    The ceremony was the best part of our wedding

    We can't say enough about Jo! She made our wedding day extra special and it was truly our favorite part of our day! We saw her marry our close friends and knew we had to have her for our own wedding. She is extremely kind, genuine, thoughtful, and caring. She takes the time to make sure your ceremony is specific and meaningful to you. She really captured our story and presented it in a special way. We received numerous compliments from our guests regarding our ceremony. Jo is wonderful to work with and very responsive. We are eternally grateful for her and wouldn't have wanted anyone else being such an integral part of our marriage. Thank you Jo!

    Perfect Ceremony!!

    My cousin recommended Jo to me, their wedding was lovely and I knew we needed her for our wedding!! She is such a great person, attentive to detail, and on top of everything! She was our one vendor who let us know what was needed and when, she kept us in line. Even our other vendors said that Jo was so on top of everything and they appreciated and loved it! Our ceremony was beautiful, she knows what she is doing, she handled all of the little details. From choreography, to readings, and everything in between, it was amazing. She’s also a great person to get to know. Jo forever has a special place in our hearts!! We can’t thank her enough!!
