I am always honored when a couple chooses to put their confidence in me to help them make their wedding ceremony as special as they dream it can be. Your wedding is a very special day marking a turning point in your relationship. Allow me to help make it as unique and individual or as traditional and conventional as you would like it to be. I am willing to help with suggestions and advice or completely follow your plans as to how you would like things to be done on your day.
Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?
It was a fantastic day, and Rebecca was a wonderful leader for our ceremony. Not only did she provide reassurance and calming words of advice before our big day, but she was there for us throughout the ceremony and truly showed her care and expertise as a Minister. She arrived on time, and were dressed very professionally & appropriately for our ceremony type and location.
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?
Rebecca was so kind and helped to talk us through the basics of the ceremony, most specifically, the oh-so-important exchange of rings between my husband and I. We honestly had NO idea of how a 'proper' ceremony takes place, or the customary procedures, and so she took the time to educate us about how to best proceed. The same goes for our photographs - without a professional photographer, we weren't sure how to set up the perfect poses and shots. Once again, Rebecca was there with her knowledge and expertise and guided us into a variety of poses and settings. The pictures all turned out wonderfully, and I am so thankful that we had her there to help us get things "just right".
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?
Rebecca allowed us to customize every single aspect of the ceremony, from the opening, to the readings, to the vows, and conclusion. She was incredibly flexible and gave us the option of having an additional "Honey Ceremony" highlighting the sweetness in life, and she also gave us options of the readings that focused upon our foundation of *friendship* as Husband & Wife.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?
Our guests marveled at how professional Rebecca came across as an Officiant, and how warm and friendly she was in conducting our ceremony. My friends were also impressed with the way Rebecca helped us to set up the perfect poses and positions for photographs. This shows that she goes above and beyond her traditional duties, and truly cares about the couple for whom she is officiating the wedding.
