    Awesome Officiant

    John was easy to work with even on short notice. We had to find an officiant literally 30 days prior to our wedding after our church canceled our wedding due to COVID related issues. When we lost the church we lost the officiant so I had to scramble to find an officiant that had beliefs aligned with ours and let me tell you that is not easy! John jumped right in and did his part. Not only did he show up to rehearsal the day before and patiently waited as our bridal party was an hour late (😖 sorry John) and endured my brother calling him Morgan Freeman for 2 days. 😆 but he arrived on time to the wedding and helped keep our guests greeted and full of smiles. After the wedding he took care of ensuring accurate info for completion of and filing our marriage license. One thing some of our bridal party mentioned is he sometimes came across as pushy but he is an elder so I didn’t care. I didn’t experience that pushy behavior at all. Worth every penny in our book.

    Cheri and Oscar it was a pleasure working with you two and I’m so happy you chose me to be a part of your special day. I’m sorry that some folks felt that I was “ pushy” but my professionalism kicks in if I feel something isn’t going the way “ you” want it to go. Also you had more interactions with me and knew my heart. My actions always come with a little sugar attached as well. Thank you again and stay in touch with me.

    Our Perfect Ceremony

    Where can we start, from the very beginning when my now husband, Jordan first started looking for the perfect officiant to help set the tone for our entire wedding he found John. From the moment of requesting more information the communication was awesome. Excellent at getting back to you, being thorough in how the ceremony would go and really wanting to get to know the couple he was marrying. Charisma, heart, and really knows how to bring the guests together and gave great marital advice. Our Ceremony was heartfelt, funny, and charming, like the scene on a movie!! We instantly felt comfortable with John, his help at our rehearsal was also not forgotten. Thank you so much John!!
