Thumbtack Spotlight

Professional Nutrition Services of Rochester Inc

(40 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I became a Minister as a favor to a young woman I mentored. I totally loved performing the ceremony, and decided to join Thumbtack to see if I could be of service to other young couples performing the wedding of their dreams. The wonderful people I have met through these weddings, and the testimonials and referrals I receive, make it all worth while. I have been in a service business for over 30 years. Health and life coaching, as well as officiating, rounds out my life as I see people reach their personal, health and marriage goals. I appreciate their trust in me to make their day memorable and to keep them calm and in the moment.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

In my twenties, my health was not great. I suffered with chronic fatigue, sinusitis and migraines. None of the medical professionals could find any reason for my problems. I was introduced to a holistic direction, that I became a big advocate for it helped me within 6 weeks. That was over 30 years ago. I love what I do and becoming an officiant fit right into my holistic beliefs of body, mind and spirit.

  • Wedding Officiants and DJs

    Proctor Entertainment & Event Services

    (30 reviews)

    Proctor Entertainment dj'd our wedding a little over a month ago and they did amazing! From our first meeting we knew we wanted them for our event. Their prices are very reasonable and they're very easy to connect with. They're flexible, courteous and just do everything they can to help. Jessica is an amazing businesswoman, she listens to what you want, and does it. From the beginning I had a preferred method of contact because of work and she did it. It sounds simple, but the people that listen and do what you want are the type you want to do business with. Any questions, etc I had, she responded very quickly! They both have fun personalities and we would definitely recommend them for your event. Thank you Jessica and Kent!

  • Wedding Officiant

    Meaningful and Personalized Ceremonies

    (13 reviews)

    As this was the second marriage for both of us, my husband and I wanted a small, quiet ceremony. Finding a justice of the peace with availability proved more difficult than we thought, and we wanted something less cold and formal for our marriage anyway. Enter Ray Ammerman who, on short notice, wrote up a beautiful wedding presentation and traveled to our home for a private backyard ceremony. Ray was prompt in communication and arrival, professional, funny, and genuine. My husband and I were so pleased with how the ceremony went that we're still talking about it! It was perfect, exactly what we wanted, and I cannot thank Ray enough for making that possible. I highly recommend Ray for anyone's wedding ceremony. He helped make our day very special and memorable. Thank you so much, Ray!

  • Marriage Officiant

    Paul Pakusch, Wedding Officiant

    (5 reviews)

    My philosophy is that a couple should have the wedding ceremony of their dreams. I believe it is their day and they should start their marriage by celebrating it in the way that symbolizes the love that they have for each other. My job is to perform the ceremony of their wishes, without any prejudice as to what paths in life brought them to this occasion. In the planning stage of the ceremony, I offer suggestions of different ceremony options. They may choose any ceremony as written, bits and pieces of different ceremonies to customize one of their own, or add other elements that they might find on their own. Ceremonies may be religious or non-religious. They may also add such elements as a sand ceremony, candle ceremony, hand ceremony, glass bead ceremony, ring warming ceremony, chocolate ceremony, cosmos ceremony, tree ceremony, seed ceremony, and more. We may create a short ceremony or a long ceremony, depending on the couple's wishes. We will discuss all of these possibilities to create a very special day!
