Cantor Jinny did a wonderful job as officiant of our recent wedding. She was very flexible and accommodating as we put together our ceremony and did not have an issue with us requesting an atypical format and different wording in certain areas. She was always responsive and organized when scheduling our meetings and we enjoyed her warm demeanor and sense of humor. She helped us out with little things such as bringing kippot to the ceremony and even gave us a kiddish cup as a gift when we told her we didn't have one. As an interfaith couple she made us feel very welcomed and comfortable. Also her beautiful singing voice added a very nice element to the ceremony. We would highly recommend her as a wedding officiant.
Apparently we were supposed to nail down an officiant many, many months before our wedding. When we came to 4-ish months before without one, it took a while to find someone who would perform our non-religious wedding with some aspects of Jewish culture. The rabbis wanted to do a Jewish wedding or required premarital counseling, the non-Jewish ones either didn't know the traditions well or, in one case, had never even been to a Jewish wedding. As soon as my husband found Jinny, we knew she was the right one for the job. She gave us a ton of ceremony options but didn't push anything on us. The only thing I would have done differently was have her at the rehearsal, since we weren't ready for a few technical aspects. But somehow that made the ceremony even better and set exactly the right lighthearted tone we wanted for the wedding. Basically, we couldn't have found a better officiant.
