    Beyond incredible

    Denise is the best in the business. She immediately felt like someone we’d known our entire lives. She made our ceremony perfect for us. The words, the professionalism, the time she put into it, the recommendations, the perfect location. We cannot say enough about how wonderful she is. Don’t choose anyone else.

    Wonderful in every single way!

    Denise made our somewhat last-minute COVID-related elopement perfect in every way, magical, and completely stress-free. After our traditional wedding plans were dashed this year, my now-husband and I decided to elope, just the two of us in Big Sur. Denise helped us plan the perfect ceremony and had the most wonderful ideas on ways to incorporate our family and friends who could no longer physically be with us on our special day. She took the time to get to know us and our story before the big day via phone, and was flexible and responsive, since we changed our minds about the ceremony flow a few times. On the big day, she honestly felt like both a friend and maternal figure-- she showed up early, helped us get set up, and provided a calming presence to our jitters. She is a true pro, and a wonderful person!

    WE LOVE DENISE!!!! Thank you for making our Big Sur elopement dreams come true! JP and I will forever be thinking about the huge role you played in our perfect day (especially since you were 50% of our guest list)!

    Love, love, love her!

    If you are looking for an officiant to be sweet, lively, organized, timely, and tailor your ceremony to truly reflect you and your soon to be spouse, than Denise is your gal! She had so many great examples to pick and choose from, quotes and poems if we so chose and even, with our permission, wove our introduction on our wedding website of our love story into the ceremony, which was a beautiful and personal touch that made it all our own. Denise was very open to skyping and emailing to communicate and even offered to meet up for coffee if we'd like! She was a real joy to work with; her personality is infectious! Would recommend her without a doubt!
