As an ordained Roman Catholic priest, I was privileged to served the Church in several parishes in Central New York for over 35 years. Then, in 2004, Linda and I married! During the next two years, I received a number of requests to officiate at weddings. Because I can no longer represent the Church in any official capacity, I joined an organization of married priests called CITI Ministries, and also the International Council of Community Churches, which provides me with the license to perform weddings in the USA. Our CITI Ministries website www.citiministries.org offers a summary of our origins, our history, and our goals, as well as a Directory of our members. Linda and I have been privileged to participate in many weddings at many different venues, indoors and outdoors, throughout NY State. We have helped Catholics and other couples with various religious or no religious backgrounds, to have a wedding ceremony that uniquely expresses their commom beliefs and understanding of marriage, and in the venue of their choice. When possible, we prefer to meet with prospective couples so that we can get to know each other and to better serve them. We are happy to say that most of our couples have been deeply pleased with our services. I will be very happy to speak with you more about what services I am willing to provide as well as my availabillity for your wedding date. You can reach me at 315-338-1805, or 315-697-2257, or at AFTosti@gmail.com. Read less

Michael and I were married earlier this month on 11/4/16. Throughout the entire planning process, Rev. Tony was very responsive and extremely helpful to create the perfect ceremony. All of our guests loved that we incorporated aspects from both of our religious beliefs, simply magical!

Working with Rev. Tosti was a wonderful experience. We found him on WeddingWie, and reached out to him based off of the rave reviews. Boy, was everyone right. We met with him at his home for the first time, and knew instantly he was the right fit for us. Communication is very important to us, so when we would write Reverend with questions/concerns, I would receive a response within a couple hours, if not immediately. For me, this was gold. He talked us through every step and we were so comfortable the day of. Rev. Tosti performed the most romantic, appropriate, and personal ceremony for us, and honestly, it could not have been better. We cannot say enough about working with Rev. Tosti and his lovely wife! - Ashley & Brent

fr. Tosti was an incredible officiant! My husband and I had decided not to marry in the Church, but I still wanted to incorporate God and faith into our ceremony. As Catholic priests don't typically perform ceremonies outside of the church proper, I was struggling to find someone who fit the bill. In exploring WeddingWire, I discovered fr. Tosti. He is a retired Catholic priest who continues to officiate weddings, but not under the auspices of the Catholic Church. Check out his website for more information on those details.

He is a kind, interested and enthusiastic man and his wife Linda is equally lovely! We met with them in their home to discuss the ceremony, and had several email and phone conversations in preparation for the wedding. He is very responsive to email. The ceremony was personal and beautiful. Guests (including some family members who were hoping we would have opted for a traditional Catholic wedding) could not say enough wonderful things about how touching and special our ceremony was. We owe an enormous thank you to fr. Tosti for helping to make our celebration so special!

My husband and I were married by Rev Tosti on September 2, 2016. Tony had married 2 close friends of ours, and after meeting him as a maid of honor back in 2013, I knew that there was something special about him and Linda. They are such kind people and they both go above and beyond to get to know you. Even after those years had passed and several hundred marriage ceremonies had been performed - Tony remembered my good friends when they reconnected at our wedding, and several details about who they are as a couple. Tony is very organized and detailed about conducting his ceremonies, and I had all the confidence in the world that he would make the moment we got married even more incredible, and I was right! Tony and Linda, thank you both so much for sharing this wonderful memory with us. We were honored to have you there, and hope to see you again someday soon!

So far, I haven't met with him yet, but Tony seems to be very personable over the phone. We are actually going to meet with him today, but we are pretty sure he is going to be a perfect fit for the wedding. Thank you weddingwire for introducing us to this site and all of these wonderful vendors!
