    We asked Venus to be our officiant, she was very easy to work with and she took the time and attention to learn about us prior to wedding. She's professional, prompt and I would definitely recommend her service to anyone who's looking for a great and fun officiant for their wedding.

    We're very happy to find her and had her as our officiant.
    She was very easy to work with, helpful, and open-minded.
    We're not religious people and wanted to have simple, casual, yet spiritual ceremony, and she did a great job!

    My husband and I were referred to Venus by my sister and I am so thankful for that. Venus made our ceremony fit Jared and I perfectly. It was like she had known us for years and was part of the family and friends who were there to celebrate with us. We got to talking over email and then set up a Skype meeting where we were able to get to know one another a little better and put a face to the names. She is very personable. After the Skype meeting she sent us a questionnaire asking us a little more personal questions just so she could really get a feel for who we were as individuals swell as a couple. She was extremely helpful with giving ideas of how the ceremony will run and let us sculpt it to fit us. Venus was able to meet up with us at the rehearsal which was super helpful and was on time to the wedding. She had my vows printed out as well as my husband. The ceremony went perfectly I couldn't have asked for a better officiant who really made our day even more special. It was perfect! Thank You Venus!

    I had the opportunity to work with A Non-Denominational Ceremony for an outdoor wedding ceremony at Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden. They're professional yet relaxed style was perfect for the garden's ambiance. In addition, the vows reflected the client's personality which led to a fun & exciting wedding.
