If you are looking for your officiant to make your ceremony touching, special, and memorable, look no further than JP Reynolds. JP rescued us at the last minute (i.e., two weeks before the wedding), as we had completely procrastinated finding an officiant. He was completely responsive to my emails, and our Skype meeting (I live abroad so couldn't meet in person) totally reassured me that JP would make our ceremony feel like "us."
Our ceremony was just perfect. JP was so warm and welcoming. Not only is he a master at crafting the perfect blend of things to say, but his delivery was impeccable--sincere, engaging, clear, and smooth. My husband was subtly nodding after each thing JP said, which really showed just how much JP's words and way of speaking resonated with him. After the beautiful ceremony, which was everything I wanted and more!, my husband could not stop raving about JP. When I mentioned that JP also teaches speaking for corporate contexts, my husband announced that he wanted to take lessons from him!
Thank you so much, JP! You...
My husband and I are so incredibly grateful to JP Reynolds for making our wedding ceremony unique and memorable. JP's approach was unlike other marriage ceremonies I've witnessed and we received so many complements about how great he was and inquiries about how we found him. We definitely felt like what he said was unique to us and profound. One thing that my husband and I wanted to incorporate into our ceremony was a handfasting and JP transitioned into this perfectly and included all the information about what handfasting is and the origin of handfasting that we wanted to share with our guests. I am so glad that we found JP and will always have fond memories of him and feelings of gratitude for making our wedding ceremony so special. If you are looking for an officiant who will make your ceremony personal and unique, JPR Weddings is for you!
JP comes with our highest recommendation! My husband and I first contacted him about 1 year before our wedding. Since we were planning from a distance, we first met with JP through a phone call. We then met with him twice in person, once 6 months before the wedding and the other 1 month before the wedding. Throughout these series of meetings, JP took the opportunity to get to know us and our relationship. He asked for our preferences to incorporate into the ceremony, but he very astutely also picked up on the nuances that we never verbalized. We ended up with a ceremony that was customized to who we are as a couple. JP was dignified, sentimental, AND witty, creating a beautiful mood for the wedding. Looking back on our wedding day, it will be the emotions of the ceremony that we most remember, and the officiant is responsible for setting the tone. Please don't overlook this key part of the wedding. JP is the go-to guy if you want a ceremony to remember!
What a wonderful man!!! My husband and I love, love, love him! We met JP about a year before we got married to go over ceremony and things we wanted to incorporate in our wedding. Then about a month prior we met with him and again and he totally remembered us! He is so warm and caring. He speaks beautifully and is so witty!! All of our guests at my wedding were asking if JP is a close friend of ours because we seemed so comfortable together! He will make your ceremony so memorable :)
JP officiated our small wedding in September of this year and we couldn’t be happier! After meeting a couple of other people, we knew immediately he was our guy when we met him for the first time because he is so enjoyable and comfortable to talk to. We really connected with him.
JP really cares about what you want and offers excellent suggestions and works with you. He is a great listener, upbeat and funny. He really showed interest in getting to know us, as he really wants to help you have the best and the most personalized wedding ceremony.
He did an amazing officiating our wedding. It was so intimate, and simple but meaningful and beautiful, just the way we wanted it. We hadn’t met him before so we relied only on his website and online reviews, and we’re so happy we made the right choice. As a bride, I certainly appreciate that he made sure to see me right before I walked down the aisle. He really calmed me down.
Our parents, friends and even our DJ commented or asked about JP, as the ceremony was fun and it touched everyone at our wedding.
Thanks JP, it wouldn’t have been the same...
JP was a pleasure to work with from the moment we first contacted him. He was very understanding and really listened to what we wanted in a wedding ceremony. We wanted it short and meaningful, and that is exactly what he delivered. He also gave us some suggestions that turned out wonderful. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how it was not boring like most wedding ceremonies. I would highly recommend JP to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!!
JP was our wedding officiant for our wedding on April 2nd. I can't say enough great things about him. Our guest thought he was an old family friend because our ceremony was so personable and warm. We received so many compliments about him. He was open and understanding and really tried to work with us. His stories were wonderful and fit us perfectly. He truly understood our vision of the ceremony and executed it perfectly. We would recommend him for any kind of ceremony. We would recommend taking any suggestions he gives, he really and truly understands wedding ceremonies.
I seriously could not have imagined a better officiant than JP Reynolds. He worked with us to craft the most perfect ceremony for US. He listened to us, but also gave us his advice and input where required.
When the day arrived, the ceremony was utterly magical. Some people commented that it was one of the best, if not THE best ceremony they had ever attended, thanks to JP.
I highly recommend JP to anyone looking for a creative, charming and talented officiant to marry them.
JP had performed my best friend's wedding along with my other dear friend's wedding and each time I grew more and more impressed with him. He flew to NY for our wedding and many guests came up to me at the wedding and after to tell me how wonderful JP was and how beautiful our ceremony was. His words are powerful without being preachy, he is a beautiful person who gets to know the essence of the couple without ever overshadowing the beauty of the union.
I cannot imagine our wedding without JP and I am so thankful that Courtney was married by him so I could share his info with my best friend and he could bless our marriage with his words and insight.
We love JP! He has married two of my friends and even though we were getting married at a destination on the other side of the country we had to have him, he is AMAZING. He will make your wedding ceremony memorable, funny, personal and so brilliant. Almost all of my guests told me that our ceremony was one of their all time favorites - this was a testament to JP's amazing officiating.
