    Jim was incredible!

    Jim made our wedding ceremony incredibly personalized and special. Both of us had been raised Catholic and wanted to honor or family’s traditions with a Catholic inspired ceremony. He was extremely charismatic, funny, and sentimental. Almost everyone at our wedding was moved to tears! Many of our guests told us it was the most moving and beautiful ceremony they had attended. Thank you so much Rev. Jim!!

    Totally unique experience

    We are feeling so blessed that we discovered Jim and booked him as our wedding officiant. We had a big question mark on our checklist when it came to an officiant. Jim practically came to us, as my husband-to-be discovered the Beacon Hermitage and upon further research, discovered that Jim was available for officiant services! Our wedding was an adventure of a weekend, but Jim stood fast by our sides. During our vows it was pouring rain but Jim held our umbrella and kept us calm and at times it felt like no one else was there but the three of us; he was so focused on us and our ceremony and union. We wouldn’t change a thing and hope that we stay in touch with Jim for many years to come.

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.
