  • Flexibility:
  • I lost track of how many times people came up to me after the wedding saying how much they loved and connected with Jim’s sermon and ceremony. He was professional, kind, flexible and a welcome addition to our wedding. Even when we had AV equipment issues during the ceremony he took it in stride and kept the ceremony going with little to no interruption. He also took the time to visit with people after the ceremony and my dad (the son of a pastor) thoroughly enjoyed speaking with him. He was a hit and was happy to help us design the right ceremony for us. We consider ourselves exceptionally lucky that he was willing to officiant our wedding and would highly recommend him.
