Introduction: Besides being a lay minister, I am an award-winning professional writer, an experienced public speaker and a former standup comedian. 2022 marks my 15th year as an ordained wedding officiant. I am happy to perform secular as well as religious weddings, and have incorporated unity candles, sand and wine blending ceremonies, broom jumping and other special elements upon request. I do the homework and consult with you to ensure that your wedding ceremony is performed exactly to your wishes and personalized for you. After all, don't you want the most important day of your life to be a beautiful, lifelong memory? Uniting two people who love each other deeply in the bond of matrimony is a sacred, exhilarating experience. I never take my duties lightly, and every ceremony is unique and thrilling to me. Besides, who doesn't love a wedding? Everyone's happy, there's excitement and romance in the air...and when it’s over, you get cake!

If you want to have a memorable ceremony, please book with Jim! I have nothing but good things to say about Jim. Words can not describe what a wonderful job Jim did officiating my wedding. Multiple people have asked me where did I find Jim because he did such an excellent job. Very responsive and professional. We talked to Jim once over the phone, several emails exchanged the week of my wedding but when it came down to the actual ceremony, it was as if Jim has known my husband and I for a long time. Even the owner of our wedding venue came up to Jim more than once to ask for his business card.

Details: Wedding • Non-religious (no mention of God) • 101 - 150 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Working with Jim was honestly one of the highlights of our wedding and when we were looking for an officiant the choice was obvious. Throughout the whole process he guided us while also making sure we were getting everything that we wanted and he truly delivered. Jim took the time to meet and get to know us and incorporated our story into the ceremony while keeping it fun, upbeat and unique. We lost count of how many people came up to us at our reception telling us how great Jim was and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to not only work with Jim but get to know him a little as well. We cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Jim!

We had a great experience on our wedding day! He took the time to create a script for our ceremony that was so full of details about us that several guests thought he knew us personally.

Jim was phenomenal. Everyone loved him he kept things light and fun everyone held their attention throughout the ceremony and we could tell he put a lot of thought and time into making sure everything was personalized. He individually helped us edit our vows and made time for us when we needed him. His prompt responsiveness, friendly personality, and writing skills earned him 5 stars without a doubt. I highly recommend hiring this man to officiate your wedding. He is worth every penny. ❤

FAQs

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

    My fee is unique for every couple. I take every factor into consideration: travel, consultation, my participation in writing the vows or attending the rehearsal, and of course, writing and delivering the ceremony itself. So much more goes into an officiant's job than most couples understand. And my quote is always all-inclusive: I will NEVER return to a client and ask for additional funding.

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

    It's important to me to meet all my new clients face to face – in person if at all possible, through the magic of technology (Skype, FaceTime, etc.) if not. I want to chat for a few minutes, answer any questions they may have, and make certain that we're a great fit for each other. After all, this is probably the most important day in the life of the bride and groom: why shouldn't they have the perfect person for their ceremony?

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

    I am an ordained lay minister, licensed to perform marriages in Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.
