We live in another state & wanted to get married in our home state of Ohio. Windi was patient with us leading up to all of the ‘homework’ items, answered all of our questions (no matter how silly) & showed us love & respect every step of the way. The day before I realized I had forgotten to pack my wedding vows & I freaked out! I remembered that I had emailed them to her & I called her. She calmed me down, explaining that she was bringing a copy with her so I didn’t have to worry about that. She emailed them back to me so I could practice & she carried them with her so that I didn’t have to since my dress didn’t have pockets.Sent on 07/03/2019
She took command of the event & didn’t let any outside influences derail her. Windi dressed the way I asked her to, she made us laugh & she meditated with us before the service. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be there with us!
Windi was absolutely amazing!

Windi Noble: Wind Beneath Our Wedding Wings!
I had been a little bit nervous about planning our elopement in Hocking Hills. While my husband and I knew we LOVED the beauty of it and it felt like "our" place, we didn't connect with any of the officials listed on the tourism association webpage.Sent on 06/03/2019
Determined to keep trying, I kept searching, and eventually found Windi's information. After a few minutes on her webpage, I felt like I'd known her for years. We sent her an email and within a few days had a call scheduled. It felt like talking to a lifelong friend. She asked so many thoughtful questions and we knew immediately that she would be the perfect person to marry us.
From that moment, it felt like everything was taken care of. She worked closely with us and our photographer to pick the day, time and location and make sure we had everything we needed. She sent timely emails to check in and see how everything was coming along (which, having just started a new job and being stretched way too thing, I REALLY appreciated!!) and made us feel so at ease.
On the day of our wedding, she hiked with us to Rock House, totally unphased by the unexpected puddles and mud and slippery rocks. I cried so many tears of joy and absolutely treasure the beautiful crystals and herbs from the ring blessing service we added on.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Windi for helping set us on the path of marriage so beautifully!

I honestly don’t think I could have found a more perfect officiant! Windi was everything we could have hoped for and more. From taking our somewhat last minute request to do a short and sweet ceremony in the park with parents, siblings, and grandparents (we contacted her three or so weeks before we actually planned to have the ceremony!) to being helpful with ANY and all questions along the way, she was absolutely perfect. Her personality meshed really well with ours and she totally understood the vibe we wanted to have at our ceremony.Sent on 09/11/2018
Windi met with us prior to the ceremony to get down all of the details and set expectations. We opted to write our own vows, so once we submitted them to her she promptly sent back the ceremony “script” for our review. We loved it and had no changes to request! During the initial meeting she asked us a lot of questions to figure out who we were as a couple and individuals to make sure that the ceremony she wrote for us would fit us just right, and I think she did so excellently. Windi also offered some other really great services that my Husband and I opted not to use, but I think would be extremely valuable to many people (a sort of pre-marriage counseling type of thing, etc.).
My husband and I were originally planning to have our large-scale wedding in late summer of 2019 - but opted to get married this year with just our closest family for a number of reasons. We loved working with her so much that we are hoping that we can have her perform our Renewal of the Vows (approximately around our 1-year marriage anniversary) at our Reception we are planning to host for all friends and family next year (when our original wedding was planned for). I cannot recommend her enough - whether you opt to have a big wedding or a small and intimate wedding, I think Windi would be absolutely perfect. Thank you so much, Windi, for helping our special day go absolutely splendidly!

Windi is one of my favorite vendors to work with! She takes time in getting to know her clients!
I cannot say enough good things about Windi! She is kind, genuine, easy going and has a true passion for her work. All important qualities for a wedding officiant!
I highly recommend Wendi with Run to an Elopement! She was so easy to work with and helped with organizing ceremony to make the event successful. She has the ability to help design ceremonies for you to make it perfect to what your needs are. I love when my clients book her, she is so fun to work with! If you need an officiant, book Wendi!
