We hired Carolyn as our wedding officiant and were extremely pleased with her services. We discussed everything over the phone with her prior to booking. Her policies were very clear, and she provided us with all of the information we needed well in advance of our ceremony. She allows couples to add customized readings, ceremonies, etc. to their events, but we wanted a short and sweet ceremony, and that’s exactly what we got! We had a phone rehearsal the day prior to the event, where she explained exactly what she would do from the time she arrived to the time she left the venue. We also went over pronunciation and preferences for how we’d be introduced, details about the wedding party, etc.. She was very professional, but also fun, and her pricing is very reasonable. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant!Sent on 07/20/2018

Carolyn is very professional and a seasoned officiant. She made sure to prepare us for the ceremony and allowed us to customize the ceremony to best represent us as individuals. She was punctual and also very personable from the moment we met. Carolyn made our intimate ceremony very special. She was very enthusiastic and made us feel so comfortable in front of our friends and family on one of the most important days of our life. She also took a great photo of us and was gracious enough to share it with us. We highly recommend Carolyn Burke as a wedding officiant.Sent on 07/16/2018

Love, love, loveddddd Carolyn. I was a nervous wreak walking down the isle and hearing her voice just set me at ease. We’d spoke on the phone a few times and communicated over emails. She was great, handled last minute changes, and made our ceremony uniquely ours. 10/10 would recommendSent on 06/13/2018
Carolyn Burke - Officiant | Coordinator's reply:Hey April, your sweet personality made it so easy. We had to make a few changes, but the day was so beautiful and the Thornhill Governor's Mansion in Faust Park was perfect under the big trees in the shade. Many Blessings to you and Nick. ~Carolyn Burke Wedding Officiant
