From the begining Bryant was nothing but helpful, kind, and reassuring. He is about an hour away and with my work schedule it was hard to meet up with him, so we planned the ceremony through email and phone. I couldn't have asked for a better ceremony. He guided us through it given us ideas, but let us put our own twist to things. We also wanted a short ceremony, which he also gave us. Everyone in the bridal party, parents, and guests said how great he was. He made us and our guests cry and laugh during our ceremony, which fit me and my husband. We could tell he loves what he does and couldn't have asked for someone better!!!
LOVEEEEEEEED him!!!!!!!! Bryant is the kindest guy you will ever meet and HE KNOWS weddings!!! I emailed him 23498735 questions, he always responded within a few hours with very detailed answers. The whole "application" process for a marriage can be a bit confusing, yet the Marriage Man spoon feeds you through it all and provides you emails/links/paper work to help you with all of it. He arrived to our wedding an HOUR early just to touch base, talk to the best man about rings, our speaker about where she would stand, and my dad/groom about handing me away. He spoke loud and clear --- didnt need a microphone, and made the whole day really beautiful. He is very professional! I cant recommend him enough. He gave us many options to create our own ceremony to our liking and we were able to read it word-for-word before the day. Its obvious he has done this for YEARS and knows exactly what he is doing. He never pressures you into anything, he is just full of knowledge and advice for making your day exactly how you want it. We LOVED him!!!!!!!!!
Rev. Bryant did a spectacular job!! Our guests were ranting and raving about how professional he was and what a beautiful ceremony he performed and my husband and I cannot agree more!!! He made the day absolutely PERFECT, and I highly recommend the Marriageman!!!!
Bryant was so nice and very helpful.
Bryant was awesome. From the first time we met him down to our ceremony. He was always quick to respond to my emails and always followed up when I didnt respond. He was extremely helpful in making our ceremony something that was meaningful to us and our family. He always made himself available even at odd hours, not that I ever needed to call him, but he always assured he would be available.
Rev. Bitner conducted our ceremony. He spoke so wonderfully! He's such a down to earth person. He spoke frequently with my husband via email days leading up to the wedding for any questions we had he was always able to help us. Thank you so much Rev. Bitner for marrying us!
Bryant was incredibly helpful during our planning process. He was very flexible and listened to how we wished the ceremony to look. He allowed us to edit and add whatever we wanted to the ceremony. He arrived early to our ceremony and even took some pictures of us as were posing, which he later that night, he sent a link so we could see the pictures. This was awesome because we immediately had pictures to view and to send to friends and family. He had all the documents we needed to submit for our marriage license with printed directions and highlighted sections.
He was great to work with and although I won't be getting married again, I would suggest him to other brides, including my...
Bryant made planning our ceremony so easy! You can call or email him anytime and he gets back to you right away. He has tons of options to make your ceremony unique as well. We rehearsed an hour before the ceremony and it was flawless! Our guests continue to talk about "the marriage man" and how he made our ceremony wonderful. Not only does he make the ceremony fantastic, but he is a thoughtful person! He takes some pictures, makes a website for you available the next day, and gives you all the details you need for after the ceremony. I was able to pick up our certified copies of our marriage license and change my name within a few days! He is fantastic!!
Bryant was fantastic and everything we wanted as an officiant. My husband (!) is Jewish and I am Catholic, so we wanted to take pieces from each other's faiths, but still make sure everyone in the room knew what was going on at all times. Bryant took care of that to a T! He had great explanations for everything, and really allowed us to plan the ceremony. Bryant was more like a guide in that he gave us helpful suggestions, but never took the focus from what we wanted. And his fee is soooo affordable. He was fantastic and I would hire him again in a second. Thank you, Bryant!!
He was amazing! He made us feel comfortable. It was the perfect ceremony.
The Marriage Man was great! I met with him and my (now) husband months in advance. He guided us in the right direction with our ceremony (short and sweet, great for the guests and the wedding party). He was professional and very nice. You can design your ceremony however you like, but he has a default script that you can build yours from. I pretty much went with the standard script, and added in an Irish blessing. The script was great. I actually had it memorized (though i didnt mean to) but when we went through the ceremony I knew everything that was coming up. The Marriage Man has a wonderful historical house in Penns Grove that he actually does ceremonies at. If I had already booked my venue place I might have booked there bc it's great for an intimate ceremony. I would definitely recommend him!
We found the Marriage man through the Knot.com. Throughout our many conversations it was evident that Bryant was the only officant for us. Bryant was always reachable and very affordable. His quality of service extends beyond his contract, it is his nature. He is professional and provided us with sense of comfort that can not be matched. His fellow officants, Reverend Shapley is of equal comparison, she provided us with a memorable ceremony. Once you have found the marriage man you need to look no further. You are in the right hands!
My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with the wonderful experience we had working with Bryant, "The Marriage Man". Bryant officiated our wedding and our entire experience was perfect, from his initial responsiveness to our inquiries, meeting with him to go over our plans for our service, on to the 'tweaking' of our ceremony, and finally his warm and professional delivery on the day of our wedding! We have received so many compliments on the personal and truly beautiful ceremony, and our experience was topped off with the unexpected but very enjoyable wedding website that Bryant created with candid shots that he took on our wedding day. We could not have asked for anything more!!
Bryant was awesome! When I emailed/called him with questions, we responded very quickly. He helped us create our cerremony so it fit with our style. He arrived at our ceremony 1.5 hours before it was to start so I didn't have to worry about anything (lol, he also chased down my moh after the ceremony to have her sign it). He sent us pictures of our ceremony and created a webpage of our pics the very next day. He was awesome!
Bryant from the marriage man was one of the nicest people we have ever met. He invited us to his beautiful home to talk about our wedding and gave us a tour. He was thorough and professional, and helped us to put together a beautiful ceremony that everyone loved. Bryant was great to work with and we highly recommend him.
They signed contract, married us, and gave us all these cute gifts in under 3 days with such short notice who can ask for any better.
Did a great job at the ceremony but was kind of a pain to work with otherwise. Talks A LOT, took 20 minutes to get a answer to a simple question. Fought with me and my Mom a bit right before the ceremony on how we were doing the unity candle b/c he thought it wouldn't work well. I didn't care, I was doing it for Mom so how ever she wanted it was how we were going to do it. He just kept talk about how it was a bad idea and it took to long to get him to drop it and I really didn't need that 10 minutes before walking down the aisle... But he did do a great job during the ceremony so I'm glad we went with him.
Dear Colleen and Ben,
I am pleased to hear you thought the ceremony was "great" more than four months after the ceremony. However, on a very windy day next to the Chesapeake Bay, it was my responsibility to SUGGEST (I surely don't believe "fought" accurately describes my making a suggestion about an alternate way to do a candle ceremony on a very windy day) anything that I believe will benefit the ceremony. Sometimes in the excitementof a wedding day, brides are a little more "sensitive" than they otherwise might be, and a "suggestion" might be seen as an attack rather than a simple suggestion (I think they have a TV show that demonstrates that). If I was a "pain" in doing everything possible to make certain that your wedding ceremony turned out "great," I sincerely apologize--but I thought you were just wonderful to work with and it was my pleasure to help you have a ceremony you and your guests enjoyed. I am very glad that, in the end, you thought the ceremony was great!
Best wishes to you always,
Bryant Heisinger, ULC
