I will start this review by saying that my husband and I are not religious people, nor was it important to us to have a religious ceremony. It was, however, important to our parents. This made finding an officiant rather challenging because we wanted to respect our parents’ wishes while also remaining authentic to who we are as a couple and as individuals.
Reverend Don nailed it.
From our first meeting, we felt heard and understood. Because he has been performing weddings for decades, we were certainly not his first couple in this particular position. In fact, his experience allowed him to propose a variety of different ceremony options and outlines that satisfied our parents without feeling disingenuous to ourselves. Together, the three of us created a completely customized ceremony that was absolutely perfect.
Reverend Don was also a constant professional. As the wedding day came closer, he remained acutely aware of the various other wedding-related tasks the bride would need to handle, and as a result had our ceremony drafted and finalized almost a month in advance. In a time where almost everything is left to the last minute, it was a blessing to have one less thing to worry about.
It’s also worth noting that Reverend Don does not charge extra to attend the rehearsal. Some officiants charge an extra fee because in their minds “it’s not a ceremony rehearsal,” however looking back, I can’t imagine having our wedding rehearsal without the officiant present. He guided us and our wedding party on our wedding day, made sure we stood and paused for the perfect photo when needed, and served as a calming presence on both the rehearsal as well as the wedding ceremony. I can’t imagine what a mess our wedding would have been had he not walked us through it the day before!
Finally, and most surprising to us, is what a difference his presence made to our guests. During our reception, we had a dozen of our friends and family members come up to us to comment on what a wonderful job Reverend Don did. I always thought the officiant was something personal to the couple, however so many of our guests told us how personable he was, how they could tell the ceremony was made specifically for us (instead of a cookie-cutter Google ceremony), and how included they felt in our wedding. It was truly the most amazing and unexpected compliment.
We can’t recommend Reverend Don enough!!
All my husband, Bryan, and I can say about Rev. Don is how WONDERFUL he is! He played a major role in making our wedding day as intimate and as special as it was. Our ceremony felt as though we wrote it ourselves…we were going to write our own vows but ended up choosing the ones that Rev. Don had. From beginning to end our wedding day was truly magical but there is something about our ceremony that I will just never forget. Thank you, Rev. Don, for your personal touches, your warmth, and for joining our hands in marriage. We would hire you a thousand times over! Brides – you will not go wrong working with Rev. Don. Promise! He has touched out hearts forever.
I highly recommend Rev. Don if you are seeking an officiant. He is so professional, extremely organized, so friendly, and overall the best professional officiant we could have found. It’s an easy, simple process if you go with him.
Rev Morphis was amazing! SO nice, our families loved him and he took care of everything. He was what made the day so much easier. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!
Rev. Don was so amazing. We are so grateful that we found him. He helped us through every step of the ceremony and even gave us guidance when writing our vows. He went above and beyond to ensure our ceremony was perfect and that it represented both my husband and I. The personal touches meant a lot to both of us. I can’t say enough great things about how special he made our day. Thank you!
Don was nothing short of amazing! He is SO personable with all of his couples, which is very important! He makes you feel like he’s known you his entire life and makes you feel so comfortable the day of! 10/10 recommend him!
Rev. Don was amazing. From the moment we meet I knew he was hired. We talked for 2 hours as if you were old friends. He was very flexible, truly letting us write our own script even including a surprise message from my sister who was unable to attend. Several guest comment on what natural fit he was for us.
We hired Don last minute for our wedding in Sep and he delivered! Every interaction with Rev Don made us feel so warm and welcomed. Arrived promptly and created an atmosphere in our ceremony that made you just smile the whole way through! He knows how to read the room! We’d recommend Rev Don to everyone we know!
Rev. Don performed a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. He made us feel so comfortable which was important to us and made the ceremony personal. I would definitely recommend Rev. Don!!
We actually ran into the Reverend Don by accident. We took his card, and then through the process of elimination, we came to choose him. He worked with us on a customized format, and in a very short period of time. Our only witnesses were our parents, and all four of them were very happy with our beautiful, little, intimate wedding service.
Don, was everything we could hope for. In this crazy time of COVID-19, he was perfectly flexible and easy going. He did exactly what we asked and was very reasonable. I’d highly recommend him to anyone.
him to officiate at your wedding!
My husband Rob and I had the pleasure of meeting Rev. Don last year and he was the officiant for our Sep. 5th wedding. Planning a wedding during a pandemic was stressful to say the least, but Rev. Don was extremely supportive and available throughout this entire process. We changed our ceremony outline at least 4 times and he never bat an eye. We met in person twice and spoke several times via email. During all of these meetings he was supportive, calm and let me know exactly what needed to be done. Rev. Don is prompt, organized, and led me through the entire process from obtaining our marriage license to the wedding ceremony. We’re still getting compliments about our wonderful officiant! You won’t go wrong if you have Rev. Don by your side on your big day.
Reverend Don was incredible. He really held our hands through the whole process of creating the perfect ceremony, and we’re so grateful to him for being such an integral part of our special day.
Don was such a pleasure to work with ! He was flexible as we tried to figure out dates for our mini ceremony and postponement. He was so friendly and kind! He makes it seems like he has known you for years. Highly recommend using don for your wedding!
Don was the perfect choice to be our officiant. He’s so easy to talk to and so wise. We started to consider him a friend and mentor and plan to keep in touch as our marriage/family grows.
him to officiate at your wedding!
Reverend Don is a fantastic officiant. He was one of the most flexible vendors we worked with during COVID 19, and he hung in there with us even after we had to change locations and had a lot of uncertainty. His approach was simple – just let him know where to be, and he’d be pleased to marry us. We were so grateful for that kindness during this time. He is also flexible by nature – he truly let us customize our whole ceremony. Despite all the input he let us have, on the day-of, he was prepared and owned every part of the ceremony as if we hadn’t had any input. I couldn’t recommend him more!
