The Perfect Wedding Celebrant for our Small Wedding

JP was the perfect wedding celebrant for our small wedding. She was very personable and professional when talking to us over the phone as she was getting to know us to write our vows. She made our whole family laugh and tear up when she was reading our personalized vows to us. It was a great experience and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant! Thank you JP for what you do!

Thank you 10 times over JP!

I called on a whim and she booked the venue the same day same conversation! I was uneasy that things would go well and she was there anytime to call or text and I received kind words. I change things hours before we started and she calmly made each change. We received such a blessing through JP and would recommend her over and over again. Professional, personal and everything we asked for! Thank you 10 times over JP!

Renewal Ceremony

JP came to our house to perform a renewal ceremony for us. No fanfare, no guests, no pictures, just an official yet simple service rededicating our commitment to each other. JP read several lovely quotes, a bible verse, and received our oaths. Exactly what we wanted. I do wish we had recorded the ceremony. It was that touching and worth preserving. It is obvious that JP loves what she does and personalized each and every event. I would (and will) recommend her to anyone who wants to make their special day extra special.

She went above and beyond!

We feel so fortunate to have found JP when we were looking for a wedding officiant! She truly enjoys what she does, and it shows. She went above & beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly & our day was perfect. She has the sweetest, brightest disposition & is so pleasant to work with. She takes her time to get to know the people she’s working with so that she can write vows that are special & specific to each couple; we loved the special vows she wrote for us! She also takes the time to explain every step of the process in detail, and she happily answers any questions you have. We couldn’t have been happier with her! I’ve already recommended her to people, and I know that other people who met her at our wedding have recommended her, as well!
