Spectacular and Magical!
We could not be more happy with our experience working with Nanette. She was pleasant, kind and extremely helpful throughout our entire journey. Communication was always seamless, especially during a very uncertain time. We would absolutely recommend her to any couple looking for a celebrant and officiant. She walked us through the marriage license process thoroughly, with some important tips for getting a license during Covid, and worked to get to know us as a couple so she could tailor her speech uniquely to us. She was also universally loved by all the vendors we worked with in Santa Barbara. So happy we chose Nanette!Sent on 01/13/2021

We initially considered my brother-in-law to officiate our intimate elopement, but decided to work with Nanette instead. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our decision! After hearing Nanette's beautifully written and moving ceremony my brother-in-law even noted, "Yeah, there's no way I could have said all of that!" She really is THAT good!! She's also responsive, flexible, and easy to work with - it was a very streamlined and efficient experience that enhanced our wedding overall! Thank you, Nanette!Sent on 03/25/2021
Ceremonies by Nanette's reply:Sarah, thank you so much! I totally enjoyed sharing your special day and the process of getting there. Cheers! Nanette

Nanette was such a pleasure to work with, which meant everything to my (now) husband and I during this challenging time to plan anything. We eloped, just the two of us, so it was very important to find the right person. Nanette has such a wonderful energy and from the start felt like someone we had known before. Not only was the ceremony she put together lovely and modern, but she incorporated two poems we chose so beautifully into the rest of her words. Truly couldn't imagine a better experience.Sent on 09/03/2020
Ceremonies by Nanette's reply:Thank you so much for your generous words. It was a pleasure and joy to be a part of your love-filled day!
Nanette is one of the most heartfelt wedding officiants that you will ever encounter! Her ceremonies are beautiful, eloquent, and so genuine! I am truly honored every single time I get to work with her and I know her clients feel the same! I highly recommend her!!!
Nanette is the perfect addition to a wedding ceremony! Her infectious smile, and wonderful attitude, are sure to provide brides and grooms with the ceremony of their dreams. Not only that, but more importantly, you'll love to hear her speak. I love it when it is obvious that the officiant really cares about the bride and groom.
Stop right here! Nanette is the best around. If you want a ceremony that reflects YOU, and isn't a "fill your name in here" type of ceremony, call her now. We witness ceremonies weekly, and Nanette's is different EVERY TIME. How refreshing!
