Again Voted "Best Wedding Officiant"
by Minnesota Bride Magazine
Thank you for voting for me! I feel blessed and honored. This is
the review they used when presenting the 2011 award:
““Rev. Tomkin was calm, affirming, and he gently guided us through the wedding process. I was able to totally relax into our wedding because it was clear that Rev. Tomkin had a handle on what needed to be done, what our wishes for our day were, and for what the other people at our wedding would expect.” –Tammy Hendrickson, married November 15, 2003, at The Reserve, Plymouth, MN.
This is the review MN Bride used when presented the 2010 award
for Best Wedding Officiant:
“Rev. Tomkin is really personable and original; he doesn’t
serve the standard typical patter you hear in wedding sermons.
We met with Rev. Tomkin to talk about our relationship and our
thoughts on marriage and each other, and he took that and
really did something unique for us. He was really diligent and
spent a lot of time with us to make it special!”
–Kris Butler, married May 23, 2008, at Stella’s Prestige Oyster Bar
"When we were planning our wedding, we were hoping to find someone to marry us that we felt comfortable with. After spending about 5 minutes with Reverend Coleman we knew we had found the right person.
As we were telling Rev. Tomkin about what we were
envisioning we felt that he was as excited about the ceremony as
we were. As this was the first wedding for us both, it was great
having someone that has done so many weddings be that passionate
about our ideas. When Reverend Coleman conducted the rehearsal
we could tell that he really understood what we were going for
and what we wanted. Then when he put it all together at the
ceremony, which was beautiful and perfect. We really felt that we
was very excited to be part of our special day.
In March of 2006 we had our first child, a son. We wanted to share the happy news with him, as without the wedding we would not have our son. I am sure you will be just as happy as we are having Reverend Coleman officiate the start of your life together!"
Nothing can replace a face-to-face meeting together, but I hope
that the above testimonials give you an idea of what it's like to
meet together to chat and plan.
I have designed and performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies, many of which came from referrals received from churches, reception sites, wedding professionals, and happy couples. Often after a wedding, some of the guests or even the photographer or the caterer will come up to me and ask if I'm available to perform their upcoming wedding ceremony! I'd love to work with you, to make sure that your wedding is exactly the way you've dreamed it would be.
