Wedding Officiant in 20879

Your marriage ceremony should be one-of-a-kind and reflect your vision for your special day. I provide a comprehensive service; which includes working with you from planning to delivery of creative and personalized vows that will  convey to you and to your guests the love and commitment you share. 

Recent reviews from clients:

“Our ceremony was just perfect! The wording you selected made it so special and personal and we had many compliments from our guests" -Huijung & Joe 12/9/17 “We wanted to thank you very much for a wonderful wedding that you helped us craft by creating a beautiful ceremony speech and guiding us through the whole process. Thank you for your time and flexibility!” -Ivana & George 9/23/17

Because the vows you exchange during your marriage ceremony are some of the most poignant and significant words you will ever speak in your lifetime; I help you focus on what you want your marriage ceremony to be and the tone you wish to convey.

Included is an in-person meeting to learn about your love story, get to know each other, and make suggestions on the best ceremony that will fit your personalities and preferences.

I offer officiant services for couples who want a commitment ceremony, vow renewal ceremony, or elopement ceremony. Couples may choose from traditional, contemporary, non-denominational, spiritual, interfaith, cross-cultural, and secular ceremonies.

I am a member of The International Association of Professional Wedding Officiants (IAPWO) and licensed in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Each ceremony I preside over is custom-made to each couple’s specifications and this has its own distinctive personality.

Joan did an phenomenal job, she took her time writing out the script and helping us with our vows. She also was available whenever we needed her always answering all emails calls can even though we scheduled a last-minute. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who's getting married. She also understood things we didn't want in our wedding it was very accepting of everything we did not want on our way with our views following any and all directions that we had thank you so much.
Entwined Vows responded with the following comments:

Our experience with Joan was phenomenal. She was flexible enough to meet with us so we could get to know her before booking her services. She was incredibly responsive with emails as we initiated the ceremony script review process. She also checked in on us to make sure we had our face-to-face meeting scheduled. We spoke to Joan on the phone twice during the process. She was eager to learn about each of our families and the unique traditions we wanted to honor in her script. She practiced pronunciations of names she'd say during the ceremony (we have some tough names in our families!) and provided great advice about the actual logistics of the ceremony. The day of, Joan was incredibly professional, sensitive, and spoke so beautifully. We received comments from almost all our guests about how much they loved the ceremony. Our close family who interacted with Joan told us she was so sweet to work with during the hectic time leading up to the actual ceremony. Joan also did us the honor of joining us in some pictures after the ceremony, taken by our photographer. We were, in every way, pleased with our experience with Joan. She made our special day very meaningful and really kicked off the day in a very positive way! Thank you for everything, Joan!
