"Wow! Where to begin. Father Vince has been nothing short of amazing from the moment we chose him to officiate our wedding. From visits to his home, zoom calls and e-mails, he is always available and willing to talk to us. When the pandemic began and we started to worry about our wedding date, he was so supportive and thoughtful. He helped us navigate the toughest decision of our lives so far. He officiated our mini ceremony on July 10, 2020 and surpassed our expectations. We received so many compliments about him. He truly made our wedding during a pandemic and tropical rainstorm the most special night for us. We cannot wait to continue working with him for the next 10 months while we prepare for the big celebration. We would hire him again and again!"

"Highly recommend Father Vince! Our wedding ceremony was beautiful, felt personalized and spiritual. Father Vince was very accommodating, setting up video chats so we could speak prior to the wedding while maintaining COVID safety precautions. In the video calls, Father Vince took the time to get to know us and really listened which allowed him to provide a personal and memorable wedding ceremony."