Rev. Don was professional and caring as he thoughtfully guided us in preparing for our ceremony. His passion for the sanctity of marriage came through in all aspects of his delivery of our ceremony. His pleasant demeanor, posture, and confidence made our wedding a beautiful event. We had lots of compliments from our guests! Our family and friends stopped worrying about COVID-19 and enjoyed our beautiful ceremony. His wife accompanied him and their love was a wonderful example for all! We highly recommend
him to officiate at your wedding!
Reverend Morphis was a delight to work with. He was incredibly kind and took the time to get to know my husband and I, as well as to share about his own life. He recognizes the importance of feeling comfortable with your officiant. In creating a ceremony outline, he provided us a series of examples which made it easy for us to have a starting point to pull from and then add in our own personal messages and style. He worked to give us exactly what we were looking for. We got married during COVID19 and Reverend Morphis was incredibly understanding and flexible with us throughout. The ceremony was beautiful, meaningful, short (our preference), and sweet. He and his wife guided us throughout and made the process simple and wonderful. We are so thankful that we worked with Reverend Morphis. He is a good man and helped make our day special.
Rev. Don was a perfect choice for our wedding!! We met with him before Covid19 and he was supportive and responsive during the uncertainty of being able to keep our wedding date and locating due to the pandemic. Although our wedding wasn’t what we originally planned, Rev. Don made the ceremony personal, reverent, loving and perfect for my husband and me. He genuinely cared for us as couple and strived, with great success, to make our ceremony exactly what we envisioned. I would recommend Rev. Don with 100% confidence for your wedding day!!
Reverend Don is absolutely amazing!! He is so professional and wonderful to work with! From the first time we met him, when we were planning our 300 person wedding, all the way through our drastic change of plans, he was extremely supportive and compassionate. When the pandemic hit, we were afraid we would have to cancel our wedding completely. However, we were so ready to be married and decided to go through with a very small ceremony consisting only of our immediate families. I would have expected most people to no longer be comfortable with this, but Rev. Don was ready and willing to get us married!! He truly went above and beyond! We sent a video of our ceremony to family and friends and I received so many comments on how beautiful it was! We are forever grateful that Rev. Don was our officiant and we truly can not recommend him enough!! He laughed and cried with us, and we feel so blessed that he came into our lives. He will help to make your day so special, whether there are hundreds of guests or ten. He is FANTASTIC!!
We originally had a 100 person wedding planned on march 28th, mid pandemic. In a matter of one week, we dropped to 50 people, then had to change to a different venue, then had to switch to an elopement in our yard and then finally NC gave us 24 hours before 30+ shelter in place and we had to move to a Wednesday elopement. Don was with us through all the crazy and way more accommodating than we could have ever hoped. As you imagine, it was a very tough couple of weeks, but having someone like Don on our side made it easier. He truly care and will do everything he can to make the day special.
Reverend Don was wonderful to work with. He is attentive, responsive and helpful, every step of the way.
Don did a great job at our wedding! He was very easy and professional to work with. He worked with me to create our perfect ceremony script and was very accommodating of all our requests. I would recommend Don to any couple looking for an officiant. He is very respectful and truly wants to make his couples happy and fulfill their vision for their wedding day!
Rev Don is a very professional officiant. He was very easy to get in touch with and responded promptly when we emailed him. Rev Don was very respectful to us and our guests and was responsive to any personal changes we wanted to make to the ceremony. He is very easy going yet professional. Would highly recommend to anyone in the Charlotte area.
Simply Amazing! Rev. Don was an incredibly special part of our wedding day. From the moment my husband and I sat down with him for our first meeting- we knew he was a perfect fit. He was engaged, thorough and incredibly responsive and flexible. He helped us form our perfect ceremony from his expertise. He was so helpful during our rehearsal and added such a personal touch to our ceremony. We got endless compliments on our ceremony and how amazing he did engaging us and our family and friends. I could not recommend Rev Don any higher. If you have had the chance to meet him during your search for venders- stop here, you’ve struck gold! Will look forward to our relationship with him in the future!
Beautiful Ceremony! Reverend Don is patient and caring and did a wonderful job with our wedding. He helped with suggestions for writing the ceremony and was easy to work with. Guests commented on how much they enjoyed our ceremony and how smoothly it went – Thanks Reverend Don!
Don was the best wedding officiant! He was so kind and so helpful. Definitely book him for your wedding, you won’t regret it!
Rev. Don is amazing! My husband and I are not particularly religious, so we weren’t sure who would officiate our ceremony. We stumbled across Rev. Don on WeddingWire, and chose him after meeting with him once. He immediately made us feel so comfortable and it was clear that he is such a warm and caring person. We knew right away that he would be the perfect person to marry us! He helped us create our own ceremony by sending us sample ceremonies and suggesting different readings, etc. After we told him what we liked and didn’t like, he pieced it all together into the most beautiful ceremony for us! We wrote our own vows, and he printed those for us on note cards so we wouldn’t have to worry about forgetting them on our wedding day. Rev. Don really made our ceremony special, and we would highly recommend hiring him!
Amazing experience! Rev. Don was very professional and it seems like he has been performing wedding ceremonies a long time. Everything ran very smoothly and he helped guide us through the ceremony. I love his calming personality. Services were well worth the money.
Excellent officiant! Very professional, accommodating to our needs and requests, and personable. He kept us on track with the planning of our ceremony, which was just perfect. We highly recommend him! His wife is also very nice.
My husband and I were so happy with Reverend Don from the moment we met him! He was personable, knowledgeable, experienced, and open to any suggestions we had. We didn’t get married in a church so we didn’t have a standard sort of ceremony. Rev Don was really easy to work with and sent us a variety of example ceremonies to help us craft our own. He easily took our thoughts on the ceremony and combined everything to make it exactly the way we wanted it. He was a complete professional at the ceremony and brought an energy to it that was special to us. Our ceremony was perfect and Rev Don was awesome to work with. We highly recommend Rev Don to anyone! Thank you Rev Don!
