  • Reverend Jim Mooney is one of the most special people my husband and I have ever met. Being engaged and planning a wedding is a exciting yet stressful time, with a lot of decision-making. We knew we wanted to have our ceremony onsite at our beautiful venue but there was a lot to figure out! We were so fortunate to have had Jim Rooney referred to us. Having him part of this journey and our big day was a gift in every way. From our first conversation, he made us feel comfortable and answered all of our questions. We loved visiting Beacon Hermitage and the journey he took us on in preparation for our ceremony. So many of our guests said that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended, traditional yet unique to us in so many ways, and asked if Jim had known us personally beforehand! We are blessed to have started our marriage with an unforgettable and magical ceremony led by Jim.

  • As soon as I entered our cocktail hour after the ceremony, one of the first things so many people said to me was, "Where did you find your officiant!? He was great!" My husband and I aren't very religious, but we still wanted our ceremony to feel special and personal, boy, did Rev. Jim deliver! He included so many anecdotes about my husband and I and got several laughs from our family and friends, even as they melted in the hot sun. He also suggested items to add to our ceremony to make it extra unique, which was super helpful. He really takes the time to get to know you as a couple, whether via skype or meetings at his home (we did both) and will cater your ceremony to fit you as a couple. We wouldn't have changed a thing! Thank you, Rev. Jim!

  • We had the most amazing wedding ceremony officiated by the wonderful, kind and supportive Rev. Jim Rooney. We felt very well taken care of from the first time we reached out to Rooney up until the final moment of us taking a fun selfie together and thanking him for his services. We were lucky to have the opportunity to meet with him in-person in his beautiful home in Beacon prior to our ceremony. We felt so welcomed and taken care of, we even decided on a ceremony schedule based off of his many thoughtful recommendations (guest mingling, parent readings, wine ceremony). He made it very personal, fun, and he took the time to get to know us. It was clear from the first time we skyped Rev. Jim Rooney that he was going to be our officiant for the wedding and he did an amazing job by keeping it fun and romantic at the same time. We absolutely loved it and many of our guests are still giving us complements to this date ! If I had to do it again, I would change nothing at all. His words reall... Read more

  • Jim was unbelievable throughout the whole experience. We had the chance to speak several times before the wedding and was lucky to meet in person before as well. My minister from growing to couldn’t officiate and I was worried we wouldn’t be able to find anyone that we were comfortable with. Not only did Jim make us feel calm and comfortable leading up to the wedding, but the day of! His process is thoughtful and patient, and the perfect mix of spiritual and personal. Could not recommend him enough!

  • A wonderful personalized ceremony! Reverend Jim is one of the kindest people we’ve ever met, and he did a wonderful job personalizing our ceremony with heartfelt words and a unique and nuanced sermon about our very specific story as a couple. Well worth it!

  • Rev. Rooney did a fantastic job from the first time we jumped on Face Time with him, to our visit in Beacon and finally to our wedding day. He took the time to get to know us both as individuals and as a couple in our journey to marriage. He asked us about how we first met, our first dates and the big proposal. During every interaction, he was so welcoming and easy to talk to that we would often go over the time we had planned to chat with him. He knew exactly what we were looking for in our ceremony and provided multiple ways to customize our rituals and incorporate our friends and family throughout the entire ceremony. Our family and friends have told us that it was one of the most engaging ceremonies they had ever been to and definitely one of the most emotional. The day after the wedding, he sent over a very sweet text along with some gorgeous photos of the venue and some special moments from our family portraits. He was incredibly prompt with submitting our marriage license and ... Read more

  • Jim Rooney did an awesome job in marrying my daughter and son in law. The ceremony was beautiful and he really made it personal for them. Our wedding guests were "blown away" with his words and how great the ceremony was. Jim, thanks for making it such a special day for us.

  • Our wedding ceremony with Rev. Jim Rooney was everything we could have asked for and more. Jim made us feel so comfortable and we had so many guests come up to us saying how wonderful the ceremony was. Jim has a way of making this special moment so personable and really engaged the guests and made all feel so welcome. We enjoyed every step of the planning process and working with Jim to really make the ceremony our own. He is truly an amazing officiant!

  • My wife and I are so happy we found Jim to be our officiant. From Day 1 he was fully committed to making sure our ceremony was perfect. We aren't very religious, and wanted to keep with our family's religious traditions. Jim knew exactly what we wanted. And our ceremony was amazing! He took the time to get to know us, and it really reflected in the beautiful words spoken on our wedding day! We will never forget him, as he will always be remembered as a part of our big day!

  • Jim is an all around great guy and helped to make our wedding day so special! We lived far away but he was so flexible and accommodating of FaceTime planning sessions leading up to the wedding. We were the first ones in our family to not get married in a Church, and some were questioning this decision - but Jim helped to make our ceremony so personalized and special. He got rave reviews from all wedding guests. Thanks Jim!
