The vows you exchange during your marriage ceremony are some of the most poignant and significant words you will ever speak in your lifetime; I help you focus on what you want your marriage ceremony to be and the tone you wish to convey.
With a passion for writing and public speaking and I believe that every marriage ceremony should be about the two people standing together to pledge their lives to one another.
With this philosophy in mind I founded Entwined Vows Ceremonies, and have the honor of officiating a diverse array of ceremonies. I am based in Gaithersburg, Maryland and perform marriage ceremonies in various venues in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC.
The goal as your officiant is to ensure that your ceremony is exactly your way; from content to context; it reflects you as individuals and as a couple.

Personal and Intimate
Searching for an officiant was one of the items that I dreaded in planning our wedding. We were unsure of the response we might receive when we informed the officiant that we were a same sex couple wanting a non-religious ceremony. Thankfully, our first search brought Joan into our lives and we couldn’t have been happier. From the moment that we met Joan we knew that she had to perform the ceremony. She is a genuine and caring person who wants to ensure that your wedding day is a memorable and personal experience for you as well as your guests. It has now been two months since the ceremony and we keep hearing from our guests how this ceremony was so intimate and personal. We owe it all to Joan who helped to guide us and coach us on how the ceremony should flow. If you are looking for a wonderful person to play such a large role on your special day you cannot ask for a better individual than Joan. You can tell that she has a true passion for what she does.

I cannot express enough how great she was, from all the planning to the final day she made our wedding ceremony perfect. She knew what to do so it was special to us and the ceremony was catered to who we are as a couple. When we re new our vows in ten years i hope she is still in service because we would love to use her again.

Wonderful experience with Joan!
My husband and I couldn’t be happier about having Joan as the officiant at our wedding. We several traditions we wanted to include in our ceremony but didn’t know exactly how we wanted it structured. Joan day down with us and really helped us creat an amazing ceremony. She is so responsive and extremely helpful. We really enjoyed working with Joan. We are happy to recommend her to any and all who ask us about our officiant. Joan did such an amazing job with our ceremony. We are so greatful for the wonderful memories.
