    Jemelle was perfect! Professional, friendly, and a joy to have officiate our wedding! She responded immediately to my questions, arrived early, and her services are VERY reasonably priced. Would highly recommend her without any reservations.

    I contacted Jemelle last Friday, and today we're married. She makes the process stress free and we are thankful for that.

    One thing certain was that we picked a great person to officiate our wedding! Jemelle, what can I say, she answered every question responded ever so quickly to all of my text, calls, and emails. She reassured me that my questions and nerves were nothing usually and not to worry. She played a key role in The Bishop’s Love Story on 8/5/17! From the first call we had to the ending self we took Jemelle was awesome, professional and down to earth! Delois and I thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts! We will be recommending you every chance we get!

    Thank you,
    Delois and Tabitha Bishop

    We just had the quick signing of the license, so our interaction was super simple and quick. She responded immediately to my emails and we were able to setup a convenient time and place quickly... this was most important to me. Everyone else online seems so complicated and like they want to throw a big shindig for you... and so many people like me just need an officiant to seal the deal.

    What can I say, we LOVED Jemelle! Not only did she write a beautiful ceremony that fit perfectly for my husband and I, but she really took the time to get to know us. She was very considerate when asking our preferences on how we would like to be pronounced etc. She was well spoken, poised, kind and kept it very lighthearted.

    My husband and I consider ourselves to be very liberal and it was important to me to make adjustments to a traditional ceremony. We didn't want any mention of god or religion. I did not want to be asked "who gives this bride away". We asked to not be referred to as man and wife, but as husband and wife. While it may seem that these are arbitrary requests, it was something that meant a lot to my husband and I that Jemelle was so considerate and obliged to not include these items.

    If you're looking for someone that goes above and beyond to make your ceremony tailored specifically to you, look no further!

    Jennelle was very good. She made day very exciting and less stressful. She was very informative. If you decide to book her just tell her your needs and she will take of the rest.

    We loved Jemelle Wooten. She helped us write our own ceremony and vows, and came to our house to meet with us ahead of time, which made us very comfortable that she was the perfect person to marry us.

    So I was held responsible for finding someone to marry my wife and I. I had been searching day in and day out. I finally came across Jemelle's website and less than 5 minutes I said to myself "she is marrying us". So I spoke to my wife about she and her services. My wife was instantly intrigued as well. So of course we met up discussed services and my wife's and I history. Thereafter, we were more comfortable with the decision we made. Overall from the beginning to the "I do's" Jemelle was very punctual, communicative, professional, patient, and down to earth. My wife and I have already made the decision to have her again when we renew our vows. Thank you Jamelle and Maya!

    Jamelle was pleasant, professional and a joy to work with. We opted not to exchange vows (because of wanting to wait for the larger ceremony) and did a sand ceremony in its place. She was very accommodating to providing a unique wedding experience to incorporate this aspect. I love how no two ceremonies are alike because they are specifically made for you and your spouse. Everything was made easier due to the fact she keeps in constant contact with you throughout the process. Jamelle is also readily available to answer any questions you may have. She made me feel at ease and that meant a lot.
    I highly recommend Jamelle Wooten to officiate your ceremony.

    Jemelle was very flexible in how we wanted the ceremony done. She was quick to reply and easy to get in touch with. After meeting with her, we knew we made the right decision in selecting her to be our officiant. She is laid back, easy to talk to, and has a cheery, positive demeanor. She did an amazing job the day of the wedding, we couldn't have found a better person for the job. Thank you so much!!

    Jemelle Wooten was the perfect person for our event. We were looking for a non-religious, quick-hitch ceremony. No fuss, no mess. Being south of Macon, many of the judges in these smaller counties are no longer preforming any marriages. (How the- whhaaaa!?!) I called Jemelle on Friday. I was able to explain our situation, ask about rates, and come to a contract all within two hours! Our accommodations were very last minute (we scheduled our ceremony two days later on the following Sunday), but she was more than happy to legalize our union. My fiancé-- sorry, husband and I are so happy with her services. Do not let distance stop you from meeting her. Jemelle is the first true officiant that understand and respects the true definition of marriage - bringing any and all people together. I cannot stress this enough - pick her. You will not be disappointed.

    Happy to learn that they do not only service same sex marriages. Responds very quickly to questions and concerns. Made us feel very comfortable and easy about the ceremony. Arrived early, stuck to the schedule, and gave us a head ups in case we didn't read the email she sent 2-3 days after signing The contract. Very pleased with her services!

    Jemelle was prompt, personable and professional. The ceremony could not have gone more smoothly or been more pleasant. I cannot recommend Jemelle highly enough. Early on, from the very first contact with her, she was responsive and very communicative. I was having a difficult time finding someone and am so please I found Jemelle!!

    So glad we chose The Modern Officiant to preside over our special day! From our initial contact through the event day, everything was handled very professionally. Jemelle fulfilled every request and also gave suggestions to make our ceremony pop. We felt our ceremony was personalized just for us! We made the perfect choice for our officiant!

    Jemelle Wooten was awesome! I sent her the vows I wanted and mentioned that I needed more for the ring exchange and she sent me recommendations that fit in perfectly with what I had so far. When I arrived at the hotel lobby to meet her, she was so joyful and at the same time calming. It was a real pleasure to have her as our officiant, I can't recommend her enough! :) My wedding day was perfect, and she was a part of that.
