My Husband and I just recently hired Aretha to officiate our wedding, she did such an amazing job! Every one of our guests loved her and thought she was a family member because of how well, loving and genuine she was when speaking about me and him! From our first phone conference to see if we wanted to hire her, I knew as soon as I spoke to her that she was the one who was going to make our day even more special with such a loving ceremony. She really listened to us and knew exactly what we wanted. Our guests said if they get married or re-married they would love to hire Aretha. Thank you so much for everything, you truly made my dream come true by helping me marry by best friend!

My wife and I were eloping at the last minute. We had 2 weeks before our out of state wedding ceremony and everything was rushed. At the time all were thinking about was affordability because we were losing a deposit on our original venue. Which is why we called ourselves shopping around for the most affordable officiant. But I am so glad we did not take the cheap route! Aretha may have been doubled the price of other officiants but she is worth EVERY PENNY. Words cannot express how amazing and accommodating she was for our last minute arrangements. Not only was it last minute, our day was rained out as well. She pulled unbelievable strings to make sure our day was perfect no matter what. From our experience with her we've learned all of her reviews are extremely accurate. I highly recommend her to everyone! Aretha is the greatest!

Professional Network & Endorsements

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.

Aretha is a fantastic Wedding Officiant! Her ability to beautifully deliver your ceremony on your wedding day and the care that she takes with every couple leading up to the wedding, is the hallmark of a true professional. If you’re able to book Aretha (she’s booked up months in advance!) do it! You’ll be happy you did.
