Ms. Pat is beyond AWESOME!!!!

Best decision I ever made besides marrying my husband. Ms. Pat picked the best spot for my beach wedding and helped us pose for so AMAZING pics. She remembered the small details which meant a lot to me. She was very patient and really professional.

Pat is the perfect Wedding Planner AND Officiant, all in one

Working with Pat to plan our destination wedding on Captiva Island was easy and enjoyable. Besides all the pre-planning, she was on site the whole time to coordinate and help with all of the details. And, she was an amazing officiant. We worked together to merge her ideas and ours for the most beautiful vows and ceremony. Plus, her delivery was warm and beautiful. We are so glad we had Pat, and would highly recommend her.

Pat is a true professional

We had Pat Slater officiate our beach ceremony on Captiva Island in May 2022. She is widely known in the area for her professionalism and experience. As we live out of town, Pat facilitated all of our marriage license needs prior to our arrival and for that I could not be more grateful. The entire process was seamless and it allowed us to be calm and collected when we traveled to FL, rather than having to worry about appointments at the courthouse and running all over to get our documents in order.

Pat was extremely responsive and prompt in communicating with us. She consistently got right back to me with answers to my questions or status updates on our marriage license. As for the ceremony, she will involve you in crafting it and ours was exceptional. Though both Catholic, we opted to marry on the beach instead of in church and Pat's words brought God into our wedding as well as meaningful advice and personal touches. Our parents were blown away. She made us both feel comfortable (it's not always easy being in the spotlight like that!) and it truly was exactly what I envisioned. I cannot say enough good things about Pat - she is the best choice and I couldn't have been happier to have worked with her.
