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.

Nicole Fankhauser September 25th, 2013

My husband and I do not belong to a church and wanted to find someone to marry us who would represent us in the best way. When I came across Tim’s website he sounded to good to be true. He went above and beyond what we expected. Multiple people came up to us and said the ceremony really fit our style and reflected us. He rehearsed everything with us before hand and gave us clues for during the ceremony and it really made us at ease and relaxed. I would recommend Tim because he is easy to work with, captures who you are during the ceremony, and makes everything easy.

The ceremony could not have been any better. He tailored every word to fit our style and made the ceremony completely unique. At one point we would be crying and the next laughing. So many of our guest told us it was the best ceremony they have ever been too.

Not only was Tim great during the ceremony but he helped keep us calm before and give us cues on what to do.

We recommend him 100%. You would be stupid to go with anyone else.

John & I wanted to thank you for helping to create a beautiful ceremony. You played a huge role in our wedding. Your style and personality fit us perfectly. We could not have asked for a better officiant to pronounce us Husband & Wife!

I’ll just say that Tim is amazing. We had seen him at a friends wedding and knew he had to officiate our wedding because he is just that good. He offers the perfect balance of familiarity while still being formal. It really felt like he “got” us and produced the perfect vows for our special day. Thanks Tim!

Tim performed our beautiful ceremony on August 24th of this year. I have always had high expectations for my wedding (as most women do) and I had lots of doubt that I was going to find someone who wasn’t biased and close-minded about performing a laid back Wiccan/new age flavored ceremony (or someone who was too over the top). We wanted someone that could meet in the middle and be as laid back and open-minded as we are, and Tim was our man. He was so nice and very funny and easy to get along with. As a woman with high expectations, he met every single one of them. I didn’t become a bridezilla even once! I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Any couple who is looking for an officiate who will create a ceremony special for them, should call Timothy Greathouse. He will work his magic. He truly is great!

Tim performed our wedding vow renewal ceremony over a year ago now … so a little update here. Patrick and I have been to several family gatherings over the past few months and each time a different family member tells us how touched they were by the ceremony and how much they enjoyed the whole event. It’s a real tribute to Tim that that feeling has remained with our family and certainly with us. Thanks again, my friend.

Sheri & Adam August 12th, 2013

Tim was definitely the right choice for our waterfall wedding in the woods. He was professional & courteous yet laid back & easy going. Tim helped make our day memorable. We still get compliments from friends and family that attended about what a great job he did. Tim is easy to work with and focused on the vision we had for our wedding day. We could not have asked for a better person to work with!

Joshua and Kayla August 9th, 2013

We were married by Tim on July 21st, and Tim was an amazing officiant. Our family and friends had nothing but positive words to say about him and his words during our ceremony. Some were even saying it was the best ceremony they’d ever seen! (And we have to agree!) He described us and our relationship perfectly, and throughout the whole process was very open to our ideas and incorporated them into the ceremony. We remember the first time speaking with Tim over the phone we got along so well we ended up chatting for forty-five minutes- most of it not even about ceremony-related things! We would definitely recommend Tim to anyone looking for a great officiant who will help give them a beautiful, personable, and memorable wedding ceremony.

Ris and Carrie Misner August 6th, 2013

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.” — Robert Fulgham

We may all be a little weird, but We, Carrie and Ris in particular, are especially weird, so of course we wanted our wedding to be weird. Our loved ones are all weird in their own ways, and we love them each in corresponding weirdness. With two families of weirdness coming together, the web of weird was wild, and Tim was perfect for all our special needs. Not that he’s weird or anything.

Word games aside, Tim was fantastic in every way. We especially loved how well he put us at ease about everything (and our parents too!) He was warm, and funny, and we just felt comfortable with him from the first second. He asked us all of the right questions to tailor the perfect ceremony for our love, and we will never forget it.
