About this pro

I'm a real minister, NOT someone with an "instant" internet ordination.  My fee starts at $100 and is simply determined by travel distance and if a rehearsal is requested. I do big or small weddings throughout the Cleveland Akron areas or just the couple coming to me, for anyone anywhere, except same sex.  Complete info as well as independent reviews are on my website   Call me 440-829-7425 or e-mail me [email protected] directly, NOT through this site to discuss details of your wedding without any pressure to hire. 

Providing people with a nice ceremony when and where they want it, rather than a cold ceremony at the courthouse.

  • Tristan Russo

    Rev. Hary gave us great ideas and direction with our wedding. It was important to us to have a real actual minister (not internet ordained) and so after much looking around, we found Rev. Hary. His ceremony focused on our love and was brilliantly conveyed. Excellent service and a very nice person.

  • Tina Roberts

    Bradley and I are very pleased that we decided to use Rev. Hary for our New Years Eve wedding. His ceremony was memorable for us and also our guests. Completely satisfied!

  • Rebecca Giles

    Rev. Hary was absolutely wonderful! He did a fantastic job at our wedding. Highly recommend him!

  • Ashley Lawson

    We had a great experience using Rev. Hary for our wedding. He was skilled and easy to work with. His ceremony was well constructed and recited completely from memory. He was definitely the best choice by far.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Telephone me directly 440-829-7425 to discuss basic details of wedding rather than communicating through this site.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I pastored a church 20 years and have done nursing home and prison ministry as well as having done MANY weddings over the years.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My fee starts at $100 for couples who just come to me, and goes up depending on travel distance and if a rehearsal is requested.

How did you get started in this business?

Doing weddings provided a way to not only support myself and family, but also our ministry outreach in nursing homes and prisons. 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask the so-called officiant if they are internet ordained.  Just being "licensed" is nothing special because Ohio issues minister licenses to anyone; whether "instantly" ordained on the internet or by a real church like I was.  Your wedding is an important event, not a joke.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Be sure that you are right for each other.  If there are problems in the relationship already, don't think that marriage will solve those problems.
