We loved working with Jemelle so much! She truly creates a one of a kind ceremony that is suited to the couple’s wishes. She was easy to communicate with and so helpful every time we spoke with her. Jemelle also has a very calming presence to ease the wedding day jitters. We started with an officiant and left the wedding with a friend!

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR DECISION TO MARRY THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE!
You met, fell in love and got engaged! You now desire to commemorate your love and life-long commitment for one another with a wedding. Whether you are eloping spur of the moment, having a civil ceremony, or planning to have the wedding of your dreams surrounded by your loved ones, I will produce the ceremony you envision. My main obligation as an officiant is to create the most heartfelt, unique memory as possible that will be treasured always by you and guests alike. It gives me great joy to join forces to craft a ceremony script that speaks to you and conveys your love story. Together, we will customize and personalize a wedding that reflects your relationship, your love and commitment to one another, and incorporate elements such as unity ceremonies and/or family traditions.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
It is very important that we fit well together, and this is why I offer a free no-obligation initial consultation before you sign any contracts or enter into any verbal agreements. We will talk about the things you feel are important to include in your ceremony and this is also an opportunity for me to learn more about the two of you and your relationship. This is also the perfect time to ask any questions you may have about me to ensure I am the officiant for you. These meetings are normally done virtually via Zoom to accommodate the world’s current conditions.
YAYY! You hired me!
If we are compatible and you decide to employ me as your officiant, I will send you a link to your electronic contract. Once the contract has been signed, and the retainer fee has been paid, you have me booked for your wedding! The payment information and instructions will be included with the contract.
Once the administrative items have been taken care of, we get on to the fun stuff! I will send you both a couple’s questionnaire (to be completed separately). The questionnaires are necessary in order to paint a picture clearer of your relationship and personalities in order to create a personalized and custom wedding ceremony for you.
Many couples choose to write their own personal vows, and I HIGHLY encourage this. When writing your own vows, remember who you are vowing to, and what you are vowing to do. No one knows your intended like you do. You know the things that make him/her feel loved, adored, appreciated, etc. So these are the things that you should vow. Have fun, be creative and enjoy this process! I can assist you with this process if you desire.
Don’t feel comfortable sharing your vows in front of other people? NO PROBLEM! I can provide heartfelt “repeat after me” vows for your ceremony.
Your wedding day is the best, biggest, and most significant day of your life, and it is my honor to preside over the ceremony! I will deliver the perfect ceremony, created to reflect your beliefs, personalities, desires and most importantly, the love you have for one another.
I will sign your marriage license after the ceremony, and unless we have specified differently, I will file the license with the appropriate court. I will email a copy of the signed license, the certified mail tracking number, and name change guidance.
