Pastor Jeff was there for us when we were left without an officiant. Came to our home, introduced himself, and got to know us pretty well in that time. He made our wedding something we will always remember, and has a special knack for knowing how to make sure the ceremony is just how you want it. Spectacular job all the way around!Oct 20, 2019Verified
Jeff was the best! Prior to our wedding we had only FaceTimed with him once. Our first official time meeting in person was the day of our wedding. Prior to that he was so easy to get ahold of and quick to respond. During the ceremony you would've thought he had been our pastor our whole lives. Everyone even kept commenting that they thought we had known him for awhile. He made jokes and did not make it awkward at all. We had the best time with him. I highly recommend him!!Aug 31, 2017Verified

If we could pack up and take Jeff with us for our ceremony in Colorado we would! He's amazing! We had a small commitment ceremony for family who couldn't come to our destination wedding. The flowers were beautiful, the music was perfect, but your Officiant is everything!!!! Jeff made the event a moment to talk about and remember for eternity. When the love dust settles, it won't be the cake and flowers that is reflected on as much as it will be the words spoken and designated as your vows. Jeff is amazing.Aug 21, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I love working with people as they prepare for a lifetime together. Rather than quoting low and then adding on a bunch of fees (mileage, rehearsals, consultations, etc), I have a set price of $250, and that's ALL INCLUSIVE. If you want custom vows, it's included. If you want to meet multiple times to plan (or just need a hug), it's included. If your mom wants to call me and tell me how special you are, it's included!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I think it's important for everyone to feel comfortable and positive about working together. Therefore, I offer a no-obligation "first date" to get to know each other and talk about vision/expectations for the wedding. If everything feels right, you can book your date by paying the $250 fee.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been in pastoral ministry for 17 years and have worked with over 100 couples. I also offer premarital counseling and post-marital counseling ($100/60-minute session), because everyone plans to get married, but most don't give much thought to how they will stay married.
