  • I'm so glad we hired Father Jason to be our officiant. He was a calming presence throughout the planning process and helped us put together a nice ceremony when we weren't sure what to do. He was able to meet with us whenever we needed via video calls and nailed down all the details. During the ceremony he had a good loud speaking voice so everyone could hear and injected enough personality into the proceedings to keep things fun without distracting from the ceremony. He also didn't drone on and on during the homily like some officiants I've seen and got the ceremony finished on time. Several people at the wedding commented to me how much they enjoyed him at the ceremony, from young people to stodgy older religious people, so you know he was hitting the sweet spot. Couldn't be happier we went with him!
