Our Wedding Ceremonies are as unique as the bride and groom. They can be traditional or progressive - where couples choose a ceremony depicting their unique personalities and lifestyles. Ceremonies can also be civil and/or spiritual.

Our ceremonies can be:
Traditional: The traditional wedding usually takes place in a church or temple.
Unique: In a unique wedding the couple prefer to make a statement. They want their wedding to portray the characteristics of their personalities.
Contemporary: Some couples prefer having a wedding that is more personal but not extreme. Weddings in a favorite place add a contemporary flair without shocking your guests. These locations can be in nature or even at a museum.
Passive: Not every bride likes to be the center of attention, even for her own wedding ceremony. Many couples have private ceremonies and celebrate with their friends and family at the reception.
Civil: A civil wedding ceremony generally does not include a spiritual or religous element.
We enjoy creating a ceremony with couples and wedding planners that expresses the commitment of the bride and groom to each other and their partnership in marriage.
Couples receive a copy of 'Your Complete Wedding Ceremony eBook' to help create the wedding ceremony of their dreams. Read less

Cara was awesome! Definitely glad we hired her to do our ceremony. I enjoyed the freedom that my husband and I had to pick out our own vows and readings that made our ceremony unique and really about the love we have for each other. It was beautiful!!

Jill truly made our ceremony perfect & special. We had been prepared to meet with many people to find an Officiant, but after we met Jill at a coffee shop to get to know her we immediately knew we did not need to look any further. She walked us through our options, guided us through our MANY questions and was very flexible and responsive. We had to change our ceremony time due to an unexpected event at our venue and she was able to accommodate. Not only was she quick to respond to questions, she was also proactive in ensuring we had everything ready in the weeks leading up to the big day (I would have forgotten to bring the marriage license if she hadn't reminded me!). She was also so amazing in helping us to pull together OUR perfect ceremony in terms of content & order, including some personal "love story" peices that we asked her to weave in. She provided suggestions when we needed them, guidance in planning for keeping with amount of time we had wanted, and she is open to whatever beliefs/religion/rituals, etc that the couple would like incorporated. The execution on the day of was fantastic! Jill was very calm in guiding us through each step prior to & during the ceremony so that we felt at ease. Her calm energy, paired with how engaging she was in her speaking, left our guests smiling as much as we were! If you are looking for someone who will help you create & customize the ceremony that is both perfect for you and not dry for your guests, Jill is the one to go with!

Jill did an absolute excellent job officiating our wedding! She has a very happy and genuine personality that makes her a joy to work with. My wife and I are very laid back with the thought of planning every little detail of the wedding fills us with dread. With that in mind, Jill was great as she offered excellent advice for the ceremony and the rehearsal. The planning materials provided turned out to be a great reference for us to build a ceremony tailored to our liking. The ceremony turned out great with numerous guests commenting on how beautiful it was and how great the officiant was! I would recommend Jill or MN Officiants to anyone who would like a true professional that really cares about your wedding!

We absolutely loved working with Jill! She helped us accomplish our goal of a ceremony that was both serious and lighthearted -- we wanted our guests (and ourselves) to both laugh and cry. She was calm under pressure as we were nervous when reading the vows we had written. She even was able to ad-lib around church bells in the distance and a backfiring vehicle nearby for our outdoor ceremony. Several of our guests mentioned how good Jill was and we would highly recommend her to others.

We had Jill Englund as the officiant for our May 2014 wedding. We looked at many reviews before choosing Jill and we were very excited when we found out she was available. Our excitement turned out to be accurate. We loved working with Jill and she really was an instrumental part of making our day perfect. Jill is very down to earth and easy to talk to. She listens and she provided as much assistance as we needed. She was always very prompt in her responses and very professional with everything. She also worked with our wedding group very well and received compliments from my friends. She did not order or boss people around or act like this was just another job for her, we really appreciate that!

As you likely have read, Jill does a love story during the ceremony. This, as described, really makes the ceremony unique and powerful. I loved our ceremony, loved it. It was exactly what we wanted. It was meaningful and impactful and this was made possible in part because of the love story and how good Jill is at her job.

We would highly recommend Jill to anyone looking for an officiant but not wanting to lose anything by hiring someone you don't know.

