Jean took great care
Jean took great care in honoring my father at his memorial service. She spent time with several family members to compose the story of his life. She was flexible and caring throughout. Her process was unique to other celebrants I've worked with and I really appreciated how she works. She has a format to ensure she'll capture the bright spots and important stories. She told his story with sincerity and touched all of our hearts.Sent on 08/13/2020
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Jennifer, thank you for your heartfelt review. It was an honor and a pleasure working with you and other family members to create a meaningful and memorable ceremony for your father.

We had a beautiful ceremony that was customized personally for us!Sent on 09/05/2020
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Claire, it was truly a lovely ceremony that combined your cultures and beliefs in a natural setting. I was honored to be part of it.
Carol T. · Married on 06/12/2020
My sister had met Jean in the past, and found out that she was a celebrant. When my uncle died, we decided to meet with Jean. We liked that one of her goals was to deliver a memorial that would tell the story of his life. The service was so meaningful. My uncle had been very proud of his flying skill in the military, so we had two soldiers do the flag ceremony. With the presence of Jean and the military, it was so moving and was the best that it could be. Thank you Jean!Sent on 01/03/2020
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Carol, thank you for the high praises. It was a joy working with the two of you to create a celebration of life that honored your uncle's service and life. Jean
Amy T. · Married on 10/05/2019
Jean is the best!
We are so thankful we found Jean for our wedding! It wouldn't have been the same with anyone else.
After an initial meeting over coffee we each filled out a questionnaire for Jean to get a sense of our story and life. From these she crafted an extremely personal, intimate ceremony that we had full control over. Our guests raved about Jean and what a beautiful ceremony it was and one unlike most others they go to because it told our story. Everyone enjoyed the uniqueness of it.
Jean is down to earth, caring, and engaged. We highly recommend her!Sent on 10/24/2019
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Amy and Brooke, thank you for the complimentary review. It was such fun working with the two of you, telling your delightful and heartfelt story. Lucky, the dog was the best!! Jean
Karen C. · Married on 05/25/2019
Jean was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She captured the essence of us as a couple from the questionnaire and emails and all of our guests couldn’t believe that the wedding was the first time we had met, it was like she had known us for years. Thank you for all of your planning which made our trip to the US and our wedding just perfect!Sent on 07/30/2019
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Karen and Amanda, it was a fun adventure working with the two of you, corresponding internationally, to create a memorable wedding ceremony. When we met, I, too, felt like we had known each other for years. Thank you for the kind words.
Amanda H. · Married on 05/25/2019
Jean made our day so special
I cannot recommend Jean enough she was fantastic, she made our day so special. Jean really helped us to personalise our ceremony and she is a warm and welcoming person. we couldn't have asked for anyone better.Sent on 08/13/2019
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Amanda, it was an honor and a pleasure working with the two of you, internationally, yet. Thank you for your kind words.
Hannah · Married on 04/13/2019
Working with Jean was a fantastic experience. She met with us a year in advance, provided a detailed script, and was very patient with us in reviewing and finalizing our ceremony. Jean met us in Rocky Mountain National Park at 9:00 in the morning and led a beautiful ceremony. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.Sent on 05/30/2019
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Hannah and Joshua, thank you for the extraordinary review. It was a pleasure working with you and, in the end, an adventure. Little did we know that the setting was magical. All best wishes,
Melanie C. · Married on 02/18/2019
Jean was perfect for my husband's celebration of life
Jean was the celebrant at my husband's celebration of life. She spent plenty of time with my sister and me, listening to stories, asking great questions, and taking copious notes. At the ceremony, Jean checked in with the AV person and the guests who were sharing readings. She was professional, but also warm and welcoming. Several people asked how we knew Jean after the ceremony was over. I felt Jean captured Ben's essence and presented his story with the perfect balance of levity and grace. Thank you, Jean!Sent on 04/04/2019
Bayley D. · Married on 10/06/2018
Jean was amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married. She is LGBTQ friendly and she took the time to meet with me and my wife so she could get to know us and find out how WE would like the ceremony to go. She kept in touch all the way until the big day. She made us feel less stressed about the whole thing. Again Jean was amazing!Sent on 11/13/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Bayley and Rachel, getting to know the two of you and your story was delightful and your ceremony reflected your love for each other. All best wishes. Thank you.
Erica · Married on 09/29/2018
Beautiful and accommodating
Jean was such an amazing addition to our wedding team. She wrote an absolutely beautiful ceremony, and even though my husband and I ended up being pretty unprepared, she laughed it off with us.Sent on 11/06/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Erica, it was a pleasure working with you and performing your beautiful wedding ceremony. Colorado outdoor weddings always have a serendipitous element. Best wishes.
Shayne · Married on 08/18/2018
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Jean was. She is so warm and caring, and she delivers! All of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was, touching with a bit of fun. Not many a dry eye in the house. Jean's ability to craft a ceremony so personal and on the nose is remarkable, especially from only communicating through emails. SIMPLY AMAZING! Everything was beautiful and more than we could have hoped or expected!Sent on 09/05/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Shayne, it was so much fun working with the two of you to create a heart-felt and memorable ceremony. Your kind words are greatly appreciated.
Jessica · Married on 08/03/2018
Looking for an officiant that is responsive, considerate, warm, fun, and well... simply the best? Look no further. Jean truly does put an effort into making this experience heart-felt and true. She took the time to get to know us before customizing the vows. She gave us many options and worked with us to get us exactly the right ceremony. She has a calming demeanor which is helpful on such a momentous day. I am delighted she was the one we picked! Since we married privately, we will be having another ceremony with friends and family and we will definitely be asking Jean to assist us a second time. She is amazing! :)Sent on 09/21/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Jessica, officiating the ceremony for you and Robert had special meaning for me. Thank you for your kind words. I look forward to working with you, again.
