About Jillian Buckley Wedding Officiant

Love in the Time of COVID: I live right near Prospect Park so contact me for pay-what-you-can pre-scripted elopements in Prospect Park. Last minute inquiries welcome! Let's still celebrate love in dark times!

Before becoming ordained in the Universal Life Church in 2012, I worked as a writer/editor, teacher, and labor support doula. My experience as a doula immediately informed my new life as a marriage celebrant, and I strive to bring the same calm and good-humored presence to the planning of your wedding ceremony that I brought into the labor and delivery room. I'm here to help you take a deep breath about all the logistics, and stay centered in the love and committment that brought you, not just to this monumental day, but also to your ongoing and future life together.

My experience as a writer and editor allows me to bring together your reflections on your relationship with those of your loved ones to craft a personalized wedding ceremony that gets at the heart of what you mean to one another and what marriage means to the two of you.

I also recently completed a Master's in Social Work and and am working towards becoming a licensed couples therapist. I'll soon begin offering premarital counseling sessions, so stay tuned for that and let me know if you'd be interested in a discounted pilot premarital counseling rate.


Services Offered
I write personalized ceremony scripts, working with you to identify ceremony elements and rituals that have meaning for you. There is also the option of having me interview family and friends, whom I send a series of questions, and then have a bit of back and forth to tease out the anecdotes and details that capture the heart of your relationship: the light & sweet, the deeply felt, and the comical. I love to work with couples to capture a tone that matches their personalities, bringing forward the honesty, humor, and sincerity that goes into not just a wedding, but a relationship and marriage. I primarily perform non-denominational ceremonies, but am more than happy to include religious rituals, passages, and songs to make your wedding deeply meaningful to you and your loved ones.

    So glad we went with Jillian!

    We chose Jillian when planning our October 2020 wedding, before COVID arrived. Jillian was so easy to work with, very responsive, and helped us create the ceremony we wanted. She was incredibly flexible as the uncertainty of COVID and easily adapted to the change of plans. Jillian really thoughtfully wrote our entire ceremony, tailoring it to both of our interests and weaving in elements from our family, friends, and cultural traditions. She guided us through the process gently and skillfully. We are so glad we chose Jillian and highly recommend!

    Great officiant!

    Jillian was responsive and easy to work with for our virtual zoom wedding! You could tell she finds joy in this job and truly cared about learning about us so she could customize things for us, even over zoom

    Jillian is a wonderfully beautiful officiant who is communicative, creative, and down-to-earth. Any time I'm unable to officiate a wedding for a couple, I refer them to Jillian who I know will take wonderful care with their ceremony.
