Stephen Ongo was a fantastic officiant. He was very open to our non-religious ceremony with a non-conventional twist (tree planting ceremony). He was very kind and always responded to questions immediately. I would highly recommend him as an officiant.

Thankyou Reverend Ongo for your top notch excellent services that helped Brad and myself every step of the marriage process. I was filled with trepidation coming from a family of 2 divorced parents wasn't too sure what lied ahead for us.

You basically took our hands and lead us every step of the way.I feel we can even come back to you after we have our first born. We want you to dedicate and do his or her marriage also. We feel you are a friend as well as our Minister.

Love Reverend Stephen Ongo's light hearted approach had my friends and family in stitches. It is so good to bring a little humour that is apprpriate and timely.

If you feel the same way we did and wanted everyone to have a fun time starting with the ceremony chose Your Special Day Wedding Services ask for Reverend Stephen Ongo even though his other Officiants are probably quite capable also.

Reverend Ongo for Renewed our Vows of 50 years. He made it so fun and everyone said you were so humorous. You said some wonderful things about Ted and myself and I am sure you saw the tears in both our eyes. My daughter and her husband commented after you left that we picked the right man for our ceremony and they too will be reffering people they know who need your services. We can't thank him enough for making our day so wonderful
