Introduction: With over 900 ceremonies performed, you not only get professionalism, you get experience that will help make your day extra special and memorable. I could talk about me all day because I like me....but I invite you to read 3-4 reviews and let happy couples tell you what you get with this awesome dude. LOL I now offer REMOTE SERVICES where we can perform your marriage ceremony via Facetime, Skype or Zoom (or something similar). This new digital age has opened up brand new possibilities when time and distance are a concern. Two items of business in closing....the fee listed does NOT include travel and will likely change. I just want you to know that upfront so I don't seem like a used car salesman. LOL Honesty is very important to me. Secondly, I can and will attend rehearsal if you must have me there but I will gladly show you how to have a great rehearsal without me and save that extra money for your honeymoon :) Call me today between 9am and midnight at the number listed and let's make your day the BEST DAY EVER.

Officiant James Hamp survived our wedding. What a day to remember? Officant James Hamp - Thank you so much for your professionalism, perseverance, and jocosity. Our entire family loved your services.

Wedding Officiant

From the start pastor Hamp was very responsive. He was so reassuring from the start. On my wedding day he came in and help loosen up the tension caused by nerves. He was everything we needed in an officiant. The review wanted us to only pick three items to describe his work but I can’t pick only three he was wonderful.

Thank you Adrianna :) I think you're the first bride to send her review on her honeymoon LOL They must have been serving you RedBull or some other energy drink instead of Sparkling Grape Juice. :) I truly enjoyed myself and was honored to serve you and Kevin. Let's renew these in about 50 years. :) (gotta beat your parent's record) LOL Take care and give each other a big hug for me. Blessings to you and your home for years to come. <3

OH my where do I start Mr. Hamp was contacted at the last minute after our first officiant failed to respond. Not only was he understanding of the present situation, he responded in a timely manner and had a detailed contract in place. We spoke with Mr. Hamp over the phone and booked him without an in person meet which made us a little nervous. On the day of our event he was on time, met with my husband and I to discuss minor details prior to the start of the event, and performed our ceremony so well that my guests thought he was our family minister lol. Mr Hamp also made sure the remainder of the wedding flowed properly and made us feel at ease. We are so pleased with his services and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Who is that guy she's talking about? Oh wait, that's me!! LOL I truly enjoyed serving you and Marcus and the family. Things went off pretty smoothly...almost like we had practiced it hahaha Thanks again and blessings to you all <3

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My Average Fee varies depending on when your ceremony is and what city it will be held in. Quotes provided include PERFORMING the CEREMONY, all TRAVEL related expenses, assistance in Writing Your VOWS, and PROCESSING your MARRIAGE LICENSE following the ceremony. If you receive a quote that is lower, please allow me the opportunity to meet or beat it. I am very flexible and considerate. I will do whatever it takes to earn the honor to serve you on your special day. Please ask about special discounts for Active Duty Servicemembers, Veterans, First Responders and Senior Citizens. Deposit/Payments can be made via Apple Pay, Cash App, Venmo, PayPal or by calling your credit/debit card info in. Cash is acceptable for deposits if we are able to meet in person prior to your ceremony. A receipt for Cash will be provided upon request. If you do not have any of the above cards or apps, we can even accept WalMart to WalMart payments as well as Western Union and MoneyGram payments. Whatever works best and is most convenient for you. Deposits are non-refundable but in certain situations, your deposit can be kept on record for up to 1 year from your original wedding date should circumstances change. Additional services available are (rates vary): 1) Rehearsal 2) Premarital Counseling 3) Day of Coordination Services 4) Master of Ceremonies

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once the couple has posted their deposit, I will work with the couple...usually the bride (because you know who's day it is, right? LOL)...to prepare a detailed script of the ceremony so you don't actually need me to attend rehearsal. I will gladly attend but there is an added fee to do so. We will make this day your best day ever. I will suggest ideas but the couple has the final say so. It's kind of like Burger King...you CAN and WILL "have it your way." LOL

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My Army career instilled unparalleled professionalism enhanced by precise attention to detail. With over 650 weddings performed, you need someone that has "been there and done that" and has the experience to help you make your wedding the most wonderful and memorable (in the good sense) event of your lifetime. This attention to detail will benefit you and your fiance on your special day.
