Our wedding was PERFECT! And we have Jan to thank for that!!! We planned our wedding in 5 months and everything went so smoothly. I actually found Jan through weddingwire.com. I was looking over reviews and was impressed with hers. When I reached out to Jan, she responded quickly and we picked a date to meet. When my mother emailed her, they found out that they know each other from years back! It felt meant to be! Our first meeting was wonderful, my husband and myself were laughing along with Jan! She made us so excited and created a ceremony that was perfect for us!
The rehearsal went very well! It was so exciting to go through the motions and reveal the wine box ceremony that Jan helped us put together! Jan was able to wrangle up the wedding party and rehearsal went wonderfully. So happy that she was there for the walk through!
The day of the wedding went flawlessly, I still hear each day how everyone absolutely loved our ceremony, it was PERFECT for us! I couldn't imagine our big day without Jan there! She is very professional, fun, down to earth and brings more happiness to the day! I feel so lucky to have found her through weddingwire and would recommend her to everyone I know!
Thank you Jan for a wonderful experience!!!

Jan was absolutely amazing!! She was very responsive and super organized. When I first reached out to Jan to request services she set up a meeting to meet myself and my husband, as she wanted to ensure she would be a good fit for us. We spent an hour just chatting with her, getting to know each other. She spent the time asking us about ourselves, how we met etc., and we had not even solidified her services yet. By the time we got home she had sent us examples of vows, as well as a script for a remembrance ceremony (which we were planning on doing). At this point I knew she would be a good fit for our ceremony. She was always responsive to emails, and was great at kindly reminding me what I needed to be doing (as my bride brain often forgot). The day of the ceremony, she arrived super early to get a feel for the venue. She spent time walking my husband and I through what we needed to be doing, and even did a dry run with the bridal party and family to ensure they knew what they were supposed to be doing. She even brought color coded copies of the vows for my husband and myself, and carried them down the aisle so we didn’t have to worry about it. After the ceremony several people asked where I found Jan because they thought she knew us personally, she did such a phenomenal job with our vows. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone getting married, she was awesome!!

Jan was AMAZING!! When the pastor that I grew up with was unavailable to officiate our wedding, it was then important to us to find someone that would fit us and most of all "get" us. We were able to meet with Jan before we actually hired her, which was wonderful. Jan was so accommodating and genuine! She made our ceremony so unique and special. Everyone loved it and was very impressed! I heard people saying that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to! Jan also was very attentive, and respondent. I loved that I could reach her via text, email or just a quick call! and she always responded very properly. Couldn't of found a better officiant! WE LOVE YOU JAN!!

My husband and I were very pleased with the choice of an officiant our only child and her new husband chose for their wedding. The day was very emotional for both of us and Jan was so patient and kind. My husband was nervous about walking our daughter down the isle and she was so sweet to take the time to explain every detail to him. The ceremony and the words she chose were beautiful and perfect for my daughter and her new husband. Jan has a magnetic personality and is amazing at what she does. Thank you so much Jan!

Yes! I gave Jan a perfect 5 stars in every category! This is not your run of the mill review though, allow me to recount how amazing Jan was for my event so you can see how deserved the rating was! So I was planning a surprise vow renewal for my wife, and in putting the plan together mostly last minute I contact Jan on the Wednesday prior to my Saturday night event . Not only was she able to accommodate my last minute request for Saturday night, she was able to go right to the location I had picked out. Even in the last minute planning of the event she took no short cuts in her preparation. She texted and emailed consistently up to the event In order to get the details just right. Not only was she able to perform the out of the ordinary event I had planned exactly how I had pictured it, but you could tell in her words she had put a great deal of thought into saying things that matched exactly my wife and I , and had even friended me on Facebook so that she could secretly gather Intel on my wife to get to know things about her! All of the effort paid off when Jans words hit so close to my wife's heart she broke down into tears! As if all of that had not been enough, she was thirty minutes early and had brought a photographer along that she recommended since I was having trouble finding one that was reputable and fit in my price range!!! Jan was more than I could have ever hoped for, please please take my advice so that your special day can turn out just as memorable!!!!

