“As we look back at our beautiful wedding, we have so many things to be thankful for. Tony played such a huge part in our special day and we couldn’t be happier. He is a complete natural and he has a comforting demeanor. From the moment we met him, we knew he was a perfect fit for us. The day of our rehearsal, we realized that we did not have enough room to use the original arbor we had chosen and he was able to provide us with a small option immediately. Our ceremony was perfect! It was exactly what we were hoping for and he added so many personal touches. It truly seemed like he had known us for years. Tony was able to hang out for some of our reception as well. Our family and friends loved him! It has been a few weeks since our wedding and they are still talking about how wonderful he is. We were very impressed by Tony’s professionalism towards our other vendors. We have never seen an officiant, photographer and videographer work so well together!
Our wedding day would not have been the same without Tony and we hope that others get to have the same great experience as we did. Thank you Tony! You have found your gift”!

TO FUTURE COUPLES: I wanted the perfect person to perform our ceremony and I found that in Rev. Jay Bowman! You will not be disappointed in him. From the very beginning he made us feel like we were important. He took the time to talk to us and made us feel comfortable. I got to finally meet him on our rehearsal night, and he made my family feel right at home. He laughed with us and spent time talking to each and every person it seemed like. His flexibility and compassion was amazing on our wedding day. It rained an hour before and we weren’t sure the storms were going to hold off so we moved the wedding up in-between the storms and he was able to make it happen. We were very impressed with him and my family was so happy that we found such a great person to be a part of our special day! Thank you Rev Jay Bowman—you will never be forgotten!
“Tony! You. Were. Magical. I can’t even begin to express how perfect you made our ceremony. Literally, everyones first comment was the ceremony was amazing… the ceremony was the best one I’ve ever been to, did you know that guy before, how long have you known him, where/how did you find him, can I have his card, will he travel to Charleston… To just name a few. Everyone had the highest praises for the ceremony and Our Officiant. I can now vouch that your friend was spot on, you are perfect for this! I could have never imagined our ceremony being so perfect and it had a whole lot to do with you, your words and delivery! The next time we’re in town, or if you’re ever in the DC area we would love to get together to just hang out and meet your wife! I can’t thank you enough! You were beyond perfect”!

Rev. Jay could not have conducted a more beautiful wedding for my daughter and son-in-law on April 20, 2015. His easiness and calm demeanor put all of us at ease and we knew what to expect on the wedding day. He has a unique approach to his style and EVERYONE commented on how wonderful he was. This was a day I and everyone at the wedding will remember forever! Thank you Jay for a beautiful wedding!!
“My husband and I were so blessed to have Tony Joseph be a part of our special day. Not only did he do a beautiful job setting up the chairs, arch, and flowers for our beach wedding, but he also did an amazing job as our officiant. He made us both feel so comfortable throughout the entire ceremony, and there was not a dry eye by the end thanks to Tony’s wonderful and professional delivery! Our guests continue to comment about how wonderful our officiant was. I highly recommend you choose Tony to be a part of your special day as well!

Wow! This man is amazing. A 5 rating is not enough. There are no words to describe Jay and his passion for officiating weddings. I honestly feel like I have known him forever. My husband and I first saw Jay officiant a wedding of a friend. Once we got engaged (a week after that we had to have Jay officiant our wedding. He took so much time getting to know us as not only a couple, but as individual people. He was open for whatever we wanted
in our ceremony, he gave us his opinions, and he led us to create an amazing ceremony. We are so grateful to have shared that day with Jay. He will forever feel like a part of our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!!
“We would definitely recommend Tony to anyone getting married on the outer banks! He is so personable and really took the time to get to know us in order to tailor our ceremony to our personalities. He was super flexible when we had to change plans to meet with him before the wedding at a different time. Tony really did make our day extra special and I don’t think that it would have been nearly as nice if we had used another officiant. His energy and happiness is contagious. You can tell he loves his job and really cares about the couples he works with. Definitely hire Tony!!!!! You won’t regret it”!

We are so blessed that Jay Bowman was available for our wedding. The ceremony is such a meaningful part of the day and you want to entrust someone special to tie everything together by captivating an important moment in your life. He made our day so memorable and truly conveyed the spirit of the islands to our guests. Our family and friends loved his service and we will always feel so lucky and thankful for him! We highly recommend Jay and we hope that he will continue to bless others with his presence!!
“Pam and I were very impressed with everything about working with Tony Joseph on our wedding. Tony handled everything including set up, and serving as officiant, assistance with directions to the nearest court for our license, as well as referring a photographer, who we were very pleased with. He also arranged for our flowers at the last minute. Most impressive was his flexibility. We were originally set to marry on 9/9 and the weather was supposed to be bad on hat day, but nicer later in the week. Tony called us, after conferring with the photographer and we moved our wedding a day and got beautiful weather. The day before the ceremony Tony came to the house we were renting and met all of us and got to know us, and used some of that information to personalized our wedding. We could not have been more pleased.
