Reverend Jan is a gifted public speaker who relishes the opportunity to witness the love, devotion and dreams of the wedding couple as they prepare to join their lives together. She then happily assists them by performing a ceremony that reflects who they are as individuals and as a couple along with their intentions for their future together.Jan takes this responsibility very seriously, yet with a lightness of heart that translates into a ceremony of joy and humor, inclusive of all the guests who gather to celebrate the couple’s special day. She celebrates weddings in all traditions as well as non-traditional and non-religious ceremonies. Jan also enjoys performing 12-Step ceremonies for recovering couples and blended family ceremonies for couples that wish to include their children of any age in celebrating their new life as a family.

For Jan, performing the marriage ceremony is a synthesis of her life experience as an artist, actor, vocalist and spiritual seeker. She believes that marriage, and our desire to be married, recognizes and celebrates our most important life connections—with the love of our life and the love in our life, the amazing love of our family and friends. It is her greatest desire that her wedding couples will remember their specially created marriage ceremony as an experience of loving exchange and the promise of the love between them and around them.


Dear Jan, The feedback from guests at our wedding at Kellerman’s in White Bear Lake was awesome.  Our guests thought you did an amazing job. After thinking about it a little I thought Rev. Susan and I did pretty good, in designing the ceremony, too!  The ceremony wording and options available from Susan was more than enough to make our ceremony really special to us. I really appreciated you getting us into line and doing what was needed. Without you our marriage ceremony would not have been complete nor would we have signed the marriage certificate! We will always remember the Wedding ceremony thanks to you and Susan.

Thank you Susan for all your help.  You’ve made it so easy for us with all of the wonderful material to choose from.  You were so awesome to work with.  Most of all throughout this whole process you were so quick to answer any of our questions.  Of everything we had to do to plan for the wedding you’ve made this process the easiest.  We both agree that out of everything we enjoyed and loved the ceremony the most.  Jan did a wonderful job and we couldn’t be happier.  She was such a trooper standing out in the freezing cold and killer wind with us.  I was so impress how she could deliver the words and message of our ceremony with so much warmth and grace even though it was that cold and windy. Everything was perfect!

I was so happy with Affordable I Do’s. I used them for officiant services only. Susan was wonderful to work with and putting together the ceremony was so much fun. Jan was our officiant and she was great! All our guests complimented us on the ceremony, they said it was beautiful and fit us as a couple perfectly. This was all because of Susan and her efforts of getting to know us and “our story”. I HIGHLY recommend Affordable I Do’s.

Dear Rev. Jan,

We were extremely pleased with you as our officiant! The rehearsal went very well and you kept everyone on task. The ceremony was great and we had several people
comment that they thought you did very well. Once we met you, it was comforting to know that we would have you running our ceremony and that we could trust you and had one less thing to worry about!
