from beginning to end. Making our wedding very easy and comfortable and played such a big part in orchestrating the whole event.
Thanks Randy and Love Notes!

Daniel was so helpful throughout the process - answering our questions and meeting with us multiple times to collaborate and ensure that the ceremony was progressing successfully. On our wedding day, he served as an extremely calm and composed presence throughout our vows, making us both feel completely comfortable during this moment in front of our family and friends. We would certainly recommend Daniel to other couples looking for a terrific pastor for their upcoming nuptials.

At first, we had no clue where to look for an officiant for our wedding. We found that LoveNotes had wonderful reviews so we booked with Marty Younkin. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made. Even though we live out of state and only had the chance to talk to him through Skype before the wedding week, it seemed like we have known him forever when the day finally came. The wedding party knew exactly what to do, the ceremony was flawless and beautiful (lots of tears of joy!), he included bits of humor that really put a wonderful touch, just all in all perfect! We received so many wonderful compliments about Marty and the ceremony. We thank him so much for being a part of our special day.

Marty was great!!! He balanced just the right amount of humor. He made my husband and I very comfortable.

My wife and I decided upon LoveNotes immediately after meeting Rev. Ken Savage. He’s just an upstanding guy, very humble and understanding. We immediately felt at ease knowing that he would be our officiant at our wedding. LoveNotes is nice in that you have pre-set wedding ceremonies but you also have the option of customizing your ceremony however you would like. Rev. Ken was at our rehearsal and had great suggestions for us to let the ceremony flow even better. He was a very calming presence on the day of our wedding and we couldn’t be happier to have had Ken with us on our special day.

It was our great honor to have Marty officiate our wedding. He's the BEST! He made the whole planning process a breeze. On our wedding day, both my husband and I were very nervous before the ceremony. Marty was able to calm us down with some humor. Before our ceremony started, he also came to the bridal suite to ask what kind of 'mood' I'd want the ceremony to be. I told him "light-hearted", "funny" but traditional and he did just that without giving away the sacredness of our matrimony. Our ceremony proceeded exactly how we wanted (tender-hearted, funny and personable) and we could not be happier being married by Marty. Marty made an impression on many of our guests. Now, weeks after our wedding, our guests still remember and comment about how "special" our ceremony was. Of course, we give all credit to Marty. :-)

THANK YOU so much, Marty, for making our ceremony so special and memorable!

We would absolutely without a doubt recommend LoveNotes to future brides & grooms!

We would like to Thank LoveNotes and Rev. Ken Byrd for performing a Beautiful ceremony for our daughter's wedding March 31, 2012! From the moment our daughter and her husband met Rev. Byrd they knew he would be perfect! Their ceremony was filled with love, sweetness and some laughter; it was magical! Rev. Byrd really took time to get to know our daughter and her husband which made for a very personal ceremony. We can't tell you how many people felt he must have known them for years; we even had one friend say he had been to several wedding and our minister was the best, we couldn't agree more! Thank you LoveNotes and Rev. Ken Byrd for Blessing this special day!

We used Ken Savage with Love Notes as our wedding officiant and couldn't be happier! He was the first officiant we met with and we immediately went home and cancelled a couple of other appointments because we knew he was the best.

When you hire any Love Notes officiant, you get access to their book of ceremonies and several worksheets to fill out which was invaluable in our ceremony planning. It helped us customize our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted and gave us all the information we needed in one place.

Ken was great at our rehearsal, taking charge and making sure everyone knew what they needed to do. On the wedding day he was amazing, also. He knew exactly what he was doing and struck the perfect note between fun and sweet in our ceremony.

I highly recommend him!!

Ken Byrd from Love Notes was the officiant at our ceremony. Ken is warm and engaging from the minute you meet him and that comes across in the ceremony.

Ken worked with us to make sure the ceremony incorporated all the elements that we wanted. Additionally, my husband's family had asked us to incorporate some Korean traditions into our ceremony. Ken researched each of those traditions and spoke with my in-laws to make sure his plan was what they envisioned. It worked out beautifully. I am so glad we chose Ken to be a part of our special day.

From our first meeting with Ken, we realized there was nothing to worry about. He is an easy going guy that makes you feel calm and in good hands, but you can tell he is very organized and won't let anything slip by.

He has a great way of mixing the spiritual with the humor of the couple in an appropriate way. He also made a lively guest at the cocktail hour. So many of our guests commented on how much fun he was to hang out with during cocktails. He is a great conversationalist!

