    Very Friendly

    Janette was a great officiant. She was really friendly and had great suggestions and options for putting together the ceremony and made sure that it reflected our own personalities.

    Janette was everything AND MORE!! From start to finish she never stopped working so hard doing everything we agreed to and MORE. She was an asset to my wedding and I am so glad I found her.

    Thoughtful & professional officiant

    Janette was a pleasure to work with for our wedding this past October 2018. She immediately put both of us at ease in our initial meeting and came to that meeting with a helpful binder with ideas for our ceremony components.

    She was prompt, thoughtful in her feedback on the ceremony draft, and was knowledgeable about what needed to be done during the rehearsal to be prepared for the wedding day.

    I would highly recommend her services.

    Janette officiated my wedding at the SF Zoo! Working with Janette was great- she is extremely easy to work with and very flexible when it came to both ceremony material and timing. It was a breeze to develop the ceremony choices with her- we used her templates and then added a personalized intro and other touches. She showed up to both the rehearsal and ceremony on time and was very accommodating. Thanks Janette!

    Janette Shutts was an absolute joy to work with and I would recommend her wholeheartedly for any wedding!

    I first found Janette on WeddingWire, scheduled a free intro consultation and hired her for officiant and florist services for my 8-18-18 wedding. She did an incredible job with both! During the intro consultation, she provided example templates of how the ceremony might go (we ended up creating a customized ceremony) and provided anecdotes from her previous weddings along with tips. In addition, it was a bonus that she also had florist services! Both the officiant and florist services were a great value for the money and Janette worked with us on the flower budget by suggesting different vase & flower options to bring the costs down.

    Throughout her time with us, Janette treated us with the utmost professionalism, warmth and hospitality. All emails were promptly returned and we knew that we were in safe hands. When I made a last-minute change on the flower order (adding in more arrangements), Janette was able to handle it efficiently and graciously. Our wedding day turned out perfectly and Janette was a big part of it! She showed up early with the flowers and even helped us set up our own decorations for the venue, then did a spot-on job with officiating the ceremony. During the reception, people pulled us aside to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and loved the flower arrangements that she made.

    Thank you so much for making our day special, Janette!

    We had such a great experience with Janette!! We were planning our wedding from afar but were able to plan everything over e-mail which was perfect for us (although I knew she was available over the phone if we preferred)! She gave us information about getting our marriage license and input on all the details of the ceremony! It was absolutely perfect and super easy! We couldn't be happier!

    As father and step-mother to the groom we were unable to participate much in the planning as we live 1000 miles away. Janette's services and expertise were invaluable in the planning and execution of this fabulous occasion. We were so happy with how beautifully and well planned out the wedding/reception was and would highly recommend Janette's services for any event.

    We first contacted Janette back in January to officiate our wedding this past weekend June 23, 2018, once my now husband and I met her we knew we wanted her to have a bigger role in our wedding. We hired her to be our officiant as well as our wedding day coordinator and boy did she come through! She was very responsive to any of our questions and was wonderfully helpful with helping us figure out how the day should go. For our ceremony she came prepared with an array of options that made our ceremony so special and reflected our relationship so well that many of our guests were in tears because they knew that the whole ceremony reflected us. She kept us calmed and collected through out the ceremony and that made it so we would enjoy and remember it and not be a crying mess!
    I made a lot of our decorations and had an idea of what I wanted the final product to look like, and Janette made my vision a reality, she has a great eye for making things look beautifully put together. I could not give her enough thanks for making sure that what I wanted became a reality. Through out the whole wedding she kept checking in on us, making sure we were ok with the timeline, we had food, and drinks; we did not have to worry about anything. She kept the reception moving along and we got compliments after the wedding at how smoothly everything went. I honestly was nervous about giving up control, but I am so glad that we hired Janette and as soon as she took over I was able to relax and enjoy the night fully. She contacted and dealt with the vendors and my now husband and I did not worry once about what we should do or what to do next because Janette had everything under control.
    I would so highly recommend hiring Janette not just as your official and wedding day coordinator but use her other services too. I regret having booked other vendors before we met with Janette because I know that she would have done a wonderful job too.
    Thank you Janette for making our day unforgettable!

