Working with Pastor Chris was a great experience. He was extremely professional the day of the wedding, and even took the time to meet with us on several occasions to answer our questions prior to our big day. We were extremely blessed to have Pastor Chris for our wedding ceremony and we would recommend his services to any couple contemplating hiring sensational ceremonies for their wedding. Again Pastor Chris thank you so much for all you have done for us!

Highly recommend Rev Rick
Reverend Rick Lackore served as the officiant at our wedding. He came recommended to me by my photographer as being “the best of the best.” I most certainly agree. He did a wonderful job of making sure he went over every single detail for the most important part of our day. He was always quick to reply to any questions I had, he made the ceremony feel very personal, and he was a calming presence when we were filled with nervousness. During the rehearsal, he really made sure that we were comfortable and confident in what we had to do. He reminded us that if we stumble or forget anything at all, he would be there to remind us or repeat what we needed to do away from the microphone so it would be as unnoticeable as possible. Another thing that meant a lot was that he stepped out of the way for important photos such as our first kiss as husband and wife. He is a true professional, but he also makes sure every aspect of the day is personal for you. Everyone loved Rev. Rick at the wedding and we couldn’t have asked for more! I highly recommend him to make your day extra special.
We had Rev Rick as our officiant. He went above and beyond what we wanted in our ceremony. We had just my husband and I and that's exactly what we wanted. He made it feel so special for us. Thank you!
Our amazing wedding ceremony
What an amazing officiant/person Rev Joy Blessing is. Her name says it all she is indeed a blessing. She took all my ideas and turned them into a magical experience. Not only did she know how to perform a spiritual hand fastening but she just knew how to make everything perfect. She kept a smile on my face not only through the whole ceremony but through the reception as well. I would highly recommend Rev. Joy Blessing and again what a blessing she is!
Thank you, Chris Thomas!
Pastor Chris Thomas was absolutely wonderful to work with!! He was professional, outgoing, well-spoken, respectful, knowledgeable, and absolutely hilarious, making the process behind creating our wedding ceremony words so much more fun and easy! He extended beyond his duties of just being our officiant by taking the time to visit with us and get to know us on a personal level, which was something extremely important to us, given his role in bringing us together as one. My husband and I are not religious, we're more spiritual, and one of our biggest concerns was if we could find someone who would be okay with those circumstances; Chris completely understood and respected our wishes to keep religion out of our ceremony and made us feel entirely comfortable doing so. He spoke clearly and rendered our words in a way that showed his interest and care for our coming together; he truly made our day so special!!
Lisette Barteau is the best wedding officiant!
Our wedding day went perfectly thanks to Lisette Barteau (our wedding officiant). Lisette was so warm & personable and performed a wonderful ceremony. Lisette`s delivery of vows to us was beautiful and meaningful. Thank you Lisette!!
I spoke to Lisette Barteau prior to our wedding and I asked her for a small, private and bilingual ceremony that felt personal and meaningful. Lisette did a wonderful job stress free and in line with what my fiancé and I wanted. We couldn't have asked for more and would recommend her to any couple.
Thank you Rev. Rick!
From the moment I first spoke to Rev. Rick Lackore, I knew that we had the perfect officiant!
As a destination couple (we are from Scotland and got married on Clearwater Beach, it meant so much to us how helpful Rev. Rick was, and how much guidance he provided us. He really went over and above what we expected, and was able to tailor make a ceremony for us. We were worried when we first started our wedding journey, that we would be given a 'one size fits all' experience, but this couldn't be further from the truth.
Rev. Rick really took an interest in us as a couple, and truly supported us from the very beginning. It also goes without saying that everything went perfectly on our big day.
Thank you Rev. Rick, we are so grateful for everything, and will be in touch when we are next in FL (hopefully soon!!).

It was perfect!
Pastor Chris Thomas was outstanding! We talked to a few officiants before making a decision and as soon as we spoke to Chris, we knew he was the perfect officiant for our special day! Chris communicated through out the whole process up until our special day and customized the service to be exactly what we wanted. He was extremely responsive and accommodating. Even though we hadn’t met Chris in person prior to our ceremony, the instant we met him it felt as though we had known him for a long time. He made us feel comfortable and also has a great sense of humor. If you are in need of someone to officiate, definitely talk with Chris, he is truly awesome!

Rev. Rick Lackore
Rev. Rick was given to us as a recommendation by our wedding venue, and we are so pleased that he was. From the beginning to the end, he was a delight to work with. He provided great communication with both my husband and myself, and made the process as smooth and easy as I had hoped it would be. Being that my husband and I are from Michigan, we were not able to actually meet with him, and had all of our concerns answered through e-mail or phone, which was no issue, because he was prompt in answering our requests and easing our worries, despite the miles between us. The day of our wedding we were so happy to meet him when he greeted us individually before the ceremony. He walked us through the ceremony (again, separately) so that we would be prepared, and made us feel comfortable and ready for the impending nuptials. It was easier than we expected it to be, and all because of the great service Rev. Rick provided us. We couldn’t be happier with our choice, and would recommend him to anyone.
We are very thankful to have had Father Richard and his wife, Dr. Sara, share our wedding day with us. He performed a beautiful and personal ceremony, and did a lovely job of guiding us through the preparations too. It was a joy to have them join us for dinner afterwards too!
