Like working with a friend
I just got off the phone with Cynthia & I am so excited to be booking her as our officiant for our wedding next year. I literally felt like I was talking to an old friend she’s so personable & friendly. Even though I am heterosexual I have strong beliefs in the fact that love is love regardless of gender & she is more than happy to perform same sex marriages. I believe that divorce is necessary when things aren’t working & you’ve tried to make it work- she has no issue with & doesn’t judge people who are divorced. I want the person performing our ceremony to be someone who holds similar beliefs. I am agnostic- she isn’t but took no issue with that & didn’t preach religion to me when I told her that. She even started giving me great advice on ways to save money on our multiple upcoming expenses & recommendations of great vendors since this will be a destination wedding making it difficult to know the best people & deals out there. She also said she’ll be happy to customize our vows, gave me suggestions on them & is going to send me some sample vows to help me with ideas to make it the perfect day. I can’t wait til our special day & look forward to her making our love official!Sent on 01/20/2019

Enchanting ceremony - delightful officiant

.....When you know you are where you are meant to be with the one officiant who is designed to transform your dreams into your reality. This is exactly what Cynthia has done for us. She received our plans of elopement with only a few days notice prior to our requested ceremony date. We emailed her on Saturday evening and though she was out with friends, within minutes we received her reply.
She communicated with us regularly, ensuring that everything was exactly the way we envisioned. Cynthia offered suggestions and recommendations that added even more beauty to the most intimate moment of our lives. Cynthia’s expertise was very evident throughout the entire process leading up to and during the ceremony.
The best services always extend from those who love what they do, and Cynthia was no exception to the rule. Her kindness and joyful spirit bestowed before, during and after our ceremony will always be remembered with gratitude and thanksgiving.
I've known Cynthia for over 10 years - knowledgable, level headed, caring, flexible - her service will make your special day beautiful and memorable!
If you're looking for an officiant who makes you feel comfortable and like she's know you forever, Cynthia is your gal!!! Gorgeous, professional and creative ceremonies!!!
