About Rev. James Hary

I perform wedding ceremonies by traveling throughout the Cleveland Akron areas to reception halls, homes, or parks for anyone anywhere, except same sex. I was ordained in 1989 by a normal traditional Bible based Christian church, not some new age multi-spiritual phoney religion, and NOT "instantly" over the internet by Universal Life Church like almost everyone else on this site. BIG HINT: Ask "Were you ordained on the internet and have you ever pastored an actual church?" Notice that I'm almost the only one with church photos! Being "licensed" is nothing special because Ohio issues minister licenses to anyone, whether internet ordained or by a real church like I was. Your wedding should be fun, but it is an important event, not a joke. If it was, you would go to Las Vegas and get married by an Elvis impersonator! So don't just let "price" be your guide. Besides having pastored a real church 20 years, my wife and I have been active volunteers in nursing home ministry and prison ministry. Generally I do a simple but nice Christian ceremony, but I also have a very tasteful non-religious ceremony for those who desire something civil/secular. Experienced, dependable and reasonable fee. Visit my website www.revhary.com for more info and photos. Contact me by phone (440) 829-7425 between 9a.m.-9p.m. or e-mail me revhary@yahoo.com to discuss your wedding. My fee starts at $100 for couples who come to me just to get legal and goes up depending on travel distance and if a rehearsal is desired. Read the reviews. I made them happy, I can do the same for you! :)

    Great day, no matter what happens.

    We planned this day, outside. It was 23 degrees, and still turned out perfect. Thank you Rev. James Hary

    Rev. James Hary did a beautiful job performing our wedding ceremony! We wanted a short and sweet christian ceremony, and that is exactly what he gave us! We will definitely recommend him to others!

    We researched several officiants until we decided on Rev. Hary. What made us choose him was: 1. He is a real minister, not somebody pretending with internet credentials. 2. He was very understanding as to how we wanted our ceremony and spent ample time talking with us about it. 3. His fee was on target. Our wedding was conducted with joy, professionalism, and came across with true sincerity. Rev. Hary performed a great wedding service for us and so we give our highest recommendations.
