Wedding Officiant in 89451

Creating a ceremony that reflects you as a couple is a special way to capture your personality as individuals and as a couple. The small nuances that make your ceremony uniquely yours are the moments you will cherish the most. Helping to create those moments is what I do best!

I welcome same-sex couples and celebrate and honor LGBTQ weddings with the same love and caring. Love is love!

Getting to know you is important, so we will spend some time in person or by phone talking about your vision for your ceremony. Not sure what that is? I will help you discover it.

We work together to customize a ceremony to reflect you. If you wish, I will talk with 3-5 of your select family and friends to round out my perspective and knowledge of you as a couple.

Whether you are eloping to Tahoe for simple beach-side ceremony or hosting a grand celebration with all of your family and friends, there is an option for you. In addition to creating your ceremony, I attend your rehearsal (whenever possible) and then return to conduct your wedding ceremony.

Getting married in Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, Truckee, Tahoe City, Carnelian Bay, South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Vista, Zephyr Cove, Reno, Carson City, Sparks or the surrounding areas? This is my home base, but I will travel outside these areas, when available.

Prior to choosing me as your officiant, I invite you to call, email or text to arrange a time to meet in person or by phone to ensure I am the person for you. This day is important and I feel it is important for you to feel comfortable with the person who officiates your marriage for you.

Look for me on Facebook and Instagram for recent photos.

Jackie was the very first officiant I looked at when searching for one. When we met her for the first meeting to decide if we wanted her to marry us we knew almost instantly upon meeting her. We wanted a ceremony based on love as opposed to religion and she was easily able to give us exactly what we wanted. She was so sweet and kept us comfortable and in the loop with what she was doing throughout the entire process. Jackie is amazing at what she does and is all around an amazing human being. She made our ceremony very personalized and silly and we absolutely loved it! I will be recommending Jackie to everyone I know getting ready to get married.

Ana, thank you so much. It was fun dreaming up your wedding ceremony details with you! I love that you wanted to include some humor and I heard your friends and family chuckle a bit during the ceremony. It makes my heart happy to know that you had a ceremony that fit you both. I know you are going to have a fun marriage -- laughter together is the best!

Jackie was such a pleasure to work with! From our initial meeting with her, to fine-tuning our ceremony, she was responsive, original, and flexible; our ceremony really felt like it was all about us which is just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant in the Lake Tahoe area!

Jackie made our day so wonderful. I do not think that our wedding would have been so special if she had not been there. Jackie was accommodating to our religious needs and was an absolute delight to work with. Jackie also put up with our willful flower girl/dog. My husband and I feel so lucky to have been able to book Jackie for our wedding. I highly recommend booking Jackie as your wedding officiant!

Jackie was absolutely amazing! She really outdid herself. Jackie took the time to get to know my husband and I and wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. She is such a genuine person and made us feel like we've known her forever. If you are looking for an officiant, look no further. Thank you so much Jackie, you are amazing!!!

Casey, thank you for this great review. I loved your ceremony and I still think my favorite moment was when Gunner barked right as you kissed! You two were elegant and fun and so focused on the right things! Thank you for including me in your wedding day.

We had a quick last minute elopement. Jackie was easy to communicate and really sweet and personable! The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for, short and sweet and in the mist of the beauty of Lake Tahoe.
Jackie Phillips, Officiant responded with the following comments:
Julianna, your spontaneity was so fun! The fun elements of your ceremony were a treat for me. Congratulations to both of you!

Jackie was a complete pleasure to work with right from the beginning. Our wedding was a destination wedding which we planned from out of state so we had to do all of the coordination over the phone or through e-mails. Jackie made the entire process not only easy and efficient, but also very personalized. Her experience and knowledge of the Lake Tahoe area was invaluable and critical for helping us chose the beautiful location and wonderful photographers, bakers, and florists. She was extremely flexible and helped us with the final touches - even bringing and arranging a table with elegant white table-clothes for our unity ceremony. The result was a perfect wedding that was exactly what we wanted. You can tell that Jackie is full of passion for officiating weddings; she loves what she does and that reflects in the beauty of the ceremony. We could not have asked for a better interaction. She made our day the best possible. We recommend her wholeheartedly.

