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!

Wedding Officiant

Working with Joannie for our wedding ceremony was a delightful experience. We were unsure as to what to say for our vows and are not the kind of people who do well public speaking. Joannie took care of everything and put together a beautiful, very unique, personal, and moving ceremony. She makes you feel so comfortable, our guests assumed we had known her for years. We would highly recommend Joyous Journey Celebrations for any of your event needs

Wedding Officiant

We had a small backyard ceremony and used Joannie as our officiant. Joannie was professional, upbeat and very personable. The presence of Joannie had a very calming affect on the whole ceremony. Within seconds of meeting her my nervousness went away. Joannie is very warm and comfortable to be around. Joannie, thank you for making our special day so perfect. Cindy & Ken 💛

We had a online ceremony and she will be there for my bigger wedding and we were so happy she helped us get married before. She included our kids in our vows it was a beautiful day
