“Rev. Jon is amazing- Relaxed, on time, professional, personal, and a real sweetheart! He made our wedding experience fantastic! — Sarah, married on 09/22/2018″
I’d love to talk with you and your fiancé about your wedding plans so that we can create a ceremony that fits your vision exactly as you imagine it. A ceremony that meets all of your needs, wants, and desires. A ceremony that is fun, elegant, romantic, practical, or as down-to-earth as you wish.
When you select me for your Wedding Officiant you can get an up-front planning session, ongoing consults, questionnaires and planning sheets, and a fully tailored script for your ceremony for a very competitive and affordable price. Plus I arrive early and can arrange for prior rehearsals.
I’ll help you – if you’d like – to customize the ceremony and vows – standard or your own – so that your ceremony on your special day is as perfect as you want it to be. I can “spoon-feed” you your vows and ring exchange words so that there’s nothing for you to memorize or read so you’ll be as comfortable and as “in the moment” as possible once you’ve walked down that aisle.
I’m happy to incorporate special elements – sand, unity candle or others – so that your ceremony exactly fits your needs, wants, and desires. I’ll work with you and your planning, venue, and coordination vendors so that everything runs smoothly and happily. Visit the booking calendar on the left to check for available dates or contact me – even on booked dates – to see if a specific time on that date might still be available.
“Jon was a pleasure to work with! He answered all my many questions, gave guidance for the processional, our vows and our ceremony script. He was even awesome about accommodating some last minute changes which made the days leading up to the wedding so much easier for us. The day of, he arrived early and the ceremony went off without a hitch! We are so happy that we picked him to officiate our big day! — Chantal, married on 08/25/2018″
Traditional or contemporary religious and non-religious ceremonies, fun or romantic or both, are no problem and I’m happy to add custom elements as you desire.

We had the privilege of having Reverend Jon Turino as the officiant for our wedding. Jon was very thorough in trying to find exactly what we wanted in our presentation as Mr. and Mrs. We wanted an elegant professional ceremony and that was exactly what he provided. He was very well dressed also and fit perfectly in our photos which was a big plus for us. Couldn’t have asked for a better Officiant. Thank you, Jon! – Mr. & Mrs. Patrick Eldred503-877-4609 | email@example.com
