We were married by the Rev. Janet Kenworthy in the garden of the Given Library in the village of Pinehurst. We wanted to comment about the beautiful wedding that Rev. Janet planned for us, especially the words she spoke. We would very much recommend her services -- she provided us a very memorable ceremony for which we are very grateful.

We had to look for an officiant for our wedding about two weeks before the big day, and were really fortunate to find Jim and Janet from Daybreak Ceremonies! In that short period of time, they managed to put together a beautiful customized ceremony script that was very personal and reflected exactly the tone we wanted. For this they use couples questionnaires that you have to fill separately, and working on them was a great experience for both of us as a preparation for the wedding day. They were also super flexible to make any change we suggested in the final script, which included adding a bilingual text! The day of the wedding, Janet did a great job as our officiant, and many of our guests complimented us on how beautiful the ceremony was and how it reflected well our relationship. Like probably many couples, we wanted our ceremony to be the most special part of our wedding day, and Janet and Jim made this really possible.

A wedding is supposed to be about the Bride and Groom, yet that rarely happens. Everyone tries to make it about them instead, causing stress and frustration for those who this day should be about. That is not the case with Jim DeKornfeld and Daybreak Ceremonies. Jim made our day so special and made it about us. He started off by sending us both a questionnaire to get to not only know us better, but to know our love story as well. A couple days later he emailed us a rough draft of the script. I was blown away by how gifted Jim was in his writing and about how the whole ceremony was catered to what we wanted, instead of something basic and traditional. Jim was so accommodating and made sure that the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. So many of my guests told me afterwards that they thought the ceremony was beautiful and very well written. I highly recommend Jim DeKornfeld for your wedding needs. He will not disappoint!!

I contacted Jim at Daybreak Ceremonies about ten days before the date we wanted for our small ceremony, which was a National Holiday. After running into a number of road blocks due to all government offices being closed, as well as a lot of businesses closed on our wedding date, Jim said yes to officiating our ceremony on our chosen date without hesitation! He was so helpful with information from the very first phone conversation! Jim was very warm, yet professional. All of the email correspondence from Jim was timely, efficient, and easy to follow with the information he needed from us. The ceremony script he put together fit us to a tee, he provided us with several drafts so that we could add, or change any of it. It was truly a ceremony "custom created" just for our occasion! In the 11th hour I was in search of a photographer, and Jim had a great recommendation for that too...John Gessner of Pinehurst did a super job! I can't say enough good things about the services Jim Dekornfeld, and Daybreak Ceremonies provide! My special day was perfect...uncomplicated, easygoing, & very unstressful, in large part thanks to Jim!! I will gladly recommend Daybreak Ceremonies to anyone in need of a Celebrant for whatever occasion!! I'm so glad to know Jim Dekornfeld and the services Daybreak Ceremonies provides!

We absolutely loved working with Jim. We knew we wanted a unique ceremony that demonstrated our love story. Jim crafted a touching ceremony that friends and family alike commented on during the reception. He was very flexible with his time despite my husband and I living in a different states. In short, he was a joy to work with and we couldn't imagine working with a different officiant.

Contacted Daybreak because we knew we wanted to craft our own ceremony that felt just right for us. We wanted it to be personal and inclusive for all in attendance. Jim guided us through the daunting task, delivering everything we wanted and more. He was in touch through countless emails, phone and FaceTime in the months leading up to the wedding (even though he was traveling for much of that time!) He also met with me in person when I visited from out of town, even though he wasn't available to officiate for us. Janet Kenworthy, one of Daybreak's celebrants, ended up officiating our wedding and we loved having her - she is a free-spirited and genuine human being that spoke with clarity and heart. We met with her about 3 months prior to the wedding, which I highly recommend. It's nice to get familiar! Many of our guests commented on how touching the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed it. My feeling is that you can't go wrong with Daybreak Ceremonies, based on our wonderful experience.

Lauren,

Working with you and Cartney was an honor. The love you share and the way you express your love to each other made my task easy. I wish you many wonderful years together.

We worked with Jim in coordinating, booking, and writing our ceremony script and it was a real delight! Jim was very thoughtful in everything he did as well as organized. He has these questionnaires that the bride and groom fill out (separately) that asks about your history as a couple, the story, feelings, preferences, etc. Based on this questionnaire he put together a draft ceremony and I cannot reiterate how “on spot” he was with EVERYTHING! It was really amazing…as my husband and I were reading through the draft, we were shocked at how well he nailed it…it fit us perfectly (short and sweet, meaningful, with a slight touch of humor). Jim organized the officiant who was available for our wedding day (Janet) and that was that. Janet was very timely and considerate (checking with us on preferred wardrobe); we received so many compliments on the ceremony from our guests and how it was “so us”. Jim also worked with our coordinator on a little surprise that coincided with our story of meeting (fortune cookies with our names and wedding date inside). I would highly recommend Daybreak Ceremonies and Jim for any and all wedding ceremony services!
