    Best wedding officiant 😃

    We loved Jim! He was very responsive to phone calls and emails. We met with him in Chicago to go over our wedding ceremony vision a few months before the big day. We wanted something light hearted and personal and Jim delivered. He was more than accommodating with all of our requests for the ceremony and even came down to Green Bay the night before our wedding to host our rehearsal dinner. He spent time personalizing the ceremony script just for us and many of our guests learned things about Ken and I they didn’t know before the wedding. I didn’t stop smiling throughout the entire ceremony and it’s a memory we will cherish forever. Thanks Jim!!

    Best Officiant Money Can Buy!

    Jim was incredible! We met for brunch at first to see if he was a good match and he blew my new wife and I away. Brit and I were looking for an officiant who was easy going and could provide a sense of humor and calm to the wedding. We didn't want a ceremony or rehearsal that felt rigid and traditional; we wanted our officiant to know us and make sure the audience felt that he knew us too. Leading up to the wedding day, we weren't nervous at all, because Jim gave us the assurance with his actions that he had us covered. He sent check-up emails, was very responsive to all of our requests, and showed up timely. Jim was excellent at breaking the ice at our dinner rehearsal and then at our wedding. July 27th was the most perfect day ever and Jim really set the tone from the start with his speech. He broke into stories about the two of us and explained to the audience what our wedding party and family meant to us. He brought this great comedic approach to the ceremony that relaxed our party and made Brit and I feel very comfortable on the most important day of our lives. Thanks Jim for everything!

    Thanks Jim

    We had our wedding June 1st. Jim was a very friendly and outgoing guy. I like that he was very responsive to emails as well. He was prompt with video and phone calls too. His delivery and message given during our wedding ceremony was exactly what I had hoped for. Jim, thanks for being apart of our special day.
