INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
YES. As Chaplains, we do not have a church but we travel in Dane County to where the Couples wants to get married: home or personally owned land, parks, public buildings, hotels, theaters, etc.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
James: Black or Grey Business Suit, White Long-sleeve Shirt, Blue or Red tie. Connie: Black Dress or Pants Suit: Optional White Stole
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
YES. Our ceremonies are totally personal culminating in our telling the Couple's love story and road to commitment. Our goal is to touch hearts and funny-bones such that all who come feel a connection to the couple and their ceremony!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
YES. We have a Vows Packet they can use to create their own vows, both Wedding Vows and Ring Vows, or they can use material from any other source, including their own creativity.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
NO. We have four reading packets the Couple may use in selecting their readings: Biblical, Literary, Multicultural and Popular. The Couple can also choose reading from any other source.
How long are your ceremonies?
20 - 30 minutes. Any shorter and the guests aren't sure why they came to such a short ceremony and any longer and attentions tend to wane.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
NO. We offer Spiritual Relationship Counseling which consists of four sessions with Rev. James and 12 lessons the couple do on their own, sharing with each other once each lesson is complete to find areas of agreement and disagreement, things to work on in the sessions. This is not required.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
YES. We don't need a rehearsal to perform a glorious wedding, but we bring organization and experience to the rehearsal, the authority of a minister to get the job done, and humor to ease tensions and make the rehearsal fun for all.
Do you supply a sound system?
NO. Both Rev. Connie and Rev. James have powerful voices such that they do not need a sound system to be heard in most settings. If the couple wishes to make sure their vows are heard, they should consult with the venue or their DJ to see what services they offer.

Connie(and Jim too!) are the best wedding officiants. They are so open and made the whole process so easy and comfortable. They were always there to answer questions and every time we met with them we always left with a smile on our face. When it came to our ceremony Connie was so detailed, passionate and was a perfect fit to do our ceremony. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I love that we picked such a loving and happy couple to officiate our wedding to show us how true and real love really is!

While both Connie and Jim are fantastic we did have Jim perform our ceremony (we let them decide who would get our wedding because we couldn't choose!). To say that we had a unique ceremony is an understatement, but Jim was happy to work with us and we got nothing but compliments from our guests about what a personal and touching ceremony we had. I cannot recommend these two more!

Connie and James were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. From our first meeting in their home, they said something that rang true for us. "You're already married; this ceremony is just a way to make it official." Truer words could not have been spoken; it was at this point we knew we wanted them to marry us. Connie and James made the entire process (seemingly daunting) easy, yet personal, which we appreciated since we were planning from almost 1000 miles away. They were excellent with email communication, always responding within a few hours. The love story they wrote showed that they had taken the time to understand who we are, both as individuals and as a couple.

Everything the day of our wedding went off without a hitch. The ceremony was everything we discussed and Connie helped cue us all from start to finish. She has a way with words that fills you with emotion and excitement that was infectious for all who attended. We knew she was fabulous, but many of our guests commented that this was the best ceremony they had ever attended. It was a true reflection of us, as a couple, and the journey we have been on together. We couldn't agree more!

We would recommend Connie and James in a heartbeat to anyone. They were an essential piece in our wedding and we couldn't have done it without them. We will certainly live happily ever after.

We just had our wedding this last weekend and Connie did a wonderful job conducting the ceremony! We had planned on an outdoor ceremony and somewhat last minute the rain force us inside. We had a contingency plan, but did not have it nearly as well thought out, and Connie did a fantastic job of rolling with the punches, working with the other vendors, and making sure that everything still went off without a hitch! We initially found Jim & Connie because we are not religious, but still wanted a professional. We did not expect to have such a tailored ceremony based off of our lives and our story. Everything was beautiful and we could not have had a better experience!!

Connie officiated my marriage in September 2013. Both Connie and James were a pleasure to work with. They welcomed us into their home and helped us plan the perfect ceremony. Not only did they create and officiate a beautiful ceremony, but they also took responsibility to organize all of our vendors at the ceremony (musician, florist, ushers, bridal party, etc.). It felt amazing knowing that Connie was taking care of EVERYTHING and I could relax the day of the wedding!

