As a wedding officiant / Ordained Reverend, I strive to understand and embrace each individual’s spiritual path. I offer services for all faiths, inter-faith, non religious ceremonies and I recognize the marriage laws in Illinois. .

I believe a wedding ceremony should embody who the couple are - I have been officiating and providing wedding services in central Illinois and outlying areas for over seven years - it has been a privilege to get to know each couple and to craft and present a ceremony that expresses their spirituality, love and friendship. I have had to opportunity to officiate over 500 ceremonies and strive to make each ceremony unique to that couple and one that their family and friends will love as well. It is so important to really get to know the couple and share my experience, but also let them bring their own unique style to their wedding ceremony. The couples input is what truly makes a wedding ceremony special.

It is not only how a ceremony is written, but how it is presented -When I consult with couples they often ask, “Will our guests be able to hear you?” They will also comment on how often they witness ceremonies that are monotone or bland. As an officiant, my job only begins with creating a personalized ceremony. I rely on my extensive background in communications and theater and years of presentation experience to ensure that each ceremony is presented in an articulate and engaging style. It is important that a couple's guests feel that the officiant took the time to get to know them. A wedding is a couple's day to celebrate the love and friendship they have found in one another - it is important the every couple's ceremony not only represents them, but is presented with enthusiasm and professionalism.

I have the pleasure of working with my lovely wife Carolyn who serves as wedding rehearsal and ceremony coordinator. Carolyn has an extensive background in event promotions, she is there to assist in rehearsal and on the big day. She is a valuable addition and provides a fun and professional demeanor that puts every couple and their wedding party at ease. We are true wedding ceremony coordinators who do not believe in showing up ten minutes before your ceremony. This is your day – we want you and your family to enjoy the moment and let us take care of the details. I provide a free consultation - We also provide a wedding coordination service for those who need help in locating/contacting vendors and coordinating the day of.

Adam was our officiant for our wedding last weekend and he did an amazing job. He personalized the ceremony to us and made sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it. We also hired his wife Carolyn for Week of Wedding services. Together they worked to make sure that every detail was taken care of. We got so many compliments on the ceremony. I would highly recommend Adam and Carolyn. They did an outstanding job.

There is a lot to think about when it comes to getting married. Adam and Carolyn helped the day run smoothly and helped walk us through the process to make it much simpler. They were there from start to finish. The ceremony was beautiful and the vow suggestions really spoke to us. We were very happy that they were a part of our wedding.

Adam was simply incredible! He made our ceremony so personal and exactly what we wanted. He takes the time to get to know you and asks what you want you ceremony to be and then plans it with you down to the very last detail. His wife Carolyn is present the day of to act as a sort of "day of coordinator" telling the wedding party when to walk, etc. Adam's background in theatre gives him the perfect credentials for performing weddings; our ceremony was outside with gusty winds and all of our guests could hear him perfectly. He was the absolute perfect choice for our wedding!

If you would like a ceremony that is intimate and personal, Adam Jamsa will give you this and so much more. I wanted to have all of the spiritualness and love that I had felt growing up, but in a non-church ceremony. He worked hard to get to know us, kept us on track, and made sure that we were doing well overall. I never had to worry about the ceremony when planning with Adam. The ceremony was exactly what we had wanted, and my husband says, "he never could have imagined just how amazing it was". I made plenty of revisions and Adam always had a positive and quick reply. Our guests cannot stop raving about how it was the best wedding ever. They couldn't believe he wasn't a close friend, and loved the quirky stories he put in about us. Our guests have also shared that, "I was on the edge of my seat the entire time thinking and ...and...and", also "I usually zone out for a little during the ceremony and he did a great job captivating and making the whole thing intimate". So, Bride-- or awesome groom doing the research, if your eyes light up and you want to truly celebrate your day I know, hands down, Adam will go above and beyond your expectations. The wedding is about THIS moment, not the millions of small details or venue or food or whatever else there is that you are worried about -He truly does work with passion and I've enjoyed every minute with him!

We got married on April 2nd and used Adam Jamsa and his wife Carolyn as our officiant. Adam is an absolutely fantastic officiant! He takes great care in getting to know his couples and really incorporates their lives into the wedding to make a very personalized ceremony. We got so many compliments about how personalized and interesting the ceremony was! He is very thoughtful and attentive, and his wife is just as kind, warm, smiling and helpful as well! The two of them really made our day special and you would be crazy not to hire them!
