Such a Delight

Joyce was a dream to have officiate our wedding. She was on top of the rehearsal to make sure everyone knew what they were to be doing. She made sure to communicate with us the entire time before the wedding as well. She even made us a book of our ceremony as a memory. I would recommend her over and over again.

Joyce is a Gem

Joyce is exactly who you will want to officiate your marriage. She made us WANT to celebrate our marriage. I'm sure that sounds strange, but as we met with her to talk through our journey (which included a Covid-canceled wedding from March 2020 and the addition of a toddler to the mix!), she
articulated all the beautiful moments and symbolism that go into a ceremony. It reminded us that the wedding wasn't just a big planning item to check off on your to-do list (speaking to my fellow Type A Brides out there!), but it's a true celebration of a meaningful and beautiful life event.
Joyce came highly recommended to us from Stone Manor Country Club. We planned our small wedding in just 2 months, and we were fairly clueless about what we wanted. All we knew was that it was important for us to feel at ease with our officiant (we didn't want to be lectured or made to sit silently while someone rambled off Bible verses to us). Joyce is SO warm and welcoming, and she has a wicked sense of humor. She comes prepared with helpful materials and to-do lists (which I loved!), and everything can be tailored to your own desires.
I distinctly remember leaving our meeting with her and thinking, "Yes! This is EXACTLY who we need." After meeting her, I felt so excited about our marriage and that we were finally able to celebrate us.
She also wore the most amazing, gorgeous shoes to our ceremony :) :) :). They look wonderful in our wedding photos!
