Our minister was an incredibly positive and inspirational influence during a very exciting and stressful time in our lives. I would highly recommend ministers in a minute to any couple looking for an officiant who will develop a connection with you and bring joy and positive spiritual energy to your wedding.

My husband and I were devastated when our original officiant canceled a week prior to our wedding. In search of a replacement, Ministers in a Minute came highly recommended by two of our vendors. Within very short notice, our minister quickly relieved our stress and put our mind at ease. He was genuine and professional the entire time. He was full of positive energy and high spirits. We really enjoyed the ceremony and how unique it was to our personality and spiritual level. We also received many compliments from our guests. Without a doubt, Ministers in a Minute was a main factor in making our day special.

Ministers in a Minute is the perfect officiant for the modern couple who is not looking for a stuffy church wedding. I kind of feel bad saying that, but we are both non-denominational, although our parents are catholic and protestant. Regardless, everyone loved our ceremony. Our minister added just the right mix of traditional religion and modern-day ceremonial items for us. We couldn't have imagined a more personal, fun, ceremony for our special day!

Father Ken is great to work with! He responded quickly to emails and his personality is so sweet and caring. He did a great job with our ceremony. I had so many compliments about his delivery and the way he spoke, it was as if he knew us for so many years. He is absolutely great with people and makes you feel so great on your wedding day! He is definitely a stress free vendor! He has the perfect personality for what he does.

Ministers in a Minute is fantastic! Even when I changed the ceremony at literally the last minute - they accepted what I wanted and made the adjustments and the ceremony still appeared seamless. Our minister was friendly and compassionate. We enjoyed working with Ministers in a Minute and I gladly recommend them.

Brother Paul was amazing! Multiple wedding guests came up to my husband and I during the reception saying our wedding ceremony was the best they had ever been a part of. Lots of them even thought we had known Brother Paul for a long time, too! My husband and I especially appreciated his great ideas and friendly, accommodating personality. He made our wedding ceremony very, very special and unique. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a personalized, fun, and meaningful ceremony.

Ministers in a Minute is wonderful! I absolutely know that my husband and I couldn't have picked anyone better to marry us. Our minister did exactly what my husband and I had wanted, and I had so many of our guests comment on what a wonderful job they did. I would recommend Ministers in a Minute to anyone, and when my husband and I renew our vows, you can bet we'll call MiM.

Our minister was outstanding. The ministers in a minute ceremony was exactly what we wanted and received a lot of compliments, and fit us perfectly. Our minister was very professional, friendly, and flexible throughout the process. Moreover, he arrived on the wedding day with a sense of calmness, direction, and leadership - which was exactly what we needed on our hectic wedding day.

Many thanks again, Ministers in a Minute, for making our special day one to truly remember. I was so nervous that I was going to be a blubbering mess. However, our minister's calming presence aided me in keeping it all together! God Bless you and your company always!

Brother Paul was wonderful. If you can imagine your best officiant and then multiply that by 10, that would be Brother Paul. He was very easy to talk to, flexible in allowing us to choose how we wanted our ceremony to take place and then also provided a great deal of support and help on the day of the wedding to make sure it was a success. Paul is not only a professional, he is immediately someone you feel close to and makes you feel totally at ease. We heard so many compliments about him and our ceremony. We were thrilled!

Ministers in a Minute was perfect for our wedding! We had contacted them after a friend of ours canceled. We had two weeks to find an Officiant. We contacted Ministers in a Minute and even with the short notice, they were able to prepare a ceremony that was well thought out and flowed beautifully!
- Rated 5 stars by Susan Bennis
Father Ken was a great officiant and made our ceremony just the way we envisioned it. He was extremely flexible and was a pleasure to work with. All our guests commented on how beautiful our ceremony was, and we owe much of our success to him. Thanks for making our wedding so great!

Ministers in a Minute created a picture perfect ceremony for my husband and I. We knew as soon as we spoke to Brother Jimmy that he was the officiant for us. We were married only 3 months after our engagement and Brother Jimmy worked wonderfully around our busy planning schedule. He created an atmosphere that wowed all of our guests. His expertise shines through his work and his friendly personality is very easing to the hectic feeling of wedding planning.

In a world of wedding vendors that typically do not respond promptly to couples planning their wedding, Ministers in a Minute is a complete exception with their responsiveness, organization and helpfulness! We were lucky enough to find them online, and have them officiate our wedding day. We felt assured and confident planning our destination nuptials as soon as we hired them. Everything seems to fall in place with Ministers in a Minute on your team!

