    Fabulous!

    We were fortunate to have Joanne write and officiate our wedding ceremony in late August of 2022. We could not be more thrilled to have worked with her as she created the most perfect experience for us. We continue to have endless comments from our guests that our ceremony was one of the most unique and special ceremonies that they have ever witnessed. She really took the time to personalize our script and make it that much more meaningful for us. We are forever grateful to Joanne and would absolutely recommend her services.

    Circles and Ceremonies's reply:

    Hello Dianne and Alex,
    Your wedding was sooo special - thank you for inviting me to officiate. What a joy!!
    Namaste!

    Very professional and well organized

    Personalized to a 'T.'

    During and following our intimate wedding of 50 (approx.) people, I had a handful of people inquire who our Officiant was and how to connect with her. Mentioning that our ceremony was so personal. Without Joanne's guidance and professionalism, our wedding would not have been as touching as it was. We also were not aware of the legal process and how to navigate the ceremony. These were all questions she was well equipped to answer. Joanne worked with us and our hectic schedules. For 3 months. I plan to hire her again in the future and you should too. It'll be the best decision you make for a vendor.

    Circles and Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you Stephanie and Ryan for your very kind and generous words. It was a true joy to help you create a wedding ceremony that fit you perfectly. I wish you both the very best for a wonderful future together.

    Personalized & Meaningful

    Not only did Joanne create a meaningful ceremony and beautiful vows tailored to us, but she made sure to speak with everyone involved to ensure our ceremony went off without a stitch. Thank you Joanne for making our special day so wonderful and something we will never forget and cherish!

    Circles and Ceremonies's reply:

    Thank you Kimberly and Colin,
    Your wedding was so very special, and I very much enjoyed working with you to create something uniquely you.
    I wish you both the very, very best!

    A beautiful ceremony

    As soon as we met Joanne, we felt comfortable and knew she would be perfect to perform our ceremony. Joanne really asked all the right questions to personalize our ceremony and was very open to any changes we had. She gave us great advice and suggestions for our ring exchange and for our vows and was accommodating in every way. A rehearsal is so necessary and Joanne made it flow so well; we were very thankful for her expertise! Our guests raved about the ceremony and how it was one of the nicest ones they have ever attended. Joanne really was an integral part of making our day so special and we are thankful to her!

    Circles and Ceremonies's reply:

    Hello Lorraine and Shane,
    Thank you sincerely for your kind review. I loved officiating your wedding, and truly wish you both a wonderful future together!
