Made our made magic
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jerri. I am still in awe 10 months later at the compliments our guest gave about our ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful and her energy and way of speaking left our guests in awe. So many guests have said we had the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. We were at The Elks at Bass Rocks which was a beautiful setting for a beautiful service. We even had a mix up at the post office with our marriage license and Jerri drove down from somewhere way up north to straighten it out.Sent on 06/08/2020

We were so happy to have Jerrie marry us! She was incredibly personable, accommodating, and easy to work with. Jerrie was responsive via email and Skype throughout the months leading up to our ceremony. She also provided us with a fantastic packet full of suggestions and ideas that ultimately helped us shape our dream wedding ceremony. The day of was beyond perfect - several guests said it was one of the best wedding ceremonies they had been to! Would highly recommend Jerrie!Sent on 12/16/2018

Our day was so special!
One of the best decisions I made for our wedding was hiring Rev. Jerrie Hildebrand. She made our day so special and beautiful. I have had so many people come up to me to say how beautiful the ceremony was, one of the most beautiful they had ever been to!! Working with Jerrie made everything seem so easy, she is kind and caring, patient and intuitive. I am so grateful I had Jerrie marry my husband and I! I wouldn't have had it any other way!Sent on 12/11/2018

Rev. Hildebrand was absolutely wonderful. We are from Florida and were traveling to Salem, MA for our wedding. She had a Skype call with us for everyone to get a feel if she was the right fit for our ceremony and a couple face to face meetings with us when we flew up for our marriage license. She was extremely helpful with making sure we knew Massachusetts marriage requirements thus us having to plan a separate trip for the license.Sent on 12/11/2018
She was very accommodating when planning our meetings and phone calls and worked with our schedules. She made the ceremony beautiful and personalized to us.
We can't thank her enough for making our wedding day that much more special.

I cannot recommend Ceremonies & Passages enough! Rev. Jerrie was an absolute delight to work with. It was important for us to find someone who made us feel comfortable, as we had a diverse group in attendance and wanted a non-denominational ceremony. Jerrie skyped with us for our first meeting and we immediately knew she was the right fit. Even better, she had a a packet prepared with suggestions for readings and sample vows. We knew we wanted something non-traditional and she provided guidance which helped make it truly special. She met with us a few weeks before our wedding and took the time to get to know us and provide suggestions to customize our vows. Several of our guests commented on how well she captured our personalities and how intimate the ceremony seemed. We can't thank her enough for officiating and being a part of our big day!Sent on 01/05/2019

Lyndsay B. · Married on 10/10/2018
I am so happy we found Jerrie! My husband and I decided to elope and Jerrie was so helpful and accommodating. We contacted her 5 days before our date and she made it happen for us. She explained to us how to get our marriage license (we travelled from Canada) and she helped us pick a location and our vows. It was exactly what we wanted and so "us"Sent on 12/07/2018

Savannah · Married on 09/22/2018
After our first meeting with Jerrie, we knew we had found the perfect officiant for our wedding. Jerrie had an uncanny ability to understand completely the unique relationship that myself and my now husband have! We enjoyed every meeting that we had with her, and found the visits valuable and honestly so enjoyable! She helped to set our minds at ease when we were knee deep in planning and craziness. Not only was she so kind throughout the planning process, but she made sure our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We wanted short but sweet, with some religious aspects but also earthy tones. She was able to find this balance beautifully! We highly recommend Jerrie to any couple looking for a tailor maid ceremony.Sent on 10/02/2018

Katrin · Married on 07/14/2018
Jerrie helped make our alternative Tree ceremony everything we had dreamed of. She was willing to work with us with barely two weeks notice and provided so much support. The only regret is that my husband wanted some feedback on his vows, but there wasn't time. We received many compliments on our ceremony, everybody thought it was beautiful and special, and that Jerrie did an amazing job. So happy with everything!Sent on 07/25/2018

Bobby · Married on 06/17/2017
Jerrie did a wonderful job, officiating a beautiful ceremony that she really helped put together! A family member was scheduled to officiate, but had to drop out with only about two months to go. Jerrie filled in on short notice and her great ceremony templates, ritual ideas, potential readings, music options, and more made the entire process as easy as planning a wedding can be.Sent on 07/27/2017
She wrote up a draft for us based on our story, and worked with us to finalize the script. She was happy to incorporate every element we wanted, and she shared suggestions based on our ideas. The end result was a great ceremony that captured us very well, went really smoothly, and got a lot of compliments. Our guests told us it was amazing how well she knew us and how well she described our relationship. My wife and I both highly recommend working with Ceremonies & Passages!

