Your wedding should be what you want it to be. I have 37 years experience as an ordained Baptist minister and college professor of comparative religion. It has been my honor to officiate 100s of weddings of all types: religious, secular, mixed faith, traditional, brief, contemporary, alternative, sophisicated. I can help you develop a customized ceremony that fits your dreams and personalities.

I cooperate fully with your other vendors so that they can fully use their skills to provide you with the wedding you have requested. My goal is to bring the occasion all the dignity it deserves as the biggest day of your life while using humor to keep everyone relaxed and make it the biggest celebration of your life. Read less

I had no real vision for our ceremony except that I wanted it to be non-religious, and Perry took care of everything.

I can't say enough nice things about Rev. Perry. We found him based on a referral and he met up with us the next week! After meeting him we knew he would be perfect for our wedding. Once contracted he sent us lots of examples of things to choose to put in our ceremony and was very helpful when it came to questions. And so our wedding day came and so did Hurricane Matthew, but that didn't stop us! We were going to get married under this big beautiful tree and when I woke to rain, at first I was so sad. But once we made a few phone calls, we were back on track. The ceremony took place in the barn instead, and Rev. Perry being the fantastic officiant he is, changed up our ceremony and took out a part and replaced it with a tree ceremony. We wound up having a small sapling in our ceremony and put dirt over its roots. We had not practiced this at all, but it went so smoothly, no one knew that it was a brand new addition. Rev. Perry is also so kind and down to earth, he was so easy to talk to. He is completely worth your time and money and you won't be disappointed one bit.

Perry is truly wonderful, no matter what you're looking for! When I told him right before our wedding rehearsal that my husband wanted the ceremony to be less religious (which can be an awkward thing to tell a minister), he was totally flexible and showed us a few things we could change to make the ceremony fit our vision better. I was so relieved that he was always calm and collected, even when we threw last-minute changes at him! While my husband and his best man were waiting for the ceremony to start, Perry waited with them and helped him through those last pre-wedding jitters. Our whole ceremony went really smoothly and his warm presence made it easier for both of us to enjoy the moment. His fee was very reasonable for the wonderful service he provided, especially since he had to drive 45+ minutes for our rehearsal and wedding!

Perry is so wonderful! I came across Rev. Perry Hardison when I was scrolling through Wedding Wire. At our initial meeting, we discussed what kinds of things my husband and I wanted to be included in our ceremony. Perry made sure to meet all of our unique requests and flawlessly tied all of the pieces together. He tailor-made our vows and did a wonderful job at the ceremony. He attended our rehearsal so that we were all on the same page and were able to do a run-through the day before so that there were no questions. He even printed out our vows and put them in a folder for my husband and I to keep. He is incredibly affordable and worth every dollar- I very highly recommend Rev. Perry Hardison. He is a joy to be around and we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you, Perry!

Rev. Perry Hardison was very patient and helpful during our wedding. He answered all of our questions before, during, and after the ceremony, and was completely fine with us writing our own wedding script, so we could make it what we wanted. He took the time to fill out our ceremonial marriage license, as I hadn't had the time. And his pricing was very fair, I highly recommend using him!

Perry is amazing! We knew from the moment we met him that he was the perfect person to marry us. His southern charm and easy-going personality were exactly what we were looking for. Before meeting Perry, the thought of crafting a ceremony felt like a daunting task. Perry made the process very easy and helped us create a ceremony that felt unique to us. He was instrumental in helping coordinate efforts at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. At the rehearsal, he gave advice to the wedding party (when to start walking down the aisle, where to hold your flowers, etc.) and told them what they could expect on the big day. On the wedding day, he helped coordinate efforts not only with the wedding party but with my other vendors as well. Most importantly though, Perry was incredibly supportive of my husband and I. You could tell he genuinely cared about us as a couple. I couldn't of asked for a better officiant for our wedding!

My husband and I needed to find an officiant in the Raleigh/Durham area; however, we live overseas. We found Perry and could not have been happier! He was extremely helpful, efficient and flexible. He responded to us immediately and eased all of our concerns. We didn't officially meet Perry in person until the rehearsal, but we both felt like we had known him for years. He was able to make our ceremony special and unique to us. Many of our guests commented on how thoughtful and meaningful he made our ceremony. We would highly recommend him for any and everyone!

It was officiant love at first sight!! We knew within the first few minutes of meeting him that he was perfect for us! He is very professional but is also funny and easy going. Our ceremony was beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant to marry us! Standing in front of a bunch of people is very nerve wrecking but Perry made me feel very comfortable and kept things light hearted which made me feel much more relaxed about standing on stage. You wont regret hiring Perry and he will give you exactly the ceremony you were dreaming of!

Reverend Perry was a great officiant. He didn't butcher my husband's last name, he worked with me when I told him I wanted to write our ceremony myself and gave me a guide to do so, and he showed up on time and filed our wedding documentation on time. And for the price we paid, I couldn't have been happier with anyone else.
