COVID-19 UPDATE: Yes, I am still officiating weddings during COVID-19! We'll work together to figure out how to safely but sweetly celebrate your wedding, whether in a distanced outdoor ceremony or streaming to your loved ones online. I'm grateful that years of working with Zoom have prepared me to add tech skills to my wedding officiating just for this moment.
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.

A wonderful, life-affirming experience & ceremony!
Joanna saved our wedding from COVID! She will work with you to make something beautiful and memorable during this time!Sent on 08/16/2020
Back in January we hired Joanna to officiate our May 30th wedding – she seemed like the perfect choice to help us realize our vision of a small intimate ceremony with immediate family members. When COVID-19 hit, we considered postponing but decided we wanted to celebrate our love and commitment despite the challenges. Joanna supported us 100% of the way and made us feel comfortable with and excited about our decision. She worked with us collaboratively with grace and compassion to plan an event that felt unique and special – and that we’ll remember with joy for the rest of our lives! Joanna was open to many different possibilities, but we ended up deciding to have the wedding with Joanna in our living room and broadcasting it virtually to our family. In addition to making this amazing thing happen in a time that feels out of control, Joanna also made the thing itself so meaningful – taking the pieces of the ceremony we chose, as well as the pieces of our relationship we shared with her, and blending them together in a smooth, seamless way that made the ceremony itself flow naturally despite our considerable nerves. If you’re on the fence about a quarantine wedding, or not quite sure how it will or could work, we highly recommend Reverend Jo and her wedding-saving awesomeness!

Great Officiant, Memorable Wedding Ceremony
From our first meeting, Joanna was calm, approachable, and supportive of all our ideas and wishes for the ceremony. She helped us craft a small ceremony that showcased our devotion to each other, while also providing space for our family members to participate in the program. She was the perfect officiant for our wedding.Sent on 08/25/2019

A wonderful person and minister!
We could not have had a better experience with Joanna as our wedding ceremony minister at the Arlington Street Church. She was tremendously thoughtful, supportive, and responsive throughout our planning process. She was a true pleasure to work with, and she helped us develop a ceremony that felt personal and meaningful to us. We recommend her very highly!Sent on 07/22/2019
