See what other couples that have hired Texas Wedding Ministers have to say about their experience.
Minister Joseph Devlin was part of our big day. He made everything seem like it couldn’t be any more perfect. He is just amazing. Anyone would be lucky to have him be part of their special day because he definitely makes it one to remember.
My wife and I supposed to get married in Disneyworld but had to change our plans due to COVID-19. Our new wedding venue highly recommended Texas Wedding Ministers. They have a stellar list of ministers to choose from with flexibility in the ceremony options. We created our own ceremony for a Disney wedding and Minister Joseph did an incredible job implementing it! We highly recommended Minister Joseph Devlin and Texas Wedding Ministers!!
Minister Joseph Devlin performed our wedding ceremony and was fabulous!!! He’s such a wonderful and personable guy!! He was early, went over things with us, all in que! Thank you!