Rev. Billy Oyler couldn't have made us feel more special on our big day! He was so nice, personable and professional. He paid attention to every detail. We couldn't be happier with his service and we are so pleased that he was the one to marry us! We would highly recommend "Ministers in a Minute" to anyone that wants the feeling of a "friend" marrying you, not just another "officiant". We wouldn't have changed a thing.
- Rated 5 stars by Mary Louise Bringham
We had a flawless, exceptional wedding experience with Ministers in a Minute. They made the process simple and worry free. We are extremely pleased that we chose Ministers in a Minute to officiate our ceremony. They really are (in our humble opinion) The GREATEST wedding service in the South, and we would highly recommend their services.

My husband and I were blown away and amazed with Brother Paul and Ministers in a Minute... We couldn't of asked for a better officiant. From the day that I first talked to Brother Paul I knew that everything would be perfect for our big day! Anytime I had questions I would call or e-mail and usually within minutes I had a response! What a relief to have somebody's full attention especially with all the planning and stress that a wedding could have brought. Really impressed with the amount of thought and work he gave, until the day was complete. I would pay twice what I paid just for the comfort of having Ministers in a Minute a part of my wedding planning!

I would like to write a special thank you to Father Ken. Mike & I want to thank you for making our wedding day the most special day ever. I cannot tell you how many positive comments we received from family & friends about how special and loving the ceremony was. You surprised us both (in a very good way) when you mentioned our first date at Red Lobster and when you mentioned our loved ones who have passed, we were both about to loose it (also, in a very good way). Your professionalism and kind heart made us seem like you've known us for many many years. If anyone is considering Ministers in a Minute, we can both guarantee you that your wedding day will be one to remember forever and ever! Thank you again.

We were recently married in Eads, TN and Father Ken made our wedding ceremony so incredibly personal, unique, and unforgettable. Many of our guests still remember what was said at the ceremony which is rare! The most important thing to us was to have a ceremony that was personal, touching and expressed the way we felt about each other and our relationship. Throughout the planning process he became a great friend and we couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us. If I could do it all over again, I would have Father Ken marry us again! (And we will, when it comes time to renew our vows.) We really have loved working with Ministers in a Minute every step of the way and are so blessed and happy to have someone like Father Ken as our officiant and most importantly our friend. I would recommend Ministers in a Minute to anyone that wants a ceremony that will be touching, unique, and unforgettable. They really are the best.

We cannot imagine our wedding ceremony without the talent, spark, and warmth of Father Ken. With the added stress of planning an out of town wedding (we live in LA and had our wedding in Germantown), Father Ken's professionalism, knowledge, and dedication were exactly what we needed. We took on the struggle of writing our own vows and Father Ken, like a brilliant editor, helped us shape what we had written into a ceremony that was imaginative, moving, fun, and uniquely us. Ministers in a Minute's passion for what they do is an inspiration and we feel incredibly lucky to have had them as a part of our celebration!

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the services provided by Ministers in a Minute; particularly since we were planning our wedding from the other side of the country. They provided all the information we needed from possible vows to helping us navigate the legal end of things with the wedding license. It was also extremely encouraging to know that they had worked extensively with our other vendors and even helped us select a phenomenal wedding planner! They truly made planning an out of town wedding a seemless and painless experience! We were thrilled with everything!

Ministers in a Minute was on-time (early!), Friendly (both families loved our minister!), respectful (two different belief systems), organized (helped direct/produce a great wedding!) and flexible! Originally, I wanted a judge but after everyone kept talking about Ministers in a Minute, I hired them, and they were so respectful of my beliefs. I really enjoyed our minister; he really helped make the ceremony smooth! He instructed the wedding party with a great practice of the ceremony events, he had great suggestions for readings and vows, and he was so friendly and patience he really added to making me feel great on my special day!

Father Ken was completely amazing through our entire wedding! We couldn't have asked for someone more compassionate, sincere and caring! We had so many compliments from our guests on how personalized the ceremony was. I would absolutely recommend Ministers in a Minute to all my family and friends. They made our day so very special!

We had a truly great experience with Ministers in a Minute. From the very beginning the response, confirmation and details were all handled in a professional manner. Father Ken arrived early and introduced himself and talked with us. He then performed a beautiful ceremony exactly as we wanted it to be! We will long remember our wedding ceremony for years to come! It was touching and sweet according to family and friends.

Brother Jimmy was absolutely marvelous throughout the whole process of our wedding. We needed to find an officiant 3 weeks before our wedding. Ministers in a Minute came to our rescue and was brilliant from the very first phone call. They took the time to listen to what we wanted and to get to know our personalities. They fully prepared us for everything we needed to know and do. Brother Jimmy performed our ceremony with exceptional elegance, spoke eloquently and articulately and seemed to truly share our joy with great sincerity. It is plain to see that Brother Jimmy loves what he does and gives all she has to make your day beautiful. So many people told us our wedding was one of the best they've ever attended and everyone agreed Ministers in a Minute was outstanding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we will never forget you and our perfect wedding.

