As a trained celebrant and wedding officiant, it's my pleasure to write beautifully personalized ceremonies with a touch of humor that are a true reflection of the relationship, personalities, and values of the couples I work with. I officiate with warmth and reverence for the importance of the memory I'm creating for my couples, and I'm proud to work with same-sex couples to make their wedding day a reality.

I travel throughout Washington, DC, MD and PA officiating weddings great and small! Unfortunately I am not authorized to officiate weddings in the state of Virginia.


Whether you're seeking an inter-faith, non-denominational, spiritual, multi-cultural or civil/secular ceremony, I'll work to make your vision come to life! And if you aren't quite sure what you want, we'll explore those options together as we create the most important part of your wedding day...the moment you're united!

My pricing is competitive and includes an initial interview scheduled at your convenience where I can learn more about your partnership and you can get a feeling for who I am and why I've chosen this incredible work.

Working with Jessica was extremely pleasing to work with and she was so helpful. I needed her assistance to be my Officiant at a very short period of time and she was flexible with me. She really made our dreams come true uniting us in a very difficult time that we are going through. I would definitely recommend her to everyone. Thanks Jessica for making our dreams come true.

Being that our wedding was an LGBT one, we were extremely concerned with being able to be ourselves on the most important day of our lives! Originally, we asked two of close friends to perform our ceremony because we thought it would be nice to have someone who truly knew us to speak on our behalf. We are so glad neither of those people worked out:) We could not have asked for a better person to marry us! Jessica was amazing from start to finish; the way she listened, gathered, and told our story was much more than we could have ever imagined. It was as if she knew us throughout our entire relationship. The ceremony went off without a hitch. It was beautiful and magical. Many unexpected tears were shed among guests and I think that says more than words when it comes to people connecting with our story. Everyone came up to us at the end saying Jessica did a tremendous job and it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had ever attended!

Thank you, Jessica, for everything! We had a wonderful wedding and much of that was thanks to you:)

Jessica was absolutely wonderful! From the moment we first met with her, I knew we had made the right choice. She was in constant contact through emails and phone calls. The wedding ceremony she wrote for us was exactly what we wanted! We received comments all evening from our guests about what a beautiful ceremony it was.

Jessica helped us to have what many of our friends and family said was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever seen. She helped us to create a ceremony that was deeply personal and truly expressed how we felt about one another. She provided us with many ideas and options for readings and allowed us to supplement with some of our own. She was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend Jessica as an officiant at your wedding!

I could not be more pleased with my wedding ceremony using Jessica. Looking for a meaningful and non-religious ceremony, I came to Jessica. She was easy to work with and provided an incredibly moving, funny, and personal ceremony. So many guests remarked it was one of the most amazing ceremonies they'd ever been to. I cannot thank her enough for ensuring the meaning of my wedding day was captured.

We were extremely happy with our wedding ceremony. Jessica put together a great narrative that touched on all the points we wanted. She was also very easy to work with. Several people, including our close relatives, remarked on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. She also addressed our concern about finding the right amount of time for the ceremony. At one point in our ceremony, the microphone cut out. Jessica continued with the ceremony and did not lose a moment. We are very glad we chose her as our officiant.

I could not write enough good things about Jessica. We were looking for an officiant who wouldn't bring religion into the ceremony and found her. We met and knew immediately she was it. We received the most compliments of the night about her. She had the whole room laughing and crying. She spoke so eloquently too. If you are looking for a well spoken, warm, officiant who makes the ceremony about YOU and YOUR story, hire this woman. It was so romantic and everyone told us that it was obvious we love each other so much because the ceremony was so beautiful. Best hire of the night.

Jessica was absolutely fantastic. We asked her to do a unique reading that required a special touch in its'
delivery and we were so pleased with the results - it was perfect! Jessica worked with us from start to finish on our individualized ceremony and was always prompt and responsive. Her voice is beautiful! I can't say enough good things about Jessica, and I would certainly recommend her to others!

Jessica was amazing! As soon as I sent her an email requesting her services, she set-up a phone call to discuss details, payment, etc. She was extremely responsive and always on top of things. I never worried for a second. We used her services just for the most basic ceremony since we had already gotten the marriage certificate beforehand, but the ceremony she wrote blew me away! For the amount she charged, I thought I would get a very basic template, but she made the ceremony so personal! I had sent her a small paragraph about me and my husband, and she took that language and crafted a beautiful ceremony. For being a complete stranger to us, she had all of our guests asking how I knew her. They all thought she was a very good friend of mine! That just shows how good Jessica is. She was able to make the ceremony so personal and reflect our values as a couple so well that all our guests were so surprised to find out that she didn't actually know us! Many people asked me if I sat down with her to write the ceremony, and I didn't; it was all based off of a short email to her. I would HIGHLY recommend Jessica's services to anyone. She helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect.
