Wonderful to work with!

Bonnie was so easy to work with and she allowed us to make whatever adjustments to the ceremony that we felt suited us best. It was such a good experience throughout the whole process she’s very professional and created a sense of calm through the whole process. On the wedding day the ceremony was perfect and people mentioned how much they enjoyed it!

The experience with Bonnie was wonderful! The ceremony was us! We come from a Lao and Filipino heritage and we had the ceremony uniquely made for us. There were laughs and many tears (happy tears =)). Our love story was very thoughtful and everyone who attended loved our ceremony. Throughout the entire process Bonnie was kind, accommodating and prompt with her responses. I don't think I can find a better person to be our celebrant. We Highly recommend her to officiate your wedding!

I loved my wedding ceremony! Bonnie was very responsive from the start of planning and all the way through the end of the ceremony. She did a great job capturing our love story during the planning process and expressing it during our ceremony. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her again and again!

Bonnie created a beautifully personal ceremony for my clients. She took the time to get to know the couple and made sure their personalities were reflected in each and every moment of their nuptials. I look forward to collaborating again.
