  • Joan was absolutely amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. I found her on Wedding Wire and read through the comments and all I could see was positive feedback. Little did I know that everything I read was true! She took the time to get to know us and to find out what our vision was for our ceremony. Not only was she helpful with our ceremony planning, but when the Coronavirus ruined all our original wedding plans, Joan was there to offer her flexibility and friendship during that frustrating time. She was a complete stranger to us but was so caring and sweet through all of it that it felt like she was a good friend of ours by the time our wedding did take place. She made our special day perfect, more than we could have imagined. We can’t thank her enough for her flexibility and kindness. Joan truly is a wonderful and professional officiant, you will not go wrong picking her to be apart of your special day!

  • Joan was absolutely amazing! She was so easy going and took the extra time to truly get to know us. Taking that time allowed her to write a beautiful ceremony about us. We received so many compliments on what a wonderful ceremony it was. She just did such a good job with helping us put our story all together, directing our rehersal and made us prepared for what we should be doing at the ceremony. We are so thankful for her being apart of our day and you will be too!

  • Working with Joan was a pleasure! She was accommodating and fun to work with to make our ceremony ours. She was helpful when we weren't quite sure what we wanted and patient as we worked through exactly how we wanted our ceremony to go. I am glad we found Joan, she was able to make our ceremony exactly what we dreamed of!

  • Reverend Joan got to know my husband and I so well that people thought that we’d known her for years. Upon meeting her, she took so many notes to make sure that our love story was exactly the way that it felt and happened for us. Our ceremony was short and sweet and absolutely perfect! She’s a dream come true!

  • Joan did such an incredibly beautiful job with our wedding ceremony. She made sure to meet with us before our wedding to get to know us and to make sure she delivered a speech that felt personalized to our relationship. Joan also ensured that we were able to review her speech ahead of time to make sure we felt very happy with it. She delivered the ceremony in a very genuine manner that never felt rushed and she also helped us to feel comfortable being in front of everyone. Her speech was beautifully written and so many people came up to us afterwards and told us that it was one of the best ceremonies they had been to. We highly recommend working with Joan!

    Thank you Katherine. It was the most loving and beautiful wedding. You were glowing and Andrew's eyes never left yours. He was so happy to marry you!!! Thanks for the kind review and the honor of officiating your ceremony. It was an amazing experience. Many blessings to you both!!!

  • Joan saved the day when our original person backed out and it was truly meant to be! We are a family of mixed faiths and we had issues when it came to our pastor working with a rabbi. When this happened my heart was so broken, and I was not lost in our wedding planning process. Hiring Joan, was not just a good choice because she covered all bases, but because she was apart of the healing process when it came to everything that had happened. I do not resent what happened with my pastor because it lead us to Joan. She sat in my kitchen and listened to us talk about our journey and took many MANY notes. All in all it was a truly amazing experience and I am so thankful she was apart of it all.

    Thanks so much Kinzie! I loved being there with your family. You and Adam are the best parents and an awesome couple. It was a beautiful wedding...lots of love and lots of fun!!

  • Choosing Joan as our officiant was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. She made the process easy and enjoyable. It was really special to plan out what we wanted to say to each other and walk her through our story together. She put in a lot of time and really cared about making our ceremony special and she had a lot of great ideas and guidance. We got so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony was. It was important to us to select someone who could customize it to be exactly how we envisioned and not just use someone required by the church or ceremony venue. And it was perfect. Thank you Joan for for giving us such a beautiful day!

    Hi Jackie and Mark - you are so kind. It was really an honor to work together with you to create your special ceremony. It was such a joyous occasion and you two had a very heartfelt love story to share!! Thank you!

  • Reverend Joan married my husband and I in June and we were happy to have her! Despite a last minute venue change the week of our wedding, Joan was cool, calm, and collected and helped run a smooth rehearsal and ceremony! We loved that we met Joan before the big day and were able to plan out everything for the ceremony beforehand, it helped reduce a lot of stress!

    Hi Meagan and Adam - thanks so much for the kind words. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about your wedding. You looked so stunning in that dress!!!! And, you were able to stay calm and cool with all the support of family and friends that helped in the venue change as well. It was a lovely place and an awesome wedding. Thanks again!!!
