Liz was absolutely wonderful from start to finish in helping us plan our ceremony. She responded quickly to emails and really listened to what we envisioned our ceremony to convey. During the planning process, she was able to provide us with links and details on the "how" the plan the ceremony and personalized the whole thing very well. Planning and personalizing our ceremony was so easy, and we are so grateful Liz was part of our day!Sent on 10/26/2017

The planning of our wedding was very overwhelming. We did not know who, what, when or how everything was going to happen. We were referred to the Grimes by Stacy Street of the Wier Jordan house. We had a mix of Persian and southern American tradition in our ceremony. This was not a easy task to pull off. Liz and Jac Grimes came up with many great ideas that worked perfectly to make a beautiful wedding.
They are loving and caring people that made us feel like part of the family. They are very professional and always responded quick. They are experienced and know what it takes to make this very important day feel perfect. We recommend them to anyone that is planning a unique or different just as well traditional wedding.Sent on 10/15/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you Drew for such wonderful support. I can't thank you enough for trusting me with this important part of your wedding day. You made it so easy for me to give you what you wanted---you and Bita knew what you wanted and were clear. I really did enjoy working with you and combining the two cultures into one beautiful ceremony.

Liz was amazing! We had some small problems that happened prior to the wedding that she was able to fix and reassure us that everything would be just fine. Not only was our ceremony beautiful, but professional and fun! I couldn't have asked for a better officiant to work with!Sent on 09/26/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you Emily for your support! It was great being able to work with you and Andy to provide you with the ceremony you wanted. Your situation was nothing out of the ordinary for us---we are used to dealing with twists and turns along the way to marriage! You were great in dealing with everything and made our job easy. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!

Liz was such a joy to work with! She was professional and able to joke around with us. She captured our love story and our personalities beautifully. Additionally, anytime we had a question, she responded quickly. We highly recommend Liz!Sent on 11/07/2017

We just got married and Jac was our officiant. He and Liz did an amazing job preparing our ceremony at Bella Collina. They wrote us a great ceremony customizing it to exactly what we were looking for and making it very personal for us. Since the wedding last week many people have commented on how great the ceremony was and how well Jac officiated. We are so glad we met them and went with their services. Definitely talk to them first if you are looking for an official.Sent on 08/25/2017

From the second Jac was our reverend he was awesome. Everything he did was perfect but it was really nice because everything that he did, he asked us if it was the right thing to say. If anybody asks me who would go a great job in their wedding I would definitely say JacSent on 08/18/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thanks, Matt. We want every word spoken to truly represent you! We are so happy that we could accomplish that for you. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day!
Brieann · Married on 07/09/2017
We had Liz officiate our ceremony and she was nothing but AMAZING! We received so many compliments from our guests letting us know that they had never heard a ceremony as personalized as ours. We were also told that they had never seen so many people crying during a ceremony either. It's the personal touches like that, that made our ceremony so special. Communicating with Jac and Liz was flawless as well. We met with them over Skype and did everything else through e-mails, so it was super convenient. If you're looking for an officiant in the Triad area, we highly recommend All Faiths Wedding Officiants!Sent on 07/11/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you so much for these kind words! It was an honor and a joy to work with you and Sage to provide you with a ceremony that truly reflects your unique and beautiful love. Watching the two of you exchange loving looks, seeing the tears flow as you shared your vows, made my day!

Joseph · Married on 06/24/2017
For the record Liz and Jac are amazing! They were extremely professional, both in preparing and executing our ceremony, and in communicating with us along the way. To put a fine point on it, our wedding day was on their own ANNIVERSRY, which happened to be the date that worked best for us. They did not hesitate. Everyone should hire them for their own weddings!Sent on 07/29/2017
We wanted an "unconventional" wedding service. Both of us being of Celtic heritage (Scots-Irish), and spiritual but not particularly religious, we were looking for something a little different. We contacted Liz and Jac to see if they were a good fit. They absolutely were. Liz and Jac’s experience in designing unique and meaningful wedding ceremonies was incredible. We decided on hand fasting with an oathing stone, sprinkled with a little Native American tradition. Other people talk about wedding planning as stressful, but Liz and Jac made it fun! Without their input on the ceremony, readings, and traditions our wedding would not have been as memorable.
From an attendant:
We were in NC for my brother's wedding this past weekend. It was truly a beautiful ceremony, they requested the guests dress in renaissance peasant clothing. The bride was beautiful, she resembled a beautiful forest sprite, the groom in a tunic and peasant pantaloons. They designed their ceremony and it was very nuanced with traditions borrowed from various societies (Native American, Celtic, etc.). The officiant was a priestess. The most impressive to me was the hand fasting, a Celtic tradition. This involves the bride and groom holding hands and having their hands bound with five cords, each symbolizing a different blessing. Then they pull their hands apart and the cords formed a knot...hence the phrase "tying the knot".

