    Completed our vision

    Jemelle did an amazing job at our wedding. She was professional, friendly, warm and compassionate. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant!

    A Master of Her Craft!

    I contacted Jemelle after reading all her exemplary reviews and it left me excited and anxious ( in a good way) to work with her. Not being from an extremely religious background, we were looking for an officiant to craft a ceremony full of love and not religion and I’m so happy we found her. She took time getting to know us through pre-marital counseling (highly recommended!!!) and took pieces of what she learned to carefully tell the story of our magic on our big day. Our wedding was only a month ago, but we’re still getting compliments on how meaningful Jemelle made our ceremony! Her prices were extremely reasonable and she was flexible with us and our schedules throughout the entire process. If you’re looking for an amazing officiant take time to get to know you and your partner and make your ceremony memorable and meaningful, look no further!
