Jackie was professional yet warm and kind. She gave us so many options and included all the personal stuff we wanted in our ceremony. We only met Jackie 5 mins before our ceremony (as we live overseas) and we felt instantly comfortable with her. We had so many compliments from our friends and family on how fantastic she was. We could not recommend her more. More...
From start to finish, Jackie was fantastic to work with. She provided lots of suggestions for various readings to help customize the ceremony to fit our relationship. Reading what she put together ahead of time was so wonderful, of course it took a couple of tries because I could not hold back the tears with how beautifully it was written, I didn't change a single word. Not only did Jackie write such a lovely ceremony but she executed it to perfection, not a dry eye in the house! Our family could not stop talking about it afterwords.
We used her husband Sascha as our photographer and I have to say there's nothing more special and intimate than getting married by a married couple. It was a wonderful and one of a kind experience that my husband and I will cherish forever! More...
Jackie was so sweet and helpful for our last minute elopement - we loved working with her!
Super Zusammenarbeit mit Team Reinking. Immer wieder gerne.
Ceremony von Jackie wurde genau auf unsere Geschichte abgestimmt.
Jackie is a very sympathetic and sweet person. From the first contact via email to our ceremony we felt very comfortable with her. She designed the ceremony perfectly for us and realized our wishes very well. We were so nervous.But Jackie and Sascha were so sympathetic to us that we felt very happy. They made our day perfect for us. They are simply the best team. Thanks for that! More...
Hi, my name is Nicole and i am from Germany. I married my husband on our vacation in New York. Jackie did our ceremony in the central Park and that was the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. The planning with her is great. She is such a lovely person. Jackie is just incredible. More...
Jackie was an outstanding, stellar, PERFECT officiant. Words truly cannot express how happy we were with her being our officiant. What she wrote was so perfect for us, our families still talk about it! If you want your wedding to have that extra dash of magic - use Jackie as your officiant. More...

Jackie is awesome. She was very responsive and helpful in answering any of my questions, even weeks after the ceremony when I was stressing out about the status of my marriage certificate (it took awhile to arrive in the mail)! She crafted our ceremony with so much care and made sure that our ceremony was personal and intimate. Choosing to work with Team Reinking for our wedding day was definitely one of the best decisions we've made! They made our wedding day very special, smooth and memorable. Thank you so much Jackie! More...
We found Jackie through her husband Sascha who we hired as our photographer, when searching for elopements in NYC. We found Jackie to be very friendly and was also readily available to discuss any aspect of our day. She was really easy to work with regarding our cermony and wanted to ensure it was tailored exactly to who we are. On the day she completely put us at ease and gave us the exact ceremony we wanted. I would highly recommend Jackie for anyone looking to get married in NYC. More...
We were so happy with the way Jackie could customize our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted and nothing we didn't.
Jackie is a very lovable, friendly and relaxed personality and we are so happy we chose Jackie for our day.
Jackie is the perfect wedding officiant. She is very funny, calms the couple down and the ceremony with her was just beautiful. Thank you so much!
Best decision ever that we chose an officiant for our wedding. And even better that we chose Jackie as ours (and her husband Sascha for the photography).
Very helpful from the very beginning, easy going and professional, which made it really easy for us.
We got to see a draft of our ceremony before the big day... which might have made us tear up a little...but not as much as the big day, because when Jackie adds her voice onto those words, they are even more touching.
Our day became that great, thanks to her and her husband Sascha.
Thank you guys! And all the very best,
Nina & Kenneth More...
Our expectations have been exceeded. Jackie and Sascha helped us with so many things to make this day in NYC unforgettable!!!
Jackie got us married on the top of the rock in NYC. We came all the way from Germany to get married by Jackie. Her husband Sascha Reinking took the pictures. Jackie is a very friendly and a very cordial person. We felt very comfortable during the ceremony with her. She is doing her job very professionell and we are so happy that we got to know her. If you want to have perfect pictures of your ceremony you should book Jackie's husband Sascha, too. They make a great team. More...
To say that Jackie is amazing doesn't really feel like enough. We hired Jackie and her husband Sascha (who is a photographer) for our wedding and I still can't believe how lucky we were to find them.
From the first time we spoke to them on skype, we instantly felt like they were old friends. Jackie is such a warm person who is so totally chill that you can't help but feel at ease. I was so anxious about the whole process of planning a wedding (let alone handling all of the paperwork nobody tells you about) and even before we had signed the contract, Jackie was so incredibly helpful and kind. Throughout the planning phase she was extremely responsive to any questions we had and shared her tips and recommendations with us without hesitation.
She made communication so easy by planning our ceremony with us via email, she sent a list of readings for us to choose from and asked us to write a little something about each other for her to include in the ceremony. We felt supported and listened to every step of the way as she put together a ceremony that reflected who we are as individuals and as a couple. When she sent us the draft, I was overwhelmed with emotion at how perfectly she hit the nail on the head.
The day of had some unforeseen weather extremes (it was absurdly hot) and my husband and I were very delayed getting to the venue, so everything in our timeline shifted. She stayed calm, supportive and focused on providing the ceremony we envisioned and was a much needed source of reassurance and encouragement to my frazzled husband and I.
The ceremony was so perfect, it made us laugh and cry and allowed us to truly focus on each other, which is the best thing you can ask for on your wedding day. Following the ceremony she assisted her husband Sascha with the photography and was just such a joy to hang out with. This woman is so good that she was even snagging food for us in between shots!
Our families were so thrilled with the ceremony, our guests and even the caterer commented on how very warm and fantastic Jackie and her husband are as a team. I truly cannot recommend Team Reinking enough - having them as such big and important parts of our wedding day was the best and easiest decision we made! More...
We booked Jackie and her husband Sascha for our ceremony in NYC in June 2019. Having these two with us on this special day was the best decision! Jackie is the sweetest person and a wonderful officiant! Communication with her was easy and fast and she provided a lot of information on the wedding process. Her husband Sascha was our photographer, the perfect combination. They did their best to calm us down and help us enjoy the moment. Sascha picked picturesque spots and the photos turned out beautifully. Jackie put together a beautiful ceremony. She sent us many ideas and we also sent her our ideas. The ceremony was a good mix of the different texts. We appreciate that Jackie gave us room when we said our vows. We really enjoyed Jackie‘s company and highly recommend her and Sascha! Thank you so much!!! More...

Our ceremony was so heart-touching and emotional. We will never forget the moment and the great feelings we had! Your speech was amazing...
We had a lovely, intimate wedding with Jackie as the officiant and her husband Sascha as our photographer. Jackie clearly was able to see what we wanted and could make the whole ceremony feel very natural and unimposing. Highly recommended!
Jackie Reinking we will never forget. She was our private wedding officer in Central Park, NYC. The whole project "marriage in NYC" was perfectly prepared - with a lot of heart and empathy, experience and professionality. Jackie and we worked together in the entire preparation phase of our ceremony and we felt so much understood and supported by her. She and her husband Sascha Reinking, worldclass photograph, made our wedding in NYC to an unforgettable event which will always be in our memories! Susanne & André from Switzerland. More...
Jackie ist eine herzliche und tolle Standesbeamtin, sie hat dazu beigetragen, dass unser Tag perfekt wird!
It was so easy working with Jackie on our ceremony. She has a few questions she asked which are easy to answer to let her get a sense of who you are as a couple and what you want from your ceremony. We didn't have a lot of requirements of what we wanted from our ceremony, so we gave Jackie minimum input and yet she managed to create a ceremony that reflected who we are just as if she had know as for years. I was so impressed and moved by the ceremony she put together, it was like she was speaking straight out of our souls. Also a special mention to how naturally Jackie performs a ceremony, she makes it look so honest and amazing, not at any time did I feel like she was reciting some random text, you believe every word that comes out of her mouth. I still can't believe how well she can do that. Thanks Jackie for helping us have the ceremony we couldn't even dream of, you have made the ceremony so much more than we ever hoped for. More...
Vom ersten Kontakt bis zur Hochzeit einfach nur super. Sympathisch, locker, lustig - es stimmt einfach alles. Es war die beste Art zu heiraten. Team Reinking - you are amazing
Jackie is a very sympathetic person who organized the wedding ceremony so perfect that our wedding started right as we wished it would be :-) Thank you for that :-)
We opted to work with Jackie as we initially connected with her husband Sascha for our photos, and what a great combination ! Jackie was so easy to connect with and to work with regarding the ceremony , she really made it easy and was flexible with how we wanted to set up the content of the readings. she was super helpful in recommending accommodation, make and hair , tux rentals .. I do not know how we would have done all if this if she did not help in guiding us. We traveled from far for this day and know that we had her there to help was a great relief.
The ceremony was done in style and all our wished were respected - than you so much for being part of our day ! Jackie brings a great sense of humour to the day and makes the event even more memorable ! More...
We found Jackie through her husband, Sascha (who we hired as our photographer!). She was easy to talk to via e-mail, and so bubbly/outgoing in person! She made it feel like we've known her forever. Her personality put us at ease as we began our ceremony. In preparing our ceremony, Jackie gave us plenty of options and suggestions; she took everything we wanted and made it even better. She put together a beautiful ceremony that fit me and my husband's relationship perfectly. Jackie went above and beyond with providing recommendations from everything to hair and makeup all the way to a restaurant to celebrate in! More...
We had the pleasure to meet Jackie, she is so a lovely person. We booked her as our officiant because of her husband Sascha ( Sascha Reinking Photography). They are the perfect wedding Team. Jackie send us some questions to answer for the ceremony and ask us for Special poem, readings or quotes. With this informations she writes for us our ceremony. Before the wedding we get a review to check and there was nothing to chance it was perfect from the first time. Jackie and also her husband Sascha helped us with all our questions. And on our wedding day we had so much fun and a wonderful ceremony at the Ladies Pavillon in Central Park. Thank you so much Jackie for everything! More...
Jackie made our wedding vows easy! We knew we didn’t want to write our own but was not sure what we wanted our ceremony to be like since it was an elopement. She had us complete a questionnaire and tailored a beautiful ceremony that felt authentic and original to us that made us feel special. We would highly recommend Jackie (and her husband Sascha - photographer) over and over again!!! They are a one stop shop and can help you with everything from the ceremony to flowers to restaurants + hotels! More...
When we decided that we just wanted to be married intimately, just the two of us, it was important that we had a ceremony which reflected who we are as a couple, keeping 'us' at it's centre. It wasn't about readings, guests and venues, it was about sharing words together and having our love held and nurtured. We were incredibly lucky to find Jackie, who was a perfect fit for us, along with her talented photographer husband, Sascha. There is something special in having your marriage initiated by a couple who reflect the love between them and simply love what they do.
As we were coming from London and didn't know anyone in New York, we were grateful to have Jackie and Sascha's suggestions; they're like wedding planners, with lots of great ideas on where to have the ceremony and where to get the best photos.