Billy was amazing! From the moment we met with him, he was helpful and responsive. He has a great voice and is such a wonderful person to share such an important day with. We had numerous comments on how wonderful our ceremony was and how nice Billy was! We were able to personalize our ceremony which was a huge plus. My family loved him. He was gracious and helpful and offered to assist us in any way he could. Plus, his smile is contagious!

Father Ken was my officiant for my wedding and I couldn't have been more satisfied. He was very warm and so friendly and really made me feel at ease. My husband is from a Hispanic background and had trouble pronouncing some of the vows. Father Ken was great and modified our vows so that my husband was more comfortable saying them during the ceremony. I would definitely recommend Ministers in a Minute to anyone wishing to get married. You have enough stress as it is planning your big day and having an officiant who is so organized and efficient will make things so much easier.

We had Brother Paul as the officiant at our daughter's wedding. He was very professional and easy to get along with. The ceremony was very personal and delivered with perfection. Our guests loved the ceremony and we got a lot of rave reviews. Thank you, Ministers in a Minute for being a part of our only daughter's special day.

We had the most memorable and amazing experience with Ministers in a Minute. Our minister was a caring, calming, genuine person and was an absolute pleasure to work with. He had such a unique and beautiful way with words. He performed a wonderful wedding ceremony for us- one that captured our love and relationship perfectly. I truly cannot say enough kind words about him. I was amazed by all the wonderful feedback we got from our friends and family regarding the ceremony- they were so moved. Everyone kept saying that it was hands down the best ceremony they had ever been a part of. I highly, highly recommend Ministers in a Minute to everyone and anyone. They were so much a special part of our wedding day success, and we will never forget it or this great service!

Father Ken officiated our home wedding. We found him on the internet and were so impressed with his website, we contacted him about performing our wedding. He was wonderful! We could not have asked for a better minister. He added humor when we needed it, comforting when we were nervous, and most importantly he followed our instructions/desires. We loved him and will recommend Ministers in a Minute to all our friends.

We had Brother Paul officiate our wedding and he was amazing! He is so flexible and professional he just wants the couple to be happy. He was organized and on top of things and when it came to the wedding it went off with out a hitch. He is so great because he knows what he is doing and he does a great job! He walked us through the whole wedding in detail and made us feel so comfortable. I am so very pleased with him and he really made our wedding special! I will for sure recommend Ministers in a Minute to others!

As you can probably tell by all the reviews, Ministers in a Minute is an excellent choice if you are looking for an Officiant. For our wedding, we used Paul, and he was GREAT! All our guests commented on how great the ceremony was with Paul as the Officiant. Obviously, the ceremony sets the stage for the rest of the evening, so you want to go with someone that will get everything off to a good start. Ministers in a Minute will do that for you.

Ministers in a Minute is the best! My daughter and new son-in-law found Ministers in a Minute, and I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about finding a minister online but he did an awesome job. Everyone was so complimentary. Dr. Owens provided the right blend on intimacy and humor to the tone of the wedding and made it seem like we had been family friends for years.
- Rated 5 stars by Joyce Arnett
We hired Ministers in a Minute to officiate our wedding, Father Ken being the one who actually performed our ceremony. It was perfect. He answered every question I had, no matter how small. The ceremony was exactly what we had pictured and he made everything so easy that everything just fell into place. I would highly recommend them. I got many, many compliments about how fantastic the ceremony was. We have also been to 3 weddings with officiants from Ministers in a Minute, and have loved every one.

Father Ken was incredible. From the moment we first spoke to him on the phone until we were signing our marriage license he was kind, funny and brought EXACTLY what we were looking for in our service.
- Rated 5 stars by Kenny Hawkins
Five words... HIRE Ministers in a Minute! They are worth every penny and MORE, I seriously would have paid double! Everyone that attended the wedding said it was by far the best ceremony they had ever been to, not to short, not too long and everyone learned something about me and my wife. I am Christian and my wife is a non-believer, Father Ken mixed both beliefs in a way that made it extra special but the personal touches were beautiful! You will not be disappointed if you hire Ministers in a Minute, They are WONDERFUL and he will make your wedding ceremony unforgettable.

I received so many complements on our ceremony. Guests loved the informal way Father Ken conducted the service. It really made the ceremony feel personal. He had us laughing one second and crying the next. It set the perfect tone for the rest of the wedding.

Father Ken made our wedding ceremony a success! Even our guests complimented us on choosing him! He is very experienced and professional, as well as entertaining, witty, creative, and a great public speaker. He has plenty of advice and useful tips for before, during - and after - the wedding. He is flexible, which was key for us, since we planned our intimate ceremony in our backyard in the last minute... and he helped with every detail. The ceremony was just what we were looking for. It was truly enjoyable for everyone. We highly recommend him.

My wife and I were extremely grateful that we chose Ministers in a Minute. We could not have asked for anyone better. Our minister set the perfect tone for our ceremony. I had many guests compliment how laid back and fun our ceremony was and I credit that to Ministers in a Minute, for understanding us as a couple. Thank you guys for making our wedding ceremony everything we wanted.

