Jayne did a fantastic job! She was very proactive, communicative, and professional. She helped make sure everything went smoothly and made our day extra special. We really appreciate how thoughtful and thorough she was throughout the process.
Jayne was absolutely wonderful to work with. She bills her approach as starting with a blank sheet and working towards what the couple wants. While entirely true, that leaves out how much experience she brings to the table to make those ideas come through and shine on the big day. At every step of the process she had insightful pointers, helpful next steps, and a certainty and assurance that was welcome during the stress and unknown of planning. She was easy to communicate with, always approachable, and quick to respond to questions and concerns. On the big day she had everything put together for us, including a copy to take home and was able to keep us calm and help make our special day absolutely perfect. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.
Jayne was our amazing officiant for our wedding! She was very knowledgeable and thoughtful of our opinions and ideas throughout the wedding planning process for the ceremony. When the hubby and I mentioned that we were streaming for out of town friends and family, she was very excited and asked what places they were from so that she could mention them and had us all wave at the cameras. I know we had a hiccup with the close up mic as I was being given away during the ceremony but thankfully with Jayne’s quick thinking and adaptability, she decided to speak loudly for our small group of guests as well as for the attached mics to the cameras. We spoke as loudly and things got better from there. We had planned for a video game/geek wedding and went totally non-traditional and Jayne was incredibly interested in the alternative unity ceremony we brought up to reference my favorite childhood game, Kingdom Hearts. You can tell how incredibly passionate she is with her job and it makes it even better that she had quite the calming presence. Everything went better than expected and we couldn’t be more thankful to have her marry us. Thank you Jayne!! 💜
Jayne performed a dedication service for our 3 sons. We decided to utilize Jayne for our service in September 2021. However, we had to cancel due to my contracting COVID a couple days before the service. Jayne was so understanding. She waited patiently while we rescheduled and helped us write the perfect service for our family. We finally had the service the following May. Jayne provided printed programs, was timely and still sat and waited for our guests to arrive, delivered a beautiful service, signed the boys bibles and offered to stay as long as we needed to ensure our photographer got all the shots we needed. I would recommend her to anyone and would use her again in a heartbeat.
We got married May 21,2022 and we had Jayne. She was simply amazing. Everyone at our wedding said she did a great job and she really did. Super friendly and nice. We were so nervous the first couple of minutes standing up there but she made it so calm and easy for us. I would recommend her to anyone and if i could give her 1000 stars i would. Thank you for celebrating with us on our special day 💜
My husband and I got married by John 10 years ago, and when we decided to return to Treasure Island to renew our vows, we thought of A Perfect Witness. Unfortunately, John has passed. Jayne, however, was pleased to continue what John started and added her own touch to our renewal ceremony. She wrote a script for us that was in keeping with John’s spirit but also updated to allow for the 10 years we have spent married to each other. Our renewal was touching (I think all five of our guests wept!) and loving and captured exactly the feeling my husband and I were hoping for. Jayne recommended a wonderful photographer who would spent an hour with us to take photos so we didn’t have to rely on our friends to do so. We wanted something simple and quick, and Jayne provided that and more: she added warmth, kindness and laughter to our special day. We will forever be grateful to John, Jayne and A Perfect Witness for playing such important roles in our wedding and vow renewal ceremonies.

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!
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!
-Joe and Pamela
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!
