Amazing experience from beginning to end!
There are not enough kind words to describe Jody!
We originally had a Church wedding planned for September 19th 2020. Due to COVID we had to rethink the whole layout of our wedding a month before. We decided to have an intimate wedding celebration with only our closest family and friends.
Jody is a family friend of my husbands and when we decided to tie the knot in my parents’ backyard it was an easy decision. Jody was SO easy to work with and I truly felt like we were meant to have her officiate our wedding.
She met with us twice for 2 hours each so that we could fully get to know each other and she could better understand our love story. She was so easy to talk to and it made this whole process seamless. During the ceremony I truly feel she was able to tell our love story in a way that was so special and intimate that all our guests left with a better understanding of whom we are as a couple.
Jody was always available to answer any questions and even walked us through the process of obtaining the marriage license and where to mail everything. She also helped by giving us some Vow examples because it can be intimidating to sit down and write Vows without ever having heard any before.
She took who we are as a couple and magnified it in a way that we will cherish forever.
I am forever grateful for everything she did for us and I couldn’t recommend her enough!

July 2021 Wedding
I would like to preface this review by saying my (now) husband and I were together for nearly ten years before we got married. We wanted to find an officiant who could not only adequately convey our lengthy love story, but would actually take a second to get to know us before speaking on our behalf. Since neither of us are affiliated with a particular church, we went looking for an officiant that fit the bill. Full disclosure, we interviewed 3 other officiants before Jody and nearly ALL of them said that they would just send us a questionnaire to fill out and that would serve as the content for the ceremony. For some reason, that just didn’t sit right with me. (No hard feelings if that’s your thing!) I didn’t want to be married by a complete stranger, and I didn’t want the ceremony to feel like a bunch of random details a person got off of a single form about us. We wanted to find someone who would actually meet us, feel our energy, and then speak to that on our wedding day. I can happily say that Jody checked all our boxes!
Jody is easy to talk to, helpful, and insightful beyond belief. She is truly authentic, spiritual, and 100% honest with you at all times. We were lucky because we booked her 2 years in advance, which gave us a great deal of time to build a true friendship with her. She took the time to meet with us and get to know us. She gave us advice on things that weren’t even wedding related! She customizes ALL her ceremonies after meeting with you so that none of them are the exact same. She believes that each couple, and each story, is unique, and that is reflected in her work. She is a talented writer and speaker. She worked closely with us to design a hand-crafted ceremony that perfectly reflected who we are as people, both together and apart. She arrived promptly on the day of our wedding, and delivered the ceremony flawlessly. It left the whole audience in tears! I would 100% recommend Jody and her services to any couple that wants their voice to be heard on their wedding day.Sent on 07/23/2021
Rev. Jody Lotito Levine's reply:Casey, I have to thank you and Mike for setting the bar so high in terms of the intimacy and friendship you offered from the very beginning - and trusting me completely to tell your epic love story spanning so many years and precious moments. The 3 of us set out on a unique journey and fully showed up to what was asked of us every step of the way despite the twists and turns along our 2 year journey. And I will say, we hit it out of the park, I'm still smiling!

Excellence at it's best.
Wow there isn't enough words to describe how happy and fortunate we were to have Reverend Jody officiate our wedding. She was very easy to get a hold on and responded to my emails emediately. She took the time to get to know us on a deeper level and reflect that on her writing. Our guest were impressed by the vows and she had some humor to it to keep them laughing. We highly recommend Reverend Jody and her services.Sent on 06/14/2021
