    Heartfelt and Resilient

    I cannot recommend Cindie enough. As many of the reviews have noted Cindie is so thoughtful and friendly. The ceremony that she prepared for our wedding was as if she had known us for years and touched on many of the most heartfelt moments of our lives together. My wife and I chose Cindie after an EXHAUSTIVE search for an officiant for our Yosemite elopement. I actually found Cindie early on but we wanted to make sure that we explored as many options as possible. However, time and again we both kept coming back to Cindie's website. Reading her retellings of the ceremonies she had officiated showed us the level of thought and care that Cindie puts into her couples, which is really what we were looking for. Cindie set up a Zoom meeting for us and within moments we both knew that Cindie would be a perfect fit. She was kind, caring, and immediately got to the business of knowing us as people. Cindie then sent us this absolutely beautiful ceremony and I more than one time got a little mushy. I know how I interpret my wife's and my relationship, but to see someone else interpret it, after meeting with us for a half hour and reading through the questionnaires we sent her, so thoughtfully and beautifully meant everything to my wife and I. In the weeks leading up to our ceremony wildfires swept through the areas surrounding Yosemite and it was touch and go whether or not we would be able to get married at all. Cindie kept in constant contact with us and when it finally became clear that we could go forward Cindie then had to navigate traffic issues on her route and still managed to get there with time to spare. The ceremony itself was even more beautiful than we could have imagined, and hearing Cindie speak life into the words she had written for us had us laughing and crying as she continued. I will admit that I am a bit of a mush, but Cindie got me on numerous occasions even though I knew the story already, and had read Cindie's draft several times, such was her delivery and the warmth she put into making our story so elegantly spoken. As we were winding down later that night my brand new wife and I spoke effusively about Cindie and the aura and brightness she brought to our day. After the ceremony we spent some time with Cindie and our photographers just chatting as if we hadn't just gotten married. It was as if a long time friend had been driving by and stopped to chat for a bit. We absolutely cannot recommend Cindie enough. The energy, emotion, and brilliance she added to our day was simply wonderful

    Cindie Wilding Bird & Nest Ceremonies's reply:

    Jake and Sarah you are both so sweet and it was such a wonderful treat to get to know you and to marry you! I am overwhelmed and so very touched by your kind words. They brought tears to my eyes this morning! Thank you so very much for taking the time to write such a heartfelt review. I wish you both all the very best as the years ahead unfold. xo

    Best Decision Ever

    If you ever need an officiant for your elopement or wedding, Cindie is your go to person. As our party was traveling from the east coast, she made the entire process seamless for us. We had an initial intake phone call to make sure that each party was comfortable with each other. The process afterwards was pretty painless, each partner filled out an additional personal questionnaire in which Cindie created a beautiful story to share. For our ceremony, we wanted to be surprised and we could not have asked for anything better. Cindie was able to capture our journey to the elopement and brought many happy memories back for us. She was also very flexible during our last minute changes at Yosemite as we were from out of town and found a better location a day before the event. She also filed for our marriage license immediately as promised. Without any hesitation, if you are looking for someone for your officiant – Cindie is the perfect choice. Thank you Cindie for making our elopement magical!

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:)
