Jim was a wonderful officiant! He completely custom tailored our wedding ceremony and told the "story" of my now husband and I. He was an amazing communicator and kept me in the loop and on track for our big day. With so many details to keep track of, he assisted in keeping me informed. Wouldn't recommend anyone else. He threw many of his own special touches in there that just felt right for our ceremony! Thanks again Jim Dekornfeld!

Jim officiated the ceremony for my husband and I on September 10th, 2016. We informed him of how we met and he did a fantastic job of putting it together to come up with the wording, listening to any changes we wanted to make. He kept the ceremony light with some funny moments like I wanted. It was an outdoor wedding and he spoke loud and clear. I would definitely recommend Jim to others.

We just had our wedding and Jim was fantastic. His professionalism and quick responses made our day perfect. He always got back to us the same day and made the event stress free. I would highly recommend Jim. He was willing to travel and even rode a chair lift lol. He gave us a few ideas to make our day even more special and memorable. Thank you again Jim for making our day perfect.

Jim is an angel sent from God. He not only grasped my husband and my personalities, but wrote a wonderfully romantic,, and humorous love story about our reuniting, and made everyone laugh in the process. We loved the lightheartedness of the ceremony as it was both his and my second marriage. It was so good I may have to have him do a ceremony every year for our anniversary. All kidding and fun aside, Jim was the most professional, attentive, and enjoyable man to work with. I would recommend him far before anyone else. Thank you Jim!!!

Jim officiated for my wife and I on June 5th 2016. Neither of us had ever been to a same sex wedding and were not sure as to how the ceremony should go. Jim helped us to create a beautiful, meaningful and intimate ceremony which felt every bit our own and was more than we could have imagined. He was very open to incorporating different cultures, faith and traditions. He was really easy to work with, responding quickly, very organised and it always felt like he was really invested in our day. It was wonderful to have Jim be part of our wedding!

Jim was the most wonderful officiant we could possibly have imagined! His speech was witty, insightful and moving, and harmonized so perfectly with the the tone of our relationship. He is flexible and hugely professional, and helps take a lot of the anxiety out of the occasion. He also sends you a wonderful questionnaire beforehand, which is really fun to fill out and can be pleasantly revealing, as well as very touching. He made our wedding completely wonderful and I recommend him in the strongest terms to anyone!!

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!!
