Choosing Rhonda to play such an important role in our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and so romantic and Rhonda had a huge part in making that happen. She called about a week before the ceremony and went over every detail and explained everything so perfectly that once the ceremony came about we had no doubts on what was to come. Our ceremony was a fairytale and I am so thankful to her!Sent on 05/06/2019

Wet and wonderful ceremony!
Our wedding was in a park, under an oak tree. It turned out to be a torrential downpour. Rhonda was there! Early, prepared, and in good spirits! We were stressed because of the inclement weather, but Rhonda reassured us that she has the experience to perform the ceremony in any conditions, and also reminded us that it is considered good luck if it rains on your wedding day! The ceremony was performed beautifully! Additionally, our original photographer bailed at the last second because of the rain, but along with Rhonda was her daughter, a professional photographer who braved the rain and captured the moment!Sent on 04/24/2019
Magnolia Ceremonies's reply:Actually, I describe your wedding day as a downpour of love! Your day was beautifully surrounded by so much energy, laughter, and love. I enjoyed every moment and thank you for inviting me to officiate your ceremony. Arielle also loved being present as well, and states "rain brings such romantic photos." We will always remember the two of you. Thank you. Love, laughter, and ever after.

Best day ever!
We could not be happier with how our wedding turned out! Rhonda did such a wonderful job making everyone feel engaged from the moment the ceremony started. We contacted her for the first time about 2 months prior to the wedding and had several questions regarding details about the ceremony. She explained everything very well and told us that if we have any questions to contact her anytime throughout the process. We called her several times thereafter and was easy to get in touch with her. Everyone felt right at home during the ceremony, with her warm and welcoming persona. The ability to select a custom made script from start to finish is what made our wedding feel so personalized. We would highly recommend Magnolia Ceremonies for anyone looking for a unique way to express their wedding. Thank you so much Rhonda for making our wedding one we will never forget!Sent on 03/03/2019