Helpful. Offers choices. Patient
What a wonderful Reverend! Rev. Don made our day so special. Guests could not stop talking about how wonderful he was. He made us feel so comfortable & we were very happy we chose him!
Reverend Don Morphis was awesome. He was available with a quick notice he communicated with us the whole time even on the day of. I really appreciate the kindness even the written note that he left for us. It will not be forgotten.
A Passionate Pastor! Don is personable, passionate and professional. These qualities made the planning and ceremony very intimate and special.
Rev Don was FANTASTIC! Great communication, personable, and most of all he makes you feel like you have known him all your life. During the ceremony, he was very helpful in guiding us from our wedding arbor to the unity table and back. I ended up tearing up quite more than I thought, and he had an extra handkerchief for me that he slipped to me.
Absolutely wonderful minister, no one else that I would use.
Rev. Don married us on 5/19/19 and we are SO grateful for him! He went above and beyond during the entire process, from our first meeting until the very end of our wedding. He made everything very easy for us and is very kind. His wife Donna is also a blessing! Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we have Rev. Don to thank for that. Many other things may go wrong during the wedding planning process or day, but hiring Rev. Don will be the best choice you could make and you will not regret it!
We couldn’t have asked for anything more with Don. From the second we met him, we knew he was the officiant we would be using. He never rushed us, and he always focused on the details. He wanted the day to be perfect, maybe more than we did! He will focus on every single detail, even the things you wouldn’t think about. Thank you Don!
It was such a pleasure to work with Rev Don! He was super easy to communicate with and always made himself readily available. Such a sweet man and incredible pastor! We had a guest pass out during our ceremony and he handled it so gracefully and was quick to calm my nerves. Would def recommend his service 1000%
Rev. Don was an outstanding officiant. We had some inclement weather the day of the ceremony and Rev Don made the experience remarkable and more intimate when it was decided to move inside. I would highly recommend him!
Having Rev. Don as the officiant for our wedding was a great experience. We met with him early on in the planning process and we had a great conversation with him about ourselves and the type of ceremony we wanted. Closer to the wedding date he had several samples for us to review and I told him which ones we preferred and he had our whole ceremony written up for us in a matter of days! He was open to any changes we made to it and was great about us writing our own vows – he even had our vows printed out on index cards for us to read from the day of the ceremony. He and his wife helped out during our rehearsal as well, and our families were raving about how kind they are. We definitely recommend Rev. Don for your wedding day!
This was such a heartfelt small wedding service on the lake but I wouldn’t have it any other way, as out pictures tell the story of our love and how special this was to us. Rev. Don made us smile and cry, as the words and joy he shared touched our hearts! Thank you so much…..
Don was perfect in every way for our service. Don was flexible and was so conscious of making sure we were comfortable. It can be a tricky proposition to go online and select a minister to conduct such an important occasion. In this case we made the perfect choice. Our highest recommendations go to anyone considering Reverend Morphis.
Rev. Don is FANTASTIC, I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing an officiant for their wedding ceremony. After only meeting us once, he made my husband and I feel like if we had known him for years. He worked with me for quite a few hours on the wording for our ceremony as well as which readings/scriptures were best to include. Thanks to Rev. Don, our wedding ceremony was exactly how we both had envisioned it. I had so many family members and friends come up to me after our ceremony raving about what a great job he had done, and how much they liked him. He takes the time and effort to make sure that your wedding will go exactly as you want it.
Rev. Morphis was so down to earth and loved the nice words during my wedding,I am glad I went with rev. Morphis
Rev. Don ensured our wedding was perfect – amazing attention to detail and was extremely professional and prepared. He’s the absolute best!!
Rev. Don was great to work with. His knowledge and expertise made our experience seamless! Thank you for your guidance.
Reverend Don Morphis is AMAZING! We decided to reach out after reading all his reviews on wedding wire. And I am so happy we did. From the moment we met Reverend Don we knew we had to have him officiate our wedding ceremony. Right from the start he was so friendly and motivated to make our wedding ceremony EXACTLY what we wanted. He explained he feels comfortable putting in the work to perform whatever religious ceremony we wanted to make our day perfect. At every step he was there for us. From always being timely responding, meeting as many times as I needed to feel comfortable with our ceremony and just overall being so organized with every detail of the wedding. At one point when I was super stressed trying to make our rough draft of our catholic-ish ceremony he took over and typed up exactly what I wanted. He researched my wedding party on our wedding website and when everyone met him the at the rehearsal they felt like he knew them. The ceremony went so smoothly and he even made a blessing before the meal. He made our day so perfect, I would recommended him to anyone getting married!!
He is wonderful!!! We spoke to Reverend Morphis on the phone for the first time and right away we knew that he was going to be the one to marry us. From the start, he was GREAT at communication and made us feel so comfortable. He responded to all of my questions within a day and always made time to meet up with us. Him and his wife came to Asheville, NC for our wedding weekend and everyone fell in love with them. They just give off that sweet, loving, honest vibe. And they are so experienced in weddings that they will help with other things as well! We’ve only known Reverend Morphis for less than a year, but we could tell he was speaking from his heart at our wedding. We had family and guests commenting on how awesome he was. We are truly so grateful that we found Reverend Morphis and we would recommend him to anyone!!
What a great officiant don was he is very organized very caring and loving more like family our wedding went very well I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.
Don Morhpis is an excellent officiant, I absolutely recommend him, he is very professional and makes your day very special. God Bless your Ministry Don Morhpis, Thank you for everything!
Don was excellent, and very easy to work with for our wedding. We would highly recommend working with Don if you have the opportunity.
Rev. Don was absolutely phenomenal to work with. He made our wedding so personal, many of my guest thought we had known him for years. From the first time we met, to the wedding Rev. Don was so easy to talk to and always responsive when we had any questions. Everything was meant for me and my husband, from the vows to the unity and prayer. If you are privileged enough to meet with and reserve rev. Don for your wedding, do it! He was one of the best decisions we made for that day and he made our day absolutely memorable! Thank you Rev. Don for coming out in the hurricane and making our day perfect!
