About Custom Weddings by Rev. Joanna Lubkin, UU & Interfaith Minister

Raised in Judaism and ordained a Unitarian Universalist minister, I love co-creating ceremonies that are personal, meaningful, and joyous. I celebrate all kinds of love and all kinds of religious (and non-religious) backgrounds -- interfaith, pluralistic, and off-beat ceremonies are my wheelhouse. Be it a big church service or intimate backyard ceremony, your wedding will be an authentic reflection of you and your love.

    Thoughtful, flexible, and creative

    Joanna did an incredible job officiating our wedding - she gave us lots of suggestions and worked with us over the phone, via Google Docs, and in person to create a unique and personalized ceremony. She was patient and supportive throughout the process and was very detail oriented and dedicated to crafting a meaningful experience not only with the actual ceremony but with the planning and rehearsal as well.

    Jo is the best officiant ever!!

    Would highly recommend Jo for any ceremony. She had such a calming energy that helped us stay centered through all the chaos that led up to and continued through our wedding! She listened deeply as we shared tales of living together and what our relationship meant to each other, and designed a ceremony that really, truly felt like us. Jo is the perfect combination of professional and organized, mixed with fun and light-hearted. She'll never let forget how important your day is, while also never letting you take it TOO seriously.

    Full disclosure, Joanna and I have been very close friends for a very long time and it was never a question that I would ask her to officiate. But beyond the personal connection, I don't think she could have done a better job. Joanna worked with us closely to personalize our ceremony, making it possible for us to omit many of the traditional ceremony elements and basically build a personalized ceremony from scratch. She was well prepared in our meetings with lots of resources, including choices of beautiful texts for various parts of the ceremony. She did her research on the state laws to make sure the legal documents went smoothly for her first Georgia wedding. At the rehearsal, she had a specific plan that got the wedding party comfortable and confident about what we were doing. She was able to foresee small issues that we never would have thought of (like resisting the urge to turn and face her, which would have put our backs to the guests).

    But Joanna's experience showed the most during the ceremony itself. Her speaking voice was very clear, and she went at just the right pace so that we could take in the whole thing without it dragging on. She coordinated all of the narrative and physical elements of the ceremony smoothly, without any trace of a hitch. She was warm and celebratory, and the ceremony was sprinkled with her personality and humor. Joanna gave us exactly the wedding we wanted.

    My close friendship with Joanna made it truly special to have her officiate our wedding. But even if this wasn't a factor, based solely on what she did for us throughout the process and during the ceremony, we would have been lucky to have her perform the wedding. During the reception and since, the most common comment we've heard from guests was, "that ceremony was so beautiful." If you're getting married, I couldn't recommend Joanna any more strongly as the person to perform your ceremony.
