  • Reverend Jim Mooney is one of the most special people my husband and I have ever met. Being engaged and planning a wedding is a exciting yet stressful time, with a lot of decision-making. We knew we wanted to have our ceremony onsite at our beautiful venue but there was a lot to figure out! We were so fortunate to have had Jim Rooney referred to us. Having him part of this journey and our big day was a gift in every way. From our first conversation, he made us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions. We loved visiting Beacon Hermitage and the journey he took us on in preparation for our ceremony. So many of our guests said that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended, traditional yet unique to us in so many ways, and asked if Jim had known us personally beforehand! We are blessed to have started our marriage with an unforgettable and magical ceremony led by Jim.