Rev. Don was AMAZING!!! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better !! He made us feel very comfortable during the entire process!! We met before to collaborate on vows and he helped us make them truly personal and fitting for us! From the moment I met reverend Don I knew he was who I wanted to marry us! Very personable, understanding, and extremely helpful! THANK YOU Rev. Don and Donna for making our special day incredible!!
Due to some last minute job changes my fiance and I had to move up our wedding date… The minister we had chosen wasn’t available, but he recommended Don.
Don was magnificent – he was easy to get in touch with, helpful and gracious. The ceremony went off without a trace and I never had a moment of doubt or hesitation that hiring Don was the right choice.
All we have been talking about is our wedding ceremony…. It was so special and beautiful. Thank you for being open and doing the research for implementing our request for unity rope, coins and bible. You were a huge part of making our day special. Thank you!!
Reverend Morphis performed my daughter’s wedding this past weekend and I cannot say enough good things about him or his lovely wife. He was charming, professional, and funny. He put my daughter at ease and had her smiling and laughing through her nerves. He was fantastic and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a special person to officiate their ceremony.
Don was an amazing officiant and we would strongly recommend him. He truly cares about what he does and that shows in all aspects of his approach. He’s friendly, professional and will tailor the experience to meet your needs.
Don was great! He was very friendly and very clear in explaining what to expect from him and the ceremony. During the rehearsal, he was extremely helpful in organizing the logistics of who would be where, and the ceremony went exactly as planned. He also made sure we completed all the marriage license paperwork correctly.
Reverend Don came to me as a recommendation from a coworker who he married. After our introductory meeting, my fiancee and I knew that we wanted him as our officiant. Reverend Don is warm and friendly, and extremely professional. He is prompt, efficient, and organized. He explained the process to us, what we can expect him, and exactly what we will need to do. He gave us scripts to review and was very flexible with editing. When I asked Reverend Don how closely he sticks to the script, he said that he does not showboat and he does not ad-lib. As a bride, you already have a ton of things to think about, worrying about what your officiant is going to say shouldn’t be one of them. He’s absolutely right, and I greatly appreciated that. We did encounter a slight scheduling conflict, but because he told me far enough in advance that we had time to course-correct, it really became a non-issue. Thank you, Reverend Don!
Don was a wonderful officiant who provided exceptional service and was very considerate in answering our questions and guiding us through the ceremony. We contacted Don the week before the ceremony, and he was very flexible with the time and location. He was always there to pick up our calls and answer our questions. Once he arrived, he was extremely respectful toward the cultural differences and preferences that made our wedding ceremony unique. Don has also put in great amounts of effort in his speech during the ceremony, and it was his words of blessings that moved us. We strongly recommend Don to be the wedding officiant for other loving couples!
Rev. Morphis was so wonderful to us and conducted the most beautiful ceremony! We love and adore him!! So glad he was recommended to us! Not a dry eye in the ceremony!! Thank you Rev. Morphis!!
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant! Everything went smoothly and our ceremony was perfect!
Don is hands down the sweetest! We are so glad we chose him to go with him, he is very easy to talk to, Made us feel comfortable and did our ceremony exactly how we wanted with many ideas from him. We recommend him 110%. you wont regret it.
Don was amazingly helpful and professional throughout our entire interaction with him. He went above and beyond when necessary to make sure we had the perfect day. Thank you Don!
My son passed out in the middle of the service. Don could not have handled it better. We froze but he stepped right in! I was a great service!!!

Rev. Don Morphis was a dream come true in what we envisioned our ceremony to be. From our meeting prior to the wedding to the quick responses to our emails and the personalization to our ceremony, Rev Don Morphis was everything we were looking for. He is amazing at what he does and we definitely recommend his services. Thank you Rev Don Morphis for making our wedding ceremony perfect beyond words!

Great and speedy communication, very friendly. Courteous and professional and eager to help.

I am so thankful we found him and his sweet wife Donna to help us on our special day! If you are looking for an officiant contact Rev. Don, you will NOT be sorry!! He is simply the best.
You should select Don as your wedding officiate. He did an amazing job for us, meeting with us several times before the event, accommodating all of our requests without question, and giving us clear, simple instructions for each step in the process. He even had his wonderful wife Donna on hand to help out during the event. Save yourself much time and aggravation and go with Don. He’s a professional.
One of the best decisions we made throughout the wedding planning process was choosing Don to be our officiant. He made our wedding stress free and handled every detail perfectly. Don asked all the right questions and made sure that our wedding party knew what to do and when, even offering feedback from past experiences to ensure our ceremony went off without (or rather with) a hitch.
Rev Don was a delight to work with and made our wedding ceremony go so smooth. He and his wife Donna were very professional, yet personal. They really took the lead during our ceremony and helped to smooth out a few road bumps. I would highly recommend this wonderful man and his lovely wife!
Don is hands down the best wedding officiant you will find. He was absolutely amazing to work with and really made our wedding something special. I will for sure be recommending him to everyone I know!
Rev. Morphis was wonderful! My fiancé and I knew the first time we met him that we wanted him as our officiant. He was always there to answers questions and meet with us, even after we were married 🙂 Our wedding ceremony was exactly how I pictured it thanks to Rev. Morphis. I would highly recommend him!
We are so happy to have had Reverend Don as our officiant for our wedding day on 10.21.17! We were nervous about hiring an officiant that we had seen online, but when we met Don in person, we felt like we had known him forever. He is an extremely caring, passionate man who wants to make your day special and will cater to you in whatever way you need. Don was very attentive throughout the process as he regularly called and emailed with my husband and I to make sure everything was going smoothly. Our ceremony was so beautiful with lots of happy tears, and a large part of that is because of Reverend Don. Thank you so much!!
