A lovely wedding ceremony!
Janet Shortall was the only person we considered to preside over our wedding ceremony. She asked both of us to respond to a number of questions a few weeks in advance and had us send her written responses. She then wove our comments into the service. It was absolutely lovely and personal!

Our experience with Janet was marvelous
Janet was a wonderful officiant to work with. My wife and I were referred to Janet by a friend, and we are both very grateful to have had her officiate our wedding. She was both full of ideas about the details or our ceremony, but also very focused on making it personalized to our relationship and what we pictured for ourselves. She created a beautiful ceremony that touched both my wife and I as well as our family. I honestly cannot imagine our wedding without Janet performing the ceremony. She and her husband joined us for dinner afterwards at our invitation, and were marvelous company. I cannot recommend her services enough.

A Perfect Renewal of Vows
We exchanged vows in 1998, with Rev Shortall officiating a ceremony that we wrote. She accommodated all our wishes and helped bring a sense of calm to this stressful (er, joyous!) time in our lives’. An outdoor ceremony, August blooms, 90 guests, and perfect weather. A most memorable experience.
Flash forward 20-years with us being honored with Rev Shortall as she officiatied over our renewal of wedding vows. An equally joyous occassion, joined by our best friends who were also wed by Rev Shortall. With our children in attendance, and many of the same guests from 20-years ago, Rev Shortall officiated a beautiful ceremony.
We are in love with Rev Shortall, and hope she’s available in another twenty years!