Jackie was an English major, so if you care about having an officiant who can use the right words to capture the sentiment that best reflect you, she is your person. We eloped, and had about a week and a half to plan and find an officiant. Jackie talked to us for over an hour on the phone to get to know us, then wrote a beautiful and personalized ceremony that captured our story so well. She is awesome!

We are *so* grateful to have found Jackie Phillips to officiate our last-minute, surprise wedding ceremony (held in our backyard, in front of just our kids and my mom). Her insights and guidance elevated our simple little plan to a much higher level than we originally thought we'd do, which made the day all the more special and memorable! Jackie's professionalism was only outdone by her warmth and charm. She took the time to get to know us (in a very short period of time) and came up with a ceremony that nailed our quirkiness and personalities, and included our family in on the fun. Her guidance and timing were spot-on, and her follow-up impeccable: from checklists for obtaining copies of the marriage certificate, to all the steps required for name changes -- she even took photos after the ceremony and emailed them to us. We couldn't have picked a better officiant, and can't thank her enough for bringing so much to our special day. If you're on the fence about hiring Jackie Phillips to officiate your wedding, do yourself a favor -- JUST DO IT!!
Jackie Phillips, Officiant responded with the following comments:
Thank you, Cathy! I love that love = laughter and fun for you, Roy and your family. Right away, you opened your heart and shared that with me. I loved your energy and your great family. This review is wonderful--and so are my memories. Thank you so much!

She was more then amazing! We talked with her prior to the wedding so she could get to know who we were as individuals and as a couple. All of her writing was so beautiful and personal, it really shows she loves doing what she does! She welcomed our families (dogs too) with open arms. She waited for myself (the bride) who runs a little late, with no problem. And put up with our handful of a best man that enjoyed giving her a hard time :) ! She made everything fall into place and answered all our questions. Our day wouldn't of been as special without her

If you want an amazing ceremony and heart felt personal vows for your wedding then Jackie Philips is the only officiant for you! Jackie was our gift to having a perfect wedding. She not only wrote the full ceremony but also suggested personal touches that we would have never had thought of our selves. We still have people stopping us to share how our ceremony was unforgettable, perfectly unique, and customized to fit the both of us. Jackie wrote vows that helped our love for each other be expressed in such a passionate and meaning full way that we ourselves cried 3 times just reading over them before the ceremony. Jackie is very personable, easy to work with and communicate with. Jackie also has great professionalism. She was always on time and dressed respectful business attire. Our marriage license was sent to the records office the very next business day with a tracking link. She also was a big help with resources for changing our names. Our wedding was wonderful and amazing thanks to Jackie. Her creativity and ability to capture emotion and express them in actions or words will make your wedding memorable to all! Our day was unforgettable and our friendship we gained with Jackie is priceless.
Jackie Phillips, Officiant responded with the following comments:
Barbara, thanks for this incredible review! The love between you and Katelyn truly made the ceremony come together so beautifully. And, wanting to have your girls honored as a key part of your family and relationship was so touching. I'm so glad we could include them in meaningful ways. I love that we have met and I'm looking forward to seeing you soon. I loved the incredible suspense that built up with your entrance and the amazing love that we all felt between the two of you. (This photo is so special -- thank you!)

Jackie was amazing to work with. She made us feel comfortable right from the start, and managed to take our vision and turn it into reality. She was the perfect fit for our touches of spirituality that were not mainstream, and brought them to life in such a beautiful way. We had a small pseudo-elopement and between her and our photographer, they were the best two places we invested in our wedding. Well worth every penny. Not only was our ceremony everything and more, she was always super helpful when we had questions about our marriage license, and the rest of the pulling things together process. Plus! She has a beautiful smile and is easy to laugh with and enjoy being around. We would highly recommend her to everyone!

Jessica, thank you for this awesome review! I loved escaping to the woods with you and being able to capture your thoughts and vision for your ceremony. It felt so at one with the environment and your guests--and your son was so engaged in the ceremony. It was my pleasure to be there and be a part of it <3

Finding Jackie Phillips to officiate at our elopement was a tremendous gift. Although we began as strangers, her warmth and care soon won our trust... we felt like friends in record time. I can't imagine a better experience, or a kinder, more professional, calmer person to entrust with our marriage ceremony.
Jackie Phillips, Officiant responded with the following comments:
Thank you, Susan. I enjoyed our quick connection--and I really loved the thought and ideas you brought to your ceremony. It was so personal and special. I loved being a part of it!
