Certified Celebrant and Ordained Minister
I just wanted to take some time and thank you for everything. You really helped make our day as special as possible. You were great! I loved how you created our ceremony for us. Thank you again for all you did.

Dear Rev. Rogers,
Joe and I can't express enough how grateful we are to you for helping us create the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding!
As you know, this is a second marriage for each of us and was even more important than ever that we create our new beginnings with a moment that was especially meaningful to us and our families.
As a multi-faith family, we didn't know how to begin to put together something that honored our Jewish and Christian faiths without it looking like some hodge-podge of mix and match items that didn't make any sense. You understood and carefully created the most unique and heart-felt ceremony that not only included our deeply spiritual beliefs, but you even included ways for the children to take part and feel like it was their moment also! It all came together with such grace and harmonized together magnificently.
But I must tell you, including our ancestral heritage of Cherokee and Irish, was so touching for our parents. As you know, my mother has since passed away since our wedding and just knowing that we were able to include her as a significant part of who we are as a couple will be a lasting memory for all of the family. It was everything we wanted...sacred and reverent, yet funny and deeply touching.
Thank you again for taking time to really get to know us and designing what was most important in expressing this most sacred time....standing before God and our family and friends while we make a sacred commitment to each other and the world. There was not a dry eye in the room. It was our hope that those in attendance would not only be touched by sharing in our joy, but they might also feel a renewed sense of commitment to their families. I know this happened because so many people have told us how it touched them to be part of our special moment.
Again, Joe and I are so grateful for your time and sensitivity to what we hoped for. I don't want to sound biased, but I truly feel like our wedding was the BEST wedding ever!
We wish you and your family many blessings and much love for the work you do.

We are so glad we found Jennifer to do our wedding. The owners of the house we got married at gave us a minister’s name to marry us. We meet with him and he didn't agree with our lifestyle (that we were already living together before we were married). So we were back at square one. Then the owner called me and said she saw Jennifer’s name, so I called. We hit it off just from the first phone call and I knew she was meant to marry us. We finally meet her in person and she made us feel so comfortable.
She asked multiple questions about us to get to know us. We wanted a simple ceremony. I also loved that she gave us a bunch of different verses we could choose from and we could have different ones for each other. When she finally sent us the whole ceremony, we loved it and it was perfect. If you are looking for someone who will make your ceremony just to you, Jennifer is the one.
– Lyndsi and Devin,
Thanks again for not only officiating our wedding, but for getting to know us as people and not just paying customers. We were both able to rely on your strength, knowledge, and expertise in uniting lives during the most nerve racking moments in our lives. The whole ceremony was absolutely magical.
Take care and I wish you the most success and happiness for years to come.

When Mark and I first met you for our initial consultation we both knew you would be a perfect fit for us. You were very personable, open, honest, and professional. We sensed a true connection with you. We also felt you truly cared about the intricate details of our relationship so you could design a customized ceremony that would fit our personalities. You took, as much time as was needed to be sure we were satisfied with your ideas. You were always punctual when returning calls, and followed through with what you said you were going to do. You had our wedding timeline down and paced it extremely well. You gave us plenty of time for any feedback; therefore we never felt rushed or overwhelmed.
We felt as if you had become a friend over the previous months leading up to our wedding day. You are extremely organized with unique and original ideas to personalize anyone’s wedding. You designed the most perfect wedding ceremony that fit our laid back, humorous lifestyle. You embraced and even added to our personalized suggestions for our ceremony. You thought my idea of playing the “Mission Impossible” theme was fun, as well as the lollipop ring. You can be serious when the time calls for it and you can also be humorous when the situation is right. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how they loved our non-traditional wedding ceremony. They absolutely thought you did an excellent job!
We would recommend your services to anyone. You did a beautiful job

When I contacted Jennifer Rogers the first time, I immediatley felt a connection with her. She was very warm, caring and receptive. She wanted to create a unique ceremony that would be memorable. I loved her ideas, especially the way she incorporated Yusuf's daughters into the ceremony. She created something for us that we will cherish forever.
Thank you for making our wedding so magical.

When an event comes in your life that is more precious than anything else, it is so important to have everything perfect! Our wedding was made special, intimate, meaningful, loving and memorable because we were lucky enough to have Jennifer Rogers act as our Officiant! From the moment we met her, my husband and I knew that we had met someone so special that would bring out the true beauty of our relationship into words in front of our family, friends and God! She was able to not only join my husband and I in holy matrimony, but she incorporated our children into the blessed event! If you are looking for someone that can create an occasion fit for a queen, look no farther than Jennifer! We were lucky enough to be her clients and now lovingly her friends!

We were so happy with our ceremony and all the special touches you added to it. It really embodied what we wanted to convey on our special day. Many of our guests came to us after the ceremony to say what a beautiful, meaningful, and fun ceremony it was. We just want to thank you so much for leaving Kevin and I, and our guests, with such beautiful memories of our wedding day. Three months later we still have people telling us how beautiful the ceremony was and what a great time they had.
We love our "blessing stones" and the bottled sand from the sand ceremony you performed for us...just a couple of the many memorable special touches you gave to our wedding. Thanks so much, Jennifer!!
Cheryl and Kevin Blackburn,
Our heartfelt thanks to you for writing and performing our beautiful Commitment Ceremony. It was absolutely perfect. I think everyone there must have gone home feeling very good about life, love and new beginnings. It's a wonderful memory that we will always cherish.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We could not have asked for a better, more meaningful wedding ceremony! It is not only a day we will never forget, but neither will all our friends and family! So glad you could be a part of our day!

We can't begin to share with you how grateful we are for your skills as an author and artist of words and emotions. You created a wedding ceremony for us that captured us with your words -- you transformed and articulated our love beautifully and we remain in awe. (We printed the ceremony and put it in our wedding album!) It is not often that anyone sees a minister so inspired as to be moved by her own product! We feel a special connection as it was our honor to give you the wedding you've been waiting to compose, while you gave us the possibility (and reality!) of the fairytale we sought!

And from our guests...
"I can't stop telling everyone all about your special day. Every last detail was perfection."
"I've never been to a more elegant, romantic, spiritual or real celebration of love ever."
"...One of the top weddings I've ever been to ..."

I can honestly say that when we started planning our wedding, Alex and I thought our ceremony would just be a five minute exchange of our vows and a quick kiss. Since neither of us are religious or very emotional, we didn’t know if it could be anything more than that. However, the ceremony you created for us fit us beautifully and all of our guests walked away feeling like that by being there that day they were able to witness our love. My hope was that everyone would leave that night confident that Alex and I were meant for each other and had each found our soul mate. I am confident that everyone did just that. Thank you for an extraordinary experience!

Thanks so much for doing us the honor of marrying us. The ceremony was beautiful. Thanks for being patient and dealing with all of the craziness. We are so very grateful for the work you did.
