Steve Swan for your perfect wedding day!

5/ 5

Steve Swan was our wedding officiant for our destination wedding. We had never met Steve. When all was said and done…We couldn’t have been happier! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant! I would HIGHLY recommend Steve! It was as if Steve knew us for years. He is over the top professional, personable, and a master of his craft. He made my wife and I, both, so comfortable and happy. From the first phone call, to the last HUG good bye, Steve was the best officiant we could have had!!! My wife and I, as well as MANY of our guests, commented, AGAIN AND AGAIN, about how great he was! He made our special day perfect! Don’t waste any of your time debating on any other officiant. Steve is the best choice! Thanks Steve for being a part of our family and making our wedding day that much more special! Dane and Tanya, Mesa, AZ

BEAUTIFUL Ceremony!

5/ 5

Our wedding was officiated by Steve Swan. We were married on October 10th and had a lakeside ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. Steve did an AMAZING job! I first met Steve at a bridal show almost 2 years before our wedding and instantly felt comfortable with him. I saved his card and when time came closer my fiancé now husband and I met Steve at a local Panera. When we walk out from our meeting with Steve he looked at me and said “Well, that was an easy decision.” It was such a relief to hear that my future hubby felt the same comfort feeling from Steve that I had! Steve was very responsive to all our emails and was such a pleasure to have him officiate our wedding. He gave us all the tools we needed to put together a beautiful ceremony that I dreamed of having! If you are looking for an officiant I encourage to ask for Steve! I promise you will not regret or think twice about your decision. Thank you Steve for all your help and officiating our ceremony!

Still receiving compliments about how great Lon was!

5/ 5

We went with Sensational Ceremonies and met Lon who would be our officiant for the big day. We met him about a year prior at a Panera Bread where he went over what it was that he offered. We loved Lon from the first time we met him, such a personable guy and we knew he was the right one to perform the ceremony. He asked us questions about us, talked to us about his wife and it as nice; it wasn’t all business which is what you get on some of the meetings when you plan a wedding. Sensational Ceremonies offers a wide variety of ceremonies and you have the freedom to create your own. We selected the things that we liked and matched us. We had Lon come to the rehearsal, just so we could be at ease on the big day and we were glad we did. He offered us pointers on how to hold hands during the ceremony to help us get the best photos of the rings and the same with the sand ceremony (which he offered to bring a table for since the venue did not have one for us to use without a charge). On the day of the ceremony, it went perfect and flowed so well. Prior to the wedding, Lon had my husband and I write five sentences about why we loved the other person but we couldn’t share with each other, we sent it directly to him and he incorporated this in the ceremony. Everyone loved it, they laughed and they cried happy tears, the ceremony was beautiful. We received compliments all night about how great Lon was, and they were right, Lon was AMAZING!

Lissette was an absolute joy to work with for our wedding ceremony. When we first met, she greeted us with a big smile and a warm personality that instantly made us feel right at home with her. She was helpful along the way as we worked to build a personally tailored ceremony and bounced ideas off of her. We ended up with a beautiful ceremony that still gives me chills to think about, and she officiated it flawlessly. If you are looking for a personal interaction and someone you can feel comfortable with from the beginning, Lissette is the way to go!

He was so helpful when it came to putting in personal touches and choosing the perfect wedding wording for our ceremony. He is excellent about communication which is very important for the panicking bride such as myself. I am so glad we went with Sensational Ceremonies and extremely grateful for Lon guiding us the whole way. He made our ceremony very special, emotional, and completely our own. Truly an amazing ceremony and a day to remember!!! Thank you for everything.

Sensational Ceremonies did an excellent job. What a blessing it was to meet and have Lon as the officiant for our wedding. When we first meet Lon we knew he would do a good job and he truly exceeded our expectations. He helped us come up with a ceremony that was unique to our relationship. Our guests were shocked and many say they have never heard wedding vows so unique, beautiful and creative. We were nervous but Lon calm but funny personality calmed us down. I highly recommend sensational ceremonies for your bid day! Beyond Awesome!

Rev. Swan was wonderful

5/ 5

Steve Swan was a magnificent asset to our wedding. We had an outdoor event at a local country club. He provided us guiding words to help us design the wedding that best fit our personalities. In addition, Steve went above and beyond what we could have expected for service. We have a son with Asperger’s. Besides the rehearsal and ceremony, Steve met us for short “introduction” for our son. The purpose was to get him accustomed to Steve prior to the rehearsal and ceremony. It worked magically. Our son and daughter were very comfortable with him for the ceremony and I believe it was his patience that facilitated that. Steve presided over the ceremony with eloquent delivery. Many of our family commented how well-spoken he was with the delivery.

