Janie officiated our wedding in March, 2015. We worked with her the entire year before seeking guidance, referrals, etc. Planning our wedding had the additional challenge of being a "destination" event. We live in Seattle so Janie was an invaluable resource and our link to the... Read More greater Lafayette area. We chose Janie because she has been in the business for many years, in a variety of roles. She is very professional, at the same time, very real and personable. Her follow-through and reliability was excellent. I also love that she is LGBTQ friendly and open to couples of all faiths. There are a lot of "wannabe's" in this business, I certainly would not trust just anyone with our special day. I am extremely selective and you should be also--this is your day, choose all your vendors wisely. There are no "do-overs" of your wedding! Congratulations to all the future brides and grooms out there, it's so worth it! #loveisallthatmatters
