Our wedding

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We were married by Nan on March 30th of this year and she did an GREAT job!! When I was researching Marriage Officiates, there were plenty to pick from. Once I checked out Nan’s website at ceremoniesbynan.com, I was hooked. Nan was great at consulting with us to ensure all of the details were addressed. I was confident that she had it under control but she was patient with us so we felt comfortable that everything would occur just as we wanted (and it did!), She was extremely helpful in providing us samples of other ceremonies that we used to write out own vows, getting ideas from her material and adding our own specifics to make it “our” ceremony. Nan was very good at listening to us and determining exactly what type of ceremony we wanted and then she provided us with many ideas to enhance our ceremony. And it must have worked because we received many compliments after the ceremony about how beautiful yet fun the wedding ceremony was. I’m sure there’s many fine Marriage Officiates out there, but if you select Nan, you’ll be confident in the knowledge that she’s got it 100% under control. Good luck on your special day!

Dream Wedding Come True

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

My now husband and I were married by Nan Klater in Tampa, FL at a family member's home. Because my husband and I lived in a different state we contacted Nan via phone and had a wonderful first conversation. Our initial thought was that this woman knew what she was doing. We talked to her for about 15 - 20 minutes and gave her some background information about who we were, why we wanted to get married and the most important part - our date and location. She gave us some great information about the marriage process and put us at ease. Because we were getting married out of state, my husband and I were initially worried about any hoops we would have to jump through but Nan's professional attitude and expertise about weddings calmed our nerves. We communicated primarily via e-mail, in which we shared more about our story to allow Nan the opportunity to better understand who we were as a couple and ensure she provided us the wedding of our dreams. Because my husband and I wanted to write our own ceremony and vows, Nan emailed us some sample wedding ceremony's she has done in the past and offered us expertise guidance, as we went through the writing process.

Nan did offer us the option of having her come to our wedding location in advance to run through the wedding, but due to our wedding party's varying flight schedules we opted to go to her. The day before our wedding, my husband, my mother and I went to Nan's office and did a practice run through. Nan answered any last minute questions and once again calmed our nerves. The day of the wedding was a whirlwind in the morning but Nan arrived an hour before the wedding and met with both my husband and me separately. She gave each of us the final run down before the "big moment" and for me, the next thing I remembered, was walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Nan and my future husband waiting for me at the other end. Nan's officiating was flawless. She spoke clearly, eloquently and loud. She was hands down the best person we could have ever asked to officiate our wedding.

The officiant plays such an intimate and personal role in one's wedding.They come into your lives for such a short moment but they leave an everlasting, incredible impact. I am truly blessed to have met Nan Klater and have her officiate our intimate dream wedding.

If you would like to see the ceremony we put together and some videos in which you can hear and see Nan officiate, please visit the wedding website I created: http://web.me.com/escott613/WhenEricMetLiz/Wedding_Ceremony.html

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Nan made us more than comfortable. We hadn't met but over the phone and email. But she was right there before the ceremony to make sure everything was going well.

Wonderful Officiant

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Nan was wonderful to be around. Just meeting her was a calming experience. She took care of every step even when we weren't able to remember our name. She is a beautiful kind spirit that you feel from the moment you meet her.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She let us choose from many different ceremony ideas and she spoke with such authority and kindness that the works will forever be remembered. She also took my most favorite picture of my husband and I. She arrive plenty early and made us both feel so comfortable

Nan is a really wonderful choice

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes she made me very comfortable and was extremely calm in the eye of my craziness that day. Obviously, she's worked at many weddings and probably very little bride-insanity phases her. Also, I have a lot of diversity in my family and she wasn't judgmental at all which I had a few raised eyebrows with other officiants I talked to who were more conservative. haha

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Not too much because I customized my whole ceremony, but my original ceremony I wrote was a bit verbose so she edited in a very tasteful way and made it run a lot smoother than if she had run by my entire script.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

I wrote most of it, it was a secular Jewish ceremony but Nan helped me edit it so it flowed better and was more tasteful, but she has tons of different ceremonies to choose from and all of them are beautiful.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

"Was that a rabbi????" (from an older Jewish relative... lol) oh and "What a nice ceremony... poignant, sweet, and short!"

Nan made our wonderful day even better!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Nan made everyone feel at ease during our rehearsal and took complete control so that we did not have to worry about details, timing or anything else that could stress us out. She was very professional and caring. The ceremony went smoothly and without any problems because she was well prepared and made it a relaxing, enjoyable experience.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Nan helped us plan and customize our ceremony exactly as we wanted. She was patient with our revisions and recommeded resources to find what we needed.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wrote out own vows, added poetry and personal stories were all part of a unique ceremony which we crafted with our family and friends. Words are the most powerful messangers. Our words combines with the words used by Nan as officiant, conveyed the true meaning of our love and the importance of that love, along with the support of the people in our lives to make this "Our" day filled memories to last a lifetime.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Our friend Ray told us about a year after our ceremony "That was the most beautiful and unique wedding that I ever attended, bar none!" which we considered a great compliment especially since his memory of the event had evidently lingered for some time! We had lots of wonderful comments the day of and after as well. It seemed everyone had a wonderful time.
