Bonnie is wonderful!

Bonnie was fantastic — book her!! Her passion for this work was clear from her very first email to us. Throughout the planning process she was so helpful friendly, and organized, and the ceremony she wrote for our wedding was charming, thoughtful, engaging, and just all-around wonderful. And after the wedding, she provided helpful information about the marriage license and any administrative steps with the courthouse. Thank you for everything, Bonnie!

Most AMAZING officiant!!!

If the option was available to give her 100/10, Bonnie would’ve for sure been given the rating time after time. She was everything we needed on our big day. Her beautiful appearance all the way to her fun and exciting personality. She was so so lovely to have and will be recommended by every bride I come in contact with. DO NOT PASS UP HIRING HER!!! We are forever grateful for Bonnie and she will certainly never be forgotten.
During our ceremony she kept it fun and painted the most beautiful image of my husband and I’s love story for our guests. She’s the best!! Literally the best!!

Hire Bonnie NOW

Bonnie was amazing! She tailored the ceremony based on a questionnaire that my husband and I completed and it was perfect! My guests thought she knew us for years, but I only met her at the ceremony haha. Her ability to strike a balance to include comedic and traditional elements is unmatched. Several guests commented on how they enjoyed how she not only personalized the ceremony but ensured that it was unique and special. Another thing I appreciated is that she provided clear instructions to brides on the process of obtaining a certified marriage license and changing your last name. Bonnie receives my highest recommendation.
