Jim at Daybreak Ceremonies was absolutely wonderful and we couldn't imagine anyone better to have officiated our wedding. We had a very small, intimate and simple wedding, in which he put together a beautiful ceremony and he was open to adding anything to the script, although there wasn't much to elaborate on besides a personal quote that was meaningful to us. Jim met our expectations on every level - great communication, very helpful when we had questions, incredibly flexible with us considering how much there is to do on a wedding day (no matter how small!) and extremely professional. A memorable event for everyone involved! I highly recommend Daybreak Ceremonies to anyone who is having a small and more informal wedding to large, more formal affairs.

We cannot recommend Jim highly enough. My husband and I were stuck in a bind with an officiant that fell through two weeks before our wedding. We were so very fortunate to find out that Jim was available. Jim went above and beyond to get to know us as a couple and ensure we co-created a very personalized ceremony. He helped out with ensuring the rehearsal went smoothly and on the day of the wedding he was professional and thoughtful and just perfect in his delivery of the ceremony. THANK YOU, JIM!

Jim was absolutely fantastic. Such a genuine guy. Very good with communication.

The ceremony he prepared was spot on. We have had so many people make a point to tell us how much they loved the ceremony.

You really will enjoy working with him!

Rev. Jim Dekornfeld did such an amazing job! My husband and I come from very different backgrounds, and both of us are not super traditional. Jim worked with us to build a completely custom, perfect ceremony for us. I like the Couple Questioneer because this allowed Jim to learn more about the two of us. He is very warm, down to earth, sweet, and friendly, while being very professional. He has the ability to make any situation work to make the ceremony a success and lead the ceremony with ease. We got so many compliments from our witnesses about what a phenomenal job he did!! And funny enough, during my whole wedding planning process, I actually met Jim before the wedding in my home town which he took time out his personal time to travel and have lunch with me so we could get to know each other outside of email. This is your special day, no matter how big or small your wedding is you definitely want to make the right decision, and you won't go wrong with Pastor Jim Dekornfeld! I will definitely recommend him on many occasions.

Reverend Jim made our wedding a unique and special occasion. His blend of humor and the aviation theme of the vows hit the nail on the head! He was able to put into words the aura of our relationship. We were so blessed to have found the perfect person to marry us!

He traveled through the snow to our home to marry us, at the last minute. He was more than accommodating to our needs and schedule.

For anyone considering a wedding or for that matter any special "life" event that deserves recognition or celebrating Kathe and I ,without reservation,recommend Jim DeKornfeld as your officiant/minister/event planner. Jim takes the time to listen to your story and to weave it in a way that shines light on the specialness and the uniqueness of it. The compassion,caring and nonjudgmental understanding ( not to mention patience) he exemplifies in his own life came to the table in preparing our wedding ceremony making it as many people later said " that was the best wedding I have ever been to".

We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our son's wedding! Jim was very responsive, organized and was able to capture our son & daughter in law's desire for a wonderful ceremony. Jim has great ideas & really performs a ceremony that is personal and heartfelt. This was our son's second marriage and he incorporated our son's & daughter in law's children into the ceremony beautifully.....by performing a "sand" ceremony that joined both families together. Jim took care of details that my husband & I didn't have to worry about and made our kids' wedding the dream coming true they had been hoping for!!