We had picked out a lot of what we wanted to be said from some options Steve had sent to us and he couldn’t have delivered it in a better way. The whole process right from initially contacting him to planning and executing the ceremony was very easy and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Incredible Ceremony

5/ 5

Steve Swan from Sensational Ceremonies was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. From his appearance, to the tone of his voice, to the vows chosen by him, everything was perfect. He found a way with the calmness in his voice and the look in his eyes to convey the importance of the vows soon to be spoken. We both believed all the way thru our relationship, and especially on this day, that God was actively involved in our lives. All too often I bet people getting married feel a minister is of “lesser” importance then the many other details on that special day. Ray and I are so very thankful that God interceded on our behalf and brought Reverend Steve to us. If you want a perfect ceremony, with God front and center, and the feeling of the Lord touching your marriage thru your minister, then ask for Reverend Steve Swan. It will make your ceremony perfect.

Lon Tosi and Sensational Ceremonies are the BEST

5/ 5

Selecting vendors for our wedding was a difficult task because I work in the wedding industry, but from day one, we knew that we needed Lon Tosi of Sensational Ceremonies to perform our ceremony from the bride’s past business with him. It was our goal to make both the ceremony and reception as personal as possible. Lon gave us pages and pages of potential words, every part of the spectrum from very religious to special ceremony pieces that most of our guests had never heard of or seen before. We chose to do a wine box ceremony and a warming of the rings. He allowed us to pick and choose what we liked and put all of the words together seamlessly like they belonged together from the beginning. Guests commented that it was the perfect length and he spoke from the heart, making the ceremony just as enjoyable as the reception. Sometimes, we think, couples forget how important the aspect of the wedding is. Make sure you hire Sensational Ceremonies to make your ceremony as memorable as it deserves to be!!!

I had the pleasure to choose Lon as my wedding officiant and he made it incredible. He was helpful in every way since the moment I talked to him on the phone! I had to do it all over the phone because I live in Chicago and my marriage was going to be held in Florida. At fist was a little difficult because his number wasn’t listed on the website and I could only communicate with the main person at Sensational Ceremonies, he wasn’t available and after calling a few times I finally got Lon’s number, yay! He helped me all the way with organization, tips, and to make me less nervous! when the final day came, he build up the excitement to my husband and when he saw me he was perplexed, thanks Lon! 😉 Overall everything he spoke was well said and very professional, I definitely encourage anyone wanting to get married to find him, he’s the best!

We had Lon for our wedding in Orlando, FL in October. We came all the way from the UK and he was fantastic from start to finish. Always easy to contact and quick in replying. 10 out of 10 for his service and our ceremony was exactly what we had hoped for and more. He really goes out of his way to make sure your ceremony is perfect and personal to each couple. Our special day would not have been the same without him and his wife Dianne who does the Married by Mail service. Would highly recommend to all.

Couldn't have asked for a better officiant

Rev. Steve Swan was amazing. From the moment we met with him to discuss our wedding, we knew that he was the one that we wanted to marry us. He was real, genuine, friendly, caring, and funny all wrapped up into one for us. He was able to pick up our personalities as well and played off of that to truly cater our ceremony for us and not deliver a cookie cutter wedding. I could not have asked for a better person to marry us. Thank you so much Steve, and we still are wanting to have a mini golf match with you and your wife in the near future. 🙂

A Beautiful Ceremony

5/ 5

From the moment we met Lon Tosi we knew we had to have him as our officiant. Lon has a personality that is the prefect fit for an officiant. Lon is relaxed, poised, confident and comforting. Every couple wants their wedding ceremony to be sacred, special and unique to them, Lon was there to create that for us. We had know idea where to begin in creating a wedding ceremony and after one meeting with Lon our ceremony was complete and perfect! The only change we made was the changing of our unity ceremony, other than that, nothing was changed! We heard nothing but compliments from our guest on how perfect Lon made our ceremony. They felt as though Lon had known us our whole life by the way he was so connected to us. Our ceremony was outside and with a country mic that was not working (not Lon’s fault at all), our guest still had no issues hearing him because of how he projects his voices and connects with his bride and groom. We could not be more thankful for a ceremony that could not have been anymore beautiful and we will always have Lon to thank for that!

Rev. Glynn is Awesome!

