Janette was absolutely wonderful. We had a very specific ceremony in mind, with vows we wrote together and a cord ceremony. Janette not only was 100% flexible on the ceremony outline but helped us build a ceremony to tailor our needs. She met us near our house (which wasn't close to hers at all) and made everything so convenient. She was very responsive over email as well. I ended up throwing in an additional reading for my brother to say in the middle of the ceremony and Janette helped work it in flawlessly. She was professional through and through. I would highly recommend her for your wedding.Sent on 06/27/2019

a joy to work with
As a bride making wedding arrangements from Canada, it was really important that I found a professional officiant that I could connect with. From the beginning Janette was kind, helpful and responsive and offered many suggestions and tools to create a beautiful ceremony.Sent on 05/15/2019
Janette arrived early on the day of our small, intimate wedding. We didn't rehearse anything prior to the ceremony (our choice), only going over small details but we felt confident that she would deliver. And she did!! She had such a warm and calm presence that didn't go unnoticed by our guests. We had friends and family coming up to us after telling us how much they adored our officiant.
We are so grateful that Janette was part of our special day. She was a true professional with the biggest heart.

We are so happy we had Janette on our team as the officiant and florist for the big day! =D
Janette was just absolutely amazing and we are so glad we found her through our venue as a preferred vendor. Initially we were only considering her as our officiant but after our first meeting decided to hire her for her floral services as well. A month before the wedding we also decided to have her present for the dress rehearsal too.Sent on 05/16/2019
We appreciated the vow selection she had for us and loved how she further fine tuned it for us. She helped us write a few revisions to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. Her guidance through the whole process was so valuable. I really don't know how we could have done it on our own.
And the flowers! Wow! So incredibly beautiful! The centerpieces, boutonieres, bouquets, nosegay, flower basket, cake flowers and greens for our sweetheart table all turned out even better than I expected. Janette really went the extra mile to make it special. All the ivory roses were the perfect shade as it matched my dress and our table linens, just as I requested. And she did it all for less than what the other florists wanted to charge us. We were working with a smaller budget so that was an important factor for us.
It was such a great idea to have her there for the dress rehearsal since she was able to walk our wedding party and family through the ceremony. It was good to know the flow of it before the day of and actually get to practice it.
On top of all that, Janette sent me a few reminder emails and reassured during the final stressful weeks leading up to the big day. I'm so glad we had her on our team and will definitely miss working with her. We really couldn't have pulled it off such a beautiful ceremony and reception without her.
Thank you so much Janette! We are so grateful for helping us with our special day! Your gentle touch made it even more memorable.