We are so happy we selected Allan Lindgren. We married in Minneapolis but live in Dallas, TX. Given we were coordinating this long distance we did not know what to expect. Allan was easy to communicate with via email and telephone. We were also able to meet with him one time before the wedding. We instantly clicked. He gave us this wonderful exercise - to answer 4 questions about each other and send to him. What he did was turn it into a beautiful love story. He was able to personalize our wedding experience and not only connect with us but connect everyone there attending the wedding. He was the perfect officiant for our perfect day.
Thanks Allan - Debra and Margaret

Jim Albani did an amazing job officiating our wedding at the Mayowood Stone Barn in Rochester, MN. Jim was very flexible with his schedule to meet with us months before the wedding to go over details and to help us personalize our ceremony. We felt very comfortable when it came to the day of the wedding that Jim would do a great job and create the feel of the ceremony that we wanted. We received many compliments about the ceremony and how it was the most personal, emotional and memorable ceremony that they had ever witnessed. I cannot thank Jim enough! I highly recommend you contact him for your ceremony, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you,

We found our officiant Lori McNally through Minnesota Officiants. She is truly amazing, and made our wedding ceremony something we or our guests will never forget. Our ceremony was tailored to exactly what we wanted, while Lori offered great advice, added our love story and made it truly unique. She is professional yet calm and laid back. We were able to schedule and skype each other at will. We never met Lori face to face until the day of our wedding, but it did not matter we already felt the peace you would feel if a friend was your officiant.

I would recommend Lori to anyone wanting a truly unique and amazing ceremony.

The officiant we had originally booked had an emergency and couldn't make it with only an hour notice. No problem! Allan Lindgren swept in and without having talked with either of us still made the ceremony feel special and personal.

Jill officiated our wedding just over a month ago. We were looking to do a non-religious ceremony that felt exceptionally personalized, and was unique to us as a couple. My husband and were living out of state so all of our planning with Jill was done over email. Even through email, I was able to get a sense for her warm personality and sense of humor. She provided us with great input on our ceremony, but made minor edits where needed so it really felt completely created by us. We didn't meet Jill until a few days prior to our wedding, but within 5 minutes we felt like she was a long-time family friend. She helped me feel completely at ease during our rehearsal (which was quick and painless) and right before the actual ceremony. Our ceremony was easily my favorite part of our entire day. We've heard from countless friends and family that it was the most personal ceremony they've ever been to and that it really felt like us as a couple. Our goal was achieved. Looking back at our ceremony pictures, we literally smile every time there's one with Jill in it because we had SUCH an awesome experience working with, and meeting her.

My husband and I chose Jill Englund to be our Officiant. From the first time we met, we felt like she was making an effort to understand us and our vision. We had originally wanted a friend to marry us so that the ceremony would feel personal. However, we also wanted someone with experience that could offer us advice and guidance on all aspects of the ceremony. Jill has done MANY weddings and was great at giving us suggestions that met our vision. As far as the feeling personal piece, Jill adds in the "Love Story." Prior to the ceremony she asked us questions about how we met, what drew us to each other and what we love most and then she read our responses as part of the ceremony. It was so special to hear what my husband wrote about me. It made the ceremony very emotional and very special. And even though I had not known Jill for very long, it felt like a friend was marrying us. I highly recommend Jill Englund as a wedding Officiant!

My husband and I met with a couple officiants before we met with Jill Englund of Minnesota Officiants. When we met her, we just knew that she was exactly who we wanted to marry us. She is so warm, personable, and funny! She put so much thought in combining my husband's Jewish faith with my family's Catholic faith in order to perform a perfect ceremony. We received so many compliments on how great she was from both sides of the family. If you want the best- look no further!

Jill,

I just wanted to say again how absolutely wonderful it was to have you be a part of our wedding day! We received so many compliments from our family and friends, both regarding how you managed to corral and organize a large group of us for the rehearsal and how you did such a lovely ceremony. A few people remarked at the reception that they felt very "connected" to us because of the ceremony. In the days since the wedding, I've received a few phone calls from family members telling me how nice the ceremony was. My family is religious, and we are not, so it says a lot that we were able to have a ceremony that was true to us while "pleasing" our religious family members.

