Unique, Personal, Beautifully Written & Spoken Ceremony
I'm tearing up just thinking about the eloquent and poignant ceremony Jen created for our wedding day. Jen is an absolute joy to work with. Every sit down we had with her we left feeling more confident. We enjoyed her company so much that we went on for hours each time and left feeling rejuvenated by her positive spirit. From the moment we met Jen we knew she was the perfect person for our big day. She made us feel comfortable and at ease and we knew we needed that presence while we were up in front of everyone. Jen is a gracious and talented speaker and strung together beautiful quotes along with an amazingly thoughtful background of our relationship. She really helped our guests feel involved in the ceremony and connected to each other and us. We had a mixture of folks in the audience and were surprised to hear some of our more conservative guests blown away by the ceremony and willing to lean in to the ceremonial smudging that we had. She also managed to create something so lovely that even my stoic father shed some tears. Jen took the time to really get to know us over the course of the process and I love that she wove a lot of our own words into the ceremony. It made everything so personal and representative of us. Jen is so poetic and offered the perfect balance of romance and magic and honesty to our ceremony. We wouldn't change a thing and are so grateful that we met Jen. I give the highest recommendation possible to Jen, her process and her work.Sent on 08/05/2019

Phenomenal....Jen gave us everything we didn't even know we could hope for
Wow....Jen gave everything to our wedding, we truly felt like the most important clients she's ever had. By the time Jen arrived in the bride room on my wedding day to check in with me and hug me, she felt like an old friend...a friend who knew me to the core, and was there to walk me to the threshold of my new life with my best friend. Jen took the time to learn about and understand my new husband and I as individuals and as a couple. She gave us an extraordinary ceremony that reflected our story, our values and our sense of humor. Our guests were delighted with the ceremony and many of them approached me to ask how long we've known each other, and they were all genuinely surprised to hear that we just found her on Wedding Wire just searching for an Officient. Jen gave us a stunning, memorable, and extraordinarily personal and unique ceremony. We couldn't be more honored and feel genuinely lucky to have found Jen, she was the absolute perfect person to join us together in ceremony. Jen will continue to be in our hearts, and, hopefully, as a friend in the future. We are grateful to her for what she gave us for the most important moments of our wedding day.Sent on 08/08/2019

No words can describe how amazing our Wedding Ceremony was- Jen created one of the most amazing moments of my life.
Jen is incredible- she puts into words all the emotions and feelings that you may not even be able to describe yourself in the most beautiful way. She is fun, professional, and so welcoming. She balances all forms of faith and backgrounds to create a ceremony that touches all who take part.Sent on 06/06/2019

Jen is wonderful!
Jen is absolutely wonderful!!! She was key to making our ceremony intimate and meaningful. Jen took a genuine interest in getting to know us and ensuring that the ceremony was exactly as we dreamed. I really appreciate the time and energy she took in guiding us through the planning process, and helping us select and draft our vows. Jen was also amazing during the ceremony when my toddler was having a meltdown. All of my guests raved about how wonderful Jen was and how special the ceremony was. I highly recommend Jen to any bride and groom, especially those who really want to personalize the ceremony. Our ceremony would not have been the same without her...and it was truly my favorite part of the day.Sent on 06/10/2019

If you’re seeking to have a meaningful ceremony, stop here.
Jen was amazing! Of all the vendors and everything we prepared for our wedding, everyone who offered any feedback commented first on how great the ceremony was. Jen asked us what kind of tone we wanted and how we wanted our guest to feel during the ceremony and delivered exactly that. She got to know us and our relationship very well and composed her words to reflect us. She totally superseded our expectations and set the tone for the rest of the night to make the joy of what we came to do carry on. Both my husband and HIGHLY recommend her if you’re goal is to have a meaningful ceremony.Sent on 03/31/2019

