Excellent Vendor!

We loved working with Darlene and Ed! They were super nice and easy to get in touch with throughout the whole process. Darlene gave me so many options for our ceremony that I was able to pick the perfect one for us as a couple. People thought Darlene knew us personally she did such a nice job. Ed also did a great job capturing our vision for the music for the night -- we kept getting so many complements from our guests about the soundtrack. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a DJ or officiant/or both!!!

A magical summer evening wedding!

My husband was being deployed and we decided to get married last minute before he left. Darlene at Personal Touch came through for us and gave us the most perfect, beautiful wedding in a week's time! She came up with the wedding location near her business, a charming park in Hope, RI where we were married in a lovely gazebo on an amazing summer evening. There were so many wonderful places there for pictures and the ceremony that Darlene customized for us brought me to tears. It was beyond anything I imagined. The perfect, perfect, perfect wedding and all done in a week! Darlene is hands-down the best professional in the business and anyone who wants to ensure that they have one less thing to worry about on the most important day of their lives should absolutely hire Personal Touch for their wedding ceremony.

Excellent Officiant!

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!