This whole time I've been planning the wedding, I've had it in my mind that the ceremony is just "something you do" and the reception is where the real fun happens. Well, to be totally honest, the ceremony was my favorite part of the day. It seemed like time stood still for a while. I knew you would do a great job, since I know how awesome you are at leading meditations. You have a wonderful aura and presence. I seriously could go on and on! I feel lucky to know you both as a friend and as my wedding officiant.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect.
Love,
Kirsten and Dan Lunzer

We went through Minnesota Officiants for our October 2013 wedding and it was a great experience. Our officiant was Cara Tollefson, and she was fantastic! She met with us initially to get to know us and understand what kind of ceremony we wanted. She paid close attention to the things that were important to us and gave us suggestions on items that we weren't as sure of.

Cara stayed in touch with us throughout the wedding planning and was very prompt in answering any questions we had throughout the process. She made us feel very comfortable. We received a lot of compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was, and what a great job Cara did. We couldn't agree more! We highly recommend Minnesota Officiants and Cara Tollefson!

Pete and Jan were very helpful in providing options and guidance to structure our wedding service and were amenable to all changes that made it suit us perfectly. They understood what was important to us and were able to set just the right balance between solemn and celebratory. Their warmth made it easy to be relaxed, so the event went off without a hitch. An obviously loving couple, each of them brings different strengths which complement the other's. We were so blessed to have them as our officiants for our beautiful day, and highly recommend them!

Mark was wonderful! It was a pleasure to work with him, and his suggestions were great. Mark is friendly, thoughtful and has a sense of humor which was very important to us. As a same-sex couple, we asked Mark to note the historic and civil aspects of our marriage. In his reflection, he talked about Minnesota's process to marriage equality but declared that what brought us to today was our love for each other. Indeed, it was.

After we got engaged we immediately started thinking about who we would want to marry us. Neither of us are affiliated with a church and we lived out of state so we knew this would be a challenge. After doing quite a bit of research we came across Minnesota Officiants. At first we were a bit hesitant to be finding our officiant "online" but after looking at tons of reviews we knew we would find someone who suited are wants and needs for our ceremony. We browsed the website and looked at profiles for each officiant. When we got to Jill's profile we just knew that she would be perfect to marry us. Jill was absolutely wonderful to work with. Even though we live out of state she made everything so seamless and stress-free. Jill had great suggestions to blend both our desires for our wedding and our families desires as well. There were so many personal touches throughout our ceremony, it was truly something we are so proud of! After the ceremony, we received so many compliments. Everyone loved Jill and her presence. She understood us, and it showed. Thank you Jill and thank you Minnesota Officiants!

We are a same sex couple and I can't lie, we were a little nervous trying to find an officiant. We didn't want someone who just "had" to do our ceremony because the law changed, but someone who was genuinely happy to marry us. And Jill was exactly the right person for that. One of the first things she ever said to us was that she was so happy that we're "finally out of the dark ages". Not only was she happy for us but was extremely enthusiastic to do our ceremony and could not have been more supportive. She also helped us so much, we were pretty much lost and had no idea what we wanted and she was like a super hero putting together a great ceremony. One of the greatest things about her was that she was totally open to change and never took it personally if we wanted to change something. She gently guided us and made us the most beautiful and personal ceremony, in fact, she is the reason we had the perfect ceremony. I could not gush more about how amazing she is! We love Jill!!!!

When we first met Jill, we knew she was the one! We couldn't even make it home without calling her to ask if she would be our officiant. She was so calm, so professional, and just so good at her job. She made us feel at ease and answered all our questions before, during, and after the ceremony. I couldn't have asked for a better day and a better person to help us join our lives together. I had way more than one person tell me it was the best, the most beautiful, and the most fun ceremony they had ever been to. I would HIGHLY recommend Jill to be an officiant at any wedding and could guarantee it would be perfect. She was absolutely wonderful.

Jill was amazing!!!!!!! My husband and I could not have asked for a better wedding officiant. She took the time to understand us as a couple and make our ceremony unique. The ceremony wasn't just about reading words from a piece of paper; it was about showing our personality and love for each other. She had great ideas such as us writing short love stories about each other to share with our family and friends. Everyone who was there said it was one of the best (and least boring) ceremonies they have ever been to. Jill always answered our questions and helped us feel ready for the big day. She had a wonderful speaking voice and great presence. We wanted our ceremony to be romantic and fun! It was definitely that! Jill even did the Thriller snap as we played the song for our recessional back down the isle. What a great day. Thanks Jill!!!!!!!!!!!