An Artist of Her Craft
Jennifer was meant to do the glorious work of officiating weddings. From the moment we spoke on the phone, I knew she was "the one." Her passion and dedication to love and the personal and special features of the relationship I have with my (now) husband is seen at every interaction with her. She is positive, yet real and authentic. She is serious and professional, yet funny and light-hearted to keep a good balance and set the energy for your big day, before and during.Sent on 11/14/2018
I can't tell you (bride/groom-to-be) how many people came up to as afterward and just sang her praises. Jennifer honored us and our family so well, and that means the world to us. I'm just in awe of how much warmth and love we were able to create between my husband, Jennifer, everyone involved, and myself. Jennifer made the very best day of our lives that much more magical and authentic. Her passion and dedication to the craft as well as us was just exactly what we needed to set the intentions of our marriage and life together.
Jennifer is a true gem, and I am honored to share our experience to continue spreading her gift and love around to others looking to do as exactly as she did for us and more.

AMAZING! When asked what my favorite part about our wedding was, my answer is the ceremony. Jennifer wrote and created a beautiful, personal and unique ceremony; it was beyond our wildest dreams. Our parents and guests also can not stop raving about the ceremony. Jennifer is truly a master at what she does.Sent on 08/08/2018
Our ceremony was so unique and it was very us; which was very important to us. It focused on our unique story and how we are choosing this journey together. Jennifer writes all her ceremonies from scratch and her writing is elegant and beautiful.
Jennifer takes a modern twist on some of the wedding traditions and these really spoke to us and aligned with our relationship and goals. For example, for our ceremony, Jennifer said "by the point of your words, we now pronounce you wife and husband." We liked the emphasis on our words and the use of the word "we" was very inclusive. It made perfect sense to us.
Jennifer was a great resource and was very helpful in the planning process. She helped us and reviewed our vows. Jennifer helped us with ideas for readings and rituals and ways to include our community. Jennifer suggested community vows; which were amazing!! The general idea is Jennifer asked our community if they will continue to support us in various ways, and they got the chance to say yes. She had them say things like, "We'll party with you," and "We've your back" instead of the boring "yes" or "we will." It was amazing and unique and so many of our people have continued to comment about how amazing it was.
We couldn't be happier with our ceremony and with Jennifer. Choosing to work with Jennifer was one of your best wedding planning decisions.

We had interviewed several officiants prior to meeting Jen. When we met Jen, we knew we had found the right officiant for us. Jen values the importance of ceremony as well as connecting with others. Jen took the time to get to know us, and to discover what made our relationship unique. She incorporated many personal details into our ceremony, making it uniquely ours. She was very responsive anytime we had questions, and she provided us with guidance and suggestions in regards to the ceremony process. Our ceremony was everything we had hoped it would be. Thank you, Jen, for making our day so incredibly special.Sent on 07/27/2018

We can't thank Jen enough for crafting such an amazing ceremony that not only captured exactly what we had in mind, but that holistically encapsulated our love and primed us for our future together as a married couple.Sent on 07/24/2018
Jen truly blew us away with her sincerest and most genuine intentions, and her ability to officiate in the most beautiful way possible. We can't imagine having worked with anyone else, and are forever grateful to her. She is truly one of a kind!
Shannon · Married on 06/29/2018
We cannot thank Jen enough for such a wonderful ceremony. We chose to get married without anyone else in attendance all the way in Colorado (we are from Illinois). Finding someone who would be understanding of our non traditional take on our wedding ceremony, while being long distance was difficult but we knew as soon as we found Jen that we were in good hands. She incorporated everything we wanted in our ceremony and was awesome enough to take a short hike to our location. It was our absolute pleasure to have had Jen be the one person we shared this special day with. Still in awe of how magical that day was.Sent on 08/21/2018

Our wedding planner used Small Circles for her officiant!
Our wedding planner chose Jen to officiate her own wedding, so we were confident about working with Jen even before our first phone call with her. Of all the people you rely on to help the magic shine during a wedding ceremony, Jen was one of the top performers, from beginning to end! Through a thoughtful, customized, interactive process, she crafted a truly meaningful and fun ceremony that fit our needs. Several people came up to me after our ceremony to express their compliments. We highly recommend Jen.Sent on 10/31/2018

