    Incredible experience with Father Jim

    Father Jim was amazing. From the first time we spoke to him to planning the ceremony to the rehearsal to the ceremony itself, he was an amazing and kind leader to us throughout.

    We were especially blown away by his ceremony delivery which was just incredible and so charismatic.

    We can only give the highest praise to Father Jim and would absolutely recommend him for your wedding ceremony in the future!

    Father Jim is amazing

    Father Jim was from start to finish nothing but courteous, professional, and most importantly incredibly kind and helpful. His approach to our wedding ceremony was incredibly straight forward and very easy to create. As the bride, I was quite nervous especially at the rehearsal, and he was kind, reassuring and made everything incredibly easy to understand and follow. Our wedding ceremony blew away our friends and family. I can鈥檛 recommend Father Jim enough.

I have known Father James St George for many years now and I know him to be a very professional, caring, understanding, and accepting cleric. He has a real passion for helping others and for making sure their special day is the best it can be. It has been and continues to be a blessing to work with him.

Elegance String Quartet Elegance String Quartet Wedding Musicians

I've had the pleasure of working with Fr. James St. George many times at many different venues. I have to say he is one of my favorite officiants, so much that when my musicians and I arrive at a location for a wedding ceremony, we always say "I hope they got Fr. James" :) It's a treat for us every time we listen to his ceremonies because they are always on point and personal for the couple at hand, and Fr. James never misses a beat. See you at the next ceremony, Fr. James! Ray Bicolli from Elegance Quartet.

Being a Catholic and also a good Christian, I know the gospel when it's being communicated well. Father James 'gets it'- your wedding day is supposed to be about you and Father James understands the balancing act. God is at the center of this marriage, but it's also a partnership with him. God talks to everyone in the congregation especially the couple as those active players and doesn't preach. There are not many priests that can make you look up from your camera in the middle of a job and just listen- just listen to the words of your religion and realize not only why you married the most amazing woman- but also why it's so important to model Christian faith through marriage everyday- Father Jim can bring all of this to your next ceremony. He was an honor to capture on film! All my best- Dave Thomas, Just Joey Productions