Jackie was interested in getting to know us as a couple beforehand. When she sent us a questionnaire to complete, it helped us to prepare for the magnitude of the step we were about to take. Who are we as a couple? Such a simple question but so helpful to think about together and share with Jackie. It felt like she knew us even though we met only moments before the ceremony. She was a containing pair of hands throughout and we were certainly full of nerves, exacerbated by the rain! She helped us to feel calm and didn't rush us at all. During the ceremony, we were touched by how she also gave us space when we exchanged our vows; again she got the balance right: she's both supportive and thoughtful.
When she left shortly after the ceremony, it was like saying goodbye to a friend, we felt the same, after saying goodbye to Sascha, too. Both of them were our special guests on our big day and witnesses to our marriage, so they'll always have an important place in our hearts.
If you're looking for a special personal connection from our officiant for your big day, we'd absolutely recommend Jackie! More...
When we decided to choose Jackies husband, Sascha, as our photographer we knew that Jackie should be our officiant, too. Yes, it was the perfect decision. When we got in contact we immediately were sure she will design a ceremony that we couldn't even imagine better. She was so dedicated, made so many suggestions and gave us helpful tips so we were perfectly prepared for our wedding. When we first met her it was like we found a lost friend. Warm-hearted, caring and full of joy, she made us forget our nervosity. The ceremony itself exceeded all our expectations, it was so emotional that some tears ran down our faces. We had so much fan with Jackie, noone else could have give us such a perfect experience. Jackie, thank you so much! More...
wonderful, perfect, better than expected, easy preparation, perfect ceremony
Jackie is honestly the friendliest, kindest, most amazing officiant with such a bubbly personality. She made the whole process of planning overseas so easy and was a brilliant support for us in making our dreams come true. She performed an absolutely beautiful personal ceremony which we will treasure forever! We first met Jackie in person on our wedding day and it was like meeting a close friends. She honestly has the biggest heart!
I cannot recommend Jackie enough! I would without a doubt put my full trust in her and guaranteed you will have the wedding of a lifetime. More...
Hiring Jackie as our officiant (and her husband Sascha as our photographer) was absolutely the best call we made for our April wedding! In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Jackie provided us with tons of guidance and inspiration to help us create a ceremony that was perfectly tailored to us as a couple. She answered our questions and provided us with different examples of ceremony readings so that we could create a beautifully personalized ceremony. In the week leading up to our ceremony, the weather was looking like it would NOT cooperate with our planned Central Park ceremony. I was freaking out, of course, but Jackie (and Sascha) both were so positive, assuring me that whatever the weather decided to do the day would be beautiful regardless- and it was!
About 5 minutes before our ceremony was to begin, Jackie asked us who would be reading our vows first and-of course- we had not even thought about that detail! My husband and I decided on the matter by playing rock, paper scissors and Jackie filmed the moment for us! It was one of my favorite images from the day- a very "us" moment that Jackie so kindly captured for us.
For anyone eloping to NYC, I highly recommend Jackie (and Sascha) for your day. You simply can't go wrong with #teamreinking More...
Jackie found so wonderful, beautiful and lovely words for our wedding ceremony. Words which one suits to us as couple.
She is very friendly, welcoming, funny and nice. From the first moment we felt good :) More...
Jackie , along with her husband Sascha, who was our photographer, made our day truly fabulous. She is a warm and lovely lady who from the first email put us at ease and guided us through the whole process. From a brief outline from us and a few questions she was able to write an amazing, personal service for our ceremony that really captured who we are and what we wanted. The service was beautiful, we put so at ease by Jackie that there were no nerves and we enjoyed it so much. We can't thank Jackie and her amazing photographer Sascha enough, amazing , professional, reliable, kind and fun! We wouldn't have changed a thing. More...
we had an unforgetable and really special wedding day!!!! thanks a lot to Jackie & Sascha ❤
Thanks to Sascha and Jackie, the wedding experience they provided was perfect and unforgettable. They are an amazing team.
Team Reinking have got to be the nicest people on earth!! Jackie was just absolutely amazing from start to finish. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had and the ceremony was so unique and special to us. She really made our day that extra bit special. I can not recommend Jackie enough!! She is absolutely amazing! Thank you again ❤️ More...
Jackie created a beautiful ceremony for us. I could not stop crying because of how touched I was by her words. She is extremely talented at making you cry at your ceremony. She responded very quick to my emails and even helped me on my wedding day. There was a minor crisis at the ceremony and she communicated with me the entire time. Our wedding was so special because she made it special. Please don't think twice about booking her! We love Team Reinking!! Oh if you haven't seen her husband Sascha's work please do! He is an amazing photographer! More...
From first contact, Jackie combines the perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness. She listened to our preferences and helped design the perfect ceremony for us on the High Line. From a practical perspective, she gave us plenty of great suggestions (flowers, hair styling etc.), which made things easier for us.
On the day, Jackie and her husband put us immediately at ease. As we walked to the ceremony location, we chatted together freely as if we'd known them for years. The ceremony itself was relaxed and fun, just as we'd hoped. She really understood what we wanted, and delivered perfectly on the day. Based on the other reviews I've seen, she is reliable and delivers consistently, not just for us.
I've already recommended Jackie to a couple of people who are thinking of getting married in NYC, and will continue to do so. More...
When our plans at City Hall fell apart due to a computer system malfunction, Jackie stepped in and literally saved our day.
Thankfully our photographer just so happened to be Jackie’s husband, and we ended up being married by the most perfect officiant. For a last minute ceremony, it was surprisingly personal, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way.
Having returned to Australia, my wife and I have repeatedly discussed the fact that we should have booked her in the first place.
Thanks again Jackie for the fabulous memories. More...
We are over the moon with the service we received from Jackie - from initial contact to meeting her on our wedding day. She made us feel so at ease and our ceremony was beyond anything we could have hoped for & delivered so beautifully. We didn't change anything from the initial ceremony draft Jackie sent to us because she so eloquently covered everything we wanted to say and more.
Our wedding day surpassed our expectations and we wouldn’t have done a single thing differently!
We would highly recommend Jackie, and Sascha her husband as photographer! #teamreinking More...
Was an absolute pleasure to have Jackie as our Officiant in New York. Jackie was a huge help and support in the run up to our wedding, giving us lots of hints and tips to make our day perfect. Great recommendation for Silver Star wedding limos who were fab ! Our wedding ceremony was so personal, just perfect in every way.....Jackie made us feel really relaxed and as though we’d known her for years. If you’re thinking of hiring Jackie then don’t delay - it’ll be a decision you won’t regret ! Thank you for everything Jackie - you helped us have the perfect New York wedding, Elaine & Fraser xxx More...
When we eloped from Florida to NYC I wasn't sure exactly how the 'actual wedding' part of eloping would play out, and for us, we were only in NYC for 4 days so hiring an officiant just made sense. Boy are we blessed to have Jackie officiate our ceremony! She took the time to get to know us, help us write some personal, detailed vows. Not only did she make it personal and touching, she kept it light and so intimate....it was like she had known us forever. She is so personable and a beautiful soul who strives to make this the best experience EVER. We cannot say enough amazing things about Jackie. More...
Jackie is the sweetest woman ever. Couldn’t have been happier with what she wrote for our ceremony!
From our first contact with Jackie we knew she was perfect for us.. Jackie was so full sincere delight for us straight off and could not have helped us more, Jackies ceremony for us was just perfect, (and getting printed and framed) like as if she had known us for years.. gave us options and recommendations and made it so easy for us.. We were instantly put at ease when we met Jackie for the first time on our wedding day... she was such a big part of our special day and we will never forget her kindness, smile and hugs :) More...
Jackie made the whole process feel so natural and we cannot thank her enough. As we came over from the UK everything is a bit of a gamble as you don't actually meet the people you book until the actual time, but if your thinking of getting married in New York, Jackie is the person for you. Great communication and advice and a pleasure to meet and become friends. The advice she gave us and the assistance in getting prepared is second to none and I would recommend her to anyone. More...
Jackie was an absolute dream. From first point of contact she gave me names of other vendors such as flowers, hair and make up, cake, car hire and places to elope. I was blown away as I had no idea where to start, coming all the way from Australia. I hired Jackie and Sascha as a team and couldnt recommend them highly enough! Jackie made our day run as smoothly as could be, we had an overload of extra guests and some well dressed passers by, let's just say it was full of laughs all around and I couldnt have asked for someone more fitting to my sense of humor it made the day so much better having a laugh and taking away from the serious side when needed! Thankyou Jackie for a great day, I couldnt have picked someone more perfect if I tried!! More...
What can we say about Jackie? She crafted the most beautiful ceremony for us and the words she chose were perfect for us first time.
She included, at our request, fun personal quotes in our ceremomy too and made time to remind us to take it all in and reflect on our day. This was a lovely touch as it can all fly by so fast!
We felt very relaxed throughout as Jackie just makes you feel that way from the very first second you meet her - our day was perfect! More...
Thank you so much for making our Wedding day special and truly perfect! Our ceremony with you in Central Park (Ladies Pavilion) was absolutely amazing and so so perfect for us!
You were incredibly caring when preparing for the ceremony, really interested in Stephen and me as a couple and individuals so that you could get to know us as much as it is possible over the internet. Having the ceremony with you in Central Park, it felt like we had known each other for years and you made the moment so very special, intimate and memorable - I am still speechless! Both Stephen and I are really happy that we chose to get married by yourself and had your lovely husband Sascha as our witness and photographer. You both are just amazing and a great couple!
Thank you so much lovely Jackie!
All the best,
Svenja & Stephen xx More...
We were so fortunate to have Jackie as our officiant. She took the time to get to know us before she wrote our vows, and went the extra mile to help suggest vendors in the area as well. Her warmth and friendliness also helped us stay calm on our big day. I would recommend Jackie to anyone looking for a special, heart felt ceremony. More...
I just want to say a massive thank you to the most lovely lady we have had the pleasure of working with. We got married in secret in NYC and we booked Jackie and her lovely photographer hubby Sascha. From the moment we seen their web page we knew straight away, it was our first result and first page we seen and we booked Jackie the same afternoon. I have to say getting married without family is tough but it was what we wanted. But Jackie you were incredible prior and on the day, thank you for making us feel so special. You were so kind and caring and kept my nerves at bay. Jackie helped us write our ceremony and it was just perfect. I think it is hard to explain in words how much our day was so special and i don't think it would have been so without Jackie and her husband. They met us and walked to Wagner cove with us, any questions we had were answered, and i mean ANY questions. Jackie you went above and beyond for us! It is so clear to see you love your job, you made our ceremony (non religious) so sentimental and gave us all the help we could possibly need. We felt so comfortable communicating and it was always so efficient and prompt. When we met you, immediately we felt comfortable and just the way you spoke to us made us less nervous was incredible. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. lots and lots of love"
If you need someone caring, and who really loves what she does for a living, book this amazing lady! And her award winning photographer husband because they are incredible. More...
Tony & Grant
We are truly blessed & forever grateful that we selected you as our officiant. You went out of your way to make our wedding day special, truly one to remember. The service was fun, beautiful and more than what we expected! You helped us achieve this.
There is a saying we know which is ...."Some people may forget what you did, some people may even forget what you said but people will never forget how you made them feel". You went above & beyond & made us feel so special on our day. You made us feel so welcomed & cared for from the start.
