What a great experience!
Wow! We absolutely love Nanette -- she is so amazing at what she does and she's an amazing person as well. From the start we knew we made the right choice working with Nanette as we immediately felt a warm and comforting connection to her. She took a lot of time to deeply understand us as individuals as well as a couple. She also had us do several activities which helped us think, reflect, and strengthen our own understandings of ourselves and our relationship. This was not something we initially had even considered for our marriage, but after going through it we are so glad we did it! Nanette's process was invaluable and she was so fun and comforting all along the way. She has such a warm and inviting way about her, it really was a joy to engage with her. She did a ton of work to deeply understand us, provide guidance, and ultimately she worked it all perfectly into our ceremony script. And it was at the ceremony that you could fully see the depth of her expertise. She did such an amazing job officiating the wedding and telling our stories! The whole family was blown away by how well she did and how personalized the ceremony was to not just ourselves but also to our guests. We got so many comments after on just how well she did. We were simply blown away by the overall experience, and cannot recommend Nanette highly enough! She's amazing, full stop. And we look forward to continuing our relationship with her in the future as another source of inspiration and guidance.Sent on 02/20/2019

A Beautiful and Personal Ceremony
Nanette did an amazing job writing and officiating our wedding ceremony. We knew we were not going to have a religious wedding ceremony but wanted to have a personalized and meaningful event. She even helped us work in some Jewish traditions and secular prayers that spoke to our individual backgrounds.Sent on 02/14/2019
Nanette did an amazing job getting to know us as a couple leading up to the wedding. She really "got" us and it showed in her work. We spoke on the phone, email and met for coffee leading up to the wedding. She provided us with the ceremony script a month before the wedding. This made us feel calm and confident that the day would go off without a hitch.
We highly recommend using Nanette for your wedding ceremony.

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!
