Pastor Howard was professional and fun to work with. He made officiating my wedding a breeze with great vows and a wonderful personality!

It was such a nice wedding! Beautiful bride, lovely mom and your dad and I just hit it off from the get go. Both of us being veterans and both of us with a similar sense of humor meant immediate bonding. Thank you for the honor of officiating your wedding. (Didn't mean to leave Nicholas out, but he is one lucky groom!)

There is no better Pastor then Pastor Howard! He is kind, light hearted, and definitely not a clock watcher. He arrived early for a sunrise ceremony on the beach. His goal is to have the bride and groom enjoy the moment. He arrived in a suit and tie on the beach so I know he was hot but never made a mention of being warm. Pastor Howard is just a great guy! Don’t look anywhere else! He is the real deal!

Thank you Ray. You and Cinnamon make a perfect couple. A sunrise ceremony on the beach is a perfect setting for that perfect couple. I am honored to serve you.

Pastor Howard was a very passionate and clear speaker. He projected his voice every well so that everyone in the room could hear him even without a microphone. There were a few parts of the ceremony that did not go according to plan which I think was due to the fact that we hired him long distance and did not get a chance to go through the ceremony beforehand in detail. He is very kind and clearly loves what he does.

Thank you Amelia.

We asked for a short ceremony by the beach on the 4th of July and Pastor Howard did just that!! He was delightful and put a smile on both of our faces. He made it seem like we had known him for years. He was easy going about what we asked for and he was there early, which is nice because I’m a very punctual person. His service was kind, loving and meaningful. I would recommend him to anyone I know! Thank you Pastor Howard for making our little ceremony perfect!

Thank you so much for your kind words Persia. You and Shawn are delightful people and it was an actual pleasure to officiate your wedding. I wish you both the very best now and forever!

Pastor Howard could not have been a more perfect officiant for our ceremony. He met us beforehand to discuss how the day would go and even offered us some counseling. He made it so easy to customize our vows. He was early to the ceremony and beyond professional. He has a perfect voice and demeanor for being an officiant. Thank you Pastor Howard for being the best officiant we could have asked for!!

Thank you Laura for the honor. Please extend my best to your family (new and long standing).

Pastor Gunter performed our Son's wedding and it was better than we had hoped. The ceremony was simple (as the bride wanted), but beautiful. Pastor Gunter was wonderful to work with and felt like an old friend. Our son and daughter-in -law were so thrilled with everything. Please take a moment to speak with Pastor Gunter and you'll understand why I'm giving him this rating.

I enjoyed it as much as you all did. I am waiting to hear how great that honeymoon cruise was.

Justin and I are very happy that we chose to trust Pastor Howard with our vows. He was very invested in us and what we were looking for. He never made us feel uncomfortable and always supported us. His personality is very relaxed and loves to laugh but also is serious when it calls for. He also went above and beyond to print out a beautiful dedication to my mother in our service so I would have it forever. He arrived early and was dressed very nice. He was patient as key people were very late but right when the service started he had the passion we needed to forget the time. Thank you Pastor Howard for being just what we needed and most of all being so kind! Hope to stay in touch!

Angelina, you and your family made me feel like part of the family, I enjoyed your wedding very much. I too hope you and Justin will stay in touch. Angelina, you and your family made me feel like part of the family. I enjoyed your wedding very much and I too hope you and Justin will stay in touch.

He was absolutely fantastic! Also Super reasonable. My husband and I lost (he decided he couldn’t make it) our wedding officiant two days before the wedding however we did find Pastor Gunter just in time for our wedding. Last minute deals can be hell but Pastor Gunter made it beautiful and fun. Overall experience was amazing.

It was a real honor and privilege to serve you Len. Thank you!

Breteisha e.

October 23, 2017

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Howard was affordable, provided great communication and counseling and punctual, but his sense of humor was borderline unprofessional. After the groom thanked him for his services he congratulated him on marrying a beautiful bride but questioned what his bride saw in him. He continued the conversation with the brides father raising the same question as guests and the wedding party passed by. This probably was not the most appropriate setting for a prolonged joke. Other than that we appreciate Howard’s services and how quickly he sent our marriage license to receive the official certificate.

Well Breteisha I am sorry that anyone was offended by my humor. Thank you for the honor of serving you.

My husband and I got married this past June and we absolutely LOVED having Pastor Gunter as our officiant! We hadn't had good luck finding a pastor thus far but after meeting Pastor Gunter for our initial consultation we were both so excited. He is professional, very organized, and incredibly easy to work with. We felt so blessed that he traveled all the way from Daytona (from Jacksonville) to be a part of our day. Would very highly recommend :)

Pastor Howard is an absolute delight. He is such an enthusiastic, sweet, hilarious man. He made my now in-laws so happy and he's well aware of cultural differences (I'm Indian). He not only performed my wedding, but he happily baptized me at the beach at my own request. He works around your schedule and makes things happen. He's early to every event. He provides great insight into marriage and I loved his counseling session. He even provided the sand ceremony items, so that was a lovely surprise and last minute addition to the wedding ceremony. Pastor Howard is the best.


O Jaime it was just wonderful. You, your family and Ruban and his family made me feel so comfortable and welcome to be a part of your very special day. I will never forget you and hope that somehow you will find the time to stay in touch from time to time. I adore you and your family.

