  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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

  • Jillian was super responsive, accommodating, and wonderful to work with. She spent hours meeting with us, communicating by email, contacting friends and family, and made a huge effort to help us create the wedding ceremony we wanted. I can't recommend her highly enough.

  • I would give Jillian 6 stars if I could. She was INCREDIBLE -- truly the best officiant we've ever encountered in the many weddings we've attended, and we're so glad we had her for ours. She really is a beautiful soul. Jillian didn't work from a stock template, and really got to know us and our family members. And she absolutely got us as people, capturing our values and hopes, working across our different families' faiths (Evangelical Christian and Spiritual), and even adapted on the fly to last minute changes (including the bride's sister passing out!). Jillian is a gem. Jillian is a calming presence among all the crazy things that happen leading up to the day (and there were many). Jillian helped us center ourselves and remain focused on the love between us, letting that be our guiding light instead of the many outside opinions and inputs from family and friends. She really makes you feel heard, valued, and excited about your special day. Do not go further! Book her for ... Read more

  • Jillian was absolutely a pleasure. So helpful so genuine and made us feel so relaxed on our big day. Jillian went that extra mile and brought a friend along to be our witness as it was just the two of us from New Zealand and Christine who was so lovely offered to take photos for us which was so awesome. Would highly recommend Jillian as we went by choosing officiant by their looks which a photo says it all of a person and we were right on the the nail so Thankyou Jillian for making our day awesome

  • Jillian comes highly recomended by Chetan and I for sure!!! She was such a dream to work with. Immediately put us at ease, listened, took notes as to what we wanted. She reached out to our friends to get some inside scoop to make the ceremony so intimate and just perfect. Her communication was great, she even check in with us the night before to make sure we weren't too nervous! (We weren't :)) ). Her pricing is also very fair, and we also appreciated that. Thanks again Jillian for being a part of our special day, and making it perfect.

  • We love Jillian! She was so accommodating and helpful during our whole planning process that it is hard to imagine having done it without her. She provides a diverse selection of styles and moods for the ceremony and we felt she tailored just the right tone for us. Her professionalism and composure are also a great comfort during what can be an anxious time. She's also just fun to chat with, down-to-earth, warm, and a great sense of humor. We would not hesitate to recommend Jillian for any type of gathering.

  • They say everything happens for a reason and the day before our wedding, our officiant called to cancel. I came very close to losing it but from the second I first heard Jillian's voice on the phone I knew that our wedding day was gonna be special. I briefly described our relationship to her and less than 10 minutes later she sent me an email with the description of the ceremony. It was flawless. The way she described our love, the way she included special moments and our guests in the event, even her own expression of joy was pure and sincere. We can't wait to start celebrating our anniversaries in the same charming pagoda in Central Park, with our funky group of friends and of course with Jillian by our side.

  • Jillian was so great to work with, and we got so many compliments on our ceremony. We met Jillian in person to go over what we wanted our ceremony to be like. We spent about an hour or two together where she asked us questions about our relationship, how we met and what we love about each other, so she could get to know us. We also filled out a questionnaire, and she quoted some of what we said about each other in the ceremony, which made our ceremony very personal. My favorite part of our ceremony was that she got in touch with our friends and family to ask them about us as a couple, and she included their stories and sweet words in the ceremony, making it very personalized to us, which we loved. She was super easy to work with, as well. She sent us a draft of our ceremony and changed anything we wanted adjusted. We didn't have any changes, but she would have written something completely new if we needed her too. Lastly, we didn't know exactly what we wanted in our ceremony,... Read more
