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.

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.
and I were married in 2007 and James officiated our wedding. Our day
wouldn't have been complete without him! He made us feel so comfortable
and his personal touches on the day made it all that more special!"
You made our wedding fun! We had so many compliments
on our ceremony. It was short but so meaningful it was exactly what we

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.

We were absolutely thrilled to have
James officiate our wedding. A perfect amount professionalism, light
humour an love to makr our day that much more special.
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.
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
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!
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.
We got so many compliments after our ceremony!
Everyone loved how light and fun it was! Had all the guests laughing and
crying through a ceremony that felt so personal!
Thank you. Thank
you. Thank you!
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!
