Our Wedding Was Perfect, Thanks to Jessica!
My husband and I were so lucky to have found such an amazing wedding officiant! Jessica provided strong attention to detail when planning and customizing our wedding ceremony. It was a process we never thought we would get to be involved in, but we are happy she gave us the option to make our ceremony fit who we are as a couple.Sent on 09/09/2019
On the day of, she showed up ready to help and pull off an organized and memorable ceremony. During this time, she made sure the musicians and door attendants were fully aware of their responsibilities and was even there to provide words of encouragement while I was getting ready. She was also the person that saved the day when she calmed my stress and fixed the zipper on my dress when my Mother and Aunt were having complications. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we are so happy with our choice to have Jessica as our Officiant.
We highly recommend her to anyone looking for an wedding officiant!
Premier Wedding Pastors JAX's reply:Thank you so much for all of your kind words, Lauren! It was a joy to work with you and Corey to create the ceremony of your dreams. I totally forgot about the zipper moment but I'm glad I was at the right place at the right time ;). I wish you both the best and thank you again for your review!

My husband and I used Pastor Jessica's "Ceremony Design Only" package to prepare for our destination wedding in Italy. We had a family friend officiate the ceremony but he needed some extra support since he had never officiated a wedding before. Pastor Jessica met with us and our officiant to learn about our hopes and dreams for the ceremony. She then sent us an initial design using GoogleDocs and we went back and forth making edits until it was exactly what we wanted. She then met one on one with our officiant and offered him tips and coaching on how to lead our rehearsal and ceremony. The day of the wedding was absolutely perfect and we were so happy we used Jessica. Our family friend sounded so professional and it felt so wonderful to have a family friend do our ceremony with such comfort and ease and with SUCH MEANING! Jessica really is a miracle worker, I was a little nervous before because I wasn’t sure how we were going to portray our relationship and we really needed help writing our own vows, she did an amazing job in every aspect and is so sweet too!Sent on 06/10/2019

Hands down incredible
PASTOR JESSICA IS PHENOMENAL! We cannot thank Pastor Jessica enough for officiating our wedding. Not only did she perform the ceremony flawlessly, she also took time to get to know us and personalize our special day. She sincerely cares about her clients! 10 out of 10 all day, every day!Sent on 09/09/2019
She worked with us and helped us customize every piece of our ceremony. She has countless booklets and options from religious to non-religious available for couples to customize and make their ceremony one of a kind.
She is also incredibly organized. It helped take a lot of stress out if the wedding planning and coordinating. She helped run our rehearsal, and we felt completely confident in her ability to officiate our wedding smoothly. I couldn't recommend a better officiant. She made our day so special. We did a pre-ceremony prayer, which was perfect for us. We were able to clear our heads before our ceremony so that we could just focus on each other.
Hands down, the best! She takes the time to get to know her couples, is always a text or call away, is willing to help with pre-marriage counseling, gives amazing advice, and is a calming wave in the craziness on a big day.
Premier Wedding Pastors JAX's reply:Thank you so much for placing your confidence in me, Marissa! A couple's wedding day is so precious and I was honored that you would entrust me with your big moment. It was a beautiful ceremony and I wish you and Greg all the best!