Our ceremony was perfectly tailored to reflect us as a couple. The ceremony hit every emotion that I wanted my guests to experience… a little religion, humor and love. It was perfect for my husband and I, Connie worked with us to customize it exactly to our requirements.

In addition to creating a beautiful ceremony, Connie and James became friends and confidants during our wedding planning process. My brother passed away unexpectedly 8 weeks before our wedding. Connie and James were sensitive to this tragedy and offered to speak with me as they are certified counselors. They helped me prepare for the wedding emotionally, as I was unsure I would feel well enough to go through with it after my brother’s passing. They added a beautiful passage in the ceremony to honor my brother.

All of the guests at our wedding raved about Connie’s performance. I will be forever thankful to Connie and James for making our wedding ceremony perfect.

We had Connie as our officiant and all of our family and friends loved the ceremony that she and James put together. James and Connie were easy to work with and very responsive during the ceremony planning process. Knowing that Connie would be cueing all parts of the ceremony was very reassuring and took some stress out of the day. One of the best parts of the ceremony was the "Love Story" section - it really added such a personal touch!

Thanks James and Connie!

Our Officiant was Connie Engmann of Happily Ever After Wedding Officiants. She shares in her business with her husband James. The two of them design the most beautiful ceremonies. Our guests commented it was the most heartfelt service they had ever attended. They go above and beyond, even during the stress of the “getting ready” process, both Connie and James were available to counsel and support us. The two of them genuinely care for their couples and it was a wonderful experience to work with them.

James and Connie Engmann went above and beyond in providing their services. They were always very prudent and punctual and reminded us frequently about what work needed to be done so that we stayed on track. They sent us tons of information about planning the ceremony and we could pick and choose what we wanted to include or come up with our own parts. Most importantly, they were just as goofy and in love as we were. They had amazing personalities and invited us into their home lovingly. We always felt welcome in their presence and we were treated just like we were well-known friends. Highly recommended!!

James and Connie are the sweetest, most caring and spiritual individuals I've ever met...when Connie was performing our ceremony, it felt as though we were being maried by one of our family members! We met with James and Connie several times to go over our wedding ceremony vision/ideas and they sculpted everything into the perfect ceremony for us! Our family and friends loved the personal stories, the unique rituals, and the flow of the ceremony. I would (and do) recommend them to anyone who wants a memorable and beautiful ceremony that people will remember for years to come!

I have known Connie and Jim for several years as I am a wedding vendor myself, so when it was time for my own wedding I was beyond excited to call them and ask if they would officiate my ceremony. After working with them at many weddings throughout the years, I had absolutely no reservations and never a thought that I should look into other options. You will not only be working with two people who know weddings inside and out, but you will be interacting with people who truly are kind and care about each of their couples. They don't just come in and do the job they were hired to do. They will go above and beyond to create a ceremony that is personal and truly meaningful. Connie and Jim have many, many options to choose from as far as ceremony ideas, formats, readings, vows, etc. They present all the information to you in a very user-friendly, easy to read and easy to choose format so you don't have to do much work to create a ceremony if you don't want to, as they do it all for you! However, they were more than willing to incorporate our own ideas and our own vows and readings into the ceremony. The bottom line is that they are passionate about what they do and they just want to create a ceremony that represents who you are as a couple.

They are very professional yet very welcoming and friendly. They bring a sense of ease, calm and joy not only to the planning part, but also to your wedding day.

I have no reservations in recommending Happily Ever After and would encourage anyone who is getting married to call them. Once you talk with either Connie or Jim you'll know you made a choice that will not only make your wedding planning easier, but will also start your marriage with a meaningful ceremony that will last a lifetime.