Jac and Liz have such beautiful souls. We are so very thankful to not only have met them, but that they played such an important role in our wedding day. From our first skype meeting to our wedding day they always showed a fun, professional, reliable, and admirable traits . They are a wonderful team! Jac developed our wedding vows. He took the story of how my husband and I met and developed it into a beautiful love story to share with all of our wedding guests. When it came to choosing our wedding vows he had plenty of options to choose from and even said we could pick and choose to create what felt perfect to us! They respond quickly to emails and phone calls. We even received a personalized notebook with printed version of our wedding ceremony that included our vows, certificate, and instructions on how to change your name. They are very active on social media and you can truly tell they have such a love and passion for the work they do. In fact, my dad died suddenly, a few months, after my wedding and Jac drove 2 hours to be there at the funeral. It still gives me chills to this day. This shows just a glimpse of how truly wonderful Jac and his wife are. If you want an officiant of a lifetime these two are your people!Sent on 05/22/2018

We truly enjoyed working with Liz. We didn't want a traditional ceremony and Liz was very helpful in working with us on creating our own vows! I would recommend Jack & Liz Grimes services!Sent on 07/31/2017

For anyone looking for a wedding officiant, you owe it to yourself to give Jac and Liz a call. Professional, flexible, attentive to our wishes and a wonderful couple. Every step of the way, Jac and Liz were there for us, patiently answering questions, encouraging us as we worked on our vows, and then there was the ceremony. When Jac spoke to us about writing the ceremony, I must admit I was curious about what exactly was he writing. Most of the ceremony is pretty standard stuff, right? When he sent us the ceremony draft to review, we read them together and cried as we read the words which captured "our story" so vividly. One of the recurring comments we heard from our guest was the deeply personal story that was woven so exquisitely around touches of traditional vows and our own professions of love. Thank you, Jac, for such a beautifully worded ceremony. These are people who are so supportive and warm, you wish to continue the relationship beyond the wedding. Don't overlook the value that Jac or Liz can bring to your ceremony. Give them a call and you will be glad you did.Sent on 06/18/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thanks Barry for such wonderful words! It was an honor to get to know you and Kathy and be a part of your incredible day.

Sophia · Married on 05/06/2017
Liz was so great. We hit it off from the moment my fiance and I met her and immediately felt comfortable. She was very easy to work with, responsive and flexible to make our ceremony feel uniquely ours. Wouldn't have changed a thing about our wedding day, it was absolutely perfect!!! Thank you, Liz!Sent on 05/08/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you Sophia for such kind words. I loved working with you and Ben to provide you with such a lovely ceremony. You were indeed surrounded by love on your wedding day. One scene stands out in my mind--the groom and all his groomsmen standing in a circle to protect your attendants from the strong winds we were experiencing that day. It really shows the care and concern you surrounded yourself with that day.
Jackie · Married on 04/22/2017
Jac was amazing! Everyone commented about how awesome he was. We wanted our ceremony to be carefree and really represent us and he did that perfectly. I really liked how he wrote the ceremony and then let us read it before it was finalized. He was also extremely helpful with the day of the rehearsal and talking to other vendors. I would recommend to everyone getting married!Sent on 05/21/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you Jackie! It is so obvious that not only are you two deeply in love you are also best friends! Thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful love story.
Jessica · Married on 04/15/2017
This vendor was amazing. Jac and Liz were the only officiants that met with us for the first time in the comfort of their own home. They were the first of the officiants to respond to us as we were searching for an officiant. They did so much to make our wedding personal to us, and made us feel very special. The ceremony was wonderful, so much so that my very critical father wants to fly Jac out to Texas to officiate his and my mother's wedding renewal. Jac took our marriage license info and mailed it to us on our behalf so we wouldn't have to worry about it, and then he gave us a beautiful binder with our entire wedding ceremony and the script on beautiful paper, all put together for us to have forever to look back on our vows and what was said. Couldn't say enough about Jac and Liz Grimes. They helped make our ceremony a dream come true. SO many guests talked about how eloquent Jac spoke, and how our ceremony was the first one they came to where they were engaged the entire time!Sent on 04/17/2017
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Jessica, thanks for such wonderful words. It was an incredible day! The butterfly release added a stunning transformative touch to your ceremony and we loved working on that. Look forward to doing your father's vow renewal! Again, thank you for the great review--you were so incredible to work with!

Jac preformed my ceremony after less than 24 hours notice! At my rehersal the night before the officiant we had hired decided not to show up and as a bride I was a stressed freaking out mess!

My husband and I are SO thankful to have met Jac and Liz. They work together famously and want their couples to have the most unique ceremony possible. They are amazing people who truly want your ceremony to be you and not the same old same old cookie cutter ceremony. I truly enjoyed working with both of them and Jac was a star officiant for our wedding. Countless people came up to us and commented on how awesome Jac was. We had a perfect night and they were a HUGE part of that.Sent on 11/15/2016

MB · Married on 11/10/2016
I can not begin to explain what a perfect fit Rev. Liz was for us. I knew I didn't want a traditional ceremony, one that all of our guests have heard time and time again- and since we worked with Rev. Liz it wasn't! From the first time we met Rev. Jac and Rev. Liz we knew the hardest part of working with them was going to be deciding which one of them to choose! Every detail of our ceremony was tailored to us, our story, and the things that are important to us as a couple. Rev. Liz had great suggestions to get us started on our vows, and was super supportive of any and all changes we wanted to make. She even suggested a beer ceremony after learning of our love of craft beer.... we loved it (and so did our guests)! Of all the comments I have gotten about the wedding, the thing I've heard the most has been "Your officiant was wonderful. Such an original ceremony that fit the two of you perfectly! Where did you find her?" So if you want someone who cares about getting to know you and your partner so that your wedding ceremony is as special as your relationship is, then you've come to the right place.Sent on 12/22/2016
Thank you Rev. Liz for making our ceremony even better than we hoped it would be!

Amanda · Married on 10/29/2016
Both Rev. Grimes were wonderful to work with and made the process very easy for us, especially considering we were planning from out of state. The willingness of Rev. Jac Grimes to meet with us and truly make our ceremony our very own made creating the ceremony one of the most enjoyable aspects of our wedding planning process.Sent on 11/11/2016
We cannot recommend Rev. Grimes enough! My main caveat would be that since he is so special, only special and gracious individuals should seek him/them out because they deserve only the best as true, caring professionals.
All Faiths Wedding Officiants of the Triad's reply:Thank you for the kind words and recommendation.
