    Thoughtful, Personal, Talented

    We are so lucky that we found Jo to officiate our wedding. From our first conversation and through the entire planning process Jo’s thoughtfulness and organization rang through. Over the months leading up to our wedding through an in-person meeting, calls, and emails she truly got to know us and the ceremony she crafted was a genuine representation of our love story and personalities. Jo brought many ceremony ideas to the table and helped us brainstorm the many directions that our ceremony could go. Ultimately she made sure that together we found a structure, tone and message that we were thrilled with.

    Jo’s experience, constant communication, and confidence put us at ease throughout the planning process and her steady hand at rehearsal allowed us to truly relax and enjoy the ceremony because we knew we were in good hands. For two people who do not enjoy being the center of attention this made all the difference in the world on our big day.

    That organization and effort clearly paid off as we heard from every guest we spoke to how much they loved the ceremony. Our guests were so impressed that Jo was able to make our ceremony so personal and capture to our story and personalities so accurately. We could not agree with them more, Jo did a fantastic job and we are so happy that she could be a part of our big day.

    Jo was a huge hit at our wedding!

    My husband and I didn't realize just how important the hiring of an officiant is until we started our search. They truly set the entire tone for the wedding. As started doing our research we became a bit overwhelmed as we met with/spoke to a couple that we knew just wouldn't be a good fit for us. When we found Jo, read her reviews we had a good feeling she would be our perfect match. But what really solidified our decision was when I went to meet her with my mom over a "quick" cup of coffee that turned into a half-day date! We instantly clicked. She felt like family to us immediately. The entire process was seamless as she was always one-step ahead, never leaving us waiting or wondering. The day-of could not have gone any better, as she wrote the most beautiful ceremony just for us, and we got SO many compliments on her as an officiant. Everyone had the same feedback- that it was the perfect ceremony in every way. She had a lot in her hands (Our wedding!! Our vows!!) and she truly carried herself with such grace. We wouldn't change a single thing. "Choosing" Jo was the BEST decision! We just adore her!
