Denise was an incredible officiant for us. We found her on WeddingWire and are so glad we went with her. From the moment we met her in our initial meeting, we could tell she was going to provide us with a service that would be unique to us. We wanted a very short ceremony that was intimate and still capture the emotions we were feeling that day. Denise was so accommodating in helping us design a ceremony and vows that would be a true testament to our relationship. She did a great job keeping the ceremony rolling and making sure we were prepared through the rehearsal. My husband and I did not want a very religious ceremony, and Denise was great at helping us to come up with a way to incorporate a short prayer but then highlight the other aspects of marriage as well. We would highly recommend Denise to anyone who is in search of an officiant who is experienced, organized, and flexible!Sent on 09/27/2018
