Lowcountry Wedding Minister Reviews


Dr. Clarke, We wanted to take the time to thank you for the great job you did at our ceremony. The feedback from friends and family was very positive. More importantly, Rachael and I were extremely pleased and are very thankful... Please feel free to give out my contact info if a potential couple is in need of a reference. Thanks again, Joe and Rachael 


The most stress-free, beautiful wedding that surpassed my imagination. Dr. Clarke was just such a great, happy, beaming face that got us even more excited about our vows, even though they were short and fitting for a beach ceremony. They were just perfect. Jackie took the most incredible photos!! She was happy to do it, you could tell. She didn't rush us through and genuinely seemed to be having just as much fun as we were! The flowers that she brought were perfectly beautiful and exactly what I had requested. You can TRUST them to do an amazing job. They will not let you down!! Kara 


Jackie and Dr. Clarke, Hi! You did a great job on our pictures from Folly Beach! We like them very, very much! We will enjoy looking at them and remembering how much fun we had that day! Thanks for doing a fantastic job with our wedding! John and Melody 


Dr. And Mrs. Clarke are amazing. We couldn't have chosen a better officiant for our elopement. My husband and I called very last minute requesting an officiant and got so much more! We went with a combined service and photo package and the time they gave us and attention to detail made every moment special. Thank you for providing us with memories to last a lifetime.  Andrea Fiorillo

Dr. Clarke, It has been a whirlwind since we returned from the honeymoon but I wanted to say THANK YOU for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding! We can't thank you enough and you made us both feel so comfortable! We appreciate you working with us and helping us find the right words to say and then allowing us the flexibility to change things little things here and there the day before the wedding! You kept us cool, calm, and collective and for that we thank you! I have already recommended you to three of my friends. They are getting married next year so they should be contacting you hopefully soon! Thanks again for all of your help! Brian and Jessica Trask (Wedding at The Island House, John's Island, SC)

Dr. Clarke & Mrs. Clarke, I wanted to take a moment to send thanks to you both for such a beautiful, intimate ceremony this past Monday!! Looking back, it warms our hearts thinking of the most picture-perfect service offered to us!! Everything was PERFECT!! Would you please share the words that you spoke during the ceremony? This is something that we would love to have for years to come to reflect on, etc. It was traditional and spiritual, and an impeccable blend it was! It touched our souls deeply! Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a lovely ceremony! Warm regards, Victoria (White Point Gardens, Downtown Charleston, SC)

Dr. Clarke, I just want to say thank you so much to you and your wife for making our day unforgettable. It turned out absolutely beautiful. God allowed just enough time for us to take in that awesome sunset and get married. I couldn't have asked for any more from him and you and your wife, of course. Thank you again, Jennifer Shoe


Dr. Clarke, I've saved this thank you for last, in the hopes that I, with practice, might stumble upon the words to express the gratitude Jeff & I feel for the wonderful ceremony you gave us on October 18 at Old Wide Awake Plantation. It was perfect and just what we wanted! So, thank you a thousand times for making our day! Warmest regards, Debra & Jeff


Dr. Clarke, Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful and intimate ceremony on Sullivan's Island. It was always our vision to be married there and you made that vision a beautiful reality.

Dr. Love :), James and I wanted to take a moment to thank you and Jackie for our beautiful wedding! The weather threw a major wrench into our plans. But you and Jackie were more than accommodating to make sure our wedding was still perfect. A special thank you to Jackie for making sure we still got our beach pictures. Our wedding may not have gone as planned (and the rain didn't even happen), but our day was even more amazing than we could have imagined! Best wishes and thank you again!

Thank you, Frank & Bethany Rojas (Sullivans Island, SC Platinum Beach Wedding Package)

Dr. Clarke, Thank you so much for your service on 10/20/12. You truly saved us and many of our guests complimented us on your delivery. We could not have been more happy and pleased that you were the person to marry us! Best, Tracy



"After we decided we needed to change ministers just FIVE days before our wedding, I contacted Dr. Clarke. Within an hour he responded, came over to our home to meet with us the following night, was willing to work with us and meet our needs and was so helpful during our rehearsal. He did a wonderful job at the ceremony. He turned a near disaster into a wonderful marriage ceremony." Online Review by Tracy



All I can say is AMAZING! Dr. Clarke was a total sigh of relief. On a day that is known to be bonkers and super stressful, he made it so easy going, relaxed, and perfect! Dr. Clarke was eloquent at the same time as being very sweet and kind. Everything about the service he offered exceeded our expectations. The ceremony was so tasteful and beautifully done, while remaining intimate and personal. He's a total gem. We highly recommend Dr. Clarke to anyone looking for an honestly intimate and beautiful wedding. ---Julie & Blaine



Dr. Clarke,  We just wanted to thank you so much for doing such a FABULOUS job at our wedding!  You went out of your way to make our ceremony exactly how we wanted it but also added your own amazing personality and style.  We had so many compliments from guests at the wedding on how smoothly and eloquently you spoke!  We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special!  Thank you again!!!  Love~ Reg and Jaime Blynn

Dr. Clarke was ABSOLUTELY wonderful! My husband and I could not have asked for a more kind, generous, fun, and caring person to marry us! He was very quick to respond to ALL of our phone calls and emails! He offered many GREAT packages to choose from and helped us choose the perfect one for us! His wife Jackie did our photography and it was BEAUTIFUL! When we go back down to renew our vows we will DEFINITELY call these two people! THANK YOU for all you did to make our special day even more special! ---Tommy & Amanda Reilly

Hi Dr. Clarke, I wanted to thank you again for being the officiant for Duane and my wedding ceremony at Middleton Place Plantation.  It was the perfectly simple elopement that I dreamed of and I am so appreciative that it was you there.

