We Welcome Our International Friends
A Message From John
Founder John H. Melchinger – 1948 – 2015
I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear… enough rain to appreciate the sun even more… enough happiness to keep your spirit alive… enough pain so that even the smallest joys in life may appear bigger… enough gain to satisfy your wanting… enough loss to appreciate all you possess… enough hellos to get you through the final goodbye… I wish you enough… no more, no less.

Within your theme you make many choices: attire, hair, make-up, flowers. Superbly coiffed and decked out to the nines, the bride and wedding party must be perfect. Meaning and feeling must live in your ceremony.

We had our wedding at the Florida Aquarium, and Jayne was listed as one of their preferred vendors. When my, now husband, and I spoke with Jayne for the first time to discuss our wedding, we knew we had found our officiant. She was so wonderful, answered all of our questions, and made the process so easy. On the day of, she was so warm, and comforting, and helped make our ceremony amazing! Her words were beautiful, so many of our guests cried (as did we lol) and she also helped make everyone laugh as well. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to lead our ceremony! I’d highly recommend her to anyone, she will help make your special day even more special!!

Our wedding was celebrated and blessed by Ms Jayne. I was referred to her. I called her, she was very nice and calm and asked me a few questions. She explained everything about different prices and service. She sent me the link to sign up to make a deposit just to reserve the date and time. She kept in touch with me. My husband and I had an appointment with her on the phone; she explained everything every detail to us on what we need to do on that day. She gave us hints. She was there on time.
Every single guest talks about how perfect the ceremony was by Ms Jayne. The name (A Perfect Witness ) is a perfect name to describe the company. We recommend Ms Jayne from A Perfect Witness to any one who is getting married who wants a precise and perfect ceremony.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Paul and I wanted to thank you for officiating our wedding and help make it such a special day. As we all know too well, it is difficult planning anything during COVID, let alone a surprise wedding ceremony. Your willingness to just “blend in” was much appreciated. Not one person figured out why you were there. Most of them thought you were the event boss…LOL! Paul and I have pulled off a few surprises in our past but mostly just surprising Sarah, Todd and Rebecca. Pulling off this Yapa went above and beyond. Not sure we will ever top this one.
By the time I met Jayne, I felt like we were old friends! Jayne took the time to have several phone conversations with me and answer all my questions. Jayne had a beautiful purple bouquet waiting for me and even tracked down purple rose petals to scatter on the beach (by special request)! With only two weeks notice, we had a beautiful wedding with Jayne’s help. My husband and I are so happy we trusted A Perfect Witness with our wedding. It was exactly what we wanted!
