  • To say that Jody is amazing is an understatement. My husband and I went into this very skeptical. We interviewed 3 officiants. Jody stood out in so many ways. She not only got to know us, she built us a beautiful ceremony that truly reflected who we are as a couple. It was so touching that our family members approached us and said it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We feel so blessed to have Jody as a friend now. Our picture with Jody from our special day has already made its way to a frame in our house. We would highly recommend her!

  • My wife and I hired Jody as our officiant for our wedding on 10/15/17, and we could not have been happier with everything she did. From our first meeting, when we talked about how she generally writes the ceremonies, to the pleasant afternoon we spent together, talking about the history of our relationship and helping Jody get a sense of who we are as a couple, to the day of the wedding itself, everything was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. One of my relatives said, after having heard the ceremony, that if they "hadn't known us before, they would have after that ceremony; [Jody] perfectly captured who [we] are as a couple." The emotion was genuine, the ceremony heartfelt, and we could not have been more pleased.

  • My husband and I used Rev. Jody as our officiant for our wedding on 10/6/17 and we are SO happy that we did! From the 1st time we met with Jody, we knew we wanted her to officiate our ceremonny. She made us feel so at ease and comfortable, it was as if we had known her for years. The ceremony she wrote for us captured EVERYTHING we wanted and was delivered perfectly! We received so many compliments from our guests on how personalized and beautiful the ceremony was, and how it was so "us", which was exactly what we were looking for. We highly highly recommend Jody!!! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and the ceremony was the perfect beginning to an amazing day! Thank you again Jody for everything!!!!!!

  • Jody thank you for making our wedding such a memorable day. We enjoyed working with you and appreciate all of your time and efforts in helping us create the perfect ceremony. We are still reminiscing in the moment, while our family and friends continue to share with us how wonderful a moment it was. We found Jody online through Wedding Wire, and after an introductory phone call we knew we had to learn more about her services. The first-time meeting with Jody we instantly knew that this was going to be an extremely comfortable setting and with so much stress and hype around planning a wedding we were so thankful for her approach and keeping everyone at ease. As we continued to meet for future planning sessions we got to experience just how personable Jody was. Before we even got into the wedding information she was asking us about things we had going on with work and family, it was always so natural to get together and get started. Weather it was in person, over the phone, or email, Jo... Read more

  • Jody was one of the best choices we made during our wedding process. Not only is she an amazing officiant but she is a good person to have on your team when you are stressed out about the wedding. She becomes a friend in the process and is someone who I hope to stay in contact with in the future to help with other life obstacles. My wife and I are not religious but Jody was still able to express our love to the crowd in a way that anyone of any religion could truly feel touched by. Sitting with her in her home and telling her our story helped reinforce the love we have for each other and reminded us why we are getting married. The wedding planning process can be extremely stressful and can sometimes be a true test to a relationship. Jody is not just an officiant but she is there to support you during this stressful time. Jody is able to point out things about you as a couple that you didn't even know were true and this helps confirm the love you have for each other. I still thi... Read more

  • Reverend Jody is very easy to work with. Prior to working with Reverend Jody, I was able to see her marry my cousin and his wife. When we became engaged less than a year later, we decided to reach out to Jody. The whole process was exciting! From our first session with Jody to our last, she made us feel so comfortable and brought our love story to life. The way she is able to listen to a couple's love story and then creatively write it for a ceremony is amazing. More than half of our guests stated how much they loved our ceremony because it was about us and our love.

  • As Jody is a family friend of my now husband, it was an easy decision to choose her. We were incredibly impressed with her process. We met with her three times in person as a couple and she asked us to tell her our story as she asked questions and took notes. It was fun to be able to talk with her about our experience as she is all about creating a service unique to us. She offered several options for tone and formality of language for us to choose from and over the next two months crafted her words to suit us. We went went over drafts of the ceremony together and it was done! Her presentation of the ceremony was flawless - the speed at which she spoke - carefully and deliberately and with honest feeling for us as people - came through and moved everyone in the room. Her humor and heartfelt caring for us and the importance of our decision to marry created an atmosphere of love and exuberance for us and our guests that we will never forget. She is a wonderful and positive spirit who... Read more

  • If you are looking for an officiant who is professional, kind hearted, responsive, well spoken and written, and someone who customizes your ceremony to you and your significant other look no further, Jody is just that. We met with Jody at her home where she greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in. While at Jody’s we spent a few hours talking, laughing and getting to know each other. We left our meeting with Jody knowing she was going to be the perfect officiant for our wedding. Jody created our ceremony and urged feedback and suggestions from us. We did not change much other than a sentence or two as the ceremony she wrote was beautiful. After the final ceremony was written and approved by us, Jody urged us to try and not read it so on our wedding day we hear it with fresh ears, which was great advice. Jody listened to our thoughts, got to know us and was able to create the most beautiful ceremony that really embodied my husband and me. She brought things i... Read more

  • I was married Dec 3, 2016 and could not have been more pleased to have chosen Rev. Jody to be our officiant! She helped make the process of creating a ceremony and writing our vows easy and stress free. I am frequently described as "Type A" and Jody made me feel secure through the whole process; I knew what to expect when and she was always following up with me before I ever had to ask her for anything. She is very kind, sweet and funny. She meet with my husband and I a few times before the wedding so that we could get to know each other, and from these meetings she wrote a personal ceremony that was very us and our friends and family loved it. After the ceremony text was finalized she advised me not to look at it again before the wedding so it would be "fresh" on the day of. Probably some of the best advice I received as it made me so much more present in our ceremony and it was new and special all over again. I could not recommend her more highly!

  • Rev. Jody was absolutely wonderful. She was able to accommodate everything we asked for; from date, time and even last minute change of location. Her ceremony speech was very touching, came from the heart, and surprisingly specific to our relationship. A week prior to the ceremony, we had one Skype session with her and a few text exchanges, and from there, she was able to put together a heart felt, beautiful, moving speech. We felt she was able to capture our emotions and journey, and made us feel as if we've known her for years! Jody even went as far as offering us an after marriage toast. We're so grateful for her and thankful she was the one to officiated us. She gave us a beautiful ceremony, one that we'll never forget. Thank you so much Rev. Jody. Xoxo, Hong Nhung and Hai. You're the best!

  • Jody was our best find for our wedding! When originally searching officiants, I was looking for someone local (my husband and I got married at the Chart House in Weehawken) to minimize on travel costs. When I found and met with Jody, I knew I didn't need to look any further! She did an absolute amazing job creating a ceremony that matched our ideas of what our ceremony would be. Jody took the time to talk with us and really get to know my husband and I. She was able to make our ceremony personal, but still balanced faith and emphasized our love story. My husband and I got so many compliments on our ceremony from our family members and friends. You will not be disappointed with Jody. She is the best!

  • There's something about Jody that makes you feel like she is part of your family even after only knowing her for a short time. After our initial Skype conversation with Jody, my wife and I decided we felt pretty good about choosing Jody to preside over our wedding ceremony. When it came time to write the ceremony itself, Jody invited us to her home for coffee and conversation. I don't think I will ever forget how I felt leaving Jody's house that day. My wife and I are generally very hesitant to share our feelings with anyone, but somehow we opened up to Jody. Walking back to my car, I was completely confident that we had made the right choice with Jody. Leading up to our wedding day we worked with Jody to write a truly personal ceremony. On our big day Jody was everywhere she needed to be and the wedding ceremony was flawless. Jody is a professional and a fantastic writer. But more importantly, she was able to connect personally with Roxanne and me. I think, if I had to giv... Read more
