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 wonderfulSent on 11/27/2020

Such a thoughtful Officiant!
We had to postpone our big ceremony due to COVID-19, we had a small ceremony instead. Cindie was so helpful and kind along the way. She wrote a micro ceremony for us and was so extremely thoughtful with all the details she put into it. She is great at putting your thoughts and feelings into a beautiful ceremony. Her aura is easy going and from the first time we met her she felt like a long lost friend. My husband and I would recommend her to anyone. Honestly save yourselves the time and meet with Cindie first before anyone else. She was the first officiant I met with and we booked her then and there.Sent on 06/27/2020
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:)
