People have not stopped raving about our ceremony and Reverend! Jill is the best! Hands down! Such an easy process and she is so helpful and fun to work with! We ended up last minute meeting in a panera close by later at night and stayed and closed down the restaurant just talking! The way she personalized our ceremony made us feel like the only 2 In the world. You would think she knew us our whole lives how she spoke with such confidence and caught on to who were are as individuals and a couple. Her way with words and tone of voice is infectious. So positive and upbeat yet still serious and with emotion. She took our notes carefully into consideration and included some very important readings and motions. She just showed such happiness for us as if she was one of the family. She suggested a wine unity ceremony and it was awesome!! So unique and what a cool take on tradition. After the ceremony to be able to hug her and talk about meeting up as friends now outside the wedding stuff was just great! Hands down the best! We thank you Jill with such a deep gratitude that words can’t describe! <3 Anthony and Gena

About

Congratulations and thank you for considering me as a potential officiant. 

We are going to have fun together!

I am a Minister located in Monmouth County, New Jersey, and I have been performing ceremonies for about 15 years. I perform single faith, interfaith and no-faith ceremonies. Your ceremony should reflect your relationship and your commitment to each other, as well as your beliefs. (Or lack thereof!)

I believe the planning should offer as much excitement as the wedding! Your officiant should be fun, flexible and supportive. I work with my couples to create inspirational, spiritual and personalized ceremonies that reflect both their relationship and commitment to each other. I will listen to your ideas, assist you with suggestions, and help you navigate the planning process. I support my couples in creating a day that is truly personal, spiritual, and beautiful.

You should be sure that your officiant has the desire, energy, and personality to make your ceremony all you have hoped for and more.

There are no rules for what has to be included, there are no standards to apply. Together we can create a ceremony that reflects you, your relationship and the commitment you are making toward each other. I specialize in unique venues and park/beach weddings. All situations are accepted and respected. Reasonable fees. Short Notice OK. Elopement option available.

You pick the venue you know your colors but then there is the MOST important person to choose ... who is going to marry you and make it official ?!? That’s when we met Rev.Jill.. her warmth and humor and her modern approach made us fall in love with her on our first Skype call. We knew she was the only person who could give us the ceremony we wanted ! By the end of the call we felt like we had just hung up with a friend we had known for years. Rev. Jill took the time to learn our story and to understand what it was we were looking for in a ceremony. Throughout our wedding planning process she was always available to answer any questions or just to laugh , dream, and be excited right along with us! We were married June 9, 2018 at The Bradford Estate. Rev. Jill delivered the most beautiful romantic ceremony. She involved our parents , bridal party , and two year old daughter and created a beautiful wine unity. It was flawless! She was our rock and our light of the day. Our guest can not stop raving about how amazing she is and we couldn’t agree more. She was our first official text as husband and wife that we sent out the next morning because she’s just that awesome and we already missed her! If you are getting married Rev. Jill is the person you want ! One phone call and you will see why! From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU ! Xoxoxoxo Mr and Mrs Hoffman!

BOOK REV. JILL AS YOUR OFFICIANT! Let me explain.... The moment that my husband and I met Jill, we immediately felt at east and comfortable. She asked us about our story, how we met, etc. She incorporates these personalized details into the ceremony. We loved her personality upon meeting her: she is dynamic, warm, and funny. Leading up to the day, she was always great at responding to e-mails. We wanted to incorporate some Catholic & Jewish traditions into the ceremony, which she was happy to include. She was super flexible with everything we asked and wrote up an amazing ceremony draft. The draft was sent to us a month before the wedding, so we had plenty of time to look it over. Honestly, there were no changes that had to be made, because the draft itself was so great! On days leading up until the wedding, Jill checked in with us to see how we were doing. On the actual wedding day, she made it a point to introduce herself to our friends and family. She was a calming force throughout and made us feel at ease. The actual ceremony was SO AMAZING. We got A TON of compliments on the ceremony and Jill. We had family members saying they want to get married again just to have her officiate. Out of every detail of our wedding, we definitely got the most compliments on the ceremony. Jill is worth every single penny, and if you want to start your marriage off in a meaningful way, please book her.

My husband and I were looking for an officiant for our wedding at the Jersey Shore. We had many recommendations but when we came across Rev Jill, we needed to look no further! The first time we met Rev Jill it was as if we knew her forever. She is so personable, funny, kind and truly caring about making your wedding day perfect. She listened to our many suggestions, got to know us as a couple and tied all of that into our fantastic ceremony. Many of our guests asked how we knew Rev Jill beforehand because of how she delivered such a personal ceremony as if she knew us forever. When we told our guests we only met her last year and hired her just for our wedding, they could not believe it. The amount of complaints we received on Rev Jill's behalf are endless. This is one of the most important days of our life and she made it an absolute dream for us! There is no way we could thank her enough for everything!!

I take the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, and the families they leave at home, very seriously. Many couples want to have a quick civil ceremony before one of them gets "shipped out" with plans for a formal wedding in the future. I will perform a free "elopement" ceremony for military couples clients prior to deployment or while home on leave. All you need is a marriage license and two witnesses.
