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!Sent on 06/13/2019

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!Sent on 10/14/2018

We cannot say enough about Bonnie! She is so compassionate about the people she works with. She is truly kind, friendly and extremely professional. Its a pleasure watching her work. Her calmness and positivity are contagious! To say we highly recommend Bonnie is an understatement. You are the best hands possible with her, especially on such an emotional and special day!!
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.
As a planner, I take the vendor recommendations I provide to my clients very seriously. Bonnie is a vendor I can refer to clients confidently, knowing she will take wonderful care of them. Bonnie is professional, organized, thoughtful and cares deeply about creating a personalized ceremony for her couples. She is incredibly timely in her communication which makes for such a smooth collaboration. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and has a lovely demeanor that clients and guests love. I cannot say enough great things about working with Bonnie and highly recommend her without any hesitation.
