We studiously made a list of officiants we wanted to meet before choosing one. We met Jillian first and immediately knew we didn't have to look any further. She has a very kind, calming and thoughtful demeanor. Jillian listened to everything we wanted and asked us great questions about things we had not even thought of! She was very responsive throughout the process and created an excellent draft of the ceremony based on what we wanted before guiding us through until we had the customized ceremony we wanted that included all the right touches. My fiancé already has children and she helped us incorporate them into the ceremony in meaningful ways. When my grandfather passed away part way through the planning process she provided a thoughtful recommendation of how we could remember him in our ceremony. Jillian made the effort to attend our walkthrough because she had not been to that particular venue before which was appreciated. The evening before our wedding she expertly guided us through our rehearsal. Her sense of humor and patience was evident when dealing with my fiancé's notoriously joking/prankster brother and my excited family. On our wedding day time seemed to be moving very fast and while getting ready with my Mom and bridesmaids we started to get a little panicky about time and things being done....my Mom suddenly said "should I go get Jillian...she has a very calming influence" - the suggestion itself calmed us but I thought it spoke volumes that my Mom thought that and about what a genuine impact Jillian had on our day. So grateful to Jillian for helping us make our wedding dreams come true!

Jillian was excellent!
She first meet with us in a location of our choosing. As soon as we sat down with her we felt comfortable in her guiding us with our ceremony. Our wedding was a DIY outside BBQ. We had pretty much everything under control, except how to do a ceremony.
She was a huge help. She helped us incorporate my families religious views and our sarcastic funny side! She provided us with a 12 page guided ceremony paper they were able to piece down and make a quick 15 minute ceremony. All the while guiding us that our choices flowed together nicely.
She responses to emails/ calls very quickly.
She also checked in with us a month prior and gave us instructions on getting out marriage license. She checked in the week of our wedding and the night before. She was able to come early the day of and guide our very small wedding party since we chose not to do a rehearsal dinner.
Her easy going demeanor was just what we needed!
Once the ceremony was over she mailed in our marriage license right away and we got it less than 2 weeks later all complete.

Wow where to begin! From the first time we met we knew she was the officiant for us! Jillian made us feel so at ease, she took the worry out of the ceremony, she guided us but left the ultimate decisions to us. During the ceremony she was a calming Angel providing us with peaceful guidance again!
We would recommend her very highly to Family and Friends!
