Jacqueline was incredibly warm & attentive. The vows/ceremony she wrote truly reflected us . We had guests that have been married for 20+ yrs tell us they wanted to renew their vows using ours. It was a truly lovely ceremony.

Jacqueline honestly created the up most magical way of expressing our love through words. She has a touch of class in all she does and brings great presence not only in her voice but in her ability to create vows, and phrases that touched not only our hearts but all that attended our wedding.

I chose Jacqueline from a wedding vendor book. I like what she wrote in her profile. She seemed to take the job seriously, yet at the same time, she mentioned that she specialized in mix-faith marriages or ceremonies that were more unique. My husband was raised Jewish and I was raised Catholic. This is still important to some members of our family, but not as important to us. We wanted a ceremony that focused on our share non-religious beliefs and we also knew we wanted to write our own vows and include our families somehow. Jacqueline was able to provide us with some context from her past experiences and this helped guide us in how to set the itinerary for the day. She took our family members thoughts on a successful marriage and blended them into a wonderful commentary. Most of all, because our service was so small (25) and filled with very close family and friends, we wanted our officiate to feel like part of our circle too - and she very much did. Everyone who attended commented on how lovely the ceremony was and what a great job Jacqueline did. We would highly recommend her!

Jacqueline met with us serveral times before our ceremony and made the entire ceremony reflect who we are. We had sooo many people tell us how beautiful our ceremony was. She asked us a series of questions, what does marriage mean to you, what are your admirations for your spouse, and what does the ring symbolize for you. We chose to keep the answers of our admirations from each other and Jacqueline helped us through the process. During our ceremony my husband and I read our admirations to each other, and it was so beautiful. So many people told us how incredible each aspect of the ceremony was.
Choosing Jacqueline was so important as she understands that the ceremony is the epicenter of the entire wedding. So many people rush through the ceremony to get to the reception, when the ceremony is about your promises to your partner for life... it is the most improtant part!
Thank you Jacqueline for making our ceremony unforgetable!

Jacqueline writes her own vows for each wedding which is very nice and makes each ceremony unique to the couple. She was very helpful and responsive when working with us to decide what was important to us and wanted included in the ceremony. She was always available and willing to help during the process of coming up with the ceremony. She also has lots of experience and is very professional.
