Jilian was extremely helpful. I had a phone meeting with her one day during my lunch break at work a few weeks before the wedding on a day that I was under quite a bit of stress, and I was relieved when she told me that she had already taken care of many details related to my wedding plans. She had great ideas, and, with her help, my parents and I planned my dream wedding. I highly recommend Jilian to plan your wedding. More...

Jillian is a great officiant! Her online vow ceremony set-up was great and helped us know exactly how the ceremony would go without having to have a lengthy or in-person meeting prior to the wedding. Jillian was also on time and stayed around for a bit after the ceremony to make sure all the paperwork was filled out appropriately. I would 100% recommend her for your Daytona Beach area wedding!

Jillian was wonderful throughout the experience. We planned the wedding through emails and she was very easy to communicate with. Jillian was great with my son and even took some photos for us when our photographer ran late. We couldn't have picked a better person to officiate. More...

On May 4th Jillian Shaw officiated my wedding ceremony. Let me just say that she did an outstanding service for Billy and I.
I must also say that this was a backyard wedding and it was raining. Jillian Shaw stood in the drops of rain with us, I can’t express all the emotions I was feeling but I can say we’re 100% satisfied and would definitely recommend!

We came down from WI for a small intimate ceremony. We wanted a beach ceremony but didnt know the are. She suggested an area on the beach that she has used before and it was PERFECT. She didn't rush through the ceremony and took her time with the vows. It was beyond our expectations. More...

We are so happy with our experience with Jillian with A Lovely Engagement! We planned a last minute (less than 2 weeks notice) private beach wedding on the beach in New Smyrna Beach. Jillian was very responsive, flexible, and really helped guide us through the entire process - from applying for our marriage license (we’re from out of state) to personalizing our vows to even taking a few pictures for us after our ceremony. The process was easy, stress-free and exactly what we wanted. Thank you for everything Jillian! More...

From the first email to the final day, her service was above anything I expected. Her decorations, set up and ceremony were beautiful. I can't say enough about how perfect it was. We had a small wedding with just a few friends and family and they all said it was what they wish they had. Not much can beat that comment. More...

Jillian was awesome to work with! Our wedding went off with out a hitch and everything was perfect! The beach setup was beautiful and she handled everything, which took so much pressure off of my wife and I. This was even more important since we were out of state. We arrived in Florida on Saturday and, without any hiccups or headaches, Jillian had us all set up and performed our ceremony on Sunday evening. I couldn't have asked for more! Thank you so much Jillian!! More...

Ceremonies by the Sea is amazing! My wife and I were looking to plan a very simple beach wedding at Canaveral National Seashore. Jillian was the perfect officiant for the occasion. While she does offer full planning and setup, we had our own benches and arbor and just used her as an officiant and added the sand ceremony. Even still, she was always quick to respond to emails and calls and gave us the ability to fully customize the ceremony and vows. Everything went perfectly and we highly recommend them for any beach wedding! More...

Jillian was great! We live in NY, and she helped us build our ceremony without actually being there or seeing anything in person. Her communication and suggestions were excellent. The ceremony was easy and fun to design, and she provided plenty of photos and options to help us visualize things.
The set-up was truly my dream wedding, and the delivering of the ceremony by her was beautiful and touching. She was helpful, kind, and truly seemed invested in us as a couple.
We couldn't have asked for a better, more seamless experience!

As any couple, or woman would, I long dreamed about my wedding day and event.
It was a second marriage for both of us, so not a grand wedding, but intimate, special, timely and just PERFECT was our goal.
She delivered!
I have never met anyone so very in tuned to our needs, on OUR day!
Even though four ceremony and wedding lasted a relatively short period of time, Ms. Shaw was there- PRESENT- every minute.
I remember looking into her eyes during the vows and feeling her give to my husband and I the expression of love for the he and I to bond with, hearing her every word with grace and sincerity.
She actually made the difference in this entire wedding- she made this remarkable for us.
We have NO DOUBTS that her ability to perform any ceremony or special event is expertise and highly sought after.

