  • Rev. Jim was amazing. He listened to everything we said. He helped my husband I become even closer in our meetings with him. We see Rev. Jim as a friend that we hope yo stay in touch with for years to come. We could not have been happier with our decision to have him officiate our wedding. Highly recommend Rev. Jim. He has an amazing sense of humor and he cares so much. He is truly an amazing soul.

  • Rev. Jim made our experience wonderful. He was flexible with our times we had available to meet. We were able to speak either in person or over the phone. Rev. Jim walked us through the process and guided through the process, but still allowed to make the ceremony our own. I had several people tell me what a wonderful and thoughtful job he did. I could not of been happier with our decision to have Rev. Jim mary us. Thank you!

  • Jim was absolutely wonderful! Coming from two different backgrounds, my husband and I wanted our wedding to incorporate some Jewish traditions as well as Christian traditions. Jim walked us through the entire wedding ceremony process as well as helped us to understand ourselves and our relationship in a deeper way over the course of the year leading up to the wedding. My husband and I are very pleased with our ceremony and we continue to receive compliments from our guests on how insightful and personal the ceremony was. We were extremely blessed to have Jim as our minister!

  • Jim was absolutely fantastic! its really hard to put into words how much of a difference he made in this entire process. from the personality assessments and consoling around that, to helping us actually make the ceremony, he made the entire process much easier. we couldn't be happier with Jim, and with the ceremony. I HIGHLY recommend him!

  • Rev. Francek co-officiated my wedding with a Rabbi that my wife found. His portion of the ceremony was very tasteful and respectful to all in attendance. Finding a Reverend who is willing to co-officiate with a Rabbi is a tough find, but we didn't have to look any further once we found Rev. Francek. I couldn't be happier with the decision to choose Rev. francek as my co-officiant and I would highly recommend his services to anybody.

  • We loved having Jim as our wedding officiant! He was easy to work with and provided us with exactly the mix of a religious and nonsecular ceremony we wanted, with a little touch of Irish prayer. Since we didn't live close to Jim and were unable to meet on weekends, we video chatted with him for all of our sessions. He provided us with some questionnaires to help us bring up big topics that we may have not yet discussed and helped us navigate through topics that we maybe didn't see eye to eye on. There were things we learned about each other through these sessions and other things further confirmed that we were making the right decision to take this journey together. We really enjoyed our sessions with him and felt like they did bring us closer as a couple! For our wedding day, Jim was prompt and professional. Our ceremony was beautiful and he really hit the mark. We loved every second of it. We highly recommend Jim as an officiant! If you're looking for a ceremony that is tailor... Read more

  • We feel so blessed that our paths crossed with Jim and that he was the officiant for our wedding. From the moment we met him, he was an amazing listener who provided such wonderful insight and meaning into who we were as individuals and as a couple. He took the time to get to know us, which truly made our ceremony unbelievably personal and magical. Working with Jim has truly strengthened our relationship on a deeper level, as we reflected and learned about each other's strengths and what makes us strong as a unit. Jim, thank you for making the whole planning process so meaningful, fun, and memorable and creating a ceremony that truly captured our love for one another that we will never forget.

  • Jim was extremely helpful in planning our ceremony. He really took the time to get to know us before crafting a beautiful sermon. Admittedly, we were hesitant on hiring someone who we didn't know personally, but I have to say we were beyond lucky to have found him. Highly recommend to anyone looking for someone who takes their time to understand the couple and wants a personalized and professional sermon. Jim is the best!

  • We are very happy to have found Rev. Jim to officiate at our wedding. He has worked with us pre-wedding, made us rediscover things about ourselves and our relationship, basically had a mini-retreat filled with useful knowledge on marriage. Choosing a good officiant was our priority. I am Catholic and my husband is Agnostic, our guests are a mix of different beliefs and cultures - Rev. Jim has created a ceremony that was respectful to all. He crafted a reflection 'sermon' that was both insightful and funny. He has a deep booming voice and a presence that makes you feel at ease right away. Our guests were impressed on how accurate Rev. Jim described our personalities, loved how we incorporated traditions into the ceremony and was basically quoting Rev. Jim's 'sermon' the whole day. We highly recommend Rev. Jim. Thank you for sharing your time, skills and talent with us!

  • Jim let us craft our own wedding vows. Guided us with the order of service and offered lots of options. It was a pleasure working with Jim on our wedding day. Jim kept track of the details and our time together prior to the wedding was thoughtful and enlightening.

  • We're so happy to have chosen Rev Francek for our wedding in May. The pre-marriage work was surprisingly interesting and very valuable - we definitely had some great conversations together that I think gave us a stronger foundation for our marriage. We were not originally looking for that when we were looking for an officiant, but I'm happy we did it. For the ceremony, Rev Francek provided very thoughtful structure and made good reading suggestions. We wrote our own vows. Our guests commented that it was an incredibly moving ceremony - I think we all cried through the whole thing. We would definitely recommend him for your wedding.

  • Rev Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with. Heave great advice on marriage, was easy to talk to, and kind. He gave great relationship advice and we loved the process leading up to the wedding day. He gave us a customized ceremony tailored to our desires. We wanted something lighthearted, personal, warm with some humor and he delivered just that. I can't recommend Rev Jim enough! He was fantastic and made our ceremony everything we hoped for.

  • Rev. Jim did a fantastic job of helping us prepare for not only our ceremony but our entire marriage. When we decided to not get married in a church, we were afraid of not being able to have a traditional and spiritual ceremony, but Rev. Jim really got to know us and understand what was important to us and helped us craft the perfect ceremony. His counseling and advice in the months leading up to our wedding we so valuable to us and something that we didn't even realize we needed, but proved to be extremely helpful to our relationship, especially during the stressful time of wedding planning!
