    The Best Choice

    "If we didn't already have an officiant, we would get her." That's an actual quote from one of our guests who got married two weeks after our ceremony. That tells of the awesomeness that is Jemelle. She got to know us (via counseling sessions) and sprinkled that knowledge throughout the nuptials. Her warmth, personality and words all lent themselves to the magic of the moment. I really can't say enough about her save - get her if you can!

    Incredible experience

    Exceptionally professional service and personal experience. Jemelle guided us through the entire process. She was always super responsive and knowledgeable. The service was absolutely beautiful and perfectly encapsulated the way we feel about making this commitment to each other. I highly recommend this service.

    The Modern Officiant's reply:

    I am so glad that you chose me to help make your union official. You are two very extraordinary people, and your daughters are incredibly lucky. Congratulations again and thank you for this wonderful review!

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.
