    Incredible

    Jennifer is a beautiful person. Inside and out. She made our wedding planning/wedding day everything we could of dreamt. She’s so calm and relaxing. Being in her presence really brought my husband and I to a place of unimaginable love throughout the chaos that a wedding brings.

    We not only had the perfect woman to marry us. But we gained a great friend in the process.

    I would recommend Jennifer time and time again! ♥️

    Jennifer helped us achieve the mindful, present, happy and emotional wedding ceremony we dreaming of. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and to see your vision for your wedding ceremony. She is extremely sensitive and considerate to individual religions, lifestyles, visions or opinions. Beyond that she offers a wonderful experience of bonding as a couple before you commit your life to each other which is so important before your wedding day. This can be as extensive as you prefer as there are several sessions you can choose from if desired. As far as the ceremony, it really focuses on two unique people while still honoring traditions as the couple wishes. She is very flexible with her planning, but still takes the wheel to take the stress off of the couple. Our guests absolutely loved our ceremony and it really set the tone for so much love and gratitude throughout the rest of the wedding day.

    “That was the most beautiful wedding ceremony I’ve ever witnessed!” – This is what we heard from multiple guests at our intimate, DC wedding that Jennifer officiated. After working closely with her for nearly a year on crafting a ceremony that was mindful, emotional, and uniquely us, she delivered a beautiful script that felt fully representative of the relationship we have built. She was very communicative and thoughtful and even coordinated with us while we were in a long distance relationship across two continents. The ceremony itself was wonderfully and meticulously delivered, keeping everyone, including us, present and mindful and breathing (a true task when emotions are high). As a same-sex couple, we truly appreciated her sensitivity and understanding, as well as her willingness to break traditions and bring in aspects of other cultures, religions, and ideals into our ceremony. The attention, intention, and care that was put in helped create a moment that we and our guests will never forget. Jennifer went above and beyond and is now someone we consider a dear friend.
