    We felt we could trust our sacred ceremony in her hands

    We found Aretha on Instagram, and after looking at other Wedding Officiants we chose her because we loved her modern style and poise. But it was actually our phone conversation before our initial consultation with her that we knew she was the Wedding Officiant for us. We felt like we were speaking to an old friend! She was very interested in who we were individually and as a couple. We laughed and talked on the phone for like an hour. We were all just very open-hearted and honest from the start and we clicked right away! Our wedding day was as beautiful in reality as Aretha described it would be during our consultation. Aretha allowed us to personalize our rituals and ceremony to make it special to us and our spiritual practices. She gave us accurate advice about the manner in which certain rituals should be conducted. She was so flexible, and wanted our day to be perfect! She coordinated her wardrobe so we'd be comfortable, she hiked to the park with us, over rocks, and dirt to our wedding location, and she was so generous with her time that she even stayed with us and took pictures after the ceremony, it truly felt like she was part of the family and our family absolutely loved her and spoke of how beautifully and professionally she officiated our ceremony. I felt very confident to trust our sacred day in her hands! Each time I got nervous about something, she'd talk to me and give me solutions or reassure me that it would be perfect. We highly recommend having Aretha as your Wedding Officiant. You'll be so happy you did.

    Aretha is a True Pro

    Working with Aretha was a terrific experience! Our original wedding was canceled due to the pandemic. After a long wait, we decided to schedule a wedding over Zoom. We found Aretha just weeks before our desired wedding date. In our Zoom consultation, she understood exactly the type of wedding we wanted—simple but with personal touches that would allow us to connect with our loved ones in an intimate way, even in a virtual setting. She quickly became someone we knew we could trust with our special day. While we were somewhat nervous about planning an event on such short notice, Aretha was a true pro. She listened to our wishes about the flow of the ceremony, including specific parts where we wanted family and friends to participate on the Zoom call. During the event, Aretha easily integrated our family and friends and led the ceremony with beautiful words about the commitment we were making as a couple. Aretha helped create a unique and fun experience we will always remember.

    I’ve met a lot of Wedding Officiants in my career as a DJ but by far, Aretha is definitely at the top of my list as the Officiant I will be recommending to future clients. She is very personable and knows how to engage with people. She is fantastic during the ceremony, makes the couple and their guests laugh which helps to make the mood less stressful. Aretha is also very professional and just very easy to work with. If you’re planning your wedding and looking for an excellent Wedding Officiant, I HIGHLY recommend Aretha.

  • Spynfo & Mr. Matrimony Entertainment Wedding DJs

    When you've been in the wedding market for over 15 years like I have you come across many officiants. it takes a true professional to bring insight, humor and reflection during a couples most sacred moments. Aretha's words and positive energy add a special touch to every ceremony that I've worked alongside her. She sets a great tone for the day and that is crucial for any wedding! She is by far the best at what she does! I love her and you will too!

  • Gourmet Celebrations
