    More than an officiant, amazing vendor!

    No words to describe Christine. She is professional, generous, caring, and prompt. Very detail orientated and such a genuine human being. She truly cares from start to finish. She helped us coordinate our ceremony, and gathered our guests altogether. She made sure I was well taken care of and comfortable before my walk down the aisle as well as my husband. Thank you Christine for being so amazing on the best day of our lives! I would hire you a million times again I wouldn’t want any other officiant. She not only is an officiant but she helps out of her heart with what she can to make sure you as the bride and groom are ok. So blessed to have gotten the chance to work with her!

    Absolutely amazing!

    Christine was the absolute best and helped us feel completely at ease the entire planning process! She is a true professional and knows exactly how to officiate a wedding while being completely flexible to our suggestions and requests for the ceremony. She was super responsive and helpful in creating the perfect format for our wedding. She guided the rehearsal with such ease, our entire wedding party could not stop complimenting her and our coordinator even said she was the best officiant she's seen! We felt like we had known her for our entire lives! Christine was simply the best we could've ever asked for!

    Highly recommend: positive and calming presence, kind soul, and timely communication

    Reverend Christine was amazing to work with! My husband and I would 100% recommend Reverend Christine-- she was amazing every step of the way.
    She was early to our rehearsal the day before and had such a serene, positive, and competent demeanor. And she was so fabulous the day of the wedding! It really felt like Reverend Christine was a source of inspiration and a kindred spirit/spiritual guide (my husband and I aren't religious and so we also appreciated how open and welcoming Reverend Christine is) during the ceremony, and her steadying presence was perfect when I felt some nerves during the ceremony. She also rocked the small details: for example, she kept our vow books on her and handed them to us individually when we were reading our vows to each other, which was super helpful.
    She was also great in the planning stages as well. When we were looking to book an officiant, she was prompt with communication and was lovely to talk to on the phone. After we booked her, she immediately sent some lovely sample scripts and continued to be really timely in communication.
