  • From the start I knew my ceremony would be the most important part of the wedding . And Jennifer helped make that vision a reality, even through the challenges of COVID, which forced us to reschedule our wedding, and redesign it. We met with her several times and she helped us drop into the feelings we had for one another, our intentions, our fears, and the impacts of COVID on the wedding process. She's very, very gifted at this kind of thing, which really raises the whole consciousness of the event. She did a phenomenal job at writing a custom ceremony that reflected us and our distinct values, which I'm sure was not easy as we wanted and needed something quite unique in a very unique time. If you want to design your ceremony and have it reflect you as a couple, then I can't recommend Jennifer highly enough.

  • From the moment I saw the name of this vendor I knew I wanted them to be a part of my ceremony. Then we met Jennifer, the person behind this great company name and it just confirmed what I already felt in my heart. She would be the one who would guide us through our journey to being legally bound. Jennifer was determined to get to know us; she learned our story. Making sure to delve deeply into who we were and how we became who we were. She took all of this gathered information and created what is being called by our guests the most genuinely organic wedding experience that they've ever been a part of. Our guests have sent us thank you notes saying things such as "your ceremony made us want to be better", "best wedding I've ever attended" and "we left thinking how we could love one another more". We told Jennifer that we wanted to fill the space with love and make our guests feel love at every turn. She delivered! Our ceremony was filled with the most thoughtful and loved-filled... Read more

  • Jennifer is a beautiful person. Inside and out. She made our wedding planning/wedding day everything we could of dreamt. She’s so calm and relaxing. Being in her presence really brought my husband and I to a place of unimaginable love throughout the chaos that a wedding brings. We not only had the perfect woman to marry us. But we gained a great friend in the process. I would recommend Jennifer time and time again! ♥️

  • Jennifer is handsdown one of the best officiants i've had the pleasure of working with. My client hired her for an April 2019 wedding ceremony and Jennifer knocked out the park. She truly captured the audience's attention - bringing light to the couple's love for each other - through interactive vows. Guests had never seen a more well thought out ceremony. Jennifer is super easy to work with and responsive. She's also warm, friendly and flexible - offering each client a truly custom ceremony. Highly recommend.

  • Jennifer helped us achieve the mindful, present, happy and emotional wedding ceremony we dreaming of. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and to see your vision for your wedding ceremony. She is extremely sensitive and considerate to individual religions, lifestyles, visions or opinions. Beyond that she offers a wonderful experience of bonding as a couple before you commit your life to each other which is so important before your wedding day. This can be as extensive as you prefer as there are several sessions you can choose from if desired. As far as the ceremony, it really focuses on two unique people while still honoring traditions as the couple wishes. She is very flexible with her planning, but still takes the wheel to take the stress off of the couple. Our guests absolutely loved our ceremony and it really set the tone for so much love and gratitude throughout the rest of the wedding day.

  • I am so upset that I did not get the chance to personally thank Jennifer for such an amazing ceremony. She truly executed a beautiful ceremony that encompassed all of Gabrielle and Sarah’s intentions/wishes when it came to their ideal wedding. You, Jennifer, have such a way with words and bringing a room together, I’m still in awe! I really hope I get to see you again to be able to thank you in person! Ps. If you coordinate/host any other events I will literally pay to just sit in the back and creep from afar LOL.

  • “That was the most beautiful wedding ceremony I’ve ever witnessed!” – This is what we heard from multiple guests at our intimate, DC wedding that Jennifer officiated. After working closely with her for nearly a year on crafting a ceremony that was mindful, emotional, and uniquely us, she delivered a beautiful script that felt fully representative of the relationship we have built. She was very communicative and thoughtful and even coordinated with us while we were in a long distance relationship across two continents. The ceremony itself was wonderfully and meticulously delivered, keeping everyone, including us, present and mindful and breathing (a true task when emotions are high). As a same-sex couple, we truly appreciated her sensitivity and understanding, as well as her willingness to break traditions and bring in aspects of other cultures, religions, and ideals into our ceremony. The attention, intention, and care that was put in helped create a moment that we and our gues... Read more

