If you are planning to get married in or around Asheville and want a personalized and meaningful ceremony, book Philip at Asheville Marriages! He was a pleasure to work with from the off. Due to us being from out of town (Florida and London) we used Skype to meet Philip first. From that point, we both knew we had found our officiant. The communication was exceptional and Philip was professional throughout, allowing us freedom with our vows but also giving us ideas we might want to included and making great suggestions to changes. The best part for us was that he really GOT what we wanted to convey and really understood our vibe, and the first draft of our ceremony was spot on for our personalities and our love. We had minimal changes. Our guests complimented Philip and our ceremony over and over again, saying it was just so perfect for us. We would highly recommended.