5/ 5

Rev. Glynn made it so easy for us to create a beautiful wedding ceremony. We felt very comfortable with him immediately during our initial meeting, and we hired him on the spot. He always responded quickly to our questions leading up to the wedding. We combined portions of ceremonies from many templates he provided with some personal touches, and we especially enjoyed the “homework” he asked us to write about why we loved each other. The homework made our ceremony even more personal and special. On the day of the ceremony, he was very supportive as we had to decide at the last minute whether to hold our ceremony inside or outside due to rain. He helped us make the transition inside and never complained that the move delayed our start by about 20 minutes. Rev. Glynn’s wife, Connie, attended our rehearsal and assisted on our wedding day, and we also enjoyed working with her. They are an amazing couple who will make you feel at ease and comfortable on what can be a stressful day. We give them our highest recommendation!

Reverend Steve Swan was a great asset to our wedding planning and day of ceremony. My husband did not want a religious ceremony and I am of faith, Revered Steve was able to provide a balance we could both agree on and be happy with. I have never seen such a service where you are able to work so closely with the wording and layout of the ceremony process and options provided for you to choose from. He was well organized and also quick to respond to any emails or questions I had. I wish I could have gotten to writing his praise sooner. With all the minor and major things that can go wrong on your wedding day it was nice to know that reverend Steve Swans services were not one of them. I only have good things to say about him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

Rev. Steve Swan officiated our wedding at Casa Feliz last month and was fantastic. We got to know each other at our initial meeting over coffee and instantly felt comfortable with him. Besides being a great man, he was very helpful with the whole process. This was my wife and I’s first time getting married and Rev. Steve walked us through the entire ceremony process, providing helpful tips and past experiences along the way. After the initial meeting he kept in contact making sure any questions we had were answered. He was prompt with all responses and delivered everything as promised. He met us the day before for our rehearsal and, since we did not have a wedding planner, gave us insight as to how things usually run (Rev. Steve has done many ceremonies at Casa Feliz so his experience was very helpful!) On the day of the ceremony, Rev. Steve was early and let us know exactly what to expect. He was one of the last people I spoke with before I, the groom, walked out and he was a very calming presence. During the ceremony, he performed perfectly, even rolling with some of my wife’s unexpected improvisations. He was engaging, well spoken, and very professional. After the ceremony, Rev. Steve was quick to submit our marriage certificate and we received it very shortly after. Once you meet Rev Steve you will feel like you’ve known him for years. We highly recommend him for your ceremony. Thank you Rev. Steve!!

Great Officiant

5/ 5

At first, my wife and I were contemplating asking a close family member to officiate our wedding. During our deliberations, we realized that there is so much more involved in being an officiant than just being a clergymen or notary. After having read such stellar reviews about Lon Tosi, we set up a face to face meeting. We literally fell in love with Lon. He was such a sweet and caring man, and he had just met us! He put all of our worries at ease. During the first meeting he addressed all of our concerns. He also gave us some wonderful ideas and options for our ceremony. In the months to come, Lon worked with each of us in developing our vows as well as the ceremony as a whole. He also offered music for the ceremony, which turned out spectacular. Overall, we could not have a higher opinion of Lon and his services. He truly made our wedding day special and memorable.Comments

He worked with us through near hurricane weather, found us a back up alternative location in a flash (which thankfully we didn’t need to use) and really showed amazing calm under pressure.

When we started planning our wedding in Orlando, FL, my wedding planner recommended Sensational Ceremonies for our wedding ceremony. Lon was available for our wedding date and after talking a bit on the phone, we set up a date to meet with my fiance. We talked with Lon quite a bit, just getting to know him and filling him in on our story. He is an all around amazing person. It’s obvious that he has a true passion for what he does. I thought that it was nice that we were able to include what we wanted in our ceremony. We were able to shape it to what made sense for us and what was a reflection of us as a couple. Lon helped guide us through the process and made our ideas come to life in his ceremony. Our wedding ceremony took place at Leu Gardens in April. Lon did such an amazing job. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I believe he was the perfect person to conduct our ceremony because he made it easy for us to follow along, added humor, and didn’t give us a hard time when we forgot some of our vows:) If you are looking for a truly gifted officiant for your future wedding ceremony I would most definitely recommend Lon Tosi! He is easy to get in touch with if you have questions and is quick to respond. You will not be disappointed!

