I was late to the wedding and she was completely flexible. I was so happy with my officiant. She even offered to help my husband and I find a new church close by and talk my family down who were super angry about the marriage happening so fast. She was so sweet and easy going. Very formal and polite and very relaxed all at the same time.

Jeannie was the best choice we could have made to marry us. She was personable with our guest, attentive to me, and wasn't afraid to speak up when needed! She cared for us like she had known us for years, and took special care and notice of our one year old son. Jeannie made sure to keep us relaxed, cool and hydrated and smiling. I just wish we had found her sooner so we could have more time before the wedding!
Thank you Jeannie for bringing tears to everyones eyes, joy to our hearts and making our wedding day so memorable!

Jeannie was AMAZING the day of our wedding. She went above and beyond to make sure all the details were perfect and above and beyond what she was required to do.

Our ceremony was outdoors, she asked the venue to turn off a pump for the pond right behind the ceremony spot so the guests would be able to hear better (and they did.)

She knew the wind was blowing the opposite direction of where I was going to be standing for the ceremony. She asked if I wanted to switch sides with my soon to be hubby so the wind would be blowing towards me and my veil would not be blowing in my face. We decided that would be a great idea and switched sides. It may not have been traditional but it worked out perfectly that I was still able to wear my veil and it was not blowing in my face the entire ceremony. She also made sure my veil was securely fastened to my hair.

After the ceremony I wanted 1 big picture with all our guests in the lobby of our venue. She knew about this, stayed after the ceremony and helped the photographer get everyone arranged and ready. She then brought in my husband and I into the room where everyone was ready and waiting for us. She directed us to the front of the picture where she had a spot open for us. I felt like a celebrity being escorted in and then the first ones escorted out of the picture when we were complete. She really knows how to control a crowd when she needs to.

She wouldn't know all the little tricks or be able to control a crowd if she weren't experienced. She definitely is!

My husband & I are so happy we chose Jeannie to officiate our wedding. Upon meeting her, she makes you feel like you have known her for a very long time. We had our ceremony & reception at the same venue. If you are familiar with DiNolfo's Banquets...you know exactly what I am talking about. There was another ceremony going on at the same time as ours & Jeannie hurried them along so we can have the whole floor to ourselves! She was amazing. She also helped bustle my dress because the bustle broke! She scrambled around for pins to pin my dress up. She does it all! Beyond that she is super sweet & funny. Our guests loved the ceremony...thought it was beautiful. Jeannie writes out the ceremony far in advance for you, so you feel worry free leading up to the big day. She is also very responsive & honest with you. When my husband and I reflect on the big day, we always bring her up & how great she was. If we don't see her again, we will always remember her! Jeannie - thank you so much!!! We are so grateful to have picked you!!!

I wish we could give you 100 out of 100.
You listened to what we wanted and you did an out standing job with our
ceremony. Katrina wanted romatic, sweet and memorable and I wanted an
element of fun and playful. We both loved every minute. Thank you for
slipping in my love note to Kat. She was so suprised, I knew it would make her
tear up.
I am so glad you told us about taking pictures before hand it did not ruin the first time I saw her when she
walked down the aisle my eyes were glued to her. She looked so stunning.
Katrina said she felt like she was floating and her parents were hoding her so she
would not fly away. Her mom and dad and my mom and dad loved the ceremony.
Including our parents with them walking us down the aisle and in our tree ceremony
was wonderful. Our dads actually liked putting the soil in the tree with our moms.
I loved our tree ceremony. We both love doing landscaping and will always love our tree.
We had such a good time. Thanks for our fun rehearsal it was also a great memory.
Our wedding party said this was the first wedding rehearsal they liked. My grandparents gave
you rave reviews ! They loved seeing the wedding via skype ! It was so nice that you acknowledged them.
We are going to tell everyone about you. Thanks for caring about us and all the extras you did
to make our day wonderful. Katrina made a note to send you a pictuer when they come in !

Dear Jeannie,

Thank you for taking so much time when we first met. Explaining our options for our wedding ceremony made us feel so comfortable and allowed us to put in special things to honor our parents. We both are so thankful that you told us what a wedding day schedule looked like and why it was important to start early and rest an hour before the wedding.You were right it was an exciting and busy day. I am so glad you explained why it was important to have pictures before the wedding. It made the day so much more special. David and I loved seeing each other before the wedding it took a lot of the jitters away. You really went out of your way to help us both feel so relaxed, educated about weddings and comfortable! Thank you so much for noticing David looked faint !!!! I am so glad you asked him if he ate and got him food. It would have been horrible if he fainted ! We loved our day, our ceremony was amazing. Thank you for not only taking wonderful care of us but our family and wedding party. Oh and something that I did not understand but took your advice on having our rehearsal 4 days in advance. Well the day after our wedding I totally got it. The days before our wedding were so much more relaxed and the bridesmaids thanked us for not having it the day before! It really made a huge difference!!!

