Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jewish, Muslim
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. I've been to 700 different venues or sites in Northern California. I must know them all by now!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Black suit, white shirt, great tie.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes, of course I am.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes. I ask all couples to do a little writing ...
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Yes, just a sample though; my couples are free to construct and supplement their ceremony anyway they like.
How long are your ceremonies?
Just the right length to keep everyone engaged; length varies somewhat according to the needs of the couple.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. I offer that as an additional service but only when asked.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I generally leave that to the coordinator because rehearsal is the walking and the standing only, not the ceremony itself. In the absence of a coordinator I have conducted many rehearsals over the years.
Do you supply a sound system?
No, but I bring a very big voice.

Tim really gave me an unforgettable ceremony!

I received a ton of compliments about the personal story part in the ceremony. All my guests like it. They said they can feel the love in the story. He is so professional to make the ceremony smooth and impressive. I will definitely recommend Tim to anyone whoever are going to get married.

We are so happy that we found Reverend Tim and highly recommend him for your wedding! He is a “natural,” with the perfect voice and sense of humor for a wedding officiant. We received the most compliments about “the officiant,” at our wedding, and our guests raved about the ceremony all night! While we of course wanted everyone to enjoy themselves at the reception, for us, the most important part of the night was our ceremony when we exchanged vows. Because Tim really knows what makes a successful ceremony for the bride, groom and guests, our ceremony was the most memorable, enjoyable part of the night for my husband and me (and I think for our guests too!). We and our guests, laughed and cried throughout those brief, yet unforgettable 15 minutes.

Pre-ceremony: Tim responded to my inquiry quickly (within a couple hours), and always responded to our emails in a very timely manner. We appreciated that he set up a time to meet with us in person before we committed to his services, his rate is reasonable, he asks questions to get to know what it is that you [the couple] envision for your ceremony, and provides suggestions based on your responses and wishes. We didn’t have a detailed “vision” for our ceremony, but Tim knew what questions to ask to help us see what we wanted. He provided great suggestions to make guests focus their attention on us, and we love that he suggested that we each write a story about each other (without sharing ahead of time). Hearing Tim read the stories we wrote was the highlight of the night for both of us and many of our guests. We knew there would be many young children at the ceremony, including our own 2 and 3-year-olds, and this was no problem for Tim. In fact, he said not to make the kids do anything or force them to sit in a certain spot – Kids will be kids and do what they want. I kept telling myself this, and those of my wedding party, so everything with the children with smoothly.

Tim was the perfect choice for our 9/26 wedding at the palm event center in pleasanton. He was very responsive to all emails, gave great feedback during our visit, and has the most soothing voice you could imagine. He made our ceremony magical, memorable, and there wasn't a dry eye in the room. Thank you Tim!

We were at a friend's wedding where Reverend Tim was the officiant and afterwards we knew we had to work with him.

After working with him, we want to say, Reverend Tim is awesome. He really made us feel relaxed and at ease during the ceremony. He has an excellent voice and has a great presence. He really took the time to make sure our ceremony was a special one. He is very patient and you really feel he cares about you and your big day.

I am going to recommend him to all my friends and family.

Tim was great to work with for our wedding. He was professional and responsive to all of our questions ahead of time. He took the time to get to know us and really listened to our ideas of what we wanted our ceremony to be. He offered up a lovely sample ceremony for us to build from. In the end, when we decided that we wanted to essentially write our own ceremony, vows, everything - basically asking Tim to stray far from his usual ceremony, he didn't bat an eye and executed the unfamiliar ceremony beautifully. We were very happy with the way it all came together, and we got lots of positive feedback from our guests. Thank you, Tim!!

My husband I were married earlier this month in Napa and I will say that Pastor Tim kicked off a wonderful day by setting such a joyous, cheerful and fantastic tone with his ceremony. After exchanging a few emails over the months leading up to the wedding, and then meeting for coffee one day the month before, we knew he was the right choice for our special day. With his incredible help, we crafted personal stories and chose meaningful readings that Pastor Tim shared with our guests, resulting in laughter, applause and tears. His ceremony was balanced, meaningful, sweet and to the point, and seemed very much "like us", as many of our guests stated. Pastor Tim also gave us a few hints to make the ceremony more inviting for our guests (you'll have to ask him what I'm talking about!) that left everyone in awe of what a wonderful ceremony it in fact was. Oh, and let's not forget Pastor Tim's booming vocals. He really should do voice-overs.

We could not have been more pleased with our choice and you will feel the same way!

Tim was amazing - he was prompt in answering questions, reassuring and most of all we loved his ceremony ideas. Our ceremony was truly original and so personal. Not to mention, Tim has the best voice for a ceremony! We wouldn't have changed one thing - it was perfect!

Reverend Tim was absolutely great to work with. Being someone who really didn't know how a wedding service should be run, he went through everything in detail with my wife and I before the wedding and we were stress free the day of. As I am not from the Bay Area, he even arranged his schedule so that he could meet with my wife and I when I was in town to discuss the wedding. I would highly recommend Reverend Tim for any type of wedding service as he will create a wonderful ceremony that you will remember forever.

Reverend Tim was an excellent officiant for our wedding. He has a wonderful deep booming voice that lends magic and gravitas to a wedding. His voice sounded great in the cavernous space of our venue (SF City Hall). So many of our guests commented that they loved his voice and that he should do movie voice-overs! He also had unique ideas that made our ceremony personal and moving. He suggested that we write stories about one another for him to read. At first, we weren't sure if we wanted to do this but we are so glad we listened to him! The stories made our wedding so much more emotional and distinct. My in-laws said that if they ever renew their vows, they will be hiring Rev. Tim!
