Rev. Judy did not show up for the meeting!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy seemed personable when my husband originally hired her but she did not make us comfortable to use her services when she did not show up for the August 19th meeting that she set up. She did not call, text or anything. She simply didn't show up.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She did not show up to the meeting. We didn't expect her to not be at the meeting location.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

N/A..see comments above. We were married in Tahoe but hired her to do a second ceremony for family which did not happen because Judy did not show up for the meeting and there was not time to find someone else. The meeting date was Aug. 19th and the date of our second ceremony was to be 9/6

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We ended up not having the vowe renewal ceremony that we had planned because two weeks prior to the date Judy did not show up for the one and only meeting we were supposed to have prior to the date.

Look No Further

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I was comfortable with Rev. Judy from our first phone conversation. It was then that I knew I need look no further. From that initial phone call to our first meeting and beyond, I always felt Judy truly cared about making our day a special one. She was so attentive, warm, personal and professional. She never made us feel rushed. In fact, it was just the opposite...she spent time getting to know us as if she were a friend.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

As we had only 2 weeks to plan our wedding, my expectations were small. So everything Rev.Judy provided was unexpected. She turned what I thought was going to be just slightly above a Justice of the Peace ceremony at the courthouse into such a romantic and enchanting event that anyone would have thought had been planned for months. To name just a few additions that happened because of Rev. Judy...
1. She suggested the venue that was absolutely perfect as it incorporated remembrances of our first date.
2. She helped us personalize our vows and the entire ceremony.
3. She provided the most beautiful photos capturing the joy we felt on that day.
4. She LISTENED to us and made sure that the day was all about us and what we wanted and what reflected our personalities.
5. Her fees are much lower than the services she provides. Rev. Judy is worth her weight in gold!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Thanks to Rev. Judy, we incorporated the wine box ceremony, personalized vows, a poem written by my son, and a beautiful reading from a last minute guest.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

This is the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen! (Without Rev. Judy's input and guidance, this comment and many others would not have been possible.)

More than an officiant

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

She was so calming and reassuring. She was organized. Plus she was open minded to all the crazy ideas I threw at her!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She didn't freak out when I said I don't want a traditional ceremony. I wanted personalized vows to be later followed by Dr Seuss vows. Including my ring vows! She played the part perfectly. She came prepared to do whatever was needed, including bridesmaids and flower girls hair when a stylist didn't show.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

The whole ceremony was written just for us. She even found time for all the readings everyone wanted to do, even when my mother in law literally picked a book. She helped us think of some things outside the box to really personalize our ceremony. We did a wine box ceremony and I can't wait til our first year is up and I get to open it and share my letter with my husband.

The Perfect Wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

She was very personable, funny and had many great ideas for us based on the information we gave her.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Our 2 dogs accidentally got out of the house and were very excited to quickly become part of the ceremony (we got married in our back yard). They were a little too excited and let's just say, putting on quite a show. Rev. Judy just rolled with it and incorporated them right into our ceremony. Everyone was laughing and she made it appear as though the whole thing was planned that way.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

My husband and I ended up writing our own vows because no vows that we tried to find could put into words how we feel about each other. We both felt that the vows were the most important part of our wedding.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone liked that our wedding was so personalized and unique to us. It was held in our back yard under our gazebo. We served wine and beer to the guests as they arrived so they could be comfortable during the ceremony. This was a BIG hit. Also, everyone commented on how personable Rev. Judy was. She fit right in like she was part of the family.

A Blessing!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes. I am a little apprehensive when it comes to standing in front of a group of people, even my closest friends and family and getting married is emotional to begin with, without all the eyes! Rev. Judy created a ceremony that was "us" and kept me at ease. She is approachable and friendly, but professional!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She had a table for our sand ceremony! We were completely without a table and as soon as she arrived, she simply said "I have the solution for that". She carries a beautiful little table around in her trunk for just such emergencies!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We incorporated a lasso ceremony, a tradition of Latin America (my husband's heritage). It was Rev. Judy's idea, and it was a fantastic one!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My uncle, an army reservist whom I've never seen show a sign of emotion, teared up a bit at the beauty of our ceremony.

