  • Jim was an absolute dream to work with. Wedding planning can be stressful and Jim eased all of our worries and was able to come up with the most personal, lovely ceremony. It exceeded all of our expectations, I would definitely recommend. He was very accommodating and remained flexible throughout the entire process.

  • We contacted Rev Jim DeKornfield to be our officiant. He made the process very simple and stress free. He guided us through each step we needed to take and was very helpful. When he found out there was a schedule conflict he reached out to us and asked if we would be interested in working with Rev Janet Kenworthy. Rev Kenworthy and Rev Dekornfield worked with us up until our wedding day. Rev Kenworthy created a beautiful story of our life together and the importance of family for both of us. Thank you both so much.

    You are so sweet to say such nice things about Rev. Janet and I. Although it's really the two of us who thank you for allowing us to do our part to make your wedding day as wonderful as it should be. All the best for many years to come. Rev. Jim DeKornfeld

  • Rev. DeKornfield came out to officiate me and my wife’s ceremony at our home on his Birthday early in the morning as we requested. He was on time and read beautiful vows in front of our family! He made eye contact with our family and made it a wonderful ceremony! Trust me you will not be disappointed with booking with Daybreak Ceremonies! ~ Kiosha & Latoya Hodge

    Kiosha and LaToya, I've had enough birthdays that it's hard to find something to get really excited about, but being able to come into your home and meet your family and bring you two together as a married couple was a real treat. Thanks so much.

He crafted the most beautiful ceremony that really fit us and our personalities. I highly recommend him!!!!!

  • Jim is great! I did a ton of research before deciding on an officiant and we ended up going with Daybreak Ceremonies. The professionalism and value we got was unmatched. An added perk is that he is funny too. Great response time and Jim had a lot of patience with us as we exchanged multiple drafts. The ceremony was great. Would highly recommend!

  • Rev. Jim DeKornfeld, officiated our son and his beautiful bride's wedding. He helped them create a ceremony that focused on them, their story, love and their wedding vows. He was able to talk about them as if he had known them for many years while creating a whimsical atmosphere of joy and love. He did not dominate the service- it was all about the bride and groom! It was perfect.

  • My wife and I are both female enlisted soldiers stationed in Alabama but wanted to get married in SC so that our family could be part of the ceremony. Reverend Jim Dekornfield was incredibly flexible, professional, and kind. He not only drove several hours to meet us but also helped us choose the perfect location as we were unfamiliar with the area. We are so very thankful of his services. We highly recommend Rev Dekornfield for couples who want an open-minded and welcoming officiant for their wedding ceremony.

    Tracy, Officiating for you and Maya was so much fun. Any day you can be with two people in love, a supportive family, while knee deep in the surf is a good day. Best wishes for many wonderful years together. Rev. Jim

  • From our first meeting, we knew that Jim was the guy for us. Now, looking back at the months of planning and ultimately the wedding day, we are very pleased that we found him. He guided us through the entire process and in the end, he delivered an incredible ceremony. After the ceremony, several guests told us that the wedding ceremony was the best they had ever heard. Jim truly did a great job of personalizing the ceremony to tell our story. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Jim you were amazing!

  • Jim was absolutely wonderful in officiating our ceremony. He created a beautiful story of our love and life together and was able to tell it in a way that was funny, touching and sentimental at the same time. He was incredibly easy to work with, on time and very professional every step of the way. We were thrilled with our ceremony; it was everything we wanted and more. Would highly recommend Jim to anyone.

  • Jim was absolutely wondeful. Working with us to meet and tell our story to him was extremely helpful as we navigated a very busy time ahead of our wedding. Jim went out of his way to insure our ceremony was exactly as how we envisioned and helped my bride and me craft a ceremony that matched our love perfectly. Thank you Jim and I would, without reservation, recommend Jim to anyone planning a special day.

  • My husband and I were celebrating our 10th Anniversary in our favorite place on earth - Pinehurst, NC. As part of the celebration we were bringing our parents and best friends and planned on renewing our wedding vows. The Resort recommended several officiants and the first on the list was Jim DeKornfeld of Daybreak Ceremonies. We didn't look any further! From my first conversation with Jim, I felt like he was the right choice for us. We filled out our questionnaires - separately, of course - and Jim turned our responses and our conversations into a lovely ceremony celebrating our past, present and future! It could not have been any more perfect and appropriate for us. Thank you Jim for giving us the best ceremony we could ask for! Can't wait to renew our vows again in 5 years!

  • Jim was a wonderful officiant! He completely custom tailored our wedding ceremony and told the "story" of my now husband and I. He was an amazing communicator and kept me in the loop and on track for our big day. With so many details to keep track of, he assisted in keeping me informed. Wouldn't recommend anyone else. He threw many of his own special touches in there that just felt right for our ceremony! Thanks again Jim Dekornfeld!

  • Jim officiated the ceremony for my husband and I on September 10th, 2016. We informed him of how we met and he did a fantastic job of putting it together to come up with the wording, listening to any changes we wanted to make. He kept the ceremony light with some funny moments like I wanted. It was an outdoor wedding and he spoke loud and clear. I would definitely recommend Jim to others.

  • We just had our wedding and Jim was fantastic. His professionalism and quick responses made our day perfect. He always got back to us the same day and made the event stress free. I would highly recommend Jim. He was willing to travel and even rode a chair lift lol. He gave us a few ideas to make our day even more special and memorable. Thank you again Jim for making our day perfect. Brian and Gian
