Introduction: Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Jacqui has been an ordained minister since June 2015. With over three dozen weddings under her belt, she brings her outgoing, non-judgmental personality and a "thinking-out-the-box" approach to each wedding she officiates. Her easy demeanor is what attracts couples to book her services. She performs weddings for all couples, including religious and secular ceremonies, cultural ceremonies, cosplay and LGBT weddings. Jacqui became ordained when same-sex marriage was legalized in New York. Her firm belief is: "Love has no shape or form - it just is". **Fun Fact about Jacqui - she is also a licensed esthetician. She'll have you glowing on your special day!** She knows that every couple is different. At Sanctum Weddings & Elopements, there are a variety of ceremonies and services to choose from: On-the-Spot Elopements Traditional Vow Renewals Bridesmaid 911 Services Non-Denominational LGBTQ Themed "Day Of" Event Planner Catering & Food Service Personnel Pre Wedding & Wedding Day Skin Care Prep A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JACQUI Hi & congratulations on your upcoming nuptials! I'm sure you're nervous, and that's ok. This is, after all, one of the biggest days of your lives. Choosing someone to marry you is just as important as picking out the proper venue, dress, cake, partner (lol) well, you get the idea! Just so you know, no idea is too little or too extravagant for me. I work with couples closely to ensure they receive the attention and details necessary so that their day is as memorable as it should be! Want to marry at a baseball game? I can do that! Want to marry on a vineyard? Let's make it happen! Are you a Star Wars buff - let's all get dressed up! How amazing are these ideas? Let's work closely together so that all YOU need to worry about is showing up on your special day! You live busy lives - that's why I make myself available to you via email, phone, text, ZOOM, and/or face-to-face during the planning stages of your ceremony. I love being a part of a couple's special day! So much emphasis is placed on the event, that sometimes, couples forget it is about THEM and not the party, the food, or future in-laws! I guide couples during the weeks and days that lead up to their wedding; answering any questions they may have, calming their nerves, and putting their minds at ease before the ceremony itself, all while helping them realize their wedding day dreams. Allow me to be a part of yours!

Jacqui was INCREDIBLE!! She came through when we needed an officiant last minute and beautifully was able to save our big day. She was so professional, on point and was so kind to us throughout the entire process. I’d recommended her always. We feel so happy that she was there on our best day ever. Thank you again Jacqui!!!

Wedding Officiant

Only being able to give Jacqui 3 qualities is an injustice to her. She was amazing the entire process from helping us lock down a location to how the ceremony would take place. She made sure to make the ceremony specific to us. 10000% recommend! Than you for making our day so special (even with the cyclists 😜)!
Sanctum Weddings & Elopements's reply
Josh thank you so much for allowing me to perform the ceremony at your wedding. You and Nir were. delight! The cyclists definitely helped break the ice and set the mood for the rest of the ceremony! Many good wishes and blessings to you both! ❤️

Wedding Officiant

We could not have been happier. Jacqui made our day so special. From answering our panic calls to writing the most beautiful ceremony. We could not have had a more beautiful ceremony. Due to covid all our wedding plans got changed but it worked out 100 times better. Jacqui was so helpful, professional, and overall a kind person. Thank you again for making our day beyond special🥰
