Wonderful Officiant

I just got married on 9/16/23 and Helen Emberly was our officiant. We found Helen through our venue's wedding fair. We got married at Fairview Events Sonoma County at Foxtail Golf Club in Rohnert Park, CA. When we met Helen at the wedding fair we immediately had a good connection with her. She is so warm and friendly and completely puts you at ease. Her years of experience and her professionalism showed in her planning process with us, as well as her execution of the ceremony at our wedding. Helen was a pleasure to work with and I'm sure she will continue to be a wonderful officiant for all couples who choose her to officiate their wedding. I highly recommend Helen as a wedding officiant, as she can tailor her ceremony to fit your needs. My husband and I are not religious and we knew that we wanted a sentimental ceremony with someone experienced who could convey the message of love and commitment. Helen was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend Helen for all couples who wish to get married.

A fantastic officiant!

Helen officiated our wedding in June of 2023 and she did an amazing job! She worked closely with us in the preceding months to come up with a great ceremony that closely matches our belief system and always had a great understanding of what we wanted in our ceremony. My wife and I highly recommend her!