Our ceremony was personalized in every way. We had very specific wishes and Ken accommodated all of them while adding personal touches. Almost all of our guests commented that you could tell we, the bride and groom, were all over that ceremony. Many of the wives/girlfriends commented, "don't tell my husband/boyfriend but he cried like a baby and I've never seen him cry like that before, and your minister is so cool!"

We used Love Notes for our wedding this fall. I am happy to say that we are extremely satisfied with the services we received from Love Notes. Minister Chris Marx is very friendly, professional, and highly experienced. Our wedding couldn't have been any better. He responded quickly, addressed all of our questions very professionally and quickly. It was multi faith, multi culture wedding, and minister went out of the way to help us bind everything together and include things from both culture, and both faith. Everyone at our wedding told us that it was the best wedding they ever had been to. I am usually not the person to write a lot of reviews on the internet, but exceptional services we received motivated me to do write so. If you are future bride/groom, hope this review helps.

As you can probably tell by all the reviews, LoveNotes is an excellent choice if you are looking for an Officiant. For our wedding, we used Marty, and he was GREAT! LoveNotes creates the ceremony that YOU want. They don't tell you what they are going to do, they let you choose what you like, and you can create exactly what you want. All our guests commented on how great the ceremony was with Marty as the Officiant. Obviously, the ceremony sets the stage for the rest of the evening, so you want to go with someone that will get everything off to a good start. LoveNotes will do that for you.

Pastor Philip Pedroza performed our wedding ceremony and he was wonderful. We had the opportunity to get to know him for several months prior to our wedding and I am so thankful for that time. It made our wedding even that more special. LoveNotes was very professional and listened to everything we wanted. It was very important that we had a Christ-centered/Christian wedding and the pastor (and LoveNotes) listened and delivered to our request. The wedding was beautiful and we truly enjoyed getting to know Pastor Pedroza. He and LoveNotes will always have a special place in our hearts. Very professional organization. Very responsive and was always on time. Excellent experience!

My Husband Brad and I got married on October 23, 2011 in McKinney, Tx and had the pleasure of having Marty as our officiant. Marty was absolutely awesome!! He was always on time to our meetings and was always so easy to get a hold of. He answered all of our questions during the planning process and provided us with a clear view of what was to come on our wedding day. On the day of our wedding, he met individually with both of us before the ceremony, said a little prayer with each of us, and joked with us a little too- allowing us to relax. Per our request, he made our ceremony a little more relaxed and added some jokes in here and there to make people giggle. We would recommend Marty and his team to anybody who is getting married in the Dallas Area. Words cannot describe how much we appreciate all his work and how he made our wedding day so special. Thanks again Marty for everything!! :)

We found Love Notes at a Bridal show. I am so glad we did. They were excellent! They give you a ton of information so you can decide on how you want your ceremony to be. They are very responsive and helpful. Marty Younkin was the person who performed our ceremony. He was so good. He asked us if we wanted it to be fun or serious. Of course, we did fun and everyone loved him. He made us feel very comfortable being up there. We were both a little nervous. I would highly recommend anyone to use Love Notes as their Officiants for their wedding!

My husband and I are both Christians, but do not belong to a church so we decided to use this service. After meeting Chris for the first time, we felt very comfortable with him. All the information given to us was so helpful is planning our ceremony and Chris did a wonderful job at our wedding! He's a natural and very good at what he does. We received many compliments on him and our ceremony. This is a great service that we would totally recommend!

It's not every day a Groom will set aside some time and willingly jump on a wedding site. The reason being; Marty Yonkin. From every interaction, to the ceremony itself, Marty is the consumate proffesional. Despite his years of experience, despite the number of weddings he's done, he delivers, and makes you and your bride feel like the most unique, the most special couple he has ever interacted with.......Not to mention how fluid and genuine he comes across at the ceremony. His timing and delivery of witty jokes within the ceremony was perfect, and really kept our guests attention and gave a sense of calm to all including ourselves....Marty also allowed us to design our own ceremony excluding things, and inserting things as we saw fit......Now, with all that said, if you were to put my experience aside, let me tell you how I knew I had the best Minister in DFW. All the vendors I worked with, told me in advance. "Oh, you got Marty? Marty Yonkin? He's the best!"..."Most Ministers don't do well with a mic in the hand, but Marty Yonkin is the one exception to that rule",... etc...You will not be disapointed.

