I believe your special day should be done your way. Whether you choose a short, simple ceremony, an elaborate event, or anything in between – it should be as individual, fun and unique as the couple. You may use my services solely to officiate at your ceremony or you can use my services to help plan your day. I work with area vendors – wedding planners, photographers, florists, musicians, and venues. Together we can create your dream. I invite last minute bookings and offer a military discount.

I can't say enough good things about Jan Smillie. She is truly heaven sent. My husband and I had the pleasure of having Jan officiate our wedding just a few weeks ago and I still have my guests commenting on how absolutely beautiful and touching it was. Jan went above and beyond when it came to personalizing our ceremony and preparing us for the big day. We took advantage of her expertise and recommendations when booking our reception venue which helped complete the our day on a delicious note. She is a joy to work with and we now consider her a true friend. I highly recommend her services if you are looking for someone to help make your wedding spectacular and unforgettable.

From the very beginning we absolutely loved working with Jan! She is not only professional and kind, but she is extremely easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor! Jan always returned our calls, texts and emails quickly, she was very understanding about last minute changes that we made and overall is completely amazing. She was able to create a beautiful ceremony for us and it was so reassuring just to have her there with us knowing she had everything under control during the entire ceremony. Our family and friends all complimented her telling us what a wonderful ceremony we had. We just cannot say enough about Jan, we would absolutely recommend her services. Thank you, Jan for a beautiful, special wedding we will always remember with love. Joe and Krissi

We highly recommend Jan for your Officiating needs! She was absolutely the best! We met with her a few weeks prior to our ceremony- she learned our story and asked us questions to get to know us better as a couple. She made our ceremony so personal and funny and we received so many compliments from our friends and family. She also helped communicate with our DJ and Caterer after the ceremony to make sure the rest of the evening flowed smoothly. She put all of our nerves at ease and we were really able to enjoy ourselves. She is a true professional!

I knew from our first meeting that Jan was exactly what my fiancé and I were looking for in an officiant. She took time to hear our story and really got to know us. The ceremony flowed with a mixture of our words and hers. A great experience from start to finish!

I am sure this side note may not clearly explain how amazing this womans gift is. She is not the cookie cutter officiant. She makes your day about you, your relationship, and love. Anyone would be lucky to have her there on their special day.

We did not get to have a consultation or even meet Jan before our ceremony because we were working on a VERY short time frame. We scheduled her on August 3rd, to do our ceremony on August 15th. Also, at 9 in the morning!!! Jan was so willing and easy to get a hold of.
I emailed her our information and a little story about how my fiance and I grew to fall in love. We were actually LATE to our 9am ceremony - and family was late as well - so we didn't start until 9:30am. Jan was totally easy going and never made us feel rushed even though it was our fault for starting late! We were also worried it was going to rain (outside ceremony), and Jan said she was totally fine with getting lightly rained on (as long as it wasn't down pouring!); she was SO willing to help make our day perfect. Luckily, the rain stayed away!

What she said at our ceremony was BEYOND what I would have even hoped or wished for. I was expecting a quick "I Do" traditional verse, but Jan added SO much more. Great stories, and the "red string" legend - she also made it personal for my fiancé and I based on the story I wrote her via email. She dressed appropriately and was not late even though we were! She gave us great information about our marriage license and she TRULY blew us away!

She also carries tissues for the bride and groom just in case =)

I HIGHLY recommend her. She went above and beyond for us, and also emailed me what she said during the ceremony so I can remember it forever.
SHE WAS FANTASTIC!!!
