Bonnie was great!
We hired Bonnie to officiate our micro-wedding (8 guests). Bonnie was extremely responsive and super friendly. We didn't do a rehearsal with her since neither of us had bridal parties. We spoke with her a few days prior to the wedding and she walked us through what the ceremony would look like, what we should say, etc. She took care of mailing the marriage certificate after the ceremony so we don't have to worry about that, and she sent me an email with everything I need to do, in order, if I am changing my name. She was pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend Bonnie!Sent on 04/01/2021
Beginnings and Ends's reply:Thank you so much Darcy! You guys were a pleasure to work with. My only regret was not getting to meet Rhett! I feel like I know him. And you, my dear, were STUNNING! Much love and luck to you both.

Bonnie is the best!
Our experience with Bonnie was wonderful from beginning to end. Upon first contact she was super friendly and accommodating and sent us questionnaires to get to know us as a couple and they clearly worked because by the end we felt she personally knew us! She even managed to roll with an unexpected time change for our rehearsal and juggled things around to make it there, which we were really thankful for.Sent on 10/31/2019
The ceremony was perfect, the perfect blend of sentimentality and humor. Bonnie used personal anecdotes we had told her to make the ceremony feel personal to us.
Several people from the wedding raved about her to us, asking where we had found her. Even our photographer, who is a personal friend of ours and who has photographed many wedding, said it was one of the best he had ever seen :)
She made our wedding that much more wonderful and we are forever grateful that she made our day so special.
Beginnings and Ends's reply:Omg! That was so nice! Thank you. Thanks for trusting me with your special day. I love my job and I loved your beautiful wedding. It was like a dream! May your marriage be even better!!

The perfect voice for our wedding!
My husband and I felt a strong connection with Bonnie while doing our research on finding an officiant. We loved how positive, lively, and outgoing she is. She was the last option for us and we were so happy that she was our perfect fit. Her method of questionnaires to learn about who she is marrying is so fun and interactive. She used those questionnaires to make our ceremony and was beautiful! She made us laugh, used parts of personal story, and made it about us. She was the voice of our ceremony and we would not have changed a single thing. We are excited to go back and re-watch our ceremony and we have her to thank for that. She was so easy to work with and made the planning process with her fun! Thank you so much Bonnie!