My husband and I were/are the luckiest people in the world to have crossed paths with Marty with LoveNotes. If I could rate them higher than a 5.0 I would! The ceremony was all that I could've imagined & more. It was absolutely amazing; and Marty was amazing. We have received so many compliments! “That was the best wedding I have ever been to”, “Who was your preacher, he was great!”, “Where can I find your preacher?”, “He was so great, he kept my attention throughout the entire ceremony!”….It was really nice to hear what others took away from the ceremony too (from Marty's words of wisdom-as some people called it). I would HIGHLY recommend Marty with LoveNotes.

We are so happy to have found Marty to officiate our wedding. He folded right in with our family and couldn't have made our day more special. Marty was not only the voice of reason when trying to wrangle a rehearsal and a voice of calm on our wedding day, he was a voice of humor during our ceremony which fit our family personality to a tee. We would recommend Marty to any and all brides looking for a great officiant who will truly make your wedding a special time of celebration. -- Emily and Andrew

The company is organized (i.e. the planning workbook) and professional. Keith Long did an amazing job. If I could give him a 6 out of 5 for responsiveness, I would.

A little example of his awesomeness: At the rehearsal, it was mentioned that witnesses on the license are optional, I asked if our mom's could sign. The following day after the ceremony and various pictures, Keith found me and handed me the license signed by him and our mothers. I had only mentioned it once, and he had accomplished it without me even noticing.

His organization and responsiveness were GREATLY appreciated by me.

Ken Byrd was our initial minister we were assigned we met with him several times and he was very flexible and willing to meet with us promptly. Ken had a family emergency the day before our wedding and Russ Donley ended up doing our service and rehearsal. We loved our expeirence with both Russ and Ken. Russ did a great job at the service and was very humorous and organized with the rehearsal. Ken also followed up with us afterwords. Even though Ken did not deliver it was the exactly same way we had described it when Russ delivered. We had a great expierence with Love Notes and would highly recommend.

Love Notes Weddings is the perfect solution for any bride or groom who does not already have an affiliation to any priest/pastor/minister or specific church, but still desires a wedding ceremony more personalized then those typically conducted by a justice of the peace. My husband and I are not a particularly religious couple, and since both of us have very demanding careers, we were both very appreciative and relieved when we learned about Love Notes Weddings and the services they provide. Specifically, Larry Maughan of Love Notes Weddings, made the entire process of constructing our wedding ceremony not only extremely easy and convenient, but he also worked with us to help customize and craft the exact atmosphere we envisioned for our ceremony. Larry is the kind of gentleman who makes you feel like he’s known you for years after the first five minutes you speak with him. Love Notes provides you with several “pre-assembled” ceremony options in a section-by-section format, including everything from the ceremony readings, the ring exchange, and even diagram templates for the entrance and exit of your wedding party. You are free to mix-and-match any of sections offered and/or create each ceremony section from scratch. Larry is a kind-hearted, polite professional, and conducted our ceremony with effortless excellence despite all of my desired ceremony customizations. I must also point out, the flexibility and affordability of the services offered by Love Notes Weddings is most impressive and appreciated. I would definitely recommend Love Notes and Larry in particular!

He gave us a book with all the essential wedding readings and let us pick out how our entire wedding would go. I loved being able to personalize my entire ceremony, and he gave us pointers on which readings worked best for us.

I would HIGHLY recommend him to everyone looking for an officiant!

From the beginning of the process to after the wedding, Marty always responded within 24 hours. He was flexible around our busy schedules (full time students and full time work!) and very professional. He must have turned in our marriage license in person because we received it back in no time! He made our big day very special as well. We asked for a laid back and fun wedding and that is what we got and more. He was serious or funny right when he needed to be. We are also not very religious and he was very accommodating and respectful of our wishes. Our friends and family loved him and thought he did a great job. I would highly recommend LoveNotes, and Marty if you can get him!!

The company and our officiant were great! Daniel was very personal and personable. Our wedding went perfect, the rehearsal went smoothly, and the ceremony was exactly what we wanted as we could build our own using the workbook Love Notes provided! When Daniel asked the day before the wedding if everything sounded alright, I asked if he could add a comment about "if anyone objects, jump in the lake" but to make it sort of classier. He did, and it was the perfect light-hearted start to make us and our guests more comfortable (and was way better than anything I would have written). Daniel and Love Notes was the perfect choice for us! :)

One of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning was hiring LoveNotes to officiate our wedding. I was a bit nervous about choosing someone to marry us since it's such an important and personal thing. We met Sonny Graham and he was just perfect. It seemed like he really took the time to get to know us, got our humor, and wanted to make the ceremony as unique and special as we wanted it to be. We got a book that had all these different types of ceremonies, marriage vows and traditions to choose from in order to make your ceremony completely customizable. This was great because we weren't stuck on a "cookie cutter" type ceremony. Sonny met with us a couple of weeks before the wedding to go over everything. On the day of the wedding we were so nervous and he was such a calming presence while also adding some humor to break the tension a bit. If you have any doubt about hiring an officiant, please go with LoveNotes and pick Sonny Graham if you can. Thanks so much!!