Thank you!!! You are the best!!!

Sincerely,

Val and David

I thought about how I would discribe you to our friends... wonderful, kind, loving,caring and professional

Jeannie, as you know we both were so nervous about our wedding ceremony. We thought we would make mistakes as we repeated our vows or say something wrong. mI hate standing in front of people and talking too !! When Garrett and I met with you we both knew right away we could relax. You explained things so well. I appricate you ansering all of our questions and I know I had more than any bride because of my fear. I felt so relieved!!!!!! Thank you for writing our wedding ceremony so early so I could know it was done and I could read it everyday.

I loved loved loved having the rehearsal the Monday piror and so did our parents and wedding party ! We all had fun at the dinner and did not feel rushed the week before the wedding. My mom kept saying I wish your sister would have had her rehearsal the days before ! Garrett and I had so much fun and all the worring I did was for nothing!! Once we went through it all I could think about was getting married.

I was so happy you came to see me before the ceremony. I felt so good. Garret said the same.
We both felt like we were just floating during our ceremony, no worries or anxiety. It was actually fun.
We loved our ceremony and got so many compliments.
My friend Maggie will be calling you to book her wedding.
Thank you for making this the most romantic, fun, relaxed and positive day! You were so caring and sweet. You made our wedding day a fabulous memory. I will send pictures as soon as we get them !

Dear Jeannie,
Wonderful, magical, romantic, sweet, endearing, perfect, easy ceremony planning,
happy, fun, relaxed, laughter, tears of joy, excitement and much more.
I wanted to write to tell you the words our family and friends used to describe
our wedding ceremony. We had such a wonderful time. I felt like I was
just floating though the entire ceremony. I am so glad you suggested the
shaded area at Pilcher Park .

Both of our moms and Greg's step mom loved you !! You handled the mom situation so well

they all felt important and loved.



One thing I was worried about when looking for an officiant is we wanted

the wedding to say who we are. We are not people of faith and some officiants

we talked to were really not to nice about allowing us to have what we wanted in

our wedding. When I first talked with you I thought now this is what a minister is

supposta be. Someone that cares for other and does not make demands on them and

force them to believe what they believe..



We just wanted you to know the extra time you put into every detail was so kind

and loving of you. You are one of a kind. A sweetie that cares deeply for

others. You made a wonderful memory for Greg and I.



Oh I almost forgot !! Having my dad walk me down the aisle and mom

mom stand when you asked "Who give this woman to this man?"

was so special to have my mom and dad say we do. The pictures of them

kissing me is one of my favorites. When Greg asked his grandma and mom

to walk him down the aisle Grandma stared crying. Grandma thought

she would bring the shells since her and Greg use to shell hunt.

She kept saying my baby boy. ( her 6'6 270 lb baby boy!!!) She has told all her

Dear Jeannie,
Wonderful, magical, romantic, sweet, endearing, perfect, easy ceremony planning,
happy, fun, relaxed, laughter, tears of joy, excitement and much more.
I wanted to write to tell you the words our family and friends used to describe
our wedding ceremony. We had such a wonderful time. I felt like I was
just floating though the entire ceremony. I am so glad you suggested the
shaded area at Pilcher Park .

Both of our moms and Greg's step mom loved you !! You handled the mom situation so well

they all felt important and loved.



One thing I was worried about when looking for an officiant is we wanted

the wedding to say who we are. We are not people of faith and some officiants

we talked to were really not to nice about allowing us to have what we wanted in

our wedding. When I first talked with you I thought now this is what a minister is

supposta be. Someone that cares for other and does not make demands on them and

force them to believe what they believe..



We just wanted you to know the extra time you put into every detail was so kind

and loving of you. You are one of a kind. A sweetie that cares deeply for

others. You made a wonderful memory for Greg and I.



Oh I almost forgot !! Having my dad walk me down the aisle and mom

mom stand when you asked "Who give this woman to this man?"

was so special to have my mom and dad say we do. The pictures of them

kissing me is one of my favorites. When Greg asked his grandma and mom

to walk him down the aisle Grandma stared crying. Grandma thought

she would bring the shells since her and Greg use to shell hunt.

She kept saying my baby boy. ( her 6'6 270 lb baby boy!!!) She has told all her

friends and shows the pictures. She says this is my baby boy !! How cute !











