Wonderful Words for our wedding
Pastor Garth was simply amazing. We met before the wedding to go over everything, and then on the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch! Pastor Garth was able to give a heartfelt ceremony without knowing us very well, and his words were perfect with our vows. Wonderful experience! Highly recommend!!!!Sent on 05/08/2020

Everything plus more!
Pastor Garth was the perfect choice. We had a Skype interview and discussed everything we were looking for. Our rehearsal was very thorough and he made sure we were comfortable before leaving. The ceremony was so beautiful. It was the perfect length of time, he included prayers and a communion for us and his words were so beautiful. Thank you Pastor Garth for making our day so memorableSent on 11/08/2019

Pastor Garth made our wedding very special! He was quick to respond to all communications throughout the process. Our ceremony was extremely well-organized and an excellent length (not too long or too short). He also did a great job of balancing out the sincere and entertaining aspects of the ceremony. He is an excellent speaker and his readings are beautiful. We were quite nervous before the ceremony but felt that he had a calming effect during the ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Lastly, his pricing was extremely reasonable compared to many of our other options and we are so happy we chose Garth.Sent on 18/10/2017
