    Hey there review readers! I was a Groom yesterday at a wedding in which Jemelle was the officiant. If you are searching for the perfect officiant, a flexible professional who is interested in catering to all of your visions of ceremony, stop reading and call Jemelle. The number of compliments I received on selecting her for our wedding was abundant. Jemelle is an excellent communicator, certainly helped me feel at ease and was the perfect blend of solemnity and humor. Call her now before she gets really famous and is booked for the next year!

    Jemelle was so easy to work with and helped me and my husband feel very comfortable about the whole process. She was ready to lend a helping hand with writing our vows when we needed it and struck a perfect balance between serious and light-hearted! I highly recommend Jemelle!

    I am absolutely pleased with everything Jemelle did! The night before our ceremony Jemelle attend our rehearsal dinner to meet and greet our family, we loved how friendly and personable she was. The ceremony was beautiful! We chose to have her write our vows and that was the best decision ever!!!! Her words described the love & admiration my husband & I share. Everything we wanted to say to each other & was not able to formulate into words, She without a doubt expressed!! Thank you Jemelle for helping to make our special day so memorable! We keep watching the ceremony over & over again!! When we renew our vows a couple of years from now, you must be apart of it!!!

    Jemelle was amazing. We had a vision of our day in our mind and she nailed it and us in her speech. She's attentive to everything and is so in tuned with us that we now consider her family. If you are looking for an amazing officiant I would recommend her before all others. From the first meeting she surpassed every expectation.

    To call our experience "Luck" is an understatement !!! We were graced with the presence of the Jemelle better known as the modern officiant and not only did she go over and beyond her actual duties of an officiant, but she made us feel like she had been with us from the beginning of our wedding journey. We considered 3 other officiants prior to us choosing her and all I can say is fate brought us all together. If I could suggest the Modern Officiant for any type of wedding, from your traditional ceremony down to an intimate setting between yourself and your spouse, she is the definition of a class act ! We are forever grateful ;) she will always be held near and dear to our hearts. And last but not least, we got to meet her stunning wife!!!

    Jemell was excellent and accommodating to our needs. She added a lightness to the ceremony with a little humor and had a good read on us without much interaction prior to the event. I highly recommend her.

    Jemelle was so amazing! She was always super responsive to my calls and emails and oh so personable! Her wife joined us for the rehearsal and the ceremony and my husband and I just really clicked with them. Jemelle tailored our ceremony to fit our wishes perfectly. I just cannot praise her enough. She also sent me wonderful information about the name change process which was such a thoughtful touch. We very much enjoyed her.

    Jemelle was filled with so much positive energy from the very beginning. Besides taking time to customize our wedding, she was above all patient with all the obstacles that I faced to try to surprise my wife. Because of her my wife had a beautiful ceremony and birthday.

    I would definitely recommend Jemelle as a Wedding Officiant. She was prompt in responding, following up, and staying in touch throughout the entire planning process. She asked us to provide information that she then used in the vows for our ceremony. It was truly a pleasure working with her during this whole stressful time. We really enjoyed the ceremony she performed and would highly recommend her to any couples needing guidance through this process.

    Jamelle was the perfect fit for everything that we wanted and needed to make our special day memorable. After our first meeting we were sold. There was no other officiant for us. I would recommend Jamelle with no hesitation. Thank you again Jamelle, The Russell's are forever grateful.

    We were so blessed to have Jemelle be a part of our wedding! We knew from the moment we chatted with her on FaceTime that she would be the perfect person to perform our ceremony. She is incredibly professional but fit the vibe of our laid back wedding so easily. We had some technical difficulties with the microphone she was supposed to have for the ceremony and she handled it beautifully without missing a beat!

    We obtained a quick response to our inquiry. She was flexible with our initial consultation and times. She was prompt. When she have a date and time for her services she was always prompt. She made suggestions that truly enhanced our experience for the better. Professional,polite,and prompt. We couldn't have done any better. If I didn't know better she could have been performing dual roles one as a planner because I saw her direct a few people in the party! We are grateful and a big THANK YOU!

    Very open minded, helpful, quick to answer, and amazing content self written. My ceremony was amazingly beautiful and well written. Many compliments on the script and on choosing such an amazing Officiant. She loved my unique unity ceremony. Loved my dogs in the ceremony. Was open minded to any changes I made to make my wedding mine and she reflected that in the script. Truely amazing and I loved working with Mrs. Wooten. I recommend her completely!

    Absolutely amazing. I actually met her through a Wedding Expo they were hosting at my job. She helped make our wedding ceremony everything we could have ever dreamt it to be. Although it was last minute and we we were both late, she was very patient with us and did an exceptional job. She's actually marrying one of our friends in May, and I'm sure many many more.

    Jemelle was absolutely amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better officiant to be a part of our big day and not just a figurehead. We were really able to get to know Jemelle on a personal level and she is an incredible person. Very understanding, responsive, easy to work with, and just an all around wonderful experience. We only got compliment after compliment of the great work Jemelle did! Additionally, she was able to provide us some really great ideas to incorporate into our wedding that many of the guest want to incorporate into their lives as well! Needless to say I foresee a lot more business going her way! Thank you so much for making our day incredible!
