    If I could give Jim 10000 stars, I would!!! He was so kind and genuine throughout the entire process. It felt like family was marrying us. He helped personalize our ceremony and vows and it couldn't have been more beautiful. We are so lucky to have been married by Jim and we wish we could do it over and over again!!!

    Jim married my husband and I on Valentines Day of this year. Things couldn't have gone any better. He met with us a week ahead to get to know us and hear our story. We had a very small intimate wedding. The ceremony was perfect, very personal, yet very professional. I feel like we have made a new friend and not just a new acquaintance.

    We were going to write our own vows and at the last moments I told Jim that we didn't write our own. He said no problem he could handle it. His words were great. He did an awsome job. Everyone at the wedding was asking who he was and where he came from because they all thought he did a great job. He was easy to work with. I will use him for my next wedding also. Just joking I am married for life. We appreciated him very much.

    Jim officiated our wedding, and we could not have a picked a better person. He met with us beforehand to see what my husband and I are all about, and tailored our ceremony perfectly to us. He was kind, professional, and very supportive. I had no doubts the ceremony was going to be perfect in his hands, and it definitely turned out that way. We searched for awhile to find someone that was the right fit, and Jim was perfect.

    Ouch! Dina I regret your review, especially since I have never met you or worked with you? You did place your wedding ceremony out for bid on Thumbtack receiving my bid and 5 others. I bid on it with all good intentions and the date open at THAT time. When I did not hear back from you for one month, most often happens with a time lapse, it means that a couple has decided to chose another officiant. No big deal! Then I was surprised when you contacted me one month later asking to hire me. I respectfully responded with my best wishes but regrets in that another couple had chosen that date. That is what happened. Again I wish you the best in your marriage and life, but not sure your review reflects accurately. Kindest Regards, Jim

    I highly recommend Jim Mustain! My husband and I went through premarital counseling with him and he performed our wedding ceremony. Going into counseling as most we were a little nervous. However, after our first meeting we looked forward to every visit! Jim made us feel comfortable as we all shared laughter and tears. Prior to counseling, faith was the one topic that my husband and I had not really dived into. There were uncertainties and confusion when speaking about God. Jim was not judgmental nor did he push faith on us. Instead he offered guidance and opened the door for us to talk about it. Jim really listened to our ideas and wants for our ceremony as it involved our children. When we were unsure of how something should go, he offered several ideas to help us out. Our ceremony was so touching and a huge part of that is because of Jim. We cannot say enough amazing things about him and are beyond blessed that our paths crossed with Mr. & Mrs. Mustain!

    We used Jim for our pre-marital counseling and for our ceremony. He was very responsive to all our requests and was always on time. For the marital counseling, he asked relevant, useful questions that lead to thought provoking answers. His experience and knowledge in the field were evident and helpful. I was also very happy with Jim's willingness to work with us on the ceremony. We had a specific idea of what we wanted in some places, and no idea in others. Jim was able to give us good advice on the parts we were unsure about, and happy to follow our wishes in the parts we were adamant about. Overall, I'm very happy with his service, and if I had the opportunity to do it again, I would still work with Jim.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We make contact via Thumbtack. I am always available to talk by phone, email, text, etc.. whichever is best for you. Once you hire me I have you fill out an online wedding questionnaire that provides all the details (or those you know) about the ceremony. We meet for coffee to get to know one another and plan out the ceremony. Wedding rehearsal (if requested) Wedding ceremony (I arrive 30 minutes in advance) Sign the marriage license.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am certified in using a renown pre-marital and marriage assessment tool by the name of Prepare & Enrich. This tool helps build and maintain vibrant marriages. I as well am part of the State of Texas marriage initiative entitled Two-gether in Texas. Participation in these organizations keeps me up to speed on the best training and tools
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Prices vary on the services provided and time required. It can range from $75-250. I am always glad to give an individual quotes. The cost of the marriage license can be discounted if you do premarital counseling with a Texas Marriage Initiative minister, which I am. You can save $60 on the cost of your license.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It came with the turf! Being an ordained minister for over 30-years it is one of the functions of the role. For me, I didn't know how much I would enjoy working with couples! t have always had a passion to help and serve people.
What types of customers have you worked with?
It runs the gamut! All ages, ethnicities, languages, professions, religious and spiritual backgrounds, and backgrounds. The services have varied from premarital counseling, wedding ceremony planning, and marriage counseling.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am currently working with a couple who have identified the need for better communication and conflict resolution skills to bring into their marriage. Through our conversations together and tools I have given them they are making great progress!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure they listen to what you want and that you feel comfortable with them. Chemistry is key!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Couples vary based on their personalities and how detailed they are in wedding planning. In our internet savvy world there are many free and wonderful websites and tools to assist in planning a wedding. In selecting a wedding officiant I would make sure that there is a chemistry and fit and that the officiant is experienced and can listen and help guide the couple as needed.
