    Just fabulous!

    Denise was truly amazing! She was fine to completely do everything or work with the material I provided. She made my best person cry during the rehearsal and the ceremony and did an amazing job wrangling participants who drank too much. We didn't have nearly all the details ironed out but she ensured it all went super smooth--even our Iranian sugar ceremony. More than that, she made me feel beautiful and important and I would recommend her to anyone!

    Professional and Organized

    When it came time to hire the officiant for our wedding, we were relieved when we met Denise. Her professionalism and organization really impressed both of us. She was personable during our initial meeting and put us both at ease. We loved all of the options she provided for us when it came to writing our ceremony, and she made herself available for any questions we had. She had a calmness about her during our ceremony that certainly made me feel better and helped me stay in the moment. We would highly recommend!