We could not have been more happy with Jill as our wedding officiant! Right from the beginning we had a good feeling about her, from her smile on the website to her professionalism, optimism, and expertise in helping to plan our wedding ceremony. Jill provided us with the perfect amount of advice during our planning. We were fortunate to have someone with tons of experience so our ceremony was beautiful, but it was personal as well. She offered great suggestions about how we could incorporate comments and pieces of our life together to make our ceremony more personalized and she did a fantastic job during the ceremony. She is sincere, offering a heart felt ceremony experience and we received many compliments from our guest on how beautiful our ceremony was. Jill is very personable and genuine - you can tell she sincerely cares about giving you exactly what you want for your special day. During out ceremony, which was held outside on a golf course, someone fired up a chain saw and then we heard an announcement about a person's tee time. Jill made a brief and appropriately funny comment about the noises and everyone got a good chuckle out of it. We thought it was great that she could keep things flowing after the distraction and it kept things light. We have already been talking to people about how impressed we are with Jill and her services and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sincere, genuine, and professional wedding officiant!

Jill could not possibly have been more phenomenal throughout the entire wedding process, from the moment we contacted her through our ceremony. All of our correspondence with her was wonderfully personal and friendly, while still being prompt and professional...giving us plenty of confidence in knowing she would make our ceremony something truly special and personal to us. Her Love Story component to her ceremonies is an incredible way to make the entire experience so unique and memorable for everyone both in and at the wedding, and her guidance in choosing other components (readings, vows, etc.) was so knowledgable without ever being pushy or demanding. The ceremony truly reflected us, and the feedback we received from guests was consistently "This is the most personal wedding we have ever been to!" Many people at the wedding thought Jill was a close family friend that has known us for years...which demonstrates how amazing she is! We are forever grateful to her for making our wedding the most magical day of our lives!

Jill did a fantastic job of officiating our ceremony (and rehearsal). She had a lot of helpful ideas and tips for making the ceremony both sweet and fun. Neither of us (bride and groom) are religious, but we do have family members who are. She did a great job of preparing the ceremony so that we can incorporate some aspect of religion while keeping the focus on the two of us coming together.

With all the craziness that goes into wedding planning, and all the last minute hecticness of the day itself, Jill was someone that we knew we knew would be fun, sincere, and dependable.

We were both VERY impressed with Jill's professional and knowledgeable approach. We loved her assertiveness when corralling the various family and friends in the wedding party during the rehearsal. She was polite, kind, and GOT THINGS DONE.

She made sure to understand the tone and direction we wanted in our ceremony. She offered invaluable guidance when planning out the ceremony. Neither of us knew much about wedding ceremonies, and the eBook and Jill's suggestions made planning easy. Friends and family have only had positive things to say about the ceremony, and, most importantly, it was exactly what my hushand and I wanted.

My husband and I both give Jill the MVP award among all the professionals we encountered during wedding planning. Do yourself a favor and hire Jill.

Lori is simply amazing! My husband and I had many troubles while planning our wedding ceremony, considering our Pastor cancelled just over a month before the wedding. We met with Lori, and even with the short time frame to prepare she created a beautiful ceremony. She took the time to make sure we were able to express our love in a way that fit us best, and one that was enjoyable for our guest as well. It was kind, warm, loving, and entertaining all in one; I have never my grandmother laugh so hard! My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to have Lori as a part of our wedding day!

Jill Englund was a fantastic wedding officiant. We were very cautious about finding someone online, but Jill turned out to be a dream come true. She was able to customize our ceremony to fit our exact wishes and she really took time to get to know us before the ceremony. Jill was flexible to work with and she made sure that our day was about us and what we wanted. I would recommend Jill to anyone who is looking for an officiant that will offer a ceremony that is full of faith and joy that is not necessarily linked to one particular religious denomination or church. She is highly professional, very kind and respectful and a complete joy to work with.

Me and my now husband do not belong to a church so we didn't know where to start looking for an officiant for our wedding. I came across the website for Minnesota Officiants and we read through the profiles. Cara Tollefson stood out to both of us right away, she seemed like the perfect fit for what we wanted on our wedding day. She is very personable, whenever we had a question, she would get back to us right away!! She helped guide us through writing our ceremony. Me and my husband are both laid back and we wanted our wedding to be about us and she made sure it was! And on our wedding day, she helped everyone make sure they knew what they were doing and made sure that the wedding started on time which was key for me. She was very organized and we got our marriage certificate back within two weeks! You can tell she really loves what she does and has a passion for it! I would recommend Cara to any future bride!!

