Francesca was better than expected
When we were looking for an officiant we weren’t sure what to expect since we aren’t from the area. We are so pleased and grateful we chose Francesca. She was very professional and thorough. She really does care about making your day a truly special one. She took the time to get to know us and worked with what we were comfortable with and that really meant a lot to us. Most importantly, she is genuinely a sweet person with a kind heart and I really felt her sincerity.Sent on 01/03/2019

Above and Beyond Service!
My fiance now wife and I reach out to Francesca with less than two weeks notice for our elopement wedding.Sent on 11/25/2018
We had never met Francesca and met for the first time over a Skype call that lasted over an hour where we spent time getting to know each other.
Francesca was extremely quick to respond and guided us to write beautiful vows to each other.
Francesca wrote a beautiful ceremony for us and the entire time during our ceremony made us feel calm and loved.
Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without her, we are so thankful and happy to have met Francesca and she was such a wonderful person.
Love, Susie and Nik
I do videography and this is the first endorsement I've written for anyone. I often don't include words by the officiant in a wedding video -- and if I do, I sort of cringe. Francesca obviously spent time getting to know Deb & Phil. You could tell by how relaxed and happy they were during the ceremony. and her words, the pacing at which she delivered them were amazing. Made my job easier, and helped tell the couple's story. It's this kind of pairing we all hope for to help make a couple's day special. I really recommend her!
