Amazing ceremony!

Jennifer was wonderful in helping to create such a personalized ceremony for my husband and me. Before booking Daring Celebrations & Ceremonies, we met with Jennifer to make sure we were a good fit. Once booking with Jennifer, she scheduled a meeting with us to find our vibe, and how we wanted to proceed with the ceremony. She provided a script, leaving some details as a surprise, that we could review before wedding day. On wedding day, Jennifer helped to articulate our love story perfectly. Our guests couldn't stop raving about our ceremony and how personal it was to us! Thank you for your help on our wedding day!

LD does not disappoint!

We had LD (the owner - Lynda Daring) officiate our wedding on Saturday 6/10! LD is full of energy, love and joy - you can really tell that she loves what she is doing. She is super quick to respond and also very helpful in navigating the endless possibilities of a non denominational ceremony! It was super important to us and our family that while there was no religion involved, that the ceremony was still heartfelt and centered around the love that my husband and I share and LD certainly captured that! She taught us about so many different things we could include in our ceremony that we had never heard of before and we were truly able to create our own perfect ceremony mix and match style with her packets. Her "secret sauce" had most of our guests in tears and we had several people tell us that it was the best ceremony that they had ever attended. We met with LD once in person prior to the wedding and many of our guests assumed that she was a long time family friend due to the personal ceremony. Her personality is infectious so if you're looking for someone low key she may not be your person but if you are looking for someone who genuinely loves what they're doing and will love you like family too, I highly recommend her!
