My wedding was on Aug 2008 and he was horrible!! First off, he arrived 5 minutes before the ceremony began. Then when he read our vows, I couldn't believe he didn't even read what I wrote! He read the template of vows he had sent me without the changes I had made! He even sent me an email the night before the wedding indicating he received the vows I had written and he said he would arrive 30 minutes before the ceremony. When met a few months prior, he claimed he always arrives early and can help to set up. Beg to differ! After he came late on my wedding day, he didn't even apologize and rudely helped himself to the hor d'oeurvres after the ceremony and just hung around the food and guests. I agree, he's very opinionated and is not open to other people's ideas/opinions. Find another officiant/minister!!!!
