Thank you for starting nearly 1,000 Ideal Weddings, Jim!
After helping about 1,000 couples begin their life-long journeys of togetherness, Jim is at a point in his life to focus on his immediate family.  He and his loving wife Sandy have been a role-model for new and old couples alike.  Jim's first ceremony was in the late 1970s, so his dedication spans more than 4 decades of officiating weddings, encouragement and counseling.  He is still in contact with many of those couples and he considers each relationship with these families to be an invaluable treasure.
Let's now join together in love to say "Jim and Sandy, we wish you the best in celebrating YOUR Ideal Wedding!"

One of Jim's first weddings

Around 1978, Jim officiated for the Miller's wedding in San Antonio, Texas. To this day, they still keep in touch with Jim with fond memories.
Community support is important

The Mission Inn recognized Jim as a preferred officiant thanks to his care and professionalism. The keepers of the Inn presented Jim and Sandy a bouquet upon word of his leaving.

Keeping their faith rooted in God and being ever true to one another allows this couple to always have joyous hearts no matter the circumstances. Many blessings to them for all they do!

A symbol of peace

Just as the dove released at a wedding is a symbol of peace, so too is our wish for Jim and Sandy.