It was perfect !!

Reverand Jeannie was amazing! I don't even know where to begin! First off, my whole family loved her and she is so easy to get along with and talk to. She has a way of making everyone feel comfortable. She took a lot of time to write my ceremony for me and with my type A personality she honored all my ideas and choices, which I really loved. At my ceremony location there wasn't much guidance from the people that worked there, but she was so confident, prepared, and took charge and knew what she was doing! She's not just an officiant, she also helps with some of the wedding planning. I got to choose my own readings and we read our vows, which turned out to be so beautiful. She helped the men get ready for the ceremony and is great with the little ones. She also took more of her time to run through our ceremony an extra time during the rehearsal.

Thank you Jeannie,

It was a a beautiful wedding and we were so impressed!

Amy and Robert,
You both are amazing people. Robert when you read your vows to Amy, I almost started crying. Here you are a manly man, quiet and all of this boldness and emotion came out of you. Amy, you did a fabulous job with your vows, it really touched Robert. It was so sweet to see you both so happy.
I loved your dress with the red accents. It looked so beautiful on you.
The harpist was fabulous! Everything went so well. Your wedding party was great !!!! Giving roses to all the grandma's and moms was such a sweet thing to do. Your daughter was a little doll. It was so sweet when Robert picked her up. She just snuggled with him. I had such a great time being a part of your beautiful wedding and then watching you have so much fun taking pictures.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.

Jeannie,
You are by far one of the greatest women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. God has a plan and I thank Him for making you a part of mine. The moment we met I felt like we were old friends - you are just so easy to be around and your sincerity is so abundant that everything you do is truly so very kind and you can feel that you act straight from your heart. Daryn and I feel truly blessed to have you not only perform our beautiful ceremony, but also share with us the entire wedding. You, my friend, were not kidding when you told me you would take care of me. Boy, did you take care of me! You helped keep me calm, cool (literally), and collected. You had my back the ENTIRE time. You have no idea how happy you made Daryn by doing that for me - not to mention how happy you made me. We couldn't have done it without you - nor would we want to either. You are the best! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.. We will never forget how kind you have been to us! God bless you!
Love, Daryn + Natalie

We found Rev. Jeannie through wedding wire while looking for an officiant for our wedding. From our first contact with her she was very easy to talk to and responded very quickly. After our first meeting, my now husband, and I knew Jeannie was going to be a great fit for us. She is very easy to talk to and very professional. She helped us in the direction we wanted to go with our ceremony. After the rest of our bridal party and family met Jeannie, they all made a point to tell us how much they enjoy her. Even after the ceremony when she was at our reception many people asked if she was a family friend because she fit in so well with everyone. We would highly recommend Rev. Jeannie!!!

You both are the best !!! Your family was amazing. I really thougth your moms were best friends since you were little. What a wonderful ceremony.
You each showed who you were as people. Jason when you choked up your brother right away steped up to put his hand on your back. I have to say I have never seen a guy do that. What a great brother he is ! That is what I call a man. Courtney your personality showed in your vows. Your eyes lit up, you were turning your hips a tiny bit from side to side just like you did at the rehearsal. Loved your reception ! It was amazing ! I am so happy for you both and for your families. It is amazing when I see two families so happy. There are many many good times to come for your families ! Bless you both ! Keep in touch !

Thank you so much for helping keep me calm. I think I was the most nervous bride and you kept
saying I will take great care of you and everything will be great. You were right ! William and I really
enjoyed every minute of our ceremony. My grandparents, parents and Williams parents loved the ceremony! It was the perfect combination of sweet, romantic and a bit of fun. When William started teasing me during our vows and everyone started laughing it really helped me relax even more. I had no idea I would enjoy myself so much. Maggie and Andrea ( our bridesmaids ) are getting married next year and they both asked for your number. So we will get to see you again !! Everyone loved our tree ceremony. It was so unique and we have planed our tree and it is a wonderful reminder of our wedding day.
Thanks for all the extras you did. Everything was perfect !!

Rev. Jeannie performed our wedding ceremony. My husband and I were a little reluctant having an officiant marry us who was a "stranger." Rev. Jeannie did not feel like a stranger at all, in fact many people who attended the wedding thought she was part of the family based on how well she fit in. She met with us so we could get to know each other, and was very helpful in helping us plan a romantic ceremony. We wrote our own vows and she was very helpful in giving us examples and ideas to get us rolling. We couldn't be happier with our ceremony and Rev. Jeannie!!!

