A Joyful Celebration! Weddings and Marriage Support
James & I were married by Rev. Sherry just this past Saturday, and we're still overwhelmed and humbled by the touching ceremony she wrote for us. From our first email exchange just over a year ago, I knew that she "got me", as hard as that can be at times! She wrote back to all of my inquiries with such thoughtful and complete replies, taking the time to write several paragraphs even. After meeting her in person, James said he loved her, as did I, and we were sold. During the year of planning and getting to know each other, we became Facebook friends and I sent her email after email - questions, thoughts, quotes, readings, worries. She responded to each email within a matter of hours, and always with kind, loving, calming and reassuring words. She took the time to get to know each of us, and that meant so much to us.
Sherry wrote us such a beautiful, thoughtful and genuine ceremony. She completely personalized it to us, and worked with us both together and individually to get every single word just right. I am so, so glad that we chose her. She was worth every penny, and I can't imagine anyone else marrying us. After our ceremony and at the reception, we had dozens of people tell us how beautiful & moving the ceremony was, ask how we'd found her or if we'd known her for years already. An older couple commented that they've been married for over 30 years now, and all the words she wrote, along with all the quotes and readings, made them feel renewed in their marriage. That they were reminded just why it is they chose each other, and are continuing to love each other now, over 30 years later. Everyone cried, and it was mostly men who told us that! I can't express my thanks enough. We love Sherry!

We had Janice as our Rev. and we are so happy that we chose A Joyful Celebration to officiate at our wedding. We met and spoke to Janice (and Sherry) quite a bit before our wedding. She really made us feel comfortable that the ceremony would turn out great, and it did! It wasn't boring or generic, it was things that we picked out and more about the two of us. I highly reccomend them!
Couldnt imagine our wedding without Sherry Mullins. She helped us out so much and was always there for us. She wrote the most beautifully perfect wedding script for us. So personal and nailed every aspect; it was a script meant for us. I had so many people tell me how amazing she did.. And, how did I find her? I think we were meant to find her. She has become a friend to us. And I can honestly say I love her :)))
Rev. Sherry did such a great job writing our ceremony! She was so helpful and really knew what to add to the ceremony so that both of our presonalities showed.
Rev. Sherry was brilliant. I got more complements on our ceremony that I ever expected. Rev. Sherry put together a story that was meant for my husband and I. She created something our guests continue to talk about; it was one of their favorite memories of our special day. Everything was done by email or phone. We meet only once, and Rev. Sherry told our story beautifully. My husband and I chose a custom ceremony, which is worth the slight added expense.
From the very beginning Reverend Sherry exceeded all of our expectations. We're living out of state, so we were unable to meet her in person before hiring her, but she talked to me on the phone for over an hour, explaining her background, philosophy, and the process by which she goes about creating ceremonies, as well as asking questions about us and what we're looking for in a ceremony. She made every effort to get to know us as a couple, and continuously sought input and feedback as to which themes and language suited us best. She was very responsive by email throughout the planning process. The week before our wedding she took the time to meet with us and go over some final ceremony planning. She was able to create a perfect ceremony that reflects our personalities, our relationship, and our views on marriage. We would definitely recommend Reverend Sherry to any couple wanting a truly unique, personal ceremony. It was a pleasure having her standing up there with us on wedding day!
Rev. Sherry wrote a perfect ceremony for us! We were very happy with her.
Sherry was a joy to work with, she was very responsive to emails, professional and personable. Her fee may be on the expensive side but she is well worth it. We definitely got our moneys worth with a very personalized ceremony. She worked in our favorite readings and personal stories. Day of she even helped cue our musicians and give directions to our attendants. We loved working with her and are very very pleased. Make room in your budget for her!
It is always a pleasure working with Rev. Sherry Mullins. She does a wonderful job of creating unique services for each couple.
The first time I witnessed Reverend Sherry officiate a ceremony, I thought that she must have been a close family friend for years. Shortly after this heartfelt ceremony had ended I learned that she had only met with the Bride and Groom once before the Wedding! She is extremely accommodating and an absolute joy to work with! -Amber Oberly, The Iroquois Club
There are really no words to describe the services provided by Rev. Sherry and her team at A Joyful Celebration! Rev. Sherry is one of the most wonderful, organized and professional people that you will ever meet. She will arrange a ceremony that is unique and special for her clients and she does it like no one else can. I had the pleasure of working with her throughout the 2010 wedding season and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am looking forward to working with her for years to come! Thank you Rev. Sherry!

Not a writer? Let us do all the creative work for you.
At A Joyful Celebration! we are NOT preachers, and we do NOT preach! When you take the religious address out, ceremonies get much shorter!
But, of course, this is marriage preparation optional; not required. I guess I don't see why couples are willing to spend more money on a wedding cake that will be gone before the night is over than on the marriage they are wanting to "last a life time..."
So we offer many levels of planning support that do or do not include our participation at a formal wedding rehearsal. Fees are charged according to your needs and our time involved.
