Working with Jon made the whole process of getting married so much easier! From reminding us of things we needed to do, to walking us through the day of! He was always super quick to respond and so very helpful. The ceremony that he performed was perfect and fit us in every way. We truly could not have asked for a better officiant! More...

Jon married me and my husband Labor Day weekend at an outdoor venue and he did an absolutely wonderful job with the ceremony. We were both pretty nervous to stand up in front of our friends and family but his demeanor was calm and professional. He was easy to work with, providing pre-planned scripts to edit to our liking and made himself available as needed. Thank you for marrying us! More...

Jon is a very humble and down to earth officiant. He can cater the script to how ever you would like it to be. Religious, non-religious, a mixture of both. He was on time, friendly, and perfect for our little wedding. Thanks again for everything Jon. More...

Jon did a terrific job for our July 20, 2019 wedding! His email communication was always very prompt and thorough and he answered all of our questions. He offered us a religious or non-religious ceremony, and we chose the latter. The script he provided was really nice, and we made only minor adjustments, which he is very open to. Everyone told me that they thought our officiant was excellent, and I am so please to have worked with him! Thanks! More...

Jon was courteous, professional and fun! He happened to already be at our venue (more than one venue at our location) the day of, so it was an easy fit. He met with us and went over scripted, non-religious vows and helped us decide on our procession. He was always friendly in all communications we had, and put me at ease during the ceremony. I would absolutely recommend him as your officiant, whether religious or non-religious, he is the man for the job. More...

My husband and I are SO happy and lucky we found Jon! We found him just a couple weeks before the wedding (a bit of procrastination...!) and luckily he was still available for our wedding date! We were impressed by his professionalism, charisma and cheerful personality. Jon made the ceremony go very smoothly, which we were so grateful for given the nervousness we were both feeling on the day! I highly recommend you consider Jon to be your wedding officiant! More...

Jon is such a wonder to work with! He was great to meet with before, he was timely with his responses, he was open to changes we had for our script. He even checked in with us about a week before to make sure we had everything. The day of he was supportive and gave great advice. :) It was raining during our wedding and he didn't complain and just went with the flow. He made our day feel so true and special. Thank you Jon!

We cannot say enough great things about Jon!! He was EXACTLY what we were looking for in an officiant for a traditional, simple, & intimate elopement ceremony. Jon was incredibly responsive when we first reached out to him and again whenever we needed him (which was only a few times). He provided us with a "blueprint" so to speak, of the ceremony (also perfect for us and also exactly what we were looking for) which we were easily able to adjust a bit to custom fit us more. Arriving 20 mins early, he effortlessly blended right in with our crazy families as if he'd been a lifelong family friend. Jon was fun, easy going, and laid back, yet still traditional and extremely professional. After he'd left, everyone kept remarking how impressed with him they all were. Jon is an absolute natural and we wouldn't recommend going with anyone BUT HIM for an officiant! We can’t thank you enough Jon! We couldn't have gotten or even asked for a better officiant nor could we be more pleased!!! You were an absolute delight as well as absolutely PERFECT from the get go!! More...

Choosing Jon as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made for our special day. He was very quick to respond to any concerns or questions I had planning our ceremony, very easy to work with, very professional, and just more than I can ask for.Having that precious memory of our special day definitely wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for Jon being there.If you are in search of a perfect officiant, look no further! Jon is it! More...

I would highly recommend Jon! He was just what we were looking for at a very reasonable price. I wanted a very simple wedding and he helped accomplish that.

Jon was wonderful and helped every step of the way. His response time was excellent which made the planning process easy! When we realized last minute our ceremony didnt have a microphone as planned... Jon made sure to project his voice loud enough so our guests even in the back row could hear and be a part of our ceremony :) More...

We have been a fan of Jon Turino's blog and work ethic for over two years now, but didn't have the pleasure of working with him until yesterday at the Lake House.

