Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely! Lenny and Kathy invited us into their home and made us feel super comfortable. They treated us like family and like we had known each other for years. Once we left their home we immediately knew we wanted him to perform our ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

in addition to being available anytime we needed him...Lenny played a small joke on us during the ceremony. When it was time for the oathing stone part, he brought in a massive stone that looked to weigh at least 50lbs! It was very humorous to everyone in attendance. We will be using the stone in the garden of out new home

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Fr. Lenny is very passionate for what he does. We told him what we wanted and he did everything we asked and more

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We had an amazing wedding day. We received numerous compliments on everything but by far the ceremony was the most memorable for our guests. Fr. Lenny made it so special and intimate. We couldn't of asked for anything more.

What else can we say? From the moment we 1st met Lenny and Kathy we knew our decision was made. He delivered everything he said he would. And now we have lifelong friends we are so thankful for

Great Wedding Ceremony!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, Father Lenny made us feel extremely comfortable. When we met with him twice before the wedding at his home, we were welcomed with opened arms. Father Lenny and his wife made us feel like we were part of their family as we sat and talked for hours with them. Rather than just focusing on the wedding, they really were interested in getting to know us as a couple. By the end of the first meeting, we felt like we were all friends.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He had a conversation with Courtney’s father just prior to the ceremony and added what her father shared into the Ceremony. It made for a very special moment.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He gave us options of different ceremonies (e.g., box ceremony, unity candle, etc) that we could pick from to personalize our wedding. He also spent a lot of time adding his own words into the Ceremony that were specific to us, making it OUR Ceremony and not some cookie cutter wedding.

Roman Catholic Priests will not allow ceremonies outside of the church. But we wanted to get married at our venue, as we believe God is with us wherever we gather. We began looking on line and found different pastors and retired priests that could perform the ceremony. We talked with many but kept looking until we came across Father Lenny’s bio. We thought he might be someone we would like to share our special day with us. When we met with him, we knew instantly that we absolutely wanted him to perform our ceremony. It was the best decision we could have even made.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our Guests Loved the ceremony. They really enjoyed the idea of the box ceremony which they had never heard of before. Although we had only met Father Lenny a few times before the wedding, he made others feel as if he had known us for years, by making his words about us so very personal.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Fr. Lenny made my Wife and very comfortable. He invited us to his house to meet his wife, and took the time to listen about our lives and stories we shared together. He also invited us into his life as well, telling us about himself and his wife. He also customize our ceremony around what we wanted, and also gave us back great feedback.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Best Wedding Ever!!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Getting married was a more nerve wracking experience than we expected, there is so much pressure as the ceremony begins, but with Fr. Lenny we felt so at ease and he made us laugh and relax and the crowd felt comfortable too. He really makes you feel moved and inspired and at ease as you stand up there in front of so many people. He and his wife are both incredible people, and we would not have our wedding without them!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We really had no idea what to expect from finding an Officiant, but meeting Fr. Lenny and his wife at their home, and getting to know them, and them getting to know us, meant a lot, and made us feel so much more comfortable. They really are fantastic people and once the ceremony started I was honestly relieved to see him standing beside my, now husband. He made us laugh and relax during the ceremony, it was just like having a dear friend marry us, and that in itself was truly unexpected.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He wrote the ceremony from scratch! He didn't read from a basic book, he sent us drafts so we could make sure the ceremony was just for us. He added things that mattered to us, such as a genuine thank you to our parents and letting us read our own vows but giving us an idea on how to actually write them, so one doesn't end up with a novel and the other, 4 words. He let us choose what we wanted to include in our ceremony and showed us all the options possible to really make it our own. One addition we made was doing the candle lighting ceremony. We are expecting and so thrilled to be so, and Fr. Lenny recommended adding a second candle to symbolize the new life we were carrying. It was such a thoughtful and also unexpected idea that we loved!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

EVERY single guest commented on his ceremony, how beautiful it was and original and how truly personal it was. People loved our letterbox, which Fr. Lenny recommended after spending some time with us. Once he did, we were hooked. It was beautiful. All of our guests thought that Fr. Lenny was a friend of ours before our engagement, when we told them otherwise, they were stunned. We will be sure to be staying in touch for many years to come! We can't wait for him to come Bless our house and Baptize our new Baby!

