  • Jim is simply the best. When looking for an officiant, we didn't really know where to start but we are SO grateful that we found Jim. From the first intro phone call, Jim was honest and sincere and easy to talk to. He made some great suggestions to help make our ceremony even more special and intimate. We were BLOWN AWAY when we read the first draft of our ceremony. He captured my husband and I's relationship so perfectly. We really could not have asked for a better officiant and would recommend Jim to anyone!! Our guests are still raving about how wonderful of a job he did and said it was the best ceremony they've ever witnessed. Thank you, Jim!!

    You and Grant are as wonderful a couple as I could ever ask to work with. Thanks so much for allowing me to play the part I had in making your wedding what it was. Best wishes for many happy years together.

  • 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

    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

  • You cannot go wrong with Jim! He was really great to work with, and very knowledgeable in what he does; we highly recommend Daybreak Ceremonies!! Jim was very flexible and accommodating in putting everything together for our ceremony. He was prompt in reaching out after my initial inquiry and continued with great communication throughout the process. Thank you so much, Jim!!!

    Kim, although your ceremony was short and didn’t have a large audience, it was perfect. You two are wonderful. Best wishes for many happy years together. 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!

He not only worked with me beforehand to fine tune the details of our ceremony to perfectly fit my husband and myself but then executed the deliver perfectly. We had numerous guests comment on the heartfelt and truly personalized ceremony. I would tell anyone looking for an officiant to look no further! Jim is your man!

  • I had a wonderful experience working with Jim. He was very responsive and extremely helpful with any questions or concerns I had. He made the ceremony very personalized and humorous at points, it was absolutely perfect for the small, intimate ceremony we were having. I would highly recommend Jim and Daybreak Ceremonies! I honestly can't think of anything that would have made our experience any better!

    You were wonderful to work with as prepared your ceremony. Best wishes for many happy years together. Jim
