LOVE CONGRATULATIONS!!!
What a special moment this is for the both of you! Please allow me to help build your ceremony that will express who you are and the love that you share. I am an Ordained Minister that understands the importance of offering a service to all faiths. I believe in the power of love and the symbiotic ties we all share with one another. My warrant in this life is to live through love, hope, and peace. What better way to do that then to be apart of the greatest of all exchanging of gifts; the giving of a couple’s gift of love to one another.
My hope is that the translation of a couples love through a wedding will flow out from the ceremony into everyone’s lives.Therefore, continuing to grow into the community.The power of love can solve the toughest of grievances, heal the oldest of wounds, and conquere the greatest mountains of pain.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
I care about the Bride and Grooms needs. I believe that the power of love does not have religious boundaries. Therefore, I do not judge I except all faiths. From civil ceremonies to Christian, my desire is for the harmony of your love to flow through your service! There are few moments of greatness in our lives like that of falling in love and binding that passion through marriage. On paper, marriage is a contract, but in reality, it is a spiritual tether binding two souls. Once love has been discovered between two people a resolution is needed to legitimize their love. This declaration is a wedding ceremony; a gathering of friends and family to witness and legalize the love that two people share. We come together to assert the value of marriage that becomes the foundation of healthy families, healthy children, and a healthy community. The ceremony is a statement and moment that will remain archived in their hearts and minds forever. Being a part of that elation is just one of the many reasons we love joining people in matrimony. With every ceremony we witness, we feel the symbiotic ties of the community that have come together to rejoice the beginning, and the introduction of two lives as one. This is a passion and a calling, which allows us to share in the happiness of others, compelling us to assure that this special moment is a credible, and a wonderful experience that will be remembered forever.

I am a Certified Ordained Minister who performs ceremonies of of types: Religious, Traditional, Contemporary, Vow Renewal, Civil, or Commitment. If you are thinking of having an outdoor wedding, a wedding at a special location, or a wedding at your home give The RingUnion Family a call. If you would prefer a Minister to perform your wedding ceremony over a Justice of the Peace, RingUnion is the solution. I invite you to contact me directly at 678-313-9166. Email me as well, if you would prefer, at ido@ringunion.com. I am here to help. I wish everyone the very best and have fun!

Can't say enough nice things about this wonderful man! He is possibly mine and my husband's favorite vendor of our whole wedding and reception. He is patient, warm, understanding, organized, flexible and full of options and ideas to help customize the ceremony that reflects you as a couple or, in our case, family. He put together a beautiful little dedication to our daughter so that we could include her in ceremony in a very special way. We love him and you will too. Thank you so much Rev. Cookson!

Reverend Cookson performed our ceremony and did a great job. We met with him once to make sure we would be comfortable with him and then decided to hire him. He provides several different ceremony ideas/options for you to mix-and-match to create your own ceremony or he will come up with some suggestions for you. We ended up using a ceremony we found online and modified to suit our needs and he was very open to using that instead of the more traditional ceremony wording. Overall, we were very pleased with Reverend Cookson and would highly recommend him.

We were really honored and pleased to have Reverend Cookson perform our wedding ceremony. He had a very nice long meeting with us prior to our wedding. His focus is on performing a ceremony that is tailored to the individual couple. If you want a civil ceremony, he will do that. And if you want a very religious ceremony, he will do that. He wants to make sure the ceremony reflects the wishes of the couple. His focus was the love two people have for each other and celebrating this. He was always on time and even early for the rehearsal, meetings, and most importantly the ceremony. We had complete trust in him and we would recommend him to any couple. Also we could tell that he took his role very seriously but kept us laughing as well. Thank you Reverend Cookson for everything!

Brian was absolutely amazing! He helped us figure out what type of ceremony that fit us and our personalities plus what made both of our families comfortable. My husbands dads side of the family is Jewish, his moms is catholic. Plus my family is presbyterian. Ugh talk about confusion. Brian made everyone feel at ease. We wanted to have our ceremony about our love for each other and how it will continue to grow, we look back every day at our vows and are very please at what we chose. Thank you Brian for all of your hard work!