Love Notes is awesome. My husband and I married for the second time and had a small wedding. I spoke with Marty on the phone and he was the nicest man. Although the person we picked for our wedding was sick, there was another man who stepped in and took her place. Chris Marx was wonderful and personable. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and I would recommend Love Notes to anyone. They were awesome.

My husband and I wanted a non-traditional venue, so we started to look for a minister. Everyone kept recommending LoveNotes, so we checked them out...best decision ever! We always received very quick email responses and everyone we came into contact with was genuinely nice. When we met with Chris Marx for the first time, he immediately made us feel at ease and comfortable with him. We absolutely adore Chris and we love how he conducted our wedding ceremony. Everyone laughed, many cried tears of joy, and we couldn't be happier with our ceremony! I highly recommend LoveNotes, and especially Chris Marx!

We had Sonny Gann as our officiant and loved him! I was recommended to him by my wedding planner and couldn't be happier since he's so down to earth and funny! He met with us twice before to get to know us and go over exactly what we were thinking of for our ceremony. I like how Love Notes offers an online book that you can browse different ceremonies (a few include traditional, contemporary and a short and sweet version). I ended up combining some of the traditional and the contemporary and we did the the marriage vessel and rose ceremony (which I had to throw in a bachelor reference when Brandon gave me the rose haha). Sonny definitely put us more as ease on the wedding day and suggested the repeat after me for the vows and vessel/rose ceremony which was great because I would have forgotten what to say! Would highly recommend him as your officiant! :)

The ceremony is the most important part of your wedding and you want someone you can trust to do a great job at helping you with writing your vows, figuring out the order of your bridal party entrance, guiding your rehearsal... it's a huge deal - the reason you're even having a wedding. I recommend Marty, just as everyone I have encountered in DFW who works in the wedding industry. Look him up online, you're not going to find a single negative thing about him anywhere. Not only is he great at what he does, he loves doing it and you can tell! He is friendly, fun, professional... everything, and more, you could want an officiant to be.

Using Marty as our officiant on our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made. He was extremely professional but managed to keep the lighthearted feel and comfortable atmosphere we were going for at our wedding. After the ceremony, we had so many compliments from our guests who thought Marty had known us for years and had done such a good job! The funniest part was, we had just met him a few weeks prior. So if you are looking for someone to make a great impression on your wedding day....look no further!

Marty delivered a light-hearted and fun ceremony, which most resembled me and my husband. All of our guests absolutely loved him. I would recommend Marty and Love Notes Weddings anytime.

I was able to customize every detail of the ceremony from start to finish using Marty's book. It was so easy to go through and pick what I wanted/didn't want - I am thrilled and couldn't of asked for a better ceremony!! Everything was just perfect! :)

This company is amazing! I requested to meet the officiant I would have for the ceremony and on our first meeting, we immediately clicked and we talked for almost 2 hours.

Carol is the sweetest person ever and she is soooo good at her job. Her husband Marty is the person who responds to all emails and even though they perform countless weddings every year, he still manages to respond to emails within minutes. Any question I ever had was immediately responded to via email or telephone, no matter what time of day or night.

Carol and Marty also provided me with sooo much great advice regarding the ceremony. In fact, they even give you a book with all different kinds of traditional and special ceremony ideas. Because of all of these ideas, I was able to write my own custom ceremony from start to finish. And even though Carol had never performed a ceremony like it before, she nailed it!

She took the time to go over the whole ceremony with me before the wedding and since I told her I wanted the ceremony to be lighthearted and fun, she took it upon herself to ad-lib some transitions that made everything flow better and placed an enchanting air over the whole event. Carol is truly an artist...call her if you want an amazing ceremony that you will never forget!!

