Rev. Tim was amazing! My husband and I planned our wedding in our hometown, and we live 3 states away. Rev. Tim sat down and discussed what we wanted with us while we were in town for a week to complete our planning. He was great--very personable and easy to talk to! We worked with him via e-mail and phone to finalize the details, which made our lives easy. Although he performs many ceremonies, he always remembered who we are when we spoke (either by phone or e-mail). Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful! Our guests commented about how lovely the ceremony was. Many of our guests were also impressed with Rev. Tim for using an iPad for his ceremony notes--one guest even tweeted about how cool that was. We were absolutely thrilled with Rev. Tim and highly recommend him!
Tim and his wife made our wedding very special. Not only were they very professional, but they made the wedding fun and stress free!!

Rev. Melissa was absolutely amazing. I had such a stressful weekend before the wedding and when Melissa arrived she took away all my worries, fears, and stress. She took control of the ceremony and made sure everything went smoothly. She made personal touches to the ceremony that was so beautiful. When a situation arose she knew just what to do and made sure I continued smiling through it all. It didn't matter what was needed on that day she was there, she help setup and help pin up mine and my flower girls dress. From the planning days all the way through the reception Melissa was more than my officiant, she was our friend. I couldn't have asked for a better person to be there to officiating my wedding and be my friend. Thank-you so much Melissa!
Wow! I can't begin to say enough about Melissa. She was great! Thank you Thank you Thank you. She was available to help me with anything I needed. She helped me proof my programs to make sure I hit every point. It isn't everyday you write up a wedding program. I asked if she would "take control" at the rehearsal so I wouldn't have to, and she did. She did such a wonderful job. The day of the ceremony she made sure I was ready to go, and checked on the groom. She made sure we were coordinated appropriate on the time. The ceremony itself was great. We were able to pick out our vows ahead of time and they were exactly what I wanted. She was just wonderful and I would highly recommend Melissa. Their ratings really speak for themselves! Thanks!
Reverend Tim Brooks deserves a higher rating than 5. He is the quintessential professional. My fiancée and I were initially worried about who would be our officiant because our pastor could not join us together as husband and wife since we were getting married on a Sunday. We were referred to Tim and were initially concerned because we did want a reverend we knew to perform our marriage ceremony.
At the end of the day, our initial apprehensions did not matter. He graciously welcomed us into his home where we were able to introduce ourselves a few weeks before the ceremony. On our wedding day, he briefly met with Andrea and I a few minutes before the ceremony, calming us down and telling us that everything would be alright. The ceremony went very well. We had an outdoor wedding, and I (the groom) was really hot and started to sweat. He politely took out a handkerchief for me to use.
Although this is an overused cliché, words cannot express how satisfied my wife and I are to have had Tim as our officiant. I’ve written only a handful of reviews, and only do so when I am passionate about a particular service or product. Any future husband and wife will be so lucky to have Reverend Tim Brooks as your officiant. He is kind, patient, and realizes what the ceremony means not only for the bride and groom, but their family and friends. My full name is very hard and complicated to pronounce, and he took the time to nail my Nigerian name. My parents were very pleased. We can only hope that you take this review into consideration when considering who will join you into this world as one union. You will be blessed if you chose Tim.