Father Lenny is Awesome!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, Fr. Lenny made us feel extremely comfortable. He would answer our emails with any questions we had immediately. Lenny is extremely friendly and personable and we were so lucky he was available to do our wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He wore the whole priest get up, he made the initiative to meet with us for dinner so we could go over wedding details, and he mailed in our wedding license to the town hall for us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Lenny gave us suggestions as to different ideas we could do for our ceremony. We told him different ideas and within a few days he had our entire ceremony written for us and it was AMAZING!! He completely personalized our ceremony for us. He added our daughter and mothers into the ceremony, and incorporated some Irish heritage into our, as we are both Irish.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We were in awe over the ceremony and so was everyone else! The best comment from our guests was how beautiful and personalized our ceremony was. Everyone loved its uniqueness. I got multiple comments stating how it was the best ceremony people have ever seen.

He wrote our ceremony for us, based on how we both felt about each other. It made it feel more personable, like we had written it ourselves.

Father Lenny's Review

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny made us both feel very comfortable during the entire process from the first time we contacted him through our wedding day. He listened to what we wanted and changed our ceremony to what we desired. During the ceremony he would make us laugh and crack a joke when it was appropriate, yet be serious at the appropriate time.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Before the ceremony, he spoke with both of our parents together and added what they had spoke about, right into the ceremony. It was a very nice touch that was not expected. Both of our parents were surprised how he was able to work it in so smoothly.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Like stated above he was able to add things he spoke to our parents only moments before right into the ceremony and make it sound like it was always planned.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Guests thought he did a great job adding humor where appropriate. He made the ceremony relaxed and fun. Suzi's parents who are Catholic thought he did a great job bringing in the religious piece to a ceremony even outside the church. So many people commented on how they had never laughed so much and cried so much at the same time.

A Part of the Family

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable. He was able to read who was nervous and ease their worries. From the moment we met him, we knew he was for us. He is fun without taking away from the classy elegance of the event. I was so nervous that I would make a mistake or forget something. Once the ceremony started, I never had any fear.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Father Lenny wrote our vows for us and no one would have ever known. After inviting us to his home and spending over two hours (time flew by) talking and getting to know us, we went home and a few days letter he sent us our vows. They were perfect! We both teared up, separately, when we read them. They were everything we felt but had trouble putting into words. It truly sounded as though we were speaking.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Father Lenny gave us a few options for ceremonies. We decided on the wine box. We had never heard of this option before. Father Lenny found a way to include my Nana (the only living Grandparent) without it being too over the top, per her request. He suggested that Nana would hold the letters we wrote to each other for the wine box and present them during the ceremony. It was the perfect way to include her.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

The comment we heard over and over again, was how wonderful the ceremony was. That they had never been to a wedding where they felt the love in the room. Because of Father Lenny's words and kind soul, it felt like a spiritual moment that we all shared together. Everyone was in such a loving happy mood after. It was fun, not boring and cookie cutter.

The Best Officiant Ever !!!!!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

After meeting with Father Lenny and his wife, we had built a relationship with him, so during our ceremony, we would feel comfortable, which we did. We enjoyed Fr. Lenny and his wife so much, we invited them back to our after party. Fr. Lenny and his wife did accept our invitation and was also interested in talking with a family member who was struggling with a recent death.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I missed the detail of needing a big rock, for our Oathing Stone Ceremony. Father Lenny went to the beach across from the venue, and gathered us a rock. During the ceremony, he provided us a very large and heavy rock to hold, as a joke. It was very funny to us, and our guests. He also added to our ceremony, asking me, the bride, If I would "accept a child from god" This comment also made me laugh and in turn, made all the guests laugh due to my response to this question, because I am a 46 year old woman with a 20 year old daughter who I raised alone.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

By meeting with us ahead of time, we shared stories of our relationship and Father Lenny has a very good insight on reading people. We trusted him to write our vows, and he did it perfectly.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Many guests commented how down to earth Father Lenny was. One guest did say it was the best ceremony he has ever witnessed. And he had seen many denomination weddings, and Father Lenny's was by far the best EVER!!!.