Picture yourself relaxing on your wedding day with your Maid of Honor, Bridesmaids, your Mother, and your soon to be Mother-in law in your bridal suite drinking mimosas, eating snacks, laughing and having a carefree day all while preparing to marry the love of your life. Your phone isn't ringing off the hook with vendors calling you wanting to know where to go or what to do. Your bridal party isn't running around putting out fires when they should be relaxing with you getting their hair and makeup done. And, you're not worried about a single thing. Does this sound like the perfect wedding day to you? Well, this was my wedding day and it was absolutely perfect because we hired Jillian as our day-of coordinator. My husband and I planned our wedding and had a blast doing so. But, we needed someone to bring all of our already planned details together for a smooth and seamless wedding day. One that we could relax through as we prepared to make a lifetime commitment to each other. Weeks before our wedding, Jillian began reaching out to all of our vendors and provided them with her contact info and detailed itineraries so every single person associated with our wedding knew exactly what was going on at any given moment. Jillian had color coordinated itineraries for our entire wedding party at the rehearsal. She made sure everyone knew exactly what to do and how to do it. She thought of things before they even happened and had a plan to overcome any hurdle. We have received compliments from nearly every single guest regarding how orchestrated our wedding was and we still cannot believe that absolutely NOTHING went wrong. When we first began discussing vendors, we were not sure we needed a day-of coordinator because we planned every detail and thought we could handle it. But, after reading Jillian's reviews and looking at her perfectly organized and informative website, we decided she was a necessity. Hiring Jillian was on of the smartest decisions we made! More...

We are so thankful for you. She was willing to be available at the drop of the hat given she had no power and little internet service during Hurricane Irma. During our ceremony she added great verbiage to our already written vows that were great. Which showed she knew what needed to be said on top of our own thoughts to increase our moment of matrimony to next level.
Thank you so much for being there for us. You made our day XTRA special especially under the Hurricane trials we had.

I cannot say enough fantastic things about Jillian. She stepped in for my wedding as a later addition and I am so thankful she did. The digital software system she uses to create ceremonies and to sketch up the design are phenomenal. Her ceremony builder alone took all the fear out of making sure our ceremony was exactly what we wanted and how we wanted to be represented. We honestly feared that portion and she made it one of the easiest parts of planning a wedding! Not only did she provide top notch services but she ended up becoming a small part of our family as well. You won't be disappointed using Ceremonies By The Sea! More...

3 March 2017

My wedding day was the happiest day of my life, and Jillian made sure that everything went perfectly! My husband and I got married on New Smyrna Beach. There was a hotel behind us, and the residents said that Jillian was there four hours in advance digging to put the archway in, raking the sand, and making a sea shell aisle. Jillian was helpful, respectful and flexible about the kind of ceremony we wanted: from our vows, to her role, unlimited availability over the phone and email, and even right down to the white roses on the archway! She got my father and my brother to sign as witnesses very quickly, officiated the ceremony, and handled all the paperwork (we simply received our marriage license in the mail!). My husband and I are both writers, so we wrote our own vows. We are also musicians, so I sang our song and he played guitar. Jillian is in our pics, and the look on her face showed that she really loves what she does, and I was so glad to share our joy with such a wonderful person. I have Crohn's disease, and unfortunately went into the hospital the very next day (first day of my marriage). My husband stood by me, and we joked about "in sickness and in health" coming very early! When I look back at that time, I don't think about spending a week in the hospital, I think about the happiest day of my life- I have my husband, my family and friends, and definitely Jillian to thank for that. Absolutely wonderful person- I can't think of anyone better to help plan, set up, and officiate your beach wedding. Thanks Jillian, from the bottom of our hearts! More...

As much as I enjoyed Jillian on my wedding day, and my wedding day was beautiful, I was really disappointed by the fact that she was so professional. She knew was she was doing, yes, but I expected her to feel more friendly. It seemed so staged. Like she had done it alot for other people. There wasn't very much emotional intimacy... She was very helpful before the wedding and after. More...

Jillian was a pleasure to work with. She was prompt to respond to emails, and always willing to answer our questions.

Jillian was extremely helpful and perfect for our wedding. To begin, she was always very easy to contact and would usually answer emails in less than an hour. She helped us select the perfect wedding package and even made sure we understood the process of getting married in Florida. The creation of the wedding vows was extremely easy using the tool on her website. It was easy to go through and select the different sections or add our own vows. During the wedding Jillian was amazing. Her reading of the vows was very loud and clear and she made no mistakes. She even had tissues for us :) I would recommend her to everyone! More...

Jillian Shaw was a life saver when our previous officiant had to cancel 8 days before our wedding. She was very prompt and professional in putting my mind at ease. Jillian came highly recommended by our venue Harmony Gardens and had excellent reviews from previous couples who used her services. Jillian's website was very user friendly and offered a ceremony generator which made the process easy and personal to us. The generator prompts allowed for us to choose from contemporary, traditional, and modern versus. I would highly recommend Jillian and her services to anyone looking for an officiant in the Volusia County area. More...

