Going into finding an officiant my fiance and I wanted to find someone who could bring together a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Choosing an officiant was the hardest vendor for us to find during our wedding planning process. We were so lucky to find Rachael. We met with Rachael four times before our ceremony. She guided us through each step of the ceremony process so naturally. Our guests absolutely raved about her after the ceremony. Many truly thought she, my husband, and I were old friends-that is how amazing she is at what she does. It was an honor for Rachael to marry us.Sent on 10/20/2017

She made it so simple!
My first contact with Rachael was so easy and light hearted, instantly i knew she was the right fit for us. Her personality shone through on the phone and through her text messages, and she was so knowledgeable about making everything run smoothly. We chose the ready-made ceremony as we were eloping, and I sent her some ideas of what i wanted, and she tailored it to fit our ceremony on the beach. My now husband literally was in shock of how easy it was and how comfortable we were with her. I cannot thank you enough for marrying us!Sent on 06/25/2019

Our Yosemite dream come true!
Let me start by saying Rachael was the most amazing officiant we could have hoped for. When we first contacted her we were unsure as to just what kind of ceremony we were looking for. We informed her we were not religious, and wanted something kinda funny, kinda serious.Sent on 12/12/2018
We had three more meetings after this, and each time Rachael was punctual, prepared, and informative. During these meetings, not only was Rachael able to get to know us as a couple, but we also learned more about each other as an added bonus. At our last meeting Rachael provided us with a script of our ceremony and we were blown away. We really had nothing to change, add, or edit. She told our love story better than we can ourselves, and crafted a beautiful ceremony full of symbolism and nature, which represented us perfectly.
On our wedding day Rachael was calm, cool, and collected as always, and delivered a flawless ceremony, which had our guests raving about her as soon as it ended.(And yes, it was kinda funny, kinda serious, but all us.)
We highly recommend Rachael to all couples, whether they know exactly what type of ceremony they are looking for, or if they need a little guidance to shape their perfect day. Her amazing personality, attention to detail, and creativity will ensure all couples have a ceremony they and their guests will not forget. In addition to an excellent officiant, we feel we have gained a new friend in Rachael, and look forward to more “meetings” in the future.
