“Todd and I had a beautiful wedding, picturesque! We were so appreciative to Pastor Bob for making it special, by allowing us to express our own ideas, while adding very fitting and personal touches of his own. He helped make our ceremony one that was meaningful and memorable. We were thankful he was personable and well spoken. I especially was thankful for his prompt responses and effort with planning and helping us create our vision. We would definitely recommend him to our friends.” -Leslie M.H. S…

“Pastor Hovey did an amazing job preforming our ceremony. He made the message fun, entertaining, personal, and most importantly about the gospel of Christ. I wanted our ceremony to be a celebration of love, not just the love that Brad and I have for each other,but the love that Christ has for us. We also had communion during the ceremony where Brad and I took the sacraments. Pastor Hovey made that moment very special, it was an intimate moment between myself, my husband, and Christ. One of the things that I loved about Pastor Hovey doing our ceremony was that he was truly happy to be there. It was not just another ceremony he had to preform, he was excited and energetic which made us feel comfortable and less nervous. We loved having Pastor Hovey at our wedding and would recommend him to any one we know.”

Excellent Officiant…and So Much More! posted 4/21/12 “I’m so glad we found Pastor Bob. Not only was he an excellent officiant, but we also really enjoyed our pre-marital counseling with him, and have also visited his church. After being together for 9 years, we thought pre-marital counseling wouldn’t be helpful for us, but we really enjoyed our time with him the first time we met and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed the counseling and by the time we got to the wedding day, I felt like he knew us and it wasn’t some stranger marrying us. We’re lucky to have found Pastor Bob and I believe we will continue to seek his help and encouragement in the future to keep our marriage strong.”

We were coming from out of town to Florida to get married and found Pastor Bob through Wedding Wire. What an excellent find! From the beginning, he did everything he could to make our ceremony special and went above and beyond to make it just what we wanted. He even took us out on his personal boat the day before the wedding for some fishing and to get to know us better! He and his wife were so hospitable to us during the boat trip. The ceremony itself was truly special. Pastor Bob incorporated all of our “unique” elements perfectly. Though we only knew him for a brief time, he feels like an old friend. Pastor Bob is truly a joy to work with and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Pastor Bob is a delightful man! Joe and I were so blessed to have him perform our wedding ceremony. Every meeting with PB prior to the ceremony was fun, insightful and meaningful. He truly brought Christ and the meaning of true love to our ceremony. The vows and the message of our ceremony were perfect. His humorous touches made for an enjoyable wedding for all. I highly recommend Pastor Bob as an officiant, pastor and friend.
Pre-Marriage counseling was so key to developing our successful life together that we still thank pastor Bob for leading us through thought provoking questions. We were hesitant at first about sharing our stories with someone else, but Pastor Bob put us at ease. He made sure that those little details like finances, expectations, and different emotional needs were sorted through and understood. We genuinely enjoyed meeting every week, and can still put his sage advise to use. ~ Stephanie (married 4 yrs)
Our ceremony was so fun. Our wedding was one of the happiest days of our lives and Pastor Bob helped make that happen. His experience made planning the ceremony easy and he catered to our needs when we wanted a mix of traditional and non traditional. He let us plan out our ceremony and made it just how I had always dreamed. His chipper and humorous spirit kept the mood happy and light without sacrificing the solemnity of the vows we were taking. (Perfect for the stressed bride) I’m so glad we picked Bob Hovey to officiate!
We received our finalized marriage license in the mail yesterday. Thank you very much for doing us the honor of being our officiant. Every one who attended the wedding just raved about you. When we first met, I promised to send you some pictures for your website. Attached are a few photos. I made them a little smaller for easy e-mailing but if you need the larger files, just let me know.

Perfect Pastor for two wanna be comedians posted 10/15/2013
Pastor Bob was awesome. He helped us write our vows and customized the ceremony to what we wanted. He expressed that we could have it as religious or non-religious as we wished. He did not push us one way or the other and was SO MUCH FUN! He kept us smiling. Some of the descriptions I have heard from the guests were “The cool pastor”,”Very down to earth”, “So nice”, “Super funny”….we agree. Contact Pastor Bob to marry you for sure and if you are looking for premarital counseling (AKA Premarital Coaching) he is your man. We will be doing Post-marital coaching due to my now husbands work schedule not giving us time, but from others, I have heard it is priceless. Cannot wait! Thank you Pastor Bob for everything!!!