Dr. Clarke, Hi!  It's Kristi, your Duke buddy from Kentucky!  It was such a great surprise to find out you are such a Duke fan since I consider myself "The #1 Duke fan!", at least in Kentucky that is!  I cannot thank you enough for the perfect ceremony you did.  You definitely were the highlight of the ceremony and it was just an added bonus for me that you were such a Duke Fan. Thank you so much for making my wedding so much fun and I do apologize for anything those mean University of Kentucky fans might have said to you that was a little harsh. They came home and told everyone about how the minister was a "Cameron Crazie" and of course I loved it. Thank you so much and I will be sending you some pics!!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! ---Kristi Maggard (Wooten)



If you are looking to have a Charleston wedding, look no further! Dr. Clarke is wonderful!! We had a Folly Beach wedding and purchased the elopement package which  included the ceremony, cake, bouquet and Charleston wedding photographer. They took care of everything and it was exactly what I wanted. His wife Jackie did a great job as our wedding photographer! Dr. Clarke was so relaxed which helped us relax. Somehow he even trained a pelican to be present for the entire wedding ceremony :)  The day was completely perfect! ---Shea Bowen



Dr. Clarke, Thanks again for being a part of Phoenix's Christening! Claire and I feel the event was a huge success and a very memorable experience for all that attended; your kind words, support and arbor offering were a big part of it. The arbor was a beautiful touch that had many talking afterwards during the reception. Thank you! Ray & Claire



Dr. Allen, Thank you so much for officiating our wedding ceremony on the beach at DeBordieu. It was absolutely beautiful and we took in everything you said. Also, it was very much appreciated to have you acknowledge those that are no longer with us. You made us feel completely comfortable and helped us so much along the way. We appreciated all of your advice. Thanks again for marrying us and making me the happiest bride in the world! :) Kacy and Justin Renck



Dr. Clarke officiated our daughter's baptism on Kiawah Island.  Everything was absolutely perfect!!  Dr. Clarke worked with us to personalize her baptism and even purchased a gorgeous shell to use during the ceremony. Dr. Clarke was so wonderful with our daughter...making her so at ease through out the ceremony. I highly recommend working with Dr. Clarke for your baptism or wedding needs!  Please do not hesitate to contact me for a reference:  415-297-1773.  Katie Helmer



Dr. Clarke, Myself , Melissa and our family would love to thank you for the wonderful wedding service that was provided for us on our wonderful day. Jackie did a great job on the ceremony and had a wonderful reading in which she read, "Beach Chairs". The weather was great, atmosphere and the relaxed feeling was what we were looking for. Jordan, the photographer was great as well, never being pushy or rude and allowing for ideas from us all.  All and all you guys are professionals and do an amazing job!! Thank you once again and keep up the great service that you provide!  Glenn and Melissa Hardesty

Hi, Dr. Clarke! Blaine and I can't stop talking about how fantastic you were and how everything went!! Thank you for making it even more special than what we imagined. Everything was so sweet and you were so eloquent. It was completely done in such great taste while still being laid back and relaxed.  Aces! I must say, you had some rave reviews! Thank you, again, for the awesome time! We couldn't picture our Isle of Palms wedding any other way.  ---Julie and Blaine :)



Dr. Clarke, Thank you! Thank you again for making our little Charleston wedding ceremony so wonderful! You & Jackie are a dynamic duo, very warm and professional.

Dr. Clarke, Jason and I would like to thank you for conducting our marriage ceremony.  Everything was perfect! We really liked our vows and wouldn't have found them without your help. Your help and guidance was greatly appreciated during our engagement period and wedding day.  You were very genuine, thorough, and professional.  We will highly recommend you to anyone who needs a wedding minister.  Kindly, Kelly & Jason Dack



Hi Dr. Clarke, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your services. We loved the ceremony and we had a great day! My husband kept talking about how great you were and he really appreciated you doing the sand ceremony for us too.  ---Katie Lucci



Dr. Clarke,  I greatly appreciate you meeting with me on such short notice. I can’t begin to tell you what a pleasure it was to meet you, and just how comfortable I felt when I left. I thought this part of the process was going to be stressful as we are looking for a less traditional service than most, but you managed to make me feel at ease immediately. I called Julia as soon as I left, and based on the excitement in my voice, she said we need to look no further. We look forward to you being part of our special day. ---Jay Garber



Thank you for helping make our special day the best it could have possibly been, from all of the planning through phone and email before the wedding, to your personal attention to our guests and family members the day of our marriage, it wouldn't have been the same without you Dr. Allen. Your kindness and professional approach will always be apart of our wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ---Jarod & Kristina Davis
