My Husband and I were so lucky to have found Joan! She just officiated out Sept. 23 wedding and it was wonderful. We were looking for a person who would help us create a special ceremony but didn't want anything overtly religious. Joan met with us several times and asked us insightful questions and used our answers to make a wonderfully personal and heartfelt ceremony. She was open to our non-traditional ideas and helped us incorporate some traditional elements to make it as special for our friends and family as it was for us. We cannot thank Joan enough!

Working with Joan proved to be one of the best decisions we took regarding our small, intimate ceremony. She made sure to ask a lot of questions so she could make it a personalized experience. In fact, our ceremony was an extremely intimate event (just my fiancé, Joan and myself) but she made it feel so much more special than what we anticipated. You can see she enjoys what she does and goes above and beyond her duties. I encourage other couples to reach out to Joan for their wedding ceremonies, they will be very much delighted.

Couldn’t Have Asked For Better!
Joan was amazing and took time to get to know us and make our ceremony special. Highly recommend. Thanks so much for the memories Joan!
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!
