Introduction: I fully customize each ceremony for the couple. You as a couple get full approval on the ceremony script. I send the personalized script to each couple after we either meet or chat on the phone. My pricing is all inclusive to include rehearsals, meetings in person, ceremony revisions, and calls. I am always available to the couple for their special day. I have never missed a wedding or canceled on a couple. I love watching the joy in the eyes of the Bride and Groom as they are getting married. It is an honor to be part of a couple's special day. After almost 10 years and close to 800 weddings I thought I would reflect back on all the different ceremonies that I have done. In addition to the usual parts of a wedding I have done: Unity Candle Unity Sand Unity Cross Unity Cords Communion Wine and Love Letter box Jumping the broom 13 Coins The lasso I’ve done weddings as small as just me and the bride to groom to 100’s of people attending. I’ve been to almost every wedding venue in North Texas. Some of these multiple times. I have been booked as far out as a year and on occasion filled in at the last moment for pastors that canceled at the last minute.

It was truly an Honor and Privilege to have Mr. James as our Wedding Official at our Ceremony.

Wedding Officiant

James Wahl was amazing. He was early and checking on the bride and groom to see if they needed anything but also was there any charges to the wedding that he needed to know. Mother of the bride got sick and he was checking on her and just being a part of the family unite and we loved that. The service was beautiful and his words were heart felt. Our Bride and Groom were so pleased and loved working with him. If you are looking for a officiant stop looking and use James Wahl, his heart and love for the job is shown from the first time you talk to him.

Wedding Officiant

We are so glad we chose Jim to be our officiant. We met many months ago to go over our ceremony, what style we were looking for, and Jim was extremely helpful in the process. Throughout wedding planning, Jim would always respond quickly to emails, adjustments, or requests. He was gracious enough to lead the wedding party in a walk through at rehearsal night. The big day arrived, and Jim was there early and prepared. The ceremony went as planned and it was wonderful! Thank you so much!

Jim officiated my wedding last weekend. We are still so happy that he was there for us. He’s very personable and organized. He made us feel comfortable and in good hands. You won’t have anything to worry about. I highly recommend him for officiating your special day!

FAQs

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

    I offer a discount to first responders and military active and veterans. I also offer a discount for weddings that are small, typically less than 10 people.

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

    After you decide to hire me I will create a draft ceremony for you to review. Each ceremony is personlized to the couple and approved by the couple prior to the ceremony. I typically like to meet the couple beforehand, however I do understand that we all lead busy lives. If we can't meet prior to the ceremony I will be there early to work with you both. My fee is all inclusive and I don't expect to be paid until after the ceremony

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

    I am an Ordained Pastor and a college graduate.
