Jill was phenomenal! She was a dream to work with and made our ceremony something more special than it was going to be. After our first meeting with Jill, it felt as though we knew her for years leading up to our big day. She took the time to understand our story and explain it in the best possible way. People are STILL TALKING about how amazing she was during our ceremony and how much they enjoyed it!
Thank you, Jill, for making our night so memorable!
Jill captured the essence of us, as well as capturing the hearts of all of our guests!
Her flexibility, sense of humor, and wise guidance were wonderful tools as she created our week-designed and joyous ceremony.
Working with Jill was a wonderful experience!
We absolutely loved working with Jill. From the moment we sat down for our first meeting with her, we felt relaxed, comfortable, and totally put at ease regarding the whole process. Jill took the time to get to know us well and worked with us to create a ceremony that truly reflected us individually and as a couple. Jill is a warm, creative, and all-around lovely person/officiant. I would HIGHLY recommend working with her to custom-build a ceremony that feels right for you.
Jill deserves a million stars, not just five!
When we met with her, she made us feel at ease and we knew we had made the right decision. She was so easy to work with and quick to respond to questions or last minute edits. She wrote a unique ceremony that really captured us as a couple, it felt like she had known both of us for years! We got so many compliments on how great the ceremony was! We could not have been any happier with our ceremony!
Jill is a wonderful person who made our ceremony unique & special!
We highly recommend Jill Magerman as an officiant for your wedding! Jill beautifully blended our family’s traditions (we’re interfaith) in an effortless way. Her process was simple and kept us relaxed throughout. She made sure this was one thing we did NOT have to worry about. On a personal note, Jill is a lovely, warm woman who made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Even though we had only spoken a few times, we had the feeling we’d known her for years. We could not recommend Jill highly enough!
Beautiful service that was tailor-made for us!
Jill was referred to us through a family member, and we feel lucky that we had the opportunity to have her officiate our wedding. She created a beautiful ceremony based initially on her own ideas, but gave us a lot of room to insert our own stories, thoughts, and rituals. The result was a ceremony that felt very personal for us, since it contained everything we wanted and nothing we didn’t. Many of our guests commented on how much they loved the personal touch, and they particularly enjoyed the wine box ceremony that Jill had suggested. We’re confident that her adaptability and creativity will help give others they ceremony they deserve.
Jill was absolutely amazing!
I searched far and wide for an officiant who was just down-to-earth and made us feel comfortable and Jill exceeds our expectations! I contacted a few companies before I happened upon Jill’s profile on Wedding Wire and the other companies made you feel like a number on an assembly line. Jill happened to live close to our house so we got to meet with her in person to introduce ourselves. We ended up spending several hours there discussing our backgrounds, families, pets, hobbies, etc. She’s a very warm and inviting person and I was so thrilled she was able to marry us on NYE (12/31/2017). Jill provided us with a questionnaire that both my husband and I had to complete separately so that she could build a ceremony script from our answers. I thought it was a lot of fun to answer questions in secret and wonder what the other one would say/how they would respond. Jill came up with a beautiful script that still makes me cry thinking about it. My husband and I are crazy cat people and she was able to incorporate our fur babies into the script which was a lot of fun. Jill kept our ceremony short, light hearted, sweet and touching which is exactly what we wanted. I think our family and friends really enjoyed it – a lot of them asked us if Jill was a close family friend because of how well she knew us! Jill is responsive, fun, and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her for any wedding and I hope to keep in touch with her!
Absolutely loved the ceremony that Jill prepared for us!
Working with her was so easy. Jill is very warm and welcoming and made us feel very comfortable from the beginning of the planning process right until the day of our event. At the initial meeting she gets to know the basics and then follows up with a detailed questionnaire that both the bride and groom fill out separately. She then takes this info and creates a ceremony that is actually a personal story of the two of you. We did not have to adjust much as what she wrote in the first draft was amazing. We could not have been happier with how it turned out & our guests loved it too!
Jill was the officiant for our wedding, and we could not have been happier. Coming from families that observe different religions, we were concerned about honoring both of our families and staying true to ourselves. Jill was thorough and had amazing recommendations for us. In the end she let us pick and choose (and write) what worked best for us. Our guests RAVED about our ceremony, and told us it was perfectly encompassing of us as a couple. We hope we can work with Jill again for more life events!!
My husband and I could not have asked for a better officiant on our special day!
