Having little to no idea of exactly what we wanted for our wedding ceremony there was one thing we were sure of, we wanted to be present and have our friends and family feel engaged as well. From our first meeting I knew we were in great hands. Chuck immediately put us at ease and started some wonderful conversations not only about our ceremony, but about our relationships in general. He brings a fresh, calming, fun and very spiritual approach to planning a wedding ceremony and I absolutely LOVED our charge he delivered just for us - completely tailored and personal. After attending MANY weddings myself I will also add there were no cliche sayings (ie: may the sun be at your face and the wind be to your back...etc.), truly unique and special. Chuck also offers a light approach to the introduction to the teachings of the New Church. If you are looking for a "home" church Chuck is a wonderful Pastor at New Church Live and provides so many fun ways to get involved with the community. I would highly recommend Chuck Blair to anyone looking for a spiritual, personal and fun approach to a wedding ceremony.

Where is the sixth star to click? Rev. Chuck Blair was without a doubt, the difference-maker for our marriage. Read that carefully, he was more than a wedding vendor. He a guide, a mentor, a pastor, a counselor, a friend. From the first day we met him at the New Church Live to the followup after our wedding day, Rev. Chuck helped us more fully understand the blessing of marriage, unify two not precisely aligned religious backgrounds, and asked all the right questions to bring us closer to one another (something we didn't think was possible!). He was fun, funny, improvisational, and yet absolutely reverent, meaningful, an inspirational. We would highly recommend Rev. Chuck Blair.

He was very flexible with our discussions during our meetings with him. Our service was very personal to us as a couple. He was very supportive during the preparations for our wedding and also after. After sharing his stories, thoughts, and experiences about marriage, we felt more prepared for and confident about our marriage. As a person, he is accepting, laid back, lighthearted, and fun.

My husband and I chose to get married around the Philadelphia area, which is where neither of us grew up. As a result, one of the most concerning decisions for our wedding was who would officiate the ceremony. Reverend Chuck was recommended to us through our venue (Cairnwood Estate) and once we met him, all my reservations of having someone "new" in our lives officiate our wedding disappeared. He gives you the option to meet with him multiple times before the wedding and it was the best decision we made. As the wedding day crept closer, the meetings with Chuck were a great time-out for my husband and I to focus on what was truly important: us, our marriage, our future together, and our dreams. It is now almost three weeks since our wedding and I am still getting compliments on how beautiful and loving Rev Chuck's charge was and I honestly do not think there was a dry eye watching. I highly recommend Chuck, not only as a great officiant but as a great mentor and friend to have throughout the wedding process. -Marci and Mike, 4-27-2013

We found New Church Wedding through WeddingWire and couldn't have been more lucky to meet Chuck! We started by going to one of his services to see how he preached and then met him for lunch to discuss wedding details. Over the year, we met with him several times where we gave us "homework" assignments (which we loved and had so much fun with!) and we really feel the meetings helped us to grow stronger as a couple. Chuck has such a personality! And he brought such a special spark to our engagement, rehearsal, and ceremony and truly helped to make our wedding ceremony beyond memorable for our families, friends, and especially us. When we met Chuck, we didn't just find our wedding officiant, we found a friend, confidante, and supporter unlike no one else.

Working with Chuck as our Officiant was the best thing that Pat and I could have done for ourselves. He helped us recognize special things about ourselves and each other and things we needed to work on, alone and together. His ceremony was phenomenal. Never have I seen pictures of a ceremony where the guests are leaned forwarded, smiling and engrossed in what was being said.

We feel truly blessed to have had Reverend Chuck to marry us. He is a very special man that helped us to truly appreciate and enjoy the true meaning of our unity. We hope to continue to have him as a part of our growing lives together.

Chuck was everything we could have hoped for in an officiant. His humor, kindness, and reassurance made planning our ceremony stress free and easy to manage. His insight and experience lend themselves to thoughtful and creative discussions that enriched our experience and led us to have a unique ceremony that felt authentic and true to our individual beliefs and values. If you are looking for an open minded person who is genuinely interested and invested in helping you create a ceremony that not only meets but surpasses your expectations, then this is your guy. After my wedding we heard from our friends and family that it was hands down the most meaningful and enjoyable ceremony they had ever witnessed. Choosing to work with Chuck was definitely one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding... you will NOT regret it!

Our wedding was on August 7th, 2010 and till this day all of our guests continue to talk about the magic that surrounded them during our ceremony at the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. Our officiant, Chuck Blair, is not what I call the "typical" officiant. From the moment you meet him his genuine care for those around him is contagious. He allows the bride & groom to reflect on themselves as well as their partnership together. He is not judging and brings the New Church philosophy to life as his words simply capture your souls. During our wedding ceremony he gave voice to our love and an incredible understanding of who we and the world around us are. Our guests were speechless to how well Chuck connected with us and with them as our guests. If you are looking for an unforgettable and ethereal experience, I highly recommend Chuck Blair and a New Church Wedding.

To be married by someone who would allow us to express our thoughts about love, life, marriage, and the future in our own words was among our highest priorities. It was within minutes of meeting Reverend Chuck Blair that we knew we had found someone special. We didn’t realize, however, that we had found a true renaissance man. In addition to providing his wisdom, his insights, and his guidance, Chuck also became a mentor and confidant. He brought us to a much greater understanding of the sanctity of marriage and to what it meant to be committed to one another. Most importantly, Chuck Blair became a friend whose humor, wit, and wisdom bound us together on our wedding day.

Having a New Church wedding was such an amazing experience for my husband and I during our 2010 wedding. We had Reverend Blair as our officiant but he was much more to us than that. He was a mentor and a great friend throughout the entire processing. Having Reverend Blair by our sides during that special day and the time leading up to it was such a blessing. He helped us through many good and bad times and provided guidance that is so valuable to us. A New Church wedding was the best thing we could have done for our special day as it helped us become more spiritual and close in our relationship. We are very close with the Reverend still and thank God for him and all the support he has offered us.

Rev. Chuck Blair did a fantastic job listening to the type of wedding and ceremony thta we were looking for and personalized the ceremony to taylor it to us. My wife and I still keep in touch with Rev. Blair and now consider him a friend. I would have not expected this prior to our marriage.

Rev. Blair did a wonderful job supporting my finace and I in planning our ceremony, but his real strength lies in his ability to get couples to talk about their relationship and their future marriage. He still checks in on us and even baptized our daughter.
