    The perfect small ceremony

    We had planned a larger, international ceremony in June 2020. We had to postpone for multitude of reasons, but we still wanted to get married in 2020. The courthouse was booked out for months and we had a mild panic cause we were trying to plan only 2 weeks out from the new wedding date. Jill was recommended to us by another officiant and I'm so happy that happened! Jill was very responsive over email and her getting to know us chat was really fun and got deeper than expected. She worked all these little details from that chat into our short ceremony which was so unexpected since we did request the basic elopement type ceremony. Additionally, we had a family emergency the week of the ceremony and she was very understanding and flexible. We were definitely not the best couple in terms of organization or communication, but she kept us on track which was so vital. Also, she was a true expert in returning the license which is needed.

    We highly recommend Jill and if our postponed larger ceremony was in Chicago, we'd be hiring her again. I've described the day as perfect and Jill was a major part of that perfection.

    Jill made it so magical!

    Throughout our planning, Jill really took an invested interest in us and it showed in our ceremony. She customized everything to our love story and journey and truly made it so special. Her warm presence made it so easy to be open with her and in turn it made our ceremony more personable. I recommend Jill 100% for anyone!

    “I viewed her website and she seems like the perfect fit” “Everything looks great, we’d love to talk with her” and “The ceremony was beautiful.” These are just a few comments received from the couple, their parents and guests. When my client learned their officiant was unable to marry them (about 2 weeks before wedding day), I was tasked with finding not just any available officiant but the ‘right’ officiant. Jill immediately came to mind and she was happy to work with us within such a short timeframe. She produced a ceremony plan quickly and everything ran smoothly. From my first contact to the ceremony rehearsal and through to the end of the ceremony, Jill is personable and professional. It is with pleasure that I recommend her services.
