    Personalized Experience!

    Jacqueline was such a joy to work with! She met with us before our big day to learn more about us and craft our ceremony into something completely unique for us. We wanted to write our own vows, but didn't know where to start, and Jacqueline really helped to organize our thoughts and prepare our vows in an completely unique way. There were tons of laughs and tons of tears, we are so happy to have found Jacqueline! If you're looking for a completely special and unique celebration, Jacqueline will excel!

    Best love celebrant ever!

    Getting married can be one of the most stressful times of one's life, you want the day to be perfect. Trying to find the right officiant is very difficult, especially when you decide you want your wedding during the Christmas Holidays. My husband and I were referred to Jacqueline through our photographer, for which we will be eternally grateful. We live in a different city to Jacqueline, but her hard work and dedication had our wedding preparation go over so smoothly. We could not have wished for a better lady to help make our special day so amazing. Jacqueline had a Skype meeting with us, and from just a simple conversation, she captured our fondest memories as a couple, and created the most personal and heartwarming ceremonies we could have hoped for. Thank you Jacqueline!

    Jacqueline Hoare's reply:

    James and Stephen, it was so fun marrying you two in the cold winter air in the beautiful Rocky Mountains! Your love kept us all warm! Thank you for your kind words . . . you are a very special couple!

    Jacqueline did a phenomenal job with our wedding ceremony. She was able to incorporate specific parts of our lives that really demonstrated our relationship vs. simply reciting a script. We got many compliments on our service and those compliments were largely regarding the personal nature of the service and Jacqueline's ability to bring our guests into our story. Her sense of humour, calming demeanour, and genuine interest in making our day special meant a lot to my husband and I. Jacqueline promptly responded to our questions and made our wedding day that much more special.

    Best Officiant Ever!

    Jacqueline was recommended to us by a friend and we are so happy she was our officiant. We had met up with her prior to the wedding and she spent over an hour with us going over the details of the ceremony. She got to know us during this time and was able to personalize the ceremony as if she'd known us forever. We loved how intimate the ceremony felt and highly recommend her to anyone! Also, we had a backyard ceremony and our place was really messy afterwards. Jacqueline had tidied up for us after the ceremony, who does that! Thank you, Jacqueline for making our ceremony one to remember forever!

    There is no one else like Jacqueline

    I have to add my own reviews which I normally don鈥檛 do.
    If you need someone to lead a ceremony celebrating a life milestone - PICK JACQUELINE!!!
    We were married nov 3 and Jacqueline made the ceremony super special for us.
    My experience as an observant of civil ceremonies before I met Jacqueline was the following in a nutshell :
    Do you - I do, twice
    We were so pleased with how the ceremony was discussed, prepared and conducted, Jacqueline made it so special and personal for us. We were blending two families and we very much appreciated the family vows as well.
    Thank you Jacqueline! You made an impression on us and our family and friends. You are highly recommended.

    Amazing officiant

    Jacquie helped make our day very special. She wrote and delivered a beautiful ceremony with some humour throughout, which was just perfect. She spent time getting to know us as a couple and that really showed in the ceremony. She made the interaction feel so personal and not just like a job.
    We absolutely loved the ceremony and everyone that attended raved about it! So glad to have picked her as our officiant.

    Thanks for being so AWESOME!

    Marrying people is more than a job for Jacqueline; she is a beautiful storyteller who leaves joy and exuberance in her wake. Every single person who attended our wedding ugly cried (especially my husband) thanks to Jacqueline's customised ceremony that wove the journey of our lives together in a poetic celebration of love. I want everyone I know to get married by Jacqueline because I also just want another chance to see her in action.

    Jacqueline Hoare's reply:

    Marina and Ryan . . . You brought tears to my eyes with your kind words . . . I loved everything about the two of you and your beautiful wedding in the community garden . . . I wish you so much love and laughter . . .

    Wow. Simply amazing! I never knew that the person marrying us would add so much value and excitement to an already exciting day. Jacqueline is a wonderful woman. She is super funny, yet professional. If getting married multiples times were my thing I would choose her over and over again!
