We studiously made a list of officiants we wanted to meet before choosing one. We met Jillian first and immediately knew we didn't have to look any further. She has a very kind, calming and thoughtful demeanor. Jillian listened to everything we wanted and asked us great questions about things we had not even thought of! She was very responsive throughout the process and created an excellent draft of the ceremony based on what we wanted before guiding us through until we had the customized ceremony we wanted that included all the right touches. My fiancé already has children and she helped us incorporate them into the ceremony in meaningful ways. When my grandfather passed away part way through the planning process she provided a thoughtful recommendation of how we could remember him in our ceremony. Jillian made the effort to attend our walkthrough because she had not been to that particular venue before which was appreciated. The evening before our wedding she expertly guided us through our rehearsal. Her sense of humor and patience was evident when dealing with my fiancé's notoriously joking/prankster brother and my excited family. On our wedding day time seemed to be moving very fast and while getting ready with my Mom and bridesmaids we started to get a little panicky about time and things being done....my Mom suddenly said "should I go get Jillian...she has a very calming influence" - the suggestion itself calmed us but I thought it spoke volumes that my Mom thought that and about what a genuine impact Jillian had on our day. So grateful to Jillian for helping us make our wedding dreams come true!

Jillian was excellent!
She first meet with us in a location of our choosing. As soon as we sat down with her we felt comfortable in her guiding us with our ceremony. Our wedding was a DIY outside BBQ. We had pretty much everything under control, except how to do a ceremony.
She was a huge help. She helped us incorporate my families religious views and our sarcastic funny side! She provided us with a 12 page guided ceremony paper they were able to piece down and make a quick 15 minute ceremony. All the while guiding us that our choices flowed together nicely.
She responses to emails/ calls very quickly.
She also checked in with us a month prior and gave us instructions on getting out marriage license. She checked in the week of our wedding and the night before. She was able to come early the day of and guide our very small wedding party since we chose not to do a rehearsal dinner.
Her easy going demeanor was just what we needed!
Once the ceremony was over she mailed in our marriage license right away and we got it less than 2 weeks later all complete.

Wow where to begin! From the first time we met we knew she was the officiant for us! Jillian made us feel so at ease, she took the worry out of the ceremony, she guided us but left the ultimate decisions to us. During the ceremony she was a calming Angel providing us with peaceful guidance again!
We would recommend her very highly to Family and Friends!

Jillian was great. She helped us create a very personal ceremony and had no problem with the fact that we wanted a non-religious ceremony. She answered all questions we had quickly and gave us very useful guidance on how to write our own vows. On our wedding day Jillian delivered the ceremony so well, and everyone loved her. I can not imaging how our wedding would have been without her, and so I can highly recommend her to anyone in the Boulder/Denver area.

Jillian is amazing. We spent a lot of time searching for an officiant because ultimately what they do is the most important part of the whole day (nope, it's not the flowers!) :). Finding an officiant who would let us do a ceremony exactly how we wanted (we didn't want any religious content but didn't want something so plain as a judge) was very hard but Jillian was perfect for us on our special day. We had such a simple ceremony but she let us do whatever we wanted and still made it so special. She drove very far for the rehearsal and again for the ceremony which we so appreciated. She gives you her full attention and makes you feel like a special couple.
She is a fantastic balance between professional and sweet. All of our guests were very impressed with her and how "us" our ceremony was and we couldn't have done it without her!

Rev. Jillian Freeman was AMAZING!!! We were so thankful we found her on here. She did exactly what we wanted, was very inexpensive, and was perfect for our ceremony. She had a very calming voice, she didn't mess up once, and most importantly, she stuck to the plan. I have never seen an officiant as good as her. She was beyond our expectations and we were very thankful she made our ceremony perfect.

Jillian helped us construct the most beautiful ceremony that was perfectly us! She was insightful without ever being opinionated and always encouraged us to choose what we desired. Jillian is eloquent with her words and peaceful in her demeanor. She provided a calming presence that we truly appreciated as we felt so overwhelmed with emotions that day. We had so many compliments about Jillian from our friends and family. I cannot express how grateful I am to her for being such a huge part of one of my happiest memories.

We decided to get married and have simple service with a few close family and friends. Reverend Freeman was available to perform our service with just a week of notice. She sent us sample ceremonies to pick and choose from so we could make our service as personal as possible to us and even helped us with many ceremony ideas for planning and staying within our limited budget. I would recommend her to any one!!! She is so nice and friendly and covers every little detail with you. She also gave us a keep sake copy of our ceremony which was beautiful and special. Thank you for a perfect day!

I loved working with Reverend Jillian! She made me feel at ease and from the moment we chose her I was completely happy with our decision. Which for those who know me I'm a very indecisive person. She was warm and friendly, while still keeping very professional and organized. She was very helpful in her suggestions for the service, as well as a wealth of knowledge about wedding planning in general. When I had a last minute addition, she didn't freak out, she just wrote it down and added it in as if it had been there all along. After the ceremony I got such great feedback from friends and family, about how she had done a wonderful job. She truly helped make the day special!
