Wade & Haley
“We can honestly not say enough amazing things about our officiant Jenny from our August Wedding! We wanted a casual, short and meaningful ceremony and that is exactly what she delivered. She was very warm and welcoming to the guests and we genuinely felt that the words she spoke were from her heart. From the beginning when she was available for questions and ideas, to the rehearsal and ceremony where she presented herself and our ceremony beautifully. She was AMAZING and we highly recommend her, she will not disappoint!”
Matt and Jamie
“Our officiant Jenny was fabulous – easy to work with and made the ceremony perfect! Highly highly recommend! So many of our guests thought the ceremony was done beautifully as did we.”
“We had Jenny Pankratz as the officiant for our wedding ceremony in July. She was amazing to work with right from the beginning, when we first met her up to and including our ceremony. She really wanted to ensure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted it to be, and worked with us to do that. Their website has great tools and examples of all the parts that are included in a ceremony and we were able to customize every part of it. We would highly recommend Jenny to other couples looking for a down to earth, enthusiastic and humorous officiant.”
S & R
“Jenny, thank you so much! We thought you did an excellent job! We really loved having you as an officiant and there was absolutely nothing I would have changed about the ceremony!”
Sonia & Michael
“From our first meeting, Jenny was absolutely lovely to deal with. With her help, we were able to create the exact wedding ceremony we wanted – something that was intimate, meaningful, and reflective of us and our life together. On our wedding day, she performed the service beautifully, and so many of our guests told us how special they thought it was. I would not hesitate to recommend Jenny as an officiant to any couple who wants a very personal and thoughtful approach to their wedding ceremony.”
Dasha and Aaron
“Jenny is a thoughtful, caring, organized, and fun person to work with. We were lucky to have her as our officiant and definitely recommend Jenny to any couple!”
Jennifer and David
“Jenny was beyond amazing as the officiant for our event. Jenny went out of her way to talk to us before our event, both on the phone and in-person, to walk us through what we needed and make sure everything we wanted was in the ceremony. The I Do My Way website was easy to use and a great way to organise a wedding – we were seriously so pleased that we could pick and choose everything we wanted in the ceremony – so cool! On the day of the wedding, Jenny was cool as a cucumber, even when I was stressed out, and really played to the crowd. Her words were reassuring and genuine, and she made all of our guests cry (which is a really good thing at a wedding!). I cannot recommend Jenny highly enough, I have never been to a wedding with an officiant so warm, welcoming, and genuine, and she really made the day perfect for us. Thanks Jenny!”
