Wedding Officiant

I'm so honored to write this review. Jack set the tone for our wedding and he did a beyond phenomenal job!!

We looked into several officiants, and my husband and I had a feeling about Jack. Especially after reading his reviews/website I felt we shared a very similar outlook.

We first started off with a Zoom call and immediately we loved his kind, warm, outgoing, funny personality. We could tell he not only was a professional and confident in what he does, but he is a great listener and treats each couple with personal/individual attention.

He offers premarital counseling; which I recommend taking advantage off! We met with him a few weeks before the wedding, and he spoke with us about what can support a long lasting marriage…inviting us into conversations that that my partner hadn’t touched on. This was incredibly valuable as we listened to each other and Jack, we got to see new perspectives. He has an incredible energy that makes you feel like you've been friends for years.

On the actual wedding day Jack couldn’t have been any more perfect. He has a way of putting you at ease. My husband and I felt extremely comfortable with him there supporting us at the altar. He takes great care in curating a personalized ceremony that was reflective of how we met, what makes our relationship work, our values, and the love for our friends and family. The ceremony was beautiful, at times funny, deeply moving, and captured very bit of my husband and I. Sharing our love story and drawing in each guest there. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE raved about Jack and they asked who he was because he spoke as if he knew us for years.
The ceremony was breathtaking and there wasn't a dry eye. I credit Jack to putting this all together, taking the time to get to know us, and creating an experience we’ll deeply treasure in our lives forever. After the wedding day, he sent us the script of our ceremony to have as a beautiful keepsake memory!!

Jack, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day the best day ever and for calming our nerves. Thank you for being the best officiant!!! Heather & Tim

Worth Every Penny

The ceremony is really important, but sometimes people want to skip because let’s face it, it can be long and boring. With Jack that is absolutely not the case. From the get-go he made us feel so comfortable and at ease. We had a Zoom meeting with him before booking him and we instantly felt a connection. He recently moved from San Diego to Arizona and couldn’t make our rehearsal, but he jumped on another Zoom beforehand to make sure we felt confident with everything. Honestly he’s done hundreds and hundreds of weddings he really doesn’t need to be at the rehearsal and it will still go as smooth as butter. He was punctual and personable. He memorized our love story and blended his charming humor into the ceremony. Most ceremonies are only about 20-25 minutes, but we incorporated several Filipino cultural traditions and it ended up being 40 minutes. However, everyone said they were entertained the whole way through and it went by so fast. If you’re not religious, no worries. He speaks to love in a way that everyone can relate to. Hands down worth every penny.

Beautiful & Personable

On very short notice, Jack was available to accommodate our ceremony. In addition, Jack was very personable and incorporated our responses from our questionnaire to give our ceremony a more personalized experience. We highly recommend Jack!

Perhaps the reason I love to do weddings is because so many years ago I met and married my best friend. I still remember our first look in the choir room of that old church. We talked and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with the crust cut off. That day was the beginning of a romance that is still being written to this day. Our story includes 3 biological kids and one we adopted from Haiti.

As an officiant I have written and performed over 700 weddings for all kinds of couples. My goal for each ceremony is simple. I want it to feel like we are old friends. Because of that every ceremony is personalized to include each couples history so that your guests will be drawn into all of the love and laughter of your story.
