about Jenni

Hello! I’m Jenni, a Wisconsin-born, California-living gal! I live in Oakland and travel all over the world for weddings and events!

I've been planning weddings for almost a decade and love when I get the opportunity to officiate them too! It’s top priority for me to provide exceptional service to my clients as we embark on this journey together. 

Fun facts about Jenni: I'm a wedding planner AND officiant AND handywoman AND florist AND pretty much anything you need me to be. I have a business partner named Charles. He’s 30 pounds of pure French Bulldog muscle and very snorty. You’ll probably meet him.  I want your wedding ceremony to be perfect and I can’t wait to spend some time with you!

Fun facts about You: You’re looking for someone to build a thoughtful, personal, non-boring, sweet, entertaining, and memorable ceremony for your wedding! You don't want your guests falling asleep out there, do you? Let's grab a coffee / beer / brunch / happy hour and get to work! YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

If this sounds good to you, let’s chat! You can inquire through the form at the bottom of this page, call my phone like the old days (I love talking on the phone like the old days), or email me directly at jen@jennigrubba.com. I cannot wait to hear from you! 

Love, Jenni






As a civil wedding officiant, my primary role is to legalize the marriage—we are responsible for witnessing and validating the consent of marriage between you and your partner for the wedding license, and we are legally registered with the local city clerk’s office. 


Are you getting married on top of a mountain? On a beach? In a redwood grove? If you're getting married off the beaten path, that's okay. I'm happy to tag along!

vow renewal

Your vow renewal is a beautiful time to reflect and reaffirm the love that has sustained your marriage thus far.  My goal is to create a beautiful customized vow renewal ceremony that expresses your love and commitment and create a special moment in time for you and your family.


Have you decided you want to skip all the hoopla and just tie the knot? I can create the perfect ceremony on short notice NO PROBLEM. Sometimes you just can't wait to marry the one you love. 


A spiritual wedding ceremony acknowledges a higher power, but won't sound like any particular religion. Perfect for the couple who describe themselves as "spiritual but not religious," it aims to connect the couple and their friends and family to the universal truths of love and kindness through the couple's story and commitment to each other.


Marriage. Equality. That is all. xo


I'm 100% open to conducting the ceremony jointly and can help to design one that honors both ethnic and religious traditions involved. We'll make sure the ceremony doesn't try to incorporate too much and won't run too long while still hitting the really important stuff!


Let's run away together! If you're seeking a super special ceremony for just a few family and/or friends, you've come to the right place. I'll curate a beautiful and thoughtful ceremony for you and your loved ones. 

Jenni organized and officiated our wedding and I couldn’t believe the incredible job she did. She really took the time to learn about us as a couple and wrote such a thoughtful and personalized ceremony for us. We each wrote our own vows, but Jenni took care of the rest! Not only did she take that task off our shoulders and coordinated the logistics of the ceremony, but it was such a memorable and heartwarming experience that we will cherish forever.

simple i-dos

We're going to have an interview and planning session. I'm going to consult you on ceremony layout / logistics as well as administrative tasks relating to your license. I'm also going to come to rehearsal and walk you and your family through all the motions so nobody is confused on wedding day!



I need you to travel

60 miles of roundtrip travel is included in your package. If the ceremony site is further, you'll be billed the difference at $2/mile. If you need me to travel far far away with you, you'll be responsible for all reasonable travel and accommodations. 


i have special requests

You might be interested in something smaller, an elopement, vow renewals, or something unique. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. We can customize almost any situation! 



with THE package

You're booking a custom ceremony that will last around 20-30 minutes. I will never book more than one other wedding on your wedding day.  You'll have a new pal (plus Charles) for life! 



You may request a more customized (prettier) certificate to display as you wish - $50

You may order a customized ceremony/vow scripture that I will personally calligraph and frame for you - $150



Happily married
