Reverend Blake Harcup

Email Blake Harcup

I am a native Floridian. I was born and raised in the wonderful city  of Sarasota, FL and come from a large family. I am the oldest of four siblings and most of my extended family have lived within a few miles radius my entire life. Growing up here in Sarasota was a great opportunity to be outside all of the time. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors and like to spend as much time outside as I can. I spent much of my childhood playing baseball and that has now morphed into golf. A pastor who plays golf, how rare!

I attended Liberty University and it was there that I started to date my wife. We were married in 2010 and it has been a spectacular journey. My wife and I stayed in Virginia for nearly 8 additional years and worked and continued school there. We now have three beautiful girls and are loving every minute of it!

It has been a such a blessing to be able to be a part of Sensational Ceremonies and to be a part of one the most important days of so many people’s lives. It has been a great joy to share in such a joyous day with so many others! If there’s anything I can do to help you put together your custom ceremony please do not hesitate to give me a call.

My name is Kathy Thomas I am a Notary Officiant and the member of the Tampa Team. I am a 2nd generation Florida native as well as a longtime resident of the Tampa Bay area.  I grew up in Pinellas and now I currently reside in Manatee county.  I love to fish and be outdoors.  My husband and I also enjoy traveling around our state and we are Disney lovers.

My journey to becoming an officiant began in 2013, when my now husband and I were married by a Sensational Ceremonies officiant.  Planning our wedding made me realize that I wanted to be part of weddings from the other side of the event. After obtaining my notary commission and praying about it I was lead back to Sensational Ceremonies but this time not as a bride. I love weddings and I enjoy seeing 2 people who love each other declare that love and commitment to each other.  I would love to be the one who helps you make your wedding day beautiful and provide you with a memorable ceremony.

Reverend Bill Cruz

Email Bill Cruz

Reverend Bill, as he is affectionately called, brings with him a wealth of experience and training as a minister, therapist, and actor.

As an Ordained Minister of the Gospel, Reverend Bill considers it an honor to officiate over what he believes is the strongest and most intimate relationship know to Man, i.e., the union between a man and a woman. The union of two precious lives, raised under different circumstances and situations, and now called to become one, ushers the couple to a myriad of rich and interesting adventures as they work together to build a home.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Reverend Bill brings into this marital event over 23 years of experience in what makes a marital relationship strong and long-lasting. His formal premarital sessions deal with exploring and examining the major issues that marital couples bring to his counseling sessions and how to deal with them more effectively before saying, “I do.” After the marriage ceremony, he has served as an on-going resource to the couple in building a healthier marital dyad for years to come.

As an actor of both film and television, Reverend Bill understands the importance of team work and using all of the resources available to make the marriage ceremony an event that will be remembered for a long time. His flexibility, openness and willingness to work with the couple in regards to the details of the ceremony results in making the marriage ceremony a treasured experience.

Reverend Bill has been married for three decades to his bride, Theresa. Together they have raised and nurtured three children. Reverend Bill and Theresa have been involved in ministry among the poor for years, helping and encouraging all to live lives of purpose as members of the community, filled with gratitude for what they have and what they can give.

Blessings, Reverend Bill
