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!Sent on 11/08/2019

Omg! From the first interaction with The Modern Officiant to the last, you can tell this is just not a job for her it’s her passion. She was very kind, accommodating, transparent, honest & lovable. It was an absolute honor to have her to participate in our wedding.Sent on 11/05/2019

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.
