I am a real minister (not ordained over the internet) with a real church (not in cyber-land) who performs wedding ceremonies by traveling throughout northeastern Pa. and northwestern N.J. to reception halls, homes, or parks, as well as at my church in Stroudsburg for heterosexual couples. Generally I do a simple but nice Christian ceremony, but I also have a very tasteful non-religious ceremony for those who desire something civil/secular. Experienced and dependable. Examples of my VERY reasonable fees are on my website. Contact by telephone (9a.m.-9p.m.) is preferred as its usually faster and much more personal, rather than depend on e-mails which can get lost in cyber-space. Read the reviews. I made them happy, I can do the same for you! That's my loving wife in the photo with me. Read less

The service went great and all the details were taken care of nicely by the Rev. Everything was well ordered and we felt very at ease with him. Originally we had contacted another officiant, but when we found out that she only had an internet ordination and had never ever preached at a church, we went searching and found Rev. Hary. We felt safer because he has a church and is legally qualified as well as experienced in doing weddings. Also, his fee was way less. It was a win win for us!

We found Rev. Hary was awesome for our wedding ceremony. Everything went as planned and he truly made us feel comfortable in everyway with everything. It was truly a positive experience with him and that's why I suggest other people use him too.

The words touched all our hearts and created an atmosphere of love as Rev. Hary did my wedding ceremony. Moving and powerful rather than just the usual mono-tone ritual stuff. I am so grateful that Rev. Hary did my wedding!

Rev. Hary was an excellent officiant for our wedding. He was flexible, professional, punctual, and caring. His fee was extremely low compared to some officiants who wanted double what he charged and more. His ceremony was top of the shelf quality and had a nice blending of traditional as well as a certain updated freshness and uniqueness that made it special. Rev. Hary had no problem traveling to our wedding site for both the rehearsal and wedding. He organized our rehearsal quickly and efficiently and didn't mind running us through it an extra time to be sure everyone knew what to do. Simply put, our experience with Rev. Hary was exceptional as he guided us from start to finish, and his friendliness not only to us, but to our family and friends was a true joy. Thank-you again Rev. Hary for making our special day SPECTATULAR!

Grace Chapel is a small quaint Chapel on beautiful property for photos. Rev James Hary was accommodating to my guests, and was kind and wonderful to me with my multiple phone calls and questions. [Bit of a nervouse Bride I was :) ]
My Ceremony was perfect :) Thank you Rev Hary!

Rev. Hary did an awesome job for us at our wedding at our American Legion hall. We just wanted something simple yet personal and Rev. Hary more than met our expectations. When I started looking for an officiant online I was surprised how many there were. They had great reviews and websites, but only Rev. Hary mentioned to be sure the minister meets the law to legally do weddings. Before I found him, I contacted 5 other officiants to check price and availability and get a feel to see if they were a good match for my wedding. None of them had a church that they were preaching at nor could they give me any church that they had preached at in the past, so I could check if they were for real. They responded with answers like "Don't worry I'm legal in all 50 states" or "Our church is in California" or "I've done lots of weddings look at my website". When we got our marriage license from the courthouse it had a notice in it titled "DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY" and explained that persons with internet ordinations may not be people permitted to perform marriages...."if they do not regularly preach to a congregation that regularly meets at a place of worship. You are advised to consult an attorney concerning the legality of such marriages." Obviously there must be a problem or the courthouse wouldn't be giving out these notices! So besides Rev. Hary having done an awesome job for us, we can rest assured he was legal to do it.

Rev. Hary is good at what he does, and that's why I was the third one in our family to use him. He's also a very pleasant guy to be around and talk with. We especially liked the way he made our rehearsal fun and relieved our nervousness.
