  • Joan made our ceremony memorable, meaningful, and beautiful in every way. We connected with her immediately, and she was there for us every step of the way. Joan went out of her way to ensure that our wedding was perfect and exactly what we wanted it to be, and we could not be more happy and honored that she was our wedding officiant.

  • Joan was perfect. Finding the right officiant for our wedding was one of the most important things for us, and as a couple planning a wedding from 1000 miles away, it was causing us a lot of stress. Or it was, until the moment we first met Joan on a video chat. My wife and I both finished that first conversation, turned to each other and said, "we've found the perfect person." We were instantly comfortable with her. She worked with us every step of the way, taking time to really get to know us and learn our story while crafting the most amazing ceremony that blended my wife's religious upbringing and my secular one. She managed to say all the right things, finding the perfect words to say what we were feeling. The wedding was performed with such care, heartfelt emotion and grace that no one we talked to afterward could believe Joan had only known us a few months. Joan did everything in her power to make our wedding the best day it could be. We would choose her again in a heartbeat.

  • I read glowing reviews of Joan and her work in conducting marriage ceremonies and was impressed but had wondered if she would live up to the glowing reviews. Happily she did and did so in a very humble and loving way. I would highly recommend her to anyone for her simple and heartfelt ceremonies. It was hard to believe that she had just met us as her ceremony was so personally relevant and touching. Thanks You Joan. William Wereley

  • Rev. Joan Javier-Duval performed such a wonderful ceremony. The ceremony she wrote to us was beautiful and unique. It was such a wonderful experience and we will always remember these memories for a lifetime. We are excited to recommend her to other couples.

  • We knew we wanted Joan to officiate our wedding after seeing her guest preach at our church; She has a calm presence, and an everyday relevant kind of wisdom. Thanks to Joan, our ceremony was perfect. She got to know us, and worked with us to make everything very “us.” We had barely a vague idea of the type of service we wanted, which was more about recognizing and celebrating the love that existed than saying “till death do us part.” And, as a multiracial queer couple, we were a little worried about bringing our families together. (We had southern conservative, military, queer, white, African American and Filipino all in one sanctuary.) Joan helped us pick meaningful vows and readings for our ceremony – readings we would never have found on our own! She also helped us to include some traditional elements from our families’ cultures and, at the end of our ceremony, had everyone come together to lay hands on us. It ended up being so sweet and so special - the moment of the... Read more

  • We were so lucky to have Joan as our officiant at our ceremony. We were looking to have a spiritual ceremony with an officiant who matched our values of love and social justice. Joan worked with us during premarital counseling, and these sessions centered us enormously as we were preparing for the great day. She was a spiritual center not only for our impending wedding, but also for our marriage. The day of, she officiated a personal, heartfelt ceremony - I could not have dreamed of anything better. Our guests stopped us specifically to tell us how meaningful and wonderful Joan's leadership was during the ceremony. We are so so grateful to Joan - we cannot recommend her more.