From start to finish Jill handled everything for our wedding ceremony with humor, heart, and intelligence. Even working on short deadlines and working with a very busy bride and groom, Jill was fabulous. She worked diligently to get to know my groom and I so that she could piece together a ceremony that met the high expectations of our family and friends, as well as us. Jill was great at letting us know things that had worked well and not so well in ceremonies she had presided over before. That kind of experience is invaluable! Our end product was a thoughtful and personal ceremony that impressed everyone who attended. She brought our personalities to life through the ceremony's various components by using her amazing story telling ability, wit, and heart. I can honestly say that before the wedding, as far as the ceremony went, my groom and I barely knew what we wanted at all. Looking back now, we couldn't and wouldn't want to imagine it any other way. Thank you Jill!

Cara was so calm and collective during the ceremony it really put me at ease. Our guests loved the "reflections" and thought that really made our ceremony special and different from others. I would highly recommend adding the "reflections" into your ceremony. Cara was very attentive and responsive via email while working together. Overall, if we had to do it over again we would not change a thing. Thanks Cara!

Cara was very helpful with our initial meeting. We were able to figure out the details of the ceremony through the ceremony planning book and email. At the rehearsal we walked through everything and that was VERY helpful. I appreciate that she was willing to rehearse with us. She did a fabulous job of directing everyone.

We used Jill Englund as our officiant for our wedding service. Jill was outstanding from the start! From the first telephone conversation we shared with Jill, we knew she would be great. She was professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. We had to change both our ceremony venue and time, and she was very flexible and supportive in working with our changes.

Jill does an excellent job offering several options for your ceremony, to make it both personal and meaningful. Her officiating at the ceremony was second to none. She is sincere and does a wonderful job telling your own personal love story. Our family and friends were both laughing and crying throughout the ceremony. We had several guests tell us that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended, and we owe that all to Jill!

We would enthusiastically recommend Jill to all of our friends and family! You will not be disappointed.

Jill Englund was our officiant and let me tell you that, because of her, the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She perfectly reflected our personalities during the service and we literally couldn't have asked for a better officiant!
You can't imagine how many people came up to us to say that it was the best ceremony they've ever been to and that that was the first ceremony they'd been to where they learned even more about the couple than they knew beforehand. Usually the guests have a good time during the reception, but at this wedding they also had a good time during the ceremony, because of Jill. She made everyone laugh and cry...just what we wanted ;)
She was so flexible, friendly and easy to work with!! We would recommend her to anyone!
Thanks Jill! You're the best!

She was very helpful in laying out our ceremony and did a wonderful job helping us create something unique and special to us! The thing I most appreciated about Jill was her calm yet assertive personality. She politely directed everyone to where they needed to be and I didn't have to worry at all about telling people what to do, she really took care of it all! Our ceremony went perfect & Jill did such a wonderful job helping keep us calm and directing us when we needed it :) If you are looking for an officiant I highly recommend Jill, you won't regret it!!

I found Minnesota Officiants through a friend whose wedding I attended and thought was the most personalized ceremony I'd ever witnessed. She had a great experience so I read all the bios on the website and found someone I thought would be right for us. And she was. We had an instant connection (and found out we even grew up blocks away from each other). She was so patient and helpful throughout the whole process. She did everything to make sure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. It could not have been any more perfect. Everyone raved that our ceremony reminded them of why they got married or why they want to get married. It was beautiful. I'm forever grateful to Jill.

After meeting with Jill for the first time, we knew she was the one we wanted to marry us. Great personality, outgoing and confortable in her role. Jill was very helpful. She was quick to respond to any questions we had during the 2 years of planning. We were very impressed with our ceremony and have recevied numerous complements as well.

We were married on June 23, 2012. We had the pleasure of working with Cara. We were a little nervous when initially looking for an Officiant. Neither of us was overly religious and had never been married. We wanted someone to help guide us in our process and help with all the little decisions. Needless to say we were more than impressed with the service we received from Cara. From the first meeting we knew we had someone would treat our day just as special as we would. We had numerous communications with Cara and she was always responsive and willing to offer advice and willing to sit down when needed. The wedding EBook was amazing with helpful Ideas. We loved working with Cara she helped make our day memorable. We actually felt a connection with Cara and at the end of the day came away feeling like our Officiant was a family friend even though we had only worked together for short time. I would strongly recommend Cara to be an Officiant for any wedding because I know she will treat it as importantly as you would want from someone who is such a focal point of the service.