Rev. Don was fantastic and very easy to work with. We had a specific idea in mind for our ceremony and we worked with us to make sure we were happy with everything. Everyone at the ceremony was impressed with Rev. Don and only had wonderful things to say! Thank you!!
Rev Morphis is The Best! He’s the one you want on your “ Special Day”. He is so professional, kind and genuinely interested in you and your partner.
Don was awesome and even my guests raved about how well he did.
Don was absolutely wonderful to work with. He really got to know us as a couple and our ceremony was absolutely perfect! He was easy to reach and has a wonderful presence! All our wedding guests thought he knew us for years. We would highly recommend Don!
We are both living in Boston and Rev Don was so accommodating w trying to meet w us. The rehearsal was a bit of a circus bc a lot of people hadn’t seen each other in years and he handled them well and we all still had a blast. He was awesome! We got several compliments on him and his service!
Rev Don is wonderful. He made our special day, more special! Also when we moved to another state (6 hours away), he worked with us over Skype. This accommodation allowed us to continue with marriage counseling!
Excellent service from Reverend Don. We couldn’t have even more pleased with the ceremony.He did an outstanding job!
He was great throughout the entire process. Everything went perfectly on my wedding day and he was no exception! Clear, concise, and funny as well.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Rev. Don!! We planned our wedding from a distance (which can be very stressful at times) and every time we were in town and met with Don, we felt at ease, and he was always super responsive on emails. He 100% worked with us to cater the ceremony specifically to us which was our biggest thing. We got rave reviews from family and friends alike saying he made it fun and enjoyable, yet still super sweet and heartfelt at the same time!! A++++ across the board!
Rev Don Morphis was amazing and is the officiant you are looking for! From the first day we met him, we knew we wanted him to officiate the wedding. He met us over coffee at a local Starbuck we chose and was there early before we showed up well prepared with his notepad. We were super impressed with how he introduce himself and after speaking to him for about 30 minutes, it felt like we knew him for a long time. He explains how he handles the ceremony and what we expected for our ceremony. We didn’t have a wedding planner and Rev Don Morphis even offered to be our wedding coordinator and run the wedding rehearsal. Rev Morphis met us again the 2nd time a month before our wedding day and went thru our wedding vows. We noticed that he is very punctional and was there 30 minutes before our meeting. The wedding rehearsal, he was very detailed and thorough with us and the wedding party and instructing each one of us on what to do. He really has a vision on what we explained to him and he made it happen. He is also very patient and ran the rehearsal until we all got it and was comfortable with it. Like I mentioned before, he is very detailed and ask me what color my suit and tie is and he matched it on our wedding day. On our wedding date, Rev Don Morphis was at the venue early and even attended our Chinese tea ceremony before our wedding. He is very comforting and was very encouraging to the both of us as we were waiting for the time. Rev Don Morphis was perfect during the ceremony and has a natural loud voice that could be heard throughout the atrium. A lot of our guests mentioned to us how they loved our officiant and he conducted the ceremony. Rev Don Morphis was kind enough to join us during the reception and he interacted with our guests and a lot of our friends love how personal and funny he was. You won’t be disappointed in contacting Rev Don Morphis, he is everything we were looking for to lead our ceremony. He is with you from the very start to the end!
We were recently married by Don Morphis and we wanted to share our experience. We came across his website when we were looking for a Wedding Officiant. We had reached out to him by email and exchanged a few phone calls before our first meeting. When we did meet in person, he was kind and he had sense of humor that made us feel at ease. During the first meeting he spent time getting to know us, while sharing his previous experiences with us. After the meeting we knew he was the one that we wanted to perform our ceremony. We then meet with Don a second time to go over all the details of the ceremony. Don makes it easy to go through this process, he has samples of the ceremonies that you can choose from or you can mix and match to come up with the best ceremony that fits you as a couple. He then goes through the process explaining is going to happen and in what order. When the day finally came Don was earlier, he met with everyone before hand and it was like he was part of the family. He shared some stories with everyone and made sure that all details for the ceremony were covered. During the ceremony he added his personal touches and walked us through each step to make it a perfect day for us. He also joined us for the celebration after the ceremony. He was very professional and has many experiences with diversity, cutlers and beliefs. He is also very flexible, he can do the ceremony where ever you need and he makes sure that it fits you. These are the reasons that it was an easy choice to have him do our wedding. He is a caring person that wants to make your day special. He was not just our Officiant, he has become our friend. I would highly recommend Don if you are looking for a Wedding Officiant, he is professional and has the experience but also takes the time to get to know you so he personalize the ceremony to make your special day great.
He is amazing! My husband and I planned our wedding from out of town and found him on wedding wire. He gave us the best memory of our lives that we will cherish forever. The ceremony was hands-down everything we wanted and more.
Reverend Don was wonderful!
Reverend Don was extremely helpful while my Fiancé and I were planning our wedding. He was available to us as a couple for advice and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Ceremony. Thank you Reverend Don. 🙂
Rev. Don Morphis performed the most beautiful ceremony and we are so thankful for all of the hard work that he put into preparing. My husband and I were not the only one thrilled with how our ceremony went, but we received TONS of compliments about how beautiful the ceremony was and how great of a job Don did. All of my engaged friends said, “We want a ceremony just like yours.” And we have to give all the credit to Don for that! It was so nice to have such a calming, reassuring presence on what could easily be a very hectic and stressful day. Don’s wife Donna filled in for the rehearsal because Don had another wedding to officiate and it was seamless. Donna was absolute perfection and we felt confident that we were in great hands, even in Don’s absence.
My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Rev. Don Morphis. He is so personable that you feel like you’ve known him for years after talking to him for just a few minutes. He is very organized and plans every detail of the ceremony flawlessly. We had numerous relatives and friends comment on how much they enjoyed talking to him both before the ceremony and during the reception. We highly recommend Rev. Don to anyone looking for a minister for their wedding day!