Jillian was absolutely the best person to officiate our wedding. She provided the perfect blend of causal and professional that exactly matched our wedding day. Our guests were so impressed with her that an engaged couple lamented that they were getting married in a different state and couldn't have her as their officiant. The ceremony builder allowed me to make the words we said and the ones Jillian said so true to who we are as a couple and how we envision our lives together. I could not be happier with the service we were provided. Thank you Jillian!!!! More...

I contacted Jillian about 3 weeks before the date I wanted to get married. My husband and I had been together for 15 years and decided to finally get married so we picked a date and I called Jillian the next day. She was absolutely wonderful! She not only told me that she had the date available, but helped me pick the perfect time and gave me options for décor that would be perfect for my small on the beach wedding. She made everything so simple and got back to me right away to answer questions I had. I knew right away that she would make everything perfect and I was right! Thanks to Jillian, I had the wedding of my dreams even more perfect than I had ever imagined! More...

Jillian was amazing to work with and made everything stress free. She encouraged us to add our own personal pieces to our ceremony but it was helpfull that she already had samples that helped build the ceremony online. Her ceremony builder was really easy to use. She has a great personality for her position. Our family and friends complimented her all night at the reception. She truly cares about what she does and making sure everyone is happy. More...

She was fantastic. We changed wedding venues at the last minute and even more last minute we needed music. Jillian was quick to come to the rescue with a sound system.

What a delightful, interesting and likable person. We couldn't have had a better ceremony. Thanks to Jennifer Juniper Photography for recommending Jillian. And, thanks to Jillian for making our day the best every.

Jillian was wonderfully caring and professional. She was easy to reach and answered every question that we had.

Jillian was awesome. We were planning a Florida wedding from Missouri and it was convenient to set everything up online, pay, and communicate with her. It was really easy to customize our vows how we wanted them. The day of the wedding (which was the first time we had actually met her) she went over last minute details with us like how to get the best photographer shots of the ring exchange. We had several guests tell us that they really liked her, even my super picky father-in-law. We didn't use any of Jillians services for decorations, but after doing it ourselves I kind of wish we had! I would highly recommend Jillian to any couple getting married in the Daytona/New Smyrna Beach area! More...

9 July 2015

We were so happy we found Jillian to be our officiant. She's kind, funny and very professional. She was able to make us both feel comfortable in the moment. She even assisted us with our sand ceremony when our vessel started leaking sand. She kept the mood light and airy (even though I cried saying my vows). But the entire process of working with her was a breeze. The pricing was amazing and we loved that she had the ceremony packet which enabled us to select a ceremony that fit who we are as a couple as well as being able to incorporate our own vows. We also liked that she took the marriage license after the ceremony and filed it for us so we didn't have to worry about it. We couldn't be happier with our choice for an officiant! Thanks so much!!

U
15 June 2015

We worked with Jillian as our officiant for our beach wedding, and we also hired her to do some decorations and a few hours of wedding coordination. She is very personable and easy to work with. Everything went really well. We elected to conduct our own rehearsal to save some $$. There were a few "funny" mistakes on our part during the ceremony... not pouring the sand correctly for the sand ceremony, and using the wrong hand for the rings... so we probably should have gone through those details during the rehearsal, but even with that, many people told us that the ceremony was really beautiful, and personalized and meaningful. This was nice because we are not very religious so we did not have a traditional religious ceremony, but we used the online planning tool that Jillian has to customize our ceremony. It was great because it had all kinds of ideas to incorporate and you can use the many options she has for all different parts of the ceremony, or you can type in your own words. This helps to make a unique and personalized ceremony without having to come up with every detail and idea on your own.

The main thing that was disappointing to me was that we had asked our fiends to video tape the ceremony with a go pro, and they told us they did record a video because our officiant asked them not to. Now, I will say that this is mostly my fault because she did tell me she was going to ask for people to not take video and pictures during the ceremony so that it would be easier for the professional photographer. So anyway, I would just be sure that if you are going to do anything like this, to give clear instructions to the people videoing and also let Jillian know the plan. I wish I would have done this, but being a bride you have a millions things going on and this one slipped my mind!

All in all, I would recommend Jillian and Ceremonies by the Sea, especially if you need help with ideas to make your ceremony meaningful and personalized!

My wife and I were planning to have a civil wedding at the courthouse to establish our wedding date and then a larger ceremony later this year, but during the last week before the civil wedding was to be conducted, we decided to make it a little more special.
Jillian went above and beyond for our ceremony. She was flexible with our desired date and time and helped coordinate everything with us, even playing the role of impromptu photographer. Her online web application allowed us to customize our ceremony to our personal tastes and relieved us of some of the stress of writing our vows. She was professional and maintained a positive attitude through the entire process. I would definitely recommend her services.