He has a warm caring personality from the moment you meet him and he rolls out the red carpet for not only his clients, but other vendors and their family and friends. We highly recommend him.

John exceeded my expectations in every way. Having never arranged a wedding, we had no idea what to expect or even what to ask; John anticipated that and came to our meeting with samples, options and answers. He was kind, knowledgeable, and a consummate professional.

I highly recommend this guy to officiate your wedding.

Reverend Jon was wonderful to work with. We had a unique ceremony that blended both my Ukrainian culture and my husband’s American culture and Reverend Jon wrote a script that combined the two cultures perfectly. He was genuine and sincere and addressed any questions immediately. He also provided some great insight on the best way to say our vows and even how to stand in order to get the best pictures. It was a stress-free ceremony knowing that Reverend Jon was our Officiant and he truly helped make it perfect. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. More...

It was such an honor to be officiated by Reverend Jon Turino. We planned our wedding in less than two months and hiring Reverend Jon was the easiest part of it all. He was very responsive and was open to any revisions with our vows. Our communication with him was very stress-free. Also, due to weather restraints, we had to change our ceremony venue to our reception venue, and he was more than happy to accomodate us despite the changes. Reverend Jon arrived early, we had just met him in person half an hour before the ceremony started, nerves were kicking in, however, Reverend Jon was present and encouraged us to stay calm and relaxed, as he will guide us in everything we need to say. He did just that. He made us so comfortable and at ease with him. We are so grateful and we highly recommend Reverend Jon's services and passion to marry couples. Thank you for the stories and advices you shared in the short amount of time we have met you. Best wishes Jon, we are so happy to be married by you.

We had chosen Jon as an officiant for our wedding, and it was one of the best decision we've ever made. He was kind and patient with all of our last minute wedding planning. From the moment we contacted him, he promptly replied to every email, messages, and phone calls. Wedding planning was stressful enough, but Jon surely made it a whole lot easier. He went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding ran smoothly. He is reliable, dependable, and accommodating.Our ceremony couldn't have been any better and it was everything I'd ever hoped and wish for.....many thanks to Jon. If you're looking for an officiant, look no further!!! More...

Thank you Jon for everything!! Not only were you super patient and easy going with us when I forgot the marriage certificate at home and had to have someone go get it but you handled the delay with total humor and complete understanding.

The ceremony was all that we had hoped for and more, laughs and oops included.

Thank you for making our day as memorable as possible. You are a true gem!!

Jon was the perfect fit for our ceremony. He is kind, witty, and very professional. He also responded to every email within 24 hours.

Jon was amazing to work with. My husband and I got married at a brand new venue in Portland at a vineyard and we couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us. He was prompt at responding, was very friendly and walked us through the steps we needed to take for our wedding. Jon delivered a beautiful script and we truly appreciate his genuine nature. We got married at the end of July and moved to Texas immediately after, delaying our review for him, but in no way could we ever forget his service. Thank you Jon, we would hire you again if we could! More...

We can't speak highly enough of Jon! From the first time we reached out to him until the last moments before the wedding, he remained incredibly responsive and reassuring that our special day would turn out exactly as we wanted it. With Jon, you will never feel unprepared during the ceremony; he will guide you, step-by-step, through the entire process by gently directing you and feeding you your words (you have no idea how helpful this is when you're overcome with emotion). One of the best things about Jon is he is as much an observer of the wedding as he is the minister - he will be just as happy to be there as your guests. Truly, having Jon as your minister will feel like you asked a close friend to officiate your wedding. Jon was by far the best choice for us, and we feel you can do no better! More...

Q&A

I love the happiness that my couples' experience when I pronounce them married and tell them to kiss. Very happy and emotional moments.

A friend asked me to marry her and her fiance. So I got ordained online and married them. I loved doing it and they loved the way I did it. That was 3-1/2 years and 250+ weddings ago!

I help them from start to finish to create and execute a ceremony that meets all of their needs, wants, and desires.
