Introduction: I am an ordained pastor with 30 years of ministry experience, and a compassionate, energetic, upbeat personality. I have had the joy of performing more than 150 weddings in English and Spanish over the years. I have been officiating through Thumbtack.com since March of 2020 and am honored to have been awarded the coveted "Top Pro" status in both 2020 and 2021. Every ceremony is personal and special to me, and I give my very best to every service I officiate. I have 2 main goals as your wedding officiant: 1) to provide you with a customized ceremony that you and your spouse will love and fondly remember, and 2) for you to relax and enjoy your wedding ceremony as I guide you through the service. You, your fiancé and I will collaborate together to design your personalized ceremony. I can also provide premarital counseling and help with vows. Thank you in advance for considering me as your wedding officiant. Other services I offer include quinceañeras, funeral, burial, and celebration of life ceremonies. NOTE REGARDING COVID: As of April 8, 2021, I have received both Pfizer vaccines. I will also follow whatever precautions my clients wish me to observe.

Wedding Officiant

We found pastor Jeff kind of last-minute and he did an AMAZING job officiating our wedding! Our guests raved about how beautiful our ceremony was! In preparation for our big day, he made it easy to communicate with him and was very accommodating. He was very easy to get a hold of if need be. 10/10 would recommend him!

Wedding Officiant

Pastor Jeff Ware is extremely professional and a true man of faith. I had the honor of him officiating our wedding , and although it was a very small and intimate gathering of a few people , his words echoed and filled the space as though there were more amongst us that day. His words were not just crafted in a way to give us light, but brought us laughter and tears. His energy transcended the room , and as he spoke to us about the covenant of marriage , it came from a place of personal knowledge, and faith . I felt truly blessed and honored to have him there that day, his blessings, and proving to us our vows framed as a remembrance of the commitment of covenant.

Wedding Officiant

Jeff Ware was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. We had a very tight timeline and Jeff was able to meet our needs. His layout of the service let us pick the elements that were most important to us. We were both extremely grateful for his part in making our wedding day wonderful.
