"The most beautiful wedding I have ever seen!" Full service weddings AND $195 Garden weddings in VA

YOUR love shines through my ceremony.  Spiritual ... not religious. Non-denominational, different religions, Catholic, Christian and/or spiritual ... from the heart. My ceremony reflects and honors YOU as you are.

The love you feel for each other really comes through in my carefully-crafted ceremony ... both for you and for your guests - that is what I have been told is what distinguishes my ceremonies from what people are usually expecting.  The really remarkable feature is that your family and guests actually feel the love you share and are gripped in the moment, consciously participating.  I often see couples in the audience reach out to hold each other's hands as the ceremony unfolds, so lots of good things happen here!  Most people today are not overly religious, but want a beautiful and meaningful ceremony ... not just a run-of-the-mill, as-expected repeat of something they have seen many, many times.

My wedding ceremonies are definitely spiritual.  They have to be when you think about it: marriage is much more than a kiss and a binding contract. Mineoffends no one, honors everyone (no matter their religion or lack of it), and joins our common humanity in its universal trait, love.  At your wedding, you will have family and friends of every eclectic sort: very pious and wouldn't-set-foot-in-a-church-if-you-paid-them, Jews, Muslims, Christians and atheists.  Universally, they all come out saying to each other, "That was the best wedding I ever saw!"

I will go anywhere, indoors or outdoors ... in Washington, DC, suburban Virginia (inner suburbs out to Winchester and Fredericksburg, especially Hunt Country), Maryland (inner DC suburbs, plus all of the wonderful locations in Baltimore, up to Frederick and to Harve de Grace).  If you like, call and tell me what you want your wedding to be like.  We'll talk, and, if that sounds initially attractive, we'd meet and get to know each other, and we would go over the ceremony I use.  You take it home after our meeting and read it over.  If you like it, you then call back and confirm, and we go from there.

Just a little about me. I am married ... with a great wife, 5 children, and 12 grandchildren. I love summers, but take my jet ski to the Potomac River all year long ... beautiful! I have been a press secretary for a U.S. Senator, and also a real estate developer much of my life (e.g., I was the original developer of National Harbor), while being a minister/priest at the same time. So I have a pretty broad background (!) from which to approach the great spiritual wonder of marriage!

Jim Burch's insightful knowledge and personable nature helped guide us through our wedding, all the way from the planning phase to 'You may now kiss the bride'. During the ceremony, Jim's thoughtful words were conveyed in a graceful, powerful way that had an emotional impact on all that were in attendance. He was helpful and communicative during our selection of vows and other readings, and his vast experience in officiating eased any concerns we had for our wedding day. We know other couples in NoVA that have worked with Jim as an officiator, and they were just as happy as us! Thanks again Jim!
