Jessica from Carissa Ceremonies is the best! She met with us months before the wedding to learn as much about us as possible. She suggested many unique ideas for our day and helped us write the most personal and meaningful ceremony. Everyone raved about how wonderful she was in performing our ceremony. I would highly recommend her.

Jessica from Carissa Ceremonies was spectacular as our wedding officiant and we could not have been happier to have her guiding us through our big day!. From our initial meeting, she really wanted to create as personal a ceremony as possible by having us tell her "our story". She truly helped us design a ceremony that centered around family and friends; exactly what we wanted. Initially, having to decide all of the wording of a wedding ceremony seemed like a daunting task, but Jessica provided us with a huge amount of samples that we could choose from and even encouraged us to find readings that would have particular meaning to us. Jessica was incredibly helpful during our rehearsal, taking the time to make sure everybody in our party knew exactly what to do and was even a great source of encouragement before the actual ceremony. With Jessica, it felt like a great friend was there guiding us through the most important day of our life. We would definitely recommend Jessica to anybody looking for a person that can make your wedding ceremony a beautiful, personalized event and a day you will never forget!

Out of everyone in our wedding team, we received the most compliments about Jessica. Her warm spirit is contagious! Jessica led and coordinated our wedding ceremony with the utmost professionalism and confidence, demonstrating her credibility, knowledge, and experience in the industry. She provided us with example readings, vows, and traditions that we could use and tweak for our own ceremony, resulting in a very personal and unique ceremony that fit us perfectly. Jessica makes a strong effort in getting to know all of her clients, and we are so fortunate to have had her. We'd recommend her to anyone :)

Jessica was great! She helped us through the ceremony. She was on time, she spoke great at the wedding. She got me through the ceremony without crying too much and was ready to go. She was a little expensive, but made me feel confident so we went with her and glad we did.

Jessica was responsive right from the start. She was referred to us by a trusted mentor and friend so I was not too concerned. However, we still reviewed all of her ratings online and they were stellar! Jessica "got us" from our very first meeting. We felt connected to her and trusted that she would execute our vision. Three months after our wedding people say to us that our ceremony was the most unique, loving and thoughtful ceremony they have ever experienced; it surely was (and in our personal opinion) should be the highlight of our wedding- for us, it was the most intimate and memorable part of the whole process. Jessica helped to make this so. She offered suggestions that gave our wedding a unique and special touch, She even researched some ethnic customs for us to consider, as this was important to us. I would recommend Jessica to serve as an officiant without any reservation.

My husband and I were referred to Jessica from Carissa Ceremonies by our wedding planner for our fall 2012 wedding. Neither my husband nor I belong to any religious institution or particular school of thought but knew we wanted to have a meaningful ceremony that was a direct reflection of us and our love story. Jessica was a huge help from the very beginning, she provided us with many many samples of past ceremonies she performed for reference and offered up unique ideas and solutions for issues we had trouble working out ourselves. Both my parents are deceased and I was having a hard time figuring out a way to honor them, acknowledge my guardians and not have our special day and marriage turn into a "weighty" remembrance of the dead. Jessica helped us devise special roles for the members present and helped us with wording to honor those who were not. On our wedding day she was prompt and poised and made both of us feel very relaxed. I would definitely recommend Jessica for the couple who does not want the typical cookie-cutter wedding ceremony but rather prefers to work with someone who can help tailer it to the specific needs of the couple.

This was our second marriage and Jessica was the perfect officiant for our intimate, outdoor wedding. We wrote our own vows and had friends read poems that meant a lot to us. She was flexible with the flow of the ceremony and put us at ease with her warmth and humor. At the wedding rehearsal she made great suggestions for seating and other concerns.

My daughter will be getting married in June, and she also chose Jessica to officiate her big day. It will be so comforting to know that all will go smoothly at her ceremony with Reverend Jessica at the helm!
