Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Janis' extensive experience is apparent and very comforting. I rode an emotional roller-coaster before my wedding and she was always available, her hand outstretched when I needed to grab on. When I wanted/needed to make last minute changes (in a panic) she calmly assured me that she would accommodate me. At which point I was able to relax......
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? What is so beautiful about the way that Janis officiates, is that it is so natural. And maybe most importantly, it is so personal. The ceremony is as unique as the couple is, which is why it is so special. And memorable. She makes everyone feel so comfortable. We had humorous moments, as well as tearful moments. It was so 'real'. Everyone felt free to express their emotions. Everyone was touched.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? The entire ceremony was personal. It was the story of our love and our relationship. Whenever I think about it, I still get choked up. It was truly one of the most beautiful days of my life.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Every single person told me that they were deeply moved by our ceremony. Countless friends and family said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. That it was very unique and memorable. I will always be grateful to Janis for making it happen.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Janis had us come out to her beautiful home to speak with her personally about our wedding ceremony. Immediately she made us feel welcome, and she understood our needs. She was attentive to the small details and kept track of everything in an organized manner. She was also easy to reach by phone and email and responded quickly.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Janis projects very well in an audience of 100+ guests. Also, the ceremony flowed nicely from one aspect to the next. Seamless!
