    Warm and Wonderful Officiant

    When your officiant delivers the most perfect ceremony and your friends in attendance are surprised to learn that you have only known your officiant for a month before your wedding day, you know you found the right person!

    We found Jim through our photographer, who recommended him to us as put together our intimate elopement ceremony in the Hudson Valley, after our original wedding day was impacted by COVID-19. From our first call with Jim, we knew that we didn't even need to talk to anyone else, we needed Jim to do our ceremony. From our very first call, Jim really took the time to get to know us as a couple - to hear our story, what brought us together, and what marriage means to us. He was easygoing, not pushy, and I felt like he genuinely cared. We booked him shortly after our first call.

    Jim made the entire process for our elopement so seamless, he even offered his beautiful garden for our ceremony, should our original site be impacted by COVID closures. As we were putting together our elopement, I was dealing with the illness of a dear loved one, who passed away the day before our ceremony. Jim wove this into our ceremony in the most touching way and made us feel cared about in a way I will never forget.

    Our ceremony was incredible, Jim put together a heartwarming ceremony that incorporated our faiths in a touching way and incorporated our families who attended via Zoom due to COVID. He helped us feel together, despite being apart. Jim was also very knowledgeable on NY State marriage laws, took care of our license like a pro, and helped us make sure everything was signed and taken care of.

    I feel like we got more than just an officiant experience in our time working with Jim, I feel like we found a new, dear friend in the process as well. We are SO incredibly grateful to Jim for all that he did for us on our wedding day, and in the month leading up to it. It was an honor to have him officiate our wedding, and we are so touched by his kindness and support in making our wedding day absolutely the best it could have ever been.

    Amazing Officiant!

    Having Reverend Rooney officiate our wedding was one of the best (and easiest) decisions we made for our day. Immediately after meeting him, we knew he was the right choice. He crafted a ceremony that was so unique, heartfelt, and reflective of us. Our guests are still talking about it, and have declared it to be the most special and intimate wedding they’ve been to. If you are looking for a wedding officiant, look no further. We highly recommend Reverend Rooney!

    Above and beyond what we had hoped!

    Working with Reverend Jim is one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning! From our initial meeting with Reverend Jim, we knew that we would be so fortunate to have him officiate. Throughout the whole process he was warm, kind, and patient. As COVID caused us to postpone our larger celebration and have a small elopement with our immediate family, Rev. Jim was there willing to do whatever possible to ensure that we had a special day.

    Our ceremony was absolutely amazing and beyond what we had hoped. Reverend Jim really incorporated our stories and our families into the day. He has such a beautiful way with words and made our ceremony so personal. We feel so lucky that we had his guidance and cannot thank him enough for giving us such a beautiful ceremony and memories!
