Amazing experience

Chris was our officiant and he was absolutely amazing!! From our initial touch base to talk through our plans, to the touch bases, he (and his wife Lynda) were always warm and friendly, and very detailed. They wanted to ensure they created the vision and feel we wanted. The entire ceremony to the vows he built exceeded our expectations!

Absolutely Perfect!!

Jayne was absolutely the perfect witness!! I could not be happier with our choice to go with Jayne and "A Perfect Witness" for our special day. Jayne gave plenty of personal attention before the ceremony to ensure that it was exactly what we wanted and unique to our style. She must have spent several hours over the phone with me answering all of my questions, as well as a few with my (now) husband; and she even offered to help him write his vows if he was having trouble!! Jayne did actually help to create custom vows out of the ones we wrote as well. Not only did she craft a gorgeous ceremony that had EVERYONE in tears, but it was inclusive of every important detail and person in our lives--our mothers, my son, and even my grandmother who was not able to attend our wedding.

I cannot express how many people came up to tell me how about beautiful, moving, and perfect our ceremony was that day. We did a ribbon ceremony, and no one had seen it before; but everyone loved it!! This was beyond all my expectations, as I have never seen an officiant do more than just iterate the typical vows and take all of 5 minutes to marry other couples. Our ceremony was about 20 minutes and was truly a representation of who we are as a couple and a family... After all of that, she left a gorgeous physical copy of our entire ceremony so that we will remember it forever.

Additionally, she mailed our marriage certificate without fail, and the official copy was waiting for us when we arrived home from our honeymoon. Thank you Jayne for everything!! We are so grateful and appreciative of everything!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with John at a wedding at the Grand Plaza St Pete Beach Fl. Ronnie and Rashida's wedding was just beautiful despite the fact that it could not take place on the beach as planned due to severe tornado warnings. John performed the ceremony with his caring charismatic ways with a little humor sending the newlyweds off with memories to warm their hearts for a lifetime. My photographs prove that warmth and professionalism. I always enjoy working with A Perfect Witness and would recommend this venue to anyone that is looking for an officiant.
