Make It Yours Weddings and Ceremonies
Hi! I just wanted to say that Jonathan was extremely professional throughout the process with us. We wanted a fun and simple wedding - Jonathan delivered!
He did not fill our names in the blank with his same old service. He genuinely cared about our service, which was so nice (compared to a friend's ceremony who was not happy with her officiant).
He showed up early and took the time to get to know our family and friends. I had a funny middle name that I wanted pronounced. Jonathan nailed the pronunciation! Yep...it is the small things! :)
Jonathan was absolutely fantastic! Jonathan was in constant communication with us throughout the process, and he helped provide insight into how to craft the ceremony of our dreams. We loved that Jonathan didn't rely on a cookie cutter script/vows, but instead really took the time to get to know us.
I'm truly pleased that we were able to find Jonathan because he really understood how to make our day perfect. If he's available on your wedding date, do yourself a favor and book him now!
Jonathan was a huge help during my wedding planning. He was very flexible both in schedule and in what I needed done for myself and the ceremony. Hopefully I will never need to get married again, LOL, but I would definately recommend him to anyone who askes.
Johnathan, Listened and provided every detail I asked for. Made suggestions when asked. Responded promptly to my e-mails and phone calls. The Bridal party was impressed and let me know they were. Finally, Johnathan brought a peaceful ambiance to my very special wedding day and I highly recommend him.
The officiant (Jonathan) made our wedding unique for us. We had met with other officiants and they had a pre-set services. Basically, they just inserted our names. "Make it yours weddings and ceremonies" did exactly what their name says that they would do for us!
Jonathan met with us and designed the service. He understood that we wanted family members to play music, read poems, etc. He was extremely flexible.
Jonathan offered to do pre-marital counseling. The counseling was not required; my mother offered to pay for them. We did three sessions to help prepare us for some issues that we thought might come up (in-laws, kids, finances). We came to a mututal understanding in these areas. He also helped us better communicate our love with one another.
Jonathan showed up on time and acted professional throughout the entire service. He partnered with the wedding coordinator, so everything ran smoothly. By the time of the wedding, he was a part of the family, which was nice. My mother thought that I was being married by a stranger, so she was happy that I got to know him better.
I would highly recommend Jonathan with "Make it yours weddings and ceremonies" to anyone who wants to have a wonderful, special wedding. He started off my life as Mrs. Payton perfectly! Thank you Jonathan!