My new wife and I couldn’t say enough positive things about our experience in working with Mr. Lon Tosi. It unfortunately rained on our wedding day, but Lon adapted well and smoothly like the professional he is and made the shorter version of our ceremony amazing still. But what really showed us how good of a man he is was offering to do a private ceremony to do the complete version of the ceremony we originally planned. It was extremely important to us to do the ceremony and so we did the ceremony again a week after our wedding. I never heard of any one doing this before and he definitely made both days feel special. Although I hope to never have to use him again (lol), I would definitely recommend his services to any one within ear shot speaking about getting married.

Reverend Steve Swan was our officiant at our wedding last month and we could not have been happier with our ceremony. We met with Reverend Swan several months before and we immediately felt at ease with him and happily shared our story. After signing the contract we received several templates we could use to create our own unique ceremony. Reverend Swan had no problems with us taking bits and pieces from each and creating exactly what we wanted to say. He gave us helpful suggestions for passages and the order of the ceremony. When the rehearsal came, he made sure that everyone felt comfortable with their role in the ceremony and was willing to run through it is many times as necessary. The day of the wedding, Reverend Swan helped put us at ease and calmly walked us through our vows. So many of our guests told us how personal our ceremony was even though we had only met and spoken with him a few times prior. Reverend Swan did a sensational job that was professional, creative, personal and engaging.

Now that dust has settled after the wedding and honeymoon, I wanted to send a personal “thank you” for your officiant services. You did such a fantastic job Lon! Many people commented to us on how well the officiant did and how wonderful the message was. I couldn’t agree with them more. You spoke so elegantly and with such passion. We loved every moment of it! You were the perfect fit for us. I can’t thank you enough for being the wonderful officiant you are.

I couldn’t be happier with my wedding ceremony, thanks to Mr. Lon Tosi. Lon is an incredibly kind man that makes you feel so comfortable within the first minutes of meeting him. He walked my husband and I through the entire ceremony process and allowed us to mold the ceremony into a truly personal and unique experience. He responds so fast to emails that if you have any questions or need help in creating your ceremony you will get a response in no time. The actual ceremony went beautifully and Lon was the perfect person to perform it for us. It’s easy to get caught up in the planning process for the wedding with all the minor details, but at the end the day it is about marrying your soul mate; I am so happy I entrusted Lon as our officiant.

GREAT!!

5/ 5

I had Lon as our officiant at the Hammock Beach Resort. We had our wedding in FL but live in VA. We did everything via phone and Lon gave us a great recommendation on how everything should go but of course let us do whatever we wanted 🙂 We wanted our ceremony to be serious but yet have our guests laugh a few times and that is EXACTLY what he did! I have several of our guests come up to us and ask us where we found Lon b/c he was an exceptional speaker and it really felt as if he has known us for years! He also was dressed very professional 🙂 I would definitely recommend Lon for any wedding- he is a PRO!

Alex and I really enjoyed our ceremony. Mr. Tosi was a true professional. We did not meet him in person until the day before. We had set everything up over a couple of phone calls. Mr. Tosi made our day so very special and we can’t thank him enough. Our entire wedding party enjoyed him too. He came in with exactly what was planned and delivered 110 percent. Thank you so much for making our day so special.

Sensational Ceremonies – Steve Swan

5/ 5

Steve Swan provided us with a ceremony built specifically to our needs, desires, and wishes. He was quick to answer any questions we had and he helped us find ways to rework certain aspects to reflect the loss of loved ones. The ceremony was truly unique to myself and my husband and made our day as amazing, emotional, and wonderful!

Rev. Steve Swan had married my sister and her husband about 3 years ago, we were lucky to find him to have him marry us. We took the premarital class that he gives and it was just too perfect. He got to know us and we got to know him months before the wedding, it was like we had a good friend marry us that knew everything about us. The wedding ceremony was just perfect and not too long, we wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to marry us!!! Thank You Rev. Swan!

Very Professional

5/ 5

Sensational Ceremonies made our wedding ceremony that much more amazing. Reverend Ferguson handled our contract and made the process of selecting an officiant so easy. Once I spoke with Reverend Ferguson, I knew that we had found our officiant. Marcus Moore was our officiant. He reviewed our ceremony selections and added the parts that we forgot to include. He was very pleasant to work with for our rehearsal and wedding day. We were so elated with his services that we asked him and his wife to join us for our reception. Sensational Ceremonies makes the process of looking for the perfect wedding vows effortless. We did not meet Marcus until our rehearsal dinner because it was a destination wedding, but we knew right away that he would provide us with the best service possible.

