Above & Beyond

We are extremely happy that we have come across Jo-Anne and decided to have her be our Wedding Officiant. She honestly went above and beyond. From taking time to hear about our love story, sharing tips, having lists of what to expect before & after to officiating our wedding. Everything was just perfect. Jo-Anne is also very quick to respond! Which is a HUGE help!

Personally, we loved that she took the time to really make it unique to us - as she also does for others.

Nothing fancy just love

Absolutely recommended. I’ve came across Jo-Ann’s profile a year ago and ever since then I always wanted her to commission our wedding and It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Jo-Ann went above and beyond and helping us plan our wedding ceremony and made sure that everything was covered from start ‘till the end of our wedding ceremony. It was great working with Jo-Ann and her husband Ian, and we can’t thank them enough for the opportunity of knowing them and making our wedding the best that it can ever be.

The Perfect Ceremony!

What can I say about Jo-Ann, except that she was the perfect choice to officiate our wedding! She created a thoughtful ceremony that felt so personalized, it’s like she had known us for years. We decided not to write our own vows, but our ceremony still felt perfectly customized to us as a couple. Jo-Ann’s communication was top notch - any questions I had were answered within a matter of hours. She also went above and beyond to ensure that we felt comfortable with every aspect of the ceremony during our rehearsal to prepare us for the big day. She even provided us with a booklet of next steps to follow now that we’ve tied the knot! To summarize, if you’re looking for a caring and detail-oriented officiant who will treat you like family and make your ceremony feel tailored to you as a couple, look no further than Wedding Wishes!

Jo-Ann was an absolute delight from the very first time we communicated, all the way until our wedding day. She is extremely personable, yet very professional at the same time. For our initial meeting she chose a location that was close to us which I thought was extremely generous. Jo-Ann really took the time to get to know us, and exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. She had great suggestions, but always kept our wishes top of mind. She kept in touch from that point until the rehearsal date to ensure that we had everything in order, she ran the rehearsal beautifully, and left no one with questions or concerns about the big day. We got so many compliments from guests on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was, and I know we owe a huge part of that to Jo-Ann. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know!

I am so happy that we hired Jo-Ann as our officiant! She was very organized, and she would offer us suggestions and opinions. She was very interested in getting to know us as people and customizing our ceremony to our own unique needs. She knew exactly what needed to be done and was good at adapting her plan if there were hiccups, for example, like when our rehearsal dinner ran over. I would definitely recommend Jo-Ann!

Everything at the ceremony went perfectly. I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much, Jo-Ann, for being our commissioner. I would recommend you to any one I come across looking for one!

The package you gave us at our first meeting helped us plan our vows, readings, etc. We didn't know at all what to include or where to even begin. The examples you include in that package are very helpful and we walked away from that first meeting with you relieved (because you gave us plenty of ideas/examples and made us feel very comfortable with all your experience/knowledge) and excited for what was to come.

Jo-Ann is such a genuine woman. She cares with all her heart, and always puts the couple first. She has structure & understanding that really made my husband and I feel comfortable with our ceremony.

My husband and I had been planning our wedding from Calgary and Jo-Ann made it extremely easy! We had mostly communicated via email and only met the day before the wedding at the rehearsal. I was so grateful for the rehearsal, it gave us a chance not only to meet but to chat and get to know each other a little more. We all got along great right away and she made us feel at ease. The ceremony went smoothly and was perfect. Jo-Ann was wonderful, she has such a great personality and gave the ceremony a great feel which was exactly what we were looking for, a little love and a little humour. I would highly recommend Jo-Ann to anyone who is looking for a professional and caring officiant! Thank you again Jo-Ann!

Jo-Ann was awesome, every time we saw her we felt more at ease about things. She always made sure everyone was comfortable in the roles they had for the big day. She let me know all her tips and tricks for getting great photos during the ceremony which is awesome. Wedding officiant more like cool aunt.
