    Wonderful experience

    We had the pleasure of Janet doing our legal ceremony in our intimate backyard wedding. Our nerves were very high as Covid had put many speed bumps in the road for our wedding, Janet had such a calm energy and helped up us at ease & laughed with us on the little mishaps we were having. Would recommend 1000%, super quick with responses and put together beautiful vows for us to choose from.

    Janet Has a Way with Words

    Due to Pandemic issues we had to change the date of the wedding 3 times and she was patient with it all.
    She was understanding and easy to speak too.

    The Minister of our Dreams

    Janet was an amazing minister, she set the mood for the ceremony with the tone in her voice which was incredibly romantic and relaxing. She accommodated every aspect of our ceremony that we envisioned with no hesitation. She was very informative of the process to obtain the marriage license, submission, and wedding certificate. Janet is professional, lovely to work with, punctual, and reliable.
    **100% recommend**

    Absolutely Amazing Experience

    We are forever grateful to have had Janet officiate a truly perfect wedding ceremony for us! Janet delivered exactly what was requested, with genuine kindness, and a level of professionalism above and beyond our expectations. During wedding preparations, Janet always responded promptly to my emails, and was very helpful with answering all of my questions. I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant, for such a significant day!
