I officiate non-denominational, interfaith, cross-cultural and same sex wedding ceremonies.

Ordained 20+ years, I’ve met hundreds of good, funny, wonderful couples. I’ve officiated wedding ceremonies as diverse as Muslim/Hindu, Muslim/Jewish, Christian/Atheist.

I’ve seen a pot-bellied pig as a ring bearer and a bride’s cousin belly dance with a sword balanced on her head as she presented the rings!

I’m not going to say that I’ve seen it all, but I’ve witnessed a lot. And I’ve loved it all!

I believe that in a wedding, a couple invites family and friends to celebrate the great good they have found in each other — and bear witness as they pledge to continue to create a life-giving life together. Folks put aside the messiness of daily life and remember what really matters — love, loyalty, family, friends. This is what I help a couple celebrate. . .

I don’t have pre-printed ceremonies as I work with a couple to create a ceremony that reflects them. Five years after your wedding no one will remember what I said, but they’ll remember the tone and feeling of it all.

Many couples who come to me desire a ceremony that honors the sacredness of what they’re doing without it being religious or denominational. “Sacred” (not “stuffy”) in the sense that when you give your word to another, that giving is bigger than the two of you.

Your life together began the first moment you met. Your wedding is an oasis along your journey— celebrating the life you’ve created and honoring the life you’re committed to creating.

My hope is that your ceremony provides a touchstone for your life together. Read less

We loved him, guests loved him. JP was so accommodating. He met with us whenever we needed, gave us plenty of suggestions for readings and vows, and was overall just a pleasant human being. So glad we snagged him! And yes, he moved out of the way for our first kiss! He is very reasonably priced.

We couldn't be happier to have found JP Reynolds to be our wedding officiant! Our ceremony was even more special with his words to us and our guests attending. From the beginning, JP was helpful in every way as we made our plans. He provided us with all the information we needed for the marriage license and guided us with our personal vows. Most of all, we appreciate his genuine happiness for our love, marriage and future.

JP is without a doubt the most incredible person and officiant we have ever met. He is kind, warm, sophisticated, funny,... the list goes on and on. He perfected our wedding and his words came from the heart. He is more than we could have ever wished for, a dream come true. We are truly honored to have had him perform our ceremony and make our special day beyond memorable.
We adore him and highly recommend him!

Due to religious differences between us and the two families, my now-husband and I wanted a non-denominational wedding officiant, and we found the perfect officiant in JP. He is a very down to earth guy who cracks jokes, and as he promised, he helped both make the ceremony fun and meaningful. The photographer agreed that the ceremony was meaningful!, but more importantly, I thought so too.

Additionally, he gave us some wonderful ideas to make our ceremony special and unique. When it came time for us to do our vows, he helped make our vows both personal and traditional. What I really loved was how he improvised what he said, based on the mood of the ceremony and what my husband and I said in our personal vows, and made everything flow beautifully. Our ceremony was wonderful, and it was so us too; thank you JP!!!

We cannot recommend JP Reynolds enough as a wedding officiant. He made our wedding incredibly personal, profoundly moving, and ensured that every aspect of the wedding exceeded expectations. His wisdom, professionalism and practical advice in advance of the wedding was invaluable and ensured that we both felt relaxed and secure that everything would run as smoothly as possibly on the big day.

Literally, all of our guests asked where we found our officiant and offered words of praise for the way that he captured our individual personalities and our love for each other in a way that was unique, personal and deeply heartfelt.

We both feel very lucky that we had JP to capture and articulate the love that we have for each other and that was confirmed for us by our friends’ and families’ reaction to our ceremony. He radiates the kind of caring, love and attention to detail that sets your mind at ease at a time that can otherwise be incredibly stressful.

We do not believe that there is any other officiant who could have made our wedding more special and hope that you will consider JP in the interest of having as wonderful a wedding experience as we did.

My career is in the wedding industry- I am a wedding planner. On October 10th, I had the unique experience of finally being a bride. One of the best decisions we made was asking JP to officiate our wedding. He is truly exceptional and it is hard to put into words how perfectly he captured us in our ceremony.
We loved meeting with him ahead of time to talk through the details- he had great ideas to make the ceremony perfectly tailored to us. At the same time, he was very flexible and open to our requests. He sent us over all sorts of traditional vows and allowed us to build our own that reflected our relationship. He was also an amazing guide during the process of writing our own vows. We really appreciated his advice and encouragement through this process.
I have to say that people were blown away by our ceremony. It was the perfect blend of the two of us and JP navigated that so well. People laughed and cried with us, but mostly they really saw our love shine through. None of this would have been possible without JP.
As both a bride AND a wedding planner, I can't say enough how lucky you are if you get to have JP be a part of your wedding. He will make it memorable, personal and perfect for you and your partner.
JP- I will never forget that day and your involvement in making is spectacular! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! We love you!! ~~ Heather & Nate

JP literally saved the day!

We had booked an officiant a year before the wedding but last minute things fell through. Our wedding planner recommended JP and when we met with him, my husband an i immediately knew he was going to be perfect for our big day. he made the ceremony feel like something out of a movie. it was a beautiful, yet simple and short (per our request) ceremony that captured everything we wanted. He was so sweet and helpful throughout the whole process. He was super understanding and just a very nice person in general. We felt as though he knew us after our first meeting together and that he really cared about our wedding. All in all, i totally recommend him to anyone who is having a wedding ceremony.

My husband and I had JP officiate our wedding in August, thanks to a recommendation from our wedding planner. Before committing, we met with JP to ensure he understood our "vision" for our ceremony. Not only did we feel comfortable then, but when it came time to officiate our actual wedding, we felt as though we were up there speaking to a friend. We still receive compliments on our wedding ceremony and couldn't recommend JP more! :)
