I became ordained in June 2007 and performed my first ceremony that September. I truly enjoy this part of the day, it brings me so much joy to perform the ceremony and help a couple express their love and commitment to each other. My fee is $350. That includes meeting with you and your fiancé, going over options for your vows, travel (up to 100 miles RT for free, over 100 miles is .57 a mile) and performing your ceremony. If you choose me, than I require a $100 deposit to hold the date for you. If you require me to come to the rehearsal, I charge an additional $50.

In the 8 years since I became ordained, I have performed over 180 ceremonies and have consistently received the Bride's Choice Awards since 2010. I love meeting new couples and helping them create a memorable ceremony! I perform wedding ceremonies anywhere from So. Lake Tahoe to Monterey Bay and the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.

I look forward to possibly being part of your day! Please contact me at janettesayyes@gmail.com or 925-683-1187. Read less

My husband and I planned our wedding in 10 days, and couldn't have done it without Janette. She was so quick to respond and commit to our request to officiate, it was an incredible relief for us! She is unbelievably organized. She provided us with every option for our service, enabling us to customize it to reflect the nature of our relationship and personalize it as if she had known us forever. We lucked out in a number of ways and were able to contract an incredible team that made our pop-up wedding go off without a hitch, and Janette was undoubtedly our quarterback! Myself and my entire family would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding official for their most special day. She will lead it with grace, and deliver it genuinely with confidence. Thank you again, Janette!!

Jannette performed a beautiful and sensitive ceremony that was especially catered to our vision. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful with the planning. This included our vows and gorgeous arrangements of flowers for the ceremony and reception. She went out of her way to bring the beautiful arrangements to our reception and when we arrived everything was perfect. Out entire ceremony and reception was beautifully decorated with no effort on my part. Janette made my vision for my wedding come true with no effort or stress for me as the bride. I highly recommend her to any bride who requires a professional with a sensitive and loving touch.

Loved Janette the first time we met her.Such a sincere and sweet person. She was our officiant and she did our flowers and decor too. Janette was so professional and beautiful at our wedding day.
I am happy that we picked her. It was not easy planning the wedding, I could not make up my mind about anything :) but still she was so patient with me and guided us through the process. My bouquet was beautiful, my Aunt who is so hard to please, loved it! Our centerpieces were so elegant, the Arch was exactly how imagined it to be. You are lucky if you get to pick all the right vendors for your wedding that will really deliver and make the effort to make it special. Janette did not let me down. Thank you for everything :) I highly recommend her, so worth it.

Janette is such a real and genuine person. We were impressed from the start and something in our hearts told us Janette was right for our wedding.

In our first meeting, we discussed what kind of ceremony we wanted and Janette gave us an outline of the types of things she would say and even recited some lines so we could get a feeling of how it would sound spoken. It was very convincing and gave us a sense of her delivery, I even got a little emotional. Afterwards, she provided a workbook that guided us through the ceremony options, allowing us to mix and match different components of the ceremony. Her whole process really puts you at ease. We liked that we could approach it in this fashion because we were able to create our own personalized ceremony.

Janette took great care and worked with us to get the ceremony and the words spoken to be what represented us as a couple. She was very prompt with email throughout the process and we did all of our ceremony revisions through email which was super convenient. She also sent in the application for the certified copy of the marriage license and since she is a public notary, we didn't have to worry about anything after the ceremony.

We're thankful that Janette attended and led our rehearsal because no one knew what to do, where to walk, or where to stand. Janette has done many different types of weddings and she was able to easily incorporate our traditional tea ceremony and gave us options for when and how we'd like to fit it into the ceremony.

On your wedding day, your only hope is that the vendors you choose bring their very best on the day you need it most. Janette most certainly came through every step of the way. Everything flowed smoothly and the ceremony was lovely. She was wonderful to work with and very kind and personable. We would definitely recommend Janette to any couple. Say yes to Janette!

Janette was such a joy to work with. I only had about 2 1/2 weeks before my wedding to find an officiant and Janette called me within an hour of contacting her via her website to let me know she was available. I was surprised at the responsiveness but so grateful she was able to fit us in to her busy schedule. She was so nice and easy to work with, and she provided us with a binder full of choices of passages and ceremonies that we could mix and match to customize our own ceremony. The day of, she was so professional and warm, and really put us at ease that everything would be taken care of. We have had so many compliments on what a great job our officiant did and that they really enjoyed her work at the ceremony. Something special to me was that I had forgotten to get my handwritten vows back from her before she left and was worried that I would never see them again. She mailed them to my In-Laws house and I was so grateful and pleasantly surprised to see them at out place when I got back from my Honeymoon. I would definitely recommend Janette to anyone I know getting married and I'm so thankful to Courtney at Crooked Vine Winery that she recommended Janette to me. Janette really helped make our day special. Many thanks!

We were so thankful to find Janette. She was responsive, friendly, and professional. We wanted a short, non-religious ceremony without much fluff, but also not dry. Janette provided a packet of suggested language and options for the form of the service, so we were able to simply go through and pick and choose which portions we wanted included, which we wanted to strike, edit some of the language to our taste, piecing together our ideal ceremony. When the time came for the service, it was obvious (in a great way) that she had rehearsed - clear speech, no stumbling, etc., and not just reading from the page. Also, I really appreciated that she dressed in neutral attire so that the focus was on us in the pictures from the ceremony.

We never actually met Janette before booking her as our wedding officiant. Our interactions were via telephone and email but from those conversations, Janette was very personable, accomodating, patient, kind, and detailed. Our first official face to face meetup was during our rehearsal day. Janette actually showed up a few minutes early and was all ready and set to get the show started. She was really friendly and had a beaming smiling the whole time and really did make sure both myself and my soon to be husband felt comfortable. Since she works regularly with our wedding venue, both her and our wedding coordinator worked very well together to give the bridal party clear directions and lots of good pointers on how to make our wedding day flow smoothly. I even had family members comment to me on how organized Janette was.

Work ethics wise, Janette is the total package. She spoke very clear at our wedding and she was very warm with our family and guests. We could not have been more happy with having her as our wedding officiant. Even though we only met her for a brief hour the day before, I never felt like she was a stranger at the wedding. I love happy people and Janette definitely depicts that. I would recommend her to anyone who is searching for a friendly and sweet officiant. Thanks Janette!
