Picture yourself relaxing on your wedding day with your Maid of Honor, Bridesmaids, your Mother, and your soon to be Mother-in law in your bridal suite drinking mimosas, eating snacks, laughing and having a carefree day all while preparing to marry the love of your life. Your phone isn't ringing off the hook with vendors calling you wanting to know where to go or what to do. Your bridal party isn't running around putting out fires when they should be relaxing with you getting their hair and makeup done. And, you're not worried about a single thing. Does this sound like the perfect wedding day to you? Well, this was my wedding day and it was absolutely perfect because we hired Jillian as our day-of coordinator. My husband and I planned our wedding and had a blast doing so. But, we needed someone to bring all of our already planned details together for a smooth and seamless wedding day. One that we could relax through as we prepared to make a lifetime commitment to each other. Weeks before our wedding, Jillian began reaching out to all of our vendors and provided them with her contact info and detailed itineraries so every single person associated with our wedding knew exactly what was going on at any given moment. Jillian had color coordinated itineraries for our entire wedding party at the rehearsal. She made sure everyone knew exactly what to do and how to do it. She thought of things before they even happened and had a plan to overcome any hurdle. We have received compliments from nearly every single guest regarding how orchestrated our wedding was and we still cannot believe that absolutely NOTHING went wrong. When we first began discussing vendors, we were not sure we needed a day-of coordinator because we planned every detail and thought we could handle it. But, after reading Jillian's reviews and looking at her perfectly organized and informative website, we decided she was a necessity. Hiring Jillian was on of the smartest decisions we made!
As any couple, or woman would, I long dreamed about my wedding day and event.
It was a second marriage for both of us, so not a grand wedding, but intimate, special, timely and just PERFECT was our goal.
I have never met anyone so very in tuned to our needs, on OUR day!
Even though four ceremony and wedding lasted a relatively short period of time, Ms. Shaw was there- PRESENT- every minute.
I remember looking into her eyes during the vows and feeling her give to my husband and I the expression of love for the he and I to bond with, hearing her every word with grace and sincerity.
She actually made the difference in this entire wedding- she made this remarkable for us.
We have NO DOUBTS that her ability to perform any ceremony or special event is expertise and highly sought after.
We waneed to get married within the week and she was able to accommodate us, it was perfect!
Jillian was great! We live in NY, and she helped us build our ceremony without actually being there or seeing anything in person. Her communication and suggestions were excellent. The ceremony was easy and fun to design, and she provided plenty of photos and options to help us visualize things.
The set-up was truly my dream wedding, and the delivering of the ceremony by her was beautiful and touching. She was helpful, kind, and truly seemed invested in us as a couple.
We couldn't have asked for a better, more seamless experience!
Jillian helped us build the perfect ceremony! We knew we wanted to elope, but, did not want to compromise on having a special, intimate ceremony and Jillian made sure we were able to personalize and prepare for our big day. Her communication and responsiveness was incredible. We would recommend Her to anyone!
Jillian was wonderful to work with & she performed a lovely ceremony for us!
We are so thankful for you. She was willing to be available at the drop of the hat given she had no power and little internet service during Hurricane Irma. During our ceremony she added great verbiage to our already written vows that were great. Which showed she knew what needed to be said on top of our own thoughts to increase our moment of matrimony to next level.
Thank you so much for being there for us. You made our day XTRA special especially under the Hurricane trials we had.

She was amazing! We were so happy she was available on the spur of the moment and her experience shined with the extras she added to my unexperienced vows we chose.
Jillian was truly incredible. She was hired as the day of coordinator but acted as so much more. She made sure everything for our day was absolutely perfect and I cannot thank her enough.
It was the most awesome experience and Jillian made it so easy!! The best day of my life by far!!!
I have to say that even though our wedding small and simple on the beach. Jillian made it beautiful I was so surprised how nice it looked. She's very patient and kind and professional she gave us good advice and helped us make our day even more personalized. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for a wedding planner. I can only imagine what she would do with a big ceremony.
We were extremely happy with our officiant services, ceremony planning, sand ceremony, and overall experience!!
I cant say enough good things about Jillian. I found her business with a google search and went immediately to her website. It is user friendly and very thorough. She offers many options to choose from. Jillian always responded promptly to my questions either via email or by phone. Hands down she is awesome and I highly recommend her!
Jillian is awesome! She is very professional and her site is easy to navigate. It felt as if I had known her forever even though we had only spoke two times on the phone prior to our wedding day.
Jillian was awesome. Our wedding on the beach was perfect. She was very accommodating and we had no worries about the ceremony at all. She was professional yet fun. I think I may have even seen a tear ( or maybe that was a drip of sweat) bc it was REALLY HOT! She was perfect and I would highly recommend Ceremonies by the Sea for all beach weddings.
Thank you soooooooo much Jill we enjoyed it to the end
Julian was amazing and helpful and I am so happy to have had her marry us!
Very flexible and friendly on our special day
Jillian made our experience more than memorable. Planning the wedding from states away did not hinder the time frame we were looking at. Our wedding day was absolutely beautiful (despite the rain). Our family still speaks of her services and how great she was. she is very personable and would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a beach wedding.
Jillian is one of the most amazing and professional persons in the wedding business, So organized and creative, she made my wedding the best day of our lives. I'll recommend her to all my family, friends and everybody. Thank you Jilian!
Jillian, we are so grateful we found you to perform our ceremony! Both of us were touched by your kind heart and it made our special day everything we hoped for. Even though it rained that morning, your quick response to change locations last minute was excellent. Thank you from our heart. Matt and Mary God bless you!
I highly recommend Ceremonies by the Sea! Jillian was amazing! We had to change our plans pretty much last minute because of the weather, and Jillian was so wonderful during that stressful moment.
Jillian was awesome couldn't ask for a better wedding
Jillian did a wonderful job and we thoroughly enjoyed the time. Although it was a small gathering with just my wife and two of our kids and we are a bit of a zaney group, she joined in on the fun and we had a great time.
Ceremonies by the sea is a very professional company and Jillian was great to work with. She offered many ideas for a Nice and lovely service.
