We love Debby! Our wedding ceremony was so important to us. We didn’t want to pick just anyone to be part of that. Debby got us. She seemed to know just what we wanted and was able to guide us to the perfect ceremony. She gave us homework so she was able to get all the information she needed to put the perfect, lovely, personal ceremony together. I was very nervous standing in front of all my guests, and having Debby there kept me calm. She’s warm, loving and just a wonderful person and officiant. Not to mention she’s fun to work with. If you say the right thing, it may cause her to break into song! She definitely made the right career choice and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone and everyone! And I do! She made our day very special.Sent on 09/24/2014

Debby was the perfect officiant for us. She came to our home and got to know us over coffee with a sample ceremony in tow that had us in tears. Debby has a wide-ranging collection of readings on love and relationships that you could never find from an internet search on "readings for a wedding." When we received the first draft of our ceremony, we thought it was pretty much perfect right away. But she was always encouraging when we made a small change or had a question about how something should flow. In our ceremony, she managed to communicate who we are and what's important to us while still being interesting for our guests to listen to. After the ceremony and at the reception, nearly every guest was gushing to us and to our parents about Debby and the ceremony and how perfectly it discussed love and relationships and us. People left feeling like they knew us better and even our very religious family members were blown away at how personal and yet universal the sentiments were (I'd describe the ceremony as literary and poetic rather than religious, which is very much what we wanted). She made the preparation process and the big day smooth and stress-free and we couldn't be happier.Sent on 04/18/2018