My husband and I are both Catholic, but for various reasons decided to get married at our venue and therefore needed a clergy person. Love Notes was recommended by a friend and I'm so glad she did! They made the process very easy, from the original request to meeting with our pastor to picking out what kind of ceremony we wanted. It was all very customizable which made it perfect for us, fitting our personality to a 't'. I received numerous compliments at our rehearsal as well as the wedding. Our day was so special and I'll never forget what a wonderful ceremony we had. Don't think twice about using Love Notes! You won't regret it! p.s. Ken Byrd was our pastor. He's wonderful!

My husband and I are in our late 50's - he is Jewish and I am Christian and neither of us intend to convert but want to embrace each other's traditions. We weren't sure who should marry us but when we met Marty Younkin our search was over. He created the most poignant, touching and humorous ceremony I have ever been to - even surpassing those I've seen on TV. Our guests were raving about the ceremony all night and still do 2 months later. Marty really made it special and we will always be grateful to have had him as our officiant. LoveNotes knows how to do it right!

We hired Russ from Love Notes to perform our wedding. Originally, we had other plans for an officiant which changed about 2 months before the wedding, so looking for an officiant was sort last minute. Russ was great. We were planning our wedding from a far... and he was there to answer every single question and concern we had whether it be over text or email. When we finally got into town before the wedding he met up with us and answered several questions putting our minds at ease about the big day. Needless to say, my stomach was in knots the day before the wedding, but after the rehearsal, I was not worried a bit. Russ led the rehearsal so perfectly that my husband, my family and I had had no doubts about the actual wedding going perfectly. I had several friends and family members tell me how impressed they were by him and that they want his information when they get married. Thank you so much Russ and Love Notes for making our day so lovely... we will never forget you!

Our officiant on our wedding day was Larry Maughan. He was very professional and courteous and asked our opinions on how we wanted him to perform our ceremony. Even when we had last minute changes to our ceremony the day before he took all of it in hand and performed it seamlessly the day of. Our rehearsal was on a Thursday in McKinney during rush hour traffic time and he arrived early. Also, our wedding the next day started at 7pm he also arrived early and made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. We highly recommend Love Notes and Larry Maughan to anyone needing officiant services.

a happy bride indeed!
LoveNotes was very informative from the get-go-- which is UBER helpful for us first timers getting married. We worked with Marty for our wedding ceremony, and couldn't have had a more pleasant experience. He lead our rehearsal in the quickest yet thorough manner, while also tailoring it to our specific needs. On the day of the ceremony, we ran a little late because of the hair dresser.. and Marty was there to ease all of our anxiousness and gave out a ceremony with lighthearted feel which I definitely needed. He asks you how you'd like the tone of the wedding. If you are ever in need of finding an officiant, you will definitely not be disappointed with them!

Marty was our officiant for our New Years Day wedding. Besides taking time out for us on a holiday, Marty made the entire process so special for us. He offered his time to meet with us before the wedding as much as we needed to get to know one another and individualize our ceremony. Marty did such a wonderful job of putting us at ease on that altar and in the months, days and hours leading up to it. Everyone has not stopped talking about what a wonderful job Marty did. He is truly a caring a special person.

Marty the Minister, as we affectionately referred to him, played a key role in organizing our wedding. He provided guidance via email docs that walked me through the preparation of everything we needed to do for the ceremony, saving us invaluable time.
We made particular note that Marty showed remarkable sensitivity during the presentation of our vows, sprinkling humor where appropriate and adding some unexpected depth to our self-written script. He was simply wonderful. I would not recommend any other Officiant. Our ceremony was as perfect as could be. We give most of the credit to Marty and his organization.

Reverend Randy Dicken was perfect! During our initial meeting he put us right at ease. We were so impressed by him that we booked him right away and paid in full!

Love Notes allows you to completely customize your wedding ceremony, so that you get exactly what you want and your personalities are well-represented on your special day.

Our guests felt that the ceremony was right on so many levels: the right venue, the right minister, the right length of time...people were so moved by the ceremony that they were asking for the scriptures and the readings!

We highly recommend Love Notes to any bride and groom!

We hired LoveNotes for our ceremony. It was a super decision to do so.

Marty was great to work with. LoveNotes provides you with a script, with many many options that are easy to maneuver through. If you want a very formal ceremony, or would like to think through options, Marty is flexible and talks through the options with you...and that is before the ceremony...

During the ceremony itself, you find yourself with a very genuine and caring minister. Marty was very involved with the words in the script, and did not just go through the motions. I had several people after the ceremony ask me how long I had known Marty because he made it feel like he really knew the both of you...When I told them we just met, they told me that he did not speak with emotions of someone he just met...rather, it was perceived by our attendees that Marty was a family friend, and projected that during the ceremony.

