How does your business stand out?

By going outside of the cookie cutter wedding script, I'm able to really give the bride and groom a ceremony that reflects their personality. Every ceremony is different!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love meeting new people and sharing such a special moment with a happy couple.

    From the moment my wife and I got engaged we realized we had no idea what direction to go as far as finding an officiant. Luckily we found Jessica who was a pleasure to work with from the very first e-mail. All we really knew was that we wanted to incorporate hand fasting and we didn't want to be much more than 30 minutes and Jessica helped us every step of the way. From planning the ceremony, rehearsal, helping ensure myself and my groomsmen were ready once we got to the chapel and then the wonderful job with the ceremony I will gladly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for an officiant for their big day.

    Jessica officiated our wedding in November 2014. She was awesome! I've known her for years, in a professional and personal capacity, and wouldn't have considered anyone else. She is professional, fun, dependable, creative, and made our ceremony one of a kind. She was so helpful in the planning phase, and took all of our wishes and ideas into consideration. The rehearsal and ceremony went perfectly! Highest recommendations without any reservations!

    Thank you Jessica. When she performed the ceremony for my daughter and son in law she was very professional and she provided the marriage ceremony that they were dreaming of. Jessica is a breath of fresh air in the wedding business. She could tell that we were very busy on the day of the wedding and asked if there was anything that she could do to help. I provided a list of things she could do and she completed each of those items. She really made it easier for me to enjoy this beautiful day. I will totally recommend her to anyone and I think she's a great person inside and out. Thank you Jessica for help creating a great and wonderful day!

    She made everything so easy, due to us not having a wedding planner for the ceremony. She was well organized and had very good ideas, she was ontime, and she made some jokes through out the ceremony that everyone laughted too.

    Jess was the best !!!! I live several hours away and even working through technology only we still were able to get the perfect ceremony together. I would recommend her to anyone who asked about needing the services she performs

    Jessica is the best person that I could have ever imagined to officiate our wedding. She took so much time with me to make sure that I got the ceremony that I wanted. She is sincere, great to work with, and a true gem of a person. She is encouraging and flexible and I truly believe it's impossible to find a better officiate out there. Bonus - she gave us the cutest idea for the end of our ceremony that fit our personalities to a T. Everyone loved it! Pros: Genuine Kind-hearted Friendly Fun Easy to work with Will offer suggestions. Heck, she is the pro at this! Will give advice on what you are looking for. Worth the money and then some! She really wants you to have the best ceremony and wedding, ever! Quick response time Cons: NONE! She is amazing!!

    Jessica recently officiated my son's wedding. She was a delight to work with, always prompt, and very efficient. She planned a beautiful and meaningful service for us to always remember. She was quite a calming influence on a very stressful day.

    Jessica more than exceeded our expectations. She is very professional and has vast knowledge of all things wedding. She was great at the rehearsal too. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.

    When it came to picking an officiant, my husband and I weren't even sure where to begin. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant than Jessica, who provided a lovely (and blessedly speedy) service for our wedding that still managed to be incredibly meaningful. Jessica was not only a top notch professional from start to finish, she was patient and understanding of our needs, interpreting our nebulous, vague desires for a ceremony into something tangible, and for that we will be forever grateful. I cannot count the amount of guests that commented about how, compared to some of the grandiose traditional ceremonies they had attended where guests suffered through an hour of standing and sitting on cue, our ceremony was quick, but not rushed, sweet without being cloying, and how our vows (as created by Jessica) were perfect for who my husband and I are as individuals, and who we are as a unit. When I reflect back on our wedding for years to come, I will never forget how Jessica crafted a ceremony, something that I admit previously viewed as an worthy necessity to get past in order to get to the reception, something that cracked my cynical attitude and will be forever memorable to both my husband and me. I cannot recommend Jessica strongly enough, just as I will never be able to thank her enough for her services at our wedding.

    Very professional and wonderful to work with. Had lots of ideas and helped us to incorporate our own touches into our ceremony. Was very helpful the day of and made our day as amazing as we had dreamed of.

    Jessica can accommodate the most detail oriented bride down to those who are clueless or simply overwhelmed and preoccupied! With her help, we handpicked our ceremony line by line and my husband even surprised me by writing his own vowels. Jessica is warm and sweet, but gets down to business. She left no stone unturned or question left unanswered. I've been to weddings and cringed as the bride didn't know when to hand off the bouquet; the parents didn't know when to kiss or the audience stood because there was no direction to be seated. Because I hired Jessica, that didn't happen at my wedding. She understood my vision and coordinated my bridal party and ceremony better than I could have imagined. I’ve recommended her to many friends and family and each ceremony was unique and beautiful. She is polished and professional. Very easily reached by email, telephone and in person-sit down meetings; you'll never feel like you are just another wedding on the books. I was stress free through the entire process; she was so easy to work with. Expectations surpassed : )

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I decided to become an ordained minister when my close friend was getting married and needed help finding an affordable officiant for her outdoor ceremony. There was an opportunity to help, so I did!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Outdoor weddings!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I am a married mom of 3, not a big business. I feel that by doing wedding ceremonies as more of a hobby than a full time job, I'm not in it for the money. I do it because I love it, which allows a more personal aspect.
