    Rachael makes it special

    Our wedding venue listed Rachael as a preferred vendor for officiants and we are so happy they had her listed. You can tell Rachael spends a lot of time making sure her work is professional and customer focused. Her website sold us and provided a lot of information right away for us to think about. Rachael contacted us right away after submitting an online request. As if we needed any more convincing our first zoom call with Rachael was refreshing. She seemed more excited for us than we were and we just met her. Her excitement and assurances that everything would go perfectly really eased some of the stress and worry. The entire planning process was done from across the country. We had no idea what we wanted or what we were doing but after answering a few questions, Rachael was able to send us a ceremony plan that had all the right options for us. After a couple rounds of back and forth we felt really good about our ceremony and were looking forward to meeting in person soon. We opted not to have Rachael at our rehearsal since everything seemed so organized already which saved us a few dollars. We finally got to meet Rachael the day of our wedding and it couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience. If you are looking for an officiant that has their act together and genuinely cares about your wedding experience hire Rachael!! Go Steelers.

    Rachael and Katie were amazing! My husband and I were originally planning on having a family friend officiate our wedding, but we’re so glad that we decided to work with these professionals. Rachael and Katie thought of every little detail in planning our ceremony and rehearsal, and Katie had such a calm presence during our ceremony. We really appreciated all of the little touches that made a big difference, such as Katie occasionally stepping to the periphery during the ceremony so that the photographer could get some photos of just me and my husband in those special moments. It was so helpful that Rachael and Katie looked over the vows that the both of us wrote to make sure that each of our vows had similar lengths and tones. We loved being able to have so many choices for how each part of the ceremony went. Rachael and Katie, thank you for helping us pull off our dream ceremony!

When we photograph a wedding and hear that Rachel is going to be officiating, we know that the ceremony is going to fun, whimsical, and sweet! She has a natural talent for engagement with both couples and guests and it's the little things she does that make photographing ceremonies with her so rewarding; from the moment of reflection where she has the bride & groom stand together and just gaze into each others' eyes to the way she steps back for the first kiss so we have a photo of just the bride & groom, her consideration and attention to detail is remarkable. Everyone loves Rachel, especially us!

You can tell that Rachael really cares about her clients and puts a lot of time into ensuring that the clients are getting what they want out of their ceremony. As a fellow vendor, i really appreciated how Rachael worked collaboratively and made sure that the couple have the perfect moments for us to capture during the ceremony. I highly recommend Rachael if you’re looking for someone who truly goes above and beyond!