Don was wonderful to work with from day one. He was always quick to respond to phone calls and emails, which isn’t always the case in the wedding industry. I felt it was important to him that he got to know us as people so that when we asked for guidance on including or excluding certain ‘traditional’ wedding things, he could help us make an informed decision we’d be happy with. He worked with me for weeks crafting a ceremony that fit our personality and wants perfectly, and on the day of our wedding delivered it in a beautiful, heartfelt way. The owner of our venue thought he was family! Don is a man of his word and was on time/where he said he would be for each step of our wedding, from planning visits and rehearsal to the wedding itself. His professionalism and genuine kindness were evident throughout our experience, and I would recommend him to anyone getting married!
When booking our officiant for our wedding, my now-husband and I felt a little lost. We don’t belong to a church, and our parents represent a variety of religions. Rev. Don was a great choice for us; he met with us multiple times before the wedding and wrote an amazing ceremony for us that respected our various religious backgrounds. We received so many compliments on what was said at our ceremony! We loved working with Don and would recommend him to any of our friends getting married in the Charlotte area.
I can’t even put into words how amazing Don is. I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. He is great at what he does and knows exactly what to do to make your wedding ceremony everything that you want and more! He goes above and beyond to make sure that the couple is happy. He is extremely accommodating and helps you every step of the way. He even helped coordinate our rehearsal which was a great help to us! I would recommend Don to anyone and for any type of ceremony. We are so thankful that we were able to book him for our wedding!
If we could rate Rev. Don higher than a 5 we would! We had previously met with another officiant before coming across Rev. Don, and I’m so happy that we were patient and kept looking. Rev. Don was so amazing. He worked with my husband and I to create the perfect ceremony, and everyone we spoke to said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. It is so evident in everything that Rev. Don does that he loves his work. Officiating weddings is clearly more than just a job to this man and I would recommend him a thousand times over to anyone looking for an officiant! You truly made our wedding so special and memorable for Connor and I, and I could never thank you enough for that!
Don was so professional and helped in more ways than I could imagine to make the day go perfectly. We met several times before the wedding and he really got to know us as a couple. Our ceremony was perfect and individualized. I could not be more happy with Don’s work. I would recommend him 100% to anyone! He tailors the experience to fit you and your style. When it’s over with you will feel like family!
Reverend Don was great! Totally personalized our ceremony and it was beautiful! He was helpful through the whole process.
Don was an amazing officiant! Met with us several times in person and was available for any other questions or advice as we were planning our ceremony. The service was spot on! He crafted the message in a meaningful way for us and everything was so smooth you would have thought we rehearsed everything several times (which we didn’t). Everyone commented how great he was. Personable, professional…We can’t say enough great things about him!
Personal and professional!! A joy to work with and great at listening at what the couple wants! Loved that he took the time to learn about us. The guests at our wedding raved about Rev. Don! He is simply AMAZING!
Rev. Don Morphis was GREAT! He was very professional, prompt, an a true blessing to our wedding. I can’t thank him enough for sharing in our special day. Would definitely recommend him to anyone planning a wedding.
He was amazing!! Thanks again for everything Don!
Rev. Don Morphis is absolutely amazing! He takes time to truly get to know all of the couples he works with and completely customizes each ceremony program to that couple’s needs. He made our day so special and unique. Our guests were complimenting Rev. Don all evening long, and continue to do so more than a month after the wedding. He is so warm and welcoming and keeps an open line of communication all through the planning process. I can’t recommend his services enough. I would give 10 stars if I could!
I was so happy and pleased with Rev.Don Morphis, Rev. Richard sears cancelled an hour away from the wedding but suggested Rev Don Morphis and all I want to say was he was on time and very nice, the sevice he provided was very professional and sweet, his words he said were so beautiful they brought tears to my eyes, he made our day very special, Thank you so much Rev. Don Morphis. For making our day very special.
He couldn’t have been any nicer and was extremely organized and through. He wowed our family during the ceremony and we received compliments at the end after he left about how great a job he did and how much his words touched everyone! I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Rev Don was awesome. He was so nice and so helpful during the rehearsal and the wedding. He was very knowledgeable and gave great advice for the ceremony. He replied to emails very quickly and was so easy to talk to.
The best decision you will make regarding your wedding! Pastor Don took care of EVERYTHING on his end which was a huge help for me because I had a million things going on! His wife was also a big help with the rehearsal and day of! Couldn’t have asked for a better person to marry us!
Reverend Morphis conducted a beautiful ceremony with many good words for thought as we embarked on our life together. He listened attentively to our plans for the wedding and crafted the perfect non-denominational sermon, respecting the varying religious views of the audience. As an outdoor, Fall ceremony in somewhat challenging weather conditions, he adapted well. He has a way of making a couple feel at ease during what can be a stressful time while focusing on what is really important – the institution of marriage under God and the importance of unconditional love to the success of the union. We would highly recommend Reverend Morphis to others contemplating a similar journey.
Rev. Don was a pleasure to work with to plan our ceremony and the flow of our wedding. He was accommodating to unique readings and unity ceremony ideas we had, while also offering up recommendations for additional readings, comments, and prayers that he thought would be meaningful. It was so easy to make sure our ceremony would flow just the way we wanted and I felt confident walking down the aisle knowing that he had everything under control and I could just enjoy the moment with my husband.
Rev. Don was nothing but amazing. I truly can not say enough good things! He made our ceremony personal and one of a kind.
Rev. Don was truly fantastic! The ceremony was exactly as we wanted and he had no problem making any kind of adjustments. We had so many people tell us what a wonderful job he did and how personable he was. I would highly recommend him for your wedding ceremony! Such a wonderful, genuine man.
Rev. Don Morphis is more than incredible and amazing. I have no idea what my husband and I would have done without him. He truly made our wedding day so special. Every detail was planned out to our specifications including a sand ceremony for the joining of our children. Rev. Don quickly became a part of the family and there was no one more perfect suited to officiate our perfect day. We love you! Janice and Brian Cumbie October 1, 2016
We found Reverend Don on Wedding Wire and could tell immediately when we met him that we wanted to use him as our officiant. Reverend Don made us feel extremely comfortable and is more than happy to tailor your ceremony to your wishes. We had many guests tells us what a wonderful man he is and what an absolutely beautiful ceremony he performed. He responds very quickly with emails and phone calls and we could not have been more happy with him!
