Work with Jim!! The best decision we ever made.
Reverend Jim Mooney is one of the most special people my husband and I have ever met. Being engaged and planning a wedding is a exciting yet stressful time, with a lot of decision-making. We knew we wanted to have our ceremony onsite at our beautiful venue but there was a lot to figure out! We were so fortunate to have had Jim Rooney referred to us. Having him part of this journey and our big day was a gift in every way.
From our first conversation, he made us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions. We loved visiting Beacon Hermitage and the journey he took us on in preparation for our ceremony. So many of our guests said that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended, traditional yet unique to us in so many ways, and asked if Jim had known us personally beforehand! We are blessed to have started our marriage with an unforgettable and magical ceremony led by Jim.Sent on 12/03/2019

The perfect personal touch!
Reverend Jim was a key component of our amazing wedding experience. He personalized our ceremony and helped to tell our love story in a very real, authentic manner. Jim is also so kind and so great to work with! We loved him from the moment we met him. All of our guests commented on the ceremony and praised Jim’s work. It really was everything we could have hoped for and more. We highly recommend Reverend Jim and know you won’t be disappointed in his services!Sent on 11/30/2019
Work with Rev Jim Rooney is always such an honor. Witnessing and documenting his ceremonies are already a reminder of why we do what we do. He emphasizes the magnitude of what a wedding day means on the day and for the rest of their lives. We always learn about the couples he is marrying through his ceremony, and everyone feels the impact of the words and story.
I recommend Fr Jim as your officiant. Professional care at it's best!
