“Griff was amazing, very organized and kept the whole bridal party in good spirits during the ceremony.  He likes to add a small amount of humor into the ceremony.  My father had passed away about 3 months prior to the wedding, and though it could have been a very sad time for my family he gave recognition to what a special person my dad was to everyone, especially my family and I without bringing down the day.  When we met with Griff, we knew instantly he was the officiant for us.  He kept us smiling throughout the meeting.  I would recommend Griff to anyone!”


“Griff was great!  Helped us write our vows and made our ceremony simply wonderful.  He had us stand so the photos were great, too!”
Keith & Cindy W.

“My husband is Buddhist and I am Lutheran.  We were worried about our parents’ reactions to our ceremony.  Griff did a great job of designing a ritual that spoke to both our backgrounds and included everyone.  Our parents loved it!
… and so did we!”

“We had some ‘Family Politics’ to worry about… divorces, bad feelings between parents, step parents who are important to us.  Mr. Griffen helped us sort it all out and found ways to involve everyone without hurting feelings.  His innovations saved the day, as far as I am concerned.”
Rhonda D.

“We couldn’t have been happier!  He was so sincere and has a great sense of humor.  I was very nervous and he got me to relax.  Our wedding was perfect!”
John & Julie R.

“He helped us plan our whole day, not just the ceremony.  We avoided some big problems thanks to him, and the day was trouble-free.”
Mary & Drew J.
