Friendly and good at personalizations
Francesca was flexible in communicating with us over Skype calls, the phone, or email, whichever method worked for us at the time. She wanted to get to know us so that she could personalize the ceremony for us, and she did a great job at that through our conversations and the questionnaire she gave us to fill out. She was also able to give us some advice about possible venues in the Santa Barbara area, which we appreciated! I was worried that some of my requests for specifics in the ceremony might be silly, but she kept telling me not to worry about that and feel free to make clear anything that was important to me. I highly recommend her to anyone who values easy communication and ability to customize things.Sent on 01/07/2020

Warm, Organized and Efficient
My Husband and I had no idea how to go about finding an officiant for our Non-Religious wedding ceremony. I took to the internet and found Francesca on Wedding Wire and other sites; she had great reviews and high ratings. She was quick to respond to our inquiry and we were able to schedule a Skype meeting quickly . As soon as we Skyped with her we could tell she was the person we were looking for. Francesca was so warm and patient with us from the very first conversation.
My Husband and I had only ever attended Catholic or Christian ceremonies so we had no clue how we could conduct our own Non-Religious ceremony. Francesca was there to guide us through the whole process with open ears and great suggestions. She listened to every question and assured us with every concern we had.
During the ceremony I was completely overcome with emotion. Francesca’s beautiful words married with all of our requests came out better then I had imagined . It was clear to us why so many other couples had given her such great reviews. Francesca is such a lovely and kind person, We are so honored we were able to have her perform our wedding ceremony.

Beautiful Beach Wedding Ceremony
Francesca created a meaningful and personal wedding experience for us and for our family. She was tuned in to the beach environment that we chose and even included spontaneous reference to the seagulls and dolphins that joined the celebration!Sent on 09/17/2019
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!
