I know, as a newly married bride of one year, I planned my entire wedding down right to the wedding ceremony. My wedding ceremony was the most unique anyone had ever experienced! To give you a hint. I walked into the church singing down the aisle! My name is Reverend Myriam Sollberger. I am the owner of Jougies and an ordained minister. At Jougies, we will work closely with you to create a customized ceremony that will not only celebrate the uniqueness of your sacred relationship but will represent the rest of your lives. Our belief, marriage is your sacrament, the ceremony should represent your love for each other.

Standard Wedding Ceremony Package & Process
We offer a free, no-obligation consultation with me as your potential officiant before you sign our contract. We conduct the initial consultation via Zoom or Google Meets virtual conferencing. If you would rather meet me in person, we are happy to accommodate and will meet close to your home. We will reserve your wedding date for 10 business days after our initial meeting. If you feel that our officiate services are a great match! And you would like to move forward, you will simply contact us, and we will move forward to booking your date and sign the contract.
Once you’ve signed our contract, Jougies policy requires a 50% reservation fee same day of signing the contract. I, as your officiant, will schedule you for a ceremony planning meeting. This meeting normally happens in person, but due to Covid-19, it can also be done via video call. I will ask you questions about what you feel is important to you for your ceremony. I will get to know you . The information I obtain will help me as your officiant in writing your ceremony to ensure that your entire wedding experience is reflective of your beliefs and both of your personalities.
After our planning meeting, Jougies will create a full draft of your ceremony. The draft will be provided to you for review. Feel free to edit your wedding ceremony draft, add music, whatever you want! We can make as many changes as you want up until two weeks prior to your wedding ceremony. Once we are all in agreement of your final ceremony revision, we will finalize the ceremony for the big day! Any additional suggestions or guidance you would like for Jougies to provide you; we will be more than happy to assist you at no charge. We will also offer you a wedding rehearsal. Rehearsals are optional.
The Big Day
I will arrive at your ceremony wedding venue prior to the ceremony scheduled time, assist your attendants, vendors, and prepare for the processional. Jougies will be happy to work with your other wedding professionals
The Marriage License
Jougies will assist you with this process. You must obtain the marriage license prior to the wedding day. We recommend submitting an application at least 5 weeks prior to the actual date. This is especially important for New Jersey residents. As your officiant, Jougies will take care of signing it after the ceremony and file it with the local municipality Clerk Office. You will also receive an official copy of the marriage license from the Clerk of the Court and a marriage certificate from Jougies.
Pre-marital counseling is an addition service available to you. These sessions, should you choose this as part of your package will engage you in fun exercises to strengthen your bond as a couple and prepare you for the sacrament of marriage.