We cannot say enough great things about Jen, she put so much into our ceremony. It was perfect and unforgettable. I knew she was going to do a fantastic job after our first conversation, we felt an instant connection to her. We are so happy she did our ceremony for us and made it something so special!Sent on 07/10/2018
Brianna · Married on 05/29/2018
Our wedding was small & intimate & we had only two hopes for the day--1. That we would get married with the mountains of Colorado surrounding us & 2. That we would be surrounded by the people that loved us the most. We had never met Jen until the day of our wedding, but I can truly say it felt as though Jen had known us and supported our love from the very beginning. It just felt like she belonged there with us. She started the evening off with a huge comforting hug & a gentle smile, and wrapped up the ceremony in the very same way. Although she has done this for many beautiful couples, she made us feel that our love story was the most magical and special one to ever exist. She captured our story & embraced our personalities in the sweetest words & made our hearts feel so full. I can say without hesitation, Jen is the absolute best thing to happen to us throughout all of our wedding planning. Our ceremony was the most incredible moment and our family still gets teary eyed talking about it even months later. I cannot imagine a more perfect wedding day, and Jen is absolutely the reason that I can say that. We absolutely adore her and cannot stress enough how much you would too.Sent on 07/22/2018

Going into wedding planning, we weren't excited about the ceremony part of the night. Within ten minutes of meeting Jen, we were inspired by her enthusiasm and passion for ceremony. She showed us that it didn't have to be boring, but instead, it could be spiritual and meaningful in so many other ways. We knew she was going to make our ceremony something special, and she definitely delivered. It was hands down the best part of our wedding, and we had so many comments from our guests on how special it was. We owe all of that to Jen and the process and suggestions she offered on making the ceremony exactly what we wanted. What the ceremony ended up being will always be a gift and a special memory we have.Sent on 06/16/2018
Amanda · Married on 01/04/2018
Jen was absolutely amazing. We could not have asked for a more perfect ceremony on our big day. She did such a beautiful job making the ceremony unique, moving, and truly perfect all around. We received so many compliments from our family and friends about the ceremony, some even saying it was the best ceremony they have ever been a part of! Jen was there for us every step of the way before our big day and truly took the time to get to know us in order to create the perfect and totally “us” ceremony. She has touched our lives forever and we feel so lucky to have found her.Sent on 02/22/2018

What an incredible experience we had with Jen from start to finish. We witnessed her officiating a friend's wedding and could not be happier with how she curated our love story and how she delivered our ceremony for our intimate wedding on NYE. Meeting with Jen months prior to the wedding was always a joy - we really felt like she understood us and the tone we wanted to set for our important rite of passage. She was flexible throughout the duration and was inspiring! Guests from our wedding, to this day, are still talking about how unique and special our ceremony was - it left people with a newly appreciated view of their own love and what it means to become husband and wife (wife/wife - husband/husband). I could not recommend Jennifer more.Sent on 02/21/2018
Bex · Married on 12/09/2017
All I really need to say about Jen is that she is INCREDIBLE! She listened to our story, took the time to get to know our values and what we visioned for our wedding, and provided us with with amazing suggestions. After only a phone conversation with my husband and I, Jen came up with the most magical and meaningful wedding ceremony. She captured who we are perfectly with a personal ceremony that reflected our personalities to a tee. I never thought I would enjoy a wedding ceremony that much, it was more than either of us could have ever imagined! Our family members also said that it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever seen. Our ceremony was light-hearted (which was what we asked for), intimate, there was laughter and tears, and was 100 times better than I visioned in my mind. Without Jen, our day wouldn't have been nearly as special. Jen is just amazing!Sent on 01/14/2018

