If you are seeking a wedding officiant to make your day special, fun and memorable, then Reverend Joyce Hilbery is the wedding officiant for you!

Your day isn’t about me... it’s about you! I’m there to guide you through the ceremony, from choosing what is said to orchestrating the service, your bridesmaids and errant groomsmen. Whether you have just five or two hundred people, I’m there to give you a few moments of tranquility and reflection as you consider the vows you are making and the bond you are sealing.

 

I will individualize your non-denominational ceremony and same sex cermony, allowing you to choose vows, readings and personal messages, making your wedding service truly something to treasure.

 

Above all, I think weddings should be fun, punctuated with smiles and laughter...Love is Love...

Please contact me at joycehilbery@hotmail.com or (301) 676 2105.

We hired Joyce to perform our wedding in June 2018. She was wonderful to work with, from beginning to end. She personalized our ceremony and added humor. We loved the keepsake she created for us - a complete book of our ceremony, so special.

Joyce was delightful to work with, starting with our first phone conversation thru completion of the wedding ceremony. She is courteous, friendly, funny and quick witted. Dawn and I are not traditional people at all and was not looking for someone who was stoic and formal. Joyce made us laugh and our wedding was exactly as we had hoped it would be. I would highly recommend Joyce to everyone, every day of the week! We loved her!!

Joyce was the absolute best! From the moment we met her, we knew she was perfect for our ceremony. She is witty, full of life, and has great ideas to create the ceremony of your dreams. Our guests all said how beautiful our ceremony was. Thanks Joyce!

Joyce was the highlight of my wedding. Her professionalism, and welcoming spirit opened up the guest at our LGBT Wedding. It was a journey to find a great officiant, but the minute we sat down with Joyce she was the one and we knew it! Her options for ceremonies, and flexibility around “It’s your Day” is phenomenal. I would have been very saddened if we had not picked Joyce. So many things could have went wrong, Joyce made every shortcoming look like a crowd engagement moment with elegance and humor. To Joyce: Thank you so much for making our weddding day 1 to remember . You are amazing and keep wearing all the latest fashions and continue to be stunning and elegant.

From the very beginning Joyce was so incredibly helpful. We had no idea what to expect- not just from picking an officiant, but from the planning aspect as well- and Joyce was able to share her experience and ideas with us. She can recommend catering, photography, music, etc. On our wedding day she was there ready and set up so that I didn't have to worry or wait. During the ceremony she was just great and was able to break the ice and make both of us feel comfortable. Please give her a call if you need an officiant! It's the best and easiest move you could make for yourself on your wedding day ! Love her services !

As we were planning our wedding, my now husband and I were struggling to find an officiant. Joyce came recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. We knew as soon as we met Joyce that she would be our officiant - and we could not made a better choice! Joyce was responsive from day one right through to our ceremony. Joyce was flexible and allowed us to create exactly the ceremony that we wanted. But, most of all, Joyce is a genuine, warm, and kind person - not to mention humorous! She treated us like old friends from the moment that we met. It was it truly an honor to have such an amazing person marry us. We loved her and so did our guests! Thank you Joyce for an amazing ceremony (and for braving the cold that day). We could not have such a perfect day without you!

Your wedding day, was bitterly cold, and I almost turned blue....Your guests were lovely too, I enjoyed your day tremendously. I want to thank you both of you for serving this country, continue to stay safe in your jobs... Joyce

From the moment we contacted Joyce, it’s been a pleasant and professional experience. We had a more casual wedding but Joyce treats every marriage experience with utmost respect. We had a meet and greet to discuss details of our expectations and to talk face-to-face before she married us. Joyce is easy to talk to and share ideas with. She always puts the couples wishes as the basis of the ceremony. On our wedding day, Joyce is calm and has performed many ceremonies which helped put my nerves at ease (as the bride). The ceremony went beautifully and I’m so grateful we chose to have Joyce officiate our special day. Top notch professional and a beautiful person all in one!

Joyce, was responsive and wonderful from the moment I contacted her. She made a point to get to know us and make us comfortable before our big day. Joyce supplied a wealth of information about the process and even helpful tips about writing our vows! I had upmost confidence that Joyce would be there, fully prepared, and as helpful as ever on our actual wedding day. I would recommend Joyce to anyone. My wedding photographer even commented on how great she is and got her contact information. Thank you Joyce for being apart of our special day! Best, Liz and Joe
