I've worked with so many ceremony officiants over the years but Darlene Rice of A Unique Wedding by Darlene is by far one of the very few that are at the top of the list! She has that genuine warm, friendly and engaging personality that make her stand out as a consummate professional. Her ability to make the Bride, Groom and all the guests feel so comfortable is a rare gift and should never be under estimated! I've witnessed a number of Darlene's ceremonies and they are not the "cookie cutter" type we've all been to. She tailors the ceremony to fit the couples wishes, always personal and makes sure she puts their stamp on it. A Unique Wedding by Darlene is a perfect title for her! She's absolutely great at what she does and truly a pleasure to work with!!
Darlene is easy to work with and will make sure your wedding day goes according to plan. Darlene is experienced, professional, creative and affordable. She took time to listen to our story and will incorporate it into the ceremony while providing ideas for things we didn't even think about. Highly recommend her.
I've had the pleasure of working with Darlene on a number of occasions. She is a true professional! I can't wait to capture another Unique wedding!
