Introduction: The ceremonies I provide are not cookie cutter types. Each ceremony is customized to the couples' wishes. I also offer to include family traditions and specific requests of each client. I love being able to provide couples with a ceremony that is meaningful to them. Try to help couples start their new life together with meaning. I do not require any classes or commitments to a specific religious group. I am a religious and spiritual person but do not press my views onto my clients.

Jan was amazing. She was always prompt in her correspondence and I appreciated the reminders as it got closer to our wedding date. She also provided several ceremony scripts which I used to customize my own. I would highly recommend her to officiate your wedding.

We went with Jan because she officiated my brother's wedding last year and she did a wonderful job. She sent us multiple sets of vows/readings to choose from and was always quick to reply to messages. Great service all around, thank you!

Ms. Jan has started helping the moment I contacted her. She provided a lot of useful materials and advises on our intimate backyard wedding. She showed up early and communicated all the details about the ceremony very well with us and our family members too! She even stayed behind to take pictures for us! We are so happy to have her as our wedding officiant! It’s such an honor!

FAQs

  • 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.