  • Jennifer was absolutely wonderful. We adored everything about the ceremony she put together. It felt totally customized to us. We were completely surprised by everything she said but it was absolutely perfect. It couldn't have been better. I felt so privileged to work with her. She provided us with so many moments for getting grounded and finding our breath. Every person at the wedding said they loved the ceremony, that it was the best they had ever heard. Even people who said that ceremonies are usually their least favorite part loved her work. We cried so many times at the sweet, beautiful things she said about us, just based on a few short conversations. She got to know us so well it was amazing! Now we have a wonderful promises box and a beautiful wine glass to remember our wedding. She incorporates so many special touches and rituals into the wedding that it will feel totally unique. She is also the utmost professional, great at communication, patient, kind, and generous. Thank yo... Read more

  • Jennifer was absolutely amazing during our planning, pre-ceremony, and ceremony. She had a desire to learn more about us as individuals and as a couple, and the exercises that she walked us through really helped us all connect prior to the wedding. We LOVED our grounding ceremony that we did with her a few days before and it helped us be mindful before the weekend and helped alleviate any worries. The ceremony itself was beautifully customized and thoughtful. Jennifer used the exercises that we previously to sculpt a script that was a perfect blending of our two personalities, intentions, and desires for what we want to be true in our marriage. We received so many compliments specifically on the ceremony! I would highly recommend working with Jennifer from How to Human Better!

  • There are no words for how grateful we are to have found and worked with Jennifer! She is truly amazing and very detail oriented - getting to know us both so that not only could the pre-ceremony partnership be very tailored, but also making our ceremony really come alive and be unique and special for me and my (now) husband. Honestly, we loved the pre-ceremony partnership WAY more than we thought we would. It was a great way to begin our journey together and be more intentional in our relationship and marriage. And as for the wedding, it was perfect and custom to us. We've gotten so many compliments from our guests that our ceremony was the *most* personal, special and fun wedding they'd ever been to. In short, I can't recommend Jennifer and How to Human Better enough.

  • "The best wedding ceremony I ever witnessed." Which was one of the few of the many compliments I received about Jennifer's service. She is exactly what we were looking for. My husband and I aren't that religious however my parents were so she gave us a good blend of the two. The Christian base my parents wanted and the unique, spiritual and meaningful one we were looking for. I mean she even personalized it by talking about my husband and I love for asian food and dark humor! She truly is gifted in bringing people together and gave such a meaningful service that her wise words will be forever remembered. If anyone is looking for someone to truly personalize their ceremony and make it their own Jennifer is the person for you! Jennifer was the best person for us and we will be forever thankful for her wise and carefully crafted words for us. Thank you again!

  • Words will never be adequate to express our love and gratitude to Jennifer for creating and officiating our wedding ceremony. She worked with us to get to know us and craft a beautiful ceremony that exceeded our dreams and expectations. Jennifer was able to communicate our intentions towards each other as well as the love we share with each other better than we could have! Our guests are still raving about Jennifer and the ceremony and how much they loved how the traditional was weaved into personal and not so traditional vows. Most of our guests believed that Jennifer was an old friend of ours - that's how comfortable and knowing she has become to us. She will be a lifelong friend of ours, also! Don't hesitate to have her officiate your wedding, she is a true gem!

  • Jennifer was the perfect officiant for our non-religious wedding and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a genuine, unique ceremony! First off, she is one of the kindest people my husband and I have met, and she was such a grounding force throughout our wedding process. She has a laid back energy, but she is super organized and helps to ensure that you're present and intentional in your vow creating process. The promises box that she creates is individualized and based off of the promises that you and your partner make to one another in the days before the wedding. It was an amazing keep sake, and she put so much effort into writing each promise onto a plaque. She also incorporated a hand fasting ritual for us, and everyone who attended our wedding spoke specifically to the emotion conveyed through Jennifer's expertly written words. I had a moment of major disappointment on my wedding day, and Jennifer was right there offering a listening ear and helping to ground me with th... Read more
