My name is Rev. Janet Dunn and I am very passionate about creating a wonderful, creative, exciting, and one of a kind ceremony. I am a professional that provides services for interfaith weddings, same-sex weddings, non-religious weddings, and elopements. I officiate in the Adirondacks of New York, Poconos of PA, and the Green Mountains of Vermont.
I am a lover of the ceremony, a passionate writer, spiritual seeker, a relationship coach and a professional storyteller.
I design the ceremony, run the rehearsal, officiate the ceremony, and solemnize the marriage (signing and returning the marriage license). I will be your guide and together we will weave a perfect ceremony for the two of you.
A wedding ceremony needs to reflect your special relationship and keep your guests engaged and excited. A wedding is one of the most important rites of passage of your lifetime. It is my intention to create a ceremony that is about the two of you. It holds the elements of love, remembrance, your love story, ritual, vows and whatever else you two would like. It is a co-creation and one that will be remembered always.
I became a certified Life-Cycle Celebrant in 2015 through The Celebrant Foundation and Institute, focusing on a wide spectrum of ceremonies especially for weddings. I have officiated hundreds of ceremonies.
Rev. Janet Dunn is happy to officiate full wedding ceremonies or elopements, destination weddings, and vow renewals.
Janet listens to what each couple wants in their ceremony. She does her absolute best to write it right. She incorporates words of gratitude, remembrances, rituals, love stories, readings, vows, blessings into the ceremony.
Janet is a yoga and meditation practitioner. She offers a day of the ceremony yoga and meditation class to help you relax and enjoy your day. She invites you to slow down, breathe and enjoy your beautiful wedding day.
Janet is also a certified coach and relationship coach. She helps couples establish boundaries, develop effective communication skills and create goals for their life together..

Janet was perfect. I sometimes dislike when people write reviews with the word 'perfect' but it's truly the most accurate way to describe her role in our wedding. She took the time to really get to know my fiance and I, which added such a special touch to our ceremony. I was completely at ease resting the responsibility of our ceremony in Janet's gentle, kind, sweet, and professional hands. Not only were my fiance and I blown away by the ceremony, but our guests were/still are(!) gushing about how beautiful it was! I would recommend Janet to absolutely ANYONE interested in having a very special wedding ceremony - she everything you could possibly need in an officiant and on top of that she is just an absolute joy to be around.Sent on 08/12/2019

Janet went above and beyond what we could have asked for from a celebrant. Throughout this process she stayed in communication and learned who we are as individuals and a couple. Janet was able to make the ceremony personal and made suggestions based on our vision. Janet’s ability to be present in each moment of the ceremony as well as keeping the guests a part of the ceremony is true skill. It was better than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Janet for making our day magical.Sent on 08/14/2019

Janet performed a beautiful ceremony for a couple recently at Owls Hoot Barn. It perfectly blended the vibe of the couple and the surrounding venue. She was extremely professional and pleasant to work with!
Janet is an incredible professional who does an amazing job at officiating her wedding ceremonies. She makes the ceremony personal to the couple, keeps it light + warm and is generally excellent at what she does. It's very obvious that her couples feel comfortable with her. I would (and do) recommend her to any of my bride's in need of an officiant!
From the moment I met Janet, I felt she embodied the spirit, calm and presence one would yearn to have on the most important day of their life. She is professional, kind, heartwarming and, has pizazz! What a great combination!
