Wedding Officiant Testimonials

As a wedding officiant I focus on providing the best quality services on your big day! Read what my customers have to say about me

We truly enjoyed having Jeff as our officiant for our wedding; we loved how he emphasized the romantic aspect of marriage! He gave us guidance in designing our ceremony, but allowed us to make it unique to who we are and exactly how we wanted! We are very thankful to Jeff for helping to make our wedding day successful and a great start to our lives together!

Brad & Molly

It was a pleasure having you marry us. … I feel so good about having you as a part of our wedding day.  It was such a special moment for me to come around the corner and see you waiting for us by the red oak windows.  I felt comfortable and confident you had all under control through your professionalism.  One of my favorite repeated compliments has been that the ceremony had "Nick and me written all over it" that my friends could tell that this had my touch.  People thought it was = how a wedding should be, comfortable, loving, personal and not long winded.  THANK YOU JEFF!!!!!  P.S. I am flattered with your impression of our pre vows.  Makes me feel good to know your opinion was so high of it.

Annie & Nick

My husband and I were married by Jeff Peterson at The Chapel in the Pines in August 2007. The moment we saw the Chapel we knew it was the right place, and the first time we met Jeff we knew he was the right person to unite us in marriage.  Jeff was very easy to work with and accommodated our busy schedules during the planning process. He was open with us and allowed the flexibility we needed to plan a non-traditional wedding ceremony, while at the same time giving us the right amount of guidance and structure to make the ceremony complete and unique. We met with him a couple times before the wedding to walk through the ceremony, and exchanged emails or phone calls on occasion -Jeff was always very responsive, patient and professional. We are honored to have had Jeff as our Officiant, and we recommend him without reservation.

Dawn & Gary

Thank you again for performing a truly beautiful ceremony. We are exceptionally happy with how our day turned out.

Kelly & Vince

Jeff, Your services made our day unforgettable. Thank you for your extra efforts to make our day great. The suggestions you made really helped us and the packet we received to help us decide how to have the ceremony was very useful. People loved our vows and were really touched. Thank you so much.

Darren & Nichole

We really did like the way we were able to plan the vows and most of the ceremony ourselves. … My aunt … later told me that she wished she could have had a ceremony more like ours. It was much more romantic.

Jennie & Bryan

Frank and I could not have been more pleased with the way that the ceremony went and your services. We really feel that we made the perfect choice in picking you to officiate the wedding.

Jeffrey officiated our wedding and did an absolutely excellent job. He was incredibly flexible, open to any request we had, allowed for us to adapt/change the ceremony as we desired.  He was willing to travel, perform an outdoor ceremony, was prompt with communication, and reliable. Jeff also did an exceptional job of providing timely and appropriate instructions during the ceremony.

Jeffrey Petersen did an amazing job! We were a little nervous since we found him through Weddingwire and didn't meet him in person until the rehearsal, but we could not have been happier. Being two people who have been in and too few weddings he was patient, thorough, prepared and had a sense of humor to help ease everyone's nerves. During the preparation process he offered many options and readings for us to use in the ceremony, we added subtracted and changed as much as we liked, but he was still good about giving us advice on our choices. Whenever we corresponded through email he always responded within a few hours, and was on time to the rehearsal and the ceremony. All in all I would highly recommend him! There's not one bad thing we have to say!
Shannon & Alec

I just wanted to say thank you for the great job you did being our Officiant.  You were great!  I wanted to thank you for being so coordinated and helping us to prepare for everything just moments before the ceremony.  You helped to calm me down tremendously as we had ideas of what we wanted to do...but with your guidance it pulled together very nicely.  Everyone commented on how well the ceremony went.  Thanks again!
