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!
A Perfect Witness was perfect! Jayne was a pleasure. We enjoyed getting to know her and having her be apart of our special day. She met with us 2 weeks before the date and made us feel very comfortable. She walked thru the steps and provided us with some readings and prayers to review to help us select the perfect readings that fit us and our wedding ceremony. On our special day, she took the time to speak with both of us individually and make that part of our ceremony. I loved every moment of our wedding. Thank you Jayne and A Perfect Witness for such a perfect day!
Jayne was absolutely the perfect witness!! I could not be happier with our choice to go with Jayne and “A Perfect Witness” for our special day. Jayne gave plenty of personal attention before the ceremony to ensure that it was exactly what we wanted and unique to our style. She must have spent several hours over the phone with me answering all of my questions, as well as a few with my (now) husband; and she even offered to help him write his vows if he was having trouble!! Jayne did actually help to create custom vows out of the ones we wrote as well. Not only did she craft a gorgeous ceremony that had EVERYONE in tears, but it was inclusive of every important detail and person in our lives–our mothers, my son, and even my grandmother who was not able to attend our wedding.
I cannot express how many people came up to tell me how about beautiful, moving, and perfect our ceremony was that day. We did a ribbon ceremony, and no one had seen it before; but everyone loved it!! This was beyond all my expectations, as I have never seen an officiant do more than just iterate the typical vows and take all of 5 minutes to marry other couples. Our ceremony was about 20 minutes and was truly a representation of who we are as a couple and a family… After all of that, she left a gorgeous physical copy of our entire ceremony so that we will remember it forever.
Additionally, she mailed our marriage certificate without fail, and the official copy was waiting for us when we arrived home from our honeymoon. Thank you Jayne for everything!! We are so grateful and appreciative of everything!!
A Wonderful Night To Remember, Beautiful Ceremony Held by Jayne
A Perfect Witness was on the preferred vendor list provided by the Florida Aquarium. Although the price was a little higher than some other vendors, trust me when I say you definitely get what you pay for! It was worth every penny to have Jayne create such a beautiful, personalized ceremony and experience for us. My family and friends said everything ran so smoothly, flowed well, and they could tell she really captured “us.” Jayne is very patient and kind and met with us to personally create our vision for our day and she added some very special touches to our ceremony. A week before the wedding we met with her and I had not selected any readings for our ceremony. We had a non-religious ceremony and she provided me a 25 page document to assist in me finding readings that really meant something to my husband and I as a couple, instead of generic readings we might not relate to. Jayne also provided us a copy of the ceremony the day of our wedding as well as a paper marriage certificate (for display). Jayne, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful ceremony and truly making it a night to remember. We highly recommend couples consider hiring A Perfect Witness!
I loved everything about working with her during the planning and all the way up to the ceremony. There was nothing left out and never missed a beat she was on top of everything and the wedding was amazing.
This is the place to go!!!! My wife and I had a ceremony performed by Robert, and it was absolutely PERFECT!!!! Bob truly went the extra mile and a half for us. He was professional, courteous, and the ceremony was just all around amazing! trust me, we looked everywhere, compared EVERY price, and there is absolutely nobody around that is going to give you a better deal and even if you pay the higher price, I highly doubt you will be any happier than you would be here. Thank you again SO MUCH! For everything!

P.S. If you want a tip, use the recommended photographer, he did a truly fantastic job as well. He spent a lot of time with us, and the pictures are breathtaking. You cannot put a price on a day like that, our memories are the best we could have ever asked for. And the keepsakes and photo’s are everything we’d hoped for.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!
A dream come true!
I don’t even know where to start. Jayne was fast in responding to every email. Her instructions were excellent. She was so personable and she made us feel as if we had known her forever. Our ceremony was PERFECT. I am absolutely confident she will be the best thing to happen to you too.
Beautiful ceremony! Felt like she captured who we are as a couple.
If you are lucky enough to book Bob Hoffman at A Perfect Witness you will be in great hands.
I was very particular about who I would use for an officiant, especially because it was an interfaith marriage.
When I found Bob Hoffman I could not have been more happy. He was so kind and so perfect. I can’t say enough good things about him. My soon to be husband got food poisoning the night of our rehearsal, he was not able to comprehend a lot about the ceremony because he was so sick. Bob made an every effort to make sure our wedding went smoothly, he explained everything to my fiancé the day of the wedding and was very patient about it. Bob is just great-you’ll be so happy you went with him!
Absolutely The best service you have written! It really was so unique and meaningful. I enjoyed being a part of it.
We will be giving you the highest review possible! We loved the ceremony and received many compliments on how you performed it. You made our day magical and we can not thank you enough for everything you did for us. Thank you again!

We want to say we are very happy with Conrad’s service, very natural with good spirit !!
One Word: Ahhhhmazing!
Our wedding ceremony was – honestly – the best experience I could have ever hoped! We couldn’t have asked for better circumstances: our family together, the weather, the beach location (Pass-A-Grille)…it was all so ideal it still feels surreal 2 weeks later. Our Officiant, Jayne, was phenomenal: from her very first email, to her pre-wedding call, to working in perfectly a poem we selected for a very recently lost loved one. I cant say enough wonderful things about her.
John was wonderful! He had the perfect amount of humor mixed with the perfect amount of seriousness. He created a beautiful ceremony that was exactly what we had wanted. He even gave us a very nice printout of our ceremony (including readings) and made us a pretty certificate of marriage.
An unforgettable experience!
We were married on a cruise in October of 2018. We had no idea who would be officiating our ceremony until a few days before the wedding. Jayne called us directly and walked us through the entire ceremony step by step. Even though we had not met Jayne officially, we felt an instant connection and knew she would be a wonderful officiant. Jayne took the time to put a personal touch on our ceremony and made the whole event very memorable. She was a wonderful addition to our wedding and we feel so blessed to have had her be a part of our special day.
Jayne and Linda were phenomenal! Since we did a cruise wedding, there isn’t a rehearsal the day before so Jayne had several calls with us to walk us through the day and made sure we understood the ins and outs of what was to happen. The day went smoothly and without a hitch- I think we even started a little early!
Jane was most obliging. She incorporated the humor we wanted yet kept the ceremony sacred. We felt she truly understood us as a couple and what we wanted. The entire service was better than I expected. She is a very down-to-earth, charming lady who understood her position and carried out her duties well. We were very pleased.
Jayne pulled together a beautiful ceremony on the beach for us with 2 DAYS NOTICE. She ensured our night was incredibly special with powerful readings and a near perfect location. Sometimes saying Thank You just doesn’t feel like enough. =)
Jayne was wonderful and very helpful!!
She was there for us when we decided to get married out of the blue and her words during the ceremony were beautiful! She worked with us and saved the day when it started raining. She was truly a blessing! The photographer was wonderful too despite rain and I was thankful that she was available for us at the last minute!