Father Lenny Made Our Special Day So Special

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

From the moment we met Father Lenny he made us feel like we were family. He listened intently to us and our stories, he asked thoughtful questions, he offered support and guidance, and he incorporated our discussions into our wedding ceremony. We met with Father Lenny multiple times before our wedding, and by the day of our wedding we felt like we had known him for years.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Father Lenny gave us a number of different options for our wedding ceremony. We wanted a traditional wedding that mirrored a Roman Catholic Mass, and we were able to do that but also incorporate a few features into the ceremony that made it even more special and personal. Father Lenny even wrote the entire ceremony first for us so that we had a starting point to work from. That was a huge help.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

In short, Father Lenny listened to us when we told him what was important to us and he assured us that we could make our wedding ceremony our own. When we developed a ceremony that was perfect for our day, Father Lenny was happy to oblige and he performed our ceremony with enthusiasm and a perfect balance of solemnity and humor.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Several guests told us that our wedding was “the best wedding [they] had ever been to.”

A Fantastic Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny made us feel very comfortable on our wedding day by helping us to focus on each other. After planning a wedding for numerous months so that your guests will have a great time, it is easy to keep in that groove. Father Lenny helped up change gears and focus on us.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Father Lenny had numerous options that he could add to the ceremony that would make it special such as unity candles, sand ceremony, rose presentations. It was unexpected that he could offer so many custom options to make the ceremony special.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Father Lenny understood that we were both Catholic and wanted our ceremony to follow that oath during the ceremony. We were blessed to have communion and the Lord's Prayer and a Gospel reading during our ceremony. Father Lenny also personalized our ceremony by first getting to know us and realizing that roses had been a symbol of our relationship from the start. By this understanding, he suggested the rose ceremony to be added. It was perfect.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

The guests loved the fact that although the ceremony mirrored that of a truncated traditional Catholic Mass that it was also very personal and reflected our own personalities.

Fr. Lenny wrote a Beautiful Ceremony just for us

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny made us feel very comfortable from the very beginning by welcoming us into his home and introducing us to his wife, Kathy. Whenever we needed him, he was a quick email away and he would always get back to us quickly, so we wouldn't have to worry for very long. Through a very stressful process of planning a wedding, I knew that I didn't have to worry about the ceremony; Father Lenny wrote it beautifully.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He made the day of the wedding more calm by adding some humor to the ceremony and continuing to tell us that everything was going to be fine and if something did go awry, we would be the only ones to know. That simple statement put my mind more at ease.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He took the time to get to know our relationship and our past. He included my father, who is no longer with us in the ceremony which made it even more special to me.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We were told by many people that it was the best ceremony that they had been to in a very long time. The length of the ceremony was perfect and kept everyone's attention including the children that we had in attendance.

Fr. Lenny Absolutely made us feel comfortable from the start. Two visits to his home helped to just smooth out any stress we were feeling. He listened to what we wanted and

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He made a couple of off the cuff remarks that were funny and appropriate and served to calm both of us and also to entertain our guests.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He allowed us to choose all of the readings from any religion or other source. That wouldn't have happened elsewhere. Additionally, as guests were arriving

special ceremony for all.

Our wedding made special with Fr. Lenny

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely, Fr. Lenny made our wedding day complete. He is such a wonderful person and he brings so much more fun and excitement to a wedding. We could not have picked anyone else to marry us, we couldn’t be happier. We were a little hesitant at first because we didn’t know what to expect out of going to meet with him and his wonderful wife Kathy but before we even left his house that afternoon we knew he was the perfect fit in our wedding. So many people at our wedding said how wonderful of a job he did and they have never laughed and cried so much. Ft. Lenny was a perfect fit for our wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He made us laugh during the ceremony and that’s what we wanted, it could not have been written any better way. We wanted everyone to enjoy sitting through a ceremony and not be bored and he definitely pulled it off. He even told us that the reason the ceremony is going to be 22 minutes is because of that’s the span of how long sitcoms are and that’s all people are used to sitting threw which we both thought was genius.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He wrote our entire ceremony; we wanted to personalize it a little bit here and there and we he wrote it so well the first time that we didn’t even have anything to change. We did a sand ceremony as well as the wine box ceremony and it was a lot of fun to add that stuff in there rather than just the same thing everyone else does.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We got so many compliments on our ceremony that it’s hard to just say one good thing. Probably the best comment was how everyone enjoyed the ceremony and that it spoke to who we are as a couple. Fr. Lenny had our guests laughing and crying all in the span of the ceremony of 22 minutes. We were told by all our guests that it was the best wedding that they have ever been too and we have a lot to thank Fr. Lenny for. He was the start of our wedding, without a good ceremony you couldn’t have a good reception. We couldn’t be happier with the way the ceremony was written.

