John was wonderful. Sweet, kind, knowledgeable and fun. Everyone liked him. He made our ceremony and rehearsal. We both were nervous about everything. Once we did the rehearsal we were ready to get married!!!
Working with Walton Weddings was wonderful! Their price was so low compared to what they did. , We called around for prices and when they told us all they did compared to what others said my husband said grab them! We were glad we did!
Jearri, It was my pleasure to help you. You both were so wonderful. Thank you for the honor of performing your wedding. I can't wait to see your fun wedding party again in your wedding pictures! John
My wife Michelle and I got married on May 27, 2018 and Jeannie was our officiant and we absolutely loved her. Since the first time we met her we knew she would be perfect for us. Jeannie helped us out with everything from getting us prepared for the big day, to our timeline all the way to the wedding day and guiding us threw everything to make everything perfect. Our day was 100 degrees out and Jeannie went above and beyond to make sure everyone was ok and made sure nobody passed out. I would recommend Jeannie to everyone and anyone. Thank you again Jeannie!!!
Dan and Michelle,
It was my pleasure to do everything possible to make your day great. You are a very special couple!! Thank you so much!
Wow! We have been in many weddings so when we were ready to pick our officiant we wanted someone great that could bring out our vision. We wanted a fun, romantic, relaxed, fun ceremony because I lost my dad and he was fun. I wanted to honor his memory. I told my wedding coordinator how important my ceremony was and she said she would only go with Jeannie or John at Walton Weddings. When I talked with Jeannie I was blown away. She could see my vision and she gave me so many ways to honor my dad. She taught me so many things that I did not know about a wedding day and ceremony. I felt so relaxed and happy. I was so excited about my wedding! She did an amazing job taking care of both of us. OUr wedding was spectacular. We had 15 bridesmaids and 15 groomsmen, she did a great job keeping them in line and making us all look great. We were beyond happy! I felt so pleased. My bridesmaids were shocked because she asked them if they needed water or were they too warm. They all were in other weddings and said no one cares about the bridesmaids! WE LOVED OUR WEDDING. Jeannie is my fairy godmother. We are so happy and she also told us about her favorite photographer and we loved them too. It was a magical and wonderful day.
Jeannie was amazing. From the first time we spoke with her she put us at ease. We were having a huge wedding (240) and a huge wedding party (24) it is our family tradition, I do not recommend it. I was overwhelmed and not excited about our wedding. Jeannie explained everything about our ceremony choices and gave us great ideas for putting some surprises in their. She then taught us about our entire day and what to expect. She told us how a time schedule would look like and how to have time in between things to breathe and get excited about our wedding. I asked her who she liked for a DJ and Photographer. By the time we were done talking I was so happy. Our wedding day was fantastic. Our ceremony was amazing. It was just what we wanted romantic, sweet and fun! We did not want a dull wedding and it was not dull. Jeannie was incredibly organized. We had some rowdy guys in the group and she won them over and they loved her. We highly recommend her.
Jeannie made sure everything at our wedding went smoothly! She is sweet, caring, and funny and helps ease the nerves before the ceremony! I would definitely recommend her, as I could tell she truly cared and wanted our day to be perfect.
Sydney, I waited for your and George's wedding. You both are so special! I loved your wedding and I am so glad you did! Thank you!
I was told to find an officiant and I hit the jackpot. I called several people and 2 got back to me. They said what is your date and here is your price. Very cold. The third person was Jeannie. She said tell me about you both and where are you getting married. She was so cool. We talked for an hour. I loved her! Jackpot! I told my fiance and we hired her right away. One of the things my fiance wanted was someone that could handle my guys and they loved Jeannie and she kept them in line with jokes and a look of hey guys! We loved our fun ceremony. We are still getting compliments. Jeannie made me look good as a groom too. Jeannies price was super low for what she did. We had her do extra's too. We had some stressful family dynamics with both our parents divorce. (they do not play well together and neither do their new spouses) Since she is s a Life Coach my wife and I met with her 5 times to really talk it out not only or our wedding day but for the first year of our marriage. It worked out great. My siblings noticed that the plan worked and my parents behaved! That was worth it! For a guy to say I loved our wedding I know is a bit weird but I did. I loved seeing my wife's face, the peace and happiness it was AWESOME! Thanks Jeannie, you rock!
