    The most amazing Officiant

    Dotty is the best person I could of asked for to marry my husband and I on out wedding day. From the first time I talked to dotty we clicked and it was like I’ve been part of her family for years. She provided so much support and love through our whole wedding planning plus rehearsal and ceremony. I love this lady with all my heart and I have only her for about a year. She is very thorough and will answer all questions. She has been doing this for a long time and great at what she does. The day of my wedding I was nervous but once she got there I knew I was in good hands. She truly is the best and I can’t wait for her to help renew my husband and I vows in a few years. Love you dotty don’t ever change you are the best and I’m so glad we picked you!!!❤️

    Love her already!

    I had a one hour consolation with her over the phone and I already love her. She has a great vision for what I’m asking for which is not traditional at all, she is open minded and knowledgeable. I really didn’t want to spend so much for an officiant, but also didn’t want the anxiety just thinking about doing it all myself . With her reassurance on all that she has to offer and her professionalism I’m back on board with spending the money. Definitely would recommend her.
