“Brad and I received so many compliments on how touching and personal our wedding ceremony was. Apparently, we made several friends and family members cry with joy as we made our pledges to each other. The wedding ceremony Andy wrote was customized to our personalities, and incorporated precious things Brad and I said about each other. It really meant so much to us to have such an honest, loving and personal ceremony on our wedding day. Our families are very important to us both, and we love our friends as dearly as we love our family. Andy’s ceremony made everyone at our wedding feel like they were a part of our family. 

Our wedding ceremony was so perfect, I couldn’t think to change a thing! I have to admit, I didn’t know what to expect, but everything you said was perfect! Our family and friends were dying to know how we found you. I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone I know who’s tying the knot!”

“You need only meet Andy to like him. If you’re looking for someone to marry you who is warm, caring, thoughtful, genuine — and in such a way that you know it immediately upon first shaking his hand — Pastor Andy is your man. He took the time to get to know us and beautifully blended his knowledge of ceremony and tradition with a focus that was all about us. Andy took our words and wove them into a ceremony that told our story, reflected on what brought us together, shared what we love about one another and why we were marrying, and intimated what made our unity special and unique. Beyond that, Andy also brought a true sense of comfort and calm to our ceremony. During our reception and in the weeks following our wedding, we have heard from so many friends and loved ones that our ceremony was the most moving and intimate that they have ever experienced. That warms our hearts to hear. But the true testament to the gift that Andy gave us — above all else — is that that’s exactly how my wife and I feel. Andy made our ceremony. And for us, we know it’s a springboard for so many wonderful things to come in a lifetime of happiness, learning and adventure. Would we recommend Pastor Andy? Absolutely. In fact, we’ve already sent a couple his way and we will do so again, and again, and again. Thank you so much, Andy.”