I was looking for a wedding officiant very last minute and Pastor Gunter was the first to contact. I had a good feeling about him, so I just went ahead and chose him. We talked one time and he had only one week to prepare. We got stuck at the probate court before the ceremony, so he patiently waited with no fuss. He was the one that picked the beautiful area that we got married at and gave us wonderful advice right before the ceremony. The ceremony was absolutely amazing due to the beautiful prayers and vows he had written himself. The wedding couldn't have been better! He was more outstanding than I could have asked for.

Thank you for such a glowing review. You guys make such a cute couple and your families are just adorable. I am so glad that you are pleased with the service. Feel free to stay in touch. ---Howard

I had a small ceremony on Cumberland Island. Howard met us early at the ferry and immediately I felt as if he was part of our family. He put my nerves at ease and we had a beautiful and personal ceremony. I couldn't have dreamt of a more beautiful day. Thank you!

Your family made me to feel like family and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thank you for choosing me to officiate your wedding..

Sophia and Antoni, what a grand time we had. IT was a great venue in the park under the shade of that beautiful Oak Tree. Then the ceremony was topped off by the band playing nearby, who showed great respect and ceased all until the ceremony was over plus announcing their congratulations over the loud speaker. Thank you for choosing me to officiate your wedding.

My husband and I hired just two days before our ceremony and he was totally fine with the short notice. we really appreciated him taking time to meet us before hand and talk a bit. He was also very patient with us the day of the ceremony and everyone really enjoyed his service. we highly recommend him!

Oh Lauren, it was such a fun wedding. I enjoyed meeting with everyone. Thank you for the honor.

Thank you Ren and Dwayne, I was made to feel at home and very comfortable. It was an honor to officiate your wedding and shake the hand of your Marine Sergeant, whom I was privileged to thank for his service.

Thank you Paul. You and Susan are a great couple. Your outdoor service was just fantastic in such a setting. The weather held off and I am particularly glad of that. All the best to you guys. Feel free to stay in touch/

Pastor Harold Gunter was amazing. He was attentive to our wishes for our wedding ceremony, he added his suggestive inputs, recommended success knowledge for marriage, and was early for every appointment. He told us that children and people talking would not bother him or stump him during the ceremony.......well we stumped him for the first time in his career. We made him laugh during his speech but he quickly regained his composure and proceeded on. I was impressed. Thank you for all you have done. I would recommend his services to anyone.

It was fun and I am pleased to have been a part of your special day! Wishing you all the best.

He stayed focused and made sure everything went smoothly. Thank you for all you did. Our journey as husband and wife has began with lots of blessings and full of love. 

What a great time we all had. Thank you for allowing me to share in your special day.

Overall the Pastor did a great job! He tailored the ceremony to our taste. I do wish we had done a rehearsal but that was my fault for not having one. He was very responsive to our needs.

I have nothing but awesome things to say about Howard Gunter! He is a wonder, polite, God loving man! I'm so happy he officiated my wedding, I know without a doubt is was not "just another service" to him. He truly cares for people. He is a man of God, I know this because he is the epitome of John 15:12 "Love one another as I have loved you". A big THANK YOU, and my prayer is that I one day become half the person you are! I recommend giving him a try for your service, you will not be disappointed! 

Thank you so much for such a powerful and wonderful review. I'll do my best to live up to it. I enjoyed the service and I am grateful to have served you and Jamie. Blessings to you.

Howard was wonderful and it was a great experience having him officiate our wedding. The first meeting with him was fun and insightful. I knew from the moment that I met him that he would be the one to marry David and myself. Although things were happening in his life it didn't interfere with our ceremony. We would like to thank him again for being apart of our special day.

Joanna, it was so good to be a part of your day. I enjoyed it very much and also meeting so many of your friends and family. May your marriage remain blessed eternal.

Everything me and my husband could've hope for. It's amazing to have someone join you together who truly loves what he does. The advice and the words of wisdom where inspirational. And the sand ceremony was just the icing on the cake. Thank you so much for blessing us and our union. Dez & Daquan 

Dez I am so pleased that you chose me to officiate your wedding. It was such a beautiful outdoor garden wedding and made special by electronically having your mom experience the ceremony live from long distance. Again, I wish you a blessed married life and good luck in San Diego.

Howard was absolutely amazing! He was very welcoming. I knew the moment i met with Howard he was the perfect pastor for us! He made us feel comfortable and really gave us the most incredible ceremony we could have asked for. I can say Howard doesnt perform ceremonys for the money he truly has a passion for what he does. He not only did a excellent job but he gave us something much more something my New Husband and i were able to take with us. He opened our eyes and explained how to love and respect one another and for that i am so greatfull. A wonderful way to start our marriage. 

Thank you Melissa for the honor of serving you. Best wishes and continued prayers for you and your family.

I'm a wedding planner who hired Pastor G sight unseen. He arrived on time. It was a gorgeous day at the Ortega River Club and he did an excellent job at the outdoor ceremony yesterday. He explained the sand ceremony so everyone could understand the significance of it. Wonderful job! I will call on him again whenever the need arise. Thank you Pastor

Thank you Jennifer, it was a fun wedding and an honor to be a part of that special day!

Great Value and Professionalism

Pastor Howard was very professional. He met with us to talk about personalize the ceremony to our liking. We also had a last minute venue change and he was more than able to adjust accordingly.  Thank you for your services on our special day Pastor Howard!

Pastor Howard was wonderful. He was extremely accommodating! He took the time to meet with my Husband weeks before the wedding to get to know us. We are both military and I am stationed in California, it was a challenge finding someone comfortable marrying us with the distance, but Pastor Howard had no problem helping us have the beach wedding we imagined. I'm so happy to recommend him for anyone that enjoys a sweet and personal ceremony.
