  • I don't even know where to begin with Jeanne. She blew away our expectations. She is 100% doing this for the right reasons and it shows through her communication with us prior to the ceremony, her thoughtful advice/expertise in the final planning stages, and through her beautiful delivery and execution of the ceremony. Jeanne provided a plethora of ceremony samples, which we used to create our own. We were very happy with the result, but Jeanne brought it to the next level. Everyone of our attendees not only cried during the ceremony, but also commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Jeanne's husband, Richard, also helps out with the coordination (for example, making sure the entrance is executed to our request) and takes a few pictures during the ceremony. We enjoyed meeting him and helping with the overall ceremony. We also greatly appreciated the pictures so we could re-live/reminisce the wedding during the honeymoon. We are so glad we found Jeanne, and we hope others have t... Read more

  • Jeanne was recommended to us by our wedding photographer. Jeanne was incredibly responsive and professional as my now-husband planned our elopement. She sent us ceremony templates that fit us perfectly--no modifications needed. I would highly recommend her if you're looking for a NH JP that will perform a dignified and special ceremony.

    Kathryn, thank you so much for this great review. You and Douglas had a stunning classic New Hampshire setting for your ceremony, and I was delighted to help make your wedding dream a reality! Best always to you both!!

  • Jeanne and her husband Richard wereamazing.. Craig and I had decided we want to finally get married after being together for 7 years. We thought it would have been harder to find a jp on such short notice but then we found Jeanne. She was available on the day we wanted and some us ceremony samples which we were able to pick through. She was very flexible as well. We had to change our rehearsal by a few hours and she had no problem with that despite it being quite a bit later. When it came time for the rehearsal she was very thoughtful with suggestions and brought an overall calming presence which helped ease some nerves. She prepared us for the ceremony that would take place the next day. When we hired Jeanne we didn’t realize her husband would be there as well but we were so glad that he was. They make an amazing team, making sure that the little nuances that can happens wouldn’t. They were very well organized and made sure that everything was in place.They were very helpful... Read more

  • I am thrilled with the services provided by Jeanne and her husband, Richard! Having Richard there on the day of the ceremony was an added bonus we were not expecting when we were looking for a JP. Jeanne provided a number of sample ceremonies for my husband and I to review and use as guidelines for designing a ceremony that was unique to us. Then, once we had a draft of the ceremony, Jeanne did her magic to make it all flow. It turned out perfect. On the day of the ceremony, Richard was there to guide people to where they needed to be and make sure that all the behind the scenes tasks were taken care of. And he also took a few pictures that he shared with us. Jeanne and Richard make a great team.

    Thank you for this wonderful review, Janet! You and Glenn, true to your adventuresome spirits, created an unforgettable wedding ceremony in an unforgettable place. Richard and I were honored to be a part of your day!

  • Jeanne and her husband Richard were absolutely wonderful to work with! We were able to put together a very personalized ceremony by piecing together different aspects of samples that Jeanne had sent us. When we met with them both at their home they were both so comforting and were able to put a lot of my anxiety about public speaking, family drama and being super emotional at ease. During the wedding having Jeanne up there with my husband and I made such a huge difference. We were able to really focus on each other and not worry about anything else. After the wedding she even sent some pics of the ceremony that Richard had taken so we could see how it looked!

    Thank you, Angela! Your hilltop wedding was gloriously colorful and filled with love. Richard and I are so glad that we were able to share the experience with you and to help make it a special memory!

  • We're so happy we chose Jeanne to officiate our wedding. She was very friendly, had great ideas, and was very attentive, making our ceremony both heart-warming and personalized! Many of our guests, unprompted, told us that they thought Jeanne was great, and that they were moved by the ceremony. Also, we didn't have a rehearsal dinner, so she invited us over to her home, where we did a mini-rehearsal. This was super helpful in getting to know her, and in making our wedding day go smoothly! We highly recommend Jeanne.

    Thank you for kind words, Liane. Although your wedding day featured rain and chilly temperatures, it was clear that you and Aakash and your many guests were ready to support you and celebrate with you. What a memorable start to your marriage! We wish you many happy years.

