Amazing Officiant!

Joanna officiated our wedding on October 7th, 2023 and I could not say enough good things about her! From the beginning, she replied quickly and was always willing to answer questions. She even answered my first email when she was on vacation! Joanna crafted a beautiful ceremony for my wife and I and let us read through and make any changes we wanted. She made sure to take a thorough history of our relationship and met with us over zoom before starting her process. We asked for a non-religious, sweet ceremony with a dash of humor and she exceeded our expectations! Joanna speaks very eloquently, she is clearly a very talented public speaker and writer. She was professional throughout our entire planning process and continues to be of guidance even after our wedding. She took care of all of the paperwork afterwards, and gave us instructions on how to obtain our marriage license before the ceremony took place. Joanna is the sweetest, we would 1000% recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding officiant for their special day!

Joanna was so helpful and supportive.

My wife and I got eloped near the Shenandoah mountains. Joanna surprised us with a cake she made, a bottle of champagne, and a personalized card. She also helped us take our wedding photos which came out great. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to officiate our wedding. Would 100% recommend Married By Miller.

Incredible custom ceremony that made everyone laugh and cry

Married by Miller set the tone for our wedding with the most incredible, personal, custom ceremony that took into account the traditions that mattered to us and left out everything else. It so far surpassed any of our expectations, and made our guests laugh and cry. She is clearly deeply passionate about her work, and is incredibly knowledgeable and prepared, asking thoughtful questions throughout the process and providing indispensable wisdom and advice. We felt so at ease working with her at every step of the way.
