    Met as Officiant and parted as Friends

    Jen was perfect for us from the first time we spoke. I detected the enthusiasm and energy in her voice over the phone. She is both of those and more. She emailed us everything we needed to complete, from vows, to prayers, to where to get our marriage license. She made it all so easy. We both enjoyed our ceremony so much because we knew exactly what was next. Jen was flexible with us, too, since the weather caused a change of plans. Our whole family loved her. She was just so sweet. I felt like I was married by a family member!

    Jen is wonderful, a great Flagstaff value

    Jen as our wedding minister was great! From the moment we initially reached out to her to do our ceremony in Flagstaff, she was always quick to respond to any of our questions. She is very kind and personable, and made sure she got to know us and our relationship. Our small ceremony was sweet thanks to Jen's sermon (which she composed and allowed us to view and edit every step of the way). If you want one less worry for your wedding, we definitely recommend Jen Paul as your wedding officiant.

    Jen was absolutely perfect. She really takes time to personalize your ceremony and make it special. During the ceremony you can tell she is being so intentional with every word. I would recommend her over and over again!

    Look no further - Jen Paul is the best!

    We can't praise Jen enough! When we first spoke to Jen we knew instantly that she was perfect fit for us. It is rare to find someone who is not only professional and detailed but also intuitive, warm and caring. She was able to effortlessly guide us through the process of creating an intimate, sacred, wedding ceremony that was uniquely ours without any stress.

    Jen was quick to respond to any questions we had and was on top of every detail. She was also an invaluable source of information about vendors, wedding license, etc.

    There are countless "officiants" you could choose. But if you want to feel like a friend married you - a wise, spiritual, loving soul - ask Jen. You will not be disappointed.

    Master of her profession

    Jen was everything and more in what we were looking for in an officiant for our elopement at Horseshoe Bend. Finding an officiant online who you won't get the chance to meet beforehand is a daunting prospect. After one phone conversation with Jen, all of our worries were gone. She's incredible at managing and streamlining the pre-wedding process. She had a call with us to gain an understanding of our backstory, which was beautifully incorporated into our ceremony. She emailed everything we needed to complete on our end, all the way from vow selection to different places we could get our marriage license. Highly, highly recommend.

    Custom Wedding Officiant

    Jen Paul takes the time to really get to know a couple. My husband and I did not live in Arizona when we got married, but Jen spent hours with us on the phone getting to know us as a couple and learning what we wanted for our ceremony!

    We are so glad that we chose Jen as our wedding officiant! Over the year before our wedding, she really took the time to get to know us as a couple. Our ceremony was so personalized and so beautiful, and completely us! All of our friends and family were so impressed. She truly helped make it a day we will never forget.

It was so wonderful being a part of your big day, creating the perfect ceremony with you both and getting to know your family's better.

    We love you Jen!

    Jen was able to deliver a ceremony that was heartfelt, funny, tearful, and joyous. My wife and I will never forget our special day and Jen was truly the force that brought it all together. The wedding was a culmination of about three months of preparation on Jens part. Through phone conversations and emails, Jen was able to get to know my wife and myself intimately enough that when we shared our vows we felt as though we were being joined together by a true friend. The fact was, we never met Jen face to face until the day of our wedding! If you are in search of an officant that will deliver a message worthy of the occasion, you need look no further than Jen Paul. If you read this Jen, Thank You Always for being such a special part of our lives and our memories!

    Maine Couple with a Grand Canyon Wedding

    My new bride, Susan, and I are from Maine. I suggested that instead of having a wedding here at home, why not go out to the Grand Canyon and get married on the rim. We were both at an age we didn't need a big wedding and knew this would be the best. We found a photographer but ran into some difficulty finding someone to officiate the ceremony. Susan asked the photographer if he had someone to recommend and he replied that he worked well with Jen Paul of Life Passages. He felt that we would like her and she would fit nicely with what we were planning on doing. From our first call with her, we felt very comfortable. She helped us layout the ceremony that fit what we were exactly looking for. Jen made our wedding beautiful, relaxed, and fun! Susan and I both agreed after the ceremony that we couldn't have made a better choice.

