She is an ordained minister and licensed officiant who creates and presides over wedding ceremonies throughout the northern region of California, from Sacramento to Redding, including, but not limited to: Chico, Magalia, Paradise, Oroville, Yuba City, Willows, Red Bluff, Cottonwood, and Anderson. With more than 15 years of experience, Dottie enthusiastically strives to provide each couple with friendly, professional, and knowledgable service, as she works directly with them, creating unique and personalized wedding ceremonies. She realizes that weddings are all about sharing each couple's love and joy. She sees your wedding as the immensely important, loving and happy occasion it is. This is why she is committed and dedicated to making her clients' ceremony dreams come true, helping to set the mood for your entire wedding day. Whether you're envisioning your big moment in a traditional, simple and classical way; or, perhaps a more off the beaten path and out of the ordinary one, she's right there to help make it happen. Additionally, if you're not completely sure what you'd like, she's right there to share ideas with you... because, after all, capturing the essence of your love, and allowing it to shine, is what your amazingly beautiful event is all about.

She enjoys working with her couples very much, and celebrates the VIPs (Vibrantly In-love Partners) they are, with her generous, gentle and caring ways. Dottie fully supports marriage equality. If your venue is outside of the areas mentioned above, she is more than happy to accomodate special requests. As her own way of saying, "Thank You!" to the hard working men and women of the emergency services and the military, she offers a discount to those individuals.

    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.

    She is really professional and truly helped make the day special. The original minister that I was going to use had a death in the family and couldn't make it. She understood and we were able to put something quick but also was meaning full to me and my husband together. She helped with calming my nerves and she helped reassure me that everything went perfectly, which in the end it did. I would recommend her to anyone for there special day.
