Pastor John Crawford was wonderful to work with and had we had a very lovely and moving ceremony as a result. Pastor John was also very accomodating when I moved up my wedding date by 8 months. I would recommend Pastor John to anyone!

Outstanding! Kind, professional, helpful, and organized

Pastor John did an amazing job! After our first meeting, we knew right away we wanted to work with him -- he is so kind and professional, and we were both choking up just listening to the script options! It made a huge difference to have a customized ceremony rather than a legal-sounding one. It also meant a lot to us that he worked to achieve the perfect tone for our mixed-faith families (at our request, he included a short blessing/prayer but did not have the 'giving away' language or any scripture readings).

His pricing is extremely reasonable considering the level of service you get. He has a backup pastor ready to go, ran a perfect rehearsal ceremony and set our nerves at ease, and even gave us instructions on getting the marriage license, tips on how to write the vows, etc. It was a huge help not to have to do that research on our own. On the day of he was a total pro as well, stepping out of the photo frame for important moments (like vow-readings and each kiss) + reminding us how to stand so that we would look best in photos. We can't recommend Pastor John enough!

Great Experience

We are lucky and so happy we found Pastor John as our officiant. He’s good and very sweet. He also made it very easy for me during rehearsals. Much much more affordable too compared to other officiants. Highly recommend!

Amazing Officiant

John was amazing to work with. He was extremely kind, caring, and professional. We could tell that he had done lots of other weddings, as he knew exactly what he was doing. He made us feel very comfortable in our initial meeting with him, and again at the rehearsal dinner. He was the perfect person to marry us- so happy we went with John!

Great Officiant!

Pastor John was the perfect officiant for us. He listened to what we wanted and provided advice and guidance. He provided us with a non-denominational wedding ceremony as we are different religions. He included our family and added humor to the service. He was great at the rehearsal as well, helping everyone understand what to do the day of, especially our ring bearer and flower girl. Thank you Pastor John for making our wedding so special!

Amazing Experience

We are so happy we chose Pastor John to be our officiant. We was the perfect fit for us and was so great to work with. We took the marriage preperation course with him through Prepare Enrich and we are so glad we did! We learned lots of skills in communication etc and the course was fun! The wedding day itself was perfect, everything we could have hoped for and more. We had a Christian ceremony and Pastor John prepared the most beautiful service. We would highly recommend him to anyone

We made the right choice!

John Crawford is amazing. He walked us through everything ahead of time, helped to calm my nerves before the wedding as I waited for my bride, ran the ceremony as perfectly as it could have been done. I can't imagine that there is an officiant out there who could have been more perfect. Thank you Pastor Crawford!

Made our day magical

Can't thank John enough for the beautiful ceremony he conducted for our Covid19 elopement. He was extremely flexible with all the venue changes due to venue cancellations and park closures; nothing was a problem for him. We felt so at ease throughout the ceremony and the planning process. Thank you so much!!