Rev. Glenn has an awesome personality and attitude. He has to be one of the coolest reverends I have ever met. He worked with us on making our ceremony truly our own. The ceremony was almost perfect with a few minor details that could have gone better. I absolutely loved how open he was to letting us change the ceremony to fit us as a couple. His comedic attitude also allowed us to get over the hiccups like the best man losing the rings. He is absolutely an experienced man who knows what he is doing. Awesome vendor.

Lon Tosi from Sensational Ceremonies was truly SENSATIONAL!

5/ 5

Our ceremony was magical and it was all because of Lon. He has a kind demeanor, evoking confidence as well as poised and professional. You hire an experienced officiant so it takes the worry out of planning but we lucked out because not only did we get an experienced officiant but he had personality, style, ability, flexibility, and knowledge. We knew after our consultation that he was someone we could trust. We created a ceremony that was uniquely ours. Lon respected our wishes and made us feel comfortable. He had such wonderful material for us to go through and he pointed us in the right direction and guided us to what finally became our wedding ceremony. We received so many compliments, not only on how beautiful the ceremony was, but also on how well Lon conducted it. It was the gentle manner in which Lon spoke and the whole flow of the ceremony. We cannot thank Lon Tosi and Sensational Ceremonies enough for such a beautiful ceremony that we will remember and cherish forever!

Rev Glynn Ferguson was our officiant and he was great. Whenever we had any questions or needed to talk he was super quick to respond. He was flexible and worked with us to incorporate some unique pieces of our ceremony like our unity cocktail where he actually mixed a drink in a cocktail shaker during our ceremony. He was very professional and made sure everything in our ceremony was perfect. We felt completely confident in him from the moment we met him and he was extremely friendly and personable.

We just had our wedding ceremony done at the portofino Bay hotel in Orlando by Lon Tosi from sensational ceremonies. He was amazing! He really got to know me and my husband and I felt that his words were so true and Ifelt like he really got to know us as a couple!! He took the time to know what kind of ceremony would fit our personalities and truly made our ceremony the most amazing fit for us. I have received so many comments from friends and family asking how we knew him and they even said that he made ceremony. And he actually got my rough and tough husband to cry . He truly made our ceremony beautiful and personal.

An Amazing Company

5/ 5

Lon Tosi officiated at a commitment ceremony in August for my fiancée and me. From our first meeting, Lon was incredible. He worked with us to make sure that the ceremony was tailored to our backgrounds and wishes. He kept in constant contact with us to make sure that things were progressing, and was always available if we had questions or concerns. Lon fell ill a few days before the ceremony. He called us to let us know, and said he planned to stay home and rest in order to be better for our big day. Since Lon was ill, Glynn Ferguson came and ran us through our rehearsal the day before the ceremony. Glynn was personable and professional, and he and Lon had talked extensively about the ceremony so he was up to speed on our plans. On the big day, Lon had thankfully recovered and was able to perform the ceremony. He did a fantastic job, and I honestly can’t imagine having had a better officiant. I wholeheartedly recommend Lon, Glynn, and the rest of Sensational Ceremonies.

Rev Rick was perfect!!

5/ 5

Rev Rick with Sensational Ceremonies was absolutely amazing. He was highly recommended from Stylish Traditions Wedding & Event Design and we were more than happy with our entire experience with Rev. Rick! He was very thorough, detailed, flexible, accommodating and fun. You can tell he genuinely enjoys his role in weddings and I think that says a great deal about him. We had a destination wedding in St. Pete Beach, FL and he was very flexible with our crazy schedules. From the very first time we spoke to him on the phone, to the day of the wedding he was always available for questions and was very sincere. He smiled almost as much as we did that day. Thanks Rev Rick for helping make our wedding day truly perfect!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.

Rev. Swan of Sensational Ceremonies

5/ 5

Reverend Steve Swan officiated over our marriage this past November – and from the time we met him last spring – to the rehearsal and of course- to the big day of – he was extremely supportive, professional, and informative in all that we had ahead of us. We found Rev. Swan on the Sensational Ceremonies website and he was the first (and only) minister my husband and I met with in preparation for our wedding. We first met him over the phone and then in person months before the wedding – and there really was no doubt from our first conversation that we were in good hands with Rev. Swan! My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds, and although we did not want to focus on one religion over another – we knew wanted to include elements of Christianity but still not be very traditional. Between Rev. Steve and the information he provided, we were able to create a unique ceremony perfect for us! He provided all of the details we needed – including a packet of customizable ceremony options, logistical details, and most importantly – the kindness, patience, and emotional support during such an important moment in our lives. He genuinely takes interest in all of the couples he works with – and his sincerity and professionalism exuded throughout our ceremony. My parents are devout Catholics – but they could not say enough about how great Rev. Swan was in performing our ceremony. I have people still approaching me saying how lovely it was – and inquiries on “who” was that person who did such a wonderful job officiating. I recommend Rev. Swan and Sensational Ceremonies wholeheartedly for couples about to take this major step. He will give you the support you need and provide you with most lovely, sincere, and meaningful ceremony you have been wishing for!

