What our couples say about us.
For my 15-year vow renewal, I can't imagine it would have gone any smoother with anyone else besides Jessica. Never having met her, living in Florida, and trying to plan a surprise renewal for my husband in New York was certainly a challenge, for myself and I am sure for Jessica. She calmed my anxiety when I thought I couldn't make it happen and reassured me that it would be wonderful. The ceremony was everything I expected and more and I couldn't have been happier. She is a true professional and I am so happy I chose her to celebrate my marriage!
Jessica absolutely made our wedding ceremony the most memorable moment of our lives. We felt like she was part of our family. She understood that we wanted to showcase how important family and friends are to us and especially central on our wedding day. She embraced all of the personal touches we discussed with her and weaved them beautifully into our ceremony. She had great pointers on the flow and special moments for our ceremony. Her positive energy, professionalism, guidance, charisma, and warmth made our big day perfect.
Jessica was incredible!!! She took the time during our initial meeting to really get to know us as a couple (from how we met to what our families are like). She made our ceremony about us and not some cookie-cutter ceremony. We were totally at ease with her like a friend that you've known for years. She was able to take the tension of being the center of attention and make it feel like it was just the 2 of us.
My husband and I were referred to Jessica from Carissa Ceremonies by our wedding planner for our fall 2012 wedding. Neither my husband nor I belong to any religious institution or particular school of thought but knew we wanted to have a meaningful ceremony that was a direct reflection of us and our love story. Jessica was a huge help from the very beginning, she provided us with many samples of past ceremonies she performed for reference and offered up unique ideas and solutions for issues we had trouble working out ourselves.
Our ceremony went off beautifully, earning us (unprompted!) rave reviews from our guests in the days and weeks following the wedding. What is more, everyone who had any level of contact with Jessica mentioned how wonderful she was.