She worked around family concerns and comfort-levels, and provided so many suggestions and wisdom from all of her experience.

Jill was extraordinarily willing to customize the ceremony to what we were comfortable with (casual vs. formal, spiritual vs. secular, etc.) In fact, all of MN Wedding Officiants do this, which is so important.

Also, the e-book from Jim Albani was very useful. All in all, my husband and I would highly recommend Jill Englund and MN Wedding Officiants to anyone looking for an officiant.

We could not be happier with our experience of working with Jill for our wedding. From our first meeting with her, we could tell that Jill has a vibrant and positive personality that is absolutely contagious. She was prompt with returning communication and open to our thoughts and ideas about our wedding ceremony. The end result was the ceremony of our dreams that reflected us as a couple: where we have been, who we are, and where we hope to be in the future. Jill was always there to answer questions we might have and to offer helpful suggestions that only a professional could. Her fee was reasonable and it was worth every penny to pay a little extra to have a rehearsal as this alleviated many of our jitters on the day-of! We are very, very happy with our experience with Jill and have highly recommended her to all of our friends.

I received a glowing recommendation from a friend who attended a wedding where Jill was the officiant - my friend said she never remembers wedding ceremonies but she did with Jill's service. I contacted Jill right away and lucky enough she was available! Jill always responded immediately and led me in the right direction, I had no idea what I needed to do or get ready for a service. Before I even asked her for guidance she had already sent me the appropriate information to begin - first came this wedding package, it was a 200 ish page document that showed many different options for ceremonies, at first it was overwhelming but upon taking a closer look it was broken down really well - religious, non-religious, different types of ceremony styles etc. John and I had a general idea of what we did and did not want - for example a sand ceremony - there were tons of pages of different options for that so we were able to skip right over certain parts.

Before committing to Jill we wanted to talk with her and make sure that we liked her - the conversation was easy and we knew right away that we were talking to the person that would marry us! When the ceremony got closer, Jill took a few things out of the wedding package and sent it to me - it seemed as though she already knew what we wanted in our ceremony before even talking to me! I took some of her ideas and some of our ideas and meshed them together.

Jill also sent us 5 questions - like "what do you love about John" I answered them in private and John answered them about me in private. Jill incorporated our answers into the ceremony, I thought this added so much to the ceremony, it really let our guests get a feel for our relationship and let them know why they were there. Jill can also work on the fly – we got married on a busy river with a lift bridge in the backdrop of the ceremony, a couple of times during the ceremony the passing boats would toot their horns – Jill somehow used this and added laughter into the ceremony.

I have received glowing recommendations on the ceremony – Jill did a fantastic job! I would highly recommend Jill to anyone!

We didn't start planning our wedding until about a year and a half after we were engaged, but when we started we found a venue rather quickly and planned our wedding in only 8 weeks! Nancy was available on short notice, and still found time to meet with us, discuss our vision, and produce a lovely ceremony. She was warm and personable, and made us feel completely comfortable on our wedding day. Prompt, professional, and very helpful throughout the whole process.

We found her on google and picked her randomly from a list of people and we are super happy with our lucky choice. She was responsive to e-mails/phone calls, met us prior to the ceremony to go over our ceremony options, was timely and professional the day of and overall did a super job. I would recommend Jill...having an experienced, reliable officiant is extrememly important for your wedding. I had zero worries about the ceremony thanks to her.

Jim Albani Was fantastic in every way possible and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the moment I contacted him via email I knew he was the right officiant for us. I especially loved his customized ceremonies, as we were not looking to have a traditional religious ceremony. The samples he provided for content were way above and beyond that which I had invisioned, and exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The personalizations he provided including the rose and hand ceremonies were so meaningful to us and helps set the stage for a long lasting marriage. This guy was absolutely great and would definitely recommend him to anyone engaged to be married!

Jim Albani makes everything so easy!!! He is so well organized that you do not have to worry about anything with your ceremony. He has an eBook that lays everything out (and you have a say in everything you want). Most importantly, he knows how to calm down an OCD groom haha. Our wedding was in December and it was one of the first snow falls. The ceremony was delayed because of the snow and as I was taking pictures Jim was calming down my groom about the snow delay. He has a great sense of humor and really enjoys what he does. If I could do it all over again, Jim would be my Officiant. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jim! From, Jeff and Jami Parker

It was a pleasure working with Jill Englund. She was very professional and had great ideas to make our ceremony memorable. We received many positive comments about her "Love Story" idea. It was both beneficial for our relationship and entertaining for our guests. We would recommend any persons not closely affiliated with a specific church to request the services of Jill. She catored to our religious values, provided useful ceremony materials and experience, and delivered a great performance.

