Life Passages is the BEST!
Jen is SUCH a joy to have as a part of your big day. Working in the wedding industry has allowed me to witness more than a hundred ceremonies. Though each was wonderful in their own way – I have always been particularly moved by Jen’s warmth, sincerity, and ability to connect with her couples on a personal level. As soon as we were engaged, I knew we had to have Jen be a part of our elopement!Sent on 09/16/2019
Jen’s process was easy and fun. She took the time to meet with us, discussed what we wanted for our ceremony, and assisted us in preparing for the elopement. We could not be happier with the elopement script she prepared. It is truly of reflection of our journey together. We can’t wait to read it on our anniversary every year.
Thank you so much for all you do, Jen! We highly recommend you to be a part of any special day! :)
Life Passages, Jen Paul's reply:Thank you Monica! It's ALWAYS been a joy to work with you and being a part of your elopement meant the world to me! I'm so glad you were pleased and that your ceremony reflected you and Jonathan. It was so fun to have your pups as a part of your big day. And, I enjoyed connecting with your parents. Love this pic!

The perfect officiant!
Jen with Life Passages was our perfect officiant! My fiancé and I decided to elope in Arizona, and we found Jen! Not only did she communicate with us through email to perfect our ceremony, but she also video chatted with us so that she could get to know us on a personal level, which made our ceremony amazing. By the end of the whole experience, Jen felt like a personal friend and she made our wedding day perfect.Sent on 07/22/2019

Jen Made Our Special Day Breathtakingly Perfect!
My fiance and I had planned everything! Our small party was descending upon the Grand Canyon from Colorado for a destination wedding. The week prior to the trip, my sister - and our officiant - had an emergency situation come up that meant she could not perform our ceremony!! Oh no!Sent on 10/07/2019
Before canceling/rescheduling our ceremony, we decided to try finding a new officiant in Arizona. Within a few hours, we found Jen whom I immediately felt a great connection with. She was unfortunately booked for the date and time we had initially chosen; even so, she offered us several alternatives, even referring us to a friend whom she felt might be a good fit. We liked her so much that worked with our group to adjust our travel plans so that she could perform our ceremony.
It was one of the best decisions we have ever made!
Jen was super professional, and also deeply compassionate and connected. Stepping in at the last minute, and especially filling the shoes of a beloved family member, must've been stressful - not to mention squeezing us into her already booked schedule. If she was overwhelmed, she never showed it! My fiance and I were overwhelmed, and Jen went above and beyond to keep us calm and collected! We trusted her completely and that trust ushered us into a magical ceremony, full of synchronicity and special moments made possible with her love and grace.
Since returning home, people have asked us, "Well, how was it compared to what you had originally planned (i.e., without your sister)?" It's not a fair question. When our initial plans fell through, that path ended. Jen wasn't just an alternative, as another last-minute choice might've been. Instead she became part of our mission and purpose in getting married. She never tried to fill the shoes of the one not present, but she wasn't meant to. Now, even though I missed my sister, I KNOW that Jen was meant to perform our ceremony! My husband remarked, "It was amazing working with Jen, and we only a week to prepare; what might it have been like if we'd been working with her all along?"
Well, it worked out as it did for us, and we don't have regrets, thanks to Jen. With utmost confidence I can say that Jen made our special day breathtakingly perfect!
Thank you so much, Jen, for all you did for us! Tlazocamati!
Life Passages, Jen Paul's reply:Wow Drena - I'm so touched and yes, it was an unbelievably magical ceremony. So incredibly grateful that all worked out the way it did. The beautiful components that you and your husband included were very special for me to witness (your blessing and his benediction). Also, watching his parents offer a blessing and welcome you into the family as well as watching your brother offer a blessing and welcoming your husband into the family - priceless. What a glorious sunrise ceremony at the Grand Canyon indeed! Much love to you both
What a GREAT officiant! I've seen a lot of weddings as a violinist and I was really touched by her organization and very personal touch. Her presence and her voice is sweet and loving.
Jen Paul is a fantastic officiant. We're always excited to hear when clients have asked her on board for their Ceremony. In particular we really enjoy how much emphasis she puts on getting to know her clients personally and bringing "their story" into the Ceremony so all their guests can enjoy hearing some of their most heartfelt lifetime moments. Her demeanor is calm and wonderful and her speaking voice is strong and clear yet gentle. Perfect for weddings and special occasions of all kinds. We highly recommend Jen Paul and Life Passages.
Jen Paul and I worked together at a recent winter wedding at Thornagers in Flagstaff, Arizona. Her officiating style was incredibly genuine, loving, and personal. It was easy to tell that Jen really took the time getting to know the couple and conveyed that through her ceremonial style. I had a great time getting to know Jen and working with her. I will be recommending her to my future couples!
