We can’t even begin to express how amazing our wedding day was and Darlene was a huge part of that! We wanted a fun and personal ceremony and we could not be more elated with the outcome. It was absolutely beautiful and surpassed all of our expectations! Darlene had us and our guest laughing while never taking away from the true purpose or importance of the ceremony. We have received countless compliments as to how absolutely beautiful and touching the ceremony was, a few people asked us if Darlene was a personal friend of ours, and two of our vendors even told us that it was one of the best ceremonies they have ever seen! Thank you Darlene from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day absolutely perfect!!!Sent on 05/05/2018

We booked Darlene Schlesinger @ Personal Touch Ceremonies for our wedding. Prior to our wedding, we had an initial phone consultation with her to book, and then communicated via email until our rehearsal, which is where we met in person. While initially I was hesitant about not meeting our officiant until the day prior to our wedding, Darlene was very available to us by phone/email which eased my anxiety. She allowed us the flexibility to write our own ceremony completely, and provided us with feedback along the way. She was absolutely wonderful at our rehearsal, and is overall just a fun friendly person to be around. Unfortunately, due to a family emergency, she ended up being unable to be the officiant on our actual wedding day, however kept us well informed and lined up a replacement officiant for us, Stephanie, who was able to perform the ceremony without issue!Sent on 06/01/2019

Not only have I worked with Personal Touch Ceremonies and More on numerous occasions. I was so impressed, I hired them for MY OWN wedding. Whether you are looking for traditional or non traditional ceremony , Darlene and her husband Ed will take the time to help you get exactly what you want to make your ceremony personal to you. I would recommend them to any bride / groom, and when my husband and I renew our vows, I will hire Darlene, and Personal Touch Ceremonies again.
We highly recommend Personal Touch Ceremonies for their professional and accommodating services. Darlene is a favored Officiant of Laurel Lane Country Club. Wedding couples and their guests praise their professional, well organized, and personable manner. It is pleasure to work with them!
