I discovered Cindie through Wedding Wire because my now husband and I realized fairly last minute that we still needed an officiant. I sent her an email asking for details and she responded in record time. She is kind and sweet and very professional. She was able to deliver our ceremony speech with more than enough time for us to read it and make any corrections we wanted to. After our ceremony our guests were awe of how beautiful and touching it was. Many guests said they laughed and cried which is exactly what we were going for. I highly recommend Cindie to anyone who is looking for someone who will listen to what they want and deliver above expectations.

The ceremony Cindie did for us was everything we hoped for and more.
Intimate, engaging, warm, beautiful. Many guests commented on how refreshingly personal the ceremony was and how much they enjoyed the story she told about us. As one guest summed it up, "*That's* what a wedding ceremony should be like!!!!"
We, ahem, only contacted Cindie one month before our wedding day. She took it in stride and, from the beginning, we felt both calmed and secure that we were in good hands. And throughout the next stressful month, she was gracious about not rushing us, while at the same time making sure we stayed on track. In every department, we can't speak highly enough about Cindie.
And finally: Gotta say, we knew Cindie was "the one" as soon as we spoke with her, lol. That may sound funny but we feel it's worth mentioning here. Even though we only met with her once before the ceremony, it felt like she was somehow herself involved in this process and we suspect this is one thing Cindie can offer that may differentiate her from some other officiants. Our wedding day just wouldn't have been the same without her.

Loved Working with Cindie
Cindie was exactly the person we were looking for to perform our ceremony at Yosemite. When we decided to elope, we knew we wanted something very personal and intimate and we had exactly that, as we stood in the meadow with El Capitan as our backdrop. Cindie has a great gift of turning simple questions/answers into a unique, personalized and beautifully written ceremony. She really made our day so special! It was great working with her throughout the entire process and would absolutely recommend!
Cindie was such a pleasure to work with. She helped to maintain a relaxed and pleasant environment while also creating an easy flow of communication among myself and the bride/groom.
I've probably worked with 200 or so wedding officiants over the last few decades and Cindie is one of my favorites. She has a way of putting an otherwise nervous bride at ease, and truly cares about the needs of each couple- for Cindie, its not just another gig. She also looks great on camera:)
