BOOKING FOR 2024 & 2025!
Jenna Jakes provides officiant services in Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, Eastern Minnesota, and Northern Illinois.
A communications professional, Jenna is well-versed in public speaking and performance. A published author, on-air radio personality, communications professor, and stage performer, she brings nothing but the best to your event.
What sets Jenna apart from other officiants is her dedication to personalize your ceremony to you. Marriage isn't one size fits all, and your wedding vows shouldn't be either.
Personalized Planning Meeting
This is where we can get to know one another by talking about what you are looking for and knocking out a lot of general information about your ceremony. This meeting can be completed in person or via Zoom.
Whether you want traditional, religious, personalized, or a combination of any of these, your wedding vows and ceremony should be personalized to you. We work on this together, and I bring the final polished product to your ceremony.
Wedding rehearsals are important. They help solidify how the ceremony will go on your official day. Should you choose to have a rehearsal ceremony on the day or two before the wedding, I will be there to help get things just right.
Marriage License Filing
On your big day, the last thing you need to worry about is if you remembered to file the license. I handle the business end of the license, so you and your spouse can enjoy the celebration.
The Big Day
I'll arrive 1 to 1.5 hours early at the venue to finalize all of the finite details for my part of the ceremony. I'll check in with both spouses, the DJ, specialty speakers, etc. to ensure everything with the vows runs as smoothly as can be expected.
Officiant price requires a non-refundable retainer. This retainer guarantees your ceremony date/time on my calendar as well as my professional time spent designing your personalized officiant experience. Your ceremony is important, and so are my services. I look forward to working with you.
