  • Jane is one of the best JPS in the area. From the moment you meet with her she spends her time getting to know you as a couple so she can personalize your wedding ceremon. Jane listens to your story of how life brought you together and she captures it in the ceremony with beautiful words, stories and quotes. If we had to go back and do it all again we would choose Jane in a heartbeat. Choosing her was a great descion, our ceremony was perfect it was exactly what we wanted. Jane's speaking voice is full of life, you can tell she is truly happy for the couple's she works with. She is never late and is very professional but always friendly! Jane always communicates promptly and really helps you to make the ceremony one of kind on your special day. I highly recommend Jane for anyone planning there wedding and looking for the perfect officiant, my husband and I will cherish her words for many years to come.

  • I found Jane through a search online, but it turns out all I really needed to do was ask around, because she was the first name everyone thought of when I mentioned a JP. Based on our answers to a questionnaire Jane was able to put together a beautiful ceremony that was personalized to us. We are so glad we had Jane officiate our ceremony and would highly recommend her to anyone.

  • Jane is great! We had a last minute shift and she wasn't able to be our JP but she was great to work with very interactive, wanted to learn all about us and provided a questionnaire that asked all about our journey. A last minute shift in location caused us to no longer be able to work with Jane and she was very understanding.

    I loved working with Katelyn and even though I wasn't able to officiate for her and her husband due to a time snafu, I feel honored that she would still post a review!

  • My Husband and I put together a wedding in 1 month. Thanks to Jane who made it so easy for us! She traveled to the middle of the woods to our home to perform our wedding. She was professional, helpful and wrote us a beautiful ceremony that included our kids. The personal touches she made were prefect and was able to make our short deadline! Thank you Jane for all you did for us!

    Jen and Tom had an evening wedding at their home in Alstead - I could feel the connection of family and close friends when as soon as I parked my car. They are a couple who prides themselves on making people feel comfortable by virtue of their example of love. The night air was filled with love!

  • Jane is hands down one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding. She made the whole process easy and enjoyable. My fiance, now husband was extremely nervous to read his vows, but Jane planned everything in such a way that he felt at ease. She puts in so much work to make the day special for each individual couple. We can't say enough good things about her. HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to make their ceremony specialized and personal

  • I can't say enough about how amazing Jane is. When I first reached out to her we had an hour long phone call and she brought me to tears with all of her awesome ideas! She was so flexible and easy to communicate with, and everything was so timely. You feel like you can truly build a connection with her in such a short amount of time and I think that really shows through in the ceremony she wrote for us. She is sincere and genuine and she has so much love for each and every one of her clients! I am so thankful we chose Jane to be our officiant!

  • We initially reached out to Jane for feedback on family marrying us, within minutes on the phone we decided she was the one marrying us! My husband who made very few suggestions heard her through the phone and was giving me thumbs up. Jane is very personable and she makes your ceremony about you and special. We quickly set up a meeting where we just talked, asked questions and she found out so much about us in a short period of time. Her ceremony was beautiful, personal and unique, written for George and I, not something used 100's times. She spends time and thought and makes the couples day special. She incorporated a reading by my sister in the ceremony and it was seemless. Jane has lots of ideas, but let's the couple make the final decisions. We chose to do a painting at the end of our ceremony which now hangs in our home as a beautiful memory of the day we became husband and wife. I would tell any bride and groom, if you're looking for someone who does this as a job... Go somewhere... Read more

  • Jane did a fantastic job! Our ceremony was wonderful. She made our vows very personal, she quoted Mark Twain, she also added a ring warming ( everyone passed around our wedding rings and said a prayer, blessing or good wishes) which I loved! It included our families into the ceremony itself. Jane did a great job and was amazing. Thank you Jane!!

  • This past July we had an intimate wedding with family at a private home in Surry, New Hampshire. Since we are out of state residents, we located our wedding officiant, Jane Rokes, on line. She responded immediately to our initial inquiry and was always accessible during the planning stage. We were extremely pleased with her approach in guiding us on creating a ceremony that was uniquely our own. She made an over whelming task a wonderful and memorable experience. We met Jane on the day of our wedding and her friendliness and professionalism was calming and greatly appreciated. We are so very happy that we chose Jane as our JP. She is excellent and made our wedding a perfect day!

  • We are so lucky that we found Jane! She was so friendly and responsive in the months leading up to our wedding, and truly took the time to tailor our ceremony to fit us as a couple. She was also wonderfully reassuring when it rained right before our ceremony time. Our ceremony was beautiful and exactly what I hoped it would be. I would recommend her to anyone!

  • Jane came highly recommended from our venue, and we were so lucky to have her officiate our wedding. She was extremely organized and on top of everything well ahead of time, which made the whole day run smoothly. She took the time to really get to know both of us and our relationship, and drafted a beautiful, personalized ceremony. One of our guests said that she assumed Jane was a close family friend, because she seemed to know us so well! We weren't really sure what we wanted to do for readings, and Jane was ready with some fantastic suggestions of books/quotes to use. We also wanted something unique for our unity, and Jane had a great idea for a painting unity, a beautiful keepsake we were able to hang in our home to look at and reminisce often. Her expertise and warmth helped us put together a ceremony that we loved and will remember forever. Thank you, Jane!

  • I’ve been a wedding guest at several weddings that Jane has officiated and she always does such a nice job. I immediately thought of her when it was time for me to find an officiant for my wedding. As I expected, she was absolutely a delight to work with. Jane truly tailors the ceremony to you and your partner. We had a few phone calls in advance of the big day (meeting in person wasn’t an option due to distance), so that Jane could get a sense of how we envisioned our vows. She then writes a draft and shares it with you as a preview. Jane made our ceremony exactly what we wanted it to be! She is heartfelt and generous with her words—she brought laughter and happy tears to many guests’ (and our) eyes on the big day. Additionally, I was thrilled when Jane ran the show at our rehearsal. She clearly knows what she’s doing. (My bridesmaids were also impressed!) Most importantly, she made the ceremony feel like "us," and she helped to make our wedding an incredibly happy memory. W...

    Mayfair Farm in Harrisville, NH is the venue that Hannah and Dave chose for their wedding. I felt instantly at home when I arrived. It was a gorgeous day, and Hannah is right - we laughed and celebrated - facilitating most of my rehearsals is important - I prepare a detailed worksheet so that all the work is done beforehand - thank you for appreciating the process that we as Wedding Officiants hone over time - a genuine labor of love. Happy life Hannah and Dave!!!!!!!!!

  • From the first phone call with Jane I knew she was the one I wanted to officiate our wedding. She really individualized our ceremony based on what my husband and I valued in life and each other and it was not like any other traditional wedding. I even heard “ awwws” from our guests after certain parts of the ceremony :) I highly recommend Jane !!

    Church Landing in Meredith, NH on a beautiful day provides vistas for couples' weddings that are incredible - Megan, a beautiful bride, had her guests on the edge of their seats and we waited for her arrival. Lennox, her groom was clearly in awe. They shared a painting unity and all the ceremony was the perfect mixture of light hearted and reverent - congratulations!
