Introduction: [[ NOTE: ]] With the current concerns related to COVID-19, we want you to know: We're committed to being as flexible as humanly possible regarding changes in your plans for your wedding day. We're happy to "meet' with you via Zoom or Skype in place of an in person meeting if you wish. If your re-scheduled wedding day lands on a day when I'm committed to another couple - my wife is also a Wedding Officiant! We've got back up! If your wedding gets postponed, but you still want to have a "tiny wedding" on your original date, I'm happy to come to your home and maintain safe social distancing according to local regulations while officiating an intimate ceremony for you. If your wedding gets postponed to a date when neither of us is available to serve you, we will fully refund any deposit you have paid to us. - - - - - - - - - I believe that officiating a wedding is a unique privilege. I especially enjoy getting acquainted with the "Nearly-Weds" so I can understand not only their preferences for the ceremony, but also their personalities. I love it when wedding guests tell me it sounded like I'd known the couple for years. I love the challenge of crafting a ceremony that reflects just the right balance of respect, sentiment, and humor for a couple. Meeting nearly-weds and hearing of their heartfelt love for one another delights me and regularly reminds me of the brilliant diversity of souls in this universe. Short of birthing babies, what could be more fun?!

Sean M.

Wedding Officiant

TJ Sweeney was a very personable and professional officiant for our wedding! We felt like we knew him for years! He was able to adapt to all changes we made as we went along. He really seemed to know us! He made the exchange of our vows as easy and relaxed as possible. Family complimented on how beautiful our ceremony was and what an extraordinary job the officiant did! Thank you TJ!

T.J did an amazing job. We knew he was the man to officiate our wedding the moment we had a Zoom call with him. He’s very personable and made us feel comfortable. He guided us and our beautiful ceremony, not to mention all our guests loved him!! Thank you for helping us end 2020 with a banggggg!

Dear Abi & Ryan, There was no hiding the fact that I had a great time getting acquainted with you both. Your wedding day was wonderful mix of laughter and love. I often get to meet the in-laws at a wedding, but I'm REALLY blessed that I got to meet the Outlaws. Congratulations!

Wedding Officiant

A very personable Officiant. He made sure to personalize our wedding to our needs. He arrived an hour ahead of time to make sure everything is on track & provided guidance throughout the ceremony. I highly recommend Tim, thank you for customizing my wedding and making sure we were comfortable and keeping us smiling through our ceremony. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather work with. God bless you.

Wedding Officiant

His recommendations do him no justice. He his AMAZING, i could not have asked for a better officiant for my wedding. We had a small back yard ceremony so we feel like we received the best T.J had to offer. His time, his personality, his passion, and the time he took to personalize our vows making our love story was the topping on the cake. I highly recommend him to anyone. Al the other reviews we read were spot on, I am happy we selected him. He will not disappoint....

Wedding Officiant

It was an absolute pleasure meeting TJ this past weekend. He has my highest recommendation! My fiancée and I were in search for an officiant for our elopement approximately 1 month ago. We came across TJ, contacted him, and he immediately responded to our inquiry. We scheduled a zoom meeting for 1-2 weeks later and enjoyed getting to know him and discussing details of our relationship with him. His very personable and affable nature put as at complete ease. On the day of our elopement, he arrived early and reviewed the details with us once again. He put us at ease with his calming demeanor and reassuring attitude. His words during the ceremony were SO thoughtful, personal to our relationship, and reflected our values. He truly exceeded all expectations we had for the ceremony. He’s not only a great officiant, but also appears to be a fantastic person overall!
T. J. Sweeney's reply
What a wonderful day! Thank you for "letting me in" on the sweet, simple, secret ceremony on the hill. It was an honor AND a pleasure to be part of your lovely wedding. You are both very gracious and generous people and I'm so glad you found each other (and me!) Love & light always, TJ

FAQs

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

    No additional fees beyond the quote. My quote covers a consultation so that I can understand your preferences and personalities. Then I can really write a ceremony that suits you both. I can email you a draft, for your approval and make whatever edits you request. I'll conduct a rehearsal (if that's indicated in your request) and show up early on the day of the ceremony so everything goes as smoothly as possible. After the ceremony, I'll complete, sign and mail all indicated paperwork. Ask about our ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY DISCOUNT.

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

    I love to meet with "Nearly-Weds" and get acquainted so that I can create a ceremony that reflects their unique personalities. So a face-to-face or Skype consultation usually gets the process started. I email a draft to the couple (unless they prefer to be surprised) and make whatever adjustments until it's "just right" for both of them.

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

    As an educator and clinician I have always sought to connect with and understand those I serve. My fondness for the performing arts contributes to the joy I find while celebrating a wedding.
