About WhollyMatrimony4U

AS SEEN ON THE LIFETIME TV SERIES, "MARRYING MILLIONS!"

Hello, Lovebirds! I'm Jim McFarlin from WhollyMatrimony4U, an ordained lay minister based in Champaign, Ill. In addition to being a wedding officiant I am an award-winning professional writer, experienced public speaker, and former standup comedian, making marriages memorable since 2007!

I've performed hundreds of ceremonies over that span, and while I don't mean to brag (clearing my throat here) my WeddingWire Couples Choice Awards in 2019 and 2020 suggest I'm pretty good at it. My goal is to create an experience that exceeds your expectations while leaving a lasting memory for you, your relatives and friends.

I'm happy to perform secular as well as religious and interfaith ceremonies, and will incorporate unity candles, sand or wine blending rituals, tree plantings and other unique elements upon request. I once spent a week learning about the Hispanic custom of the "lazo," or wedding lasso, to accommodate one couple's desire! I'm willing to do the homework and consult with you to ensure that your ceremony is personalized and customized precisely to your wishes. (And BTW, from years of experience, the ideal wedding lasts no more than 22:30.)

I also perform vow renewals. Though based in central Illinois, I'm a Michigan native and work across a six-state region that includes Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin and Missouri. Everything I do is designed to fulfill my company's name: it really is wholly matrimony –– 4 YOU!

    Fantastic, Funny, and Undoubtedly Worth It

    Jim was professional, hilarious, and made our event so special with all of our changes due to Covid-19. We contacted him around 2 weeks out from our event, due to Covid related cancellations and he had an opening. He was able to provide us with great service even though he knew us for less than 2 weeks. His ability to relate to couples is fantastic. We wouldn't have chosen anyone else! He made our day perfect. Highly recommend!

    Nothing short of spectacular

    Jim was easy to work with and added the right amount of character and wit to the ceremony. He personalized the ceremony just for us and added bits of comedy to keep it light. We loved working with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.
