From the moment we met Jim for an initial meeting at Starbucks we knew that he would be the perfect fit for our ceremony. Jim took the time to get to know us and explain each part of the ceremony. As people who are not the most outgoing, my husband and I knew we didn't want to be anxious about excessive speaking during our ceremony. Jim gave wonderful suggestions and we felt very comfortable going into the ceremony! During our rehearsal Jim explained the ceremony perfectly to us, our bridal party and family members. Everyone knew exactly what to do and where to go! On the actual wedding day I could not have been happier with how our ceremony went. It was personal and sweet- just what I wanted! Jim was kind enough to stay after the ceremony to take some pictures with us and spend time conversing with our family during cocktail hour. If you are looking for an officiant for your wedding that is thoughtful, professional and personable definitely go with Jim!Sent on 11/29/2017

Jim was great. We had a small, intimate ceremony without rehearsal and he was just what we needed to pull it all together. From suggestions to planning and finishing touches, he was a tremendous help. You'll be getting a lot of experience if you hire him. I;m glad we did. Thanks Jim!Sent on 06/03/2019

Jim is very personable and gets along well with everyone. We provided him information about us and the kind of message we wanted to have in our ceremony and he nailed it. Everyone raved about the ceremony!Sent on 04/22/2019

Jim was amazing!
Jim was such a great officiant! He was very quick to respond to any questions. He made our ceremony very personal. From the first time that my husband and I met him at our initial meeting, we knew that he would be the perfect man to marry us. 5 Stars!!!Sent on 08/02/2019

A great experience. Jim was so wonderful and helped to make our day special. He was very accommodating and even was willing to change the date at the last minute when I was worried about the rain. He sat with me and let me customize our ceremony to give us just what we wanted for our wedding. I don’t plan on getting married again lol but if I did I would hire loving celebrations again. Very pleased.Sent on 07/23/2019

Jim was so to great to work with! He helped us decide how we wanted our ceremony to go when we had no idea what we were doing. Our ceremony was short and sweet but still meaningful, and Jim was good going along with that. He was very genuine and kind. We also did counseling with him which was a nice experience and worthwhile! Highly recommend!Sent on 06/27/2019

We love Jim!
Jim was such a great officiant. We had a non religious ceremony and he was so helpful in working with us to make it uniquely ours. For the parts we didn't plan out ourselves, Jim did a great job creating those. For the parts we did, he did great on those also! Thank you so much Jim, you were amazing!!!!Sent on 07/09/2019

Jim is very experienced and flexible who will make planning your ceremony a breeze. Even though I did not have a rehearsal dinner and was not able to rehearsal the day of (was doing makeup) he still managed to instruct everyone to be where they are needed and had everything under control. His speech was nothing but lovely and went so well with the vibe of the wedding. Future bride, look no further, Jim is your officiant!Sent on 05/31/2019

Flexible, professional and kind
We spoke to Jim via video chat initially and felt great about asking him to our officiant. We lived out of town and were not able to meet with him in person until the wedding day. He answered all our questions, incorporated our changes as they happened, showed up early and executed the kind of ceremony we wanted. It was tailored and perfect for us. We would highly recommend him.Sent on 05/14/2019

Happily wed by Jim!
Jim supplied all the confidence and command of a room needed for an unrehearsed ceremony! Since we didn't have a rehearsal he took charge of going over a few things with my father before the ceremony. It was great to know we had someone we did not have to worry about at all as he was consistently punctual, well dressed and polite to everyone. Jim was very accommodating to any requests we had regarding ceremony style. His experience shone with suggestions to meet any quirks of our particular ceremony - For example, without a bridal party, who does the bouquet get handed off to? To my mother in the front row. With a small ceremony he had great ideas for the music and timing to allow the intro song to play a bit longer. We are so happy that Jim officiated our wedding; He was warm with all of our family and friends as well. Thanks Jim for helping us get hitched!Sent on 04/30/2019

Made my day easier
Jim was everything I could ask for as an officiant, he was super helpful at the rehearsal as well as the wedding ceremony. It was a rainy and windy day, my unity candle wouldn’t light up, Jim was very calm and our ceremony still went very well. He was very considerate to ask what color of suit we wanted him to wear. I’m very happy that we chose Jim.Sent on 04/22/2019

Definitely have to recommend going with Loving celebrations if you need an officiant! He was super easy to work with and get ahold of, even last minute.Sent on 04/22/2019
He made the rehearsal run very smoothly and left nothing for me to worry about on the day of.
I also loved that he had a lot of options for his own outfit so that he’d look good with whatever my wedding party was wearing. I added pictures to show how great he was able to match my wedding party!

Jim is the BEST
Jim was amazing from the very first moment. My fiancé and I met with him at a Starbucks and instantly knew he was the person we wanted to share this special moment with. He had a calm presence that put us both at ease. He was organized and detailed yet warm and flexible. My fiancé loved having him by his side right before the ceremony, saying Jim was calming and encouraging. The ceremony was beautiful, tailored perfectly to us and our story. We could not imagine our day without Jim!! He is a blessing to us and to our marriage. There isn’t a better officiant out there!Sent on 03/31/2019
