Hello, My name is Reverend Joe and I am an Officiant. I perform weddings mainly in the tri-state area but have been known to travel a lot as well.
I am here to help you take the next step in your life with the one you love. I have been doing marriage ceremony's for several years now and have not received a bad review.
He accommodated us during this horrific pandemic time in a private ceremony since our actual wedding date had to be postponed because of the shut downs and quarantine and we are so appreciative! He is very nice, accommodating, dependable and reliable. Thank you Rev Joe!!
Every other officiant on this site gave me quotes of $422 &up When I explained the situation How We've been together 18+years but we've struggled to have the proper paperwork and money at the same time but then I got pregnant and we're homeless so we need a shelter before the baby comes Reverend Joe was the only one willing to charge a low enough amount so we can at least have our wedding before Eventho it didn't help us get placed at least our sweet little girl will have a happily married parents
Response from Reverend Joe:
Thanks for your review! It was my pleasure to perform your wedding. I am sorry you didn't get placed together but am glad that your son/daughter will have a chance to lead a happy and fulfilling life with two loving parents who are faithfully wedded in holy matrimony.
I also perform christenings and other religious ceremonies. If you require any additional services please feel free to contact me via this site and maybe we can work something out! In the meantime, enjoy and good luck!
Great experience! Thank you!

My Biography huh? Well, although I am a Reverend I am not a religious man. I am instead a spiritual man. That doesn't mean that I do not believe in the divine. It just means that I have a more personal relationship with it.
I was raised in a Roman Catholic family as a member of the Roman Catholic church. For various reasons I left the church at an early age. Soon thereafter I embarked on a spiritual journey which has allowed me many opportunities to learn about and experience many different forms of worship, spirituality and religious practices.
It was my exposure to many different beliefs throughout life that led me to become a Non Denominational Reverend. Being Non-Denominational allows me to be able to conform to the rules and rituals of many different religions without belonging to just one.
I am not prejudiced, homophobic or closed minded as some religious leaders tend to be. I am more than happy to perform same sex, transgender and/or biracial marriages so long as the law will allow me to do so. My purpose in life is to learn as much as I can about this great universe and all of the beautiful creatures who live in it. Not to judge and/or condemn others. Especially when all they desire is peace, love and happiness. It is my honor, privilege and pleasure to welcome all types of couples to my altar without judgement so long as they are 100% committed to one another.