    Janette was a referral from my coordinator and we couldn’t have been happier with her services! We contacted her about 1.5 months before our wedding date and she was quick to respond to all of my questions. She was able to pick up on our personal style and make spot-on suggestions on how to tailor the ceremony and verbiage in our vows. On the day of the wedding, she was professional and accommodating of last minute changes. Her confident yet calm demeanor, kept us at ease (we were a bit nervous being the center of attention!). I would certainly recommend Janette to any couple..look no further! :)

    Janette was absolutely wonderful and I am so glad we hired her to be our officiant for our San Francisco wedding in early January 2018. Planning the wedding from afar, we spoke with Janette over the phone and via e-mail in order to get everything organized. Janette was always reliable throughout the time we worked with her. Additionally, she was very organized and supportive throughout the time we were trying to determine the specifics for our ceremony. She provided suggested ceremony outlines for us to use for our ceremony, and was open to us changing the provided documents in order to suit us. We combined her resources with our own vows and we added other elements to the ceremony as well (specifically a ring warming ceremony). It helped to make our ceremony unique without writing everything from scratch!
    Janette came to our hotel to do a rehearsal with us, and it put our minds at ease to say the least. We had to reschedule the timing of our rehearsal due to the travel arrangements of our wedding party, and Janette was very flexible and understanding. On the day of the rehearsal she arrived early and was very helpful when the location of our rehearsal changed as the area of the hotel we originally wanted to practice in was occupied. She was quick to think on the spot and make our limited hotel room space work for us. Janette was very organized throughout the evening and ensured everyone was aware of their roles and expectations for the ceremony. After the rehearsal, one of my bridesmaids even said that it was the most informative rehearsal they had ever attended.
    Janette ensured we felt comfortable on our big day and kept everyone organized before, during and after our ceremony. Her warm personality was a welcome presence throughout the rehearsal and the ceremony. We were so happy to have her support during the wedding planning process. I would definitely recommend her to any couple that is getting married in the Bay Area.

    Janette was amazing! From our first initial meeting we knew we wanted to hire her. She first provided us with a binder with multiple different ceremony choices. My Husband and I didn't have any clue how we wanted our ceremony to go, all we knew is we wanted simple, short and sweet. She helped us and we found the perfect ceremony. We also had a very rowdy wedding party and let me tell you during rehearsal she handle them professionally but also sternly which they ALL needed! LOL I would refer her to anyone! Thank you so much Janette!

    Janette served as both officiant and day-of coordinator for our wedding. She was fantastic to work with! When we first met her, she exuded warmth and sincerity, and we wanted her as our officiant immediately. As our wedding planning progressed, she was very on the ball, so we decided to hire her as our day-of coordinator too. As day-of coordinator, she took care of many last-minute details that we didn’t quite finish in time. It was a relief to show up to the venue and have her already there handling things--it suddenly felt like we could finally relax and really enjoy our wedding. As officiant, her warmth and professionalism really shone through; she delivered a wonderful ceremony that we’ll always remember. She went above and beyond to make our big day special, and we were so grateful for her help. Thank you Janette!

    Janette was very helpful from the beginning. We loved that she provided us with a binder to help customize the ceremony and sent sample vows before we even confirmed we were going to use her. She answered any questions we had and guided us in the right direction. On the day of she made sure to get through the ceremony in a timely manner because it was HOT, but still kept a good flow that did not feel rushed.

    I am so grateful that we were able to have Janette as the officiant for our wedding!

    Despite us doing nearly everything wrong, Janette was able to work with us on very short notice (less than 1 week!) and still accommodate all of our requests while being incredibly patient and helpful. On our wedding day, Janette arrived ahead of time and took the time to bond with the guests that had arrived. Her professionalism and warm personality put my wife and I at ease, and needless to say she performed the ceremony beautifully. I couldn't have asked for a better officiant.

    Thank you so much for helping make our wedding possible Janette!

    Janette was an incredible officiant and made our San Francisco City Hall ceremony so perfect! Since my husband and I live in New Jersey, we couldn't meet in person until the day of the wedding, but we spoke with her through phone calls and emails. She responded very quickly and was very helpful. She had different ceremony choices for us to choose from and we were able to personalize it ourselves to make it more us. She arrived extra early the day of the wedding which put us at ease. She even went the extra mile to turn in our wedding license herself to the city hall office after the ceremony so that we can attend to our guests and take pictures.

    Thank you Janette! We could not be more thankful to have had you be part of our special day!
