Rev. Patricia Conte-Nelson, Weddings in Paradise

All my ceremonies are unique in their own way whether it's a Standard or Custom Wedding, Vow Renewal, a Celebration of Life, or Christening. By getting to know you and your needs, together we will create the perfect ceremony for you. Helping couples create a ceremony that will reflect their love for one another is what attracted me to doing weddings and Vow Renewals. I have been working with couples for over 20 years and it has been my pleasure to do over 200 weddings. I look forward to hearing from you and working together. Many blessings, Patricia

Heart-felt and Wise

Patricia sent me several options for the wording for our wedding ceremony. As soon as I read the first one it brought tears to my eyes. She is one of the most heart-felt lovely people I've ever met!

Best Wedding Officiant for Personalized & Customized Wedding Ceremonies

Patricia has been our spiritual guide for many years. When, after 15 years together, we decided to get married, we did not consider anyone else to perform the ceremony. We were able to customize our ceremony to fit our style and comfort levels and Patricia provided a variety of ceremonies for us to select and customize. At our reception and later on, we received many compliments asking about Patricia and our relationship. John and I would recommend Patricia to anyone considering marriage, or vow renewals, and surely, if we are around for a renewal of vows in 10 years, she will be the one to do it!

Stands out from the other officiants

Since you are reading this, you have already proceeded this far in your interest in Patricia and I tell ya you will not be displeased if you chose her to lead your wedding ceremony and vows with grace, ease and professionalism. Simply put, she is special and she will make your experience just as such. She spent months corresponding back and fourth with my husband and I as we chose specific themes, words and ideas for vows. She was dressed beautifully for our photographs, articulate and truly cared about our family and everyone's experience. She has a gentle gift, a wise mind and a happy heart. We highly recommend her to guide and assist in your most memorable moments. -The Butler Family
