I’m the father of the bride at one of Mr. Greathouse’s recent (8/14/20) weddings. My daughter and new son-in-law found and hired Mr. Greathouse probably the way you’re searching right now. My first meeting with him was at the rehearsal dinner. There I asked him if he had a plan. You see, I’d recently attended a wedding where an absolutely horrible officiant really botched my friend’s daughter’s special day.

Mr. Greathouse assured me he had a plan. I thought the rehearsal went well and we all looked forward to the big day. We were blessed with a perfect weather day, in a perfect setting, and Mr. Greathouse, true to his word, had a plan.

Mr. Greathouse conducted an absolutely beautiful ceremony. Through his process of getting to know my daughter and her fiance he put together an engaging, thoughtful, and very personal ceremony. All our friends commented about Mr. Greathouse’s wonderful job. I’m sure he’ll hear from some of the families in attendance as they prepare for their special day. All I can say to you, the reader of this testimonial, is that you will be totally thrilled with Mr. Greathouse and his plan.

Tim is absolutely amazing! We highly recommend him to anyone who wants a stress free ceremony! He gave us a quick run down before the ceremony and was very nice and easy to talk to! He is very personable and welcoming. He does a great job and listens to any requests you may have.

Vanessa & Andrew January 5th, 2020

From the beginning of wedding planning we were looking for a personalized and meaningful wedding ceremony. We wanted our officiant to make the focus of the ceremony on the two of us, the commitment we were making to on another, and a reflection of our relationship. We had been to many weddings where the officiant fumbled over names, told anecdotes that felt out of place, or were solely focused on religion.

Once we met Tim we knew he was the right choice for us. He has a warm, welcoming, and relaxed personality. Tim took the idea of what we wanted and brought it to life. His questionnaire was through and let us reflect on the relationship we built.

He did an amazing job on the wedding day. He helped us feel calm and prepared for our vows. We had so many compliments on the ceremony, Tim’s demeanor, and many people thought we had a friend marry us.

We are so happy we chose Tim to marry us. The ceremony is what we reflect on together the most and we cannot recommend him enough.

Perfect. That is the word I have chosen to describe my experience with Tim. I interviewed about 7 officiants before I found Tim. From the first time speaking with Tim (probably the first few minutes), I knew he was the officiant for my husband and I. We were looking for a less formal, less religious, unconventional personality to marry us. Our relationship is corky and lively and we needed someone who could match, understand and encompass our passion into our ceremony . We wanted our ceremony to be about us and our amazing love story, leaving religion and other traditional ceremony rituals aside. Tim did exactly that! He was able to take our questionnaires, our stories and our conversations, and turn them into a beautifully worded and delivered presentation. He has an exceptional way with words, and his deliverance of those words is captivating and engaging; our guests were enamored with Tim and our ceremony. Tim also has this superpower of being able to calm your nerves; he just senses it. He was able to mute his mic in certain areas of the ceremony and just speak directly to us. This allowed us not to feel uneasy or uptight. We were able to escape from our nerves and concentrate on the conversation – like it was just us three there. Tim also was very punctual, very natural and genuine with his words and our guests, and truly enjoys his profession. We could sit and talk with Tim for hours; he’s a great guy, real great guy! Because of Tim, my ceremony was one thing I didn’t have to stress or have any concerns about. Thank you Tim, for making our day PERFECT. We will see you soon!

Love and Brandon January 4th, 2016

When we decided on a wedding officiant, we knew exactly who we wanted. Love is a wedding professional (in the business of happily ever afters), and she had seen Tim in action at a wedding she worked. After a few extremely dorky jokes were exchanged, a plan was formed: that of forcing Tim to be our officiant. We weren’t even engaged at the time! When the question was asked, one of the first vendors we booked was Tim, he’s a great guy, but in high demand. Luckily, we were planning a while ahead.

Prior to the wedding we met a couple of different times. Once for the booking, once to hammer down the details – over breakfast at Fred’s diner, with our children – that was fun. He was completely cool through it all.

At the wedding, he showed up early, walked us through the I do’s, and COMPLETELY blew us away with the ceremony. Remember those dorky jokes mentioned earlier? Yes, well, we gave him a few quotes from our favorite Sci-Fi shows and he wove them in as if they were the most romantic lyrical poetry you had ever heard. He walked us through our hand-fasting like a boss, and even attempted to help Love when she realized she forgot to make up promises for it.

All in all, we HIGHLY suggest Tim to everyone we meet. Need an officiant, go for Tim. Need some laughs, Tim’s your guy. Want something serious and heartfelt, yup, still Tim. You can’t go wrong with this guy.

Thanks Tim for the AWESOME launch to our life together. May many, many others be lucky enough to have you perform their ceremony because it is no doubt you have a gift for it. – Mary

I stumbled across Tim when searching for a secular wedding officiant. Tim was wonderful to work with from the start! He was always available to answer any questions or address any concerns that I had throughout the planning process, via either phone, e-mail, or Facebook.

The ceremony was incredibly personal. It was really like Tim had known us for years! He made the ceremony all about us and our journey together as a couple.

We chose the non-traditional vows that he offers, which were just perfect! They were modern and felt so meaningful. Tim made us feel like we were the only ones in the room while speaking our vows to one another.

The ceremony was my husband’s favorite part of the day, and if he gives the stamp of approval, you know it must be good!

Highly, highly recommended!

Candace Thompson October 20th, 2013

Wedding planning is stressful!!! The last thing we waited to do was to find someone to marry us. After several recommendations we decide to contact Tim. After our first conversation I knew he was a perfect fit for us and we decided to book our date with him. Throughout the entire process and right up to the day of the wedding he helped to put us at ease and helped assure everything would go perfectly. The day of the wedding he ran into a bit of car trouble but still made it on time and pulled off an amazing ceremony for us. Can’t say enough good things. You rock Tim!!!! For anyone looking for a unique, funny, well thought out and put together ceremony Tim is your guy.

Jodi Pollack October 1st, 2013

This guy is awesome! Somehow without even knowing us, Tim knew us. The ceremony was amazing. With all of the other little details about the day you kind of forget about how important the words and the ceremony are, when in fact that’s the point of the whole day. No need to worry though, because Tim doesn’t forget how important it is and knows the perfect things to say. I loved our ceremony, and cannot wait to get the video to relive it all over again. Thank you Tim for making it perfect.

Jon Fankhauser September 25th, 2013

I would recommend Tim because he eased our nerves and made the ceremony about us and people commented on that afterwards. Also, he took our ideas that wehad ffor the ceremony and tweeked it to make it flow. It felt like it was just us three up there during the ceremony and have good hints which really made me feel comfortable.
