We can guide you in planning your special day. Contact 'Ceremonies by JodieLyn' as soon as possible to get started

We specialize in wedding officiating & ceremony planning/coordinating. Jodie will write a personalized, custom ceremony that can be any type you want. Jodie has done all types of: weddings, commitment ceremonies, renewal of vows, second marriages, anniversaries, hand fasting and elopements/civil service ceremonies.

We also do Baby dedication/blessing ceremonies, life celebrations/funerals, and more.

You may want a wedding/event to be confidential, informal, formal, traditional, contemporary or elegant. We take pride in giving you precisely what you expect and desire. Even if you prefer a quick, simple wedding, or license signing, we can give you that. You could go to city hall or the courthouse but most couples feel that by having hiring an officiant they save money, time, and have a new friend/minister that they have personally spoken with and created a relationship with. They can make their moment even more memorable, regardless of the wedding size. Also, the court house could have a wait list that may be months long. With 'Ceremonies by JodieLyn' you can get same day service if available.

When you call for a consultation, Jodie will help you customize your ceremony so that it reflects your own unique style, values, wishes and personalities. Jodie prefers to write custom, personalized ceremonies regardless of which officiant is performing the ceremony, Jodie does all the writing herslef.

After your ceremony, we will take care of the legal filing of the marriage license and any other requirements. We also provide you with a keepsake copy of your ceremony. If needed, we will provide a wedding planning guide designed to your event. Our guides/workbooks are designed with your type of event in mind, we have four different workbooks available.

"Writing the ceremony is my favorite part. As I write, I am thinking about you, the couple, I want the ceremony to be very personal and special to you." "I ask of all my couples, that when they go through hard times, to pull out their keepsake copy and read it together and to remember that special day and what led them to it."

Our Ministers are willing to travel to your wedding location, and available on short notice. We also have a Spanish speaking Minister for couples who would like their ceremony interpreted or done in Spanish. We have 4 other officiants that work with 'Ceremonies by JodieLyn', so we can find the best fit for you and accommodate your date.

There are many other services we can provide to you, but most importantly, WE want to be sure you have thought of all the little things for your day. "My Motto is “take care of the little things too”. "I would not want you to be caught off guard with little details that many brides may not think of?" Yes, the reception is the largest part of your wedding day, but Jodie wants to make sure the Ceremony is something special too.

Jodie will offer words of wisdom and sound advice to you and may have the resources to provide you with what you need for your day to run smoothly. Or to help bring your costs down.

'Ceremonies by JodieLyn' does budget planning and, if needed, a wedding booklet with worksheets, vendor forms with tips/FAQ’s can be provided to you.

{Couples Coaching, Mediation Services, Life Coaching Services, and Stress relief help is all available to you.}

We look forward to discussing your special day with you.

Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, we do religious, non religious and we do all sorts of indoor and outside weddings.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
My attire depends on the type of ceremony you are having. I want you to be comfortable and happy with what I am wearing just as much as you are comfortable and happy with what you guests, bridesmaids, etc. are wearing.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Most definitely. This is YOUR wedding and although I thoroughly enjoy writing the ceremonies to be as personalized as possible, anything you would like to contribute is definitely something I am flexible with and encourage.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, if you, as a couple would like to write your own vows, that is doable, and if you need help, I can do that as well.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Yes and No. No, it is not a MUST that you choose from a list that I do have, but if you are in need of help, I do have a list that can help you to decide what you may want.
How long are your ceremonies?
That depends on you and the type of ceremony you would like to have.

No, I do not require it. If you would like premarital counseling, I am a Life Coach/Certified Mediator, this, along with a lot of life experience and study, I can provide couple counseling.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes I am. I do prefer to provide the bride with my ceremony outline and instructions on performing her rehearsal, as it is expensive to the bride for me to charge for my time to be at a rehearsal.
Do you supply a sound system?
I do not supply the sound system, but I can if you so choose.

I found Jodie online. She's from Fresno which is the closest locale to Kings Canyon National Park where the ceremony was.
We had spoken a few times on the phone for the initial consult and she was quick to return emails, phone calls and answer questions. Before she gave us a quote she had us fill out a questionnaire about our requests and such. I had told her a story about Dan and I, and I like that she incorporated it subtly into the ceremony. It was a really nice touch.
Our ceremony was supposed to be at 3:00pm but my husband forgot the exact spot we had chosen to get married at and most of the guests had followed him to the wrong spot. Thankfully Jodie had her daughter with her and she helped a lot with rounding up the guests. We started much later but nevertheless had a good ceremony.
I also liked the things Jodie had said during the ceremony about marriage and all the work that goes into it. My husband still quotes her every so often. I would have given her 5 out of 5 but I thought we were going to be given a chance to say our vows but it didn't happen and we really wanted to.
However, we do think she did a great job and we were happy to have chosen her as our officiant.

Jody Lyn was amazing throughout our wedding planning! She really listened to us and our requests and respected them all. She made our ceremony so personal and romantic. She even helped us through our rehearsal even though it wasn't very easy with our crazy wedding party. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a beautiful ceremony written just for the two of you. Thank you so much Jody for everything!
