Jeff focused on our day and made it very special. He made the entire experience so easy, calm and comfortable yet dignified. I highly recommend Jeff to any wedding because he added something we didn’t know we needed. Thank you Jeff!

Jeff was amazing! We wanted a simple, quick wedding sense we could only do it with immediate family and he did such a wonderful job. My husband talks about him all the time saying how relaxed he made him feel up there before I came down. He did an amazing job making it fun but serious at same time. You are suppose to enjoy your wedding and we absolutely did. We can not thank you enough Jeff for helping us out and making it how we imagined.

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!

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!!

  • 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 20 years and have worked with over 100 couples. I also offer premarital counseling and post-marital counseling ($75/60-minute session), because everyone plans to get married, but most don't give much thought to how they will stay married.
