Rev. Joyce is Wonderful!
My Fiance and I were so lucky to find Joyce Hilbery to Officiate our Wedding. She really took the time to get to know us as people, and made sure that our rehearsal and our special day went smoothly. Most importantly, Joyce made the day FUN for my husband and I (which is no small feat, considering how stressful weddings can be). Also, she was so kind to all of our friends and family, and made them really feel like they were part of our special day. Thank you Rev. Joyce Hilbery for everything!Sent on 05/28/2019

A Special Day Made Even More Special
Rev. Joyce Hilbery was our officiant for our recent wedding, and it simply would not have been the same without her. We planned our wedding from the other side of the world, and from the start she was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. She gave us lots of wonderful ideas for readings and ceremony add-ons to work with and was very receptive to our choices/preferences around wording which were important as we are a same-sex couple. She arrived promptly on the day of the ceremony, and made us all feel immediately at ease. She had great banter with the bridal party and really felt like one of the family. We appreciated her wit and sweetness during the ceremony itself, which ran smoothly and could not have gone better in all honesty. Recommend 100%.Sent on 08/23/2019

Highly recommend Joyce
My (now) husband and I had Joyce officiate our wedding, and we thought our ceremony was perfect. Joyce provided us with suggestions to help craft our ceremony, which was extremely helpful. We had a 'wine box ceremony' that Joyce encouraged us to include, and we are so glad we did. Our friends and family enjoyed the unique and romantic addition to our ceremony.Sent on 10/27/2018
Since our wedding was fairly small (we had 27 people in attendance, including our bridal and grooms parties of just a Matron of Honor and Best Man), Joyce told us that we did not necessarily need a rehearsal, and would save quite a bit of money by not having one. Joyce didn't have to tell us this (she LOST money by suggesting this) but her honesty was so appreciated and special. We did not have a rehearsal, and I think our ceremony went fairly smoothly.
I highly encourage you to reach out to Joyce if you are in need of an officiant!