There's NEVER a dull moment with Fr. Lenny

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes he was very approachable when we first met him and since I planned our wedding from abroad, we exchanged emails a lot and he answered all my concerns and questions regarding the ceremony. When we did finally meet him for the first time in person, he was very kind and funny and had a lot of interesting stories. There wasn't a dull moment with Fr. Lenny.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

At first I didn't expect that he wanted to meet us in person, before the wedding, to get to know us on a more personal level. That broke the ice and it wasn't so awkward on the day of the wedding. Because of this, he got to know us a little more, so during the ceremony we had a little inside joke. That was very meaningful to us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Since he met us before the wedding and got to know us a bit more. He even used our nicknames (that only family members would know) to make it more personal.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

OMG, Yes they enjoyed the ceremony. It was just right, very straight to the point but still connected to the Catholic tradition. The readings were beautiful and the short homily that Fr. Lenny told everyone about marriage. It was very inspiring.

Father Lenny felt almost like part of the family

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny made all of us feel comfortable by keeping the mood light and keeping us laughing. He calmed our nerves by talking to Tim and I both separately before the ceremony as well. We also met with him and his wife for dinner when we were in town prior to the wedding and Father Lenny kept in touch with us after that via email. Even coordinating a wedding from out of state, Father Lenny still felt almost like part of the family the day of the wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Father Lenny made jokes that kept the mood light and make us all feel comfortable. He also wrote a beautiful ceremony and let us review in advance.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Father Lenny presented us with all kinds of different traditions and options to make our ceremony unique. He was also willing to meet with us as a couple to get a feel for how we really are as a couple before writing the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect and truly captured who we are as a couple. We really felt comfortable with Father Lenny and would highly recommend him to any couples looking to be married.

Several guests remarked that is was the most original and personal ceremony they had ever attended. They all said they enjoyed it immensely and were really "wow"ed by some of the different traditions we incorporated.

Rahim & Shantelle - Fr. Lenny was AWESOME!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny had married my Dad & Step Mom a few months earlier in such a Beautiful ceremony, we wanted him to write and perform ours as well. He made us feel very comfortable, like a confident friend helping you throughout the process. He tells jokes to lighten the mood as well as gives you sound advice when in need.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He wrote our entire ceremony based on meeting us a couple of times and did a very stand-up job. He also made a funny joke at the beginning of the ceremony to get everyone more comfortable. He also introduced us to different ceremonies to which we used during our ceremonies. He also did an excellent job of combining both our cultures, religions and ceremonies to make a fluid ceremony.

BEST WEDDING EVER

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

His professionalism and confidence in a successful ceremony made us both feel comfortable that things would go smoothly, despite our nerves.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I (Michael) had forgotten to bring my letter to my future wife that was supposed to be part of our "letter box ceremony". Once I realized this, I had called my fiancée about it (who was with Fr. Lenny) and Lenny simply told me not to worry about it since we could just "fake it", as my fiancée and myself were the only two who knew about this problem. This took a potential disaster (in my eyes at least) and fixed it in a simple, yet unexpected way.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He met with us twice before the wedding to get to know us better and wrote the first draft of our vows. He had come to know us well enough that we only needed to make minor edits to the vows he had written. He also suggested the unity sand and letter box elements, both of which we were unfamiliar with but ended up using.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Many of our guests commented that this was one of the best weddings they had been to. They were both impressed by the various elements within the ceremony; the multiple portions and different individuals involved made the ceremony more engaging, and less like other boring weddings our guests had been to in the past.

Exceptional !!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny took the time to get to know us via "facetime" (because we live in Houston and the ceremony was in Newport, RI.) When we were able to meet personally with him and his wife, Kathy, we found them to be extremely personable and likeable. They asked us many questions about our relationship so they could get to know us on a personal basis and that came across at the ceremony. They were also fun to talk with.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Father Lenny gave us a detailed program of how the ceremony would be so there were not any "surprises". Everything went PERFECT!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He used our nicknames for each other in part of the ceremony, names we had only mentioned to him ONCE. It was a nice surprise and the guests loved it.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our guest enjoyed the different kinds of "ceremonies" within the main ceremony (ie. ribbon, letterbox, and a little history associated with each "ceremony". Father Lenny encouraged us to write our own vows which our guest found to be exceptional. Everyone loved the ceremony and found in unique and tailored to us.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, very much so. Father Lenny and Kathy (his wife) invited us into their home for our first meeting. They asked lots of questions about us to get to know us, and shared lots of information about themselves to help us feel comfortable. We also trusted and appreciated that the appropriate paperwork would be filed and getting the marriage license was so simple because of this - was not something else to add to the list for us to worry about

