    Joan is WONDERFUL in every way!

    We could not recommend Joan more! She made our elopement ceremony better and more special than we ever could have hoped for. We customized every aspect of it, and the resources she provided beforehand helped us immensely. She was so easy to contact with questions and so easy-going and so well-spoken at the ceremony. She filed our marriage license so quickly the following day and made sure to follow up with us with instructions as we were out of state and mailing the paperwork in for certified copies. All in all you should stop what you're doing right now and hire Joan to be your officiant, you will not regret it!

    Joan is amazing!

    Joan was kind, thoughtful, warm, and made everything seem so easy and just right. She the took time to get to know us in person and by asking insightful questions and beautifully weaved our love story into the wedding script.
    We were delighted with the outcome and will forever be grateful for all the extra work she did, as we got married during the pandemic.
    Joan - Please stay lovely and healthy, as we last saw you under that gorgeous cherry blossom tree for our nuptials.
    Dan & Gigi

    I had the pleasure to work with Joan this past weekend. Joan was very responsive to emails throughout the planning process, attended the walk thru to help guide the bride thru the logistics and delivered an incredibly seamless ceremony. I was most impressed with her cue sheet. As a planner, I love how prepared she was!
