We were very nervous when it came to beginning the search for an officiant for our wedding; We wanted something different from the “traditional” ceremony,we wanted something nonreligious that suited our personalities and could portray our love for eachother. We could envision what we wanted, we just didn’t know how to go about it. When we found Tim, all of our concerns were taken care of!

Tim was there for us every step of the way, and was very involved in customizing our ceremony to make it personal for us. Which of course included changing our “facebook status/name,” and as silly as it sounds that was the best part of our ceremony. It was unique to us and thats what we loved about it! And more importantly is what everyone else remembers. Our family and friends had amazingly good things to say about our ceremony,and they loved that they got to learn more about us as a couple throughout the wedding.

In the weeks after the wedding we watched our wedding video several times, and listening to Tim, as well as watching his emotions during the ceremony is absolutely amazing. He is such a great speaker, he made us feel comfortable BEFORE and THROUGHOUT the ceremony. And most importantly gave us exactly what we were looking for in our wedding ceremony.

Tim we cannot thank you enough for the wonderful ceremony you gave us! It was truly amazing

One year ago today Tim married my husband and I. When we started looking for an officiant we were a little scared because while we do believe in God, we are not religious people and did not want a religious ceremony. We found Tim and he explained the ceremony to us and we knew this is the route we wanted to take. The day of our wedding Tim showed up early to go over our vows with us prior to the ceremony. My husband said when he got to the hall he was nervous and once Tim found him and explained how things would work it helped to calm him down. After the ceremony all of our friends and family commented on how lovely the ceremony was. We owe it all to Tim. Thank you so much!

I worked with Tim in May. I have been in the event planning busines since 1995 and have worked with many officiants. I felt that Tim did a very meaningful and personal ceremony for the bride and groom. His words to the couple were so appropriate and the quotations perfect for them. The ceremony meant so much to the bride and groom and all the guests commented on the beauty of the ceremony.

Tim was the perfect wedding officiant. He was professional, funny, and a snappy dresser! We wanted a simple, beautiful, intimate wedding, and Tim delivered! His choice of words was beautiful, but he kept it light hearted, which is exactly what we wanted. I certainly hope that I never need his services again, but will definitely recommend him to everyone I know, and hope to be able to sit in on his ceremonies in the future.

Amazing job Tim!! Thank you so much!! Both of our families enjoyed the ceremony-even though the wind was blowing and it was down right COLD!! Glad you were able to bring some humor into the situation and and make it just a little bit warmer!!

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Evidence of how great a job Tim did as officiant was the fact several of our wedding guests assumed that we had know Tim for years. In fact, we met him in person just a few weeks before the wedding. Tim seamlessly took the information and anecdotes that we gave him and incorporated them into the ceremony. We had a secular service that felt robust and full of personal touches.

Tim has both gravitas and warmth in his demeanor, and we strongly recommend him if you are looking for an officiant for your wedding.

Julie & Nick January 14th, 2013

We did not want a traditional or religious ceremony, but we did want to have a ceremony that was meaningful and beautiful and that is exactly what Tim gave us. Our religious grandparents even loved it! He made our ceremony about us and did a wonderful job making it really personal to us. He was great to work with too, always got back to us promptly, totally flexible and upfront, and just an all-around great guy. From the moment we saw his website, we knew Tim was the right person for what we wanted. Choosing him was one of the best, most important decisions we made for our wedding. All of our guests said it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever attended, and everyone felt like they got to know us better as a couple through Tim’s words, which was exactly what we hoped would happen. I can’t say enough great things about Tim, we’ll always be grateful to him for the huge role he played in making the day incredibly special and memorable.

I couldn’t have been more pleased with Tim as our wedding officiant. We had a super small wedding and Tim delivered an engaging yet beautiful ceremony. He made the entire process of finding an officiant and getting ceremony plans in place a breeze. Throughout the entire process, Tim was professional, punctual, and charismatic!

Mary and Joe Bonnell November 13th, 2012

I knew from reading his website that Tim would be the perfect fit for our ceremony, and he certainly was. He was professional, and attentive. He listened to everything we said, and created the most perfect ceremony based on the information we provided him. We had a Dr. Suess theme for our ceremony and he suggested a reading of Oh, the Places You’ll Go, which fit perfectly. He kept the ceremony upbeat and happy while honoring the seriousness of the commitment we made that day. I cannot stress enough how professional and amazing he was. He calmed me down that morning, and calming an anxious bride is no easy feat. He performed 2 other weddings on the same day as ours, and I encourage not to be nervous if he mentions he has other wedding on your date. If he says he can be there, he will. Your ceremony is the most important part of your wedding. It’s the reason for the dj, the reception, the dress, and the cake. I have no qualms about recommending him!

Matt and Jessica Reagle November 3rd, 2012

A year later, people still tell us how our wedding ceremony was the best they have ever seen. Tim, man, you spoke that day as if you had known the both of us our entire lives, and that intimate charismatic connection you have with people is I think the most fiery and genuine part of your character. You are, if I may be so candid, “THE” man. Your wit, humor, and passion is strikingly evident to all who meet you, and looking back on that day I can’t imagine having had anyone other than you standing beside us on that altar.

Love you man. Rock on.
