Reviews for Your Personal Ceremony
Joanie married us on July 7th 2012. She helped us organize our thoughts into a very personal and intimate ceremony. It was lovely and we were very happy with how she handled our wedding. Thanks so much!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
Couldn't Have Done It Without Her
Pros: Accommodating, Calm, Professional, Open-Minded, Sliding-Scale Fee In February 2012, I contacted Your Personal Ceremony after finding their website online. I was looking for a non-religious officiant for my wedding who was still spiritual and familiar with ritual. Response was prompt from Joanie and soon we set up an appointment to meet with her at her home. The sliding scale fee made it possible for us to afford having the kind of wedding ceremony we wanted. When creating our ceremony she had a wealth of ideas but remained open to anything we wanted to do. She quickly responded to any email of questions or requests to make changes. She kept us organized and on track with deadlines and reminders. On the day of the wedding she came fully prepared and was a calming center for me. I was completely terrified of getting in front of people and right before the ceremony she came and held my hands and did a mini-meditation exercise with me and gave me great advice which really pulled me together and helped me keep it together during the whole ceremony. Overall, my experience with Your Personal Ceremony was positive. My only regret is that I wasn't able to get to know Joanie more- likely due to my own aloofness. We received so many compliments on the ceremony! Everyone said it was one of the best and most unique weddings they had ever been to. I will definitely use Your Personal Ceremony again for any ceremonial needs that I have in the future.This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
Joanie helped us create a ceremony worthy of the day's magnitude. I'd recommend her experience and attitude to any and all planning a wedding ceremony.This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
Everyone loved our ceremony!
Joanie and Yehudah performed a wonderful interfaith and inter-nationality ceremony for us during the summer of 2011. They were great to work with as we wove together Jewish, Christian, American, and Caribbean traditions into one coherent ceremony (all while keeping it short and sweet!). We were also able to put together a ceremony that pleased both our religious and non-religious friends and family. We would highly recommend them to any couple looking for a highly customized, completely personal wedding ceremony. Their experience provides enough structure to ease the ceremony development process along, while retaining enough flexibility to let the personality of the couples to truly shine through. You won’t be disappointed!This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
Last minute wedding!
Joanie took our last minute wedding and made it calm and collected. She provided us with great options over the phone and was well prepared on our wedding day even though we were not, her calmness was much appreciated through the chaos of the day.This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
Richard & Olesya's Wedding
As a guest, I thought that Joanie & Yehudah performed a beautiful and very thoughtful wedding ceremony for Richard and Olesya on June 1, 2010, at Ray's Boathouse Restaurant, Seattle, WA.This is the subjective opinion of an independent reviewer and not of Decidio, Inc.