We reached out to Jan on recommendation of the chapel we had booked for our wedding. She was quick to respond and provide us with questions and feedback that had us thinking about what we wanted from our ceremony. I considered our situation somewhat challenging, given that we were from out of state and were working on planning a wedding sight unseen. Jan was able to provide us with recommendations on other vendors she had worked closely with in the past. She even arranged to pick up our wedding flowers and bring them / set them up at the chapel on our behalf. So thoughtful, ready to jump in and do what needed to be done and left us feeling confident that our wedding was going to be everything we had dreamed of. On our wedding day, Jan was incredibly easy to work with, we were immediately comfortable in her presence and the ceremony went ahead exactly as we discussed. Given that we hadn't even rehearsed (our choice), everything went smoothly and beautifully. Jan took great care to get our marriage certificate to the county auditor's office and then personally mailed our certified marriage certificates to us in the mail the same week. If you're looking for a celebrant who is easy to work with, who is able to embrace the uniqueness of the individuals involved and listens and encourages the wants and needs of the couple, then Jan is the officiant for you. We are so grateful and appreciative of her time and expertise. Thanks, Jan!

She had wonderful suggestions and was also flexible for how we wanted the ceremony conducted and written. The best compliment we can give her is that the other guests attending our wedding thought we had know Jan for a very long time.

Jan Smillie at simplysayido.com is amazing. We were able to really make our ceremony personal and unique to us as a couple because Of Jan. She was fun, friendly and touched our hearts during the ceremony. Jan was always really responsive and easy to get ahold of before the wedding!! She even proof read our vows (since we wrote our own) and wrote our sand ceremony. She really went above and beyond a wedding officiants duties, and all for far less than what other people were charging!!! Definitely recommend her!!!

I have to say that there is not enough space to express how perfectly wonderful Jan was for our wedding! 110% there for us from the moment we met her all the way through to and including the most part, the wedding itself! She is Organized, Thoughtful, Thorough, Sensitive, Responsive, Personalble (not stuffy AT ALL), Respectful of our needs, and flexible! Jan really took the time to get to "Know US", so our service was truly reflective of who we are, not "just another service". The length of the service was perfect...she spoke clearly, and was not rushing through it...we have 3 couples who were that want to use her for their wedding too! We were supposed to have a practice Friday night, but only half of us could make it...so she ran through the practice with them, and the next moring ran through it again and again with everyone to make sure it was perfect, and it went PERFECTLY! Thank you Jan! If we ever decide to renew our vows, you will be called upon by us again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We were supposed to have a practice Friday night, but only half of us could make it...so she ran through the practice with them, and the next moring ran through it again and again with everyone to make sure it was perfect, and it went PERFECTLY! Thank you Jan! If we ever decide to renew our vows, you will be called upon by us again! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Read less

Jan was absolutely WONDERFUL! We loved her from the moment we met with her and couldn't wait to include her in our day. She was flexible, willing to add rehearsal to the contract only a month before our big day, and helped us think through our ceremony. She did great the day of, helped me feel at ease, and performed a BEAUTIFUL ceremony. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Jan to all Washington Brides!

She gave her advice, but didn't push it on us, she wanted our wedding to be just that, OURS! She was prompt, professional and very personable. I know how overwhelming it can be to find "the right" person for this job, but with her it was a "no brainer." I highly recommend her!

Jan is an absolutely amazing woman! She made our wedding ceremony into everything my wife and I had ever wished for! She helped us with everything. She was in touch with us almost every day. She had answers to every question we had. She made us feel at total ease. She did everything we asked without any hesitation. We flew from California to Washington for our wedding and Jan made sure to text us before and after our flights, telling us to have fun, and also sending words of encouragement. She really is everything you could ever ask for in an officiant. It really was "love at first sight" with Jan. She still keeps in touch with us as well, how many people can say that?? If you're reading this now, look no further, I can assure you Jan is the one!

