Elopement near the water

Janice was great! She was knowledgeable on locations and time to hold our elopement. She had many different options to choose how we wanted our ceremony to go and also had options for cake, wine and witnesses if we didn’t have our own. Two lights state park was a perfect location to me and my now husband. The ceremony went very smooth and she was very sweet. I highly recommend her services to everyone.

Professional and eloquent officiant wows crowd

I knew within 2 minutes of meeting Janice over the phone that she was the right officiant for our wedding. She has a sense of humor, offered a lot of compassion during the stressful vendor hire period, and clearly understood what we wanted out of a ceremony: a personalized speech with traditional but non-religious undertones. She offered to look over our handwritten vows and work with our family during a rehearsal ceremony. She even put up with my nervous, jokester dad (thank you, Janice!). At the end of our ceremony, many guests approached me and asked where I had found our officiant because she had blown everyone away. I will be recommending Janice's services to everyone I come across going forward.

Ocean side elopement

In need of a last minute elopement on a holiday weekend Janice was amazing! She not only pulled it off with very limited time but gave me the ability to customize our experience and made for a stress free wedding of my dreams! Thank you Janice!