Thank you so much! You really were the leader for our ceremony & we are so happy we picked you!
Lisa, it was my privilege. Your ceremony was exciting, getting married outside not only with your all your guests in attendance but all of the people at the venue there too was tricky but it went so well. There were about 270 people who saw you married!! It was exciting and you were delightful!
Our wedding was a very personal ceremony we created ourselves and Jeannie Walton was wonderful to work with! She made our day complete and we highly recommend her!
Thank you so much! Thanks for including the pictures. When you walked down the aisle with your brothers and your son it brought tears to my eyes it was so beautiful. You and your husband were wonderful!!
Jeannie was amazing! She truly helped make our day perfect! Whenever we had questions, which we had a lot of she answered very quickly and definitely made us feel at ease. With the help and recommendations from Jeannie we were able to let our personalities show. Full of laughs and romance. This day was everything we had dreamed of. :-)
You were a dream couple. You did everything right, you were a relaxed, calm and happy couple. It came through in all of your pictures! Thank you for the honor of performing your wedding! You both are wonderful!
Jeannie did a fantastic job! Our wedding ceremony was beautiful. It was very personalized and touching. She was great with the kids and put everyone at ease. Our guests also really liked her. She knows what she's doing and has great ideas and solutions for any situation. We're so grateful we went with her. Would definitely recommend her.
LIsa, You both were wonderful, you did an excellent job writing your vows and expressing yourselves. Al of the kids were perfect! Your husband starting to spill the sand to make the sand ceremony fun was so funny! When he encouraging all of the kids to do it was historical! The funniest part was the youngest looking at you all like you were nuts! I cannot wait to see your pictures!. Thank you !! You are the sweetest! Jeannie
Smart, Fun, Kind, Took a lot of time with us to teach us about our wedding and our entire day. Took a lot of stress off us both and we loved our wedding! Our guest are still complimenting us. Our wedding party liked her too! My mom sent her a thank you note. Fun fun fun! Rehearsal great, Wedding great process great Great!
April, Thank you so much. I had so much fun with you both and your family! Your wedding party was a blast! Let me know when your pictures get in! Jeannie!
When we first talked to Jeannie we were all smiles. All the stress of planning went away. We were so happy! Everything made sense! Planning our ceremony was way more fun than we thought. It became more than we ever thought possible. We wanted to include our parents so we did a something special for them at the beginning of the ceremony. They loved it. Jeannie loved our story so she did a great job pulling some funny stories out of us and telling our guests them. She wove in a bit of romance too. We are still getting compliments. Dave and I thought our ceremony was not too important. We were only concerned with our reception and the party. After we did our rehearsal I was so excited about the ceremony. After our actual ceremony I was thrilled. I am so glad we found Jeannie. I would have done a very simple walk in walk out ceremony with no meaning. We loved our ceremony. We got a ton of compliments. We have a great memory. Our friend did a video as a surprise. It was the best part of our day. Thank you Jeannie!
Diane, Your words are so sweet! Thank you so much. Your wedding was so much fun. I loved seeing how happy you both were. Thank you so much. Please send me some pictures!
John was so much fun. He made me laugh which calmed me down so much. I am so thankful we chose Him My photographer kept saying you are so lucky you got a great officiant. Most most officiants do not work! We loved him Everyone complimented us on our wedding.
