    Came through at the last minute!

    We had hired someone that was ordained by the Universal Life Church without realizing that anyone can do that, even without training. About a month before our ceremony, that person stopped responding. I had to start searching for a new person, but we didn't want a religious ceremony.

    Janis was available & willing to do the ceremony the way we wanted it. She helped us figure out the processional to include our parents who were divorced and remarried. Best of all, I could reach her anytime I wanted and she was willing for us choose things the way we wanted. I never heard back from the first officiant!

    Great job!

    Janis did a great job - she walked us through a wide range of choices about what to include in the ceremony during the planning sessions, then delivered a very pleasant ceremony that worked out just the way we had hoped, complete with the vows we wrote ourselves.

    Creative Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you so much - these kind of responses are why I love doing ceremonies. I am thrilled when people are happy!

    Halloween Wedding

    Janis was very flexible with us and assisted us with designing a ceremony that fit us as a couple. She even went as far as to participate and dress for our Halloween Costume Wedding. She did a very nice and professional job. Thanks
