What people are saying
We had a magical wedding / elopement day, thanks in large part to #TeamReinking (Jackie our officiant, and Sascha our photographer). In lieu of a traditional wedding, we knew that the ceremony was going to be important in making our big day feel “official” and special. Jackie delivered above and beyond our expectations. Here is why: [ Her way with words ] : Jackie took our feedback and customized a ceremony draft that was genuine and moving. It really set the tone for our big day. She paid attention to small details we shared and incorporated them beautifully into the ceremony. We had the day recorded by videographers—after watching a sneak peek video of the ceremony, friends and relatives got curious who our officiant was because they were touched by Jackie’s words. [ Easy communication ] : We only communicated by email during the planning phase, but we felt at ease the whole time because of Jackie’s responsiveness. [ Warm and sincere ] : Jackie has such a warm personality. We felt her love and support, and her presence made our wedding so much more special. She officiated our ceremony on the windy waterfront of Brooklyn Bridge Park on a frigid snow day—without skipping a beat! Thank you Jackie for celebrating one of the biggest days of our lives in a way that is so genuine and caring. We are forever #TeamReinking.
Jackie is an incredible officiant, we couldn't have asked for better. She exceeded all of our expectations and made our ceremony special and memorable. She even came to the rescue when we had a little mishap with the rings. Jackie made us feel so comfortable from the very first moment we had contact. It felt like we knew her for years. Also, Jackie responded quickly to any questions we had before our wedding and worked with us to create vows that we were happy with. She used our story and the input from our friends and family and incorporated it into the entire ceremony. She made us laugh, tear up, and laugh again during the ceremony. Highly recommended to anyone getting married in the future!
It was such a pleasure working with Jackie! She made us feel at ease and her delivery of the ceremony was heartfelt and meaningful. She added a very special unexpected touch at the end involving my step daughter that brought everyone to tears. The process of finalizing the ceremony/vows was easy and she is truly a natural at what she does. Everyone in attendance loved her. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant
Jackie was amazing with myself and husband Paddy, who was very nervous on the day. Right up to the ceremony he was excited and definitely not nervous, when we arrived at Central Park, Paddy got emotional, not through nerves just with life circumstances. We came away we eloped left family behind, & as most families this was out of our control, some members of family were deseased. During our ceremony my husband was emotional but Jackie smiled at us both she spoke so clearly, she was so professional and she was so cheerful and happy. To the human eye people would not get our ceremony but our family did. It ment so much to them to be able to watch the ceremony live over Skype. I am so glad that Jackie & her husband Sascha Reinking made this possible for us.. If anyone was to ask me. Would you change it make it better.? Never it was perfect thank you so much Jackie Reinking. You got myself & Paddy to a T. I will be for ever grateful. Xxx
We worked with Jackie, and her lovely husband Sascha for our elopement, and you couldn't ask for a nicer couple. You can tell that romance runs through their veins, so they're exactly the people that you want to entrust your special day to. Jackie was warm, friendly, thoughtful, and accommodating - she was more than happy to have our families get in touch with her to provide some input into the ceremony and crafted it to be a great reflection of our quirky personalities which we loved. The reading that Jackie chose for our ceremony was perfect and she took great care to be the reassuring presence that helps to bring it all together. We cannot recommend Jackie highly enough, and if you're looking for the absolute dream team, Jackie and Sascha are unrivalled.
Jackie wrote up such an amazing ceremony! The ceremony she wrote was spot on for us. Since we eloped I had stressed about the extra hands those who have a Maid of Honor and Best Man, who holds the rings, where do I put my vows at, etc. Jackie has obviously dealt with these small details and immediately told us how to handle such things. That small amount of help allowed me to really focus on the ceremony and my husband. It was perfect.
