Beautiful Personalized Pre-written Ceremony & Officiating $300
I have pre-written a beautiful ceremony that draws on the beauty of Lake Tahoe and the theme of love to create a memorable wedding. There are several options for customizing this ceremony. With this selection, I meet with you in person or by phone and correspond by email as much as needed until the ceremony is written and finalized. I attend your rehearsal to ensure that we all are prepared for your ceremony. On your wedding day, I arrive at your wedding venue and spend a few moments checking in with you. The final step is a beautiful wedding ceremony.
Custom-Written Ceremony & Officiating $425
We start with a meeting where we discuss your ceremony and your vision of your ceremony. Through a series of interviews, I learn more about you and your relationship–and a theme usually emerges. Then, I write a custom ceremony based on the story of your relationship or a theme and message that are important to you (such as trust or love or the outdoors or Lake Tahoe or ??) You have the opportunity to review the ceremony and request changes or alterations. I meet with you in person or by phone and correspond by email as much as needed until the ceremony is written and finalized. I attend your rehearsal to ensure that we all are prepared for your ceremony. On your wedding day, I arrive at your wedding venue and spend a few moments checking in with you. The final step is a beautiful wedding ceremony.
Custom-Written Vows $50-$65
Custom vows can make your wedding ceremony uniquely personal and memorable. These are the promises you make for your lifelong commitment together. I can help you capture your feelings and communicate your love by helping you to write personal and custom.
If you will be saying the same vows to each other, I ask for $65 to write a single vow.
If you wish to say different vows to each other that are individualized to each of you, I ask for $50 each.

What an amazing night… Jackie has a way about her that allows the positive feelings in the room to flourish and the love to shine through. We chose a very small intimate ceremony at a very unusual hour and Jackie was so flexible. Her focus is on what will make the moment of marriage the most meaningful and memorable to the couple, she will bend over backwards to accommodate. Highly Recommended! :)
If you're looking for an officiant who is personable, fun, easy going. Look no more! Jackie was amazing! She was so very helpful even in planning our elopement! She goes above and beyond her services (and her price!) I'm recommending her to all of my gals who are getting married! She's so personable and that was exactly what we were looking for. She made our special day magical and easy. I'm beyond grateful to have found her
Jackie was a life saver for our wedding! We lost out original officiate very last minute and luckily Jackie was able to help us for our Thursday afternoon wedding. Her professionalism and calm demeanor really helped our wedding be less stressful. I would highly suggest Jackie to anyone looking for an officiate.
Jackie officiated our May 2016 wedding at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort. We are so grateful to have found Jackie, she exceeded every expectation. For an extremely reasonable rate, she wrote us a beautifully custom ceremony that really spoke to us as a couple. She actually took the time to get to know us and her ceremony reflected that. She sent us numerous drafts and was happy to make any changes we requested. She was extremely professional, attended the rehearsal and wedding on time and in appropriate attire. She took care of the marriage license and everything that went with it. On top of all that, she was one of the most genuinely kind people I have ever met! You will not regret hiring Jackie, I cannot recommend her highly enough!
I could not be so happy with anyone else! She wrote the most beautiful, thoughtful ceremony! I was blown away by her! Nothing was cliche or trite, and she got to know us as individuals and a couple, which showed every bit in her ceremony. She went the extra mile to help us plan, and was ever-encouraging. She made everything she helped with perfect!
It was most important to me to find someone who I really liked as a person to officiate our little lakeside nuptials, (and trust completely with one of the most personal, profound moments of my life). I get the sense that she truly cares for people and believes in the marriage commitment. She really took the time to understand who we are and what we wanted. She is articulate, thoughtful, spiritual, kind, professional, wise, and she seems to do this because she loves doing it - I did not get that read from most of the package wedding providers. I am truly blessed to have had her there. I am extra-thankful that she was also a calm among my storm of cancelled flights and an accompanying all-night drive to Tahoe, traveling with family, and running late for our ceremony. She was utterly what we needed for our wedding day.
