    Beautiful Ceremony

    Zach was amazing to work with. We hadn't originally budgeted much for an officiant (we were planning on having a priest that we would just pay a small fee for). Long story short, we are extremely glad we invested in a celebrant. Zach gives out a survey to get to know you and your spouse. He did an amazing job of taking our answers and crafting it into the perfect ceremony. We got so many compliments from our friends and family. 10/10 would recommend!

    10/10 would recommend! 5 stars! A pleasure to work with!

    Zach created a special and beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. Communication was excellent throughout the planning process and he was so flexible and kind with all of the changes that had to happen due to COVID-19. We were unable to have the wedding that we planned but having the ceremony that we dreamed of and planned wouldn’t have been able to happen without Zach. Would hire again and recommend.

    He's Amazing and then some!

    Zach was the most amazing officiant ever! The first time my husband and I read his FIRST draft of our ceremony, we both cried. He seem to figure out our relationship and who we were and weave it perfectly into our ceremony even with our limited interaction. He took our direction and incorporated it perfectly. He was always timely and was great to work with. He put a lot of care and thought into our ceremony. He is a kind and wonderful human to boot! 10/10!