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We can't really think of anything that was totally unexpected. We reviewed the ceremony with Father Lenny a number of times and felt very comfortable with the flow of events for the day and for that we are thankful.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He took information from the questions he asked at the initial meeting and incorporated the answers into the ceremony. He also shared all of the different ideas for the ceremony so we could select the ones that were most meaningful to us, so that we were able to help personalize the ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our guests really enjoyed our ceremony. It was unique to US. The way the venue had it set up inside in front of the fireplace and with drape around the seating, made it very intimate - we did not end up using the microphone it was so intimate. Everyone told us that their favorite part of the ceremony was the vows that we wrote and read to each other. And they loved that the ceremony hade much more humor then expected, which was refreshing and kept us from being nervous.

Rev. Fr. Lenny was amazing and made us both feel very comfortable that everything was going to be okay. He knew how nervous I was and he helped by making me laugh, my favorite way to cope.

Rev. Fr. Lenny added a lot of humor and love and brought everyone together on a joyous occasion.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Rev. Fr. Lenny met with us and took our personalities and stories seriously and then wrote a ceremony that would suit us. The reason I loved working with him besides that though, is because when I wanted to make changes to make the ceremony more "traditional" he didn't take offense, but adjusted it again to help me make it the way I wanted. <3

Dave and I were comfortable working with Fr. Lenny from the first communication we had. He was always professional and yet made us feel loved and cared about. Fr.

Beautiful Ceremony by an Amazing Officiant

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely! The first time we had met Father Lenny, it was as though we had known him forever. He invited us to his home and took the time to connect with us and learn about our relationship. Our one hour consult turned into 3 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. We felt very relaxed as we talked with him and his wife Kathy about everything – how we met, how he proposed, our families and our wishes for the wedding ceremony. He took notes throughout our meeting and later used those notes to write a personalized ceremony for us. It was wonderful! Father Lenny took great care of our special requests and made himself available to us 24/7. He always made us feel comfortable and put the stresses of wedding planning at ease.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We live in South Carolina so when we chose our wedding officiant we had to choose someone we could rely on that would learn our personalities and our sense of style from such a far distance away from one another. Father Lenny and his wife Kathy made time for us and got together with us every chance I could get home to MA. He would invite me to his home and what was supposed to be a 30 minute stay would turn into 2 hours because him and Kathy were so easy to talk to. They both are some of the sweetest people I know

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

There is not much I didn’t expect from Father Lenny, I did a lot of research prior to hiring him and saw nothing but great reviews. Father Lenny did add two things to my wedding that were unexpected though, 1) His wife Kathy who I adore. She made it so easy to open up to in such a short time. She has seen many weddings of Father Lenny’s and she was still so excited to see my ring and hear about my proposal like it was the first wedding she had ever been to. 2) His time, reliability and efforts throughout the wedding planning and the wedding itself. He went through some hard times with his family throughout the wedding planning and was so easy to stay in touch with even though he was busy with his own life. He was also in a lot of pain during the wedding as he was having some physical issues that he had to have surgery for a couple days after the wedding. He did not want to bother us with it or make us worry about it so we did not know about any of this pain until after the wedding was over. Most of the world would have cancelled or found a replacement to do the wedding but even though it hurt him to even stand, he did it! He was a trooper!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Fr. Lenny did a lot to personalize our wedding. He got to know us in the days leading up to the wedding. He got to know our families as well so when the ceremony was actually happening his words were personal, he joked around with us because he knows we are humored people. He said things and did things that people that are close to us would say and do to us. He didn’t feel like a stranger marrying us, he felt like a friend marrying us.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Father Lenny told us about a love letter box that we ended up incorporating into the ceremony. I’ve gotten a lot of comments about how great that idea was. A few people want to do it during their next anniversary and not open it up till 10 years later. We also had a lot of comments about how much fun we looked like we were having up at the alter. Our guests said it looks like we were laughing and having a great time as most wedding they attend the bride and groom look like they are bored and the ceremony is dull. Ours was a BLAST! Thanks Father Lenny!

