I can't say enough great things about James! My now husband and I were a little nervous when it came to finding someone to officiate our wedding since its such a special job, but we are so blessed and fortunate that we came across James because he was more than we could have imagined! From the first conversation I had with James he made it clear that he was passionate about truly getting to know my fiancé and I and learning our love story. Prior to the wedding day, my fiancé and I met with James and shared with him aspects of our relationship such as how we met, what we love about one another, how we are different/similar, and some of our favorite memories/stories with each other. James truly wanted to get to know us personally so that he could create a meaningful wedding ceremony for us. When it came to our wedding day I was truly amazed by the beautiful and personalized wedding ceremony James created for us. It was so special that James was able to paint a picture of our love story with his words for our friends and family to hear. At the end of the ceremony, so many of our friends and family came up to us and told us how great James was and how special it was that he made the ceremony so personalized to us. To all of the brides and grooms out there, I 100% recommend James as a wedding officiant!!!Sent on 06/26/2020

Professional and very flexible
James worked with us and adjusted to our plans openly and willingly. He was quick to respond, professional, and flexible. James was respectful and sensitive to our plans. He asked when in doubt and made us feel confident and comfortable at all times. Look no further, he was also willing to walk a half a mile to our wedding site! haha.Sent on 01/11/2021

Pastor James got to know us beforehand and everyone raved about our ceremony being so personal and funny! I had people ask me if he was a friend of ours! He was very respectful of us not wanting a religious ceremony as well. Would absolutely recommend him!Sent on 01/08/2021
