Comments from some of my couples and guests…

Amanda and Daniel write
Thank you so much for performing our ceremony! We got so many compliments on the ceremony!!! I heard that it was the most romantic ceremony they have ever been to, that people loved how it was both English and Spanish and that the JP was amazing!!!

My Campground Wedding!
We had Penny as our JP for a fall wedding at a campground. Originally we had planned to contact a couple of other JPs in order to weigh our options but the moment that we met with Penny we knew we had found “the one”. She showed such an interest in us as a couple and it was clear that it was important to her that she understand exactly what we wanted in our ceremony. She gave us many different options for readings and ceremony content which made us feel like we were making it ours. Penny was always so easy to communicate with and very responsive.

During the rehearsal and the big day it gave us such peace of mind knowing she had it all under control. Our wedding was very much DIY and we didn’t have a planner or organizer. Penny was so graceful guiding the wedding party on where to go and what to do. The ceremony was seamless. She was a very calming presence throughout the ceremony which is huge especially if you start to get choked up.

We have heard so many comments from guests about how beautiful the ceremony was and how wonderful the JP was. People truly enjoyed it and because she made it so personal they also felt connected to it. Often times wedding ceremonies can be boring and repetitive. With Penny as your JP this absolutely will not be the case! We’ll continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a JP.

I couldn’t let another day pass without dropping you a note. I can’t tell you how many of our family and friends have made a point to tell me over and over “What a beautiful ceremony it was!” Yes,  Sam(antha) and David are beautiful people, but I want to thank you for the lovely, memorable, very special, touching service. You provided something very special that day.

A sweet note from Samantha and David:
I just wanted to make sure to give you a HUGE thank you from Dave and I for helping to make our day so fantastic. We are literally getting endless compliments on our ceremony … “That was the best ceremony I have ever seen” was heard quite a bit. We owe all the props to you! Thank you for making the day extra special for us!

Kind words from Amy and Andy:
The feelings you were able to covey to our family, with a perfect pinch of humor, was something only you could have helped them understand and feel. You made them a part of the vows Andrew and I spoke. For this there are no word we possess to express our gratitude for what you gave us, our ceremony, and our family.

After their wedding, Susan and John wrote a note...
“Thank you for marrying us. We are so proud and happy to be your “first”. Your words about the long and winding road of our relationship were perfect. The other guests were in disbelief that this was your first….you are a natural. It meant so much to me that your voice was guiding us along.”

Penny, you were wonderful and absolutely suited to perform weddings.
