Experienced wedding officiant
I needed a bilingual officiant for our wedding ceremony as my future in-laws spoke limited English. I wanted the ceremony to include a few of the Spanish traditions that were important to my groom & ensure his family was included throughout our vows. Dr. Jim was everything we were looking for! He was familiar with the traditions we wished to incorporate & had no problem performing half of the ceremony in Spanish to make sure everything happening was understood by all. He even went off script to give us a little marriage advice that will stay with me for years to come! We unfortunately could not marry in the Catholic church due to a few limitations, mainly surrounding the date we chose, but Dr. Jim made sure to incorporate religion into our ceremony. He was professional & responsive from our first message to our wedding day. I highly recommend him!Sent on 12/12/2018

Dr. Jim was a pleasure to work with. We felt comfortable from the day we had our initial meeting with him and everything turned out just as he explained! He was so personable and made our ceremony flow better than we could have imagined. He took care of filing our marriage license paperwork after the ceremony and in just a couple weeks we were all set! He made things easy! Thank you so much!Sent on 11/02/2018

I was on top of almost all of my wedding details from the beginning, but was really dragging my feet when it came to finding the perfect officiant; my side of the family is Roman Catholic, but my now husband’s family is Jewish and Eastern Orthodox. However, for ourselves, all we wanted to convey in our beach ceremony was positive spirituality and love.Sent on 06/02/2018
Worried that I wouldn’t be able to please everyone (including ourselves!), I expressed my concerns to my wedding coordinator. She suggested Reverend Dr. Jim Berger, and I am so thankful that she did!
Dr. Jim was great from the start. He is easy to communicate with; he made time for phone calls to get to know my then fiancé and myself, as well as an in person meeting with my parents. He understood that my parents are devoted Catholics, and made sure that he did all that he could to please them and ease their worries. Dr. Jim has a positive presence; I really appreciate how he believes in love and made it apparent that he would do whatever he could to ensure everything went smoothly.
During the ceremony, Dr. Jim made sure that we were present in the moment; he seemingly slowed down time and made us soak in that special feeling that came from our marriage ceremony. I am so thankful he did, because it goes by quicker than you realize. Because of Dr. Jim, I will always be able to stop and remember that beautiful moment in life.
Overall, not only is Dr. Jim easy to communicate with and gets the job done, his heart is open and he genuinely cares about making your ceremony all that you want and more!

Reverend Dr. Berger is great to work with! He is a very pleasant and gracious man with all of his clients and vendors he works with!
Rev James Berger was a pleasure to work with and extremely professional. He made my clients feel at ease and performed a beautiful ceremony. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Rev. Berger is an absolute delight to work with, and extremely professional- yet fun. It is important to have an officiant as passionate about your ceremony as Rev. Berger, as it is his attention to detail and fantastic personality that make a difference. Reverend Berger is definitely recommended by me. PAUL L. MARSHALL- OFFICIAL MC OF THE CAPE CORAL WEDDING EXPO
