    Phenomenal

    I found Sonia with Dearly Beloved on wedding wire after lots of research on other officiants, and we are so glad we chose her. She is so personable, took the time to get to know us, and absolutely nailed our wedding ceremony. On top of it she is an absolute blast and our entire wedding party adored her. Time flew by and we missed opportunities to get to spend time after the wedding, but we are so grateful we chose her and I would recommend her a million times over.

    Amazing experience!

    Sonia did a fantastic job! She was easy to work with, quick to respond to our inquiries, and made the whole process very laid back and relaxing. Being from out of town, we didn’t even get to officially meet until the big day but that made no difference. It was a perfect ceremony for what we wanted and it felt very personalized for us.

    Would highly recommend!

    Made our Dream Become Reality

    Sonia took our words and made them flow so seamlessly and efficient that we had numerous guests compliment our ceremony. Just as I told her after the ceremony although we only knew each other for a short time during this process, she made it seem like we had known each other for years. She truly is amazing as what she does!

    Thank you so much Sonia for making our ceremony exactly what we dreamed of!
