"Jodi delivered a service with zest, exuberance, and heartfelt warmth."


"In preparation for our wedding I happened upon Jodi on the internet because my intended wanted something on or near the water.  I don't know the cosmic forces at work but we were married last night aboard the Dandy dinner cruise ship on the Potomac.  Jodi delivered a service with zest, exuberance, and heartfelt warmth.   Rather than go on and on I just want to say we were so lucky to have found her and had her perform our ceremony it was amazing.  If you are looking for someone to officiate a ceremony for you there is no need to look any further."

"She created a fun, yet honorable atmosphere."

"Words fail me--but I'll try my best to express how you helped make my wedding day the most amazing wonderful, and simply beautiful day possible!  I've just kept saying how it couldn't have been any nicer.  The moment I came across your wedding website I just knew that I wanted to go with your wedding services.  I loved how you made us feel so at home even though we had just met you.  I loved how you not only married us, but created a fun yet honorable atmosphere.I've told everyone that it was the most wonderful wedding I've been to, but then again I might be a little biased. You truly made our day special!"

Iris & Frank

"She was exceptionally friendly, professional, enthusiastic, and helpful."


"Jodi went above and beyond the call of duty as our wedding officiant. From taking the time to have a long chat with us on the phone after we first contacted her, to helping with our rehearsal, and finally doing a wonderful job with the ceremony itself, she was exceptionally friendly, professional, enthusiastic, and helpful. All of our family and friends commented on what a great job she did. We highly recommend her!"

"She offered priceless service that allowed for everything to go smoothly".

“I contacted Waterfront Wedding Services under unusual circumstances. My friends asked me to officiate their wedding, but the online credentials I obtained were not adequate in Virginia. All I needed was someone to observe the nuptials and sign the paperwork to make it legal. What I received was so much more! Jodi was a constant source of advice and support as I prepared—right up until the actual moment the ceremony started. She showed up to help me with last minute preparations, helped me do a sound-check from the alter, and lent me her decorative book for use during the ceremony (She even cut up the script I designed by hand and pasted it in the book prior to the day so I could avoid using the three-ring binder I brought!!!).

Even though she did not officiate the actual wedding, she offered priceless service that allowed everything to go smoothly. I would recommend her to ANY couple who is looking for ANY kind of ceremony.

Thank you so much!”

Veronica & Ron

"You are a very special person and Ron and I are deeply thankful for you having been with us on our wedding day.We received the wedding pictures yesterday and I must say that these are some on the most beautiful weddings pictures I have ever seen in my life!  You were able to capture our emotions in our faces and gestures.  The pictures are of incredibly good quality and attention to detail.  I can't thank you enough for your dedication and commitment both as a celebrant and photographer!  Thank you also for the incredibly romantic and amazing pictures."

Patti & George

"She radiates warmth, joy, and a passion for uniting couples in matrimony."

"Waterfront Wedding Services was recommended to use by our friends who were married two years ago. I contacted Waterfront Wedding Services via email and received an immediate response from Jodi including suggestions for different types of ceremonies. We met Jodi in person and were drawn in by her personality. She radiates warmth, joy, and a passion for uniting couples in matrimony. Jodi offers guidance and suggestions but definitely gives you the reins to create your perfect ceremony. She was prompt, extremely well-prepared and fantastic to work with! We highly recommend Jodi; she is a true gem!"
