  • Joan is the absolute best - super easy to work with, SUPER flexible, and such a calming presence - we felt totally confident placing our ceremony in her very capable hands, and she delivered times 10. Our ceremony was memorable and personalized. I can't recommend her enough or sing her praises more highly. Hire her now!

  • Reverend Joan was WONDERFUL! She was willing to meet us 1/2 way between our place and hers for our first meeting and was completely prepared and very knowledgeable from the start. She provided us with drafts of "traditional" and "contemporary" wedding ceremonies; each of which had multiple examples for each section of the ceremony. From there she let us completely customize our ceremony so that it was exactly what we wanted. We picked our favorite pieces from the examples she provided and added in some of our own ideas. In the end, we had our dream ceremony. We got so many compliments from our guests on the ceremony. They loved how personal and unique it was. We couldn't be happier!

  • Rev Joan was amazingly professional, and helpful in helping create the perfect ceremony for my wife and I. She took the time to get to know us, and our relationship very well before drafting our ceremony. She created an incredibly personal and intimate ceremony which gave us exactly what we wanted for our big day. I couldn't recommend her more highly as an amazing officiant.

  • The ceremony was perfect and Joan was such a pleasure to work with! She really knows what she is doing and is a very experienced professional. She'll walk you through the process of creating a ceremony script, send you outlines/samples of readings, make suggestions, and incorporate your draft edits. She always responded right away and definitely put me at ease knowing she had things under control. I highly recommend her!

  • Joan was a wonderful Officiant for our wedding. She did a great job of creating a very personal ceremony that both our Protestant and catholic families loved. She encouraged the ideas we had, and gave us suggestions when we needed them. We had so many people tell us it was one of the most personal and unique ceremonies they had ever seen. If you are looking for an officiant who is warm, personable and creative then look no further. I would recommend Joan to anyone!

  • We knew right away when meeting Joan for the first time that we wanted her as an Officiant. She took the time to get to know us in a comfortable setting and walked us through the entire process of creating a ceremony to fit our personalities and wishes. We were able to combine contemporary and traditional elements into our ceremony and include our own personal touches. We also really appreciated that Joan took the time to create and give us a beautiful copy of the written ceremony. We would love to recommend her to anyone!

  • My husband and I are so pleased we worked with Joan. We wanted our ceremony to be meaningful, personal, and thoughtful. We definitely got that and more. Joan was professional, made lots of really great suggestions on things we could add to our ceremony, but most of all she was easy to work with and very kind and calm — the exact sort of energy you want when planning a wedding. Working with her felt effortless because she was so professional, responded to all our questions within a reasonable period of time, and helped guide us through the entire process of working with her to create a personalized ceremony that spoke to the relationship my husband and I have built, and what we wanted to communicate to each other and our families on our wedding day. I will suggest Joan to all my closest friends and family for her great service, kindness, and professionalism!

  • You can feel safe and calm with Joan as your officiant. Her custom & personalized ceremonies are very impressive and elegantly written. She listens to you and gets to know you as an individual creating a connection that adds meaning behind just being an officiant. She becomes your new friend in life. Her tender personality and calm, caring voice will make you fall in love with her. She is very detail-oriented, empathetic, organized and understanding. I simply loved our ceremony and received many compliments from my family and friends. Some even stated it was "BEST Ceremony they have ever heard" and many tears of happiness were shed by our guests. I would highly recommend Joan with the utmost respect.

  • I'm going to make this very simple, Rev. Joan Pape was absolutely amazing. She was the officiant for our wedding and did such a great job! I don't need to get into details because that would take forever. I would definitely recommend her!

  • What a delightful job done by Joan and Karen. Our officiant fell through at the last minute (who was just a friend), and we turned to Ceremonies by Design for help--maybe only 3 weeks before our wedding, I believe! They were superbly accommodating, and we are actually glad now that we used their services instead of relying on a friend to take care of it. What lovely people. We had a nice little meeting with both Joan and Karen before the wedding; Karen did the ceremony. They're both very accepting, accommodating, kind, and professional. Karen was just fine with our very minimalist & secular preferences, and she did a lovely job! We felt so well-taken-care of, and so will you.

  • Reverend Joan provided quality, personal, and professional officiant services for our wedding. We contacted Rev Joan mid-way through our planning process and although we felt as though we did not have a lot of time, Joan made us feel relaxed and reassured us that our big day would go just the way we wanted. She personalized our wedding to include special touches for certain family members and made our ceremony feel like we had known her for years. We were skeptical about going outside of our congregations to find an officiant, but we are so happy that we did. Reverend Joan was very open minded and supported our ideas and creativity.

  • Joan from Ceremonies by Design made our ceremony feel authentic to us and rooted in our core values. She allowed us to choose a ceremony design that was a good fit for us and helped provide guidance on all of the details regarding the wedding ceremony, including the process of applying for a marriage license. She was always responsive to my questions and needs and was such a calming presence on the day of the wedding. After the wedding, my family commented on how kind she was to everyone during the rehearsal and at the ceremony. They also commented on how wonderfully the ceremony flowed. I would recommend Ceremonies by Design to anyone that is looking for officiant services in the Dane County area.

  • Joan was amazing. We were beyond happy with the services she provided for us before, on and after our wedding. She was a little more than we budgeted for but I think that knowing that your officiant is experienced, going to do a great job, and not having to stress about the MOST important part about getting married (the actual ceremony) it was worth it. She was also extremely personable and genuinely cared about the small details and helping make the process easier for us. My husband and I were extremely satisfied with the services provided to us by Joan.
