Greetings! and Congratulations on your decision to get married. I hope you are enjoying the process of planning for your wedding. As a professional, award-winning wedding officiant, I have married over 400 couples thus far, and am always honored when chosen to share in the couples' very special day. Many venues refer me to their couples as a preferred vendor.

I make sure that your guests feel appreciated for coming to your wedding, and I will go above and beyond to make sure that your wedding ceremony goes smoothly and is one that everyone will fondly remember. Whether you are getting married at a wedding venue, a restaurant, on a beach, in your back yard, etc., - I will deliver your ceremeony in a heart-felt, light-hearted manner. Besides getting compliments about your wedding reception, you will also receive compliments about your beautiful wedding ceremony.

Professional Officiant Role - Joy to Work With – Unbeatable Value

Debby was a terrific officiant – My wife and I could not be happier that we chose Debby. She was easy to work with – an essential attribute given the difficulty in coordinating a wedding. Our wedding was outdoors at our house requiring Debby to be understanding and able to adjust to the situation while maintaining focus on the wedding ceremony to deliver a beautiful and memorable event. All attending the wedding commented that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Debby had a significant role as the officiant in making the wedding a beautiful beginning of the next chapter of our lives.
Debby provided us with the written ceremony a week before the wedding for us to review and to become familiar with before the wedding ceremony. I selected Debby nine-days before the wedding date – She accepted – We were successful in a memorable wedding even with the compressed schedule because of Debby’s experience as an officiant.

My wife and I highly recommend Debby – you can not find a better value.

Words can’t describe how perfect our wedding ceremony was, all thanks to Debbi! We were able to customize our ceremony to make it personal to us, and we felt an immediate connection with Debbi as soon as we met her. She was personable, responsive and professional. We HIGHLY recommended her for anyone’s wedding ceremony!!!
