    Phenomenal Officiant

    From start to finish Jemelle was the best officiant we could have chosen to marry us. Jemelle made sure we got everything we wanted, and she made sure to reach out to us regularly throughout the process to answer any questions we had. I am absolutely pleased with our experience with her. She was kind and patient, and I would highly recommend her to other couples.

    A wonderful experience!

    Jemelle is an incredible officiant. It was important to us to find someone who was LGBTQ+ friendly, who would be able to represent us with a ceremony that would reflect our (not-very-religious) views, and not be alienating to our (varied religions) family. My husband & I spoke with Jemelle on the phone & I knew she was exactly what we were looking for! We explained the sort of ceremony we were hoping for, and she truly delivered!! It was beautiful and moving! So many people came up to me after the wedding to say how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and specifically how much they enjoyed what Jemelle said. Most people just go "Oh what a lovely ceremony" but people were like "Where'd you find that officiant? Everything she said was so beautiful! What a joy!" Also, we didn't get a chance to meet with her before the rehearsal, but she immediately put us at ease. It really was wonderful working with her.

    I could gush forever and honestly, I can't recommend The Modern Officiant highly enough! She really helped make our wedding a beautiful experience.

    I highly recommend The Modern Officiant to all of my clients. She writes and performs the most beautiful intimate ceremonies. I have seen her bring her clients to tears with the way she crafts ceremonies. Jemelle puts her clients at ease with her calming demeanor and gives her clients a beautiful day to remember.
