Joanna was wonderful. She made us both feel very comofortable and was a pleasure to work with. With all the changes that needed to be made, we are so glad we got to keep our wedding date so that we could have Joanna officiate our wedding.
The ceremony was just what we wanted. Something quick and easy and was exactly what fit our personality.
That they had no clue there was a street fair going on the next street over. Joanna was wonderful at our outdoor ceremony and everyone could hear her.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Joanna went out of her way to make sure we were ready for the ceremony. We reviewed the ceremony as a group several times while the ceremony was being developed. She checked in with us before the ceremony began to ensure that we were ready. We had a small gathering (about 15 people), and she made it a point to meet everyone and get to know them.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? We developed the ceremony together, so there weren't any surprises. She was very personable and knew when to hold the attention and when to put it back upon us. I wouldn't say that was a surprise though, as I was confident in Joanna's warmth and personality right from the get go.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Joanna sent us several sample ceremonies to help us develop our own. We wrote our own ceremony, and Joanna gave us suggestions along the way, including advice on logistical issues. She incorporated our suggestions beautifully, while still guiding us through the process of writing our own ceremony, which can be daunting.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Our guests at our wedding all loved Joanna. She joined us for dinner after the ceremony and slid into conversation with everyone with ease. We invited Joanna back just this year to help us renew our vows, and she handled that crowd (now about 80) beautifully. The guests all loved the ceremony and thought that Joanna did a wonderful job.
