    Kind, Professional, Gifted

    Right from the first meeting, Jo got to know us personally and made us feel comfortable and confident. All throughout the planning we found her so helpful with guidance, ideas, suggestions and attention to detail. Each meeting, email, call or text was thoughtful, caring and productive. Jo really helped reduce our stress with her vast experience, calm demeanor and professionalism.

    Since our wedding day, we have heard numerous compliments about our ceremony, specifically about how beautiful the flow, wording and delivery of the ceremony was. In truth, one Sister in Law added that it was the most beautiful ceremony that she had ever seen. From the beginning; our goal was to create a personal, warm ceremony and that is precisely what we got with Jo. We also greatly appreciated her professionalism towards other vendors which contributed to an overall smooth and seamless wedding weekend.

    I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of amazing officient. We were so lucky to have her!

    Jo made our ceremony and day so special!

    Working with Jo was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. She is so wonderful at what she does, and helped to create a custom ceremony that was personal to us. Every single person at the reception afterwards mentioned how amazing they felt that the ceremony was, and we owe that to Jo. We are so lucky to have had her for our big day!
