  • I lost track of how many times people came up to me after the wedding saying how much they loved and connected with Jim’s sermon and ceremony. He was professional, kind, flexible and a welcome addition to our wedding. Even when we had AV equipment issues during the ceremony he took it in stride and kept the ceremony going with little to no interruption. He also took the time to visit with people after the ceremony and my dad (the son of a pastor) thoroughly enjoyed speaking with him. He was a hit and was happy to help us design the right ceremony for us. We consider ourselves exceptionally lucky that he was willing to officiant our wedding and would highly recommend him.

  • We like many couples this past spring had to make the hard choice to change our original wedding plans. We still wanted to get married though, so we called up Jim and just about instantly had a date and a plan! He made it so easy for us from the deposit to the gorgeous location behind his house (such a nice hidden oasis!!) and a ceremony so much more thoughtful than we could ever have asked for! Really though he came up with such a thoughtful and sweet ceremony for us non-religious types who he had never in met before! It felt personal and made the day everything we could have asked for, even though it was far from the original plan. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Jim as an officiant!

  • In the midst of this COVID 19 pandemonium, Jim agreed to perform our small wedding ceremony, and we couldn't be more appreciative. He knocked it out of the park. My wife and I, our two physical attendees, and our "virtual attendees" were all very impressed by the proceedings. Even upon needing to switch our venue multiple times, Jim had no issue in accommodating us. We look back and are so happy we asked Jim to be our officiant. It was a fantastic decision.

  • Jim provided us with an outstanding wedding experience - with relatively short notice. The process of scheduling the ceremony was easy and very professional. He provided us with a great service at a great value that I would recommend to anybody in the area.

  • Jim Burch was the exact officiant we were looking for to perform our small, intimate wedding. He is professional, organized, and really cares about the couple’s needs and wants. His ceremony options have something for everyone. We wanted a shorter ceremony and Jim worked with us to create a plan. He was also able to meet and plan through video calls which was extremely helpful. We highly recommend Jim Burch!

  • I was searching around for officiants and found Jim on Weddingwire and after a meeting with Jim on the phone, we knew that he had to be our officiant. We were able to customize parts of our ceremony which we loved being able to do. Not only was our ceremony amazing but we got to keep paper copies of our vows. I would recommend Jim to anyone!

  • Planning a wedding during COVID times was a very stressful experience. However, Jim was extremely gracious and more than flexible during that time. His efforts to help us is one of the many reasons that we were able to make things work out. We were in fact one of the lucky ones, as we were able to go through with our wedding, as originally planned, this past April 2021. Our wedding turned out beautifully, and Jim did a fabulous job as our officiant! Jim helped ensure a smooth ceremonial process, provided much needed guidance throughout the planning process, and even some creative ideas to add some extra flair to the ceremony. We would highly recommend!

  • In these times of COVID, Jim made my husband and I feel so safe and well taken care of. He created a ceremony for is that was so thoughtful and lovely. Because of COVID, our guest list was very small but we were surrounded by so much love that it did not matter. Jim had such a huge part in our special day, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

  • We were incredibly lucky to have found Jim to officiate our wedding. Even under such short notice (two weeks) and while we were scrambling to get everything together, Jim helped us set up our perfect ceremony. Everything came together beautifully. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Even though the venue and weather just happened to work out perfectly, Jim provided a wonderful emotional atmosphere. You can hear happiness and joy in every word that he spoke. We want to thank Jim for all of his help in setting up a beautiful ceremony, helping us put together a wonderful program for our friends and family, and really giving us the best day of our lives. We absolutely would hire him again and suggest that anyone looking for an officiant should contact Jim.

  • Jim was the officiant for our wedding. My wife and I were really glad that we found him. He was very kind, professional and considerate. Jim made the process very easy and he worked with us to include certain things from the bride's/wife's culture. We were very happy with our ceremony as it was thought provoking, fun and memorable. Many of our guests told us that they loved the ceremony, and one of our friend's told us that the ceremony was so beautiful that it made him cry. It was an amazing ceremony and day that my wife and I will always remember. Thank you Jim for making this day extra special for us!

  • My husband and I are so glad we chose Jim to officiate our wedding! After our first meeting with him, we felt that he was so personable and everything he was saying to us really meshed with our beliefs and needs for our wedding. He has a very nice ceremony with many options so that couples can pick certain readings and selections that work best for them. When we met with Jim the final time before our wedding, he went through the ceremony using our choices and explained how the ceremony would go. I received so many compliments on the wedding day about the ceremony and how wonderful it was. We are so happy with how our ceremony went and we would highly recommend Jim.

  • My wife and I eloped last month during COVID and while we weren't able to have the wedding we had initially planned, we wanted something intimate and special with our closest family and friends. Jim brought with him the sense of ritual, spirituality, and ceremony that we had hoped for on our special day, and he also did so while pleasing two families of very different religious backgrounds. Unlike many vendors we spoke with, Jim opened not with a discussion of prices or timing, but instead by explaining his theory of love and the universe. My wife and I were raised very differently but we both agreed with his perspective and the ceremony, the homily, and the lead-up to the event were carried out with the upmost respect, warmth, and understanding. We are very glad we went with a professional like Jim, as opposed to having a friend or family member officiate, as it took pressure off the day for our few guests, he is an amazing speaker and showrunner for even a small ceremony, and ...

  • Jim was a wonderful officiant. We wanted to incorporate a little bit of religion even though my now husband and I were not religious. He created a beautiful blend that made our parents and grandparents happy but did not bore our friends! He was always very kind and accommodating to our needs!