Loved her!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, very comfortable, everything was organized and she suggested things when we weren't sure.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I loved the unique ideas she had, for example we did a wine blending, which I had never seen before. I love being different and not do the same things everyone else does.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

As I said above the wine blending and also our unique vows.

Special Person for your special day!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

What can I say about Rev. Judy? On a cold January Sunday, she gave my husband and I the most amazing personalized ceremony. We worked with her in a short time frame, she made a special trip to our hotel to review our ceremony, and wrote the most beautiful ceremony ever. We were not your typical bride and groom, and we wanted only a small part of the traditional ceremony. Rev Judy incorporated our wishes and helped us create a love-filled ceremony. When we renew our vows in 36 years, we truly hope she'll be around to do it all over again! Positive, caring and goes way above and beyond the call of duty.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She greeted every single one of our guests, made our families feel comfortable and joined right in with our celebration!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Short, simple, sweet...

Everyone complimented her on the most amazing attire she wore! Fit in perfectly with our Scottish/Irish themed wedding.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy put us at ease from day 1. She made sure to get to know us and not make us just another wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The ceremony was totally personalized.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wrote our own vows and asked Rev. Judy to modify some other things that we found.

Rev. Judy captured "us" in the ceremony.

Best Officiant Ever!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy was better than my husband and I could have ever asked. Not only did she make our ceremony comfortable, she made it unique to what we wanted. She came with ideas that I had never seen before (chocolate and wine ceremony) and we received SO many compiments on how perfect our ceremony was.
Judy guided us through the entire process, making sure our ceremony was designed just for us. I could not be happier with our selection for an officiant.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

The whole planning process was unexpected. Her duty to make sure our day was exactly what we wanted went far and above anything I imagined an officiant would do.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We added so many personal touches--a Ketubah, wrote our own vows, added a wine and chocolate ceremony--all without making the ceremony drag on and on. It was PERFECT.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

More than one guest came up to say just how beautiful our vows were and how original the wine and chocolate ceremonies were (both Judy's ideas). Perfectly fantastic.

I would recommend Rev. Judy to anyone and everyone

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy did an amazing job, and never once made me or my groom or our families and friends feel even slightly uncomfortable. She was very understand in my wants and even sent me numerous emails to ensure that we had the perfect vows for our wedding ceremony that fit us as a couple.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

While I hadnt requested it in advance, her and her husband where kind enough to take some photos for us since in the haste of the day it seemed as though most of our friends and family forgot their cameras or had to rely on their camera phones!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Rev. Judy helped us personalize our ceremony by helping us select vows that where less than traditional, but right up the alley of who we are and what we wanted. Along with this I did request that Rev Judy wear one of her more theatrical outfits and she hit the nail on the head with her choice of attire and it helped add to the entire feel of our small ceremony in the park on a semi gloomy fall day with beautiful foliage all around us.

Wonderful!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy met with us a few times before our wedding to go over every detail of our wedding. Which was great. She made sure everything was done just like we wanted it to be.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She made sure every word that was said during the ceremony was picked out by us. She let us add and change anything and was helpful to make everything just right:)

Went above and beyond, was wonderful!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy was very professional and eager to answer all of our questions and to meet all our wants and needs. She took the time to talk with us about exactly what kind of ceremony we wanted and had wonderful suggestions and ideas about how we could personalize our special day. She also took the time to get to know us as a couple and to make us feel like she really wanted to make our day special.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She suggested that we give gifts to our parents for showing their support and that was a very special touch that everyone loved. She also took the time to create a very special and beautiful commitment ceremony certificate for us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We gave gifts to our parents, had a hand fasting, and had some personal poems in our ceremony.

