  • We are extremely pleased with Jennifer's officiant services and would highly recommend her to any couple planning to marry in the Bar Harbor, Maine area. Jennifer recommended various private locations along the coast and was very willing to drive to meet us at any location that we chose. She was very friendly, provided beautiful vows for us to exchange, and was responsive to our many email inquiries. Jennifer made our marriage very memorable.

  • Definitely book Jennifer for your Acadia wedding! She helped me surprise my wife of 20 years with a new wedding ring and a renewal of vows on the shores of Frenchman Bay, and captured priceless photos of the occasion. We give her 5 stars.

  • Our day was full of special requests including following a tide chart in order to cross the ocean to an island where the ceremony would be held and meeting us there at just the right time so I could surprise my soon to be wife. Jennifer was not only incredibly accommodating, but came up with ideas to help with the surprise. She was absolutely amazing to work with!! She was just as happy as we were and made our day so memorable. Not only was she a great officiant but she comes with an amazing eye for taking pictures, which she took so many of!! You will not regret having Jennifer be a part of your special day!!

  • We were looking for a trustworthy, conscientious, and easy going officiant to perform our elopement ceremony in Acadia National Park. In addition we were looking for a photographer that could provide us with a non-traditional photo package. We were delighted to meet Jennifer and learn that she was both a great officiant and an experienced photographer who could provide us with both services! Working with Jennifer is like having your ceremony arranged by a good friend who, more than anything, just wants to give you what you want. She’s professional, but adaptable and tries to figure out how to make your wishes happen in the most straightforward way (and not with typical add-on fees for anything special). This applies to her photography as well. She got us the kinds of pictures we wanted, the quality-level was generally excellent, and the price for everything was beyond reasonable. We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend Jennifer’s officiant and/or photo services.

    Hello Barbara and Jeff! Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure working with you both. I am grateful of the time that we were able to spend together before and after your ceremony. It was fall and our fall foliage was extended and hyper with the fantastic weather we experienced last year. It was a very special and magical afternoon!

  • Jen performed our ceremony on October 10, 2015, at The Asticou Inn. She was prompt in her responses to all of our questions, but warm and invested from the first inquiry. She enthusiastically dove head first into the somewhat wacky vibe that we wanted, and the ceremony that she came up with was absolutely perfect! She was an absolute joy to work with, and we had so much fun with her! Though we were coming in from Canada and had only met in person the night before the ceremony, it was like we were old friends. We loved her so much that we basically made her spend all weekend with us! If we renew our vows in the future, it will absolutely be Jen that will officiate again, no matter how far we have to travel to do it! We cannot recommend her highly enough!

    Oh Corinna, thank you so much for your review! You believed in me and let me run with the idea's of including your interests of World of Warcraft and the Princess Bride in your ceremony. I was filled with so much joy when I saw both of your reactions of smiles and hearing the laughter that was so contagious! Now when I look at my kitchen timer, I am reminded of Steve's "timed" vows. So remember mawage and wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva...

  • When we began searching for an officiant, we felt very good about Jennifer right away. Her reviews overflow with appreciation for her special energy and loving spirit. So, after much research, we asked her to be the officiant for our sunrise wedding atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. To our delight, she accepted. Jennifer counselled us in the requirements of obtaining the marriage license. She understood our intentions and the symbolism of our chosen venue and time, showing great enthusiasm and appreciation for our choices, despite the early hour and the possible logistical challenges. She even helped us find a way to locate witnesses for the ceremony. We chose to have a very small wedding with just the two of us. Though we didn’t want anything extravagant, we still hoped the ceremony would reflect that our journey together began over 10 years ago. Jennifer understood the importance of our history. She spent time getting to know us, tailoring the ceremony to reflect up... Read more

  • We couldn't have picked a better officiant to marry us for our wedding. Jennifer was beyond wonderful, she was there for us, supporting us, truly and emotionally. I felt that she was very much a part of our wedding, a part of our union and a part of the most important day of our lives. Jennifer made us feel very secure and supported in any changes we made in just weeks before the ceremony, she returned every phone call, email or text very promptly, she was willing and happy to change any minute detail about the ceremony. Jennifer was a joy to work with and we would very much recommend her services to the next Mr and Mrs..

  • I found Jennifer McWain by calling the town office in Northeast Harbor, Maine. The reason I called there was because we got married in Thuya Garden in Northeast Harbor. A list of possible officiants was sent to me and I totally picked Jennifer randomly. We could not of been more pleased. She was very professional and responsive. When I picked her, I did not know she is also a wedding photographer. So, for the price of $300 we hired an officiant and a photographer! She was very capable and willing to please us on our special day. We wrote our own vows, but her delivery to our guests before our vows, and ending ceremony statements were so moving, and sincere...we could not have been more pleased. The ceremony could not have been more perfect, in large part due to her professionalism.

    Thank you Jill and Larry for your review! What a special weekend that you had, the weather was prefect for your wedding hike up the terraces to the wedding site and golfing! Even thought the gardens were full of other visitors on that day, you wouldn't have know it with your family and friends surrounding you, it made the ceremony feel more intimate and special! Thank you again!

  • Jen was fantastic! She was very accommodating, sweet, and easy to work with. She truly helped make our day magical. It was a bonus that she's also a photographer, since we eloped! I would recommend her to my closest friends.

  • We had a destination in Bar Harbor- our favorite vacation spot. After getting some names of some officiants in the area I set up meetings with a few of them several months before the wedding. Once I met Jen, I knew right away she was going to be the one to officiate my wedding. She is down to earth, super friendly, funny and emotionally invested. It felt like we were old friends! We decided we wanted to use some aspects of a Quaker wedding in our ceremony and Jen was more than happy to take time to research Quaker weddings and came up with a beautiful ceremony. She is very flexible and was very patient with all the questions and ideas I sent to her via numerous emails. Her choice of readings and vows for the ceremony fit us as a couple to a "T", I couldn't have asked for anything more. Not only were we super happy with Jen, all of our family and friends loved her, too. I strongly recommend booking Jennifer McWain as your wedding officiant. Jen also was our photographe... Read more

  • Our wedding ceremony was held in the beautiful Asticou Gardens in Acadia Park, which was within minutes of Jennifer's office in Northeast Harbor. It was very convenient that she issued our marriage certificate in addition to performing a wonderful ceremony. We found Jennifer to be warm, friendly and fun; she really put us at ease. We were both very moved by the words she used for our ceremony; she was also very flexible as to the vows we recited to one another along with participation by our two witnesses. After the ceremony she took some very professional-looking photos. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in an intimate ceremony in a beautiful setting.
