    Ceremony to remember!!

    Naomi prepared such a beautiful and memorable ceremony for us. We got so many positive comments from our families! She had a wonderful process for getting to know us as a couple and for helping us to reflect on our own relationship. These insights were incorporated into a very personalized and special ceremony that we will always cherish. Working with her has honestly been one of the best aspects of the wedding!

    Wonderful and memorable ceremony

    Naomi was wonderful to work with. She created a beautiful ceremony for us. It was full of laughter, happiness and emotions. We will cherish it forever, and our friends and family will remember it with fondness forever.
    Naomi always made herself available to us throughout the whole process, which took several months. Corresponding with us by email, text, phone call and in person. She helped us write our vows and got to know us both personally. We really trusted her, and it was a fun and enjoyable experience to work with her.

    Naomi is one of a kind! I've never met an officiant who is as passionate as Naomi. We met a bridal show and was blown away by her love and kindness - she really does care for the couples she marries! I would highly recommend Naomi and will recommend her to all my clients.

    Rev. Naomi is an amazing ceremonialist that has a flair for Officiating Weddings with decadence and intimacy that reflects the couple. Her style is unique but with great depth. I would recommend her to any couple who desires an intimate ceremony that radiates their love they have for each other! with love, Rev. Tedda