If asked, I would certainly hire again!

Keith was so wonderful. Originally we were scheduled with Ken, but a family emergency caused us to switch. (Ken gave us plenty of notice and Keith immediately met with me to make sure I was comfortable.) Keith has a great attitude and a good sense of humor. He did the ceremony exactly as I wanted it, and made it fun instead of a boring monotone. Although he is personally very religious, we did not want a religious ceremony and he didn't try to do that at all. I have recommended him to a friend that is engaged. We really liked him.

Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful due largely in part by Marty. I wanted our guests to feel the love during our ceremony and with Marty's help this was accomplished. He is very personable and did an outstanding job sentimentally engaging our guests especially my husband and I! I enjoyed picking from his ceremony selections which allowed us to tailor our ceremony to "us" instead of the standard cookie cutter wedding. Marty came into the bridal suite before the ceremony to check on me which was very comforting. I highly recommend him and only hope another bride will have the pleasant experience as I did!

He is very personable and did an outstanding job sentimentally engaging our guests especially my husband and I! I enjoyed picking from his ceremony selections which allowed us to tailor our ceremony to "us" instead of the standard cookie cutter wedding. Marty came into the bridal suite before the ceremony to check on me which was very comforting. I highly recommend him and only hope another bride will have the pleasant experience as I did! Read less

Rev. Ken Byrd was amazing. My fiancee was deployed when I first met Ken, I lived in Houston, we moved to Colorado, then to El Paso... All while planning a wedding with Ken in Dallas!! He was so patient while we sorted everything out. The company's approach and help with the ceremony was invaluable and Ken did an amazing job. He really took time to talk to us and get to know us, he added great personalization into the service and made our big day really special. Thanks Ken!

Rev. Marty Younkin performed our ceremony and I could not have asked for more. Their system allowed us to personalize our wedding ceremony in a way appropriate for our family. He was kind, funny, and eloquent, and made it seem not at all awkward that we never met before the rehearsal (due to my living out of town). I would definitely recommend him.

Marty was absolutely fabulous!!!!!! Everyone commented on how relaxed and enjoyable the ceremony was. We even received comments from family and friends who were able to watch the live webcast (via our venue) on how much they "loved the officiant!" He was funny and kept things going smoothly and humorously as our two year old son ran around us. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever attended and Marty deserves A LOT of credit for that!

I will recommend him over and over again! He was very quick at returning phone calls and e-mails and was very flexible and understanding when we had a medical emergency threaten to put everything on hold at the last minute.

I also loved having his web-site and book to use when arranging the ceremony. It made everything so easy and convenient.

Love notes is absolutely the BEST!!!!

We loved working with LoveNotes for our wedding. We were given a workbook to create our perfect ceremony, from processional to readings, to recessional. The staff was awesome, especially Dr. Carol Sage, our minister. We were looking for a bilingual minister- my personal wish was for a female, and she was perfect! She was amazing during rehearsal and helped us feel confident about the wedding ceremony. During the wedding she didn't just read from a script (although I'm sure she would have if we wanted that), she interacted with us and made everyone laugh (when appropriate), while maintaining the integrity/sacredness of the ceremony. I highly recommend LoveNotes Ministries as a place to find professional, passionate officiants to anyone in the market.

Carol Sage of LoveNotes did a wonderful job for our wedding! She met with us before the wedding so we felt very comfortable going into the "big day." We were able to personalize our ceremony, so we were confident our wedding would be perfect! Carol made our rehearsal fun and enjoyable for the entire wedding party. Our ceremony was everything we had hoped it would be and more! Carol made us feel so comfortable and added the perfect amount of humor to our ceremony to keep the guests engaged. People came up to us afterwards remarking on how great the ceremony was and said they themselves even got something out of it. Thank you to LoveNotes and Carol for making our wedding ceremony everything we could have hoped for! - Kristin & Trevor Cone

My husband and I were stressing about our pastor not being available for our wedding date so I searched and found Love Notes on the web. I can't explain in words how thoroughly pleased we were with this company. Not only were they perfectly accommodating but in my opinion Marty did a better job than my pastor would have done. He gave such a wonderful touch to our ceremony and made me relax with his confidence. I am a perfectionist and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome of my ceremony. Marty and his associates were one step ahead on every detail.

Thanks so much Love Notes!
