An imperfectly perfect wedding day!

Doc, as I fondly refer to Dr. Darlene Williams-Prades provided counseling services prior to our nuptials. Doc is probably one of the few officiants that also provides life coaching after your ceremony. Doc, provided a wonderful ceremony that was curtailed to the description of our love story. She was prompt, exuded professionalism and the best part is her genuineness to meet each couple where they are without judgment.

Rev Darlene is Awesome!!

Let's start with my first phone call to Rev./Dr. Darlene was very pleasant on the phone. I felt like I have known her all my life. (I pray before making my phone calls). She then explained her services, and from that phone call, I stooped looking. Best decision.
She offered premarital counseling and provided us with "real-world advice with biblical content. Her love for God, life, and desire to see us succeed in our marriage shows in every piece of advice she gives us. I will recommend her services 100%.
You will be satisfied.

Darlene was amazing. Even took the time to play my husbands vows in Spanish. She is very personable and down to earth.

I would definitely recommend Darlene. She was early and had very good communication. She was very personable and made the ceremony feel very relaxed.
