Planning a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic had many moments of uncertainty. Joan helped us through many moment of uncertainty and was willing to create the perfect wedding ceremony regardless of the ceremony changes we might of needed to make. Joan met with us various times to review our ceremony, she offered suggestions on what she thought would be best, and made sure the items that were important to us were included. Joan also ran our rehearsal which was fabulous, she really took the lead to ensure everyone felt comfortable and knew their role for the day. We received many compliments regarding our ceremony! It was a remarkable day and Joan made our ceremony a moment we will cherish forever. I highly recommend Joan for your wedding ceremony!Sent on 08/15/2020

Professional and Enjoyable
It's not easy planning a wedding during a worldwide pandemic but Joan was constantly present and always checking in to make sure we were taken care of and effectively planning. She made sure to e-mail us just to check in and to let us know that she is available for anything. During the ceremony, Joan would provide little gestures to the bride and groom to set ease on their nerves and provide some humor. With Joan's checkins throughout our entire experience as well as her patience throughout this process, we could not be happier with our choice in officiant. Thank you Joan for helping make this one of the best days of our lives.Sent on 08/13/2020

I can only imagine the stress of wedding planning during COVID and having to change your wedding date. You two handled it with ease and I love the COVID ring Kyle gave you on your original date. So glad to get to know you. You are such a great couple and I can't wait to see what the future lies ahead for you both. Stay in touch!!!