Candy, Hearing you both laugh and was wonderful . I enjoyed your wedding so much and I am glad you loved it! Please send me your pictures! Juohn
John was our Minister. John and Jeannie are very patient. My wedding was a year and 1/2 ago and I promised I would write a review and here it is. Fantastic, we loved our process and our wedding. I am extremely unorganized, I sorta fly by the seat of my pants or so says my mom. I drove everyone crazy. Jeannie and John met with Armad and I and made Armad so happy. Sweetly Jeannie explained everything and John added a lot. We were happy! Everything made seance. Armad an accountant :), loves things in order and he found what he wanted. I liked them because they were fun. We loved our ceremony. It was so much fun. I just stood there and could not believe how magical it was. I always wanted to get married at the Zoo in front of the fountain to Armand. It was perfect. I would say do not hestitate. John did a fantastic job. Jeannie's tips and timeline made Armand happy so I would show up on time to marry him!!! My mom was thrilled. I want to do it all over again. Thanks for the best day of our lives. We love you two!!.
You are the best. 1 2/2 year is not too long to review us at all. We know that you are super busy. Your personalities made your wedding great. I had so much fun. Thank you for your kind words. When you have time add one of your pictures!
Jeannie made our wedding so magical and even more special by the way she put together our ceremony and the way she presented it our guests loved it too. We will never forget her and how special she made our day God bless you Jeannie and a million thank yous!
Professional, Super Reasonable, because they give you so much more than a regular officiant . We talked to several officiants and they were nice and business like. When we talked with Jeannie and John we could feel how much they cared. They gave us a ton of information we thought we knew but we did not. Jeannie gave us a tip sheet to teach us about the entire wedding day not just the ceremony. My fiancé was smiling because I was smiling. Relief!
Our officiant was John and he was a loving, calming presence. He made sure we were all good and then we walked down the aisle. His smile was so reassuring. We were very nervous at first and then everything went so well. It was like I was floating.
We HIGHLY recommend them. When you shop for vendors look at value for what they do. Going cheaper is not a good idea, we had to fire our photographer after our engagement session. We learned an expenisve lesson. Go professional and have a great wedding day.
I was so happy to officiate your wedding. You both were wonderful and so was your wedding party! Please send me pictures. Happy Life! John
Best referral we received. Having a memorable ceremony was the most important thing to me. I interviewed many officiants. Jeanine you gave me exactly what i wanted and everything you promised. It was funny, emotional short and sweet. Thank you for reaching out and communicating with all my vendors so everyone was on the same page. You gave us a beautiful ceremony to remember. Those 5 questions really shared a lot with our guests they loved it and so did we. We had so many people compliment us on the ceremony from our friends to our family. We were told it was the best they've ever seen. Thank you for sharing in our day and giving this bride everything she dreamed the ceremony could be.
Laura + Adam, you both are amazing! Laura as you walked down the aisle and your daughter started singing as a surprise to Adam, I almost fell over! It was breath taking! Your son and daughter did an outstanding job. Thank you for letting me be a part of your day.
Jeannie we cannot thank you and John enough. The pre wedding tips for our wedding ceremony and wedding day were a life saver. John did an excellent job with our ceremony. We loved it!
Tracy and Jackson
Wow, I could not have asked for someone better to help me though planning our wedding ceremony and performing it. Right before our
August wedding I called in and talked to your assistant. She said you took a 2 weeks off to care for your mom. That night you got back to me as if I was the only bride in the world. You are so upbeat, kind, smart and always willing to help. We loved our ceremony and got so many compliments on it. Thank you so much.
Jeff will be sending you pictures!! You are the best!!
Jeff and Sandy,
You both were amazing to work with. So sweet, kind and on top of things. I loved how organized you both were. Planning ahead really made you calm on your wedding day. Your wedding party and parents were amazing. Thank you for the honor of officiating your wedding. Can't wait to see your pictures!!
