Rhode Island Weddings

About Jill

Hi, first I’ll tell you a little bit about myself and why you should choose to have me be a part of your wedding. In 1974, I married my husband Rick in a small ceremony. We live on the island of Conanicut, also known as Jamestown. Some friends were having difficulty locating an officiant for their wedding a number of years ago and it occurred to me that it shouldn’t be that difficult. Weddings are such happy events, who wouldn’t want to participate? I became an ordained Minister in the Universal Life Church in 2008 and began making people happy. I truly love what I do.


Here on Jamestown, as all over Rhode Island, there are many wonderful locations to have your wedding from formal restaurants to beaches and state parks, like Beavertail,  to privately owned locations. Many of my couples have been creative in their locations. They have chosen a bridge, a boat, a cemetery, on a private island, even on a windswept point in a snowstorm!  Where you choose to hold your ceremony is the key to setting the mood for your special day.

Even more important is the officiant. It should be someone with whom you can identify and can trust to make your day perfect and memorable. For over 20 years my career was in customer service and the skills I developed serve me well in assisting you to plan the perfect day and a unique Ceremony.

Once RI allowed same sex Marriages I embraced the unique challenges often encountered and have assisted many such couples in creating a perfect Ceremony for them. Many Officiants are uncomfortable; I welcome and celebrate every couple.

Our first meeting is complimentary and with no obligation. Let’s get to know each other before we begin planning for your personalized Wedding Ceremony. Your Ceremony can be religious, semi-religious or civil, it’s your Wedding!

From the very beginning you will be able to reach me at any time by phone, text or email, it’s important to me that your questions be answered promptly. Your vows should be personal and yours alone. They should tell the story of who you are separately and why you pledge to spend the rest of your life together, you can create your own or have me assist you in selecting appropriate vows.

My fees are very reasonable and are based on your individual needs. Please call /text me at (401) 965.4291 or send an email to RevJill@cox.net.