Rev Don was the officiant for my wedding in November. Our ceremony was beautiful and everything we wanted and more. He really takes his time to put together a ceremony that fits the bride and groom and he absolutely has a gift for it. Rev Don is personable and easy to talk to. When I sat down with him to talk about my ceremony, he asked a lot of questions to get to know my fiance and I as a couple. I believe this helps him plan a ceremony that’s just for you. Our guests loved the ceremony and some said it’s the best they’ve seen. I would recommend him to anyone getting married. He is reasonably priced and does a wonderful job! You won’t regret it!
Any one getting married should really contact Don Morphis. He did a great job with our wedding. I wouldn”t have wanted anyone else. The wisdom he has and the service he gave was amazing. You couldn’t have a better preacher, or one that explains things any better than he does….He really cares and you can tell he loves what he does.
Reverend Don was amazing. From the beginning, he was conscientious of our ceremony requests while adding his own personal flare. He made us feel like family. During the ceremony he was so eloquent and trusting, making my husband and I feel comfortable during such an emotional time. We also got to have some fun up at the altar with Reverend Don. After the ceremony, all of our family and friends had the best things to say about Reverend Don.
My entire family was impressed with Rev. Don. They still talk about his words today! He blew us all away and was worth every penny and more!! I am so thankful I found him.
I am so thankful we used Rev. Morphis for our wedding! He was wonderful and made our ceremony so special and personal.
Rev. Morphis was absolutely amazing! We knew from the first time we met him that he was the perfect fit for our wedding. He took the time to get to us and our families before hand & really went out of his way to make our day special and unique. I never once felt like we were just another wedding or just another set of vows. He went over everything with us multiple times to make sure everything was exactly as we wanted! We are non-denominational & that was never an issue. He made sure we were comfortable with everything & respected us just as much as we respect him. Him and his wife attended our reception & were a hoot with the wedding party 😉 Thanks again Rev. Don for being a part of our special day and making it so special for us.
Will book him again.. Wait… Uh… He is great!!!
Rev. Morphis put together a wonderful ceremony. He’s experienced, knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. I absolutely cannot recommend him enough!
Don Morphis made our day extremely special. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a professional and personable officiant. I absolutely loved every part of the ceremony. Don Morphis made the process so easy and enjoyable. I couldn’t have found a more amazing man of God to officiate our ceremony! Thank you, Don Morphis!
My husband and I decided to have our wedding back home. We didn’t have a pastor, so we rolled the dice with Rev. Don. We couldn’t have been more lucky! Rev. Don was extremely communicative, detailed, and respectful. He thought of things that we never would have considered. He has years of experience in the church and with weddings, and it shows. My family and friends were coming to me afterwards speaking accolades. He got both of us down the aisle and lead our ceremony like a pro. He’s a counselor, officiant, wedding planner, and fire extinguisher. My husband and I both agree that this was one of the best decisions we ever made for our wedding.
Thank you Rev. Don! You really did make this ceremony one of the most enjoyable moments of our wedding and lives.
Reverend Morphis was such a blessing to our ceremony! He was fun and personable to meet and chat with prior to the wedding day. He really made a very BIG and unique impact on our wedding. During the rehearsal the night prior, my nerves and anxiety kicked in about walking down the aisle and even more so, standing at the altar in heels (I have a heart issue and vertigo so anxiety can make me pass out!) As i cried to him and close family members about the predicament, he simply said “well let’s sit down. If that is what makes you comfortable, we will sit down and act as though it was planned and all just have a little chat.” It was PERFECT! As I got to the altar, we exchanged a few vows and then he asked us to sit . . . . our bridal party had chairs waiting for us off to the side. The Rev, my husband and I sat and finished our vows and it was amazing! All of our guests loved it and commented on how cool it was, all without knowing that it was an effort to make sure I didn’t face plant during the ceremony. For that, I will FOREVER be grateful! Highly recommended!
Rev. Don was Absolutely wonderful!! He helped to make our Wedding Day PERFECT! He is so kind and warm-hearted which comes through in his eloquent Ceremonies. I can’t imagine our special day without him. Rev. Don really captured the essence of our love and illustrated it perfectly throughout the ceremony. We cannot thank him enough!
Don is awesome! I absolutely lived having him officiate my wedding. My wife works a lot and I was in charge of finding the officiant. I called a few others but the first time I talked to Don I knew he was the one for us. We met with him about a month before the wedding and he helped us plan a couple things and get a list ready for the wedding. He did so much more than just officiate the wedding. Our wedding day was even on his birthday and he didn’t care, he said he’d love to do it. So glad I found him on here.
Reverend Don is the best. He has a calming presence which really helped my daughter get through the wedding. He is so friendly and funny but at the same time very professional!
Reverend Don did a phenomenal job at our wedding. He was so flexible and willing do whatever we wanted. All of my guests talked about how great he was. He officiated the ceremony flawlessly. I am so grateful for him being apart of our special day. Thanks so much!
Rev. Don was a blessing to us on our wedding day, to say the least![A little back story just days before our big day]:
Unfortunately, the officiant we had originally booked had a family emergency and needed be with his family out of town on our wedding day. Before leaving town, he recommended a trusted colleague (Rev. Don) and made a phone call to see if he was available. Thankfully, Rev. Don just so happened to be available on our wedding day (he was booked almost every weekend except ours) and more than willingly stepped in. He immediately took charge and gathered all details necessary to make a smooth transition. There was not a single hiccup in the process.
Prior to the ceremony, Rev. Don took time to review our vows and made sure we felt comfortable with the flow for the ceremony. I especially liked how he brought two ties to the rehearsal for me to pick out which tie I liked best for him to wear. A thoughtful touch that was greatly appreciated.
