I officiate non-denominational, interfaith, cross-cultural and same sex wedding ceremonies.
Ordained 20+ years, I’ve met hundreds of good, funny, wonderful couples. I’ve officiated wedding ceremonies as diverse as Muslim/Hindu, Muslim/Jewish, Christian/Atheist.
I’ve seen a pot-bellied pig as a ring bearer and a bride’s cousin belly dance with a sword balanced on her head as she presented the rings!
I’m not going to say that I’ve seen it all, but I’ve witnessed a lot. And I’ve loved it all!
I believe that in a wedding, a couple invites family and friends to celebrate the great good they have found in each other — and bear witness as they pledge to continue to create a life-giving life together. Folks put aside the messiness of daily life and remember what really matters — love, loyalty, family, friends. This is what I help a couple celebrate. . .
I don’t have pre-printed ceremonies as I work with a couple to create a ceremony that reflects them. Five years after your wedding no one will remember what I said, but they’ll remember the tone and feeling of it all.
Many couples who come to me desire a ceremony that honors the sacredness of what they’re doing without it being religious or denominational. “Sacred” (not “stuffy”) in the sense that when you give your word to another, that giving is bigger than the two of you.
Your life together began the first moment you met. Your wedding is an oasis along your journey— celebrating the life you’ve created and honoring the life you’re committed to creating.
My hope is that your ceremony provides a touchstone for your life together.

The Best Choice You Could Make
JP Reynolds is an absolute professional when it comes to officiating a wedding. JP took the time to get to know us, helped us plan out the wedding ceremony from beginning to end, was incredibly responsive whenever we had questions or wanted to change an aspect of the ceremony, guided us in regards to the marriage license, and delivered an incredible ceremony. Every person who attended our wedding complimented what a fantastic job he did and how much they enjoyed the stories and wishes that he provided. If you've confirmed the date of your wedding, JP Reynolds should be one of the very first vendors that you contact. We could not be happier with our wedding ceremony, and JP was a tremendous part of that. We would recommend him to every engaged couple.Sent on 11/22/2020

Our Palm Springs Wedding
JP was beyond our expectations. My wife and I felt extremely comfortable up there; we did a circular ceremony so the concept seemed overwhelming at first with 200+ people around us but we couldn't of enjoyed it more with his calming words & energy up there. We even had a special request on the specific timing of saying our "I Do’s," but we knew that it wouldn't necessarily be perfect given such demanding requests…but low & behold JP somehow timed it to the minute and made the ceremony absolutely PERFECT at 4:55pm! We had endless compliments from religious and non-religious guests on the job that JP did officiating our wedding. JP does a fantastic job of relating the ceremony to everyone present, regardless of beliefs. We highly recommend using JP, he is more than welcome to help and meet with you as many times as you want in preparation for your wedding! Unlike a lot of professionals out there.Sent on 04/03/2020

JP was an incredible officiant to work with. My (now) wife and I could not have been more happy with how our ceremony turned out! For the planning phase, JP is with you throughout the whole process providing invaluable advice and suggestions so that you are able to make your ceremony something truly special. He really puts in the effort to get to know the couples and we were so happy to be able to meet with him multiple times before the wedding to put our minds at ease. As for the actual ceremony, he is a special and heartfelt officiant with all the right words. We had multiple people ask us how we found him, because he was the best officiant they had ever heard. We highly recommend JP as an officiant!Sent on 04/20/2020
JP is a great officiant, classy & always professional. My couples always love their ceremony and JP gives that feeling to guests that he has known the couple for years.