Ministers in a Minute was everything we were looking for in wedding ministers: friendly, flexible, and low maintenance! They provided us with information to customize our ceremony as much as we liked, was a pleasure to have coordinating the rehearsal, and officiated our wedding joyfully. They were so easy to work with!

Dr. Owens was the officiant for our wedding and was wonderful! Our ceremony was small and intimate - just the two of us - and he made it so incredibly personal and special for us. It was exactly what we were looking for. I am in the wedding industry and have high expectations for my vendors and he exceeded all of them. I would highly recommend Ministers in a Minute.

You’d have thought we knew Father Ken for years the way he handled the ceremony with such enthusiasm and joy for our marriage. He spoke so eloquently and articulately. His words felt beautiful and had so much meaning. Ministers in a Minute far exceeded our expectations, and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a minister for their wedding.

When the Mother of the Groom who was also the wedding planner, florist and caterer had an emotional meltdown when things got off schedule, our Minister was patient, kind and understanding. He kept the Bride and Groom calm as well as their young children and performed a beautiful ceremony. Thanks for making the day perfect.

Ministers in a Minute was a great & easy service to utilize. Their website is VERY helpful in planning a wedding and helps to answer a lot of questions at the same time. They even helped me find my venue. My wedding day was easy and stress free and they provided a perfect ceremony.

Steve and I decided we wanted to be married in a bowling center and we knew we would need a special person to perform the ceremony, someone with a great sense of fun and yet a genuine man of the cloth, capable of mixing the celebration of our love with the sanctity of the vows we were about the share. We read the reviews of several officiants and decided to contact Ministers in a Minute. From the first contact, we knew he would be the one. He was onboard with the bowling center and understood our desires for the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect, as if Father Ken had been our pastor forever; he was the perfect mixture of playful and solemn. Our friends asked how long we had known him and were surprised to learn we had just met him. We cannot say enough good things about Ministers in a Minute!

What a great wedding; thanks in no small part to the staff of Ministers in a Minute. We didn’t think that who we chose to conduct our service would make much of a difference. Neither my husband nor I are very religious, but it was important to us to have GOD in our ceremony. We spoke to several wedding services over the phone, but none had the charisma, and professionalism that Ministers in a Minute had. Trying to save a little money on our wedding, and at the recommendation of a friend, we chose a different minister service. We had an opportunity to see our officiant in action, at a my friend’s wedding ceremony. To say we were disappointed would be a grand understatement. She had no flow to the ceremony, and the people where we sat couldn’t even hear her. She left the service without even filling out the marriage license. Raymond and I knew that we wanted much more for our own service. We once again contacted Ministers in a Minute, and truthfully explained our situation. Father Ken was very gracious, and understanding, and stepped right in to handle our wedding personally. There are other services out there, but even my friend who used the other officiant commented on how she wished she had used Ministers in a Minute. Thank you Father Ken and staff, for the invaluable service your provide to engaged couples. We’ll recommend you to all of our friends tying the knot.

My wife and I loved Ministers in a Minute. We used Father Ken, and he made our celebration perfect in every way. We had originally booked a different service, only to discover it was run by phony ministers. What a huge mess that would have been. We are so glad we could trust Ministers in a Minute. Thanks again.

Absolutely Perfect! Could not have asked for anything more. Father Ken conducted our ceremony, and it went over exactly as we would have hoped. He was very proactive in the days before the service to ensure that everything was in set, and that all we needed to do was to show up and say “I do.” The service was fantastic (not long, but included all of the parts we wanted), and the charisma and presence of Father Ken made everything flow very naturally and easy. Ministers in a Minute provided a step by step guide to all administrative activities we needed to complete both prior to and after the ceremony which was very helpful. Furthermore, we held our ceremony on Christmas Eve, which is a testament to the flexibility of Ministers in a Minute. While there is an increase in their base price for specific dates and certain locations (ex a downtown), it was well worth it given the exceptional service provided. If you are looking to have a ceremony that is certainly more intimate and personal than simply going to the courthouse, with the flexibility to have the service in a location that best suits your needs (we held ours on a downtown rooftop over the Mississippi River), we would highly recommend Ministers in a Minute. They (specifically Father Ken) really made this very special day even better.

We used this service, and were surprised to find they have bi-lingual ministers. The service was everything we could have asked for, and more! We even saved $60 on our marriage license with their premarital course. We would recommend Ministers in a Minute to anyone getting married.

Father Ken & Dr. Owens were extremely helpful in making Gina and my wedding a HUGE success. We couldn't have been more pleased, and the Marriage Prep Course helped us get a big discount on our marriage license. Thanks Ministers in a Minute. We'll refer you to all our friends.
