Joan Lane was our officiant. She was on time, dressed appropriately and conducted the ceremony in a professional and reverent manor. I highly recommend her.Sent on 03/02/2021

The most amazing officiant.
My husband and I have been trying all of 2020 to get married courthouse style but because of COVID-19, we had a lot of date changes and challenges. We first met with Joann in May for our couples meeting. Joann asked us a couple of questions about our relationship and sent us some homework to do so that she could write a personalized ceremony just for us! My husband and I are non-religious so we just wanted a simple spiritual ceremony and she REALLY delivered. Joann offered to help us both write our vows individually and once we were done with them she printed them on cute cards so that we didn't have to memorize our vows for the ceremony. Because of COVID we weren't able to do our ceremony in the park or beach and we didn't want to spend money on a venue so Joann and her husband graciously offered their home and beautiful back yard to us. We finally got married on October 26, 2020. Joann was so quick to respond to emails and phone calls, her and her husband went above and beyond for us! She set up her back yard with chairs for our friends with halloween treats, pumpkins and decor, pumpkin poop snacks, professionally made sugar cookies with our last name on them, a tv in the yard so that we could Zoom call our family (all from Missouri), a floor microphone, a champagne toast, and a bubble machine above where we stood. We paid for an officiant but she made the day truly special for us. I don't know how to thank her enough. She made our small ceremony so magical, she truly cared about our well being and what we wanted. Joann even allowed our 92lb dog to join our ceremony as a guest. We are so glad that we decided to hire Joann instead of doing the COVID courthouse wedding (no guests allowed, and an assigned witness). It was the small, intimate wedding I never knew I wanted. HIRE HER! THERE IS NO ONE BETTER!Sent on 10/27/2020
Ceremonies De Vie's reply:Taylor my dear, I've been officiating since 2006, and I feel close to many of my couples. When we met I saw more than a young girl who was anxious to get married. A strong, smart, beautiful young woman who waited 7 years to marry her high school sweetheart. Brian and I decided that day to be your "stand in" parents and to help make your wedding day warm and welcoming for you and your guests. We didn't do anything extraordinary. We just wanted you and Anthony to know we appreciate you and wanted you to know it.

After having to move our wedding, Joann was available to be our officiant and we couldn’t be happier. She was able to deliver a beautiful ceremony and had the kindest and sweetest words to describe our relationship. I would highly recommend her as an officiant!Sent on 06/09/2021
