Amazing, easy, affordable
We found Jim through an internet search and it was God sending us a blessing. Jim made our wedding ceremony so special. He jumped onto every “odd” thing we suggested and gave it a spin that turned our ceremony vibrant. We couldn’t have asked for more. He was easy to work with, and extremely accommodating. I would suggest him to anyone getting married, thanks Jim for all your work and the wonderful laughs.Sent on 05/12/2019
Ottawa Wedding Officiants's reply:What a unique way to begin married life – exchanging vows at a spa. Nordik Spa was the perfect backdrop for your wedding celebration. Having your kids sign a copy of your Registry Form was a highlight of your very personal ceremony.

The Best Officiant in the Biz
Due to the circumstances of COVID-19, my partner and I decided postponed our wedding and reception but still wanted to commemorate our original wedding day by signing our papers. We reached out to Jim some few weeks ago explaining our situation and he was extremely understanding and empathetic. It becomes very clear when meeting with Jim that you are meeting with someone who is team #love.Sent on 07/07/2020
Both Jim and Rinette worked with us every step of the way, providing insightful tips and guidance from their many years of experience in the industry so that our wedding ceremony--regardless of the circumstances-- was one that we would remember forever. Jim's magnetic personality and warm sense of humor makes him the perfect officiant. He was a pleasure to work with and we are so happy we chose him to officiate our wedding.

Jim Emerson was a wonderful Officiant
Jim married my husband and I in our home in Ottawa in January 2020. We opted to elope instead of having a large wedding. Jim took the time to explore ideas with us to make our ceremony special and unique. He was very flexible to a couple of last minute changes as well. Jim really was the perfect officiant, and his warmth and wit made our ceremony truly special for us. We highly recommend him for your special day! - Avery and GregSent on 02/02/2020
Ottawa Wedding Officiants's reply:Thank you for inviting me to officiate your elopement ceremony. You created a very intimate and personal ceremony that was, from all the laughter and tears of joy, fully enjoyed by your families and friends.

to adjust and adapt to last minute changes! I'm not going to lie, the rehearsal was pretty intense (Jim means business), but I would highly recommend that everyone do one because it really ensured that our ceremony went flawlessly! Also, we found the website
super useful for creating our ceremony. It really took a lot of stress out of the planning! Thanks again Jim!
Ottawa Wedding Officiants's reply:Thank you Angelika & Joe for your kind words of support.

Every couple has a story and I would like to help tell yours. The problem is I can’t write it, but I can share it with your guests.
As your officiant I will provide you with resources and guide you as you create your unique, engaging, memorable and hopefully stress-free ceremony. So, whether your guests laugh or cry during your ceremony, they will come away from your wedding with a warm feeling, knowing that your ceremony celebrated your love.
I’m all about family, community and wedding celebrations! On days when I am not working with couples, you may find me running, cycling, swimming or just hanging out with the people I love.
If this is what you have in mind for your wedding ceremony, let's get together to discuss how I can help you create and share your personal love story with the community who loves you.
Officiating weddings is something that I never thought I'd end up doing. Now, over ten years later it just keeps getting better and better..
I’m not just an Officiant, I’m a story teller. The best wedding ceremonies communicate a story, and I would be honored to participate in telling yours.
I would like an opportunity to get to know you, to hear your dreams and hopes for your ceremony so that I can help you share them with your families and friends. After all, every love story is unique, no two couples have walked the same path, so the story we create together will be like no other.
I also look forward to offering suggestions and guidance that will help you share memories. Memories that reflect who you are as a couple, your individual values and moments that celebrate your love.
I look forward to meeting you, sharing a coffee together and helping you create and tell your love story.