Nancy · Married on 07/13/2018
Jean spoke at my dad's funeral. She did a great job memorializing him, his life and family.Sent on 08/11/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Nancy, it was an honor working with you and your family to celebrate your father's life. Thank you for your kind remarks.
Olivia · Married on 06/24/2018
Jean officiated our wedding a few weeks ago, and the entire experience could not have been more pleasant. From start to finish, Jean was warm, professional, and responsive. We were seeking a meaningful, personalized and formal ceremony without any religious tones, and Jean fully delivered. She started working with us nearly 9 months prior to our wedding, and spent hours crafting a meaningful and deeply personal ceremony for us. We were involved in every step of the process, emailing back and forth, and Jean was quick to respond to all of my questions and edits. Following the ceremony, numerous guests approached me, commenting that the ceremony was more beautiful and moving than any they had ever been to. We are so glad we found Jean and will recommend her to anyone planning on getting married in the area!Sent on 07/14/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Olivia, thank you so much for your genuine review. It was an honor working with you and Chris and being part of your beautiful and intimate ceremony. Knowing how much the guests enjoyed it, is meaningful to me, as well.
Vanessa · Married on 04/06/2018
Wow Jean was amazing from start to finish. Professional, flexible and friendly. Jean made the whole process as easy for us as possible, guiding us thru the preparations and then exceeding all our expectations on the Big Day, adding light humour as appropriate. My dad was so made up with the whole ceremony that at the end he got up and gave Jean the biggest cuddle.Sent on 04/13/2018
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Vanessa and Doug, thank you for your kind review. It was such a pleasure working with the two of you to craft your heartfelt and light-hearted ceremony and sharing it with your family and friends in the beautiful setting in Beaver Creek. All best wishes, Jean
Megan · Married on 08/19/2017
Jean crafted a very personal and touching wedding ceremony for us! It was really easy to work with her to make a ceremony that felt personal and she had great suggestions to make it easy for us to have the ceremony we wanted. Jean had us fill out a questionnaire to get to know our story and what we wanted and didn't want, and from that made a first draft of the ceremony that we then got to edit until we were all satisfied. She picked out lovely readings, etc, since we didn't have anything in mind. Jean was a wonderful presence during the ceremony and was very pleasant to have there. We got so many compliments on the ceremony. We would definitely recommend her!Sent on 09/03/2017
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Megan and Elliott, thank you for the lovely review. It was truly a pleasure working with you to create the beautiful and memorable ceremony. The highlight was including your parents as part of the ceremony.
Chelsea · Married on 08/11/2017
I cannot say enough good things about Jean! From the point of booking her she was always in constant contact making sure everything was done on time, which is great for the busy bride trying to keep up with each detail of the wedding day. The ceremony was absolutely wonderful! Everyone complimented us on how great she was and how she made the ceremony into our love story; it felt like a fairytale. She even dressed in our color palette to match our wedding theme. She made the ceremony even more memorable than I would have ever imagined. We can't thank her enough for helping us create these cherished moments and turn them into lifelong memories!
She even sent us a keepsake, beautifully printed copy of our wedding ceremony story. We are so sentimental that having a keepsake for us means more than you know. Thank you again so much for a wonderful wonderful union!Sent on 10/29/2017
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Chelsea and Chris, thank you for the glowing review and beautiful photos. It was a pleasure being part of your ceremony from beginning to end. Sapphire Point overlooking Lake Dillon at sunset was spectacular. Warm wishes, Jean
Rachel · Married on 07/12/2017
Jean was wonderful to work with, as well as authentic, compassionate and kind. We had little time to prepare a celebration of life for my husband but Jean lead us through beautifully. We were very fortunate to have found her.Sent on 12/11/2017
Blue Sky Celebrations's reply:Rachel, thank you for the the lovely testimonial. It was a privilege working with you and your family to create a most beautiful memorial to honor Denis' full and engaging life.
Robert · Married on 03/30/2017
Two people met us on a weekday afternoon, the wife who did the ceremony and the husband who took pictures. Went really well. Met them in a nice park close to where they lived. It was over in about 20 minutes. Was perfect for our situation.Sent on 04/16/2017
David · Married on 03/11/2017
Our ceremony was made monumentally more joyful and special thanks to the caring attention and recommendations Jean offered during the planning. We were coordinating complicated logistics and Jean did not let our stress tire her - she remained patient (very empathic!) and also continued to coax us along to ensure things were not rushed. We highly recommend Jean and are confident that if you choose to work with Jean Stracy, you too will be very pleased with your ceremony!Sent on 04/01/2017
Mark · Married on 09/24/2016
Jean is really easy to talk to and very open to many different types of ceremonies. She cares deeply making your ceremony truly personalized to your preferences. She will write a ceremony just for you and is willing to edit multiple times until it is exactly the way you want it. She showed up early to the wedding venue and was polite and courteous.Sent on 10/17/2016
Allissa · Married on 08/06/2016
We had an excellent experience with Blue Sky Celebrations! Jean was easy to work with and helped us stay on track, while being patient with our process. She had us complete separate questionnaires about our histories, which enabled her to compose a personal, touching ceremony that told our story as a couple. We received so many positive comments about the content of the ceremony--our friends and family are still talking about it! Jean is a professional who clearly takes pride in the quality of her work. We highly recommend her services and would hire her again in the future.Sent on 08/27/2016
