We absolutely loved Denise! From the moment that we met her until our final moments together at our wedding she was amazing! She has such a calming presence and is so much fun to be around. My husband and I had a less traditional wedding than most, and Denise rolled with our desires and silliness. My family also adored Denise and continue to talk about how great she did and how friendly she was! Denise made everything about our ceremony so easy for us, including giving us ample examples of ceremony blessings, vows, etc. She incorporated all of our nuances and styles perfectly and made our ceremony unforgettable! If I had this decision to make over again I would choose Denise 100 times out of 100!Sent on 10/09/2014

Denise was such a pleasure to work with! We really wanted to create a ceremony that was very meaningful to us, but needed help putting everything together and figuring out what we wanted to put in. She had tons of resources for readings and such, and was able to accommodate our special requests. She was even able to help us modify a reading so that it was more suited to us.Sent on 12/20/2018
She was so friendly and thoughtful throughout this process, and we can't recommend her enough!

I’ll admit I stalled booking an officiant until last minute. My husband and I were having a very intimate, non-religious ceremony. We weren’t even sure how we wanted it to go and where to start. Denise was absolutely amazing! She was able to give so many options for our ceremony and helped us customize it so it was personal to us. It was so perfect and I couldn’t imagine anyone else marrying us! Thank you again Denise!Sent on 02/26/2019
Denise really gets to know her couples well. She offers a very professional service with just the right amount of humor and authenticity.
I've photographed many, many weddings with Denise. She takes each assignment seriously and with great care. Her words and presentation speak to the sacredness of the day. She is full of joy in her task and makes the clients feel unique and special. She is a total pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her!
