  • She was absolutely perfect for our day! She was amazing at keeping in contact throughout the entire process. I absolutely love that she gave us the options to pick our own verses from her standard document. Of course our wedding started later than it was supposed to and she was very understanding. I would definitely recommend her to anyone out there the price is 1000% worth her service! Thank you so much for being apart of our day.

  • Jackie was great! She helped us customize our ceremony so that way it reflected our beliefs and gave us several options so that we could pick our which version spoke to us best. When a small hiccup arose, she alerted us with as much notice as possible and we were able to smooth it out. If you are looking for a minister that will accommodate a wide range of belief traditions and help reflect your personality, I would recommend Jackie!

  • My husband and I had excellent experience with Jackie! She met with us before the wedding, offered us variety of ideas and options for the ceremony, patiently guided us through the whole process. She is very kind, understanding, and easy to work with. Our ceremony was flawless and everyone enjoyed it. We are glad Jackie was the part of our special moment!

  • Reverend Jackie was wonderful. She was so helpful and understanding. She was very responsive to emails and even sat down with us to go over what we wanted for the ceremony and our personalities. She showed up on time and the ceremony she crafted for us was beautiful. I highly recommend her for your special day.

  • Rev. Jackie arrived later than expected to my daughter's wedding (no GPS), and seemed to take an instant disliking to us. We ALL felt it. She made the Groomsmen MOVE the archway that we had spent a considerable amount of time building and planting into the ground, and it broke and fell to the ground right after the ceremony. She started coughing immediately into the ceremony (ever heard of putting cough drops in your pocket?), to the point to where she STOPPED THE CEREMONY for someone to go get her a bottle of water. I was not pleased with her service, and would never recommend her to a friend.

    responded with the following comments.

    I did not arrive later than expected to the wedding- I did arrive late to the rehearsal due to incorrect mapquest directions. I did not take any type of dislike to them at all- I was anxious due to driving around for an hour and not able to make it to the rehearsal on time. I arrived 1/2 hr early for the wedding, and then they were not ready to start for another 20 minutes after that. I did not make anyone move the archway at all- I have no idea where this comes from. It was windy and the archway way was blowing away and the stakes came out of the ground and they repositioned it on their own., to keep it from falling over during the wedding. They forgot to set up the Unity Candles and I got them and set it up for them myself, without being asked. I had cough drops with me in my portfolio and when I unexpectedly had an allergy attack during the ceremony I used them. Unfortunately I was still coughing ( which has NEVER happened before in 14 years of doing weddings) and I did ask someone to get me some water, but could not continue at that point due to the cough. It was all of a 30-45 sec break, and then I was fine. And then I was given a tip when paid.?? I kept apologizing for the cough. Unfortunately there was something that sparked an allergy attack- and there was nothing I could do about that.

  • The ceremony was great! Exactly what we wanted. I will say though, Jacqueline was slightly abrasive during other parts of her time with us. It took us a moment to get our ceremony going and when she first arrived we asked if she needed anything else form us and it just was an awkward interaction for such a busy/lovely/stressful day. We also had a balance due- which was fine but she failed to bring it up on her own and we sent my father in law to talk to her and clear things up. I would have thought when we asked if she needed anything else from us she would have mentioned it instead of being so standoffish. If you are looking for someone bubbly for your big day- just be aware that it will not be that way. That being said, our actual ceremony was beautiful. It was just the in between interactions that were a bit off.

    responded with the following comments.

    I am so sorry that I came off as standoffish in the interactions. I was very sick that day, and in pain and was making an effort not to show it. I have never had this complaint before, so again I apologize. As far as the balance due, when asked if I needed anything else from you, I just did not want to mention it before the ceremony to throw a damper on anything, since you did not mention it. We had discussed via e-mail a few days before, so I just assumed you would have the balance ready for me. I was concentrating on getting thru the ceremony in the correct manner of what you wanted.
