    The Absolute Best!

    Let's talk about my wedding nightmare, three weeks before our ceremony our officiant informed us that they would not be available for our ceremony. Not a problem I thought, I quickly found a second officiant who then cancelled on me a week later. I looked for recommendations from a few people and was given Rachel's contact information, and could not be more pleased with how not only the ceremony came out, but how natural everything felt.

    Right after getting off the phone with her the first time I immediately felt better and that everything was going to be great. She walked through everything on the phone with me, and there could not have been a better person to officiate our wedding. When everything was all said and done it felt like we had been planning this for months. The attention to detail was great, Rachel fit right in to the group and made the wedding fun, and made sure to give us little tips on how to get the best pictures of our wedding.

    It's not often that you get married, and looking back I'm glad everything worked out the way it did. We had a small group but are still getting compliments about the ceremony and just how great it was. Thank you again Rachel for stepping up at the last minute and really making it an incredible day!

    Ceremony by Rachael's reply:

    Aw Nick, this is AMAZING! I'm so happy to have been the third and final officiant for you! Haha! I loved every second of our (rather rushed) planning together, and I am so happy I was able to provide a comfortable, upbeat, and detailed ceremony for you and Ellen. Please be sure to keep in touch!

    Great Officiant!

    Working with Rachael was absolutely amazing! We started by chatting about our very unique non-religious Hindu Christian wedding and put together the entire ceremony. After a few revisions we had a final draft and Rachael performed our ceremony flawlessly, on her part! We had little crazy issues like the garland breaking, but Rachael was great at making a joke or pivoting and keeping the ceremony fun and on track. All our friends and family commented on how great the unique ceremony was and what a great job Rachael did. One very unique element was that she made sure to not be in all the photos and she would give us little cues like hold hands act you love each other. She was great and we were so happy we chose her to be our officiant!

    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!
