The best of the best!
Words can't describe how important Rachael was to our wedding. The guidance she provided throughout the process leading up to the big day made things so easy. Rachael provided us with support, ideas, answers, suggestions and opinions at all the key moments during both the planning process and throughout the ceremony on the day of. Her ability to help you take in every moment during your wedding process for what's worth is what really makes Rachael so special as an officiant. She really helps you have the experience you want and deserve on your big day. The attention to detail and the little things are what really makes her special. Things like moving you closer together as she steps out of the way for you to have a special moment together as she does a reading, to the color coordination on the print out of our vows to help make sure you get some breaths in. (Much needed because without those color coordinated sentence/paragraph breaks I would have been an emotional blubbering mess through the entire reading of the vows). The number of compliments we got from people attending the wedding telling us how great our officiant was made us feel even better about our decision. I would and will recommend Rachael to anyone looking for an officiant, as I now know just how important it is to have the right person there for you as you plan the most amazing day of your life.Sent on 10/29/2018

Choose Rachael to officiate your wedding!
Our team of vendors was amazing. Every individual who helped make our wedding move through the day was exemplary in their respective industries, but RACHAEL was the best. She was our favorite vendor from Day 1 and in looking back on the weekend, we still have warm fuzzies for her.Sent on 12/17/2018
Rachael is a former kindergarten teacher and the skills she honed there - classroom management, being a calming force, and having a clear, smooth voice - clearly shined through and are EXTREMELY helpful in dealing with distracted (and probably tipsy) adults who need a lot of direction and a steady presence in their midst.
From our first conversation with Rachel, she made us feel so comfortable. She is impeccably organized and kept us on schedule for the year leading up to our wedding. She read our vows we wrote for each other to ensure they jived well and ran a super-organized ceremony rehearsal for us. The ceremony was beautiful and went off without a hitch - and it is because of Rachael. Our guests talked about how the great ceremony - and particularly, Rachel - was all night.
We cannot recommend Rachael highly enough to officiate your wedding. We love you, Rachael!

Working with Rachael was the absolute best part of the entire wedding-planning process. Having her officiate our wedding was the best decision that we could have made. From our first phone call with Rachael, she felt like a friend and I felt as though we were destined to be connected! Rachael seemed to always understand the feel that my husband and I were going for in our ceremony. She worked with us to personalize our ceremony and make it exactly what we wanted. She was patient with our changes and requests and offered advice and suggestions to help us when we were stuck. Rachael is incredibly friendly, organized, responsive, and amazing at what she does. As soon as the ceremony ended, we received nothing but compliments for the rest of the night (we're still receiving compliments 5 days later) on how fantastic the ceremony was. Our guests shared that it was the best ceremony that they'd ever witnessed and I give all of that credit to Rachael. Working with Rachael, and having her as part of our special day, was a true joy.Sent on 11/07/2018

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!
Did such an amazing job marring off a beautiful couple. Spoke Clearly and really helped the bride and groom with their vows