Huey Lewis, The Beatles and Fr. Lenny!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

He definitely did! Fr. Lenny spoke with Andrew before the ceremony and certainly helped him relax. The great thing was we stayed in touch with Fr. Lenny regarding the ceremony so we both knew ahead of time what to expect and made both of us a bit more relaxed. His overall persona helped lighten the mood and made for an amazing ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Just the fact that Fr. Lenny was in constant contact with us regarding the ceremony. Following our meeting with him and Kathy, Fr. Lenny would send emails to check in and see how planning was going. Just think that nowadays, couples don't get that personal attention and we felt like we did!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Again, after the meeting with Fr. Lenny and Kathy, he sent us a draft of the ceremony. The fact that Fr. Lenny allowed us to control how the ceremony would go, was fantastic!

That it was a typical ceremony. From the guys on guitar playing Huey Lewis and the Beatles to Fr. Lenny's easy going attitude, just made for a unique ceremony and perfect day for us. Thank you Fr. Lenny!

A ceremony that reflected us perfectly!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Father Lenny and his gracious wife, Kathy, are two of the nicest people that I have ever met. I felt completely comfortable with them and look forward to many more years of friendship.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

A fabulous and unexpected service that Father Lenny offered was that his ceremony would be custom written for us. The ceremony and vows truly captured our spirit and our essence as a couple and on the day of the wedding, all of our guests were as moved as we were.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Our ceremony was personalized with a suggestion that Father Lenny made, which was to have a love letter ceremony during the wedding. This was a love letter that my now husband and I wrote to each other the evening before our wedding which is intented to be opened on our 10 year anniversary. This letter is to remind us and help us celebrate the excitement that we felt the evening before our marriage.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our guests enjoyed hearing our vows, which were written by Father Lenny, and the intimate tone that the wedding had. He spoke to us and our guests with a wonderful familiarity. Some of our vows included, "I promise to Love you, get you floor tickets to the Celtics, and take you to Red Sox games. And win or lose, I will always be there, by your side." This vow got a laugh, but truly captured who we are as a couple and had a lot of meaning for us.

He did not add anything really, because he had already prepared our ceremony two months in advance and we reviewed the text and gave him our approval. I must say, Father Lenny did an amazing job.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes - We first met on August 21, 2010 to meet each other and to discuss the ceremony. We met for about 5 hours. The time just flew by and had a great time. Father Lenny was able to give us some ideas for the ceremony based on what we wanted to experience. We also kept in touch regularly and discussed the ceremony on a weekly basis.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He wrote up the ceremony and added a couple parts (Intentions, Invoking the 4 Elements, Rose Ceremony) that truly added to the ceremony in a way that really made it unique to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony and were blown away at the time he put in to creating it for us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

What was most amazing was how he really wanted to get to know us and create a new and unique ceremony that we could remember for the rest of our lives. It really made the ceremony stand out for us, because it was so unique compared to what we have ever seen at other weddings.

Rev. Lenny Saved our Wedding!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Actually another Priest was schedule to perform our ceremony. It was a concelebration with a Jewish Rabbi in a 50 minute ceremony. The night before our wedding, the Priest became very ill & told us he couldn't do the wedding. We didn't know what to do. A friend suggested Reverend Lenny. We called him at 11:00pm for a wedding the next day at 1:00pm and asked if he could help. He told us not to worry, that he would change his schedule around, so that he could be there for us. He saved our Wedding Day.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The original Priest emailed Rev. Lenny the entire 11 page ceremony at Midnight. Rev. Lenny called us in the morning & asked us if we needed anything; then called the Rabby asking if she needed he to do anything special. She did! He arrived at the facility several hours early to go over everything and make sure it went perfect. It was a complex Jewish/Catholic Service/Ceremony and it went flawlessly. We were so happy with everything and the way it turned out. He even had us laughing before the ceremony which helped us relax.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Nothing, it was all taken care of.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

They couldn't believe how perfect it went given all the problems the day before & they all loved Rev. Lenny. He did such an amazing job on such short notice and reassured everyone involved that it would be fine & it was. Thank You!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We meet him adn his home and immediatly felt comfortable. We didn't expect a Reverend who was funny and put us at ease. Since we were both Budhist and Catholic, he added both into the ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The ceremony was beautiful. He wrote it just for us and it was unlike any we had ever seen or been to. He even wrote our vows for us and it was as if we had written them for ourselves.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Nothing.

