I’m so happy that I found Rosaria!!!

We didn’t have a big wedding we just had quick ceremony in the office but Rosaria managed to make it very sweet and special ❤️ She gave us very wise advice for our marriage but it didn’t feel inappropriate just the opposite … And vows she picked were so deep and beautiful that made us both cry!

Forever Thankful

Simply put, Rosaria is a top notch choice of officiant for your wedding day. She welcomed us and made our day so very memorable. She has a calming aura to her that dissolves all worries about the process. She has a lovely conference room if you are a short notice couple like us. She thought she may be rusty on her Spanish, but she conducted our wedding in Spanish with clarity and poise. I can’t recommend her enough. 5 stars across the board. Thank you Rosaria for being such an integral part of our start of forever!

Rosaria is second to none!

Rosaria was wondering and extremely professional but also personable. She was at venue early to ensure everything was in place and ready to go. I was nervous but she kept me calm and focused but also had everyone listening to every word. She made our day even more special.
