Emily Gets It
My now-husband and I chose to elope not only due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also on account of my very tenuous health. We handed Emily a near-impossible set of tasks: craft a socially-distanced ceremony that captures the spirit of a complex, decades-long relationship in roughly 2 weeks. She accepted the challenge with joy and grace.Sent on 02/12/2021
In just a few short emails, video chats, and interview questions, Emily composed a ceremony with the perfect balance of weight and levity, capturing a dynamic my husband and I built to weather everything from our carefree undergrad days to our recent battles facing terminal illness. Her ceremony was so perfectly tailor-made that members of our family even asked if we’d written it ourselves and simply handed it to her! (Not possible – it was far too nicely done!)
In short, Emily *gets* people. She loves them. She genuinely wanted to learn our story, respected our stringent COVID protocols, and even enjoyed (virtually) meeting our dogs. Most importantly, she valued my experiences as a disabled woman and at no point made me feel lesser than my partner (or herself). She took an occasion that could have brought mixed emotions and ensured it only brought happiness. We cannot thank her enough.

Patrick and Seantel Wedding!
I worked close with Emily who provided me and my husband Patrick with a great ceremony. The ceremony featured jumping the broom, vows, laughs, and cries. However, what prompted all these great events during my wedding was the lovely and profoundly informative program Emily presented. The way she took our experiences and wrote them into our ceremony was beyond beautiful. You'll get no better experience and the price is really too low for the amount of time and quality she puts into the ceremony. Loved my experience and now she's going to be a honorary member of my family!Sent on 05/01/2019

Wonderful Ceremony !
Finding a wedding officiant to capture the intention of your ceremony is not easy. Finding the perfect officiant even harder. But we did and truly just by good fortune. So, this review is to help all of you out there with the search. We highly recommend Smitten State Wedding, specifically Emily, who was our officiant. We were married in a private ceremony on the west side of the State, overlooking Lake Michigan, August 30, 2020. Prior to our ceremony, we met Emily virtually (Zoom) and immediately felt comfortable with her. We wanted a customized ceremony and elected to provide a narrative of our stories to Emily. With that information, we had her write our ceremony for us, with the exception of our vows. Emily truly has a gift for writing and her time and effort preparing our ceremony was evident. Her enthusiasm and genuine love for performing our marriage made it perfect. Emily is wonderful.Sent on 09/08/2020
