Betsy is the best!

From the very beginning, Betsy was very kind, understanding, and organized about officiating. She tells you exactly what needs to be done based on your location/state, and also provides all kinds of templates that you can pick and choose from to fit what matches you as a couple. She also offers to come for your rehearsal (even attended on a holiday weekend which was so thoughtful), and was always quick to respond with any questions up until our wedding day. During the wedding, she did an amazing job, she has a warm and inviting personality, and she even met all of our witnesses and took a picture with us. She was the best choice for us, and you will be disappointed if you do not choose her. Thanks for everything, Betsy! - Jess & Trevor

Hire Betsy Now!

We had a couple of family members wanting to officiate our wedding and we just couldn't say yes to them. It's such a big responsibility and people don't really know that until it's too late. We hired Betsy after talking to a couple others and it was one of the best decision we made. She automatically felt like part of the family and was an amazing listener. Betsy had many options to write our perfect ceremony script. We even added some of our own ideas. She was responsive and quick to making sure we were all set for our wedding. Betsy had a wonderful presence and voice for the ceremony. I honestly don't have one negative thing to say about our experience with BT Weddings. Message her now and find out for yourself!
