Review: The perfect officiant for us!

  • Making my wife and I comfortable was at the heart of what Jessie did from the very start. Personable and easy-going, from our very first conversation with Jessie, we knew we'd chosen correctly. And, seeing as I'm from the UK, communication could have been difficult. On the contrary, however - Jessie always made herself available so that both my wife and I could chat with her at an appropriate time.
  • Nothing. And I say that in the most positive way. We didn't want unexpected, we wanted communication between us to be such that everything was discussed in advance. It was, and went perfectly to plan.
  • At every step of the way, Jessie was at pains to allow us the room to alter, add, or delete parts of the ceremony. The couple are truly at the centre of what she does - at no point does ego get in the way of the couple creating a ceremony that is just right for them.
  • How pleasant the ceremony was, how smoothly it went, and how open and warm Jessie was as both officiant and person. Everybody was full of praise for the ceremony, and for how it went. Jessie was absolutely perfect for us!

  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? The ceremony was very personal and about us. It wasn't the boring ceremony that everybody has. We loved our ceremony so much. It was very special and I'm sure a lot of people will remember it. It was exactly what we wanted, and Jessie did an AMAZING job

  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? We knew that we didn’t want to a traditional church ceremony, but we weren’t sure what we wanted to do. We found Jessie, and it was the best decision we could have made for our ceremony! What an amazing ceremony!!! Words cannot even describe what a wonderful job Jessie did telling our story and making our wedding ceremony beautiful. Numerous people commented on the beauty of our ceremony. It was personal, well thought out, and exactly what we wanted. Jessie was always there to answer any of our questions and guided us in the right direction every time we were in need of direction. We would recommend her to officiate anyone’s ceremony! Absolutely Amazing!

Review: Warm, Genuine, & Best Officiant in NJ/NY!!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Yes! Jessie is such a warm, caring and compassionate person. When my fiance and I first met her we immediately felt excited to have met her but also right at home. Jessie makes you feel comfortable in her presence, she is a great listener and is helpful when we were unsure about decisions in other parts of our wedding!
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She brought our story out in a way that we most likely couldn't have expressed better in our own words. She understood what we wanted, what was important to us and the attention to detail in the ceremony was so touching.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We added a hand fasting ceremony, Cherokee Blessing, and Ring Warming.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Our story in the ceremony was funny and touching, that Jessie really "got us". Also, the presentation was effortless. Also people mentioned that Jessie was warm and showed genuine love and care for the bride and groom and what we really wanted out of the ceremony shined through.

Review: Jessie is your girl!!!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Yes. Jessie was terrific to work with. She was very professional. My wife and I did not have much information about what an official wedding ceremony should include and Jessie was very accomodating. She worked with us, being very aware of our needs, put together and delivered a wonderful ceremony.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Our wedding involved a blend of traditional American and Turksih cultures. M wife and I are Turkish and for our ceremony, we had family members from Turkey who were visiting. We wanted the ceremony to include traditional Turkish aspects and Jessie was very exciting to try and implement new things. She worked hard to make sure no detail was left to chance.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? They thought Jessie was perfect!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Jessie is amazing! She put us completely at ease. She never made us feel silly for not really knowing what we wanted. She guided us through the process and made suggestions, but mostly asked a lot of great questions.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Jessie had us fill out very extensive questionnaires. Some separate and some together. She talked to us for a long time to get to know us. She used journal entries, emails and the like in the ceremony. It felt incredibly personalized. Our
