    Kind, helpful, & knowledgeable

    Helen was very good at quick with responsiveness, she was helpful with a lot of experience and information, very kind and I felt like our ceremony was in good hands! We ended up having a close friend come forward and want to be our officiant, so Helen didn’t actually perform our ceremony, but it was absolutely nothing against her! She would have done a great job and I had complete confidence in her. I would highly recommend :)

    Helen Emberly Wedding Officiant's reply:

    Thank you so much Laurel. Wishing you all the best. It was a joy each time we talked in preparation for your ceremony...even though a personal friend of yours ended up becoming your officiant. Warm wishes.

    So helpful!

    I can’t speak to actually having Helen officiate - but I’m sure she does an incredible job! - but I still felt compelled to leave a review because Helen was so incredibly kind and helpful to me. I reached out to her looking for an officiant on a date she was unfortunately not available. She gave me some information on other options including offering to provide guidance to them if I chose to have a friend get ordained to officiate my wedding. I was obviously not well versed in the process and her kindness and willingness to help despite not conducting the ceremony herself spoke volumes of her character and customer service.

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Megan. And, for taking time to write a review. I trust your wedding this weekend will be very special. ~Helen ♡
