"On August 31st, I married the love of my life. Jim Albani was our officiant and we could not be happier with our choice! He was organized, professional, kind, and so patient. He made it really easy for us to pick out everything that we wanted to include in our ceremony and did everything just perfectly. He definitely went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I had a beautiful, and personalized ceremony. We are so happy we found him and would strongly recommend using Jim as an officiant to anyone getting married!"
"We are so happy that we found Cris and that he officiated our January 6th wedding. We really knew nothing about planning a wedding ceremony, Cris walked us through the many options he has seen and gave us the space to make it our own. We could really tell he cared about us as a couple and wanted to make our day the best it could be. We had so many compliments about how personal our ceremony was and how warm and personable Cris was. If we remember anything from our wedding day, it would be how special, romantic, funny, and family oriented our ceremony was. Thank you! Everyone could tell how passionate you are about what you do."

"We are spiritual but not religious, and although we didn’t want a church wedding, we wanted a ceremony that would reflect our spirituality. Jill Englund took our ideas and wove them together to create a beautiful, unique ceremony that reflected who we are and what we believe. She has a calm but powerful presence that makes people want to listen to her. Our guests all asked where she preaches because they want to be in her church. Did we mention she is also a rock and roll singer? Jill is very cool, and we highly recommend her as a wedding officiant."

"With less than a month before the wedding, we were still looking for a wedding officiant when we found Kate! She was very helpful in getting us started thinking about what we wanted in a ceremony, and gave us their wedding ceremony ebook to look over until we could meet. We loved her as soon as we met her! She was very nice and professional, and made us feel at ease right away. We went over the whole ceremony. In the few weeks before the wedding she was very quick at answering any of the questions that we had. Kate did everything she could to make our ceremony memorable, special and personal! Everyone still talks about how wonderful the ceremony was. We are so happy we went with Kate, and we highly recommend her! Thank you so much Kate for making our wedding day special!"
"We can't thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony you gave us. We received so many compliments on how intimate and personal it was. We got our pictures back and we are grinning ear to ear in them...and laughing in others. It was such a special night. You did such a wonderful job telling our stories!"

"Thank you again for helping us have a meaningful ceremony. I was glad that even though Tyler doesn’t like to be in front of people that he liked going through and planning the ceremony together and appreciated all of it. Just as I did. His brother in law said “ Wow, I can truly say that I enjoyed every part of your ceremony and I almost cried at least twice.” We thought it was nice and have heard a lot of similar responses. Thank you for all of the choices you gave us to work with. Also, thanks for the book ideas. We both enjoy reading very much and all the Christian options are great."

"I had Cara Tollefson perform my wedding ceremony and it was great from the moment we met her to the minute the ceremony was done. She was very helpful and gave her opinions and suggestion through the ceremony writing process but still let it be something unique to us. My husband and I originally had a hard time finding someone we liked but when we first met Cara, we knew we wanted her to do our ceremony. I think we made a great choice. She was just very friendly and wonderful to work with. If I had to do it over again, I would choose her again."
"Nancy Lindgren did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding ceremony. I loved how she listened to both of us and came up with such unique ideas that truly depicted who we are individually and as a couple. I appreciated her patience as we continually added, changed, and tweaked the ceremony. I was impressed with her creativity and way with words. She has a wonderful gift. Our wedding was initially scheduled on the day of the 5th largest blizzard in Minnesota. We decided to reschedule for the following day and Nancy was incredibly accommodating and comforting. On the day of our wedding, I was fairly calm and I know a large part of that was due to her tranquil presence. I knew that she had everything under control. Guests after the ceremony said it was one of the most beautiful and touching that they had seen. She helped us create a ceremony truly from the heart. Both my husband and I recommend Nancy for any ceremony. She is intuitive, caring, patient, creative, professional, and very versed in the human spirit. Thank you Nancy for making this day one we will remember and cherish forever. We feel so incredibly blessed to have had you be a part of our special day."

"We loved Mark from the moment we met him for a number of reasons. Mark has an abundance of exceptional qualities and skills. He is funny, light-hearted and a great listener. Most importantly, he is patient. He took the time to understand the unique qualities my husband and I were bringing to the table, offered ideas for the ceremony. Ultimately, he afforded us the freedom to make our own choices. Simply stated, he was a guide for our marriage journey and someone we grew to trust immensely. Other skills that Mark exemplifies are his ability to communicate, to manage and organize multiple details. Having never done this before, we found Marks’ organizational skills and knowledge of wedding details, timelines and critical actions needed as keys to our success. My husband and I would highly recommend inviting Mark to work with you in planning your wedding."
Ginger officiated our wedding, and our ceremony was exactly as I wanted. I was able to plan the whole ceremony down to each word, each detail. She was also full of great advice. She listened to what I wanted and pointed us in the right direction, but let all the details be my very own! She is pleasant to work with, and I would highly recommend her for your wedding too!

From our first meeting with Marina, my husband Dwight and I knew we made the right choice by asking Marina to officiate our wedding. She put us at ease and helped guide us through the process from start to finish. She had great suggestions along the way to help us make the ceremony our own and uniquely us. I also really appreciated Marina keeping us on track, I’m a procrastinator by nature and Marina did a great job of helping us ensure we had all of the details taken care of well in advance of our big day.
On the day of, Marina was a calming force that helped ensure the ceremony went off without a hitch. Although the day was a blur, I specifically remember Marina’s calm and confident voice during the ceremony, her words – beautiful, spoken with love and sincerity.
Thanks, Marina for helping make our big day something we will always remember.

Ultimately, she delivered the message that we wished to share on our wedding day. We were happy to have had the chance to work with Lisa.”
