Grace gave us the perfect ceremony ♥
I have so much to say about Grace, she gave us the most amazing ceremony! She is such a kind-hearted person who is easy to talk to and cares a lot about making your ceremony just how you want it. We were looking for a non-religious ceremony, which was no problem for her. She took the time to get to know us and our story then wrote a beautiful personalized ceremony (she's an excellent writer). When we weren't sure what secular readings to do she provided us dozens of choices and we found some that were perfect for us. She was super flexible and wasn't bothered at all when we wanted to make a last minute change to the ceremony the day before the wedding. She gave us an outline of what she would say beforehand but her actual words were left a surprise until the day of. Her words brought us to tears on the day of the wedding and had more of an impact because it was the first time we were hearing them. We really loved that she kept that a surprise ♥ When we had our kiss, she stepped aside so that it was just us in the photos, which was a nice touch. She was very professional and we felt completely confident in her throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend her enough, I know that she can give anyone the ceremony of their dreams. We got so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the ceremony was and everyone was in tears in the audience!Sent on 04/17/2019

Grace made our wedding ceremony absolutely beautiful. She was quick to respond to our questions and was so respectful and sweet to interact with while we put together the details of the ceremony. She seemed to love learning about us as a couple and weaving everything she learned into a well crafted, very special, and beautiful event.Sent on 06/05/2012
She doesn't use catchphrases or overly used standard wedding paragraphs (unless you want her to) and focuses on putting together something that truly flows. Her delivery of the ceremony is outstanding too. The whole thing was like listening to a poem or a story written especially for us, and we really couldn't believe how beautiful and meaningful she made it with only knowing us for such a short time.
I had many quests specifically point out that they were impressed with her (when was the last time you specifically remembered how awesome the officiant was at a wedding?). The ceremony was definitely the most important aspect of our wedding to us, but there is little you can do to make it special and meaningful if you do not have the right officiant. Grace is DEFINITELY the right one and we highly recommend her.

Where do I begin - working with Grace was the absolute best decision we made (other than to get married of course). We were a destination wedding, so most of our communication was done via email. She met with us one time face to face and from that meeting, gave us the perfect ceremony. We had a very small wedding, but she did a wonderful job making everyone feel like they were part of the ceremony. We truly feel like we've found a lifelong friend with Grace.Sent on 08/08/2019
We always enjoy working with Grace. She's a pro.
We LOVE having A Wedding with Grace at Bakers Ranch! Her ceremonies are beautiful and real. She can move all of your guests to tears of joy when she is performing a ceremony for your loved ones. You can tell that she truly spends the time to learn about the couple and you know that this there is no other ceremony like this. She creates the ceremony memories you want! High Recommend!
I love weddings with Grace! Whenever I have a wedding with her I feel as if I get to know a couple on an even deeper level. She takes the time to get to know her couples and truly makes their ceremony a day to remember. Always a breath of fresh air!
