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!Sent on 10/31/2019

Helpful and Open to Whatever You'd Like To Do
Denise was a wonderful officiant! She gave us guidance on potential options for our ceremony but was also open to anything non-traditional that we wanted to do. Due to COVID we had some changes along the way. She was always extremely understanding and responsive. Highly recommend!Sent on 07/20/2020