A very big thank you Jackie. Your work is truly amazing ! Our ceremony will remain forever memorable in our hearts. More...
Auf der Suche nach Möglichkeiten zur Hochzeit in New York, stieß ich sehr schnell auf Team Reinking. Da wir uns relativ spontan entschieden hatten, rechnete ich nicht mehr damit, noch in diesem Jahr einen freien Termin zu bekommen. ABER: Sascha und Jackie zeigten sich absolut flexibel. Selbst als wir aufgrund von Problemen bei der Urlaubsplanung noch mal umdisponieren mussten. Die Vorbereitung war absolut professionell und sehr individuell. Genau so wie der Tag der Hochzeit selbst. Jackie und Sascha gingen komplett auf uns ein und bereiteten uns so einen unvergesslichen Tag. Ich hatte vor der Hochzeit meine Bedenken, ob eine Hochzeit ganz allein in New York, fern ab von einer großen Gästeschar das richtige ist. Heute kann ich sagen: Absolut! Und das auch Dank Sascha und Jackie. More...
Jackie has such a beautiful soul!!! Through the planning via email she was very thoughtful and she put together a beautiful ceremony. I was late to my own ceremony, but Jackie has such a positive and calm aura and just makes you feel comfortable. Couldn’t have asked for anyone better to announce us husband and Wife. Don’t think twice! Book her! You won’t regret it! You can feel that this is what she is passionate about: love, romance, emotions. You have no choice but falling in love with her!
She and her husband Sascha who was our photographer helped us finding a florist and a stylist which made life so much easier for us. More...
There are not enough words to accurately express how much we LOVED working with Jackie. From the very beginning, she wanted to know our story and really worked with us to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted.
I have to admit we didn't know where we were supposed to start but she made the process so easy. She had the greatest recommendations for passages. It was almost like she could read what our minds and hearts were trying to say but didn't know how to say it. It really was beautiful. Even now two weeks after the ceremony, we have received so many compliments of just how great she was.
The moments leading up to our ceremony were hectic.. I mean I, the bride, was stuck in NYC traffic and had to run to the ceremony but Jackie made sure that everything ran smooth. She made sure that at that moment us making this commitment in front of our families and friends was all that mattered. She took away all stress and made it perfection! It really was a perfect day and perfect ceremony and I believe that is because Jackie was our officiant. She cared and you could really tell just how much she loves her brides and grooms. If we could do it all over again we would and we would totally work with Jackie.
Side note: The picture I uploaded is from Sascha Reinking Photography... Oh my goodness, he is as equally amazing! More...
She is the best - Jackie made the wedding day perfect. She is such a loving and warm person.
We had so much fun and we just felt comfortable all the time. You won't find a better officiant for your special day. More...
Jackie is amazing. always on hand my email and so kind and reassuring she was like my councillor! our ceremony was beautiful and exactly what we wanted.
Jackie is the ideal love ambassador. Before we eloped, we were charmed by her magical ceremony script. During, we were the beneficiaries of her warmth and charisma. Afterwards, we felt as though her presence alone (and the work of her husband, photographer Sascha Reinking) offered an auspicious start to our married life. My husband and I can't imagine having married without her. More...
What can I say about these 2 that hasn’t already been said a million times over, they are simply amazing people. The knowledge they have and tips they have for people is simply amazing. From the first emails to FaceTime and to meeting has been the easiest experience and we couldn’t have done any of it without there help. We really can not thank them enough for all there help every last detail taken care of. Love you guys to bits. They make every wedding they do magical and it’s been a pleasure to meet them and have them in our special day. No star rating is ever going to be enough More...
Jackie was amazing on our wedding day! She was a calming force as my wife was not feeling well the day of our wedding. Jackie was able to make the most of our ceremony and made my wife feel as comfortable as possible during it. We were so happy to spend our special day with Jackie and Sascha! More...
Everything was perfectly organized and we felt very well. We absolutely recommend #TeamReinking. Thank you very much !!
Jackie was amazing! Couldn't recommend her enough. She offered advice and guidance from the start, recommending vendors, restaurants, stylists etc.
We were worried about the ceremony being too formal or 'loved up' as we really wanted to keep it simple...Jackie completely understood this and helped to make the ceremony perfect but suggesting readings and changing wording to suit.
The day went perfectly and I would not hesitate to recommend Jackie (or her husband Sascha/our Photographer) she was just so lovely and put us at ease straight from the start. More...
#teamreinking are a top team, professional and courteous, they offer and deliver a bespoke service to make your day very special.
Nils & Nicole
Although we never met before, Jackie managed to provide us with a wedding ceremony, which picked up with our story, added some own flavour and thoughts and left the needed room to make it our own and personal wedding. We would book her again!
Jackie is a such a warm and friendly person. She personalised our ceremony exactly the way we wanted it. Couldn’t have asked for a better officiant for our special day. Highly recommend!
Jackie along with her husband as photographer are a superb tag team and we can highly recommend their services. Specifically to Jackie for this review, from start to finish she offered great advice on the ceremony, preparations and all its finest details. So adaptable and happy to cater to any need you may have big or small for your big day. Just ask! Thank you Jackie! More...
Jackie was an absolute joy to work with. She was so communicative, answered all our questions, and took an avid interest in getting to know us in order to personalize the ceremony. She made things so easy for us the day of our elopement and we couldn't have picked a nicer/more helpful officiant. Highly recommend! More...
Kim and Jean
Jackie was simply amazing! Extremely helpful every step of the way. She was friendly, caring and you can tell she loves what she does! The words she wrote for our ceremony were as if she knew us forever! I loved it and will always have the best memories from it! I highly recommend her and would do it all over again with her right there beside us!!! More...
Jackie has ability the make you feel truely special, tailormade speech and attention to what is important to her customers
Jackie’s knowledge of what is required for overseas marriages (British citizens) saved us a load of stress. It wasn’t overly clear on our governments website. Jackie knee what we needed exactly. The service was wonderful Jackie personalised it very well and we had the perfect spot for the service. We had a fantastic day made better by Jackie. More...
We were extremely satisfied with Jackie!
She wanted to know us better and drafted a speech totally tailored to us. The result was an unforgettable ceremony and everything was perfect!
She was really responsive to our requests and flexible. Besides she helped us with all the fulfillment to get married in New York and after to have it recognized in Italy. More...
Jackies words were wonderfull and moved us to tears. We were so happy to have chosen her for our special day. The communication beforehand was great, she patiently took into account our wishes and feedback, reworked the speech over and over. The result: a wonderful ceremony we will never forget :) More...
Jackie’s warmth and love ensured our ceremony was perfect. From the moment we started communicating with her, Jackie was very attentive and able to answer any questions we had, however random they were! She was also great in recommending a reputable car service and florist. Jackie took all of the stress away in the planning stages and ensured this continued right through to the day. Jackie really felt like she was a close member of the family which really helped bring a sense of familiarity to the ceremony. We could not recommend her any higher. More...
We found Jackie via Sascha's website and booked a great team. Jackie put together a service that was tailor made for us and really took into account what we liked and wanted. We recorded the ceremony and everyone we've shown it to was touched at the words chosen.
We decided to change the time of the service the day before due to incoming bad weather and Jackie was very flexible. During all the times we contacted Jackie and on the day itself it was more like chatting to a friend rather than someone you've hired to help you.
If you're thinking of getting married in NYC (and why wouldn't you!) then the team of Jackie and Sascha are second to none. Even if you just need an officiant then Jackie is the person you need. More...
We went with Jackie and Sascha for our September elopement in NYC, and we can’t recommend them enough! From the time I emailed them asking about their services to the day of the ceremony Jackie was totally available and kept in communication with me frequently. Our ceremony was just beautiful and really fit us as a couple. Jackie makes sure she includes the things that matter most to you! She is warm and personable and made us feel so comfortable on our wedding day. We actually had to change the day of the ceremony because of bad weather and Jackie and Sascha were so accommodating and made a stressful situation much easier to deal with. If I had to do it all over again I would book Jackie again in a heartbeat!! More...
Jackie was the perfect person to help us create an unforgettable wedding day. From catching up with us for coffee before we even booked her, to bringing all the paperwork and information we could possibly need, she held our hand and guided us every step of the way. We couldn't have done it without her. More...
It was incredible to see how well Jackie put together our ceremony without meeting her. She did incredibly well, and I highly recommend her services. She was Sincere, professional, and just plan friend to deal with. More...
I cannot recommend Jackie highly enough. From initial discussions from across the sea, to meeting on the day in the big Apple Jackie made the whole process as flawless as can be. Her fabulous energy made everyone feel at home in the middle of the biggest city in the world. Both her and Sascha Reinking photography are a dream team! More...
Absolutely loved getting married in NYC and Jackie made that happen providing all what is needed to do so. Thank you for what you do!!
From day one, Jackie is a joy to work with. Patient, warm, understanding, and experienced are some of the best ways to describe Jackie. Neither of us knew the first thing about putting together a ceremony, especially for an LGBT union, but Jackie got us off to a fantastic start with dozens of ideas and resources for what we could say and how to structure everything. With her expert guidance, we created a ceremony that reflected the nuances of our personalities and showed the best of our relationship to each other and to our friends and family. Our guests at the ceremony described it as "intimate," "unique," and "beautiful," due to the way that Jackie made everyone an integral part of the celebration. From the beginning to the end, Jackie exuded calm and was a wonderful anchor on which we could rely.
Thank you so, so much for making our ceremony one that we, our friends and our loved ones will cherish. More...
we booked jackie as our wedding officiant in central park, ladies pavillon together with sascha reinking as the photographer.
You can book them together as a team and hands down: it's the best you can do for your wedding in new york (or elsewhere) because they offer such a nice, professional service and it's always a great time to have them around you. they can take care of so many things and really want you and your wedding company to enjoy that very special day. If getting married would be something you can do every weekend we would do that with jackie and sascha again and again. Unforgettable memories! :) Thank you! More...
We hired Jackie for our wedding in Central Park in April and we're so happy we did! We chose Jackie's husband Sascha as our photographer and they worked together with us so efficiently - definitely take a look at Sascha's work if you're looking for a photographer! Jackie wrote us the most beautiful ceremony with most of our guests shedding a tear! She was very helpful before the ceremony too, helping the boys put up some fabric at Cop Cot whilst helping to keep Paul calm & free from nerves! Thank you Jackie! More...
Why get married at city hall when you can spend just a bit and create a beautiful, personalized ceremony to be held at the location of your choice?! We hired Jackie, along with her husband Sascha, for our special day. And it was truly special! Do yourself a favor and work with this lovely lady - she provides lots of guidance and advice and was happy to take the lead in certain areas (since we weren't the type to write long, poetic vows). We loved everything about our wedding in Central Park! More...
We are so grateful to have come across Jackie to help make our day perfect. The ceremony she put together for us was just beautiful. The communication was great and any questions, she was there to help. I want to litter our house with the beautiful quotes she used to remind us of our perfect day Such a lovely lady! More...
We booked Jackie together with her talented husband Sascha to take our photographs. Well, what can we say that also she was a perfect match to us. As fun and loving each of their clients she also make us feel special and gave us a perfect fitted ceremony at the Top of the Rock. The communication beforehand was as easy as it could be and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Thank you Jackie so much for making our day as special as it ever could have been. More...
