    Fun, unique officiant

    We had such a great experience working with Tamara, who was recommended to us by our photographer. My husband and I are not religious, so we were looking for something fun and unique. Tamara created a beautiful ceremony, with just the right personal touches. We included a ring warming at her suggestion for some of our more religious guests. She was funny, warm (even in the cold), and took care of everything! If you're an off-beat bride, or just looking for something non-traditional, no ordinary ordained is it!

    Thank you so much!! I had a blast working with y'all and your ceremony was beautiful and absolutely perfectly you two!

    Tamara did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. She was calming, had a good sense of humor, and put everyone at ease. As soon as we met at the rehearsal, I knew she'd do a wonderful job! Prior to the wedding, she let us design the order of our ceremony, and sent examples of verses for us to pick and chose from, making our ceremony personal and beautiful. I would definitely recommend her to any couple, no matter what your religious/spiritual persuasions are. Thanks Tamara!

    Wonderful officiant!

    Tamara was a fantastic officiant! She was very accommodating and flexible in everything that we wanted for our ceremony. She was perfect on the day-of and you could tell how experienced she was. She even stepped aside when it was time for our first kiss so that the pictures are just of us and the backdrop - my (now) husband noticed this and mentioned how grateful he was later on as the pictures turned out beautifully! She worked with us to create exactly the ceremony that we wanted and even skyped with us when we had additional questions. I highly recommend her!

    No Ordinary Ordained's reply:

    Thank you so much Beverly! You and John were great to work with, and always made me smile and laugh. You two are definitely the perfect match, and your beautiful celebration showcased that. Congratulations!

Tamara is a caring and FUN wedding professional that really knows her stuff. We always look forward to having the opportunity to work with her!

Chamberlin Photography Chamberlin Photography Wedding Photographers

We have the privilege of knowing Tamara both professionally AND personally! She was actually our very own officiant, so we know how much time and effort she puts into getting to know her clients and personalizing vows that are so very meaningful... On a professional level, we've also photographed weddings that Tamara officiated... So, we've had the opportunity to see the same level of personal care, that she gave to us, given to other wedding couples on their very special days...
