“You clearly love what you do!”

Dear Jay,

Travis and I want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. The ceremony far surpassed anything we could have ever imagined!! From the moment we met you, we knew you were the perfect person to join our lives in marriage.
You made everyone extremely comfortable and our families were touched by your words during the ceremony. Throughout the week, our families would remark on how impressed they were not only about the ceremony but what a remarkable person you are.
You clearly love what you do!!! You made our SPECIAL day even more memorable because of that.Thank you so very much for everything you did in creating lasting memories. Looking forward to seeing you again.
You are awesome!!!!!

“…easy down-to-earth manner…”


Patty and I are so very blessed to have had you for the officiant at our daughter’s wedding last week. Renee and her new husband, Shawn, were overjoyed at the ceremony and felt the sacredness of the moment as the waves pounded and the ocean made the music of the ages on that sandy beach. So very spiritual was the service thanks to your gift for bringing that easy down-to-earth manner to a sacred moment through your instant ability to connect to the couple and the friends and family present. It was like you had been our pastor and friend for years.
The photographer at the wedding was a local woman who also felt the way we did about your service and she will be recommending you to anyone in the OBX who desires a very special minister to perform a wedding ceremony. Jay, you are the best!
In gratitude,

Jack & Patty Jones

“There aren’t enough words….”


There aren’t enough words to be able to express our gratitude! You did such a wonderful job at our wedding! After my dad met you at the rehearsal he said, “He fits right in!” You made us feel so comfortable! You knew all the right things to say. We could not have asked for a better person to perform our wedding ceremony!!
Thank you for making our day so perfect!

“Hello Jay”

Lee and I just wanted to say…..WOW! You took our breath away. It was the most amazing experience of our lives together. The ceremony was perfect and with your gracious and kind words it made the moment so special and unforgettable for both of us…and for the rest of the crew too.
Thank you again. We will always remember that day and you!

“…Where did you find that minister?…”

“Dear Jay,

We want you to know that you are responsible for making our day the most special day of our lives. We had people attending our wedding who were devoutly religious, people who didn’t believe in organized religion but were extremely spiritual, and people who didn’t believe in anything other than love, family and friends and a good time. Almost every single person that attended our wedding asked…”Where did you find that minister?… he was fabulous!” Thanks for everything.”

“…simple for us to plan from afar…”

“Hi Rev. Jay!

Wow – it’s been over a month since Matthew and I were married and time has flown by! I cannot thank you enough for making the time for us given our situation. You worked with Matthew and I while he was in Iraq and you made the entire process so simple for us to plan from afar.

The wedding day could not have been more special. Not only did tropical storm Gabrielle part the clouds for us, but you also were able to bless our day with your warmth and kindness. I cannot imagine having anyone else oversee our ceremony.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,”

Matthew and Katie Terr

“…memorable, special evening…”

Dear Jay,

Randall and I can’t thank you enough for providing us with such a memorable, special evening to “promise forever”. Anyone could have performed our ceremony but I am so glad we were led to you! You made everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed. Thank you so much.

Lisa and Randall

“…Pride, Care, and Love…”


you’re one of a rare kind my friend! Colette and I have been blessed beyond words, and we are so thankful you had a hand in it! We will always remember that day, time, event, and the Lord’s ultimate blessing (you know what we are talking about!) as well as yourself! The wedding officiant is as big a part of any wedding as is any other component! You were the perfect man for the job! It’s very obvious the pride, care, and love you take in your work! You’re truly a very special man!!!! We are so happy that not only did we discover you to lead our wedding, but just as importantly for the great friend you’ve become to us!! We love you!!

Mickey and Colette