I would reccommend him to anyone in the Central Florida area who is looking to have a memorable wedding with an officiant who is easy to work with. We did all of our correspondences by email and microsoft word, which really worked for me as I had plenty of other aspects to worry about as our wedding turned out to be a bit of a last minute affair.

Ceremony – Steve Swan

We hired Steve Swan from Sensational Ceremonies to officiate our wedding ceremony. We couldn’t be more pleased with his performance! He guided us through putting together our own personalized ceremony and kept us organized leading up to the big day. During rehearsal, Steve was well organized and helped calm our nerves a bit by reviewing all the important parts of walking through the ceremony events. When the big day arrived, Steve was caring, professional, and performed a beautiful ceremony! His voice and personality was truly genuine and kind. I would recommend Steve Swan to anyone I know. Good Luck to planning Brides! And Thanks for a wonderful ceremony Steve! P.S. We’ve experienced other officiants from this company and we were impressed with them as well!

From the beginning everything was organized from getting to meet with the officiant to actually being able to help put your ceremony together. Mr. Tosi performed an amazing ceremony, that truly was a magical and memorable one and is still raved about today. Thank You Sensational Ceremonies.

A Beautiful Ceremony

5/ 5

Since my husband and I did not belong to a church at the time we knew we wanted to hire an officiant that was also a pastor. I had read very positive reviews about Sensational Ceremonies and after meeting Steve Swan at a bridal show, I knew instantly that he was right for us and our wedding. He had one consultation with me and my then fiancé and my fiancé also became a fan of Steve. We got to know each other by telling Steve how we met and why we loved each other and Steve told us more about himself and why he enjoyed officiating weddings. Steve was very genuine and really seemed to care about his couples. My husband and I felt very comfortable with him. Steve explained to us exactly how things would work and he made it very easy for us. We had nothing to worry about. He sent us a ceremony packet where we basically got to create our own ceremony but he was very responsive and helpful when we had questions and asked for his input or opinion. Thanks to the ceremony packet Steve gave us that provided us so many options to choose from, we were able to create a ceremony that was special and unique to us. With Steve’s help, we created a beautiful ceremony. We could hear guests whispering during the ceremony about how beautiful it was and many of them commented afterwards. My husband and I could not be happier with Steve Swan and Sensational Ceremonies.

A Wonderful Day!

5/ 5

I would absolutely recommend Sensational Ceremonies! My husband and I were planning an out-of-state wedding (we’re from New Jersey), so we were unable to ever meet anyone in person until we came down a few days before our wedding. Reverend Ferguson and Reverend Swan made planning so easy! They were very responsive- the e-mailed you back within a matter of hours and you could call them at any hour. Reverend Swan performed our ceremony and it was perfect. After you pay your deposit, you get sent a packet where you can customize your ceremony so it is built according to you and your preferences. Everyone was talking about how beautiful the ceremony was during our cocktail hour and reception. My bridesmaid is planning on using Sensational Ceremonies for her wedding in 2013 after seeing our wedding. I would absolutely use Sensational Ceremonies again if I had to do my wedding over!