    Jen was amazing to work with at all stages of our wedding. We always felt so comfortable working with her. She thought of absolutely everything, when I started to tear up at our beautiful wedding ceremony Jen discreetly handed me a tissue, and continued on with the ceremony!

    A ceremony you won't forget!

    The whole point of having a wedding is having a ceremony that represents you and your spouse. Jen Paul is the officiant that you need to hire to have exactly what you want. I have never met such a kind and caring person like Jen. She was such a treasure to work with. She took the time to get to know us and treated what we wanted with so much respect. She wanted to know our story, she wanted to make our wedding as perfect as we could imagine it to be. The amount of detail she went into about our story gave our guests an insight into our relationship that some of them didn’t even know. I would highly recommend hiring her for a rehearsal as well as for the day of your ceremony, this gave us a great chance to get to know her and work out any kinks that could possibly happen during the ceremony. She came so prepared for our wedding, including having our vows printed, our handfasting ribbon ready, and a very beautiful keepsake for us to have forever, not to mention she took care of our paperwork with so much precision. She is one of those people that you want to hang around for your reception and to have as a friend for a lifetime. Hire Jen and you won’t be disappointed at all.

    Jen Paul performed a vow renewal for my husband and I this past August and we were blown away, not just by her beautiful nature and warmth but also by how she “got” who we were and tailored the ceremony so perfectly. Jen is caring and compassionate and cares so deeply. Her warth and professionalism eased my mind and helped make the ceremony so care free. Basically all I needed to think about was showing up. Jen did the rest. She created such a beautiful, heart felt, memorable experience for us. She even included our daughter in the experience which meant made it even more special. I could go on and on. The ceremony was perfect and Jenn was such a magical part of our day.

    Our wedding ceremony was just what we wanted! Travelling from the UK to a place you don't know, to get married is quite daunting! But Jen was warm and welcoming in early email exchanges and through Skype. She helped us customise our ceremony - which ended up being great! Jen took the time to get to know us and injects a bit of your personalities into the ceremony! She was also super flexible on the day thanks to the unpredictability of the weather! Very happy to recommend Jen to anyone!

    I could not have asked for a better officiant at our wedding this past July. We had no idea where to start with the ceremony process, but thankfully Jen knew exactly what to do. She thought of things we forgot and gave us numerous options to choose from for the structure and vibe of the ceremony. She had a calm demeanor, which put at ease on our big day. I would recommend Jen to anyone!

    Our wedding ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Jen's warmth and good humor made us comfortable immediately, and her knowledge of Arizona was a huge help to us as we planned our wedding at the Grand Canyon from a distance. She had lots of helpful suggestions and was willing to go back and forth with us so that were able to totally customize our ceremony -- it ended up being better than imagined! I like that Jen takes the time to get to know you so she was able to conduct the ceremony in a way that reflected our personality as a couple. She was flexible, prompt, and welcoming to our families.

    Jen was an amazing officiate for our wedding. We received multiple complements from family and guests about how our ceremony was one of the best they have attended. The ceremony was intimate and really shared our story to our friends and family. She was very patient, calm, and understanding throughout the entire process up to wedding day. On the wedding day, she was also flexible as we had weather that pushed back our ceremony by 2 hours. I highly recommend Jen, and I am thankful she was a part of our wedding day.

    Jen is truly a gift from above!
    Jen created the most amazing ceremony and the vows she crafted from my wishes left me speechless and completely in tears. Who could know someone like this existed? It is as if she was inside my soul and knew my heart. My husband to be then was so at ease and so completely moved by our special wedding. I had spoken to Jen but we did not meet till our ceremony. It was if I had known her all my life. It was seamless from beginning to end.
