  • Jim was great, bottom line. His flexibility during this Covid era was spot on, working with us through virtual environments and being patient while my wife and I changed our plans multiple times. His depth on understand of who were are was definitely captured in his words. He made an wonderful effort to blend two different religious backgrounds and values to make sure all were included and felt as one whole. Excellent work!!

  • We are so grateful to have had Jim officiate our wedding. We began working with Jim in the Spring of 2019 in anticipation of our May 2020 wedding... unfortunately COVID had other plans. Jim worked closely with us every step of the way, from initial planning, to postponing, to rescheduling and every change in between. Jim captured our personalities perfectly, and reflected who we are as a couple in our ceremony. If you are looking for a personalized wedding experience, Jim is for you!

  • James is so sweet and did such a phenomenal job making our covid wedding feel special. A few people, including my grandma (who may or may not be biased), told me it’s the best wedding ceremony they’ve witnessed. Highly recommend!!

    Thank you for the wonderful comments...I loved working with you both as we navigated the twists that COVID threw at you. Blessings for your lives and what God has in store for you! Jim Ullian

  • We are so thankful that Jim was able to be apart of our special day. He has remarried other members of our family and I was set on having him at our wedding from the get go. I have to say with Covid and other unforeseen events going on the months leading up to our wedding Jim was so flexible and had great communication with us the whole time. We really left most of the ceremony scriptures up to him and the whole thing turned out beautiful. I have had multiple guests reach out to me since the wedding to ask where we found Jim. Thank you!!

    Thank you for the wonderful review...but more importantly for the opportunity to celebrate with your family!

  • Our wedding was in the heat of the summer, in the middle of the pandemic. While we were not ankle to get married where we originally wanted(the beach) , Pastor Jim made our backyard wedding spectacular. I truly recommend him for your wedding needs!! I am so glad we were referred to him and have absolutely no regrets of our decision.

  • We got married during COVID. He was extremely helpful and flexible with our dynamic wedding plans. He provided great advise on other wedding vendors in the areas as we were not local. He got to know us such that the service was personal and meaningful. Treated us as family. Highly recommend!

  • Jim did such an amazing job and was such a pleasure to work with. We ended up changing our plans with little notice and he was always looking out for what was best for us. The Covid pandemic made it so that we couldn’t have the wedding we originally planned. We ended up doing a Facebook live wedding and Jim was just as amazing and engaging as he would’ve been in front of 100 people. I cannot recommend Jim enough!!

  • We are very fortunate to have had Pastor Jim Ullian officiate at our wedding. Jim is very professional, reliable, friendly, and caring. With lots of compliments from family and friends, his compassion and peaceful demeanor during our wedding helped in our ceremony turning out to be a beautiful event. During the initial meet and greet, Jim encouraged us to write a paragraph about why we love one another. He then incorporated some nice personal touches from our letters into the ceremony. He met with us beforehand for the rehearsal, walked us through the timeline, and was very clear and knowledgable about how to do certain things, which really helped us with the specifics. Jim is incredibly supportive, went above and beyond our expectations, and was super easy and fun to work with. He is highly recommended by us! Thank you Jim, Courtney and Ian Scott

  • Pastor Ullian was awesome! Asked both my now husband and I to write a paragraph about what we love about one another. He tied our story of how we met and what we love about each other and our selections of biblical readings. It was beyond beautiful and I recommend him 110%!!

  • Jim was an outstanding pastor for our wedding. My husband and I (both active duty military) could not have requested a better person to officiate our holy matrimony. Jim ensured he attended to our needs, was punctual at all meetings leading up to the event, made our special day memorable. If you are in a bind and are looking for someone to officiate, Jim Ullian is the man you need to reach out to.

  • Pastor Ullian, was extremely patient and understanding; he performed a Christian wedding for us. He was polite respectful and had a great demeanor. I highly recommend him; it was a joy. His fees were extremely low and he allows you to customize the ceremony for your own unique experience. We were able to incorporate our children in the ceremony; which was a blessing. He is extremely flexible; he can do small private ceremonies and large ones as well. He provided solid documentation which provided options and services to choose from. Again, our experience was awesome and we are blessed to have met Pastor Ullian.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Jim Ullian and Distinctive Beach Weddings. From our first meeting, during the planning and through the ceremony, working with Jim was a wonderful experience. He was very accommodating and flexible and took time to learn our "story" so that the ceremony reflected our history and our love. My husband and I did not have the typical "walk down the aisle" wedding, but an intimate dinner party of family and close friends with an exchange of vows. Having Jim celebrate our wedding with us helped make the evening absolutely perfect. Thank you Jim!

  • Everything about the wedding went great! We both thought that Jim did a really nice job, and our families loved him too. He had a good sense of humor and had nice ideas about what to include in our ceremony. One of his suggestions was a love lock ceremony, which we both really enjoyed. He really helped make our ceremony memorable.

  • My husband and I got married late September 2018, In Sandbridge Va. Being from Maryland, we performed a search on Wedding Wire. This is where we found Jim. We reached out to him and received an immediate response. Not only did we talk to him via phone, but we were able to facetime with him. We were very fortunate to find out that Jim was actually going to be in our hometown. We arrange a meeting with him. And that's when it hit us. There couldn't be anyone else that we would want to share our special day with us. We shared several phone calls and e-mails with Jim. He goes the extra mile to get to know you as an individual and as a couple. When we found Jim, not only did we find the perfect person to officiate our wedding we found a friend as well. To this day there is still communication between us. Thank you Jim for everything!!!!! The Phennicie's

  • My officiant ran into an issue last minute, my mother in law was calling around trying to find anyone not booked last minute. Jim immediately responded, and when I talked to him he wanted to know us! He spent time gathering info on us, our family, our background. He encorpoeated all of this an our 5 children into our ceremony and it was perfect!!! Very personable, very flexible and easy going and all around wonderful experience. I would absolutely recommend and thankful we found him!
