We were so very fortunate to find Rachael to be our minister. She was so professional and fun to work with. She made the ceremony process so clear and easy to follow from the start. Beginning with our first phone call, Racheal made both myself and my wife very comfortable. I especially liked her sense of humor😊
Rachael was very quick to respond to our ongoing questions and concerns as the wedding drew closer. This brought much relief to us during this stressful and exciting wedding process. As we provided our relationship history, Rachael created and beautiful and spot on ceremony. She captured our favorite memories, our relationship milestones and also provided a respectful notation for our lost loved ones.
Finally meeting her in person at our rehearsal dinner after calls and many emails, we both felt like we had known her for much longer.
In short Racheal was amazing! I would recommend her to everyone I know again and again. Our many thanks to Racheal for helping to make our special day happen just like we dreamed.
Thank you Rachael!

Our memorable moment
Tina was great! I wanted to change the time a few days before the event and Tina was able to accommodate us. She gave us a very sweet and memorable experience.Sent on 02/25/2020

Rachael officiated our destination wedding in Napa and it could not have gone any better. She was extremely professional, calm, and easy going. I loved how she pulled information about us from a questionnaire and put together the ultimate ceremony, even mentioning our dogs. I teared up when she sent the draft of our ceremony a few days before the wedding. It was perfect. Our guests were shocked that we hadn't met her/known her as a friend because it seemed like she genuinely knew and cared about us. We're so grateful that we found Rachael because helped she made our wedding day truly special.Sent on 12/08/2019
