    Yes I have.  My brother's wedding was officiated by Coco.  He is a really really nice guy.  But he is definitely not the traditional officiant.  He's got more of a voodoo kind of vibe.  He is spiritual, but I not really religious. If you are the type that wants to know exactly what the officiant is going to say ahead of time, then I don't think Coco is your man.  His personality definitely goes with the vibe of the Parish room.

    Umm he said something about summoning the spirit of our ancestors, but that's all I can remember.  it was super windy outside so the weather was kind of distracting.   The ceremony was nice and very unique.  Have you ever seen Coco? He was in the first seen of Treme on HBO last week...maybe seeing him on TV will help you decide if he's the right officiant for you.

    we did see him!  we were already thinking about him before that.  i think we're going to go with him as long as he's available. 

    thanks for your help!  i'm from ny so planning has been a little tough at times!

    Would you mind me asking how much he charges?  I am really really interested in booking him...
