Very Professional Yet Personable

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor James was very professional and personable. We were comfortable with him from the very beginning.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

We had a sand ceremony to include my daughter in on the wedding ceremony and Pastor James narrated through the entire ceremony so that there was no dead awkward silence. I don't think he does sand ceremony often, but he was able to flawlessly guide us through it.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Pastor James described my husband and me during the ceremony like we've known him on personal level prior to the wedding. He remembered enough of our profiles and how my husband and me met, so it didn't seem like he was reading a script.

One Amazing Night

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

My husband and I met with a few Ministers before deciding on Pastor James Scarborough, and we both knew he was our Minister as soon as we met him. My husband instantly felt at ease as soon as we entered his office; he was very nice, pleasant, and funny. He did not make either of us feel "judged" for not wanting a religious ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

There was a great story relating marriage to rings, I really enjoyed it!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We choose to go with a Civil Ceremony in lieu of the Christian or Non-Demomination ceremonies, and it was exactly what we wanted. In lieu of bible passages he inserted poems about love and inspiring words of marriage. It was exactly what we were looking for without being incredibly long or short. He also let us write our own vows!

Thanks so much Pastor James! - From the Townsends

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We were so thankful once we met with Pastor James. My husband and I were comfortable with him from the start. He is real down to earth and easy to talk with.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

At our first meeting with Pastor James we were asked to fill out a questionaire about ourselves and the way we felt about each other. We figured he would use to understand "US" better but what he did was share some our answers with everyone during the ceremony. He worked them in perfectly. They came accross as heartfelt and true because they were. Normally you may not be so open in answering those questions if you know they will be read outloud so not knowing made us answer like we did.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

The whole ceremony was personalized. He told how we met, how and when we fell in love, what we admire about each other and he made us laugh (We told him in the couple questionaire that we didn't mind humor during the wedding ceremony). Pastor shared all these details in short amount of time too (we didn't want a really long ceremony)

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We had a number of quests who came up to us throughout the night and said they liked him. One friend of ours said that Pastor James was relevant, not traditional (by our request), but romantic and wonderful. I had to agree. For my husband and I - It was perfect!!!

Pastor Bill Norman

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor Bill was amazing! He was very easy to talk to and very laid back. He was knowledgable of the process wich made everything easy and loves performing weddings. It is his true passion and it shows.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Pastor Bill was such a big help before and after the wedding and at the rehearsal when things were caotic. He helped guide everyone and seemed to have this calmness about him that rubbed off.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He included information about how Tom proposed over a bridge overlooking a stream with the Mountains in the distance in the ceremony. It was so beautiful and made it so personal.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone loved Pastor Bill! He was very fluent with his words and a great speaker. Everyone commented about what a great job he did.

Pastor James Scarborough

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor James was wonderful! He was easy to talk to and very genuine. You could tell that he wanted to hear our love story and share in our happiness.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He gave a beautiful explanation of the symbol of the wedding ring that was both touching and sincere. I can't look at my ring without hearing his words and remembering exactly how I felt at that moment.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He spoke of how my husband and I first met, and the time that we spent dating, bringing everything full circle to the present and our future together. It was perfect! It was as if he had known us all along.

That our ceremony was beautiful and filled with so much joy. It really spoke of the true meaning of marriage and the vows that we exchanged.

The BEST EVER!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

James was very personable and he has an ability to make you feel at ease and open. He was able to provide us with answers to our questions and answered questions we didn't even know we had.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

James was able to make our ceremony more beautiful than expected by his ability to connect with my husband and myself along with our guests with his sincerity and obvious love to perform ceremonies. The scripture he read and the our story that he was able to incorporate really left an impression on us and our guests.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He was able to incorporate our story into the ceremony seamlessly. He chose scriptures that really made you connect to the Word and told a brief story that was more than entertaining - it was advice for life.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

"I loved the way he made it personable to you guys", "He was the BEST I've ever heard and I've been to a lot of weddings" Our ceremony was very small, but everyone LOVED the way he spoke and all of the extras he put into the ceremony. He was so sincere in all that he said and you can tell he loves to preform ceremonies and see two people in love come together and commit to each other in marriage. He was absolutely wonderful!!!

Larry and Maria Clark loved the ceremony

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

He did a great job in making us feel very comfortable. From the beginning he was very professional but not stuffy. We actually joked a little. He made a suggestion for a beautiful gazebo.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He remembered things from our first meeting about us and not just from the questionairre. Our friends asked how long we had known him.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We just had a very casual outdoor ceremony, so everyone could be comfortable and it turned out beautifully. The weather was great and so was the ceremony.

A Perfect Ceremony

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor James was an excellent pastor. He was extremely flexible regarding hours and times to meet, and offered us unlimited marital counseling at no cost. He is very genuine, and I felt extremely comfortable during all of our interactions. I was overall very impressed with him and his services. We met with several pastors prior to meeting with him, and it was truly not even comparable. He far exceeded our expectations.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Pastor James included our stories in our ceremony and was able to make the audience laugh and smile on multiple occasions. He added a personal touch to our ceremony which is invaluable.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

All of the guests commented on our pastor and ceremony. They were truly inspired and touched by his stories and laughed at other parts. It was a truly exceptional ceremony.

James Scarborough gave us a perfect ceremony!!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor James made the wedding and the planning so easy and comfortable. He was always availiable to answer any questions that I needed answered. Once my husband and I met him we knew he was the right one to marry us.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The option for counseling before and after the wedding, if we ever needed it.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

He got to know us through a questionare. He brought in the answers we gave him and made it part of the ceremony. We will never forget why we fell for each other because it was in our ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My mother in law is completely deaf and only communicates through reading lips. She said that he talked very nicely and it was easy for her to read his lips. She said that it was a very beautiful and thoughtful ceremony. Other guests loved the part of the ceremony where he talked about how the rings were scrathless now but they wouldn't be forever. The scratches show what you go through. It was just a perfect ceremony.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Pastor James was absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have asked for better. Even our bridal party thought he was great. We are doing a vow renewal in a year and he is the only one we want performing the ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

He said prayers, read poems, and did so much more than we expected. Without him I don't think our wedding could have been near as special.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Pastor James personalized our ceremony to include our theme. He dressed as we requested no matter how odd it might have seemed.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Where did you find Pastor James? He was great!! I'd like to have him do my ceremony when the time comes.