With less than a month before the wedding, we were still looking for a wedding officiant when we found Kate! She was very helpful in getting us started thinking about what we wanted in a ceremony, and gave us their wedding ceremony ebook to look over until we could meet. We loved her as soon as we met her! She was very nice and professional, and made us feel at ease right away. We went over the whole ceremony. In the few weeks before the wedding she was very quick at answering any of the questions that we had. Kate did everything she could to make our ceremony memorable, special and personal! Everyone still talks about how wonderful the ceremony was. We are so happy we went with Kate, and we highly recommend her! Thank you so much Kate for making our wedding day special!

We did a lot of research to choose our officinat and ended up choosing Jill Englund from Minnesota Officiants to perform our wedding ceremony. We could not have been happier with our decision! Jill was just amazing!!! From day one she was extremely responsive and helpful.

After our initial meeting we walked away knowing that Jill has a special gift for working with people. She makes you feel so comfortable and at ease, like we had known her for years!!

She arrived early for our ceremony and immediately was helping resolve our last minute hiccup of forgetting our music. When I was told she was helping pick something new out I knew I could totally relax as I completely trusted her judgement. She kept things moving on time and had such a strong calming presence.

Our ceremony was wonderful and very personable thanks to Jill! She patiently encouraged and worked with us to make sure our ceremony was special for us and our guests. She had our guests both laughing and tearful, with everyone commenting on what a great job she did.

We would highly recommend Jill, she is honestly one of the best in her field!!

Jill Englund was a wonderful officiant for our wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better officiant or ceremony. Jill was professional and responded quickly to any questions we had. Jill took the time to talk with us in order to help us decide on what type of ceremony we wanted. Jill was open and flexible to tweaking each part of the ceremony in order to reflect what we wanted. Jill did a wonderful job running our rehearsal and keeping everyone on track. We loved our ceremony and Jill made us feel at ease. We had so many compliments from guests afterwards on what a wonderful job Jill did and that they loved the "Love Story." We would recommend Jill as an officiant to anyone and we're so glad she was a part of our ceremony.

When our officiant backed out at the last minute, MN Officiants came through to help us find an available minister, and they did it very quickly! We were extremely lucky that Jill Englund was available because she was fantastic! I cannot recommend her enough! She was prompt in contacting us and was very helpful in tweaking our ceremony to make it even more special. She arrived in plenty of time and helped us get it together those last moments before the ceremony when you are super frazzled and nervous. We were comfortable with her from the start, and with her help our ceremony went smoothly. Everyone was raving afterward that it was the best ceremony they had been to and we couldn't agree more! Her "4 Questions" made it very personalized and special. If you are in need of an officiant, look no further because Jill is your gal!!

I will be the first to tell you that I was nervous when we looked for our Officiant for our wedding. We met Jill Englund to see if she would fit the style that we were looking for. We talked about the family logistics that were a concern for us, (the grooms parents were not invited). Jill brought ideas up to us that we had not thought of which put us at ease. After talking it out, we felt very comfortable in trusting what Jill thought. Jill had us e-mail her our vows and then responded back with questions of how to "fine-tune" our vows to make them custom for us. She was very professional and our wedding went smooth as could be. I would highly recommend her for your special occasion.

Jill was everything we could have asked for and more in an officiant. She was friendly, understanding, organized, quick to respond to e-mails, and overall a very kind, open-minded, and open-hearted person. We had a blast joking around with her at the rehearsal, and when I got frustrated with my bridal party and had a mini-meltdown, she just kept right on trucking through what needed to get done without getting dragged into my personal drama. She always knew what needed to be done and was always honest and to the point. Jill had great suggestions for details we hadn't even thought about, and clearly has a lot of experience officiating and mitigating sudden problems. She was a great public speaker and has a very calming voice when she officiates, so it was just an overall great experience. I can't imagine having chosen anyone but Jill, especially for a diverse ceremony like ours where people all have different backgrounds, beliefs, and relationships to one another. If we ever do a re-commitment ceremony, I'm calling Jill again. Seriously.

