"We’ve never really been a “traditional” family or really even had much of a desire to get officially married. For years, we already treated our relationship as a marriage and traditional views didn’t quite encompass what we wanted out of a wedding celebration. It wasn’t until we met with Tim and Jen that we truly realized how excited we were to experience this process, one uniquely our own. Once we met Tim and Jen, we were able to see how authentic this kind of celebration would be to our established family, and we couldn’t be happier with the result of our gorgeous and inspiring fall mountain event! Tim and Jen created a customized ceremony for this milestone in our lives that fit our family and our desires. We wanted something intimate, easy-going, full of laughter, fun, and love. We wanted our children to be an important part of our ceremony, and we wanted to share it all with our closest family and friends. Tim and Jen worked closely with us to draft the perfect structure and atmosphere for our special day. Whatever is most important to you on your special day will be the essence of Tim and Jen’s every move during your experience, with utmost the respect, elegance, and communication."

"Writing and planning the ceremony are obviously two of the most important aspects of a wedding, but Tim and Jennifer made the process simple and really helped us to create a ceremony that was fun and meaningful. They had great ideas on ways to personalize the wedding and gave us multiple drafts to let us word the ceremony in a way that fit us and our wedding. They made the process easy and stress free, and were also very helpful in organizing the ceremony with the manager of our wedding venue. Our guests were extremely impressed with Tim and Jennifer and with how unique and personalized the entire ceremony was. They were great to work with and we would highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you both for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives!"

"We LOVED our Officiates! We decided to have both Jennifer and Tim perform our ceremony. They wrote our perfect ceremony... They had no problems with the many changes I made. And they made it perfect. After the ceremony everyone was raving about how perfect it was. I highly recommend them to anyone, and If you should go with them have both of them perform the ceremony!"

"When I look back at our wedding I most vividly remember my morning mountain bike ride. After that I have wonderful memories of how special our ceremony was and how it was so touching and moving for everyone that was there to share it with us. My husband and I are not really religious people. We loved how Jennifer's approach to our wedding ceremony focused on creating our love story and sharing that with all our family and friends.
From the beginning Jennifer was wonderful. We had a phone call followed by an initial meeting and she was so prepared with research and enthusiam to make our ceremony super special for us. The ceremony was amazing! I got feedback from many guests that they had never experienced such a touching ceremony. I know we made the right choice. I look forward to being able to relive those feelings often with the beautiful bound copy that was Jennifer's gift to us following the ceremony."

"We hired Tim and Jen to do our Hawaiian Style wedding and were very happy at all they did to make our ceremony wonderful! We meet with Tim a few weeks before the wedding date and he wrote a unique ceremony copy that included some Hawaiian traditions that he researched for us. He also got to know us and included a few fun stories in the ceremony about how we met and my proposal. Jen was a great help at the rehearsal and day of the ceremony to keep the wedding party coordinated and give Tim the help he needed to pull off a beautiful event. We would highly recommend Tim and Jen and their services - first class all the way!"

"For our wedding, we used Celebrating Times of Change (Jennifer Bailey) as our officant. My husband and I knew that we wanted more than a judge, but did not want our ceremony to be in the usual religious format either. After much research, we knew that a celebrant was the way to go as we wanted someone that could help us display our love and really bring life to our wedding ceremony with special and unique touches that best represented US as a couple. Throughout the entire process, Jennifer was detailed and committed to making our ceremony and "love story" one that we felt represented who we are and the type of ceremony we were hoping to have. Many of our guests commented that our ceremony was indeed unique and that Jennifer's approach was reflective and harmonious with the setting of our wedding. She put 110% into writing our ceremony and captured our personalities well. She was always availbale for any questions or thoughts concerning any revisions that we wanted or needed. Her organization was apparent from day one which had an extremely calming effect as I knew I could count on Jennifer, something that any bride can truly appreciate when immersed in wedding planning. Thank you Jennifer for making our day as special as we had hoped!"

"Tim and Jen,
Meredith and I can't thank you enough for all of your efforts in writing and performing our wedding ceremony. When we came to you, all we had was a general sense of what was important to us in a wedding and a marriage, and a few key words and phrases that we wanted integrated into the ceremony. It was important to us that our wedding represented our secular values, but with sensitivity to the religious beliefs of some of our family and friends that would be in attendance. You took these concerns to heart, and developed a beautiful, unique ceremony that captured both the tone and meaning of everything we had discussed. As soon as you began reading the first draft of the ceremony to us, we could tell how carefully you had listened. The wording was elegant and poetic, and the cadence and quality of your public speaking voice added further to the beauty of the ceremony. We also loved the imaginative bonding ceremony that you created with the bowl of stones. It was a beautiful and unique addition to our wedding, and we are so pleased to have the stones now as a continual reminder of our vows.
Our experience with you was wonderful, and we still receive compliments on the ceremony from our families. Thank you again for everything!

"Jennifer and Tim,
We wanted to thank you for being such an integral part of our wedding. We were sincerely touched by the eloquent way you put together what we desired in our ceremony. You spoke beautifully about nature and the importance of elemental balance in our marriage in accordance with Feng Shui. We are eternally grateful for your contribution to our very special day!"
