From the moment we made contact she was very helpful. We had a few wedding setbacks along the way and she was very understanding she worked well with us having to initially cancel then reschedule the wedding. The day of the wedding she arrived plenty early to go over everything and lend a hand with anything we might have needed. Her kindness, professionalism and communication during everything was superior. She became a great addition to our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone In need of a weeding official. Thank you Jan, you did an awesome job for us.Nov 28, 2020Verified

Jan was amazing!! She was very kind and caring before, during and after the ceremony. Our wedding had a mixture of Indian and American traditions and Jan prepared the perfect script for our wedding. She followed up with me a week before the wedding for any last minute changes and also learned pronunciations of some Hindi words. She arrived 45 minutes early and explained details to me and my (now) husband about the sequence of the ceremony. She also did her research on Hindu traditions (garlands, sindoor) before our ceremony to make sure everything was correct on the script. She is a wonderful wedding officiant! I am so fortunate to have Jan as my wedding officiant. I would highly recommend her to anyone.Nov 25, 2020Verified

Jan was coordinated and knew what she was doing. We all LOVED her and her professionalism I couldn’t have asked for anything better. She knew how to coordinate everyone which I didn’t expected especially since she wasn’t there for very long and was only there for the ceremony portion. (She was even better than my actual wedding coordinator from my wedding venue). If your looking for a wedding officiant that gives more than just the service itself I recommend highly to Jan. Thank you Jan for making my day very special and you should DEFINITELY become a wedding coordinator hahaha 😂Oct 22, 2020Verified

Jan took care of us all of the way. When we first reached out she was quick to respond, and shared her different scripts she uses for us to choose. She was so patient and kind. The day of the wedding she showed up early, and helped with some finishing touches before the wedding began. After the ceremony, she stuck around for a bit to help take some pictures. I highly recommend Jan as an officiant!! She was amazing!Jul 5, 2020Verified

And we are forever grateful!! She was professional, friendly punctual and available last minute to save the day! Thank you Jan!!!Jan 26, 2021Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Most weddings are priced at $200 within 60 miles of my location. Most of the time I am not needed at the rehearsal, but if requested an additional $50 fee. I'm available most holidays/holiday weekends at an additional $40 fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Through email and phone or skype conversation I get specifics such as type of ceremony,special additions i.e. including children, mentioning loved ones passed, unity (candle, sand, wine), lover's knot, etc. I provide sample ceremonies for review and then customized. A draft is sent to the couple for review and editing prior to wedding day. Typically we'll not meet until the wedding or rehearsal but I'm available to meet before if requested.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Many couples were telling of difficulties getting married in specific churches. Also I wanted to offer something more personal than going to the Justice of the Peace courtroom to get married. Performing ceremonies brings me much joy and I try to reduce the stress so couples can enjoy their special occasion.