We go camping every summer with our cousins. This year, Chris and I decided to surprise everyone with a wedding. While everyone was busy at the lake, I went to town for "allergy medicine". I came back in my wedding dress, with our officiant Jim, and we got married right there, by the lake, where we were all camped out for the day. It could not have been more perfect. We didn't get a chance to meet Jim before the ceremony, but it was like he had known us for years. Chris and I were blown away by the readings Jim chose for us. Everyone was surprised and it was awesome!!!
I would definitely recommend Jim to everyone I know. He was fantastic!!!!

He was courteous and professional every time we met with him, was very accommodating to the specific needs of our ceremony, and presented us with a wide variety of options to choose from to craft our ceremony. He was always on time and, during the ceremony itself, he crafted an improvised introduction that was touching and unique.

We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests about how much they enjoyed the ceremony and we have no regrets whatsoever about choosing Jim to be part of our big day.

When I was looking for an officiant, I had searched a few places. Nobody seamed as excited to officiate our wedding as much as Cara! Right off the bat she was warm and welcoming and was very prepared. If she didn't have and answer to a question she got back to me within the end of the day or sooner. I had her cell phone number so at any time during the night (Within reason) Id get an answer. She was at the ceremony early and did a beautiful job performing the service. She gave us advice on how to get through the E book with ease. It’s an overwhelming book. If I went back in time to pick an officiant again Id pick her.

We found Allan Lindgren online when planning our wedding. We only met once after that everything was conducted via email or phone because we were over an hour away from where we had planned to be married and where Allan resides. We were a bit concerned about how personal the ceremony would feel since Allan didn't know us, but with some well chosen questions on his part to each of us separately he created a touching and heartfelt "love story" into our ceremony. Several people told us how touching our ceremony was and Allan definitely aided in that. We would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant!

It was nice to work with someone experienced that could guide us through designing the ceremony. Also, she just plain did a great job during the ceremony itself, she spoke clearly and confidently. Also, I really enjoyed the opportunity to have a more personalized ceremony versus a sermon -- this was a wonderful benefit of using Minnesota Officiants, many guests commented on how they enjoyed the personal nature of our ceremony! I think it was definitely more attention getting than the average ceremony. There were lots of laughs, but also a lovely tone of sincerity. I would definitely recommend Jill! Also, I did overhear that our Wedding Ceremony site really enjoys working with Minnesota officiants.

My wife and I were married by Jason and he did an excellent job. We had to plan the wedding remotely as we were living out of town at the time which presented some challenges but he was great about asking us a lot of questions to make sure we had the best experience possible.

Jason made himself available during the rehearsal which was very helpful. He helped make sure the ceremony was seamless and worked well. He was very professional during the process and helped put our minds at ease about the upcoming wedding.

The ceremony itself was excellent, largely due to Jason's positive and happy demeanor. He kept the mood light for our guests and took the pressure off of my wife and I (which we both appreciated). He was flexible in adjusting things at the last minute which was very important as we were tight on time. I would recommend Jason to anyone looking to have a great ceremony. Our guests loved it and we will remember it for years to come.

Jen Gori was our officiant and while she definitely knew what she was doing, she was frankly pretty rude to my guests and to myself during the rehearsal and the actual ceremony. She seemed very upset when the rehearsal started a little late (she'd written down the wrong time and thought it was an hour earlier at a different location), and left immediately after the ceremony because she had a prior commitment. She was, therefore, incredibly rushed the day of the wedding, and got irate because I didn't know where my planner was with the paperwork that we needed. It was very stressful working with Jen. Also, she had us fill out a worksheet for the ceremony and pretty much read our answers verbatim instead of writing something original. Although we met for coffee when deciding if we wanted to use her as an officiant, we barely talked during the process except when she contacted me to try to sell me a photo booth service I didn't want. I was pretty disappointed with Jen. However, she did send in my certificate quickly, which was nice.

Review of:Allan Lindgren
Mr. Lindgren was the officiant at my daughter's October 12, 2013 wedding. He basically ruined her ceremony. He put no feeling into his speech and rushed through it. Even if it's nothing special for him to perform a ceremony, it is something special for the couple and their friends and family. To make matters worse, he mis-pronounced the groom's name more than once. Even after I had phonetically sounded it out for him. ROW-DOLL-FO (Rodolfo). He called him Rudolph more that once! Really? I couldn't even see straight I was so mad!