Rev. Judy makes dream wedding possibly!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Judy put me completely at easy from the moment we sat down together. She is so kind and informative we knew, immediately, that she was who we wanted to marry us!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She made an amazing stole (I hope I am using that correctly) that fit the theme of my wedding just perfectly and it looked amazing! She was also always only a call away if I needed anything so her service is truly amazing bc she really cares about making your day perfect.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Everything about our wedding was personalized at the Newport Aquarium so the ceremony was no different. Rev. Judy really got to know my husband and I and personalized our entire ceremony to fit us and who we are. She also has so much knowledge and experience that not only could I call her up to ask her about the ceremony but I could ask about flowers, food, vendors, and everything else! She helped me in so many ways throughout the entire process AND made the ceremony PERFECT!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

I am still getting texts and calls from my friends and family saying that the ceremony was just beautiful and they loved how Rev. Judy truly portrayed our love and relationship. You can't ask for more than that!

Just what we were looking for!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Very much so, our initial meeting with Rev. Judy went great. She asked us some questions to get to know us as well as gave us some info about herself. She is very personable so it was easy to talk to her on what we were looking for an officiant/ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Her experience/advice helped us a lot, especially during the rehearsal. I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted it to happen so she helped make it go very smoothly. The actual ceremony was wonderful, better than expected. We received a lot of comments afterward that it was a really great ceremony, some said the best they've experienced.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Both of us didn't want to write our vows (my husband hates writing lol) and didn't really know what we wanted to include with our ceremony. We knew that we wanted one section from the bible read, Rev. Judy included a few poems which really made the ceremony special. She also kept it at the time length we're were looking for which was great.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Many guests told me afterwards that they absolutely loved the wedding ceremony, how great the officiant was and how neat the sand ceremony was.

She was willing to Dress up for our Halloween Wedding and that added the special touch to our ceremony, that as well as a customized ceremony.

A Shakespearean Renaissance Wedding made perfect!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I met Rev. Judy at a bridal show that my mom drug me to. I knew upfront that i wasn't going to find ANYTHING at the bridal show since i was having a very non traditional wedding....then i ran into Rev Judy. She was dressed in Renaissance attire and had numerous pictures of different weddings she has done. I knew from that moment she would be the perfect person for my wedding. As I worked with Rev. Judy she embraced my ideas which made me so comfortable.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

My mom and I pulled up to the park where my wedding was and i look out my window and she is dressed in costume all white complete with a white wig, at first I thought it was another bride and then i realized it was her. I was impressed that she was willing to have a little fun with my wedding.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Considering that my wedding was a "Shakespearean Renaissance Faerie Wedding" everything was personalized. She helped me with my ceremony and even suggested that we include a prayer in elvish, she even purchased a book so she can translate it. She also would check on my planning process before the wedding and she found out that i had an issue with my wedding dress because it was being made by a friend; she offered to help me get it finished with her sewing machine if i couldn't find someone. That was the nicest gesture.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My guests loved her. She was very reliable and had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend her for any wedding.

Wonderful

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely, Rev. Judy is awesome. She is so easy to talk to, and has a great sense of humor. She was open to all of the details my husband and I wanted in our wedding ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

LOL. My husband and I still talk about this. When she was addressing the guests regarding my husband. She referred to him as the "Dashing" Michael. It was so perfect! I don't think I have told her how much we enjoyed that ! :)

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We had a non-traditional wedding. Rev. Judy took notes during our meeting before the ceremony and preformed it just how we wanted. Also, my mother passed away 3 weeks before the wedding. Rev. Judy took a moment in the ceremony to remember my mother, and spoke of her how I would speak of her. That too was perfect.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Definitely the "dashing" Michael comment, and how Rev. Judy spoke of my mother. Rev. Judy is a laid-back person with a business attitude. (if that makes sense) She is very organized, easy to talk to, and answers any questions quickly.
