WONDERFUL

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Jason was wonderful! He knew just had to incorporate our different requests into the perfect ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

My 11 year old son played the wedding march on his guitar and he took a brief moment before starting the vows to recognize him. It was so sweet.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We have very different personalities and he incorporated my need for a short and sweet ceremony with my husbands need for religious traditions. It was sweet.

Excellent officiant!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Jason made us feel comfortable right from the start. When we first met him, he asked all the right questions in order to get to know us better, and he made it very clear that he was looking to give us the best possible wedding ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Jason was awesome at the rehearsal: he gave instructions to the bridal party on timing for the processional/recessional, and he made sure to give instructions on little details, like the best way for everyone to turn or hold their hands to help make the pictures look cohesive. Our families had lots of "opinions" and "ideas" too, and Jason was very gracious and kind when fielding everyone's extra input. =)

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We were looking for a fairly traditional ceremony, so Jason sent us a basic template and we were able to customize it as much as we wanted. It was great to be able to include the things that were important to us and not have to worry too much about the rest.

Jason McClaren

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutley he was always professional and yet felt as if you have always been friends. He always made it a point to make it the day you want. He was always helpful in guiding us along helping make decesions but still making sure they were our choice.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He added so many personal touches that made it special to us as a couple. We wanted a very short and simple ceremony and he suggested doing a sand ceremony which i thought was an amazing idea and so did everyone else.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

The sand ceremony helped personalize it, we played non-traditional wedding songs while pouring the sand, walking down the aisle and music for wedding party.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone thought Jason did a great job with everything and everyone commented on the sand ceremony.

I'm glad he was our officiant.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Jason made my husband and I both really comfortable. My husband can be shy but he felt comfortable standing in front of the guests at the ceremony with Jason there. Jason is so friendly, he made us both feel at ease

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The best man wasn't feeling well, and fainted at the beginning of the ceremony. As bad as that incident was, Jason handled is so well. He was really friendly and really helpful towards us all, and was more than willing to completely re-start the ceremony or start from where we left off. His reaction to it was great, he didn't let it phase the ceremony and I think all of our guests were at ease even after the incident with the best man.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We did a rose ceremony and sand ceremony, but we didn't practice the rose ceremony as we wanted it to be a surprise for the parents. He made sure to have the wording for the ceremony to include both mom and dad as it's general for just the mothers and it became a beautiful part of the ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our friends loved the personalized part of the ceremony. They felt like what we said was really us and not just like they were at yet another, standard ceremony.

Jason McClaren, great price and gets the job done!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We picked Jason because he was about our age, we could relate to him, he didn't have a list of demands for us and was open to customize.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Jason added a passage about magic in our ceremony (we love magic), described what unity sand is and helped us pour it.

Thank you just isn't enough!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We chose McClaren Ministries because both my and my husbands family are agnostic. We wanted to celebrate and honor our commitment to each other without feeling like we were putting on a show for anyone. Jason was COMPLETELY accepting of our wishes and beliefs and that really made us comfortable. He made our wedding EXACTLY what we wanted it to be.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

At the last minute we had a disaster when our venue fell though on us. Jason let us know that we could use the chapel in his studio free of charge!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Since we are Irish we did the hand fasting ceremony.

That our wedding suited us perfectly.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He remembered one of our funny stories and worked it into the ceremony. It was perfect!

Our recommendation, most definitely

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Jason made us feel very comfortable. He walked us through each step we needed to take including a reminder to pick up the marriage license.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

With only one meeting with us, Jason was able to write vows that fit us almost perfectly. He was able to customize the vows even more to suit us.

It's all about the words that are exchanged.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Jason was awesome! Neither me nor my husband had been married before and Jason really helped us to understand the whole process!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He gave us a book that we took home so that we could read over all of the different ways we could do our ceremony. I really like that touch!

Every word was truly meaningful.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We weren't sure if we were even going to be able to have a wedding ceremony (we thought we might just have to go to the courthouse), but McClaren Ministries guys made it affordable enough that we were able to have exactly what we wanted.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

When we met Pastor Jason back in 2007, he was a new minister but he delivered the ceremony like a pro.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

The humor and uniqueness they brought to our ceremony will make our wedding day something we will never forget!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We received so many compliments. Words like 'touching', 'sincere', 'unique and original', 'the best wedding I have ever been to' and our favorite, 'I am really envious of your wedding'.

Pastor Jason consulted with us well in advance, leaving us with one less thing to worry about in the last month before our wedding

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

When looking for a minister that would fit our theme Pastor Jason was eager to jump in and help us create the perfect ceremony.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We had a very non-traditional rock theme and Pastor Jason followed it to the letter without question. You will not go into your ceremony expecting one thing and getting another!