We come from two different religious backgrounds and really wanted a ceremony that was non-denominational but captured certain traditions from both sides. She sent us a first draft about 3 weeks before our ceremony, we were both in tears (good tears), and barely needed to change a thing. Jill was always extremely responsive and honest. Our families and guests were so moved by the ceremony. We have been told multiple times that it was the best ceremony they’ve attended. Jill made it extremely personable and incorporated our families in the ceremony which was awesome. I can not say enough about Jill! She takes the time to listen to what you want and then delivers it beautifully. I would recommend Jill a million times over!
Jill was an absolute pleasure to work with!
She created such a beautiful and personal ceremony for us. We wanted something very personal and wanted our guests to walk away remembering what went on. We received so many compliments about the ceremony immediately after and the days following. She’s fantastic!
Gene and Nikki
Jill was tremendous in making our night very special!
She was able to blend symbolic representations from both of our religions into the service. For a Catholic guy and a Jewish girl it was perfect. She helped make our night intimate and memorable.
Jill is incredible!
From the minute our families met her we knew she was the perfect person to perform the ceremony. I was a little bit anxious about how the two traditions would be combined to make everyone feel comfortable, but Jill did it with a special warmth that is so inviting!!
Everyone is raving about how warm, personal, intimate, and funny the ceremony was. What a great way to start the celebration.
We are all thrilled and happy Jill was a part of it.
Jeff and Emily
My husband and I were looking for someone to help us create an interfaith wedding ceremony that also reflected our unique relationship and personalities. We were therefore very happy to find Jill Magerman! From the first time we contacted her until the day of our wedding, Jill was friendly, professional, and prepared. Her wealth of experience allows her to offer many suggestions for both traditional and more creative elements couples can choose to incorporate; but most of all, she is dedicated to making her couples happy! For us, our ceremony was the most meaningful and important aspect of our wedding day; and we really appreciated how patient and understanding Jill was throughout the whole process of crafting a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. She has a warm energy and a nice speaking voice, and did a great job officiating on the day. Our ceremony was everything we hoped it would be, and we are still receiving comments from our guests about how personal and sweet and very “us” it was.
Thanks for everything, Jill!
We had an incredible experience with Jill!
She worked with us to form a meaningful service based around our differing religious backgrounds. It was a lovely service, that our guests talked about (most times… guests talk about how boring the ceremony is… for us, they raved about how they loved the excitement/creativity associated with it!). Jill really honored what we wanted, and worked with us during a very challenging time for our family.
Was lovely, and would highly recommend!!!
Look no further!
Jill is amazing! From her consultative and custom approach, to her amazing communication and organizational skills YOU WILL NOT REGRET GOING WITH HER! We had a very unique wedding, and she did an excellent job incorporating all of the elements we wanted in a personalized and meaningful ceremony. Many guests even commented afterwards on how beautiful and uniquely “us” the ceremony was!
Thanks a million Jill!
Jill is wonderful!
Jill created a beautiful, warm, and personal ceremony for our wedding! My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and our families each have their own style. Jill was able to provide a framework that made all parties feel represented. She’s incredibly easy to work with and provides a ton of ideas for traditions to incorporate — from hand tying, to candle lighting, stomping the glass, etc. I cannot tell you how many guests approached me afterwards to say that it was the most personal and intimate wedding they had ever attended!! If you’re looking for a professional who feels like family, hire Jill!

Jill put together a lovely service for me and my wife. We were an interfaith wedding and she made my catholic wife’s side of the family feel very comfortable with a more Jewish centric wedding. I highly recommend Jill for your weddings.
Jill came recommended by our venue and from the start; we knew we made a great choice. By the end of the first call we were joking with each other like old friends. The planning process was easy and Jill was very accommodating even with a last minute meeting cancelation. The ceremony she wrote was heartfelt, personal and full of love. We could not be happier with the suggestions she made and how beautifully she incorporated our daughters. After the ceremony all of our guests raved about how it felt like she knew us our whole lives and how the day was full of love. We cannot thank Jill enough for her thoughtfulness in telling our love story and making our day incredibly special.
Very personable wedding officiant!
Jill was great! She was very warm and easy to work with. She was incredibly flexible in helping us design a ceremony that we were looking for. She was prompt in responding to all of our emails when it came to actually working on the ceremony script. My wife’s very catholic mother who was used to attending weddings in a church said that “it was the best ceremony she had every been to. Because it was personable.”
Jill was professional, reliable and accommodating. Would recommend 10/10.
Jill was so nice to work with and we absolutely loved our ceremony!
We come from different religions and she meshed them perfectly at our ceremony. We received so many compliments on how nice it was and it really reflected who we are as a couple. It was lighthearted and fun but also so meaningful. We will never forget it and really appreciate all of her hard work in getting to know us to make up the perfect ceremony for us!
Jill was a delight to work with!