First thing first, Thanks very much Jan, and Scott. My wife and I had a great wedding on 1/4/2013.

My wife and I decided to get married on 1/4/13 since this day has a very good meaning in Chinese. and we both are international students + a new mover to WA, so we can't count on firends' help and we have no clue how wedding process should be and what paper works we should prepare.
I called Jan to see if she could help me plan the wedding, but we just got two week to prepare it. Jan is a great planer. she and Scott drove us to the auditor's office and prepared the initial paper work, and showed us reserved church, and restaurant and met photographer Randy. We were very happy about wedding ceremony . To summarize, what we did was showing up on wedding day, Jan and Scott did the rest. haha,
We are friends now. Thanks to you two, we had a great wedding. :)

Jan is the most wonderful thing that I could have imagined in an officiant. She was great from the first call! She was willing to meet me at a place that was convenient for both of us! She took the time to listen to what we wanted in a ceremony and made it come to life. Jan was great at continuously emailing and making sure that everything was perfect. On the day of the wedding, she just whisked in and took over and really made me at ease. She performed the ceremony just as I had imagined it! We are so thankful and blessed to have her marry us and that she was such an important part of our special day! I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Jan!

Jan was amazing!! I contacted her via email a month before my wedding and she got back to me the same day. We immediatly set up a day to get together and she was very flexible. We met and chatted about what I expected and I instantly knew she was who I wanted to marry my fiance and I. I was extremely suprised with how picky I was with choosing an officiant, I thought it was going to be a piece of cake. It wasnt and I was so happy that I found Jan!

One of the biggest things was that the ceremony was done how I wanted it. This is exactly what she does, she works with you until it is perfect just the way you want it.

Thank you Jan for creating a beautiful ceremony for us!

In just the short time we had to get to know Jan before our ceremony I felt like she was part of our family.
Family members and friends alike all commented on how friendly and comfortable they felt with Jan.
During our first meeting with Jan she suggested we incorporate our 3 daughters into the ceremony. She was very reassuring and explained very easily to the children how the ceremony would go and even allowed our eldest to incorporate a Japanese ritual into the wedding. There wasn't a dry eye in the room.
There is no doubt Hsn added to the wonderful memories we will look back on with happiness

Jan [our minister] was truly amazing! She helped us the with the entire process from start to finish; conducting a pre-wedding meeting and staying in contact with us on a weekly basis. Jan also helped answer all of questions and calm our concerns. Since we are a Military couple, Jan was more than accommodating. On the day of our ceremony, Jan was early and met with me [the groom] and had all our paperwork ready. The ceremony went very smooth and without any problems, Jan was allot of fun. My wife and I were flying out that night and Jan even took it upon herself to file and mail the certified copies to the county so we wouldn't have to worry about that when we got home. If you are a couple about ready to get married, believe me Jan Smilie is the person to choose! We were completely satisfied. Thank you Jan!

Jan was amazing to work with. Since my Fiance serves in the military we decided to elope before the big wedding we are still planning. I called Jan on a Wednesday and we were able to make arrangements to get married the next evening. I told her I wanted the ceremony to be minimal because, I didn't want it to take away from my actual BIG DAY. She accommodated all of my request and was very prompt with returning my phone calls. She gave me a reasonable price and went above and beyond my expectations.

She took the initiative to contact us, propose plans and make recommendations. She also helped us to follow up with vendors, photographers, and caterings we hired.
On the wedding day she did an excellent job officiating the ceremony and made sure everything is smooth so we can enjoy our special day. She also charged very reasonable price, and it was definitely worth every penny of it.
Overall we were very pleased and we do hope she will continue to help other couples for their special moments.

We had some very nontraditional parts added to our ceremony, like our dog was our ring bearer. Jan was able to roll with the changes and keep on going.