My Fiance (husband now!) and I decided to have a non-denominational wedding ceremony since we were combining two faiths, Judiasm and Christianity, and wanted to keep it simple and more of a representation of our love together.

I was nervous about finding someone to marry us because we were essentially 'shopping online.' I met and spoke with several people and started to feel like i wouldn't find the right person with the right price for my budget. My fiance and I met with Brian Cookson and I immediatley knew that he was the one. He made us feel so comfortable. He was organized, charming and professional. He said that he could tell we really loved each other was very important to him- i loved that!

He was willing to answer any of our questions during the planning and was very helpful with making the ceremony fit what we wanted. He even searched for the author of a poem i wanted to use - after i had given up in trying to find it myself!

The ceremony was amazing and Reverend Brian was wonderful. At the reception, the first thing everyone (i mean everyone - all ages, all faiths) said to us was how beautiful the ceremony was and how wonderful Reverand Brian was. Everyone thought that he must know us! We're still getting compliments!

I'm so pleased to be sharing this with other online shoppers for a wedding officiant - I think it is a very daunting task to find the right person- and there are so many people out there, its hard to know where to start. I hope this helps many brides!

I cannot say enough good things about Reverend Brian Cookson. From the very beginning, he took the time to talk to me about any questions or concerns about things both wedding related and non wedding related. The first time I met with him, we talked for hours and I felt like he was an old family friend. I talked with several ministers before I met him and many had that "holier than thou" attitude, but he was so open-minded and supportive. I believed in my marriage even more because he believed in us. I felt lucky to have his blessing. Also, as all of us brides do, I had gone WAY beyond my budget for the wedding, and he worked with me on the price of his services. I can't thank him enough and I recommend him to every bride that I can.

From the very moment we met Reverend Brian, we felt at ease. He took time to meet with us and answer every single one of our questions, no matter how small or silly it may have sounded! We requested a Christmasy, short, sweet ceremony and with just those three words, he created the perfect wedding ceremony script! We simply gave him a quote and he gave us an amazingly heartfelt, touching service. He was early for both our rehearsal and our wedding and always returned our calls the same day. I definitely suggest Rev. Brian for your wedding officiant needs!

Reverend Brian Cookson was the best! My fiance was leaving the country in one week, so needless to say we were in a hurry! I emailed him late one Monday night and he responded right away and continued to walk me through his services and pricing online throughout the evening while we were discussing our options. We decided to book him to perform our ceremony that evening as he was so great to work with, professional and helpful. The next day we recieved everything we needed to put together the perfect ceremony, vows and ring exchanges! He makes it all so easy. On Friday we had the ceremony in our own home, which is what I wanted, and he was brillant! On time, prepared, sweet as can be and a lot of fun to work with. The ceremony was perfect (and he even threw in a last minute change for me!). If you are looking to book an officiant who will make your special day perfect, I HIGHLY recommend Reverend Cookson!

Rev. Brian was great, I would recommend him as an Officiant to anyone. He worked with us to make the ceremony exactly what we wanted, he was very professional, and very caring about us as a couple and making us happy. Thank you for a wonderful ceremony!

Rev. Brian Cookson was amazing!!! He was so personable, friendly, professional and wonderful! There aren't enough kind words in the English language to describe how comfortable and happy he made my husband and I on our wedding day! He helped us to pick out exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted with wonderful suggestions and personalization. And the day of the wedding he was all smiles! I could tell that he was really invested in us and of our big day! He even helped to calm this nervous and giggly bride. :) And I love that he provided us with a beautiful copy of our ceremony as a keepsake, as well as a pretty wedding certificate keepsake. Huzzah!

And his wife and daughter are both beautiful and lovely as well. They were of course a pleasure to have with us.

I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

We unfortunately didnt give Reverend Cookson a whole lot of time to get things together. Although he pulled together a beautiful service that was the icing on the cake for our wedding. He and his wife were wonderful in their creativity and professionalism. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a wonderful job done.

Dear Nicole,

Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to share your experience. It was a pleasure working with you even if it was brief. Sometimes it is better that way as proven with you.