It was meant to be from the get-go...my now husband's work "mascot" is a rubber duck & when we walked in to meet with Connie & James of Happily Ever After Wedding Officiants, there were bride & groom ducks sitting on their coffee table. Connie made our ceremony one that we will never forget & our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended! We laughed, we cried & we loved every minute of it! If you are getting married in the Madison area, your search for an officiant is over...call Happily Ever After for your happily ever after :)

After not getting any response from the officiants on the Dane County website, my fiancée and I decided to set up a meeting with James and Connie at Happily Ever After. We were a little bit hesitant because the name sounded schmaltzy however any concerns we had disappeared once we met with them. James and Connie are the nicest people and they truly love what they are doing. All they do are weddings and it really shows in how prepared they are. You get to put together the perfect wedding ceremony that complements your relationship. My wife and I are not religious and that wasn't an issue for them. Instead our ceremony focused on our love story and how perfectly compatible we are. Everyone in attendance at our wedding commented on how fantastic the ceremony was and how it was the best ceremony they can remember attending. Do yourself a favor and call James and Connie right now, you won't be disappointed.

I haven't a lot of time to leave a review, but I give James and Connie another 5 of 5 in every category for my wedding.

They customized, rehearsed, rewrote and delivered with perfection our outdoor ceremony. It stressed what my wife and I each felt was important to us. The ceremony was a perfect edition of the kind of bond my wife and I share and Connie and James fantastically facilitated the entire thing.

We have friends and family contacting us days later about how fantastically unique and touching our ceremony was. This is due to James and Connie’s willingness to explore personality, values and belief of each individual customer and to bring out the best in what they have to share on their special day: individuality and partnership in the bond of marriage.

Thank you James and Connie, for being our officiants and for being our friends. Best wishes going forward. I hope to see you in the very near future, someway, somehow. It has been a sincer pleasure, even weeks later:)

Words can't begin to explain how wonderful Jim and Connie are and how great our experience with them was. We knew as soon as we met them that they were the perfect people to marry us and we knew our cermony was in the best possible hands. I can't tell you how many times over the last few weeks we have talked about our wedding ceremony and how wonderful it was. It was so fitting to us and the kids. So many people commented on how it was the best one they have ever been to and how much they enjoyed listening to our love story . We can't thank them enough for making our ceremony such a wonderful, touching, funny, amazing time. We will cherish it forever! Thank you again Jim and Connie for everything you did to make our wedding ceremony so special and personal. We could not have dreamed of a more perfect way to join together our family.

Jim and Connie made the entire wedding experience wonderful for us! Meeting with them before the day made us feel quite comfortable because they have thought of everything! We were absolutely thrilled with the way our ceremony turned out and they worked with us to give us a ceremony that was unique and exactly what we wanted. I can't tell you how many of our guests told us it was the best wedding ceremony they had been too!

We selected James Engmann to officiate our wedding ceremony and could not have been happier with our choice - in many respects, the second-most central decision of our wedding day (after the choice of spouse). James was not only excellent on the wedding day itself, during which he acted as a ringleader to all the other vendors, but in the year leading up to the ceremony he was extremely helpful with the planning, acting as a trusted confidante and advisor with regard to the selection of venues and vendors. He and Connie both got to know us, and our story as a couple, personally, and respected all our preferences and eccentricities, big and small. Best of all, James took our personal "love story" and told it with wonderful passion, care, and accuracy on our wedding day. We couldn't have done it without Happily Ever After, and unreservedly recommend James and/or Connie to anyone getting married in the Madison area.

James and Connie are amazing!! If you are looking for an officiant who is personable, well organized, and caring then Happily Ever After is the right choice. Connie took all the stress away from the very start. She performed the most touching ceremony that our guests are still talking about. Connie made our wedding day perfect!

Rev. James officiated our ceremony this summer and we could not have been happier. The content was personal and touching (absolutely no cookie cutter verbiage - which was so important in making this our own). We received so many compliments that day at how wonderful the ceremony was.

In addition the amazing content, Rev. James orchestrated the ceremony so that a rehearsal wasn't even necessary. Everything ran so smoothly, and with so little effort on our part.

Thank you for making out day special and individual - it was the best part of the day!

James and Connie took the time to get to know us. It meant alot to us that they genuinely cared about who we are and what we wanted, not only for that day, but for the rest of our lives. It also meant alot that they were two people who still care deeply for each other after years of marriage. They were real, honest and fun people.