Fr. Lenny met with us well before the event at his home. He welcomed us in to his home and went over our requirements for the ceremony. He then developed a personalized ceremony for us. It was wonderful.

We decided to have Fr. Lenny write our vows for us. The vows he wrote were so beautiful.

Fr. Lenny also did the blessing at our reception, and wrote a personalized blessing for us. It was very touching, we greatly appreciated the personal touch.

Amazing, friendly, one-of-a-kind

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Due to unforseen circumstances we were transferred around between a few different officiants throughout our planning process (this had nothing to do with Father Lenny or his organization!) Within the last months of planning we were put in touch with Father Lenny and it was such a blessing. We met Father Lenny at his home with his wife. We sat on the couch to just talk first--get to know each other. Next thing I know over an hour has passed and I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. He and his wife Kathy are so personable. They don't pressure religion and their own personal views on you. They are there to help you to make your ceremony your own. The best part about Father Lenny & Kathy is that they are there for you--they understand how important your wedding day is and have some great advice on how to just relax, take in the day, and make sure your wedding is exactly what you want.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Neither my husband nor I are super religious and we told this to Father Lenny. He was able to put religion into our ceremony in a way that was both appropriate for us and for our guests. Also, the entire ceremony was custom-made and had such a beautiful flow to it.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

I came with a bunch of excerpts I was given by a prior officiant I worked with and Father Lenny worked with me to put together bits and pieces of ones we liked and made it our own. I think what worked out best was when we met Father Lenny & he spent time to get to know us--this way he had a general understanding of our personalities and preferences.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

They LOVED it--we also asked Father Lenny to give the blessing at dinner (which had some perfectly funny moments!!) and stay for the meal with his wife. Our family members that sat with him talked of how much they enjoyed meeting them and how they, too, felt like they had known them for years.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We met the officiant at his home and he welcomed us and was very friendly. He shared some of his personal life experiences and got to know us well. From that Fr. Lenny wrote out the ceremony in a way that was right for us.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He added a little sense of humor so it was less nerve wrecking.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

I wrote my own vows I guess that made it more personalized and Fr. Lenny personalized my husband's vows since he didn't write his own.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My guests' loved the entire ceremony. It was all beautiful and emotional and we couldn't have done it without Fr. Lenny.

Father Lenny was GREAT!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I first saw Father Lenny when he officiated my friend's wedding. The ceremony was so heart-felt and warm, my then-fiance, now-husband and I knew right away we wanted him for our wedding 2 months later. He met with us for 3 hours to get to know us. Then he wrote the entire ceremony based on us. He doesn't just have a generic ceremony. he writes every one for each wedding. That personal touch made our wedding unforgettable! He was always in touch with us. He emailed us the ceremony once he was done with it and asked how/what if anything we wanted changed. After just a few same changes, we had our perfect wedding ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

By the time we were at the ceremony and getting married, we both felt so comfortable with him. It was easy and took a ton of pressure off both my husband and me. It was an enjoyable time.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

As I said before, the entire ceremony is a completely personalized one. So the entire ceremony was perfect for us, because it was written just for us.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone loved the ceremony! It was said many times that ours was the "best wedding I've ever been to."

Rev. Lenny was the best choice we could have made!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Everything. He made us feel comfortable from the first time we met and wrote a very special ceremony, just for us. The wedding day can be very stressful, but Rev. Lenny made us laugh and kept us relaxed all thru the ceremony. He was great!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Humor. He kept everyone at ease and after the ceremony, gave us a Decorative Certificate, a copy of the Ceremony on special paper and a couple other things. He also has been there for us after the wedding. He told us he would be there for us for whatever we needed (forever) and most importantly, he has been!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Just input. Rev. Lenny writes every ceremony specifically to the personality of the couple, so ours was different than any we had ever seen. He made us a part of the process and allowed us to have a much or as little input as we wanted. It was AWESOME!!! He also put as much or as little Religion as we wanted to satisfy our families.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

They couldn't stop talking about it! We had so many people tell us how much they loved teh ceremony & how unique it was. We had several of our friends ask if we minded ir he did their weddings & we gave them his number. Since then he has married 5 of out friends, all with different ceremonies & we went to all of them.
