Your wedding ceremony should be among the most special days of your life. When you think back on it years later, you should remember a beautiful ceremony shared with your loved ones and new spouse.
At Perfect For You Ceremonies, we strive to help you make sure that’s the case by providing the best officiant for your wedding. We work with couples to create either a traditional or customized wedding ceremony – whatever you have in mind.
My name is John Kennedy, I’ve been an ordained minister with the American Marriage Ministries since 2017. Although I originally got ordained on a whim, I quickly realized how much I enjoyed officiating weddings. Currently, I collaborate with couples as a wedding officiant in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. I’m comfortable speaking in public and have a natural ability to engage with guests, making me an ideal choice to perform weddings.
If you’re wondering how to select an officiant for your wedding, choose one that has both experience and the flexibility to work within the parameters of the ceremony you want. Our goal is to help craft a wedding ceremony that works best for you. It doesn’t matter if it’s an elopement, a traditional ceremony, a customized ceremony, beach wedding, LGBTQ wedding, or other unique ceremonies.
Have a family member or friend officiating the wedding? We offer new officiant coaching as well. We can mix in other elements to your wedding such as breaking of glass for Jewish couples, a unity candle ceremony, and handfasting. Plus, all of our services are available at a reasonable price. Above all else, we’re committed to working closely with you to develop the unique ceremony you desire.
Any accommodation is reasonable when you’re working with Perfect For You Ceremonies. We’re here to provide you with the ceremony of your dreams!
Planning a wedding is super stressful- especially deciding who is going to perform the ceremony if you don’t intend on going through the church! We decided on a super small backyard ceremony and wanted to make sure it was as personal as possible. John made sure to learn more about our story as a couple and what we were looking for in a ceremony, which made it even more special. He really went out of his way to make sure that everything would go off without a hitch and that we had all the paperwork and everything we would need organized and ready to go. If we had to do it all over again, we’d definitely reach out to John- he really made our day perfect and we can’t thank him enough! -Josh and Haley, 5 star review, The Knot and WW 10/21/22

He provided various examples for us to choose from, and we were able to customize it to make it special to us. He spoke such kind words and truly brought our vision to life. John was a true professional. He made the most memorable day of our life one we will never forget! -Megan and Craig, 5 star review The Knot and WW, 10/23/22
My wife and I are in the healthcare field with very busy schedules and John went above and beyond to work with our schedules. He was punctual, and even dropped off the completed wedding license for us. Extremely happy with him! - Ryan and Jennifer, 5 star review The Knot and WW, 1/17/23
John was perfect for our quick ceremony! He filled in when our original JP was no longer available. Even with barely knowing us he made the ceremony special. You can tell he thoroughly enjoys being a part of a couple's big day. John made it very stress free and easy for us. We can't thank him enough! - Dawn and Tom, 5 star review, The Knot and WW, 1/1/23
John was absolutley amazing! We literally decided we were going to get married at Hartford City Hall on May 9th two days prior and he was able to offer us flexibility to officiate our ceremony. He was so accommodating and even had vows for us to choose from and ring exchange vows. He even took pics of us getting our marriage license and after he performed our ceremony. He was just so gracious We're having a vow renewal and reception next September and we are using him again. - Zipporah and Peter, 5 star review on The Knot and WW 5/12/2023.
