  • Joan helped my husband and I first develop our glass blending ceremony, readings, and the format of our vows. When the virus caused us to redo our whole plan, Joan was super flexible and created a new reading for our micro-wedding! She was so great and helpful that we are going to work with her again next year for our wedding celebration/big wedding with all of our friends and family. I highly recommend her as she is a great communicator and very personable.

    Macy & Ben - it was a glorious day at the DC waterfront and brought much joy to those who watched you two take your vows. I'm so glad to get to know you and be part of your special day in May and again next year!

  • Joan was very warm and caring. She helped us plan everything from the theme of the ceremony to our vows. The days prior to the wedding she checked in with us to make sure that we were okay and were ready for our big day. You will not go wrong by having Joan officiate your wedding. She is simply “the best”. Mr.&Mrs. Ronald A. Williams

  • Joan was wonderful to work with! Because of these wild and crazy times we chose to downsize our wedding plans and Joan was able to make our smaller ceremony feel very special. The ceremony was very well written and was easily customized to fit us. Joan is very professional and kind, followed all recommended guidelines, and was flexible with us when plans changed a week before the wedding. We are very appreciative of Joan and would highly recommend her!

    Avery & Danny - Good things do come in small packages - and this is certainly true with weddings! I'm so glad you were still able to have your special and unique ceremony in spite of the challenges. Thank you for letting me be part of your day.

  • Joandid a great job and was very accommodating. She followed all CDC guidelines as for COVID which was great. Also, she makes it so you don't have to lift a finger for the certificate. She is also dog friendly which was a huge plus for us. I have already recommended her to a few friends and will continue to referring her. Thanks Joan! 10/10

  • My husband and I are so happy we found Joan! She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and so much fun. She was more than happy to meet with us a few times before our wedding and get to know us more personally. She helped us have the most perfect ceremony, and we are so grateful. I highly recommend Entwined Vows!

  • We were so lucky to find Joan for our wedding! Due to the pandemic, we had to move the date up much sooner than planned. We contacted her on a Tuesday and were married that very Friday. She was incredibly understanding and accommodating, especially on such short notice. We ended up having a very intimate outdoor wedding with close family and friends attending on Zoom. Joan maintained proper social distance and came prepared with her own mask. Although the ceremony was short and sweet, she made every effort to make the moment very special. We highly recommend Entwined Vows Ceremonies!

  • Joan did a wonderful job officiating our ceremony! We got married during COVID and Joan was still willing to attend our outdoor ceremony, which was awesome! She took the time to do several phone calls with us and was available via email. Joan was very flexible with how we wanted to structure our ceremony and allowed us to make changes as we went along. She gave us advice when asked but did not pressure us in any way. The readings she shared with us were beautiful and we cherish the great memories that Joan facilitated! Very professional and reliable!

  • We highly recommend Joan! From day one, she was responsive and helped craft the perfect ceremony for my husband and I. She was always available by either phone or email any time of the day, and we never felt like we couldn't get in touch with her. My husband and I had a non-denominational ceremony, and Joan helped us create a ceremony that fit our personalities and styles perfectly. She truly took the time to get to know us and our history. Do not hesitate to use her for your ceremony!

  • Joan was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. We were happy to have her. She is a very warm and kind person and made my partner and I feel comfortable throughout the process. She was very organized and responsive leading up to the wedding. She helped pick great readings for our ceremony. Also, she reviewed and even printed out the vows we wrote on some custom card stock for the wedding which is a very nice touch! I would 100% recommend her for your wedding!

  • Joan did a fantastic job, she gave us examples of things we could do in our non traditional ceremony. She was able to give us great suggestions for readings. During the ceremony she spoke loud and clearly and it was just overall fantastic. We did a handfasting during our ceremony and she helped us through that process.

    Thank you so much Cat & Nick you made it so easy for me with your organization. I loved your vows and the venue - it was such a beautiful day!

  • Joan officiated our wedding on 4/6/19 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She was great to work with - she was responsive, flexible, and wrote a ceremony that really fit what we wanted. She gave us wonderful suggestions for readings and vows, and we got a number of compliments on our ceremony. I'd highly recommend Joan!