We had so much fun at our ceremony. We felt so relaxed and when Jake started
laughing it made me feel so relaxed. Having my parents walk me down the aisle ment so much to me
Jakes grandma was so excited when he asked her to walk him
down the ailse. Everything was such a sweet memory. We just loved everything.
Thank you also for talking with my grandparents when we had pictures. It is so hard for them
to get around with their wheel chairs and I know they feel left out at time. Grampa just adored you.
It was so nice of you to give us the extra time to make everyone feel welcomed and special.
You should have our pictures in two weeks.
Thanks for caring for us and helping us start our lives off right !!

Rev Jeannie was amazing!! She officiated our May 2013 wedding ceremony at the Butterfield Family Pavilion in Valparaiso and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. She provided us with a good variety of readings, prayers, and vows to pick from, but also gave us the option to write/choose our own if we wanted. She also gave great suggestions on a variety of unity ceremonies that we could have included. It was really easy to personalize our ceremony. I mentioned that we wanted something said about my rings because they were my grandma's. Rev Jeannie included a few lines in our ceremony that were so sweet and heartfelt they brought tears to my mom and grandpa's eyes. But more than the great ceremony, she was a HUGE help in the organization and flow of the wedding and with our very energetic 2 year old daughter. She literally held our daughter's hand and had her walk down the aisle (as the flower girl) before everyone else so that by the time I came in as the bride and be settled and not a distraction. Rev Jeannie went above and beyond by helping during dinner and after with our daughter giving our family a break from keeping track of her. We got lots of compliments on both the ceremony and Rev Jeannie. Our guests couldn't believe we hadn't known her our whole lives!

Our Home Family Wedding Barrington Il

We were blending 2 families with young 20's and late teens. It can be sticky at times because they each have their own wants and needs. So when I thought of getting married I thought OH NO ! these kids are going to drive me nuts. Well as soon as I told Jeannie of my delema she listened to everything we were going through and made such helpful suggetions. We did a tree ceremony so each child could participate. I wanted it outside on our enclosed huge porch and it was freezing and Jeannie just smiled.
All of the kids loved her ( miracle they all did at once ). We had fun, laughs and it was all very sweet. I could not have asked for anything better. Rev. Walton is an amazing person and officiant.
Don't hesitate hire her !

Our wedding was the most important day of our lives thus far (no children yet) and it was perfect! Jeannie was a BIG part of that perfection!! She is such a kind sincere lady with sweet words. Jeannie was very responsive, met with us to get to know us and what we wanted in our ceremony, she provided great ideas for our ceremony and guidance when we were ready to put the ceremony together. We had four other officiants to meet with and cancelled our appointments after we first met Jeannie. We both knew she was the perfect fit and didn’t want to waste our time. Our wedding was a romantic, vintage, intimate wedding with 60 of our dearest family members and friends. The ceremony was flawless! We welcomed Jeannie to stay for dinner, cocktails and dancing. It was lovely and we are sure Jeannie had a great time too. Since our wedding, over a year ago, Jeannie still keeps in touch with us. It’s wonderful to know that we were not just another wedding in her past, but we are a couple she cares about. Thanks Jeannie!!

Well I was I could say this is going to be a great review, But I rather tell the truth about Rev. Jeannie Walton's services. It all started with choosing her to be our wedding officiant, Everything was great at first! After a few times of being in contact with her she sent out our contract, We had filled out out and sent it back with the payment. We did not hear from her for weeks finally got back in touch with Rev. Jeannie Walton and had told us she never received our payment or our contract. Well THANK GOD FOR TECHNOLOGY I went online to my bank account and pulled up the image of the check she cashed with her signature right on it, We had emailed her the picture of it. After she received the image she never said one word about it ever again not even an apology. It was playing a game of cat and mouse trying to get in touch with this lady, She had told us she set up our rehearsal for 9/14/14. The entire wedding party arrived at location on 9/14/14, When we had arrived at the location the place told us they had no record of us having a time to rehearse there that day. I called Rev. Jeannie Walton over 15 times in a row to find out what was going on while having over 30 people sitting around waiting! Finally she picks up acts like not a thing is wrong, I told her that we are at the place for rehearsal her exact words were " O it was today" SHE IS THE PERSON THAT SET IT UP AND DIDN'T EVEN LET THE PLACE KNOW! On the phone she kept giving me the run around saying I will be right there in 15 minutes, Well what do you know 15 minutes went by than 30 minutes than 45 minutes finally arrived a hour later. When she had arrived we already rehearsed our selves not even knowing what to do but we had no choice because we had our rehearsal dinner reservations. She ended up telling us she cant do our wedding she has another one BOOKED! We had booked her months and months and months in advance paid her in full and our wedding is 9/20/14 she cancelled on us 6 days prior to
