Taylor Lee · Getting married on 02/10/2022
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.

Joann is by far the sweetest woman we've ever met! Even my mom said so! She is very professional and she put together a beautiful and wonderful ceremony for me and my husband. Even though I feel like we didn't give her much lol (we're both shy people) but with the questions she has you fill out she got the gist of our relationship! She is helpful and knows what to say or do! Book her, you won't regret it! :)Sent on 08/28/2020

Natalia Tarnovsky · Married on 03/14/2020
I’m not sure if amazing is even the right word to describe how Joann is. She is beyond that. Her words at our ceremony were so heart touching and really hit our hearts. She and I hit it off from the very beginning. During our time together she has always made us feel like she was a friend and not someone who we hired to say a few words at our wedding. She really got into the event and has an amazing talent to say just the right words. She has an amazing beautiful heart we got to know along our journey and that was given to us even more on our day.Sent on 03/21/2020
Hiring Joann not only will you have the most beautiful words said, she will take the time to get to know YOU and who you are so your day is beautiful. Thank you Joann. ❤️ Your words will NEVER be forgotten.