Lon Tosi is a Wonderful Officiant

5/ 5

When deciding to get married in Orlando, I asked the caterer at Westgate Town Center if she knew of an officiant and immediately she referred me to Lon Tosi with Sensational Ceremonies. I called the number, left a message and within two minutes I got a call back. I explained that my future husband and I were coming to stay in my timeshare for a week and wanted to get married, no guest, just us and my brother taking pictures and video. We are older getting remarried yet wanted someone who could marry us making us feel special. After speaking with Loni, hearing his voice, tone of voice and his enthusiasm with "every wedding is special" attitude, I KNEW I found my officiant. Lon was it for me. He instantly emailed me all the info as to wedding ceremony wording. I went over different selections and customized what fit my needs. Lon would immediately respond to any emails and we would go over what I chose. No matter how many times I changed things or added something Lon was helpful and pleasant. He treated me like a VIP. I could not wait to met this person. When our wedding day came, Lon was early. He arrived with his wife, who was so lovely and kind and offered to take pictures of our ceremony. Lon was so well dressed and groomed. He had the biggest smile on his face and was just unbelievably charming and wonderful to my groom and I. I felt so relaxed and confident in this officiant. Lon spoke with such warmth in his voice and was so sincere, I felt like he was family. He seemed to enjoy marring us and participated in our ceremony with true sincerity. I surprised my husband with a live butterfly release and Lon went the extra mile by added the butterfly poem to our ceremony. I can not express strongly enough that he was indeed PERFECT. My husband and I were so thrilled to have him marry us. Our expectations were more than met. Thank you Lon for making our day so wonderful. We will never forget you. You take a beautiful picture as well!!!!!!!!! Paulette and Bob McFarland Mt. Laurel New Jersey

Lon did such an amazing job delivering a ceremony mostly written by my mom. He was eloquent and spoke in a way that mimicked the emotion in the room without overdoing it. Our guests were captivated! After the ceremony so many of our guests told us it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever seen! Lon helped us personalize the ceremony further by adding additional readings and the wine box ceremony. It’s a tradition we look forward to continuing on every anniversary!

Most Amazing Day, thanks to Rev. Glynn

5/ 5

Having moved to the Orlando area only 6 months prior to getting engaged, neither my husband or I knew of who to have marry us. Thanks to Disney for giving us a list of recommended officiants! After looking over the list and going to the websites, we decided that Rev. Glynn was the best choice. This was only confirmed after we had our first meeting with him. It was one of the best afternoon’s just sitting around talking. We all got along so well and over the course of the year we took to plan the wedding he was so helpful and encouraging. We did a custom ceremony, but it was perfect for us. Rev. Glynn made us feel like even if he had done this type of wedding before, the choices we made were perfect! The day of rehearsal and the wedding were amazing, he helped keep us calm and the mood light! I could not imagine our special day without him there! Thank you so much! I HIGHLY recommend sensational weddings to everyone I meet that is planning on getting married! What an amazing experience!

Forever Grateful for Rev. Rick Lackore & to SC

5/ 5

To say that we are so happy we contacted Sensational Ceremonies, and got to have the pleasure of Rev. Rick Lackore marry us, would be a drastic understatement. My husband and I were brought up Catholic, so originally we found an "Old" Catholic priest to marry us; as only an "Old" Catholic priest can marry outside of the church. Two months before our wedding, he bailed on us. At that point, we didn’t think that it really mattered who was marrying us, as long as someone was marrying us, and they were a person of God. We couldn’t have been more wrong! We contacted Sensational Ceremonies at the last minute, and all of the Orlando officiants were booked. Luckily for us, one of their Tampa officiants, Rev. Rick Lackore, was available and willing to travel to Orlando. Rev. Rick, my fiance at the time, and myself all met up at a Panera, about half way between Tampa and Orlando a week or so before our wedding. Right off the bat we knew Rev. Rick was a good choice, and that everything really does happen for a reason. He was very professional, yet soft and caring at the same time. He made our meeting so easy, and so comfortable that it didn’t really feel like we were meeting him for the first time at all. My fiance and I got to put together our very own ceremony, which made it so personal, and that much more special. Rev. Rick was there every step of the way to help us through the process. Everything felt good, and right, and was very exciting. For our rehearsal, unfortunately we were dealing with some changes within our venue, so there was no coordinator there to help out. Fortunately, it didn’t even matter because Rev. Rick stepped up and was Reverend, coordinator, and everything else. And we can not forget about his lovely wife, Tammy, who was also there helping us and her husband. They were fabulous. Our rehearsal was a success because of Rev. Rick and Mrs. Lackore. Our Wedding Day: Rev. Rick and his wife are always early, but knowing all that was going on with the venue, they were there extra early. Rev. Rick very politely, but sternly, let the venue know that it was unacceptable that there was no coordinator there for the rehearsal. He and his wife also stepped up, yet again, to help out with whatever needed to be done (which was everything) to get ready for our big day. It’s crazy, but they did even more coordinating and set-up than they did at our rehearsal. Once the wedding started, I was heading down the isle and was in the beginning stages of a very bad panic attack from knowing that everyone of our guests was watching me. I get up to Rev. Rick and he smiles at me, and very calmly mouths to me "Are you ok"? I said "Yeah, I’m just about to pass out from this panic attack". Immediately I noticed that he kept eye contact with me, and kept his smile. He had a calmness about him that just melted all of my anxiety away. Then I grabbed my soon to be husband’s hands, looked into his eyes, and Rev. Rick performed the most beautiful ceremony ever. He was very prepared, and well spoken. There was a lot of love, care, and emotion in his delivery. He was nothing short of Amazing! He even did the dinner blessing that I forgot to ask him to do. He had no idea until the DJ was announcing the dinner blessing by Reverend Rick Lackore. He just stood up and did it; no shocked expression, and no notice to anyone that this was not expected. He just did it, and did a great job. The prices at Sensational Ceremonies are good to begin with, but we got so, so much more than we paid for. We want to give a huge thanks to Sensational Ceremonies, but we want to give an even bigger thanks to Reverend Rick Lackore and his beautiful wife Tammy. Thank You Rev Rick and Tammy. Our day would have been great for us regardless, but it definitely would not have been as successful or as special with out the two of you. You guys helped make our day the Amazingly, Fabulously, Magical day that it was. We just can not thank you enough. Love and Always Thankful, Mr. and Mrs. Gilligan

