    From day one, Jackie is a joy to work with. Patient, warm, understanding, and experienced are some of the best ways to describe Jackie. Neither of us knew the first thing about putting together a ceremony, especially for an LGBT union, but Jackie got us off to a fantastic start with dozens of ideas and resources for what we could say and how to structure everything. With her expert guidance, we created a ceremony that reflected the nuances of our personalities and showed the best of our relationship to each other and to our friends and family. Our guests at the ceremony described it as "intimate," "unique," and "beautiful," due to the way that Jackie made everyone an integral part of the celebration. From the beginning to the end, Jackie exuded calm and was a wonderful anchor on which we could rely.

    Thank you so, so much for making our ceremony one that we, our friends and our loved ones will cherish.

    Look no further!!! Jackie is the best wedding officiant out there NYC! She replied quickly to e-mails and created a unique ceremony that fit us perfectly. On our actual wedding day, she made us feel comfortable and relaxed because she was so organized, confident and in-control of everything officiant-related.

    Jackie Reinking is a heartwarming and empathic person and that is how she arranged our whole wedding ceremony: Full of lovely words, romantic phrases and individual storys from our lives. I can totally recommend her as a wedding officiant, because she did her work with passion that everybody felt on this special day.

    We booked Jackie Reinking as our officiant and her husband Sascha (as our photographer) for our wedding in New York and it was the best choice we could have made.
    Jackie kept in touch with us from our first plans to the day of our wedding and because of that constant contact she created such a wonderful, personal and unique ceremony for us. Whenever we had questions she answered them quickly. We would always go with Jackie again.

    We decided to use Jackie as a part of #TeamReinking and what a great decision it was because we couldn't now imagine our day without her. We eloped from the UK and therefore all communications were made over email, however instantly we felt comfortable with the friendliness, professional and prompt replies we received to our numerous queries.

    She made all efforts to make the ceremony personal and created a wonderful speech that made the day even more special. On the day itself, she eased both of our nerves and made the created a fantastic atmosphere to make us both feel comfortable in her presence.

    Thank you

    The sweetest, nicest and kindest hugger your will ever encounter. Although we requested Jackies services 48 hrs before the wedding day, ceremony speech was very emotional and poetic. It touched all the sweet spots and helped us with our personal wows. Jackie and her husband Sascha really made our day very special and unique.

    Jackie was central in making our wedding day a day to remember. Her friendliness and professionalism made her a joy to work with. We knew from our first interaction that Jackie was the person we wanted to marry us - warm, relaxed yet focused and somehow she seemed to just 'get us.' We loved the collaborative approach to putting the ceremony together. It was so unique and so us, simply perfect. We would happily recommend Jackie as an officiant. We might even have to plan a renewal of our vows just to use her services again!

    Jackie came highly recommended to us by our photographer - her husband Sascha! It seemed to special to me to have a lovely couple conduct the two most important parts of our wedding day and we emailed back and forth for nearly 18 months planning every detail. Jackie wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us and incorporated all the details I had added. Meeting her on our wedding day was like meeting up with a friend and we will treasure the memory of her words and the moment forever. Do not hesitate to book Jackie if you are looking to get married in New York because you won't find anyone more perfect for the job.

    It’s safe to say that the stresses on your wedding day can be quite overbearing. However with Jackie and Sascha all of our stress simply melted away. From the start we knew we were in great hands.

    Jackie’s presence during the ceremony was comforting as she not only conducted a very personal wedding with grace but commanded all attention to where it belonged... on us. She reinforced our notion that it was our day and it was ok to do it “our way.”

    Sascha is a wonderful photographer as we got all the shots we wanted AND MORE. He was able to capture both the big moments as well as those small details that would have been missed had he’d not been there. Most importantly, Sascha turned what is seemingly an unforgettable time during one’s wedding day into a cherished time together.

    We couldn’t possibly thank Jackie and Sascha enough for help making our wedding the happiest day of our lives.

    Deciding to go with Jackie as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding. By choosing Jackie you are not only choosing your photographer but a team that will help you through all the technicalities of the wedding. For a small elopement from abroad like ours this has been game-changing. Help with the paperwork, photographer, flowers, makeup and central park permit are some examples where Jackie insight has been a lifesaver!

    Oh, and the ceremony was lovely! She just has that confidence to put everyone at ease at that moment which can be stressful for some people! If you want a hassle-free wedding Jackie is the officiant you need!

