  • We wanted to send you a note to show you our appreciation for your services. From the moment that we met you and went through the marriage requirements, we were impressed at how kind and thoughtful you were. As time went on, we became to see how knowledgeable and organized you were. Many of the tips and advice were very helpful the time leading up to the wedding, on the rehearsal, and on the wedding day. We appreciated your patience and professionalism during the rehearsal and admired the way that you stressed the importance of the job of the wedding party. The ceremony went so smoothly and so beautifully because of your training the night before. The ceremony itself was so intimate and special that I felt that everyone was actually a part of the ceremony. You spoke quietly and to us and gave us smiles and eyebrow lifts showing encouragement. I felt comfortable and relaxed. When I got choked up you told me to breathe and then I was able to continue. You have so much class and elegance, Joan. Thank you for making our day so very special and memorable. We will definitely be referring you to others in the future. Barb and Brent

    We just want to thank you once again for everything and making our day more special than I expected. We both enjoyed the ceremony very much as well as our guests did too.

  • We just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful ceremony you performed on Saturday. It was truly perfect!    Sandra & Westin 

  • What a treat it was to have Joan be part of our day. From the moment we met her at her home, it was clear that she would be perfect. Joan was warm, inviting and made us feel relaxed about making some of the biggest decisions that we'd need to make. We met with Joan several times, and slowly but surely Joan helped guide us through the process of all the decisions we'd need to make for the ceremony, advising us on options that we'd never even considered or knew were options! Our ceremony went perfectly and a large part of the reason (if not the whole reason) was because Joan helped make sure that everyone in our party completely knew their places in the ceremony and we'd practiced enough to be ready. Of course, when the day arrived we were late and it didn't phase Joan in the least! Calm, cool and collected...Thanks Joan - it really was a pleasure to have you officiate on our day.     Karalee & Jeff