The sweetest, nicest and kindest hugger your will ever encounter. Although we requested Jackies services 48 hrs before the wedding day, ceremony speech was very emotional and poetic. It touched all the sweet spots and helped us with our personal wows. Jackie and her husband Sascha really made our day very special and unique. More...
Look no further!!! Jackie is the best wedding officiant out there NYC! She replied quickly to e-mails and created a unique ceremony that fit us perfectly. On our actual wedding day, she made us feel comfortable and relaxed because she was so organized, confident and in-control of everything officiant-related. More...
We decided to use Jackie as a part of #TeamReinking and what a great decision it was because we couldn't now imagine our day without her. We eloped from the UK and therefore all communications were made over email, however instantly we felt comfortable with the friendliness, professional and prompt replies we received to our numerous queries.
She made all efforts to make the ceremony personal and created a wonderful speech that made the day even more special. On the day itself, she eased both of our nerves and made the created a fantastic atmosphere to make us both feel comfortable in her presence.
Thank you More...
Jackie Reinking is a heartwarming and empathic person and that is how she arranged our whole wedding ceremony: Full of lovely words, romantic phrases and individual storys from our lives. I can totally recommend her as a wedding officiant, because she did her work with passion that everybody felt on this special day. More...
We booked Jackie Reinking as our officiant and her husband Sascha (as our photographer) for our wedding in New York and it was the best choice we could have made.
Jackie kept in touch with us from our first plans to the day of our wedding and because of that constant contact she created such a wonderful, personal and unique ceremony for us. Whenever we had questions she answered them quickly. We would always go with Jackie again. More...
Jackie came highly recommended to us by our photographer - her husband Sascha! It seemed to special to me to have a lovely couple conduct the two most important parts of our wedding day and we emailed back and forth for nearly 18 months planning every detail. Jackie wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us and incorporated all the details I had added. Meeting her on our wedding day was like meeting up with a friend and we will treasure the memory of her words and the moment forever. Do not hesitate to book Jackie if you are looking to get married in New York because you won't find anyone more perfect for the job. More...
It’s safe to say that the stresses on your wedding day can be quite overbearing. However with Jackie and Sascha all of our stress simply melted away. From the start we knew we were in great hands.
Jackie’s presence during the ceremony was comforting as she not only conducted a very personal wedding with grace but commanded all attention to where it belonged... on us. She reinforced our notion that it was our day and it was ok to do it “our way.”
Sascha is a wonderful photographer as we got all the shots we wanted AND MORE. He was able to capture both the big moments as well as those small details that would have been missed had he’d not been there. Most importantly, Sascha turned what is seemingly an unforgettable time during one’s wedding day into a cherished time together.
We couldn’t possibly thank Jackie and Sascha enough for help making our wedding the happiest day of our lives. More...
Great communication up to and during the wedding. She made sure our ceremony was a personalized experience. I would recommend Jackie's work to anyone planning a wedding.
Jackie was central in making our wedding day a day to remember. Her friendliness and professionalism made her a joy to work with. We knew from our first interaction that Jackie was the person we wanted to marry us - warm, relaxed yet focused and somehow she seemed to just 'get us.' We loved the collaborative approach to putting the ceremony together. It was so unique and so us, simply perfect. We would happily recommend Jackie as an officiant. We might even have to plan a renewal of our vows just to use her services again! More...
Deciding to go with Jackie as our photographer was the best decision we made for our wedding. By choosing Jackie you are not only choosing your photographer but a team that will help you through all the technicalities of the wedding. For a small elopement from abroad like ours this has been game-changing. Help with the paperwork, photographer, flowers, makeup and central park permit are some examples where Jackie insight has been a lifesaver!
Oh, and the ceremony was lovely! She just has that confidence to put everyone at ease at that moment which can be stressful for some people! If you want a hassle-free wedding Jackie is the officiant you need! More...
Rico and Emilia
Sascha and his wife Jackie are the greatest. They helped us to organize and have the wedding we‘ve always been dreaming of.
Jackie is such a lovely person! We had a great wedding day with Jackie and her husband Sascha (our photographer). She planned the ceremony together with us and asked us to tell her something about our relationship, hobbies, etc. Because of that we had a very personal ceremony with a beautiful speech. Thank you so much Jackie!! More...
Dear Jackie, thank you so much for the lovely ceremony! We enjoyed every moment of it and will always remember this wonderful day!
Booking Jackie was one of the best decisions we made for our elopement wedding in New York. From the 1st email the whole process was completely stress free and the vows she wrote for us were as though she had known us both for years. Alongside her husband Sascha who did the amazing photos they make the dream team. We can't recommend them highly enough. More...
I thought that trying to organise an elopement wedding in a foreign country would be beyond stressful, but I hadn't factored in picking Jackie Reinking as my officiant.
From the first email she was the most helpful, knowledgeable and fun person and took any stress right away.
She's super professional and points you in the right direction for what forms are needed and when you need to complete them.
She managed to write the most beautiful service, that completely summed us up as a couple and it was as though we had known her for years not just through email conversations that had happened over a few months.
She is just a lovely happy person, who clearly loves her job and is fabulous at it.
Picking Jackie will he the best decision you make if you need an officiant, I couldn't have been happier she is just fabulous.
Andrea Watt More...
We cannot recommend Jackie enough. She was fabulous. Made us feel so relaxed loved through the whole process. As we eloped we had no family with us, we used both Jackie and her husband Sascha (photographer - amazing). They worked as a team to make our special day full of love, laughter and made it something truly special. More...
Dear Jackie, Thank you so much for making our wedding day to one of the most amazing days in our life. Hugs from Berlin
Sascha is a great photographer, He made my wife and I feel very comfortable and gave us great directions and advice. Would highly recommend.
We booked Jackie through her husband Sascha as a package. It was the best decision we made! Jackie was absolutely amazing. She was prompt in answering all the questions i had emailed her and was always happy to help in providing suggestions on where to have a spray tan, mani and pedi etc.
Paul and i traveled from Australia to get married in NYC. Planning a wedding is stressful enough let alone in a different country. But Jackie eased the whole process! Even when we had to change the date because our dream venue was unavailable. The ceremony she had written for us was better than i ever expected. She tailored it to us, even with including a quote from our favorite television show F.R.I.E.N.D.S (she happened to pick a quote from my favorite episode too!) If you are looking for an amazing officiant BOOK HER NOW you wont regret it! Thank you Jackie for everything, Paul and i will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives. More...
We've got married with Jackie and her husband Sascha. Everything was perfect and so easy. Jackie is such a lovely person and we felt comfortable with her from the first second we met her. She had the right words for us and our ceremony and we're so happy, that we have chosen her for our wedding More...
Beautifull ceremony, handles (almost) all the paperwork, realy good communication.
"Wasn't it weird using an officiant that you didn't meet until the ceremony?"
Not with Jackie doing the wedding. Very professional and very flexible. Her ceremony was right on point for us after one brief phone conversation. I have preformed dozens of weddings myself over many years, and I was able to get several ideas from Jackie. Thanks to Jackie, our day was perfect! More...
Jackie was everything we needed in an officiant. She is professional, thoughtful, and passionate about what she does. She took great care to guarantee that our ceremony was exactly as we envisioned it. It was a glorious day - and I could not have been happier with Jackie’s role in making our day so very special. More...
It was an absolute pleasure working with Sascha and Jackie. They are both so friendly, super helpful, organized and super talented.
Sascha and Jackie was in contact with us every step of the way on our planning - we were so clueless, nervous and stressed about everything and they made us feel relaxed and give us the reassurance we need.
We had a great experience from start to finish and the results were truly fantastic!
Our ceremony was beautiful and we received numerous compliments from our guest on how amazing and perfect it was done.
Sascha captured our day so perfectly with his camera and Jackie made us laugh and even bought tears to our eyes with her powerful and touching words.
They truly captured the magic and essence of our day!
We recommend this amazing super team to anyone who is looking for a photographer/officiant. You will not be disappointed and you will have no regrets!
Jeffery and Niki Johnson More...
Both Jackie Reinking and her husband Sacha were amazing! They really seem to enjoy being part of our very special day. I know that they do these types of events everyday and as a job but they definitely were great people to share your special moment with. They made everything fun
Truly amazing team, both were very attentive and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Honestly, our day was made even more special because they both were part of our special day! Thank you so much Jackie and Sascha, I’m truly grateful x x x More...
Jackie was brilliant, she made the progress clear and easy. Very professional and also very helpful in all aspects. Lots of our guests commented on how lovely and personal our ceremony was.
Our wedding day was unforgettable!
Jackie and Sascha Reinking have the biggest share in it!
Jackie was our officiant and did a wonderful job! She is a warm person with a big heart. We forgot the whole excitement before the wedding. The ceremony was individual, beautiful and perfectly prepared.
Jackie was always available and gave us good tips in advance, so that the wedding was well planned even from Germany. More...
Die Trauungszeremonie mit Jackie war etwas ganz besonderes für uns. Sie hat eine so offene und herzliche Art, die jede Aufregung verschwinden lässt! Die Vorbereitung mit Jackie war hervorragend und die Tipps und Tricks für uns aus Deutschland eine große Hilfe. Die Hochzeit mit Team Reinking war einfach wunderschön und unvergesslich! More...
We found Jackie's information on Sascha's website. She is a very nice person to work with. She really took time to know us and our stories by asking good questions. She was very responsive to my emails and provided great wedding materials for me to refer to. No matter I wanted to have some suggestions on my vows or update the ceremony script, she was always there helping me out. Jackie did care how I felt during wedding planing. She was able to sense that I was little stressed out and helped me to calm down. She and her husband, Sascha, are punctual and have great communication skills. I highly recommend Jackie to be your wedding officiant. She really turned a stressful wedding planning into a smooth and enjoyable process. More...
Beautiful woman inside and out! She provided the most beautiful ceremony but had me laughing as well. I couldn’t of chosen another person so perfect for our day. I love her and Sascha!!!!!
Jackie made the process so easy leading up to the BIG day - She was able to answer any question and made us feel very comfortable with everything. Made the ceremony very personal and didn’t even mind s bit of rain!!!!! Thank You! More...
With Jackie's help, we executed a perfect elopement. Jackie is a wealth of information and a true professional. Our wedding ceremony was amazing! We would highly recommend Jackie as an officiant. More...
She was marvelous! Very sweet and put a lot of time into everything she did. She even gave me outlines to writing my vows. She was so helpful and so thoughtful. She made us feel like family. Without them our wedding wouldn’t have been nearly as wonderful. Talk about a power couple!! More...
