Do not hire Rev. Tim Mills if you want a flawless ceremony. He mispronounced both my name and my husband's name, even though my husband coached him on the pronunciation just before the ceremony. He did not pay attention to the details we wanted in our ceremony either. He seemed very uninterested in the whole process.

Reverend Tim was amazing! His voice is perfect for officiating a wedding and he brings a perfect amount of celebration of the seriousness of the event at hand but brings a fun lightheartedness when it is appropriate. Instead of having couples write their own vows, he has you write a story about your spouse-to-be and recommends that it be from a time early in your relationship. He reads these out loud during the ceremony and this was one of our and our guests favorite part of the whole wedding. We got so many compliments about Reverend Tim and the ceremony and how much people enjoyed the stories.

Reverend Tim was amazing - he listened to our preferences and made the ceremony short and sweet, just how we wanted. He has a great speaking voice and a lovely presence. He also brought in a great personal touch and made it unique to us by weaving the stories we shared with him into the ceremony. Would recommend him for any type of ceremony!

Best.officiant.ever! To be honest, we kept putting off dealing with our ceremony details until we couldn't any longer. We kept trying to think of a family member or friend we could ask to get ordained and marry us. After all of the details that go into planning a wedding, the thought of then helping write our ceremony with a family member or friend (we'd have NO clue where to begin) wasn't interesting anymore.

I work in the wedding industry and have seen hundreds of ceremonys but I don't really listen as I'm usually running around getting ready for the next detail. Luckily, one of my clients used Tim last year and I remembered him for his great voice and the amount of laughter that came from guests during the ceremony.

My husband and I had a quick call with Tim and his personality, sense of humor and awesome voice made us immediately decide he'd be perfect! Tim gave us some great advice about writing our own vows (not too) and instead we each wrote stories that Tim shared during the ceremony...he was right, everyone enjoyed listening to these much more and given our nerves, it was so nice to take a deep breath and listen to what my husband wrote. Tim also gave us some great advice about when to use prayers (since neither of us are religious but some of our family is) and provided us sample prayers to select from.

He made planning the ceremony beyond easy and the day of was honestly perfect! His delivery was amazing and we had so many people comment on what an amazing job he did. We'd absolutely recommended Tim and are so thankful we had a videographer because we both can't wait to listen to the ceremony again!

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 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!

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 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!
