  • Joan was absolutely amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. I found her on Wedding Wire and read through the comments and all I could see was positive feedback. Little did I know that everything I read was true! She took the time to get to know us and to find out what our vision was for our ceremony. Not only was she helpful with our ceremony planning, but when the Coronavirus ruined all our original wedding plans, Joan was there to offer her flexibility and friendship during that frustrating time. She was a complete stranger to us but was so caring and sweet through all of it that it felt like she was a good friend of ours by the time our wedding did take place. She made our special day perfect, more than we could have imagined. We can’t thank her enough for her flexibility and kindness. Joan truly is a wonderful and professional officiant, you will not go wrong picking her to be apart of your special day!