We eloped to New York City from Brisbane, Australia and wanted our change of the seasons March 1st wedding day to be a special and exceptionally memorable one. We had a wonderful wedding day thanks to the husband and wife team of Sascha, our photographer and Jackie, our officiant/celebrant. We contacted Jackie only 72 hours before our wedding day in the Big Apple. She was superbly responsive in her communique with us. And was able to accommodate us, with only 12 hours notice, when we requested an 8:30am ceremony instead of it being at 4:00pm. This would ensure our big day would still fall on the 1st March back in Australia. Even with the short notice we provided Jackie to bring together a wonderful and meaningful ceremony, she was able to offer us literary material to peruse to ensure we were involved in the creation of our wedding ceremony and vows. On the day itself, Jackie enhanced the calmness that we were both experiencing and present a truly beautiful ceremony we will cherish for the rest of our days. Thanks to you Jackie, for expressing the essence of our love through the spoken word. More...
We are so happy we chose Jackie to be our celebrant for our NYC Elopement in Central Park. We were travelling from Australia for our special day but the distance was no barrier to organizing all the details with Jackie. She responded to emails quickly (Given the 15 hour time difference) and was very informative and helpful in the lead up to our Wedding Day.
We were able to create a ceremony that was tailored to suit what we wanted and reflected our beliefs and personalities. It was personalised to suit us and Jackie was more than willing to assist us with any of the vows or special touches in the ceremony as well as answer any questions we had before we got to the big day.
On our day she was friendly yet professional. She made us feel relaxed and helped us to take in the moment and enjoy it.
We are more than thrilled with our ceremony and the location we choose with her guidance (Gapstow Bridge in Central Park) and are so glad we had someone as genuinely lovely as Jackie to officiate.
Payment for her services was an easy process and worth every cent, yet not over priced.
If you are looking for an excellent, warm and friendly, professional celebrant, look no further. You just found her :-) More...
I am so happy that husband has chosen Jackie as our officant! The days before the weeding she was available to go through the emotional stuff with me and there was no problem at all to choose the location just the day before the wedding. It was like being with a friend you already know for years. More...
Jackie had helped us with many questions during the 8 months prior to our wedding date.
being from the UK, i was skeptical using a service i did not quite understand as this would also be the first time getting married.
Jackie was patient and friendly, who had helped us from beginning to end.
i could not recommend her services highly enough.
if you are looking for someone down to earth and easy going, look no further. More...
Jackie and Sascha, Thank you both so much for being an integral part of our wedding. will not forget, and hope to see you both again. Thank you for making our day extra special. More...
I knew from our first email exchange i wanted Jackie to marry me and my partner and i felt like i was talking to my best friend. Jackie is incredibly kind, thoughtful and proffesional and so easy to talk too about anything. The wedding cermony was beautiful, she helped us write pieces for each other and even picked out a poem she thought suited us ( it did it was perfect). She made it so intimate and wonderful and helped me every step of the way! I already miss her and cant wait too see her again! More...
Jackie was phenomenal! The amount of time and effort she puts into writing vows is honestly incredible. I could never have imagined such thoughtful words that fits my now husband and I so well. We are very simple people and are not too involved with the "lovey dovey" stuff, and she knew exactly what to say. Despite the fact that we reached out just less than 2 weeks before our elopement ceremony, she provided suggestions, as well as a draft to ensure we were happy with her work. She has a great sense of humor and is easy to work with, and she definitely did not make it feel like we were rushing, or that she was being rushed either. She was very responsive over e-mail, eager to hear back and continuously checked in on us. Jackie reflects such passion for her work and care for her clients that she has never even met, therefore you feel like you've known her forever! Her demeanor is truly one of a kind, and we were so fortunate to work with her. More...
I am so glad we chose Jackie as our officiant. I read her write up on the internet and she was every bit as lovely, friendly and helpful as she sounded. Her help and advice and recommendations were very much appreciated when we were organising everything from the UK. Jackie wrote our words and vows for us and they were beautiful, she made it a very happy, relaxed and memorable ceremony, it couldn't have been more perfect. It was ideal to have such a lovely husband and wife team with Jackies husband Sascha as our photographer. More...
The best officiant in NYC, she has all the hook ups for everything a couple would need to get married in New York! From florist (I left my bouquet in the hotel room :o( ), hair/makeup, bakery, dinner, etc... Jackie is so beautiful and amazingly kind and froze her buns off for us, I will be forever grateful for her patience! I am so very happy that she is the one who sealed our commitment! Thank you Jackie!!! You are The Best More...
Our vows were absolutely beautiful - Jackie really made these extra special for us.
Lovely person to have around on the day as well - very warm and welcoming.
Would 100% recommend :)
After searching for several officiants in NY, we decided to go with Jackie because she radiated a sense of comfort. She stood out to us since she's done LGBT weddings in the past and we wanted someone who would make us feel comfortable. She was very attentive and always had great suggestions/answers for every question we had. She has a high level of professionalism but most importantly she has the touch to make your wedding be the wedding YOU want it to be. More...
My fiancé (now wife) & I booked Sascha & Jackie at short notice from Australia to look after our small ceremony & photos in Central Park NY. Initially the thought was daunting; booking services like this from another country. They both communicated through the whole process, we spoke when we arrived in the US, and met us with professionalism and a smile on our big day. It will always be a special moment for us in our life and the photos definitely do the day justice. Thank you Jackie & Sacha. More...
Jackie is one of the most warmest and friendliest people we have ever met. We were a little nervous on the morning of our wedding and Jackie put us at ease straight away embracing us in a big hug. Throughout the process Jackie offered us advice and made us feel included in planning what would be included in the ceremony. She has a great sense of humour and wrote beautiful words for our ceremony. She is amazing at what she does! and will always have special place in our heart. Claire and Will UK More...
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. More...
Thanks to Jackie for the wonderful ceremony of our wedding. She found the right words and we had a great day.
Wonderful officiant who wrote the most thoughtful ceremony for us and made our special day in New York even more special! She took lots of time with and for us, made us feel very valued and at ease. She was flexible even though we managed to show up late to our own wedding and we are very grateful for that! Thank you! More...
Very lovely person with an awesome personally ceremony in a relaxed atmosphere.
Jackie is the kind of person that makes you feel like you’ve known each other forever. She did an amazing job getting back to us and setting up an amazing ceremony! She’s very clear on her direction and we loved that she put the emphasis & attention solely on us. If you’re searching for someone who will calm your nerves and make you feel like your right at home (even if it’s at the Top of the Rock) then search no longer because she is the answer! We absolutely love Jackie and all that she did for us. More...
We had an amazing day with Jackie and her husband Sasha for our wedding ceremony and pictures. Myself and now husband we're both really nervous on the morning and Jackie soon made us feel at ease before the ceremony!
Before the day Jackie was on hand via email, and able to answer all our questions, no matter how silly we through they were. Jackie was wonderful during the ceremony, her professional, friendly and calming presence made our day! Would highly recommend. More...
Jackie was absolutely incredible from start to finish. We found Jackie through her husband Sascha who is a photographer and they were an awesome team on the day.
She made us feel so calm and relaxed and the ceremony was so personal to us. We highly recommend Jackie for your big day. More...
What a lovely person Jackie is. Everything just went perfect for us.
Thank you so much for this wonderful day.
I felt when I met Jackie that I had known her all my life. What a lovely person who made our day so perfect.
We have such amazing memories and that is due to Jackie making the experience one to remember
Jackie was extremely professional and helpful as our officiant, providing us with information we needed as put of towners, to help us get married in NYC. She was also very personable and caring. Highly recommend her and her husband's services! More...
Eelke & Jorien
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! More...
Jackie was so wonderful. She gave us the exact ceremony we had hoped for—better than we hoped! She had the perfect amount of reading options (not too many to overwhelm us, not too few that we were felt stuck), and took care of everything.
Anyone who's looking to elope would be blessed to have her officiate. You'll get a wonderful, radiant experience and you won't have to wait in the cattle call of the marriage bureau downtown! More...
Jackie's ceremony surpassed our every expectation. She went above and beyond to personalise every aspect of the ceremony for us, our families, people we've known our whole lives were laughing, crying and nodding knowingly along with the whole ceremony. It was perfection. She was very responsive in all of our emails, and so helpful in her questions and suggestions.
We worked with all of Team Reinking - Jackie and her Photographer husband Sascha for our wedding, and we were in such safe hands. From the moment we first emailed them till the end of the day they took so much of the stress and worry out of planning, and asked us questions that hadn't even occurred to us, just to make sure every aspect of the day had been covered. Their extensive experience is so valuable especially to international couples planning a wedding/ elopement from abroad. More...
Brendan and Tegan
Thanks so much to Jackie for officiating our special day, and helping us organize everything we needed along the way.
The most glowing review I can give, is everyone present described the day and ceremony as "Very you", which is only possible because of the time and effort Jackie put in to understand exactly who we are and what kind of ceremony we wanted.
Jackie's support and guidance with everything from applying for a marriage license through to florist and make-up recommendations made the whole process smooth and stress free. As the groom, she did a fantastic job on the day of keeping me calm in the lead-up to the ceremony, and really helped both of us relax and focus on each other and most importantly - have fun!
The day was truly perfect, and would not have been the same without Jackie.
We would not hesitate to recommend Jackie to anyone who is looking to get married in NYC More...
Jackie is a very open hearted person. She made a great day perfect
THANKS!!! 5 of 5 STARS!!!
Jackie was simply perfect, she truly is an amazing woman. Herself and her husband Sascha were the best decision we ever made. Jackie is kind, caring, professional and is like a big sister holding your hand from the first email until the big day. Finally meeting Jackie in person was just like meeting an old friend. Eloping from Australia, Jackie made everything so easy and words can't describe how perfect our day was. I can't thank Jackie enough for her huge part it that. I wholeheartedly recommend Jackie Reinking and her amazing husband Sascha #teamreinking. You could not ask for a more amazing team. More...
Helpful and a real sunshine!!
If you are looking for an officiant in NYC, Jackie is the best choice!! My husband and I decided to elope in NYC and, thankfully, found Jackie to preform the ceremony. She really took the time to find out about us and did an incredible job of making our special day feel even more special. More...
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. More...
Jackie was so professional, sweet and made us feel so at ease. We worked with Jackie and her husband Sascha, our photographer, and could not have been happier. Thank you so much!!
We first found Jackie after an online search for weddings in New York. Coupled with her husband, Sascha (photographer) we decided that this would be the most stress free and convenient experience for our elopement. After corresponding, we decided to book both Jackie and Sascha for our wedding day and can we say it has been the most pleasurable experience of organising our day with their help.
They gave great recommendations for florists, hair and make up and even for a celebratory meal afterwards. Jackie gave us excellent advice via email on how to obtain our marriage licence from overseas making the process quick and easy and stress free.
If anyone is thinking of getting married in New York - we cannot recommend them highly enough. What a fantastic day. More...
Jackie was so incredibly easy to work with. She helped us pick that perfect ceremony and tailored it to exactly what we wanted. VERY professional and also fun and easy to deal with. Her and her husband (photographer) make a perfect team. Thank you for everything you did for us!! More...
Jackie made our wedding day so special. We felt like knowing her since years, so our ceremony was very familiar and intimate. I'm sure there's no better officiant in NYC! More...
We booked Jackie and her amazing photographer husband (aka, Team Reinking!) for our elopement ceremony and it was absolutely the best decision that we made throughout the entire planning process. We planned our wedding day from Canada, which was stressful at times, but Sascha and Jackie provided reassurance and guidance when we needed it.