If you're looking to get married on the beach in the Daytona Beach area, look no further than Jillian!

We were looking to get married on the beach in Daytona but didnt know where to begin or what to do since we live in Texas. After doing some internet research we came accross Jillian's website (Ceremonies by the Sea) and contacted her to get more details and to check her availability for the date we selected. Jillian responded to our inquiries quickly and made the entire ceremony process easy and stress free. She educated us about the marriage license acquisition process, help us select a fantastic site on the beach, recommended a great photographer, helped us put together our wedding vows, and provided all the necessary 'decorations' for the ceremony.

On the day of the wedding, she secured the ceremony site several hours early since we were having the ceremony on a public beach (Lighthouse Park at Ponce Inlet), and even helped my beautiful bride get ready for the wedding once we arrived.

Jillian performed a beautiful ceremony and was fantastic to work throughout the entire process. If it werent for her wedding expertise, professionalism, and flexibility, our wedding day would not have been as great as it was!! We're truly grateful for all the hard work and time Jillian put in to make our wedding day a memorable experience.

Thanks Jillian! You're the Greatest!!!

I think she did an amazing job and the ceremony was at a great pace! I think it was to expensive for just 15 minute vow renewal.

Overall if the price was lower for this type of event I would definitely use her again she was a joy and very perfessional! More...

Ceremonies by the Sea did an exceptional job guiding us through everything for our wedding from picking the venue to choosing everything we wanted in the ceremony. Jillian was truly professional and made us feel like we have known her forever. She made our "Special Day" extra special! More...

What can we say, Jillian Shaw more than exceeded our expectations! We told her what we wanted and she was a total professional in putting everything together for us. ..at the very last minute. (We decided during our drive to Biketoberfest that we would get married in Daytona Beach!). Lucky to have found her! More...

We sent a request for information through her website on a Sunday afternoon, and Jillian called us within about half an hour. We really didn't expect that, but she said she just happened to be home and logged on...

The process of selecting what we wanted and designing our own ceremony couldn't have been simpler. We loved it.

The day of the wedding, Jillian arrived about 15 minutes early, and was thoroughly professional in all aspects. Bright, friendly, organized and prepared. After the ceremony, she stayed around for a few minutes to make sure we had some good photos taken.

We couldn't be happier with everything about the process, start to finish.

We were wowed way beyond our expectations. Jillian is a jewel. She took care of every detail and Laura, my new bride was very impressed. If we lived in the area, I think we would make an extra effort to let people know how wonderful our wedding was with the beauty she made everything. Thank you so much Jillian from us, Johnny and Laura Bratton More...

We had a wonderful experience with Able Notary & Weddings. When the photographer was less than we expected she stepped up to direct her in good poses. We had a sunrise beach service that was hectic due to children and mothers-in-law never in the right place, the groom being late, and the overall craziness of the day. Thank you! More...

I did not have to worry about any part of the ceremony and I got multiple compliments from our guests about how wonderful she was. More...

I found Jillian on the web. She emailed me right away & that same day she called me. Within 2 minutes of talking to her I knew I wanted her to be our wedding officiant. I live in NY and was planning on getting married in 2 1/2 weeks in Ormond Beach, FL. Jillian actually helped me pick out my wedding venue which was perfect! She is so friendly and professional she put me at ease. She was always available to answer any questions I had. She even helped take pictures after our ceremony and made everyone feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend Able Notary & Wedding to everyone. Jillian will make any bride feel comfortable from the moment they talk to her!! More...

Jillian was lovely. We were looking for someone "more than a Notary & less than a priest" as we wanted an outdoor ceremony for our last- minute plans. Cancer has a way of changing plans...life. Well as heaven would have it we found Jillian's website. Blessing. She worked with me on our date & times, writing our vows and choosing the ceremony style and wording. I never thought I would work so easily and so focused, with someone I only spoke to by phone and email regarding my wants & needs. But she did it. And she checked back and double checked. Very professional. Very patient. My guests gave her tremendous compliments and I highly recommend Jillian with 5 full stars for your next Wedding. Mrs Murphy Davis More...

Jillian was amazing, she was always there when we needed her and was quick to respond to emails and texts :-) Our vows were beautiful, we wanted to include our children in them but still make it personal and she was able to do that for us. Everyone was able to hear her even through the wind at the beach. Jillian also stayed and helped us with photographs. I would recommend her to anyone!! She really was great! More...
