Weddings by Janine offers a range of wedding ceremonies.

I am a wedding officiant with over a decade of experience located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, yet I love to travel to you. What sets my ceremonies apart is that I am dedicated to ensuring that the ceremony represents the personality and spiritual/religious preferences of the couple and families. As a poet, I always deliver ceremonies with endearing and beautiful spiritual touches. This is my passion!

I am committed to incorporating your love story into the ceremony script. I have both traditional and spiritual options for the pledge, vows and opening and closing parts of the ceremony. If you like, a few poems and definitions of love that speak to the couple's relationship can also be included. Regardless of your background or beliefs, I am honored to officiate your wedding under the banner of love. LGBTQIA+ of course!

We loved Janine!

Janine helped make our ceremony unique and so special. She is very down to earth and caring. She is a poet and had some really beautiful suggestions for part of the reading where I was stuck, before our vows. She's a talented writer. Our event felt like an experience not an event. Thank you Janine!

Absolutely Perfect!!

Wow …we absolutely loved how Janine performed our ceremony!!! The ceremony was so endearing and so beautiful. We knew from our meeting and phone conversations that she would create a sense of calm. Besides the personalized touches that told a bit about our love story, we loved that she had helped us remember funny moments from when we first met so she could include those in the ceremony script. Getting our guests to laugh was just the best! She took the time to get to know us and make our day extraordinary! I highly recommend her.❤️

Reliable, courteous, professional officiant

Janine was extremely professional and thoughtful as our wedding officiant. She reviewed all of the vows with us well ahead of our wedding so that if we wanted to make changes we could without a last minute panic. Planning a wedding can be so stressful and to have such an important piece of the puzzle on top of things was a huge relief. Thank you Janine!!!