In a word PERFECT. We were having a large wedding at the Zoo and it was very overwhelming. My friend told me to call Jeannie and she would make everywhere clear. I spoke with 6 officiants and it left a bad taste in my mouth. It was all business. Jeannie within the first 10 minutes gave me peace, explained not only my ceremony but everything else I needed to know for the whole day. Planning is hard and I had a picture in my mind of photos, dinner, dj but Jeannie helped me see how the whole day would flow. My fiance and I were so happy and felt more confident. I was done planning a month early because of the tips Jeannie gave me. We loved our wedding ceremony Jeannie gave us 5 questions to answer and read them in our wedding. We got so many compliments. What a great day. I would describe Jeannie at sweet, kind, teaching, loving, helpful and encouraging. We are so THANKFUL!!
Carol, I am so glad that you and Ken had a wonderful time. You both are so sweet and a lot of fun. Your guest were wonderful. Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing pictures !
I talked to a lot of officants and not many spent time answering questions I had. When I spoke with Jeannie she tool a lot of time with me and not only answered the questions I had but told me so much more about my wedding day. The fee for our ceremony and rehearsal was a great price. It was more reasonable than the other officants we talked to and they explained so much more. John was our officant for our wedding. He was so nice and so calm at the rehearsal. We were both anxious with having so many out of town guests fly in. Once we saw John we calmed down. Our ceremony was wonderful. So fun, sweet and very romantic. John added so much with his kind ways. We felt so comfortable.
Reann and I will be forever thankful!

We had such a great wedding and would recommend Walton Weddings to everyone!
They are extremely caring and professional. The price was lower than most of the officiants, they gave so much more than other officiants offered and did a great job at our rehearsal. Our wedding party and parents liked them too.
Thank you for making our day great!!!
You and your wife were wonderful to work with and we are so happy you loved your wedding! Send pictures!
Our wedding was Amazing! Thank you for making our wedding day fun and easy! It was a very special day for us and you made feel us so relaxed. You are Awesome!!!
Thank you for your kind words. I loved officiating your wedding. I love when couples elope and I get to be there to experience their special moment.
Rev. Jeannie is more than an Officiant. Our first meeting she shared all of her ideas from order of events, when do do your rehearsal, what moments are great for the photographer, to making sure we got 5 minutes to ourselves to take in the day. I don't know that I would have thought of all of those things. We were hooked! We had lots of communication via email, she sent us example vows, readings, ceremony programs etc. Which I absolutely loved. I merged a bunch of things together and sent it back to her. Rehearsal: She is extremely professional and on top of everything. She communicates with the venue to make sure everything is just perfect. Day of - she was even pulling bobbypins out of her hair to fix a falling curl in mine. Mother hen, fairy godmother, officiant & planner all in one! In the moment: so our venue lost our locks for our love lock ceremony from my rehearsal 3 days before. Rev Jeannie played it cool adding in a story about how things happen in life and we have to adapt, make due and continue on. It was the most beautiful thing and we just pretended. After, she told us that once the venue bought us new locks we all would go back and have an actual little love lock ceremony. She is a very sweet and funny woman and was an absolute blessing for our wedding! Note to all the brides out there, book early! Reasonable officiants are hard to find!!
You and your husband are wonderful, sweet and so kind. I loved performing your wedding. Your teens were amazing and fun. All of the details and work you put into your ceremony and reception was worth all of the work . What I loved the most is when you found out that your love locks were missing. You both stayed so calm, within 2 minutes you decided we are going to have a great ceremony anyway and when I suggested the family pretending to put the love locks on you all did a perfect job. Your friends and family reacted with laughter and sweet sighs of joy. You all were wonderful and it was my pleasure. We hand such a great time at Pinstripes in Oak Brook!
We loved dealing with Jeannie and John. Jeannie you helped me plan our vow renewal and surprise my wife. John you were a great officiant. You helped keep me calm with the surprise and you helped my wife come out of shock of all the guests at our house to do the ceremony. John you were amazing thanks so much!
It was so great to see your wife's face when she walked in the door! It was better to see the shock go out of it when you did your vows! You did an amazing job surprising her.