    I thought that trying to organise an elopement wedding in a foreign country would be beyond stressful, but I hadn't factored in picking Jackie Reinking as my officiant.
    From the first email she was the most helpful, knowledgeable and fun person and took any stress right away.
    She's super professional and points you in the right direction for what forms are needed and when you need to complete them.
    She managed to write the most beautiful service, that completely summed us up as a couple and it was as though we had known her for years not just through email conversations that had happened over a few months.
    She is just a lovely happy person, who clearly loves her job and is fabulous at it.
    Picking Jackie will he the best decision you make if you need an officiant, I couldn't have been happier she is just fabulous.

    We booked Jackie together with her talented husband Sascha to take our photographs. Well, what can we say that also she was a perfect match to us. As fun and loving each of their clients she also make us feel special and gave us a perfect fitted ceremony at the Top of the Rock. The communication beforehand was as easy as it could be and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Thank you Jackie so much for making our day as special as it ever could have been.

    Jackie is such a lovely person! We had a great wedding day with Jackie and her husband Sascha (our photographer). She planned the ceremony together with us and asked us to tell her something about our relationship, hobbies, etc. Because of that we had a very personal ceremony with a beautiful speech. Thank you so much Jackie!!

    We cannot recommend Jackie enough. She was fabulous. Made us feel so relaxed loved through the whole process. As we eloped we had no family with us, we used both Jackie and her husband Sascha (photographer - amazing). They worked as a team to make our special day full of love, laughter and made it something truly special.

    Jackie was everything we needed in an officiant. She is professional, thoughtful, and passionate about what she does. She took great care to guarantee that our ceremony was exactly as we envisioned it. It was a glorious day - and I could not have been happier with Jackie’s role in making our day so very special. ??

    "Wasn't it weird using an officiant that you didn't meet until the ceremony?"
    Not with Jackie doing the wedding. Very professional and very flexible. Her ceremony was right on point for us after one brief phone conversation. I have preformed dozens of weddings myself over many years, and I was able to get several ideas from Jackie. Thanks to Jackie, our day was perfect!

    We've got married with Jackie and her husband Sascha. Everything was perfect and so easy. Jackie is such a lovely person and we felt comfortable with her from the first second we met her. She had the right words for us and our ceremony and we're so happy, that we have chosen her for our wedding

    We booked Jackie through her husband Sascha as a package. It was the best decision we made! Jackie was absolutely amazing. She was prompt in answering all the questions i had emailed her and was always happy to help in providing suggestions on where to have a spray tan, mani and pedi etc.

    Paul and i traveled from Australia to get married in NYC. Planning a wedding is stressful enough let alone in a different country. But Jackie eased the whole process! Even when we had to change the date because our dream venue was unavailable. The ceremony she had written for us was better than i ever expected. She tailored it to us, even with including a quote from our favorite television show F.R.I.E.N.D.S (she happened to pick a quote from my favorite episode too!) If you are looking for an amazing officiant BOOK HER NOW you wont regret it! Thank you Jackie for everything, Paul and i will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Sascha and Jackie. They are both so friendly, super helpful, organized and super talented.
    Sascha and Jackie was in contact with us every step of the way on our planning - we were so clueless, nervous and stressed about everything and they made us feel relaxed and give us the reassurance we need.
    We had a great experience from start to finish and the results were truly fantastic!

    Our ceremony was beautiful and we received numerous compliments from our guest on how amazing and perfect it was done.
    Sascha captured our day so perfectly with his camera and Jackie made us laugh and even bought tears to our eyes with her powerful and touching words.
    They truly captured the magic and essence of our day!

    We recommend this amazing super team to anyone who is looking for a photographer/officiant. You will not be disappointed and you will have no regrets!

    We found Jackie's information on Sascha's website. She is a very nice person to work with. She really took time to know us and our stories by asking good questions. She was very responsive to my emails and provided great wedding materials for me to refer to. No matter I wanted to have some suggestions on my vows or update the ceremony script, she was always there helping me out. Jackie did care how I felt during wedding planing. She was able to sense that I was little stressed out and helped me to calm down. She and her husband, Sascha, are punctual and have great communication skills. I highly recommend Jackie to be your wedding officiant. She really turned a stressful wedding planning into a smooth and enjoyable process.
