  • Rev. DeKornfeld officiated our wedding exactly the way we wanted. He understood exactly what we needed to be incorporated into our special day. We not only had our best friends attend our wedding, but Jim became a part of our family in his own special way. His ability to understand and know us with the short amount of time I put on him is uncanny.

    You are so sweet. The story that the two of you have made my job easy. Best wishes for a long and happy marriage. Jim

  • Rev. DeKornfeld not only helped us prepare a ceremony that was meaningful to us, but he also adapted that ceremony as our plans changed to the format of a virtual wedding. It was everything we wanted in a ceremony and provided a chance to share our story with our family that watched from across the country. We are so thankful for Jim's patience and quick communication with us during this uncertain time.

    Thanks so much for your kind words. You two were the super stars being able to adjust your plans and your ceremony to have so many of your friends and family participate even though they could not attend in person. I'll always remember your ceremony with great fondness.

  • Jim was very professional and delivered a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony. We continue to receive compliments from family and friends about how moving the ceremony was and how much it reflected our love and relationship. Jim was personable and took the time to learn about our love story and memories and incorporated them into our ceremony flawlessly. Getting married during COVID without some special people in our lives there with us was not easy, but Jim made us feel like we were all together as he spoke and included everyone, both those in person with us and on Zoom. Thank you Jim for creating this special ceremony for us - it was phenomenal and one we will always remember.

    Grace, You and Shawn are amazing. It was a pleasure learning about the two of you and being allowed to tell your story. I admire the love you have for each other m and the faith you have in a better future. Best wishes for many happy years together. Jim

  • Our "later in life" wedding didn't require all the pre and post celebrations. Our families and friends that remain didn't need to travel from out of state. Certainly, time was not a commodity we wanted to waste. With a one week notice, Reverend Jim DeKornfeld more than accomodated our request for a simple, meaningful ceremony to be held at our golf course 20 minutes before our tee time. The golf got rained out but our new life began. Thank you Reverend Jim

    responded with the following comments.

    You guys are wonderful. Looking forward to getting out there soon and teeing them up with you. Rev Jim

  • Jim was awesome! Perfect even. Leading up to the ceremony Jim was responsive to all of our requests and didn't hesitate to give us some poignant recommendations, all of which helped make the ceremony more special than it would've ever been without him. After spending almost a year in constant communication with us Jim knew what type of people we were and how informal yet still very special we wanted to keep the ceremony. Keeping this in mind he officiated it perfectly! We are extremely happy with Jim and recommend his services to everyone!

    Renewal of Vows, such as yours are so wonderful because you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you are married exactly to the right person. Thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your very special day and a big hug for Freya. She was perfect. Jim

  • We had the pleasure of working with Jim DeKornfeld with Daybreak Ceremonies. We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant! Very professional and personable. He made sure that our ceremony was tailored to our personalities, heritage and wishes. You would have thought that he had known us for years!!! It was truly the most special day of our lives and we could not imagine having had anyone else perform our wedding!! Thank you Jim!

    As said earlier, you two are a special couple. Best wishes for many, many, wonderful years together. Jim

  • Jim is the Ultimate Professional!! He is very well organized, will walk you through the entire process from start to finish and always make sure you are comfortable! We worked with Jim while coordinating a Wedding out of state and I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for an officiant! He really made our Wedding Day special and many guests inquired about his background and professionalism.

    As said before, without couples such as you and Bernie allowing us to do our part to make your wedding day special none of this would happen. Take care and hopefully be in touch. Enjoy the 5th wedding anniversary wine and letters. Jim

  • Jim was fantastic. He captured everything my wife and I wanted in our ceremony. He was comfortable, funny, emotional, thoughtful when planning the ceremony script, and very easy to work with through email. Jim was easily the best choice we made when planning our wedding.

  • Jim delivered an excellent ceremony which managed to blend the lines between romantic, traditional, humorous and intimate. Numerous guests told us the ceremony was one of the most memorable they had been to. On top of that, Jim was very responsive and made everything extremely easy. I'd say I'd love to do business with him again, but that wouldn't apply here - despite the excellent service.

  • The ceremony Jim wrote and spoke for us made our entire wedding. My husband and I are not affiliated with a church, so finding a celebrant that we trusted seemed like a daunting task. From our first phone conversation, we knew Jim was our guy. He took the time to get to know us and was able to package that into an amazing, laughing through the happy tears kind of ceremony. I've had several friends mention how wittily romantic Jim's writing was - many saying it reminded them of the love that brought them together with their own spouse. If you have the chance to hire Jim, jump at it.

  • We used Jim for our wedding last weekend and he was nothing short of professional. He kept the audiences attention with a humorous but intimate ceremony that was written specific to us and how we met/our personalities. We loved him so much and would recommend him to anyone getting married!
