Autumn will make your ceremony unforgettable!
Autumn was referred to us by our amazing photographer, Melissa Jentzsch of MJ Photogrpahy. From the moment we emailed her, to our first phone conversation, and throughout the planning of our ceremony, Autumn went above and beyond. Neither of us had ever been married before and really didn't have much of an idea of what an officiant offered, but it had been recommended that “we get one”. After our initial emails with Autumn which were detailed and timely and written with care, we chose Autumn. As it turns out, she was also “the perfect officiant”. The ceremony she wrote for us not only reflected our value systems, love of nature, and love for one another, but it gave our ceremony a magnanimity and poise which we could have never developed on our own nor with a friend or other officiant, we believe. Autumn is a perennial professional and an incredible deliverer without at all seeming like she is pulling from speeches/ceremonies “before”. Her words and story came from the heart and made our ceremony one of the most sacred moments of our lives. The night before the ceremony we had our rehearsal and she was there to help lead, provide guidance, and ensure that all would run smoothly the next day. To say the least, our 4 flower girls and one ring-bearer are all under 7 years old and at that point in the day were tired and emotional. Honestly, our rehearsal was a mess and we felt a bit hopeless, yet Autumn was patient, in-control, and compassionate with us and the little ones. On our wedding day, she again assuaged the little ones and made sure that our ceremony went off without a glitch and the little ones were adorable! I give all credit to this going smoothly squarely to her and her kind leadership. Again, we cannot say enough about how much her presence meant to us on our wedding day. If you are considering Autumn for your wedding, we can say with certainty that you cannot go wrong. Thank you Autumn!Sent on 07/28/2019

Now I know firsthand why Autumn gets 5 stars. Autumn officiated our wedding last month and did an excellent job. Right from the start she was easy to work with, friendly and professional. She wrote a beautiful ceremony and officiated it flawlessly. I would highly recommend Autumn for your wedding.Sent on 08/01/2019
