I'm going to make this very simple, Rev. Joan Pape was absolutely amazing. She was the officiant for our wedding and did such a great job! I don't need to get into details because that would take forever. I would definitely recommend her!

Reverend Joan provided quality, personal, and professional officiant services for our wedding. We contacted Rev Joan mid-way through our planning process and although we felt as though we did not have a lot of time, Joan made us feel relaxed and reassured us that our big day would go just the way we wanted. She personalized our wedding to include special touches for certain family members and made our ceremony feel like we had known her for years. We were skeptical about going outside of our congregations to find an officiant, but we are so happy that we did. Reverend Joan was very open minded and supported our ideas and creativity.

Joan from Ceremonies by Design made our ceremony feel authentic to us and rooted in our core values. She allowed us to choose a ceremony design that was a good fit for us and helped provide guidance on all of the details regarding the wedding ceremony, including the process of applying for a marriage license. She was always responsive to my questions and needs and was such a calming presence on the day of the wedding. After the wedding, my family commented on how kind she was to everyone during the rehearsal and at the ceremony. They also commented on how wonderfully the ceremony flowed. I would recommend Ceremonies by Design to anyone that is looking for officiant services in the Dane County area.

Joan was our officiant for our April 25th, 2015 wedding at The Wilderness in the Wisconsin Dells, and it was an absolutely beautiful ceremony! Joan, thank you so much for helping us make our dream of getting married come true, and making the process so easy and fun. Joan helped us put together a beautiful custom ceremony, we got so many compliments on our vows! We really appreciate you being there to celebrate with us. :) Thank you also for the wonderful book and the very nice copy of our ceremony outline!

Joan is a wonderful person who is very talented! As soon as we met with her we knew that she could create the ceremony we always dreamed of. The ceremony actually turned out even more beautiful than I ever imagined! We received sooooo many compliments on our service! Even some family members that were upset that it wasn't going to be very religious, really loved it! My maid of honor, who really dislikes weddings, cried when she read the ceremony draft ahead of time! Joan had great suggestions and ideas throughout the planning process and kept tweaking the draft until we had it exactly how we wanted it. I was really dreading creating a ceremony, but she made it a very simple process! She emailed us tons of readings and vows for ideas and options, which was great so that we didn't have to spend time researching them online. I just can't even express how happy we are that we chose Joan to create our ceremony! We really wanted a personalized service that told our love story, and that's exactly what we got! We couldn't be happier and would HIGHLY recommend Ceremonies By Design!

Joan is an amazing officiant. We are so glad that we chose her to do our ceremony. From our first phone call, my husband and I felt very comfortable with her. She was really easy to work with while planning our ceremony. Being out of state, our ability to meet with her was limited, but she worked with us so we could meet before the big day. She was very knowledgable about our wedding location and all the ins and outs for the day ahead of us. I had absolutely no worries the day of because I knew that Joan had everything covered.

Our experience with Rev Joan Pape couldn't have gone any smoother. We were looking for a non-denomination experience, one that afforded us a high degree of flexibility as we incorporated the baptism of three of our children into our wedding ceremony. It came across fluid and seamless. It was great. Rev Joan Pape had helpful suggestions along the way that added nice touches to our day.

Joan was absolutely amazing to work with. My husband and I contacted Joan for our civil ceremony in December knowing that we were also going to have a full ceremony with all our friends and family again in August. Joan created two unique ceremonies to fit both events.

She made the whole process so easy and took the stressors of planning the ceremony script off of us. Just by answering a few questions about ourselves, individually and as a couple, and letting her know the feel that we were going for, she put together a ceremony that was not only beautiful but extremely special to us as well!

I am so happy that we made the decision to go with Ceremonies by Design. I recommend them to everyone, especially if you want a ceremony that is specific to you, your spouse, your family, and your special day.
