When we started looking for an officiant our main goal was to find someone who was non-denominational and would give us a ceremony that was meaningful for us without all the religious stuff. It was tough to find this in GA. The first few people we contacted were booked on our day. And then we found Jeremiah.

We laughed a lot during our consultation with him and I just knew he was the one. He was willing to do whatever we wanted - religious or not - and offered his expertise as advice on how to structure the ceremony.

The hardest part for me was being the daughter of a pastor (my mom) and wanting to make things comfortable, yet not religious. I didn't want long prayers or anything that would make me roll my eyes and not be true to myself, yet I also didn't want to disrespect my mom or make things weird for anyone. Jeremiah was awesome in his planning and made sure to keep me comfortable while respecting my mom.

We opted for both the Irish and Native American blessings, neither of which were religious, but both very spiritual. I liked that he suggested that.

His little jokes during the ceremony were great, since we are both kinda not serious and yet the jokes weren't cheesy or showman-like. It was perfect.

We went on a gut feeling with Jeremiah and we were right to trust the gut. He did a great job and I couldn't have been more pleased.

Multiple guests approached me to state that it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever attended. Jeremiah is warm, friendly, charming, witty and has an impressive booming Irish voice. He is very good at his job and gave my dad specific instructions which my dad appreciated immensely. I could not imagine having anyone else preside over our wedding.

We had a hard time finding an officiant for our wedding who would agree to marry an interracial and interfaith (Arab & American) couple. Everyone we approached discriminated against us and wouldn't even give us an appointment. Jeremiah was great, welcomed us into his home and never made us feel like we had anything to defend. He officiated our wedding beautifully and even got a few laughs along the way. Spend 5 minutes with him and you'll feel like you've known him forever!

How do I begin... Jeremiah was a preferred vendor for the venue we were getting married at. My husband and I went to interview with him and fell in love with him. We left with all of our wedding vows already done! At the wedding he came to visit me right before the wedding to just remind me of a couple things. This was the 1st time my mom had met him. She thought he was hilarious! I was starting to get emotional when it was my turn to say the vows, he stopped for a minute and looked at me and said "If you can get through this, there is a ring for you at the end." That was awesome! Everyone got a good laugh including me and I was able to pull my self back together! He had a couple more jokes throughout the ceremony that were just classic! It was perfect for us because we are not serious ppl at all, but it was just right. Everyone came up to me and was raving about him! My photographer had just got engaged and she said, "I am using him for my wedding!"

Jeremiah Okeefe-West was an amazing officiant. He made our wedding ceremony so special. When we met with him he was organized and helped us choose everything for our ceremony. He also gave us the opportunity to include our daughter in our ceremony. Every one of our guests talked about how amazing he was. We would refer him to anyone who is looking for an officiant.

We were so pleased that we chose Jeremiah for our officiant. It took us a long time to find him, but it was well worth the search! We had one planning meeting in which we reviewed the typicaly ceremony, discussed some changes we wanted to make, and selected most of our readings, prayers, etc. We completed the rest of the planning via email. On the day of the wedding, Jeremiah met with each of us (separately) beforehand, and with my father, to review the flow of the ceremony and what we each needed to do. It calmed us all down. Jeremiah added some humor to the ceremony, but still preserved the gravity of the event of getting married. He made us really comfortable throughout. Our guests loved him as much as we did! Great choice for a non-denominational officiant.

I was so happy to have Jeremiah O'Keefe West as the officiant for my wedding. He has a wonderful Irish accent, but not too strong that you can't understand him. He also provides comic relief at just the right moments. We thought he was great.