My husband and I had a beautiful ceremony and felt extremely comfortable having Rev. Don by our side. We knew if we got nervous, he was there to guide us through. I had multiple friends and family members say it was the best ceremony they have witnessed. Even though we had just met Rev. Don, it felt as though we had known him for years. I cannot say enough kind words about him and would definitely recommend him to anyone getting married!
While planning a wedding at the inconvenient time of switching churches, we were left searching for pastor, and spoke to several before meeting Rev. Morphis. Don met with us several times and was easy to work with throughout the wedding process. He is very experienced and professional, and with such a background in the church, it did not feel like we were hiring just a “speaker”. Several of our guests came to us after specifically complimenting how good of a service he led.
He also offers pre-marital counseling which we would have loved to take part in but were running so late in finding a pastor, we were unable to.
Reverend Don did a phenomenal job at our wedding. He was so flexible and willing do whatever we wanted. All of my guests talked about how great he was. He officiated the ceremony flawlessly. I am so grateful for him being apart of our special day. Thanks so much!
Rev. Don is amazing! I can truly say that our wedding would not have been as magical had he not been a part of it. Although we had never met before, our bond with him was instant. He gave us a tailored, one of a kind ceremony. I will forever be grateful that we choose Rev. Don!
Rev. Don was great! I found him via the Knot and I cannot say enough good things about him. I first met Rev. Don by myself because we live out of town and my husband (then fiancé) could not get to Charlotte. Rev. Don made me feel comfortable and wanted to meet my husband before he committed to doing our wedding. I loved that! Our families are various different religions and Rev. Don did researched and accommodated doing a non-demoniational wedding. We are a very unique couple and he managed to give the perfect ceremony! I had 2 other sisters get married and my dad told Rev. Don that he wished he would have known him for those weddings! That is a big compliment coming from my father because he is very picky! I highly recommend hiring him for your wedding!
I cannot say enough good things about Reverend Don. From our first meeting with him he showed so much interest in us and was so helpful throughout the whole process. Don is so easy to work with and truly a great guy. We will recommend him to everyone we know that is getting married!
Reverend Don Morphis is truly a Man of God. He was very easy to communicate with and understood exactly what we needed for our wedding ceremony. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him!!
Rev. Don Morphis was such a delight to work with! He was very organized, helpful and available around my busy schedule! The best part was that it felt as though we had known him forever. Not only did we have so many family members and friends come to us with such great things to say, but we also felt that he made our ceremony perfect. I would recommend him to anyone!
Mr. Morphis was awesome! He was very responsive and professional. He was very affordable and willing to do whatever was needed. I would definitely recommend him!
I found Reverend Don through my photographer. I kind of was at my wit’s end to find a pastor and he was such a ray of light during the wedding planning process. For me and my husband, it was important that our pastor have the same beliefs. Once I spoke with him and heard his background and story, I knew he was the one for us. He crafted such a moving and loving ceremony for us, I cannot thank him enough. There were many guests in the audience who asked us if we had known him for many years – that is how connected our ceremony was. Reverend Don and his wife Donna were especially kind to all of our guests and family during all of our events. His careful preparation and thoughtfulness showed in how lovely our ceremony was. I cannot wait to get our ceremony video because I am going to watch it all the time! We look forward to speaking with him in the future to share our milestones as a married couple!
Amazing gentleman!!! Made everyone cry in a amazing way on our special day. Genuine, sweet with an amazing heart! Couldn’t have had a better ceremony . He is the best! Thank you for making my wedding day so special and memorable.
Reverend Morphis came highly recommended by our wedding venue. He was extremely knowledgeable, efficient and understanding. My guests are still raving about him!
He was awesome!! All the guests at the wedding had nothing but nice things to say about him! He is a wonderful person! We highly recommend him!!!
Don was wonderful. He made my husband and I so comfortable during the ceremony and everything ran so smoothly. I would recommend him to anyone. Friendly, compassionate, sweet and very nice to work with. He also attended our rehearsal dinner which was so kind and made the rehearsal very clear and comfortable cod everyone. Thank you Don for everything!!
Rev. Morphis was fantastic and just an absolute phenomenal individual to take part in our wedding day. It was a pleasure getting to know him as we grew closer to the wedding day. His input and advice was well-placed and delivered with the best of intentions during the entire process. We could not have been happier with Don as our officiant and would recommend him to anyone.
Don was a pleasure to work with, all our guests loved him! Would recommend to anyone looking for an easy going wedding.
Rev Don was absolutely amazing! I don’t know what we would have done without him. From our very first meeting, he was awesome and all about getting to know me and my (now) husband. He is the kind of guy that you feel like you have known for years after just meeting him. He is truly interested in your story and making your wedding ceremony EXACTLY how YOU envision it. I warned him about some family issues that may arise, and when they did, he consulted me and asked me what I wanted to do with such a comforting tone, and he took care of it completely so I didn’t have to/get upset dealing with it myself and hurting peoples feelings. Rev Don, and his wife Donna took the reins and completely ran our rehearsal and the ceremony (It was amazing of them since I didn’t have a planner – and they didn’t charge me extra for this service!) Rev Don is truly apart of our family. He attended our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and wedding reception. He isn’t like one of the churn and burn officiants that also schedule 4 other weddings the same day and collect their money when they pass GO. He truly cares about the couple and WANTS to be a part of your day! I would recommend him to anyone who needs an officiant or a family friend!
An amazing reverend with an awe inspiring background of what he has overcome in his life. He was an amazing officiant and out everyone at ease.
Reverend Morphis was our officiant at our recent wedding at the Lakes and he is just awesome. He truly cares about making your wedding special and everything you want for it to be from vows, to candle/sand ceremonies, etc. Both he and his lovely wife, Donna, made our rehearsal and wedding very special and I feel blessed to have met them. They are a great example of what marriage should be and you feel good just being around them.
