    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.

    Hi Gina and Kyle - thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. 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!!!
    Much love,
    Joan
    Oh - thanks for the engraved keychain. It's a treasure!!!