Jackie sent us the ceremony draft a few days before our big day, and it was perfect right from the start. She made sure that we were well taken care of, and we both felt so comfortable with her. She incorporated some of my favorite readings and added her own special touches, and overall we couldn't have asked for a more amazing officiant.
Jackie and Sascha were such a genuine and lovely couple, and the bond between them is evident when you meet them. I cannot recommend these two enough! #TeamReinking! More...
The entire experience of trying to organise a New York elopement from Asia was made very easy thanks to Jackie's very flexible and friendly approach. She was a great help in suggesting material for our vows and on the day itself her warm and friendly personality helped to get me over some last minute nerves. It was a pleasure having her as the officiant for our wedding. Highly recommended. More...
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 do gald 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 More...
Jackie was amazing. She was very responsive before the wedding. Since we were flying from abroad to get married, we didn't know much about procedures and venues; Jackie and her photographer husband always had reassuring words and gave us lots of tips and contacts info for us to prepare the wedding with a peaceful mind. We also had the opportunity to review her text and she made changes according to our ideas and wishes. The ceremony was completely personalized and we loved it!! Despite the pouring rain on our wedding day, Jackie and Sascha kept bright smiles and were both very professional. More...
We simply could not recommend Jackie highly enough! From the very first email to Jackie and her wonderful husband Sascha, #teamreinking made everything so easy!
Organising everything from Australia we made sure to do our research and Jackie was top of our list from the start and our group Skype call with Jackie and Sascha, simply cemented our choice.
Jackie made everything feel so easy and removed any of the nerves and stresses from the whole process and the day itself!
The love that Jackie has for her role just shines through and Millie and I felt completely at ease and calm in her presence. All our friends and family commented on how lovely Jackie and Sascha were at our wedding and we could not agree more!
We couldn't be happier and would highly recommend #teamreinking to anyone planning on getting married in NYC. More...
A wonderful wedding ceremony at central park!
Reaching out to Jackie Reinking to officiate our elopement was one of the absolute best decisions my partner and I made about that day. She was always kind, responsive, and professional in her emails. We were so nervous before speaking to her about doing an elopement in central park and she immediately eased all of our concerns and comforted us. If you search for Jackie you will see how high in demand her officiant services are in the New York area, and still she absolutely made my partner and I feel like our comfort and happiness on this day were a top priority for her and that she would do everything she could to make sure we'd have the best day possible (and we totally did!) Meeting her in person on the wedding day was a moment where we felt so comfortable with her that you'd think we had known her for years even though we haven't. I wholeheartedly recommend Jackie Reinking as an Officiant (and if you need a photographer Sascha Reinking takes great photographs -they work very well together!) More...
If you are just beginning to think about getting married and eloping, your 1st call should be to Jackie. She is extremely responsive, and the utmost professional. She will put your mind at ease, and walk you through the process. She will not only explain what's all involved, but she will ask you to think about things that are not on your mind that you either forgot or did not consider. She is very creative, and what was very important to us as busy working professionals is that she was very detailed and thorough. Do not hesitate! Also, she partners with her husband who is a photographer, and as a team they will create an experience for you that you will remember for years to come. It's a shame it goes by so fast, please take a beat/deep breath and go on your elopement journey with Jackie. More...
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. More...
Do you want a beautiful and personalized wedding ceremony? Jackie is the best!!
We would truly recommend Jackie to anyone getting married in NYC. She was amazing to work with and really made our wedding ceremony what we wanted. We were married with just close friends and family on the Highline and her words were magical. She walked us through the entire process beforehand and we were truly happy with our vows and final ceremony. Jackie is a true professional and an amazing Officiant. Thank you Jackie!! More...
jackie conducted our private ceremony very warmhearted and intimate. we can truly recommend her!
Jackie was absolutely amazing to work with. My husband and I planned our wedding from Arkansas and she was very responsive to emails. The ceremony she put together was thoughtful and perfect for us. After our ceremony I found out she (and her talented photographer husband) were on their third wedding of the day! Despite having had a full day, they brought kind and loving energy to our ceremony. I would definitely recommend Team Reinking to anybody. More...
Jackie was simply perfect. She wrote such a moving ceremony! She sent us a list of beautiful readings to choose from and asked us simple questions that allowed her to craft the perfect ceremony. (She's very intuitive!) We never felt rushed, even though it was a busy day for her. She allowed our family and friends to speak, even when it wasn't scheduled. She was emotional and really showed that our union was special to her, even though she must see so many every week! I'm so happy that Jackie married us. It was a special day, and part of that was her!! More...
We were originally going to arrive in New York from the UK for a simple elopement ceremony at City Hall. But then 22 family and friends wanted to join us so we changed location and decided on Central Park. But then who to officiate? When you're living in the UK, and you're organising a wedding in New York with only email and the internet to help you, you need to get it right. Jackie's name kept coming up on search results, and the reviews of her work as an officiant on other weddings made her the obvious choice. Communication was key and it was amazing how she picked up on so much of the real us from the information in exchange of emails. I can wholly recommend Jackie for her professionalism and communication, and for providing us with many memories of such a special day. Her words drew tears from not only us, but may of our guests. And she knew how to put us at ease, and guide us through what can be a very emotional day. More...
We found Jackie through her husband, Sascha, who was our wonderful photographer! Jackie was super helpful with setting up our ceremony, always quick to respond, and is one of the warmest people you will ever meet! She was able to bring so much love and joy into our day, and as I listened to her speak during the ceremony I felt like I was hearing an old friend describe our lives. Jackie is a beautiful person inside and out, her and Sascha make quite the duo! We are so happy to have met Jackie and Sascha, and even luckier that they were apart of our day! I highly recommend!! More...
Jackie is so sweet! Genuinely lovely lady who made our day so special. She just "got" us and I felt it was very personalalised and flowed perfectly. She is in love with people being in love and was so so happy for us... would 100% recommend. Jackie and Sascha together was perfect as you can see how in love they are which makes the day even more special. Thanks so much xx More...
Jackie was wonderful! Even though we had briefly communicated over phone/email before the big day, she was able to put together a ceremony more sentimental than I could have imagined. She made our wedding day truly special. More...
I found Jackie through her husband Sascha who was our wedding photographer. I'm so glad because Jackie was a wonderful officiant. Jackie was very easy to deal with, even though we had to plan our wedding via email from the other side of the world. Jackie took the time to find out about who we were as a couple and had a heap of ideas to ensure our ceremony was what we wanted. Jackie was also very obliging, offering help where needed and was really responsive. Jackie was a great sport and built some funny bits into our ceremony, including the wedding scene from the Princess Bride. She also had a very calming nature on the day which was appreciated. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks Jackie. More...
Jackie was a super fun and friendly officiant who wanted to ensure that we got a ceremony that really reflected our personalities. On the day it felt like having a friend marry us, someone who could share our sense of humour and really get us on a human level. It didn't feel stuffy or over rehearsed! We can't recommend Jackie enough as an officiant for your NYC nuptials. More...
Jackie was lovely and understanding, she asked all the right questions, she put us all at ease. Jackie emailed me often asking for pictures and suggestions and would send back both help and advise to any questions that I asked. During her free time Jackie also met with my partner and I on her way to a meeting, just to say hello. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jackie to perform your ceremony. She has such a warm personality you can't help but feel relaxed in her presence. Jackie also sorts out all of the legal documentation after she has conducted the ceremony too. She deserves more than a five star rating!! More...
We highly recommend Jackie as an officiant! She is such a warm, kind and genuine person and did such a great job with officiating our elopement. When my partner and I first made contact with Jackie and Sascha we couldn't believe how easy it was to organize a photographer and officiant in one go! Being the husband & wife photographer & officiant super team that they are it definitely made coordinating the logistics of the ceremony so much easier on our end.
Jackie tapered the ceremony beautifully to suit us and when we were running a bit late for the ceremony due to the torrential rain, her calmness helped us relax when we arrived a little flustered. We loved our special day, rain and all and so glad we did it with Jackie's help. More...
where do I start? from our first point of contact I knew I had to book Jackie to marry us. Jackie is so lovely, and you could really feel her passion in her emails. She made the process of eloping from Australia so easy. Thank you so much Jackie More...
Jackie did a beautiful ceremony for us. We felt very at ease with her as if she knew us from a long time. We loved the time with spent with her.
Had a nice eamil contact before the wedding where all questions were answered. Jackie made a really good job during the ceremony to make us feel comfortable. Thank you for that great day!
Jackie made our wildest dreams come true and with only 16 hours notice...we literally really eloped. I cannot express how incredibly blessed I feel to have found Jackie and I loved her so much I am trying to figure out a way to have her meet us in Puerto Rico where we are planning a formal family wedding. I wholeheartedly recommend Jackie to family, friends and even strangers who hope to make their special day as beautiful as possible. She is not only professional but also kind in ensuring that her customers get exactly what they want. Give her a shot, you won't regret it. More...
Jackie was our officiant for our Central Park wedding. She was super helpful and very responsive throughout the entire process, often offering additional helpful info about the area since we are from out of town. We emailed, we talked on the phone, we completed a survey and then she sent the most perfect vows for us to review. Her calming spirit and beautiful (strikingly beautiful) speaking voice were perfect for our ceremony. She was so genuine and professional. Check out her husband Sascha Reinking for photography. These guys are an amazing couple. So thankful I stumbled upon them online. More...
Jackie and Sascha were great! We hired them for our elopement in NY. They were very helpful at providing all sort of tips and information. Jackie prepared a very nice reading for our ceremony which was officiated by Daniela, since we ask for somebody who also spoke Spanish. the reading was beautiful and very thoughtful. The words really resonated with both of us, and reinforced how we feel for each other and our commitment to being together.
Jackie was also was very flexible with the time and location, since it looked like it was going to poured that day and we were thinking on postponing the ceremony for the following date. Luckily we didn't. Although, it was a grey day, it barely rained during the ceremony, everything turned out well and we have the best memories from that day and the best pictures from her husband Sascha.
So, if you're considering getting married in NYC, we'd definitely recommend Jackie and Sascha. They are a strong team and will make everything go smoothly, so you can relax and enjoy one of the most special moments in your life. More...
Jackie performed our elopement ceremony in Central Park a few weeks ago. She was so great through the whole process. Eventhough we only had contact through emails until our wedding day, but we had such a beautiful and personal ceremony. Thanks to Jackie for holding a very private and intimate ceremony for us. She found the right words based on our wishes and our personal story. Jackie was always available for our questions. Her service is highly recommendable! More...
There could never be a better officiant than Jackie. Thanks for all.
Jackie married me and my now husband as part of a package with Sascha!
She contacted me and asked for lots of info which helped her know us better as a couple!
She also couldn't have been more helpful if she tried making sure we knew what to do and where to go to get licence etc!
She tailored the service to exactly what we wanted and on the day was absolutely beautiful
Thank you so much and I would 100% recommend Jackie to marry you.
Perfect day More...
