It only happens once in a great while when someone comes into your life for a special event, and you can automatically tell it was meant to be. That is what happened when we met Stephen at Starbucks in Nashville, TN. Dressed to impress, Stephen walked in and immediately wanted to get to know the ins and outs of my wife ( Amanda ) and I's relationship. He began by asking the traditional questions about how we met and where we plan on going in our journey. By the time we had finished telling him our love story, his reaction said it all, you could tell he was attached. He told us how deeply moved he was by our story and promised us a ceremony we would never forget, and he did not lie in the slightest. Stephen worked with our hectic schedule to make sure that everything went as smooth as possible. During the rehearsal, we went step by step on how things would progress during the ceremony to make sure it was perfect. When it came time for the ceremony to start, Stephen began to speak the most beautiful words I have ever heard come from anyone. This was no ordinary speech, this was not a speech coming from someone who was just looking for a paycheck. No, these were the words coming from an honest man who had invested his time into two people and their love for one another, focusing on every little detail they had mentioned to him when telling him their story. The words were perfect, said with sincerity and mixed in with a little humor, Stephen had portrayed our life and our love without missing a single detail. Not only did he deliver it with power and compassion, he delivered it with a message to everyone there, to appreciate every moment we are given. I would recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking for more than just an Officiant because he is more than just that. He is an honest, caring, loving and genuine human being. In other words, you are getting much more than a great Officiant, you are going to receive a lifelong friend. Thank you, Stephen!
Stephen, your words were so beautiful. We knew the minute we started talking with you at Starbucks that you were meant to be a part of our wedding. The way you wrote our ceremony couldn't have been more perfect Thank you for making our big day one we will remember and cherish for the rest of our lives.
We couldn't have asked for a better, more caring and professional officiant than Stephen. He was like family and very attentive throughout the entire process. He took the time to get to know my fiancé and I and learn about our love story so he could put together the perfect ceremony. We are forever grateful for the beautiful service and friendship we made with Stephen!
Never have I experienced faster response time from somebody. If every vendor/supplier could be like this... If you choose Stephen you will rest assured that he will be there, be on time, and CARE about your day. We eloped and in only meeting him for 30 min, made us feel like we had made a friend. You've got a winner here, folks!
It was such a pleasure meeting you and having you as our officiant. Chris and I had a unique experience and you were more than accommodating! As you know, the "great snow of 1/16/2018, almost stopped the show! But you were gracious enough to allow Chris, myself, and our photographer the opportunity to trek up your snowy, icy hill and get hitched! You were a trooper in 14 degrees of snow and cold air! The vows were beautifully created and made our day extra special. We thank you so much - and have repeated this story all week!!
You put so much in to each individual ceremony. That's what sets you apart!
We appreciate you making our day so special!
You are the best at what you do, Stephen. You have, to me, the most important part of the day and you made our day so special and memorable.
When we renew our vows one day on a mountain top we only could hope you will be there.
Stephen went above and beyond for us in the moments before, during, and after our wedding day. He met with us months before the wedding to get to know my husband and me personally as well as to learn the specifics of our love story. He made us feel as if we had known him for years instead of knowing him for less than 24 hours. On our big day, Stephen was extremely early and helped guide the entire ceremony since we opted to not have a full rehearsal the night before. The words he chose for our ceremony were beautiful and true to who we are as a couple. My husband and I would truly recommend him to anyone, and we have received numerous comments about how personable and inviting he was before and during the ceremony itself. We can't sing his praises enough. You can't go wrong with choosing Stephen to officiate your wedding!
Stephen Seymour was our officiant on 8/12/17 and he couldn't have done a better job! We were married in Nashville, but currently live in Illinois. Stephen worked around our schedule to meet with us when we were visiting, and took time to get to know us as a couple. He was quick to respond throughout the planning process whenever I had a question, and was so easy to work with. The ceremony fit us perfectly and everyone complimented us on how good a job he did. I would highly recommend Stephen, he is amazing and so much fun!!
