Best officiant... EVER.

Finding an officiant is arguably one of the most intimate decisions you can make during the wedding planning process. A lot of people look for a friend/family member to officiate so that the couple's essence is properly captured by someone who knows you both well.

When I say the Jody is the best officiant it is not an exaggeration. If you want to work with someone who deeply cares about catching you and your partner's relationship and articulating it into a beautifully told ceremony story, she is your person. Jody spends a session getting to know you and your partner so she can write your ceremony with specifics and tidbits about you as a couple. My husband and I spent a long time with Jody during our session being completely vulnerable and present about our relationship and why it is so meaningful for us and she could not have done a better job capturing it for our ceremony. So much so that when she sent over the first draft for us to review, I was in tears and did not want to change a thing about it (which says a lot because I am very picky)!

Another amazing thing about Jody was the day of our wedding. I was quite nervous before our ceremony as that moment is a big one!! Jody sat with me and calmed my nerves to the point where I was able to be completely present during our ceremony despite the pre-ceremony jitters and this is all thanks to Jody.

If you are looking for a kind, romantic, empathic, and understanding officiant who wants nothing more but for you and your partner to feel your love through the ceremony she writes, then she is your officiant.

Thank you so much, Jody, for the most perfect day. We got so many compliments on the ceremony from our friends and families.

Thank you Rev Jody!

Having Reverend Jody as our wedding officiant was one of the best decisions for our wedding ever. Rev Jody is genuinely a lovely person to sit down and talk and reflect together with, which is so important for an officiant leading the wedding ceremony between the two of us.

First, our meetings together were very pleasant as well as eye-opening. She is a very skilled listener, and the way she shared her thoughts with us made it very easy to understand and really click together.

Her ceremony speech was perfect. She took the time to understand our story and really personalized it for the two of us. Her writing style is elegant, and her speaking skills in front of the crowd has the perfect pacing and pauses to captivate everyone in the room. At the end of the ceremony, so many people came up to us and said the ceremony was so beautiful.

Most of all, it was so important to have someone that we both trusted and knew us by our side from the start to the end of the ceremony. She knew what to say to us in the moment, and even though our hands were shaking and our lips were actually quivering, she was there by our side and made sure everything went smoothly. You can tell that she honestly enjoys going through these moments together with couples like us. Thank you Jody!

Jody Is Amazing! Hire Her!

We hired Jody to officiate our wedding and couldn't be happier with our decision. We loved that she spent time getting to know us and our love story and relayed it perfectly on the day of! She also acted as a sounding board to both my husband and I, as we each wrote our own vows. Several guest complimented how warm and inviting she was during the ceremony and I would hire/work with Jody again in a heartbeat. Worth every penny!
