I was expecting some hassle and run around when it came to finding an officiant because we booked it 4 months in advance but when we contacted Hudson Valley Ceremonies they had no problems with the short notice and we had our contract emailed within an hour. They also accomodated us changing the time of the ceremony 2 months before. When we met with Lawrence the day of we were completely comfortable and it was great! I woud recommend them to anyone!
My husband and I contact Hudson valley Ceremonies. I immediately fell in love with Rev. Lawrence R. McCauley. Our phone interview was great. We laughed and talked the whole time. He is really a pleasant man and very funny. I hung up the phone knowing that he was our right choice. The day of the wedding was incredible. Rev. Lawrence McCauley was on time and professional. He wrote us the most beautiful vows. We had a few laughs during the ceremony. He said our wedding was one of his funniest and most favorite experiences. I highly recommend him! Thank you so much Rev. Lawrence for everything. Love Scott and Kristen and our puppies 🙂
