It would be an honor to be your personal officiant for your special day. Your ceremony can be traditional, contemporary, Christian, interfaith, or a blend of styles. I will work with you to design a ceremony that represents the best of who you are as a couple. Your first consultation is always free of charge. Please contact me so that we can discuss your vision for your big day!

    The best ever!

    Do you want your friends and family to rave about your wedding officiant for months to come? Pastor Jay is your guy. He was honestly the backbone of our entire wedding, and I cannot recommend his services enough. He is kind, incredibly patient, funny, and a joy to be around. He helped us out in so many different ways I can't even count them, but more than anything he felt like a friend when we got to our wedding day, and he made our day feel unique and special. Pastor Jay rocks!!

    Best Officiant EVER!

    Pastor Jay was not only a JOY to work聽with, but a LIFESAVER! Jay was so much more than an officiant for my husband and I on our wedding day and throughout our planning journey. From the very beginning he took the time to ask and learn details of our day and lives that most officiants would not. Being an out of state couple, he worked so well with us to coordinate in-person or zoom meetups. Even more than all of this you guys, when Covid-19 threatened聽to ruin our dream wedding, Pastor Jay stepped up even more. He became our coordinator, MC and kept Brandon and I cool throughout the day. I cannot recommend聽him enough. If you are looking for the best guy to be a part of the most intimate part of your day (the ceremony) and MORE, Pastor Jay is your man.
