Review: Awesome doesn't even cover it.

  • Joie was completely personable, very attentive and quite informative about everything. I was pleased to not only found such a fun lady to officiate my wedding, but to find someone who didn't make me or mine feel pressured. She didn't make me and my man feel like another customer, but like a friend as she took the time to get to know us. Definitely one awesome lady!
  • She was very helpful as I had a last minute freak out since my only bridesmaid was over two hours late. She kept an eye on my little girl and did well in trying to keep me calm while I scrambled with getting ready and trying to keep the flowers in my daughter's hair.
  • We had a not just a ring exchange but a unity candle and a breif handfasting. I really was in love with the way Joie did the handfasting at the end, making me and my Hubby literally tie the knot in front of our families.
  • Alot of the guests said they loved the inversion of the old school wedding rites as well as the obvious tidbits that were pulled from me and my husband. The close, personal touch to the ceremony made everyone soft.

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Joie was incredibly warm and flexible to our needs, including switching the date! She made sure to contact us with questions, and texted me close to the date just to reassure me.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? In addition to performing our ceremony, she orchestrated a photo shoot afterwards! She helped us with natural-looking poses. Joie is also very knowledgeable and comfortable with Asian traditions, which helped put me and my family at ease.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? Joie found literary passages and quotes that captured our relationship, and she went out of her way to include family.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? They were touched by this incredibly personal, tiny ceremony in my parents' back yard.

Review: Unique and Perfect Wedding!!!

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Joie is very personable. She came to our house shortly after we first contacted her so she could get to know us as a couple and to begin creating our wedding with us. Joie is knowledgeable about many religions and wedding traditions. We wanted our ceremony to involve as many religions as possible and were able to incorporate 8 different ones into our ceremony. She was a great source of comfort and support from the moment we contacted her until after the wedding. Joie was able to guide us and answer all of our questions. She is very relaxed and laid back, yet professional and caring. Her creativity made our wedding perfect and very special. One thing that I enjoyed was her idea on my bouquet; we bought a mixture of fresh flowers and put them in a pail of water. Before the ceremony each guest choose a flower to give to me as a walked down the aisle. The last few flowers given to me were red roses from my dad, mom and husband-to-be. The bouquet turned out to be very unique and special, as did the rest of our wedding.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Joie added many small things that made our wedding special. She gave us Buddhist prayer flags to hang over us during the ceremony and a bell she rang to announce the beginning of the ceremony, which are now very special to us as they symbolize our marriage. Joie went out of her way to make sure we were happy with every detail of the wedding she created. She forwarded her script to us of what she planned on saying and gave us a chance to tweak it as we desired. She added a beautiful beginning which was a surprise and much appreciated. She also brought me beautiful flowers on the day of the ceremony which matched the colors we choose. Everything Joie did was very thoughtful.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? My husband and I wrote our own vows and a close friend read a poem during the ceremony.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Everyone thought our wedding was beautiful and perfect! They thought it was very unique and had never been to a wedding like this one before. Our guests were impressed with the ceremony and how it incorporated so many religions and traditions. A few guests said it was the best wedding they have ever attended due to the uniqueness of it.

  • Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Joie took her time to really get to know us as a couple...and our family. She is so comforting, helpful, easy to speak with and thoughtful.
  • What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? She and my daughter texted one another a lot and came up with a surprise reading for us that was both funny and touching. She developed real relationships with us and our family and we can see her as being someone we would want to stay in touch with as a good friend and to be a part of other future celebrations for the rest of our lives.
  • How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We wrote our own vows, but Joie wrote our ceremony from scratch. Everything was unique and beautiful and fit us as a couple perfectly.
  • Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Everyone is asking for a copy of our ceremony and vows. They can't stop talking about it..so there is a favorite comment..it's all the same comments over and over! =)