Suzanne · Married on 07/30/2016
After researching many JPs and officiants for our non-denominational wedding. We decided to meet with Jerrie based on the information on her website and on the exchange of various emails which showed us that there were various options that could be utilized to create a unique and memorable ceremony. From our very first meeting with Jerrie, she was friendly, knowledgeable, incredibly helpful, and sincerely offered great input to the organization and flow of our ceremony. We knew from our first meeting that she would help us create our perfect ceremony.Sent on 08/28/2016
Our ceremony was very personal and included our own custom vows and a reading based on our relationship, along with a one of a kind wine ceremony. We cannot recommend Jerrie highly enough and have even had our guests comment on what a great officiant she was.
Ceremonies & Passages's reply:Suzanne, it was fun to work with you and Adam. Your openness and clarity of your vision led the way. Be great. Laugh. Live life fully. Love and be blessed!
Jess · Married on 05/28/2016
My husband and I live 3 states away and planning our wedding was no easy task, however selecting Jerri as our officiant was the easiest task we came across. She was able to work around our difficult schedule and was genuinely interested in getting to know us. She provided us with guidance on how to go about writing our own vows and her presentation was very professional. I would highly recommend Jerri to everyone I know. I'd like to add the fact that we had a multicultural fusion wedding, which added to the complexity but it was such a smooth process thanks to Jerri's experience.Sent on 08/21/2016
Ceremonies & Passages's reply:Thank you Jess for the honor of creating your special day. Be great.

Elizabeth · Married on 05/30/2015
Jerrie was wonderful! She officiated our civil ceremony in May 2015 in Boston and gave us just what we wanted: a short and sweet, intimate and meaningful ceremony. She was such a pleasure to work with through the whole process, and gave great advice and guidance. I also loved the fact we got an opportunity to preview the ceremony beforehand. But perhaps the best thing about working with Jerrie was her calming presence on the day of the wedding. She really made us feel at ease, was so patient with our families and had a warm and professional demeanor that made everything go very smoothly. Highly recommended!Sent on 06/30/2015
Ceremonies & Passages's reply:Many thanks Elizabeth and Kean!!! It was so great to work with you both and meet your family and friends! Have a wonderful life. Be great!
Cathy · Married on 05/23/2015
We met with Rev. Jerrie and she was a treasure to talk with. She took the time to learn about who me and my husband are and what is important to us and wrote a beautiful ceremony. If we had to do it again I would choose Rev. Jerry again.Sent on 10/08/2016
Lisa · Married on 08/31/2014
Our wedding was a perfect day and it all started with Jerrie. I had no idea how to go about finding an officiant and was nervous I wouldn't find one, being a holiday weekend. I went online and wrote a few emails and waited with my fingers crossed. I received an email from Jerrie and couldn't be happier with our choice. She was very helpful, answered any questions we had, promptly, and met with us a couple times before the wedding. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful! I will definitely be recommending her if anyone needs an officiant. Thanks Jerrie ?Sent on 11/20/2014

Lisa · Married on 12/01/2012
Rev. Jerrie was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I were looking for a quick, but meaningful ceremony and that is exactly what we got! We met with Rev. Jerrie in person once, before we hired her and were able to correspond via email to execute the contract and review/write our ceremony. This was important for us due our really hectic schedules and long daily commutes. She spends time writing the ceremony you want and is extremely flexible with changing readings, vows, etc. It's not just a standard ceremony like most JPs would provide. Her fee is also extremely reasonable.Sent on 01/09/2013
