Good Morning,
Chris & I just wanted to extend our greatest THANK YOU for this past weekend.  All the work and dedication you put into our wedding, did not go unnoticed.  We received so many compliments and we are so grateful for your hard work that made our day so extremely special.  You will always hold a wonderful spot in our lives and we will make sure to tell EVERYONE about you!  You are truly wonderful.

.5.0 Great Service

James did an absolutely wonderful job with our wedding ceremony.  He made sure to meet with us beforehand to understand what we wanted, and get acquainted.  We really like his easygoing personality!  He wrote us a beautiful ceremony (I am Unitarian, and my husband is Lutheran).  He and his partner, Jean, were helpful and provided ideas when asked.  He is very knowledgeable about weddings and religion.  At our grooms dinner, he did a ceremony rehearsal so everyone knew where to stand.  All around wonderful service for the price he charges.
  Thank you James!

Mr. and Mrs. Baasch

We absolutely loved having James officiate for both our May 2020 wedding and our May 2021 vow renewal!!  Our plans changed last minute in 2020 and James was very understanding and accommodating.  If we ever have a vow renewal again in the future, he will be the first person we contact.

James and Jean exceeded our expectations. They were prompt in discussing details, and made planning the ceremony so much easier and it turned our absolutely perfect. They calmed our nerves, made us laugh, and ensured that we had the best day ever. I would and will recommend them to everyone that comes my way. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

James and Jean were helpful in every step of our ceremony planning process.  They were always responsive to our questions, and met with us multiple times to make sure all the details were taken into account.  We enjoyed their personality and presence, which added intimacy to an already beautiful ceremony.  We highly recommend them to anyone looking for an Officiant for their wedding day!
Thank you to both of you again!
Lots of love,