Lon officiated our ceremony earlier this month at Leu Gardens. He was suburb! I cannot say enough on how please we were with his assistance from the planning to the main event. I had some concerns on the ceremony early in the planning process and he made time to schedule a call to discuss in detail his recommendations and our plan for the big day. He guided us through creating a ceremony that was unique and beautiful; it fit our love and personalities to a tee. His execution at the rehearsal and the ceremony was perfect. We could not have asked for a better officiant. Thank you so much Lon, you helped make the day unforgettable:)

Our Dreams Come True

5/ 5

After searching for weeks for someone to do our wedding vows I came across Sensational Ceremonies through a google search. After contacting Rev Ferguson I felt very comfortable with our conversation and he referred me to Lon Tosi. My husband and I met him at the local Panera and knew right off the bat he was going to be a perfect fit for us. Lon was extremely warm, inviting, and made us feel very special. After meeting with Lon we scheduled everything with Sensational Ceremonies that day. We were given a guide to help us pick out and customize our vows and this made working with Lon so easy! We also did our pre-marital course with Rev Ferguson and he is just as down to earth as Lon. Again feeling so special and comfortable with him too. I would recommend and have continued to recommend Sensational Ceremonies to anyone getting married. Our wedding ceremony included everything we could have ever wanted and dreamed for, they truly made my dream come true. John and I were married May 22 2010 and still to this day family and friends talk about how beautiful the ceremony turned out. John & I wish you the absolute best in years to come.

Reverend Steve Swan

5/ 5

I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to have Reverend Swan as our officiant! He is so easy to work with that we had no worries about our ceremony. Sensational Ceremonies provides a packet of mulitple varieties of ceremonies and we were able to piece together our own ceremony that perfectly reflected our own beliefs and relationship. We had an inter-faith ceremony and Reverend Swan worked very well with the Rabbi and the whole process was seamless. We also did pre-marital counseling with Reverend Swan and it was invaluable. We got to know him a little through the whole process and both thought he was an amazing individual and very inspiring. He was easy going and was open to adding a few things to the ceremony that were not traditional but reflected our personalities and we are eternally grateful to him. Reverend Swan was so impressive that one of my guests asked for his information because she is getting married soon and wanted him as her officiant. I highly recommend Reverend Swan!

Rev. Glynn Ferguson was my officiant for my wedding on January 30th of 2010. He was very helpful in the process of creating our ceremony to make it personal to us. Unique. You have the option of picking from many different things he has to offer, add or subtract things of your own, so that in the end it’s a custom ceremony made just for you. He made sure to be there not only during the wedding, but right before the ceremony as well. He was a pleasure to have and I’m very glad to have chosen him as our wedding officiant.

We had an intimate wedding at a luxury hotel in Orlando, and Lon Tosi was our officiant. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better guy for the task! Lon is passionate about what he does, and that’s evident in his work. He is a great speaker and didn’t have any issues doing it “our way.” My wife and I love to joke around, and Lon infused humor into his presentation. We even “switched up the menu” ten minutes before the ceremony, asking him if we could update our Facebook statuses (to Married) on our Droids before he pronounced us Mr. and Mrs. He obliged without hesitation, and our guests ate it up. Lon was one of the big highlights of our wedding, and we wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wants a masterful ceremony.
