  • 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.

  • My husband and I were looking for someone to officiate our wedding that would be a compromise for not getting married in a church (as my mom wanted). Jim came referred to us from our wedding planner and he was the indeed the perfect compromise. Jim made us feel at ease throughout the whole process by meeting with us twice before the wedding and explaining his background, beliefs, and experience. He calmed our nerves on the wedding day and made everything run absolutely perfectly. I would certainly recommend Jim to others looking for an Officiant that is legitimate.

  • 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!

  • Having the right officiant for my wedding, in my opinion, was one of the most important parts. It can really make or break a ceremony. Jim was truly amazing and went above and beyond. I could have not asked for a better officiant. He is such a wonderful person, and when he spoke during the ceremony - I looked out in the crowd and everyone was listening. He is a marvelous speaker. It was amazing working with Jim as well. He helps you build your own ceremony script to really make it your own. I would 100% recommend Jim to be your officiant. You will not regret it.

  • We hired Jim for our wedding and we are so glad that we did! We met with Jim a few times before the wedding and he was very personable and great on communication. We wanted to have a religious ceremony and Jim delivered exactly what we wanted. We had a quite a few guests come up to us after the wedding and say that it was one of the best ceremonies that they had ever been to. Thank you!

  • Having the right officiant at our wedding was an important aspect to both my wife and I. Jim was definitely the right person for us. Like many others couples, when we began our search, we emailed and talked to a few different people. What really stuck out to us about Jim, beyond his overall message (which is wonderful and really resonated with both of us), was the fact that before we even began talking about how the ceremony would go, Jim took the time to ask us about us, our faiths, our upbringings etc., really getting to know us. By our second call we could picture Jim marrying us as he spoke. Jim’s ceremony was wonderful and everyone at the wedding loved it. We had several guests tell us at later times what a beautiful ceremony it was. Overall a wonderful person, very thoughtful on everything, and excellent ceremony. You will love it.

  • Jim was definitely more prepared for our ceremony than we were - and thank God for that! From the beginning, he was so kind, responsive and has a great energy that makes you and your guests feel at ease. Our ceremony was beautiful and we have Jim to thank for wonderful experience!

  • Jim did a wonderful job with our interfaith ceremony. He spoke beautifully in a way that recognized both of our religions and it brought our family together. After the wedding, several of our family and friends brought up the ceremony to say how much they liked Jim's speech. Jim is also an extremely experienced professional when it comes to managing the ceremony itself. With all of his experience, Jim can give useful practical guidance on how to organize the ceremony and prevent any stumbles. (For example, he walked us through how to seat our parents so that my father-in-law wouldn't step on my wife's dress after walking her down the aisle.) Coordinating small things like that may seem immaterial, but it took away any anxiety during the day. During our ceremony, he subtly guided us, and made sure we looked good. We're so glad we chose him to be our officiant.

  • When we were interviewing officiants, we knew right away after our phone interview with Jim that we would likely book his services. Once we sat down and went over the options for the service it was the perfect balance for us. The comments from out guests of how wonderful our ceremony was and we truly believe it set the tone for our reception. We are so happy with how well Jim did and we would recommend interviewing Jim to see if he would be the right fit for your ceremony too.

  • Fantastic! We highly recommend Mr. Burch for you wedding. We have attended a few weddings before our own and we were nervous about what type of officiant to have at our own wedding. We looked high and low and found Mr. Burch. He was fantastic. Really allowed us to customize our ceremony and helped us with the flow of our ceremony. He was flexible, kind, knowledgeable, and professional. Highly recommend for your special day!

  • We are so thankful to have found Jim and not only have the chance to get to know him as a person but to have him perform our wedding ceremony. He walked us through everything start to finish and he got to know us and helped us customize our ceremony so it was perfectly suited for us. He was so down to earth, warm and welcoming and was a wonderful speaker. We had numerous guests come up to us and specifically tell us how wonderful Jim was and what a beautiful ceremony we had. The best part was the fact that we were SO nervous and it was hard to remember what we were supposed to do and when when, but we really did not have to worry about that as Jim guided us, whispered to us and directed us along the way so we could follow his lead on what we were supposed to be doing. He was also such a calm and comforting presence that it calmed my nerves. Because of this, our ceremony went seamlessly! We highly recommend Jim and encourage you to meet him to see for yourself that he will help you desi... Read more

  • Jim did a perfect job with our wedding ceremony! From our initial planning meeting and to the actual ceremony, Jim made us feel completely comfortable. He is professional, friendly, and we loved that he had a packet of options for us to choose from - it made everything a piece of cake! Our wedding guests were coming up to us all evening to tell us how beautiful and meaningful the ceremony was.

  • I am so thankful my husband and I found Jim to officiate our wedding. Neither of us are particularly religious, so we did not have a pastor/priest that many couples go to when they start to plan their wedding. We were open about our views with Jim and not only was he completely respectful, but he truly exceeded our expectations during the ceremony. Everything was thoughtful and rooted in the meaning of marriage and love, and he was so well-spoken. Every single one of our wedding guests said how great he was and many even said it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Some officiants can be boring or monotone, or speak to things that are not important to the couple, so I realize how nerve wracking searching for an officiant can be. I promise that Jim is not of these things, and you will be so glad that you chose him. We highly highly recommend.

  • Jim was very easy to work with. He provided us a "menu" of ceremony options ranging across the entire religious spectrum (including no-religion). We pick and chose the ones we wanted to hear, and Jim delivered the rest. He was prompt and professional, and his speech got rave reviews among guests afterwards.

  • Jim absolutely did a fantastic job with our ceremony. The flexibility of his wedding program allowed us to create a ceremony that truly reflected our values as a couple and he executed flawlessly. Multiple guests made it a point to let us know it was one of the best ceremonies they had the pleasuring of witnessing. Jim is a true professional who did not disappoint.
