  • Contacted Janice and scheduled a ZOOM meeting. Got acquainted and discussed the type of wedding we wanted. We gave her some dates and she was flexible and accommodating to our location. She gave us some good resources to plan our Ceremony. When the day came, she was right on time. She was flexible and patient while we prepared. The Ceremony was everything we hoped for and exceeded our expectations. Choosing Janice will make your day special in every way. She went over and above the call of duty. It made our day Perfect IN EVERY WAY!!!

  • Janice was so awesome to work with, especially during these challenging times of Covid-19. She zoomed with me to go over details and gave me a ton of options for the ceremony. She even let me decide what we wanted to be announced as at the end. She was friendly, prompt and easy to work with. Highly recommend, 5 stars!

  • We can't say enough wonderful things about Janice! From our first call to the filing of our marriage certificate, Janice was knowledgeable, professional, patient - really a joy to work with. She truly understood what we were looking for in a ceremony, weaving in anecdotes about our relationship to make it personal but not cheesy. And her delivery was just absolutely perfect! Of course, we were disappointed when the pandemic ruined our original plans - but our COVID wedding turned out better than we could have ever imagined and a big reason for that is Janice. Thank you, thank you!

  • We found Janice last minute as we arrived in Maine to elope. While we hired her to officiate she helped us plan the whole thing and made our experience so easy and enjoyable. She was able to suggest venues, provide ceremony options and even provide the witnesses. She accommodated a couple of last minute changes and helped us obtain documents in record breaking time. While Jack and I were in Maine alone for the ceremony, Janice made us feel like we were among friends. She was a complete pro and a lovely part of our wedding. Serendipity I think!

  • Working with Janice was exactly what I was looking for- personal, professional, easy, and genuine. Although our original wedding plans were changed due to COVID, Janice helped make our wedding perfect. We were able to meet and discuss our specifics over zoom and she helped us to craft a perfect ceremony that included our kids and our personalized vows. I felt her love come through in our ceremony and that made it so special. Janice was very helpful in suggesting and finding a sight for us (since we were traveling from out of state) and even brought help to hold our tablet to allow our family to zoom in. I would absolutely recommend Janice!

  • Janice was invaluable throughout the process/planning of our wedding. Janice was accommodating and knowledgeable about local places to hold our outdoor elopement. She was very helpful in answering all of our questions/concerns. Getting married during a pandemic wasn’t our ideal situation, but we couldn’t have made it work without Janice!

  • Janice was amazing to work with - she helped us put together the ceremony and wrote a beautiful address. Planning (& replanning) a covid wedding/elopement can be a bit stressful, and once I found Janice I knew we were in good hands for the ceremony. She was also incredible flexible when we moved up our weekday wedding by a day to avoid a storm! Highly recommend having Janice be part of your special day!

  • Janice is a dream to work with. She made our elopement planning so easy, and was flexible when we had to move our wedding date. Most importantly, Janice understood how important it was that every word of our ceremony resonated with my husband and I. She was also fantastic in recommending several beautiful and fitting wedding sites, which was so helpful for us, as we don't live in Maine. I could not recommend Janice enough! She's amazing, and she will help bring your wedding vision to life.

  • After having to scramble at the last minute to find an officiant (4 days before our wedding date), Janice was super responsive, flexible, and accommodating. She worked with us to create a custom ceremony, blending some samples she provided with words and sentiments that were meaningful to us as a couple. Her soothing voice just added to the intimacy and specialness of our ceremony! Would highly recommend!

  • I can't say enough nice things about Janice's performance. We were visiting Portland, Maine for the first time so we knew very little about it. Janice provided options not only for our wedding, but also our trip. We were very pleased with her suggestions. Janice couldn't have been more patience with us either. Getting married in Portland was once a whimsical idea, but something we wanted to happen--Janice was there every step of the way. Janice even grab a bouquet for me to give to my fiancee, now wife. If you're looking to do what we did, go with Janice!!!

  • Janice was an amazing officiant for our DIY wedding. She encouraged us to understand what we wanted in a ceremony and then provided us with the means to achieve it. Through her guidance and flexibility, we were able to have exactly the type of ceremony we wanted - despite not at first knowing what we truly wanted! She orchestrated the rehearsal and ceremony beautifully. She is a wonderful speaker (you can tell as soon as you speak to her) who delivered our ceremony in perfect fashion. We also sincerely appreciated all her help with the legal aspects of getting married as well! Do not hesitate to hire Janice; she is a talented officiant and also an all around great person.

  • My husband and I had Janice officiate our small, backyard wedding on September 10th. We recommend her without hesitation! After reaching out to her by email and confirming she was available that day, she scheduled a phone call to get to know us (we talked about how we met, how long we’ve been together, what our wedding was going to be like, etc.) During the call I could tell that she had a lovely speaking voice (important for an officiant!), and on the wedding day I was almost overcome with her delivery of our ceremony as it was happening. The perfect speed, volume, phrasing...it was just wonderful. Pertaining to things leading up to the wedding and afterwards she was extremely helpful (e.g. sending us a collection of sample ceremonies that we used as templates to create our ceremony), reliable and thorough (e.g. fast communication via email, completing and filing the marriage license after the ceremony, etc.). Janice definitely was an essential part of what made our day so speci... Read more
