    Thanks to Jennifer for officiating my recent wedding! She was very attentive to my needs by offering suggestions, but helping me to make changes that worked. She was always available to answer emails and helped to reduce the stress that often comes with getting married. I would recommend her for all types of weddings.

    Jennifer officiated my marriage on 8/23/13. She was very professional, and very helpful. She did not charge much, and she even met me downtown at the court house to sign our marriage licnense. I would reccomend her to anyone, big or small; she is perfect for the job!

    Jennifer performed the wedding ceremony for my husband and I in October of 2012. We presented no small list of challenges to any officiant. My husband and I have very different religious beliefs, (I am devout Christian, he is happily agnostic.) and I also had a lot of restrictions in how the ceremony could proceed, because of physical handicap. From our very first meeting, Jennifer was professional, enthusiastic, warm and funny. She did a magnificent job in creating a ceremony that not only reflected and respected both of our beliefs, but really represented us, as a couple, as well. She had seemingly countless ideas for ways to make everything happen that we wanted, and even a couple of ideas we would not have ever come up with. And when my extreme illness in the months leading up to the wedding prevented us from having the time, or really even the ability to write our own vows as I had wanted so badly, Jennifer not only offered a great deal of support and compassion, she also managed to create a set of vows that really reflected my husband and I. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony, and unequivocally the best day of my life. I truly can not count the number of guests who remarked on how beautiful, and emotional, our ceremony was. I would enthusiastically recommend Jennifer as a wedding officiant to any bride and groom looking for a a ceremony that truly reflects their relationship, and their love.

    Jennifer was my officiator for my wedding this past Saturday June 9, and I love her. From day one to the date of the event she was very professional, very detail she did everything we ask and more and especially she was very prompt on time I felt so bad that she had to wait for me and never once did she complain. Thank you so much you really truly made my wedding day a dream come true for me and my husband. For anyone looking for a professional and a friend at the same time who is truly understanding of any situation and custom I recommend you to Jennifer Arzaga and again thank you!!!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the person you are going to work with for your wedding ceremony is someone that is willing to do it your way. Offering ideas and advice is one thing, but someone who seems to judge your ideas or won't edit to your liking is only going to make you regret your choice in the end.
