Jim Albani Wedding Officiant Reviews
My wife and I were married
at Mill City Museum and we were fortunate
enough to happen upon Jim Albani early enough in our planning
process to secure his services for our wedding date.
Our first meeting with Jim was at The Wilde Roast in
NE (his recommendation) and we knew within five minutes
that we wanted him to officiate our wedding ceremony.
He was well-organized, amicably professional, and listened
to our thoughts/concerns while providing great feed back.
Exactly what we needed.
We were looking for someone who seemed capable of delivering
a seamless presentation. After only meeting a few times
before our wedding day and without any prior rehearsal,
Jim exceeded our highest expectations. He eliminated
any and all worry from the entire process - allowing
us to relax and focus on each other. Through thoughtful
prepping and communication, he helped us to create a
beautiful ceremony that accurately represented us as
a couple and we couldn't be more happy with the results.

"We had no idea what
were were doing, but Jim made planning a ceremony idiot
proof. We defiantly needed that. He was very professional
and helpful, always available to meet and made sure everything
was perfect! We would recommend him to our friends and
family for their ceremonies."

"Looking back, one of the best
choices we made was choosing Jim to officiate in our marriage
ceremony. He made us both feel so comfortable and at ease during
the most important part of the day. We are so grateful that we
came into contact with him and could not imagine our special day
Ana & Brent of Montrose, MN
"Jim was very professional and flexible during
all of our interactions. We had a lot of friends and family involved
in the service so Jim's role was more limited than he was probably
used to, but he was supportive of how we wanted the service to
flow. He has a calm, thoughtful, and thorough approach that we
appreciated greatly. He took care of many important details behind
the scenes as well. Thank you for helping to make the day memorable
Chris & Jen of St. Paul, MN
"Thank you so much for joining
us in matrimony on our wedding day. The ceremony was perfect
and we could not imagine it without you being a part of
it. We greatly appreciate everything. Thank you!"

"Jim Albani was amazing as our wedding officiant! He helped
us along every step of the way and made the ceremony totally
reflect who we are as a couple. Since we didn't have a rehearsal
the night before the wedding, he came early to do a couple of
walk-through runs with the whole wedding party to make everyone
feel comfortable. He is professional, kind and creative and we
would recommend him highly. Thanks, Jim!"
Christine & Tim of Saint Paul, MN
"My husband and I were
very happy to have found Jim Albani through the Minnesota
Wedding Officiants web site. He provided us with his Wedding
Ceremony eBook, which was very helpful. It gave us
ideas and helped us to create our own personalized ceremony.
He was very professional and also very friendly. He even
offered to help take a few photos of our entire family
after the ceremony! Our family members all commented
on what a wonderful ceremony we had. Thank you for everything,
Jim. We really appreciate it!"
Sylvia & Chris
"Jim had been referred
to us by a co-worker, and we are SO glad that he was! He
was very friendly, and professional. His Wedding
Ceremony eBook was very helpful, it allowed us to make
our ceremony specialized for our needs. And made planning
the ceremony stress-free! Over-all we had a very great
experience with him. We had many complements that our ceremony
was "beautiful, and perfect! We would definitely recommend

is a class act. He is thoughtful, intentional, timely and

"Jim was amazing! Our wedding was so personal, unique,
and creative. Many people gave me compliments on the ceremony . I
couldn't have been any happier! Thanks Jim!!!!"
Sammie of Zimmerman, MN
"Jim did a very wonderful job with putting together our
special day! HE made every attempt to make it perfect for
us. He meets with you, in person, before the big day,
not just email or phone. He was very interested in getting
to know us so that we felt like it was a friend doing the ceremony
not some person from the court house doing it because they
have to. I highly recommend hiring Jim as your wedding officiant!"
Jennifer and Leon of Mankato, MN
"We had a fabulous experience with Jim as our wedding officiant.
He was easy to work with and tailored our ceremony to meet

on our ceremony as well as being very inclusive and respectful
of Caren's children. I would highly recommend Jim for any type

Cris Anderson Wedding Officiant Reviews
“You have a special talent. We appreciate your ability to create poignant and meaningful moments when we were all gathered together. We didn't expect the level of support and help you gave us, and we are so grateful. Your words during the ceremony, and the way you captured the meaning of the day, were so touching and appropriate. You were so respectful of our spiritual and religious backgrounds and those of our families and you really helped make everyone feel at ease. We fully endorse your working as an officiant with other couples.”
Anne and Aaron of Rochester, NY
Jill Englund Wedding Officiant
We are spiritual but not religious, and although we didn’t want a church wedding, we wanted a ceremony that would reflect our spirituality. Jill Englund took our ideas and wove them together to create a beautiful, unique ceremony that reflected who we are and what we believe. She has a calm but powerful presence that makes people want to listen to her. Our guests all asked where she preaches because they want to be in her church. Did we mention she is also a rock and roll singer? Jill is very cool, and we highly recommend her as a wedding officiant.
Jennifer Anderson of Minneapolis, MN
"We knew we were in good hands with Jill Englund from the very beginning. She had all the information we needed and more, and she was a pleasure to work with. We particularly appreciated Jill’s creativity with a few special and very poignant moments in our ceremony. Her insight and experience really paved the way for us – our ceremony was beautiful and utterly unforgettable."
Betsy & Todd of Minneapolis, MN
"Jill performed our outside ceremony July 17th in rural Starbuck for 300 guests. The moment I met with her, my worries instantly faded and I knew she would make our wedding day wonderful. She made it such a memorable occasion and did a fabulous job before, during, and after the ceremony. There were so many of our guests that commented on how great of a job she did as well. We are both so happy with our choice we made to have Jill perform our ceremony. Thank you to Jill and MN Officiants."

Mark Scannell Wedding Officiant Reviews
We loved Mark from the moment we met him for a number
of reasons. Mark has an abundance of exceptional qualities
and skills. He is funny, light-hearted and a great listener.
Most importantly, he is patient. He took the time to understand
the unique qualities my husband and I were bringing to the
table, offered ideas for the ceremony. Ultimately, he afforded
us the freedom to make our own choices. Simply stated, he
was a guide for our marriage journey and someone we grew
to trust immensely. Other skills that Mark exemplifies are
his ability to communicate, to manage and organize multiple
details. Having never done this before, we found Marks’ organizational
skills and knowledge of wedding details, timelines and critical
actions needed as keys to our success. My husband and I would
highly recommend inviting Mark to work with you in planning
Cara Tollefson Wedding Officiant
We very much enjoyed having Cara perform our wedding ceremony. She was willing to work with us to tailor a ceremony that was personal, meaningful, and unique. Everything went beautifully on the day of the wedding and several of our friends and family members commented on what a lovely ceremony we had. Cara was professional and friendly and put us at ease on this important day in our lives! We would highly recommend Cara to other couples looking for a wonderful Wedding Officiant.
Thank you Cara.
Tim and Erica, Minneapolis, MN
My daughter Jaisa and her fiancé Shane were married May 29, 2010. Cara Tollefson was their Wedding Officiant. After several interviews Cara was selected because of her compassion and unique ceremonial arrangement.
On the first day of the rest of Jaisa and Shane's lives together the performance by Cara was extremely honoring and respectful. I would like to thank Cara for the beauty and meaning she added to their ceremony and recommend her to all those selecting an Officiant on their most important day.
