  • Reverend Rost spent a great deal of time talking with me about my deceased brother and crafted a very personalized memorial service. My family and the rest of my guests all came up to me and commented on how much they enjoyed the service. It was thoughtfully tailored to the individual and accomodated the diversity of the congregants, and was beautifully delivered. Many of our guests were convinced that Reverend Rost had known my brother personally. You can be assured that any service which Reverend Rost officiates will be delivered with the same care and attention to detail.

  • When we were looking for an Officiant for our wedding ceremony, my sister remembered and recommended Reverend Rost… who had performed her wedding ceremony 15 years ago! Janice is a lovely person. She sat with us and explained the process in detail, then she asked us our story. We talked about us, the story of how we met, and about our lives. She really took the time to understand us as a couple and our hopes for the occasion. Neither of us knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding ceremony but, Janice worked closely with us to create an authentic, unique, beautiful and personal ceremony that was perfect for us. She was very organized in her approach and provided us with suggestions and examples of what others had done. She helped us write our vows, select readings, and with things / details that we didn't even think to ask for, or realize we should be thinking about. Janice was an incredibly comforting and calming influence throughout the entire process, up to and includin... Read more

  • Janice was doing great officiating our wedding and we enjoyed working with Janice from the beginning session. The whole wedding ceremony was beautiful. We would recommend to anyone we know to select Rev. Janice Rost for the wedding officiant. Thank you. Walter and Dawn.

  • Dear Janice, I wanted to say thank you for the most beautiful ceremony you gave us yesterday. It touched us and many of our guests. Many commented that it was the most personal and heart filled ceremony they had ever experienced. Your words will remain in our heart for the rest of our lives. It was particularly meaningful to me since you have been my life coach and support in last few months…I felt blessed by the air, wind, sun and the mother earth. I cannot thank you enough for the gift you gave us. I am so happy that you are a big part of my/our new journey. With much love. Tai

  • Janice- We wanted to express to you the gratitude and fulfillment we felt having you as the facilitator of our wedding ceremony. First, we gained this additional, tremendous understanding of each other following our couple’s process session with you. The introspective work was wonderfully helpful. Likewise, the ceremony was exactly how we envisioned it; from the perfect setting to the heartfelt words you expressed throughout. We were also grateful to develop a relationship with you through the process and because of it, know that our wedding day would meet all our expectations and more. Our guests continue to express that this was the most thoughtful wedding ceremony they had ever been to! Thank you for your passion, your kindness and your support throughout the entire process.

  • It was extremely stressful working with her. She was not flexible at all with questions or requests. She wanted our wedding to be what she thought it should be and not what we wanted. In the end found excuses to continue charging more money. Talked over me during discussions and continued to tell me how terrible i was to work with. I thought officiants were supposed to be kind and patient but that was not my experience at all. My husband and i had knots in our stomach thinking about how uncomfortable it would be for us to stand up at the alter with her. Despite all the arguing that went on Months up until the wedding with Janice and us she handled the wedding day with no grudge or reminder of our bad relationship.

    Here’s my response to this bride’s story. I pride myself on giving warm, skilled and personal service. I always strive to make the ceremony and the wedding day an amazing experience for all involved, and have been successful for countless couples over many years of service. As any professional knows, there are sometimes difficulties, especially for such an important event. I found this couple increasingly hard to work with. For over a year I experienced numerous and continued issues of unresponsiveness and attitude. I worked well with the mother who became very involved and added music and songs to the ceremony. I worked with a great deal patience and accommodation, well above and beyond my average generous time. A month prior to wedding, as per contract, I charged a minimal fee to barely compensate for prior time and effort; the same issues and use of time continued thereafter for which I was not compensated, nor did I ask. They all acknowledged and apologized for these issues, told me how much they appreciated my time and care to continue working with them, and insisted I stay for the reception. I am surprised to read the review and sorry that although the ceremony and all involved throughout their big day was wonderful, she is still so unhappy with how everything turned out.

  • We were so pleased to have found Reverend Janice Arlene Rost to co-officiate our wedding. She spent a lot of time getting to know us and understanding what we wanted out of our wedding ceremony. She was incredibly flexible in coordinating details with our other officiant (long story-but basically the family friend we had originally set up to marry us couldn't legally do it in the state we were getting married but we still wanted them involved) and the day went super smoothly. The ceremony was beautiful and we received many compliments from our guests on how heartfelt and meaningful it was. She is a special lady who we still keep in contact with 5 years later. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone we know! Jason & Adriana Brooks Of Newtown, CT
