"I like to bring some fun and light-heartedness into the ceremony. And yet it will be very beautiful and moving. Many ideas to choose from, or we'll write something together. It's as religious (or not) as you want, with a style that appeals to people of all faiths. I can play Guitar too, or accordion, or even mbira (an instrument from Africa). In 2016 I appeared on Discovery ID channel. In 2012 I officiated the wedding on Season 2 of "Glam Fairy" (Style Network). In 2007 I did a wedding live on the air on WPLJ's 'Scott and Todd Morning Show' in New York City. Please contact me and we'll meet in person for some coffee."

Phil was phenomenal! He performed a truly heartwarming ceremony for us, delivering exactly the moving but joyful tone we wanted and getting the balance on the spiritual content of the ceremony perfect. And in two languages! Our guests had tons of compliments for the ceremony, noting how well he captured our personalities and how celebratory our ceremony was. Phil also performed on his accordion for the ceremony which made the whole thing feel like a fairy tale. We're thrilled to have had Phil at our ceremony, can't recommend him enough, and hope to keep in touch!

Thanks Frances & Glenn. That was wonderful to be a part of, and the first wedding where I got to play VALLENATO accordion AND officiate too! It was an honor, on a gorgeous beach day. You both really shine together. Stay blessed :)
