About Us

Love in the Time of COVID: I live right near Prospect Park so contact me for pay-what-you-can pre-scripted elopements in Prospect Park. Last minute inquiries welcome! Let's still celebrate love in dark times!

Before becoming ordained in the Universal Life Church in 2012, I worked as a writer/editor, teacher, and labor support doula. My experience as a doula immediately informed my new life as a marriage celebrant, and I strive to bring the same calm and good-humored presence to the planning of your wedding ceremony that I brought into the labor and delivery room. I'm here to help you take a deep breath about all the logistics, and stay centered in the love and committment that brought you, not just to this monumental day, but also to your ongoing and future life together.

My experience as a writer and editor allows me to bring together your reflections on your relationship with those of your loved ones to craft a personalized wedding ceremony that gets at the heart of what you mean to one another and what marriage means to the two of you.

I also recently completed a Master's in Social Work and and am working towards becoming a licensed couples therapist. I'll soon begin offering premarital counseling sessions, so stay tuned for that and let me know if you'd be interested in a discounted pilot premarital counseling rate.


Services Offered
I write personalized ceremony scripts, working with you to identify ceremony elements and rituals that have meaning for you. There is also the option of having me interview family and friends, whom I send a series of questions, and then have a bit of back and forth to tease out the anecdotes and details that capture the heart of your relationship: the light & sweet, the deeply felt, and the comical. I love to work with couples to capture a tone that matches their personalities, bringing forward the honesty, humor, and sincerity that goes into not just a wedding, but a relationship and marriage. I primarily perform non-denominational ceremonies, but am more than happy to include religious rituals, passages, and songs to make your wedding deeply meaningful to you and your loved ones.

  • Simply put, Jillian is amazing! My husband and I interviewed many officiants and were about to give up and settle. We spoke to Jillian over the phone first and felt a connection. We liked that she offered to meet with us in person. During this meeting, we immediately knew that we wanted Jillian to be our officiant. She didn’t once pressure us into committing to her and she simply used the meeting to talk about her experiences and to get to know us a little better. After signing with her, Jillian met with us again and asked us many more questions about our relationship. She exuded a comforting energy that allowed us both to be open with her. Additionally, she contacted our friends/family to get more information about us for a bespoke marriage story. In the end, we were so happy with the content that she came up with! Jillian made our ceremony very special and unique with our marriage story. Our family and friends commented on how beautiful our ceremony was. If you want an officiant wh... Read more