Not only did we love what she wrote for us, and create a wonderful day, our guests said it was one of the most moving and meaningful ceremonies they’ve attended.
My husband and I had seen Jill perform a sample handfasting ceremony at an expo we went to at our venue about 6 months before our wedding. We talked to her right after her demonstration, and contacted her shortly after. Her email responses were very quick and professional, and she answered all questions we had, not only regarding the process, but also cleared up any payment questions we had as well. Shortly after establishing a connection via email, we set up a Skype session which was very helpful in getting to know each other face to face, even though we lived too far to make it to her in person during the week. She is very flexible as far as the meetings go. We met with her via Skype once, and then once she felt like she had a good feel for us as a couple, she sent us a questionnaire that my then fiance and I both had to answer separately. The package we chose was the completely customized ceremony. I believe that here is really where you are going to get your money’s worth with Jill, because she is one of the most creative people we have ever met. Jill has the capability to perform a traditional ceremony of pretty much any denomination, but she also has the amazing ability to take bits and pieces from different traditions and combine them all into one cohesive and eclectically beautiful ceremony. She used our questionnaire answers as reference for the ceremony script that she created from scratch, which was 100% tailored to us and our own personal love story. She sent us a draft to read and approve, and we were even able to make our notes, take anything out that we didn’t like, or add any of our own personal ideas in. It was completely customizable and she was open to all of our ideas. We did meet with her in person once before our wedding which was nice. We had so many compliments on our ceremony and there was not one dry eye in the house! It was emotionally moving and so beautiful, she is just the best to work with!
Jill is not only an awesome person but an amazing officiant. Everything, from the time we met her to the ceremony itself was warm and personal and just absolutely perfect. She went out of her way to cater to all of our requests(and all of our crazy fun ideas). The ceremony was uniquely ours and Jill did everything in her power to make it that way. Words cannot express the amount of gratitude we have for her! All of our family and friends raved about her and the ceremony. I don’t usually write reviews but I think that anyone looking for an officiant to write and deliver the most perfect ceremony should hire Jill! (Reasonably priced and worth every penny!!!)
Jill made our ceremony even more perfect than we could have dreamed of!
It was so personalized and was made just for us. Every word she spoke so beautifully and there was not a dry eye in the room! She made us all laugh, smile, cry, and enjoy our amazingly customized ceremony. I would recommend her a million times over! She was a huge help every step of the way!
Thanks again so much, Jill!
Jill was wonderful!
She made our ceremony touching, funny, full of love, and uniquely personal to us. Immediately after the ceremony, I received so many comments from guests saying that ours was the best wedding ceremony that they had ever attended (ever!). It was so meaningful to us and our family and friends. The process of filling out the questionnaire was fun, and Jill suggested different aspects that we wouldn’t have thought of – our guests and my husband and I loved the ring warming ceremony! I recommend Jill 100% and hope that she is still performing ceremonies when my children are ready to be married.
From start to finish, Jill was incredible!
My wife and I met with her in her home with our families and she welcomed us immediately. It only took one meeting for her to get to know us well enough to craft a ceremony that made everyone in the room, including us, feel comfortable. We had an interfaith wedding and the ceremony was crafted to blend the two traditions – and the guests loved it. We can’t thank Jill enough for beginning our wedding day perfectly.
Jill officiated my wedding and was absolutely amazing!
She took the time to get to know us and made our ceremony so personal and special. Several guests commented that it was the best wedding ceremony that they had witnessed. I would highly recommend Jill for anyone’s wedding needs!
Cory and Amanda
We felt a connection with Jill as soon as we met her!
She is very fun and goes along with what you want on your ceremony. She isn’t creative and has a lot of great ideas for your ceremony even if you’re not sure what you want to do.
Dennis and Marney
Jill was truly a joy to work with!
I happened to meet her at a bridal show, where I had no intention of finding an officiant. Being my wedding was interfaith, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do! Once she said she would write “my love story,” that was it. She was attentive, creative, thoughtful, and so personable. To this day, people still tell me that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. Jill included everything we wanted and gave us great ideas. I would highly, highly recommend Jill.
Joe and Patricia
Our ceremony was everything we wanted it to be and more!
My advice to other couples is to talk to Jill. She is so experienced and has wonderful ideas but was always open to listening to our ideas. You get so wrapped up in the wedding planning it is so easy to forget about what is really the purpose of the day, the ceremony! Jill kept us on point and was willing to incorporate our ideas to make our ceremony the best it could be. So many of our guests loved our ceremony and have had so many wonderful compliments. We loved every minute of our ceremony and have Jill to thank for making it all we wanted it to be.
