We first met Jessica at my friends wedding, and we immediately knew that we had to ask her to officiate our wedding! The planning process was incredibly stress free, which was even more impressive as we had to plan our wedding over email (300 miles away, eek!). Jessica listened to everything we wanted in our ceremony, and when it got to the big day we were blown away with how beautiful the ceremony was. We received so many positive comments from guests about how personal and lovely the whole ceremony was. My husband and I would recommend Jessica to everyone!

We had a very hard time finding the right officiant for our wedding. We were running short on time and everyone seemed to be booked or just didn't fit our vision for our wedding. We stumbled across Jessica's website and she happened to be open for the day of our wedding. So we met with her and my husband and I instantly fell in love with her. She had so many ideas plus reminded us of all the small details we hadn't thought of. On the day of our wedding she definitely created the vision we wanted. All our family and friends loved the ceremony she helped create and also her as a person. I highly recomend her for your wedding! Thank you again Jessica!!!

I have DJed countless Wedding Ceremonies which Carissa Officiated. She is just incredible!! You will love her awesome personality and the creative ceremony which she will create for you on your Wedding Day!

Carissa Ceremonies are great to work with! Beautiful ceremonies!

Jessica is absolutely one of those people you want to have share your special day with you. She truly listens to her clients, makes them feel completely at ease and gets excited about your wedding day. A true professional, caring and sweet person....you can't go wrong with having her as your wedding officiant!

From a "fellow vendor" perspective, Jessica Rowell from Carissa Ceremonies couldn't be easier to work with...but that's really not the most important thing about a wedding ceremony! What matters far more is the care she puts into each couple's big day--she makes the ceremony personal and poignant, funny and relaxed. Each couple is unique, and so are all of Jessica's ceremonies. In short, she's great!

Rev. Jessica Rowell is one of the best wedding officiants in the Capital District. She is warm, passionate about what she does, and creates ceremonies that are beautiful, meaningful and memorable.
