  • It is extremely difficult to get things done during a pandemic, let alone a wedding. Our original wedding venue was canceled due to the CVOD19, and Janet kindly offered to officiate us in her secret garden. Janet was professional, courteous, and considerate. The flowers in the garden are pretty, and the timing for the foliage could not be better. We are usually picky and we all agree it just could not be better. This is a review and also a BIG THANKS letter because Janet is the person who made all this happen!!!

    Oh Hao! What a lovely and kind thing to say. I love weddings and to share my Garden with you and Jie who had so much disappointment was precious. I am so glad that Mother Nature cooperated with us. Your photos are gorgeous. Best of luck to you and all of yours. Best. Janet

  • Charlie and I found Janet on a search engine and thought to ourselves how does this work?! Janet was quick to respond and answered and eased all of our concerns. She was flexible in arranging a meet and greet and we even invited her and her husband Paul to lunch to get to know them better which she happily accommodated. By the time the big day came we felt her to be a friend and the ceremony was delightful. To our surprise not even 24 hours after our ceremony Paul had delivered a beautiful video with photos that even our photographer had and captured a complete and utter surprise of joy!! I recommend this couple highly and would not have chosen anyone else! Love them! Tanya and Charlie Biasin

  • After our original wedding plans were scrapped due to covid we weren't sure we were still getting married on our original date. Once we decided yes we were less than 2 weeks away. Janet was able to immediately accommodate us and came to our backyard to officiate. She was very professional and courteous and we were very grateful to have her.

    Congratulations again to you both! It was pleasure to have Officiated your Marriage ceremony. I hope to hear back from you next year when you do the big Wedding. Stay safe, Janet

  • Janet was great to us. Due to COVID-19 our wedding was cancelled. We moved the date to 2021, and booked with her again. She performed the service for a small ceremony this year with our parents and my daughters. She preformed a short but tender service as requested and was very pleasant to engage with. As a bonus, with our permission, her husband took some photographs through out the ceremony and put together a sweet slideshow for us. We look forward to working with her again next year for our formal ceremony and friends and family.

    Thank you, Keith, for taking the time to do this review. I am excited that I get to see you and Alesha again next year! Best to you and your family. Until 2021, Janet and Paul

  • Janet always responded very quickly and was very flexible to time and place as we were getting married in the middle of a pandemic! She was very helpful and knowledgeable with helping us write our vows and choosing music. The little extras that she provides are “icing on the cake”

    Hello Gary and Karen. Thank you for the heartfelt review. You two make a beautiful couple. It was my pleasure to have been a part of your Special Day. Best to you both and your family. Best, Janet

  • We reached out to Janet for our wedding with only 3 weeks notice and we’re so happy with her as our Justice of the Peace. She responded to us so quickly and always answered my many emails right away. We were not writing our own vows, but she provided us with options so that we had wording that fit us perfectly. We were aiming for a very relaxed ceremony and she was able to really go with the flow, and even guide us where we needed it. In addition to a great ceremony, the pictures Janet’s husband took were awesome! Getting an email the same weekend with a video of the pictures was great to be able to show those who weren’t at our ceremony since it was very small. I would definitely recommend Janet to any other couples getting married.

    Thank you for your kind review. It was my honor and pleasure to have been a part of your Special Day. Best to you and your lovely family. Janet and Paul Moriarty

  • Janet arrived at our venue to perform our wedding with her husband who took several photographs and compiled them into a slide show that was really nice and a completely unexpected surprise. She also delivered an incredible and thoughtful ceremony! I couldn’t have been happier and I would highly recommend Janet!

  • What a wonderful JP Janet is! We wrote our own vows and she had no issues with it, was super professional and nice, and there were just so many little “extras” we were not expecting from her that made the day and experience so memorable and beautiful!

    Hello Paul and Meg. Congratulations again. What a wonderful family you have. Best to you all. Thank you so much. Best, Janet

  • Janet is absolutely fantastic. My son’s original JP had to back out of his wedding at the last minute. We put a request out on WeddingWire about 2 weeks before the wedding. Janet got back to us that night. The ceremony was beautiful. Her husband took pictures and sent us a slideshow of the ceremony. Her and Paul made the day wonderful.

    Oh Kim, thank you so very much. That means so much to Paul and I. Perhaps we could get together one day for coffee, both you and your Mom. Best, Janet

  • Janet officiated our October wedding at Flag Hill Winery. She was lovely to work with--very responsive and willing to work with us on the wording for the ceremony. She also met with us twice leading up to the wedding to go over the ceremony. I was an anxious bride, so it was nice to have someone to go over exactly what was going to happen and what we needed to do. Her husband also tagged along and took pictures during the ceremony, then made a little video for us, which was a really nice touch!

  • Janet was so easy to work with! She met with us on multiple occasions to walk us through the ceremony and gave us tips and pointers. On top of that, she made a video montage for us of the pictures her husband took during the ceremony. Highly recommend Janet!

    Thank you for the lovely review. I don't know if you have visited my Janet Moriarty JP Facebook page but you are my front page couple. I wish you both my very best. Janet

  • My husband and I decided to get married very spur of the moment. Janet was not only able to preform the ceremony but has a beautiful garden where we were able to do the ceremony. She made it very special for us and worked with us because of my husband’s illness. What was going to be just a quick trip to a justice of the peace turned into a beautiful ceremony, beautiful pictures and a video and wonderful memories. It was a perfect day thanks to Janet.

    Oh Tina..thanks for that lovely review. I love making couples' ceremonies special. Best to you both now and always, Janet

  • Janet was wonderful to work with. She was professional, available and answered all the questions that we had. She walked us through the ceremony and was there through each step. During the ceremony her husband even had taken a few photos and presented my husband and I a beautiful slideshow of the ceremony and this is something we will cherish forever. I would highly recommend Janet as your JP and truly appreciate everything that she did to make our wedding day so special!

  • Janet was simply wonderful, not only was she kind and understanding of our needs and wants for a wedding ceremony she worked with us to make sure each portion of the ceremony was personalized. The planning process was a breeze with her knowledgeable input and pointers. Her husband was there to help capture the ceremony moments and even put them into a short video for us. We did not have the budget for a formal wedding video so this was something that we will treasure always. We will certainly refer Janet to our friends and family should they need an officiant for a wedding. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special.
