    Better than we imagined

    I am so thankful my husband and I found Jim to officiate our wedding. Neither of us are particularly religious, so we did not have a pastor/priest that many couples go to when they start to plan their wedding. We were open about our views with Jim and not only was he completely respectful, but he truly exceeded our expectations during the ceremony. Everything was thoughtful and rooted in the meaning of marriage and love, and he was so well-spoken. Every single one of our wedding guests said how great he was and many even said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Some officiants can be boring or monotone, or speak to things that are not important to the couple, so I realize how nerve wracking searching for an officiant can be. I promise that Jim is not of these things, and you will be so glad that you chose him. We highly highly recommend.

    Jim delivered a great ceremony - had guests talking!

    Jim was very easy to work with. He provided us a "menu" of ceremony options ranging across the entire religious spectrum (including no-religion). We pick and chose the ones we wanted to hear, and Jim delivered the rest. He was prompt and professional, and his speech got rave reviews among guests afterwards.
