Rev Sam was incredibly responsive, helpful, flexible, kind, and easy to work with. When planning a wedding there are few things better than a great vendor and Rev Sam is just that! He gave us several services to choose from but gave us full reign to edit these or even write our own service. He gave us suggestions when asked which was so helpful. We were able to do the counseling he sent us on our own time from the other side of the country which gave us a discount on our marriage license but was also a fun and helpful experience during our engagement. Planning a wedding from an opposite coast had it's ups and downs and Rev Sam was one of the things that helped make it the perfect day! Thank you Rev Sam!

Reverend Sam was very accommodating and flexible. He was professional yet friendly and was able to relate to our friends and family. He is a professional in every sense of the word and truly knows what he is doing. I would recommend Reverend Sam 100% for any occasion.

I would like to thank Rev. Sam for his fantastic service at our wedding. He arrived an hour early, well prepared, and took into consideration the fact that my fiance and I did not want to see each other before our event (for good luck). His years of experience in the industry shone through throughout the day and he went above and beyond for our wedding. My fiance and I did not hire a coordinator (small wedding), and Rev. Sam took on this responsibility for us without being asked, and led our wedding in such a way that made my fiance and I feel very calm and looked after. He was a very nice, very calming officiant and we would recommend him to any couples. His fee was excellent and we feel we received a service above and beyond what we would have paid for elsewhere at the same price.

'I cannot express with words how pleased my new husband and I are, as well as our families, with being lucky enough to have Reverend Sam officiate our service. He provided us with information and allowed us to put together a wedding ceremony tailored to US, rather than a cookie cutter ceremony. Personally, he was there for me every step of the way--calming and reassuring, always maintaining the highest degree of professionalism while still being warm, personable and relatable.
The words we heard over and over from our families and friends regarding Rev Sam were, "This man knows his stuff." And he does. He will always remain dear to our hearts and we'll be using him again in a year for a vow renewal, or later on for perhaps a christening. He was amazing---and I highly recommend using him for ANY service.

Rev Sam performs traditional, civil, or whatever kind of ceremony you might be wanting for a very reasonable price. He has performed so many weddings that he is a great reference for you during your wedding planning stage and on the day of the ceremony. Everyone told us how special and sweet our ceremony was- and we have Rev Sam to thank for it!

Although Rev. Sam certainly knows the wedding business, I was a tad put out about the rehearsal. After being told that he had a 9-5 job and wouldn't be able to make it to my rehearsal, I carefully and methodically planned out the rehearsal and ceremony myself so that I could effectively run our rehearsal. The day of the rehearsal, however, I was surprised to see Rev. Sam at the chapel and wanting to run the show. I had done so much work and had thought through all of the details that were important to my husband and I, only to feel like he was taking over. Not only did he take over, but we ended up owing him more money because he showed up at the rehearsal. I think that the whole thing could have been handled more professionally. With that being said, had the communication been better about this, I probably would have ended up much happier with his services.
