Crystal C.

Wedding Officiant

Working with Joannie was fantastic! She always responded to all of my messages promptly, and accordingly, she got to my ceremony early, and was very professional and kind. She was very upbeat and personable, and even though I know she does this all the time, she made it feel so special! If you are planning your wedding I would 100% recommend choosing Joannie as your officiant!

Joannie officiated our wedding. She was very warm hearted and really did a wonderful job! My husband and I wanted something intimate and brief. She was very respectful of our wishes! 😊

Wedding Officiant

Joannie was awesome. Her positive energy made my daughters day shine. Our ceremony was super last minute and Joannie was on time and prepared with all the necessary documents. Her delivery was well prepared and professional. We were glad we selected Joyous Journey Celebrations to officiate our daughter and new son-in-law's special day. Joannie we can't thank you enough!
