  • Simply put, Jillian is amazing! My husband and I interviewed many officiants and were about to give up and settle. We spoke to Jillian over the phone first and felt a connection. We liked that she offered to meet with us in person. During this meeting, we immediately knew that we wanted Jillian to be our officiant. She didn’t once pressure us into committing to her and she simply used the meeting to talk about her experiences and to get to know us a little better. After signing with her, Jillian met with us again and asked us many more questions about our relationship. She exuded a comforting energy that allowed us both to be open with her. Additionally, she contacted our friends/family to get more information about us for a bespoke marriage story. In the end, we were so happy with the content that she came up with! Jillian made our ceremony very special and unique with our marriage story. Our family and friends commented on how beautiful our ceremony was. If you want an officiant wh... Read more

  • Jillian officiated our wedding in LIC this past May. She is so lovely to work with--we really enjoyed collaborating with her to create a beautiful, non denominational ceremony. Jillian has a great framework for creating a unique ceremony. She really listened to what we wanted (to be clear, we had no idea what we wanted when we first met her) and guided us through the process. Jillian has a graceful, calming presence and we were thrilled to see her on our wedding day. If you have come across this review: contact Jillian ASAP!

  • Jillian went above and beyond to make our wedding ceremony amazing. So many guests told us that our ceremony was one of the most beautiful they'd ever witnessed, and were asking where we'd found her! She really captured who we are as a couple, and made our ceremony feel so intimate, loving, and funny. I cannot recommend her enough.

  • We were planning a small legal ceremony in Fort Tryon Park before heading to Italy for the larger symbolic ceremony, and we wanted an officiant who could help us make the day incredibly special. Jillian was amazing from the first point of contact to the day of the event. She was very friendly, well-organized, and clearly knew her stuff. But most importantly Jillian took the time and care to make sure that she got to know us and helped craft a ceremony that was personal and intimate, and really was fitting of our love for each other. Jillian was the consummate professional, and went above and beyond on the day of the wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly and beautifully, and even helped calm my nerves before the big moment. After the ceremony she took care of all the paperwork and followed up with very kind words of support for our marriage. We would recommend Jillian in a heartbeat to anyone looking for an officiant in the NYC area!!!

  • Jillian was super, at every stage of the process. From the initial phone call, she immediately reassured my questions and was warm, welcoming and easy to talk to. We weren’t really sure how to structure the ceremony, having no clear denominational preference, and again Jillian came through, giving us options as she helped us figure out what might work for us. More than anything however, it was a pleasure to have such a positive and joyful presence at the ceremony. Totally professional but never at the expense of personal warmth; we couldn’t recommend Jillian highly enough.

  • Jillian was fantastic to work with. So professional and truly cared about us as a couple. We are from Toronto, and as such were unable to meet in person prior to the wedding- my first time seeing her in person was as I walked up the aisle! However, that didn't affect our service level from Jillian at all. We video chatted, emailed, and Google Doc'd our way to our perfect ceremony. The effort she put in was beyond anything we could have hoped for, even from 500 miles away. It put my mind at ease knowing that I didn't have to worry about anything. I could not be happier with Jillian, and she truly helped to make our day perfect.

  • We got married on September 1, 2019 with Jillian being our ceremony officiant. As soon as we booked her service after the initial call, she sat down with us in person to better understand our expectation for the ceremony. Jillian then helped us personalized the entire ceremony flow, including a few special requests to incorporate Chinese cultural elements such as a tea serving ceremony. She even practiced a Mandarin blessing just for us!!! The day we finally met Jillian prior to the ceremony she was so calm and elegant that our parents immediately felt at ease. Our guests were all super impressed by the cultural elements which we couldn't have accomplished without Jillian's patient advices. Thank you Jillian, for making our special day even more memorable!

  • I can't say enough about Jillian. We have a beautiful story (as so many others do) and Jillian was able to depict it with grace, love, kindness, emotion and as if she herself, has known the story intimately. Jillian took the time to get to know us directly and through friends/family and created a ceremony that so many people have said was "one of the most beautiful, emotional, gorgeous ceremonies they have ever been to." Thank you Jillian for making our day even more special. You will not be disappointed in this gem of a find!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our wedding than Jillian. She took the time to meet with us prior the wedding in order to get to know us, was easy to talk to and insightful with helping us figure out what type of service we wanted for our big day, and most importantly performed a beautiful ceremony for us. We had multiple people who told us how much they loved the ceremony and how well it captured us. We would highly recommend Jillian.

  • I am so happy that we chose Jillian to be the officiant at our wedding. My husband is shy when meeting new people and she made us both feel extremely comfortable when communicating with her. Jillian is so easy to work with. She responds very quickly and clearly. She helped explain how the ceremony timeline works which was great, because it definitely helped lower the stress level. I completely trusted her to use her judgement in writing our ceremony script. Jillian is a talented writer and really knows how to make words come together. I absolutely LOVE that she didn't judge us when I asked if we could incorporate Harry Potter into our script. She was very open to the idea and I can tell worked very hard to make that happen. She went above and beyond to research and give further ideas of how we can play Harry Potter into our wedding ceremony. Jillian was friendly, professional and just had an overall great personality to bond with. I've attended weddings where the officiant's vibe is "j... Read more

  • Jillian was amazing to work with right from the start! We loved that she met with us in person to get to know our background story and reached out to our family and friends to get their perspectives as well. She also gave us many options of what we could incorporate into the ceremony to customize it as we’d like. She was very professional and flexible throughout our time working with her and her calming demeanor during the rehearsal put us at ease that everything will go smoothly on our wedding day. She was the perfect officiant for our wedding and she delivered the personalized touch we were looking for to make our ceremony special. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Jillian as your officiant!

  • Jillian was absolutely the best! She has a very positive and comforting energy about her. She met up with me and my now husband at a coffee shop to ask some questions and get to know us. From there she created the best opening statement telling our love story. I highly recommend her to everyone!

  • Jillian was amazing from the beginning. My husband and I had interviewed with several officiants before choosing her . She was immediately responsive, understanding and willing to look at our idiosyncratic needs as a couple. We wanted a blend of the traditional and unconventional. She completely heard what our wants were and crafted a beautiful ceremony. She spent 2 hours with us to get information for a wedding story that was shared during the ceremony. When we read the draft we cried out of happiness because it was just so perfectly us. She interviewed two friends to get their thoughts and outside perspectives on this too which was very thoughtful. During the ceremony she was clear, passionate and organized. We had so many people come up to us after telling us how wonderful she was and asking us if she was our friend prior because she understood us so well. It was really what made our ceremony so special. We can't thank her enough. THANK YOU JILLIAN! I was so happy to be able to wri... Read more
