Joyful and Thorough!

Zia helped us create an absolutely unforgettable wedding day. We deeply appreciate the thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and heart Zia poured into our ceremony. It was a pleasure working with her in the months leading up to the wedding day; her dependability and meaningful communication put us at ease during what could be a stressful time period. Likewise, everyone we've spoken to has been so complimentary of Zia's passion and personalization. It was the most important part of our day and she absolutely nailed it.

Exceptional.

When my now Wife and I were looking for an officiant we had a couple things that were important to us. 1 - being inclusive. 2 - understanding we are not traditional.

And then we met Zia.

We knew immediately we were safe in her hands and our ceremony was important. Zia worked with us in all capacities to ensure our ceremony was exactly how we wanted. Add more, take out sections, whichever.

The day of our ceremony you could feel the radiant energy that Zia is. She brought so much joy and love.

I could not recommend anyone better. You will forever love your choice having Zia officiate your ceremony.

Memorable and Unique

Zia officiated our wedding a few months ago and we had a great experience with her. Zia's dedication to her role was immediately apparent, bringing a warmth and thoughtfulness that resonated with us from the beginning. She has a lot of experience and has her own structured program for creating the wedding ceremony and vows, which was great since we didn't really know where to start. We met with her twice via zoom to go over the ceremony and our vows. She also offered advice on obtaining a marriage license. She was always very easy to communicate with and organized. Her ceremonies have a very distinct and memorable style and we were happy that our ceremony was unique. Throughout the entire process we felt like we were in good hands and would highly recommend Zia as a wedding officiant!