Jen was an amazing officiant, she created a beautiful ceremony for us that was personal and perfect. Our wedding day was wonderful, and we tell everyone it was because we chose Jen to officiate the ceremony and our awesome photographer. Jen took the time to get to know us and weaved our story into a beautiful ceremony that was filled with love and laughter. Jen is truly a wonderful person and we feel so lucky to have had her be a part of our day.Sent on 11/27/2017

Jenn was simply fantastic and absolutely perfect for the style of wedding we were wanting. We wanted a respectfully non-religious wedding ceremony and Jenn absolutely nailed it. All of our attendants absolutely raved about our ceremony, saying it was so unique, personal and emotion–exactly what we wanted. Jenn is somebody who truly cares about her clients. I could just tell she was personally invested in our relationship from the day we met to our wedding day and hereafter. She was accommodating, creative and genuinely a joy to work with. I would recommend her to anybody who is trying to focus on the ceremony aspect of their wedding and cares about making an impact on everybody witnessing such a monumental and beautiful event.Sent on 12/06/2017
Abbie · Married on 09/25/2017
Jen truly has a gift when it comes to making ceremonies special. She spent time with us a couple months before the wedding day to make sure she understood our relationship and what we were looking for, and patiently answered any and all questions we had. Jen reviewed our vows ahead of time to make sure that we had a similar tone and vibe to them, and we worked together to create an amazing ceremony. It was sentimental, but she weaved in light moments, and came up with some wonderful ideas to include.Sent on 10/07/2017
I've been recommending Jen to anyone and everyone, and couldn't imagine our ceremony with anyone else. Our guests loved her, too, and many told us it was the best ceremony they've ever attended!

Working with Jennifer Garone in Boulder, Colorado was a truly joyful experience. Our wedding officiant met with us in person before the wedding to get to know us in person, learn about our spiritual background, hear personal stories we gave her freedom to use in the wedding ceremony, and determine all the particulars regarding the type of service and the "words" we requested her to use. We felt immediately connected with Jennifer's professionalism and her genuine interest in facilitating the most beautiful day of our lives. She also followed up with us after the meeting in timely fashion when we had additional questions or wanted to further discuss all the options available to us. At the ceremony itself, Jennifer helped everyone to feel comfortable in our sacred space and she performed the service flawlessly. We feel truly blessed to have found Jennifer who is now a true friend of ours for life. We would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for a compassionate, caring, professional to make their wedding truly special.Sent on 11/17/2017

Look no further. BOOK THIS WOMAN!!! :) I searched for our officiant via Wedding Wire. I scrolled through quite a few until Jennifer's reviews and her description of herself stopped me in my tracks. We got those same comments that guests assumed she was an old friend because she knew so much about us and we were so comfortable with her.Sent on 09/19/2017
Jennifer did not just go through the motions. She customized our ceremony to be like nobody else's. It was joyful, fun, meaningful, and so us. She gave us great guidance, but was very flexible and thoughtful about ways to incorporate any ideas of our own.
One example of her suggestion is that we stood in a circle of flowers that guests placed as a sort of floral blessing. That was her idea. We loved it and it was just beautiful. I wish I could attach a photo here.
I miss talking with her now that our wedding is over!

Jennifer did an awesome job with our wedding. she was extremely flexible and willing to work with us on what we wanted. She was also willing to drive to Colorado Springs from the Denver area to conduct our wedding. I would recommend her to my family and friends for their wedding.Sent on 11/06/2017

We found Jennifer by searching around in the Boulder area for someone who could help make our special day even more special. Jennifer was very helpful with providing suggestions on ways to make our vows our own. And she did an amazing job of weaving the information we both provided her into the ceremony helping to make everything very personal and very special. She is marvelous!!Sent on 09/13/2017

Everyone loved her and how beautifully she had woven together a ceremony that truly represented our personalities. Plus, we want to be friends with her forever. We love Jen!Sent on 08/03/2017
