Hi James!!
Just wanted to say thank you for such a beautiful ceremony, it was exactly what Mike and I wanted and we can't thank you enough for making it so special for us.

Katie and Mike


I attended a small wedding you officiated. You made everyone feel warm and welcome to at times can be a very nerve-wracking event. A great mix of kind words and laughter. I would highly recommend James to any couple looking to get married in the future.

On October 3rd, 2015 you officiated our wedding you were amazing you survived the elements of the rain and cold while in the barn. You made every step of the way a breeze for our vows and you captured us as a couple through the readings and our vows. You made my husband and I feel comfortable and we loved your humor and how you kept the crowd engaged. We truly appreciated the custom parts of having my papa do a reading for us and how we wanted certain family members remembered. In closing I truly appreciated how we made this process our own with your help instead of a standard I do. James your extraordinary and you do amazing work, your a family friend and I appreciate everything you do and for our community.
Kindly,

Vanessa and Christopher

James officiated our outdoor wedding and it could not have gone better. James took us through the whole planning process and, once he got to know us as a couple, made suggestions about what he thought may work for us. It was so easy to work with James. At the actually ceremony, he was quite eloquent and authentic. It didn't feel phoney or like he was reading from a script. James put some humour into it, as well, which was great and put everyone at ease. It was a perfect day.
Thanks, James.

We had a casual, country wedding but with many guests who were used to elaborate ceremonies and the like. To this day they will comment on how memorable James made it with lighthearted humour, the perfect length of ceremony to suit the occasion and what seemed to be a knowledge of us as people (even though he didn't know us outside of officiating). James has an uncanny knack for reading the crowd, understanding the vibe of Bride and Groom and what they want their day to be and turning that into the right words for the occasion. Truly a talent when it comes to celebrating the lives of other people! I've been to other weddings with James as the officiant and it's the same deal every time. The best in the business and I've been to lots of weddings to compare!

Andrea

We were so happy to have James marry us. He was warm, personal, and delivered some comic relief when needed , which enhanced the ceremony. He is a very sincere gentleman and we would highly recommend him to officiate your wedding!

Michelle

Thank you for taking time out of your day to spend one and one time with us prior to our big day. We all got a true sense of each others personalities which made the ceremony more personal. You honoured our requests and had a beautiful easy to your ceremony duties. Thank you. 4 years married and still " hear" your words everyday in our marriage.

James officiated our wedding in 2008. From the first time we met him, both my husband and I knew James was the person we wanted to unite us to become one. James was so professional yet funny and helped guide us on the little things we needed to make sure were done. My husband and I chose to customize our vows and James never skipped a beat with ensuring our day was perfect. He even caught on quickly to realize the best man and groom had forgotten the rings in our room and cleverly came up with a diversion until the best man got back. No one even knew. We will be celebrating our 9 year anniversary this July and we are so glad we chose to have a non formal service that we customized every step of the way.
Thanks again James!
