    Wedding Officiant

    Jack and Gerri Ashby; this husband and wife are such a great team - he is an experienced officiant, and made us laugh, and she is great with the behind the scenes details. They both made the rehearsal and ceremony run so smoothly. Gerri did lots of running back and forth between the guys and the girls just prior to the ceremony and made sure everything was organized. Every time I saw her, she just made me feel so relaxed. When we met with them the first time, they asked us a few questions we had never thought of as well as gave us advice that helped shape our day. They also provided sample vows, and printed out our vows to ensure we had them at the ceremony. Their years of experience and love for what they do makes them so wonderful to work with. As a detail orientated person (and a bride!) all of the small things were super appreciated. I can’t imagine our day without them! I highly recommend.

    A great time!

    Jack has a way of adding his own flair to the service which makes it more enjoyable for the guests and makes everyone feel at home. Loved how we met beforehand to make arrangements and after that both Jack and Gerri were easily accessible. Thank you for answering all of my questions!

    Experienced and excellent service

    Jack showed up early for the ceremony. He coordinated between myself and my groom. He told the groom to face the mountains while he waited for me. Very professional and also experienced. The ceremony went off without a hitch!

    Dream team!

    Jack and Geri are the dream team - Jack was our officiant, made us feel so comfortable and did a beautiful reading for our ceremony. Geri helped us organize, where to stand during the rehearsal. On our wedding day, she alerted us when to come out from limo, timed us walking down the aisle.
    You can't go wrong with these two! :)

    I was very lucky to have Jack & Gerri as part of my wedding. Jack catered to us to make our ceremony very personal and special. Gerri made sure our special day went off without a hitch. Gerri is an extremely talented day of coordinator and is extremely knowledgeable. She helped me with all my questions and made sure the things I didn't think of were taken care of. I am extremely thankful for both of your expertise in helping me with the best day of my life.
    Forever grateful Mr. & Mrs. Brown

    I can't say enough good things about our experience with Jack & Gerri. Jack tailored our vows to fit us perfectly, and Gerri was there to make sure our ceremony went off without a hitch. We also did the pre-martial course with Jack & Gerri and found it extremely beneficial. Would recommend Jack & Gerri to everyone! Thank you so much!

    Jack and Gerri are the perfect dynamic duo!! Not a lot of JPs come with an extra person that help pull everything together; but I can't imaging our wedding ceremony without Gerri! She helped with all the little details of the ceremony; from making sure the boutonniere was placed correctly, to giving me a pep talk to keep me calm before entering the ceremony! Jack's vows were very meaningful, everyone commented on how personal the ceremony was (which is what we were going for) . Together Jack & Gerri made sure every detail of the ceremony is taken care of, I definitely recommend them!!

    Great commissioner!

    Jack was so great to have at our wedding as our commissioner. We met him and his wife Gerri and knew right away we wanted to have Jack officiate our wedding. He was so helpful on the rehearsal day and was perfect on the wedding day!!

    June wedding

    We are so pleased we chose Jack and Gerri to officiate our wedding. They are very warm people and put us completely at ease with how professional and organized they were. We customized our vows and Jack did an amazing job incorporating our requests and delivering a very heartfelt ceremony that many people told us brought tears to their eyes. They also had some wonderful suggestions to help make our ceremony unique and personal to us. Thank you so much Jack and Gerri!
