Wedding in July 2016

“Hi Debbie,

I just wanted to extend our most heartfelt thank you for your service yesterday. With the heat and the preparations, I felt very flustered when we arrived at the arboretum but you handled everything so well and I immediately felt calm as soon as the ceremony got underway. It was beautiful.”

Wedding in November 2014

“Dear Debbie,  Thank you for being at our wedding-you made it more special than we could have imagined.  We are so grateful for the special touches you added to our ceremony and for the beautiful combo of professionalism and care you showed.  It made our wedding. Our families keep talking about how happy the ceremony was/we’re all surprised no one cried!  Thank you for making a wonderful day even better.   Yes, it’s true, you made our wedding so natural and warm and were thoughtful throughout the whole wedding process.  Thank you for your clear communications, professional demeanor and helping make our wedding day better than I could have ever imaged it would be!  Thank you so much!”

Wedding in October 2012

“Debbie came highly recommended by another JOP who could not officiate our wedding but felt that she would exceed our expectations. When Sean and I met Debbie, we knew immediately that we wanted her for our wedding. She was so warm, patient, and resourceful in ensuring that our needs were met. Whenever I had a follow-up question, Debbie was responsive and always willing to accommodate us. We knew we were in excellent hands. Debbie made our wedding incredibly special and even teared up during our vows. After, she checked in to see how we were feeling and provided kind wishes to us. In general, I would have Debbie officiate our wedding again if we wished to renew our vows. We are very happy to meet and work with Debbie!”
