I cannot begin to say how HAPPY I was to have found Fr. Jim to be our officiant for our wedding last month. After our first meeting (which lasted 2 hours!) to our wedding day, Fr. Jim is someone who just makes you feel at ease and is a truly special person. He did an exceptional job with our wedding ceremony, and we were so happy to have found a Catholic priest for our outdoor wedding. We received so many compliments after the ceremony and people thought that he had been my childhood priest and had known us for years based on how he spoke and how personal he made his homily, etc. They also have a very easy to use website, where we were able to customize and choose how we wanted to say our vows, the wording for certain blessings, and select our readings. Overall, Fr. Jim made our wedding day very special and I will forever be grateful for that.

Father Jim is simply the best. He took the time to get to know the bride and groom. He added the right amount of humor and kept the ceremony interesting and kept the crowd engaged while making it very meaningful. It was a great balance.

Fr. Jim gave us not only religious guidance but also premarital counseling which helped us focus on getting married and not just planning the wedding. We had a Catholic nuptial mass outside of church which is a little challenging but he made it happen! He made the ceremony fun and light hearted. As a Filipino bride, I really appreciate him being able to incorporate traditional Filipino rituals during the ceremony. BIG THUMBS UP!

Father Jim did an excellent job officiating our wedding. He blended sincerity with humor sharing tips for a happy marriage that we are already using, and reaping the benefits! Our wedding guests continually commented on how much they also appreciated his style, and how he stood out amongst other priests they had been exposed to over the years for his genuine simple messages, keeping the tone light and laughable, when appropriate. A truly fantastic job by Father Jim! We were blessed to have him play a big part in our special day.