Working with Jackie was a pleasure. She was so responsive and positive. She was completely flexible in coming up with a beautiful Hindu-Quaker ceremony, that was truly special for us. We feel truly lucky to have found Jackie in our search for an officiant. She helped us ensure that everything was organized from getting our license to including our families on the Big Day. Our wedding day was truly special, and we cannot imagine it without Jackie. More...
Thanks to Jackie for holding a very private and intimate ceremony for us. It was great working with you and it was definitely the best decision choosing you for our big day!! It was perfect!!!
We worked with Jackie, and her lovely husband Sascha for our elopement in December 2016, 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. More...
Jackie was simply a breath of fresh air on our wedding day. We had never met her before, but she was a natural at helping my husband, Alex, and I feel at ease throughout the entire ceremony. She was extremely articulate and very warm and the vows that she had written for us were so perfectly short and sweet and meaningful - just as we hoped our vows would be. She was the perfect officiant for our New York City wedding ceremony and we highly recommend her to anyone who plans an elopement in New York City. More...
Jackie went out of her way to make sure that our ceremony was perfect for us. She was able to pick readings that resembled our relationship and helped us with the process of getting married internationally. She was able to put my mind at ease even when I forgot the vital piece of paper! Both Jackie and her husband Sascha (photographer) were relaxed people who we seemed to feel as though they were friends despite not knowing them. Would highly recommend team Reinking for all weddings and special events! More...
Jackie was nothing short of fantastic to work with. She did a great job consulting with us to find out what we wanted, not just a standard service. She was so sweet and I felt like she really wanted to get to know us and who we are as a couple to give us the best service possible. More...
Coming from Germany, we wanted to tie the knot at the City Clerk in NYC at first. Since we had booked a photographer and didn't know how long we would have to wait at the City Clerk we decided to book Jackie to be more flexible with the time and location. That was the best decision.
Jackie performed our elopement ceremony in Central Park a few weeks ago. We absolutely cannot say enough about how wonderful she was. Jackie was great communicating before our ceremony. She wanted to know about us and really wanted to make sure the ceremony fit who we were and would be exactly what we would love for that day. She was so nice to meet my fiancé at the Gapstow Bridge so I could walk with our photographer, Sascha Reinking to meet them there. One of the best things she did was, before we started, have us just stop and take in the moment. Our heads were swirling right then and it was so much appreciated that she had us just stop for a minute and realize how incredible this moment was. Her words were so special and she made us feel like she truly cared about us and was genuinely so happy for us. We cannot say enough about how much she added to our day. Getting married is one of the most special days and Jackie truly helped it be more than we ever could have imagined. More...
Jackie was a pleasure to have as our celebrant. Kind, courteous, and professional, Jackie always liased with us via email almost immediately if we sent any enquiries, despite our distance from Australia. If you are thinking of eloping in New York as a destination weddding you will be more than comfortable in Jackie's capable hands. More...
We were fortunate enough to have Jackie write our vows and Officiate our NYC elopement. Jackie did an outstanding job writing the vows. Her genuine and loving nature was precisely the type of Officiant we required on our special day. Jackie's has a great voice too - it really draws you in! Thinking back on it now, we feel so lucky to have had Jackie as our Officiant; it's so important the Officiant is perfect because it allowed us to stay completely in the moment without any distractions. We'll never forget her. More...
Jackie did such a great job officiating our wedding. She gave just the right amount of guidance, and also accommodated what we wanted to do, and it came together perfectly. It's clear that Jackie loves officiating and it shows in her work. More...
We chose Jackie as officiant for our wedding in NYC in August and working with her was just amazing. She was kind, loving and the words she chose for the ceremony were just perfect.
We also worked with her husband as our wedding photographer - he took the most wonderful photos.
They are a dream team! More...
Jackie has been very heartful, helpfull and supporting during planing and the wedding itself!
We had a great time and are still touched by the ceremony
On the beginning I was nervous but Jackie had the right words that made the ceremony unforgettable. We can highly recommend Jackie
I can't put into words how much we appreciate the elopement that Jackie & Sascha helped us to create. It was absolutely the best day of our lives, and sharing it with our wonderful officiant Jackie and her amazingly talented husband and photographer Sascha just made it even more perfect. Organising everything from here in Australia was a breeze with Jackie and Sascha ready to offer advice and help at every step - we could not recommend them more highly. Just a beautiful couple, helping others to make their special day absolutely magical. We love you guys, thank you so much for everything. Felicity & Jay More...
Jackie is a wonderful, warmhearted and patient woman. And she is very flexible. We decided to marry about three weeks bevor the date - no problem for Jackie. She had many offers for our marriage and she was also open and interested in our plans. To get a feeling for us, she asked a lot and that's the reason why the ceremony was perfect!
Thanks a lot for everything, especially for making our day together with Sascha Reinking Photography! More...
We would highly recommend Jackie as a wedding officiant if you are getting married in New York city. Jackie was the officiant at our central park wedding in early august. Jackie's husband Sascha Reinking was our photographer. They were great fun to be with and made us feel incredibly relaxed and able to enjoy our special day. Jackie was really helpful and easy to contact in the run up to the wedding and offered fab suggestions and ideas for the ceremony. She was excellent at finding out a bit about us and was absolutely on the mark in terms of how she delivered the ceremony with the right balance of seriousness and fun, keeping us at ease and enabling us to enjoy our wedding. Jackie was the perfect choice and we are thrilled to have had her as our officiant. Thank you Jackie ! More...
Everything was great with Jackie, she is such a nice person, and the ceremony was really awsome and personal to us. We wrote a lot emails bevore, because we came from germany, and everything was perfect. She did a really great job, and she is doing it with love. More...
Jackie was our officiant while her husband, Sascha, was our photographer. The whole team was really responsive and prompt with emails and phones. We arranged everything from A-Z in one week, as we believe that an elopement should be simple. The prices were reasonable and we got discounts for officiant service as well as hair and make-up because we work with Jackie & Sascha team. It was a pleasant working with Jackie!
A & N More...
We were fortunate to discover Jackie through her husband Sascha (photographer). There was never any pressure to choose her as our officiant, however it just seemed like the perfect fit for what we were looking for and we definitely made the right choice. We had a small group of family and friends witnessing who all thought Jackie delivered a beautiful ceremony. Throughout the entire process Jackie was always friendly and helpful; tailoring an intimate ceremony around the essence of who we were and what marriage meant to us. She also allowed us to add in a few special requests which helped create a more personal and unconventional type of ceremony. Jackie has such a warm and bubbly person, that anyone who has the pleasure of meeting her would feel as though they'd known her for years. We even felt a little awkward and scared standing in front of everyone; however despite our nerves Jackie helped get us through it and made sure we still had fun. We are so grateful to have had Team Reinking with us on our special day. They make the perfect team and we'll always remember our wedding day as one of the happiest, most amazing day of our lives. More...
We were very pleased with the ceremony Jackie put together for us! She gave us options for different readings and poems to include in the ceremony. It was beautiful. Our planning was spontaneous and the weather changed that week. Jackie was flexible to accommodate a day earlier and everything worked out perfectly. We highly recommend Jackie! - Julia & Austin, Portland Oregon More...
If you’re looking for a lovely and unique officiant, Jackie has to be your first choice!
Eventhough we only had contact through e mails until our wedding day, we had a beautiful and personal ceremony.
Jackie gave us the opportunity to choose poems we like for our wedding. We decided to leave it up to her and she chose wonderful pieces and we laughed and cried together.
It felt like we‘ve known each other for a long time and we will never forget this day! More...
She is very relatable. Her aura is calming. Almost like a good friend.
I didn't realize just how important WHO we picked as our officiant was until we were standing in front of Jackie and she was leading us through our vows. Before we started, Jackie told us to enjoy the moment, to soak it up, to take our time...that today would fly by and she wanted us to really savor being there together. She didn't know us other than through our email correspondence, but it was immediately obvious that she really cared about us and making our day special. The sincerity with which she spoke was moving. Even our wedding guests commented on what a great job she did after the ceremony was over. This woman made the most important words we'll probably ever say so beautiful, so full of emotion, and yet so comfortable and intimate.
Prior to the wedding, Jackie corresponded with us about exactly what we wanted in our vows. She asked for poems, readings, and made sure the specific language was just how we had envisioned it. She took our feedback and perfectly crafted our ceremony. In our short time with Jackie, my husband and I fell in love with her and the genuineness of her approach to, not only our wedding, but to us. More...
Jackie was so great through the whole process. Before the wedding she helped us determine the ceremony we wanted and what we should/would say to each other. The day of the ceremony she jumped in and helped us wrangle the wedding party, get everyone situated at the venue and ready to head down the aisle. During the nuptials she guided everyone through a beautiful ceremony. You can tell she loves every step of the process. Our wedding guests gushed about how amazing she was. Thanks again, Jackie! More...
Myself and my husband come across Jackie whilst searching for our photographer. It turned out Jackie's husband is a truly amazing photographer and so for us it was perfect....a husband and wife who will marry us and capture our memories together
Jackie was just so wonderful and so caring. She drafted up our ceremony for us before we come over (we are from the UK) and when we proof read it we cried. Then actually hearing it on the day, was even more beautiful than we could of ever imagined and hoped. We wouldn't of had they day we had if it wasn't for Jackie and Sascha. They have given us memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you so much for everything....if I could score you both higher I would in a heartbeat #teamreinking xxxx More...
Thank you Jackie for the great day and your lovely ceremony.
Many thanks to Jackie for a very nice ceremony which we will never forget. She found the right words based on our wishes and our personal story. Jackie was always available for our questions. Her service is highly recommendable! More...
Jackie did an amazing job setting everything up for us, and what she wrote and came up with for the ceremony was very beautiful and touching. Her team member, Amy, actually performed the ceremony and did a wonderful job officiating it. Everything about the process with Jackie and the Elopement team was seamless and perfect. More...
Jackies does her Job with so much passion and dedication, her skripted ceremony was perfect for us.
We enjoyed every minute!
My husband and I were fortunate enough to engage the services of both Jackie as our wedding officiant and her lovely husband Sascha as our photographer (and also doubling as our witness!) What can we say about Jackie - she is truly lovely! Warm, friendly, professional. She put us at ease right from the first contact email up until our big day when she made our ceremony special. Her smile made us both relax as soon as we met her. She answered our queries and suggested beautiful words for our ceremony. We had an amazing wedding day at Central Park and after our ceremony Sascha took our photos, which are beautiful. Jackie and Sascha are the "A" Team and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of booking their New York wedding. Long may Team Reinking continue their awesome work :-) More...
My partner won a trip to New York on a radio show in the UK. She booked the dates and as we had talked about getting married I started to think about a secret wedding and wondered if it would be possible, I took to the Web and started searching, after viewing a few sites I came across Sacha Rienking photography. The site was welcoming and really informative and gave me hope I could actually do it! I emailed him in the hope Jackie his wife could officiate and he could video the ceremony for our families. Sacha was really helpful with some great information, he said to contact Jackie direct and gave contact details of people that could do the video.
