  • JP was beyond our expectations. My wife and I felt extremely comfortable up there; we did a circular ceremony so the concept seemed overwhelming at first with 200+ people around us but we couldn't of enjoyed it more with his calming words & energy up there. We even had a special request on the specific timing of saying our "I Do’s," but we knew that it wouldn't necessarily be perfect given such demanding requests…but low & behold JP somehow timed it to the minute and made the ceremony absolutely PERFECT at 4:55pm! We had endless compliments from religious and non-religious guests on the job that JP did officiating our wedding. JP does a fantastic job of relating the ceremony to everyone present, regardless of beliefs. We highly recommend using JP, he is more than welcome to help and meet with you as many times as you want in preparation for your wedding! Unlike a lot of professionals out there.

  • JP was an incredible officiant to work with. My (now) wife and I could not have been more happy with how our ceremony turned out! For the planning phase, JP is with you throughout the whole process providing invaluable advice and suggestions so that you are able to make your ceremony something truly special. He really puts in the effort to get to know the couples and we were so happy to be able to meet with him multiple times before the wedding to put our minds at ease. As for the actual ceremony, he is a special and heartfelt officiant with all the right words. We had multiple people ask us how we found him, because he was the best officiant they had ever heard. We highly recommend JP as an officiant!

  • Perfection, Real, True, Profound, Honest, Sincere … Our ceremony was the most important part of the wedding for us and JP NAILED IT! It was ‘US’. Every aspect, every moment was full of love and reflected the complete essence of who Mike and I are as a couple. I say this in the best way, JP stole the show - not by being gregarious or over the top, but by just being him - a serene and beautiful person with an incredibly peaceful presence. All of our guests, all night long, kept saying, “That was the best ceremony I’ve ever witnessed. Where did you find that guy?! He was the best officiant ever!” … Truer words could not be said. JP Reynolds is the best officiant ever. Hire him! Don’t even think twice. He’s ‘the’ guy! We love you JP!

  • My husband and I came to JP with a myriad of asks in mind for our big day. My husband was especially particular about finding the perfect officiant; he had a Catholic upbringing and wanted a very meaningful ceremony, but did not want the stodgy feel that can sometimes accompany these mass-type ceremonies. Our ceremony was outdoors, and we wanted it to feel very positive, very upbeat, and be personalized to us and our story. From the moment I came across JP's website, I knew I couldn't wait to speak with him and see if he was the right fit for our day. His website stood out from the rest and I had a very good feeling that he would be able to give us the exact ceremony we were after, based upon what he presented. We wanted a ceremony that was not at all cheesy, was not gimmicky, was not canned, but was real and authentic to us. When we spoke with JP on the phone and met with him in person afterwards, our connection with him was immediate. He put us at ease and his presence actually felt ... Read more

  • The ceremony at our wedding was so special, and JP was a part of that. He helped guide us through the process of how our ceremony should be structured, and curated to be personal while combining some traditional Jewish elements. The beautiful words he shared with us that day were really lovely, I'd definitely recommend JP!

  • Cannot possibly express how amazing JP is! We got married in Joshua Tree but we live in Chicago. We met JP once in person but also had a few Skype meetings with him. He provided some sage advice on writing our own vows, asked thoughtful questions which gave him great insight into our relationship and was willing to perform a cultural tradition we wanted incorporated during our ceremony as well. He crafted a ceremony that was heartfelt, thoughtful, and captivating for the audience. He managed to include the audience in the ceremony, which we loved. And he shared the most amazing/applicable words of good cheer as well. He is well-spoken and professional. The ceremony flowed perfectly. You won’t regret hiring JP!

  • It was such a pleasure working with JP. We were lucky enough to have met him through my cousin, who he also officiated. He has a kind heart and genuinely cares for his clients and their big day. He is a seasoned officiant but he's far from jaded; he loves what he does and it shows. We knew he was going to be our officiant after our first consultation. He was very easy to talk to and answered all of our questions thoroughly. On the big day there's so much happening around us, but JP's presence really set the mood and helped calm our nerves. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant. We love JP and would recommend him to all of our loved ones.

  • JP created a beautiful wedding ceremony for us, it was everything we wanted. He did an incredible job and we are so happy with how the ceremony turned out. Before we met JP, we thought we needed a family member or friend to officiate our wedding ceremony in order to make it personal enough. We were torn about what to do. We aren't overly religious and wanted our ceremony to still have tradition and meaning. After meeting JP, we knew he was the right person. JP was willing to meet with us in person, via Skype/phone, and even at his home. He was very prompt with his email replies. On our wedding day, he didn't read from a prewritten script. He remembered our loved ones names and the flow of the ceremony was seamless. The ceremony was perfect, at least for us. It was personal, meaningful, and reflected us. Our family and friends complimented our ceremony and how he did such an amazing job. It was such a pleasure working with JP!

  • JP was truly the perfect touch for our wedding, which was held in Santa Barbara, California. I met JP at a conference for the wedding/event industry and instantly knew he would be perfect to serve as our officiant! My fiancé and I traveled to California from Louisiana for our wedding and of course, choosing an officiant was SO important to us. JP surpassed all of our hopes and dreams. He listened to us and made our ceremony perfect! JP's ceremony was so heart-felt! His kindness throughout the process was icing on the cake! JP was wonderful in every aspect!

  • JP was a warm, kind, funny, knowledgeable, reassuring guide throughout the process of planning our ceremony (really, the most important part of the wedding!) He helped us craft a truly personalized ceremony and, on our wedding day, his wise words on commitment and marriage had me bawling within 30 seconds. I should also mention that JP is a consummate professional. He walked us through the entire formal/legal process of actually getting married, mailed in our paperwork for us, was very responsive when we emailed/called with questions, etc. -- I highly recommend him and am only sorry that I don't have more reasons to hire JP!

  • JP was an amazing officiant. He has done hundreds, maybe thousands of weddings. When we met with him the first time, we knew he was the right one for us. He spent time talking to us to really learn who we were and what we wanted for our wedding. He talked us through every single step of the day and made sure we picked readings, rituals and people for the ceremony that had the most meaning for us. The day of the wedding he orchestrated everything and made sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be at what time. Picking the right officiant is often overlooked as not a critical part of the wedding, but I think it is THE most important part of the ceremony. We wanted a professional who could guide us through the process and make sure that everything was just how we envisioned it, and JP delivered on all accounts. Every one of our friends and family shared that this was the most beautiful ceremony they have been to (and I don't think they were all just saying that). They said th... Read more

  • My husband and I first met JP via Skype, as we planned our wedding from out of state, and RIGHT away we knew he was the perfect fit for us. So easygoing and easy to talk to, clearly experienced, and full of ideas and suggestions without being the slightest bit pushy. Our first in-person meeting wasn't until a week before the wedding, but he still officiated the wedding as if he'd known us forever. He told our story beautifully and the entire ceremony was a PERFECT representation of the two of us. Guests were commenting all night (and to this day) on how moved they were by his words, his delivery, and how it seemed like we'd known him forever. It made our wedding day that much more powerful and meaningful, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Truly a natural at what he does. Thank you, thank you, thank you JP for your amazing work!!!!!

  • We are so happy that we selected JP as our wedding officiant. It was a pleasure to work with him and he made our ceremony so special. We had people complimenting us on how well he did. He kept it short (what we wanted), sweet and genuine and was so professional. We've been to a few weddings where friends had family or friends act as the officiant and we are so happy we went with a pro like JP (he just knew what to do and some of the little things that a non-pro might miss - he did not). You can't go wrong working with JP for your wedding ceremony and we highly recommend him!!
