Personal Ceremony Full of Joy
Where to start! Ginger has been amazing throughout the process of preparing our ceremony and it was a pleasure getting to know her. She was extremely accommodating when officiating our last-minute wedding and made adjustments to allow for translation by a friend for our bilingual families. She chose a very contemporary and appropriate wording, which she provided us with in writing before the ceremony and incorporated some changes in based on our preferences. Ginger truly made our ceremony special & it feels like we have known her for much longer! She was highly responsive and professional throughout the process, was well-organized, always on time (for our pre-meeting and on the day of), and has been in touch with friends and family before the ceremony to make everything as smooth as possible. If you are looking for a personal experience, I can highly recommend working with Joyful Day Ceremonies!Sent on 09/09/2019
Ginger, thank you SO MUCH for bringing your joyful personality, guidance, and kindness to our wedding!
Joyful Day Ceremonies's reply:Hannah, you are very welcome! You and Harris were kind, generous and thoughtful partners in creating your ceremony. I was impressed by your concern for the well-being of your friends and family as well as by your genuine respect for one another. And what a beautiful day! I enjoyed “co-officiating” with Alma, too, as she translated your ceremony into German. Thank you for choosing me as your officiant. It was both a privilege and a joy! Warm regards to you and to Harris, Ginger

I highly recommend Virginia to anyone looking for an officiant! Her calm and radiant personality really is one of the many reasons I chose her. Our ceremony was filled with tears and laughter and everyone loved the hand bonding ritual with our children. It was truly a unique and heartfelt. I can’t thank Virginia enough!Sent on 09/06/2019
