Congratulations on your upcoming ceremony and celebration! With Carissa Ceremonies, you have found just that “right fit” in an officiant for your day. With a philosophy that emphasizes your voice, your vision and your day, Ceremony Officiant Jessica Rowell works closely with each client bringing her warmth, creativity, professionalism, resourcefulness and dedication to the process of designing the ceremony of your dreams.
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!
Love her. She was amazing and would recommend her!!
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!!!
Thank you, Theresa! I really, really enjoyed getting to know both you and Mark and meeting your U.S. & Canadian families. It was such an honor standing with you on your wedding day and nothing makes me happier than to hear that you had the wedding of your dreams. Your Yaddo Gardens ceremony was simply picture-perfect beauty... not to mention how stunning you both looked. You had the BEST people surrounding you and I'm touched to hear all the positive feedback you received... that means beautiful memories of your day! I am so happy for you both and look forward to staying in touch! CONGRATULATIONS!!
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!
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!