  • Jeanne was thoughtful, informative, involved, knowledgeable and supportive. She helped us craft our ideal ceremony and pulled it off like a pro. Our parents and friends told us how great they thought she was, and we agree. Her husband Richard is the perfect compliment to her and great logistics manager/liaison - they are a competent and kind duo. We highly recommend Jeanne and Richard - they helped make our wedding exactly what we wanted.

    Thank you for this glowing review! Your wedding was warm and wonderful - in keeping with all the great memories at Jenn's Nana's home. We're so glad we were able to help make it special!

  • Jeanne did a spectacular job for us. We wanted our ceremony to be light and to hear our guests laugh. Jeanne made sure we were at ease and it was fun for all. Perfect in every way! Thank goodness for her husband, Richard who assisted in the timing of wedding party's entrance. I might still be waiting behind the greenhouse but for him! These two are real wedding pros and we are grateful that they were a part of our special day.

    Thank you Diane! You and Rich had a wedding that sparkled with laughter, sunshine, and love. The roses in full bloom in Fuller Gardens was a delightful bonus. We are so happy to have been a part of your day!

  • Jeanne was our officiant this past weekend at the AMC Highland Center in Bretton Woods, NH. All through the process of planning our small, intimate wedding, she was very helpful with word selection, ideas, etc. We couldn't have been happier with her and our ceremony. It was absolutely pouring out on the day of our outdoor wedding and she willingly performed the ceremony outside under a patio covering even though the wind was ripping and the rain was falling hard. She was professional, so sweet, and made it a day to remember. She helped calm my nerves beforehand and said some words I will never forget. Jeanne also printed out a beautiful certificate for us to frame, and our vows to each other so we would always have them, which we greatly appreciated. Her husband, Richard, took a few incredible photos, that they emailed to us a couple days after our ceremony. They were an excellent team and we would recommend them to anyone.

    Courtney, you and Greg were wonderful to work with, and we enjoyed being a part of your wedding adventure!! Rain or shine, it's always a perfect day for a wedding in New Hampshire!

  • Jeanne is truly a master of her craft. She is warm, kind, professional and down to earth. She gave us wonderful samples of passages to help create our vows and throughout the whole process I felt she was personally invested in us and the wedding day. I would highly recommend Jeanne!

    Thank you so much, Emily. You and Dennis had such a unique wedding, tucked into the snowy hillside in Alton on a brilliantly clear day! Richard and I are happy that we were there to help make this memory with you!

  • If you're searching for a JOP in New Hampshire, look no further. Jeanne was extremely kind, accommodating, and informative. Her ability to make my very intimate wedding ceremony come together smoothly made the day stress free. Her husband Richard was also very warm and took photos for us during the ceremony since we did not hire a photographer. I cannot say enough good things about them! Jeanne truly is exceptional!

    Tracy, you and Steve invited us into a very special moment, surrounded by family and friends in a spectacular place. The music was heart-stopping, the views from the lawn of the Mountain View Grand were breathtaking, and of course the grandchildren were adorable. We wish you every happiness!

  • If you are looking for someone SUPER nice and easy to work with, Jeanne is the one to call! I contacted her last minute (we had a falling out with our other plans) and she was so nice and professional. Jeanne and her husband Richard were so welcoming, it was like I was talking to people I have known for years! I would recommend Jeanne to everyone!

    Heather, you and Jason had quite the wedding adventure, but you were undaunted by changes in plans or even raindrops. So many smiles in that little pavilion at Four Tree Island - I'm still smiling! Thank you for your kind words, and congratulations again!

  • My husband and I would highly recommend Jeanne and Richard Pounder! As a couple who had not attended many weddings we felt like we were at a loss of how the day would go, but Jeanne and Richard walked us through it all from the first moment we met them. Jeanna and Richard could not have made our rehearsal and especially our wedding day go any smoother. Jeanne came, met with us each individually before we exchanged our vows, held our hands, had us take a deep breath and ease our anxiety of fumbling through our words. She made us realize that even if we did fumble through our words, that this is how memories are made. I cannot rave enough about Jeanne and Richard, from their professionalism to their kind, positive and relaxing demeanor.

    Hi Lindsay! What a wonderful review! It means a great deal to me and to Richard to know that we're able to help our couples feel more calm and confident....and ultimately to enjoy the magic of their weddings. Your wedding at the Harris Pelham Inn was joyful and beautiful. Thanks for allowing us to share in your day. We wish you and Matthew many years of happiness!
