Victor Oswald married my husband and I just 4 days ago, and I am still having friends and family telling me how amazing our ceremony was! 

We met with Victor and spoke several times to get our ceremony just right-and it was. It was personalized to be just for the two of us and could not have been more amazing and touching! Victor was on time each and every time we met with him. He even wore a tie in our wedding colors which I thought was a sweet touch :) He worked with both of us to ensure that we had everything we wanted and to make sure that we were comfortable and ready for our day! 

Because my husband and I are of different faiths, Victor worked to make sure that we both were represented in our comfort zones and it was truly a wonderful experience. Thank you for everything Victor! 

You will be more than pleased having Victor at your wedding!! - Amy and Nick

My husband and I were on the search for the perfect officiant for our wedding. We wanted somebody that was warm with a touch of humor, somebody that could write a ceremony for us and not just some cookie-cutter vows that you've heard in ceremony after ceremony, and somebody that would incorporate the traditions that we valued. Thankfully, we found Victor.

We had met with a couple of officiants prior to meeting with Victor and were unimpressed, then we found Victor's website - I fell in love with his words, and, after meeting him in person - we fell in love with him. He was everything we wanted in an officiant. We walked away from our first meeting with him, looked at each other and said, "He's the one."

We put our hearts into the questionnaire that he asks every couple to fill out and he wrote us the most perfect ceremony and vows. It was US. It made us laugh, it made us cry; it was beautiful. Victor is amazing at being able to tell your love story for the rest of the world to hear.

During the planning of our wedding me and my husband were overwhelmed with all the decisions that needed to be made. We wanted a non-traditional ceremony and we were in need of somebody who understood our personalities and was able to guide us towards completing a refined vision. 

Victor met with us and didn't just ask what we wanted, he found out who we were and sculpted the perfect ceremony around us. 

Victor was just about the only part of our wedding we didn't have to worry about. We have complete trust in his abilities and highly recommend him.

Joseph and I don't have enough words to express how happy we were with our ceremony. He made us so comfortable and confident in his services the day that we met him! 

The way Victor took the time to learn about us as a couple and the things we love about each other to make our ceremony so personal and intimate. He cared about what we wanted our wedding ceremony to express and what we wanted our guests to experience while at our wedding. He was available if we had any questions or concerns or any last minute changes. 

He truly made our wedding a wonderful celebration! It is something that we will never forget.

I cannot praise Victor Oswald and his services enough to do him proper justice! My husband and I were married by Victor in August of 2011. After searching high and low for an officiant that would cater to our needs, and align with our beliefs and what we were looking for in a wedding officiant, we were lucky enough to find Victor and the rest is history. 

Victor was so accommodating to us in terms of making sure that every single aspect of the wedding ceremony we imagined for ourselves was met. 

The ceremony, which he himself wrote the script of, was beautiful and breathtaking. We received many compliments from our wedding guests about how moving, individual, and unique our ceremony was. 

Victor was so easy to work with- he met with us in person and kept constant contact throughout our wedding planning process and after the wedding as well. He is kind, creative, open-minded, and the epitome of professionalism. Victor will give you the wedding ceremony of your dreams! 
- Laura and Jeff

We chose Victor to be our officiant because he allowed us the freedom to customize our ceremony, the personal touch he added and his kind and caring demeanor. He provided guidance where necessary but was also open to suggestions regarding how we wanted to make the ceremony our own. 

From our first meeting through the ceremony, Victor was accommodating to our requests and very pleasant to work with. He added a personal touch by asking us questions about how we met, what we loved about each other, and our dreams and inspirations. 

The result was an absolutely beautiful ceremony that felt so personal! We would absolutely recommend Victor to anyone wishing to have a wedding ceremony that you can hold in your hearts for many years!
