Jane is a wonderful officiant and we would definitely recommend her to others! She is kind, professional, knowledgable, sincere, and spiritual. We were looking for someone who accepted both my husband and my different spiritual backgrounds and Jane was a great fit because she is accepting of all beliefs systems. She had great ideas and suggested several unity ritual ceremony options that were unique and we chose a tree planting ceremony that fit our personalities and venue making it a very personal and special ceremony. In addition, she offers life coaching classes as an option which was something we were looking for. She really helped us gain valuable insight about each other and our relationship. We were also able to get to know Jane better through those classes and it made having her officiate our ceremony feel that much more special. Jane we can't thank you enough for filling such an important role at our wedding and excelling at it!

Jane is GREAT!! She is so great that she officiated my brother's and sister's weddings as well as my own (the family officiant). Jane is wonderful! She has an easing spirit that calms the most stressed out person while also having an authority about her that others listen to. We thoroughly enjoyed her services and would recommend her to any and everyone! Thank you so much Jane!

Jane is a true professional and gave us an elegant ceremony. Just as important, she understood the stress we would be going through as we planned our wedding, and she had great things to say along the way that kept us calm throughout.

We fell in love with Jane because of her suggested vows; they are the perfect blend of practical, romantic, and spiritual. Upon meeting, we were pleased to learn that she also has a straightforward ceremony guide that we could easily personalize by choosing from a list of suggested readings and unity rituals rather than having to create everything ourselves. We ended up using readings that were outside of Jane’s usual list, and that was just fine with her, too.

Jane is flexible but she won't hesitate to tell you when she thinks you might be heading for trouble. This part of her service will save you a lot of hassle! For example, my husband and I originally had an idea for a knot-tying unity ritual. Neither of us knew anything about tying celtic knots, but we thought it would be cool and different. Jane advised us against trying to learn something new weeks before the wedding that we would feel pressure to "perform" at our ceremony. She shared some other ideas, and we decided to go with the salt exchange. We feel so happy that we listened to her words of reason and steered toward a "tried and true" unity ritual from her list.

We appreciated that Jane went the extra mile for us by attending our wedding rehearsal. Jane was very good about getting back to our e-mails along the way, and she was particularly responsive on the day of the wedding. She was there early and checked in with us multiple times to make sure we were feeling strong and secure before the service. (We were, of course, but we appreciated her extra care all the same!)

Jane facilitated a beautiful and joyful wedding ceremony. From the very beginning Jane helped us feel relaxed and calm, allowing the excitement of our special day to unfold. Most importantly Jane created a space where our two children and merging families were honored and felt loved. Jane truly listened to what we wanted and provided guidance while embracing our needs. She made herself available to us whenever needed, reached out to our parents and children. She is gifted at creating a sacred space and we were blessed to have her officiate our wedding.

Jane officiates with a warmth and sincerity that makes your wedding ceremony even more meaningful. She is lovely person, both inside and out, and she works hard to make sure your ceremony is tailored to your needs. Having her stand there next to you, guiding you and giving your hand an extra squeeze as you are trying hard not to cry during your vows, is invaluable. Our families were deeply impressed with Jane, with many comments being made about how everyone immediately felt akin to her. We could not be happier that Jane was a part of our special day!

Jane was referred to us by a friend and she was a true gem at our wedding. We didn't start on time, and we needed to adjust the ceremony at the very last minute. Jane took everything in stride and kept us calm and happy.

Meeting her ahead of time with my fiance led us both to feel relaxed and excited about the ceremony. She thought of everything! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Jane was amazing. We discovered her when we found out our original officiant had double-booked overlapping weddings! Well, everything must happen for a reason because from the moment we met her, we knew she was the one. She understood exactly what we wanted (quick, simple and meaningful) and never tried to steer us in any other direction, which is what several other officiants we had met tried to do. Even the guests raved about her afterward. She is quick to respond to emails and was more than willing to work with us in every way. I would recommend Jane to anyone!!!

During the planning stages she was so helpful in providing suggestions we might want to incorporate in the ceremony, yet she was also very flexible with the various changes we made to the ceremony itself. Warm, professional, and gracious - Jane exuded all of these qualities. We would highly recommend her services. Thanks, Jane!

Jane worked with me in two areas: wedding planning and officiant.

Before me and my then fiance decided on an officiant, we met with Jane. From the very moment I met her I knew she was someone special. During our meeting she gave us general details about her officiant services and ideas for the wedding from invitations to party favors. It was at that point I knew she was the officiant for us (and that I desperately needed a wedding planner).

When it came to wedding planning, Jane and I met three times to discuss details of the wedding. She gave me readings to choose from (for her officiant services) and a detailed task list broken down by month, week and day. I was so thankful for this task list and it helped me organize and prepare each detail for the wedding.

On the day of the wedding Jane came prepared and calm. Her gentle and kind manner helped me and my then fiance calm down and know exactly what we needed to do during the ceremony.

Many guests commented on the wonderful readings of the ceremony (which me and my then fiance picked out from her suggestions) and Jane's demeanor. Additionally, Jane helped move the reception along after the ceremony by gently announcing toasts, cake cutting, happy hour and dinnertime.

Jane has a very clean spirit and is full of light. If you would like a professional, organized, kind and gentle officiant, then Jane is the one for you!

Thank you Jane for making our day so special!

Jane is a wonderful and warm officiant. She was delightful to meet with from Day 1, asking questions and getting to know us better. She already has ceremony templates appropriate to many types of ceremonies, and she was very receptive to our changes and additions. On site, Jane is a very organized and calming person. She orchestrated a bridal party rehearsal promptly in the midst of day-of chaos, and communicated effectively with all friends and family present. She performed a beautiful ceremony for us, seamlessly incorporating our vows, unity ceremony and readings. Many of the guests gave wonderful compliments and said it was one of the best ceremonies they've ever been to! Thanks for all your help Jane - it was a pleasure! Jodie & Stoney Lundin 8-26-11