James did a fantastic job with our service! He instantly connected with our family and friends when the first opportunity they had to meet him was at the rehearsal. Happily ever after was recommended to me by a mutual friend and I would definitely recommend them to any couple who is seeking a fun, friendly, professional team that will make your day amazing!!!
Thank you James and Connie!!

Jim and Connie completely understood what we wanted in our ceremony, even when we weren't completely sure how it should look. I've lost count of the number of people who have told us that they have never been to such a wonderful ceremony. We can't thank them enough for not only officiating our ceremony but for helping us create a ceremony that was so personal and meaningful. If we had to hire them over and over we would - hands down!

Jim and Connie were the absolute best. We could have not asked for more when it came to their services and they were worth every penny. From first contact they really understood the relationship my fiancé and I had and took a personal interest in our story. We were able to choose exactly what we wanted said. And when we couldn't think of something, they were there to help guide us along. They even gave us the idea of the sand ceremony (a lovely way to symbolize the blending of a family). They made us feel so special, including my fiancé’s son. Jim really made an impression on him. When our wedding day came, they made us feel at ease and made the event so touching and special. All of our guests raved of Connie and the ceremony. They deserve every star I gave them.

They crafted the ceremony for us and it was perfect. While they offered suggestions as to each part of the ceremony, they assured us that we could alter any of it as we liked. They even helped us to put together a customized section of the ceremony to include my wife's daughter, giving me as her new step-father the chance to remind her that the wedding ceremony not only joined myself to my wife but all of us in a family.

I would reccomend them to anyone at all hoping to create a special ceremony.

Over the years, my family has been gifted with Jim and Connie's generosity in sharing their passion for love and talent for creating unbelievably unique and moving messages for numerous ceremonies and life celebrations. Most recently, I was married to the love of my life and Connie was there to make this union one of the most beautiful things ever witnessed by our family and friends. The degree of detail and personal touches left my new husband and I floating on a cloud - our guests left feeling inspired and the event was overflowing with abundant love. We are so lucky to have found each other...and our families are SO very lucky to have found Jim and Connie to help us celebrate all of life's most memorable moments. I can sincerely say that my favorite part of our wedding day was not the dress, the cake, the food, the drinks, the dance...but the time we stood in front of our guests, led by Connie, expressing our vows and openly sharing our love story with our family and friends. Thank you for such a precious gift!

My husband and I met with Connie and Jim in their home and couldn't of felt more welcomed! They were kind and generous and made us feel like our wedding was the most important one they've ever done. It was great to feel their support up to the day of the wedding and even more so on the day of. With Jim's wedding experience, we couldn't of made it through our rehearsal and wedding without his guidance. From helping to line up our attendants, to keeping the ceremony meaningful and humorous, he was truly the best wedding officiant I've ever met! We got so many compliments on our ceremony because of Jim's heartfelt and personal words about our lives together that truly touched us and our guests.

Jim and Connie are Wisconsin's most gifted officiants. We received so many wonderful comments about the special touches of the ceremony and how they shared our unique story. The love they generated in the room was infectious and inescapable and I don't know if any officiants out there have the amazing talent they have. As an LGBT couple, we found we could be truly open. Their thoughtfulness and guidance through the process was priceless.

Thank you again Jim and Connie for a ceremony truly tailored to us and for the unforgettable words and moments we will have for a lifetime.

Jim Engmann was a wonderful officiant. He helped calm me (the bride) on the day of the wedding. He made sure that everyone was present and ready for the next steps. He also was the officiant for my best friend and helped make a great ceremony start after a 40 minute delay due to dressing issues. He is wonderful! I highly recommend him! He is also very sensitive to religious and non-religious ceremonies.

Connie did an amazing job! Our guests commented on how intimate and relaxed the ceremony was, which is what we wanted. And 150 guests is not what I would normally call an intimate setting number

Happily Ever After did a wonderful job from start to finish in making our wedding ceremony all about us:) Reverend Jim officiated & really tailored the ceremony to include personal touches. We received SO many compliments on the ceremony...many said it was "the most beautiful wedding ceremony they'd ever seen!" We couldn't have asked for a more professional officiant for our special day. He really made the ceremony feel warm & heartfelt. We would recommend Happily Ever After to any & all couples!
