Joan Armstrong Davis is a very pleasant, kind, wise individual. My husband and I both really liked her and liked knowing her. We chose Joan as our wedding officiant because her personal website listed her specialities, beliefs and practices like we had wrote it!! She seemed to be everything we were looking for from a fundamental standpoint.

However, to the business of the wedding...we began seeing Joan for the required pre-marital counseling, which was very "standard" and was pretty much just us doing exercises out of a workbook, like budgeting and conflict resolution and goal setting. Although those were very valuable exercises for us as a couple, we could've looked them up and done them on the internet ourselves (and saved several hundred dollars!). What we had hoped to get from Joan were tools, advice and knowledge that we could use in our marriage to remain strong and be the best couple together we could be. Instead, we did a few workbook pages and a lot of talking (which I initially thought would've led to something productive, but it ended up only being a way for her to get to know us. Okay, that's fine, but we paid a LOT for her services and, well, didnt get much service for the money.)

Next thing, there was one specific part of the ceremony, the sand ritual, where I printed some verbiage that perfectly explained how we felt about and viewed this particular ritual and I asked Joan to incorporate that into the ceremony. It was not and I was disappointed. Nor, was the family given any instruction on how this event was to take place, so it didnt go as expected...

If I knew then what I know now, I would have paid her half as much money in total...and spent way more timing going over every little detail to ensure that it went just as we had hoped, instead of trusting that it would.
