Perfect Wedding Ceremony
Jemelle was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She was super caring and fun to work with. Her ceremony was just perfect in her words as well as in timing. She took her time to get to know us and incorporate it into her speech. We would always recommend her!Sent on 10/06/2020

An Awesome Officiant!
We can't highly recommend her enough! She listened to our needs and provided us guidance and suggestions for what we wanted. We're not super traditional, so it was nice of someone to provide us a variety of options! When COVID hit and we had to postpone, she was flexible enough to provide us an intimate ceremony. Very excited to utilize her full services for the real ceremony next year!Sent on 10/17/2020

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.
