    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 memorable

    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.

    We had Garth officiate our wedding in June. He did an amazing job in performing our ceremony and all of our guests enjoyed his readings. He had a good balance of solemnity, with a few jokes here and there. He made us both feel very calm and relaxed and was also well prepared as he had a spare pen when we had forgotten ours! When emailing him, Garth was very punctual in his emails and with his communication with us. We would highly recommend Garth as we feel he was reasonably priced compared to many other officiants and he truly enjoys what he does, which really comes across in his ceremonies.
