My husband and I feel so incredibly lucky to have found Jackie. In the early stages of planning, we wanted a close friend or family member to officiate our wedding because we wanted it to feel personal. I'm so grateful we decided to hire a professional and even more grateful we met Jackie! From the first phone call all the way to the ceremony, we had felt as if we had known her for years, we were just that comfortable! The ceremony she wrote for us was beyond any expectation I could have had and we received so many compliments! For starters, I didn't even know a ceremony could be as interactive as the one she came up with. There were plenty of quotes to personalize it and I was able to add my own touches that Jackie put together flawlessly. Another reason we are over the moon for Jackie is because she is so inclusive. Selfishly, it didn't even come to mind that there might be officiants out there who wouldn't marry us because of who we love. We're "normal" so we didn't have to think about being judged. I've been able to see other weddings Jackie has done through social media and it makes me so happy to see her pure joy with all the couples she officiates for but I get a little extra teary eyed when I see how inclusive she is. We could not have hand picked a better officiant.Sent on 09/07/2018

No one else but Jackie!
Five stars does not seem like enough. Jackie is thoughtful, caring and organized. My rehearsal and wedding went so smoothly and it was all because of Jackie. In addition, she is so funny and sweet!! We cannot have pictured our day with anyone else but Jackie and cannot recommend her enough.Sent on 07/13/2019
I met Jackie while being a photographer for a wedding she officiated. Hearing Jackie as she married the two women, I instantly knew that Jackie put her heart and love into what she does. Fast forward a little more than a year later, I had the upmost pleasure of being able to be married by Jackie. To say our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her would be an understatement. Jackie is a wonderful woman with a huge heart, and passion for what she does that everyone should strive to have. I would highly recommend Jackie for your Wedding Officiant needs, whether or not is a big, small, intimate event, or special occasion!
One of the absolute best in Tahoe. Jackie puts so much passion and love into every single one of her ceremonies. She is so great to work with. Always so helpful and so connected to her clients. Extremely helpful to vendors as well. I am looking forward to working with her more in the future!
Above and beyond, both professionally and personally. Jackie loves what she does and it reflects in every wedding she is a part of! She takes the time to really get to know you and your significant other so she can ensure you are both reflected in the ceremony. Every ceremony is a magical combination of custom and classic.Truly the best of the best!