I emailed Jackie and bombarded her with questions which could have proved difficult due to the time difference but nothing seemed too much trouble, I can't believe how calm and reassuring she was! She had all the answers and more, seemingly knowing exactly what I wanted down to every last detail. There were a few moments when I thought it wouldn't happen but with Jackie on board I knew it would work.I proposed on the plane on the way over and did have to reveal to my partner we were getting married so we could get the licence but did keep the finer details a secret. We met in Central Park before a carriage ride to meet Jackie where she guided us through the amazing ceremony. It was perfect and she was fantastic! I can't thank her enough for what she did. It started as a crazy idea but with Jackie's help it became a once in a lifetime memory! More...
Jackie Reinking was a great choice for us when it came to selecting an officiant for our wedding. She was an absolute pleasure to work with on all levels. We had zero stress working with Jackie. She readily (and cheerfully) assisted in helping us plan our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted it to be. We found her to be a great resource for location and wording of the ceremony, organized, prompt...a true professional but also very fun! She truly made our dream a reality! More...
We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our wedding. From the first email to the wedding day, Jackie was always there to answer any questions and to check how we were doing. My guests all commented on how personal and relaxed our ceremony was...and swore we must have know Jackie for years. I cannot speak highly enough of Jackie and would recommended her to anyone and everyone. Thank you for making our day so special. More...
Jackie was, in a word, PERFECTION. She helped me pull of an "ambush marriage" on the pier on LIC as the sun was setting [we were having our big wedding in New Orleans the following week and I wanted to do something different than City Hall]. It was not only fun and magical but her words, ceremony and energy were just incredible. I cannot recommend her enough for your ceremony if you want something special, heartfelt and perfect for your day. We didn't get to work with Sascha as pictures were not needed for our purposes but his photography is beautiful and I'd definitely book him for a future event. Overall cannot say enough good things about the pair! Thank you so much Jackie. xo More...
Jackie was responsive right from the start. She made the whole process simple by including links to the appropriate City Hall forms, asking a few questions about us and finally sending us the detailed program. The ceremony was really sweet and she made us feel so special on our day. I could not have asked for a better officiant. Will definitely recommend to friends! More...
Sascha is such an amazing and gifted photographer! We are so happy we chose him for our wedding pictures. We had our photos taken for two hours during and following the ceremony and everything turned out phenomenal. We chose to elope in Central Park and Sascha knew all the best places to go for pictures with the great scenery. He is very easy to work with and truly makes you feel at ease during the entire process. I highly recommend Sascha to photograph any special event! More...
Super friendly and humourous celebrant that we were lucky enough to have officiant our special day. Could not recommend her services more to any happy couple looking for a celebrant. Thanks again Jackie!!! xx
Jackie is a bubbly, lovely, warm and special lady and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect officiant to perform our New York wedding ceremony. Jackie responded promptly to our emails and was so helpful with planning our ceremony. On the big day she was smiling and made us feel at ease. Our ceremony was beautiful. Jackie provides a top quality service and we cannot recommend her highly enough. More...
Carina & Bernd
We will never forget this day! Thank you Jackie!
All I can say is: From the heart, thank you my dear Jackie for your wonderful work. Your touching words and your heard-warming way to marry my husband and me blessed us.
Despite us being incredibly disorganised, Jackie was incredibly patient and so wonderful to deal with. We'd recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant in NYC.
Jackie was recommended to us by a wedding photographer friend, who had heard terrific things about her from others in the industry. It was such a pleasure to work with her from beginning to end. She fielded many, many questions for us, as we didn't really know what we wanted our ceremony to be like, and helped us put together something unique and special. We felt in very good hands, and we received so many compliments about how warm and personal Jackie and the ceremony she put together were (sentiments that we shared!) We would highly recommend Jackie! More...
Thank you Jackie for making our wedding day memorable. Everything was simple and perfect, the day in NYC couldn't have been better, beautiful autumn day. I will remember the day forever. Thanks for the countless correspondence in the planning of the ceremony. You are the best! More...
Jackie made our elopement so special with her congenialness ( and she has such a beautiful voice by the way...)!The ceremony was so agitating,I think we used every handkerchief that was available :-) Jackie is very professional and we could not imagine that anyone could make a better job than her - Jackie,I´m sure that we will make a renewal of vows in a couple of years with you, so please go on with your fantastic work!
Lots of kisses and hugs from Germany,

From start to finish Jackie was so professional, friendly and relaxing. She listened to our requests then made a beautiful ceremony for us with our vows and readings. Jackie clearly loves what she does. Having team Reinking at our wedding (Jackie as officiant and Sascha as our wedding photographer) made our day feel even more intimate and full of joy as they are clearly such a loving genuinely happy couple. Thanks guys for making our day so amazing. More...
We met Jackie the day of our elopement after having arranged our readings and vows via email. She has the most calming energy, and in the midst of one of the busiest places in NYC, she made us feel like we were there all by ourselves. She reflected back our feelings as the words were spoken, truly making our ceremony a beautiful and meaningful celebration of our love and commitment. More...

Jackie gave us a wonderful and very beautiful wedding ceremony. she caused us a wonderful feeling and we are especially happy that she told our poem in German. which was very appreciative. We can recommended all the bridal couples the team Reinking. A great team, professional and always with a heart in the matter. Perfect! More...

Jackie is such a great Person. The ceremony was full of love and she is so heartily.
It was so amazing and special. We will never forget the moments with her.
Jackie made our day to THAT SPECIAL ONE in our life. We could not expect someone better for that "job"!!! More...
It was so much fun to spend our wedding day with Sascha (Photography) and Jackie (Officiant) Reinking. They both work very professional and they are a perfect team. It was a perfect day for us! We definitely recommend them both! More...
Couldn't recommend Jackie enough! She was so helpful with all our questions and was extremely patient with my terrible response times. She performed the most beautiful ceremony for our elopement wedding. It was charming and personal, and we couldn't fault her. More...
Jackie was one of the warmest and most amazing people to work with to plan our wedding. We had no idea with where to even begin and she helped and guided us through the whole process, suggested ideas for us to think about, provided us examples of vows and never once made us feel like we were an inconvenience. She and her husband made our elopement perfect in every aspect.
We loved our day with her and she made it extremely personal and special for us.
Thanks Team Reinking for being awesome. You will be in our hearts and memories forever. More...
We chose Jackie as our efficient for our NYC Central Park elopement and could not have gotten any luckier in finding such an amazing and talented woman! Right from the beginning, Jackie worked closely with us to create a ceremony that was unique and meaningful. She was open to all our ideas and helped guide us in selecting readings and writing our vows taking time to really get to know us as a couple. Being from abroad and unfamiliar with the city, Jackie even helped us with the logistical aspects of planning our elopement going above and beyond to ensure every detail was considered. Most special, was just how incredibly excited Jackie was for us on our wedding day. She was so personable and caring she felt more like a close friend which made for an incredible ceremony during which everyone was happy and at ease.
Jackie was a critical part of making our NYC elopement more perfect than ever thought possible. Both she and her husband Sascha come very highly recommended - two of the most genuine and talented people you will meet. Thank you Team Reinking for making our wedding dreams come true! More...
Jackie is everything you could ever want in a wedding officiant! From the moment we contacted her, we felt comfortable with our choice - Jackie ensured that we were happy with everything to do with the ceremony as well as being super helpful with any questions we had (and incredibly patient with my indecisiveness!).
It was a great comfort knowing that the ceremony was one thing we didn't have to worry about at all, and that was genuinely down to Jackie. More...
Jackie was very helpful in setting up and coordinating the actual ceremony. We were constantly coordinating and revising the wording until all were pleased with it. Jackie did a great job and I would highly recommend her. More...
We called Jackie last minute to orchestrate a wedding for my husband and I to renew our vows. Somehow, in the short amount of time we had, she was able to completely understand my husband and I and the needs and desires we had for our family that special day. Our day was truly beautiful and Jackie was responsible for helping to make it that way. Thank you Jackie!! More...
Jackie officiated our elopement ceremony in NYC. If I had to do it again, I would choose her in a heartbeat! She was extremely flexible regarding the location (as in, we let her know a few hours before because of weather), but provided many options in terms of vows. Her voice is *BEAUTIFUL*. This doesn't seem important, you're thinking? Trust me, it is! Jackie's smooth and sweet voice can calm anyone's jittery wedding nerves in one syllable. She is very friendly and professional. And if you need a photographer, be sure to book her amazing husband, Sascha Reinking - he is superb! More...
Jackie is such a wonderful, fantastic and lovely person, but still very professional. We prepared our ceremony closely together with her: she asked for special anecdotes, poems or readings we would like to have included and she delivered a very personal and touching ceremony. Though, it was also important for Jackie, that we had fun during the ceremony and enjoyed the moment. Before she pronounced us husband and wife she asked to take a few seconds and to capture the moment and the happiness and to keep it forever in our heart and soul so we can free it when needed. This was a very emotional moment for us. We are so happy to have chosen Jackie as our Officiant – there couldn’t have been any better. She really loves what she does and that’s what you see and feel. You won't regret it to have her as your Officiant!
And don’t forget to check out Jackie’s husband, Sascha Reinking, who is the best wedding photographer ever. You will definitely enjoy working with this wonderful couple! More...

Since the first contact Jackie was uncomplicated and cordially. She answered all our questions and worked diligently to get to know us so that she could piece together a ceremony that met our expectations. When she sent us the first draft of the ceremony we were astonished, it felt like Jackie was a lifetime friend of ours. Jackie met all our expectations when we met her in person, she is fabulous!
On a sunny day in the Central Park we had our ceremony in a happy and romantic atmosphere, not least because of Jackie, who was so incredible soulful. And by the way “obstacle” is a quite difficult word to pronounce for a non-native speaker ;).
Once again, we would like to thank Jackie for making our elopement ceremony wonderful and unforgettable. Her passion for what she does is extremely genuine and refreshing and we would recommend Jackie to our best friends, or everyone else who enjoys love and happiness! More...
We used Jackie as our officiant on our wedding day after being recommended by her husband, our photographer Sascha Reinking. What a fantastic and professional couple to work with! We found this worked as our correspondence and ideas could be discussed between the two of them rather than 2 different companies. Jackie communicated with us and asked our ideas, what type of ceremony we wanted ect, and in the end the ceremony was everything we had wanted and more!! We left the verses and script to her, which she ran past us, and what we got was perfect!! I would highly recommend Jackie and also her husband Sascha.... Perfect team!! More...

Jackie Reinking is a beautiful, bubbly lady who worked closely with my husband and I to make our wedding service special and personal. We came across Jackie quiet late in the process but she very quickly endeared herself to us. When we finally met Jackie on the morning of our wedding in Central Park she was everything we expected and it was as if we were meeting a special friend. We would recommend Jackie to anyone looking for a wedding officiant with a special touch. Thank you again Jackie! More...
Jackie was the best officiant we could ever wish for. She was professional and soft-hearted at the same time, perfect! We would not hesitate to advise her to our best friends. Everything was just great. We worked out our ceremony together with her, so it was personalized just like we wanted it to be. We skipped the "2 minute ceremony" at the marriage bureau for an individual ceremony in central park and Jackie made it perfect, she even touched up my lipgloss after the ceremony :-).
So if you are looking for the perfect officiant for your big day, look no further, Jackie is everything you need! More...
