We are SO happy we chose Joan as our wedding officiant! She is so easy going, kind and passionate. She helped us plan our perfect ceremony and allowed us to make changes right up until the day before the wedding! She came to our rehearsal dinner and did a run-through of the ceremony which made us feel at ease and definitely helped calm our nerves. She did an amazing job during the ceremony and we had a lot of compliments about her from our guests. We highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Joan!! August 2020

Ken & Huong
Thank you to Joan (Godden) for a great and smooth service, especially during the pandemic! Your experience was shown in calling people to their seats, in prepping up the different pens for signing (COVID19 best practice), and for the pack of tissues for my wife. Your pacing was excellent, and pronunciation of the Vietnamese words we asked you to do was spot on and made it fun! I can keep going on all the things you did well! Thank you so much!

Jim & Florence
Joan Godden and All Seasons made our special day absolutely perfect. We decided to elope seeing as it was our second marriage and we wanted to keep it simple and meaningful. Our decision made and performed within two weeks. Joan was so helpful and so lighthearted. She even worked some personal jokes into our ceremony much to the surprise of my husband. It was perfect and we would recommend her to anyone. Thank you for making our special day exactly the way we wanted it. Florence & Jim Crawford June 2018
