We wanted our event to reflect who we are as individuals and as a couple; where we have been and where we are today. We also wanted a bit of humor woven into the ceremony. Steve was great! We met over coffee to discuss our unique story. Steve captured the facts and wove them into a wonderful, fun, loving and touching ceremony. His delivery was perfect. We were delighted and so were our guests. We have already had friends request his contact information.

Steven officiated at our wedding last November (2014). He put us at ease from the very beginning, accommodating all of our concerns, and offering helpful advice whenever we asked. He conducted the ceremony with exactly the right combination of warmth, gravitas, and celebration.

We would recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking a dignified and beautiful civil ceremony.

Steve is absolutely the best! From the moment I met him, I knew he would be the perfect person to officiate our ceremony. Steve effortlessly guided us through the process of creating a ceremony that was a perfect mix of traditional and unique to us as a couple. He gave us many options of how to personalize our ceremony as well as many details/choices of ceremony components I hadn't even thought of! Steve was always prompt to return my emails and very willing to give us final say in all parts of our ceremony. On the day of our wedding, Steve was a wonderful combination of funny, well spoken, and heartfelt. Our ceremony guests could not stop complimenting our ceremony (and this is all because of Steve!)

My husband and I had an instant connection with Steve. He was very easy to talk to and made us feel very comfortable. My husband isn't very chatty, but he and Steve hit it off. I could barely get a word in during our first meeting. We aren't very traditional so I relied on Steve to give me a lot of options/ideas. I asked a lot of questions and emailed him all the time with random thoughts. His responses were always timely and forth right. Some nights we went back and forth several times. We had a great banter over email. He made it perfectly clear that the day was all about us and whatever we wanted. Nothing was off limits. In the end, we decided to skip the unity candle and presentation of roses, and do something completely different. As we got closer to our wedding date we had a few more face to face meetings. He really got to know us and our story, which made such a difference on our wedding day because he was really able to capture the attention of our guests. Steve has a great sense of humor and we wanted that incorporated into our ceremony. He had our guests laughing during the ceremony several times. So many people commented on how entertaining our ceremony was, not stuffy at all. I would definitely recommend Steve to any engaged couple looking for a memorable wedding day. Steve can do it all, whatever your preference is, and if you don't know what you want he can certainly help figure it out. FIVE STARS!!!

Our ceremony would not have been what it was without Steven acting as our officiant. The ceremony that he wrote for us could not have been any better. I would not have changed a single word about it. My family even left saying that they felt as if they had known him for years prior to that day though they had never met him.

I highly recommend Steven as an officiant!! We saw Steven perform our friends' wedding back in 2009; I loved how personal the ceremony was and how much everyone was laughing!! I knew when we chose to marry in NH that he would be an amazing officiant. Steven is hilarious and really takes the time to get to know you as a couple. He asked many questions about what we wanted for the ceremony, never assuming anything, and graciously worked in my changes to the ceremony script. He wants your day to be perfect, whatever that means for you. He likes to meet couples in person, but we live out of state and so he Skyped with us. At the rehearsal, he put everyone at ease with his confidence and jokes; on the wedding day we all smiled and laughed through the ceremony. He gave a lovely description about my husband and I met, detailing our story for our guests. He was worth every penny!

My Husband and I were looking for a unique individual to be the officiant for our wedding ceremony. Honestly, i know we picked the right guy. From the moment we met Steve we found him to be easy to get along with and really felt he could give us the unique and personal ceremony we wanted. Steve was not only helpful in terms of guiding us with ideas for a perfect ceremony, but he made our rehearsal a lot of fun and full of laughter. Steve really made our day special, and we're so thankful. We are still receiving compliments on how lovely our ceremony was!
