Top Notch Officiant

Rachael is the BEST of the best! She officiated our wedding and we are so grateful we got to work with her. She helps you construct a custom ceremony that is meaningful and representative of you as a couple. She is so personable, organized, professional, AMAZING, funny, etc. Rachael thinks of the little things no one else does, from which microphone to use to handing out listerine strips prior to walking down the aisle and even how to link arms when you also have to hold flowers. The level of work she puts into crafting the perfect ceremony really shows with her color coded schematics. You are definitely getting 5-star service when you work with Rachael! -Kara

Better than 5 stars!!!!

Rachael was absolutely amazing!!!! From our very first in-take call to after the ceremony it was so wonderful working with her. I did the pre-planning rehearsal package as well as the ceremony officiant package. The pre-planning rehearsal was a MUST NEED! Rachael puts together an extensive document of where everyone should be and really talks you through exactly how ceremony will go and if anything needs to be tweaked. The day of she gave us a quick run through in the waiting area to make sure we were all still comfortable with the flow. During the ceremony she made sure we were centered and in the best lighting for our photographer. She moved around so she wasn鈥檛 in all of our photos. She made us feel very good up there! Probably my favorite vendor to work with of all my wedding vendors! Highly highly recommend.

Working with Rachael was such a pleasure. She helped us tremendously with our ceremony planning and making sure everything was in line and accounted for. It definitely took a lot of the burden off of us which was a huge relief leading up to our wedding day. She works very hard, pays attention to every detail (one鈥檚 you may not have thought about before), and last but not least she is incredibly friendly & kind. We鈥檙e so glad she was apart of our special day!

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鈥檙e looking for someone who truly goes above and beyond!
